Hello all - I am looking at buying a penthouse property in Spice Quay Heights, Shad Thames
. I would really appreciate any advice about the building and the immediate area - is there anything I should know about that the estate agents won't tell me?! Any feedback would be very gratefully received. Thank you!
Dear Minnie. I have owned a flat in Spice Quay since it was built. The issues to beware of are: water leakage through the river facing windows (they need re-sealing at this stage of their life, which is cheap & easy to do), the flooring can be
buckled or split - especially after being subject to leaking windows! - I'm just about to have mine replaced. Some of the original washing machines need replacing too, I had mine done recently and they are expensive as they are built in. Do you only want a top floor apartment? If you are open to other floors my tenant is leaving so
I might sell it. It's 1289 sq ft so one of the biggest 2 bedroom 2 bathroom flats.
Let me know. Good Luck.
