Easy commute to uni, green, spacious and friendly area to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Jul 2019

Overall impression of the apartment was very good. The furnishings were as expected and design layout also as expected and used friendly and well thought out. Surfaces good quality and overall aesthetic of the flat great.

In terms of maintenance the maintenance has improved over the last years and development management seems far more efficient and responsive. In terms of managing rubbish there are internal chutes which are very useful and hygienic.the outer area is also well maintained and kept clean and well gardened.

Location quiet and family friendly with a park close by which is great for children and to relax in.

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

Really enjoy living in this area. The outer appearance and layout of the buildings is really nice and spacious with lots of benches and well maintained trees.

The location is great and close to uni and tube access easy to walk to. The area is quiet, calm and peaceful but there is some noise from the main road for flats located more on the edges of the development.

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

Nothing out of the ordinary and apartment layout as expected. However value for money has decreased over time.

Nice communal facilities

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The building feels like its really good quality and the appliances were also ready built in. There haven’t been any snags in any of the appliances which is rare as we are the first tenants of the building. Me and my two flatmates only moved in 7 or 8 months ago. I use the spa quite often however the gym is a little on the basic side but it is quiet. The open plan kitchen is my favourite place to hang out and cook. The apartment also has two balconies with great views of the park and 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are ensuites. The agents we used are called Foxton. The application process was conducted mostly online and felt very easy.
Visitor passes can be brought from the concierge who are open nearly 24 hours. The garden is always kept nicely.
Regular updates are sent via email which is good to keep in touch with other residents.

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

It feels very modern however it feels quite far out of London. There’s a lack of atmosphere here. The Befort pub is near by, however, no bars. Tesco is okay but I wish there were more premium supermarkets around

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

We were lead to believe we were able to get parking spaces although they only few months were we actually told of them.

Nice apartments but no community or atmosphere

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2018

The actual apartments are nice. Modern and well designed and comfortable . Unfortunately the whole site is disappointing. It lacks community and personality and atmosphere. Perhaps in 10 years it will be better. The problem is St George only care about building new flats and it’s been this way for years. There is constant construction and no support infrastructure i.e better roads, buses, a closer post office, bars and cafes etc. The parking is also chaotic. The rules are constantly changed so people are often getting £100 fines and there’s lots of aggression. There is a free gym and spa on site which is great but there are not enough lockers or showers to support more and more people. Security and customer service are quite poor.. There are noise problems late at night and gangs occasionally dealing drugs in the ‘park’ which nothing is done about. There is also no admin desk for things like deliveries. Still, it is mostly a secure place to live and seems to have a lot of middle class families from other countries.

Review Date Jul 2019

I’m not satisfied with the area I live in. The communal areas have dog poo which smells and the area around the building is dirty, filled with litter. Theres a lot of traffic pollution, lots of noise from cars. The rent is too high for a house with cracks on the wall that the management refuse to fix however I do love my house and I feel comfortable in it.. The communal areas are safe but outside areas aren’t, I don’t feel comfortable allowing my children to play outside the gates.

Like – Family friendly environment
Dislike – Dirty.

Great area

I moved to Beaufort park only 2 months ago. It has everything you need within walking distance. A tesco, Sainsbury’s, a Chinese, Italian, pub, dry cleaners, swimming pool, gym, spa and underground all within a 10 minute walk. The estate management is open 24 hours and are very helpful when needed. It’s a nice safe area and not too busy. Everyone is friendly and feels very safe to go jogging at night. It’s a little bit pricier then apartments in surrounding areas but overall I would recommend.

Overcrowded development

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

My building is well kept and looked after and the view is beautiful of the park in front of us. At times it may get quite rowdy in the park with people playing ball games and sometimes damaging flower pots and things like that. Quite a few people come to smoke recreationally which can be a nuisance as the smell enters the flat. We were on holiday one time and there had been vandalism of some sorts, graffiti, and we were emailed by the management saying that we all had to pay a fee to contribute to cleaning it which I found quite bizarre, especially when it wasn’t any of the people living here!

