Convenient but too far from central london

Verified Resident

The development is great as there is a concierge available 24 hours a day, the upstairs area is nice as it has really nice gardens which provide a great view to see, however, sometimes it gets too hot.

What is the best feature of your home?

The best feature of my home is that it is spacious

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

The area is convenient but far from central london, there is no night transportation apart from buses only, at night it can be a little worrying at times

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

No parking areas for residents, parking is too expensive and not private

Love this place

Verified Resident

This development is amazing, i love it very much, i do not want to leave. The quality of life in the development is amazing. The town itself can be quite busy so this is a nice haven from it. It is very spacious and very quiet. I do not hear my neighbours which is fantastic.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised?

They have not responded well to the problems that i have raised. I have been trapped in the lift previously and they still haven’t fixed it.

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

The area is overrated, it does not give all the facilities and amenities that is needed in general. That being said the transport is amazing. However, the quality of the shops and restaurants are quite poor

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

Landlord has been unhelpful in the past

Lovely flats in great location but sub-par staff

I would change how the staff ran the building as i believe that they are doing a poor job

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

Transport links are great, and the amenities are also really good, however there is a lot of litter

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

That the staff were going to be as poor as they were

Great area

The development is convenient in its design as it is above a supermarket which is great. The building and flats itself are really spacious, with each building having a really long balcony or winter garden, both of which have good views. There is also a 24 hour concierge which is helpful

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

Temperature management is almost too well maintained, it can occasionally get too hot.

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

The area has great transport, there is a real sense of community. There are some restaurants which are good and there is local history.

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

No

This is a great and upcoming area.

The outside of the building isn’t as nice as it is on the inside. There are good transport links which is helpful. There are good grocery shops, however there are not many shops for clothing. The royal arsenal park is nice and closeby, quiet and safe.

What is the best feature of your home?

The best feature of the home is that it is modern and hotel like, the shower is nice and constantly has hot water which is a nice thing to not worry about.

Area going downhill

Verified Resident

There are loads of scary young kids who may be part of gangs, there are some drunken people who roam the area and it is known for its stabbings as well. The shops here are not good and there used to be pop up shops which were good but are no longer here. This place is good to walk dogs and the upstairs garden is nice.

What is the best feature of your home?

The best feature of my home is the balcony and the upstairs garden, both of which are great

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

This is a nice building in general, however there may be cladding issues which i am worried about following grenfell, the area itself is not great and is going downhill as most establishments which were good like starbucks have moved out the area. There are good transport links

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

Not necessarily as i was well informed beforehand, this is an affordable place to live in london
