Heles Terrace

Two rows of historic Almshouse buildings that have been modernised to offer good quality housing. There are 28 ground floor and 30 first floor self contained flats. All flats have their own bedroom, living room, fitted kitchen and private bathroom with a converted ‘wet room’ shower. A walled garden in the rear with benches and planting offers sanctuary and community to residents.

All Heles Terrace flats have a new central heating and hot water system, which combined with full double glazing and insulation makes the properties very economical to run. There are also Smoke Detectors and ample raised power points. There is a guest room nearby that is available for use by family and friends.

Management Services
The Almshouses were built by a charity founded by Mr Elize Hele. The Charity is administered by a voluntary board of Trustees. Day to day administration is carried out by a part-time Manager and Assistant who work from an office on site.

Warden and Caretaker
There is a resident Warden who will deal with emergencies and maintenance problems. All flats are connected to the Emergency Alarm who provide an emergency response service outside of his working hours.
