Amazing- Erin Hunter

While searching for an apartment in London I met a member of the the essential living estate agents staff named Erin hunter. Erin was a breath of fresh air while tackling the pit falls of flat hunting when your not from England, she was efficient, courteous, professional and new her product inside out. She had made our experience easier and definitely a member of staff you want to hold onto!!!

Great place to live

Verified Resident

Great location next to the underground, and really great residents team always happy to help. The communal facilities are lovely and it’s nice to meet other people in the building.

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

Great pubs and restaurants, and choice of food shops. Being so close to the underground station makes it feel safe if coming home late at night.

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

It can be quite noisy, especially at night time if the window is open. The flats also get very hot in the summer!

A really wonderful place to live

Verified Resident

Vantage Point is a beautiful building with excellent facilities. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into making sure that it is not only designed to look modern and welcoming, but also has a lot of very useful and practical elements.

Everything within the apartments themselves is high quality, from the kitchen with it’s fantastic use of utilising space to little touches here and there that make you realise how much thought has gone into the development.

The really great thing about Vantage Point is that there is so much to enjoy outside of your apartment too, with two beautiful community balconies, a library/office space, a lounge area, dinning room with fully fitted kitchen, gym and games room.

Location wise, you are practically on top of Archway tube station and there is an abundance of supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants on your door step.

The residence team also make Vantage Point a great place to live. They are on reception 24/7 and are always there to greet you, take parcels and help with anything you need. They are a friendly bunch and having them there really helps you feel secure in the building.

Overall, I can’t fault this place!

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

Great choice of supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants. Pick a direction and you’ll no doubt find a little hidden gem. Practically on top of Archway tube station (Northern Line) and within walking distance to Upper Holloway (London Overground). Plenty of bus stops nearby too, as well as a number of Zip Cars if you need to rent a car.

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

Quite a few dogs here. I think it’s great, but if you have a serious dog problem, phobia or something it may bother you. However, they are not allowed in communal areas so you will only pass them in the lifts and at reception.

Best accommodation experience

Verified Resident

Having lived in many places, living in Vantage Point has been the best experience so far. I love living in such modern building with beautiful exterior. It’s not only it’s design that’s perfect, but also the services they offer. A member of staff always on site has been helpful in many situations from fixing something in the apartment to helping with the post etc. Having the option to go to the gym anytime I want is of a great benefit. Moreover, it’s good to be able to hang out in so many common areas. As a student I don’t have to travel to my uni library as I can just stay in Vantage Point and study there! Also, it’s a pet friendly accommodation which is quite hard to find in London.

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

I love living close to the tube station. It’s very access whether by tube or by bus. The building is also located close to 2 big parks which is beneficial for people with kids and pets. There are plenty of grocery storEs to choose from. The only disadvantage I find is to not have that many restaurant options

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

How much support and help we will get from the staff

Fantastic staff and great shared spaces

Verified Resident

I’ve lived in Vantage Point for over a year now and don’t think there is another building in London that I would rather live in. The staff is great, especially the front desk crew. The building is really nice and communal spaces are great for hanging outside of your apartment.
For the price, you get a super nice flat, shared amenities, and a dog friendly building. All of which I was looking for in my living requirements.

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

Public transit is really convenient as we are above a tube station and have many bus stops around the building. Nice selection of restaurants and bars, having Lost Boys Pizza and Hot Wok Kitchen in walking distance has been a pleasure when you don’t feel like cooking after work. Best part is the proximity to Aldi, Co Op, and M&S though!
Only downfall really is that the gym is on the top floor so the ceiling is low and you can’t be too loud. Also, because the building is so centrally located to lots of great things, it can get pretty loud outside, especially when the bars close.

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

Wish I had known how mad the Northern line would be during the week. It’s already completely full most mornings by the time it gets to Archway.
Also wish there was a dog relief area closer by to the building.
