About Mytholmbridge Farm - The present owners inform us that the original property at Mytholmbridge Farm is approximately 400 years old and for much of that time remained a tenant farm as part of the Farnley Estate. They believe that this is actually the first time that it has been on the market for sale in 70 years they purchased the property approximately 37 years ago in a private transaction.

Since purchasing the property they have carried out extensive renovation converting the attached barn to create a superb space which could be used for entertaining or as a studio space. More recently they added a garden room to the front of the house. The house was re-roofed approximately 10 years ago and has a gas central heating system and burglar alarm. There are many original and character features on display, such as exposed beams and stone fireplaces in the property which has been maintained to a good standard.

The property is accessed from Luke Lane up a long secluded driveway sharing with one other property. This leads to a generous private car parking area and the gardens. The total plot amounts to approximately 1/2 an acre and features a small orchard, extensive lawned areas, paved seating areas and stone stable block / outbuilding.

The property is in the catchment area for OFSTED Outstanding Schools.
