We Love Our Ranch, but It’s Time to Say Adios

Thirteen years ago my wife and I bought an 80-acre ranch in Carmelo, Uruguay in South America.  

It's out in the country, but only about 60 miles north of the great city of Buenos Aries in neighboring Argentina.

The old stone farmhouse was quaint and traditional (i.e., a little run-down) but we fell in love with it.

Then we replaced the front door.  And then...well, by the time we had finished with construction six years later, we had ourselves a hacienda in the Spanish Mediterranean/Santa Barbara style, with a main house, guest house suites, caretaker's house, and assorted other structures.  We added a few horses, cows, chickens, dogs, cats and presto, our retirement ranch was complete.

It's a great getaway because it's summer down there when it's winter in North America.  The mild climate, safety and stability, and the friendly people all led us to buy in little Uruguay instead of one of its giant but turbulent neighbors: Brazil to the north, or Argentina to the south and west.

Uruguay is the safest country in South America.  Property rights are secure for both citizens and foreigners; and the weather is pretty much the same as southern California, except that the rains are regular and there is plenty of water.

It's a beautiful, peaceful place to relax when you really need to get away from it all, but it's a long commute from California.

My search work, which I love, does not leave us as much time as we would like for the long trip down and back.  It's a much easier trip for someone living on the east coast to connect to Montevideo or Buenos Aries from New York or Miami.

So, we've reluctantly decided it's time to sell.

The links below will take you to a lot of photographs of the house, grounds, and surrounding area which will give you a much better idea of what it's like.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you have questions, or you can call our broker, Patrick Archer.