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

I like that it’s close to the tube station but there are too many people sometimes and it gets noisy.

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

I wish I was shown around a bit and for example shown where the bins were located. I also wish I knew that they were going to be building 2 more buildings one of which is a high-rise and will ruin the scenery and sunlight of the park and it being crowded.

Purposeful design

Review Date Jul 2019

Building management can be quite sluggish to respond to a lot of things that happen within the area. The design is purposeful and the apartment is wonderfully designed where the space is used well in the layout. The view that I have gives me the best sunset out of the development which I absolutely love.

Security is an issue.

The apartment is really nice, as it is newly build. It was not furnished however we got a washing machine, refridgerator, micro-oven and oven. There hasn’t been any issues with the flat in terms of electrics or build. There is a gym, spa, swimming pool and jacuzzi all on the development. In my apartment we have ceiling to floor windows which is really nice and has a wonderful view,
We have an extra garden for the people that have a balcony inside which I think was a nice touch.

Nice communal facilities, peaceful area

I feel like it’s good value for money and the spa that I use at least once or twice a week is beautiful. Spa and gym aren’t in the apartment building but are in the area. We have got a parking spot but I know not all the apartment have a parking spot, which our previous agent whom we were meant to rent from didn’t let us know until after the deposit was paid. The house feels spacious and there is a sauna installed in the house, which the previous place also had. The house is build well and feels secure.

Review of beaufort park

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

My landlord is not in charge of everything but instead the offices are, so rules can be very inconsistent from people to people. Some people are allowed pets and some aren’t for example.
Underground parking looks like a plus but they don’t tell you that you won’t get a spot until after you have already moved in.
It’s overcrowded and the building repairs don’t get fixed until months later.
Noisy at times as well and the facilities such as the gym extra aren’t maintained well.
Transport links and the short distance to shops are good though.

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

Like transport and shops, dislike the parking and noise

Clean environment

I like the design, the modern feel is very nice.

Simple but modern design, almost cubic, even the trees.

I make use of the gym and spa, which is a nice feature.

There are a lack of restaurants and transportation nearby, is very busy and parking is a big issue.

I get a sense that the development is going too far, as there are not enough green spaces. There is a park but it closes at night. There are only 2 GPs in the area which is a pain especially with the population increases.

The infrastructure can’t quite contain the population boom that is happening, especially with only 1 cafe nearby. only 1 underground station as well which creates a lot of congestion in the area.

More cons than pros

Frustrations with little things like not being allowed to dry laundry on balcony, building with marijuana smells, bins left in wrong place. Car gets damaged in the underground parking but no CCTV.

Beautiful area as it doesn’t feel like London and our visitors are impressed.

Access to spa is great, park is really nice and well maintained.

More cons than pros.

Parking issues are big, but we’re lucky with underground parking.

Nice modern flat

I really like how modern my flat is, despite not being too spacious. The design is good and the facilities too. The view as well is really beautiful as I can see the internal garden.
The shared facilities as the gym and the spa are also very good and well maintained. We also got an underground parking space which is really good, as if not it is very complicated to find parking around the area.
The only thing I would say could be improved of the flats is if we had AC.

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

I like that the area is good for driving, as we are right next to the motorway. It feels quite safe around here as well.
The only issue is there aren’t many things to do. There are only a few restaurants and stores, so I think that could be improved. Furthermore, there is just one nursery, so I would say the area could be a bit more family friendly.

Poor management

I like that my flat is modern and warm. I think the size is adequate. The neighbours are nice too. However, I think having so many flats makes the building too congested.
I have also had some maintenance issues which have not been solved. My landlord is quite lazy in those matters.
We also have shared facilities in the development which are alright, but their maintenance could be improved with better and more regular cleaning.
I would say the main issue is parking. There are too many flats for the number of spaces available.

