Serene Mountain Home on 1.3 Hectares
Tucked in the serene mountains of San Pedro de Vilcabamba is this charming home surrounded by lovely fauna on a 1.3-hectare (3.2-acre) piece of land.
The home has four rooms that can be used for bedrooms, an office, sitting room, or whatever you wish. There are two full bathrooms – one with a bathtub and another with a shower. Above the kitchen is an attic with space for storage, or it could also be turned into a kid’s bedroom. Around the exterior walls of the house there are windows allowing you to take in the beautiful views from the garden outside. Outside, there are a couple storage rooms for convenient storage of tools and other things.
From your patio you can glimpse stunning views of the Andes mountains peeking through the eucalyptus trees. You can also enjoy watching birds visit the fruit trees and gardens on the property. This property size is perfect for those who want enough land to grow their own fruits and vegetables, but do not want to have too much land to maintain.
Sacapo, the area of San Pedro where this property is located, is a lush valley just upriver from town near the Podocarpus National Park mountains. With its location out of town, it is extremely peaceful. The water is fresh and pure, descending from the mountains, and is stored in three large reservoir tanks.
This house is up the mountain from the river and requires a 4x4 vehicle to reach it. It is about 20 minutes from Vilcabamba.
