8.5 Hectares with Pristine Water, Views, & Forests
On this amazing 8.5-hectare (21-acre) property you will encounter tranquility, pristine water, amazing views, and naturals forests just 20 minutes from Vilcabamba near the little town of San Pedro de Vilcabamba.
This piece of land is tucked up a mountain valley away from neighbors which makes this a super private and peaceful property where you can enjoy wildlife and nature. The soil is very fertile which is perfect for growing food and being self-sustainable. Additionally, you have water all year round piped in directly from the untouched Podocarpus National Forest.
This property is mostly sloped, but at the bottom of the property where the road access is, there is a flatter area where you can build a house. However, if you wanted to build in the upper section where the views are, you could make a road up there to have the whole property more accessible.
There are many trees on the property, which you could use for building or preserve as a forested area. Wild blackberries, babaco fruit (similar to starfruit, but bigger), and naranjilla (“lulo”) are found throughout the property along with other wonderful flora and fauna.
If you want to have some animals like cows, sheep, goats, chickens, or horses, there is room for grazing. Just imagine your own homestead tucked away in the Andes mountains!
In addition to having pure water, the air quality in this area is spectacular as it is set in a quiet valley surrounded by mountains and is so near the national park. On the way to this property there is a clean river where you can take a swim.
Currently there is no electricity hooked up, so solar panels would be the way to go and ideal for self-sustainability. You could install your own electric transformer if you want public electricity.
