Just a half mile off the Ruta 12 highway and a half-hour drive from Punta del Este, this stunning property is nestled in the green expanses of the foothills of the Minas mountains.
The main house, with 3,390 sqft of living space, was built in 2015 by the current owner for his own use. As a result, special emphasis was placed on professional construction standards and on the selection of the finest materials. Double walls with excellent insulation, double-glazed PVC windows, high-quality wood species such as lapacho and cedar, gas-powered underfloor heating – the construction is truly outstanding.
Due to unforeseen personal circumstances, the property is now being sold.
The heart of the house is the spacious living/dining room of almost 1,100 sqft, with a two-story-high ceiling and fireplace. The house’s many windows, including large gabled windows on the second floor, create a bright and welcoming atmosphere. The living/dining room leads, on one side, to an office with a large library, a bedroom and a bathroom, and on the other side, to a spacious kitchen, which in turn leads to a utility room and maid’s room with private bathroom. Also from the living room, a staircase leads up to the second floor, where you will find the 409 sqft master suite with walk-in closet and bathroom and a 280 sqft rooftop deck. Above the utility area there is also an attic room that could be used as an additional bedroom.
Stretching across the entrance side of the house is a 344 sqft arched gallery. At the rear, accessible from the living room and the kitchen, there is a spacious deck, partially covered by a pergola, with the classic Uruguayan “parrillero” or outdoor barbecue and a large bread and pizza oven.
In addition to the main house there is a large 2,150 sqft barn with integrated staff living quarters, and some distance away, an older, unrenovated staff house with a living room, bedroom and bathroom.
The land is currently being used as pastureland. For growing your own food and potentially raising livestock, there is a simple greenhouse, a round corral and a large watering pond.
