Take in a deep breath and smell that wonderful food you have cooking in that outdoor barbecue/kitchen area. Wow, that’s so peaceful. Now, let yourself inside to see how beautiful the woodwork is, how perfect the combination of brick, adobe tile, and wood beams work together. Enjoy the rustic feel, because it makes you know you’re connected now. To nature. To peace. To relaxation. Finally, go pick out one of the two first-floor Master bedrooms for yourself.

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.

Want to get away to the country where you can have your own arboretum? To be able to walk on real grass and see flowers everywhere? To smell the eucalyptus trees at your feet? To have true peace and quiet? But want to keep all of the benefits of living in the city? Of being close to doctors and pharmacies. Of walking to the bank of the grocery store. Of meeting friends every day in different restaurants. So, you want all the peace and beauty of the country, but you still want to live with the benefits found only in the city? Hmmm…. tough to find that kind of life. But it is possible. It is possible to find an oasis in the city of Cuenca that will make you feel like you live among the trees and flowers and can enjoy true peace and tranquility. There is such a place, but properties in it don’t come up for sale often. In fact, maybe once or twice a year. And so, we are thrilled to be able to show you a new listing in this beautiful place. And it’s truly something exquisite! It’s in an exclusive kind of setting on a dead-end street, in a highly secure building that sits among a forest and some of the most beautiful landscaping you will find in the city. It’s set back from the busy city streets but is only a short walk from everything you need in your life. And best of all, the home itself is truly one of the most beautiful condominiums you will find in Cuenca. It manages to project class and sophistication while also offering tons of light and outdoor space for you to relax peacefully in, every single moment of every day. It’s an oasis in the city. It has 3 large light-filled bedrooms and 3.5 beautifully appointed bathrooms, and even an extra television/media room. The layout of the home is wide open and offers lots of options for configuration. Light floods into every room. The finishes are top of the line, including the real wood and stone tile floors, recessed lighting in the ceilings, and the large wall of glass that leads out to one of the most inviting covered terraces you’ll ever see. The open kitchen and dining areas make entertaining a dream and like the entire home, show off the level of care that was put into designing the condominiums in this high end, 24/7 security building. This is a special unit that offers country living in the city. It floods with light all day long and offers unrivaled indoor and outdoor spaces. It is for the discerning eye that can spot quality and is willing to invest in a long-term future of peace and tranquility. This amazing condo sells fully furnished and turn key ready!

In the heart of Cuenca's El Centro district stands a gloriously renovated, patrimonial mansion once belonging to the first Archbishop of Cuenca, Ecuador.  The grandeur of this 13,500 square foot jewel is a shining example of the harmonious blend of original artisan craftsmanship and the addition of the best exotic woods, stone, hand-crafted tile and rough-hewn marble. This grand house was built in the 1850s and served as the quarters of the first Archbishop of Cuenca. It still has the original rooftop chapel – only one of three rooftop chapels remaining in Cuenca. Enjoy the large, glass-covered terrace as you relax outdoors in any type of weather with a fabulous view of the blue domes of Azuay's largest church. The vaulted, wood ceilings with rough-hewn timbers in all rooms make for an expansive, opulent feeling of space. There are eight remote-controlled gas fireplaces placed throughout the house, including in each bedroom, a beautiful way to keep one warm and comfortable. Experience the soothing sound of the two indoor fountains or sit in the backyard as the flow of the outdoor fountain adds to the tranquil setting. You walk upon elegance on the gorgeous chanul hardwood (red mahogany) from the Amazon forest. The hardwood is used for flooring in the living room, grand sala, offices and bedrooms. The spacious master bath is floored in teak with room enough for the boards to expand, allowing the steam shower to go, well, full-steam ahead when you'd like some personal sauna time.
