property description

Description

This is a super 'River view' apartment with its own private balcony located on the first floor of the sought-after Rivers Edge development. Lift that also provide access to the excellent facilities of the development. This is a rather spacious apartment with Living room, well equipped kitchen with appliances, two excellent bedrooms and age-friendly bathroom.

Constructed in early-2010 by award-winning retirement home specialists McCarthy and Stone, River's Edge Court is a ‘Retirement Living’ development providing a quality-of-lifestyle opportunity for the over 60’S and designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent House Manager who oversees the smooth running of the development. As the development name implies it is in a tranquil Riverside setting adjacent to the River Okement with mature trees and shrubs around, yet unbelievably only around half a mile from Okehampton High Street and even closer to a Waitrose Supermarket and other more immediate facilities. The property enjoys excellent communal facilities including a homeowner’s lounge, laundry, scooter store and landscaped gardens. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.

It’s so easy to make new friends and to lead a busy and fulfilled life at River's Edge Court; there are always plenty of regular activities to choose, typically including; regular coffee mornings, knitting group, yoga, mah-jong, French group, and organised coach trips among others. Whilst there is something for everyone there is certainly no obligation to participate and home owners can ‘dip in and out’ of activities or remain as private as they wish.
