Self-Sufficient Paradise

Post by rudder »


For sale by owner: 77 hectares in one of the world’s biologically diverse hotspots. 65 hectares of tropical forest with abundant water, including a waterfall, and a natural spring that supplies the property with plumbed water year-round. Aside from the pristine wilderness, the other 12 Hectares include beautiful bamboo buildings such as a 100 square meter main house, natural swimming pools, and a bamboo bungalow perfect for renting to tourists and other wildlife enthusiasts. The 12 hectares surrounding these buildings have been planted to an abundant, permaculture-style food forest with a diversity of fruit-bearing trees. The area also includes a heavily-terraced zone for tourism, and offers breathtaking views of the tropical valley below.

Due to its altitude, the property is situated in an ideal climatic sweetspot, with year-round daytime temperatures hovering around 80F and nighttime lows hovering around 60F. This offers the best of both worlds: the lushness of the jungle with the natural air-conditioning of the mountains.

The farm doubles both as an organic food-producing property as well as a source of construction material in the form of bamboo. The fruit trees have only recently begun to bear fruit in the past couple years, so many years of optimal production await. The extensive plantings of bamboo are sufficient to support a cottage industry for supplying a niche construction sector, which has experienced an explosion of interest in recent years.

Being located immediately next to one of Ecuador’s major transportation arteries, the E45 (a paved highway that rivals the Panamerican in national importance), facilitates the farm’s access to national as well as international markets. Furthermore, the property features its own well-maintained access road to connect the main buildings and productive areas of the farm to the E45 highway. Also, the farm and wilderness areas feature kilometers of trails for great hiking opportunities, offering this unique homestead excellent accessibility for both work and recreation.

This is the chance of a lifetime to dive into a developed permaculture farm in paradise.

There are many more features not mentioned here. For a comprehensive list of all the features of this property including information on the plantings please email me:

Total Price: $648K (A minimum of 20% must be paid with USD or other major currency, the rest may be paid with cryptocurrency)
