Pownall Hall Preparatory School and highly regarded Gorsey Bank Primary School are close by in addition to popular Lindow Common, Wilmslow Rugby Club, Pownall Tennis Club and the Bollin Valley. Access to the M56 and Manchester International Airport are especially easy from the west of the town. Wilmslow has both Waitrose and Sainsbury’s supermarkets and is renowned for its excellent shopping, restaurants and bars with Marks & Spencer at Handforth Dean and John Lewis at Cheadle both a short drive away. The leisure centre and mainline train station (London Euston 1hr 52mins) are close to the town centre and within reasonable walking distance. This area of Cheshire is one of the most popular for those working in and around Manchester as well as many of the North West's commercial centres, with easy access via the motorway network. Its proximity to the airport is also influential in attracting regular international travellers. There are numerous golf courses, livery and sporting facilities and the Peak National Park is within striking distance for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits. Popular schools in the area include Wilmslow High School, King’s School Macclesfield, Cheadle Hulme School, Manchester Grammar School, Manchester High School for Girls and Withington Girls School. Many provide coaches from the town or are accessible by rail from Wilmslow station.


This is a fabulous Grade II listed residence, formerly the Dower House to Pownall Hall. Previously owned by the Boddington brewing family and extended by them in the 1880's, although believed to have origins from the late 18th Century. Set at the end of a yew tree lined driveway, off the beaten track, the house is delightfully quirky with many period features and part timbered elevations. Under its stone flagged roof the family accommodation extends over three floors. There is a wine cellar and a number of outbuildings including an almost unchanged servant's mess room with fitted benches and a fireplace. The property offers upgraded characterful family accommodation and stands in nearly 0.75 acre of gardens. There is plenty of parking/turning space on the yew tree lined driveway, triple garage and parking areas. The property has recently undergone a program of restoration, renovation and upgrading to provide a modern family home.

To the right is the study/family room with period fireplace and original leaded encased double glazed windows, off to the left a large cloakroom with a WC and fitted cupboards. The rear of the hall opens to the period staircase leading up to the first floor and spacious drawing room with a herring bone wood block floor and an impressive fireplace. Double French doors access the west facing garden and patio areas framed by ornate mouldings.

Beyond this are the outside WC and the former servants mess room with fitted seating and a fireplace. A store room lies alongside. The wine cellar is accessed by a staircase from the central hall.
