Having just finished our 1 year living here, I can honestly say that the bobs have gone above and beyond to ensure our every need is met. We couldn’t feel more welcome, and more at ease, having the bobs handling everything from the smallest malfunction to delivering our parcels, to organizing various lovely events to bring the residents together and reiterate the sense of community. With the social media groups and the newly launched app, communication is perfect, and every issue is tended to immediately and professionally. The apartment is quite spacious (2 bed 2 bath and a big balcony, with a lot of storage space) and we have had just the smoothest move from a huge apartment back home. Having just landed in the UK a year ago, Fizzy was the perfect companion for us making this an easy transition for both us and our pets, who seem to love it. The communal gardens and office space on the ground floor add to the value of living here, with several tenants working from there, and families enjoying their spare time chilling in the gardens or enjoying a barbecue at one of the events organized by the staff. The flat is well let with lots of sunlight coming in (we are south facing). Others have said that the finishing is cheap, but I disagree and believe that Fizzy has done a great job solving unfinished tasks by the contractors, and even 1 year later, they are still following up on the last small details to ensure that we have a perfect home, and it already has been much more than that. The furniture package is great value for money, quite modern and trendy. All in all the propery is brand new, and it shows inside and out. We are envied by our friends when they visit. The hot water and heating have broken down a couple of times during the year, but they were instantly rectified, and I wouldn’t imagine this speed of service anywhere other than at a 5 star hotel, which living here has felt like.
This is a Zone 3 property that is 2 minutes from the tube, and 12 minutes from Kings Cross. You really couldn’t ask for more. We intend to stay here for quite some time!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Two minutes away from the tube, with a COOP right next to us. A new Creative Coworking space just launched opposite the property, and this is a dog owner’s dream. 10 minutes to the Wetlands and a bit longer to the forest. 1 tube stop away from Walthamstow and its lovely village and farmers markets. 1 tube stop from Tottenham Hale’s large stores (B and Q, Curry’s, Argos, etc…) and IKEA is 10 minutes from there. What I dislike is that we are a bit limited in terms of food delivery, but that is changing gradually as more services start catering to our area.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Luckily we live on the side away from the property under construction, but we did not know there was construction happening right across. This is no longer a problem for any tenants though, as the construction work has ended more or less.
