La Fresnaie is a modern detached house on a ¼ acre plot, adjacent to our two other holiday cottages and to our home. Surrounded by mature hedgerows, the house has been designed and built to ensure the highest level of accessibility for disabled guests. Furnished to a high standard, the ground floor of La Fresnaie is all on one level, with tiled floors throughout.
The front and kitchen doorways are wide enough for wheelchair access – and there is sufficient room for manoeuvring with ease inside the house. The large, open-sided garage has room for two cars, with covered access to the front door and the ground floor of the house straight from the garage, which ensures protection from the weather all year round. On the same level as the house and garage are a west-facing, covered terrace and a south-facing open terrace. Equipped with garden furniture and a barbecue, both terraces are accessible from the house via the front and kitchen doors.
From the covered terrace, the front door of La Fresnaie opens into a large living room with a dining area. A Godin wood-burning stove provides cosy warmth for this room during the cooler months of the year. In addition, the whole house has electric central heating, using either radiant panels or convectors, all with electronic thermostats. The fitted kitchen is equipped with a washing machine, a dishwasher, a fridge-freezer, a microwave oven and other smaller kitchen appliances.
The kitchen has been designed with wheelchair access in mind and includes a mid-level oven, a low-level ceramic hob and low-level preparation surfaces. There are 2 bedrooms and a wetroom on the ground floor – and two further bedrooms and a second bathroom on the first floor. Bedroom 1 on the ground floor has twin beds. Either can be raised to provide more height to facilitate the use of a hoist, which we can hire locally if required. Bedroom 2 (also on the ground floor) has a super-king-size bed, which may be divided to create two large single beds.
