Modern and conveniently located near the station!

Modern development estate with a local shop right at the centre of it. A quiet residential area and not too far from the station (15-30 mins bus ride to the central station and even less to Reading West station).

I have only been here for less than the month, but loving it so far! Local shop is definitely a plus even though I thought I’d never use it given I have a car.

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

Quiet development. Lovely neighbours.

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

NA.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

More local parks and restaurants in the development itself.

Modern and homely.

Review Date Oct 2020

The design is modern and stylish, but with a homely feel. The amenities around the area are great. Have really good experiences with the building management team. It’s a great place for new families and first time buyers. I would highly recommend this a a place to live.

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

Local shop and coffee shop are great. Very close to a school so great for kids. Frienly environment.

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

Parking was not allocated, which would have been better but rarely struggle to get a space.

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

Very well. We had an issue but got resolved very quickly.

Dee Park Review

Review Date Oct 2020

Poor management by Wilmott Dixon as initially had to really struggle to get pending work done by them. Some loose floorboards, faulty doors etc.
Facilities aren’t the best as a bit far from town, only one londis shop close by. Town is a bit far and serviced by only 1 bus.

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

No local shops close by apart from Londis which is a bit of hassle.

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

None

What is the best feature of your home:

Looks fine as is a new house. Nice bathrooms. Garden is fine.

Quite and peaceful habitat

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

While I’m new to UK and just bought our own house, I don’t quite understand the logic of having boarded walls and non concrete floors. The layout in the area is nice and the feeling of community is there. Love the open space and greenery around and the council does a good join of keeping the area clean

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

The area is very peaceful and I like the quite and non noisy area. The area is also we’ll kept. Unfortunately we only have one shop which is Londis. Would like to see some more shops around. The neighborhood is nice

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

I would suggest checking all the important equipment like boiler(makes loud noise sometimes) bathroom (water does not drain properly due to wrong inclination)

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

No issues have been reported as yet and didn’t need to contact building management

Nice enough

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

The new houses on the development look smart and modern and there is plenty of parking. However, the older houses that are still there look dated. Houses on the estate are affordable for the area. Local shops are convenient for essentials but only have a small selection.

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

Local shops are are convenient but the houses are very close together

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

The house looses heat easily

What is the best feature of your home:

It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms giving plenty of space for a small family.

Review Date Oct 2020

The development suits different needs and taste and well thought of designs. The development could have benefited from localised pub
There is limitations to broadband providers in the area. This has proved to be a challenge during lockdown and working from with little choices for upgrade.

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

Good spacious houses and good development with easy access to town and local amneties

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

Broadband connectivity as its limited to sky and not always good
