WHEN Blur frontman Damon Alburn sang, 'he lives in a house, a very big house in the country' he could have easily been talking about this property.

The 19th century Box Hedge Hall sits within a country house estate spanning more than 10 acres, with its own stables and an outdoor swimming pool

Listed with Savills of Knutsford, this stunning way of life can be yours, but comes with a guide price of just under £2.5million.

The four bedroom Grade II listed home is a handsome and well appointed country house standing in a private mature garden setting overlooking railed paddocks with parkland trees.

Knutsford Guardian: This amazing country estate could be yours for around £2.5million.

The pool area wouldn't look out of place in a French chateau.

If you want to get away for the weekend, then the estate also comes with its own 17th century cottage.

It is situated on Budworth Lane, adjoining open countryside and is equidistant of the neighbouring villages of Comberbach and Great Budworth.

The rural, yet accessible location, is in one of the most scenic spots within the county of Cheshire and maintains an incredibly private setting as it is surrounded by beautiful woodland.

Box Hedge Hall is an impressive residence believed to date from the 19th Century, and constructed of brick with distinctive stone mullion windows beneath a flat roof with parapet walls.

The house benefits from a grand and quite stunning, bespoke Clive Christian kitchen and a master bedroom suite that is the very definition of Presidential and wouldn't look out of place in White House.

The Master bedroom is simply stunning and grandiose. 

In addition to the main residence there is a cottage, domestic outbuildings, office, garaging, stabling, heated outdoor swimming pool with pavilion, formal gardens, further equestrian facilities and railed paddocks, which are available as a second lot.

The villages of Comberbach and Great Budworth offer a primary school, post office, churches and pubs with more comprehensive facilities available in the nearby towns of Northwich, Warrington and Knutsford.

In addition to the state primary schools in the village, there is also private schooling at nearby Cransley, The Grange in Hartford and the Kings & Queens Schools in Chester.

On the recreational front there is a sailing club at Great Budworth and several golf courses locally including High Legh, Knutsford, Sandiway and The Mere Golf & Country Club.

The incredibly cosy cottage sits within the grounds.

For the equestrian enthusiasts there is horseracing at the historic Chester Racecourse, Haydock and Aintree.

There is also polo at Little Budworth, near Tarporley and hunting with the Cheshire Forest whilst the surrounding lanes adjoining the picturesque Arley Hall Estate are ideal for hacking.

The area enjoys excellent road links being 3 miles from Junction 10 on the M56 motorway allowing for ease of access to all areas of commerce throughout the North-West.
