Reviews

There are a range of people living in Pulse Development, families, singles and couples and in the two years that my boyfriend and I have rented, there has been a number of new commercial units that have opened. This includes two supermarket local stores, 3 restaurant/ cafes a gym, a chain coffee shop and a bakery. With more units to come. The apartment that we rent is furnished to a very good standard.” – Kate L, resident at Pulse

Good place for kids

This is a nice place for kids. There is a playground and lots of grassy areas. I dislike that in my building there are a lot of stairs, It would be helpful if there was a lift.
Also, the walls are very thin. I though because it was a new build that it would be quiet, but I can hear other tenants up and down stairs.
My landlord is very quick at solving issues. However, there is a rat problem in the development that no one can seem to fix. They always find a way in.
There is a major issue with cars driving down the private road like it’s a highway, you have to be vigilant about the cars at all times as my kids playing like playing in the playground in which they have to cross the road to get to.
There is a school very close by, a 2 minute wall that is very good if you have children.

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

I dislike that the shops are all very far away.

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

That I would hear noise from neighbours up stairs.

I like that it’s clean there’s a cleaner responsible for the communal areas which keeps it clean. I like the consierge downstairs gives that extra added security and atleast I don’t worry about missing my parcels as the consierge can sign them for me! But that comes with a cost though it’s annual maintenance fees are too dear as a result of that! Every fixture on the property is on the cheap- basic end say for example the taps, toilet, kitchen cabinets, windows, bathroom, carpet, everything-even the walls feel hollow when you tap them, can’t hang up Anthing heavy on the wall as it may not hold and come crushing down. No sound proof I can hear my neighbors putting a plug in the socket and switching it on and off. May be they are heavy handed but I mean come on! On a Sunday afternoon having a nap- I’m rudely woken up my banging from the neighbors I think they are installing a new floor or something guessing from the pattern and sound of the rustling.

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

It’s two minutes walk from a bus stop that has not 1 but 3 night buses so you can travel anytime if you don’t have a car. Within easy reach of about 4 rail stations. It takes 15 minutes on a train from Victoria to East croydon station it’s unbelievable! It’s within easy reach of local shops and there’s a Tesco local that’s open till late even on a Sunday. You can pop out fetch a pint of meal and be back in your apartment in under 10 minutes! Lots of shops and restaurants within reach and good connecting transport links with Wimbledon, Brixton, Gatwick, tooting m, Victoria to name but a few

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

How expensive it would be in the long run

Pulse Development was one of the first new developments to be completed in the area around Colindale Station. There are now many other competing developments that are either completed, nearing completion or mid development. There are a range of people living in Pulse Development, families, singles and couples and in the two years that my boyfriend and I have rented, there has been a number of new commercial units that have opened. This includes two supermarket local stores, 3 restaurant/ cafes a gym, a chain coffee shop and a bakery. There are also more units yet to be opened. The apartment that we rent is furnished to a very good standard, something that is hard to find in non development units and the furnishings in the units are of a high standard. We have had one rent increase in the last two years but this was to be expected considering the number of commercial units that opened in our first year here. We have really enjoyed our time here and have just resigned for our third year.

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

There are a number of building sites close by which can make the area look messy but it doesn’t really matter as you know the development will bring new commercial units. Really good transport links and close by to other superstores. Brent Cross is around the corner which is the closest retail stores slightly far but common in North West London.

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

In the developments to get high speed broadband you can only have one provider or pay more to get other providers to link to the one providers cables.

We love our flat and the area it’s in. Everything feels contained and safe as well as really immaculate and well maintained. It’s nice having such a lovely space in the courtyard and easy transport links into central. Each flat is an amazing size for the price and really well laid out. The management are good at keeping the grounds tidy but there have been some small communication issues with tenants and fairview. Other than than it’s great

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

Like – the grounds and the size of the flats
Dislike – there are lots of kids that run around and are really antisocial

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

I wish we knew we werent allowed pets and also that the carpets weren’t good quality
