Luxury Property with 2 Stunning Houses, Pereira, Colombia
With its stunning coastlines, amazon jungle and breath-taking Andean mountain ranges, Colombia really does highlight all that is great about South America. On offer here is a chance to invest into this mesmerising part of the world with this fantastic property featuring two beautiful houses.
Located in the city of Pereira, widely regarded as the commercial capital of Colombia, this unique property features two houses and is set on a 23,000m2 private plot of lush green land. The first house has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen and living room. The second house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen, living room. Jacuzzi, swimming pool, sauna, pavilion, bar and a sports court are included also. The property has full electrical and water supply but, as it is quite common in this rural area, no gas lead and the kitchen gas is provided by gas bottles which is also very common even for properties of this size.
This property not only offers buyers a spacious and comfortable place to live but also the chance to invest in the fast-growing Colombian holiday rental market. The emergence of direct rental websites such as Airbnb and booking.com has seen the potential for holiday rentals in South America soar over the past decade. Pereira is not only a beautiful area itself but is also a great place from which to discover the many other fascinating and unique areas and cultures of this country including nearby Cali, Medellin and the iconic capital, Bogota. For those wishing to venture a little further, Pereira is also a great base to explore other parts of South and Central America such as nearby Ecuador, Panama, Mexico, Venezuela and Brazil.
Sports and leisure fans will feel right at home here, thanks to the property’s proximity to countless areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Parque Ucumari and Santuario Otun Quimbaya, a pair of top nature reserves, and the relaxing thermal springs of Santa Rosa and San Vicente. This of course means that Pereira it is surrounded by a vast array of glorious walking, biking, water sports and fishing areas. Golf fans will not be disappointed either as there are many excellent courses nearby including Campo de Golf Santa Barbara and Club Campestre.
No conversation on South American culture would be complete without referring to football, and fans of the game will be delighted to note that this area is yet another hotbed for the sport with the home stadium of Deportivo Pereira, who play in Colombia’s top division, just 20 minutes away.
The area is also very well-connected transport wise on the ground and in the air with Aeropuerto internacional Matecana just a few miles away. This is of course yet another huge plus point in the context of the holiday rental/residential/commuter markets.
ABOUT THE AREA
Soaring Andean summits, unspoiled Caribbean coast, enigmatic Amazon jungle, cryptic archaeological ruins and cobbled colonial communities. Colombia boasts all of South America’s allure, and more.
Colombia’s equatorial position affords it a diversity of landscapes matched by few countries. A slight tinkering in altitude takes you from sun-toasted Caribbean sands to coffee-strewn, emerald-green hilltops in the Zona Cafetera. Continue to climb and there’s Bogota, the bustling cradle of Colombia and third-highest capital city in the world. Throw in another few thousand meters and you’ll find snowcapped peaks, high-altitude lakes and the eerie, unique vegetation of the paramo (high-mountain plains). The bottom drops out as the Andes give way to Los Llanos, a 550,000-sq-km swath of tropical grasslands shared with Venezuela, often called the Serengeti of South America.
Colombia’s varied terrain is fertile ground for outdoor adventurers to dive, climb, raft, trek and soar. San Gil is the undisputed adventure capital, but Colombia boasts alfresco pleasures in all corners. Some of the continent’s most iconic trekking is here and is dramatically varied: Ciudad Perdida is a multiday jungle walk to the ancient ruins of the Tayrona civilization, while numerous ascents inside Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy place intrepid hikers among the highest reaches of the Andes. Providencia’s world-class reef spells aquatic heaven for scuba divers, and whale-watchers on the Pacific coast can see majestic humpbacks in the wild.
A wealth of ancient civilizations left behind a fascinating spread of archaeological and cultural sites throughout Colombia. The one-time Tayrona capital, Ciudad Perdida, built between the 11th and 14th centuries, is one of the continent’s most mysterious ancient cities, arguably second only to Machu Picchu. Even more shrouded in mystery is San Agustin, where more than 500 life-sized ancient sculpted statues – some 5000 years old and of enigmatic origin – dot the surrounding countryside. And then there’s Tierradentro, where elaborate underground tombs scooped out by an unknown people add even more mystique to Colombia’s past.
Hardworking Pereira is not your typical tourist destination. Visitors often come to Pereira for one thing – to do business. Founded in 1863, Pereira is the capital of Risaralda and the economic powerhouse of the Zona Cafetera – a hot commercial centre most noted for its throbbing nightlife. if you want to experience a fast-paced yet friendly Colombian city away from the gringo trail and with a good dining scene, it certainly fits the bill. Pereira is also the gateway to Parque Ucumari and Santuario Otun Quimbaya, a pair of top nature reserves, and the relaxing thermal springs of Santa Rosa and San Vicente.
