Nice area

Verified Resident

The view is very pleasant from the courtyard. The surrounding is very nice and the rooms are spacious so i have space to roam around.
The balcony is useful and the windows are well insulated. I like how there are two bathrooms.
The management isn’t clear on money though. Im not sure which money goes to where.

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

I had problems with loose tiles so the management responded very promptly

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

I dislike that theres no shops nearby
But i like how well insulated the rooms are

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

I wish i knew that the tube station isnt closeby.

Quiet and nice space

Verified Resident

It’s a good build and the transport links are quite good, with the nearby train station having train services that take just under half an hour to get to Waterloo. The high street isn’t too great as it’s being renovated, and therefore a lot of the shops aren’t open at the minute.

What is the best feature of your home?

The best feature of my home is the fact it overlooks the garden

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

I like being close to the canal

I don’t like how the highstreet is at the minute

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

Theres nothing I wish I’d have known beforehand as we’d researched a lot

Peaceful, tranquil and scenic

It’s a really tranquil place to live, the flight path can be loud sometimes but it’s okay, there have been a few issues with the flat due to a rushed build but all have been sorted by the management. There are shops to be opened here in a few years in the third phase of the development, however for now there isn’t much here in regards to cheap shopping.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

If there was one thing I would change about my property it would be to make it bigger.

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

I like the fact that it’s quite easy to get to central

I don’t like the highstreet

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

One thing I wish I would’ve known about the parking situation here

Great community

Verified Resident

My flat is large and spacious, i feel very safe when i’m at home and in surrounding areas. In my opinion i believe i am paying a good value for what i’m receiving.
I would summarise my flat as nice, the floor to ceiling windows are ideal as they let in a lot of light.
The development itself is quite quiet however i’ve still managed to make friends locally because i go to the pub regularly.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I wouldn’t want anything else as i believe the development is right for me.

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

I Dislike that theres train stations local to the building, however i do Like that the community is very present and active.

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

I was well informed when i moved in and received what i was expecting.

Quiet, spacious and modern

Verified Resident

It’s nice living here – the canal nearby is super nice, and it’s a great flat as it’s really spacious inside. I’m not super keen on how little transport links there are here, and the fact that there are so little shops around here.

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

They’re been quite good at responding to any issues.

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

I like the canal nearby

I don’t like that it’s not very accessible

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

There’s nothing I can think of, I feel like I knew everything before I moved in

Quiet

The area around here is pretty quiet, which is nice, the nearby construction doesn’t bother me, and the nearby bus station and the flight path is silenced out by the windows which are really effective at blocking out the noise.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I wish when I’d moved in that the flat was already furnished.

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

I like that it’s quiet around here despite the flight path

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

There’s nothing I can thing of at the minute! It’s nice here

Brentwood is a quiet area

Verified Resident

The apartment we live at is nice and spacious and i’d say its good value for money. I feel safe inside i’m new to the area so this is key for me.. However the area is kinda boring as theres nothing to do.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I wish there was an on site grocery store or even close by. A concierge would also be great.

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

Like that its a clean and quiet so we cant hear other residents
I dislike the noise pollution caused by the planes

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

Theres an airport nearby which i didn’t know about i would’ve thought twice if i knew

Quiet, convenient and reasonably priced

Verified Resident

I’ve just moved in here, and it’s been great so far. I think the design of the building is great, and I love the fact that I can afford this place on my own. The only thing I’m not so keen on is the fact that there are only limited broadband service that work in the building.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I do wish there was a cinema nearby, as the nearest is in Fulham.

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

I like that it’s can afford it on my own, and it’s so close to my work

I don’t like the fact that the building isn’t wired up for different broadbands

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

There’s nothing id wish I’d have known before moving in
