Cotacachi, Cotacachi, Imbabura, Ecuador
Tucked away behind an unsuspecting private wall you will encounter this amazing multi-functional property located within a few blocks of the main square and open-air mercado (market). From inside this property you will feel like you are in your own world yet easy walking access to the amenities that the beautiful town of Cotacachi has to offer. Entering onto the premises you see a large driveway designed with pavers which can easily accommodate 4 vehicles. Hand-made paver-designed walkways lead you throughout the property where you will encounter the main residence plus 2 separate guest residences, an enormous workshop/storage outbuilding which could easily be converted to an additional guest residence, and a greenhouse for on-site cultivating and upkeep of multiple mature fruit trees including lemon (2 seedless trees, 4 with seeds), extensive amount of blackberry bushes brought in from the US, avocado (10 total which include 3 different varieties), 4 mandarin trees, & 3 chirimoyas. The property boasts extremely well-manicured lawn and each of the outbuildings have been designed and built by the current owner (a retired US builder) using choice local materials for the area and US-standard construction guidelines. Each of the guest houses has one bedroom and one full bathroom. The larger guest home has the living/dining/kitchen area separated from the bedroom whereas the smaller guest home is a junior-suite style. The main residence has a wrap-around covered porch area with an outdoor imported infra-red sauna. You enter through a grand front entrance into an expansive open floor plan with tall ceilings throughout. From the minute you walk in, you cannot help but be in awe of the gorgeous imported Italian porcelain floors throughout the entire main residence. The large living and dining areas are straight ahead from the entrance and are separated by a beautifully sculpted fireplace which is the focal point of this space. And for those of you who like to cook and entertain at the same time, the large American-stlye kitchen with beautiful granite countertops is located off to the side with mountain views from the double sink. On either side of the great room are the bedrooms. The master is an enormous suite with sliding glass door exit to the outdoor sauna. The master bathroom has a shower as well as soaking tub, with separate walk-in closet. On the other side of the kitchen is the second bedroom, albeit small but quite functional. There is a full bathroom and large space currently being used as a home-gym. This property is being sold with just about everything making an easy transition for you!!
