Unique Property in Sought-After Neighborhood
In the highly acclaimed and highly sought-after Yamburara neighborhood is this 1.5-hectare (3.7-acre) property with homes and privacy!
The area this property is in is very nice, private, and you basically have your own zone to yourself.
There are two houses on this property. The upper one is in good condition and is being rented out currently. The lower house is being fixed up. You could live in one house and easily rent the other one out for some residual income to start making back your investment.
Additionally, it would also be very easy to build more houses to make more rentals or even create a community.
You can start cultivating your own organic gardens and orchards in this great climate and live more sustainably. There is irrigation canal water going through this property which is convenient for watering plants.
The Yamburara area has a different vibe than Vilcabamba which attracts many expats. Because Yamburara is closer to the cloud forest of Podocarpus National Park, the area gets its water and rain from those pristine mountains.
This property is walking distance to town and is less than a 10-minute drive to town. Not only is it close to town, but it is near mountain hiking trails and is about a 10-minute walk from the river walking trails. Just up the valley is another hiking trail to a large waterfall up in the mountains! From this property you can also follow the road upriver to enjoy cool little riverside zones with swimming holes on hot days!
