The property is well designed and insulated. I love the high ceilings which is a rarity in a new build. I cannot hear any of my neighbours (though they may not have moved in yet!!) and the apartments seem to be well spaced out with my own not seeming to share many party walls.

I really love the large bathroom which includes a bath and loads of storage behind the mirrors, impressive to have in a studio. The kitchen is great with WM, DW and large FF. However there are only four useable cupboards as one houses the boiler which can make fitting everything in a bit of a squeeze if you have a lot of stuff (like I do!)
The prices of the rental properties are unbeatable – you won’t find anything cheaper at this quality of finish! For a studio flat I have loads of room, visitors have been so impressed with the large space I have here.
There is a large bike store which is handy, but no concierge or parcel holding facilities. There have been a few snagging issues, with window seals being a bit wonky but property management have arranged to fix these quickly. The lifts also appear to have broken down but again has been fixed relatively quickly.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
All of the shops of central Croydon are minutes away with a fairly large Lidl only 3 minutes walk from the property. Lots of bars nearby, including the fantastic Mr Fox bar (their cocktails are great!) There is Wandle Park nearby, and IKEA and various other ‘big box’ stores are about a 25 min walk/5 mins by tram away.
There is a tram stop heading into Croydon and beyond outside the flat which is handy. However if you are on the side of the flat facing it, the rails can be quite squeaky!
Parking is available opposite the flat, it costs about £17 for overnight. Traffic noise is again quite loud if you face the road, which is a 6 lane freeway. But, you get used to it.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The road noise at weekends is quite loud all night (however with window seals fixed this should ease)
I wish I’d known the boiler cupboard was in the kitchen, so I could have planned my kitchen storage better!
What is the best feature of your home:
High ceilings, large living space, lots of storage, large modern bathroom, all white goods provided, brand new.
