This spacious 3 bedroom, 4 ½ bath Cuenca penthouse is in one of the most beautiful, well-located neighborhoods, near the Stadium, shopping areas, and marvelous restaurants. The exceptional apartment also has 575 sq. feet of terraces.

Extensively remodeled, you enter the penthouse directly from the elevator that opens into an open concept, living/dining area. The dining room has a stunning commissioned wall mural created by famed Cuenca artist, Christian León. The living room also has a beautiful electric fireplace and adjoining covered outdoor terrace.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher and also has access to the terrace, with views of the New Cathedral. The refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range and microwave will stay with the condominium.

The grand, master bedroom has views of Turi to the south and the Cajas Mountains to the west, plus an unrivaled master bath with porcelain and mosaic tiles, a custom-built hydrotherapy tub, and an extra-large shower. Windows in the Master Bedroom and Bath are double-paned Termotec, for sound reduction.

The main floor also includes an office/study with a view of the New Cathedral, and a second bedroom, and a bonus TV room that includes an en-suite bath.  There is an additional social bath on the first floor.

The second floor is designed as separate living quarters or mother-in-law suite, perfect for guests or income-producing renters,. The upstairs suite has a large bedroom, bathroom, sitting area and second big kitchen which opens onto a glorious rooftop terrace, with spectacular views of downtown Cuenca and the beautiful Cajas Mountains. In addition to a gorgeous pergola, there is also an automatic watering system on the upstairs terrace, so plants can continue to be watered — even if owners are away!

This exceptional Cuenca penthouse also has garage parking for two cars and a large bodega. Small pets are allowed.

Built in 2005, the building consists of only 10 apartments, giving it a welcoming feel more like a private house than an apartment building.

The asking price is $335,000 including all of the 2nd floor and terrace furniture. Other furnishings negotiable.
