In the picturesque, gently rolling landscape of Pueblo Edén, near the national highway Route 12, also known as the Ruta Panorámica, lies this beautiful chacra (rural estate), built with great expertise on 5 ha of land.
The main house, with some 160 m2 of living space, was designed for minimal energy consumption and built with plenty of insulation. It encompasses a spacious and bright living/dining room with open kitchen, 2 bedrooms with en suite bath, an office and a guest toilet. Highly pleasant evenings can be spent in front of the luxurious and efficient fireplace.
There is also a guest house roughly 40 m2 in area, with a living room/bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.
The houses are supplied with power through solar panels (around 20 m2 in total). The underfloor heating in both houses is backed up by a wood burner while the water heating is backed up by an electricity-based system.
The ingenious energy-use planning and ideal orientation towards the sun keep the heating costs of this property extremely low.
The third detached building is a 60 m2 double garage with space for a workshop or storage.
Between the three buildings is a romantic, shady patio in Moorish style, with a fountain and herb garden, which offers a cool refreshing spot to relax even on the hottest summer days.
The panoramic double-glazed glass doors of the main house open onto a roughly 250 m2 terrace, partially covered by a pergola, with a grill and brick oven, and the 50 m2 heated saltwater swimming pool.
At a slight distance from the buildings there is a vegetable garden with raised beds covering approximately 900 m2, of which 150 m2 are currently being productively cultivated. There are also poultry coops with around 650 m2 of fenced pens and three artificial ponds, which could be used for fish farming. As a result, this chacra offers the ideal conditions for self-sufficiency.
Water is supplied by a private well with a 4,000-litre tank. The wastewater is channelled to the property’s own water treatment system.
