Best Staff, Location and Value

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jan 2020

High end design, interior is quite stylish and good finishing. Management is top value and really great people who take your side and act on your behalf rather than against you as is the case in most properties.

 

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

The flats here are high end and stylish, and a single minute from the station. I get to Central London in under 30 minutes, to Oxford Circus in 17, Kings Cross in 12 minutes! If there is one thing we love about this property its the location. Far enough to be quiet and green (near the wetlands) and close enough to be prime location. And what we love more is the service provided by Fizzy staff whereby you always know something is asking for your rights, someone is always making sure you get things repaired that you ask for such as an appliance breaking down, and since the property is relatively brand new (2018 build!) that hardly ever happens anyway. Hotel service and we feel privileged to be one of the longest residing tenants here as we were one of the first to move in.

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

We have never had a problem last longer than a couple of days at most no matter how serious of a technical problem. Fizzy have always come through.

Good-quality flats in a great position

Review Date Oct 2020

Good flats in a great position. All essentials and Blackhorse Road tube on your doorstep, and only a 20-min walk into Walthamstow itself. Flats themselves are spacious and well-designed. Keep heat well in the winter and airy in the summer. Internet v fast and reliable!

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

Great location, close to Blackhorse Road tube, with all essential amenities a stone’s throw away.

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

How close the place is to 3 awesome local breweries!

What is the best feature of your home:

3 things: flat design (spacious and good temperature control); speedy, reliable internet; and location.

Sound and heat insulation is a game changer

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

Love the flat! Great finishes, perfectly spacious and the balcony is really sheltered and clean. Shame the baths are slightly shallow, but other than that the flat exceeded our expectations. Water pressure is great and white goods all working well. Management was really helpful with the move, very professional and friendly. The best thing I’ve found so far is the insulation, not only is the flat super warm with basically no heating, but it’s practically sound proof. Haven’t heard any neighbour noise, and with the windows closed you can barely hear anything outside, except maybe the odd plane. After having lived in MANY old flats with creaky floorboards, the peacefulness is honestly a game changer 😄 I also read reviews that you can hear dogs barking a lot, which concerned me slightly, but we’ve not experienced any of this, we’ve met some very sweet dogs in the hallway!

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

Very new to the area but we’ve loved what we’ve seen so far, loads of cool breweries and Yonder climbing centre is great! Just a minute or two from the tube so really well connected. And ikea is super close which is dangerous but brilliant.

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

Literally the only thing is the bath 😆 but it’s a minor complaint!

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

The baths are really shallow which is a shame, but other than that the flat exceeded our expectations

Converted to new builds

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

I’ve always thought new builds were a bit naff and lacked character but I am converted. The building is really modern and really well designed and we’ll kept! It’s amazingly spacious! The amenities are all well kept and smartly designed to combat common problems found in older houses such as damp and noise. They seem quite eco conscious which is a plus! The management are also really lovely and make the moving process really easy. They give you all the manuals to your flat which is super helpful and internet and heating is included!! Because everything is smart, we end up saving quite a bit of money on our utilities. The only downside is no gas cooker, I find induction cookers annoying but that’s a personal opinion. And of course the best thing about Fizzy is that my cat can live freely in it and not secretly like in our old flat! After dealing with bad, greedy and stuffy landlords, it’s so refreshing to rent from a company, where you know someone is accountable.

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

Pros: good coffee in the area and really close to the wetlands for walks. Climbing wall and yoga studio just round the corner 🙌 Generally pretty quiet on the road we live on.

Cons: wish the local co-op was just a bit bigger and wish there were better food options on deliveroo 😅

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

Parking is so expensive! Parking is basically non-existent in the area but the parking at fizzy is too expensive for us! Luckily, we work in the area and got a business permit for only £200 for the year instead of £85 a month! However even with the permit, parking is a nightmare and sometimes we will have to park several roads away which is slightly annoying.

The bathtub is also probably the most uncomfortable bath ever. It gets better as you get use to it but it’s weirdly small and shallow and will never cover you completely with water even when you are completely planked in it 😂

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

Jason our building manager is super nice and has responded to all of my annoying little questions promptly. They also deal with repairs pretty quickly.

Pros: area is great, right by the wetlands for some nature if you want it, and the flat is spacious and all we need.

Cons: parking (told we could have weekend passes but this is not allowed), on going construction we weren’t warned about pre move in

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

Wetlands are great, also has great transport links

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

More than 1, toilet, parking and construction problems

What is the best feature of your home:

The space in the flat is amazing and the balcony too is large.

Great place to live during a pandemic

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

I have been living with Fizzy for 7 months now and it has been great. I moved here right before the pandemic started. The buildings are clean, Fizzy handled the lockdown great making sure the building is clean is everyone is safe. The flats are large.

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

The area, Walthamstow is starting tohave more and more development, its very close to a few parks and there are some great pubs and beer gardens around. If you are into climbing, the building is super close to Yonder and a few stops away from Castle and Stronghold

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

The coffee place across theb treet is great! Highly recommend.

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

I would like to have a flat on a higher floor to have more light. Specifically about the flat, the bath tub is a bit too shallow.

