A well built property that incorporates the magic of Vilcabamba into its location, design and execution.

Located off a well-maintained dirt road, just a 7-minute drive to town, this is a truly special and rare find.

Situated at the end of a private valley, with stunning views and multiple water sources, you are both close to town, yet private, quiet and peaceful – and best of all the entire property is situated to take full advantage of the amazing views and energy of mythical Mandango Mountain.

In total there are three houses adorning 2.8 hectares (6.9 acres) of land, each looking out over the stunning green mountains of Southern Ecuador.

Ascending the small dirt road with well built cement tracks for traction, past a couple of properties, you arrive at a dead end with a driveway going up to the left. Upon entering the property through a large metal security gate you arrive at the first of three houses.

The 3br/1ba, first, or lowermost house is the most rustic of the three. Perfect for a guesthouse or rental income – it is simple yet lovely.

There is also a large workshop located just below this home that could easily be converted into a guesthouse or caretakers cottage.

In addition, a large storage unit with electricity sits just above this house.

Continuing to ascend the driveway, past quite a bit of cultivation, in addition to some wild fruit trees, tastefully done stone walkways and ornamental landscaping you arrive at the second home.

This open floor plan, 1br/1ba, 80m2 (861ft2) home features high ceilings and a massive window looking out over the front lawn, grounds and on to Mandango. The kitchen/dining/living area is open and spacious with lots of light and makes excellent use of stone, ceramic, wood and adobe throughout to create a warm, open, inviting feel. This house also features a huge covered roof deck, perfect for yoga or large gatherings – it is also designed to be ready to continue construction by adding a second floor.

Continuing up a stone walkway, passing more fruit trees, gardens and a lovely lawn you arrive at the 1br/1ba, 120m2 (1,292 ft2) main house.

In its current form the first floor contains a separate office/workshop space with a large storage room directly behind and a beautiful covered patio in front. This floor could easily be connected to the house above or turned into a separate guest/rental unit.

The house is contained on the second floor and after ascending the metal stairs you discover a large sunroom/living area whose entire front facing wall is glass windows highlighting the majestic views the mountains with Mandango prominently displayed. Directly behind this seating area is the well laid out kitchen featuring lots of light, wood cabinetry, porcelain countertops, double sink and a warm, open, airy feel. Continuing past the kitchen to the left is a large bathroom with 2-person bathtub and ornamental stonework. To the right is the bedroom and behind the bedroom is a large covered patio and nature sanctuary featuring a manmade waterfall, massive crystal and is just a wonderfully inviting space to spend time and enjoy the year round warm climate and sights and sounds of nature. There is also a small office located off the back porch.

Other features include; beautiful adobe finishes, 2 meter reinforced foundations (earthquake proof), French drains, high wood ceilings, sprinkler system, filtered drinking water from Podocarpus, canal water, backup water tanks, outdoor shower, alarm systems, security bars and more.
