From an 18th century barn to an impressive modern home which still retains its original features – that’s Green Nook Barn in Longridge.

The four-bedroom property was converted by the present owners about 10 years ago and is situated in a private country lane on the outskirts of Longridge with stunning views over the countryside.

It is set in a large garden, mainly laid to lawn and with trees, shrubs and bushes plus a flagged patio area.

There is ample parking to the front of the house in the area leading to a detached double garage and it is conveniently placed for local amenities, shops, schools and motorway connections.

The ground floor boasts a grand entrance hallway, sitting room, main lounge, study, breakfast kitchen and utility room plus a sauna and shower room.

On the first floor the large open gallery landing has light oak turned spindles and, is open to the ceiling with two oak beams. Off this are the four bedrooms, the master with its own en suite facilities and a family bathroom.

The original features throughout include exposed oak and hardwood beams. Entry to the property is through a large barn doorway featuring stained glass panels to the side and top.

There is a stone arch to the outside, a stone arched beam to the inside hallway, two large oak beams to the ceiling and a light oak hardwood flooring, all overlooked by the minstrel gallery.

The sitting room and main lounge are comfortable and spacious areas with more traditional features, such as the arched inglenook brick and an oak fireplace.

The attractive beamed and tile floored kitchen has handmade bespoke light oak wall and base units, a large larder cupboard, leaded display units, an island unit with space for a microwave plus a Samsung American-style fridge freezer.

The large Falcon range master cooker is another feature in the kitchen from which light oak-boarded doors lead into the lounge, hall and utility room. The raised dining area has an oak floor.

All the bedrooms have oak beams and trusses, the master one with steps down to a dressing area with four double built-in wardrobes and a window with views to the side of the house.
