Record sales with 80% of our project sold in just 2 weeks
Casas del Nogal, scheduled for completion in December 2014, seems to have hit the mark. Located on the banks of the River Tomebamba with an entrance on the famed Calle Larga in the historic center of Cuenca, this modern project seems to tick all the boxes. We are pleased to announce that more than 80% of the project has sold in just two weeks.
Casas del Nogal is the most recent development created by ISAM, of which Adriana Carrasco and Juan Heredia of Cuenca Properties are founding partners. Designed by architect Carlos Espinoza from Surreal Estudio the project has respected the original trees found on the property which connects Calle Larga with the river, including an old walnut tree (nogal in Spanish): hence the name.
Casas del Nogal maintains the hallmark aesthetics of all the projects created by ISAM: contemporary design, harmonious integration of old and new, ample use of natural light, creation of communal terraces and patios, reuse of original materials found on site, traditional materials with personalised design and a respect for the original constructions found on the property.
This particular project makes the most of the incredible views of the surrounding city and the river, and is located just a couple of blocks from Parque Calderón in the center of Cuenca old town.
Cuenca city center was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999 due to its impressive and well preserved colonial architecture and has since attracted residents from across the globe. It is however increasingly difficult to find attractive, comfortable, tasteful and modern properties to rent or buy in the historic center and residents are finding themselves forced to invest in property on the outskirts.
At ISAM we’re working hard to increase the supply of superior property in the historic center in order to attract more people to live there. Founded in 2009, ISAM is the first property developer in Cuenca to focus exclusively on projects that rehabilitate run-down buildings in the area to convert them into private housing projects made up of modern apartments and lofts.
