Warwickshire is an amazing county located in the heart of England, just south of Birmingham and north of Oxfordshire. The county has an area of approximately 900 square miles and a population of around half a million people. It is well known for its beautiful countryside and historic towns and villages. If you are thinking of buying a home in Warwickshire, here is some information about the area that may be helpful to you.
A well-situated rural setting. LSL are excellent landlords who attend to repair requirements and the annual gas certificate promptly. Having moved here during construction and shortly prior to the 1st lock down, I have experienced many changes. There is insufficient visitor parking unfortunately. Most houses have 2 parking spaces and all have fenced gardens. The care of verges varies and needs attention by the housing associations, landlords and council, where applicable. In the 2,5 years my garden has progressed well with hard work and tge necessary attention, having arrived here with weed bound lawn and some soggy areas. It is what you make of it. Once all the roads are tarred, the relevant markings and hopefully, gentle ramps included, it should improve matters.
Please review your development:
The houses are fairly well designed but my 3 bed has a very small main room with a decent ensuite. It would have been better to enlarge the main room or have the en suite where the main bathroom is. Construction seems to be good. Insulation is very good but it is a pity storage in the attic was not considered as lack of storage is a weakness. The downstairs plan is perfect and opens into the spacious garden area. LSL are good property managers. No solar panels were fitted which is a shame. Although the kiddies Park is lovely, it would be nice to have a roller blading/cycling area for the pre-teens and teens. They deserve it.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
A very mixed neighbourhood so some unfortunate and stressful situations have arisen. Police presence has been good but some ill treatment of pets has not always received the necessary attention.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Linden homes did respond but sometimes a bit slow. The pandemic may have had an impact in all fairness.
