This designer North American style tri-level, move-in ready home is located in the beautiful San Joaquin Valley, about 20 minutes from Cuenca and in close proximity to Cuenca’s prestigious Golf and Tennis Club.
San Joaquin is an exclusive area favored by both expats and local professionals and provides country charm, close to a major cultural center.
As you enter the house through a massive custom-crafted front door you are immediately wowed by the large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area featuring a floating wooden staircase, an inviting modern gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and a striking water feature. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the home offer spectacular views overlooking Cuenca to the east and the Cajas Mountains to the west. Granite and stone walls, marble-like flooring and wood Parque give this home an opulent yet warm feel. The home is furnished with high-quality local and exported furnishings, artwork and appliances, all included in the purchase price.
The gourmet chef’s kitchen has granite countertops, a large island and lots of custom real-wood cabinets and storage. The kitchen includes a six-burner gas range with hood, a GE microwave and oven, a GE dishwasher and a full size, double-door GE refrigerator-freezer. All GE appliances were brought from the United States and are included in the sale. The kitchen is also fully equipped with top quality chef’s knives, pans and cooking utensils (also brought from the U.S.), plates, glasses and culinary extras, ready-made for entertaining.
The living room features a large L-shaped couch with plenty of room for friends and family. The dining room with a table for eight is located between the living space and the kitchen and is surrounded by glass, offering dazzling, ever-changing mountain and valley views. There is also an office on the first floor with a desk and a Cherry-wood secretary that is a reproduction of a Federal-style secretary handcrafted in the 1950s – perfect for antique buffs and collectors. A social bath is found on the first floor as well.
A large balcony and patio across the back of the home connect the kitchen to an ample media room featuring a new 55” wall mounted television, a new Samsung blue-ray DVD player, an Amazon Fire, and a Meridian disc player to play an included selection of DTS and Dolby 5.1 surround sound disks. The media room features a large leather sleeper sofa with a Tempurpedic queen size mattress for extra guests. This room also comes with a Tibetan wool rug with a Frank Lloyd Wright design and tons of storage, a walk-in closet and a bathroom with double sinks. As such it could easily be converted to a third bedroom should the new owners desire more sleeping space.
The top floor master suite features a queen size bed facing views of Cuenca and has a private balcony — perfect for morning coffee — a cozy sitting room boasting a second designer gas fireplace, a large walk-in dressing room with custom closets, and an en-suite bathroom with double sinks, a rain shower head and body sprays. All bath and bed linens, comforters and towels are top quality brought from the US and come with the home.
A large en-suite guest room has its own terrace with lovely country views.
The open-air lower level features a covered laundry area with a new GE washer and dryer, also from the United States, 1,000-liter reserve water tanks, a water pressure pump, and a general utility area.
A 360-degree yard area is fully landscaped with beautiful plants and flowers and a manicured lawn and has an automatic drip watering system, so your greenery will stay beautiful with little effort.
A high fence with an electrified top surrounds the property, with a wide automated gate providing entry from the road to the large parking area. The security system includes video screens on both living levels to view and converse with visitors at the gate. Motion detector alarms cover the entire property, inside and out, and are wirelessly monitored by the security firm Omnitron. High-speed Internet is available throughout the home.
