Wonderful Homestead Site with a House, Fruit Trees, and Views
Located about a 10-minute drive from Vilcabamba in the Yasanga neighborhood, is this lovely and affordable 1-hectare (2.47-acre) piece of land, where you can immediately start your own organic garden, have a rustic house and jaw-dropping views of the Andes mountains in a tranquil atmosphere.
The flat, upper section, where the small rustic casita (house) is, gives way to the majority of the property being sloped. You could convert this house into a comfortable and quaint home with a few updates, or expand by building on or outward.
Going downward, the land is brimming with banana trees, coffee plants, mangos, orange trees, avocado trees, passion fruit and more. This property is ideal for one to fulfill their dreams of having their own homestead or organic farm. With the sloping land, there is plenty of space for terraced garden beds. Additionally, the lower part of the property would be great to cultivate a fruit orchard to grow more tropical fruits. This piece of land has the water, sun, and perfect angle slope for irrigation to make your garden dreams happen. A bonus is that the land has only been organically cultivated.
The water originates from the Capamaco River in the Podocarpus National Park, which is the best water in the area! The house already has electricity hooked up as well.
If you are inclined to begin raising your own animals, like chickens or pigs, there is already a rustic “stable” with stalls to protect them from the elements.
A wonderful location, close to town, yet far enough away to feel like you’re away from it all. It’s the best of both worlds.