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

I like that it is close to the tube.
The area could be better, though. There are not enough shops around and it could be safer. I also wish there were more restaurants and activities to do around here, as if not you always have to travel. We have a couple of parks but it would be good if there were more private ones.

There are definitely room for improvement in terms of space and layout. I like that the city is close by and a lot fun things have been popping up in the area. When they finish the other side it will be even more lively.
Roads are becoming a bit crowded. The beaufort pub is the only pub around but it’s comfortable and accessible.
This whole area used to be a airbase, so I really like the history of the area,
It feels a lot like home and I have convinced many of my friends recently to move in.

Honest review

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

The Beaufort Park is generally nicely designed with loads of plants everywhere and the small green square in the middle but it’s far from great.
The development is already overpopulated and there are still a few buildings under constructions and more coming soon. This has caused many issues in the development. There are no adequate parking spaces. Our visitors and delivery drivers struggle to find spaces to park. The significant increase in noise and pollution over the years has decreased our quality of lives. The little green square is definitely too small for this size of a development with so many residents, especially that there are no other places for teenagers or kids to play. Kids can’t play ball games anywhere in the whole development. The gym and spa are overcrowded and some residents are not allowed access to them (e.g. residents who bought their homes through shared ownership program, even if they bought 100% of shares). There are issues with antisocial behaviour and management is struggling to cope with all the issues. The roads outside the development are jammed during rush hours.

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

There are many stores like Sainsbury Local and Tesco Express very close by and bigger supermarkets like Morrison’s and Asda 20min walk away. There are also other shops, including pharmacy and restaurants (Chinese restaurant, Costa, etc.). More shops and restaurants are popping up in the area year by year. The Brent Cross Shopping Centre is 10 min away by bus. However, the local schools and GPs are struggling to cope with the increasing number of residents coming to the area. It’s difficult to get a space at school, nursery and GP. The area is quite green with two bigger parks very close by (Montrose Park and Sunny Hill Park). There is a Colindale tube station 5 min away from the Beaufort Park development and quite a few buses (186, 125, 303, 204). However, the road infrastructure is not adequate for the recent huge increase in numbers of cars driven by residents in the area.

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

I wish I knew that the developer would be allowed to change the planning applications to build taller buildings and therefore causing decrease in the value of properties that were sold before.

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

There were delays with response and building management is struggling or unable to resolve some of the issues.

Good location

I like my flat design. However the storage space is not the best. We are moving to a bigger property soon, but I like living here.
The facilities are good and well maintained. Parking as well is good for us but not the best for guests.
The building management could be better though, as we had problems with a lift and it took one month to get fixed.

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

I like the area. It feels quite safe. Transport is really good. However, as the number of buildings keeps increasing they should really update this for the number of people.

Good but not perfect

It’s dark and I would like more light.
There is no sun coming into the building so I have to pay more for electricity.
Price is a bit expensive but the accommodation is really good.
The flat is well designed and has nice rooms.

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

One way traffic
Noise
Two way to make it easier for cars to pass

Terrible place to live in

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

New developments are eye sore. With the increasing service charge, the property will be worth nothing. Not a great investment for resale. The service provided by the management team is very poor and substandard. The neighbourhood doesn’t care about the facilities and management which in turn is charged back to the owners. A terrible place to live in. I don’t recommend anyone buying a property in the area. Our property is now worth below the price when we bought it because of poor management and increasing cost of service charge.

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

There is no control for increasing the annual service charge. The service provided is poor and unsatisfactory. People park everywhere. No one is paying parking tickets. No sense of community.

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

The price and increasing cost of service charges. There is no limit. They can increase as much as they wish.

What is the best feature of your home:

Balcony, and quality of fixtures which we paid. The bathroom and communal garden.

