2-Story Cuenca Penthouse With Views From 700 Sq. Ft Terrace




Cuenca, Ecuador





Listing No.


For those who want the feel of downtown, but away from the bus fumes, pollution, and big city-center noise, this 2,000 square foot, three bedroom, six bath Cuenca penthouse with views from a huge 700 square foot private terrace is waiting for you! 

The penthouse is located within a five minute cab ride (15 minute walk) to the historic district of Cuenca, and is just minutes away from the Las Americas Supermaxi grocery store and the celebrated home store, Su Casa. It is only a 10 minute walk to the city’s largest indigenous market, Feria Libre. Situated in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of small high-rises, and set away from the main road on a cul-de-sac, the condo building is quiet, yet is still only a half a block from the new Tranvia (Tram system,) affording quick transport in and around all of Cuenca. 

The open concept living room has two beautiful built-in travertine stone walls, tile flooring and wall-to-wall windows looking out on the gorgeous views. The oversized living/dining area provides plenty of options for re-configuring the space, depending on your personal needs.  A large entryway welcomes you into the living area. This unusual,  two-story penthouse boasts a gorgeous Master Suite, with hardwood floors, crown molding and lots of light. The Master also has a custom built desk and drawers galore.  A sliding glass door leads out onto the stunning 700 square foot terrace, with some of the best city views around. 

Whether it’s a private party for friends or a special event, this terrace has room to spare, and is the perfect place for entertaining, gardening or just enjoying life.  The terrace is surrounded by a secure stainless steel fence that the owner paid $5,000.  The fence is included in the purchase price. The large cook’s kitchen — separated from the living and dining room for convenience and privacy — has hardwood kitchen cabinets and plenty of storage and work surfaces.  A large refrigerator, stove, range hood, and full-size washer and dryer are included in the purchase price.  A big pantry and storage room are located right by the kitchen. On the main floor, you will find the guest room and guest bath, plus a second bedroom, a separate laundry room, and the maid’s quarters (currently being used as a sauna room — sauna not included in the sale price.)  This room could be used as a sauna or mediation room, a small office or for additional storage. 

There is also a study with a row of lovely windows, that comes with built-in bookshelves, a closet and custom drawers, affording the possibility of this being turned into a 4th bedroom.  The study’s bookshelves and a sold wood desk are included in the purchase price. There are six bathrooms in this penthouse. Four have showers and two have bathtubs.  A particularly large bathroom is currently being used for storage and to store bikes when not in use.  Located on a Small Cul-de-Sac, this Cuenca Apartment Building has 24 hour security and a guard service, plus an elevator for easy access to the condo.  It also has two back-to-back parking spaces and a large bodega (storage unit) located in the very secure basement. 

The asking price for this special, two-story penthouse is $315,000.  Select Furnishings are Negotiable and All Kitchen & Laundry Appliances are included.
