property description


Lonsdale Park

Lonsdale Park in Oakham is located close to the heart of this historic town, in central England. Situated opposite picturesque parklands, the development boasts 43 apartments exclusively for those over 60s. Oakham is found in the county of Rutland, an area that was voted as the ‘best rural place to live in Britain’ by the Daily Telegraph in 2015. With its array of green parks and fields, yet close to the town centre for great shopping and restaurant scene, and beautiful historic architecture, it’s easy to see why this pretty traditional market town is the place to be.
The apartments are all equipped with energy efficient heating and raised height electrical sockets.
