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.
PROS: lots of services, good connections to all main parts of the city, good vibe, many parks at walking distance. Many bars and restaurants at 5 min walking distance.
CONS: The street (stockwell park walk) does not have any parking available.
The road is quite noisy because of traffic and the bus terminal, especially in the summer when we have to keep the windows open.
Please review your development:
Modern design, the quality of the finishes is not amazing but the quality of the flats is satisfactory.
Good facilities overall, like bike storage and bin room.
The building management is poor unfortunately, it takes a long time for SW9 to make repairs when needed. Service charge is not proportioned to the services received and increases yearly.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The amount of noise is something I did not expect. It’s manageable but exceeded my expectations
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
They scheduled appointments with the developer who came and fixed the issues (within the warranty period)
