Ready to Build Land + Orchard
With 7382 square meters (1.8 acres) of entirely flat land, this property is a wonderful spot to create your own southern Ecuador homestead in the countryside! It has an existing house, fruit trees, other productive crops, and is near a river.
The simple house has two bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, and a detached bathroom. Next to the house is a barbeque area with a wood-fired oven. You can fix it up to make it more comfortable or live here while you build a nicer home. It would be a great guest house, rental, or caretaker’s house.
There is a 1600-m2 orchard with many types of fruit trees and coffee. There is also 1500 m2 of land currently growing sugar cane.
The property has a septic tank, fiber optic internet, electricity, potable water, and irrigation canal water which makes it more seamless to start building.
The property is on three separate deeds, meaning you can sell one or two of the lots if you do not need as much land. You can also make some of your investment back this way.
Right across the road from this property is the Catamayo River that can be easily accessed. There aren’t any close neighboring homes, so this is a very quiet area!
This piece of property is in La Palmira, a small rural area 10 minutes from Quinara, an agricultural town where you can find basic necessities. Vilcabamba, with a wider variety of stores and restaurants, is about a 20-minute drive from there.
La Palmira has a hotter climate than Quinara and an elevation of about 1600 meters.
