Thought readers might be interested in knowing one of the type of places available for sale in Colombia. This land would be considered a little finca. Basically a rural house with land.
Location: This expansive home of 680 square meters (7,319 sq ft) sits on 4,070 square meters of land (43,809 sq feet). It it North of Bogotá about 25 minutes between the towns of Chia and Cajica. Chia has been named the best place to live in the Department (equivalent to a State in the USA) of Cundinamarca.
Some of the best private schools are minutes away. A large medical facility can be reached in less than a quarter of an hour. A mall is just 10 minutes by car and one of the largest malls in Colombia is soon to open even closer.
Despite the proximity of city amenities the home is rurally located. There are plenty of open fields around where cows graze. Adding to the charm is it is on a stone street.
Features: Most obvious is there is a swimming pool where the living room should be. But in reality it is next to the living and dining room.
The garage is huge with enough room to make a large workshop.
A very large stone fountain and pond anchors one end of the house.
As with most places of this size there is a caretakers home located next to the large double door gate.
There are rooms galore both surrounding the pool and on the second floor overlooking the pool. Many are bedrooms with private baths. This would be a great place for a bed and breakfast or hostel.
The owner told us he is asking for 1,999 million pesos. In U.S. money that is about $725,000.
Contact: The owner has not listed the place with any real estate company. Probably the best way would be to drop us a line with your information and we will forward it to the owner.
