Back in the 1980s, Brixton was talked-about more for its high crime rates than anything else. But heavy investment and a host of new business have transformed this rainbow-coloured neighbourhood for the better. Brixton’s a creative hub packed with street art, independent shops and eateries. It has a sense of identity that any other London district would struggle to match. Read on to discover the developments that are rated as the best places to live in Brixton. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Brixton.
We’ve lived in Brixton our whole adult lives and we love it here. Amazing restaurants, great transport links and lovely parks within walking distance.
Please review your development:
Overall we’ve had a good experience with the development over the year and a bit since we moved in. There have been a few small teething issues and of course being so close to the train has some downsides but overall we love where we live and get to enjoy views of our favourite part of London every day. It’s very well soundproofed and we barely have to use the heating as it’s well insulated. It can get a bit hot in summer but that’s quite normal for new builds it seems.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
It’s hot in the summer, but it can be noisy when the windows are open. We invested in a quiet fan and some good blinds which keeps us cool.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Quite quickly and politely, though we haven’t had to raise much.
