Hollis Court was built by McCarthy & Stone purpose built for retirement living. The development consists of 49 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. The dedicated House Manager is on site during working hours to take care of things and make you feel at home. There's no need to worry about the burden of maintenance costs as the service charge covers the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, external window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates and security systems. All energy costs of the laundry room, homeowners lounge and other communal areas are also covered in the service charge. For your peace of mind the development has audio door entry and 24-hour emergency call systems, should you require assistance. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability). It is a condition of purchase that residents must meet the age requirement of 60 years or over.
