At the end of a quiet lane in the heart of the Dordogne countryside, this renovated 4-bed farmhouse and 3-bed gîte has 5 acres of land, a swimming pool, cellar and a 40m2 workshop. The living space is open-plan and very comfortable. The golf course is just 2 mins away, while shops and restaurants are a 3.5km cycle or drive, Saint-Foy-la-Grande is 15mins. Popping into Bordeaux is also easy - the house is 8km from the train station and it’s then a 1hr direct train to central Bordeaux.
The property is vibrant and has been renovated with open plan living spaces and lots of character features and a large wood burner in the sitting room is particularly cosy. French doors open onto the large terrace area - perfect for al fresco drinks and dining. Here’s the layout:
Large 78m2 open-plan sitting / dining / kitchen area
Second sitting room (54m2)
Large mezzanine study (30m2)
Master suite with ensuite bathroom
3 further bedrooms
Small office / occasional 5th bedroom
The gite is attached but independent from the main house It would benefit from a lick of paint and a flourish of colour to maximise rental potential:
Sitting room (20m2)
Shower room & WC
The large terrace next to the house is the perfect spot for eating, drinking and relaxing outside. The gardens are beautifully presented. Across the lane is the swimming pool that is completely enclosed for security. The two hectares (5 acres) of land include a lovely field and meadow.
The house is situated at the end of a lane that is shared with one neighbour, a local wine producer. The house is not overlooked, but the rear of the property is attached to the neighbours wine cellar! No secret doors or tunnels that we’re aware of I’m afraid.
The St Méard de Gurçon golf course is just 2 mins away, while the shops and restaurants of the town are just 10 minutes away. Velines is 8km away which is where you’ll find the train station with a direct route into Bordeaux with a journey time of 1 hour. If you don’t fancy going that far, Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is a 15min drive and has a wonderful Saturday market - recognised as being in the top 50 best markets in the country. Situated on the River Dordogne, it’s a very lively and popular town with locals and tourists alike. It’s a great spot for relaxing in any number of bars and restaurants and watching the world go by. Bergerac airport is 30mins away.
