Braunton Accessible Bungalow
The property has 2 bedrooms; one master bedroom with an ensuite wet room, and a twin bedroom. Cupboard space has been cleverly built into the walls to maximise floor space and provide ease of access. The master bed features a Tempur Adjustable Massage bed (non-profiling). This bed is king size and is independently adjustable on either side using wireless remote controls. The single beds in the twin bedroom are electrically adjustable (non-profiling) using a wired handset.
In the ensuite wetroom, you’ll find a shower, WC with rails (with seat raiser available), shower seat, a tilt-in-space chair with a commode, and a stool. A ceiling hoist runs on an H track from the master bedroom to the ensuite wetroom giving access to the WC, shower and basin. There is also a family bathroom with an accessible walk-in bath.
The modern fully-equipped kitchen features a tuck-away oven, dishwasher, height-adjustable sink, height-adjustable hob, remote-controlled extractor fan, and an easy-pour kettle. The beautiful breakfast bar, complete with 2 easy access sockets, creates a wonderfully relaxed space for family cooking and dining.
The spacious open-plan living, dining, and kitchen area is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. In the living area, you’ll find a corner sofa (sofa bed) and an electric riser chair which are centered around a smart TV on an extendable bracket arm.
Garden and Outside Space
The sliding doors from the living area open up onto a sun trap decking area which leads onto the patio and wheelchair-accessible picnic table. The attractive garden wraps right around the property and is fully enclosed to keep dogs secure.
Outside to the right of the sliding doors, you’ll also find a laundry shed with a washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer, and an iron and ironing board.
