If you are seeking the ultimate in luxury, look no further! This is an absolutely breathtaking home, with an incomparable location in perhaps the most exclusive gated community in all of Ecuador.
Located in the prestigious Samborondon area, in the preeiminent community of La Puntilla, at the confluence of the Rio Daule and Babahayo River, this 5,522 square foot, two story beauty is perfect for a sumptuous lifestyle, and upscale entertaining.
Enter into the large foyer of the main level. You will find a spacious living room, game/music room with bar, and den/media room to one side, and a large formal dining room, separate gourmet kitchen, and dinette area to the other side. The living room is serene and comfortable, and a wall of windows with floor-to-ceiling French doors lead out to a roomy covered patio and massive outdoor entertaining space beyond. The game/music room is just off the living room, and features a wet bar with marble countertop, upper cabinets with glass doors, and lower storage plus a refrigerated wine cabinet. There is a door from the game/music room to the lower level's den/media room, with shelves for storing DVD's and room for a huge flat-screen television. Both of these special entertaining rooms boast large windows looking out to the pool and outside entertaining areas.
The formal dining room is large enough to accommodate a table that seats ten people, and a huge picture window affords the room plenty of natural light. This is a roomy and serene space for upscale dinners. Just off this room is the separate black-and-white kitchen and dinette area, for more casual family meals. The dinette area features an L-shaped banquette bench with table and coordinating chairs tucked into a charming space highlighted by an angled window that keeps the area bright and cheery. This kitchen would make even Gordon Ramsay jump for joy. The décor is superb, with white upper and lower cabinets, white subway tile on the walls, and gleaming black countertops, including the kitchen island. The appliances are sleek stainless steel, including two huge French Door refrigerators with drawer feezers.
Near to the main living areas, you find the staircase to the upper level. Here, you find your sumptuous master suite. There is so much room in this master bedroom, and the vaulted ceiling makes it feel even larger. One wall has a custom storage and entertainment system in white, and another wall has large picture windows overlooking the pool and river, with plenty of room for chairs and a bistro-style table to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee each morning. This area expands into an angled niche big enough for a desk and some bookshelves. Opposite this wall is the entrance to the en-suite master bathroom and walk-in closet. The master bathroom has a stylish vanity with double sinks and mirrors, and clever storage underneath utilizing drawers, as well as, baskets of natural materials.
There are three more bedrooms and three more full bathrooms on this upper level, all with the same meticulous attention to detail in design and luxurious appointments. Additionally, you find a sunny studio, which could be yet another bedroom, but works exceptionally well as a creative work space. There is also a comfortable library on this level, with built-in shelves, and another picture window. Everything about this home reveals style and taste.
The interior of this home is spectacular, to say the least, but the piece de resistance of this property is the stunning outdoor area, which is why so many rooms are designed to give a glimpse of this private oasis! Grand French doors lead from the living room out to a covered porch, that serves as an outdoor living space. Room for outdoor sofas, chairs, and tables draw you and your guests outside to enjoy the gentle breezes and gaze upon the sparkling, turquoise two-level pool. There is a broad paved poolside area, perfect for sunbathing during the day, and elegant soirees at night. Surrounded by well-planned landscapes, this area is bordered by the pool on one side, and the pool house on the other, and leads to a charming fountain and gazebo, which seems to sit right on the riverfront! The property's river edge is bordered by glass, so the entire area enjoys unobstructed river views. Opposite the gazebo is an incredible covered outdoor kitchen and bar. While you will find a BBQ grill here, this isn't your mama's backyard BBQ! This is an amazing outdoor kitchen with granite countertops, a built-in wood-fired pizza oven, an island workspace with sink and a bar-level extension. You and your guests can access the bathroom and shower in the pool house area, after a dip in the pool.
Back in the house, while you are enjoying the amazing river views and luxurious surroundings, rest assured that the mundane business of running a household is well in hand. There is a good-sized laundry room off the kitchen, a utility room, maid's quarters, and another bathroom, as well as, a private area off the laundry room for air-drying freshly-laundered clothes and white goods.
This is a first-class property in a world-class city. You don't find this every day, and you won't want to miss this opportunity!
