There are 42 one and two bed apartments at this estate in Durham. Residents benefit from the use of shared gardens and a guest room for visiting friends and family. The regular coffee mornings and scrabble clubs give an opportunity to socialise with other residents, should you wish to do so.
You won’t have to worry about buildings and grounds maintenance or repairs as an on-site manager looks after these points, as well as helping you to access further help and support if you need it. The development is only a short walk from the scenic River Wear.
