This development is really nice, I love living here. It’s family and pet friendly. I like my flat – it is spacious and has many big windows and a lovely balcony. I like the design, it’s modern. All neighbours are friendly and I feel safe here.

We are a big family, our flat is spacious and modern. Everything inside my flat is brand new and everything is good. I chose to live here because it is a good place for families, schools and parks too close by.

Large garden, good for pets

Close to shops, the neighbourhood is quiet.

Please review your development:

I would say parking isn’t great in the area which is an issue. The house has a lot of space and in my house pets are allowed. I have a dog and the garden is definitely big enough for it to run around.

Very nice area but a litter problem

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The traffic out side can be bad sometimes and we have problems with littering specifically McDonald’s litter. Not the best area there are some rough parts just around the corner and it can sometimes be pretty loud there. It does give an easy commute with the northern and jubilee lines being very close by.

Please review your development:

Everyone looks after the area, they clean the street aname keep their gardens very nice. There is plenty of shopping to do here at tescorts, waitress and sainsbury and there is also a local high street and many pubs that are lovely to go to. Travelling to Heathrow and Luton is very easy on the tube lines for holidaying and the motorway is great for getting out of London. The community centre here is great it has dance classes, yoga, creche and a really nice cafe for the whole development to ,wet in, it really gives you a sense of community. There is also a school nearby, a high school that seems very nice it has multi faith church and prayer rooms for students which is very nice. It is really Nice having a garden here as many London houses do not.

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

The McDonald’s nearby causes quite a lot of litter as people buy drive through and throw it out of the window as they drive past, it’s quite unsightly.

Nice and spacious flat, except for the kitchen

Review Date Jul 2019

The area is good. Good access to everything, including the underground and the shopping centre. It is half an hour away by car to Central London.

Please review your development:

It is a spacious flat but the kitchen is too small. It is like a box room. I live in a 4-bedroom flat, with a terrace. The flat is well finished but it is not an open flat. Outside there is no play area for the kids, which is a disadvantage, nowhere the kids can go to.

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

There is nothing I wish I had known.
