Permit plans for next week’s application are on the way! After a permit we will begin construction of Ridgeview Place, a home for those with special needs at Lake Chelan! That’s exciting. After the visit to the city, it will be time to plan a bit of a groundbreaking ceremony…
The home at Ridgeview Place in Chelan is something special. It is far beyond a “basic” home. It is a luxurious, warm and beautiful place to be for anybody, but particularly for adults with special needs. It is set on almost 3 1/2 acres of property that is just a 15 minute walk into downtown Chelan. The views are spectacular.
The main floor is over 4600 square feet. It has a “great room” type of living space with a kitchen, living and dining area that is open and captures the views. The great room also has a dramatic fireplace and opens to covered outdoor living spaces as well.
The large kitchen has slab countertops, commercial type of appliances, a spacious island and double dishwashers. A Costco sized pantry space with a second refrigerator and freezer is right off the kitchen.
A raised floor theater room with surround sound is also included. Each resident room is large, with room for a bed of choice, desk and additional chairs. There is a walk-in closet and private bathroom for every resident as well.
The laundry room has two sets of washers and dryers as well as a wash-tub and plenty of work space.
The main floor includes a powder room convenient to the great room and kitchen and a carefully located care-givers’ quarters with its own sitting room, living room, bedroom, walk-in closet, bathroom and covered deck.
The lower floor includes a fitness room, 6 heated storage spaces, an additional laundry center, bathroom and two additional rooms for visiting families, guests, interns or caregivers space.
