A handsome Grade II listed country house, with an especially distinctive façade. Rake Farm dates back to 1749 although an inscription on the chimney stack suggests that the rear wing of the building was built in 1734. The accommodation was fully renovated around ten years ago, with recent improvements including a bespoke fitted kitchen with Aga and redecoration throughout. In all the house provides over three thousand square feet of extremely adaptable accommodation, with elegant proportions and a wealth of character with original features sitting alongside the more recent improvements.
In brief, entrance hall, large dual aspect sitting room with open fire, living and dining room with a huge inglenook fireplace and mullioned windows to the front. Rear hall with pantry and cloakroom through to the farmhouse kitchen. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility and potential office, with a range of traditional buildings beyond; offering scope to extend the current accommodation into if required (subject to planning consents). On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a main bathroom. The second floor is given over to one large attic room, with hardwood floors, exposed beams and windows to either side. An ideal space to create a large master bedroom suite if needed.

Converted from a stone barn and named for the old railway bridge, built in the mid 1800’s in connection with ‘Paddy Waddell’s Railway’, a line intended to transport iron ore from the Cleveland mines to the Glaisdale ironworks, but which never materialised. The cottage is situated away from the main house, with independent access and garden and offers high specification accommodation with and has proved popular with an excellent occupancy rate and turnover.

These might range from annexe accommodation for relatives to holiday lets to office space. In the main these are set around an attractive, stone flagged courtyard directly to the east of the farmhouse, providing invaluable storage, garaging and workshop space.
