I'm looking to buy either a 1 or 2 bed flat in Devon Mansions - do you know someone who is thinking about selling their flat? I've already checked with local estate agents and they have nothing on their books..

Many thanks,

No, but there is a 3 bed flat for 245,000 in St Olaves Estate directly behind the Elusive Camel. Saw it in a window of an estate agents on Bermondsey Street last Saturday.

Many thanks but I think that flat is on the ground floor right? Would def prefer something above the 1st floor...

Wouldn't have thought so - the flat is over two floors so would be over the second and third floors I guess.

I live in the block and as far as I know all the 2 and 3 beds are on the second floor. Not 100% sure though I'm afraid!

Devon Mansions, depending on the block, has a reputation for poor sound insulation - I know of a number of people who have poor relations (This is putting it mildly) with their neighbours due to ongoing disputes. The flats were built pre-stereos/TV's etc and just aren't able to cope with contemporary lifestyles re noise levels.

That's not good news about the poor sound insulation!! Is it the same for all ex-council blocks in this area (of comparable age)? Or would you say that it's something unique to Devon Mansions...?
