Londonewcastle reviews

“QPP is a slick modern development that stands out as a particularly unique place to live in the heart of Queens Park. All apartments are contemporary in design and finished to high spec throughout despite a few frustrating teething problems to begin with. The flats are flooded with natural light thanks to generous-size windows and benefit from spacious balconies or roof terraces that look onto the communal private gardens which are well maintained by the gardening team.” – Bella Dickie, verified resident of Queen’s Park Place

Lived in QPP for nearly 3 years and we love it

I have lived in North West London for over 10 years. We were considering buying a house in the local area but we couldn’t get what we wanted for the money. QPP offered large, well laid out, 2 and 3 bed apartments which are very difficult to find in normal converted period housing stock. I have come across Londonewcastle before as their buildings are usually design led and eye catching. Although the delivery was slightly delayed and there were some initial teething problems, we absolutely love here. We are on the 6th floors and the views are phenomenal. The spec in the apartment is good and has aged well. We have Miele appliances, underfloor heating, air conditioning throughout. Be aware, these apartments can get hot in the summer as they are so well insulated. The Concierge is fantastic, Zoltan & Sean in particular go above and beyond to make our lives as easy as possible.

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

Queens Park is like a village with access to Oxford Circus in 20mins. It is one of the best connected locations in London with a real village and community feel. The park is such an asset particularly when you have a young family.

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

Phase 2 of QPP was due to start a while ago and we were looking forward to the shops and improvement to the local aesthetic it will provide but I understand it is still 2/3years away. Some of the mechanics in the building are in need of replacement just three years after occupancy. It appears this is potentially due to poor maintenance and original installation. This may have an impact on the service charge in the next few years, but is being well managed by the resident management group.

A satisfied customer!

I was looking for a second home in London and came across Queens Park Place and bought a property off-plan. I’ve been very pleased with everything about it since. The fact it is opposite the tube station and 10-15 minutes to the west-end is a big attraction as is the M&S store beneath. I also enjoy the suburban village atmosphere of Queens Park. The apartments are well designed and although limited in size, because they are well planned the space is adequate. The 24 hour concierge is a great boon and comes at a reasonable cost compared to other such buildings. The staff are particularly helpful and courteous. The hallmark of Londonewcastle is definitely on this building and I enjoy staying in the property and frequently speak positively about it to friends and acquanitances.

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

I like the village atmosphere but wish there were more and better shopping facilities. I’d welcome a better gym in the vicinity especially one with a swimming pool.

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

While I live on the 1st floor and can conveniently use the stairs, I believe there are too few lifts. We have one servicing about 28 apartments in Alderside apartments and sometimes it takes too long to get a lift.

Modern living in Queens Park

We bought our flat at QPP in 2015 and, despite quite a few initial snagging issues, it has become a fantastic place to live. It is extremely convenient; the park is a five-minute walk away, the tube just over the road, and M&S is literally in the building. The flats are designed well, with spacious balconies and large windows throughout. My only gripe is that I feel that less attention was paid to the communal parts in Birchside and Cedarside, compared to the very smart and impressive entrance foyer in Alderside. The building is well managed well by Zoltan, Sean and the rest of the concierge team.

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

Like: Sunday farmers market, local restaurants, schools and nurseries

Good but could be better

I love living here. I’d love it more if there were more attention to small details – a flickering light on the landing, a lift panel that doesn’t get fixed, a chip in the paint that’s been there since I moved in – small things that could be easily attended to if the building management walked around the public areas daily. The most egregious problem is the lack of concierge coverage in the middle of the day. At the times when most delivieries are expected and most visitors arrive, the concierges are on their break and there is no relief concierge or staggered shifts as in every other building with porterage or concierge service in which I’ve lived. Between 12 and 2, most days, there is nobody is at the desk and often nobody can be reached by phone. One of the reasons I bought my apartment was the promise of 24 hour concierge service and this is not available.

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

This is a mixed neighbourhood with all kinds of people and amenities. Tranport links are spectacularly good with tube and bus service outside the door.

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

I wish I’d known that the walls are too thin to sustain a bookcase. And I would not have bought had I known that the concierge service, which is excellent when there, was not 24 hour.
