If you haven’t yet heard of Deptford, chances are you will very soon. Artists, students, first-time buyers and lifelong Londoners; they gather in this exciting district, which has become as cool and sought-after as places like Peckham and Hackney. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Deptford. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Deptford.
The area is very pleasant, well connected and easy to get into both central London and the Docklands. Greenwich is a beautiful area and Deptford has some great bars/shops, it isn’t as bad as people would have you believe, though I wouldn’t go there after dark.
Please review your development:
Facilities are top notch, the apartment itself is finished to a high standard and the location is ideal for travel into the city or to Canary Wharf. Concierge is fantastic and very helpful, gym and roof terrace are great too. Very noisy main road, you can clearly hear footsteps above and bass from music on other floors most evenings, WiFi is also very patchy and all options are metered. The cladding is also falling off, hence the permanent scaffolding around the base of the building, the electrical sockets also frequently spark and lights will flicker when electronics are plugged in.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
It’s unbelievably noisy, I’ve lived in central London in similar developments for 5+ years and this is hands down the noisiest one.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Concierge has done the best they can though the management themselves hasn’t been involved with any of our issues whatsoever.
