Brooklands is made up of two blocks of apartments. The first block to the front of the development contains 4 flats – 2 on the ground floor and 2 on the first floor above them.
A second block to the rear of the development houses 6 flats – 3 on the ground floor and 3 on the first floor above them. One of the first floor flats has its own entrance and the other 2 first floor flats share an entrance.
The layout of ground floor and first floor apartments in both blocks are very similar with the addition of access to the garden from the ground floor flats.
Ground floor apartments
Each ground floor apartment shares an entrance with the flat above it. In the block of 6 flats, one of the entrances leads to two of the ground floor apartments. A stairway leads to the two flats above. Once inside the apartment’s entrance, a hallway leads past the master bedroom with the second bedroom on the opposite side. The hallway also takes you past the bathroom and separate guest toilet into the living room/ dining area. Once in the living room/ dining area, a door takes you into the kitchen and separate patio doors provide flat access out into the communal gardens. Some of the apartments have an additional built in cupboard for extra storage space near the entrance.
First floor apartments
Each first floor apartment shares an entrance with the flat below it. In the block of 6 flats, one of the shared entrances gives access to two of the bottom floor flats with a stairway leading to the two apartments above. Once inside the apartments, the hallway opens out onto a similar layout as the ground floor – with access to the two bedrooms, bathroom, separate toilet and into the living room/ dining area. From the living room/ dining area, a door leads into the kitchen. Some of the flats have an additional built in cupboard for extra storage space near the entrance.
The quality of the apartment is very good and there are excellent fixtures and fittings. The rooms are of a good size and having 2 toilets is very important. The apartments are suitable for those who become less mobile, with larger size entrance to rooms with wide doors, lower than normal sinks, shallow baths and wide hallway.
