Ringing in a new year, we can’t help but feel hopeful and optimistic for better days ahead.
The past year definitely had its fair share of turmoil and uncertainty. But the fact that we’re still here, alive and breathing, means that we have a chance at pursuing our dreams, making it up to ourselves and spending more time with the people who matter most.
Going for a fresh start usually involves living a healthier lifestyle and being more prudent financially. The past two years of living in a pandemic made us want to focus more on our well-being and rethink our priorities.
Many have long known the value of investing in real estate. After all, land, as experts would claim, can generate potentially lucrative returns. Others see investing in property as one way of continuing a legacy and building a strong foundation for a comfortable future.
The subsequent lockdowns and our vigilance from contracting COVID-19 caused us to take a long, hard look at our homes. As these began to serve multiple purposes—office, classroom, gym, studio—many began to feel the need for more space. Developments outside city centers such as farm lots became more appealing. Here, you get to enjoy fresh air as well as adequate spaces to nurture beautiful and bountiful gardens filled with blooms, herbs and different kinds of produce.
Indeed, having your own farm plot can offer a slew of benefits that many homeowners can only dream about. Here are some of the perks of farm life.
1.Space for wellness
Indeed, there’s something therapeutic about tending to a farm plot or a garden. Besides seeing lots of green, a color that generally relaxes one mentally and physically, you get to take a break from the frenzied urban lifestyle. At your farm or garden, you get your very own “agricultural gym,” where instead of lifting weights, you get to till the land and water the plants.
Such farm lots are readily available and are just an hour away from Manila, thanks to Sta. Lucia Land’s La Huerta Farms and Residences in Calamba, Laguna. Lot owners can expect to come home to adequate spaces at La Huerta, where they can ask for training and assistance from the property’s horticulturists. You can even enjoy calming views of Mount Makiling as you tend to your farm.
2. Sustainable lifestyle
Having your own farm lot does not only give you the satisfaction of harvesting what you’ve sowed, it also allows for a more sustainable lifestyle as you literally eat what you planted.
At La Huerta, practically everything can be done more sustainably, from vegetable sourcing to waste reduction and even recycling. Such a setting allows one to go back to basics and have the pleasure of enjoying everything from scratch.
3. Land value appreciation
Apart from the numerous benefits that can be had from owning a farm, remember that this is still a piece of valuable real estate which, when held over time, will see its price or value appreciate. And to guarantee this, make sure you pick a trusted brand such as Sta. Lucia Land which has been in the business of building and creating high quality projects for 50 years now. With this long-standing property developer, you are guaranteed to get value for your hard earned money.
La Huerta Farms and Residences is located in a highly accessible part of Calamba, itself a first-class city and the regional center of Calabarzon. The development is near industrial sites, community spaces and leisure sites. It is half an hour drive to Tagaytay and an even shorter one to the center of Calamba. Manila is easily an hour away.
One can indeed find that rare opportunity to “go back to basics” at La Huerta, which means “The Orchard,” as it will allow future owners to enjoy the numerous benefits of a healthy, sustainable lifestyle in one’s own farm estate.
At La Huerta, you get to build your dream home within serene surroundings, lush greenery and fresh air, no doubt the ideal home in a postpandemic future.
