Persimmon st edeyrns

Review Date Dec 2021

The local area is close to the m4 so easy access to get all around Cardiff. It is walking distance to some shops/gyms/places to eat! Parking is an issue at the moment due to multiple road works and inconsiderate parkers. There is also some anti social behaviour especially in the summer, unfortunately mostly young children. But overall I do like living here with no intent to move at present.

Please review your development:

The development is overall good but the management has been quite difficult to deal with. Everything promised for the development has been delayed, we finally have a shop, but the primary school has been delayed by years. The overall look of the estate is modern.

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

How delayed the local amenities would be such as the shop and promised cafe.

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

It has taken over two years to get snags sorted, there are still some outstanding. They are brilliant in the initial few weeks, then down hill from there.

Good location, improvements to be made

Our street is great and quiet as we live in a cul de sac, and it’s good to be so close to the M4. I hear of a lot of anti-social behaviour on our estate though.

Please review your development:

Design of the house is good for a 2 bed house. It took a while for us to be able to move in and we weren’t given a proper tour of our house when we moved in. There were snags when we moved in which took a while to sort out too. I like the different variety of homes on offer here.

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

We had an issue where our boundaries were wrong and had to be sorted out. We were unable to use our garden for a year. I hear this has happened again on the estate and it really shouldn’t be.

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

It was hard to get anyone to come and see our snags and there are still some minor things that haven’t been sorted

Well built House

Verified Resident

Review Date Oct 2021

Very little pubs within walking distance or restaurants. Retail park close by with Gym and a large Asda and easy access to the M4. Bus during the day goes regularly to Cardiff Centre.

Please review your development:

House has been built well, Design of house could be better but you always have to compromise. Very well insulated and heating the house takes not very long and it will stay warm. Gardens could easily be levelled off with a little thought for what the owners will do. But overall, we have had a very well built house

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

Take the timings and everything the sales people say with a pinch of Salt

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

They responded quickly with the cosmetic issues but once the survey was signed we had no contact until a new site manager came in (Mike) and since then Mike has done as much as he can to get the 7 day snag list resolved

Convenient/ fantastic

Review Date Oct 2021

The bus stop is like a 1-5 minute walk which is very convenient as I’m disabled also Asda very local and easy for me to get to we are waiting for a local shop budgens to open in 3 weeks time which will be amazing as I can walk out the door and there’s a shop been waiting 8 months but it’s finally going to be opening but that’s understandable because of covid

Please review your development:

The layout and design of the development is very nice there ain’t to much traffic In the night which is nice and during the day when there is you can’t hardly here it as the houses and flats are so nicely done that it blocks a lot of the noise out. also the property management and building management is great 😊

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

The speed bumps on the road wasn’t so big
