Resident profiles - Andrew & Chris, House, New Islington
Location is always fairly near the top of the list for most people looking for a property, but the community around that location is just as important.
Andrew and Chris already knew the area was thriving, but since moving in have been equally impressed by the sense of community in the area.
“It’s the community’s shared values and shared spirit that makes it – it’s a really nice place to live.”
“We had an opportunity and we moved into an area that is regenerating very rapidly,” Chris told us. “It has a fantastic reputation for food, drink, socialising – two minutes’ walk across the canal and there’s some superb pubs, bars and restaurants. It’s a really great place to be.”
Andrew agrees: “We could have chosen a house in the suburbs, and we’d have just lived there. It would have just been a house. Here we can be ourselves, we can enjoy it – we have a fantastic community.”
