Exuding character and style in equal measure, this simply stunning two bed, fourth 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. This particular apartment is situated to the front of the building, providing aspects towards Winter Hill and the undulating moorland to the north of the town, 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 an absolute gem, presented in simply immaculate order throughout and having been wonderfully enhanced by our client since its original construction, leaving a new owner with very little to do other than move in their belongings. The beautifully styled interior, which includes a re-fitted kitchen and bathroom, oozes opulence, with our client’s flair for interior design blending perfectly with the characterful fabric of the building. 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 945 square feet in total.

One enters the building via the secure telephone entry system and proceeds via the vast communal areas up to the lift-serviced fourth 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 and substantial attic-like storage space which has been cleverly created beneath the mezzanine. Proceeding through into the fabulous 29’ open plan main living space, one is immediately enveloped by the warm and inviting ambience created by a combination of the tasteful décor, the stylish combination of shabby chic and vintage French-style furniture, as well as the delightful feature fireplace with its free-standing electric fire. The epitome of modern day living and a wonderfully sociable environment for entertaining, guests are able to spill out onto the 21’ decked sun terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors for an after-dinner cocktail or two. The stylish kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units in grey with complementary laminated work surfaces, and incorporates a Neff electric oven, halogen hob with overhead extractor, and a dishwasher, as well as leaving space for one’s other essential appliances.

The 27’ master bedroom is as bright as it is spacious, and includes a useful dressing area in which to site one’s wardrobes, whilst a second 13’ double bedroom is sited overlooking the main living space, creating a trendy loft-style feel. The accommodation is completed by the smart main 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. Offered with the additional benefit of no onward chain, we are certain that this beautiful home will be swiftly secured and would highly recommend an early inspection to fully appreciate its turn-key presentation, as well as the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
