Live in a penthouse apartment and feel like you’re living in a large luxury house. With 575 square feet of terrace and over 3100 square feet of interior living space, most people would agree this residence feels more like a private home than a condo unit. Anyone who has lived in Cuenca for any length of time knows that El Vergel is the most prestigious and convenient location in Cuenca as well as one of the safest and most tranquil.
Located between Cuenca’s two most beloved rivers I refer to the residential part of El Vergel as the “Oasis” inside the city. The apartment is only blocks from Supermaxi Vergel, Parque de la Madre, Millennium Plaza, top-tier hospitals, delicious restaurants, banks and more! And most important, within just a short walking distance is Cuenca’s beautiful colonial district–El Centro.
The entrance into this elegant 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom apartment is via private elevator access into the open concept floor plan of the dining and living rooms. The living roomis bathed in light from one oftwo large terraces. The dining room boasts a beautiful mural commissioned by famed Cuenca artist, Cristian León. The kitchen, which also has access to the terrace and views of the cathedral, has granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances, and ample lighting. The kitchen and laundry room appliances all stay with the apartment and other furnishings are negotiable.
The grand master bedroom has views of Turi to the south and the Cajas Mountains to the west, plus an unrivaled master bath with porcelain and mosaic tiles, a custom-built hydrotherapy tub, and an extra-large shower. Windows in the master bedroom and bath are double-paned Termotec, for sound reduction. The main floor also includes an office/study with a view of the New Cathedral, a second bedroom, and a bonus TV room/bedroom that includes an en-suite bath. There is an additional social bath on the main floor.
Designed as separate living quarters for guests or renters, the second floor has a large bedroom, bath, sitting area, and second kitchen which opens out to a gorgeous rooftop terrace revealing spectacular views. In addition to a beautiful pergola, the terrace is equipped with an automatic irrigation system which allows for the plants to be watered — even if owners are away!
The penthouse has garage parking for two cars and comes with a large storage space. Penthouse apartments in this neighborhood almost never become available and especially not penthouses like this one! Don’t miss this opportunity–Call today and schedule a showing!
