“I must admit, at first I was a bit dubious about moving into an apartment but it’s gone very well for us. Any problems we’ve encountered have been swiftly resolved. The Estate Manager is extremely helpful. He is always visible – carrying out his work on site, maintaining the gardens and the communal areas.”
