Exuding character and style in equal measure, this well presented one bed, fifth 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, 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 property has lost none of its character, with exposed brickwork and cast-iron supports providing rustic acknowledgements to the building's industrial past, whilst the stylish communal areas 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 from its lofty, tree-top position, as well as affording some stunning sunrises from its Easterly 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 feels lovely and spacious, with the well-worked floorplan extending to circa 600 square feet in total and complemented by the fabulous high ceilings and an abundance of natural light. Our client’s colourful furnishings inject personality and vibrancy, however beneath lies somewhat of a blank canvas, with the neutral décor awaiting a new owner to input their own taste and style. The option exists, however, to purchase the property complete with furnishings, if so desired, creating a home into which one can simply turn the key in the door, sit back and relax in their new surroundings.

One enters the building via the secure telephone entry system and proceeds via the communal areas up to the lift-serviced fifth floor, where one can access the private living spaces; entering via the sizeable reception hallway, with its feature split level layout impressing immediately, emphasising the feeling of space. One continues through into the bright 16’ open plan living space, being the epitome of modern day living and a wonderfully sociable environment for entertaining, with guests able to spill out onto the 15' decked sun terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors with a cocktail or two in those warm summer evenings. The well-appointed kitchen is fitted with a sleek range of wall and base units in high gloss white, with contrasting grey laminated work surfaces and equipped with all of one’s essential appliances, including an integrated Neff electric oven, halogen hob with overhead extractor, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The 14' bedroom overlooks the main living space, creating a trendy loft-style feel, and also benefits from built-in wardrobes, with the accommodation completed by the smart bathroom, which is partially tiled and fitted with a three piece 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. A perfect opportunity for a first time buyer, we would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
