This sensational 2,381 sq. ft penthouse boasts an additional 1,364 sq. ft. wrap around terrace, with a covered pergola, perfect for dining and entertaining, even in Cuenca’s cooler weather. This beautiful penthouse has 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and is reminiscent of a townhouse in the States, with open living space on the main floor and spacious bedroom suites on the second level.
Bright and airy, with windows in every direction, this penthouse features a lovely gas Chiminea fireplace with a remote control function in the living room, an outdoor firepit on the deck, granite countertops in the kitchen and travertine in the baths, heated floors in the bathrooms, high quality ceramic tiles, a surround sound system throughout the home, and many more amenities and upgrades too numerous to mention.
This modern 24/7 security building, is located in a popular upscale neighborhood in the coveted area of Cuenca known as Puertas del Sol and has an elevator, plus one parking spot and an oversized bodega.
You enter the penthouse through a welcoming vestibule. To the right of the hallway is an expansive living room that greets visitors thanks to the appeal of the fireplace and to the expanse of windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to the beautiful 300 sq. ft. covered pergola and outdoor living room. Plants abound making this a wonderful and charming place to linger with friends, read a book or just relax with a cup of morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The living room has built-in cabinets and a television that will stay with the condo.
The elegant separate dining room features remote control blinds and a designer chandelier that will also stay in the apartment (as will all lighting fixtures and window treatments) plus ample space for a dining table for eight and a sideboard. The open part of the terrace, which extends past the dining room, is accessed through a sliding glass door that takes you around the house to a second seating area with a firepit and a third part of the terrace where you’ll find a gas grill, all of which will stay.
The dining room opens into the kitchen that includes an adorable eat-in nook or seating area. Windows on two sides of the kitchen with spectacular views of the city and mountains surrounding the condo make cooking a pure delight. The kitchen has granite countertops, lots of storage — with organizers, pullouts, dividers and corner cabinets — plenty of workspaces and a pantry. All of the appliances come with the purchase price and include a 36″ gas oven, a 36″5 burner gas cooktop, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, a garbage disposal, microwave, and a wine cooler. A full-size washer and dryer, located upstairs off the Master Bedroom will also stay.
Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms. The Master is large enough for a king-size bed and a seating area. Built behind the bedroom, as part of the Master Suite, you’ll also find a perfect office-for-two space with built-in desk and bookshelves that will be included in the sale. The gorgeous Master Bath could be featured in any lifestyle magazine, with its stand-alone designer tub, walk-in shower, travertine tile, and a heated floor and towel rack.
The en-suite guest room also has a heated floor and towel rack in its bath and accommodates a queen size bed and nightstands, with plenty of room to spare. Both bedrooms have tons of storage and beautiful windows showcasing the mountain and city views of Cuenca.
