Great location, great building, could be more energy efficient

The building itself has been well designed and is lovely to live in. Modern design with great amenities including a washer/dryer, dish washer, fridge freezer, oven and hob etc. Energy rating is awful and the lack of insulation of the property means bills are incredibly high, however can be overlooked when considering the overall ease of living here. Building management is handled well, always clean in the hallways and outside of the property is well kept.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great range of local shops, not many restaurants but as to be expected further out from the centre. Open space next to abbey park is fantastic and convenient. Abbey park road hasn’t been developed well and the road leading into the housing development is heavily populated. Would be better as permit parking to allow residents to park only. Lots of littering happens outside our property from drivers, I have personally picked up a lot of waste from local littering individuals which has been harmful to local wildlife.

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

The building is always quiet and all neighbours are friendly. Bills will be higher than expected and there’s a lot of bugs being next to the river.

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

We requested an extractor fan repair which took 4 months to be attended to however everything else has been dealt with really well

Developing for the future means a permanent stay

The design of the development is very modern, it complements the nature that is surrounded in the area the brick work and hints of grey is a nod to the modern trends of new homes and developments both building and property management are hands on they even have a app which makes life easier when needing to contact or communicate.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The development is in the heart of the city which means most shops are near, transport is easy to get to and there’s plenty of parking for permit and non permit, bin collections are weekly, although we are off a main road you hardly hear any traffic the only down side is that there is only one main road for the development so everyone that lives in the development can only access the road to and from their home so it can get busy

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

The new development that has been going next door as it’s been causing building noise

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

Very attentive very quick on emails and app is great for communication

Great development

The design could be improved. Although there are big sized bedrooms, the downstairs w/c is quite big so takes up space. The facilities are great, and building management. The ongoing inspections are good as any issues csn be addressed snd resolved quickly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good: good access to main road such as belgrave road, close to city centre, parking facilities are great. Well lit roads and houses.
Bad: only one road to enter and exit, need a local shop.

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

I have a river facing house which is nice for views but we hardly ever use the fromt of the house

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

Yes i have reported issues and they have sent out someone quickly.

Best place to stay

The lovely open layout, loads of windows and bright. Could do with a shelter cover near front door as shown on development picture, lovely building manager , very accommodating when needed advice, the car park wraps around the building which helps feel less cluttered

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The development is in the city centre with a walk away , local amenities like shops and with the bridge now open it’s more accessible to city centre. Parking 1 allocation and a busy road where visitors to the park will use the street to park there car and walk to the park, bins are collected weekly and on time.

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

The bridge being closed for the length of time. There is a new house development starting opposite the blinding

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

Very attentive , quick replies on emails and the app is great to use for communication
