This is a warm and inviting, beautifully appointed 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath Cuenca condo with a small terrace located just one-half block from the Yanuncay River, with its wonderful riverside walking paths, parks and exercise areas.

Located on the corner of the desired Primero de Mayo street, this light and airy, open concept condo features a spacious living room, a separate dining room, and a large, easy-to-work-in kitchen with an eat-in bar area and lovely wooden cabinetry. There is also a roomy, separate laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer that is included in the purchase price.

This ready to move in, turnkey apartment comes with all appliances including stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and a full-size washer and dryer. Dishes, glasses, linens, pots & pans, cutlery, and bedding are also included. The only furniture the new owners may want to buy is a couch for the living room. Beautiful coffered ceilings, window treatments, local artwork and a brand new paint job also help to make this exceptional condo shine.

The kitchen has tons of wooden cabinets and storage areas, as well as a pass-through granite counter and eat-in bar area with two bar stools that separate the kitchen from the dining room. The spacious, modern dining room includes a table and six chairs and a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door that leads out onto the small terrace, with spectacular views of the Yanuncay River, Turi, and Cuenca cityscapes.

Both bedrooms include contemporary queen size beds and bedside tables, plus Cuenca folk art and bedspreads. Ample storage and closet space is included thanks to wooden built-ins in both bedrooms. The large bathroom, with double sinks, separates the two bedrooms and is a shared space for these sleeping areas. There is also a social or guest bath off the living room.

This special apartment is located in the Glorietta Building, a building beloved by Gringos and Ecuadorians alike. It is a perfect move-in ready condo or a great investment rental depending on your needs.

On the property is a fully equipped mini-market that has everything you need, from fresh veggies and meat to wine and cleaning equipment — making it a wonderfully handy attribute of the building.  Downtown Cuenca is a 20-minute walk.

The elevator complex has a 24-hour/7-day a week guard service. The condo also comes with one parking space and a bodega/storage space.

The asking price for this gem is $149,000.
