Dreaming of escaping to the country? A breathtaking castle, set in a picturesque 3.5 acre plot, is now available to rent in the West Cheshire countryside – but it will cost you a cool £10,000 per month.

Described as a 'once-in-a-lifetime rental opportunity', the sprawling home was designed by the renowned architect John Douglas in 1882 and is made up of a seven-bedroom main house, separate two-storey coach house, a one-bedroom cottage and a five-stable outbuilding. You certainly do get a lot for your money.

The main home is situated across four levels, featuring original turrets, stained glassed and mullioned windows, contemporary interior design, neo-gothic architecture, wall panelling and modern luxuries, such as underfloor heating (perfect for winter). From the three separate reception rooms to the dual-aspect living/kitchen/diner, there is plenty of space for the whole family to unwind.

Historical features, manicured gardens and contemporary furnishings — it's not hard to see where all the enthusiasm comes from for this home. As well as the main building, new tenants will also get to enjoy a self-contained Coach House — which offers 4,000 sq ft of versatile living space. It has its own swimming pool, bar area, pantry and a vast chequered formal courtyard with an outdoor fire.

"Many might say that they have a unique home, but this really is a once in a generation opportunity to live in one of the UK's most beautiful homes," Tom Burke, director of lettings at Savills Wilmslow, says.

"With jaw-dropping architecture, which makes it look like it would be at home in the Loire Valley, combined with the very best lifestyle amenities available, there really isn’t anything quite like Eccleston Paddocks available, and I doubt there will be for many years to come. This isn't just a country house, it is simply a work of art."

This property is currently available to rent for £10,000 per month via Savills.
