An innovative 4-story home with elevator and a great potential income stream as an Airbnb property is now for sale in the historic, El Centro area of Cuenca. Perfect as an investment property or private home, this unique property was built from the ground up by a North American in 2014.
This special property features 4 floors – each 323 square feet -- for a total construction area of 1,292 square feet. Floors one, two and three each have a separately keyed entry door and include one great room, one large bathroom with bathtub, and one kitchenette. The top floor has a bathroom, enclosed laundry area, and an outdoor terrace with a hot tub/spa, making this building an ideal investment property that ... with very little work or further cash ... could soon be housing visitors from around the world. Thanks to its exceptional location and foot traffic, floor one could also be turned into a cafe or wine bar.
Situated on a pedestrian walkway overlooking Rio Tomebamba, right off the popular street, Calle Larga, the property is only four blocks away from the town's center, Parque Calderon. Conveniently located just off the river, it’s an easy walk across the river to the new part of town as well, with its Supermaxi grocery store and many fine restaurants. The current owner, who is the single occupant, has designated each floor as a different room in his home – the ground floor (floor 0) features a workroom, the first floor is used as a living room, and the second floor as a bedroom. Both the first and second floors have exterior balconies with views of the downtown Cuenca and the Tomebamba River area, as well as the newer part of Cuenca across the river. So, if the buyer prefers a single family dwelling, this unique space can easily be converted to a dazzling 4-story condo with an elevator … something rarely found in downtown properties.
The floors throughout the home are a combination of tile and bamboo. Floors 0 and 1 are protected by an alarm system, and the first floor balcony has an electrified security fence. All cold and hot water supply lines are copper and an emergency water supply tank is installed on the roof. This exceptional property comes with the spa tub, patio, refrigerator, microwave, range oven and hood, built-in bookshelves, an infrared wall heater, window shades, ceiling fans, a wall mounted flame heater, carbon monoxide detectors, propane gas detectors, alarm system, balcony security fence, and much, much more. A detailed list of inventory items is available upon request. Whether you’re looking for a stunning home or an investment opportunity, this property has it all.
The listing price is $134,000.
