This fully-furnished European-style Yunguilla Valley hacienda on 3.2 acres of land and is so special that you can only appreciate it upon visiting this magical Shangri-la.
The unique and gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,370 square foot Mediterranean style house has a wide 1,076 square foot veranda, surrounding 3 sides of the home — affording 220-degree views of the sweeping valley and ever-changing surrounding Andes mountains.
Located in the beautiful Yunguilla Valley, this peaceful and serene country gem is only a 1-hour drive from the historic, colonial city of Cuenca with all its amenities including shopping, top-notch hospitals, restaurants, and cultural activities. A direct bus to and from Cuenca, 5 times a day on a paved road, drops you off at the bus stop located at the end of the 100m driveway that takes you right to the house.
Situated on an east-west stretch of the Andes, the Yunguilla Valley is also 1,500 feet lower than Cuenca, which means a warmer year-round climate, a short rainy season, and plenty of sunshine. Everything imaginable grows here. There are also two large flat areas for extensive vegetable gardens, additional guest houses, a conference room, or a meditation center.
The 2 door entrance to your own personal hacienda opens into a welcoming living and dining area with high wooden beamed ceilings and a working picture-perfect fireplace that provides warmth and cozy comfort. A charming light-filled country kitchen, 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths make this a wonderful place to entertain family and friends. And the veranda provides an ideal backdrop for relaxing and taking in all the beautiful sights and sounds that country-living has to offer.
The unique single-level home has classic red-tiled roofs, post and beam construction, high ceilings with wooden beams, stone accents, blue shutters, and a European flair rarely seen in Ecuadorian country estates. A taste of the South of France in Ecuador!
A perfectly manicured lawn, stone walking paths, rock gardens, natural foliage, mature trees, impressive vistas, an enchanting creek, and stunning flowering plants and shrubs complete the ambiance.
This spectacular fully-furnished home and acreage is move-in ready and perfect for a bed and breakfast, a yoga retreat or a healing center and is also a very special place to live full time or as a vacation home. For an investor, the land can be split up into smaller properties and sold separately.
There are 110 and 220-volt electricity outlets, potable water, and a large reservoir for irrigation water.
The 104-mile Yunguilla Valley is a favorite destination for international investors. The temperate climate, fertile land, and beautiful views also make this a desired location for prominent Ecuadorians and is fast becoming a popular and exclusive expat mecca as well.
So if you ever dreamed of owning an Andean retreat, near a major city, this is the property for you.
The asking price for this beautiful fully-furnished European-style Yunguilla Valley hacienda on 3 acres is $290,000.
