Modern ranch home hits the market in the foothills of Uruguay’s Sierra de las Ánimas

A rustic finca

Architect Federico Astigarraga designed this hilltop home in southern Uruguay around its sweeping views of the Sierra de las Ánimas mountain range.

The 1,292 sq ft house was built in 2016 from concrete and steel for the architect’s parents, and is now on the market via Engel & Völkers Carrasco Montevideo for $390,000. Its low-slung form riffs on local architecture, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls putting a contemporary twist on tradition.

Stone cladding has been sourced from the house’s 12.4-acre estate outside of Pueblo Edén – some 25 miles north of coastal resort Punta del Este – while interiors have timber and ceramic tile floors.

A cast-concrete fireplace dominates the living room and heats common spaces, while rooms across the two-bedroom Uruguayan property are crowned by exposed pine beams.

Outside, in addition to a number of wooden decks and stone terraces, there’s a 215 sq ft infinity pool and a traditional asado for barbecues.
