Danes Dyke is off Scalby Road Newby (Y12 6UG). It is on a main bus route to Scarborough town centre which is approximately two miles away. The scheme is within easy reach of local shops and facilities including Proudfoots supermarket, a library, bank and doctors surgery.
Danes Dyke offers 42 self-contained flats in a two storey building around a courtyard. Stairs to the first floor are wide enough to take a stair lift if required. All the flats are designed to enable residents to live independently in a safe, inclusive environment. Properties benefit from gas warm air central heating and double glazing. The scheme is supported by a government grant of 30%. This enables purchasers to acquire 70% interest in the value of the property on a 60 year leasehold for the elderly scheme.
Communal facilities and services
Danes Dyke is set in attractive communal gardens and there is non-allocated parking around the development. The scheme has a community room. The flats are linked to the central warden care services run by Scarborough Borough Council 24 hours a day. An active residents group meets monthly in the Danes Dyke Community Centre. The group organises social events and activities for residents. These include fortnightly bingo sessions and fundraising coffee mornings.
