Area not safe – don’t buy here

Overall good build, but very poor safety and security measures put in place by Bellway and managing company do not care! As soon as they get their money they won’t help you out nor would they care about your safety.

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

Unfortunately the area has degraded over the last month by a bunch of kids (now a group of gang) that are vandalising the area, smashing and breaking into properties, attacking people on the street, robbing moped. If you care about your safety don’t buy and live here

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

If I had known the how unsafe the area is I would have never bought

Very nice

Verified Resident

I love the area and it is very kids friendly and the park nearby is particularly great. It has a cafe with an amazing Argentinian restaurant called Buenos Aires. There is a gym and swimming pool near which is very convenient. I door parking is great and the coop is amazing.

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

I wish there were more shops around close to my house.

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

Lots of nice places to go for a walk and kid friendly area.

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

There was nothing i wish i had known before i moved in.

The river is cool to look at

I really like the colour scheme and layout of this are, which makes it look very homely and vibrant.

There are pubs within this area which is exceptional for its entertainment purpose and brings the community together.

Why did you choose this development?

Because of good size of apartment and facilities in hand.

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

The river is very cool to look at and there is a lack of noise within this development which is peaceful.

I really dislike the air pollution as it is very contagious.

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

No because I had lived in this area before so I already knew

Good community

Verified Resident

The style of the houses is a bit generic and lacks character. The fit is also quite poor so i don’t think i would ever look to buy my property but it does the job while i am here. There are good local recourses and the high street is good. However, the building management isn’t great there is meant to be a concierge but there isn’t one at the moment.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I wish there was air conditioning because on the summer the glazing on the south side windows means the flat is unbearable. Under floor heating would also be good.

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

I dislike the busy main road that causes a lot of pollution. However, it does have a lot of restaurants but i would say that there could be more. The area is up and coming so i am hoping more stuff will happen.

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

The use of space in the development isnt great for peoples needs and is quite segregated. There’s a mixed bunch of residents (some are families with children/pet owners/etc. WHICH DOES CAUSE CONFLICT WITHIN THE BUILDING).

The development is casual

The facilities we have in this development is very useful in terms of helping out us local residents, as well as having a coop less then a 5 minute work which is cool.

The design and layout is very unique.

I wish I would have had a bigger garden to have more outings with family and friends.

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

Good

Verified Resident

There are great transport links with the DLR being so close and there is a Co-op just downstairs which is very convenient. The area has a lot of what you need and there is a great vet nearby and the building allows animals which is also great.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I wish the rooms were bigger considering the expensive rent.

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

I like the views from the apartment and the quietness.

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

Nothing i wish i had known before moving in as i was well informed.

Verified Resident

The rubbish area often gets quite full before it is collected. Otherwise the building is quite well managed and very near to the high street which has lots of shops and restaurants. I like the design of my apartment.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

I wish my bedroom was slightly bigger and the living room was smaller.

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

I wish that the busses were more regular and transport links were a bit better.

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

That the kitchen wouldnt be properly finished in time.

Great

Verified Resident

There is an indoor car park that is massive and i like the design of the building. My apartment is beautiful and the view is great. The building management is quite bad and there were many mistakes with the finishing touches but they are slowly fixing it. Lots of convenient public transport, however, i often use my car.

If there was one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be?

There is nothing that i would change about my house.

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

Facilities not very good because the building is very slow and i wish there were more facilities. I really like the area and the view.

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

That the developer would take such a long time to finish everything.

Very very nice area, can’t fault

Verified Resident

Living here is great as we are spoilt for choice with restaurants and activities. The staff that work in the building are absolutely wonderful. Theres a massive car park, however, there isn’t visitor parking which is annoying. There were problems with the building but they were resolved and as I got it when it was a new build that was to be expected. I liked living here so much I got a second apartment!

Are there any facilities you like added, or that you have but don’t use?

The facilities here are excellent and I use the gym and swimming pool often. I wish there was somewhere we could dry clothes as we aren’t allowed to leave them on the balcony.

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

There is a lovely sense of community here which i love. Nothing about the area i can really fault.

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

No there wasnt anything i wish i had known prior to moving in.

Luxury Greenwich homes with reasonable price tag

Bagging a prime position on the river and nestled right next to Royal Greenwich, The River Gardens is an extensive new development by Bellway and London & Regional Properties, designed by the award-winning Squire & Partners. This collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments – including a handful of wheelchair accessible homes – will no doubt appeal to City and Canary Wharf workers, first-time buyers, and families looking to be a part of the picturesque community of Greenwich. The development stretches for 300 metres along the Thames and covers a 12-acre site, set within pristine landscaped gardens, with views across the City of London and Canary Wharf. The four imposing wharves – Lovell’s, Granite, Badcock’s and Pipers – make up The River Gardens, sitting proudly in a row. Buyers can expect to pay around £859 per square foot, which is over the average for SE10 of £589 – not a bad price considering its prime location and facilities on offer.

The nearest stations to the development are Cutty Sark DLR, which is less than a 20-minute walk away, and commuters can expect journey times of 9 minutes to Canary Wharf, 19 minutes to Bank and 22 minutes to Stratford. Alternatively, the nearest mainline station, Maze Hill, is approximately 10 minutes’ walk away, with services running into London Bridge and Cannon Street (around 15 minutes). There’s also the option of jumping on the Thames Clipper riverboat service at Greenwich for a more scenic journey into the City and Central London, and a number of bus routes run nearby The River Gardens. Drivers will benefit from easy motorway links to the A13 and A2. Greenwich’s popularity has been earnt for a reason – it’s home to the 183-acre Greenwich Park, the National Maritime Museum and the preserved Cutty Sark, so it’s full of cultural pitstops over lazy weekends. Greenwich Market is also a hit with locals and tourists alike, with fresh produce, organic food stuffs, arts and crafts, and antiques and curiosities. And with a strong line-up of restaurants, bistros, bars and cafés, there’s always somewhere new to sample. Canary Wharf is a short DLR ride away, with its many malls full of high-end boutiques, high street names, independent eateries and chain restaurants. Plus, Westfield Stratford City and the O2 are also world-class offerings in terms of shopping and entertainment.

Within the development itself, there are plenty of amenities for residents to take advantage of. A concierge is available to help with any daily tasks like household maintenance and receiving packages, while car owners can keep their vehicles secure in an underground parking space available at £25,000, and there’s a bike storage room for cyclists. In terms of leisure facilities, there’s a private gym, swimming pool, tennis court, and a children’s creche and play area. The interiors of the apartments are light, bright and contemporary with a clean finish. In the kitchens you’ll find Italian custom-designed soft-close units with Silestone worktops and integrated AEG appliances including fridge freezer, dishwasher and oven. The bathrooms incorporate white Roca sanitaryware, Bristan chrome brassware, built-in vanity shelving and tiling on the walls and floors with underfloor heating. There’s laminate wood flooring throughout the living areas, fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms, and a balcony for private outdoor space.

Buyers should also take a look at Greenwich Peninsula and Greenwich Millennium Village if there’s interested in The River Gardens.
