One of the most amazing finds in Ecuador.
Every inch of this 4,140m2 lot is cultivated with a staggering variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and medicinal plants.
There is also a small 4br/1ba (with hookups for second bathroom) house that could use some updating but is in livable condition.
The first thing you will notice when visiting this property is the growth. The owner has been organically cultivating with his own seeds and building up the soil of this property for years – using amazing methods of planting that incorporate ancient techniques as to when and how to cultivate. And it shows! The health and variety of the plant life is insane – truly a labor of love.
With a sprinkler based irrigation system, 2 small Tilapia ponds, chicken coops, security, outdoor lighting, the agricultural methods and house, this is not only a rare find but also a steal. The land itself is almost worth the asking price!
Not only are you buying your own ready-made, self-sufficient food paradise, but you are just a few minutes away from the town of Malacatos and have 360 views of stunning Malacatos Valley.
After walking the property while tasting the goodies, relaxing on the patio for few minutes and taking in the views and energy of the area you will feel so good you will never want to leave.
