Modern architect-designed house with breathtaking view of surrounding countryside
Built from the blueprints of a well-known modernist architect, this house blends harmoniously with its natural surroundings thanks to the use of materials like concrete, natural stone and lapacho wood.
The property is located in a exposed spot in a well-established gated community, just ten minutes from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, in a gorgeous rural setting. It offers an unobstructed view of the surrounding nature reserve and breathtaking sunsets. Its location and large natural boulders give the property a special, authentic and unique charm.
The house was completed in 2013 and offers all of the comforts for year-round use, as well as a very special, high-quality ambience.
The house’s open architectural design, with a spacious living room with sunken sitting area and fireplace, a large inviting dining area, integrated American-style kitchen with breakfast bar, and large ceiling-high windows, create a bright, welcoming atmosphere.
There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor, while the master bedroom with private bath is upstairs. All of the bedrooms are equipped with high-quality lapacho wood wardrobes.
Next to the kitchen is a laundry room with a 9 kg ARISTON brand washing machine and 8 kg dryer.
All of the windows are equipped with top-quality aluminium profiles, double glazing and mosquito nets. The house is heated by energy-efficient gas-powered underfloor heating and split air-conditioning units in all the rooms. A FILSA water treatment system with BlueBox and UV filters and osmosis filtration technology in the kitchen ensures the highest quality drinking water. Lighting is provided by a central IKATU lighting control system and appropriate outdoor lights. All of the interior and exterior doors and sliding shutters are made of solid, durable lapacho wood. The bathrooms are equipped with local granite counters, HANSGROHE faucets and FERRUM Marina ceramic fixtures.
The modern kitchen fittings, imported from the United States, include VIKING stainless steel appliances, a two-door fridge with freezer, double oven, gas stove, wine cooler, and high-end gourmet kitchen cabinets specially manufactured by the JOHNSON company.
With the exception of a few items, the entire equipment and installations, as well as a KEF audiovisual system with indoor and outdoor surround sound speakers, DENON receiver and 55-inch flat screen TV, are all included in the sale price.
On the 1.3 acres property, in addition to the main house, there is a separate garden house with double carport, which is currently used partly as a storage area and partly as a studio. Part of this garden house could be converted into an additional guest room, if desired. The property is fully fenced, so it is ideal for animals.
The gated community of course offers common facilities with various amenities such as a clubhouse with a large pool, tennis court, organic garden, children’s playground and 24-hour security. In addition, different activities are offered such as horseback riding and canoeing on the Maldonado River.
Although the property is in a quiet rural location, the Atlantic beaches, restaurants and shops, as well as an 18-hole golf course, are all just a ten-minute drive away. The cosmopolitan beach resort of Punta del Este with its comprehensive infrastructure is only 12 mi away.
