In an elevated and unobstructed location, around 20 feet above the access road to Club del Lago, an open and very green residential complex on the Laguna del Sauce near Punta Ballena, and 16 feet above the complex’s golf course that directly borders on the back yard of this property, which of course has its own access, this modern house was built with drywall construction in 2013.
A winding driveway leads through the rolling, picturesque grounds up to the house, located on the highest point of the property, so that the east and west facing terraces offer a beautiful sweeping view of the grounds and golf course.
With a total of 193 m2 of living space, the house has a garage with enough space to also store gardening equipment, tools and a washing machine on the basement level, while the main floor offers a large living room with a beautiful natural stone fireplace and two floor-to-ceiling thirteen-feet-wide sliding glass doors that open onto the back terrace, the yard and the golf course, a separate dining room, which also has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors leading to the front terrace, an open-plan adjoining kitchen connected to the living room by a breakfast bar and to the dining room by a serving hatch, three bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet, another full bathroom and a guest toilet.
The staircase leading to the garage, which is centrally located between the entrance area, the living room, the dining room and the kitchen, separates the different rooms and creates a pleasant sense of cozy nooks and crannies without taking away the feeling of openness.
Both terraces are covered. On the wooden deck terrace overlooking the golf course there is a “parrillero” or built-in outdoor barbecue.
With its large windows, the house is designed so that every part of it has a view of the green surroundings.
All of the windows are double-glazed and have high-quality dark aluminum frames. The roof is sealed with two cross layers of membrane that guarantee permanently dry rooms.
Room temperatures are kept pleasant all year round by the above mentioned large fireplace in the living room, a centrally located and highly efficient wood-stove, and two air conditioning units.
The Club del Lago offers high recreational value. In addition to the 18-hole golf course, the nearby Clubhotel offers tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a spa. The beautiful beaches of the Bay of Portezuelo and the Laguna del Sauce are just slightly over a half mile away, as are the nearest shops and restaurants. Punta del Este and Maldonado, with their comprehensive infrastructure, are just a half-hour drive away.
