Here is the description of the property from Christies international:

Located at the centre of a hundred-year-old native cypress and coihue forest, this 710m2 (7,642.38 ft2) house is organized in three stories entirely covered –both the exterior and interior- with autochthonous materials (cypress wood and stone).

The house, at the most 8 years old, is built in accordance to the highest construction standards and with an ideal construction quality, with every door and window made with double panel insulated glass, and with slate ceilings that allow the accumulated snow to slide off.

We enter the lower level through a cold entryway, then into a small distribution hall that accesses the large living room with a fireplace oriented to the southwest with a magnificent view to the Lago Gutiérrez through the large picture windows, which also has an access to the deck.

To the left of the living room we find a cosy dining room suited to entertain 16 guests, and to the right we see a cypress wood-coated library that is accessed through a lenga wood sliding door.All of these rooms have stationed cypress hardwood flooring. The dining room leads us to a spacious kitchen with a dining area, which has polished stone counters, lenga furniture, wood cook stove, gas and electric stove, high ceilings and wooden beams. We access the deck through a door. The distribution hall also accesses another smaller hall that leads to the bedroom area located on the inferior level, where we find two bedroom suites with ceilings, cypress floors and beams, lenga closets that access the yard through window doors. The stone coated bathrooms have lenga furniture and yellow polished stone counters.

On the first floor, where we find the master bedroom suite, we also see an office with cypress floors and walls overlooking the lake, which has a fireplace made with local stones, which also leads to the balcony and to a back deck. The master bedroom has large windows that overlook the lake, and its plaster walls and cypress floors together create a cosy atmosphere. It has high ceilings with wooden beams and a stone fireplace.

The adjacent large bathroom has a bath with hydro massage, a separate shower stall, and is also coated in stone, has plaster walls, lenga furniture and wooden beams. The bathroom also accesses the back deck and the dressing room, which also can be reached through the office.

On the underground level we find a spacious area for storing bicycles, skis, and sport gear, with lenga furniture and grey stone floors with cypress baseboards, which connects us to the swimming pool area that has a gym overlooking the swimming pool and the lake, a cosy playroom, and service area.  The in/out swimming pool has, in the same area, a fireplace and a dressing room with walls entire covered with stone.
