This darling property is perfect for a small family and in laws (guest house) or as a rental- investment property. Only 7 minutes from the center of Vilcabamba this property’s location is fit for those who like to be close to town and also close to nature & hiking trails. Both homes are solid adobe construction and the entire 1,012 m2 ((1/4 acre) property boasts a high steel fence with foundation. There is parking space for one vehicle.
Both houses are newly built (completion in 2017) and connected by a bricked and railed pathway. The guest house is perfect for friends, guests, in-laws, or tenants. The main house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and it measures 110 m2 (approximately 1200 sq ft). The guest house (47.5m2 or 511 sq ft) has one loft bedroom, one bathroom and a rock floor patio cuddled with bamboo fencing. There is also a storage shed (or grand dog house) next to the main house. The potable water that this property and neighborhood has is excellent, the best in the valley.
The view from the homes and property conjure a feeling of awe and wonder, overlooking the Valley of Longevity & town of Vilcabamba below, and with views of the Podocarpus National Park to the East and the Sacred Mandango Mountain to the West.
This property has been intelligently landscaped to withstand local rains with vertiver grass (with roots over 8 meters deep) planted throughout the terrain to ensure earth stability. There are flat earthen patios in front of both houses and there are some lovely green spaces (grassy areas) that could be easily converted into self producing gardens.
