La Huerta: Infusing farming with home living
Do you want to live closer to nature? As health and wellness have become a priority amid the pandemic, a lot of homebuyers are seeking to live in larger open spaces which are closer to nature.
Some property seekers want to live in communities with farm lots, where they can grow their own fresh produce.
This is a trend that property developer Sta. Lucia Land Inc. has taken notice of as it answers both the residential and farming needs of homebuyers through its 50-hectare La Huerta Farm and Residences in the province of Laguna.
“We have seen a growing interest in our communities, specifically for our farm lots, given people’s belief that being close to nature and living sustainably can be beneficial to one’s health and well-being,” Sta. Lucia Land Inc. president Exequiel Robles said.
Robles emphasized that with all the safety protocols, social distancing, and other measures in place, people are encouraged to acquire spaces that would allow them to live, work, and play comfortably while enjoying nature’s bounty.
“And this is a growing need that we at Sta. Lucia Land are looking to meet and satisfy,” Robles said,
“Through our farm lot developments like La Huerta in Calamba, Laguna, we hope to give homebuyers that unique opportunity to try their hand at growing their own produce. Over the past year, we have seen how the pandemic encouraged many to turn to backyard or urban farming to ensure that there’s always a steady supply of fresh produce on their table,” he added.
La Huerta will allow future owners to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle in one’s own farm estate and the healing power of nature—away from the fast life in the metro.
It also offers scenic views of Mt. Makiling and Tagaytay, the historical Laguna Lake, and the verdant fields of Canlubang.
“Now is truly the best time to invest in your own farm lot. Through La Huerta, we hope to provide families and individuals the opportunity to find the concept of farming as more than just a weekend activity but rather as a way of life and an integral part of the whole family’s quest for a healthier lifestyle,” Robles added.
