Otavalo & Cotacachi Properties

Cotacachi and Otavalo´s Top Properties and Real Estate Developments

Cotacachi and Otavalo are both small towns located about 2 hours north of Ecuador´s capital city, Quito. Cotacachi is nestled between two volcanoes. Situated in beautiful landscapes it is only a 30 minute drive from Lago San Pablo, Ecuador´s largest lake. The town is located adjacent to the Cayapas Ecological Reserve, with over 750,000 protected acres of forest. Cotacachi itself is home to numerous leather artisans, where you can find dozens of stores selling fine leather jackets, belts, shoes, and more along its main street 10 de Agosto. Since 2007, when International Living began promoting this village, a sizable expat community has begun to arrive, attracted to its beautiful Andean views and low cost of living.

Unlike Cotacachi, where the expat culture is well defined, Otavalo is home to a rich indigenous culture. With 90,000 inhabitants, it is much larger than its neighbor Cotacachi. On Saturdays, the massive market overflows from the Plaza de Ponchos and colorful textiles and crafts fill tents along streets in a third of the city. Otavaleños are famous for their weavings, everything from blankets and bags to sweaters and gloves. They are easily recognized by their traditional dress, white pants and dark ponchos for men, and brightly colored dresses for women.

While most residents or make the trip to Ibarra or Quito for all but the most common doctor´s visits, for many, the slow pace of life these two Andean towns offer has been just what the doctor ordered.

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.
