Large house with 16,000 sqft in Cantegril, Punta del Este.
This very special property in Punta del Este was built in 1945 by renowned Argentine writer Adolfo Bioy Casares (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolfo_Bioy_Casares).
The house has received permanent care and regular maintenance, and is therefore in good overall condition. A few years ago the bathrooms were completely renovated, but special emphasis was placed on preserving their original style.
In addition to the large living room with an open gallery, the house encompasses a separate dining room, adjoining kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large household staff accommodation area with two bedrooms and a separate bathroom.
The staff accommodations could also be used as guest rooms, if desired.
The property is bordered by walls and thick hedges to create privacy.
It is centrally located in the Cantegril residential area. A variety of shops, several private schools, sports and recreation centres and other infrastructure, such as medical care, can all be reached within a few minutes. The Punta del Este peninsula is 2.5 mi away and the nearest beach just one mile away.
Rooms: Living room, dining room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, upstairs gallery, staff accommodation area with 2 bedrooms and private bathroom
