The design of the properties are lovely

The design of the properties are lovely. Whilst similar in style and colours, many of the houses have different designs and bricks which makes the development a little bit different.
There is lots of greenery on the estate, which makes it a pleasant place to live.
There is a small pond outside of my house, however it is not filled with water – which would be a lovely touch.

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

The area is in a small village, that has local ameneties such as a small shop, butchers and pubs.
It would be nice to have a play area for children on the estate.
Parking for my street is fine.
Bin collections are every Friday, although there have been occasions when this has not happened.

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

Would have been good to have recycling points and more bins on the estate.

What is the best feature of your home:

The location and privacy of the property. Large outdoor space.

Excellent location but short on quality and finish

Community management non-existent which means many grass areas are looked after by residents (no community correspondence in 3 years). Design of estate rather typical but could have been more difficult innovative as others are coming on-stream. The one area that lets Rowland Homes down the most is the standard of finish of the houses internally. More care and attention would pay dividends as the cost of remedial work must become extensive and are very frustrating for the owners.

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

Superb location within walking distance to all the village amenities. Large parking area within the development but not accessible from the road and too far from many houses so it tends to be unused

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

We would have liked to have all the snagging done before we moved in. The company would benefit from a higher standard of customer service. The gardens throughout the development all needed extra drainage and was a significant additional cost not expected with a new property.

What is the best feature of your home:

We love the location and spacious design. No doubting the value for money

Wouldn’t do it again

My husband and I purchased our town house from phase one. Watching the build was exciting. The property seemed to go up quickly and completion to move in was smooth. A number of our purchased extras were not provided. The quality of the branded interior items were either poorly fitted and needed replacing, We still have issues to date. Or, just poor quality. Kitchen cupboards all needed adjustment. Kitchen laminate flooring damages easily. Paint has blistered. All doors inside the property have issues. Double glazed double doors are not easy to lock or even close.

The community within the development has a variety of residents that are friendly and you do feel part of a secured unit.

What is the best feature of your home:

Being part of a limited number of town houses as the developers agreed not to build more.

Rowland Homes Meadow Gate

The design of the property itself is really well laid out- maximising space. I live in a 3 bed semi-detached with one other person and it feels plenty big enough for us. The facilities are good, working toilets, kitchen, appliances etc. We had an issue with our patio doors after moving in, to the point where we couldn’t lock them so felt very unsafe. Rowland were very slow to answer our calls/requests for this- owing to my low score for property management. They eventually came out and adjusted the doors, but in my opinion they still aren’t the best.

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

Walking distance to 2 large supermarkets & a small town centre. Good amenities, eg. Gyms, bars, restaurants

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

Write more points on the snag list- as the snag list is priorotised. But anything found after has to go through customer care who take 1000 years to respond.

What is the best feature of your home:

The kitchen/dining area is lovely and open plan- which adds a nice touch to a smaller house
