Manager info

Year Purchased: 1975

About: I grew up in Quito, but left Ecuador when I was a teenager. My studies took me to Germany, Kansas and California. The last fifteen years I made Texas my home, and the property in the pictures will most likely be the home for my retirement years.

Why Quito, Ecuador:
This property was passed down to us as part of our parent's inheritance. The property was initially bought by them in the late seventies, when the valley was still a rural area. In the last forty five years Quito has grown, and the property that once served as a weekend home, has evolved into a great place to host family friends and guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
All the wood works are custom made, which gives the place a unique touch! The balcony in the back of the house faces north, looking over where the equator line divides the globe into two hemispheres. I truly enjoyed the view from the kitchen bay window with the Casitagua in the horizon during the sunset. It is a property that enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment with a World Heritage city a few miles away.
