This 3,229 sq. ft., 3-bedroom, furnished Ricaurte home sits on 1.4 acres of rural land. A 10-minute drive to the center of Ricaurte and 10 minutes from the town of Deleg, the property is within walking distance from a small town called La Raya. Ricaurte has about 15,000 residents and is favored by locals, but is also becoming an expat destination just 15 minutes from downtown Cuenca.
The 4-year-old home is centered around a great room and dining area with one bedroom and bath on the downstairs level and two on the 2nd floor. The architectural details of this home are unique, with two winding wooden handcrafted staircases. a hand-painted tree of life, artisan-tile floors, and two lovely rod iron chandeliers leading the way to the very large primary bedroom on one side and to a guest room and bath on the other side of the upstairs. High ceilings, wooden beams, a charming front porch, beautiful mountain vistas and a large lot with tons of room for expansion, gardens or fruit trees, this is a typical, fully furnished Ecuadorian home that could soon be yours.
The home has a metal gate that secures the property entrance and has fencing around the perimeter. There are neighbouring properties around this home, but you feel very private once on the land. And the views are unobstructed and marvelous. There is also an attic and plenty of storage that comes with this distinct house.
The grand open-concept great room is the perfect area for entertaining with tons of seating areas, a dining corner, and an outdoor porch. The kitchen is located in a separate room off the dining room and comes with a stovetop, an oven, a range hood, a refrigerator, and a wooden table with six chairs for the asking price.
The en-suite downstairs bedroom is large enough for a queen or king-size bed and a seating area. The primary bedroom room tucked under the eaves of a high-domed ceiling shines as you look across the catwalk from the other side and from down below in the great room.
An enormous backyard with an old shade tree can be seen from the primary and is large enough to plant or play in. Mountain, valley, and scattered home views can be seen all around the property.
The asking price for this 3,229 sq. ft, 3-bedroom, furnished Ricaurte home on 1.4 acres of rural land is $220,000, negotiable.
