Magnificent Property in Patagonia
This gem of a property is located 25 kilometers from Esquel city and 45 kilometers from Esquel Airport, nestled amid the natural beauty of Patagonia. Spanning 2,444 hectares, or approximately 6,040 acres, this rare and incredibly rich estate includes a lakeside main house and separate guest house complemented by a marina, three caretaker’s cabins, and a chapel.
Breathtakingly beautiful, the land comprises a number of remarkable natural features. Perhaps most stunning is the 100-hectare, or 247-acre, lake stocked with a healthy population of rainbow trout. This is a superb venue for fishing, swimming, or boating, and its ecological integrity is managed by specialists from Esquel. Also notable in scope and beauty is the 1,360-hectare, or roughly 3,361-acre, expanse of Lenga-tree forest. This natural paradise is cared for under a Multiple Management Plan by the Forest Administration and the property owners. The plan spans 35 years and consists of silvicultural development tasks with the aim of protecting and improving the quality of the native forest.
The handsome primary home, positioned alongside the placid lake waters, takes in spectacular views across the lake, fields, forest, and nearby towering mountain peaks. The house encompasses 850 square meters, or nearly 9,150 square feet, and is supported by an impressive number of technological amenities. In-floor radiant heat is supplied by two engine rooms containing four heaters, and an indoor swimming pool provides recreational options regardless of the season. Five discrete audio systems, two satellite television connections, and wireless satellite Internet capability ensure diverse entertainment possibilities.
The main guest house has been updated with solar panels that power the lights and water pump and is heated by stoves. Additional power is produced by a gas-run generator. This quiet getaway also features satellite television, audio systems, and a full kitchen. The original caretaker’s cabin is a rustic abode heated by firewood but also including a gas-powered cooker and refrigerator and a satellite television connection. Two newer caretaker’s houses, one currently under construction, retain many of the traits of the original but offer more room. At the lakeshore, the marina complex includes a bathroom, water-pumping systems, and a special breakwater over which the owner can anchor a floating dock in the warmer months. The charming San Francisco de Lago Bueno chapel has in-floor radiant heat and modern halogen lighting.
