We've been at atley for over a year now. It's our first place together after we got married. Initially the occupancy was low so parking wasn't an issue. Eventually with more occupants and multiple cars per apartment, parking became a problem. Hence some of the bad reviews. I know I personally had issues since the assigned spot went to my husband. But honestly, management took the right steps and right away to make additional spots and regulate. They did the best they could. I never have a problem now finding parking. The amenities are great- the pool, the club house, onsite maintenance staff and the gym! The fitness facility is well equipped and available 24 hours. The apartments are very modern, I absolutely love it. I know some of the reviews may be discouraging but it's worth a shot. We love our time here and are renewing for a second year.
Expensive for what it is. $200/month for garage (if you dont get one attached to the buildings, you won't be able to park 2 cars, please see other reviews which have already covered that issue). Even when provided the registration for both vehicles, they only gave out one parking decal, which is over-sized and yellow(?!) and has to be stuck on the rear windshield. Obnoxious. Appliances really are not that great, dishwasher leaks, lots of things were built in haste and with cheap quality materials. Horrible fluorescent lighting fixtures which don't use edison base lamps but the GU-24 base, so you cant easily change them out with something better, and they are always burning out. But there is gas, and your choice of FiOS or Comcast for Internet. Poor quality construction cause noises from other apartments, but this is the case with all apt buildings in the area. Looking forward to winter when the grounds keepers won't be out at the crack of dawn with lawn mowers and leaf blowers. I mean FFS, how often do you really need to cut the grass, and why at 8AM? This building is owned by a wall street insurance company. You either pay rent to live in this area, or you pay a bank and the state government to "lease" a home with a mortgage plus property taxes and HOA fees. You get screwed either way, so just bend over and take it like a man.
The Best Apartment Building in Loudoun County, The parking is great. They painted new lines further adding more space. The apartments are gorgeous and luxurious. I love the stone architecture. The management is excellent, you feel like you are living in a 5-star hotel. Excellent view and amenities and wide balconies. The security here is great, access control at its best. It is an awesome gated community and they also have a security company patrolling at night. I love it here and would definitely renew my lease.
I am giving one star because I am not able to give 0 stars. As everyone mentioned, Parking is... horrible, dreadful, awful, terrible, shocking, appalling, horrendous, grisly and unspeakable.
The parking is atrocious as you are only allowed one parking spot per apartment, but it is seemingly very slowly improving, as is the management. The maintenance staff are very responsive to attending to work requests, and it is a pretty quiet complex. The biggest issues are that there is not enough parking for the size of the complex, so forget having guests over and finding parking. I was told that the complex buildings were originally supposed to be built as a three-story maximum, but ended up being four stories, so obviously that means that there will never be enough parking - unless they create additional parking on the road that Atley owes behind the complex (Ryan Corner Place), which they discussed as an eventual parking solution.
