Lookout House + Garden & Gazebo
Nestled on a hillside in the quiet countryside outside of Vilcabamba is this lovely 4-bedroom home and productive gardens!
The home has three levels. Throughout the home are large windows where you can take in views of the mountains and Catamayo River valley below. The first level has the main living areas with the kitchen, dining room, living room, and a full bathroom. The second level has the bedrooms – the master with a private bathroom, and three additional bedrooms that share a bathroom. There is also a balcony on this level. The third floor has a loft area that is a perfect place for an office or art studio. It has big windows letting in lots of natural light and allowing you to enjoy the spectacular views. What great inspiration you can glean from these views!
Surrounding the home are beautiful, well-established gardens and orchards. The gardens have been cultivated for over 5 years so you can step right in and continue nurturing them. Fruits such as mangos, avocados, sour lemons, cacao, limes, oranges, soursop, bananas, and coffee can be found in this extensive orchard.
Below the house a lovely gazebo is perched boasting one of the best view lookouts on the property! Outside there is a storage area, a half bath, and a children’s playground. A large 2500-gallon reservoir water tank holds plenty of potable water for the property. The property also has access to the irrigation canal that is used to water the orchard and gardens.
The lot is 1328 square meters large (0.3 acre). There is plenty of room for guests to come over with parking for 5 cars.
