About this property

  • Rock Head Farm is a wonderful detached property with extensive outbuildings and spectacular views south over Glaisdale. The property is sandstone construction with a pantile roof. Internally the accommodation requires some updating, but incorporates many traditional features, and extends to about 3,165 sq ft of internal floor.

    The ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen with a range of fitted units incorporating an electric cooker, fitted washing machine, fridge and freezer. Beyond the kitchen is a breakfast room with traditional range and door to utility room and boiler room. There are three additional receptions rooms arranged as a snug/family room, dining room, and drawing room. There is also a WC on the groundfloor. The centre piece is an impressive entrance hall with bespoke staircase leading to the first floor.

    The first floor accommodation extends to three bedrooms, accessed via two staircases. Two of the thee bedrooms have en-suites; the master bedroom has a unique mezzanine en-suite bathroom. There is also a large family bathroom and a galleried staircase area. The second floor comprises an additional two bedrooms with restricted height and a further WC. The property has oil fired central heating with double glazed windows to part.

    The property is approached via a private driveway with stone walls leading to a parking area north east of the farmhouse. A small terraced garden encompasses the south and east of the house and to the west is a garage, office and the workshop in two renovated traditional buildings.

    Traditional Farm Buildings
    The traditional farm buildings sit south and west of the farmhouse and require complete renovation, being in a dilapidated and unsafe condition. Some of the buildings are double height and have traditional period features. These buildings were previously consented for conversion to holiday use and certainly have potential for diversification into holiday lets or similar amenity or leisure uses (subject to the necessary consents), making the most of the National Park location and proximity to the coast.

    The buildings are constructed in sandstone with pantile and fibre cement roofs. Internally these are arranged as cattle byres and stables. There is also a second access to the farm from the west past this arrangement of traditional farm buildings which could provide a useful second access for development of these properties.

    The farmland surrounds the property and comprises of about 57.36 acres in all. The land is a mixture of meadow and pasture, interspersed with mature trees, hedgerows, and woodlands. The land is ideal for equine or amenity uses which could be run in connection with the property or any leisure/holiday use developed thereof.

    The farmland has historically been occupied by a local farmer on a short term annual basis who has registered and claimed the Basic Payment Scheme Entitlements. There is a Higher Level Stewardship Agreement running to 2020. The farm includes grazing rights on the Danby, Glaisdale and Lealholme common extending to about 75 sheep.
