Access Statement
This apartment occupies part of the first and second floors of a 1970s built block of 12 single- and two-storey apartments.  The block is accessed from the adjacent main road by a minor road which also serves the Ffestiniog Railway station and the South Snowdon Wharf flats.  Each apartment has its own marked parking bay, cordoned off from the roadway by detachable white chains.  That for 84 is parallel to the road, adjacent to the external staircase and landing by which the flat is reached.  Outside lights switch on at dusk until approximately midnight.

A single flight of wooden stairs (first step rise 26 cm, others 19-20 cm) with hand rails both sides, takes you up to the wooden landing which serves flats 83, 84 and 85. Entry to the property is through a 76 cm wide doorway, with raised sill (14 cm high, 17 cm wide) to step over. The first floor is flat and open plan in design - kitchen area with tiled floor (and level access to WC in passageway off), a wooden staircase up in centre, then living and dining areas with wooden laminate flooring. A covered balcony (tiled underfoot) is reached via patio doors, with a single step over the 25 cm wide sill (9 cm high, but then down a further 12 cm).

The staircase, with steps of 24 cm depth and 20 cm rise, has a wooden handrail on the right (and also on the left for two-thirds of the way) and leads to the upper floor.  There is an additional fixed grab handle on the left as you near the top. Two twin bedrooms are reached by turning right at the top, as is the shower/WC room.  The very spacious master bedroom (with its own shower cubicle) is to the left at the top of the stairs. Both shower cubicles require the user to step up into them. The ensuite shower requires a step up of 26 cm, then down 10 cm. That in the shower/WC room has a step up of 19cm, with depth 23 cm, before then stepping up 6 cm and down 11 cm to negotiate the sill.  Flooring is wood laminate, as in the downstairs living area, and access is level with the exception of the second covered balcony.  This is reached, as before, via patio doors with a sill and step down. Plastic chairs are provided for use on the balconies.

Light switches throughout the property are at around 140 cm, and are a mixture of wall switches and pull cords. Electric sockets and heater switches are 35-40 cm above the flooring, with the exception of those at work top level in the kitchen. Each bed has its own spot light for reading, individually switched at the base of the light. All rooms are well lit with ceiling lights. An emergency light is fitted at the top of the stairwell, which comes on in case of power failure. A small torch is provided next to the circuit boards adjacent to the downstairs WC.

Both the living room and master bedroom are equipped with flat screen TVs with Freeview, with remote control handsets. A DVD/video player is also provided in the living room.  The property is not connected to a telephone network. Cooking is by electricity. The freezer is at floor level with the fridge above it.
