This spectacular North American built Challuabamba home dazzles in its construction and all the little extra touches that make this a very special purchase. Completed just 8 months ago, this 210 sq meter (2260 square feet) 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath duplex country home sits on top of a hill just between Challuabamba — an exclusive and burgeoning bedroom community of Cuenca — and Nulti — a small parish with a population of approximately 4,500 people.

Peace, solitude and absolute dream views are found at every turn, yet this property is only 6 minutes from Cuenca’s largest hospital, Hospital del Rio and 15 minutes to the historic downtown cultural capital of Ecuador. Challuabamba has small grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies and supply stores and is an up and coming neighborhood for both expats and well-to-do Ecuadorians.

The home is built with an open space concept and features high tongue and groove cathedral ceilings, large tempered glass windows for heat and sound management, and a variety of outdoor spaces including a manicured lawn, gardens, a skateboard ramp for kids, a rooftop terrace, and a large bodega that could easily be turned into a studio, office or gym. Large vegetable gardens and a chicken coop are also found on this property, making this the perfect “live off the land” option, with all the modern amenities offered in an urban home.

In the gorgeous chef’s kitchen. you’ll find an exquisite large marble island with lights underneath offers fun and sophistication and stunning lighted cabinetry, designed by a French master carpenter, provides tons of storage space. High-end appliances including a large double door refrigerator, stovetop, oven, a deep farmhouse sink brought from Canada, a glittering black and white backsplash, and a separate laundry room and pantry complete this gourmet kitchen. There is also a maid’s room.

The spacious great room, includes a gas fireplace with a fieldstone surround, lots of windows with ever-changing views. A dedicated dining room large enough for a table for eight that leads into the kitchen.

There are a master and office on the first floor and two bedrooms on the ground floor.

There is also an amazing rooftop terrace on the outside of the house up a spiral staircase.
