The Laureates

The Laureates, Newgate Street, Cottingham, HU16 4DY

property description



The Laureates was purpose built by McCarthy & Stone for retirement living. The development consists of 32 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s.
A House Manager is on hand during office hours and there is the benefit of security features including a 24-hour emergency call system and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's calling before letting them in.
The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family. If your guests have travelled from afar, they can book into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).
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.
The apartment benefits from underfloor heating throughout, is in very good decorative condition and is conveniently located next to the homeowners lounge.

Local Area

The Laureates is located in the historic village of Cottingham. Cottingham boasts two main shopping streets with all the amenities you need including a Co-op supermarket, a Sainsburys Local and a post office. It has a weekly market, a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants, and for those who like to keep active, its own Golf and Leisure club.
Cottingham Medical Centre is located close by on South Street and Castle Hill Hospital is only a mile and a half away on the edge of the village.
The Laureates is well located and offers easy access to the village centre as well as public transport to take you further afield. North and South bus stops are located right outside the development connecting you to Hull and Beverley.
There are good transport links both by road and rail with two main trunk roads, A1079 and A164, providing easy access to the surrounding towns both north and south of Cottingham and Cottingham Railway Station which runs between Hull and Scarborough.
