Countryside Home & Guest House
This stunning piece of land boasts a main house, guest house, pool, and gazebo. From anywhere on the 15,058-square-meter (3.7-acre) property, you can enjoy expansive views of the Santorum mountains.
The main house is a single story with a large social area. It features a living room, dining room, kitchen with granite countertops, 4 bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. The kitchen connects to an outdoor terrace, which is great for a secondary open-air dining room.
The guest house is located behind the main house and has 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom.
The pool, complete with a waterfall, is located at the upper part of the property and is accompanied by a gazebo. The gazebo houses a clay oven, grill, and a counter with a sink. There is also a dressing room, bathroom, cellar, and maintenance room for the pool nearby. Having a separate pool bathroom, changing room, and outdoor kitchen area makes it super convenient to have pool parties contained more outside.
On the property you will find various fruit trees, including mango, tangerine, orange, avocado, soursop, guava, and plum. The highest part of the property features a small flat embankment of about 200 m2, perfect for building another house. This plot can be accessed by car, although the internal road up to it needs some improvement.
The property is equipped with an automated irrigation system, that is programed how you want it, and includes drip irrigation for the fruit trees and sprinkler irrigation for the grass areas. The property has electricity, fiber optic internet, and both potable water and irrigation canal water. There is a 5,000-liter concrete reservoir for irrigation water and two reservoirs totaling 1,600 liters for potable water on the property.
The home and other buildings were built just 4 years ago with reinforced concrete foundations, metal structure columns and beams, brick walls, and an aluminum-zinc roof.
The area is very quiet with low traffic, making it a peaceful and serene retreat. There are several neighboring homes, whose residents primarily visit on weekends.
It is in the countryside near Santorum, which is about a 15-20-minute drive to Vilcabamba. The property is easily accessible via an automatic gate at the entrance, controlled by a remote.
