This corner unit penthouse has a fabulous, enclosed wrap-around terrace, and is centrally located near downtown, the Tram, Supermaxi and the Tomebamba River. This unique penthouse has amazing views, indoor gardens, and a second outdoor kitchen on the enclosed patio. The penthouse is 217 sq. meters (2,336), of which 155sq. meters (1,668) reflect the interior size of the home. There is a large open-concept great room with a living and dining room. The good-sized kitchen is separate and has wonderful views and charming features, including an enclosed laundry room and pantry. 

A welcoming hallway leading into the dining room, with glimpses of the beautiful living room beyond, makes entering this condo a joy. All of the bedrooms are en suite.  A social bath near the front door was converted by the owners into a small sewing room, but it has all the hook-ups and could easily be transformed back into a guest bath. The penthouse comes with 2 covered parking spots, centralized gas and a large bodega. The building has 2 elevators for ease and convenience and 24/7 security.

The dining room easily fits a table for eight with a large sideboard. There is also a bar in the room, as well as the sewing room/social bath. A wall leading to the inviting iving room allows for display cabinets, artwork or bookshelves. The layout of the penthouse makes it perfect for entertaining a crowd.

The wrap-around terrace is the piece de resistance. The owners have glassed it in, so no matter the weather, this is the place to be. Skylights and windows everywhere provide fresh air, gorgeous vistas, and so much room to enjoy the great outdoors ... indoors.

With entrances from the living room, primary bedroom, TV room, and hallway, access to the terrace is easy and convenient. In various areas of this oasis are gardens, a cascading stone fountain, flowering plants, various seating areas, a terrace bar, and a magical spot where a dining table and 4 chairs allow for al fresco dining ... rain or shine. Just past this area, another table has been strategically placed inside a full outdoor kitchen. Past the kitchen and behind a screen is a small exercise area that could be converted into whatever your heart desires. 

The large primary bedroom is big enough to have a couch at the end of the bed. The bedroom is en-suite and the bathroom has a bathtub ... a rarity in Ecuador.

The equally large guest room has a desk that spans one wall and is also en-suite. The third bedroom is currently being used as a TV room that goes out onto the terrace. It also comes complete with a bathroom so. should you want to have more sleeping areas, this room could be converted into a 2nd guest room or a dedicated office.

This delightful penthouse was designed with handicapped access in mind and as such, it has wider doors in many of the areas of the apartment, walk-in showers, grab bars, and other safety features. The underground parking lot is near the elevator and there are 2 elevators, so never a waiting period if one is under repair. The large penthouse is also on a single level.
