This stunning landmark downtown Cuenca home on the Tomebamba River is 1,632.56 square feet, with a 954 square foot lot, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, two green lawns, riverside terraces and an ideal location between the Old Town and the newer part of Cuenca. The property is a prestigious and lovely historic cornerstone of residential Cuenca featured in many tourists’ photographs, artists’ paintings of La Escalinata, as well as print photo ads of the city. Lovingly refurbished by a prominent internationally-recognized architect from San Francisco, the 2-level house features an open-space living-dining area facing the river, which leads into a kitchen with granite countertops and plenty of storage, and a glorious sunroom with a skylight directly off the kitchen. There is also an office filled with bookshelves and built-in cabinetry, as well as a social (guest bath) on the first floor. Architectural details including hardwood floors, wooden beams, delightful archways, brick walls, recessed lighting and art lights, wooden panels, a working fireplace and tons of built-ins and hidden storage areas, make this a home extra special. On the 2nd floor is the master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a guest bedroom with a balcony facing the Escalinata, and a second office, that could easily be converted into a third bedroom. A large bathroom with a skylight is shared by the upper rooms. A beautiful seating area facing an adobe working fireplace opens out to another balcony facing the river and also includes a park view.

Long Description

This stunning landmark downtown Cuenca home on the Tomebamba River is 1,632.56 square feet, with a 954 square foot lot, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, two green lawns, riverside terraces and an ideal location between the Old Town and the newer part of Cuenca. The property is a prestigious and lovely historic cornerstone of residential Cuenca featured in many tourists’ photographs, artists’ paintings of La Escalinata, as well as print photo ads of the city. Located across the Moreno Bridge, on the corner of Tres de Noviembre at the bottom of Escalinata (steps) the home is near the Centro Interamercanos (CIDAP) museum. The house faces the Tomebamba River (ensuring a soothing night’s sleep). Beyond the river is the popular Parque de la Madre, a relaxing and enjoyable recreational facility which also includes Cuenca’s Planetarium. From there, it’s a short five-minute stroll through the park to Cuenca’s major grocery store chain, Supermaxi. A wide range of restaurants, cuisines and assorted services are easily accessible on that side of the river. And, all of El Centro, which starts at the top of the Escalanita steps, awaits you just a short 5 minutes away in the opposite direction. As perfect as the location is, the home is equally spectacular. Lovingly refurbished by a prominent internationally-recognized architect from San Francisco, the 2-level house features an open-space living-dining area facing the river, which leads into a kitchen with granite countertops and plenty of storage, and a glorious sunroom with a skylight directly off the kitchen. There is also an office filled with bookshelves and built-in cabinetry, as well as a social (guest bath) on the first floor. Architectural details including hardwood floors, wooden beams, delightful archways, brick walls, recessed lighting and art lights, wooden panels, a working fireplace and tons of built-ins, and hidden storage areas, make this a home extra special. On the 2nd floor is the master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a guest bedroom with a balcony facing the Escalinata, and a second office, that could easily be converted into a third bedroom. A large bathroom with a skylight is shared by the upper rooms. A beautiful seating area facing an adobe working fireplace opens out to another balcony facing the river and also includes a park view. Outdoors there is a gated garage space, lower and upper lawn areas, a locked metal bodega, multi-positioned security cameras, and horizontal white metal security window bars. Although a prominent historic home, the house is not a patrimonial property so changes and renovations to the home can easily be made without having to get permission from the Municipality. The asking price for this stunning landmark home in downtown Cuenca on the Tomebamba River is $399,500. All the appliances are included in the purchase price. Select furnishings may be negotiable.
