Extraordinary Estate on 3+ Hectares
Magnificent mountain views, luxury finishes, a pool, jacuzzi, and a wonderful location on over 3 hectares in a private gated community make this home one of Malacatos’ finest offerings.
Beautiful hardwood, stonework, and luxury finishes are found throughout the home. With three bedrooms and six bathrooms, this home is set for hosting friends and family! The master bedroom has an adjoining patio and an ensuite bathroom with huge picture windows above a large bathtub. The kitchen boasts fine cabinetry, granite countertops, and sliding French doors leading to another outdoor patio. Perhaps one of the best parts about the kitchen is that the above the sink is a large set of windows that let you take in jaw-dropping views even while doing simple things in the kitchen. Many more windows are present around the home letting in natural light and great views. Adorning the living room is a fireplace that adds a warm feeling to the room.
A graceful ambiance extends throughout the home with many spaces for entertaining and enjoying life in the Andes Mountains. In addition to the master bedroom’s patio, there is a spacious patio off the kitchen for dining and enjoying time outside. From this patio you can access the pool. The pool area is above and beyond what a typical backyard pool consists of – there’s a jacuzzi and a sauna as well! To the other side of the house is a separate covered patio with a kitchenette and barbeque area. Next to this area is a fire pit.
Surrounding the home are landscaped gardens. The entrance features a cobblestone driveway with a drive-through carport. To the side of the house is another covered parking spot.
The construction area on this property is over 400 square meters. Remember, this estate has 3.3 hectares (8 acres) of land, so there is so much more you can do with this property beyond the amazing things it already has! For instance, situated above the home is another building site perfect for building another house that will have breath-taking views as well. Since this property is one of the uppermost properties in the gated community, it has incredible privacy.
Just a few minutes outside of Malacatos and with breathtaking views of the valley, the nearly completed development, Vista Bella, includes hiking trails, an equestrian club, and a large recreational area featuring a water park, soccer field, basketball, and volleyball courts.
Located roughly 1 hour from the airport in Catamayo, 45 minutes from the amenities of Loja, and 20 minutes from popular Vilcabamba, the development has a variety of shopping, dining, and eco-tourism opportunities in close proximity.
