In the best area of Carrasco, this elegant and spacious classic-style residence stands in a class of its own and tradition. It was built in 1952 by the architects De los Campos, Puentes, and Tournier as a family residence, and then later was used as a diplomatic residence over two decades. The 600 m2 mansion is developed over three levels on a plot of 1,835 m2. The distinguished and classic façade welcomes us through a portico framed by four elegant double-height columns and alludes to the exclusive interior. From the reception hall, we find ourselves in front of beautifully preserved wooden oak stairs that lead to the upper floors. On the right and left, we find generously sized reception rooms and a dining room. Large windows giving way to natural light, two open fireplaces, wooden oak floors, a prominent library, and a winter garden overlooking the swimming pool create an ambiance of “grandezza”. The large kitchen, pantry, storage room, utility room, social bathroom, and service bathroom complete the ground floor. The kitchen and bathrooms need updating. The beautiful and well-grown garden invites spending time contemplating and enjoying a lazy afternoon at the pool. The first floor provides 3 spacious rooms, each with original closets or dressing rooms, and 2 bathrooms. The second floor/attic is fully developed, offering 2 bedrooms with their respective terraces and a bathroom. The garage for 2 cars comes with automatic doors. The property is completely fenced. The quality of construction, the level of maintenance, and the functionality of the house are exceptional, as well as the luminosity of all the rooms. The floors are made of stoneware and wood. The house is equipped with central gas heating.
Carrasco is the most luxurious and exclusive neighborhood of Montevideo. It is characterized by its green spaces, for its exceptional tranquility, and lower population density compared to other areas of the city. It is the neighborhood where several embassies and their official residences reside, aside from important offices and companies. Carrasco presents a well-perceived combination of good urban design, characterized by low-rise architecture, and exclusivity. It also has developed an interesting gastronomic offer. Located 30 minutes from downtown Montevideo, 20 minutes from Zonamerica, and 10 minutes from Carrasco International Airport, this neighborhood is strategically well-positioned in the layout of the whole of Montevideo. It is near important service centers, such as the Portones Shopping Mall and the main Street Alfredo Arocena Avenue offers a well-perceived selection of Uruguayan products. Another plus is the excellent offer of international schools. Carrasco is definitely well-prepared for the future.
