Although, easy access to the M61, close proximity to Bolton town centre, good local facilities and arguably one of the most superb settings in the area means you don’t have to compromise on anything, and neither have we. Designed to our own exacting standards, and inspired by some of the best ‘superhomes’ in the North West, the properties offer the benefit of all the modern facilities of a newly built home, with a distinct architectural heritage reflecting a design formed in the Arts & Crafts tradition but with a modern finesse to suit luxury 21st Century living.

The development will provide a real ‘community’ with family lifestyles high on the list of our objectives. Therefore safety and security are a key consideration which is achieved by providing a secure gated development, with access controlled by residents directly from their homes.

Quality of environment is also a priority, therefore we’ve incorporated as much of the natural features of the site as possible and even added some more. We like trees, we like hedgerows, we like landscaped features. We don’t like bland, ill-conceived street scenes and we’re pretty sure most home buyers do not either.

Hot Water System - A state of the art solar tube system, installed in conjunction with high efficiency condensing boilers, together reduce the fossil fuel fed requirements by 50-75%. This system is further enhanced through the use of under-floor heating throughout the property, which is one of the most efficient methods of dispensing heat available.

Lighting System - In addition to the aesthetic and practical advantages that the mood lighting system offers, it is additionally programmed to trim the lighting levels to a level which is imperceptible to the human eye, but has the result of dramatically reducing electrical consumption and increasing lamp life. Occupancy sensing in utility areas also ensures that lights are not left on unnecessarily.

This area has also been designed with capacity for a waste compactor, which can reduce the volume of household waste to approximately one third of its natural volume.

Appliances - All the installed and integrated appliances will feature an energy efficiency rating of A or higher.
