Rosemount Valley Suites, an affordable senior’s housing complex, is now accepting tenant applications. The building, located at 231 Tenth Street in Mattawa, is the former Algonquin Nursing Home.

The application is available on Mattawa’s municipal site. Interested applicants must be 55 years or older, prepared to sign a one-year lease, and complete an application in full. The application will be processed by the Property Management Company and not the municipality.

A $100 application deposit is also required, and cheques are payable to Descon Management Group Ltd. Interested applicants can also pay in person by calling 705-472-8749 and pressing 1 to reach the property manager.

“There has been significant interest in the apartments, and we anticipate numerous applications so please be patient” waiting for a response, the Descon Management explained. “You will receive a response as soon as we confirm your information.”

Leases for the apartments are set to start on April 1, May 1, or June 1 of this year, “to allow time for people to give notice or sell homes as required.”

There are four styles of apartments, a studio unit which costs $498 plus $100 for utilities, and a one-bedroom for $651 plus $115 for utilities. The studio is 480 square feet, and the one-bedroom is 580 square feet.

A one-bedroom plus den is available for $701 plus $130 per month for utilities. It is approximately 700 square feet. The two-bedroom units cost $806 plus $140 for utilities and are about 770 square feet.

There are thirty “newly renovated suites” available, and there will be a common laundry facility on site as well. Pets are welcome, although some “restrictions” might apply “based on the type and size” of the animal.

The building also meets all current provincial accessibility standards.
