This property boasts 38 Hectares (93 acres) of gorgeous fertile land with a great water source. It is located in the ‘Dos Puentes’ sector, on the Loja-Malacatos road and is only a 5 minute drive to the historic city of Loja. So although you feel like you are deep in the country, you have quick access to all the convenience that a city has to offer.
Much of the land is gently sloping and usable for almost any project you have in mind such as gardens, orchards, animals or whichever direction your dreams lead you.
There is a rustic 3 bedroom house and a barn already on the property. Although rustic, the house has potential, and with little investment could be a lovely landing place while you build your dream house.
The climate is cooler here as it is higher in elevation (2240 meters/ /7349 feet).
This has not stopped the previous owner from successfully using the 4 areas around the house by planting garden plants (potatoes, lettuce, beans, peas, broad beans, squash).
There are also a few fig, toronche, tree tomato and naranjilla plants planted.
The land is lush with native vegetation also which makes it so gorgeous.
This is a quiet area and has fresh, clean air.
The adjacent stream has clean, fresh water and is even used to provide some of the drinking water for the city of Loja! We would still recommend that you always use a filter system and not drink straight from the stream unless you have done your own analysis and feel confident of the results.
This property has basic utilities.
