Nice warm apartment

Verified Resident

The apartment has been well constructed. It’s really warm aswell so I never really need to turn the heating on. The design is good and it’s pretty spacious. It is quite expensive to live here but I would say it’s relatively worth it’s value.

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

The area is well connected in terms of transport. Relatively close to central London so it’s easy to get by however there aren’t much bars and restaurants nearby.

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

There isn’t anything I would have wanted to know before moving here

Very close to shops and Central london, great transport links

Need to pay separately for hot water, which I did not realise at first

Nice modern place

Verified Resident

The house has been nicely designed and isn’t exactly classic but more modern instead which I prefer. Its clean and comfortable for us and the facilities are good. There isn’t anything I particularly dislike at all.

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

The environment is really quiet, there isn’t much noise despite the fact that we’re next to quite a busy street. Very Convenient in terms of transport links especially to central London. However there aren’t much shops or super markets or supermarkets nearby and there could be more eating places as there aren’t any.

Great apartment in Zone 1 limit

Verified Resident

The development is in a great location, excellent connection to Central London (30 min walk to Bank or Piccadilly Circus), well connected by public transport. The quality of the apartments is good, as they were built in 2016. Overall I am enjoying living here. The only thing I dislike is that the balcony is in a busy intersection and tends to be noisy (ambulances, police, motorbikes..).

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

Walk to Central London

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

If buying the apartment for the view, take into account how much is being built in the area.

A lovely place to live!

Verified Resident

Overall a very nice development, lots of green space and doesn’t feel too new. The developer are still on site and generally helpful although some standards (e.g planting) have deteriorated since the development opened. The neighbors are great, and there is a lovely social feel.

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

So close to everywhere! Walking distance into town. Still some areas of building site so lots of road closures etc.

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

The awsome diverse food shops on Walworth road

A Sanctuary for the Mind and Body, Elephant Park is my Dream Home

Verified Resident

Elephant Park encompasses all the main factors I looked for in a long term investment in central London. Firstly, the price was affordable for a high specification project set amidst a generous layout of green spaces with well planned amenities for everyone, young and old. The interior space, of my 3-room flat, in particular is very well designed and comes equipped with superior quality appliances and fittings, to ensure better reliability and durability. The communal areas too enjoy a high level of maintenance and upkeep, and with the upcoming opening of the Central Shopping Street, Elephant Park will undoubtedly become a residential landmark in Central London .. Hooray!

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

The estate is large, so one need to assess the distance to the E&C Underground station and be comfortable with that..
