It was space, but not as you know it, for homebuyers in Bolton last weekend at the official launch of PJ Livesey's The Cottonworks. The conversion specialist, who is fast growing a reputation for providing purchasers with an abundance of space, has not disappointed on its latest north Manchester development by designing apartments, including one-bedroom properties, with lots of square footage.
The appeal of the extra space is supported by stylish and innovative designs including original pillars, decked patios and elegant mezzanines. Unsurprisingly, the apartments attracted a high propensity of young professionals at the official launch who had returned to take a look around the four show apartments and two view units.
Sales manager, Colette Gannon explains the appeal of the development: "Bolton is close enough to Manchester City Centre to travel into work or go for a night out yet has a vibrant town centre of its own to explore for a meal, a drink or to engage in some retail therapy. It's the perfect location for those who want to enjoy the benefits of living close to Manchester without paying the price tag attached to properties South of the Centre.
"With the location stamped as a winner, the property itself is often a second priority, especially for young professionals and first-time buyers who are hampered by cost. The Cottonworks has literally stopped these buyers in their tracks as they are viewing high design, dream homes which come in within budget."
PJ Livesey is currently offering fitted carpets, stamp duty paid and £350 towards legal fees on the apartments at The Cottonworks. It also has a starter pack for this development which includes five per cent deposit paid and £350 towards legal fees. One-bedroom apartments start at £116,950 and it is these properties, according to Colette, that caused the biggest stir at the weekend: "Visitors were standing in the lounge of what they thought was a two-bedroom apartment, because of the large proportions and generosity of size, and being absolutely astounded to discover that they were actually in a one-bedroom property."
The 1926 Grade II listed building - the last mill to be built in the area - was designed and built for Sir John Holden by Bradshaw, Gas and Hope and has retained a number of distinctive architectural features.
