Cotacachi   Colonial Street

Enclosed By Nature

The population in this town is of about 8,000, different from the 2-hour away city of Quito. Catachachi settles in the middle of two volcanoes. Surrounded by beautiful landscape it is a short drive of 30 minutes from Lago San Pablo, Ecuador’s largest lake. Travel to the Cayapas Ecological reserve, which has over 750,000 protected acres of forest, to see all forms of landscapes. Avenida 10 de Agosto is famous for its numerous leather artisans; there you can find dozens of stores selling fine leather jackets, belts, shoes, and more. The low cost living and the attractive Andean views are bringing more and more expats to this community.

Preserved & Vivid Traditions

Cotacachi is where the expat culture is well defined now a day, but Otavalo is home to a rich indigenous culture. Otavalo is much larger than Cotacachi with 90,000 inhabitants. On Saturdays, there is a large market that overflows from the Plaza de Ponchos; it fills the streets along in a third of the city with colorful textiles and crafts. The people from Otavalo are famous for their crafty weavings, everything from blankets, bags, sweaters, gloves, and more. One can recognize Otavaleños by their traditional dress, white pants, and dark ponchos for men, and bright color dresses for women.

Perfect Stress Reliever

Many go to Ibarra or Quito for their doctor’s visits, but for some the slow pace and Andean towns are perfect for reliving stress and getting away from the stress of the big city.

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 (lemon, blackberry, avocado, mandarin, & chirimoya). The property boasts extremely well-manicured lawn and each of the buildings 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!!
