The principal house was built in 1927 for Domingo Durán Morales, an influential Chilean politician and businessman of his day. He made his fortune building railway lines connecting remote parts of Chile and was a member of the National Congress as a representative of the rising Chilean middle class. He married Julia Neumann and had three children: Domingo, Julio and Marcela. The children lived in the house for most of their childhood and beyond, as the family continued to live in the house after the death of Domingo Durán Morales in 1961. His sons Domingo and Julio went on to become prominent politicians in their own right, one of them running as a Presidential candidate in 1964. For several decades the dining room of the house, where today is located the restaurant Pasta e Vino, was the scene of "Legendary Thursday Political Lunches", where every week was an open-house for leading figures in Santiago's political and social life, afternoons spent in heated discussions that helped build the discourse of the Chilean middle class of the day. The family continued to live in the house until 2001. The Aubrey is truly an urban retreat that lets one escape from the buzz of the city. It is a transformed space with 15 beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms, each with a unique character and most with balconies and terraces. The old Mission style outdoor patio terraces now provide for an outdoor oasis, overlooked by exotic landscaped gardens, where you can relax by the heated jacuzzi swimming pool and for much of the year enjoy alfresco dining, relaxing with the peaceful sounds of the cascading water arches.
