Heritage HIll Apartments
Resident · 2002 - 2005
My wife and I lived here with our cat; we moved shortly after child was born when we got a house. Although the place is older, we appreciated having a rental property that was East End yet not overpriced. The apartment complex is secluded enough that if your building is near the back (as ours was), you wouldn't even know you're off of Shelbyville Road. (There's a stoplight to get in and out of the complex, so traffic was not an issue.) We never were interested in having or paying for amenities, and theirs is pretty anemic: just a log cabin clubhouse and pool. Never used the pool, but the clubhouse was rented a few times; it was adequate for our needs, although I seem to remember a bug or two in the clubhouse kitchen area. We had no problem with hearing our neighbors, but then again we were fairly lucky to have good ones. The staff quality varied per person -- some were nicer and more responsive than others, but overall fine. Maintenance issues were addressed promptly, and moving in and out (including our deposit getting returned) happened without drama or difficulty. Probably the biggest knock against the property is its age. There's a reason for the lower rental price: I couldn't tell you when the carpet was last replaced or the walls were last painted before we moved in. However, I felt we got a good deal for the amount we paid in rent, and always felt safe around the property. If I was only basing my rating on appearance and construction, Heritage Hill would get a 3 out of 5, but the overall value earn them an extra star. I easily recommend the property for a "starter" apartment or those who are value-conscious, but if you want a newer East End place (and want to pay for it), look elsewhere.
