What is barrier free living? Encino

Imagine a home you can grow old in.  Imagine raising your children and retiring all in the same place, a multigenerational home in which your parents can visit and even stay without the worry of having to climb stairs or getting into and out of that tub/shower combo safely.   Eliminating the barriers of daily living for those with disabilities is the name of our game and our plan for this home at 5041 Odessa. This next year Gamburd, Inc. invites you to join us on our journey to build the ultimate, luxury, fully accessible, custom home.  This 2 story, coastal traditional, universally designed home will feature all the comforts and luxuries required for easy retirement living.  Aside from the usual elements of a custom built smart home, 5041 Odessa will feature:
  • Elevator
  • Fully accessible, barrier-free showers
  • Widened doorways for wheelchair accessibility
  • No thresholds
  • No other steps
  • Home automation
