Property Details – Casa Palmea

The house features massive windows throughout and includes local stone, which frames the exterior as well as the interior floors. Year round the view of the mountains and lake are stunning. The family room with its oversized furniture grouped around a large coffee table and a cozy fire place invites you to sit down and stay awhile. At the other end, is the dining room with an antique replica Patagonian dining table that easily seats ten. The unique “chandelier” light fixture mimics candlelight, for subtle atmosphere.

Opening to the dining room is the spacious well-lit kitchen fully equipped with top of the line appliances, cookware and tableware. The marble topped kitchen island is a gathering place for guests and an informal dining area that seats five. The kitchen’s floor to ceiling windows lead to the back patio Argentine parilla (outdoor grill) and teak furniture. It is the perfect place to enjoy the last of the setting sun with a glass of local wine, while grilling some local Loma (filet mignon).

The house offers a unique arrangement of sleeping areas that can accommodate up to nine people. The west wing has the master suite with a king bed, Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, view of the lake, spacious linga wood closets, glass doors opening to a private side deck and electric blackout shades. Blackout shades are common in Argentina because of their position relative to the South Pole, which makes their summer hours longer than North America.

The east wing has two sleeping areas: one corner bedroom with king (or two twins), an office space with pull out leather queen sleeper sofa. The two sleeping areas share a full bath with tile walk in shower. The convertible office features WiFi, cable, flat screen TV, pocket doors for privacy and sliding glass doors open onto the front deck.

A third guest suite has a queen size sofa sleeper, private bath with walk in shower, sliding glass doors to the back deck, black out drapes and a flat screen TV with cable.

A small bedroom with private entrance from the back of the house has a twin bed and shower.
