I rented this place from out of state October 2013. If I were not so tired from the 1200 mile trip (arrived late afternoon) I may have noticed much of this and not signed the lease.
The camera lens adds a lot of depth. Do not believe these photos. Also, be sure you read the lease thoroughly before signing it.
The owner ridiculed my “lack of apartment experience” when I remarked how small it looked for the stated “1100 SF”. Really? I have more than 8 year apartment exp. in three states. The garage is 1/3 full with items from my previous 1100 SF apartment. I cannot fit all of my things into this one; and I had NO storage area whatsoever there.
My bookcases had to be placed in front of the ONE baseboard heating element downstairs. “Heat the downstairs with the gas fireplace. It’s cheaper anyway,” the owner said. If its cheaper why wasn’t it built all gas?
That gas fireplace has stopped working THREE times since October - twice not turing on at all, once it went out after it was running.
This Townhome was disgustingly filthy. All the baseboards/windowsills needed scrubbing. The pantry door laminate was cracked, and repaired with Super Glue - now sharp edges rise and do not meet well. I had to scrub the tub and toilets before I could use them. The downstairs toilet & linoleum (leak) were FINALLY replaced however the oversized toilet used in this half bath moves whenever you sit on it.
There were (are) gaps in construction meeting properly. A hole in the door covered by woodgrain tape. He repaired the tape by putting a white door knob stop over it on the brown door. “I don’t have a tan one”. (Luxury Apt?)
More blacktop than grass. No amenities of any kind. Not even parcel acceptance for UPS or FedEx delivery.
The owner-manager of this complex is an Attorney. Think about how that may affect you in the future. I know how to protect myself with any Apartment, but do you?
