Built in 1975, but in traditional style, this family home has had a recent makeover. The major updating has been completed, with modern bathrooms, outstanding kitchen, central heating and a newish roof. Now the outside needs repainting and the gardens would benefit from some landscaping.
Situated in the wine growing area of SW France, where the summers are hot and snow is hardly ever seen, the property has been built to make full use of its elevated position. It nestles into the hillside, overlooking grounds which are partly wooded. It is in a peaceful spot, but not isolated, about 6 minutes drive from Castillon and 20 minutes from Libourne. The house is easy to reach from the international airports at Bergerac (40 minutes) and Bordeaux (50 minutes). There is a TGV station at Libourne and the A10/N10 from Paris is within easy reach.
As mentioned, the house has been built to take advantage of the views. At garden level there is an office (10m2), two double bedrooms (15m2 &14.5m2), bathroom (8.5m2), laundry room, garage and spacious storeroom/cellar (25m2).
This means that the open-plan kitchen/ dining/sitting room (45m2), which is on the upper floor, has the best outlook. The kitchen is almost brand new, and beautifully fitted. A keen cook would be thrilled! On this floor there are two further bedrooms. The larger (13m2) has an ensuite bathroom, the other (12m2) a separate shower room. A balcony runs along the front of the house and there is an enclosed verandah with built-in stone BBQ.
At some distance from the house there is a run of outbuildings (60m2) which are currently kennels, but which a new owner may use entirely differently.
Libourne is the capital of the Gironde wine trade, a bastide town, which displays its current and past wealth in fine houses and excellent shopping. A market is held there 3 times a week. It has wide, shaded boulevards and welcoming bistros and restaurants. Whilst many flock to the Mediterranean coast in the summer there are some delightful uncrowded wild beaches and fresh clean rivers in the Dordogne Valley -perfect for a warm afternoon.
