|Recommended: NoBeautiful building, but incredibly noisy — We constantly hear our neighbors above us stomping around and sliding furniture across the floor, which has woken us up in the middle of the night or disrupted us while working from home. We’ve spoken to the neighbors and management numerous times regarding the noise level, but nothing has really changed. There were some communication issues regarding which apartment we were actually moving into as well. Additionally, our oven broke and we’ve been waiting for over 2 weeks for it to be fixed. We’ve lived in other Steve Brown Apartments before and have never experienced these issues.
|Recommended: YesBeautiful finishes and nice management — The buildings are beautifully decorated and nicely constructed. Quiet and very nice area to be located, close to Middleton Madison for anything that you need.
|Recommended: YesBeautiful but horribly noisy — The apartment has extraordinary finishes both inside and out that you typically don’t find in other apartment living. I especially love my spacious deck and expansive windows sliders. Noise level however is terrible. I have lived in other apartments and don’t recall ever living in one that has been this noisy. I am on the second floor and knew that there would be some level of noise, but it’s beyond worse than what I have experienced elsewhere. I would have hoped that knowing what kind of flooring was being installed engineered wood vs carpet in all rooms that additional thought and materials would have been used to reduce the sound to other apartments. Especially in an upscale apartment building in an upscale neighborhood. I hear almost endless stomping and pacing from my neighbors above. Can here when they pull out their counter stools. Get woken at 6am to more stomping and back and forth. Sounds like they are literally in the room. Interior shared side walls aren’t as bad but can hear music from time to time but that’s more normal and expected. This noise issue alone is making me already consider moving when my lease is up. Staff are friendly and have been mostly responsive but did have a couple hiccups with some miscommunication on the actual apartment I was getting and what was available. I had delays obtaining a storage unit key when moving in original didn’t work , I’ve asked about a key that will open the stairwell to the 1st floor because mine isn’t keyed to open it from the foyer, and haven’t heard about a resolution to that. I would recommend this apartment building to friends, but only if they could live on the top floor. Otherwise based solely on the noise alone from lower level apartments, no.
|Recommended: YesMasterly Designed, Comforts of Home — Our experience thus far at The Laurel has been outstanding. It has completely exceeded our expectations. The staff has been prompt and kind in their responses. We are extremely happy that we chose to live at The Laurel. Would absolutely recommend to someone looking for a new place to call home.
|Recommended: YesModern Apartment Community in a Quiet Neighborhood — The Laurel at Kilkenny is a beautiful complex with very spacious apartments. The units are bright and modern, with an open floor plan. The porch deck off the unit is a great size for watching the hawks and geese flying overhead, while providing adequate protection if you like to sit outside and enjoy rainstorms. I love the wood floors, high ceilings, wide doorways, and the wall of glass sliders and side windows which really brings the outside in. Having a washer-dryer in unit is a huge added bonus. I couldn't be more pleased with my decision to call the Laurel home'.
|Recommended: YesGreat place to live — I have been very impressed with my experience here at the Laurel so far. There are a couple of things that come with new construction, like the foundation settling and causing minor hiccups in windows closing correctly, but it’s to be expected. The hard floors make it a little easier to hear upstairs neighbors, but again, nothing is completely soundproof in an apartment building. Staff have been receptive, knowledgeable and accommodating, and maintain high standards when it comes to Coronavirus precautions.
