OVERVIEW Rotherham Council in partnership with Crucible Sales and Lettings are proud to introduce to the market this brand new site of shared ownership housing located in the ever popular area of Rawmarsh, Rotherham.
The development consists of a range of stylish two and three bedroom homes that provide a well-proportioned living environment whilst remaining affordable. This flexible means of home ownership is likely to appeal to the first time buyer market and those who cannot buy on the open market.
There are two units (both two bedrooms) designed to enhance the lifestyle of those with mobility disabilities with the inclusion of mobility aid turning circles, much more space and wider doorways.
ACCESSIBLE HOMES The accessible homes have level access to allow for wheelchair users to get in and out of the property with ease and the layout is designed to allow a wheelchair user to move around easily with both of the properties offering a lot of space. These well presented homes also offer space for a lift to be fitted if needed. There is also storage for a motorised scooter or wheelchair next to the space for the lift. The downstairs W.C. is DPU (disabled persons unit) compliant as is the first floor bathroom. However, the bathroom does not have a level access shower but does have a lower level shower tray. In the living room there are accessible doors to the garden area. The kitchen units, which are black and white, are standard height however there are more units in these kitchens than in the other plots within the development and more room for further units if required.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Entrance to the accessible properties is gained via a front facing external door into a spacious entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor and also providing access to the kitchen, a large W.C. and two store rooms. The open plan kitchen benefits from a range of gloss effect base and wall units and an integrated electric oven and gas hob with extraction unit. To the rear aspect is the living room with rear facing windows and patio doors leading to the garden.
To the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the Master Bedroom being a large double, and a spacious family bathroom benefitting from a white three piece suite and shower cubicle. The bathroom also provides access into the Master bedroom.
Externally, this lovely home offers two car park spaces and lawns to the front and rear of the property.
