About the property

The house has nine rooms with an en suite and a one bedroom flat.  Built in 1964, the house was refurbished in 2000.  The house has a warm, cosy atmosphere with a communal lounge and dining room.  There is wifi and a laptop and printer for residents and their families to make use of.

A lovely secluded garden is accessible from the lounge and is enjoyed by the residents in the summer.

There is also a laundry room, two mini kitchens for making a drink and two assisted bathrooms.

We provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents can remain as independent as possible.  It’s a home from home with support when you need it from our professional and caring house staff and volunteers.

This house is managed by Abbeyfield York.
