FULL DESCRIPTION:

This is a one of a kind, custom made, and extraordinary earthen home blending modern accents with local traditional construction. There is no other house quite like this one in all of Ecuador; its a showcase and has been featured here locally in architectural networks. This 3 bedroom 2 bath home is made of bahareque which is a traditional Ecuadorian style construction made of earth with a wooden framework. Every detail has been thought out & tastefully created, down to even a built-in dish drying rack disguised as a cupboard over the sink and a gorgeous ceramic mandala in the center of the guest room floor. The kitchen has a large pantry and two sinks- one bar sink and one deep sink with two sections. All of the countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms are granite with speckled quartz. The house feels so warm and inviting with wooden floors in the bedrooms, high ceilings made of pine & accented with wooden cross beams. Many walls have rounded corners, and the entire space is adorned by beautiful candescent lights many in gorgeous asian style chandeliers. Even the steel protection on the windows was custom made and symmetrical to fit each opening. The doors to the outside are also made of steel.

While all of the structures are one floor buildings, the foundation of the main house was built to hold 2-3 stories at the owners request ensuring 100% structural strength in case of any further earthquakes. Apart from the foundation, all of the materials were locally sourced; the entire framing of the house is made of pine wood, and the walls are hand made with earth and a mix of 7% of cement. This is beyond just a grounded home as the owner intensely studied about dirty electricity- bio hacking and how to build the structures according to “Building Biology Standards” with zero toxic pollution from electromagnetic radiation. There was 5 times more electrical cable used to wire the main house correctly as to avoid encasement of dirty electrical. All of the electrical wiring is intelligently designed as all wires are isolated and harmless. 

The property measures 3,000m2 / .74 acres and is entirely fenced, sprinklers are installed, and the property is currently being landscaped with lawn, flowers, and bushes. It has been a difficult decision for these owners to sell and move as they have truly created their dream home, however, they are being called to move to another part of the world now. They request that the new owner adopt their older black lab and three mature cats that will not be able to make it on their journey across the Pacific. Cat doors have been placed in the perfect places for their ease of entry & exit, and the entire property is contained ie the dog cannot get out, nor does he try to.

This property is located in the phase two development of the exclusive gated community of San Joaquin. This property shares the entrance gate of San Joaquin where a 24 hour guard checks in guests and owners. The owners of these Sunrise Properties pay $25 a month for maintenance and water. The potable water for this property is sourced from a well and then stored in a 10,000 liter water tank above the sunrise properties. The water is then dispersed – dropped by gravity (no pumps from the upper tank) feeding potable water to the properties below. There is an additional water source available as well through the local water group- please ask Tara at Tierras Realty for more information about this additional connection. 

*There are 2 2500 liter water storage tanks with a quality italian pump. 

*Electric is hooked up to a 25 kilowatt an hour transformer.

*There is a security system with a screen and control panel inside- in the master bedroom. There is also a breaker box near to the master bedroom allowing one to turn off all electricity at night & easily if desired. The entire house is wired for ethernet cable hook up.
