Staines upon Thames


After weeks of working with patients on Covid wards during the coronavirus crisis at Charing Cross Hospital, therapy technician Farah Choudrey is now enjoying life in her new home at London Square Staines Upon Thames.

She moved into the flat at the beginning of July after completing a sales process which took place during the busiest time of her professional life.

Farah, who is 30 years old, had moved from Watford to be with her family in Stanwell temporarily. She and her mother drove past the London Square Staines Upon Thames development in the heart of the riverside town and decided to take a look.

Farah said:

I know the area really well. I used to go to school in Ashford and I was keen to move back. The town has changed a lot and is a great place to live. When I toured the development, I was struck by the amazing design and fell in love with the two-bedroom apartment I have now purchased. There were also some good incentives on offer.

I feel as though I am living in a 5 star hotel! Everything in the development has been designed with careful consideration and with the residents in mind, in lovely grounds, with gardens, 24-hour concierge and a residents’ gym. It’s an excellent location, close to the shops and restaurants. There are market stalls selling fresh produce and street food within walking distance and Staines Food Court is across the road from the development. There are good places for coffee and sitting near the river.

She added:

There was great communication from the London Square sales team throughout the process. They understood my personal circumstances and how busy I was at work. Dario Scimeca, the sales manager, showed patience and kindness throughout, amazingly helpful. After a stressful few months, I am so happy living here.

Farah cycles to work in West London, using cycle routes all the way, to help keep fit for her favourite hobby – competitive boxing.

I work out on the balcony and use the gym. I have been boxing for about eight years now and compete in the flyweight category in contests all over the UK and Europe. I am looking for a new coach and club in Staines but I have also started a boxing work-out with residents here in the development. We all met up recently and talked about doing some socially distanced activities together to get to know each other so I am now leading a work-out in the communal gardens where there’s lots of space. We also have yoga and high intensity circuits in the pipeline.
