The product has performed consistently to our entire satisfaction. In the shared right of way situation, without turning room at the end, such as we have here, the turntable is an invaluable asset. We are now able to park six cars with a clear driveway down one side, so that all residents enjoy the facility of off street parking and being able to drive off and onto a busy road without backing.
While neither of us who own the properties using the Carousel have any thought of selling, we have no doubt that the value of our properties has been enhanced through a fuller enjoyment of them by this facility in the way of off street parking and free access.
True, the installation seems expensive as an upfront cost, but it is relative to other major items in a development or home improvement costing. For our part, we would not have considered undertaking the extensive renovation and landscaping unless access could be improved. Thus the Carousel was an integral part of the planning and its cost ingredient just another item one complains about at the time, but in retrospect is recognised as money well spent.
