Parking is available in the rear of the building. A ramp to the back vestibule makes the short walk easy. Entering the Victorian home you are first struck with the spaciousness of the well lit chandeliered wide hall with its 12’ ceiling and elaborate crown moldings. The natural wood doors with wide trim open to public areas, as well as several private and semi-private bedrooms. It’s warm and inviting gracious ambiance welcomes you. Our double parlor, with nine foot windows and fireplace, is where a lot of activity takes place; the piano is ready for impromptu sing-a-longs as well as much anticipated entertainer’s visits. The dining room features small tables with arm chairs for intimate dinners. Our ladies smell the delicious food being prepared in our stainless steel immaculate kitchen that is off the dining room. The resident care aide station is handily off the dining room. This floor has a walk in shower. The sunroom is also off the dining room. You may want to use this sun warmed cozy space for private family gatherings. Off the sunroom is the famous porch, a favorite spot of many ladies. The porch has a great view of our iron gated courtyard complete with flower beds and central fountain. Many ladies like to take the courtyard ramp down to wander the brick path and smell the roses. Some flower beds are at seat height; no stooping required, for those who like to garden themselves!
The second floor can be accessed by a wide staircase or by the attendant operated lift; an option most ladies prefer. The second floor hall is as tall and wide as the first floor hall and also well lit, twenty four hours a day. Private bedrooms flank the hall. This floor has a wonderful Cadillac tub; no climbing in and out- just open the door and sit back for a long massaging soak. The second floor also has several offices, including the Administrator’s, and the hair salon.
Each carpeted bedroom is about 10’ x 12’ and has at least one very large window, most with original shutters. All have very large lockable closets with a shelf. The room will hold a twin bed, a dresser, a small table, lamp and easy chair. There is ample room for an additional piece like a desk, dresser or shelving. We can provide furniture or she can bring her own as she would to a new apartment. The rooms are cable and phone ready. We do have WiFi. As in any home, the bedroom is a private space. Ladies are encouraged to use the whole house; take meals in the dining room, watch TV in the parlor, visit in the halls, etc.
