WORK on ten stunning homes on ‘The Island’, off Railway Street in Summerseat, is nearing completion and a special open day is being held on Saturday, June 22 (11am – 3pm) for potential buyers to browse the show homes and appreciate the spacious and stylish accommodation offered in this idyllic location.

Situated next to Summerseat Nature Reserve and accessed via a private bridge over the River Irwell, The Island provides a peaceful retreat from the ‘hustle and bustle’ yet is perfectly placed for easy access to local amenities and commuter routes.

A range of styles of home are offered, from sympathetic conversions and new build properties to comprehensive refurbishments, all providing spacious four-bedroom accommodation and designed to complement the natural surroundings.

Each of the homes is finished to an exemplary standard and provides ample opportunities to enjoy the picturesque surroundings. A characterful mill building has been thoughtfully converted into four substantial three-storey terraced homes providing living accommodation suited to modern families, whilst retaining the building’s unique character with many original details retained. These 2,600 sq ft four-bedroom homes offer open plan living space alongside carefully created layouts for study areas and snugs as well as a luxurious master bedroom with dressing room, en-suite and terrace.

Two pairs of sympathetic new build semi-detached homes have also been crafted, one of which is dressed as a show home, offering an alternative four-bedroom option of 1,500 sq ft of accommodation across two floors, including easy-flow living space, integrated garage and generous storage.

Set slightly separate to the rest of the homes, are two large detached homes, one of which is dressed as a show home, which have been comprehensively refurbished to exacting standards and are set within 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 Irwell. Upstairs are four generous sized bedrooms, including a fantastic master bedroom with dressing area and en suite. All homes at The Island have been specified to the highest standards. 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. The bathrooms feature sanitaryware from Duravit, brassware from Vado and Hansgrohe and porcelain floor and wall tiling throughout.

Situated in the Irwell Valley, Summerseat offers thriving village life, rural walks and some excellent schools right on the doorstep and history a few miles away on the East Lancs heritage railway, which hosts The Flying Scotsman on occasion.

Prices start from £475,000 with Help-to-Buy available on the semi-detached homes. The development is funded in association with Together. For more information contact Miller Metcalfe Estate Agents on 0161 358 0910.
