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.
Hollis Court is ideally located on Castle Howard Road in the market town of Malton. The town centre is approximately 450 yards from the development and has lots of small traditional independent shops. The market place has recently become a meeting area with a number of coffee bars and cafes opening all day to complement the local public houses. Malton holds a market every Saturday, as well as a farmers market which is led once a month. Malton railway station is just half a mile away and pretty walks along the River Derwent are also nearby.
The front door, with spy hole and letterbox, leads to the entrance hall where there are illuminated light switches, a smoke detector, the apartment's security door entry system and the 24-hour Tunstall emergency response pull cord system. There is a door to a large walk-in storage cupboard/airing cupboard which is shelved and houses the boiler. Further doors lead to the lounge, bedroom and bathroom.
The living room benefits from a westerly facing Juliet balcony which enjoys views over the landscaped side gardens. A feature electric fire with surround creates an attractive focal point to the room and there is space for dining. There are TV and telephone points and a Sky/Sky+ connection point; two ceiling lights, raised electric power sockets and a wall-mounted electric heater. A partially glazed door leads into the separate kitchen.
