  • Description

    Description

    My property is a XIX century English-Argentine style house in Santa Fe province, a flat and open farm area in middle of Pampas (El Trébol City area), sand roads and 13km from routes and villages. It is 200kms north from Rosario city (2 hours).
    I live here part-time, aprox. three weeks per month. House was partly restored in 2009-2012. It is really big - almost 350m2- . Huge rooms with argentine ceiling (chapa-thin bricks and pinothea wood sticks), thick walls, pinothea floors also big iron gratings windows.
    I have three dogs here & vegetable garden.

    I am mainly looking for people to help me in keeping the garden clean, take care of young trees, vegetable garden and planting new trees
    Also in restoring wooden windows and painting. Most of them are really unique, so need care restauration (care do no mean proffesional).
    House is really big, so general cleaning would be really apreciated.

    What else ...

    If you are looking for a incredible flat farm area, sorrounded by crops, living in a XIX argentine house, extremely silent and quiet: this is your opportunity.
    I don´t reside here permanently, that´s why I would accept no more than one volunteer , for no more than 3/5 days.
