Absolutely wonderful place to live, worth every penny.

Review Date Jun 2020

I absolutely recommend Oxbow as a home suitable for anyone wanting a spacious modern living space close to the city centre at a very reasonable price. I was pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail in the finishes, including the camera system to let people in the building from your apartment and the water pressure of the showers. The high quality of the furniture is unmatched by any other buildings I have lived in, the bed and sofa in particular are extremely comfortable and luxurious. The storage space in the apartment is exceptional, from the huge double wardrobes to the kitchen cupboards, it allows me to easily keep the flat in a highly clean and aesthetically pleasing state. The building being pet friendly means I didn’t have to worry about my dog and the enclosed outdoor spaces are perfect for me to let him out. The communal garden area and rooftop terrace are absolutely stunning and the ideal place for a morning workout, game of table tennis or picnic in the sun. The building boasting its own gym which is included in the price is also such a bonus, it gives me that extra motivation as I can simply roll out of bed and go downstairs to exercise. Finally, the personal feel that building staff provide is incredible: the bottle of Prosecco, basket of essential daily items and a “welcome to your new home” signed card waiting for me in my new apartment made me feel at home straight away. All staff have been so friendly and accommodating to anything I have needed and are a credit to Oxbow.

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

I love that the area is a 20 minute walk to the city centre and that there is an abundance of shops and local amenities here.

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

The photos and videos didn’t do the apartment and communal areas justice, it was a lot more spacious and visually pleasing than I initially thought. Also I had no idea that the on site staff including cleaners and security (that I didn’t meet until I arrived) would be so incredibly kind and helpful to me.

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

Building management have responded in a very friendly and helpful manner to anything I have needed, it feels like they are always willing to go above and beyond to help.

Manager Response

Hi Leila, Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s been a pleasure welcoming you to the building, along with your adorable pet pooch, Theo.

A unique experience in city living.

An excellent development catering for a wide range of tenants from young business professionals, families, students, dog owners and couples returning to city living having spent far too long in the suburbs. This mix is one of the attractions of Sailmakers. The Sailmakers team could not be more helpful and their humour and professionalism have made our move here easy. The gym is fabulous – the 360 degrees views over London are a great distraction. The cinema room and business centre are an added bonus. The parcel room means you can just pop down and pick up any parcels on receipt of a code – no more waiting in on a delivery company. There have been a few teething problems with a lift and the entrance doors which are yet to be resolved. Similarly, the developer’s slow response in replacing cracked window panes is just a little infuriating. Sailmakers represents reasonable value for money if you make good use of the facilities. The location could not be better – just a few minutes from Canary Wharf with its fine collection of excellent restaurants and shops. The lack of traffic and fresh air here make it one of the most agreeable places to live in London. Views over The Thames, Greenwich, the City and Vauxhall are breathtaking. If you come here with an image of Canary Wharf in its infancy, you are in for a surprise.

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

As the owner of an old labrador not used to living in a city apartment, I was worried about moving here. It turns out that this place is very dog-friendly. There are dog parks, lots of traffic free walks along The Thames or the wharves or I can walk to Greenwich through the foot tunnel. The DLR has retained its futuristic feel and you can take dogs on it. The Clipper boat service is excellent and the Jubilee Line makes getting to central London a short jaunt. There are so many good restaurants to cater for all budgets. In short, you could quite happily stay in CW as it really has evolved over the years into a destination in itself. The added security in CW means that it feels safe if you are new to big city living.

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

I would like to have tested the sound insulation quality when viewing the property.

Luxury Living in the heart of Harrow!

Bradstowe House offers upscale living in the heart of Harrow with large open spaced apartments and great amenities like the residents lounge and private gym. The staff is always helpful and ready to answer any questions regardless of how small the issue. The apartments are large, have great appliances and are furnished with beautiful neutral tones for you to personalise however you like. In comparison to other properties in the area, this is by far the best value for money and space you will find.

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

The apartment block is a mere 5 minute walk to a major bus and train station (Harrow on the Hill) with great links to all parts of London. There are two shopping centres across the road and a large Morrisons on the other side of the property for all those last minute or late night shopping trips. Local restaurants and shops are within a 5 minute walk and the area is always a buzz with activity. For those keen on health and fitness, there is a massive gym at the bottom of the building as well as easily accessible beautiful parks in the area.

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

The apartments have windows that don’t really open much which makes it quite stuffy in the summer. The building offers free portable aircons for this period to combat this issue. However, I would definitely prefer windows that open properly.

I love the place so much, there is everything just perfect . Just one little things really annoying , people dont respect the garden downstairs. There is always dog poop . And it’s not hygienic for kids if they are playing there. I mean if your with your dog there pls clean after that because really not nice to see poop bags on the floor … and have to mention to the management .. more awful for the person who have to tell this to the management than to just to see that poop bag from the floor . Honestly. I love place and i could not wish better place than this

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

I cant remember right now

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

Maybe in the garden kids slide or something for kids more outdoor activities

Valuable Amenity

We are a family of four who were accustomed to living in a detached house with a spacious garden in our home country, Turkey. Considering the disadvantages of living in such a house with a high maintenance cost, struggling with vermin and pests and vulnerability, we decided to live in a flat here in Sutton when we moved to England. Before moving, we meticulously researched places where school offsted scores should be high and where crime rates should be low. Sutton came out from many resources.
Of the various alternatives around the area, No 16 Sutton Plaza seemingly has the greatest number of amenities in every respect as public, natural, safety and so on. This alone is enough to decide to move in. Over and above, you will see more inside. Staff is at service at all times, which makes you feel exclusive. Perfect sound insulation, adequate ventilation system and fabulous panoramic London skyline which, of course, is eligible for my apartment, Flat ## and the flats above us, are all the valuable assets of this development.
Nowadays we all feel tense, nervous and strained isolating ourselves during this lockdown. Under such adverse conditions having all negative feelings, you open the door and find three packets of quality teas on the threshold with a letter on saying good appetite. These people in the administration know how to make residents smile. We thank you very much for your generosity and efforts to make the residents join activities online to stay relaxed and well.
As for the cons, rental for a flat with two rooms is as high as a house with four rooms around the immediate area. It was much cheaper when we moved in June. House rentals in the area appear to have decreased.

Cordially yours
Mehmet Ozaksu

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

I should have learned whether the flat is eligible for homeoffice. Window cleaning twice a year is not enough for flats with huge windows.

What is the best feature of your home:

Day and night panoramic London skyline view seen from my flat makes me relaxed. Window frames are big enough to provide such a view.
