The Residence is immediately adjacent to the Broughton Primary School and as such there will be an inevitable level of noise heard from children playing during their breaks, both during the school day and at afterschool clubs. Residents must be willing to accept that an element of noise from the playground forms part of community life in this location given the proximity of the School. If however you will be looking to work from your apartment during weekdays or will be keeping irregular hours during your stay please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you in an apartment which located in the most appropriate part of the building

As a number of the apartments consist of mezzanine deck levels and stairs they are unfortunately unsuitable for small children
