Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

CUNDALLS in Mal­ton are cel­e­brat­ing the suc­cess of their lat­est auc­tion, which saw a re­mote North York Moors farm­stead sell for well over the guide price.

Red House Farm­house, in Rosedale, had a guide price of £155,000 and went un­der the ham­mer for £232,000, while the neigh­bour­ing derelict cot­tage started at £45,000, as it had lost its right to be classed as a dwelling. That was sold for £166,000. “We were amazed. We had in­ter­est from all over the coun­try and the auc­tion house packed,” says es­tate agent Tom Wat­son.

“But prop­er­ties like this are rare and they have an ap­peal for peo­ple who want to change their life­style and es­cape to the coun­try.”
