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.

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 place can be bought for 249.000 or can be rented semi furnished for 900 with all services such as water, gas and internet included.

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.

La Paz is an amazing place located 45 minutes outside of Cuenca. This specific property could be turned into ANYTHING!!!! a HUGE personal paradise, a super nice and luxurious TOURIST HACIENDA, a super exclusive MEDITATION CENTER, or could easily be turned into a high-class RESORT. There are several reservoirs on the more than 45 hectares in which 30 of them are natural forest, and 15 completely useful land... , 2 huge cabins with an aprox. built space of 950 m2 (10.174 sf), a play room with billiards, a stable, a big bird cage, restaurant and lots more... We don’t even know where to start. The main cabin has a heated indoor pool, social room, bar area, and incredible views.
