Punta del Este: Comfortable modern house in a central but quiet neighbourhood.
This 16,200-square-feet property is located on a quiet side street in the Lugano residential area, just a half mile from the Atlantic coast beach and close to a number of shopping centres, including the Punta Shopping mall, as well as sports facilities (e.g., tennis club, golf club), fine restaurants and excellent private schools. It is the ideal place to enjoy all of the advantages that Punta del Este offers.
From the entrance hall you first enter a very spacious and bright living/dining room with sofas arranged around a fireplace and a large dining table. On one side of this room is a fully equipped roomy kitchen and separate staff quarters, and on the other is another living/dining room open to the gallery on the upper floor. Here there is another fireplace with a glass front, equipped with ducts that provide heating to the bedrooms. A passageway leads to two bedrooms on the ground floor, both with private bath. The master suite, equipped with large closets and a spacious bathroom, opens onto the garden and a separate terrace.
The upper floor is reached by a stairway that leads to an open gallery with a library and office area. There are also two more bedrooms on this floor, both with private bath.
On the basement level there is a four-car garage, as well as a housekeeper’s room with its own bathroom.
The so-called “barbacoa” or grill house, equipped with a typical Uruguayan “parillero” grill and brick oven, can also be used as a guest house, since it is fully equipped with a bathroom and shower.
Outside, thanks to the numerous terraces and balconies, you will always find a comfortable place to sit and relax at any time of day and in any season of the year. The garden with its heated swimming pool and sundeck is sheltered by the layout of the house, which guarantees privacy.
All of the rooms, including the bathrooms, housekeeper’s room and grill house, are equipped with electronically regulated underfloor heating. In addition, air conditioning units with a heating function and the above-mentioned closed fireplace with heating ducts keep room temperatures pleasantly warm all year round. Solar panels on the roof to supply hot water to the bathrooms and pool, double walls, double-glazed insulated windows in every room, telephone, internet and cable TV connections in the living rooms and bedrooms, top quality bathroom fixtures with radio reception in the shower stalls: all of the fittings and equipment are of absolute top quality, something you do not always find even in considerably more expensive houses.
The sales price includes the top-quality and tasteful furnishings.
