Bored with living in a box? Ready to try something different? Like a glass-fronted, architect designed Cuenca penthouse apartment with cathedral ceilings, a cozy loft over a bright and airy living room, generous terraces and balconies and sweeping views over the city and surrounding mountains?

This sophisticated light-filled condo has a European feel with an artful mix of colors, stone, glass and natural fibers making it warm and organic, but also modern and polished.

Located at the edge of Cuenca’s core, just above the expat apartment complexes, this spacious 3-bedroom plus loft and 3 full bath apartment commands the top floor of a well maintained 3-story condominium with only 7 privately owned apartments.

The penthouse features two large, partially enclosed tiled terraces and two balconies, affording 360° views in a quiet setting in a rapidly developing residential area. Just off the master bedroom, there is a private covered terrace, designed with sunbathing and morning coffee in mind.  The glass-enclosed terrace keeps you warm and toasty, away from the mountain breezes and is designed with ultraviolet glass, keeping the ill effects of the sun from you as you relax.

Away from the noise and bustle of the downtown core, the condo is within easy access to key facilities and amenities. A supermarket is within walking distance, as is the city’s largest public market. A bus stop is a block away, and the new soon-to-be-operational rapid transit system, the tranvia, is within easy access.

An exceptional opportunity either as a residence or an investment property and easily rented at a good return, this modern residence is a turnkey property in every sense of the word. It is fully equipped with high-end appliances, high-quality furniture, and accessories, including cookware, dishes, linen, with nothing to bring but a bag of groceries and personal belongings. The penthouse also comes with one-of-a-kind items such as a Moroccan hand-woven carpet and beautiful lighting fixtures including a colorful, opalescent glass and metal chandelier.

It comprises 140 sqm of living space and 81 sqm of partly custom-covered terrace area, for a grand total of 221 sqm. It has ample in-unit storage space and two locked and secure exterior parking spaces. The HOA is approximately $15 per month.

Best of all, it’s priced for quick sale at USD $169,500 cost recovery value.
