South East England is the third-largest of the official regions of England by area, and has the highest population of all the regions. Stretching to the west as far as the Isle of Wight and Hampshire, right across to the tip of Kent and curling around London up to Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, the South East benefits from its close connection with the capital and the national transport network. It also offers residents close proximity to the continent and swift international connections via the Channel Tunnel, Gatwick and Heathrow on its border with Greater London.
Good: right in the town centre: literally 5 min walk from Reading Station, big Sainsbury’s supermarket right next door, a lot of bars, cafes, restaraunt and coffeshops all around.
Bad: construction of other blocks are underway so you can hear construction noises sometimes.
Please review your development:
This is a new build, so you can expect that everything is very modern. The facilities are top-notch – programmable hot water boiler, electric radiators that you can operate remotely and set up a schedule, ventilation with summer/winter modes. However, my flat is corner flat, and I feel like it’s a bit colder than other flats. The rent is also a bit more expensive than average. Other cons: no microwave included, very bad mattress.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Although the kitchen is very good, there is no microwave, which I realized only after I moved in. The mattress is not very good, to my liking. Also, if I had a chance, I would have selected flat that is not in the cornet, since I think the corner flat is a bit colder.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Very good – there is dedicated app where you can raise maitenance requests, and the Ebb & Flow team reacts to them fairly quickly.
