Exuding character and style in equal measure and having been fastidiously maintained by our clients, we are confident that any potential buyer cannot fail to be impressed by this outstanding two bed duplex penthouse apartment, boasting an immaculate standard of presentation which can only be appreciated via internal inspection. The thoughtful design of the property and, more generally, the development itself, affords a real lifestyle opportunity, forming part of an exclusive complex, the type of which is normally reserved for the fashionable city centre of Manchester.

With a rich heritage of cotton weaving, the former mill town of Bolton was once at the forefront of the world's cotton production and this exciting opportunity lies within one such hub - Holden Mill, a stunning Grade II listed former cotton mill, the last of its type to be constructed in the town in 1927, and which has become a landmark building, famed for its iconic domed tower. Acquired by renowned local builders, P.J. Livesey, this centre of industry, once a building designed for function over aesthetics, has been re-modelled into a new purpose for the 21st century, skilfully and sympathetically converted to a range of executive apartments known as 'The Cottonworks', and providing a real lesson in how to blend character and contemporary flair.

Offering all the modern appointments one would expect of a modern home, the building has lost none of its character, with exposed brickwork and cast-iron supports providing rustic acknowledgements to the building's industrial past, and stylish communal areas which create a feeling more of a boutique hotel than a residential building. Aside from the obvious appeal, what sets these properties apart is the private outdoor spaces, an innovative and unique feature to this development, which affords residents their own private sun terrace, ensuring low maintenance living does not necessarily mean that one is without a space in which to relax with a glass of wine in the sunshine. This particular apartment is situated to the front of the building, providing gorgeous views of Winter Hill and the undulating moorland to the north of the town from its top floor position, as well as affording a great deal of sunshine from its Westerly aspect.

'The Cottonworks' is located on the border of Astley Bridge and Sharples, ensuring there are a host of local shops and amenities close at hand, with its convenient location on an arterial route into the town centre, affording superb public transport links, with the vibrant centre of Bolton accessible in minutes, where one can sample the diverse range of high street stores, bars and eateries. Furthermore, the A666 provides direct access to the motorway network, which will be ideal for those with a commute to consider, ensuring major commercial centres, in particular Manchester, are within easy reach.

The apartment itself is a real gem, not only benefitting from its generous initial specification, which includes quality Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware throughout, but having been enhanced further by our clients with many thoughtful touches and additions, leaving a new owner with little to do other than to move in their furniture.

One enters the building via the secure telephone entry system and proceeds via the communal areas up to the lift-serviced sixth floor, where one can access the private living spaces, which extend to in excess of 955 square feet and are thoughtfully arranged over two inviting levels; entering via the reception hallway with its convenient two-piece cloakroom/WC and spindled staircase to the upper floor, before proceeding through into the magnificent 28’ open plan living area, which is filled with natural light via the uPVC double glazed patio doors. This wonderfully sociable environment lends itself perfectly to entertaining, with guests able to spill out onto the sun terrace for an after-dinner cocktail or two and soak up those breath-taking views amidst this stunning little oasis, which is one of the nicest of its type that we have had the pleasure of marketing, being a real haven for relaxation and contemplation.

The stylish kitchen is fitted with a range of sleek, high-gloss wall and base units in white with contrasting black polished granite work surfaces, and incorporates a host of integrated appliances, many of which have been recently replaced, including Neff electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

On the upper level, the landing provides access to the two double bedrooms, both of which benefit from an extensive range of built-in furniture and integrated window blinds, with the master suite enjoying those magnificent views, as well as a private three piece en-suite shower room. The accommodation is completed by the main bathroom, which is fitted with a three-piece suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and tiled bath with shower handset attachment.

Externally, the gated development affords a real feeling of exclusivity, approached via electronically operated gates, with beautifully maintained communal gardens and secure allocated indoor parking facilities. We would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
