Description

This spectacular 39+ acre Cumbe rural valley property, with a gorgeous 1,762 sq. ft custom home offers horse stables and nature at every turn. This home offers peace, tranquillity, and privacy in one of the most beautiful settings in Ecuador. Live a sustainable life in fabulous natural surroundings, amongst deer, flocks of parrots, and other beautiful, natural trees and flowering shrubs. Breathe in the fresh air, drink clean water, and hike through the scent-filled Eucalyptus tree forests above (but on) the land. The property includes a 5 stall horse barn plumbed for bathroom and storage, and as such is the perfect horse farm for horse lovers or equine training, 1 shelter in the pasture, 2 outbuildings, concrete water tanks, wooden fencing, a carport, potable (city) water, a deeded well, a pond, and irrigation rights. Originally established as a horse farm, this land is also perfect for grazing cattle and small animals, and for growing crops.

The beautiful custom home with arched windows and special details was completely remodeled in 2015 to North American standards and has 2 elegant bedrooms and 2 full baths, A new asphalt double tile roof was installed during this first renovation, and all new plumbing and electricity were installed. There is a fireplace with an insert in the living room that keeps you cozy and warm on those rainy days, closets with built-in drawers, handmade chandeliers, a sitting room, and other high-end finishes.

In 2022 a large sunroom and outdoor kitchen with a clay oven -- perfect for grilling meats, making pizza, cooking up homemade bread, or warming soup for a crowd, was built. When the wind comes through the valley, this sunroom is an ideal refuge and no better place for entertaining friends and family. A new septic tank, a 500-liter water tank, new fencing, and additional upgrades were also added in 2022.

The open-concept living area includes 2 living spaces, one with a stone fireplace and insert. The other is surrounded by arched windows and wooden beamed ceilings which currently serve as a sitting and reading room. Light and airy, with sunlight streaming in, this is the perfect place to relax with a morning cup of coffee. A dining nook completes this part of the living space.

The charming separate kitchen is perfectly appointed and equipped with a dishwasher, stovetop, oven, refrigerator, white cast iron sink, and a washer/dryer which are all included in the purchase price. Select furnishings are available, and there is a possibility of making this a complete turnkey, move-in-ready home should you desire to just bring your suitcases.

The master suite has a large dressing room/office, a bath with a separate shower, and a soaking tub for 2 with a large skylight over the tub. This is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine after a day in the country.

Good quality Internet allows for easy movie streaming and international calls, An ETAPA phone is also available, and Movistar works perfectly in this secluded setting.

The property is located on a non-through road so is very private and safe, with spectacular mountain and pastoral views. No big power lines are found on the pristine land.

Large plots of land on the property are ideal for expansive organic vegetable gardens, greenhouses, and orchards. The town of Cumbe is just 12 minutes away and here you can find everyday supplies, groceries, pharmacies, banks, stores, handicrafts, and clinics. Cuenca, the cultural capital of Ecuador, is 14 miles away. Much of the road to Cuenca is paved. When you arrive in Cumbe, you travel about 12 minutes on a dirt road, maintained by the local community to get to this special and private Shangra-la.

This is a rare opportunity to own your own very large and beautiful piece of nature close to shopping and an airport. With plenty of space to add other homes and outbuildings, this property can be turned into a family home, a vacation getaway, a spa or retreat center, or a working and live-in horse farm. The best part? With 39 acres, expansion, and growth are only limited to your imagination.
