Great place

Review Date Sep 2019

In general the building is of a great quality and the apartment is very spacious. Another great feature of the apartment is that it is insulated meaning the noise from the outside construction cannot be heard inside the building.

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

This location has excellent transport links into London and the restaurants in the area are fantastic.

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

I dont believe i needed to know anything before i moved in.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home is the size and quality of the bathroom.

Thank you for your great feedback Conor!

Good Area when the cross rail start running

Review Date Apr 2020

Wish if could have more social public space in the building area, like have more green plants. If improve more cleanliness inside building and outside building area that’s gonna be perfect. Design is very good. Also if could improve clear Parking mark in the car park and cleanliness as well.

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

Very convenient, train station and Bus strain by minute, many shops And restaurants in high street. Easy to access central town.

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

Second block is social housing, when you see balcony outside, people dries clothes in the balcony, put a lot of things, using it as storeage. Looks so messy and unprofessional. I didn’t know that my flat just next to social housing. Front Window of view blocked by building, as nobody told me it’s gonna be like this when I purchased this property.

What is the best feature of your home:

N/ANaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

To be honest everything here is perfect I really like it here, I have everything I need as in shops, the station is very close by, not far from the children’s schools, the food market in the local market is very nice.

Dislike the construction noise

Like very quite, shops, station, neighbours are nice

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

The one thing that I wish I had known before I moved in would have to be the construction noise.

So I have been here now coming onto my ninth month, I would have to say that the property is lovely, the area is alright in terms of shops and food markets, however I must say that there is quite a few young people who live here smoke a lot of cannabis so some mornings I get up for work and the entire flat is stinking of marijuana because of the people just upstairs always smoke on the balcony, hopefully they will get kicked out soon but overall it is a pretty decent place to live.

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

Like convenience, supermarkets, dislike people do a lot of drugs, smoking weed.

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

The one thing I wish I had known before moving here would have to be about the people smoking weed.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home would have to be the size of the place.

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

Like the convenience, accessibility to transportation

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

I wish I had known about the lack of convenient shops there is a lot of fast food places and not many nice restaurants.

Hi Sung, Thanks for taking the time to write this great review! We hope you continue to enjoy living here.

Great building poor outside area

Review Date Sep 2019

In general the overall building provides world class facilities such as the kitchen and it is a great place to live. I have a big issue with the bins being left in the elevator and being generally very untidy. Also, when the sky people came to install my sky they were unable to do so because the building did not have the correct bits to make it work.

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

One thing i dislike about this area is that is very unsafe.

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

One thing i wish i knew before i moved in was that it would be very unsafe.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home is definitely the kitchen.

Area not safe

Review Date Sep 2019

Overall i believe that the building is excellent. The building as a whole is pf exceptional quality, it offers large spaces and the fact that it provides everything one could possibly need makes it a great place to live in.

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

The area has great transport links. What i dislike about the area is that it has a lot of rubbish everywhere and the presence of gangs can make it very unsafe to live in.

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

One thing i wish i knew before i moved in was how unsafe the area is.

What is the best feature of your home:

I believe that the apartment is fantastic as a whole.

I would have to say the property externally is really nice, but inside I would have to say it is not the best place I have lived, however the walls are nicely built so I do not get disturbed by the construction noise.

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

Convenience, trains, close to the m4, close to Heathrow, 12 min drive, 24hr buses regularly. Feels relatively safe, not many restaurants

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

The one thing I wish I had known before moving in would be the construction works is taking a while.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature would probably have to be my bathroom.

Poor hygiene levels

Review Date Sep 2019

The building has a poor hygiene level and the bin room is not kept clean. Likewise they do not keep the corridors clean which can be very problematic. Also the area lacks a green scenery which makes it unappealing to live in.

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

The location is great to access local buses and train stations. Also the area provides great local shops. One problem with the area us that it has a lot of traffic.

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

One thing i wish i knew before i moved in was that the construction would wake me up early in the morning.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home is that it is very modern.

Well in general the property is really nice and modern, the people here are nice, I really like the quality of materials used to build this new building, the area is okay to be honest it is not the best area as there is a lot of addicts around the area.

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

What I dislike about the area is that the food and the local shops is not that great, personally do not like the food here however what I do like about the area is the closeness to the train station.

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

The one thing that I wish I had known before I moved in here would be the food in the local area.

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

To be honest the best feature of my property would have to be the balcony.
