To this month's ridiculously decadent pick of beautiful properties which feature every inner child's must-have home accessory - a swimming pool.
Oak Hall, Wilmslow
Nothing says 'Damn it all, I'm going to enjoy life' quite like the impractical extravagance of a swimming pool. Indoor? Outdoor? Who cares? Either way it's going to cost you a fortune to maintain it. But, so what? At-home pools are never the sensible option. They're the carefree, carpe diem option; the fantasy fulfilled. Tough day at work? Go home, pour yourself a drink and take a little dip in the relaxingly warm waters of your own swimming pool. Doing just that at the glorious Oak Hall, a fabulous modern country pile just outside Wilmslow, is particularly straightforward given there's a seating area and bar next to your pool and eight-person Jacuzzi (not to mention the steam room). The behemoth chandelier, spa-style waterfall feature and mood lighting - we like to think of the above as 'party pink' - take it to the next level. It's all in keeping with the rest of Oak Hall of course, which also comprises a light and luxurious Clive Christian kitchen, five ensuite bedrooms including a master suite with his-and-hers dressing rooms, and a lake which is overlooked by a cabin-style summer house. Perhaps the lake can function as your wild swimming option if that's what you're into. We'll stick to sipping champagne in the Jacuzzi, thanks.

Birtles Hall Farm, Over Alderley
Alongside your outdoor heated swimming pool, which has plenty of space to sparkle thanks to the surrounding 7.5 acres of land, you also have a tennis court, an orchard, perfectly manicured lawns and an extra three-bedroom cottage, should you fancy a convenient bolthole when life in the main five-bedroomed house becomes too much. Although should the daily grind ever get to you, a few lengths in your alfresco pool should see you right.

You'll never need to go to a spa again. Your ever-so-sleek, slightly sexy indoor pool is sandwiched between a stunning outside terrace area and mezzanine gym. This contemporary luxe vibe continues throughout this stunning seven-bedroom home, notably in the giant master suite which comes with luxury ensuite and dressing room as well as a generous balcony from which to soak up the stunning country views after your morning dip.
