Brixton station

Lambeth’s north

In its northern pocket, you can take a stroll along the waterside. Here you will discover big-hitters like the National Theatre, the Tate Modern, and the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. All of which are neighboured by a good mix of pubs and bars with a front-row view of the river. Lambeth Palace is another local star, a spectacular Medieval structure and the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury.  The Imperial War Museum also provides a lovely, moving day out; a fitting tribute to those affected by the past world’s conflicts.

Vauxhall new flats

Cultural melting pot

There’s a hypnotising, cosmopolitan feel to these parts. Places like Stockwell and Kennington have a Latin flavour, their high streets packed with cutesy tapas joints and Portuguese establishments serving fresh seafood. Over in vivacious Brixton, the area’s Afro-Caribbean roots shine, with reggae bars playing exotic beats until late, and an amazing foodie scene that incorporates street stalls sizzling with specialities like jerk chicken and ackee and saltfish. Hootananny is a much-loved hostel-come-nightclub that works to showcase the area’s diversity, with events dedicated to everything from hip-hop to salsa. And we can’t talk about the area without mentioning 02 Academy Brixton, an award-winning venue for music, theatre and comedy.

Property & transport

Lambeth’s residential options are vast, ranging from swish riverfront apartments to elegant period townhouses. Whatever you’re after, expect easy access to London’s centre. Three tube stations – Lambeth North, Waterloo and Southwark – get residents from A to B via the Northern line.

HomeViews reviewer says…
“The location is central and very well connected within easy reach of much of Central London both on foot and via the tube. Traffic can be quite congested and slow, there is also a fair amount of noise from the streets.”

Lots of building work happening is a negative. Doesn’t feel like a community or hub but I knew this as I moved in.

Please review your development:

The property itself outstrips the disadvantages of the area. It’s a really pleasant environment, lovely development and well managed. Really easy to move in and really easy to live happily. Furniture is good, insulation is great, haven’t heard another soul since I’ve been here when within the apartment.

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

As above.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Easier quieter place to be able to move in, had to move in with everyone coming and going around me.

Fantastic development, facilities and service are amazing

Please review your development:

The design, facilities and management are all great. I love the concierge. St James could be better though, their customer service isn’t great. I’ve had a few communications from her that have been quite rude and short with me which isn’t what I’d expect.

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

I wish I’d known how loud the trains would be, even into the night

What is the best feature of your home:

The facilities, especially the bowling alley and the gym

The Transport links are exceptional, with a train and underground station at a 5 Min walking from the development and bus station that leads to Liverpool Station or Central London right in front of the building. Also there is a stop in front of the building for cars to stop (UBER). In terms of shopping shops, there aren’t much around, although for groceries there is a nice Little Waitrose and a sainsburys at a 5 min walk. Regarding restaurants there is the Vauxhall type of restaurant close, nothing fancy.

Please review your development:

The local amenities are new and the design is really modern. The building management is extraordinary, always clean. And the Employees working in it (concierge or bartenders) are exceptional, always resourceful. The building have everything at need on it (lounge, gym, bar-rooftop, pool and terraces).

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

I wish i Knew that with Coronavirus there was some restrictions in place and the pool is under remodelling.

What is the best feature of your home:

The views of the city of London and the spacious Kitchen/Living room.
