- Universal Design Elements Home in North Carolina are "Doggone" Great
"We want our new home to have a look that is functional but also aesthetically pleasing," my Asheville friends who are about to relocate reported. "You know Dad's in his wheelchair these days and he'll be moving with us. He wants to roll on in to our new home with style. And Dad's determined to have a very nice, high-end bath that is totally accessible!"
Having experience with our own wheelchair-bound Dad, I understood exactly what they desired. And there are a number of such high-accessible design homes in Asheville that I could have shown them, but my friends have a son at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC and they want to be closer to him.
So it was time to put the word out to our REALTOR® colleagues in the Winston-Salem and Mocksville, NC area., which is within a 25-or-so minute (easy) drive of the university. That was just the ticket. It wasn't long until I was previewing a remarkable property.
To me it is the perfect high-accessible design home.And the fact that it is just 20 minutes from Wake Forest University to Mocksville, NC makes great sense. (Far enough, but not too far.) Talk about "rolling in" to the new home in style! And there even is a classy tiled drive-in spa/bath.
Take a look at this photo we took of the great room! (see photo) SEE the fun video my pal and I took of our walk along the totally wheelchair accessible back acreage (3+ acres!) (below)
