A MAGIFICENT country house steeped in history is our featured property this week.

Lower White Lee House at Mytholmroyd is a stunning stone double fronted Grade II Listed five bedroom home that exudes great character.

Set in large and beautiful landscaped gardens, this imposing mansion has delightful views and is located in a secluded setting approached by an attractive private lane leading to the gates and driveway.

It is in immaculate condition with elegance befitting all the best of a golden bygone age. There’s rooms of large dimensions and many of the original features including ornate cornice, friezes and ceiling roses and beautiful woodwork remains.

Parts of the home are thought to date back to 1632 - but it has all the mod cons of the 21st century.

Consequently there’s space galore for a growing family in this home which includes an open porch, reception hall, large gallery landing, dining room, sitting room, an impressive drawing room, bespoke dining kitchen, cloakroom, pantry, rear kitchen and cellar. It has all the mains services and two independent gas central heating systems.

Its grounds include magnificent formal landscaped gardens with well established trees, shrubs, lawns and flower borders. The driveway, which has private parking for several cars, leads to a detached garage.

This private home - which has been reduced to £499, 950 - is secluded, yet a stone’s throw from the centre of Mytholmroyd for all amenities and shops.

The railway station is a few minutes away with excellent links to Leeds and Manchester and there’s a good public transport network with regular buses towards Halifax and Todmorden through the scenic Calder Valley.

The vibrant town centre of Hebden Bridge is just over one mile away and Mytholmroyd itself has excellent primary schools and the bustling Calder High secondary school.

A tour is a must. The front door opens into an impressive entrance hallway with a sweeping staircase which leads up to the gallery landing and exposed beams.

A formal dining room has a feature fireplace, panelled walls, and impressive views of the hills. The huge drawing room has an ornate corniced ceiling and stone fireplace with a cast iron multi-fuel stove.

The sitting room overlooks the front garden and also has an ornate fireplace with a gas coal effect fire.

There’s a bespoke dining kitchen with stone mullion windows and a range of craftsmen-made wall and base units, slate and stainless steel work tops with twin sinks. The cooking and hot water are taken care of with a gas powered “Aga” and there’s a useful pantry and utility room/second kitchen.

The master bedroom boasts superb views and an en-suite bathroom. There’s four other bedrooms, a family bathroom, separate W.C., and a second bathroom which features a bath with “Mira” shower unit, WC and wash hand-basin.
