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

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

My own City-life living, with a Country-type view

I really love the fact the my apartment has a westward facing view, so I get the beautiful sunsets in the evening, and the view from my balcony looks across the beautiful gardens and lake. The lights around the lake give a romantic atmosphere, and the running water of the lake is so peaceful and relaxing, I’ve often slept with the window open in this hot weather, and the gentle running of the water has helped me to fall asleep easily. Some of the buildings in the development are not yet complete, so I can’t comment on the design of those, but with regards to the building I am in, I think the building design is really nice, and the interior design is also top class, with spacious rooms within the flat; and the flooring, white appliances and cupboards that the flats come with give an overall very modern and high quality look and feel.
I also love the spotlights in the kitchen and bathroom – just wish they would have put spotlights in the living room too – they make the rooms look more luxurious and warm!
The facilities are fine – there is no concierge or gym, but I am happy to be without these, as I already have a gym membership, and haven’t had any issues with deliveries.
With regards to building and property management, I would say they take good care of the gardens, and the building itself has been kept clean, although not all the street lights outside of the buildings are switched on – not sure why this is, but would be great for this to happen soon to make it feel safer. It would also be nice if the other buildings also got chairs in the main foyers, like Marquess House has, and maybe some sort of artwork or something in the main foyer to make it more homely. The other thing I think that it’s missing is the recycling bins – I think these will be coming at some point, but would be nice to have this sooner rather than later.
Also, I just wanted to mention that the showrooms were also very well decorated, showing off the flats in a beautiful manner, and gave me ideas on how to decorate mine too!
Overall, I’m very happy with my flat, and love living here.

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

The view from my balcony is amazing, and the transport links are good too:
– 226 bus from just outside the development (Ealing Brodway-Golders Green)
– 95 bus is about 5 mins walk away (Southall-Shepherds Bush)
– Park Royal Station is about 7 mins walk (Picadilly line)
– Hanger Lane Station is about 12-15 min walk (Central line).
The gardens and lake are beautiful, and the distance between the development and the office is also good. The balcony/terrace is lovely and spacious, and has doors to it from the living room and bedroom which is a very nice touch.
The only downside is the nearest local shop is a 10 minute walk, and the nearest supermarket is a 15 minute walk to Asda. I know we will be getting a Co-op within the development soon, so this is only a temporary drawback, and I’m really looking forward to this happening, along with the other amenities we were advised we would be getting (Nursery, Doctors Surgery, hair dressers etc).
With regards to the other amenities in the area, there is a B&Q which is not too far, and the Park Royal Leisure Park is about a 10 min walk, with a good amount of restaurants and entertainment (cinema, gym, and a bowling alley). As mentioned above, the transport links are good – the 95 bus route is very handy, getting me to Westfields White City in 20 mins (or by central line too), and the 226 to Ealing in 10-15 mins, so the area is well connected. My journey time to work is about the same as in my previous place, despite being slightly further out, so I’m happy with the transport links. The only thing I wish were the trains were a bit more regular – I was very used to my previous area having a train every couple of minutes, whereas now sometimes you can be waiting as long as 8-12 mins (which is not terrible either, just different to what I was used to and have to plan my leaving times better!).

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

To be honest, I don’t think there are any that I can think of.

What is the best feature of your home:

This is hard, as there are many things that I love about my new home, but if I had to choose one, it would be the view of the gardens and lake from the spacious balcony that I have.

Regency Heights is a well situated building that boasts well designed flats equipped with the latest equipment. The triple glazed windows make for excellent sound proofing and even though you are situated near one of the busiest junctions in London, you would hardly know it. The bathrooms are well sized and the water pressure is good.

One aspect that I think has not been done well is the intercom system to enter the building. It is sold as a video intercom system which is true for the initial door to enter the mail room. However, there is no camera to the second intercom system. Further there seems to be a security measure that prevents the inner door from unlocking while the outer door is open. Like an air lock on a spaceship. Or maybe it does. One can’t tell with only one camera but anecdotally this seems to be the case according to our visitors.

The rooms are well proportioned and square, which seems to be a luxury in new build architecture and all in all pretty sensible. Most rooms also come with a generous balcony that one can spend a sunny morning or evening on.

The development is situated on an “island” in the middle of a ring road but restrictions means that traffic is limited to the one bus route that runs past the development (Ealing Broadway to Golders Green) and residents who have parking. In the middle of the development separating Regency Heights from the offices on the other side of the “island” is a lovely piece of green space which makes for a perfect picnic spot. There is a distinct lack of accessibility to it as it is more or less only accessible via stairs. Finally, there is a park at the edge of the development with a children’s playground and a basketball court for those with families.

This particular development is a “car-free” development so parking is difficult to come by which may affect visitors who come from out of town and are not willing to take public transport.

As my family and I have moved in during one of the early phases, there is still a lot of building work going on and there have been some teething problems, mainly surrounding hot water provisions and the lack of broadband. However, Fairview Customer services have, to their credit, usually been able to resolve these issues quickly. The only drawback is the lack of responses on weekends.

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

Park Royal is ideally suited for transport connecting to central London with the Piccadilly and Central lines easily accessible from Park Royal and Hanger Lane stations. There are also decent bus routes to Ealing and Wembley. Further, access to the motorways leading West and North from London are easily reachable via the North Circular. All of this is very much necessary as there is not too much in Park Royal itself given the mostly industrial nature of the surrounding area.

Park Royal has an ASDA supermarket and there is a Sainsbury’s in nearby Alperton. There is also opposite an Oriental superstore.

Places to eat out can be found near the station and at the Park Royal Leisure Park with most of the large fast food chains represented but for anything more refined, one would probably have to venture further afield to Ealing.

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

I wish I had known that the broadband was not ready as this is quite an issue in this current climate of working remotely.

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

I would have added extra cupboards in the kitchen to full make use of the space on the wall and I would have made the splash board stretch for the entire wall too.

And rain showers because who doesn’t love rain showers.

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.
