  • Jaw-Dropping 360-Degree Views in the Heart of Yunguilla Valley

    Nearly 20 years ago, the owner of this property began searching for the perfect piece of land. A place where he could recreate the experiences of his youth spending weekends and summer vacations at his Grandparents country home outside of Ecuador’s third largest city; Cuenca Ecuador. A place with enough room to entertain with good access, plenty of water for irrigation, proximity to shopping, restaurants and other services and most importantly, great views. A property without any one of these attributes would be a nonstarter. 10 years later, the search was completed. Just shy of 2.5 acres (9,740 m2) of land, the property is accessible via a graded dirt road that is maintained by the municipality twice per year. The property has plenty of water and an irrigation system to keep the grass, maturing lime, lemon and avocado trees trees productive and green year round. Situated just 10 minutes away from the town center of Santa Isabel, the property is close to all the conveniences a country home could possibly offer-shopping, restaurants, pharmacies, a hospital are all there. Let’s not forget the views! Perched atop a plateau, the property boasts jaw dropping, 360-degree views of one of the most sought-after destinations in southern Ecuador-Yunguilla Valley. Now you understand how a search like the one described above took so much time. After purchasing the land in 2012 the owner undertook a painstaking renovation of the existing 5 bedroom, 2 bedroom home. The renovation included (but was not limited to) a new roof, recycled primary forest wood columns, sourced from demolished homes in Cuenca, locally sourced eucalyptus support beams and bamboo ceilings to give the home a classic, colonial feel. Extending the under roof space of the home is a massive covered patio complete with outdoor kitchen with and custom, artisan clay tile-the perfect spot to entertain family and friends. Other features include a covered, wrap around porch, paved driveway, carport for 3 vehicles and more space for new construction. This Property is a real gem-let the owner’s lost be your gain.
