A Second Home

Living at Sunday Mills has been an amazing experience, characterised by a blend of comfort and opulence. The establishment exemplifies the concept of luxury co-living in London, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to reside here.

Sunday Mills boasts exceptional amenities such as a lounge, cinema room and roof terrace. However, what sets the building apart is the capaciousness of the studio apartments themselves, which offer an abundance of storage space. As an attribute that is often elusive in the realm of studio living, my shoes have greatly benefited from this. The studios also feel light and airy, owing to their artfully designed spaces which attract natural lighting. This, in addition to the Japandi style decor add a touch of luxury to the overall ambience.

Another feature I have benefited from is the efficiency of the parcel system. As someone who is often away from home, I appreciate the peace of mind that comes with knowing my parcels will always be safely received.

All said, what truly makes living at Sunday Mills such a great experience, is the warmth and friendliness of the staff. The concierge and lettings team have been a delight to interact with. They are always available and ready to lend a helping hand, going above and beyond to ensure residents’ needs are met. From the moment I viewed the apartment, to the day I moved in and throughout my residency, the staff have made a seamless effort to make this apartment feel like home. The dedication and care of staff members including Caitlin, Asher, Amarez, Ethelin, Arslan, Antonette and Kash have truly transformed Sunday Mills into a place that feels like family.

If you’re looking for a co-living space in London that offers both convenience and a sense of community, I highly recommend Sunday Mills.

Outstanding in every way.

The development is great – so many amenities. The screening room and social areas are great for catching up with other residents and having friends over. Co-living in this building is seamless – there’s lots of different places to cook, chill and catch up with friends.

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

The local area is great. Lots of nice local pubs and shops, and only a five minute walk to Earlsfield Station which is so well connected.

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

I truly couldn’t have expected better staff. It really makes the place.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Everything is dealt with immediately – no issue is too small for the team. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

The ultimate Co-living experience in London

The building design is very relaxing and minimalistic, evocative of a more sustainable way of living that helps to enjoy living inside and create a neutral space to facilitate interactions.
Facilities are wisely and conveniently positioned, like the gym that is hard to forget after a tour, with Technogym top notch appliances, located in the basement along with a modern launderette with lots of robust machines and fast app, a game room with a huge screen and consoles, ping pong table, and so on. The basement also includes a soon to come storage units, bike racks, and a clean refuse rooms with recycling bins as well.
Other interesting aspects of facilities are the cubicles for meetings and privacy in the working area, a huge kitchen at the 7th floor with different appliances including blender, toaster, air fryer, along with all you might need to cook and enjoy a meal.
There is also a small library to read in a quiet room and last but not least, a parcel deposit managed via app that I think is a game changer when it comes to delivering and collecting parcels avoiding long queues and missing items.
Property is well managed so far, including daily cleanings of local areas, support for any enquires, weekly events and convinient app to manage the essential aspect of the co-living with ease.
I’ve been in other co-livings in London and this one seems to have improved from them, addressing all the pain points and finding a sweet spot between the current co-living offer and demand, especially in the room size and space allocation, design and facilities along with modern common areas that are more close to the needs of members.

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

Despite not being in a more served area regarding public transport, It provides more quiet environment to relax, good after long hours of commute and work in the busy centre and it feels generally safe to get around and about.
The local area provides conveniently positioned grocery stores (Co-op), Pharmacy, GP, a French Brasserie, a small bar at the entrance of a gym and a self storage service to drop some extra boxes (the residence also provide storage units in the basement).
Two steps from the Residence there is direct access to the side walk of Thames with a Uber boat stop just nearby, to enjoy a different way to commute during a sunny day.
Overall is a pleasant location, especially for working from home far from the noisy chaotic city life.
Transports are also accessible walking distance including bus and Clapham Station to pop in Battersea Power Station or the Battersea Park during a sunny day.

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

I haven’t had a tour before moving in, so for me was actually all new, but I have to say it not only matched but surpassed my original impression based on the website pictures and info and previous experience in other co-livings.
The only thing I would recommend to get is a dehumidifier as the rooms tends to be a bit warm due to the way there were designed, definitely a smart move for the rigid winters but can be a little bit stressful during a hot wave.
Also would recommend to get bed linens and pillows before moving in as they’re not provided.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The team generally try to quickly sort out any issue based on availability of the maintenance and the nature of the issue. Still a bit of working in progress in terms of app and check-in, check-out procedures due to the recent opening, but everything seems to be addressed quickly and smoothly by the team.

Great place to life – perfect balance of privacy and social life

The studio design is great. I was suprised when I arrived that the studio is actually more spacious than it looked like on the pictures and videos. The bathroom is a dream with the rainshower and the combi microwave oven in the kitchen works like a normal oven. I was also pleasantly suprised of how well the walls are isolated – the only thing I can hear from neighbours are the studio doors when they come or leave. The communal spaces are frequently cleaned and always look tidy. The co-working space is great if you work from home or just want to sit somewhere else when studying. The Gym has everything you need with Technogym Equipment and can be accessed 24/7. The communal kitchen and living room area on the 8th floor as well as The Hub downstairs are a great spot to socialise and meet other residents or to hide and read a book (the building is massive so there is always a quiet spot). There is also a screening room with a Playstation which can be used by residents. Callum is an absolute star when it comes to organising Events which cater to lots of different tastes: be it a social gathering with tasty drinks, some crafting and baking, workout sessions or Drag Race watching – everyone can find something they enjoy. I love that The Palm House offers the perfect balance between privacy and social life. Any issues I had so far were promptly dealt with either by the lovely reception team or Daniel himself. I can highly recommend!

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

The location is super convenient. Only a 7‘ walk to Harrow & Wealdstone station which has National Rail (with frequent trains to Euston in 12‘), Bakerloo Line as well as Overground. Wealdstone High Street is around the corner with plenty of independent shops as well as Asda and Iceland. Lots of Take Away places as well. There is a Tesco Extra about 12‘ walk from the house. Harrow On The Hill Station with Metropolitan Line is approx 30‘ walk or 10‘ Busride away. Next to the station is a Shopping Centre which has a Lidl, Primark, Deichman, H&M, Boots etc. I often come home late and always felt safe walking from the station to the building.

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

The smart TV in the room is on Hotel mode which means you either need to connect your laptop with a HDMI cable or use a Streaming Stick to use streaming services App. I got myself a FireStick and now it works perfectly.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I didn‘t have many issues so far but the few times I raised something it was dealt with either immediately or the next day.
