This modern single-family detached house in Punta Ballena offers a beautiful view overlooking the wide bay of Portezuelo, thanks to its elevated location. As a result, most parts of the house facing the yard and the water are covered with large windows.
Natural stone walls and floors break with the linear, almost minimalist style of the house, and create a warm, lively atmosphere in the bright rooms characterized by glass and cement surfaces.
To take advantage of the beautiful view, the living/dining room is on the upper floor, as are the kitchen and another living room that could be used as a library, TV room or office. The bright, open living/dining room is visually separated into living and dining areas by a centrally located fireplace. Directly adjacent is the large, fully equipped kitchen. A spacious terrace stretches across the front of the living/dining room facing the yard. There is also a large terrace in front of the second living room.
The four bedrooms, two of them with en suite private bathroom, another bathroom, the housekeeping and staff area and of course the garage are all on the ground floor. All of the bedrooms have access to the yard, and the master bedroom also opens onto the sundeck and pool.
At the back of the downward sloping property, a slight distance away from the house and shaded by trees, there is a large covered barbecue area.
The location is pleasantly quiet, even during the summer months, despite the nearby tourist infrastructure. The gorgeous sandy beach of Portezuelo, just a short walk away, is ideal for swimming or long walks on the beach. Very close by (just 800 feet away) is the Lussich Arboretum, a 475-acres municipal park, with some native trees and others imported from overseas some 100 years ago. This is also a perfect place for long walks.
Daily shopping needs can be met nearby, in the small shopping center of Punta Ballena. Punta del Este and Maldonado, with their comprehensive infrastructure, are roughly a 10 to 15 minute drive away respectively.
Rooms: Living/dining room, additional living room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms (2 en suite), 3 bathrooms, housekeeping and staff area
