I have lived at Old Farm Shores with my girl friend and a roommate for just over a year and a half. We moved in when we where all still trying to finish up our schooling. <br><br>Pros:<br>The complex has a couple ponds with fish planted and fishing is allowed as long as you follow the catch and release rules. The area is pretty quite with mostly vary nice helpful tenants. There is an outdoor pool open in the summer. A tail follows along one side of the grounds with several hook up points, the trail is perfect for running walking biking or roller blading. The trail and the ponds are my personal favorites of the complex because two of my favorite outdoor pastimes are fishing and running. There is also a Park within walking distance. <br><br>Cons:<br>The buildings are starting to show there age and there is a new management company that doesn't seem to have done much to keep things updated. My apartment is extremely drafty in the winter which is not only uncomfortable but also makes for a high gas bill! The appliances are ok but the furnace needs to be updated, it runs constantly and the final inspection sticker says it was approved 12/03/1986. We are see mold appearing in the bathroom which raises concerns. <br>As for the grounds they are decently kept up, there is room for improvement. The pool seems like a nice amenity at first but it seemed like last summer it was always closed due to people defecating in the water... When the pool was open there was constintly people from the neighborhood that were non tenants being extremely rude and not obeying the rule. When they were asked to leave they would never cooperate and the cops had to come on several occasions. I also had the same problems with the tennis courts. <br><br>We will be moving out at the end of our lease due to the increase of rent and the decease in quality.
