This newly constructed unfurnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse is located in a luxury downtown Cuenca building -- Casas del Nogal -- in an unbeatable location. Nestled between the Tomebamba River and the bustling Calle Larga (with entrances on both sides), the condo is within easy walking distance to great restaurants, cafes, museums, cultural buildings and the famed El Barranco riverwalk.
This 3rd-floor walk-up is 87.56 square meters (942 square feet.) The apartment is six blocks from the city center and Parque Calderon and just across the river from the newer part of Cuenca with a second, large park -- Parque de la Madre -- where you'll find vast park and play areas and Cuenca’s Planetarium. Two blocks away is one of the city's largest mercado and the condo is within walking distance to Cuenca's major grocery store chain, Supermaxi.
This bright and light penthouse has an open concept living and dining area with floor to ceiling windows. Ceiling fans have been installed in both the living room and bedrooms, ensuring your condo will never get to hot on those balmy Cuenca days. The windows and a window in the kitchen can be open to allow for wonderful breezes. Included in the purchase price are all of the appliances including an oven, an electric range top, a vent hood, a microwave, a refrigerator, a dishwasher, and a full-size washer, and dryer housed in a small laundry area off the living room.
The kitchen and the bathrooms have granite countertops. There is a custom built bookcase with doors that open both to the living space and to the guest bathroom area for storage and ease. The Master bedroom is en-suite and the Guest bedroom has a full bath right outside, that also doubles as a social or guest bathroom. Both bedrooms have lots of closet space. The apartment has a small desk area outside the guest room, a separate laundry closet and a Bodega or storage unit. The condo also has an intercom, and is wired for Cable TV, and Internet. The building has central gas, meaning you never have to worry about running out of gas lugging heavy propane tanks into your home.
Gas is connected to the locations for the dryer and oven and an empty conduit has been run to both the kitchen and the laundry closet so that 220-volt power could easily be added if the buyers would prefer that. This condo also has its own hot water heater, which is located outside the apartment for safety. Built in 2017, Casas del Nogal is constructed around several walnut trees (Nogals) that were preserved during the construction and they have been incorporated into the beautiful green and flowering communal areas throughout the building.
The building also has a shared rooftop garden with spectacular views. The HOA is $95.74 per month. The list price for this great, unfurnished penthouse in the heart of downtown Cuenca is $140,000 if monies are transferred in the US. This penthouse is also ideally suited to be a rental investment property or Airbnb, with managers available to oversee all of the guests and rental activities.
