Cheshire is the perfect option for those who are looking for a luxurious destination to set up a home away from home!

So you fancy living in Cheshire's Golden Triangle and having a slice of the WAGs life but you don't like the look of those expensive price tags in the estate agents windows . Well we have a solution.....swap the Cheshire Triangle for the Cheshire Ring!

Last year the mirror reported that several footballers were struggling to sell their properties and were even having to slash the prices by hundreds of thousands of pounds to gain any interest from buyers.

Despite the fact the footballers have the very best money can buy and their homes are full of luxuries like swimming pools, beauty salons, gyms, cinema rooms and jacuzzi's there just doesn't seem to be enough people out there with the right amount of cash to take these premium properties off their hands.
