Exuding character and style in equal measure, this well presented two bed, second floor apartment simply must be viewed to appreciate not only the generous levels of space, but also the thoughtful design, both of the property, but more generally, the development itself, affording a real lifestyle opportunity and 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, and which can be enjoyed all year round due to its sheltered manner of construction, ensuring low maintenance living does not necessarily mean that one is without a space in which to relax with a glass of wine. Providing potential for a variety of leisure uses, this flexible space not least provides the perfect space in which to unwind, for al-fresco dining or perhaps a botanical haven in which to retreat after a stressful day in the office, filling the built-in planters with one’s favourite blooms and listening to the calming sounds of the water feature whilst enjoying the last of the evening sun afforded by the 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 was originally a show home for the development and, therefore, has been finished to a high standard throughout, to include a host of non-standard additions to the already impressive specification. Aside from the excellent standard of presentation, a real feeling of space is created by the high ceilings and an abundance of natural light fills the generously proportioned living areas, which extend to in excess of 940 square feet in total. One enters the building via the secure telephone entry system and proceeds via the communal areas up to the lift-serviced second floor, where one can access the private living spaces; entering via the reception hallway with its feature split-level layout impressing immediately, whilst there is plenty of storage provided by the built-in cupboards.

One immediately notes the warm and inviting ambience which continues through into the fabulous 31’ open plan main living space, the epitome of modern day living and a wonderfully sociable environment for entertaining, with guests able to spill out onto the 20’ decked sun terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors for an after-dinner cocktail or two. The modern kitchen is fitted with a range of Oak-effect wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces, and incorporates a host of integrated appliances, including Neff electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The 24’ master bedroom is lovely and spacious and includes a dressing area with built-in wardrobes, whilst the short staircase up to the private three-piece en-suite shower room, provides another delightful quirky feature.

A second 15’ double bedroom, again comprehensively fitted out, is sited overlooking the main living space, creating a trendy loft-style feel, with the accommodation completed by the smart main bathroom, which is partially tiled and fitted with a quality three-piece Villeroy and Boch suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with overhead shower 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. Offered with the benefit of no onward chain, we would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
