PUEBLO GARZÓN, URUGUAY | LAND: 5 Hectares | US$ 150,000
A 5 hectare plot with a ruined country house, suitable for restoration, that was formally used as a police post.
The property is located 9km from Pueblo Garzon in an elevated position with views along the old (dirt) road that leads to Rocha. The old rail tracks border the property to the rear.

For much of the 20th century, Garzón was a thriving way station linking some of Uruguay’s largest cattle ranches, boasting a mill and a rail connection to Maldonado, the region’s commercial centre. Decline set in during the 1960s when the mill went out of business and residents drifted away in search of work. When Uruguay axed its passenger rail service in 1989, Garzón was left as little more than a ghost town. Fast forward to 2010 and the village is experiencing an unlikely renewal as a gastronomic hub and second-home retreat for South America’s summering elite. Garzón’s burgeoning recovery can be attributed almost entirely to Francis Mallmann, a celebrity chef from neighbouring Argentina whose reputation is based as much on his esoteric television shows as on his exquisite – yet extravagantly priced – cooking.
Pueblo Garzón now stands at the centre of a Napa Valley-like development with award winning vineayrds, bodegas, olive groves and exciting restaurants all around. This was recognised in the New York Times’ list of places to visit in 2016, Garzon is at #21 - ‘A new wine region blooms near Celebrated beaches’. Not surprisingly this development and resulting publicity is fuelling interest in real estate in the area which is still very affordable when compared to prices in and around José Ignacio and the coast which is only a short drive from the village.
