Located in what many Uruguayans say is the "Tuscany" of Uruguay in the convenient department of Maldonado just 100 Km from Montevideo on a four-lane new divided highway and, and 40 minutes inland from the Atlantic Ocean at Punta Ballena from the beach.
The farm is a short drive of about 35 minutes by car on Uruguay Ruta 12 from Punta del Este, a popular resort town with restaurants, hotels, shopping, hospitals, supermarkets, and services. Punta del Este has a very nice private airport that can handle almost all larger private jets. And importantly easily accessible on three of its four sides by paved road yet totally private.
The total acreage is 212 hectares or 524 acres. The land consists of several padrones, all contiguous, surrounded on three of its four sides by a beautiful small river which transverses the land and is crossed with a new professionally designed, engineered, and architecturally built bridge which makes it possible for easy access to the whole farm not requiring travel on the road outside of the farm to move animals and equipment within the whole property.
The current owner has not developed it for row cropping and high agricultural yields. Instead, he has maintained quality pastures and soil fertility for the maintenance of healthy animals. This has resulted in a nice property that has been free of chemical contamination for 8 years.
Currently, the ranch is easily supporting 114 animals made up of Herford mama cows, heifers, 8 horses and pets of six llamas, 8 burrows, and two Jersey milk cows and their AI calves. These milk cows provide high-quality A2 milk which is much more healthy and non-allergenic. There has never been an approach to push the envelope on commercial production but more of a focus on lifestyle, quality healthy animals, and enjoyment. This is not to say that it is not a working ranch because it maintains upwards of over two hundred stock animals, over 40 others including about 40 laying hens, llamas, borrows, but fortunately they are all perfectly maintained by the amazingly talented husband and wife "caseros" who have lived there for over seven years and have been directly involved with the owners for 7.5 years. The husband has been directly involved with the many improvements over the last several years such a building several buildings, a "carniceria", storage buildings, working pens, an amazing large "galpone", all new fencing for the whole property, drilling new wells, planting fertilizing and maintaining all the advanced modern equipment not more than two years old.
The new modern beautiful brick 3,500-3,700 plus sq ft home is only 10-12 years old and has been exquisitely maintained with four bedrooms, 3.5 full baths, and a guest powder room. The living room boasts a large and functional wood-burning fireplace with an unusually large insert imported from Spain that heats most of the house. In addition to the large open living and dining room with vaulted timber ceiling as is most of the house. There is an amazing outside patio "parilla" with custom new and a separate special pizza baking oven.
All of the buildings are new and in excellent like-new condition and other than the owner’s home and "caseros" home have all be built but the present owners recently. The barn or "galpone" with an interior of 300 square meters is all finished with concrete, loft for storage, electric doors, and a two-car garage with electrically remote operated car doors on one end. It is a perfect facility for farm usage, fiestas, storage, gatherings, farm equipment, or whatever. In addition to its conventional spaces, the building boasts a kitchen, new tiled bath with cabinets, a bidet, and a full-sized shower.
