The home has seven bedrooms all with en-suites (three with showers), a specially adapted bathroom with 'hi-low' bath and walk-in shower, hoists, a lounge, kitchen, dining area and conservatory. Outside there is an enclosed garden and patio area with raised beds to encourage service users who wish to to be able to assist with planting and gardening.
