Lewisham lies just a few miles south-east of Central London. A borough given a little more than just a fresh coat of paint in recent years. In fact, this area has seen plenty in the way of renovation. Including, a transformation of the town centre and a brand-new riverside park. As such, it moved at lightning-speed into the ‘up-and-comer’ category a couple of years back. Then, in the blink of an eye, it became highly sought-after, courtesy of its affordable homes and fantastic transport links. Read on to discover developments that are rated the best places to live in Lewisham. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Lewisham.
I love the location. The train/DLR station and different bus routes right at the doorstep. Grogery shopping is super easy because tesco, sainsburys and M&S are within walking distance. Super convenient to live here BUT the downside is the noise. Living right by the station means you hear the trains, and at times drunk people on Friday nights trying to catch the last train home.
Please review your development:
There is a small green space by the building but recently it had been changed to a not-dog-friendly zone….which is a bummer. I have two dogs and i need a green space for my doggos for their quick doggy break but, if they are going to continue to be strict then what’s the point of having that patch of green space..?? I heard that part of our rent is to pay for the maintenance of the area so, i am not really happy about that.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I didnt know that if you rented furnished and lived for over certain periods of time, the furnitures become yours…if i have known that i would have rented furnished.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
Reported some issues right after moving in. Super minor issues but it took a while to get it fixed…
On a side note, the elevatir keeps breaking down…!
