This 3-bed old stone house has been completely renovated. The living spaces are large and light and the honey-coloured stone walls have been retained. The en suite master bedroom is on the ground floor. The beautiful gardens were professionally designed and there is a large swimming pool and stunning views. Wonderful location 5mins from the River Dordogne and central Bordeaux is under an hour away by direct train.
The layout of the house is open and accommodation. Here’s the layout:
The 30m2 kitchen leads through to a 34m2 dining room which has french doors to the garden on one side and large sliding doors on the other that open out onto the terrace where well placed trees offer shade through the heat of the day. The sitting room is 33m2 in size and has a lovely fireplace with wood-burning stove and a door that leads out to the garden.
The entrance hall, laundry room, pantry, and boiler room as well as the master bedroom with its’ ensuite bathroom complete the ground floor.
Under the eaves of the roof, a mezzanine seating area leads to the two first floor bedrooms (12m2 and 14m2) and there is a bathroom with WC.
The gardens cover just over an acre and are beautifully arranged. Sweeping lavender borders around the lawns give a wonderful scent during the summer months. There are shady terraces near the house and pool for alfresco dining and early evening drinks. The swimming pool is 10 x 5m and has easy steps to enter and take the plunge and there is plenty of space for sun loungers.
The area beyond is dedicated to the well established fruit trees and there is a well. A good sized garage is currently used to house the sit on lawn mower and all the gardening tools.
The far reaching views from the property are stunning and the river dordogne is just 5mins away. In Vélines itself there is a boulangerie and a bar and the lovely river-side towns of Pessac-sur-Dordogne and Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, with a large selection of shops, bars and restaurants, are nearby. If you fancy heading into Bordeaux, it couldn’t be easier. There is a direct train route from Vélines that takes you straight into central Bordeaux in 50 minutes. It is an hour’s drive from the airport.
