On the whole, beautifully designed and finished homes – such as big windows, lovely wood flooring, marble kitchen tops, modern bathroom tiles, bedroom shimmer, carpet, modern wood decking on balcony. A real luxury feel. Although the kitchen looks small, it is so well designed with loads of cupboard/storage space. Communal areas kept clean and tidy. Major design hiccup in the bathroom, where spotlights are poorly located leaving you in deep shadow at the mirror. Lovely large storage cupboard with washer/drier, although no shelving installed, so space is wasted until we can get that fixed. Fitted wardrobe in corner of bedroom is a bit of a cheap afterthought and in the wrong corner really. Great gym onsite. Concierge (daytime) friendly and helpful. Property management seem more responsive than previous home, but still require chasing, and haven’t managed to deal with a leaseholder who has constructed a high fence (against the lease) and another who has sheets and towels hanging from their windows. These few irresponsible residents spoil an otherwise lovely, modern, well-kept development.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Kilburn Park tube (Bakerloo line) is just a stone’s throw away, fantastically close to Paddington, e.g. for Heathrow Express. Supermarkets (Sainsbury’s, M&S food hall, Tesco Express) a short walk, although Kilburn High Road is badly kept (litter, fly-tipping, vagrants). A short stroll to the salubrious residential neighbourhoods of St John’s Wood and Maida Vale, with all they have to offer (cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, Lords cricket ground, Little Venice, etc). All in all, an excellent location in zone 2.

Spacious property even for a one bedroom, with lovely big windows (double-aspect) over tree-lined residential street (Oxford Road).
