Alder View Court is purpose built by McCarthy & Stone for retirement living and has won both gold awards for National Housing for Older People Award 2019 and best Commercial Garden Award 2018. The development consists of 42 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. You can relax, knowing that there's a House Manager on hand during office hours as well as the added benefit of having security features. These include a 24 hour emergency call system should you require assistance and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's calling before letting them in.
There's no need to worry about being weighed down by maintenance costs either as the service charge covers the cost of external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, water rates, security and energy costs of the homeowners lounge with kitchen facilities and other communal areas.

"Alder View is a superb, prize winning, friendly community, our excellent House Manager and the 24 hour careline has given us peace of mind and reassurance as help is only a call away.
Before Covid we had weekly films, seated fitness classes, card and board games, monthly fish and chips, also occasional theatre trips and celebration meals .
Scalby is a great place to live, with excellent local facilities and superb transport links.
McCarthy and Stone have gone above and beyond in their efforts to keep us safe at this unprecedented time, nothing is ever too much trouble.
We will be very sorry to leave Alder View but need to move nearer to our family."
