Country House/B&B For Sale in La Union, Azuay Ecuador
Magnificient, Turnkey Country Villa In An Ideal Climate
Asking Price: $495,000 USD (Negotiable)
Originally built as a weekend finca this completely renovated rustic style country house is one of a kind. With lots of love, a continuous conscious effort to keep the old look and feel while adding new and modern features we converted the existing house into a multipurpose and sustainable complex. We have rebuilt every surface area of the whole house and surrounding land. The ground floor of the building was constructed with Adobe which helps with keeping pleasant temperatures throughout the house without the use of heating or air conditioning.
The 8880m2 of completely fenced land has a registered survey – professionally done with GPS.
The land where the house sits is the highest part and has big rock features. The property immediately surrounding the house is flat with lots of mature citrus trees. There is a fairly steep drop down to the level of the hammock area and reservoir. This slop has a mix of existing mature trees such as avocado, guava, zapote, orange, papaya and banana. The terrain then gradually slops to the lowest part of the property where it flattens out and leads into a small coffee plantation (about 1’200 plants).
Situated in the southwest of Ecuador, the Yunguilla Valley is one of those places that have not yet been discovered by the masses. It is easily accessed by a highway (hyw. Cuenca – Machala – Peru) and only a short one hour drive from Cuenca.
The Yunguilla Valley has breathtaking views and great activities for nature lovers, including world-class bird watching, incredible waterfalls and the Andean mountains. This is also a place where you can literally live off the land, with opportunities to be self-sustaining, thanks to the richness of the soil and the warm, yet diverse climate. You can reach the mountains, the desert and the jungle all within a 1 1/2 hour drive. The property is situated at an altitude of 1500m (5000ft) with average annual temperature of about 23C (73.4F). Days are usually sunny but due to its altitude the night time temperatures are very pleasant.
