Before Rochford Construction finished the last few units in The Cloister they began construction in Ashley Green, a similar development in Bellevue behind the old Bellevue Library and the Fire station. Bonney and I spent considerable time looking at various condos in Ashley Green.
We discovered serious problems with some units in Ashley Green.
One Ashley Green owner had a modular screen porch put up in the back. The porch had been built directly on the dirt ground. The floor was rickety and would wobble when we walked on it through the rear door.. Arggggh!
Several Ashley Green units had cheap and shabby awnings over windows and entryways that made the entire area look like a worn out slum. We decided that Ashley Green was neither a good investment nor a good place to live.
Altho it appears that we at The Cloister are subject to excessive control over what we can to around the exterior of our buildings……that control has resulted in a very attractive community.
I am concerned that one of the Cloister homes has a blue fabric awning over their entrance. Why didn’t they put something up consistent with the quality and architectural style of the homes at The Cloister?
Can this be the start of the deterioration of our community?
