A £1million home, that’s just outside Blackburn, has an extensive history and part of it dates back to the 18th century.

The listing, on Roman Road in Eccleshill, consists of two separate dwellings, the first being a converted five bedroom detached barn which was converted by the current owner in 2008.

There is also a grade two listed farmhouse, which is thought to date back to 1723. 

Davy Field Barn has retained many of its rustic features but has been converted to suit the preferences of a modern buyer. It even has its own pool.

The property, which is being marketed by Duckworths Estate Agents in Darwen, has been described as an “immaculate” and “magnificent”, boasting high ceilings and an open-plan layout.

It has been described as the “perfect abode for someone looking for country living with a modern twist”.

The hallway of the main property is described as “bright and spacious”, with a feature staircase.

The focal point of the dining area is a full length feature window, which boasts panoramic views of the countryside.

Heading into the main lounge you will find a feature fireplace, complete with log burner effect gas fire.

To the first floor are five bedrooms, four of which are doubles.

The master bedroom is described as “a truly impressive space”. It is flooded with natural light and has a private balcony, which overlooks the stunning views.

It also features an en-suite bathroom and dressing room for added convenience and luxury.

The remaining double bedrooms are ideal for families or couples looking for extra comfort.

Additionally, there is a single bedroom which could be used as a nursery or second home office.

If that wasn’t enough, the property also has its own pool room complete with swimming pool and there is underfloor heating throughout.

There is also the option to purchase a further four acre field at an additional cost.

Davy Field Farmhouse is a “charming” and detached property on the site, which dates back to the 18th century.

It has three double bedrooms but it is need of modernisation.

The accommodation includes two reception rooms, providing ample space for both living and dining.

The open-plan kitchen is said to be “perfect for entertaining guests or keeping an eye on the little ones while preparing meals”.

This property also features a separate open-plan reception room, providing an additional space for relaxation or an office area.

Additionally, an additional outbuilding can serve as a workshop or provide extra storage.

Debra Haynes, sales manager at Duckworths Estate Agents in Darwen said: "This property is special it’s a pleasure to be asked to sell it!

"It offers so much flexibility to buyers who could use the accommodation and land options to suit their requirements. It also has all the benefits of a rural feel, but with the advantage of being close to amenities and transport links."
