Upon entering the 978m2 sloped lot, passing through a large security door, you arrive at a small garage, just big enough for a 4 wheeler (could easily be expanded to accommodate a car) and are transported into a bug-free microclimate of green growth, ornamental plants and trees and a network of gardens and walkways.
Ascending the tastefully done stairs, which run throughout the property you are surrounded by nature at every turn.
Large Eucalyptus trees intermix with flowering trees, a few fruit trees, gardens and native shrubs and bushes of all kinds.
Upon arriving at the house you are greeted by a large, covered, outdoor patio, a great spot for relaxing and enjoying the perfect climate of Vilcabamba.
The house itself received a gut renovation in 2010 and offers a mix of high quality craftsmanship, unique design and pleasing material choices.
The first floor (entered through the living room off the covered patio) houses the kitchen/dining room area, a full bath, living room, a bedroom (which could also function as an office) and an additional back patio. The back patio and kitchen window offers lovely views of the surrounding mountains highlighted by Mandango.
The loft style second floor with t-frame ceilings and balcony is currently utilized as the master bedroom.
Wood and adobe style are utilized throughout the home.
A water canal runs past the front of the house, gardens, built in seating areas and a fire pit complete the landscape.
As a result of the planning and use of native plants in the vegetation surrounding the home, the property is in its own microclimate, staying consistently cool and best of all no bugs!
