Overview

VILLA 112
7 BEDROOMS | 14 GUESTS | LAGUNA DEL SAUCE, MALDONADO / PUNTA DEL ESTE

One of the most stunning modern houses in the Punta del Este region, Villa 112 offers luxurious accommodation in a setting of great natural beauty and peace, ideal for those who value their privacy. The house sits on the edge of the unspoiled Laguna del Sauce, on a private 16 acre estate with views over the lagoon and out to the rolling hills of the sierras and the Pan de Azucar mountain. There are seven beautifully appointed suites, including one large Master Suite, which have been furnished with style and exude a feeling of comfort and well-being, from heavy cotton towels to crisp linen sheets. An infinity pool stretches across the garden from the house to the lagoon, shaded by an intense blue pergola inspired by the design of the Mexican architect Luis Barragan.

The size, space and peace afforded by this property make it the ideal holiday hideaway for a large group of family and friends who enjoy socializing, eating and drinking well. The house comes with an excellent young chef (and assistant) who dedicatedly sources the best local produce to make lunches and dinners that will satisfy the most discerning of palates. It's the kind of place where guests find it almost impossible to leave.

An infinity pool stretches across the garden from the house to the lagoon, shaded by an intense blue pergola inspired by the design of the Mexican architect Luis Barragan.

The house offers over 900m2 of living space and accommodation spread over three levels. The first floor level has the large master suite and two of the guest suites. The master suite has views over the lagoon and comes with a walk-in closet and a vast master bathroom of polished cement, with a double shower and a bathtub with panoramic views of the lagoon and surrounding countryside. The suite also has access to a roof terrace. The further two suites are located on the other side of the first floor, which is connected by a walkway bisecting the double height atrium and affording views of the living room and the water.

The front of the house is planted with agapanthus and box hedges and thin, symmetrical canals of water lead to the double height front door, which leads directly in the sitting room, the largest social area in the house. There is ample seating on Brazilian-designed armchairs and deep sofas, striking handmade tables and sideboards and a large fireplace, all presided over by a series of paintings representing the colors of the rainbow by Scottish artist Eric Cruikshank. To one side of the entrance is a striking spiral staircase, caged behind vertical aluminum columns that connect the service area to the first floor.

There are four identical suites on this floor, two of which overlook the pool and lagoon, and two which look onto the garden and parkland that surrounds the house. All of the bedrooms other than the master suite can be set up with one double bed or two twin beds.

One side of the sitting room on this floor is made entirely of glass and offers uninterrupted views over the Laguna del Sauce onto the sierras. Double-size glass doors open onto a terrace above the loggia, which has wood sunbeds, a shaded table and chairs and a Lilly pond running the across the width of the house. On the other side, a white staircase cascades down the side of the house directly to the pool and solarium.

From the sitting room another staircase leads down to the pool level where there is the dining room, kitchens and a TV room with large flat-screen TV. The dining table, a stunning black and white structure designed of pressed goat skins by German Carvajal, seats 14. The kitchens are also on this level, close to – but closed off from – the dining room, and have their own separate entrance. A breakfast table is set up under the loggia, from where steps lead down to the pool, brilliant blue solarium and the lake. To one side of the house on the shore is a small sand beach, which is sometimes used as a fire-pit in the evening, and makes a convivial place for guests to gather as the sunsets and the stars begin to show themselves.

The house is set amid carefully landscaped grounds covering 16 hectares, including Japanese style ponds and a sculptured Ziggurat mound facing the front of the house.

The size, space and peace afforded by this property make it the ideal holiday hideaway for a large group of family and friends who enjoy socializing, eating and drinking well. The house comes with an excellent young chef (and assistant) who dedicatedly sources the best local produce to make lunches and dinners that will satisfy the most discerning of palates. It's the kind of place where guests find it almost impossible to leave.
