Located in the beautiful central Mexican state of Michoacan, 5 miles outside of colonial (1519) St Clara del Cobre , the copper town. At 8,000 feet elevation property is surrounded by avocado orchards, mountains, and clean spring fed lakes. This "troje" home is an empty log cabin like shell, ready for interior walls & stairs to become a 2 bedroom house. Troje homes are unique to the local Purepecha Indians and are read more made of heavy, hand-hewn, thick pine beams. Traditionally, no metal elements, such as nails or screws, were used. Even the tejamanil (flat pine boards/shingles) ceiling was attached with the thorns from the Tejocote Tree. It has a dug well, large underground cistern for fresh water, a septic tank with leach lines and electric available. This property is surrounded by and once was part of an adjacent 10 acre ranch, barn and 4 horse stables with a large beautiful American style home, which I also have listed for sale for $310,000. So, for $327,000 you could buy both!
