Beachfront home

About a week ago I showed some photos looking up and down the beach in front of our condo on Langosta beach.  I mentioned that although it looked like the beach was undeveloped and lined only by trees, there are houses set back behind the trees on the beach.  Here is a peek through the trees at one of the beach front houses.

This house has obviously been designed to maximize the stunning views of the beach and ocean.  And why not?  I took this photo in the late afternoon, and all of that glass faces the west, afternoon sun.  That explains why most of the white window shades are closed.  

The sign on the back wall advertises to people walking along the beach that the house is for sale.  Maybe one of the readers of this blog will decide to buy it?  Information and photos of the house can be found at this link to the real estate agency. It is listed for $1.8 million USD. The house and guest houses have 10,233 sq. ft (951 sq. meters). The main house has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. There are 3 guest quarters, 2 with kitchens, an infinity edge pool over looking the ocean, and an exercise room at the lower level closest to the beach. The window shades are electric and retract into the ceiling.

Maybe the house is for sale because the expense of glass cleaner went up too much.   

How much do you think a house like this would cost right on the beach in California, Hawaii, Florida, or a location near you?  My guess is that it would be about 5 times the price.

In Denmark with an ocean view this price would be a real bargain.

Beautiful. But I'm afraid even at that bargain price it's a tad too rich for my little pocket book.

Whatever happened to $15,000.00 3-bedroom, 2-car garage, fireplace, family room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, utility room, and living room houses? I am still living in mine.

I managed to get a new blog started a few days ago. It is only about flowers.

I don't remember seeing this one but, I must say that to my budget that price is way too high no matter where it is located.

Not he architecture I would go with but I'm guessing the view isn't too bad from that house.

The house looks fantastic and I can easily imagine the view from its windows!

I've never visited Uruguai so thank you, David, for the Colonia del Sacramento description.
