Patagonia River Ranch
Patagonia River Ranch, a "World Class" Sporting Estancia, consisting of approximately 500 acres, is a spectacularly beautiful guest ranch with a worldwide reputation for excellence. Strategically located between the vibrant alpine village of San Martin de los Andes and the sleepy fishing village of Junin de los Andes, the ranch is situated in the very center of the most prolific 50-mile stretch of fishing water of the Chimehuin River, and includes over a half mile of river frontage. A two-hour flight by jet from Buenos Aires delivers you to Chapelco Airport and then a short 25-minute drive puts you at the gate of the ranch. Pristine tree-lined roads, vegetable gardens, lavender fields and rose gardens surround the native rock and timber lodge which reflects old-world Argentinean architecture. The main lodge/home was intentionally designed to function as either a guest lodge or as a personal retreat. Anchored by a stunning rock fireplace, the great room features floor to ceiling windows which offer dynamic views of the ranch, a one-of-a-kind chandelier designed specifically for the room, and a unique antique bar designed by the owner and crafted by local artisans. Stocked with books and cultural artifacts the library creates a peaceful transition between the great room and guest wing. There are 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths with each bedroom having a private bath with tile/marble accents, tub, and separate shower. The private master suite features a spacious bedroom with stone fireplace, custom designed iron chandelier and sconces and a large walk-through closet. A spa like setting is created in the bath by the use of terrazzo marble flooring, custom vanity, Jacuzzi tub, and a large walk-in shower. The guest dining area with its stone fireplace, custom designed stag/iron chandeliers and sconces, wood floors and hand-crafted hickory furniture creates a warm and inviting environment to gather and enjoy friends. A classic wine storage room off the kitchen provides space to store a collection of fine Argentine wines. Other improvements on the ranch include two lovely guest cottages, employee and guide quarters, horse barn and stables, machine/storage sheds and outdoor barbecue area. Approximately 4 acres of cultivated gardens features multiple green houses, gazebo and office and storage area. The business is both stable and profitable, serving the dynamic market of a fly-fishing and adventure oriented clientele. Included is an exclusive client database, reservation and marketing management systems, turn-key administration and all fishing equipment and supplies.
