This 3,444 sq. ft. Cuenca home on 0.158 acres of land has old-world charm and character with the allure of an old Ecuadorian hacienda.
Located on Paseo 3 de Noviembre, on the Tomebamba River, this 5-bedroom, 5-bath home has an inside courtyard, vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, a beautiful carved wooden door, two outdoor patio and seating areas -- one with hand-crafted field stone archways -- and a winding and colorful path overflowing with flowers, trees and shrubbery.
Inside this palatial home is a central courtyard and atrium with a fountain and tons of plants, and high angular ceilings reflecting the lovely upstairs hallways leading to the sleeping quarters. Wooden railings, a winding staircase, brick columns, and wrought iron details add to the feel of this one-of-a-kind home ... but the land value is even more impressive.
The downstairs includes a living room, with a stone working fireplace, a large and lovely dining room with very high ceilings throughout. The kitchen is full-sized, with lots of storage and counter space. There is also an office library with tons of built-ins and bookshelves, arched windows, and a lovely view.
The master bedroom is en-suite and is also roomy, with plenty of storage space in the carved wooden closets and drawers.
The property is located near the tram system, and just a 20 minute walk to the historic part of the World Heritage city of Cuenca.
The listing price for this unusual 3,444 sq. ft Cuenca home and expansive land for a city dwelling is $485,000. Appliances are not included. Select furnishings are negotiable and built-ins will stay.
