Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property is in a generally poor condition clearly demonstrating the lack of a maintenance program. Walls show damage, light fittings need to be replaced carpet mats fraying and very poor, carpet, curtains, vanity in bathroom, all need replacing. Interior plastering and painting all need rather urgent attention.
