Derwent House forms part of the development of 49 apartments which were refurbished in the late 1980's. They are known as the Riverside Maltings, and were specifically designed as homes for those aged over 55 years. The Maltings are managed with an on-site management office. There is also a community room for social activities.
The property is a well presented, two bedroom, Grade II listed ground floor apartment which is positioned overlooking the communal courtyard. Offering bright and neutral accommodation, this would make an ideal home for a retiring person or couple.
5 Derwent House offers a well-appointed modern kitchen, a wet room and individually thermostatically controlled oil filled electric radiator heating.
From the communal courtyard, a wooden and partially glazed front door enters into the lobby, with quarry tiled floor and room for hanging coats. A door opens into:
The bright living room, enhanced by dual aspect windows, offers good proportions. With a wall mounted electric fire and two electric radiators, this will undoubtedly be a cosy room. An under-stairs cupboard provides useful storage space and doors at either end access the kitchen and the rear lobby.
Another light room that is situated off the living room, the modern fitted kitchen has white tiled splashbacks as the background to the beech effect wall and base cupboards with co-ordinating worktops. A 'Lamona' electric oven and hob with stainless steel extractor hood over are incorporated as well as a single drainer stainless steel sink unit placed under the window to the rear aspect. Space is provided for an under-counter fridge and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine.
Entered from the living room, the rear lobby has a partially glazed door that leads out to the communal garden and parking areas. Internal doors access both bedrooms and the wet room, as well as the airing cupboard that houses a newly fitted Ariston electric water heater. In addition, there is an electric radiator.
The main bedroom, a good size double, has a window to the front elevation, an electric radiator and provides a good amount of storage by way of a built-in vanity unit as well as overhead space and curtained wardrobe.
This single bedroom has a window to the front aspect and an electric radiator.
This is a modern and well-maintained, fully tiled shower room, with 'Altro' safety flooring and a large walk-in shower with glass screen. There is also a white hand basin set in a vanity unit, with a window over, and a low level WC. Additionally, there is a wall mounted fan heater and an electric heated towel rail.
Oundle is a beautiful, Georgian town with a traditional market place with a range of shops.

Oundle has a vibrant local community and there is always plenty to do. The bus stop is a couple of minutes walk away on the main road.
More extensive services, including mainline rail travel, are available in Peterborough, Corby and Kettering, all of which are between 11 to 15 miles away.
