The Top Portal for Cuenca Real Estate

Cuenca, with its cobblestone streets and stately mansions, has become one of the world´s top retirement destinations. The city, Ecuador´s third largest, is home to approximately 350,000 citizens, and an estimated 4,000 expats. It is an extremely walkable city, and expats often gather near the Parque Abdon Calderon for coffee or drinks. The city is flush with both modern conveniences including 18 hospitals, and with 4 major universities attracting students from all over the world, it is often referred to as the Athens of the Andes.

Cuenca´s temperatures range from 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit, and is often hailed as the city of eternal spring. For those who love the outdoors, Cajas National Park offers incredible year round hiking. Most expats live extremely well on $2000 a month.

If you are seeking a rich cultural life with international symphonies and ballets and a mix of the historic and the modern, come see what makes Cuenca such a special place to retire.

In one of the best Cuenca areas, between Vergel and Paucarbamba, this 3-bedroom plus full maid quarters, 4 bathroom place was recently remodeled despite it being only 10 years old, which is fairly new in the Cuenca area. Social areas such as the living space and dining room are enormous and there’s even a separate tv area, pantry room and super spacious laundry. At just $239.000 for over 3000 square feet of living space, this is a great deal especially considering there’s even a jacuzzi and very nice shower cabin in the master bedroom. Another feature you don’t see often in condos is a full maids quarter. Floors are channel which usually is an expensive extra. There’s also an elevator in the building so if you don’t like stairs this one could be an option. The kitchen is very bright and has white cabinets which is a welcome change from the dark traditional kitchen that are very common in Cuenca. This unit has the potential to create a nice terrace. Call us today to go and visit this place.

Someone has already done the work to make this home spectacular. You’ll know that the minute you walk in. You’ll see it and feel it. The floors won’t sink under your feet because they are real hardwood. The walls are not beige. They’re not all white. They’re not all smooth. Because in all the right places the owners have put in stone to give the home texture and warmth. Again, someone has already done the work. You’ll feel and see these things throughout this large, 1,600 square foot condo. In the kitchen for example, you’ll know someone was thinking when they laid out the curved counter. And you’ll fall in love with the person who thought to put in the cooktop and vent and the always sought-after dishwasher. And all that cabinet and draw space! And we will warn you now, be ready for all the closets in the master bedroom, because you’ll be shocked when you see them! Again, someone has already done the work. Want outdoor space? Well, the large terrace on the front of the home will give you plenty of space for outdoor living when Cuenca gives us those lovely Spring-like days. Now of course, we have to tell you that the bathrooms will make you smile. They’re beautiful, well designed, and the master even has a whirlpool tub! Finally, before we forget, this is home is in the perfect location, right on Paucarbamba Street. But don’t worry, you’ll have garage parking, so that will never be a problem. As we said to start, someone has done all the work! Now you just have to come and see what $189.000 can buy you when you want to live somewhere amazing! Montly condo fee: $120 per month Property taxes: $125 aprox.

Just 3 blocks from Monay Shopping and 20 min from the historic center, this is an ideal location. You’re also closer to Gualaceo or Paute if you go there often.

You won’t have to climb any stairs either because this place has an elevator. Once inside you’ll be blown away by the space, it has a very open concept, a big kitchen with a nice cooking isle, windows surround the kitchen as well and the living room even has a big build in fireplace. What more could you want. Having 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms would seem enough to most people, but this place even has a separate studio (which could be turned in another bedroom), and even an independent loft arae of about 1000 sf. The bedrooms are very spacious and the main bathroom even has a nice jacuzzi in a small atrium so you could be taking a bath looking up at the stars at night, or enjoy a nice sunset while bubbling away in the jacuzzi.

This 3745 square feet house sits on top of 2463 square feet of terrain along the river in one of the most exclusive areas in Cuenca. Rio Sol... is a nice neighborhood not far from Monay shopping Inside this big corner house you’ll find that almost all of the tiles are imported from Italy, the floors are real hardwood instead of piso flotante, the cabinets and closets are real hardwood as well. All of the kitchen counters are stone, there are build-in pots for plants both in- and outside and there’s even a cinema/theatre room. To protect all of this there’s a IP camera system that can be linked to your phone and that goes together perfect with the high-end alarm system. With all of these extras you’d expect small or few bedrooms, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, and the master bedroom is huge and even has a custom enormous bathtub. There’s also a big terrace on top of the house with space for a barbeque, or even a ping pong table. Houses like this rarely come up for sale, let alone in a neighborhood like this. Please email us for more info and photos.

We love, love, love this unit! And that is the first time we have EVER used those words in one of our listings! Really! It’s not the biggest unit we’ve ever listed. Or in the most well-known building in Cuenca. It doesn’t come with maid service and it doesn’t have a roof-top pool. But it is by far, one of the most perfect units we have ever come across. It’s a 900-square-foot one-bedroom, 1-bathroom condo that is FULLY FURNISHED and comes with EVRYTHING you will ever need to live happily ever after in Cuenca The current owner clearly spent hour-upon-hour combing through Cuenca to find the perfect couch, or lamp, or painting for every spot in the home. And it shows. Nothing has been forgotten or just casually handled. Just take a look at the outdoor kitchen and padded bench seating. All custom. And beautiful! And while you are out there, consider the tranquility of the area. The building backs up to green space with lots of tress and few neighbors. It’s a quiet and super secure retreat! The building itself is in fact one of the best in town, if not the most well-known. It’s on a dead-end street and is nestled in a park-like area. Yet it is close to the new Tranvia and Supermaxi Las Americas. Like the unit itself, the building is perfect and in a perfect location. Inside, take a look at the top-of-the-line flooring. And a small, but gourmet fitted kitchen that even boasts a wine cabinet! In the living area, the dining table and chairs and L-shaped couch are also top-of-the-line and where chosen specifically for their spots. Chosen with care. With an office space, washer and dryer utility closet, and custom lights throughout, the owner continued to show off how much detail he could handle when he made this place a home. Topping it off are the beautiful bedroom with a giant WALK-IN closet and a fully fitted custom bathroom. All in all, you’ll not find a nicer place, in a better location, at anywhere near the price this is listed for. When we heard the owner was only asking $135,000 for it, we almost….. Price can be dropped if don’t want the furnishings.

This fixer up has a lot of things going for it. Among a couple of the features are a wrap around garden, more than 1000 square meters, and sound foundations and structure. The house could use some cosmetic touches, but it’s a good place to start at. 3 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms, a very spacious attic area, a super spacious kitchen, an outside barbeque area and lots more. The house being single level breaks up the traditional style a bit by working with a couple of step ups that divide the space very nicely. Bathrooms are spacious as well with double sinks and much more. There’s lots of natural light as well, which really brightens up the place. The wraparound garden is just the icing on the cake, and is ready to be hauled over and turned into something amazing. This wonderful house is located in the best residential part of San Joaquin, west of Cuenca. Super exclusive, secure and calm area. For more than a thousand square meters land and 250 square meters of construction, this isn’t a bad deal if we say so ourselves.
