Blackhorse Mills is more than just a home; it’s a way of life. Somewhere you can feel totally free. To paint the walls, bring your pets, swim in the lido, chill on the roof terrace, work out in the gym, host friends in the dining rooms, stretch in the yoga studio... And a whole lot more besides. Overlooking the wilds of Walthamstow Wetlands, yet just 20 minutes to Central London on the Victoria Line from Blackhorse Road station, Blackhorse Mills has nature and city life down. Whether you’re after seclusion or connection, wildlife or a wild night, E17 is about balance and choice.

We love Blackhorse Mills!

I have lived in the area for close to five years and moved to Blackhorse Mills on a temporary basis when I needed a bigger space. It was an absolutely ideal place to live with no other development having this level of facilities (gym, pool, co-working space, tennis courts, bar, private dining rooms for free hire!!). I could not fault the development and would 100% recommend to anyone looking to rent in London. All the facilities combined with the proximity to the station can not be beaten. The staff on-site are so helpful and will respond immediately if there any issues in the flat.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

I have lived around Blackhorse Road for nearly five years now. During this time there has been significant growth in terms of the brewery mile and the increase in great restaurants. Blackhorse Mills is the perfect little sister to Walthamstow Central as its not as hectic with the Wetlands on your doorstep for that much needed escape to nature when you live in London.

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

We had an issue on the first day when our electricity went out and the team were very responsive to have this resolved asap.

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

I wish I had discovered the Deja brew cafe opposite a lot sooner as it was amazing!

Great people

Mo has been excellent on reception! A really lovely happy guy and very helpful. Everyone has been very lovely and helpful. The facilities are excellent and it has been great to see what is on offer. The building is really well designed and comfortable to spend time in.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

parking situation is not great. After moving in we got tickets despite logging the car. I understand this is a private company so not really in your control.

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

Quickly. We have had quick and helpful responses for all our queries

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

That you have to request for changes to be made like putting up pictures.

Good place to live in

Lenia David (Tenant)

Facilities are nice and well designed. I’d like to shout out to Mo, one of the front desk concierges. He is one of the concierges of the only one who provides the best costumer service. He is polite and makes one feel welcome in their own home. Mo is efficient and every time I see him in the front desk I know I will have the best outcome especially when I need parking.

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

Living here is good and convenient. Good transports links and clean area. The parking is a problem. No parking available and it is very expensive.

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

Very quickly and efficiently. Management has good communication skills and shows that tenants are priority when a problem occur.

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

Parking is an issue…too expensive and the development being in a private land does not give us tenant access to a parking permit in the area. It can be inconvenient moving the car back and forth.

A genuinely lovely place to be

Elissa B (Tenant)

Apr 2024

Blackhorse is a great place to live. Kornelia and the team provide amazing, friendly service at all times. It is a genuinely lovely place to be - it’s clean and safe + all neighbours are super friendly. A great place to live alone for the first time!

Please tell us about the good and bad aspects of living in your local area:

This is a great area for young, single professionals as there’s plenty to do with a good amount of bars, restaurants etc.

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

I haven’t raised any issues for the management to respond to

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

I wish I’d known that the parking was very limited, other than that it’s brilliant
