External cold water tap and electric socket. Gated rear access.
Gated access to a gravelled parking area, with private parking for two vehicles. Additional parking is possible to the track.
As you would expect in such a rural location, mains gas and water are not available. The property has a private spring water supply and private drainage by means of a septic tank (shared with Rake Barn which is located to the rear of Rake Farm). Oil central heating system installed. Solar panels are also fitted which provide electricity for the property and also feed back into the grid. There are 16 solar panels (= 4kw) which, we are advised, currently generate approximately £2000 per annum.
From Todmorden town centre, head towards Burnley on the A646 and continue for just over 1 mile, passing the High School on the left hand side. Just after the school playing field, take a right hand turning into Cross Lee Road. Continue up the hill and over the railway bridge. The road narrows and becomes an un-made track. Continue on this single track, over a cattle grid, passing a Farmhouse on the right and bearing left over a second cattle grid. This track leads to Rake Farm and Rake Barn.
