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.

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!

It’s rare that we think about changing our living situation to buy a property listing that we take on. But this property seriously made us think about it. For a lot of reasons. We decided not to do it for family reasons, but we will probably always think of this as “the one that got away!” Why? Well, let’s start with the number one criterion for a good property: Location. This Penthouse condo has one of the best locations in Cuenca. Just off of Remigio Crespo, overlooking a beautiful park, and a short 2-minute walk to the new El Batan mall. And walk another few minutes and you’ll be able to hop on the new Tranvia when it begins operation later this year. For city living, this location is a home run! What else made us want to buy this? Well, how about an amazing price? This beautiful 2-story Penthouse unit has a large outdoor space, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and 1,300 square feet of space and is listed for only $134,000! That’s crazy! Penthouse units of this caliber usually list in the neighborhood of $1,250 to $1,300 per square meter of space. This unit comes in at $1,100 per square meter! We haven’t seen this kind of price for a high-end Penthouse in years! Okay, so it’s in a great location and has an amazing list price. But is it a nice unit? Let’s just say that we can’t think of any way the builder could have made this a better unit! We absolutely love it! It’s modern in design and well appointment with high end fixtures and finishes. It is everything a buyer needs. It’s truly one of those places that pictures don’t do justice. So, call us today so we can escort you into this newer unit and introduce you to the security guards…they won’t just let anyone in, day or night!

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.

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.
