This gorgeous 4,220 square foot Yunguilla country estate is situated on 8.4 acres of land (34000 sq. meters) of land with thousands of species of exotic plants, flowers and trees, orchards and views as far as the eye can see. This 4 bedroom, 7 bath adobe home has a gorgeous 5 X 10 meters swimming pool (1.5 meters deep) and hot tub, two relaxing and inviting patios, a reservoir, a beautifully landscaped park, and lovely manicured walking trails with benches along the way to take in nature at its best. Among the goodies available on the property are avocados, oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, coffee, bananas, papayas, macadamia nuts, and cotton. There is a secondary first-floor patio for lounging and entertaining above the pool and a second-floor enclosed terrace with spectacular views, perfect for that afternoon nap or reading. The home’s well-equipped cook’s kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, 2 ranges, an oven, a separate heating oven, range hood, a microwave, a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a large 2-door refrigerator with lower a pullout freezer. All the wooden cabinets include extra storage and ease of use with Lazy Susan turntables, quality rollers in the cabinets and under cabinet lighting. A huge pantry is located off the kitchen and a room that can hold a year’s supply of food also provides ample storage space for buyers who want to live a self-sustaining, off-the-grid type of lifestyle. There is also a washer and dryer that come with the purchase price. Some furnishings may be negotiable. The great room features a large dining room and intimate living spaces separated by a grand entrance hallway and unique handcrafted tile stairs leading up to the home’s four bedrooms. A patio, off the living area, overlooks the pool and hot tub with magnificent mountain views in a quiet, flower-filled setting, providing the perfect place for enjoying a meal of fresh vegetables and fruits from your garden. The four bedrooms upstairs are all en-suite and fan off of the landing’s library and TV area. Each of the bedrooms is equipped with lots of closet and storage space. Also on this property is a 600 square foot workshop with an 80 sq. ft. storage loft.

On this land is a beautifully landscaped park and several separate and defined flower gardens. Throughout this parcel are plant-filled walking trails with benches, rock sculptures, and unique foliage.

The cistern is located beneath the floor of the carport. In addition, there are two hot water heaters in the pump room.

There is an emergency gasoline-powered generator and there are switches to safely accommodate the transfer of power to both the main house and the casita. The generator is 5.5kw and will run both houses but not the pool pumps or the irrigation pump. There is also a dedicated 15KVA transformer, a security system, and overhead and drip irrigation in select areas. On the outside of the pump room is a cement box that can hold up to six propane tanks. Gas is $2 a bottle. It has a manifold, pressure regulator and a gauge to show how much pressure the system has. There is also a possibility of buying raw land and a casita that is attached to this property, offering a 15-acre estate.

The building also has an attached tool/storage area and an outside shower. A 179 square ft. laundry facility with ample covered drying space also serves as an irrigation and potable water storage area.

The land where the house sits is on the highest part and has big rock features. The property immediately surrounding the house is flat with lots of mature citrus trees. There is a fairly steep drop down to the level of the hammock area where the large cement tank resides, providing an additional permaculture feature with lots of space to grow more fruits and trees. This slope has a mix of existing mature trees such as avocado, guava, zapote, orange, papaya and banana. The terrain then gradually slopes to the lowest part of the property where it flattens out and leads into a small coffee plantation (about 1’200 plants), with organically and shade grown coffee that will please any coffee connoisseur. The plantation will let you try your hand at a new hobby or further pursue the coffee growing end of this property.