Well maintained building and niceilings indoor facilities

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The building is well looked after. I live in a studio, it is spacious as a spacious studio could be. It can be a bit more brighter inside but it generally feels very comfortable. Because of the height of the building the sunlight gets blocked. In the complex there are a gym and a swimmingpool which are free to use. There is a dedicated indoor parking but you have to pay to use it.

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

I like that it is relatively quick to get to town, if you need to. There are quite few shops and day restaurants around as well. Bang bang is my favourite food hall.

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

Because of the builders, the main road is turned and this caused increased traffic sometimes

The development is amazing but a bit crowded. It’s becoming more and more crowded and congested everyday. I love the big sense of community and unity here, people are really friendly and helpful.

Overall I really like the development and it is very modern and there is a great sense of community and I really enjoy living here. I think the bbq concert in the park is a great idea and good way to bring people together. Apartment was as expected. However the gym is slightly too small and I wasnt expecting to have to pay for parking and the area gets quite congested sometimes.

The area is great for my family, it is big and convenient and I love that there is a good sense of community. The downfall is that this development hasn’t got enough communal areas, parks and playgrounds and I find that unacceptable. The parking is tricky and it can get really busy at peak times.

Great quality apartment

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

Having lived here for about 10 years the building quality is very good. There were only small little flaws when I first bought it which was relatively easy to fix. Has been well designed and is pretty spacious. However the windows are wooden from roof to floor which even though are nice to look at, can easily break.

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

The apartment is relatively close to tube as its within walking distance. Plenty of shops, restaurants and a pub closeby so great local amenities. The area is also pretty quiet which is nice however parking is very limited.

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

The development is very clean. Nice greenery, with a lot of trees and flowers outside which I like a lot. I like the insolation in my flat, I don’t need to turn on the heating in the winter because it remains warm inside . It is a practical space although the single room is quite small. I don’t have a balcony too which is inconvenient.

I love how there are plenty of facilities around, a spa, a shop, coffee shops and schools are within close proximity. We can go to the supermarket which is very close. The area can be unclean and unsafe. Theres lots of litter on the floor. Theres some gang activity in the area and even drug abuse which makes the area dangerous!

Concierge doesn’t accept deliveries at the desk and the letting agent assured me they did so that is a problem that we miss delivery, in 6 months of living here I’ve only ever seen 1 incident so the crime rate is low, I like the area itself just wish their were more shops and restaurants things like that, parking isn’t the best but I use the local enterprise rental so that’s good too that it is so close.

Nice area but unsafe in the case of a fire!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The flats are very small but are nicely designed. The only thing I dislike really is the fact it’s not very spacious. The security in the building is also quite good. However the quality of the building is poor as the walls are thin so you can hear everything. Also a major problem is that in the case of a fire there would be no way to get out; there isn’t a safe fire escape route at all which is worrying.

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

Nice area to live and is regularly Clean and well maintained. However there are sometimes mice running around which isn’t so nice. Also the local park is closed in the holidays which is not so good for the kids. Well connected in terms of transport with Colindale station being nearby.

Nice development but needs another 5 years

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The development is very up and coming with a good standard of facilities offered. There is a lot of building works and in my opinion being over developed.

The development needs a good five years to crack down on these issues of congestion and making it a happy place with more events

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

Good facilities like the spa and the gym, however these are very busy and needs more space.

Absolutely no parking which is a big let down. Very congested and too much volume. Its a good community

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

There is no water bill which is amazing. We were delighted to find out it is included in the service charge

Super happy with the apt, we share a two bedroom. The only problem is the water timer. Because we all work hospitality and are home weird hours it is hard to get the hot water when we need it and if we had it on all the time it is more expensive, it’s just something we need to discuss but it’s the only issue.
The washing machine having its own cupboard and not being in the kitchen is a great feature.

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

Quiet safe neighbourhood, I work as a bartender and often come home at 4am and I do not feel unsafe walking here at all.
Spa included in price isn’t awesome I can go anytime and it is not at an extra cost to me.
Need More shops only Tesco local need at least one more for some variety.

