Pickering is a thriving market town that lies on the A170, Thirsk to Scarborough Road. It has a good range of shops, an active Monday market and amenities that include Doctors surgery, Dentists and Library. There are excellent road links to the neighbouring market towns of Helmsley, Malton and Kirkbymoorside, East Coast and the City of York. Malton has a train station that runs to York, where an intercity service links to London in little over two hours. Willow Court has the advantage of being a very short walk South from the shops in the town centre yet a comfortable walk to Pickering’s surrounding countryside. It comprises 26 mixed properties in a courtyard setting and is part of a managed sheltered housing scheme with a regularly visiting care manager. The development can be occupied by someone over the age of 55 years of age and/or registered disabled.

No. 2 is a well presented, end of terrace, dormer bungalow. Stone built and overlooking the sports fields it stands on the corner of the development with residents parking to its rear. From the entrance hall there is a reasonable sized living room that extends into a fitted kitchen and rear porch. The bungalow has a ground floor wet room and a ground floor bedroom with fitted wall shelving and could just as easily be used as a dining room. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Outside there is visitors and residents parking and communal gardens.
