This 15-acres chacra (rural estate) is in a uniquely beautiful location on the north shore of the Laguna del Sauce, a natural protected area. The entire property is clean, well-tended and park-like with paths (0.75 mi in total). Around 3.7 acres of the property sloping down to the shore (30-35 feet above sea level) has native vegetation, mostly Coronilla trees that are up to 150 years old.
On the highest part of the property (115-130 feet above sea level) there is a beautiful thatched barbecue area, a simple staff house, a small storage shed for machinery and tools, and two “tajamares” (ponds). A number of years ago, some 50 palm trees were planted here (of the Butiá Yatay, Washingtonia, Fénix and Pindó varieties).
A 137-feet-deep well supplies four outlets spread throughout the property and the staff house with drinking water, through an underground pipe network that runs on wind power. Electrical power is supplied by an already existing photovoltaic system. Good LTE coverage throughout the property guarantees trouble-free internet connection.
The location is absolutely tranquil. The nearest asphalt road (Ruta 9 of the national highway) is about 2 miles away as the crow flies. At the same time, however, the nearest town, San Carlos, or the coast at Punta Ballena, and therefore all necessary infrastructure, are just a 20-minute drive away.
The property can be reached from the Ruta 9 or Ruta 12 highways partially on public roads and partially on private land with the corresponding rights of way.
