At only 9mi from the coast of Punta Ballena, this beautiful estate is located a little above the panoramic Route 12 in an elevated and overlooking position.

Thanks to the gentle slope, every single spot of the property permits an extraordinary and free view over the lagoon „Laguna del Sauce“ and the hilly landscape of Maldonado with it´s peaks „Pan de Azúcar“ and the „Sierra de las Ánimas“.

Such a magnificent hillside lot very close to the coast is naturally an exception in a rather flat country like Uruguay. Hence the location of this chacra (rural estate) is really something special.

The traditionally and solidly built two-storey house from 2011 offers on a net living surface of 1,765sqft (plus 1,378sqft of porch area) an entrance lounge, an ample living/dining room with a closed fireplace and colonial style wooden ceilings with exposed beams, an openly integrated, cottage style kitchen with counter towards the dining area, a childrens room or possible multipurpose room, and a guest toilet. On the upper floor, there are two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, the mastersuite’s one openly integrated, and another small multipurpose room which can be accessed separately via the 344sqft–rooftop terrace and could well be used as a sauna, for example.

The living/dining room with its huge window surfaces and sliding patio doors, the roofed porch stretching in front of it and the 39ft-long swimming pool all face west, aligned towards the afternoon and evening sun. On the south side of the house and, appropriately, just outside the kitchen, there is a homely and shady barbecue place.

A little offside the main building there is a second house of 26m2 with garage or workshop and staff apartment.

The well-kept and park like exterior areas exhibit many different fruit, perennial and leafy trees, bushes and palm trees. 4 acres are being used for an olive plantation with more or less 750 trees. Close to the house there also is a wild and romantic natural stone garden with cactuses and aloe plants. A very special mention goes to the striking access way bordered with cypress trees and oleander bushes.

The whole estate is in very good conditions. The house has been thoroughly renovated and rebuilt in 2021 and 2022. The interiors and fixtures are high quality (double glazed windows, efficient heating system, 7.5kWh photovoltaic system with off-peak storage battery).

This property is ideal for all those who seek a sophisticated, peaceful country life without renouncing to the benefits of the nearby coast of Punta del Este and Maldonado with their many shopping facilities, private schools and universities, medical services, culture and sports activities.

The Punta Ballena/Portezuelo bay with its beautiful beaches is only 9mi away, and at 10 and 13mi respectively there are Maldonado and the adjacent Punta del Este.

Rooms: living/dining room with integrated kitchen, lounge, 2 bedrooms en suite, 2 bathrooms, childrens room, guest toilet
