It is a great apartment complex. Management is always around for issues, and problems are fixed promptly. They do a good job of keeping out the riff raff too. The office offers lots of programs for kids, like vacation bible school, movie nights, pizza and ice cream socials, puppet shows, activities, and a huge Halloween parade around the complex each year. They have had some awesome things for Halloween like a bounce house, actual camel (yes, camel) rides, bunny cages, bubble machines, etc. They also have visits with Santa each year, with pictures to boot. The visiting dentist comes around as well. The pool is always kept clean, and lifeguards are always on duty. The complex is situated adjacent to the state police outpost, which is a nice plus. There is a lot more that this complex offers; these are just a few. I highly recommend this complex.
I loved living at Braeburn Village Apartments. The office staff always very helpful and understanding. They make sure you are happy with them and the apartment. I lived here from 2005 until 2013. Yes they do have some issues but what places doesn't.
I lived in Braeburn Village from 1996 to 2001. So yeah, a long time ago! It was the best place I ever lived during my childhood (I was 12-16 years old). We had our fair share of mischief (our group of friends) and mgmt definitely knew us (I don't think Kathy and Ron are there anymore), but we were just kids passing time for the most part :). The complex is huge (about 40 buildings) and was always nice and clean when I lived there. I hear that in the years since that it had degraded in appearance. I also hear that, like most other apartments on the East Side, section 8 became accepted in Braeburn and that helped drive away some of the "nice quiet" atmosphere. It must have been 8 years since I heard this rumor though and if it was true, Braeburn may be back to the way it was back when I lived there. I do remember the townhomes being a bit outdated when I lived there (I had friends living in over 10 different places there, so I spent time in a number of units) so I can imagine it being quite outdated if nothing has changed. But I'm sure by now they are updating as they go, but don't know that for sure. Personally, if I still lived in Indiana, I would consider a move to Braeburn for the nostalgia factor, but I'm not sure what kind of complex it is today. I had some of the best times in my life while living there. The summer of '99 will always be unforgettable to me and my friends...hanging out at the pool, having sleepovers, playing tennis, hanging out at the old Safeway, and lots more. During winters, sledding down "Suicide Hill" (the hill on Franklin Rd at I-70 inside the complex property) was another thing to do. Based on all that, I would definitely consider moving back there if I lived in the area again because all that is still there (except Safeway). Not sure if it would be a good place for my daughter to grow up, but I'd still look into it. I haven't been there in 13 years. I just might scoop up an old friend or two from the neighborhood and cruise a lap around the complex next time I'm in Indy!
