Magnificent Fruit Orchards & Houses with Potential
Come, enjoy these 2.38 hectares (5.8 acres) of land tucked up in a valley just a short distance away from Vilcabamba! This property has views, existing buildings, additional building sites, gardens, and fruit trees! Plus, it is in the convenient location of Yamburara bajo, which is one of the most sought-after areas in Vilcabamba due to its proximity to town.
There are two existing houses on the property that need some updating to make them more livable and comfortable. While they are humble in status, you could live in one while you work on updating the other house or while you are building a new one. You can even rent out the extra house to have some income.
The first house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a kitchen. With this house there is the possibility of building on top of the house to make a second story. The views from the second story would be amazing since it peeks through the valley towards Vilcabamba! The second house also has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a kitchen with dining room.
The houses are located near the access road and there’s a space to park a car within the property’s bounds. However, the houses are mostly surrounded by lawns and gardens. Going towards the back of the property, there is a fruit orchard with mandarins, oranges, avocados, guavas, and coffee plants! With such an abundance of mature fruit trees, you can start harvesting fresh fruit right away instead of waiting a few years for trees to mature.
The ever so slightly sloped land behind the houses consists of about half a hectare. In this lower section of land, you can build if you want to start fresh with a house of your own design.
Going uphill on the property, there is another area where you could build. Right now, it is only accessible by foot, but you would just have to put in an internal road to access it more easily. It would be worth it because from here the views are incredible! Also, there is a water reservoir tank up here.
While it is so close to Vilcabamba (a 5-minute drive), this property has a more rural vibe to it due to its size and the fact that it is tucked up a valley. The property is on a dirt road just a little way off from the main paved road that comes from Vilcabamba, which makes for easy access to town. It is even walking distance to town at about a 15-minute walk. On the way to town, you cross the river where there are river walking trails that you can enjoy too!
