I'd like to get some input from anyone who has stayed at a low floor with an open terrace. I was shown two apartments today, one on the second floor and the other on the fourth floor, each with a good sized open floor terrace. The terrace on the first building went around the side and front of the apartment was almost as big as the 350sq ft apartment itself which I found to be a plus.
Both are away from main roads but there are lots of shops and restaurants in the area so I'm assuming there will be some noise related to those businesses like early morning or late night deliveries.
Other things like rubbish from other floors, drainage when it rains, or anything else I should know about living in these type apartments. The first apartment with the larger terrace is mostly covered but there is a large portion of it that is open. I don't know if living there means I will regularly have to clean trash thrown out of higher floors from the roof of the covered area or that sort of thing.
