Like the title says, there is a great sense of community here which is almost unheard of when you live in high rise apartments in London. Almost half the tenants have pets, so our dog has a lot of friends to say hello to and some neighbours even babysit each other’s dogs. The apartments are very well insulated and sound proof, never had to use heating much at all up where we live. The building managers (Bobs) are genuinely nice and they take away a lot of stress with dealing with L&Q directly, as well as maintenance issues. Everything inside the flats are to a high standard. Very happy here and so is my large dog!
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The park behind is convenient – to take your dog to. Its pretty close to the station. which is nice. Dislike the sort of petty drug related activities happening in the park at night, also seen cops a couple of times. So the area isn’t perfect, but i have not felt unsafe so far but thats not under Fizzy’s control.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The parcel room is situation is not the best, because there is no 24 hr concierge sp parcels have been stolen many times from there. I wish there was a better system for that – but unfortunately, there is a small risk of things getting stolen because either some people have accessed illegally or the door was not shut. So I order some things to work now if they are too valuable and have to carry home which is a shame.
