The Property - The property sits on a moated site, which is believed to originate as far back as the 15th century, with additions and alterations in the 17th and 19th centuries, and is believed to have been the former ancestral seat of both The Grosvenor and The Shakerley families, both of whom were prominent within the county. The house, which had latterly fallen into disrepair, underwent a large scheme of redevelopment and careful restoration in 2014, under the guidance of English Heritage and the Archaeological Society, and has been transformed into a magnificent three storey Country Home, providing the quality and versatility of accommodation that more than satisfies the requirements of modern family living. Constructed in brown brick, under a stone and Welsh slate roof, with a handsome asymmetrical plan, approached via a charming stone bridge, Hulme Hall has been tastefully remodelled and improved, with modern elements sitting comfortably alongside its stunning period features.

There is a splendid living room with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the spectacular grounds and moat, with a second lounge, sitting room, modern kitchen breakfast room, cloakroom and an office completing the ground floor accommodation. To the first floor there are four large bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, including a master suite with a dressing room. From the first floor landing, stairs lead to the top floor where there are three more bedrooms and a family bathroom. Each of the rooms enjoys far reaching views across the grounds and open fields beyond.

Externally - The plot spans close to 3 acres, comprising of large lawn gardens, the moat with its stone foot bridge, and an abundance of mature planting creating a truly peaceful and particularly private setting.

Auxiliary Accommodation - The detached two storey garage block features five individual single garages, with a fully converted, self-contained two bedroom apartment above, boasting a lounge/dining space, a fitted kitchen and bathroom, plus a downstairs clockroom/wc .
