For sale: 2-story pine forest retreat near El Cajas mountains

This captivating two-story pine forest retreat at the entrance to El Cajas National Park in Cuenca enhances all of your senses. From the moment you enter the palatial gate, a forest wonderland greets you, and an original log cabin, built seven years ago and a huge add-on sunroom and cozy entertainment pavilion, built four years ago, make this one of the most unique homes you will find anywhere. And, its location at the entrance to the UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere park means no other buildings or homes can ever be built here, ensuring the pristine views, crisp and clean mountain air, and the deeded water rights will forever be protected.

Situated on one acre of primal forest land surrounded by a fence and a large entrance gate, this one-of-a-kind home is built from natural materials including river rock, indigenous wood, and local pine, but its foundation is solid and there is a brand-new roof, a lighted path, security sensors, and a huge underground basement. Direct TV and Internet are available, as are all the modern amenities making this country home move-in ready.


The home itself is inviting, warm, and welcoming with a corner fieldstone wood-burning fireplace (that could easily be converted to gas should you prefer), a full kitchen and bar area, multiple seating areas, and a TV corner all located in the original log cabin area. The second floor, also in the original structure, is accessed by a beautiful, hand-crafted wooden staircase, and is an open loft space with two designated areas — one for the master bed and the other for two double beds. Although open, the spaces are private and could easily be closed off should you want more privacy. There is also a bathroom upstairs, so no night wandering is required. The wonderful arches, angles, and wooden details in the sleeping quarters make this a truly special place to sleep and revive.

An expansive glassed-in sunroom attached to the cabin includes a large fire pit, a second retractable fire pit grill table, a second colorful bar area, a dining room, and comfy cozy places to read a book, sip a warm cup of tea, or sit at the bar for an afternoon glass of wine. All of the windows in the sunroom retract, bringing the outdoors in and expanding the feel of this incredible room during warm summer days.

Outdoors in the back of the house is a good-sized terrace with ample seating, a giant smoker, a grill, running water, a marble-top chopping block, and lots of cooking and counter space for an intimate dinner for two, or a giant barbeque for a crowd. This home is truly an entertainer’s dream.

The home has deeded water rights and a water filtration system. Water pressure in the showers and sinks is strong. The gas tanks are located by the front gate and gas is pumped into the home, so no heavy lifting of gas tanks is required. A califon is located outside the house. There is a septic tank on the property and electricity is provided by the city. In the basement, there is a security system with cameras monitoring the property from a variety of angles. The basement could also be turned into an elegant wine cellar, a workshop, a “man cave”, an office or arts and craft space.

This incredible and peaceful home is the perfect weekend or vacation getaway or live-in home, just 30 minutes from the famed colonial city of Cuenca, where major restaurants, hospitals, grocery stores, and cultural activities are found. But there is no lack of local restaurants serving some of the best trout in the world including Dos Chorreras (https://hosteriadoschorreras.com/), which is one of Cuenca’s most famous hosterias with a fabulous restaurant, hotel, garden, hiking trails, trout ponds, a gourmet store, and a bar, which is only five minutes away.

The world-renowned El Cajas park has infinite hiking trails through evergreen cloud forests and hundreds of lakes and bike paths. El Cajas is home to rich wildlife including Andean condors, giant hummingbirds, and raccoon-like coatis, plus llamas and alpacas, wild horses, and amazing flora and fauna. Just outside the park, next to this beautiful home, is the Santuario de la Vírgen del Cajas, an outdoor pilgrimage site where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared.

The home comes nearly furnished, with personal items not included. Most of the rest of the furnishings are negotiable and appliances are included.

The listing price for this captivating two-story pine forest retreat at the entrance to El Cajas National Park is $299,000.

Address: El Cajas, Cuenca.

Mazon is known for its diverse ecosystem with more than 350 species of plants and endemic species of birds. Living here means you are surrounded by nature, and not other neighbors.

For sale: ground-floor condo in luxury La Terrassa; has huge terrace

This ground-floor Cuenca condo in a luxury riverside building has a 974 sq. ft patio with beautiful green gardens, a garden shed, and a covered pergola. Located in the coveted La Terrassa building, directly on the Tomebamba River in Puertas del Sol, this 122.3 sq. meter (1,318 sq. ft) condo has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a large kitchen (overlooking the patio), a spacious living/dining area with an electric fireplace, and is the perfect nature-lovers retreat on the first floor. Tons of plants and climbing vines keep the patio private and a hidden gem. All of the plants are included in the purchase price. The condo also includes 2 parking spots and a bodega/storage unit in the building’s underground garage.

Situated directly across from the beautiful Tomebamba River and its great walking paths and natural surroundings, downtown Cuenca is only a 15 -minute walk, much of which is on this scenic path. And Supermaxi — Cuenca’s largest supermarket — and many great restaurants are just minutes away.

Condominio Terrassa is a highly desirable building featuring 24/7 security, and a welcoming lobby with a guard who is always on the scene to meet and announce all guests.


Building management is exceptional, with a maintenance man living on the premises and a building administrator who is available five days a week.

The building also has underground parking, a generator that powers the entire building in case of a power outage, a shared entertainment and meeting room off the lobby, and the piece de resistance … a huge shared terrace on the seventh floor. This enormous terrace has distinct, private seating areas, spectacular panoramic views, and a pergola for dining and entertaining. A smaller shared terrace is also available to reserve for special events.

The unfurnished unit is located off the opulent lobby and has ease of access due to its location on the first floor. It is also an ideal investment for an Airbnb-type rental (no stairs to climb with heavy suitcases), due to its location, security, views, and amenities. The apartment has an open-plan living and dining area with an electric fireplace. The living space leads out to the greens-filled patio. The kitchen is located off the dining room and appliances included in the sale are the oven, gas stove with range hood, refrigerator, washer and dryer, and ceiling fans — which are found in all of the main living areas including the bedrooms.

The master is en-suite and there is a second bathroom shared by the guest rooms and used as a social bath. One of the three bedrooms is currently being used as an office and has handy built-ins for storage. The living/dining area also is equipped with wooden shelving to showcase your mementos and treasures.

The monthly HOA is approximately $109 including maintenance of the complex’s many outdoor gardens and terraces, plus 24/7 security, cleaning, and administration, among many other amenities.

The condo is wired for cable TV and the Internet.

The terrace has outdoor illumination, a covered pergola, a garden shed, a privacy wall, and an electric fence w/ remote control. As such it is secure and safe and a delight to relax and entertain in.

The asking price for this ground-floor Cuenca condo in a luxury riverside building with a huge patio is $220,000.
