This is a really nice, well designed development. Communal areas are clean and tidy and the shared courtyard is well maintained. The concierge and developer team are quick to respond to queries or issues, and although I haven’t had my snagging visit completed yet due to another lockdown, I have high hopes the snags will be readily resolved (eg, some finishes around the skirting boards, bathroom fan doesn’t work). When I’ve had cause to request emergency callout due to plumbing issues, this has been quickly taken care of.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
The area is well connected with the DLR on our doorstep and frequent buses. The Elizabeth Line will also be nearby when it opens. City Airport is very close which I use frequently for domestic flights. Supermarkets and retail parks are both in the vicinity, and in the next week or so we’ll have a Co-op store in the building which will be very handy. There is also a really nice pub just over the road.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The only downside I have noted so far is that, due to my flat being courtyard-facing, I don’t get a huge amount of daylight. I’d recommend assessing this for yourself if you’re viewing properties here, as I imagine it varies quite a bit in each building. I viewed the property in the middle of the day in Summer, so mid afternoon in Winter is quite a bit dimmer!
What is the best feature of your home:
The flat is finished to a high standard with quality fixtures and fittings, and appliances. My balcony is really spacious and will be a nice addition in the warmer months.
The development is secure, and I feel safe living here.
