The Island Released For Sale

Hillcrest is releasing ten four-bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced homes set within an idyllic location in Summerseat this weekend at an exclusive open day (Saturday 1st September between 10am and 2pm).

The Island is located next to Summerseat Nature Reserve with meadows, woodlands and the River Irwell on the doorstep coupled with easy commuter access to Bury, Bolton, Blackburn, Preston and Greater Manchester.

The fantastic location has been captured in drone footage released by Hillcrest ahead of the launch.

Forming part of the development is a mid 19th century print and dye works, which has been carefully converted into four substantial three-storey terraced homes providing living accommodation suited to today’s families, all the while retaining the building’s unique character.

These 2,600 sq ft four-bedroom homes, offer open plan living space alongside carefully thought out layouts for study areas and snugs as well as a luxurious master bedroom with dressing room, en-suite and terrace – the perfect spot for morning coffee with the papers to the soundtrack of woodland life.

Two pairs of sympathetic new build semi-detached homes have also been created at The Island, offering an alternative four-bedroom option of 1,500 sq ft of accommodation across two floors, including easy-flow living space, terrace, garage and generous storage.

The Island is home to two further large detached homes, which have been comprehensively refurbished to Hillcrest’s high standards and to complement the history, buildings and natural surroundings of the area. No 2 and No 3 The Island are located at the entrance to the development and offer impressive detached accommodation, set in large landscaped grounds with private driveways. Accommodation is set across two floors with open living and dining areas running the length of the house and kitchens with French Doors out to a patio area for al fresco dining looking over the gardens and River. Upstairs are four generous sized bedrooms, including a fantastic master bedroom with en suite. No 3 also includes a dressing room.

Simone Milner, Sales Manager at Hillcrest Homes says, “The Island has been one of the most exciting developments to work on as it offers the very best of rural village life with the modern accessibility required today by families and professionals. Taking a site in such a unique location and which has so much history and injecting a new lease of life into it has been amazing to see. We look forward to welcoming new families here to create their own memories.”

Situated in the Irwell Valley, Summerseat offers so much to new residents. Thriving village life, rural walks and some excellent schools are right on the doorstep and history is a few miles away on the East Lancs heritage railway, which hosts The Flying Scotsman on occasion – and all just a short drive away from a main motorway network.

All homes at The Island have been specified to the highest standards with a pride in attention to the detail. The kitchens have been designed in partnership with leading designers Stuart Frazer, providing high quality schemes by SieMatic incorporating appliances by Siemens, and finished with stunning quartz stone worktops and Amtico flooring. Plus, the bathrooms feature sanitaryware from Duravit, brassware from Vado and Grohe and porcelain floor tiles.

Prices at The Island start from £495,000 for the four-bedroom semi-detached homes (which are also available to purchase through the Help to Buy scheme), from £522,500 for the four-bedroom terraces homes in The Mill and from £575,000 for the detached homes.

The development sales launch and open day will be held at The Island on Saturday 1st September from 10am to 2pm. Viewings will be appointment only.
