Happy new home owners

We live in the Windsor, the design of which is great and nicely appointed. Perfect size for us, and the lay out is great. When we first moved in the building/ property management were awesome and were quick in sorting some early issues that we had reported. More recently however they have not been particularly proactive in sorting out some more recent issues that we have. We are hopeful however that this will improve again going forward

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

It’s overall quite nice, good local amenities within walking distance and also overlooks Brodsworth Community Woodlands so the views are great (depending which plot it is). Parking is fine as we have our own driveway. Where we live is fine but the opposite road does contain some affordable home plots, the residents of which are quite loud and anti social at times. Also a couple of plots we think are involved with drugs as there has been a couple of attacks on those properties having windows smashed and cars vandalised. Traffic noise is minimal, you can hear the A1 nearby depending on the wind direction.

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

Don’t let keepmoat turf your garden if they offer it as part of the deal. The quality is poor, they don’t put down topsoil and its very uneven. We would have declined and had it done ourselves if we would have known it was so poor.

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

As earlier stated, in the first month or so of moving in they were very quick and responsive to our issues, more recently however not so proactive and find that we are having to chase for responses and results.

Not too bad

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2021

Overall the development is good. House quality is okay, cracks and problems come to light when you start to make alterations and you realise the craftsmanship and work has been rushed. Customer service from keepmoat after you have moved in is poor.

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

Lovely quiet area, sharing a shared access can sometimes be difficult but most of time good. Snag correcting and home problems not attended to well. Some slight issues arose once the pedestrian access was added near the woodlands side of the development which is not ideal.

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

How poor the ability of the contractors work

What is the best feature of your home:

The size of the Master bedroom on the top floor. The alterations we have made ourself.

Pleasant views . House design well built lots of space between the houses . Nice development and walks near by . Lots of trees and green space . The Environment is very pleasant apart from the mass of social houses .

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

Lovely development. Shame about tplaces for people social housing Tennats and letting the Environment down . 4 houses smashed windows on one street .

Ok at the minute. Still building on the areas . The roads and paths haven’t been completed and it’s over a year now . But guess once completed should be very nice .

Skylark Grange beautiful area.

It has been great to see the development of the area and to see how it is growing. The designs of the facilities work with the environment surrounding them. The rooms have lots of space to work with and are laid out in an accessible manner that provides for a good home feeling.

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

Shops and other facilities are easily accessible in the area. The public walking trail in the area is absolutely fantastic. Each house having its own parking section is very useful and gives peace of mind in the safety of our vehicles.

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

I wish I would have know how many takeaways were in the area has we are spoiled for choice in the area.

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

Any problems have been dealt with effectively and in a fast time period.

Not a house but a home

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2021

The house design is brilliant, the designer clearly wanted a homely feel. The estate layout is makes it feel like its own community which is nice. Nothing is lacking from the property apart from the garden as with all new builds seems to be a minefield once you start working on it

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

Parking for the property is brilliant, the estate has a community feel to it. Local shops are a 10 minute walk away as is the bus route. Felt like home immediately

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

No issues with the house,only issues are with the garden. When buying a house it seems as though the garden is overlooked in regards to finishing standards.but all new builds are the same

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

Any issues are dealt with straight away to a high standard

Skylarks Grange Review

Review Date Jul 2021

The designs of the houses are great. We have a Bamburgh and the third floor design is great. The bedroom space is brilliant. The design of the roads isn’t too bad, but the roads are quite narrow. Placement of the estate is perfect. Keepmoat can be a little slack in assisting with snags, but all in all it’s pretty good.

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

Morrison’s & Aldi just in the next village. 5 minute drive. 3/4 local pubs. Co-Op at the end of the estate.

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

I wish we had known that they were not going to finish the road until all the building works on site were done.

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

I don’t think I would change anything really? The only thing I can think of is maybe a front garden, because not many of the houses on the estate have them, and I think it is important.

Well located, spacious housing.

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2021

The development itself is modern and spacious as none of the houses feel too close together. Additionally the individual designs of the houses provide their own positives. The location of the development next to the wooded area is excellent for dog walking.

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

The location of this development is useful as the local high streets provide aqequate shopping and the town centre is only a couple of miles away.

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

Just how big the garden was. It can be time consuming to maintain, not that this is an issue.

Could be better.

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2021

Design pretty good. Property management could be better and takes a long time to get proper tarmac on roads and footpaths. Green areas are pretty poor and already require treatment, often looking very over grown. Hoping to see a bud stop created for additional transport links.

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

No nearby pub or restaurant, a real shame pickburn arms country pub remains shut.Affordable housing disrespectful to the estate, don’t maintain gardens and driveways and simply not looked after and are nosey and attract trouble to development.

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

Very uneven garden left and cost a considerable amount of money to rectify. The gardens were not available at viewing stage.

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

Issues have been rectified, some not to the best standard and again when purchasing a house this should be completed prior to moving in. More quality control required.
