A historic country house in Cheshire has arrived on the market for close to £2 million.

The Grade II-listed Hulme Hall, on Hulme Hall Lane in Allostock, Knutsford, is for sale for £1,895,000 after undergoing a huge restoration thanks to English Heritage. The property, situated on a three-acre plot, boasts seven bedrooms and is believed to originate as far back as the 15th century.

It also features four reception rooms, five bathrooms and a two-storey garage with space to house five cars, reports Cheshire Live. Hulme Hall underwent a large-scale redevelopment and restoration back in 2014 under the guidance of English Heritage and the Archaeological Society, as a result of its listed status and significance.

Inside Hulme Hall

The house is believed to have been the former ancestral seat of both The Grosvenor and The Shakerley families, both of whom were prominent within Cheshire.

But during its long history, the house, which is situated at the end of a long private driveway, fell into disrepair.

The restoration work in 2014 saw Hulme Hall transformed into a ‘magnificent’ three-storey country home with modern elements ‘sitting comfortably’ alongside period features.

Each of the bedrooms boasts ‘far reaching views’ of the nearby open fields.
