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

A slick, modern development in the heart of Queens Park

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.

Made up of three separate buildings, the main entrance foyer in Alderside (staffed by 24-hour concierge) is definitely the jewel in the crown, with impressive modern design and a cosy communal seating area. The other two smaller foyers in Cedarside and Birchside are clean and functional, yet lacking in ambience and style.

We are lucky to have a space in the underground car park, which is safe and secure (it also houses a bike shed), and comes with a spacious storage unit.

The Queens Park area is perfect for families and young professionals, with a great sense of community ” as is evident at the weekly Sunday farmers market. The park is only a few minutes walk from the development, and offers a lot for its size, with tennis courts, gym stations, playgrounds, a mini golf course and a cafe.

Another obvious bonus is Queens Park underground, with the Bakerloo line station directly opposite the development. You can be at Paddington in seven minutes and Oxford Circus in fifteen.

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

 Trains are a little noisier than we thought, but this is quickly something you get used to. There is an active Queens Park Place Facebook group that we only heard about recently.

I have always been a fan of the developer. They have always been design conscious and other schemes I have seen of theirs have aged well and stood out from the crowd. Queens Park Place is no exemption. Ian Simpson the British architect has delivered an attractive building with brick, wood and zinc as the main exterior components. The main entrance to the building is very impressive but one of the biggest let downs is the quality of the common parts in the other parts of the building. Clearly all the money was spent on the main concierge and none left for the other entrances. The gardens are a bit of a missed opportunity. They are good spaces but badly planted and don’t make the most of the space. The building is really well managed by JAR residential and the concierge team are excellent as they should be for GBP4.50sqft service charge. Dependent on which side of the building you are on the train noise can be noticeable, and definitely something to consider if you are a light sleeper. Queens Park is a lovely place to live, the transport, high street, park and local community are fantastic, the farmers market is a treat every Sunday there are plenty of good places to get a drink or a bite. The wider area is about to embark on a huge regeneration, something worth considering if you are renting as the immediate area (Falcon Pub and car park opposite Mand) are about to be developed. However good news if you are buying as the local area is going to see a huge amount of investment in the next 5 years.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in: The trains are noisier than we thought and specification could have been higher for the price

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
