We are in the process of drawing up an access statement for Myrtle House. Broadly, though, the downstairs of the house can be accessed in a wheelchair as there is a ramp up from the rear parking area. There is also a stair lift in the hall, mounted on the right hand side.
Both showers in the house (one up, one down) are set up as wetrooms with grab rails. The upstairs bath also has a grab rail.
If you require more specific information, please call or contact us using the details on the side of this page.
Other facilities and features
- Telephone – a payphone is available
- Wifi – the house has an internet connection, and wifi is available throughout the house
The Annex is laid out as an open plan area, plus separate bedroom with adjoining bathroom.
The bedroom contains a pair of profiling 3″ beds, one of which is also a rising bed. An overhead hoist links the bedroom to the ensuite bathroom, a specialised wetroom. There is a wall-mounted LCD TV opposite the bed, and bedside lamps.
The ensuite bathroom contains sink, toilet and shower, equipped with shower seat and grab rails. The overhead hoist terminates above the toilet. The wetroom floor is waterproof, meaning there is no step into the shower.
Separate facilities adjoining the dining area contain a toilet, sink and shower.
Kitchen/utility and dining area
The kitchen contains a selection of units, including an electric hob/oven, with space for a wheelchair under the hob and sink.
Kitchen facilities include a fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher and washer/drier.
A round table and 4 chairs is available for use.
The living area contains a large corner sofabed, wall-mounted LCD TV, an armchair, occasional tables and standard lamp.
The Annex contains a separate wifi from the main house. The under-floor heating is controlled through 5 manual thermostats. Throughout the space, lighting is provided by dimmable recessed ceiling-mounted LEDs, combined with a few sidelamps.
All of the space can be accessed either on the flat or via ramps, both within the Annex and its approaches. There is a ramp between the back, living area and the front kitchen and bedrooms. The whole property has been designed to meet national accessibility standards.
There are gardens to front and rear and a patio with garden furniture and a barbecue. There is also a ramp and path for wheelchair users.
There is ample ‘off-road’ parking for several vehicles.
