Does buying a house mean buying a home? No, not always. Because there are things that make a house a home. And not every house has them. For us, having a yard and outdoor space is a really big part of what makes a house a home. A place to stick your toes in grass. To watch your grandchildren run around, to play catch with your kids. That’s a home. It’s family. It’s space. It’s comfort. And that’s what we felt like when we walked into this home. From the moment we entered thru the gate, we fell in love with the wrap around yard. With how large it was (4,100 square feet of land), with the large terraces on it. With an outdoor barbecue area. We just loved it. Then, we continued to be pleasantly surprised when we opened the door and saw how large, open and yet homey this house is. One thing that makes the inside of a house feel like a home are wood floors. And this home has them throughout. And it also has a beautiful, really beautiful, wooden staircase that immediately caught our eye. We also loved how open the rooms are in this home. There are so many great spaces it’s hard to focus on one. The formal living room, the formal dining room, the large TV area, and on and on. There is something for everyone here. Places were your entire family can feel like they have a spot just to themselves. Of course, that’s what you would expect in a 3,200 square foot home! One with 4 bedrooms AND a maid’s quarters! On three different levels. Before we forget, this home also sits in a fabulous location. It’s near the new El Batan shopping center, tucked away on a very quiet and safe street. Now, with all that said, one of the best things about this home for its new owner is the price! Even though this home was assessed at $300,000, it is listed at only $249,000 right now! Call us today to see how wonderful a HOME can be in Cuenca.

If you’re ready to move out of a cold, cramped condo in the city and into a large home in a warmer climate, then we have just the property for you. As most realtors and a lot of Cuencanos know, Challuabamba has its own micro-climate that is always warmer than Cuenca. And while it does get enough rain to stay green, it gets a lot less than Cuenca. On those cold days you may be suffering through in Cuenca, your friends in Challuabamba are probably doing just fine without the need for a space heater. Now, it’s not “HOT!” like Yunguilla, just a bit warmer and milder year-round. While you’re thinking about that, consider how beautiful this 3-bedrom, 3-bathroom home is! It sits on 700 m2 of land in a gated community, giving you plenty of room to grow whatever you’d like. And the house has over 3,100 square feet of space! How’s that for a lot of room!? All that space allowed the builder to create large open spaces both in the living and sleeping areas. You have a large living/dining room area, large bedrooms, a workout room, and even a separate TV area. The house itself is, well simply put, beautiful to look at! It’s by no means cookie-cutter. In fact, its contemporary look could easily be found anywhere in California or Seattle. Imagine all of this—a large home with open spaces, a nice sized yard, in a beautiful micro-climate, only minutes from Cuenca, in a gated community—for only $339,000 So, why be cold and live in a cramped city apartment when just a short drive away you can have all of this?! *Available furnished for an additional amount.
