A new way of living in Sowerby

A new assisted living development in Sowerby, North Yorkshire is proving popular with local over-55s who are taking positive steps in planning for their futures.

Herriot Gardens

19 Apr 2016

Comprising 26 two-bedroomed bungalows and 64 one and two-bedroomed apartments for sale, shared ownership and rent, properties at Herriot Gardens are now available.

Designed for people with differing care needs, a range of living styles are possible - from fully independent to 24 hour, on-site support.

The properties for sale are being marketed by Linden Homes. Sales Manager, Julie Warburton, said: “People who purchase here are not just buying a property, they are buying into a lifestyle and community where they can have independence but peace of mind and access to great facilities.

“Many of our buyers don’t have a specific care requirement at present but are thinking to the future and are comfortable knowing that support is on-hand should it be needed.”

The buildings are constructed so that adaptations can be made, to allow easier access and mobility – ensuring people can live safely, securely and as independently as possible into later life.

The three storey apartment block includes a communal area on each floor, an attractive garden room and residents’ car park. All homes, including the bungalows, feature graded and level access and wet room-style bathrooms, to offer enhanced accessibility.

Julie continued: “Herriot Gardens offers modern, attractive homes in a village-style environment designed to foster a vibrant community for older people. There is a café/bistro for residents to enjoy and people can live independent lives in their own homes, with more choice and control over their support needs.”

The scheme is being delivered by Galliford Try Partnerships North – Linden’s parent company – alongside the Thirteen Group and in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council.

Prices start from £196,500 and shared ownership properties and homes for rent are also available.
