Sycamore House Residents
There’s a little piece of heaven just off the Goldhawk Road.
A place full of beauty, many flowers to behold.
As I sit in my little heaven: lost in thought of old and new The peace and calm around me, to touch it would be gold.
And then I hear the ripple of the water in the fish pond not far away, Saying Troubles? Just wash them all away.
Then a voice from the distance says “Hi – How are you?”
Lonely? How can I be “in my home in my heaven”
Just by the Sycamore tree.

Poetry Moment at Sycamore House
I think I’m very lucky to be living here. I love my new flat, I feel safe and secure and the garden is such a pleasure.
Sycamore House is a haven of tranquillity in busy west London. The residents extend a warm welcome to new arrivals.
Peace of mind and security are an added bonus. Beautiful garden to relax and socialise in. Optional participation in social events/entertainment.
The security is excellent, it gives me great peace of mind. I enjoy the community spirit. I appreciate the facilities of the launderette and the hall.
The pleasure of your personal manager, piece of garden to enjoy tending, the bonus of a large landscaped garden to enjoy without the work – Heaven
As a resident of 20 years I know that Sycamore House is a pleasant and safe place to live after retirement.
When you come through the entrance it’s like entering another world. You’d never know you were in London.
John Betts House Residents
I am quite content living here. I enjoy the lovely gardens.
I feel very safe living here. There is plenty going on here. The warden is very nice. The people here are also very nice.
I appreciate living in JBH – the feeling of security is re-assuring, the garden is lovely, and the recent and on going refurbishments add to the overall surroundings. It is a very pleasant place to be.
I am very happy here and have been for the seven years that I have been here. I am pleased with the decorations that I have had done and find Jill a very pleasant warden.
I have lived in JBH since January this year and I find myself in a very fortunate situation that this is so. I could not wish to live in any better accommodation and I hope to be here for the remainder of my life.
My name is Doris, I am 92 years old and I have been living here for 7 years. I am very happy here; it is very peaceful and quiet and I feel very safe and secure. We have a lovely garden to sit in during the summers in the winter my flat is lovely and warm. The warden is very helpful and friendly as are the other residents
I love my flat. I love the garden. The other residents are friendly and we have some good social events. The staff are very helpful and it is reassuring to have someone to call on in emergencies, or if urgent repairs to the building are needed.
From the time I moved into JBH I have loved it and all the people and wardens have been wonderful. I have never regretted moving into JBH I love it here.
We are a friendly group of people and have a rather nice communal garden. We also have space on our balconies for plants (even tomato plants)
Living in JBH is an absolute joy. To me it is an oasis in a very harsh world. I live in comfort with wonderful company and beautiful gardens to admire every day. What more could I possibly want.