Service charges are extortionate and the area is ridiculously claustrophobic, its like a city in a city and its very overpriced for what it is. The upside is that there are shops locally, the transport links are great and you can get into London central in 20 minutes. There’s a park which is nice to visit, there is a massive mix of people around here but generally everyone is a nice person.

Safe, clean mid-to-upmarket development with lackadaisical management

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2020

Pros:
Safe and clean at all times, day or night
In-development minimarket, dry cleaner, two restaurants, a Japanese food market, and office centre.
Gym/pool/spa for residents.
People here are, by and large, pleasant, polite, and neighbourly.
Staff are always unfailingly courteous and helpful.
Development is dog-friendly.

Cons:
Management team are slow to respond to constant antisocial behaviour – drugs being consumed, bike stores being broken into, etc.

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

Recent development less than 10-minute walk from Colindale Tube station (Northern line) and right behind the police station. Area is lively but safe, plenty of pets and kids too, withing 15-minute walk of three supermarkets.

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

The ridiculous amount of drugs consumed in the development!
While not dangerous, it is illegal and inconsiderate of children.

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

Just the rent. Flat is excellent, landlord is nice. Rent isn’t even expensive for the area, it’s just a lot when viewed objectively.

Not the luxury development it makes out it is.

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2020

Design of the buildings looks good, but corners are cut in the fittings of flats and parking is horribly managed by Napier Parking and the Managing Agents can be very awkward to deal with. They work there, but we live there and it is not really appreciated. We got out as soon as we could.

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

There are 100’s if not 1000’s of flats going up in Colindale due to regeneration but consequently the local services cannot cope including the tube station, doctors, roads etc. Colindale is conveniently located for the Tube and Brent Cross.

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

How poorly managed the car parking system is; from the agents to Napier parking.

What is the best feature of your home:

The view across the RAF Museum and the size of windows used.

Still great

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

Facilities are great. Especially the gym. I have lived in the development for nearly 2 years now and have moved from one building to another. I still love the development however a point to mention is the lack of visitor parking options. This can be very tricky at times.

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

Theres a great selection of shops in colindale to meet all basic needs

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

I dont have any unfortunately. Everything is pretty self explanatory.

Great but small and expensive.

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Apr 2020

Have lived here for 4 years now and do like using the development. Service charge can be high considering how many people live ont he devleopment. Access to gym/classes,swimming pool and sauna is great. Devleopment is kept tidy and clean. Parking is very difficult to get if you don’t have a right to park space.

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

Very convienant in terms of shops in Beaufort park. Property price and size of property is high and small for a zone 4 location.

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

Check if any neighbours are living near the flat you are looking at. This can affect your day to day living dramtically.

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

Never really had any serious issue with the managment company. Have always dealt with queries promptly and adequately.

Good facilities with very good property management and security on site. There could be potential problems within the Colindale area in the next few years due to mass building to provide homes for people. With the current facilities around i do not believe these can hold a rapid increase of population.

Great properties, average area

Beaufort park is a great area with beautiful properties. Everything was built this century and has great infrastructure with good accessibility with the northern line. Colindale however lacks in restaurants and generally everything so you’ll have to travel elsewhere. Beaufort park itself has a well maintained park and a decent gym.

I like that it is new. It’s around 10 years old.

Small for the price

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

The price for the size is quite expensive. The bills can also get quite expensive. The service of the conceirge is really good and honestly the main reason I am still in the apartment as I feel like it’s safe,

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

This estate is okay, however I don’t think Colindale is quite as safe. heavy on traffic too. There are only 2 buses on the main road so it doesn’t take you many places. The colindale station is just 10 minutes away and the trains aren’t always so frequent and takes nearly an hour to get into the center of london.

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

The bigger supermarket is 20 or 30 mins walk away .

I don’t think my apartment is that big in comparison to the ones in the area. The living space and the kitchen is able to be split as well as keeping it open plan which I like as I have control of the space. The pool is great and the water is always the perfect temperature.

