There’s a weird central hot water system and we’ve had several days without hot water lately. The bike storage space is often over crowded. The service fees are very high and I often think we pay too much for what we get. However there is a concierge and security, and my building has a lovely communal garden. I’m happy I’m on the ground floor because I hear there are often problems with the lift.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
There are some nice restaurants and cafés nearby, and access to green space is excellent. Apparently there are some bike and phone thefts but the area feels generally safe. There is not much traffic noise. The reservoirs are gorgeous.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The central water heating system is not ideal. Residents have no control and it’s not reliable.
If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:
More bicycle storage space. Its annoying getting home from work only to find it full and needing to bring the bike into my flat.
