description

Located in a quiet corner of the heart of Pocitos with its leafy trees garden, in a quiet street 15 minutes from downtown Montevideo is the best discovery for people who know of good living. Has 3 entrances, the main one that communicates with the house, another one that goes to the workshop / atelier / library and another entrance for offices depending on the destination. It has 351 sq.m built on a plot of 528 sq.m with clearly Norman  Architecture influence although it could also have something of the style of the Basque houses. It evokes the houses of the 1930s’ by the famous architects Bello & Reborati. Fortunately, the immediate surroundings have not been affected by the frightening medians of the apartment buildings, which allows the house to shine today in the same way it was built. Its roofs in two levels of wood and French tiles Sacoman, crowned by a roof that drops to the four cardinal points. Living room with traditional wood chimney, noble wood doors that face a “bow-window” with its shapes and arches, eaves, loggias, columns, decorated ceramics and coatings of different colors and textures combined with great coherence, enhance the balconies in its main spaces. A warm fully equipped kitchen, low tiled period ceilings and dining room. Atelier on the main floor, reminds us of the refuge of a famous Uruguayan painter, independent entrance to the house with bathroom and kitchenette. The second floor, with cedar wood staircase leads to the bedrooms. A master bedroom with integrated bathroom overlooking the garden and its old trees, three more bedrooms and a bathroom that serves these bedrooms. It is a house that for its warmth, materials, windows everywhere, allow us to dream the best Uruguayan Architecture of that time. Cedar vintage closets. Total has 5 bathrooms. Renovated but retaining the original details. Garage for several cars.
