Rustic Adobe House with Lush Orchards
This almost 2 hectare property (4.4 acres) is nestled in the lush area of Sacapo. Sacapo is just outside of the quaint village of San Pedro, Vilcabamba (10 minutes by car). San Pedro is the adjacent village to Vilcabamba, a popular destination spot for expats from around the world and is only 30 minutes from the historic city of Loja.
The location of this property offers you privacy and space, yet is close enough to popular restaurants, pools and event centers, that you can easily get the social you ‘fix’ you may desire.
At 1740m/5708ft, Sacapo has slightly more rainfall being slightly higher and with mountains that are more forested. This keeps it green almost all year unlike some of the neighboring areas which have a distinct dry season for 4-5 months. Great for growing crops, gardens and orchards.
There is a rustic adobe house of typical Ecuadorian construction. This house can be renovated or the usable materials can be salvaged for other building projects.
The wide area around the house is dense with mature orchards, coffee plants and gardens. It is really beautiful and lush!
The rest of the land (about 2/3 of the property) is ripe for use as it is gently sloping and very easy to cultivate.
The house sits on the upper part of the property. In the middle of the acreage, there is a wide, almost flat area which is perfect for building a new house with wonderful views.
This area is just far enough away from the roads that border two sides of the property, to afford you privacy yet, easily accessible by putting an internal road to this or any part of the property you choose.
The lower part of the property an irrigation canal passes through. Rights to this canal can be obtained for personal use.
There are basic services to this property.
