The Owl’s Nest is a gorgeous, 3.2-hectare property with a hacienda and prime raw land that offer an exceptional Ecuador investment and development opportunity. The property is divided into three nearly equal parts, one of which houses a 170-year old, 6,000 square foot fully-restored hacienda.
This unique property in Chuquipata, Azogues, just inside the Canar province, is located 20 minutes from the center of the famed World Heritage site city of Cuenca, Ecuador and is less than 16 minutes away from a state of the art 24/7 Emergency Room at the newly-built Hospital del Rio.
The area attracts exclusive homes, sub-divisions and the prestigious UNAE – the Universidad Nacional de Educacion of Ecuador. The University is one of four national speciality universities training teachers, that the Ministry of Education says will transform Ecuador’s educational system.
Azogues and Cuenca officials also believe that this new University will have a major impact on the burgeoning local economy with an estimated 10,000 students attending once it's up and running, making the Owl's Nest an investor's dream.
The first level of the property is located on a quiet country road in front of the Hacienda that is currently designated for local traffic only. A bridge, that will make this road even more private, is planned as part of the University development, which will allow drivers to avoid passing through the campus. The bridge will also provide easy access to the main highway and the Autopista, which whisks you to Cuenca and other Ecuadorian cities.
This lower parcel is organic pastureland and is perfect for permaculture or animal grazing. For investors and developers, this portion of land could offer much-needed University housing, condos, a conference center or even an assisted living community for the seniors in the area.
The 5-bedroom, 6.5 bath Hacienda is located on the second level of the property. Accessed via a flower-lined 150-meter driveway, this century’s old home is perched on a glorious mountainside boasting quiet pastoral views of the surrounding valleys and local villages. It also has views of three sacred mountains and is said to radiate healing energy and positive Feng Shui (being between a river and a mountain) for those considering the location as a healing center or spa retreat. This could also easily be turned into an exclusive boutique hotel for the campus community and visitors. Currently, there are no hotels within a 10-mile radius of the University.
The third level of the property, with extraordinary vistas of the valley, is a dream for developers wishing to create high-end condominiums, a large private home or additional campus housing. A rugged driveway takes you up to this land, boasting unobstructed mountain and valley views.
Real estate values have risen dramatically in recent years in Azogues County. Comparable land in this valley is currently selling for between $100 - $150 per sq. meter, and is sure to increase in value due to the region’s new development, desirability and the draw of the University. Due to personal commitments taking the owner back to the States, there is a drastic price reduction on this valuable piece of land
The entire 3.2-hectare property with the Hacienda and raw land offers an exceptional Ecuador investment and development opportunity and is available for purchase at $2,225,000 million. All of the appliances, select furnishings, and the amenities currently found in the Hacienda are included in the purchase price.
By buying all three properties, developers have a unique chance to create a seamless high-end development project catering to this ever-expanding community, while reaping in the profits almost immediately with the Hacienda.
The three distinct areas --- lower pastureland, the Hacienda and its surrounding land, and the upper development property may also be available for sale separately.
