Located in Middle Deepdale, overlooking the picturesque Deepdale Nature Reserve, ‘Sandcastles’ is the first development of its kind in the area from specialist developer Later Living by Lovell.

The Sandcastles development offers a completely new style of exclusive living, featuring a mix of spaciously built and beautifully designed two and three bedroom cottages, country apartments, chalets and townhouses, all to suit a range of individual lifestyle aspirations and budgets.

Paula Broadbent, Managing Director of Later Living by Lovell, said: “We are delighted to have our flagship Sandcastles development now open and can’t wait to share our beautiful homes with our customers.

“There is a huge demand for suitable housing in Scarborough suitable for later life, and properties at Sandcastles provide an ideal solution for people to have peace of mind when considering their next move.

“We pride ourselves on designing homes from our customers’ point of view, incorporating a range of hidden design features that provide reassurance that no matter what life holds in the future, their home will suit their needs.

“Our goal is to create a community where like-minded people live peacefully alongside an existing and evolving community of multi-generational housing, additional care housing and a brand new school, in homes of modern design and lifelong ambition.

“The development is the culmination of decades of valuable experience and insights and we look forward to seeing a real sense of community created and nurtured at Sandcastles.”

Revolutionizing housing options for individuals in later life, Later Living by Lovell’s unique approach to home design provides a highly desirable and practical option for potential last-time buyers.

All properties include adaptable ‘hidden’ features, allowing homes to be easily changed without the need and cost of major works as individual needs change, providing an ideal solution for those looking to move with one eye to the future.

Innovative features include easy ‘detachable’ panels and concealed mounting points and wiring, allowing for easy room reconfiguration if more spacious access is required. Alternative drainage infrastructure also exists, allowing bathrooms to be easily converted into wet rooms if the need arises.

All homes at Sandcastles also benefit from level access allowing for easy movement in and out of the properties.

Beyond the structural features, covert monitoring and assistive technology via sensors and equipment can easily be added to homes when taking advantage of the smart technology infrastructure that is built into all home designs.

This technology also provides smart lighting, heating and window dressing that are easy to program and control.

Properties in Sandcastles are available for sale on a freehold basis with no management fees or hidden charges and no building codes in place, other than the requirement that you be 55 or over to live in the homes.

Prices start at £235,000 for a two-bedroom bungalow, and all customers who book during September can take advantage of a range of festive promotions, including a ‘helping hands’ service that takes the stress and costs out of selling your existing home; Choice of conveyance duty (limit applicable), stamp duty or free carpet.
