Just over an hour’s drive from Montevideo, half an hour from the coast and only 15 minutes from the nearest town, this 20 acres chacra (rural estate) lies at the foot of the mystical Sierra de las Ánimas, framed by the foothills of the Minas and Pan de Azúcar mountains, surrounded by stunning scenery.
The house was built by the current owner for his own use in 2013, with a great deal of attention to detail and enthusiasm, following the principles of Feng Shui. The special location and geobiological research were decisive in planning the construction.
The orientation of the house was determined in accordance with the three most striking features in the surrounding landscape: the view to the northeast overlooks a pond and a stream that runs along the property line, the view to the southwest encompasses the Sierra de las Ánimas, and the view to the southeast takes in Pan de Azúcar. For this reason, the property is divided into three separate modules.
First module: The main house with an open-plan living/dining room, integrated kitchen, pantry and storage room, bedroom with private bathroom and terrace, and guest bathroom, on a total floor space of 850 square feet
Second module: A 205 square feet building with a 2 guest rooms and a bathroom
Third module: A barbecue area and a steam bath
The three modules are connected by a central covered terrace measuring 463 square feet. Near the entrance, to the side of the terrace, an outdoor staircase leads to the roof of the guest house, where you can take in a breathtaking panoramic view.
The quality of the construction and equipment are above average. The entire property is in excellent condition.
The selling price includes furnishings, except for a few personal keepsakes, as well as a small aloe vera plantation.
Rooms: Living/dining room, kitchen, bedroom with private bathroom, guest bathroom, pantry; 2 guest rooms with bathroom; steam bath
