Full description

A first class productive farming estate in the Ribble Valley.

Description

Rowntree Farms is an excellent ring-fenced farming estate in the Ribble Valley with two principal holdings being Windy Pike and Moorhouse Farm. Each has a substantial farmhouse and additional cottage all centrally located in a ring-fenced block of over 474 acres. The land comprises predominantly productive grassland interspersed with attractive woodlands and hedgerows. The farms have been owned and run by the vendors’ family for over 70 years, initially as a 250 head dairy herd but latterly carrying the renowned and award winning Ribble Aberdeen-Angus pedigree herd with 500 head together with a 400 head commercial mule based sheep flock. The property has also given great enjoyment with both shooting and fishing well catered for.

The principal house, like much of the estate, is accessed via a private drive and set within attractive mature gardens with spectacular views towards Pendle Hill. To the east is a small tarmac courtyard bound by stone walls, orchard and traditional farm buildings which make for an attractive everyday parking area. The gardens are divided by established borders and shrubs. The property is a traditional stone built farmhouse complete with mullioned windows and rich history having being mentioned in the Domesday Book. Extended over the years this now totals 3,820 sq ft. Ground floor accommodation includes a large family kitchen, dining room, sitting room, drawing room, various ancillary rooms and cloakroom. The first floor includes 5 bedrooms (2 en-suite) and family bathroom. Part of the ground floor is given over to a garage with office space and store above. The property has been excellently appointed and decorated throughout with log burning stoves, open fires and many attractive period features. The property has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows in part.


Acreage: 473 Acres
