Good proximity to the city centre, while being slightly off the main road which minimises noise. However, the immediate neighbourhood between the main road and the building (200m distance), depending on the time of night can feel unsafe. Good community and neighbourhood security in place for the building. As with any apartment close to the centre, the service charge and ground rent is expensive, but less so that other central developments.
Please review your development:
Beautiful building, excellent apartment layouts maximising space. Having lived in the apartments nearby in other buildings, I’ve found no storage space and a wasteful, illogical design is the norm. Saxton is the opposite, floor to ceiling windows optimise light, the kitchen/lounge layouts are space-saving with sturdy materials used and modern features, The bedrooms are also of a decent size, and it costs very little (surprisingly, considering the size of the windows) to heat the apartment. The allotments are also lovely to stroll through,
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The arrangements of paying the RMG for the service charges – we get sent letters (not emails, in 2020) and if missed e.g. because you’re abroad, you get a hefty late pay fine.
What is the best feature of your home:
The windows, the layout and the quality of the apartment. It was kept in very good condition by the previous owners – I have never moved in to an apartment without having to clean/paint/fix anything before. Proximity to the centre, secure parking.
