Listing No.


This turnkey, 2-bedroom, modern European-Style Yunguilla home sits on 1/3 of an acre (1200 m2) of lush and fertile land in the beautiful Yunguilla Valley just off a paved road between Lentag and La Asuncion. Everything from custom-made and high-end furniture, pots and pans, bedding, tools and more are included in this move-in ready gem. (The owners will take their personal artwork.)  The house is designed to be environmentally sound and sustainable with upgraded features rarely found in Ecuadorian homes. 

New windows, plumbing, electrical wiring, ventilation, mosquito screens, and custom made blinds have recently been installed. And, the attention to details are stunning from the walk-in glass showers, bathroom sinks, toiletries, cabinets and fixtures made in Germany to handcrafted wooden doors with Swedish locks. There is also an underground Septic bacteria tank. A solar water heater is mounted on the roof and the drinking water has a water filtration system. There is also a water regulating mechanism, allowing your to control the flow and temperature of the water. The garden, with overflowing fruits, has an irrigation system allowing for ease in taking care of the plants.

The beautiful mountain views and more than 50 different kinds of mature fruit trees, plus a large greenhouse make this a wonderful home or vacation property where you can relax in nature and grow your own food. The single-story home also includes a separate workshop, storage unit and a large laundry room. The home is found in a small gated community of four homes, with welcoming neighbors who look out for one another and provide goodies including fresh eggs, milk and chicken. There is a deeded easement driveway, shared by two of the homes, that makes the entrance -- with a large private gate -- easily accessible.

The 1300 sq ft (140m2) house is surounded by floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room making it light and bright with glorious views of the mountain and valley scenery. A front porch is the perfect place to have your morning coffee and greet the day with these amazing vistas. And a large back patio is ideal when entertaining friends and family or simply having your own al fresco meal.

The fully-equipped, gourmet kitchen is perfectly suited for a person who loves to cook with everything in easy reach. An integrated GE – electrical oven, large new 2 -door Samsung refrigerator, stovetop, range hood and all of the kitchen utensils, plates, glassware and kitchen aides are included in the purchase price.

There are two bedrooms -- one currently used as an office and guest room. The primary bedroom is en-suite. The social bathroom serves the living area and the 2nd bedroom. Both rooms have lovely outdoor views.

A city bus stops right outside this house should you want to go to Cuenca and the price is just $2.00 one way.

The annual property tax is only $21, the Internet is $35 a month, and utilities average $16.50 monthly.
