Country Manor in Sartell is about to expand yet again – this time with “The Waterford of Country Manor,” which will be a 45-unit apartment building for seniors.
Ground was recently broken south of the main campus for the facility. The spacious units are either one- or two-bedroom apartments ranging in size from 811 to 1,400 square feet. They include in-floor heating, tuck-under garages, central air conditioning, built-in microwave ovens, dishwashers, clothes washers and clothes dryers.
Tenants will be able to choose units with one or two bathrooms, which will feature glass-enclosed showers, ceramic tile walls, mirror lighting and – in some units – a walk-in Jacuzzi.
Tenants on the ground floor will have private patios. Those on the second floor will have private decks.
In-common areas at the Waterford include areas for entertaining and social functions and an on-site restaurant.
The rent will include access to any and all services provided at the Country Manor campus, such as rehabilitation, clinic, bank, pharmacy and chapel. Rent will also include the cost of telephone internet, television and access to social clubs, transportation, wellness programs and a ’round-the-clock emergency medical-response system.
The Waterford is expected to open in spring 2014.
