Full description

We are delighted to bring to the market this truly outstanding and delightfully presented semi-detached five bedroom barn conversion, situated in the highly sought after Ribble Valley hamlet of Osbaldeston.

Mire Wood Barn was originally part of the gate house to the adjoining Oxendale Hall estate, which dates from 1650. The property was fully modernised in 2000 and carefully extended in 2009 to provide the utmost in bright and spacious modern living accommodation, yet retaining its quaint external character which is demanded by its unspoilt rural surroundings. There are far-reaching views over open fields to the front, with French or bi-fold doors from all of the reception rooms leading to the enclosed private rear garden with extensive timber decking areas.

The property is quietly positioned just off the main Lane giving a degree of peace and seclusion, yet is only one mile from the A59 Preston to Clitheroe trunk road. This gives easy access to Preston, all the East Lancashire towns, the M6, M61 and M65 motorways. Direct rail services to Manchester are available from Ramsgreave and Wilpshire station (4 miles distant and approx. 1 hour rail journey time) making this an ideal location for commuters seeking to get away from it all'. Conversely, superfast broadband and a spacious study with en-suite WC offer the perfect environment for the home worker.

The immediate locality offers a myriad of walks down quiet country lanes, public footpaths through open fields and woods and, for the angler, the River Ribble is one mile to the north. Whilst having such a tranquil setting, there is a quaint village pub and petrol filling station/Spar mini-market on the A59 and a host of renowned eating establishments in the surrounding area.
