Property Description

With panoramic views of the mountains and town of Malacatos below, this beautiful 3.36-hectare (8.3-acre) piece of land inside of a small development boasts an ideal opportunity to build your own countryside estate or subdivide to sell off lots!


Over 1 hectare of the land is flat and the remaining land slopes but is still usable as it is not too steep. This sloped area is currently covered with a natural forest of local trees. There is road access to the lower flat area and a lesser-used and rougher road going to the upper part of the land. 


The area where this property is located, El Carmen, is very sought-after to build beautiful homes, so property values are continuing to rise making this land a great investment. This means after buying the land, you can subdivide and sell off lots to make a profit. 


The property has access to nearly all basic utility services like potable water, electricity, fiber optic internet, cell signal. A sewage would need to be installed. 


Price: $290,000
