– Size and brightness of the flat is absolutely excellent. Most friends – including some architects – who visit have been astounded at how generous the spaces are (“Not at all like London new builds” has been a frequent comment).

– We were also lucky to get one of the three beds in the block facing Priory Park with the massive wraparound balcony. As the other blocks get built we’re realising that not all of them have the generous balconies and separation from adjacent block that the back ones do.

– Maintenance of the landscaping and internal areas has been good so far.

– Look forward to hearing what the ‘commercial space’ at the front of Upton Gardens is going to be. The area badly needs a cafe or two where you can buy a cappuccino. There were rumours that a Waitrose was part of the plan, if Barratt can indeed deliver that there would be nothing like it as we’re short of good supermarkets around here as well.

– The only negative for me in terms of build is that all walls are plaster board. Wish they’d gone with brick. You need to be constantly careful with the walls, and the acoustic insulation is poor.

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

The area offers excellent value for money, perhaps the cheapest you can find in zone 3 in all of London. Upton Gardens is very close to the tube station. Lots of good south Asian cafes and restaurants, the football pub at the corner has closed for renovations to make it a gastropub (should open by summer ’20), an excellent international grocery in Barking Road, a small but decent Tesco and good bus connections to get to Stratford.

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

That flats can be built with all walls plasterboard, and exactly how poor the sound insulation can be because of this.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best part about my apartment is the huge wraparound balcony that runs the L shaped length of the flat (85 feet or so).

Perfect home for disabled tenants

My apartment is a purpose build apartment for my disabled wife who benefits greatly from the wide doorways for her wheelchair and the bathroom has good facilities such as railings and open access. The grounds are looked after really well and the quality of the built was done with a lot of consideration.
I am a carpenter by trade and see that the decor and doors are really well designed.
I have never had any issues with security and as my whole block is made for disabled tenants, we get to really work together as a community,
In the past we have had muggings but has definitely calmed down recently.
Garden are looked after really well and i live on the back of the building so i get a lovely view of the communal garden.
It can be expensive for those not on social housing but very convenient.
Sky tv wasn’t working for a week and we had some issues with the water but other than that it is a perfect.
honestly, with my wife’s illness, this is the best home we could be in and I absolutely love it!

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

I was brought up in the area and it has changed a lot. It has become more cosmopolitan and really become a transportation hub.

Cinema and bowling alley are just 5 mins away which is great for my grandchildren. Parks are wonderful and we are able to fish in the lake!

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

I grew up in the area so i knew the area well and i loved the apartment

I really love that this development is in a contained and secluded area, you hear less traffic noises and more silence! The river nearby is a huge bonus, it creates and a great spot for walks or runs and the actual development itself has many green areas which is great for kids and dogs. It provides a natural and social element to the residence. The actual house is great! We have underfloor heating which is efficient in the winter and double glazed windows to trap the heat, however they pose as an inconvenience in the summer as it gets very hot and we don’t have AC. We are given extra ventilation, but its not enough. When we first moved in, our thermostat didn’t work, the heating was constantly on although we set the room temperature to 18 degrees this meant our energy bills were very high, maintenance dealt with this issue quickly and professionally. The level of light entering the house depends on the position of your apartment, in my old flat (same development) we got a lot of light however in the one we get less. The windows overlook the greenery of the development. The actual development offers many facilities such as a large gym, a concierge and very trustworthy staff. It makes me feel better about living here. The area is safe and very well connected. Theres Greenwich station nearby, many bus links and living near supermarkets such as Waitrose make this residence more convenient.

There are no facilities I would like added, most of the facilities I need are very close or offered on this develop.

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

Like – The river is at a good distance which means I can go on walks and just relax.
Dislike – Nothing, its really a great place!

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

I really wish I knew about it sooner, its in a great location and a very safe area.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

There are no facilities I would like added, most of the facilities I need are very close or offered on this develop.

The concierge team is lovely and very helpful. They work 24hours. We also got cctv which is good. There were a couple of incidents with people breaking into the parking area, though.
The buildings got a courtyard which is lovely, and I am also lucky t have a roof terrace.
I would say the facilities are all well-maintained. We got a yoga studio which I haven’t tried yet, and a gym which is quite basic but good. It is also really nice having shops in the development too, as they give some life to it.
The flat is also nice and the size is not bad. It was really good we could choose a lot of the things in the flat as we purchased while still getting built.
Overall I am really happy with the development.

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

Transport could be improved. For example with the 199 it only comes every 10minutes and in the morning they tend not to stop if too full. It os a 15 minute walk to Canada Water what is alright. The tube is fine. We got the junilee line which is great.
I like the scenery of the area. It is really nice. We got shops and nice cafes around. I also feel it is quite safe although there have been few issues.

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

I would say I knew everything before moving in here.
