This fully-furnished European-style Yunguilla Valley hacienda on 3.2 acres of land is so special that you can only appreciate it upon visiting this magical Shangri-la.
This 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 used 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.
