Estancia María S

Estancia María S

Última Esperanza, Seno Obstrucción

Before reaching Obstruction Sound, about 40 km south of Puerto Natales, at the mouth of Golondrina River, abandoned houses, old wooden bridges and vestiges of docks coexist at the Estancia María S, which open up possibilities for different stories to be told, with views of Obstruction Sound and colorful landscapes. In autumn, the vegetation displays reddish tones, while in winter the landscape is taken over with white and blue.

Abandoned private estate, nestled among beautiful landscapes of forests and groves that in autumn are reflected in the river that surrounds it, overlooking mountains and the obstruction sound. The house is in bad condition but with the possibility of adapting its façade.
