The Broadway, a mixed-use development with a central spot on Tooting High Street, is also popular.

Overall impression is good, design very modern and the quality upholding well. There is good facilities and open common areas and a decent parking lot. Good security system and the common areas like lobbies are kept very clean. Customer services helpful and I think it is worth the money.” – Crest Nicholson review by Bill T, resident at The Broadway.

Crest Nicholson reviews

The apartments are set back from the main road yet close to many transport links. There is a public park at the rear of the development and a communal garden within the development. Our apartment has been finished to a high standard with quality finishes. We are so pleased with our first London property.” – Crest Nicholson review by Leroy, verified resident at Wood’s Road.

I chose to rent at Regent’s Place in Bromley because it is a lovely flat in prime location. I have been living here since November 2018.

We did have a few issues when we moved in. There was no hot water and the walls weren’t very clean, but the hot water issue was resolved the next day and the walls were fixed soon after. The building management were quick to respond to any issues we had, and I am happy with the management of the building. We also have a Facebook group where if we have any issues, we can report them on there. The building’s caretaker is also on there, who directly deals with any issues and is always eager to respond. Every few months, there are also meetings with the building’s management team where residents can raise any issues they have with residents being alerted to these meetings via notices in the entrance to the development.

I have a central flat with a lovely balcony, which has beautiful views over the gardens and a nice view of Shortlands. Although the balcony is small, it is protected by glass and we have a greenhouse on it where we keep our various herbs. We also have a small table and chairs on our balcony, and we eat lunch on it whenever we can. I would describe the interior of my flat as quite minimalist with white walls. I really like our large wardrobe, which is its own separate small room. The kitchen has lovely counters and the bathroom is a nice size. We are able to decorate the flat, but we need to get direct permission from our landlord. Our flat didn’t have any curtains when we first moved in, but our landlord was quite happy to sort this out.

I was already friends with a few of the residents living at Regents Place, but I don’t know all of my neighbours. There have been some occasional issues with noise, but not a lot.

The flat is prone to flooding and leaks, but nothing too serious. The lift is also occasionally out of order too. However, overall it is a nice place to live.

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

I really like the location as it is really handy and convenient. It is easy for commuting into work with the nearby Bromley South and Shortland stations and it is an easy walk into town. We are regular customers at the Turkish restaurant nearby as well as Franco Manca, which we both enjoy. There is a real variety of restaurants in Bromley and it has everything you need. The new cinema at St Mark’s Square is also great and really cheap.

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

I would’ve liked to have known about how the heating system and payment work.

We love living here. Our flat is spacious and bright with a view over leafy south London. The location is excellent, with Cossall Park on our doorstep and all that Peckham has to offer close by. Amazing transport links – we can get to London Bridge in 15 minutes. As some reviewers have mentioned there were a few issues with the build, but Crest has worked to put things right. We have great neighbours and there is a real community feel in the development.

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

We lived in Peckham for six years before purchasing our flat. This area is changing rapidly and a lot of things are being improved. We love the close links to central London, the tightly knit community, cafes and restaurants, and amenities for kids.

I’m really happy with my flat and the quality of the build, although we did experience issues with the completion date which was delayed several times. The only negative is the empty buildings surrounding the development that have been boarded up. It makes the development look unfinished and there is graffiti on the boarding which is unattractive.

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

Really close to train station with great transport links. Nice restaurants and pubs popping up in the area. Really like the bin and bike storage and green space. Feels secluded and very secure. Street is quite dark which doesn’t feel as safe, could do with more lighting. Also empty buildings surrounding development and huge boarding looks unattractive.

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

Wish I’d known we’d be delayed by so many months before move in so I could have arranged somewhere to live and wouldn’t have had to keep moving stuff around. Also wish I’d known that the empty derelict building outside would still be there a year later as it wasn’t present on the CGIs or images we were shown of the development before purchasing.

Amazing views, some of the best in London as its on a hill. Great place to live as you’re surrounded by career driven people. Modern and clean. Well finished. There’s underground parking with a concierge, although guests can’t use it. Guests however can park outside on a weekend. Bike storage included and a very nice community.

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

East putney has easy access into the city. Close to the river so nice outdoors and green spaces. Infrastrcture is quite good and good access to underground and overground

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

I was very suprised by the views over london, which i didn’t expect

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The developer fixing snags within the first year instead of letting them drag out.
