Heslington Court sheltered housing scheme is located in the village of Heslington, about three miles to the south east of York, close to the University of York.
The scheme comprises twenty, two-bedroomed flats and four one- bedroomed flats all contained in a 2 storey building. Each flat has warm-air gas-fired central heating.
Communal facilities include a residents' lounge and laundry. The scheme has a resident scheme manager and is linked to an intercom system for emergencies.
The scheme is supported by a government grant of 30% of the cost which enables a purchaser to acquire up to 70% interest in the value of the property on a 99 year lease. All residents pay a monthly service charge, which is reviewed each July.
