Helical reviews

“Barts Square has a prime EC1 setting on Bartholomew Close, just a short walk from the City and a duo of stations – Barbican and Farringdon. This mixed-use development has been designed as a tucked-away ‘quarter’ in its own right, with apartments spread across a handful of buildings that nod to the capital’s industrial past. Covering 3.2 acres in total, it’s made up of immaculate pathways, office space, and design-led shared spaces for residents to mingle in.” – HomeViews Property Pro on Barts Square

The area is convenient but the noise insolation of the flat is not top quality

The development is a bit noisy but I have chosen it because it is close to work. It is modern and functional as well. We have a 24/7 concierge and a home cinema, there is an underground parking as well. The finish of my flat is average. It is not top quality but not bad either. The concierge is very good.

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

We have a hospital nearby which is good. St Paul’s, the train station and Barbican are only 4 minutes away from here. The London Museum is moving here as well. It is convenient because you can get the train from Farrington to Heathrow and you can also get to Gatwick from here. The tourism is low here which is good too.

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

The noise insolation of the flat is not the best. There is a noise from the construction works at the moment too. You can hear the builders hammering on the walls. Whenever our neighbours are walking upstairs or using their washing machines we can hear that as well.

Are there any facilities you would like added, or that you have but do not use:

There is a home theatre and a lounge inside the development but you have to book it beforehand.

Up and coming

The windows in the house are amazing as they are floor to ceiling and the views are really really beautiful. It is a good location with good transport links but I do wish there was a bit more soul and stuff going on. Ideal for those who work in the city.

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

I dislike that its in the city so you feel like you’re at work and not really proper London. I do like that is close to my work.

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

That there would be lots of little issues due to it being a new build.

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

There have been a lot complaints and the management don’t really deal with the problem quickly or at all. There is a whatsapp group with a lot of the tenants discussing such issues.

Amazing view

The layout of the apartment is really awesome and thanks to the large windows I get a lot of sunshine and also a great view of London city! The apartment is really modern. I chose this apartment because of the location and I do not have any regrets. It’s also really easy for me to get to work.

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

I really like the location of the complex. I don’t dislike anything.

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

I wish that I knew it was small since my old apartment was actually bigger than this.

What is the best feature of your home:

The window – it gives me a beautiful view of the city

Central area

Really easy process when I was moving, it’s good for my baby and very practical. It was unfurnished when I moved in which I liked. The hub wasn’t working for a few weeks otherwise everything else was really good. Concierge is really useful, helpful and consistent.

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

Vicory house:
Very central and loads of shops, good transport links.
Too crowded during the week. Not too many parks

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

Lacks of parking and child friendly.
