Property Description

Perched on a mountain top, this gorgeous single level home combines the best of country living with easy access to all of the city’s amenities. The house was custom designed by its current owners to incorporate U.S.-style features, fixtures and conveniences rarely found in other homes and was carefully crafted by one of Cuenca’s leading architects, Gabriel Reyes.

The front of the house overlooks all of Cuenca while the rear offers spectacular vistas of the Gordeleg River valley below. If the views take your breath away, there’s an abundance of clean, fresh mountain air in an environment of peace, safety and the tranquility of country living less than 9 miles from Cuenca.
The house is a single-level, bright, open, 3+ bedroom home with every comfort you could possibly imagine including a huge chef’s kitchen, thermostatically-controlled radiant heat floors throughout the house, and a master bedroom suite so large you could get lost in it.

Each bedroom features its own walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom while the master bedroom includes an incredibly luxurious master bath, separate his-and-hers walk-in closets, an adjoining sitting room as well as a separate oversized study that was purposely designed for convertibility to a fourth bedroom if desired.

The extra touches built in to this house and its surroundings are simply too numerous to list but equal or exceed what one would expect to find in the finest homes in Cuenca including a whole-house sound system, true US-style enclosed garage with remote-controlled overhead door, spacious double walk-in shower and separate Jacuzzi for two in master bath, recently-installed solar panels supplying hot water for the radiant heat system, European-style custom sliding glass doors, double-sided remote-controlled gas fireplace, outdoor kitchen with huge horno de leña and separate wood grill, floored attic with pull-down stairs, built-in monitored security system with 17 remotely accessible cameras (both inside and outside), huge patio with gas firepit, high-end imported North American appliances and plumbing fixtures, LED lighting, “zebra” blinds, and so much more.

The kitchen is enormous and built with both cooking and entertaining in mind. There’s a center island and tons of cabinetry with many custom racks and storage accessories. The appliances are also high end imported units including a dishwasher, garbage disposal, under sink water filter for the icemaker and a dedicated beverage faucet. Completing the picture there’s a large built-in convection oven and a 5-burner built-in gas cooktop. The kitchen area also features a huge walk-in pantry and breakfast room.

All this in 400 meters of construction (4300 square feet) and more than 5.5 hectares of land (55,000 m2 or 13+ acres).

Own your own mountaintop with incredible views, luxurious comfort, and all the advantages that Cuenca has to offer but none of its downside. Potable water is supplied by ETAPA (same as in Cuenca), trash is picked up weekly, gas is delivered at least twice weekly, unshared reliable internet service is provided by Austronet and Cuenca city bus route #24 serves Santa Ana seven days per week.

There’s an option to purchase the entire contents of the home (excluding personal effects) as well as a Lexus RX450 hybrid with approximately 55.000 miles.
