Property description

Magnificent country house close to all in Punta del Este but secluded from all too. All you hear are birds signing, all you see is wildlife and all you breathe is a fresh scent of the countryside. Once the main house for a large family of the farm owners. Now fully equipped to be a year round retreat! Cozy, spacious, extremely private (no neighbors in sight!), with pool, magnificent view of the lake 'Laguna del Diario', surrounded by pastures, horses, birds (teru-teru, Chaja, venteveo, swans, horneros), foxes, wild hares, etc.

El Angel at Granja Henderson: El Angel is the largest of the five available at 'Granja Henderson', an 111 acre farm in the heart of Punta del Este. It is the main house and sits on a 2.5 acre lot.

Every guest staying at Granja Henderson has complementary access to all the vegetables that are grown on site at the organic vegetable garden!

Wildlife is abundant here. It is amazing to be so close to Punta and be able to enjoy mother nature at its fullest without the noises, people, traffic, pollution associated with city life.

Here is a list of some wildlife that surrounds the Granja Henderson:
lots of birds (Chaja, tero teru, hornero, swans, benteveo, pirincho, picaflor, cotorra, golondrina, halconcito, gorrion, cuervillo, sabia, ratonera, picabuey, garza, calandria, carancho, carpintero, cisne, cuervo, viudita, paloma, tordo, zorzal, chimango, chingolo, churrinche, murcielago, picapalo, golondrinas, tijereta, gallineta),
Zorro, nutria, mulita, aperia, huron, liebre, zorillo, comadreja, guazu, aperea.

History: This was my mother's patch. Her childhood farm. Her parents acquired it in 1942. The place she grew up on. Where her whole family spent their holidays and weekends. Second home and until recently first one too. Originally a chicken farm, later a dairy, then a Quarter Horse breeding facility. Now, rental of cottages.

A little about the lake. Laguna del Diario is called thus because the horses that were used a great deal or on a daily basis for the garrison (colonial times) were allowed loose on the fields around the lake. The Sierra de la Ballena was hostile and they didn't climb up over it. So the daily horses were to be fetched from there. This is the translation for Diario. A diario means on a daily basis. All places in the countryside in Uruguay that are a Dead End are named Rincón. Thus the area where my father's farm was, was called Rincón del Diario. It is in disuse now, as another road has been built to access the area.

History - El Cisne: ''El Cisne'' was the first cottage built on the farm; 1943. The name came from the swans found on Laguna del Diario, in droves, lots of black necked swans swimming placidly on the lake. My grandfather lived here with my mother's family on weekends and holidays while he went building the rest of the farm. Being a civil engineer he knew what he was doing... and being extra-thorough of character he built with a sturdiness that people nowadays, when we recycle some building shake their heads in disbelief!

The pergola under which many outside lunches are enjoyed in the summer, with exuberant foliage, is purely purple flowers in spring. Quite a sight. Many a barbecue is cooked on the ''parrillero''.
