The House on the River Chimehuin – Junin de los Andes, Argentina
In the Patagonian province of Neuquén, just outside the tranquil village of Junin de los Andes, this superb estate encompasses some 13.5 pristine hectares, or more than 33 acres. The property is graced with 500 meters, or approximately 1,460 feet, of frontage on the River Chimehuin, renowned worldwide for its world-class fly fishing. The river is host to thriving populations of rainbow and brown trout.
The Property: The sprawling acreage takes in breathtaking views of scenic rolling hills, as well as the distant snow-capped Andes. Flat grassy lawns surround the main house, with custom lighting and ample patio space. In addition to its river frontage, the property is also host to an artificial lake that fronts the residence, adding to the peaceful atmosphere.
The Residence: Originally built for a passionate fisherman, the home was created as the ultimate sporting lodge, with an aesthetic that perfectly complements its gorgeous natural surroundings. Noted architect Alejandro Bustillo, who throughout his career was responsible for more than 250 important projects across Argentina, designed the structure to capture massive vistas of the landscape embracing the property. The large living room is the focal point of the layout, offering river views, a fireplace, and a billiards table. A dining room, spa area with a swimming pool, full kitchen, laundry room, and two en suite bedrooms complete the ground floor. One of these bedrooms has its own dressing room. Upstairs, the grand master suite has a private living room with a fireplace, a dressing room, and a lavish bath. Two more bedrooms are also found on this level, each with its own bathroom; one has four beds, while the other has a double bed.
Outbuildings and Amenities: The grounds encompass a number of additional buildings, including a housekeeper’s cabin, two roofed garages, and a two-bedroom guest house. This charming getaway also contains a living room and two full bathrooms. A second guest house currently under construction will span about 120 square meters, or 1,292 square feet, with three en suite bedrooms. A tennis court and a heated outdoor pool provide additional recreational options.
The Area: Though just 11 kilometers from the village, the estate enjoys ideal privacy and seclusion. Four airports are within a 200-kilometer radius, making this a perfect vacation getaway or second home. Lanín National Park—known for its deep forests, diverse wildlife, and famous volcano—is just 16 kilometers away.
