The dining room even has a beautiful mural commissioned by famed Cuenca artist, Cristian León. The kitchen, which also has access to the terrace and views of the cathedral, has granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances, and ample lighting. The kitchen appliances all stay with the apartment and other furnishings are negotiable. The grand, master bedroom has views of Turi to the south and the Cajas Mountains to the west, plus an unrivaled master bath with porcelain and mosaic tiles, a custom-built hydrotherapy tub, and an extra-large shower. Windows in the Master Bedroom and Bath are double-paned Termotec, for sound reduction. The main floor also includes an office/study with a view of the New Cathedral, and a second bedroom, and a bonus TV room that includes an en-suite bath.
