Welcome to Chorltonville
Chorltonville is an estate of 262 houses, located in the suburb of Chorlton in south Manchester. It was built in 1910-1911 as part of the garden village movement, and was originally intended as affordable rental housing for skilled artisans. Today the estate is almost entirely owner-occupied, with most roads, footpaths and green areas owned by a Board of Trustees on behalf of all house owners. An Owners' Committee has a brief to manage the day-to-day maintenance of Chorltonville.
This private ownership has enabled us to retain much of the character of the original estate. Chorltonville is noted for the abundance of mature trees - over 350 in public areas plus many more in gardens. These, together with the grass verges, occasional greens and winding roads, give the estate its village appearance. Houses are mostly semi-detached, built in Arts & Crafts style but to many different designs, with detailing on the frontage to make each pair unique in the estate. Chorltonville is one of Manchester City Council's conservation areas.
