Show more "In a joint venture with Helena Extra, MHA provides a new opportunity for independent living, together with the availability of round-the clock care, in Newton-le-Willows, part of the borough of St Helens.

The 14 million pound Heald Court Farm scheme comprises 86 two-bedroom apartments, with a variety of designs – some with balconies, terraces or gardens. Each apartment is suitable for wheelchair access. Together with three bungalows, the apartments are grouped around communal and leisure facilities, which form the heart of the development and include a café, lounge, health and wellbeing centre, and landscaped gardens.

MHA manages Heald Farm Court on behalf of Helena Extra, which is offering apartments for rent, shared ownership and purchase.
The local town centre is just five minute walk away, offering a wide range of shops, banks and eating places, as well as a market with a tradition that stretches back over several centuries. St Helens and Warrington town centres are also easily accessible via frequent bus services." Show less