Friendly and convenient but busy and small gym

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

There is a generation divide between buildings and the newer building quality. This means there is an aesthetic mismatch and some friction in the development. The furnishings were as expected as I visited and the quality in comparison to older flats is far better. For example the worktops and balcony space are much better.

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

Convenient as the tube station is close and there are shops,restaurants and gym on your doorstep. This is great and the facilities and the exterieur of the development are very clean.
Not much of a commu ity spirit a lot of development and noise and polic station means sirens

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

Visit and spend afternoon here if possible to see the atmosphere and whether it would be suited to you .It is friendly but very busy. The Gym standards were not as expected as the changing rooms are too small for the volume of people in the development. The parking is expensive and friends visiting have to pay unfortunately.

Great value studio

The studio I live in has been well designed so that it is quite spacious considering it’s a studio. The design layout was taken from a hotel so it is pretty nice. Comfortable to live in and great value for money.

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

The location is great in terms of transport. However recently because there have been lots of developments being built and more residents, it would be more ideal if there were more trains from Edgware because they’re always packed in the mornings! Shopping availability is decent however there could be more outlets closer by even though Brent Cross is relatively near to here. It would also be better if dogs could go into the local park but they’re not allowed!

Bright apartment but limited parking

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

There isn’t any air con which isn’t very pleasant especially in the summer time. Love the fact that I have a balcony. Bright apartment as plenty of light comes through the windows. Also has been well built.

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

Plenty of amenities in the area. Relatively close the tube station Colindale. Moderately safe and mostly clean.

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

I wish I had known that parking is limited so even though I have a parking space, my friends/family have to pay for a parking space each time they visit

Good

It seems a bit small for me, but inside the plan is, modern. When moved in all kitchen and bathrooms were brand new. It is not pet friendly. Smoking inside the flats is allowed. Tube is local, so transport links are good

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

It’s not overcrowded, it has lots of modern buildings. However not much area. Lots of ethnicity , I like.

Modern flat, uprising crime.

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2019

My bedroom is my favourite room, it is very modern inside my flat. It came nearly finished. The management is very helpful in terms of fixing issues within the flat. There is a 24/7 security for the building which is good but only one concierge office for the entire complex.

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

I like that it is like a community, quite small and chilled with familiar faces. There is a lot of crime in the connecting areas due to some antisocial behaviour.

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

The history of the area. There are a lot of gang fights and explosions.

Friendly area

In the development itself, some places are maintained really well compared to others! I think the blocks near tesco aren’t maintained as well as the ones closer to the park. Parking is a bit difficult as-well, there’s only 1 parking spot per person which is really difficult.

The people are really friendly around here, but there’s nothing dislike.

It’s not very clean inside the building. It needs more cleaning, everywhere. A big problem I have is that it gets quite hot inside my flat. There is no air conditioning! And this doesn’t help because when I open the window the trains outside make horrible noise, so does the construction.

It’s in the middle of everything and it’s close to everything, a walking distance from sunny field and my daughters school.

When I moved in it was better than I expected and the environment is quiet and friendly, the neighbours are approachable and kind. The commute is doable and easy however there is more traffic in the central area than I would have liked. The facilities are good but overall value for money isn’t too great for example some restaurants are nice but slightly expensive.

Convenient for transport getting into central london and quite green and airy with various plants and well maintained trees and bushes. Lots of good local restaurants and social pub. Great family feel and friendly atmosphere especially as more developments are being built close by.

Crime rate low and safe and family friendly area. The whole aartment was as expected and there were no issues with developers. The fscilities are good however congestion is an issue and also the fact some facilities such as spa are not available to all of beaufort is dissapointing.

The park is great and close by and there are good transport li ks and bus stops close by. The area is very safe and has improved in terms of behaviour and crime in comparison to before. However oarking is an issue and there are less parking spaces than before.
