The team here are great and always thinking of new things to give to help the residents. Last autumn they launched the Lillie Pass which they call the lifestyle pass as it has leading global brands and London favourites giving offers to the residents. There’s VIP access, unique experiences and added extras from Selfridges, Berry Bros. and Rudd and ESPA, Duck and Dry, Nikki Tibbles’ Wild at Heart and The Harwood Arms.
I love my flat, location and the new Clubhouse
West Brompton tube and overground is an amazing station for connections into the rest of london – it can be a busy platform but fantastic for quick links.
Avoid the North End Road – there are markets and things there but unless you want to go to iceland or buy some cheap shoes it is a ten minute walk down to Fulham Broadway which has more shop options and a few bars and restaurants. Instead I would recommend heading east towards South Kensington (few minutes on the bus or a 20 minute walk) where there are so many things on offer from shops, bars and restaurants.
The Resident Clubhouse opened in September and is amazing! Great pool, gym and communal area. We love using it as a family and I hope when the new phases are completed in 2019 it doesnt get too crowded
There is still a lot of development work happening but it isnt an inconvenience and we love how new all the facilities are. We had thought about joining the Virgin down the road but with the pool and gym here havent felt the need.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
we were concerned about the noise from the train station. With the windows closed in winter it has not been an issue but we are concerned about the summer as a very busy station
The Lillie Square development is very pram and young children friendly with wide doors and lifts in all stage one and two buildings, making getting around the place fantastically easy, with no steps up to buildings meaning pram handling woyuld be easy. There is also a huge park being developed which would be great for running around on near the flat. One issue in the stage one buildings is waste disposal, you as a resident must take your own rubbish down to the basement which would be an incredible hassle, should I or my husband be there by ourselves with just the children. Despite this, when we spoke to the real estate agent, they have identified this issue and are looking to change it as the development is being finished. The development is a short 5 minute walk from Fulham Road and North End Road so quick trips to the shops for essentials would be thankfully, very easy. Moreover, with a Car Park which spreads over the site and an opportunity to buy your assigned space for what I understand is around the average price for most developments in London (GBP75,000) actually accessing and using the car would be very easy (and safe, as there are gates and security present in the carpark at all times).
The amenities at Lillie Square itself are up to an incredibly high standard, with a pool the children could learn to swim in and an all included breakfast in the Club House, which would definitely be useful if breakfast seemed like a chore on some mornings! One issue with the Club House is that they have every facility but a tennis court, which was surprising, however, there are courts close by at the Hurlingham Club. The concierge is supposed accessible 24 hrs a day with a directly line from the flat, so if anything was needed Im sure they could help out. All of these amenities are covered by the service charge which is around GBP7 a square foot, which is quite a lot steeper than other developments we have seen but seems to be worth while with everything thats included.
