Accessibility Done Right
Stunning woodwork and attention to detail highlight features of this gorgeous home. Nestled in a quiet wooded subdivision within Joliet, Illinois, stands this majestic house surrounded by over 150 species of birds and numerous wildlife.
Stanton Architects, Inc. worked closely with the owners for a year to build an accessible home for their live-in elderly parents. This home allowed the owners to lovingly nurse and enjoy the remaining years of their parent’s lives and allows the owners to age in place if they choose.
Special features include wide hallways, large rooms, and en-suite bathrooms with grab bars, comfort height toilets, walk-in tub, shower spray units, and sinks with knee clearance. The kitchen has a lowered breakfast bar to allow for wheelchairs. Convenient drawers underneath hold medicine and personal items. Two stair lifts transport up/down stairs. The laundry room has a raised washer/dryer and a work light mounted in a cabinet illuminating the ironing board. Their mother enjoyed ironing and was able to feel productive.
“My father at 101 years old, a builder by trade, said our home is the most beautiful he’d ever seen! We trust John’s vast knowledge, creativity, design experience, and his amazing ability to listen and suggest ideas. Stanton Architects, Inc. helped us choose beautiful, high-quality materials for our custom home.”
