This move-in ready Cuenca 2-bedroom penthouse has views, views, views, and is located minutes from El Centro, Cuenca, and directly on the Tram route. This fully furnished, 1009 sq. ft. gem is light and bright thanks to windows in every direction, and each way you look provides vistas including the new Cathedral, the Stadium, the Cajas Mountains, and the colonial red rooftops of historic downtown. There's even a peek at Cuenca's best mode of transportation ... the Tram, which whisks you to Parque Calderon and the town center in less than 2 minutes, and the airport in less than 8.
The renovated, 118 sq. meter (1,270 sq. ft) penthouse has a large living room and dining room. The kitchen has granite countertops, tons of storage, and an island/bar for casual dining, and comes with all appliances including a stovetop, oven, refrigerator, microwave, range hood, and a washer and dryer among other everyday items such as dishes, glassware, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. A sofa, armchairs, a coffee table, side tables, a large-screen TV, a dining table with four chairs, 2 beds, and bedside tables (and bedding and towels), plus lighting features and lamps all come with the purchase price.
The primary bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with a bathtub, which is a luxury item in Cuenca apartments. There is also a second guest bathroom. Coved ceilings, high-grade piso flotante floors, quality window treatments, beautiful hardwood accent pieces, and built-ins provide warmth and ambiance to this move-in-ready penthouse.
Access to the unit, which is behind a locked gate, is convenient thanks to an elevator that takes you to the floor below -- with a few steps up to gain access to the apartment. The building itself is small and intimate with 3 apartments on each floor and five floors, and the penthouse was remodeled by a North American contractor approximately 8 years ago. There is a live-in guard/handyman on the property for 24/7 security. He also can help you with groceries, maintenance, or special requests you might have. The President of the HOA also lives in the building, so you can be assured that the property is well-maintained.
This lovely corner unit has light cascading in every direction thanks to all the windows, and the open-concept living and dining areas right off the kitchen make this an ideal entertaining home, where guests can enjoy bright cityscapes in the daytime, and glistening city lights and sunsets in the evening.
Restaurants, Supermaxi (Ecuador's largest grocery chain), pharmacies, cafes, shops, churches, and a hospital are all within walking distance. Should you want to walk into El Centro, it takes less than 15 minutes. You are also on bus lines, taxi routes, and the sleek and modern Tram.
This penthouse also comes with two parking spaces -- one inside and one outside -- and security cameras around the perimeter of the building. The monthly HOA fee is $83.
