A new happy home

I’m really happy with the development, well located well designed. The team are a pleasure to deal with.

I’ve had little to no snagging, and whilst the post sales team could be a little
more responsive, I’m largely
Happy with how these have been dealt with.

The flats themselves are really nice, spacious with good facilities and energy efficient appliances.

It’s a great location.

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

This location is great, I am a short 10 minute walk to the centre of town and their are local amenities even closer by.

The street is quiet, although I am on the quieter side of the development.

25 minutes to London, on top of a 15 minute walk.

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

Social housing, whilst not liable for service charge directly, can push the cost of this up through anti social
Behaviour / repair work.

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

Yes, although the response can be slow
At times, I’m still chasing one outstanding issue raised over three weeks ago.

Spacious bedrooms, however, the booster fan is in a awkward place, restricting wardrobes and other items to be placed in that surrounding.

Spacious bedrooms, however, the booster fan is in a awkward place, restricting wardrobes and other items to be placed in that surrounding. There’s no security in the entire building, which would have been beneficial as some visitors tend to smoke cannabis in the staircases.

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

Good aspects: the property is new build, the bedrooms are spacious, close to shops, transport and town centre
Bad aspects: limited parking spaces, no security, close to the main road causing noise

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

There’s very limited parking space and the area is very noisy.

The design and appearance of the development is great

The design and appearance of the development is great, it looks very modern and the garden at the rear is a great advance especially being so central. It lacks visitor parking but otherwise has parking for residents. The property is managed well with contact information for residents to report problems.

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

The development is very close to the town centre and oracle as well as having many small convenience stores close by. There’s parking for each flat but no visitor parking st all.

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

I wish I had known there is no visitor parking including no nearby streets with visitor parking permits so this makes it tricky when having visitors.

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

The management have responded but sometimes there has been a long delay in getting a response to important issues.

It’s a Grade II listed building with stunning facade.

It’s a Grade II listed building with stunning facade. The location is also absolutely great due to its proximity to town center, train station, hospital and convenient for people driving in out of Reading as it is very close to the motorway A329.

Grade II listed building, close to town center.

At the time of buying, there were some cosmetic wall painting issues that I had reported and it was fixed on time before delivery.
