Me & my boyf live in Simla House. I've lived in the block for over a year now and love it there. I've had no safety issues in the area so far - touch wood - indeed the area is very chilled compared to the likes of Brixton and Stockwell, where I have lived previously (nightmare). The tenants are a real mix of young professionals, families and the odd colourful council character (ie drunk) - and there are lots
of gay men living there; the blocks are nicknamed 'fairy towers' by those in the know. The Leather Exchange
bar, just opposite, labels itself as 'gay friendly', so I think you and your boyf would be in good company. We currently rent our pad, but are considering buying. We'll be moving a little bit further South East though, where we will hopefully get a bit more for our money.
