Adobe Home Hidden in the Trees

AL00-best logo for docs.png

Property Description

Nestled upriver from Vilcabamba in the Capamaco valley is this artistic home surrounded by a variety of beautiful plants and trees! Located up the valley from Yamburara, Capamaco is one of the most peaceful areas in Vilcabamba!

The home is built with adobe which is a local construction material that helps regulate inside temperatures naturally. This means that when it’s cooler outside, it keeps the inside warmer, and when it’s hot outside, it keeps the inside cooler. 

Throughout this two-story home you will encounter signs of an artist’s touch, adding charm and character to it. The main floor offers an open concept kitchen and living area. Off the main floor is a spacious balcony that boasts views of the gardens, mountains, and even Vilcabamba’s Mandango mountain in the distance. Above the living space is an enclosed loft where the bedroom is. To access the lower level of the house, you follow a path outside down to the daylight basement. This level has been used as a separate art studio, but you could easily make it into a large bedroom or even a mother-in-law apartment. Outside this lower level there is an open-air patio. 

The home sits on just over 6000 square meters (1.5 acres) of land that is full of mature plants and trees such as pineapple, banana, orange, tangerine, lemon, guava, and other ornamental plants!  

Just a short walk away is a pristine river originating in Podocarpus National Park where you will find swimming holes and lovely spots for relaxation!  

Vilcabamba is about a 15-minute drive away. 

Price: $168,000
