Greenacres in Benfleet is practically is a castle with opulent interiors and luxury features including indoor pools, an 18-seat cinema, a spa complex and flood-lit tennis court

When discussing a property such as Greenacres, located on Benfleet’s millionaires’ row, we think it best to let the pictures do the talking, as nothing better captures the sheer scale and no-expenses-spared design of this incredible, luxury abode.

But by means of a brief introduction, let us look at few of its many highlights, starting with the rollling-hills setting and its extensive grounds (around three acres) where you’ll not only find a floodlit tennis court, but a pavillion too.

Step inside and be greeted by spectacular triple-height entrance room, before admiring the five reception rooms including a formal dining room complete with wine cellar, no less.

Next up is the fabulous Clive Christian fitted kitchen (never heard of it? Well let’s just say it’s bespoke and very expensive) that’s also a family room and alone has the footprint of a large family home.
