What: A basic template for a disabled-access house. In pristine condition, this rancher looks like a model home. “I’ve had more interest in this house than any of our other houses,” says the realtor – an indication of the rapidly emerging  market for houses where aging baby boomers can stay in place despite physical limitations.  The current owners designed the house for their disabled daughter, and while every aspect of her needs has been accommodated, the house does not look or feel like a “handicapped house.” The entrance ramp is under the carport, and is not visible from the street. Inside, the spaces are open, and the hallways are wide, allowing a comfortable turning radius for a wheelchair.  Walk though the front door, past the living room into an open, spacious kitchen where the family can be together. Nice finishes and appliances – hardwood and ceramic tile floors, granite counters — make it feel luxurious, and large windows look out onto a sunny backyard. There are two good-sized bedrooms on the main floor, one with an extra large en suite bathroom and big roll-in shower. A shower chair, hand-held faucet and grab bars all aid in accessibility. Built-in storage and shelving (with low-reach availability) here and thoughout the house accommodate large equipment and keep down clutter. The downstairs is another large open space — a great family room or in-law suite. Everything is bright and clean, really like a new house. Read More →
