Hilltop Lot with Great Building Sites
This property is conveniently located in between Malacatos and Vilcabamba making for easy trips to either town. The land size is 1550 square meters (0.38 acre) and has two flat areas perfect for building homes. A small slope divides the two building sites adding more privacy to each spot.
Because this land is on top of a hill, there are amazing views of the Yunanga mountain to the west and the lush Podocarpus National Park to the east.
The whole property is fenced and has an iron entrance gate. Electricity is nearby for hookup and potable water originating from the national park is currently being installed on the property. There is also irrigation canal water running through the property that can be used to water plants.
Overall, this property offers a clean slate for you to do whatever you want with it. Build a couple houses – one can be yours, the other can be the guest house or a rental house. Create lovely gardens and plant fruit trees throughout as well!
The location is great – it is just a 5-minute drive to Malacatos and a 10-minute drive to Vilcabamba.
