This unique accommodation is a luxury el centro pied a’tere, which occupies the entire second floor of a fine Patrimonial building on one of the best streets in Cuenca, in the heart of the historic district, one and a half blocks from the Parque Calderon (the central square), the beautiful blue-domed cathedral, and the colorful flower market. You are just steps away from shops and mercados, Nectar organic market, the best resturants, trendy coffee shops, the main tour office and city tour bus, museums, galleries, churches -- everything you will want on your visit to Cuenca! This historic home, built by a well-known German architect in the late 1920’s, was fully restored in October of 2013 by a talented interior designer and artist.
This Patrimonial property has lots of charm with French doors and romantic balconies above the street, hand tooled plaster 12 foot ceilings, beautiful solid hardwood floors and doors throughout, sweeping windows and/or French doors in every room, three very large living rooms, a comfy study for TV and movie viewing, double delux guest bedroom and bath, custom gourmet kitchen and two balconies. It is filled with fine, lovingly collected antiques, genuine oriental carpets, and original art from around the world, and custom designer furniture, including down-filled sofas and charis. The interiors are beautiful, eclectic and classy, reflecting a calm peace and beauty that is truly unique in the desirable El Centro area of Cuenca. Additionally, it rests one of the quietest streets in historic El Centro. Luxury, Comfort and Peace are the topnotes here. People say this is the most beautiful house in Cuenca!
You will rest deeply and enjoy your respite from the animated city, cocooned on the second story above one of the quietest streets in the historic downtown area. The house is quiet and tranquil, with very little traffic noise even outside on the open balconies. The building consists of a lovely lobby, two floor-through apartments, and an attic space (owners). With only two floor-through apartments in this building, both belonging to the owner, so you will not be disturbed by noise from other tenants or offices in the same building. Security is excellent. You must pass through three locked doors to enter, and the street door is locked at all times.
Rent is less than you would pay for one room in a fine hotel, and you will have a quiet, centrally located luxury accommodation with a comfortable imported memory foam bed, four extra large rooms to relax in, plus a fully equipped American standard kitchen.
The guest room is a lovely double room, with a cushy queen-size memory-foam mattress and 1000 thread-count sheets, abundant down-filled pillows and duvet, a large desk, chair, antique dresser, colorful art, and a full private bath adjoining.
