Opening this summer, Castlestead View by Housing 21, has a selection of one- and two-bedroom apartments for social rent or shared ownership, and two-bedroom bungalows for outright sale.

Offering the best of both worlds, you’ll enjoy the privacy of your own home plus have access to a range of fantastic facilities right on your doorstep, including a café/bistro, on-site hair salon, beautifully landscaped gardens and communal lounge. So, whether you prefer relaxing in your own space, catching up with friends over coffee, or taking part in group activities and social events, Castlestead View really is the perfect choice – and you can even bring your pets along too.

Nestled in a fantastic location in the peaceful village of Oxenholme, Castlestead View is just a mile from the handy supermarkets, cafes and shops of Kendal, and there are fabulous views of the surrounding scenery from vantage points across the development.

And whether you choose an apartment or bungalow, all of the homes have been built to high quality standards, including carpets throughout all living areas, quality fitted kitchens and level-access showers.

The added benefit of Castlestead View is the Extra Care service it offers to residents. This enables residents to continue living independently in their own home, but with the peace of mind that having help on hand brings.

Extra Care is for anyone over the age of 55*. You don’t have to currently have a care need; you may just be looking to downsize into more suitable accommodation, move nearer to family or are just planning ahead for your future. Or you may be living as a couple where only one of you requires care and need a little help. Unlike care homes, where you would need to live separately, Extra Care enables you to continue living together with support from our Care Workers, ensuring you can concentrate on enjoying your time together.

If you, or a family member want to find out more about the fantastic new homes available at Castlestead View, then why not come along to the exclusive Launch Event at Kendal Town Hall on Thursday 27th January at 11am and 2pm.
