A Charming Turn Key Home in Vilcabamba
This is one of the nicest properties for sale currently in the heart of Mollepamba at the end of a private drive, located 5 minutes (driving) from the center of Vilcabamba. The house is in an excellent neighborhood with other high end homes as neighbors and near to new club/restaurant/hosteria with the only heated pool in Vilcabamba.
The house has two bedrooms, one bathroom with shower and bath tub (it would be easy to add a second bathroom), and a large loft. The property is 13,915 square meters -nearly 1.4 hectares or 3.45 acres and the home measures 118 square meters on the inside (1270 square feet), and the patio measures 35.8 square meters (or 385 square feet). There is also a separate structure located below the house and amongst gardens consisting of one giant room (with the same ceiling-roof/nice finishes as the main house) that is currently being for storage, but has also been used as an office or guest room.
This is an expansive land that is nearly all usable and that could host additional homes or structures with their own private space separate from the existing structures. There are two small hills on either side of this property that buffer the space from any noise or view of the highway across the way. All of the land around the house and guest room/storage space is landscaped with gardens, walking trails leading to private sanctuary spots and circle platforms with views of the valley, Andes, and the famous Mandango Mountain.
This home is very well built and structurally sound. The owner was onsite during the entire process of construction and the team that built this house come highly recommended with a great reputation here locally. The house has a great feel to it with high ceilings opening to upper loft that looks over the living room and kitchen (open floor plan).
The master bedroom is spacious & branches off from the living room giving it a view window looking North at the town and mountains, as is there a side window viewing the gardens dressed around the master on the outside. There is a large wooden closet running the length of the entry wall (east side) of the bedroom. The bathroom has great natural light with a window, but maintains privacy as the window opens to the back of the house (south) opening to gardens and the back boundary (a natural fence with no close neighbors). The second bedroom is spacious and big enough for a large desk, bed, and has a built in closet as well.
The kitchen is well designed, has two large windows with views of the vegetables garden outside to the east as well as views the valley to the north. There are gorgeous granite counter tops and built in wooden cubbards. The living room has a stone fireplace and a built in sofa that can remain or be removed accommodating other furniture if desired.
There is a compost area, a reserve water tank for potable water, there is a site on the property for a well, and the house is currently running off of its own solar system, however, electricity is available as the neighboring homes are connected to the electric grid.
This house is being sold fully furnished and is definitely one of the most desirable turn key properties for sale in Vilcabamba.
