Stunning Ecuador Community

Here is one of the most stunning communities … not just in Ecuador… but anywhere in the world and at prices most can afford… less than $91,105.


For those who want country living near a major city Pakakuna Gardens may be one of best places there is to retire.


If you are looking to live paradise, near a big city but amidst acres of private gardens then you should investigate Pakakuna Gardens on the outskirts of Quito Ecuador near the new airport.


This is as close  as it gets to heaven on earth!


Pakakuna Gardens sit in nearly 75 acres of garden protected on 3 sides by deep canyons that offer stunning views.


Life here is the best of country living yet Quito is less than an hour’s drive and going to the new Quito International Airport takes only 20 minutes.

Claus Egger a Swiss national, moved to this 74 + acres  28 years ago and decided to spend his days creating a paradise.  Now, at age 73, he has created a foundation to share this special landscape with 187 other families.

When Egger first moved to Ecuador, he asked an architect student in his final year of studies to build the first house in Pakakuna. This student was Patricio Falconi, the renown Ecuadorian architect.


Patricio Falconi and his son Pedro… both architects.







result!  Monet would have loved to paint this!

When Claus decided to share this paradise, he turned to his old friend Falconi.  Since Patrico had built his dream house would he draw plans and be the builder responsible for overseeing the project?

This is history and Pakauna is now well under way with six houses in various stages of construction.


They are also building a new house for Claus as he transformed the original structure into the community Clubhouse so new buyers would be able to see and use the clubhouse immediately.

In the US, even with the recession prices for a community of this nature would be beyond reach of most.

Yet Pakakuna houses cost as little as $137 a square foot including land!  The price is $87 a square foot for construction and $50 per square foot for  land, amenities and gardens.

As you would expect in a commuity of the highest degree, each house in Pakukuna differs.  Patricio Falconi has many designs available ranging from a 700 square foot one bedroom home  at $95,900 to three bedroom houses with 1500 square feet. In a moment you’ll see how to gain a $4,795 discount on the 700 square foot model.

This is an opportunity to enjoy the really finest lifestyle at a price one can easily afford.  Less than $96,000 but Falconi’s quality…


of construction and…


style is…



Homeowner fees are attainable as well. Monthly fees are only $300 to support the entire 45 acres that are included in the project. The construction time to build a house is 10 months.
