Luxury property for sale near Bergerac, Dordogne SW France – private sale FSBO


If you’re looking for a beautifully designed,
modern, luxury property for sale in the Dordogne, in South west France, then this video is going
to show you a unique house. In 2001 the owners chose the perfect spot
to build their one-storey 4-bedroomed home with private pool and large – now mature – garden, surrounded by vineyards and valleys. The attention to detail is astounding. When the owners were designing this property, they put so much thought into what they wanted from a home. Firstly the property was built on a solid concrete foundation, so that the
drive, house, garage, terraces and pool would all be on one solid level – there are no steps
at all. The walls are also built from concrete bricks,
adding to the effective insulation in the property. As well as having solar panels,
the roof is very well insulated so the heating costs are well below that of a similar sized
house without these features. The property has oil-fired underfloor heating plus radiators
and an air-conditioning system which regulates the temperature throughout the year. A drive, bordered by mature plants, leads
to a large turning space, suitable even for an oil delivery lorry to turn in. And there
is covered parking for four cars with direct access to the property, so no getting wet
when unloading the car! The first thing that strikes you when you
enter the property is the amount of light coming in through the large double-glazed
windows. The spacious open plan living/dining room offers a choice of seating and dining
arrangements, depending on the number of guests. The property is double-glazed throughout and
the windows either have their own rolling shutters or they are made from special safety
glass. Mosquito nets on all the windows add an extra special comfort. The fitted, american style kitchen has all
the high quality mod-cons you need, including an integrated oven, microwave, fridge, a four-ringed
ceramic hob and extractor fan, and an integrated dishwasher. An indispensable second kitchen and utility
room, with fitted units and a gas hob, leads through to the garage and workshop area, where
there is plenty of room for additional storage – or even a couple of cars! The oil tank is next door in a barn where there is room to store a tractor and garden tools. There are four bedrooms, one of which is currently
used as an office. The main bedroom has windows on two sides and has a dressing room, which is large enough to be converted into a study, with its own access to the garden. There is also an ensuite bathroom which
has a toilet, bidet, walk-in shower, bath and two basins – all with high quality fittings and there’s a door that takes you straight into the garden. There are two further shower rooms with toilets and there is plumbing ready for a possible fourth toilet and shower near to the pool. The remaining
bedrooms all have built-in storage. A circulation pump provides direct warm water
throughout the  house – so no cold showers if someone else is using warm water elsewhere
in the house at the same time! However, if you did want to cool off, this
12 metre pool is the perfect place to do so – while enjoying the tranquil view, disturbed
only by birdsong, crickets or frogs – depending on the time of day . . . . The pool, whose
pump is hidden away in a sound-proofed part of the house, is easy to look after and is
protected in the winter by a fitted cover. There are plenty of lounging, sitting, barbeque
and dining areas around the pool including a covered dining area. The garden, with its mature fruit trees, is
easy to maintain and has a fish pond with Koi fish – and plenty of frogs! Even the family
dog has its own private, luxury sleeping area and pen! This satellite view shows the amount of land that comes with the property and includes land available to construct two further houses, for which planning permission has already been agreed. So why did the current owners choose this
particular area to make their home in . . .? Well, the Dordogne, a region rich in vineyards
and fortified ‘bastide’ towns, offers a warm welcome, an extraordinary range of
natural and historic heritage sites; the beauty of the Dordogne River;
the renowned gastronomy and wines of the Périgord; and an active cultural life and numerous leisure
and sporting activities. If you play golf you will no doubt be delighted
to know that the house is situated just 5 minutes drive from Chateau des Vigiers’ 27
hole golf course. If desired, membership can be arranged. Conveniently situated about 20 minutes drive
from both Bergerac and Sainte Foy la Grande, this house is in a perfect location if you
are looking for tanquility and beauty but with easy access to large towns and schools.
Both towns have their own train station – and Bergerac has its own international airport
from where there are frequent flights by low-cost carriers to the UK, Belgium, Holland and Germany.
Bordeaux airport is only 90 minutes drive away giving access to a large number of additional destinations. As you have seen, a lot of thought has gone
into the design of this beautiful home, which has been built to extremely high standards.
The property is ready to move into and there is no chain. If you would like any further
information, or would like to arrange a time to visit, please use any of these details
to get in touch. Thank you for watching.
