Harpers Lane, Smithills, Bolton, BL1 6HR
Drive along the quiet and leafy Harpers Lane and pull up outside the striking row of period three storey homes that form Glen View. Follow the neat cobbled pathway and stone steps up to the welcoming black front door of number 32.
Step in through the etched glazed vestibule door into the enthralling entrance hall. Your first glimpse of this newly renovated home really sets the theme as the period panelling has been sympathetically crafted to create a contemporary glamorous feel within a classical Georgian setting.
The subtly decorated tones are carried off via the grey herringbone Amtico flooring underfoot.
Push open the original solid wooden door to the left to find your beautifully decadent reception room where the newly crafted wall panelling creates a node to the property’s past. Painted in a period dark blue, this room eludes elegance with its large bay windows drawing in lots of light. Set between the panelling, a black moulded timber fire surround set on top of a stone hearth provides the perfect focal point to centre your formal furniture around.
Next door emerge into another spacious sitting room. Tall, white ceilings stand in stark contrast to the peacock green alcoves and ornate black fire surround. Its warming exposed brick chimney breast ensuring that this is the cosiest of rooms come winter. Above, the ceilings stretch up high to the deep architraves and the light is drawn in by a tall window to the rear elevation.
Sneak a peek through the end door and step into your fresh, exciting high spec kitchen. The epitome of cool contemporary culinary spaces, this show-stopping room is the real heart of the home. Newly remodelled, this tall, light and airy space has been fashioned to create a real entertainer’s kitchen. The kitchen itself is fully encased in warm grey wood-grained cabinetry, skilfully arranged around a central island. Above head, a perfectly placed light canopy suspends two Edison lamps further emphasising the height and space the property has to offer.
Decorated in cooling hues of grey and soft white with extensive white Quartz work surfaces, this show room standard kitchen is an aesthetic treat. The wall cabinets form an imitation chimney around a 5-ring hob. An inset sink within the bay comes complete with a contemporary mixer tap with handheld rise; a built in double oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher all seamlessly flow within the space.
With ample space for your dining table, throw open the bi-folding doors and take the party outside to your al fresco dining area. A built-in seating area has been crafted, perfect for entertaining, and also ideal for a relaxed morning breakfast.
The skylight window in the vaulted ceiling allows the sunlight to gently filter in, setting the scene for the not to be missed mezzanine level. Accessed via the spiral staircase, this bijou space has been finished with a glazed balustrade to enjoy the light. A great place to study or snuggle up with a book.

Back in the hallway, tucked away beneath the panelling under the stairs, is a w.c on hand for guests and residents alike. Next to it, a nifty storage cupboard stashes away those coats and shoes.
Ascend the softly carpeted striking staircase as it curves up to the split level first floor.
Directly ahead, you will find a grand bathroom, with a roll top bath literally taking centre stage. Raised up on a step to heighten the splendour, this luxurious space is surrounded by newly crafted panelling. Traditional tiling beneath foot contrasts perfectly with the grey hues. A traditional heated towel rail radiator finishes off the space.
Drop in to your right, and discover a study room or fifth bedroom tucked away in the centre of the house before ascending the soft neutral tread of the stairs, to discover the sleeping quarters.
At the end of the corridor to the front aspect of the house your master bedroom awaits, tastefully bedecked in soft heather grey wallcoverings. Light and bright courtesy of its tall ceilings and large bay this sumptuous room provides the perfect space to rest you head.
Slide on into the master ensuite with double glazed shower enclosure and modern back to the wall w.c and vanity sink delicately set against greige tiling.
Next door lies another beautiful double bedroom. Light and airy, this space is decorated in soft cream patterned wall coverings against newly plastered and neutrally painted walls with soft cream carpeting.
Head on up again and stop by to check out the utility room. This cleverly placed space in the middle of the house is ideal to stash away all the clothes out of sight, with no need to run to the ground floor with all the laundry.
Two more dreamy bedchambers await on the second level. As you rise to the second floor immediately notice the light flooding the stairwell from a cleverly placed glass floor, adding yet another touch of high-spec luxury. Step onto it if you dare before you turn right into a double bedroom that unearths a bare brick fireplace with feature ornate black surround set against a dark blue wall finish.
Finally, let us show you the abundantly sized second master suite tucked away from the rest of the house. This private sanctum is lit with natural light and open views towards Moss Bank Park and the surrounding hills.
