Just 30 minutes from Cuenca is an inviting 2,900 square foot, gated country estate that exudes peace, quiet and warmth. This architecturally-built, 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is both comfortable and grand, expansive yet homey and is a wonderful place to live if you are longing for the quiet of the country, with spectacular mountain views in a safe environment near a major Ecuadorian city.
Located in the greater Cuenca area, 5 minutes from Paute in the small community of Uzhupud, the property is away from it all, but close to everything and is the perfect tranquil home you are looking for. Originally priced at $310,000 the owners have made a substantial adjustment and this glorious property is now available for $278,000.
You enter the palatial grounds, through a beautiful brick and wrought-iron security gate monitored by remote and on-site security systems and four cameras. Once inside you discover a lavish, landscaped yard, with beautiful stone steps leading to the house.
The entire property is surrounded by stunning brick walls, providing both beauty and extra security. Gorgeous red-tiled multi-angled roofs complete the one-of-a-kind look.
A relaxing front porch welcomes you to sit and marvel at the absolute peace and serenity surrounding you. Inside the home is a unique and wonderful open living space with an impressive center winding wooden staircase that has a fireplace built right into it. The stairs lead to the upper loft-style Master Suite and are the centerpiece of this distinctive home.
The open concept area has gorgeous cathedral ceilings and includes a living room with the fireplace, a kitchen with an eat-in bar and green granite-like countertops. Appliances include a gas stove and oven, two refrigerators (one in the bodega), a dishwasher, and a microwave that are included in the purchase price. An adjoining dining room surrounded by windows looking out to the manicured backyard is the perfect place to gather with friends and family. There is also a pantry and a laundry room off the kitchen that includes a full-size washer and dryer, which also comes with the sale.
A second enclosed indoor/outdoor dining room and a wrap-around porch provide endless possibilities for dining and entertaining. There is also a great barbeque area. The landscaped backyard includes lush trees, bright and colorful flower beds and shrubs, and a beautiful stone fountain that soothes the soul with the delightful sound of cascading water.
