This beautiful, brand new, fully furnished Cuenca artist’s retreat in the heart of El Centro was designed by of one of Ecuador’s most prominent artists and is stunning in its creation and amenities.  The never-before-lived-in, one bedroom, one bath designer suite is located on the ground floor of downtown Cuenca’s newest prestige building, El Cirpes.

This is the perfect Airbnb rental investment property right in the heart of the popular colonial area of Cuenca and is also an ideal live-in condo for a single person or couple wanting a self-contained modern safe haven.

The building is in a prime location, situated on Calle Larga, one of Cuenca’s best streets for restaurants, galleries, museums, and shopping.  But don’t let the hustle and bustle fool you. This building was conceived as a quiet sanctuary with plantings, a bicycle storage area, an indoor common garden, and a secondary entrance that leads you directly to the Tomebamba River and its walking path.

The suite itself has an open concept living and dining area, a kitchen with antique white cabinets and white subway tile, and a small dining table for four. The comfortable living room is well appointed with a sofa, coffee table, flatscreen television and gorgeous artwork.

A private patio with designer table and chairs is located right off the living room and serves as the formal entrance to this unique condo, that comes with its own private security entrance.

Tucked into a small alcove off the living room is the queen-size bedroom and bath, with a surprising amount of storage and closet space for a studio-type apartment.. Located off the kitchen you’ll also find a laundry and storage room, with a washer dryer combination that’s included in the purchase price.

Perfectly appointed with everything you need to move right in, this small suite boasts top of the line furnishings, one-of-a-kind artwork, and turnkey ready ease. All furnishings, appliances — including an induction stovetop, an oven, refrigerator & dishwasher — plus patio furniture and artwork are included in the asking price of $115,000. Dishware, glasses, small appliances, bedding, and linens are also included.  This is a pet-friendly building.
