There is only 1 apartment left in the high-end downtown Cuenca new construction project, Casa del Huerto, being built by ISAM, Cuenca's premier downtown development company. The 1 one-bedroom unit is located on the second floor and is 66.44 sq. meters (715 sq. feet) with a 1.50 sq. meter storage bodega. The condo looks out onto the central courtyard in the building.
Casa del Huerto is a luxury residential project in historic El Centro that is being built by ISAM, Cuenca's premier downtown development company. What is exceptional about this modern downtown condo is that Casa del Huerto will have two elevators ... a rarity in El Centro.
The building is located in a patrimonial historic colonial building in the heart of Cuenca and will feature 18 modern, light, and airy one and two-bedroom apartments and two commercial spaces. Some of the condos will be located in the rehabilitated central portion of this historic house, while others will be in a contemporary wing to be built in the back of the building. Interior patios, including a traditional orchard (huerto), a large rooftop terrace with views of beautiful, downtown Cuenca (and even the iconic Blue Domes), and an urban garden, plus two elevators has made this one of the most sought-after buildings in Old Town. The one remaining unit is in the original historic part of the building.
The completion date for Casa del Huerto is scheduled for June 2022. If you’ve been keeping an eye on the revival and renaissance of real estate in downtown Cuenca, you’ve no doubt heard of ISAM. Founded in 2007, ISAM is one of the most highly respected development companies in Ecuador with a special reputation among Gringos and overseas clients due to their North American standard construction practices. The company's projects have been featured in prestigious design and architectural publications including The New York Times, Revista Habitar, Casas, Vistazo, Construcción & Diseño, ARQ. and the book 1000x Architecture of the Americas, among others.
ISAM has produced six residential buildings in El Centro since its inception, and recently received the prestigious Fray Jose Maria Vargas Architectural Award for excellence in architecture from the Cuenca Municipality for their last project, Casas del Ciprés. In 2019 Casas del Ciprés also won first prize for “Best Design” in Ecuador at the XXI Pan American Architecture Biennial in Quito and received the second prize in the International category. The new project, Casa del Huerto, will be located on Benigno Malo between Calle Larga and Juan Jaramillo in a prime downtown location near restaurants, cafes, museums, shops and just four blocks from the center of town and Parque Calderon.
The building is also only one block from the lovely Tomebamba River and its walking and bike paths, as well as to one of the bridges taking you into the new section of Cuenca.. It is also only 4 blocks from the heart of El Centro and Parque Calderon.
The developers have shared their desire to blend the old and the new seamlessly, providing an opportunity to live in one of Cuenca's beautiful colonial buildings, while having all the modern amenities including tons of natural light, double-paned windows where needed, high ceilings, modern lines, and special architectural details that will make this property shine.
Original flooring, beams, doors, tin ceilings, and tiles will be kept wherever possible in the colonial section of the building. There is currently a lack of quality innovative downtown buildings with modern touches and rarely an elevator building except in commercial buildings that have one or two condos and the rest of businesses, so these two remaining Casa del Huerto units are sure to go fast -- especially with ISAM's reputation and appeal.
