Resident · 2012 - 2013
I lived here a year PROs: quiet and peaceful, ample parking, workout room that s climate controlled, swimming pools, tennis courts, storage room on patio, dishwasher, pantry, buses take you the UT Austin campus easily. HEB shopping and post office nearby, neighborhood upscale suburban with lots of running/cycling options and beautiful oak trees. price is reasonable. CONs: A/C drip pan above shower clogged with rust and the panel underneath fell into the shower when it got full of water (glad I wasnt in the shower at the time). Maintenance came and flushed it out with compressed gas, but a month later it was clogged again, just had to take the panel off and let it drip into the shower during the summer months. Floor was warm from boiler pipes under the dining room (good during winter, bad during summer) screens on sliding doors kept coming off, sliding door had gap when closed which increased heating and cooling costs (door still locked). MOPAC is your route into and out of here which can be a parking lot at rush hour, but there are back roads (mt bonnell) that you can take around the traffic. fire ants and crickets were problems. ceilings let you hear every step of up-stair neighbors. Packages get left in office instead of package boxes, which is inconvenient. Austin Energy controls your A/C during the summer and shuts you off at peak energy times.
