This relaxing country retreat affords peace and luxury, yet is only a 20-minute drive from the historic UNESCO World Heritage site city of Cuenca.
Located in the beautiful, rural community of Tarqui, near the popular restaurant and store, La Junta, this modern 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is 217 square meters of interior space with 72 square meters of terraces and pergolas. It is located on 1500 square meters of land.
Found in a small, exclusive and fashionable upscale community, on top of a hill, the valley and mountain views are spectacular, making this the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet close enough that a quick drive on the scenic Pan American highway, and you’re right in the center of the cultural capital of Ecuador.
Surrounded by manicured lawns, and stunning landscaped gardens … plants, flowers, and flowering bushes abound. And the porches and terraces provide the perfect space for every mood and occasion providing a variety of spots to unwind in tranquil and serene natural settings.
A double-sided gas fireplace with a stone surround and wooden mantle pieces greets you as you walk into the open space dining kitchen area. A formal living room is off to the side of the entryway, reached by the main door and its own private entrance. A more casual family room that serves as a TV room is also off the main entrance of the home.
The large terrace is seen as you enter the front door as well, and is accessed directly off the dining area through floor-to-ceiling glass and wooden doors. The expansive patio has its own separate seating and dining areas. The terra cotta brick flooring and the wooden covered pergola is the perfect place for dining al fresco, sipping your morning coffee or entertaining friends. A large green lawn and select stone pieces in the yard, make this a gardener’s dream.
There are also terrace and porch areas off the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms, as well as along the side of the house near the laundry area. A front lawn is also available for your pleasure, making this the perfect indoor-outdoor Shangri-la.
