The layout and possibilities 

On approaching the building, located in the quiet, residential area of Egham there is ample off-street parking and the entrance is via the professionally built ramp and larger than average wheelchair accessible front door. The halls and passageways within are all designed for wheelchair use. There are three large rooms downstairs with kitchenette and accessible WC, and three rooms upstairs providing for good sized living space, ample storage space and an accessible WC. Whilst the property is ready for habitation, there is also considerable scope for change of layout to suit individual taste.

The property could be lived in with the downstairs as the main living area including bedrooms with the upstairs possibly used for carers or office space. It appears that there is sufficient room for a lift to be installed making the entire house accessible. The arrangement and possible functionality of the building presents many different options for living that could be brought into effect relatively easily and without too much cost.

The location of the property

What makes this even more attractive as an accessible, residential home for wheelchair users is the off-street parking for up to four cars, and that it is enviably situated within five minutes of the mainline station direct to Waterloo, and also Egham High Street. There is no onward chain, leaving the property available for an immediate sale.

Whilst we are not engaged to conduct the sale, we were contacted by the owners of this distinctive property because they would like to offer it first to individuals and organisations involved in promoting accessible housing for disabled people, and recognised us as a major force in this important market. Our role is to match your to this exceptional opportunity.

How accessible is housing for disabled people?

As we specialise in accessible properties, the question we always get asked is “How accessible is housing for disabled people?

There are 13.9 million disabled people in the UK – one in five of the population. Yet only a staggering 7% of homes in England are accessible. This equates to four fifths of disabled people living in unsuitable homes.

In short the answer is not very accessible at all. With most properties, you can’t even get in the front door,  how we’d love to see more properties with the ramp entrances like these shown in this property.  There is plenty of opportunity here for a fully accessible and inclusive home.
