We have now lived in Brooksby Village for 4 weeks and a few days. Pretty well settled in, but still more things to organize and a few more from the old place to bring up. Also still need to run wires to other speakers for surround sound and hang pictures. Our apartment is good sized - with lots of closet space - which is needed. The view out our windows are nice — some of them just facing the nearby woods. The walls are painted white (our choice) and flooring is wood-grainy-veneer — except for the kitchen, sun room (an extension to the living room with lots of windows), and bathrooms which are white pseudo-tile. We have few rugs in various places. Robert's piano, a 7 ft Steinway B grand, just fit into the elevator (the movers were skeptical — but we did a lot of measuring).
Dishwasher, garbage disposal, electric stove, ice maker in the fridge - all things that we've never had.
There are a few different eating places - food is good, but not spectacular. When you go to a restaurant they often ask if you want to sit at a table with other people and we do. The standard package has 1 meal a day - but we are switching to the 20 meals a month plan - and we won't use them all.
There is a fitness center - a short walk from our place in a connected building - not quite as elaborate as the ones I've paid to go to, but fine. Its impressive to see some people who are not in good physical shape using the fitness center.( Collapse )
