Enviably located right in the heart of Bispham, one of the prettiest and often photographed villages in Lancashire, directly overlooking the village green and near to the historic Eagle & Child pub, local farm shop & Cedar Farm, 'Derby Cottage' is in need of modernisation but has the potential to become a beautiful family home set in an idyllic spot conveniently close to outstanding schools.

Dating back to C1800, this four-bedroom traditional stone and rendered cottage offers characterful accommodation that has been previously extended and despite requiring updating has a great layout with modern benefits. It also boasts a deceptively large plot with an extensive garden to the side which is not overlooked and backs onto farmland and rolling hills.

Briefly the accommodation comprises entrance hallway, open plan lounge located at front in the oldest part of the building with dining area, two feature fireplaces and exposed beams, separate dining room, kitchen and full-sized downstairs bathroom. Upstairs there are four good sized bedrooms and another family bathroom this one featuring a freestanding roll top bath.

Outside there is a driveway to the rear accessed off Back Lane that provides ample off road parking for up to four cars plus space for storage and two sheds plus extensive gardens that stretch from the rear and side with rockeries, well stocked borders, lawns and fish pond. To the very far side of the garden there is another driveway/hardstanding off Maltkin Lane leading to a purpose built "home office" (as yet with no services connected). This house has so much potential inside and out making a closer inspection necessary.

TENURE We are informed by the Vendor that the tenure of the property is Freehold.
