981 acres ranch with impressive Andalusian style house
The main house on this ranch was built in 2010 for the owner’s personal use. As a result, special emphasis was placed on quality and equipment. The building materials were all high-quality and some were specially imported. All of the windows are double-glazed. A central air-conditioning system keeps room temperatures pleasant throughout the house. There are also several fireplaces and underfloor heating or radiators in the areas with natural wood flooring. The property is being sold for family-related personal reasons.
All of the rooms are laid out on one level. The heart of the house is the very spacious living room with separate dining room. Next to it is another living room, which can also be used as a library or TV room. The four suites (bedrooms with private bath) are located in the two wings of the house. The spacious master suite is equipped with a large dressing room and a two-room bathroom.
For guests there is a room with its own entrance, a private bathroom and a terrace.
The bedrooms and living rooms, most of which face north, towards the sun, all open onto the garden or terrace.
Near the dining room and kitchen there is an open but completely covered entertaining area with a bar, large grill and brick pizza oven.
The housekeeping and staff area encompasses the large, professionally equipped kitchen, a laundry room with washer and dryer, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.
The land is used for agricultural purposes, which means the property earns income from forestry, crop farming and cattle farming (there are currently 200 head of cattle, with the capacity for up to 300). The average soil quality index (CONEAT) rating of the land is 120.
The agricultural facilities, such as the barn, workshop and machinery storage shed (comprising some 1,080 sqft in all) are located at a distance from the main house. Consequently there is also a staff house (860 sqft) with a living room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The cattle farming installations, including the loading ramp, vaccination station and pen, as well as all the fences, are in prime condition. Various artificial ponds as well as 1,7 miles of riverfront ensure an adequate supply of water all year round. The access road to the ranch and the roads on the property itself are in good condition and can be driven on with any type of vehicle in any type of weather. The ranch can operate completely autonomously. Drinking water is supplied by wells on the property itself and an electric power generator can supply all the electricity needed.
The ranch is easy to reach and centrally located between Montevideo and Punta del Este, just 15 miles from the coast. The closest town with fairly developed infrastructure is just a 15-minute drive away.
