Anthology developments

Anthology developments on HomeViews include Deptford Foundry, Hale Works and Hoxton Press – all of which pair stylish, modern apartments with top London locations. HomeViews reviewers have sung the praises of the Anthology team, and regularly comment on the quality of their homes and the first-class service they receive…

I realised right away that Hoxton Press was unique and completely different to what I have seen before (I had been flat hunting for a few months before that and had seen a fair bit of what was out there). I also loved the location as it is right on the doorstep of Shoreditch park and the Regent’s canal while only being 20 mins away from the City. The sales and marketing suite people were professional and extremely helpful.” – Jenny K, verified resident at Hoxton Press

I bought off plan over 2 years ago, throughout that time Anthology have been there every step of the way with me. Everyone has been incredibly helpful, nothing is too big or too small that can’t be dealt with or answered. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, special thanks to Georgia for making everything so easy.” – Farrow, verified resident at Deptford Foundry

Appalling aftercare

Verified Resident

From moving in there were a number of defects that were clearly evident but had been missed. It’s been 7 months since I bought my place and still, the majority of repairs have not been done.
Anthology has not once contacted me directly, they’ve lied about repairs that haven’t taken place and repeatedly committed to dates for repairs which haven’t materialized.
All this whilst they continue to build a development up the road. I’d advise you check the property before committing.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

The defects to be repaired. If possible I’d change the companies I’m trying to deal with to fix these issues as well.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great area around here, close transport links.

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

The defects and how long it would take to repair the simplest of things.

Amazing view, great design and friendly staff

Verified Resident

I’m a first-time buyer and have been living here since June 2019. The design of this development is smart and modern (love the spacious kitchen/living room), and the 2-bedroom flats are especially perfect for first-time buyers who occasionally have family visits.

Location: I heard about the Deptford area being ‘rough’ before moving in, and we did recently experience a bike store break-in (thankfully the management quickly responded by applying an extra lock). But other than that it feels perfectly safe and convenient (4-min walk to shops and bus stops). The only downside being it’s slightly far away from any tube (nearest overground is New Cross, 10min walk. Convenient if you’re heading to London Bridge/Cannon Street though).

Service-wise, the sales staff has been very helpful and patient during the quite painful legal process of my flat purchase (more than my solicitor!). After moving in, the customer care team were helpful and responsive, which I appreciate very much. It’s worth noting that the concierge (Terry) is absolutely brilliant and he and the team really helps you to resolve various daily issues.

The repairs of the flats, however, are managed through an online system, and it can be quite slow because you’re not sure when the tickets will get picked up – but eventually things get resolved (just need a bit of patience and chasing). *My flat was a show room, so that might have been the reasons to the various repairs so far (esp window and lights).

Overall I enjoy living here, and I’m sure with the completion of the development early next year, things will get more convenient (hearing about a new cafe and a bar?).

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The view on the southeast (Deptford) and north (Isle of Dog and O2) of this development was the prime reason for my purchase.

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

Do a thorough check if you are buying an ex-showroom, esp lighting and utilities.

First home, couldn’t be happier.

Verified Resident

We’ve had a great experience so far and I’m sure it will continue. Build quality and finish of the development is high, and the pedestrianised central through-way along with the studios in some of the lower floors really makes it feel like its own space.

Building management and concierge service have been good at informing us of things going on with the development, though sometimes forget to update regarding packages being delivered through the web portal.

On the whole, we love our apartment, the development and the area, and are looking forward to seeing it grow as the final few buildings are finished.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great train links into central London. Also a cycle quiet way which is good for a cycle commute. Some great shops and pubs near to the station and along the Deptford Highstreet and more just around the corner in Greenwich, New cross etc, well worth exploring off the beaten track. Lots of green space close by in the form of Greenwich, Deptford and Southwark parks.

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

Nothing really. We were well informed and all our questions were answered promptly by the Anthology team.

Amazing development!

Verified Resident

The development has been completed to a high standard and it’s appointed beautifully. It often feels more like a luxury hotel than a flat! Although the buying process was lengthy (due to help to buy and mortgage lenders), the Anthology team were really helpful and quick to answer questions. I am really pleased with my choice of apartment, which is mainly down to the help of Paige who took time to understand my needs and find the best property for me at Anthology Deptford Foundry. I really couldn’t fault my flat, I am so pleased with it!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I love Deptford – it’s a great community with good transport links to central London, shoreditch and further afield. There’s lots going on, from the junk market on a Saturday to life drawing at the plant shop Forest

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

I wish I had known about the community FaceBook group that has been set up – I only knew about this after meeting the admins for the group!
