They will be selling the property which is 28 acres—around ten hectares—and includes the olive grove and three buildings. They are ready to sell the land and property with all the vehicles, household and farming contents, or separately.
The house is not particularly large—two bedrooms and one bathroom—however, it has a large very sunny kitchen. This house looks Uruguayan, but was built to meet US/UK standards.
What does this mean? That the outer walls are double with a cavity to prevent damp, that there is “passive solar” heating thanks to clever design-orientation using the sun to keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer, and over 100 electrical outlets throughout the house (certainly not the norm here). Those foreigners who have lived in Uruguay will know what I’m talking about.
There’s a second building with a barbecue, a second bathroom and a utility room.
Bill and Pat have never harvested the olives (they did retire to Uruguay after all, I get it) but they have maintained the trees. A well-constructed barn houses a tractor with just 500 miles on the clock (and AC!), a bush hog and an orchard sprayer. Plus Bill’s trusty 1997 Toyota 4x4.
