This exceptional 2-Bedroom Penthouse with a 635 sq. ft terrace and spectacular views is located in one of Cuenca's most upscale neighborhoods, Puertas del Sol, just one block from the Tomebamba River. This 1,658 square foot duplex penthouse is located in a luxury building favored by Ecuadorian professionals and expats, in a very safe neighborhood and just a 30-minute walk or a $2 cab ride to the historic downtown area of Cuenca. The apartment comes with 3 full bathrooms and a social (guest) bath, two parking spaces, and a bodega/storage unit. 

When you enter this glorious light and bright apartment you will be dazzled by the shiny Chanul (real hardwood) polished floors and plenty of natural light and design. A decorative wood and wrought iron staircase, beautiful chandeliers and lighting fixtures, and a working fireplace in the living room (fueled by propane) make this a very special apartment.

A spacious kitchen with new granite countertops, a GE oven and stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and Mabe refrigerator overlooks a beautiful terrace with views to the north, south, and east. Much of the terrace is enclosed in glass making it the perfect place to dine and relax, even in the rain. There is also a pass-through window from the kitchen to the covered terrace, making entertaining a breeze. The Mabe refrigerator and the GE oven and stove are included in the purchase price

The open-space lower level also features a beautiful living and dining room, a social bath, and a full bath. Additionally, the downstairs has a mudroom and a large laundry room.

Upstairs is the master bedroom with an en-suite, renovated bathroom complete with a shower and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom also has its own bathroom and even more closet space, plus a luxurious bathtub and shower combination. There is also a spacious lounge and reading room in between the bedrooms -- perfect for your morning coffee or an afternoon nap. This area could also be turned into a TV room or office.

The entire penthouse has a very light, open feeling and is ideal for a couple or a single person.

The HOA Condo Fee is just under $140 per month.  The building has 24-hour security, 2 friendly guards, and a total of 44 units. The condo is also close to Supermaxi Las Americas, which is Cuenca's largest grocery chain. Small pets are allowed. 

The asking price for this exceptional 2-Bedroom Penthouse with a 635 Sq. Ft terrace and spectacular views is $275,000 furnished or $255,000 unfurnished.
