Wow! this condo is not for the faint of heart. We almost had to take a seat upon entering this palatial home just from the mind-blowing views alone. Simply Breathtaking. Without a doubt this unit has one of the most spectacular views in all Cuenca and it is still located conveniently close to town! This unit being the builder’s own flat there was no expense spared. And some lucky person is going to have the opportunity to obtain this masterpiece. The apartment is so spacious and well designed that it feels more like a huge home than an apartment. The most unique feature being that the apartment has its own yard, complete with a vertical garden, wooden deck with a built-in jacuzzi and a 270 degree view encompassing all of Cuenca. This truly unique setting is only possible because of the unique placement on the mountain. These views, which are found throughout the entire apartment, are the most dynamite, panoramic views of the entire city. Entering into the main floor you find an open living and dining room adjacent to the large kitchen. All of these areas look out over the city including the terrace which flows off the living room. The kitchen is open style with cultivated marble counter tops, an incorporated laundry room, and a pantry storage area. Also on the main floor is a large master-bedroom, sharing the stunning scenery, equipped with a walk-through closet and large ensuite bath. On the other side of the apartment there is the first guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. A nice feature, this bedroom has a separate entrance for visitors. Take the large, open stairway to the lower level and you will find another master bedroom and bath with even more beautiful views. There is also an additional living area which could be used as a den or tv room, office, exercise room or any number of things. Head out to the large garden area and you’ll find the patio with jacuzzi tub! We were truly amazed by the quality and artistic character of this home. The warm embrace of the plentiful light, the open yet dynamic flow of the apartment, along with the plants and gardens inside and outside the home, make this unit everything a discerning buyer could want. Worthy of designer magazine, but also perfect for a family home, this is a truly unique setting! The home totals 240m2 of indoor space on two floors with 3 bedrooms (and a possible 4th), 3.5 bathrooms, plus the garden patio and jacuzzi. Security for the building is included in the condo fee. Two parking spaces are included with the unit plus a bodega. Again, we emphasize — the views are some of the best we have ever seen in Cuenca and if you love quiet this is a great spot as well. The habitants has easy access to downtown; 5 minutes by taxi, 10 minutes on the bus or you can even walk to Ordoñez Lasso downhill in about 10 minutes. The small but luxurious building is also excellent quality being earthquake resistant along with other features such as underground parking, elevator access and a live-in guard. All of this at an incredibly reasonable asking price of $290k. You won’t find this quality at this price. It’s a truly one of a kind investment. Other recent sales for much smaller units have sold for $275K and 280K. Book a showing today!
