In my opinion there is only one good thing about Brandywine: the location. There is a Kroger and a quaint little shopping area directly behind the complex, which is handy. As for the apartments themselves, DO NOT GET ROPED IN. The leasing office is nice and the landscaping is pretty, giving the impression of quality. But the apartments themselves are old and unremarkable. The appliances are ancient, and while they are finally getting around to replacing them, they're also raising rent by $40, even for people who have been living here for years. Ha! The carpet was dingy when I moved in and the whole space just looks dated. They don't allow smoking anymore. They told me I couldn't even smoke in my car in the parking lot. Pets are allowed but the pet deposit is outrageous ($300). I was blamed for pet messes multiple times when I always picked up after my dog outside. If someone wrongly blames you for a pet mess, you can be charged for $50, regardless of whether or not you are at fault. There is also a huge pigeon problem, though admittedly I do think pigeons are kind of cute. Rent is due on the third, which is frustrating since most other complexes give you until the fifth. I imagine this is intentional, however, because they will destroy you with late fees. I would always get notes on my door, faithfully, almost every other day saying that the fat ass check I wrote still wasn't enough, that they still need 20 bucks, etc etc. The staff, in my experience, has always been very condescending. Before Brandywine I stayed at Raintree, and while the apartments there were dated as well, the price of rent reflected that fact, and you didn't have to pay until the fifth. It wasn't glamorous, but it at least felt fair, and if you broke lease you just had to pay a fee. It wasn't a huge ordeal to leave. Meanwhile, at Brandywine, if you break lease you have to pay for the remaining months in full or they will take your ass to collections, and you also have to give a 60 day notice before getting out. Anyway, it was my own stupid decision to stay at Brandywine in the first place, but I deeply regret it. I'm just trying to give a heads up to anyone else out there; Brandywine has the same generic cookie-cutter apartments as most other complexes, but they are priced like a luxury resort. There are places of equal quality that are much cheaper and less of a hassle. I'm glad I got out!

Lived here 4 years now. Great service. Best bang for your buck in Lexington. I've never had any problems living here besides the expected normal occurences of urban living. If you don't like it, buy yourself a freaking house in the sticks. Brandywine is an awesome place to live. I love it here. I just renewed my lease for 2012!

ok place to live, but don't break your lease! they will come after you! they'll promise that they'll try to rent your place out, but they won't. i lived there for 6 years, paid my rent on time, never complained. when i told them i got a job in another town and had to move, they told me i owed them 5 months rent for breaking my lease. they didn't care that i couldn't afford to pay, i just had to. they sold my lease to a collection agency without trying to rent my place out. they got their money and now collections is trying to get it from me. if you do lease from them, read the fine print or better yet, bring a lawyer with you.

Everything about Brandywine is BS and a scam. They only accept rent during the 1st-3rd of the month (instead of 1st-5th like every other apartment, they hope you don't pay it in time, so they can charge the extra fees) they have a terrible pigeon problem that they will not fix, these filthy birds cause so much harm to the apartment balconies and they're all over the pool areas too. They said they'll do a free cleaning, but you're responsible for screening your balcony. If the problem insists, you'll have to pay for them to clean it again and again. They charge $300 for a pet fee and only give you half of that back. They make you sign a document stating "if you damage the carpet, you're subject to pay $800" The apartments are not in the best shape, either. The appliances are at least 10-15 years old. The fridge is small and always leaking. The garbage location is a complete joke, they have 1 garbage bin for the entire residents!!!! There are at least 200+ residents at all times. Most of the time, you can't get your trash in the bin and have to lay it across the bin. This is a constant problem. Their "fitness" center is not free, and they charge you around $10-15 a month, they barely have any equipment worth using. It's a total rip-off. If I could give this apartment complex 0 stars, I would. Steer clear of Brandywine.....

If you enjoy rude/dumb staff, pigeons, over priced rent, old apartments, etccccc... then Brandywine is your apartment getaway! When you sign a lease you have agree to pay $650 for new carpet (if any damages occur on it) so, this means if you spill or drop anything and a minor stain will cost your $650. They also, require $200 for deposit and only half is refundable. Pet fee is insanely outrageous, $300 for one animal, and only half is refundable. Rent is due for only 3 days ($40 or more, each day it's late), unlike most apartments 5 days after the beginning of the month. The best part is the pigeon problem, so if you live on the second floor, you better enjoy the sounds and smells of pigeons, they refuse to do anything about it, unless you pay for screening to keep the pigeons away. So, the apartment complex is a huge joke, I regret ever signing a lease with Brandywine. I also forgot to add, how they charge $20 a month for their "fitness" center, that barely has any equipment in it.
