This stunning, 2,185 square foot apartment is the last condo available in a brand new, luxury Puertas del Sol building on the banks of the River Tomebamba in Cuenca. The 2-bedroom, 2.5 bath condo has an open concept living plan, with the kitchen, living and dining areas flowing into one another. The condo boasts floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that lead you out onto a beautiful terrace. The glass doors have three fold-back panels, that when opened, offer direct access to the terrace from any part of the living room and also affords an incredible way to bring the outdoors inside.
Located in an elevator building, on the highest floor besides the penthouse, the condo faces the river and has spectacular, unobstructed views of the Cajas Mountains, the river, and Cuenca. This is a 24/7 security building and it’s so new that even the plastic hasn’t been taken off the furniture in the lobby yet. Still, this is the only unit left in the building, so don’t hesitate! The condo comes with 2 parking spaces and a bodega (storage unit) located in the secure underground garage.
Originally a three bedroom, the current owners took down a wall to make a super large Master Bedroom, with huge closets and a small studio space artfully tucked behind sliding wooden doors, with two desks, shelving & storage and Internet connection. The Master Bath has tons of counter space and all natural travertine stone, and includes a walk-in shower. Radiant heat has been installed under the floors in both the Master and the Master Bath, creating a warm and cozy feel, even on those chillier mornings. The guest bedroom has plenty of closet space and an en-suite bath with a shower.
The gourmet, cook’s kitchen features high-quality granite from Duramas, an induction cook top, an oven, a microwave, hook-ups for a full size washer and dryer, and real hard wood cabinets with plenty of storage space. An oversized wooden island was added by the owners, as was a breakfast bar. The island has the same high-quality granite countertops and it provides ample space for cooking or for guests who want to be part of meal preparation. The island is also wired for electricity, so all your electronic cooking devices can easily work there. A pass-through window in the kitchen, makes the perfect way to easily send food out to the terrace — where there is enough room for a BBQ or Outdoor Kitchen, seating, a table and umbrella with more room to spare.
The floors throughout the condo are engineered bamboo hardwood with a permanent finish that is ten times harder than oak and also gorgeous to look at. Fabulous floor-to-ceiling draperies are found throughout the apartment and are included in the purchase price, as are designer chandeliers.
The list price for this brand, new, never-been-lived-in condo is $265,000.