Everything we need for our little family!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Oct 2020

We have just recently moved into the Fizzy Walthamstow building and we love it! Finding somewhere suitable for our daughter was the most challenging part of moving but this clean, light, bright and spacious flat offers everything we need for our little family. With all appliances and wifi included the move in was simple and stress free. Pets are also allowed which is a huge perk – thinking of getting a cat to complete our family.

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

The area is great – it feels quiet and secluded with local shops and cafes just a stones throw away. The local primary schools are fantastic which is a huge bonus. A short walk to Blackhorse Road station on the Victoria line which can get you essentially anywhere you need to be.

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

Shopping can be delivered straight to your door which takes a huge amount of stress away from food shopping.

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

Maintenance issues have not been solved however during the current covid climate we understand that this could be challenging.

Living at fizzy

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2020

The fizzy development is designed for ease and convenience. You have everything you need (washer/dryer, dishwasher), enough space inclusing balcony and the gardens are lovely to have a quick coffee break in. The management of the building is usually really quick and helpful.

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

The area is great and is constantly developing which is great. There is a lot to do in the area – you have nature (the wetlands, the canal) and there are new cafes/places to eat/breweries opening up. Tesco and co-op are close for food shopping and then there are more options by st James street which is quite close. Being on the Victoria line is incredible – it’s so easy to get anywhere!

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

Flies during summer months due to the wetlands near by

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

management are quick to repair/respond to any issues typically via email.

Fizzy is Fantastic

Review Date Aug 2020

The development is wonderful, so safe and secure. In a great locations a few minutes walk from the tube and great coffee and places to drink! Being in the Victoria line is amazing as it connects you to central London you still feel in the hub but get the peacefulness of Walthamstow. Flats are so clean and modern- no issues so far!

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

Love how quiet the area is we can sit on our balcony and have no noise disturbance on the weekends. The area is so up and coming and all the little lovely breweries popping up such as Truman’s, signature, exhale are really making the area lovely with things to do. Obviously the wetlands is lovely!

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

Parking around the area is non existent for guests.

What is the best feature of your home:

The location and the space you get in the two bed flat!

Huge bright flat with nice appliances where everything just works. Pet friendly, peaceful, so far has been easy to get things fixed and good communication with property management who are much nicer than any I’ve dealt with in previous places I’ve lived.

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

Amazing transport, great local shops, cafes etc, lovely community vibe, right near beautiful nature reserve

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

If you get a pet there is a slight increase in rent

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

It’s pretty good value for money but it would have been kind to give rent reductions during COVID as a lot of people’s circumstances have changed beyond their control

Modern, comfortable apartments in a friendly, vibrant corner of East London

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Jul 2020

The development is modern, comfortable, clean and quiet. Our apartment’s space has been excellently utilised. The bathroom is nice and big and there are two utility cupboards with space for the washing machine that was included with the flat. There’s a dishwasher for when we’re feeling lazy and the fridge/freezer is nice and big so that there’s plenty of storage space, more than enough for two people living in a one-bed flat. The communal garden area is really pleasant. The insulation in the block is fantastic, both sound-wise and heat-wise. You rarely hear anything at all from the other apartments in the block, or from outside if you close the windows. Easily the best place I’ve lived during my six years in London. And the house management are always on hand to help out, whether it was getting us a new mattress or answering questions about other things. They also let you have pets!

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

There’s nothing I dislike about Walthamstow. By Blackhorse Road we are right next to the River Lea, Tottenham Lock, Walthamstow Wetlands and a comfortable walk to Walthamstow Marshes and Tottenham Marshes. It’s rare to find so much natural beauty in London and yet have excellent access to the central areas. Walthamstow very much has its own identity as opposed to being swallowed up into the capital like so many other areas. It’s very family oriented, yet has plenty to do for young people. The pubs are excellent. Close by the Fizzy development is a Co-op and Lidl is a twenty-minute walk away, with plenty more in the town centre should they not suffice (the town centre is roughly a 25-minute walk). William Morris Gallery is also close by and has some beautiful gardens to enjoy and almost everyone I’ve met around here, both in the development and outside, are incredibly friendly.

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

This was more our fault than anything else, but we’d probably warn somebody who asked about the no smoking rule. Obviously people expect that inside, but I’ve never come across a place that doesn’t let you do so on a balcony or in a communal garden area. We also heard a strange rumour that before we moved in dogs were banned from the communal garden area because somebody was moaning about noise. I think that’s a shame and can’t imagine ever being annoyed by a dog. I suppose I worry slightly (and it is only slightly) that one person raising their voice unreasonably might affect other tenants in the block. This is a concern for us because we definitely want to get a dog at some point.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature is definitely the living space because it’s open and comfortable and very spacious while still managing to include all necessary amenities.

Wow thanks for the kind words Sebastian, we’re so pleased to hear that Fizzy Walthamstow is the best place you’ve lived in London! Thanks for your feedback on the communal gardens – unfortunately, a small number of owners were not being responsible for their dogs and therefore, for health and safety reasons and to improve the quality of shared spaces for all our residents to enjoy, we had to make the painful decision to make the garden a pet-free area. Fizzy is most definitely a pet-friendly landlord, we adore all our furry residents, and we will continue to review this situation. We have identified a handful of pet-friendly parks within a 10 minute walk of our building we recommend to all dog owners. Thanks – and we also look forward to you getting a dog!
