Apartment 1A is right at the front door and all on the ground floor. It enjoys a straight- out- to sea view….with binoculars provided to add to enjoyment. The sitting room is very large with a leather suite of two chairs plus a two seater sofa, all reclining, and a circular dining table in the bay window. The cream and brown theme makes relaxation easy. The cream kitchen along one wall blends in so as to be barely noticeable. This room has high ceilings adorned with beautiful plasterwork – original features of this Victorian house.
Apartment 1A is suitable for all ages but is hugely popular with slightly older visitors who enjoy its particular benefits. The apartment has a 40 inch smart TV, full HD with freeview and Amazon Fire stick for catch up TV (BBC iplayer, ITV hub, channel 4 and 5), DVD player, video recorder, CD and cassette player, radio and clock radio/alarm.
The new kitchen blends into the lounge with the soft magnolia gloss colour and no-handle doors. It has integrated fridge and dishwasher. To give more worktop space, there is a compact sink and corner microwave. The tall cupboards give more space for storage of food. The under cupboard lights set off the granite patterned worktop.
The bedroom is off the sitting room, it has a fitted dressing table and wardrobe and the beds can be made up as one superking size bed or two twin beds. Again the beautiful plasterwork adorns the ceiling. A carpeted ramp leads to a door to the back yard, and on the other side of this a concrete ramp slopes into the back yard. For visitors with mobility problems this facility is frequently utilised and we allow these visitors a key to the back gate for easy access to their car or simply ease of leaving the building in a step-free manner. (The doors are marginally smaller than specific stated accessibility requirements, but many guests enjoy this apartment and negotiate the doors with ease). The new carpeting is of a flat loop style to ease movement of a wheelchair.
The bathroom is fully tiled in large format, carara marble, porcelain tiles and has a spacious walk-in shower 150x90cm. The electric shower has both an overhead and hand-held shower. The shower seat, normally flush to the wall, folds down easily with a supporting leg and is broad and sturdy with a grab rail to hand. The shower door, in 8mm glass, slides smoothly. The basin has ample space on both sides for toiletries. The floor is warm, highest quality Karndean compressed pvc.
