Built in 2010 in traditional Uruguayan country house style, this property is just a 15-minute drive north of José Ignacio, a small, fashionable beach town on the Atlantic coast, surrounded by beautiful scenery.
The solid, one-story house encompasses a 650-square-feet living/dining room, stretching across the entire width of the house, with a fireplace, a small open-plan kitchen connected to the living room by a breakfast bar, two large bedrooms, each with en suite private bathroom, and a guest bathroom. The rustic charm of the house is accentuated throughout all the rooms by the “Porteña style” ceilings with exposed wooden beams and brick as well as classic wooden frame windows with shutters.
A spacious deck stretches across the front of the house, and leads to a covered barbecue area right next to the house.
The well-kept, park-like grounds surrounding the house are planted with a variety of trees, including some beautiful ombú trees, palms and shrubs. In front of the house is a 20 feet by 10 feet pool.
Despite its quiet location, the chacra (rural estate) has very good transportation connections by way of the nearby national highway Ruta No. 9. San Carlos, the closest large town, is just 20 minutes away, and offers good infrastructure with a variety of shops, schools and good medical facilities. In addition, Maldonado and Punta del Este are just a little over half an hour away.
Rooms: Living/dining room, integrated kitchen, 2 en suite bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, guest bathroom
