Grand Old Cotacachi Colonial for Sale
A rare opportunity is available in Cotacachi for the right person to own and restore or renovate an important
historical building. Located on the main square of the
town’s center, adjacent to the cathedral, is a valuable corner
lot and two-story building worth preserving.
According to local laws, the
façade of the building must be preserved because of its
historical significance. It is between 90-100 years old,
according to the owners, who grew up in the house.
Their family was sympathetic to liberal
politicians at the beginning of the last century and often hid them in a secret room at the top of the stairwell.
The walls and ceilings are intricately
decorated in patterned, hand-painted designs. The exterior eaves also
show exquisite attention to detail with a faux finish and patterning
that is still visible today.
Balconies are beautifully wrought in
metal and doors retain some of their original latches.
Half of the huge lot is an open
courtyard with a large tree, perfect
for a restaurant’s gracious outdoor dining area.
It’s complete with an adobe stove, or horno, for wood-fired
pizzas and homemade breads.
The interior of the building features a
large antique stone fountain and patio imbedded with cow bones in the
style of the period.
The large rooms upstairs would be
perfect for a B&B, for public offices or shops. Downstairs
rooms, too, would lend themselves to businesses such as a bookstore,
art gallery or other fine shop.
Because of roof/water damage, this
building will require renovation to preserve it’s second floor,
but the rewards of ownership and gratitude of future generations makes
it a project well worth considering.
Whether for business or philanthropic
use, this building is a part of Cotacachi’s past that needs to be
preserved. Contact Gary or Linda for further information about
preservation, renovation or new construction costs. Price
greatly reduced from $260,000 to $180,000.
Contact Gary Phillips, the listing
agent, or one of our other agents at www.Pro-Ecuador.com for more
information. We can arrange an appointment for a showing
of this property.
