“Brunel Crescent stood out because of the high quality of the finish everywhere, and we should like to live there because it is a small block of only 15 residences situated in a lovely position in a very pleasant village. So many we have looked at have been in much more urban surroundings and contain too many homes.”
Mr & Mrs Morrell, Cornwall

“My late husband judged What House's "Best Apartment competition" for thirteen years so we visited hundreds of apartments up and down the country.  With this in mind I would say that what attracted me to Brunel Crescent was that it seemed to be well built with top quality finishes but, the best thing was the view, parking facility and storage space.  So many small apartments have little or no cupboards or store rooms, Brunel Crescent has both.”
Mrs Jones, Dorset

“We went around the Crescent apartments yesterday.  We both thought the penthouse was very impressive, spacious and thoughtfully and carefully detailed, all down to you personally we suspect!  The so-called retirement market is lacking this sort of apartment, and is something I have been advocating over many years to developers.  We hope the development proves successful for you, it deserves to.”
Mr Ward, Wiltshire
