Situated close to Bury, Lancashire, Birtle Brook is a stunning retirement village from Pinnacle Living.
Set within 60 acres of countryside, Birtle Brook caters for residents over the age of 55 and provides a relaxing, carefree living environment which has a real sense of community at its heart.
Birtle Brook comprises a mix of two-bedroom cottages and apartments, each boasting solid oak doors, hand-crafted stone mullion windows and a range of stunning fixtures and fittings. Each of the cottages includes an outside patio area, with many cottages including accompanying gardens.
In addition to its collection of living spaces, Birtle Brook also includes a restaurant, The Pavilion Bar & Bistro. The restaurant serves up a British menu – including coffee, cakes and cocktails – which combines fine dining with an afternoon tea service. The Pavilion is located on the development’s west side, which is also home to the village’s members-only bowling green.
Keen to expand the offering at Birtle Brook, work is currently underway on a project designed to install additional apartments into the village’s west side. Once work is complete, Birtle Brook will include 60 cottages, alongside its four apartments, restaurant and Crown bowling green.
Work is progressing well on the expansion scheme and is currently on track for a Spring 2015 completion date. The construction of the buildings and the landscaping work has been completed and at present fit-out work is taking place. As work is taking place on the west side of the village, the installation of the new buildings has not caused any disruption to residents.
Construction specialist, RBC Rochdale Ltd is the main contractor on the project, whilst CJ Partnership is providing architectural services.
