Experience so far

Review Date Jun 2024

The area is poor – not much to do or see but it’s very quick to get into central london however the park and lakes are a real treasure.

Please review your development:

I’m impressed by the new build and apartment we rent. It does get a bit hot in the apartment due to insulation, however I’m confident this will be a blessing in winter. One major bonus is the concierge, the team is great but in particular Anthony is both mindful and watchful from a security perspective a champion of the building.

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

It was difficult to work with our landlord and estate agents, but we’ve quickly been coming to a better point in the road with them. The help from one agent in particular has been amazing.

What is the best feature of your home:

Balcony is an awesome feature in our particular flat.

House land lord is good but they are very slow at what they do. The local shops know how to take advantage.

Please review your development:

The top floor lounge relax area is a joke. The building security is a concern. The people who stay here are getting weirder, the tenants are now stealing products and other stuff and blaming it on the homeless people. It’s really weird that’s all I am
Gonna say.

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

About the top floor guest/ pound area. It’s bad. And no one allows us to use it.

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

They respond but they take hell lot of time to respond.

Nice new development, perhaps not in the best area

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2024

On the one hand, excellent transport connection (close to Victoria line / National rail stations), Asda/Tesco/Lidl/B&Q within walking distance. On the other hand, lack of local pubs/restaurants, shops, playgrounds for children.

Please review your development:

New building with shared gym, terraces, co-working space. Dogs are allowed! Both apartments and shared spaces have nice design and are high quality. Friendly and helpful people at the reception, responsive management. The rent increase is quite significant over 2.5 years of our tenancy though. Very smooth move out and full return of our deposit.

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

Noisy road outside (closed windows help, but it’s not an option for hot summer), endless constructions nearby.

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

Minor things may take some time to fix, but if something is urgent (we had broken apartment door handle and I could not enter the apartment) help comes quickly.
