Japanese Inspired Modern Home
A beautiful three bedroom, 2-and-a-half-bathroom home with a sleek, modern design in a quiet and private part of the sought-after Chaupi neighborhood just a 7-minute drive from Vilcabamba! The property features riverfront land, a heated pool, and many fruit trees!
The home was designed by a well-known architect in Loja who created a custom contemporary design for this home.
Sleek finishes such as hardwood doors, recessed lighting, sustainably-grown bamboo flooring, and more are present throughout the home. Many of the fixtures, appliances, and furniture have been imported and are of the highest quality. For instance, there are imported Pottery Barn and West Elm (USA) furniture pieces, imported lights and accessories, a Sleep Number bed, imported Spanish bathroom tiles, and imported Samsung and LG appliances.
The kitchen features a nice-size pantry (it’s not very common to find a dedicated pantry in homes here), a farmhouse style sink, a dishwasher, and a nice island with barstool seats.
Huge 10-meter wide floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room create a flowing indoor-outdoor living space where you can enjoy unmatched views of Mandango Mountain. Other large windows in rooms around the home let in plenty of natural light. The master bedroom even has its own private patio that brings in natural light and Mandango views.
Right off the indoor-outdoor living area is the 3x9 meter heated pool tiled also with imported Spanish tiles. From the poolside you can take in the sun, enjoy Mandango views, and be on the lookout for birds singing in the trees.
The entire property is rich in nature because of the forest of trees on and surrounding the property. New landscaping has also been added to the property with palm trees, flowers, vegetable gardens, and ornamental plants. The forest has an abundance of trees including bananas, coffee, oranges, mangos, avocados, fig trees, tangerines, papayas, grapefruit, lemons, white pepper, bay leaf, and lumas (Incan gold fruit).
The lower section of the land is completely flat; you can build more here, plant more trees and gardens – the options are endless!
Down by the river there are natural trails that go along the riverside so you can meander up or down the river in exploration.
The home has 246 square meters (2648 ft2) of total construction size on a 6000-square-meter (1.5-acre) lot. The living quarters of the property is fenced in with an automatic entrance gate. It also has a high-end security system with cameras, sensors, and the ability to control via mobile phone as well as 24/7 security monitoring. There is a garage with an automatic garage door opener and enough space for storage.
The property is hooked up to potable water and access to an irrigation canal. It has its own powerful transformer and a large septic tank. There is thermal plastic layered roofing for water dispersion, insulation, and sound.
All in all, this home and property has all one would want to live a comfortable life here in Vilcabamba.
