Property Description


Located in the rolling hills of Taxiche above Malacatos Valley, this property offers the best of Ecuador.


Sitting on just under 2,000 m2 (half an acre), this 240 m2 (2,583 ft2) home was meticulously crafted by an architect to be his parents dream home.


The planning and execution is truly impressive.


Understated and simple, yet elegant and comfortable.


Steel frame/adobe/brick exterior with ceramic roof allows the home to breathe and self regulate temperature. Polished concrete floors with bamboo highlights the interior.


A large kitchen with plenty of counter space connects to one of the 2 living rooms. The main living room features an all glass, sliding-door wall that can be opened completely (and usually is) looking out over the yard, pool and the gorgeous rolling green mountains of Malacatos Valley.


The water comes directly to the house untreated from a pristine source in Podocarpus National Park.


The home and grounds were constructed and maintained chemical free.
