A striking character home dating back to circa 1780 set in predominantly grassed land of around 21 acres including equestrian facilities, mature gardens and grounds, being set back from the road occupying a picturesque semi-rural location with outstanding views of the local countryside. A real home with income opportunity, well placed for access to amenities in nearby Hesketh Bank and within easy commuting distance of Southport, Preston and neighbouring towns, the property is easily reached via a well maintained shared driveway directly from Shore Road. To the front extends a large driveway providing excellent parking facilities leading to a brick built double size garage, entry to the attached barn offering scope for converting into additional living accommodation (Subject to any necessary consents) adjoining stables and a mostly lawned garden with established hedgerow. Much larger established gardens extend to the righthand side and rear of the property with a sizeable yard area to the opposite side leading to a detached general purpose barn/building, the Glasshouses, paddocks, floodlit Manege and main stable block which contains 10 loose boxes, tack and wash facilities. Cottam’s Farm offers numerous business opportunities and obvious scope to expand.

To the rear is a patio which then gives open views to the side. There is ample parking space both to the front of the house for residential purposes as well as to the rear and side for equestrian or more general purposes.
