Exuding character and style in equal measure, this well presented 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, 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. 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 and enjoy 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.

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 in excess of 1,015 square feet in total. On entering via the reception hallway, one is immediately greeted by an abundance of natural light, which is complemented by the neutral tones displayed throughout, providing a perfect canvas on which to infuse one’s individual taste and style. The feature split-level layout emphasises the feeling of space, which only intensifies as one continues through into the generously proportioned 31’ open plan main living space, the epitome of modern day living, yet where an authentic industrial ambience is created by the feature cast-iron pillars, which add such character. The feature fireplace with its wall-mounted plasma-style electric fire creates a warm and inviting atmosphere for those cosy Saturday evenings in with a film and a takeaway, however, when one is in the mood for entertaining, this wonderfully sociable environment is able to accommodate even the most populous of gatherings, with guests able to spill out onto the 19’ decked sun terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors for a glass of something sparkling. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units with contrasting laminated work surfaces, and incorporates a host of integrated appliances, including Neff electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The 24’ master bedroom is a real delight, being 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 15’ double bedroom overlooks the main living space, creating a trendy loft-style feel, with the accommodation completed by the 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.

We would highly recommend an early inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which 'The Cottonworks' can offer.
