Great!

Review Date Sep 2019

There is a community feel to Kidbrooke Village as it offers large green spaces and the residents are lovely. The flat is great, its spacious and bright with large windows that provide a good airflow, eliminate draughts and allow a lot of light in. It has been built at a high quality and the bills are of reasonable prices. The staff and maintenance team are fine as well.

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

Like – I like the rooftops because they’re pretty.
Dislike – There aren’t many supermarket for grocery shopping.

Lots of young professionals and families

I live here and absolutely love it! I must admit when we first looked around the area we were a bit apprehensive as much of the old estate was still here (empty but waiting to be demolished). It’s been so great to see how much the area has changed.
There’s a lovely atmosphere here now with lots of young professionals and families, as well as a new Sainsburys local and new doctors surgery, pharmacy etc. In terms of the properties themselves, the buildings seem to be a really high standard and we’ve not had any real problems with Berkeley. Any snags we found when we first moved in were fixed same day, and if we ever have problems now they send someone out the same day to fix things (even changed the bulbs in our spotlights for us!).

< The annual maintenance charges are quite high, but we feel it's worth it for the landscaping, cleaning, concierge and general maintenance that is always going on.

Amazing!

I love this development for a variety of reasons! First of all, the design itself is lovely; having been recently built, it’s new modern layout is very appealing. Everything around here is in perfect order and the abundance of green space is a welcoming feature. In addition, the transport links are relatively close with trains arriving fairly frequently.

The downsides of this development would be the security issues ongoing; there have been a number of vehicle break ins. Another issue is the proximity of the shops and restaurants, which are all quite far away.

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

Advantages:
Newly built
Perfect order
Transport is relatively close

Disadvantages:
Not very convenient for local restaurants and shops
Security issues; a few car break-ins

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

Service charge is high

Super nice, my apartment was brand new and affordable for London. You get a lot of bang for your buck. There’s also gym and pool and 24hr concierge, so many great services for a decent price.

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

Really quiet and green and safe area, easy to get to central London by transport, but I need a car to get to anywhere else.

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

I wish I knew about the train times, can wait up to 15 minutes for next train

Perfect for family life and good schools

I had been living in east London for 5+ years and seen my neighbourhood go from very dodgy to very professional within that time simply due to a few new developments and a refurbished DLR station. We have seen the same at Kidbrooke Village – lots of professionals commuting to the city – but it does also have a family vibe and lots of kids clubs/ dance clubs/ childrens facilities at David Lloyd etc have now opened up. We are now considering moving here as we have made friends within the Village and hear great feedback. If you are looking for bars/ social then this probably isn’t for you – whilst lots of things happening in the area it is more of a family community.

Green, quiet and family oriented

Review Date Sep 2019

The flats are spacious, and nice size for my family. We have access for a residents’ only garden, which is private and comfortable and it’s modern and built to a good standard. I can’t think of any negatives, it’s been great for me

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

It’s quiet, very green with quick access to blackheath, which has many shops and cafes that I go to locally. I would say that this area is very good for families with many parks and play areas.

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

There’s a lot of insects in this area because of the pond close by. It’s around the area and also in our house since we’re on the ground floor.

The development is amazing overall due to the clean and quit surroundings that make it very enjoyable in the summer. The park, close by is also lovely. The only downsides to this are the long distances away from local shops and transport links as well as frequent delays on the trains.

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

Advantages:
Clean and quiet
Nice park nearby

Disadvantages:
Sainsbury too far
railway is delayed and packed

Review Date Sep 2019

The development is very quiet and peaceful to live in, the neighbours are respectful and fine to live with. The property offers a generous amount of space with a high quality structure and stunning views from the balcony. The large windows mean that we get a lot of light in. There is a bit of dust that enters the flat as well. The staff are okay, about a 3/5 mostly because they don’t go the extra mile for residents.

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

Like – Very convenient as there are supermarkets close by and the station is near.
Dislike – You need to take a train into London

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

I want to know more about the types of people around here, I wasn’t expecting so many Chinese people to live around, which is great as there is a more familiar feel to it.

Great overall. My apartment is spacious modern. I’ve seen it I viewed the apartment and I knew it was right for me. It comes with an 24hr concierge and there’s a gym that residents can use that I didn’t know of!

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

South east has always been my home. Great area, well connected and can get to anywhere. There’s an Aldi opening soon which I can’t wait for, and I would say that this area is much safer than before, however I would say at the cost of gentrification.

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

I didn’t know about the gyn before I moved in, it’s a great bonus!

Comfortable

I love living here, the commute to schools and London is very easy and the green space this place has to offer makes it more environmentally friendly. Its a peaceful and family friendly area with a lot of fresh air. Im happy with my flat, its comfortable, spacious and warm. The neighbours and staff are great but I wish there were more amenities such as supermarkets and shops.
