The home of a ‘brocanteur’, this 3-bed riverside house is a quiet idyll, a character property with large, bright rooms and 6 acres of garden, meadows and woods that extend to the river. Completely hidden at the end of a private road, yet only a 4min drive from the centre of Libourne with its 25min direct train into central Bordeaux.
Completely private, surrounded by woods and meadows and situated right by the river, yet just 4 minutes from the centre of Libourne, this property is perfect for those that are looking for peace and quiet but without having to forfeit easy access to shops, restaurants and transport networks.
As you might possibly have guessed from the photos, the current owners of the house run a brocante business and the large, light rooms with lovely high ceilings give ample space to display their favourite pieces. There is careful consideration to storage space - which is plentiful. Here’s the layout:
The main part of the accommodation is currently all arranged on the ground floor, which is slightly raised above the garden. The attic offers conversion potential which would give an extra 80m2 habitable space. Here’s the layout:

The town of Libourne is the capital of the Gironde wine trade. Situated at the confluence of the Isle and Dordogne rivers, it is a charming and elegant bastide town with wide, shaded boulevards and a lovely market square. Shopping in the town is excellent, with all types and sizes of shops and supermarkets you could hope for. When it comes to eating out, there is a wide range of choice. All other amenities, including a couple of excellent golf courses are in or around Libourne.
Libourne is the first main stop on the train line out of Bordeaux and there are regular direct trains into central Bordeaux with a journey time of approx 25mins.
As the airport is situated on the other side of the city, it’s around 45min drive to get to Bordeaux airport, but it’s also just over an hour from Bergerac airport. Due to the proximity of Bordeaux, there is also easy access on the main access roads heading north towards Poitiers, and on towards the north coast ferry ports, south towards Pau and the Pyrénées and east towards Toulouse and the mediterranean.
