News Flats in Colindale

Where is Colindale?

Colindale is situated between Edgware, Harrow and Brent Cross. It’s a busy place with lots of traffic and people, but its main drag is Edgware Road. This is a colourful cornucopia of shops and restaurants, many of which have stood the test of time for decades. Largely independent, they’re fun to explore. But if it’s brand names that suit, the much-loved Brent Cross Shopping Centre is less than a 10-minute drive away. This is the first standalone mall in the UK. Away from all the bustle and not too far from the town centre, you’ll find ample green spaces. These include Fryent Country Park as well as the ancient hectares of Hampstead Heath.

Colindale transport

Speaking of connections, Colindale has plenty to brag about. Road links are tricky to beat, with the M1, A41 and North Circular all nearby. Colindale tube station is in Zone 4, and its Northern line trains run to business HQ hotspot King’s Cross St. Pancras in just over 20 minutes. Likewise, you can reach the glittering West End in half an hour. Similarly, there’s also a frequent and reliable bus network in these parts.

For easy station access living in Colindale, there’s Rhythm – an ultra-modern development from Fairview New Homes, right across the road from the Underground. Moreover, Galliard Homes’ Silver Works is just a little further along. Used during World War I by the Royal Air Force, today it’s a collection of apartments, suites and townhouses.

“I really like my apartment – it’s open-plan, modern and spacious. Everything works really well and the building management are quick at fixing things.” – Anonymous, verified resident of Silver Works.

NW9’s multi-cultural flavour

This is a richly diverse postcode, and that’s what gives the place its edge. On one corner you’ll find a boutique selling intricate sari silks, on another a Polish supermarket. Colindale restaurants, meanwhile, dish up fare from all around the world. One of the area’s most celebrated gastronomic attractions is Bang Bang Oriental, a blend of Asian street food, sumptuous massage parlours and a huge Chinese restaurant.

Best places to buy or rent in Colindale

The big developers have cottoned on to the area’s offerings with the likes of Berkeley Homes moving in with contemporary residential developments such as Beaufort Park. It is a purpose-built neighbourhood in its own right. Residents here have access to immaculately landscaped grounds and a luxury spa.

“It has everything you need within walking distance. A tesco, Sainsbury’s, a Chinese, Italian, pub, dry cleaners, swimming pool, gym, spa and underground all within a 10 minute walk. The estate management is open 24 hours and are very helpful when needed. It’s a nice safe area and not too busy. Everyone is friendly and feels very safe to go jogging at night. It’s a little bit pricier then apartments in surrounding areas but overall I would recommend.” – Lucy, verified resident of Beaufort Park.

In addition, snaking off of Colindale’s main roads are quiet, leafy residential streets neatly lined with houses from the 1930s. These have attracted a large number of families to the area, along with a good standard of education in primary, senior and faith schools.

One of best places to buy or rent in Colindale is Colindale Gardens, a new-build development from Redrow Homes. Offering a host of layouts, including studios, one to four-bedroom apartments, and three and four-bedroom townhouses, it’s a good option for families looking to move to Colindale. Help to Buy is available here, too.

Great place to live with easy access to London

Review Date Aug 2022

Zenith house is 8 mins walk from the tube station so very easy to access underground.

Lots of super markets and new restaurants as well as a Oriental Food Hall within less than a 5 min walk.

Off street parking is available for those who don’t own a car park. Bins are stored in a dedicated store room and cleared once per week.

Please review your development:

NHG are the managing agent for Zenith house. While every management company has their own nuances, NHG do a good job addressing issues as they arise and keep residents well informed.

There is also a concierge and security available every day of the week who can be contacted to deal with any issues.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

That the area is under redevelopment and therefore likely to have significant growth (positive) in the next decade.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Snaggings were tracked and cleared within a few months of moving in.

Nice and pleasant living

Tesco express and Sainsbury nearby, quite a lot of supermarkets near Colindale Station, generally low traffic noise.

Please review your development:

Satisfied with St.George development from Berkeley Group, the whole purchase process is quite smooth, handover date is earlier than the expected month which is quite surprised for me. Dilpreet has done a great job on the aftersales follow up, such as arrange handyman to help hang my rails and curtain, assemble cabinet, etc. Will surely recommend this developer to my friends.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Generally nice, however, the refrigerator size is quite small, barely enough for 3 adults.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Build management is nice and helpful, but concierge sometimes missed my emails and forgot to respond and follow up, still have room for improvement.

Decent developement but with room to improve

Review Date Aug 2022

The property has nice facilities within the development ( gym, shops, restaurant) however it’s quite a distance to the nearest bank branch and the walk to the tube station is long when the weather is horrible.

Please review your development:

The initial customer service is very nice. It’s good that there is a garden and a gym &spa within the development. The indoor car park is nice and clean, however, where you actually park will depend on the availability as they sell the right to park and not an exact parking bay.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The fact that we can’t choose our own electricity supplier

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Relatively fast during the first few months when we first settled in, which was helpful.
