6 Hectares in a Rural Community
Located 30 minutes from Malacatos in the small Ecuadorian community of Chiquil is this 6-hectare (14.8-acre) piece of land with lots of potential.
The soil on this property is really unique since it has little to no rocks so it would be great for planting crops. You can grow year-round in this wonderful growing climate.
Bordering the property is a large stream that flows all year round and has swimming holes and other cool areas to enjoy! There is also a smaller stream that runs through the middle of the property down to the big stream for most of the year.
About 2 hectares of the land is flat and great for building, while the rest is sloped. You could build a couple houses or doing other projects in these areas. The mountain and valley views on this peaceful property are wonderful!
The sloped areas can be terraced for garden beds or fruit orchards. You can also fence off parts of the land to create separate pastures for animals to graze.
Electricity is nearby for hookup.
