Crafted approximately five years ago, the main house showcases a blend of locally sourced brick, steel, concrete, and stonework. Premium aluminum sliding windows with screens invite natural light while maintaining a connection with the outdoors. The interior features finished wood baseboards, door casings, and exposed brick, adding warmth and character throughout. The master suite features a king-size Murphy bed with a new Zinus mattress, opening up to the firepit and gardens. This suite is complemented by a walk-in closet and an elegantly tiled bathroom with a spacious multidirectional shower, complete with an on-demand electric water heater.

 

Centrally located within an original adobe building, the kitchen, dining, and laundry area showcase granite countertops and premium appliances, including a large refrigerator, front-loading washer/dryer, and a half-size dishwasher, all recently updated within the last year. An on-demand electric hot water heater ensures ample hot water supply for the kitchen and the Blue Bathroom. The presence of a fireplace—an uncommon feature in Ecuador—adds a touch of coziness. The property is also equipped with a robust battery/inverter backup power system, currently servicing essential appliances such as the refrigerator, freezer and cabana. This system can easily integrate with solar panels, a charge controller, and a wind charger (pre-existing but not currently installed).

 

The third building encompasses the Blue Bathroom and a versatile room currently designated for storage, which formerly served as the laundry area. The bathroom boasts exquisite tilework, a tiled shower, and tile flooring.

 

Elevated within the garden and accessible via recently renovated steps of handcrafted Ecuadorian stonework with steel handrails, the cabana offers breathtaking vistas. Constructed with an attention to detail, the cabana features premium materials such as concrete, steel, stone, and locally fired brick. Ceramic tile flooring, premium metal sliding windows with screens, decorative security bars, and a steel entry door with a keyless deadbolt ensure both aesthetics and security. The cabana offers electric service, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a small refrigerator. Fully furnished and thoughtfully designed, this space is an inviting guest room or a potential rental opportunity. A well-appointed bathroom is conveniently located in the lower garden building.
