Somerset is a beautiful county in the south of England, with plenty to offer any prospective home buyers. The county has lush green fields and an abundance of wildlife, with some areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). For those looking for that quintessential English countryside experience, Somerset is hard to beat. With rolling hills, picturesque villages, and a wealth of activities on offer, prospective home buyers would be wise to consider this beautiful county.
Local to the area so knew what it was like prior to buying. Brilliant transport links to bigger towns and beaches. Street is nice and quiet.
Have been some anti social issues partially due to the sales staff not informing us we’d be near social housing, and the social housing company don’t seem to vet any tenants.
Please review your development:
Ever since we walked into the show homes we loved the houses. Whether it a bungalow, 4 bed or 3 bed they all feel so spacious. We went for a 3 bed being a first home and couldn’t really ask for more as it’s very generously sized. Have a decent driveway for at least two cars with easy access to park on street. Very large garden which isn’t quite so common on new builds these days.
The road conditions though on the estate however has at times been near on un drivable however the site team deem it adequate. The road is full of potholes and bumps which even at 2 mph feel horrendous. The site team keep promising the road will be finished however every time they don’t deliver or do as they say. Then when you chase you get ‘selective responses’. Driving through the conditions just quite frankly frustrate us so much as you have a lovely home however at times have had to park on the road due to not being to able to get through, and then the groundworkers make you feel like you’re getting on their way.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
House has a lot of extras as standard where other developers would need to pay additional. Would be nice to see the options list prior as the sales lady we seen when buying told us there wasn’t a list we could see…
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Within the first 8 weeks when you have meetings with the site manager excellent. However site manager has left now and when you go via customer service you have to be prepared to chase and chase and chase as they don’t seem to pickup emails or follow up on anything.
