Prince’s Gardens is ICONIC

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The aesthetic of the properties in Prince’s Gardens are very appealing and modern. The layout of the houses work really well for all kinds of families and living situations. The drive space and gardens are large and perfect for any kind of us. The management of the property is superb, they are very understanding and helpful with all inquiries.

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

Prince’s Gardens is very close to all the amenities you could need. There’s a tram stop nearby and bus stops close too.

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

There was no TV aerial installed in the property. Though, the landlord gave us permission to install Sky TV.

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

Flatter garden. My property has quite a steep garden and a flatter garden would allow us to use it more.

Great Place to live, but some caveats.

Review Date Jul 2021

This is a well developed neighbourhood with good road design and has great potential to be an excellent living space. However, the building material shows signs of compromises that have been made in constructions. Management also needs to be responsive.

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

Good – New development
Good – Infrastructure
Bad – Management takes a long time to respond

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

I wish I knew about the build quality of the development.

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

Management has been slow to respond to queries that have been raised and do not show urgency to resolve issues.

Review of princes gardens

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2021

Fantastic development, lovely homes and quiet location with great local amenities, close by to supermarkets/shops/restaurants and easy access to motorways and the heart of Sheffield city centre, I would highly recommend simple life homes to anybody and they are great to deal with.

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

Fantastic development, lovely homes and quiet location with great local amenities.

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

I would have liked to have know the actual dimensions of the property before we moved in as this was our first home and would have been ideal so we could have ordered furniture beforehand.

What is the best feature of your home:

Modern styling and great size with plenty of space for storage.

Great house

Review Date Jul 2021

The houses are really nice and look really good on the inside too. They are very clean and hold up really well. The gardens are a great size and we have had minimal problems regarding areas of the house. As odd as it may read, sound doesn’t travel that easily through the house which is nice and peaceful

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

Great houses for a great price. Really enjoy living here the people around a really nice and very helpful

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

Literally nothing apart from would have liked bigger bins but not sure that’s for anyone but us to do

What is the best feature of your home:

Literally everything. The house is perfect love the drive

Princes gardens review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

Really nice estate, secluded and out of the way so it is nice and quiet. The design of the property is very good. I think there could’ve been more time spent of the garden area as we are going through difficulties with it that aren’t being sorted. Lovely neighbours

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

It’s so good for amenities.

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

I wish I’d have known that the garden was laid half arsed and wasn’t laid right meaning it doesn’t settle and join

What is the best feature of your home:

The bedrooms are really well designed and plenty of space

Our simple life review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The system to report any problems in our house is easy to use and often there is a quick response. There has been a few occasions where we have been waiting for 3-4 months for repairs, we are happy to wait but this did seem quite lengthy. The design of the house is great, very spacious although some of the quality of how the doors are hung/ paint on the walls isn’t the best. But all round a stunning property. P

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

We are not far away from the city centre where there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. We have a lot of restaurants shops and open spaces near by. Parking is no problem however sometimes our bins aren’t emptied.

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

We were given the reverse blue prints for our house so our L shaped sofa is the wrong way round. It would have been helpful to have accurate measurements/ photos of what our house may look like b

What is the best feature of your home:

We love our bathrooms as they are spacious and light and airy which is lovely for having baths on an evening!

Nice House and Area but small bath and living room (personal opinion)

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The area is pretty quiet with little to no anti-social behaviour although I have witnessed some arguments between some of the neighbours regarding parking but that’s all.
Throughout the year SimpleLife treat the tenants to free Ice Cream, a visit from Santa (for the Kids…obviously), Eater egg hunt and Pizza and Beer night but sadly we have only experienced 2 things due to the Pandemic.
The house itself (Hawthorne) is nice and spacious although the living room is pretty small and limited to where you can put your furniture.
The homes come with everything you need all you have to do is furnish it.
One other thing I would like to mention is that the bath that is provided is pretty narrow. I’m of average height and build and I only just fit.
Other than that i would still recommend a SimpleLife home.

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

Pretty good distance for shops and local tram line into town, school is really close by for us. the lack of “play areas” for the kids is a shame.

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

Honestly, I don’t really know what to say and if I were to write anything here I would just be nitpicking, like the kitchen door. I wish I knew how much it would annoy me before I moved in.

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

They are pretty quick to respond to problems but when it comes to fixing it depends on the urgency of the issue you have reported.

Well designed housing in a reasonable locale

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

Good floor plans and layout. Well maintained roads and foliage. Issues are quickly resolved when raised through management. Exterior House designs could be more unique as they all are cookie cutter and uniform. Generous number of bathrooms in the property

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

Good:
Close amenities such as supermarkets and shops ect
Close to main transit routes to city centre

Bad:
Loud main road
One of the more deprived areas in the city

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

New buildings will settle in their foundations and the structure will shift around during that time exposing cracks at seams in the walls

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

Issues resolved within a timely manner when raised to management

Princes Gardens Review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The design of the houses are great, lots of variety with the different styles of housing. It’s great that all properties come with integrated appliances and an en-suite. The building management and property management are okay, they have good communication.

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

Good:
Lots of parking space, close to asda and other shops

Bad:
Next to dual carriageway and near a police station so lots of traffic noise. Estate has 2 primary schools so roads to leave the estate get very busy

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

I wish I’d known which property I was going to move into

What is the best feature of your home:

Best feature is the integrated appliances and en-suite
