Starting bid: $860,000.00
Para español, vea abajo.
The price has been SLASHED to more than half of the original listing price! The owner must sell, and the auction with a starting price of $860k is much lower than the renovations that were put into this beautiful mansion. Get in on a ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!!
This colonial mansion is very centrally located in the historic center and tourist district, and it is ideal to be made into a boutique hotel since it was recently renovated specifically with that goal in mind. Unfortunately, the owner never made it into a functioning hotel even though it is fully equipped, and now it HAS TO BE SOLD IMMEDIATELY DUE TO SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES. This unique gem of a property is a distressed sale and forced to be AUCTIONED OFF by December 14, 2019
This 2-story mansion, “Casa Monseñor,” is full of history since it was first built around 1850 for the first archbishop of Cuenca. It even has a rooftop chapel with the original altar used by the archbishop. You will see it all come to life in the details, with the brick and stonework, Chanul wood floors, working fountains in the two inner courtyards and the outdoor courtyard/gardens, handcrafted wrought iron fixtures and chandeliers, original wood beams in the ceilings, hand-made sconces for beautiful ambient lighting at night, and remote-control gas fireplaces in all of the guest rooms. The renovations were done to create a very elegant and luxurious experience while still maintaining the aesthetics of a historical colonial mansion. The bathrooms are all updated showing off stylish slate tiles and teak wood finishes, and the appliances are all brand-new and included in the sale.
ASK US FOR THE FEASIBILITY STUDY. We will be happy to provide you with a copy of the independent 3rd-party feasibility study that was recently done and includes a market study specific to Cuenca, revenue and occupancy projections, cost estimations, different ideas for business strategies, hotel administration details, and ROI projections. You will be amazed at how many options you have to take advantage of all of the different spaces. The possibilities are endless!
As a luxury residence, this could be used as a beautiful grandiose home where you can also hold events, dinner parties, concert recitals or more. However, as a boutique hotel, this can be converted into a profitable cashflow business. This mansion currently has 4 fully complete rooms and can easily accommodate up to 6 rooms with minimal modifications. Some of these are very large rooms (e.g. a Presidential Suite), and two of them also already include a kitchenette that could be rented as a mini apartment. For the common areas, there are:
- Two small indoor courtyards with working fountains, bright and cozy, but protected from the rain
- A walled-in outdoor courtyard with gardens and a working fountain
- A restaurant space that includes a modern and updated kitchen with imported stainless steel appliances, seating area with a fireplace and a view of the Cathedral domes, providing a unique dining experience for the guests, or to hold a special evening with guest gourmet chefs
- Cocktail and wine bar with seating area that leads out into the outdoor courtyard/gardens
- An open-air rooftop terrace covered with glass providing a gorgeous view of the Cathedral that provides a perfect space for additional events such as wine and painting nights, yoga, or many more options. You will arrive up to the terrace using the original spiral wooden staircase
This mansion is very centrally located, just two blocks from the central plaza of Cuenca, Parque Calderón, where the iconic Cathedral is located in the heart of the historic district, and also it is just two blocks from the river. It already includes a commercial grade water heating system, centrally located gas hookups, and a video intercom system. All of the details have already been thought of, and this property will be perfect for someone that is ready to add the finishing touches and convert this into one of the finest boutique hotels in Cuenca.
