I've lived in my 2-bed, 2.5-bath townhome for 2 years. I have to say that the quality of the experience has really hung on my neighbors--if you get rude, loud people next door, you're screwed. If not, it's very peaceful. Yes, there is a train that runs past the back of the complex, so be sure to inspect the EXACT unit you are assigned before signing the lease. When we came to look at the townhomes, we were shown one that was nowhere near the tracks. I actually read about the train on this site, and as soon as I was told what unit we'd be getting, I drove right by and sure enough, it was just in front of the tracks. However, I did ask to be reassigned and was totally accomodated. The complex is on the older side, but they did just put in new sliding doors and will be putting new windows in shortly. Unfortunately, because I have a corner townhouse, I have a back door instead of sliders and was told that I won't be getting a new door although I have the same insulation issues as everyone else, AND I pay more rent for the corner house. I also have noticed that the class of people living here has taken a downward turn in the 2 years that I've been here. But honestly, Boothwyn is not exactly Palm Springs, so it's not totally surprising. Seems like there is a lot of turnaround of apartments. I was paying under $1000/mo for my townhouse up until this month, which I think it on par with what you get for the money. However, I believe that for new tenants, the rents are nearly $100 more per month for my type of townhome and all things considered, I'm not sure it's worth it. However, if you MUST live in the Boothwyn/Aston area and are looking for a split-level rental, there's nothing better anywhere around.
