There’s been a huge resurgence in South West London’s property scene of late, namely because this is an area of the capital with so much potential. The term ‘something for everyone’ is thrown around wildly, but in South West London’s case it’s actually justified. This is an area that comes in all forms and guises, shapes and sizes. And that’s exactly why property developers have made it something of a playground. Read on to discover developments that are rated the best places to live in South West London. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in South West London.
The bars and restaurants are great – we are missing a decent mainstream grocery store but Waitrose is not too far if you’re able to walk and carry groceries. Transport is obviously in development with TFL still to open the Northern Line extension otherwise buses are frequent.
Please review your development:
The design and facilities are high-spec but overall the space usage is poorly thought out. The gym is too small for the number of residents, there is too much dead ‘lounge’ space in areas where there’s no need for it whereas there’s not enough ‘garden’ space for the amount of people/dogs. Overall what lets the development down is the terrible comms and approach from management. Whilst the rest of the BPSE Phases are in development we’re completely in the dark as to what our fees are paying for – the heating and cooling charges in particular are akin to daylight robbery and are fixed by management. Tenants are unable to distinguish ‘maintenance’ from other charges and so end up paying for costs that landlords should be liable for. Regardless, the charges are sky high. If you’re looking at a property, disregard the space in the ‘winter garden’ – management do not permit you to use it for any meaningful purpose, it has no power supply and is either far too hot in the summer (no blinds!) or far too cold in the winter (no heat/power in there).
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
How useless the ‘winter garden’ space is – it’s a considerable square footage of the smaller apartments and totally useless due to management rules on no furniture (or anything but a plant, on a table) and no heating/shade in there.
What is the best feature of your home:
High-spec fittings, close access to good bars and restaurants
