The property is accessed through the front door, which is 70cm wide and adjacent to the parking area. The door opens onto a small landing area, via two steps of 18cm in height. Guests will then ascend to the reception area up six steps, of no more than 20cm in height each, to the main landing. There is a handrail on the left hand side when ascending the stairs.
