Individual detached modern house with disabled access on the ground floor

The property was built in 2006/2007, and is a part colombage detached house which has been purpose built to offer quality accommodation with full disabled access on the ground floor.  Attention to detail is evident in the property ,which is let as a holiday home for clients with disabilities or mobility issues.  The car port is wide enough and long enough to exit from a vehicle from either side, or from the rear.  The floor of the garage is coated with an anti-slip paint.  Access from the garage to the front door of the house is completely flat and under cover.  The terrace areas on two adjoining sides of the house are also on the same level as the ground floor (and the garage).  The ground-floor living area is all on one level and has a tiled floor. The front door and internal doors on the ground floor have 83cm openings and all provide “straight-in” access.  The wet-room and ground-floor bedrooms are large enough to ensure wheelchair manoeuvrability.  Turning circles are a minimum of 1.5m and beds can be approached from either side.  The ground floor bedroom windows are lower than normal.  The wet-room shower area is large enough (2.5m2) to accommodate a wheelchair and there is a drop-down seat. Hand rails are fitted around the walls. The floor has non-slip tiles, both in the shower area and in the room itself. The WC is 49cm high, with a drop-down rail to the open side and a hand rail on the wall side. The hand basin is 76cm from ground level and a wheelchair can be manoeuvred close to it.   The kitchen has dual-level working surfaces. On one wall, the sink, washing machine and dishwasher have a 92cm worktop. The hob is positioned at a height of 76cm, with work surfaces on both sides. The oven is at a height of 72cm, with a 76cm work surface alongside, on which stands the electric kettle. The staircase is wide (90cm) and has handrails on both sides, which also extend 33cm beyond the steps at the top and the bottom. In addition, the leading edges of the wooden stair treads are made of white ash wood to make them more visible.  All light switches are lower – and sockets are higher – for ease of use. 

There is the opportunity to buy an adjacent, beautiful gîte complex next door with a main house, attached gîte and farmhouse with 2 hectares of land.  Click here for further details.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated about 3km from the pretty village of Céaucé in the Orne department of Normandy with a communal lake and its own astronomical observatory.  Easy access  to a bakery, a butcher, delicatessen, a small supermarket, newsagents, schools, hairdresser, bank, health centre and chemists, two bars and a restaurant and other small shops.  There is a small market in the village on Thursday mornings.  The Medieval Town of Domfront and Lassay-les-Châteaux are 12km away and Mayenne is 20 km.  The department capital at Alençon is 53 km.    The UNESCO site of  Mont St Michel is 67 km away, the Old Town of Le Mans is 81 km and the major city of Caen is 82 km affording regular access via ferry to the UK.
