32,000 sqft property with country-style house located in San Rafael, Punta del Este.
This house, built by the famous Argentine architect Arturo J. Dubourg (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arturo_Dubourg) is located in the centre of San Rafael, on the Atlantic coast side of Punta del Este. It was completely renovated and expanded in 2006, conserving its historical and rustic character and combining it with high-quality modern elements to create a striking contrast among the different spaces.
The bright, spacious living room with a fireplace is at the same time the reception area and the heart of the house. Moving on you come to the dining room, another living room, and a large, fully equipped kitchen with an island that opens onto the garden. Behind the kitchen there is a recreation room and service quarters with their own bathroom. This part of the house, which also opens onto the garden, could be converted into a separate two-bedroom flat, if desired.
The four bedrooms, three with private bath, an additional bathroom and a guest toilet are located in a separate wing. The spacious master suite encompasses, in addition to an en suite bathroom, a dressing room and an office or studio, with a door to the terrace in the back garden.
Various fireplaces distributed throughout the main house and electric underfloor heating keep room temperatures pleasantly warm in the coldest months of the year.
The house is surrounded by well-tended, park-like grounds, with natural stone walkways and beautiful trees. In the back garden there is a heated swimming pool and a “barbacoa” or grill house, comprising a large social area equipped with the typical Uruguayan grill known as a “parrillero” and a guest toilet.
Above the garage there is a flat for household staff with two bedrooms and a bathroom. This section has not been renovated.
The house is in excellent condition and ready for immediate occupancy. The sales price includes furnishings.
The residential area of San Rafael is very popular due to its location near the Atlantic coast beaches. Because of its proximity to various shopping centres, good bilingual (Spanish/English) schools and different sports and recreational facilities, it is also ideal for families.
Rooms: Two living rooms, dining room, recreation room, four bedrooms (three with private bath), four bathrooms in total, guest toilet, service quarters with own bathroom, separate two-bedroom flat for staff
