This fully-furnished riverfront country home in El Descanso is 10 minutes from Cuenca and is ideally situated between the Autopista and the Panamerican Highway … and Cuenca and Azogues. The 2-bedroom, 3 bath home features a large, beautifully manicured front lawn, an outdoor kitchen and patio area, river irrigation for the plants and flowers, a loft-style master suite with seating area, a kitchen, separate dining room, and a charming living room with a fieldstone fireplace.

Completely renovated 2 years ago, this 24 x 8 meter home is located on 1100 meters of land and is directly across the country road from the Burgay River. The owners use the river for irrigation of their land via a pump system they have installed. The riverfront also provides a lovely walking area.

The house has an outdoor kitchen space, a large storage room, tons of additional storage inside the home, and an outdoor bathroom located near the stone patio area. There is plenty of room for a pool, should the new owners want one, and the mild climate (warmer than Cuenca) makes this a great option.

There is a good-sized kitchen, with wooden cabinets and lots of storage. The kitchen comes with appliances including a stove, refrigerator, oven, and microwave, all included in the purchase price. The washer is located in the outdoor storage room, that also houses the outdoor bathroom.

One of the two large bedrooms is located on the first floor, with its bathroom located across the hall. This bathroom is also used as a social/guest bath. An ornate wrought-iron railing and staircase lead to the second story Master Suite which includes a beautiful, decorative round window, a full bath, two seating nooks, a desk area and wonderful, angled ceilings.

The recent renovation included installing sturdy, sliding glass window with screens — a rarity in Ecuador — allowing for warm breezes to flow all-year-round. A brand new roof was also part of this renovation.

In addition, the home comes with a new 240V electrical panel and alarm system.  The property is surrounded by a security gate, with an automatic gate opener, an intercom system and floodlights.

5 minutes from Mall del Sur — where you can buy your groceries and other supplies — this country gem is also just 7 minutes from the largest and most modern hospital in Cuenca, Hospital del Rio.

Priced to sell, the asking price for this fully-furnished, 2-bedroom, newly renovated riverfront home in El Descanso is $165,000.
