Great community

Verified Resident

The finishing of the flat was basic but the size is great for a flat in London. In terms of the development, it felt a little bit cheap. The parking is not good, the spaces are very limited. The management is really not good, we were not told who would be managing us and it’s a shame that they are not great.

However, the sense of community is great and there is a great community spirit. My neighbours are great- the best I’ve had in London after living here for over 20 years!

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

I would love if there was a wall or fence between the park and the development purely to increase the feeling of security in the dark.

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

What I don’t like is the poor lighting in the park at nighttime.
The transport is great and very handy to have the tube station right opposite.

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

I don’t think there’s anything that would make a huge difference to know before moving here.

Great location and community spirit

Verified Resident

The flat is a great size with loads of natural light. I love the balcony and we use it a lot ! The bike storage and car park is not great- could definitely be improved. The management in general is not very good but I haven’t had any problems so far.
There is a really great community spirit.

What is the best feature of your home?

The balcony and the communal garden is only for residents which is great

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

There are too many youths who hang around the development.
But the transportation is great and the development is helping the area as well, so hopefully things will improve.

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

There isn’t anything really that I wish I’d known.

Decent sized flat with good transport

The size of the flat is good- the double room could be bigger though. The balcony is huge and the views are great. There is a really nice, secure kids play area hidden in the centre courtyard of my building- this is amazing.

One of the bad points is the parking: there is just not enough spaces. The development is structured very nicely, I like the size.

The management is terrible! The need to put up some security cameras and actually check them.

What is the best feature of your home?

The balcony for sure- the views are amazing (for now)!

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

It’s convenient in terms of commuting- 25 mins to central London. The area is pretty quiet and very green. I don’t like having Taco Bell right by my flat. The smells travel up to the development. Also, the crime rate is not good, lots of problem hang around and smoke.

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

I wish I knew how many buildings would be built around our development. This is going to affect us all.

Great location to get to the city

Verified Resident

The kitchen and bathroom were done to a good standard. The size of the flat is great and I like that is has a balcony.

In general I like the development, the organisation is not bad. The management is ok, I haven’t had any issues with them.

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

The overall quality of the development and the flat could definitely be improved.

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

The area is becoming very busy because of all the new developments- perhaps too busy.

It’s easy to access the centre of London.

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

I knew the area before but I wish there was better bus transportation

Great flat

The flat came furnished- its to a fairly good standard. There are three rooms and they are all good sizes. There is a balcony which I love.

The development is tidy and very clean which is great. There is good bike storage downstairs. The bins are also downstairs which is a bit annoying to have to go up and down, but it’s not the worst thing!

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

Better lighting and fittings throughout would be nice

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

I like that the shops are nearby and supermarkets. The bus is also close which is great.

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

There is nothing I can think of. I didn’t know a lot about the area, but I really like it
