New, Modern Home in Great Location
This new, furnished home was built with a modern design and sits on a large 2500-square-meter (0.6-acre) lot that is conveniently located in the Taxiche neighborhood in between Malacatos and Vilcabamba.
The kitchen, dining room, and living room all share an open-concept design. The kitchen features granite countertops and an island with bar stools. There are two bedrooms with built-in closets and a full bathroom. Throughout the home there is plenty of natural light coming in through gorgeous, large windows. These windows also allow you to take in the Andes mountains from the comfort of your home!
The house is being sold furnished, so all you have to do is move in!
While the house currently has a decent construction size of 100 m2 (1076 ft2), it was designed in such a way that a future owner can add on to make more space.
Additionally, there is plenty of land if you want to build another house and plant vegetable gardens or have a fruit orchard.
There is a private entrance to the property that is shared with just one neighbor. Because of this, you won’t have many cars coming and going by your house.
It is about a 10-minute drive to either Malacatos or Vilcabamba. This location is wonderful since you are out of the hustle and bustle of town, yet you have easy access to Malacatos in one direction with its gas station and variety of stores and then to the south sits Vilcabamba with its bigger expat population and many businesses catering to expats.
