This 3-bedroom, 2 full bath luxury Cuenca condo is located in a prime location, just 5 minutes by taxi to Cuenca's historic downtown area. This partially-furnished 1,367 sq. ft. condo on the 6th floor of a seven-story, high-end building with 24/7 security, is located on a hill that overlooks part of the cityscape of Cuenca and the mountains that surround this UNESCO World Heritage Site city. From nearly every window in the condo, you can see breathtaking vistas of Turi, the Tomebamba River, the Old Cathedral with its famed Blue Domes, as well as the Andes mountains. Surrounded by great restaurants, stores, cafes, Cuenca's largest supermarket, Supermaxi, and just one block from the tram (Tranvia) you can easily walk to nearly everything you need ... or hop on the super fast and super clean Tranvia and be in El Centro in a matter of minutes. The condo also includes one deeded underground parking space and a bodega/storage unit.
The condo has an open concept living area with the living and dining area connected to the gourmet kitchen. A granite-topped island with two bar stools is the perfect place to chat with the chef or help with meal preparation. The kitchen has a modern stove, range hood, refrigerator, microwave, and oven, all included in the purchase price.
For entertaining, three more bar stools are located across the hall of the open concept home, where a large dry bar, with tons of storage for glasses, wine, and liquor provides the perfect place to start the party. There is also an entrance hall and a good-sized laundry room in the front area of the house, with a GE Profile washing machine and dryer that also comes with the unit.
In the living room is a great entertainment center that features a contemporary-styled electric fireplace, a place for a large TV with surround sound, beautiful wood cabinetry, tons of storage, cabinets, drawers, and places for treasures to be displayed. The leather couch and two comfy chairs are wall-hugging recliners and may be negotiated for a separate price, as is the case with the majority of furniture.
Winding around an unusual architecturally-designed corner are three bedrooms ... one en suite in the primary bedroom that has an extra deep soaking tub (a rarity in Cuenca), and a second full-sized bathroom that is shared by the other two rooms. Currently, the 2 other rooms are being used as a home gym and a large office with built-ins and room for two desks -- with filing drawers, cabinets, and built-in bookshelves -- overlooking the city and the river. These could easily be converted into guest rooms, should you want more sleeping quarters.
Professionally designed, custom wood cabinetry and built-ins are found throughout the condo and provide more storage than an average family will need. All built-ins, as well as the appliances, are included in the purchase price. Select furnishings will be for sale at an extra cost.
The property tax for this fantastic apartment is approximately $120. The HOA is $121 per month. Pets are allowed. Building amenities include centralized gas and hot water, 24-hour guard security with an excellent camera system, two elevators, and fiber-optic cabling for fast Internet speeds.
The asking price for this 3-bedroom, 2 full bath luxury Cuenca condo in a prime location with stunning views is $166,000.
