new build with nice views and good area – stoke newington close by – I LOVE IT

Verified Resident

The buildings are all new and have very good architecture and views.

I like that Stoke Newington is close by which is really nice with restaurants and shops.

The safety aspect has been fine so far and my house is very functional . Given it is functional this saves a lot of energy in terms of tidying up and it is very liveable. However it lacks some storage options.

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

I like that there is a lot of nature close by with the reservoir and the facilities.

I dislike that this development is a little far from the city centre but this is not a big issue.

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

I would have liked to have known stoke newington was so close. I really really like that area.

great hidden gem

I like the interiors and the layout is well thought through. I really like my block and I feel like it is private and not looked on. In general it feels safe with lots of families around. There is a water centre and discounts for family activities.

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

I like the location and the station is very close. They do a lot of things for residents. There is a lot going on for example screening amd community based sports. These classes are free and you dont have to be a resident .The reservoir is very unique for london.

however the 24 hour security could be better to feel safer.

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

I really think this is a gem. There is good transport and water and greenery. This development has as bit of everything and I would recommend coming to north london.

Nice on one side, noisy on the other.

Verified Resident

This is a great place to live. I have lived in various properties on the development. The views are stunning especially if you are lucky enough to look onto the gardens. It is 30 minutes to the city via public transport or very easy to cycle. There are not a lot of shops or restaurants close by and parts of the area are still under development. It can get noisy at times on one side of the estate

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

I like the views of gardens and wetlands and the facilities this development has to offer but the neighbouring areas create a lot of noise.

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

No.

Let us swim in the reservoir

Verified Resident

The design of the building is not too high rise, but is fairly neutral in terms of the colour scheme

What I love about the area is that it is very community based, which means everyone respects and embraces each other, which brings positivity into the environment.

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

The reservoir is lovely, spacious, fresh and green, which helps to welcome our locals.

There is nothing personally to dislike about the area.

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

I wish i would have know that the residents were allowed to swim in the resevoir.

Child friendly.

Verified Resident

The view as everyone agrees, balcony adds extra space.
Transport options are very flexible.
Design and clean feel to the whole development, you never see litter around.

Nothing to change if we could! Landlord is a shame but would get that anywhere else.

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

Greenery and management is excellent.

It is an amazing place to bring up a child, always feel safe.

Surroundings around manor house
Lack of nice pubs

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

Concierge service is excellent and should be promoted as so.

Lovely design, new built development

Verified Resident

It is a new built. I feel much more comfortable here because there is a lift inside. The design of the flat is nice as well because I have a balcony. There is a gym, a swiming pool and a sauna inside the building free to access by the tenants.

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

I like the area because it is clean. You take the bus for 2 stops to the high street.

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

Nothing to complain about, I am very satisfied with everything.

Spacious 1 bedroom apartment with nice private block garden

Verified Resident

I like my flat , it is big for a one bedroom and very spacious with high ceilings. The design is functional and there is a nice terrace. There is also a private garden for the block that is lovely to relax in.

I am on the ground floor but my bedroom does not have windows I can open at night as there is only one door leading outside acting as a window.

I would also like to see more restaurants and cafes.

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

I really like that this area is well kept and clean. The bushes and plants always look great. However, I dislike how high the service charges are and I sometimes feel slightly unsafe in the evenings.

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

It has changed a lot and it is getting better in terms of saety and becoming more modern. I really like living here.

Good 6 years ago.

Verified Resident

Management is so poor. When things are broken they stay broken, there is a severe lack of duty and care especially considering how much rent is.

As titled, it was good 6 years ago but has been a downward slope since then.

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

When I first moved in it was really good value for moneybut now it is not

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

Wish I had known how badly it had been built and poor design.
