10 acres chacra with modern house in beautiful natural setting on Ruta 12 (Ruta Panorámica, Pueblo Edén)
By virtue of its location, size, facilities and good transportation connections, this beautiful chacra (rural estate) offers the ideal conditions for self-sustainability. Various citrus and other fruit trees have already been planted, and an ecological pollutant-free vegetable garden and greenhouse (with pesticide-free certification) have been set up. Irrigation of the plantation and garden are carried out with an automatic irrigation system adjusted to demand by means of rainfall measurement. A large shed provides plenty of space for machinery, tools, equipment and firewood storage. There are various corrals for small livestock raising.
The house was just built in 2016, designed for low energy consumption and using a dry construction method. It is very well insulated and all the windows are double-glazed. The interior architecture, with a harmonious interplay of industrial design (exposed metal beams and polished concrete floors) and warm natural wood elements (wall paneling, floors and doors), along with the high-quality furnishings, follow a modern, linear style.
The house comprises a large open-plan living/dining room with an integrated, high-quality and functionally equipped kitchen with work island, a spacious master suite with walk-in closet and en suite bathroom, a second bedroom and another bathroom. The kitchen opens onto the double garage and utility area with its own small bathroom. This part of the house is built with the same quality standards as the living area and could therefore, if desired, be transformed into a third bedroom, office or studio.
Heating and air-conditioning are provided by a central, very efficient woodstove and split air-conditioning units. A 200-feet-deep well on the property and two 1,100-liter water tanks supply drinking water. Solar panels have been installed for water heating.
Transportation connections are excellent. There are a variety of shops, schools and medical services in San Carlos, just 15 mi away. The coast is a 30-minute drive away, Punta del Este can be reached in 45 minutes, and Carrasco International Airport in Montevideo in 90 minutes.
Rooms: Living/dining room with American-style integrated kitchen, 2 bedrooms (1 with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet), 2 bathrooms, pantry, laundry room or hobby room with half-bath
