The design I believe is very compact and it is a good practical house. Very evenly designed with good storage place both floors. Moreover, the kitchen and utilities are latest and up to date. The only issue is 3rd room is a bit small but never mind, other amenities cover it all.

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

Hey Its Moona, I am loving this place as I have moved recently from London, Sidcup. Place is so open and gives a fresh feeling. A park just opposite to the property with a large playing ground is even more appreciable and my kids love the place.

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

To be fairly honest its an awesome place to live, feels safe as well.

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

The management so far has been very very polite and co-operative. They take the action in a well organised manner and respect our engagements with work.

Chase Park – Ideal Location for Couples and Families Alike

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The design of Chase Park is lovely with a nicely thought out and accessible design of houses and apartments. There’s a good mix of buildings but it does look a little ‘cookie-cutter’-esque typically associated with new build developments. We occupy a ‘Weaver’ property which is a three bedroom detached house. Externally, the house looks good with a double drive allowing plenty of space to access the property. Inside, rooms are laid out well to maximise space and as such, we are really happy living here. Garden space is adequate but again, work will need to be done to it to make it a more enjoyable place to be – it is essentially just grass and four wooden fenced walls!
Facilities are more than adequate with weekly bin collections as well as regular maintenance by grounds staff to the front lawns of the properties. This helps the development maintain it’s well-coiffed look.
In terms of management of the property, this is where some work could be done. The team are excellent during the moving in process and should any major issues arise (we had a small water leak a month or so after moving in), then contractors are bought in quickly to efficiently and safely rectify the problem. However, minor issues do take a bit longer to resolve which is somewhat disappointing as overall, this is a great place to live and a great community to be part of.

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

In all, this area of Ellesmere Port is a fantastic place to live. The Chase Park development is very close to Ellesmere Port town centre, the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, and with easy access to the M53, driving further afield is not too much hassle at all with places like Manchester Airport only being a 35 minute drive away.
Ellesmere Port and Chester train station are also not too far away, and should you wish to visit or commute to nearby Liverpool, it’s only a 40 minute journey from the former station.
Ellesmere Port town centre is a little run down and could do with some investment but the council are trying. That said, if you want nice shops and more things to do, the area around Cheshire Oaks is amazing with lots of shops to suit all types off budgets, plenty of restaurants, and plenty of visitor attractions, like the cinema, adventure golf, and bowling alley.
The development itself is a nice community with lots of friendly neighbours. Most houses have off street parking in the form of a drive or a shared lay-by with other residents. There is some ongoing work to improve the road surface at the moment, which has led to there being some daytime noise. That said, despite living so close to a buy motorway (M53), the development is quiet most of the time and makes for a cosy and peaceful place to live.

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

Do have a thorough look at the inventory and then the condition of the house – some areas did not quite match up exactly and some issues became apparent a little while after moving in which then became more difficult to deal with. Have a good look at everything, if there’s anything you’re not sure about or want adding into the inventory, contact your landlord and get it sorted ASAP.

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

Major problems dealt with very quickly. Minor problems not so much – some of which were raised at the beginning of the year and are still yet to be rectified.

Design is good but one room seems small. Facilities are up to date and awesome. I find things and the storage are well designed. Moreover the management is very good and is very co-operative. Are is well open and I see its very calm and clean. The park is just opposite my house with my large ground for walk and exercise.

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

Its near the main markets, open and park nearby for kids entertainments.

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

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

Yes promptly. I had an issue with the energy saver and they responded very well

Beautiful Family house that we love to live in.

Review Date Jul 2021

We love the house ( my wife and I )
It is spacious, modern and got all the comfort amenities.
There are few drawbacks but not massive but it will be good if you can consider it in the future designs
1. The light … we would prefer more natural lights and bigger windows. It helps to cut the cost of electricity during the day as well.
2. In our house , the only way to get access to the lounge is through the kitchen … for us ( as we cook a lot and have a lot of friends coming to our house ) was a concern . To let the guests pass through a dirty or untidy kitchen after a cooking party is something we would not like and it will take effort to prevent it.

