Bruntwood has a hall with grounds to the south of Wilmslow Road. Bruntwood Lane was to the east, an open field to the south, with a brook feeding two lakes to the western boundary of the site.
There was a path system and pleasure ground to the south of the house, and a productive garden to the north-east corner of the site.
