Economic conditions make it hard to earn safe income from savings now. Those on pensions and fixed income are squeezed. Everyone has increased risk. One way to resolve this problem is to live where costs are lower.
Ecuador is a safe country where prices are still low. You can own a nice home for $49,000 or go first class and live in paradise for less than $100,000. $91,105 to be exact.
For those who want country living near a major city Pakakuna Gardens may be one of best places there is to retire.
If you are looking to live paradise, near a big city but amidst acres of private gardens then you should investigate Pakakuna Gardens on the outskirts of Quito, Ecuador.
This is as close as it gets to heaven on earth!
Pakakuna Gardens sits in nearly 75 acres of garden protected on 3 sides by deep canyons that offer stunning views.
Life here is the best of country living yet Quito is less than an hour’s drive and going to the new Quito International Airport takes only 20 minutes.
Claus Egger a Swiss national, moved to this this 74 + acres 28 years ago and decided to spend his days creating a paradise. Now, at age 73, he has created a foundation to share this special landscape with 187 other families.
When Egger first moved to Ecuador, he asked an architect student in his final year of studies to build the first house in Pakakuna. This student was Patricio Falconi, who became one the top five architects in Ecuador.
When Claus decided to share this paradise, he turned to his old friend, Falconi. Since Patrico had built his dream house would he draw plans and be the builder responsible for overseeing the project.
This is history and Pakauna is now well under way with six houses in various stages of construction.
Claus is also building a new house for Claus as he transformed the original structure into the community Clubhouse so new buyers would be able to see and use the clubhouse immediately.
In the US, even with the recession prices for a community of this nature would be beyond reach!
Yet Pakakuna houses cost as little as $137 a square foot including land! The price is $87 a square foot for construction and $50 per square foot for land, amenities and gardens.
As you would expect in a commuity of the highest degree, each house in Pakukuna differs. Patricio Falconi has many designs available ranging from a 700 square foot one bedroom home at $95,900 to three bedroom houses with 1500 square feet. In a moment you’ll see how to gain a $4,795 discount on the 700 square foot model.
This is an opportunity to enjoy the really finest lifestyle at a price one can easily afford. Less than $96,000 but Falconi’s quality…
