Unique San Ignacio Property for Sale


We have recently listed our property El Atajo for sale. It is a titled property (not a fidecomiso), owned under a Mexican corporation. We would consider selling the corporation with the property if the buyer is interested. We have owned the property for about five years, in which time we have extensively cleaned up the property, and added some basic infrastructure. We had some grand plans for this place, but as we all know, sometimes life gets in the way, and dreams remain unrealized. There is incredible potential here for a number of commercial ventures, a farm or nursery, or just a very tranquil residential property in one of the most beautiful and unchanged Baja pueblos. The last time this property had changed ownership prior to our purchase was in 1847.

El Atajo is a unique and historic property of approx. 9 acres (3.87 hectares), including 900 meters along the presa. There is a single access road in, and the property is bounded by the San Ignacio presa to the north, and the bluffs of the mesa to the south. Facilities and infrastructure include: 110V electricity, water pump and pressure tank, pila, two palapas with concrete/rock floors, outdoor/covered kitchen area, bathroom building with flush toilet/shower & sink, septic system, secure cave dug into mountainside, and a private beach with river access. There are hundreds of fan palms and fruiting date palms, as well as grapevines, sugarcane, mango, pomegranate, fig, guayaba, lime, olive, and banana trees. There are also two historical features on the property dating back to the Mission era (mid 1700's); a stone-lined water canal called an acequia, and a large sloped stone wall called a muralla which was built to protect the property from flooding.
Water is pumped from the water canal (acequia) to a number of faucets and hose bibs throughout the central part of the property. Where else in Baja do you have an unlimited water supply? There is a large outdoor covered kitchen area with Corian countertop, sink & faucet, concrete counter and storage shelves. There are locations for a refrigerator and large propane cookstove. There are two palapas -the main palapa is approx. 14x18, has concrete floor, overhead lights, electrical outlets, canvas walls (removable), and overhead counter-rotating ceiling fans. Lower palapa has concrete/rock floor, small circular countertop around center post, and hooks for a hammock. Access to river is from a path to a large cleared beach area, with lots of fan palms by the edge of river. Easy access for swimming and to launch and store kayaks and small boats.

See the listing here for photos & detailed info: http://www.misionloreto.com/gorgeous-improved-property-fruit...

The property is listed for sale for $200,000US, with Jill Jackson of Mision Loreto Properties in Loreto. If you are in the San Ignacio area, you can also contact Gary & Terry Marcer at Ignacio Springs B&B for more information. They will be showing the property to prospective buyers, as Jill is somewhat far away in Loreto.

Please contact me through U2U if you have specific questions. Gracias.

As I was perusing the advertisement the song, "If I Had a Million Dollars" by BNL came to my mind. I like rustico. It fits my style.

The canal feature, or acequia, really is amazing. It begins at the 'ojo de agua' to the east of our property, runs the the length of our property, then continues on for a few more kilometers around the mesa (and behind the La Pinta hotel), through Jaunita's Casa Lere garden, and fills the large octagonal pila behind Rene's Restaurant. From there it flows to all the small huertas behind the plaza area. Over two hundred years old and still flowing - no pumps, just gravity flow. We work with the few farmers left to keep it flowing and maintained. Makes a great habitat for frogs, tilapia and crawdads too.

WOW.....There are a few times I truly regret not being young again. This is one of them. What a life-project this could be.
Best of luck on a clean, quick sale.

Bump! Still looking for a buyer for this beautiful property. It was a busy and successful tourist season in San Ignacio this winter. I'd be willing to discuss partership or business propositions as well - there is great potential here, but we just have too much going on elsewhere to do it alone.

Bump again. The property survived a palm fire and Hurricane Odile flooding this year. Price and terms are negotiable - we just don't have the time to enjoy this magical place. Would also consider leasing the property to the right folks, for living on or for a commercial operation. U2U me more more info. Gracias.

We just went by your property yesterday and San Ignacio was having one of those PERFECT days. Breezy and cool with incredible blue skies.

New year, new price. The property is looking as beautiful as ever, but unfortunately life circumstances don't allow us to enjoy it. Willing to consider all reasonable offers. Not a fidecomiso, Mexican corporation available too. Gracias.

Bump.

The property is as beautiful as ever - and our partners are in San Ignacio for the winter, and can show to interested parties. We are motivated to sell! U2U me with any questions.