Other than that the house is lovely … cosy … spacious … kids friendly… and very suitable for our needs.

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

Very good area overall. Good neighbours and very close to Cheshire Oak. Good schools nearby.
Lack of walking distances nearby shops ( for light groceries) but there are good big brands nearby ( good driving distance)

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

The public transport and the accessibility to the nearby big cities and city centres.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature is the space and the modern design.

Exceptional properties just need little TLC on development

The design could have been done a little better, looking into everyone’s gardens gives no privacy but at the same time it does give security.
Management of the property I have no fault with, if Iv ever need anything doing it has been done quickly and professionally. The gardeners have let the site down due to not attending and some neighbours don’t care about the back gardens

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

The good aspect of living in Chase Park is close to Cheshire Oaks no need to drive is only a 5 min walk.
It’s very quite, good neighbours
Bad aspect it’s not kept on top off like Simple Life promises. Gardeners hardly come round and road works only just started after 3yrs

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

To be honest everything I need to know I found out about before I moved in. Everything was explained to me oh except how to work the heating properly I still can’t do it

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

Notified me with what their plans are to solve the problem very promptly and have sorted it within a couple of days.

We’re so pleased you’re happy with property management and the home overall. If you are finding any issues with front garden maintenance please do let your Asset Manager know so we can be sure standards are being kept where Simple Life maintain grassed areas.

House is nice but the garden and pavement let’s it down

Unfortunately the house we are currently in and the houses in the whole of chase Park have very bad gardens they have rubble and rocks under them. We have a very bad drainage issue in our garden and it clogs up with water which damages the grass unfortunately. The paths are very bad for the kids and super uneven

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

Near Cheshire oaks which is nice
A bit anti social behaviour from estate across development
It’s nice to have the play ground for the kids near by

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

The garden having such bad drainage and being very lumpy with quite excessive dips which aren’t ideal for kids running on.

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

Unfortunately not great due to having an issue with the alarm in the kitchen constantly going off .. the oven glass busted all over our kitchen. It took a good few days before someone would attend to get it fixed.

Hi Aoife,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

First of all we’re really pleased you’re happy with the location of your development.

Following your review we have had a look at your record and we can’t see any previous communication around issues with your garden or the drainage – if you feel there are ongoing problems we would be happy to get someone out to inspect this for you. As you have mentioned a few items that we haven’t got on our system, we would really like the opportunity to speak with you in more detail so we can make sure everything is logged and sorted for you. Please could you get in touch with your Asset Manager at a time which is convenient for you?

We’re sorry if you feel there was a delay in getting your oven fixed. Something of this nature is a priority repair for us, however often when it comes to appliances, we do have to sometime wait for the specific parts/replacements to come through.

We hope that since leaving this review your experience has improved and we look forward to having a more in-depth conversation with you over the phone.

Our lovely house in Chase Park, Ellesmere Port

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

Our house comes with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a garage.
It’s a lovely, spacious house with a nice size garden.
The only thing I regret, is that the kitchen walls are not tiled. This means, after using the hob, the painted walls are difficult to keep clean.

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

The location of our house is just perfect, being only minutes away from the Cheshire Oaks Retail Park, as well as a nice selection of supermarkets.
Public transport is about 20 minutes walk.
Even though being so close to all these amenities, the area we live in is quiet and undisturbed.

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

Everything was as expected.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of our house, is that it’s perfectly insulated, keeping the heat in and the sound out.

The development itself is well designed, well maintained and the property management team are always on hand to help. The only eyesore to the development in my opinion is the roads and curbs. The curbs are quite high and the roads are not very well done, they take away so much from a beautiful development.

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

The development is within close proximity of shops, schools and restaurants/bars. There are good transport links and the development is well maintained. I’ve noticed high Curbs in the street that can be quite problematic with my double stroller and sometimes catches on my car entering the driveway.

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

The back garden quality was deceiving at first.

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

I’ve had a few minor issues with response to issues whilst living in the property however since there has been a new property management team it has been a lot better.
