Exuding character and luxury in equal measure, this stunning true penthouse duplex apartment is one of only a handful of executive flagship homes occupying the top floor of this beautiful iconic building, affording a marvellous open plan living space, three double bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms and a breath-taking private wrap-around roof-top terrace, providing incredible panoramic views. This unique home simply must be viewed to appreciate not only the impressive levels of space, which extend to in excess of a vast 1,655 square feet - large enough to dwarf many detached homes - 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, and 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 stylish apartments known as ‘The Cottonworks' and providing a real lesson in how to blend character and contemporary flair. Offering all the appointments one would expect of a modern home, the property has lost none of its character, with rustic acknowledgements to the building's industrial past, whilst the comfortable communal areas create a feeling more of a boutique hotel than a residential building. ‘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 sixth floor, where one can access the private living spaces, entering via the large reception hallway, with its spindled staircase to the upper floor and two piece cloakroom/WC, and immediately being enveloped by the welcoming ambiance, tasteful décor and high quality fixtures and fittings. One proceeds into the fabulous 36' open plan main living area, incorporating the lounge/diner and kitchen; the epitome of modern day living and a wonderfully sociable environment for entertaining, with guests able to spill out onto the roof terrace via the uPVC double glazed patio doors for an after-dinner cocktail or two. The high specification 13' kitchen is fitted with a range of sleek, high gloss wall and base units in white with contrasting wooden work surfaces, and incorporating under-unit spotlighting and a host of integrated appliances, including electric oven, induction hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, whilst there is a useful separate utility area with space for a washing machine and dryer. Located in the warm welcoming hallway is a good sized storage cupboard (not seen on the plans) containing fuseboxes and wifi connections. The 22' master bedroom is also located to the lower floor and benefits from its own direct access to the roof terrace, as well as a range of built-in wardrobes, as well as a three piece en-suite shower room, whilst there are a further two double bedrooms to the upper floor, both of which boast built-in wardrobes, with the 16' second bedroom also benefitting from a three piece en-suite shower room, therefore creating an ideal guest room. The accommodation is completed by the main bathroom, which is fitted with a quality three piece Villeroy & Boch suite in classic white, comprising of WC, pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with shower attachment. Smoke alarms on both floors with vented showers and kitchen.

Externally, the gated development affords a real feeling of exclusivity, approached via electronically operated gates, with beautifully maintained communal gardens and with two allocated parking spaces, one of which is internal and close to the service lift. The innovative and quite unique feature to this development, however, is the provision of private sun terraces for residents, and this property has arguably the most impressive of them all, 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, whilst taking in the breath-taking views across the Bolton landscape, beautiful local countryside and as far as Manchester. We would highly recommend an internal inspection to fully appreciate the sociable community, timeless luxury and lifestyle which ‘The Cottonworks' can offer.
