HISTORIC HOME WITH INCREDIBLE VIEWS
In the morning drink your coffee on the wrap-around porch while you watch the sun rise. In the evening sip a glass of wine on your front patio, a bluff rising above the Pacific Ocean with expansive sunset views. During the day, grab a bite to eat at the local restaurant, catch up on gossip at the grocery store or walk along the pristine beach.
Enjoy small town life with a South American flavor in Ancon. Formerly a key location in the coastal petroleum industry, it has retained its small town atmosphere. The local grocery store, bakeries and pharmacy stock all the essentials. From the historic beachfront homes you can easily walk to these businesses. The entertainment in Salinas, shopping in commercial La Libertad and the provincial capital of Santa Elena are all with 15 minutes driving distance of Ancon.
Currently available is an historic ocean front home that is not only unique in terms of architecture, but also in location, on one of the best lots in the town. The house is about 3000 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, a den, kitchen, formal dining room, living room, breakfast room and wrap around porch.
The style of the wooden home dates back many decades, when Ancon was home to the Englishmen who came to work in the petroleum industry. These historic homes then passed into the hands of Ecuadorians. Like the one currently available for sale, they feature hard wood floors, glass pane windows, high ceilings and large porches.
Several of these historic homes have been completely restored. There have been recent sales to North Americans and Ecuadorians, who are looking for a safe and peaceful vacation and retirement destination.
The house pictured here is a great investment opportunity, either as a single family home or to turn in to a small bed & breakfast.
The majority of the interior is in great condition. The exterior needs a paint job and some new landscaping, but with the low cost of labor in Ecuador, the relatively minor expense involved is almost always offset by the increase in property value.
The approximately 20,000 square foot lot is an attraction in itself. It sits on a bluff, with expansive Pacific ocean views. The lot also includes the hillside sloping down to the beach, which provides direct access from the property to the sand.
The list price of $170,000 includes furnishings and of course some of the best views along the southern coast of Ecuador. For more information about this property and other homes in Ancon.
