Property Description

Where is the Chimes situated?

Nestled in the suburban village of Cheadle, the Chimes sits in a peaceful spot right between St Mary's Parish Church and the Alexandra Hospital.

The park is a perfect place to enjoy a long walk amidst lush greenery and admire a couple of charming ponds alongside Chorlton Brook.

The neighbourhood is well-connected to the city centre and beyond. A 16-minute walk is all it takes to reach Gatley Railway Station, operated by Northern Trains.
