Often, you’ll hear realtors call properties, “One of a kind,” or they’ll say, “You’ve never seen anything like this!”
And, so often the properties are not only not one of a kind, they are truly boring as well!
After you read about this property, look at the photos—and if you’re ready to see something truly exquisite—toured the property, you’ll be the one saying, “Wow, that’s one of a kind! I’ve never seen anything like it!”
Because this home, minutes away from the Cajas National Park, is really a one-off amazing architectural beauty that has appeared in Architecture and Design magazine.
There is no home like it because it was built custom and sits on a unique piece of property that allowed it to be fashioned into the nature it surrounds.
To start with, the home has been constructed around a steel infrastructure, overlayed with hand-made brick. The roof is covered with artisan tiles and all the windows and glass walls are Termovent double paned glass (the best quality available).
The other walls are thermal insulated, and the home boasts three Swedish-made gas fireplaces. And the German-made (Category 5) floating floors are even heated with a Termipisos system. Meaning… that this beautiful home was built for the extremes of mountain temperatures, both hot and cold.
The hot water from the high-efficiency hot water tank runs through copper pipes, not plastic. The electrical system and LED-lighting throughout the property, both internal and external (and on the access roads) were installed to North American standards. As were the alarm system and multi-directional surveillance cameras.
The 260 square foot balcony overlooking the valley is surrounded by tempered glass walls and directs your view to the beautiful waterfall that actually provides the water that is purified and used in the home.
The 3-story, 4,500 square foot home, sits on one hectare (2.4 acres) of fenced in forest, with unobstructed views of some of the most beautiful land in Ecuador.
Inside, every material used was chosen with care: the Spanish tiles and ceramic used in the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms, the local hardwood used for the stairs, the teak wood used for bathroom cabinets and external doors, the tempered shower doors, the modern design faucets and sinks, and the quartz counters in the kitchen and baths, all show that no expense was spared in building this home. So, whether you are relaxing in the 1,000 square foot living room on the third floor, playing on the satellite-provided-internet in the 1,000 square foot social area on the first floor, or sleeping behind the blackout curtains in one of the three enormous bedrooms, you always feel comfortable and know that you’ve found luxury and style that is rarely ever found in Ecuador. This 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, one of a kind, Architecture and Design home, can be yours now for only $489,000.
