Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
The recently completed 3,100-square-foot executive ranch home was designed to make life easier for a disabled family member, who was restricted to a wheelchair. The home, which is situated on 1.5 acres in the Watersedge Subdivision of Lisbon in Waukesha County, is now available for purchase from Roy Scholtka of Coldwell Banker HomeSale Realty in Lisbon.
In the fall of 2009, the Legg family sat down with an architect to design a 3,100-square-foot, energy-efficient home around the needs of their adult daughter, Michele, who was restricted to a wheelchair. Now complete, the executive ranch home on 1.5 acres in the gorgeous Watersedge Subdivision of Lisbon is a dream-come-true for a family caring for a loved one with mobility issues.
The beautifully appointed three-bedroom, three-bath Waukesha County handicapped accessible home features flush entrances to the home, wheelchair-friendly flooring, four-foot-wide hallways and three-foot-wide doors. The large open-concept kitchen and great room has plenty of space to maneuver a wheelchair.
The special open concept bedroom was designed to function like a luxury hotel room that flows into a large bathroom containing a 5’ X 6’ roll-in shower with hand-held showerhead. Other amenities include a built-in changing table, ADA toilet, and custom roll-in closet.
The most unique feature of this bedroom is the custom truss built into the ceiling that allows for the use of a lift. This lift enables the disabled family member to be carried from the bed to the toilet, shower and changing table without family members and caretakers having to bear the weight.
“Sadly, Michele passed away at her adult daycare program before the home was completed,” said Roy Scholtka, Waukesha County real estate broker and owner of Coldwell Banker HomeSale Realty. “The family moved ahead and completed construction and landscaping of this stunning property, but they now want to pass it on to another family who can benefit from its unique design.”
The Wausheka County wheelchair accessible home features a private pond and a split bedroom plan with two oversized master suites. The open concept living space features hickory floors and tray ceilings. The cook’s kitchen features custom French country cabinetry, travertine back-splashes, Kohler fixtures, and a large island overlooking the living room. Other features include a dinette with a wet bar, formal dining room, computer room, laundry room, foyer and mudrooms.
