property description

Description

This is a wonderful 'river view' apartment located on the second floor of the sought-after Rivers Edge development. The apartment has a private balcony from which the River outlook and the constant activity of the wildlife whose habitats are around the wooded river bank can be enjoyed. The apartment is located at the end of a hallway with no accommodation to one side or above and therefore affords a great deal of privacy. The roomy accommodation offers; a welcoming living room with access to the balcony, excellent fitted kitchen also enjoying a river view, good sized main bedroom and spacious second bedroom. A lift service gives access to the excellent communal facilities of the development. WE STRONGLY URGE A SPEEDY VIEWING.

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.

ENTRANCE HALL

Of a good size with space for typical hall furniture, having a solid entrance door with spy-hole. Security intercom system that provides both a visual (via the home-owners TV) and verbal link to the main development entrance door. Emergency pull cord, electric panel heater, walk-in store/airing cupboard with shelving, light and Gledhill boiler supplying hot water. Further walk-in cupboard with light and shelving and concealed 'Vent Axia' system.

LIVING ROOM

A bright and cheery room due to the predominantly southerly aspect and where the first inclination is to walk toward the French door to admire the fantastic outlook. The mature riverbank trees are a haven for wildlife adding to the viewing pleasure. There is a focal point fireplace with an inset electric fire as well as an electric panel heater. Glazed-panelled double doors lead to the kitchen and the double-glazed French door opens onto the lovely balcony.

BALCONY

A lovely balcony providing a really pleasant open outlook over the River Okement below and within earshot of its flowing waters. There is the great opportunity to watch wildlife that exist along the riverbank and among the mature trees. There is a genuine rural feel here that makes it hard to remember just how conveniently placed you are to the excellent facilities just a short walk away. This is a southerly aspect ensuring the very best of any sunshine.
