We are principally realtors for agricultural property in Uruguay and Paraguay (Farmland investments Uruguay real estate) This page groups properties that feature historic architecture and in some cases true grandeur


Argentina, Uruguay
The heartland of Argentina and the south-western half of tiny Uruguay, the Pampas, are serious farming and ranching regions, with climate, topography, soils being favourable. Cattle and agriculture created considerable wealth from the 1850s to the 1950s among large land owners. Several proud estates / Estancias remain today. Some of the Estancias listed here have the ingredients for a true grand estate - the historic mansion and size and quality of land for serious professional ranching and farming. Uruguay, which is my home market, is sometimes perceived as the "better Argentina" for being a more prudent and predictable political and juridical environment. Farmland prices have multiplied over the last years as they have in other world regions. Operational farming returns on assets (land purchased) are somewhat modest as a result.

Estancia architecture of Uruguay


Some of Mexico's appeal being its proximity to the US, its immensely rich culture and history with abundant historic architecture. It is not principally a country of large agricultural estates, but more of small land holdings. A historic Hacienda offered for sale would typical be a tiny fraction of its original, pre-revolution of 1910 size, and rather serve as a rural residence or a tourism venture, less so as an income producing agricultural estate.
Many Haciendas for sale today are located in Yucatan, where around 1900 a boom of henequen sisal fibre production led to the founding of many stately architecture rural estates.

Listings on this page are located in the Paraiba Valley inland from Rio de Janeiro, a region well known for its formerly coffee growing historic estates / Fazendas. it is a montanous and very scenic region. Here again properties will rather be rural (stately) residential or touristic with possibly farming/ranching on hobby scale. The region's climate makes for lush vegetation and great possibilties for landscaping
