    “The property was in a brilliant location and well equipped but it would have been good to have been able to walk to more places without having to rely on the car.”

    The information about the gradient of the drive and the steps to the apartment was not obvious in the literaure and could be a major issue for some people. It would also have been better to have had an opening window in the main living room or rooflight as it was very airless at night.
