10 SERENITY DRIVE – guide to disabled access
When the home was built we added a first floor bedroom and full bath. The access to the front of the house is possible in a wheel chair. It is over two low decks of 10″ each to the front porch and then into the house. There are a total of four ten inch steps to gain access to the house. Once inside there are normal door widths throughout the first floor level. There is a teak hand grab in the garage for access up these stairs to the family room. This garage entrance is not suitable for wheelchair access.
The back deck has to be accessed over a sliding door threshold and then down 10″ to the main deck. Another 10″ step accesses the rest of the deck area.
The installation of ramps or additional handles would be the responsibility of the buyer / tenant. The landlord would give permission for reasonable improvements and accommodations.
Tenants must, at there own cost, add any further modifications to the home. These can be discussed directly with the landlord to see if the house will work for your needs.
The neighborhood is accessible for wheel chairs and the Lighthouse View and Compton View roads describe an easy loop with easy to manage grade changes at the the South and North ends of the loop. There are good sidewalks throughout the neighborhood and light traffic.
The front first floor shower is a tub shower but it is large and easy to access. The outside shower is large and a wheel chair will fit inside of it. Again there are no ramps.
