Inside the hidden moated house on the market for almost £2million
A historic country house in Cheshire has come on the market for almost £2million.
The Grade II listed Hulme Hall on Hulme Hall Lane in Allostock, Knutsford is on sale for £1,895,000 after undergoing a huge restoration thanks to English Heritage. The property, set on three acres, has seven bedrooms and is believed to date back to the 15th century.

It also includes four reception rooms, five bathrooms and a two-storey garage with space for five cars, reports Cheshire Live. Hulme Hall underwent a large-scale redevelopment and restoration in 2014 under the direction of English Heritage and the Archaeological Society, due to its status and significance.
The house is believed to have been the ancient ancestral seat of The Grosvenor and The Shakerley families, both of whom were prominent in Cheshire.
But over its long history, the house, located at the end of a long private driveway, has fallen into disrepair.
Restoration work in 2014 saw Hulme Hall transformed into a ‘magnificent’ three-storey country house with modern features ‘sit comfortably’ alongside period features.
Each of the bedrooms has an ‘open view’ of nearby open fields.
The property was built in brown brick, under a stone and Welsh slate roof and also has a moat with a stone bridge.
The house is on the market with Cheshire estate agents Wright Marshall.
The estate agency says: “Hulme Hall has been tastefully refurbished and upgraded, with modern features sitting comfortably alongside its stunning period features.”
The listing adds: “Entered through the magnificent formal dining room with attractive stone flagstone flooring, leading to a wide array of living and entertaining areas.
“There is a splendid living room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the spectacular grounds and moat, with a second living room, lounge, modern kitchen, breakfast room, cloakroom and office complementing the ground floor accommodation -of the road.
“On the first floor there are four large bedrooms, all en-suite, including a master suite with walk-in closet.
“From the first floor landing, stairs lead to the top floor where there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
“Each of the bedrooms enjoys open views over the grounds and open fields beyond.”
