This colonial-style estancia in La Pataia by Punta del Este is a great place to live in the countryside being just about 15 minutes away from Punta del Este and the pristine beaches. It would be an ideal property to reform and turn into a Boutique Bed & Breakfast place for guests to enjoy nature and horseback riding being close to different beach areas in and around Punta del Este and Punta Ballena. The property is located in a quiet rural setting with very good access roads. The original main house or “Helmet” was built in the late 19th century. Over time, the estate has been expanded and renovated several times keeping the rustic yet noble colonial style. It comprises several living rooms and lounges, as well as a total of 8 bedrooms (some en-suite) distributed among several buildings, modern bathrooms, a large social and recreational area with built-in BBQ, a large fully equipped kitchen with a dining room, public services, Staff service room, different guest apartments, fireplaces, and two wood stoves. All rooms are equipped with heating and air conditioning. Additionally, there are storage sheds for machinery and tools, seven stables for horses that could be converted into additional rooms, a garden with a natural park, stone tiled terraces and magnificent trees and palm trees, as well as an incredible 9 x 3 m2 lap pool with new pumps, filters and changing rooms. In the 3 ha plot, there is a small stream, a fish pond, and space for small-scale cattle raising. It is a property to enjoy for private use or for commercial exploitation. There is a water well and a building that houses a 20,000 L water purification system. Large terraces in all buildings along with a two-story tower.
