This exceptional fully-furnished, turnkey Cuenca Condo near San Sebas Park is an art-lovers dream and an incredible steal at just $169,500. The move-in ready three bedroom, 2.5 bath house is 1,300 square feet and feels more like a home than a condo. Filled to the brim with gorgeous one-of-a-kind pieces, plush furniture, high-end electronics, custom-built-ins, kitchen appliances, and tons of storage, this unusual find also has a spacious 1-car interior garage.

Ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac favored by well-to-do Cuencano’s, the condo is just blocks from one of Cuenca’s favorite parks with outdoor cafes and restaurants, a beautiful fountain and walking paths, and the Museum of Modern Art. This furnished gem is also within easy walking distance to Cuenca’s town center, the Tomebamba River, the best of Cuenca shopping and dining, major hospitals, and Supermaxi, the city’s largest grocery store.

The original home, built around 60 years ago, was completely gutted and updated five years ago and built to North American standards by its US builder. Original wood floors and wooden doors and staircases in parts of the home, antique light fixtures and gorgeous chandeliers, built-in cabinetry, and architectural details remind you of Cuenca’s flourishing past while providing modern conveniences and comfort.

As you enter the 2md floor home, up a beautiful wooden staircase, you are immediately struck by a huge, hand-painted mural depicting life in Cuenca. The inviting hallway leads to the home’s master bedroom and a downstairs office on one side, with the guest room and open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area on the other.

The master bedroom is light and airy and includes a lovely sitting area and a small outdoor terrace. The master is en-suite and the large bathroom features a beautiful jacuzzi bathtub (with a crystal chandelier on dimmer lights overhead adding to the romance), a good-sized shower with a skylight, and double sinks with lots of cabinetry and storage.

The second bedroom, located down a small set of wooden stairs,  is currently being used as an office. All of the office furniture, built-in storage, under cabinet lighting, and a couch that turns into a trundle bed for guests, are all included in the purchase price. The guest room has a queen-size bed with side tables, and lots of closet space and shares the social bath next door.

The open-concept living area includes a living room with comfy couches, a coffee table, an entertainment center with a large TV, side tables, a parson’s table, decorative niches and shelving, and a plush rug that are all included in the sales price,

The large kitchen features three skylights and has granite countertops and new appliances including a refrigerator, stove, oven, extraction hood, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and a washer and dryer that are all included. Overflowing cabinet and storage space means there’s a place for everything — even a great built-in wine rack. An oversized granite island separates the kitchen from the dining room that includes a beautiful wooden table and chairs for six, a sideboard, and tons of ornamental accessories.

A large one-car garage is located on the first floor and includes a half-bath. This area could also be used for storage or be converted into a 4th bedroom, a den, an additional office, or a poker room and “man cave.”
