Built in 2010 on the remains of buildings dating back to 1908, this property is surrounded by fields, pastures and small forests, in the beautiful wide coastal landscape near La Paloma, just 6 miles from Rocha, the capital of the department of the same name, and 12 miles from the Atlantic coast.
In the reconstruction, the traditional Uruguayan architectural features of the original buildings were preserved, such as the U-shaped layout of the main house, the north-facing orientation towards the sun, and the classic colonial style.
The approximately 5,400 square feet of living/usable space encompass a spacious living/dining room with a fireplace, a large kitchen with enough room for a dining table, four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a grill house, and a staff house adjacent to the main house with a shed, living room with kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom.
There is also an 36-feet by 16-feet swimming pool in front of the house.
Outbuildings for agricultural use include a shed for farming machinery and equipment, a large winter vegetable garden, pens for chickens and pigs and horse stables. There are various installations for cattle farming and 10 fenced pastures, each with its own pond.
This is a working ranch currently in operation and it is therefore being sold with all of the livestock as well as the full inventory of the house, the fleet of vehicles (including, among others, a tractor and a Renault Duster 4×4) and all of the machinery and equipment.
After purchase, it would be possible to continue with the same business operations or adapt the property’s use in accordance with your own ideas and plans.
Considering its proximity to the coast, it could also be used for tourism purposes.
The farmwork is currently carried out by a gaucho employed by the current owner, whose work performance is completely satisfactory. It would certainly be recommendable to hire this experienced employee if you wish to continue with the current operations. It would also be possible to lease the land to him on a long-term basis so that he can carry on with the cattle raising himself.
