A farmhouse, which dates back to the Jacobean era, has retained its rustic charm while also containing the modern amenities needed for a 21st century buyer.

Old Rib Farm, on Half Penny Lane in Longridge, dates back to 1616 and has been tastefully renovated over the years.

Underfloor heating, spacious bedrooms, a wood burning stove, a decorative pond and a scenic outdoor area, are some of the key features of the property, which is being marketed by Fine and Country for £1.5million.

The entrance hall to the five-bedroom home is said to “exude elegance” with its flagstone flooring and cast iron radiators.

The kitchen is described as the heart of the house and a “chef’s dream”. It features a large island and an Aga.

The kitchen also boasts two dishwashers, an integrated fridge and freezer, pantry cupboard, as well as a wine fridge and drinks cupboard.

The sitting room is the oldest part of the house and features a charming wood burning stove and the original front door of the property, which displays the carved date of 1616 on the lintel, along with the initials AH, believed to be Adam Hoghton who might have played a part in building the property.

Heading up the stairs from the living room you will find a first-floor landing, which leads to three spacious double bedrooms.

There is also a household bathroom complete with a clawfoot bath and separate shower.

The master bedroom has its own en suite, featuring a unique jettied garderobe, a medieval term for an indoor toilet area, where the modern day toilet is now located.  

Head up another set of stairs and you will find a loft bedroom.

There is also an office space which can be used as a spare bedroom.

The grounds of the property are arguably the focal point.

Situated over 1.5 acres of land, the site is described as a “true haven of beauty”. There are several lawned gardens, filled with decorative fountains and a decorative pond.

The outdoor area even features its own enclosed kitchen garden and greenhouse.

A stone shed on the land could be converted into a home office, complete with a wood store at the rear. The double garage, equipped with an electric up and over door, offers convenience and additional storage space, as well as plumbing for a washing machine.

If this was not enough there is also a two-bedroom bungalow annexe on site, providing comfortable and self-contained living.

It comes complete with an open-plan kitchen and living area, as well as a shower room.

A spokesperson for fine and country said: “Old Rib Farm is an extraordinary and unique estate that seamlessly combines historical charm with luxurious modern living.

“Its grand architecture, exquisite features, and stunning grounds create an unparalleled living experience. Don't miss the opportunity to own this timeless piece of history, surrounded by the beauty of Longridge, Lancashire.

“Located just eight miles east of Preston, the charming market town of Longridge offers a close-knit community and serves as the local hub for the surrounding rural farming area. The town boasts a vibrant mix of shops, supermarkets, schools, and service businesses, thriving in its energetic environment.”
