    About the property

    A fantastic family home in large grounds on one of Hale and Bowdon's most prestigious roads. 'Greenhaven' is a substantial detached residence, built in 1904, that stands in a large, mature plot of approximately 0.6 acres. Whilst the house retains much of its original charm and character, it has been modernised over the years - most notably with the addition of a large orangery to the rear that provides an informal living/dining space and creates a fantastic relationship between the house and the garden. There are three further reception rooms (one of which is used as a cinema room) as well as a kitchen, utility room and cloaks/wc. At first floor the five double bedrooms are arranged around a magnificent galleried landing and are served by four bathrooms. The property had a complete new roof in 2003. There are beautifully maintained gardens to the front, rear and side of the house as well as secure parking for a number of vehicles. A garage block to the side houses up to two vehicles. This is a wonderful family home that has to be seen to be understood and appreciated.
