Love the place

Transport links are good and it is gated so its safe

Clean and tidy rooms, there is nothing that I don’t like about the flat. Not all the apartments have balconies though which is a shame. Location is good because we are out of the way and so the area isn’t too busy.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Not all properties have balconies and i would prefer one

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Lovely people and work efficiently and professionally
