Furnished Home in Peaceful Seaside Village
Was $130,000 Now $99,000 USD

We must return to Australia for family reasons
and are selling our home of nine years.

There are two houses on the same block, brick construction, northerly aspect, large windows, quality finishes and we are selling our home furnished. We are a short stroll from the beach.

Organic garden, fully fenced and beautifully landscaped for easy maintenance with rolling lawns, fruit trees, fruiting vines and perennial herbs. The climate is mild with warm summers and cool winters, no snow.

The principle dwelling has two floors, three bedrooms, two bathrooms (inc. ensuite), open plan kitchen/dining room, large lounge, office, internal laundry with Electrolux washing machine, plenty of storage, a brand new gas stove/oven in the kitchen, a Fisher and Paykel fridge - freezer, and a large cast iron stove for cost efficient heating in winter.

The second dwelling is
an artist's studio/guesthouse with a bathroom, an undercover entertainment area with sink and running water and traditional Uruguayan parrilla style barbecue.

The property is high set, does not flood and the houses have gutters. Both dwellings have large windows facing north. They are comfortable and warm in the winter, cool and breezy in the summer.

 Our neighbourhood, known as Puimayen, is quiet with mostly foot traffic passing by the house as people walk to the beach or to the general store in the plaza. There is an excellent primary school nearby and two high schools in the vicinity to choose from, both serviced by direct buses. We have a high speed broadband internet connection.

The closest city is Chuy/Chui which is on the frontier with Brazil, about 15kms away. Every necessity can be found there, including excellent reasonably priced medical and dental clinics.

One of the benefits of this locale is the extremely cheap cost of living, about a third of the cost of the interior of Uruguay. On the Brazilian side of the main street of Chuy/Chui you have access to cheap supermarkets with all the tropical fruit and Brazilian delicacies and the convenience of Uruguay's famous cheese, wine and meats on this side of the street. Chuy is also renowned for the Duty Free shops that line the main street, all goods from Swiss chocolate to electronics are available tax free to anyone with foreign documents.

Just south of us is the Santa Teresa National Park (Parque Santa Teresa) which has magnificent beaches, botanical gardens and campgrounds along with a restored Spanish Fortaleza which is now a museum.

Please note that we are departing Uruguay at the end of October 2017.

If you would like to chat with us and have a tour of the house via Skype or in person please contact us.
