Countryside developments

Countryside properties on HomeViews include sought-after neighbourhoods like Greenwich Millennium Village (a joint venture with Taylor Wimpey Central London), St Paul’s Square and Hoxton Wharf – all of which team stylish apartments with well-connected London locations.

Many developments we looked at felt like they were just a faceless high rise and we wanted to make friends and meet like minded people. Greenwich Millennium Village has been perfect for us, with so many facilities on site and the open park areas you don’t feel that you are living in a city. We have also made lots of friends through the nursery and primary school.” – Margot, resident at Greenwich Millennium Village

East city point

Verified Resident

The design is great and unique compared to other new build flats. There is no concierge so Mail does go missing often. The property management company are not responsive enough on building issues but we are in the process of replacing them. Other than that it is a nice building.

My take on GMV

Verified Resident

Mine is the 2nd stage where it is next to a bus lane. I am not sure if it is how the building is structured or not being built properly, every time a bus drive by I can feel the vibration through the glass and the floors which gets annoying in night time. Also sound proofing is not that great either which is not helping. The apartment building that I am in does not have lift and being on the top floors means I have to walk up and downs those stairs every day despite I am paying the same management fees compare to other building in the same developments that has a lift.

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

Lots of shops around, cinema and IKEA both in walking distance. Two bus station away from North Greenwich tube station.

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

The toilet does not have an extraction system that they say it is a passive one and does not suck out any of the moisture or smell at all which is annoying.

What is the best feature of your home:

Very spacious one bed flat and feature a shared garden at the back of the apartment flat.

Resident Review

Verified Resident

Having been in the building from the outset, we’ve seen our fair share of issues but not uncommon to other new builds. The building is well looked after with the directors of the building made up of residents holding the property management company to account. As for a new build floor space is generous. Apartments are also very well insulated so heating costs are minimal. Summer can be a bit uncomfortable but nothing a good fan couldn’t sort.

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

Location is up and coming given its one of the London’s remaining areas to be gentrified. However, with the new stadium and proposed council investment this is likely to progress. The area has plenty of shopping options, a stones throw away with a grocery store and a GP on the ground floor which can be very handy! Commuting into central London is also very good, with the local line taking you into Liverpool in less than 30 minutes. Tottenham Hale connecting to Stansted for air travel is also not far making the jetset lifestyle alot more bearable.

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

The building is off a main road which can be congested and noisy. Not a problem with windows shut but very noticeable in Summer when windows are kept open.

What is the best feature of your home:

Location being so close to shops and also easily commutable to central London.
