Exuding character and style in equal measure, this two bed, third 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 in the sunshine. Furthermore, this particular apartment is situated to the more desirable rear of the building, providing peace, tranquillity and delightful views over surrounding countryside and as far afield as Manchester, as well as affording some stunning sunrises from its Easterly aspect. Providing potential for a variety of storage solutions or leisure uses, not least this flexible space provides the perfect space in which to relax and unwind, for al-fresco dining or perhaps in which to retreat after a stressful day in the office.

'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 filled with natural light and displays neutral tones throughout, providing a perfect opportunity to infuse one’s individual taste and style by way of furnishings and artwork, as exemplified by our client, in order to make this home their own.

One enters the building via the secure telephone entry system and proceeds via the communal areas up to the lift-serviced third floor, where one can access the private living spaces, which extend to circa 965 square feet in total; entering via the reception hallway with its feature split-level layout impressing immediately and really emphasising the feeling of space. Plenty of storage is provided by the built-in cupboards, as well as a substantial attic-like storage space beneath the mezzanine. One continues through into the generously proportioned 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 19’ decked sun terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors for an after-dinner cocktail or two whilst enjoying the view. The kitchen is fitted with a range of attractive Oak-effect wall and base units with contrasting black laminated work surfaces, and incorporates a host of integrated appliances, including Neff electric double oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The 18’ master bedroom is lovely and spacious and includes a dressing area with built-in wardrobes, as well as the all-important three piece private en-suite shower room. A second double bedroom overlooks the main living space, creating a trendy loft-style feel, with the accommodation 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 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. We would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
