This large and enchanting Mediterranean style house is next to Cuenca's beautiful Yanuncay River and its walking, bike and exercise paths. The 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath home is 2,939 square feet and has 2,766 square feet of landscaped grounds surrounding the home. Vertical and container gardens abound with fruits, vegetables and herbs. A pergola, with a BBQ and all the plantings and greenery, make this a perfect entertaining space for friends and family. There is also a covered carport.
Upon entering the house, you are immediately struck by the sweeping staircase that leads you to the upper floors and bedrooms. The staircase makes a wonderful statement piece and first impression as you walk into the home. Terracotta and wood floors are found on the first floor, with carpeting warming your feet in the second floor bedrooms. The Master Bedroom is extra large and has a small sit-in balcony with river views. It also has double-pained windows and blackout shades, allowing for a peaceful and quiet night’s sleep. The Master Bath, with double sinks, has a skylight and a bathtub, often hard to find in Ecuador. Three of the bedrooms have river views.
There is also a maid’s bedroom with an additional bath on the premises. A wooden bar & library room and a small family area round out the floor plan. The delightful and highly functional kitchen has a small breakfast table for four, laminate floors, and lots of cupboard space. The large dining room highlights a gorgeous stained-glass window. This unusual gem features a cozy living room with large floor-to-ceiling rounded windows with views, making this a favorite, light & airy place to relax. A second, two-story sitting room and atrium include a lovely, circular stained-glass window and a large chandelier. An additional wooden staircase off the second floor takes you to the flat rooftop, which could be converted into a third floor should new owners want more room. Alternatively, it is perfect when used as a terrace with its expansive river views and seating options. The home also has a laundry room with washer hookups, a workshop area, an installed alarm system, a 721 gallon Cistern and TV Cable & ETAPA Fiber Optic Internet capabilities. Multiple bus lines are within 2 blocks of the home, and schools within walking distance.
