This lovely, single-storey home was built by the current owners under the supervision of an architect. It has been constructed to a particularly high specification using a combination of traditional materials and exacting standards. With stone walls, double glazing, high performance electric heating and quality fixtures and fittings it is a cost effective and comfortable place to live.
The front door opens to a vestibule with a guest cloakroom and WC off it. In front of you is the large, vaulted living room with two sets of glazed doors opening to the gardens and a powerful wood burning stove as a focal point. Through double doors is a large and well fitted kitchen with space for a dining room table and a sofa. Again there are glazed doors to the gardens and terrace. The kitchen also has a door to the garage.
Bedrooms and bathrooms are at the other end of the house. The master suite in particular has very generous proportions and a well equipped and attractive en suite bathroom.
The town centre is a short, level walk away.
ABOUT THE AREA
The house is on the edge of the pretty bastide town of Monsegur in the Entre Deux Mers region of the Gironde. This area is considered to be the prettiest of the Bordeaux wine making appellations because of the beautiful rolling countryside and unspoilt stone towns and villages. Monsegur is no exception as it celebrates the 750th anniversary of its founding by royal charter in 2015 and the centre of the town is protected by 'Batiment de France' . The town has a lively social element to it with summer night markets, regular concerts in the cafes and bars, a cinema which shows English language films and a selection of clubs and societies. There are schools, shops and services as well as a weekly market every Friday. International airports are close by at Bergerac and Bordeaux, there is a railway station at nearby La Reole and there are good connections to the nearest autoroute.
