RETIRE TO THE COAST
We like to have the heating on all the time in the cooler months and added to this I have always cooked a lot, so we never really expected to save on our utility bills. However, we have been pleasantly surprised so far. It’s really shown us just how much a big property like our old house used to take to heat when we weren’t using all of the rooms.
Our apartment is always so warm and cosy. I would go as far to say it is the most comfortable property we’ve ever owned.
The service charge represents good value for money as it covers all our property maintenance, things like the garden, window cleaning, security system and gated entrance, upkeep of communal areas. If there’s an issue or a problem it gets sorted, and we have a House Manager on hand to make sure everything is running smoothly. We see a breakdown of the costs, and everything gets itemised so we really can’t complain, and it’s a set cost which means we have a very clear idea of our monthly outgoings which we like.
Since the move, not only do I not have the stress of keeping up with the maintenance anymore – if something needs doing I just tell Debbie the House Manager and it’s done.
Better still, I’m actually saving money day-to-day! My electricity bills are very much less, around £100 per month compared to the more than £300 per month I was paying in my old property. Saying that, you don’t really need to worry about having your heating on all that much. Even in the worst of winter I only feel I need to have the one radiator switched on - it’s so toasty and warm here.
"I've thought about this and there's only one word to us that describes this place and that's "Utopia", It's absolutely fantastic!"
"Everything was in lockdown at the time, the schools were shut, no one was going out and I didn’t really feel like it made the move any more difficult. McCarthy Stone’s […] approach is sensible, straightforward and cautious."
"The Smooth Move service was so good, all we had to do was walk out the house, they did everything…I was delighted with the move. I’d recommend it to everyone."
"There's always plenty of people about even if you're just going shopping."
"We're much happier. Well I am, yes! I mean I did have some doubts, what am I going to do, you know, stuck in a two-bedroom apartment all day long with nothing to do. Now I am working out when am I going to get a break!"
