The most important feature of this property is that it is located only a quarter mile (400meters) off the main highway between Cuenca and Loja, making the access to his beautiful piece of land and its gorgeous log cabin beyond ideal. The benefits of this proximity to the main highway and the property being located only an hour and thirty minutes from Cuenca make this property truly unique find with unlimited potential.
Following the location the next most important feature is the abundant water found on this property. Strategically positioned at one of the highest points of the property is a 3,000-m3 reservoir. Fed by a natural mountain spring on the neighboring property the water supply is extremely secure and runs year round. All of the necessary components are in place to install a fully functioning irrigation system to help cultivate any number of crops and/or pasture to raise livestock. At the moment, the current owner is currently growing Tamarillos (Tree Tomatoes) Peaches, and Pine Trees.
As for Potable water the town of Susudel is the closest town being only 5 minutes away and the potable water lines run along the highway so the potable water installation will be economic and quick. For an alternative however, the same piping that feeds the reservoir could also be partially diverted and filtered for drinking water. Coming directly out of the mountain spring directly adjacent to the property the quality of the water is as pure and healthy as you can get naturally.
Not to be overlooked is the beautiful yet charming 968 square feet (90-m2) log cabin made of Pine harvested from the property and surrounding area. This Log cabin was designed and built by an aficionado that lived in Canada many years and it emphasizes quality as much as aesthetic appeal and comfort. The little cottage comes complete with a second floor loft that could easily be an additional bedroom, a wood burning stove for heating, and a small porch overlook the valley below.
At $158,000 this farm is a tremendous value. Due to the distance to the property we ask for serious inquiries only. Call today to schedule a visit to this little slice of rural Ecuadorian paradise.
