We really enjoy living here

Review Date Dec 2021

Transport links are fabulous, very close to 3x useful stations and easy to get to London Bridge and beyond. Bins need to be collected more often, but I expect that is a symptom of lockdown. No traffic noise, some train noise but that is to be expected. We really enjoy living here.

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

Transport links are fabulous, very close to 3x useful stations and easy to get to London Bridge and beyond. Bins need to be collected more often, but I expect that is a symptom of lockdown. No traffic noise, some train noise but that is to be expected. Mixed recycling is a bonus but no food waste disposal is odd. Overall, we really enjoy living here.

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

You can see your neighbours and they can see you. Get some new PJs and some big plants or suffer the consequences!

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

Yes and usually very speedily and efficiently, apart from one, which we have been waiting on almost a year.

Deptford Foundry feels like a lovely oasis. There are lovely gardens and pedestrian walkways that keep the development quiet and peaceful. The buildings are modern yet timeless, so in year’s time the development will still look and feel appropriate. Since there are multiple buildings it gives more of a campus feel than a block of flat which is a really nice way environment.

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

Deptford Foundry is perfectly located near many trendy shops and cafes in Deptford and New Cross as well as some great open spaces. Nearby to Greenwich, you can visit a more well established area with loads of amenities.

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

I wish I realised how well connected this area was, we weren’t too sure about the location but are really pleased with it.

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

They respond quite quickly to comments or concerns

Lovely development, lovely communal area, beautiful flats – looks like a lovely hotel in the corridors.

Sleek design in the flats with lovely kitchen and high spec aspects. Spacious & upmarket – would recommend.

Concierge is brilliant – management fee is expensive but you pay for what you get.

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

Super close to both Deptford and New Cross station.
Well lit area
Beautiful flats with a lovely communal outside area.

Due to the nature of the area, there can be some loud groups of people nearby.

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

How other neighbours hate any kind of noise even on a weekend

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

Yes, ClickFix came to my rescue a few times in the first year!

The design of the development is great, it is contemporary and in keeping with its railway setting. The facilities on site such as the coffee shop are excellent and we are close to large food shops. The building is very well maintained and the concierge is brilliant.

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

It is very close to new cross and Greenwich.

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

We cannot think of anything we wish we had known beforehand.

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

More cycle storage on site would be an added bonus and built in microwaves would be good

Deptford Foundry have really done something very special in here. They have built a beautiful small community. It is managed well and having a concierge on site who are very helpful is also a good plus.

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

I love living in the area, been here 8 years. Deptford nearby is packed with nice small private restaurants, cages and bars, especially around the arches near the train station. Greenwich is 15 min walk and it is such a beautiful part of London with a massive park. If you need as well to buy your groceries there are plenty of options including a large Sainsbury near new cross gate station.

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

snagging list, do your own.

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

Bicycles and motorbikes on the lane. They dont respect the dismount sign and they pass by speeding. It is need a u-chicane or anything similar to deter them and avoid any potential health hazard or accident!

The development is finished to a very high spec. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the flat mean it is very light and bright. The views from Cobalt Tower across the entire City of London and Canary Wharf are incredible. Having a concierge 6 days a week is also a massive benefit.

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

Very close to both New Cross and Deptford stations for easy transport links into London Bridge and the City. Also very close to the Thames Path and lovely for a walk/run along to the river to the Cutty Sark/Greenwich.

What is the best feature of your home:

Floor to ceiling windows throughout with incredible views over the City and Canary Wharf.

Lovely, contemporary flats

The development is very nice and aesthetically pleasing. It is contemporary but not super modern where it will be out of style in a few years which I think is great. The landscaped garden areas are well looked after and beautiful. It is also appealing that there is not a street running through the development so the flats are rather quiet from street noise. The only drawback is that it seems to be a bit of a wind tunnel because the fact that the buildings are close together and sound travels a bit from other flats.

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

The area is brilliant. So many nice independent bars, restaurants and shops. So many transport links into central London.

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

While the bathrooms are nice the toilets are awful. It is impossible not to splash when using it because there is no rim on the toilet bowl.

What is the best feature of your home:

The large balconies and contemporary design. I think the bathrooms are also lovely.

Everything 5 star spot on. Literally concierge is lovely and very helpful. Design of the flats absolutely amazing and stunning finish from kitchen to bathroom and saloon. My balcony is a biggest around this property almost 7m long which give an extra space and comfort superb.

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

So it is so quiet here and so modern at the same time. I love the area and all the shops around also choice of transport train underground buses overground so easy to move around. Missing car park or garage under the building this is big minus i think for everyone thatbis so many cars around and literally no space so sometimes take a long time to park the vehicle. I love concierge they are awesome and very helpful.

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

So i wish to know that they will be no space on the street for the car as whenni move in could park every where around and right now there is double yellow line from Lewisham council and sign so you cant park there and you cant apply for permit as is double yellow everywhere so is a bit problem now with the car not only me a lot of neighbours said the same about it.

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

Only once problem with the door but they fixed. Was a long time for them to response and come to fix it but only because covid 19 impact i believe

Hi Krzysztof,

Thank you for writing a review!

It is great to hear all the things you like about Deptford Foundry. The concierge team are excellent!

There is often parking spaces on the road next to Folkestone Gardens (by Park Cafe Honle) which might help your mission to find somewhere to park.

Best regards,
Georgia

We loved the look of the develop before the shovels even broke ground. After viewing them for the first time we knew we really wanted to own a property here. The facilities provided are excellent and we could not be more happy with our new home. Our apartment has a great feel to it and it’s lay out and design make it feel like the ‘swanky’ London flat we always wanted to own.
The community is great and since moving in we have made some great friends and thoroughly enjoy living here. Add to that the friendliness and awesomeness of the anthology staff and you can really understand why it feels like home!

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

Deptford is very much an up and coming area with lots of small businesses popping up all over the place selling all types of things from food and coffee to whatever else you wish to buy.
Transport links are excellent and you can be at London Bridge or Shoreditch With 15 minutes as well as it’s close proximity to Greenwich and everything Greenwich has to offer!

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

Perhaps a map/list of places to go and things to do prior to moving in.
Video made of how to use the controls for heating etc.

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

50/50
Some things have been repaired quickly, others have just been left and still not made good.

Hi Darrel,

Thank you for such an amazing review! We are so happy to hear you love your new Anthology home. At the heart of our approach is our desire to enhance neighbourhoods, and it delights us to see the community growing every day!

Deptford is a great place to live – there’s always something going on, whether its exploring the local restaurants, galleries and markets or just taking a stroll around the many parks and green spaces, as well as it’s proximity to the City and Greenwich.

Great idea for the ‘How to’ video, we will feedback to the team.

Best Regards
Natalie
