This bright and airy two-bedroom flat is situated on the top floor of a small building on Deptford's vibrant high street. The space is defined by its wall of west-facing, metal-framed windows, which flood the open plan living areas with an abundance natural light. The newly refurbished interiors have been inspired by late 1980's to early 1990's Milan.
Colour-popping, Italian tiles create character in the kitchen and bathroom, whilst brilliant white sees its way through all the walls and ceilings for an ultra minimalist ambience. A neutral-toned, dotted Italian rubber flooring runs throughout; modern and durable, it's reminiscent of that which was originally designed for Milan's underground system in 1962.
The kitchen and living room area, with its beautiful curved wall - reminiscent of something you'd find in a Corbusier masterpiece - opens out onto a full-width balcony, with views over the rooftops and green spaces beyond. This unique aspect is mirrored to create a second bedroom, which could also make an appealing home studio or office. There is also enough light and space in the hallway for a desk, if you need to work from home and want to create a separate area.
The flat's recent refurbishment included rewiring throughout. The space's brand new light fittings are of mid-century Italian origin, designed by driving forces of Italian design Vico Magistretti and Michele de Lucchi. The bathroom fittings are equally as considered, sourced from the French industrial architect and designer, Philippe Starck.
The back, east-facing wall features sash windows with wooden frames, which afford both the master bedroom and the kitchen area plenty of natural light. There is also ample storage, thanks to granted use of the large loft space above.
As the location for one of Britain's earliest royal dockyards, Deptford holds plenty of historic interest. The flat is located within the Deptford High Street and St Paul’s Church conservation area, which encompasses St Paul's church (Grade I), Albury Street's Grade II* listed houses, and several small buildings on Deptford High Street and Tanners Hill.
Deptford's artistic edge and indie aura are right on your doorstep from this buzzy location. The flat is 3 minutes walk from the Thames, at the bottom of Watergate Street, where the Thames Path runs easterly towards Greenwich. There's a good handful of green spaces in the Deptford area too, and a little further afield - a leisurely 20-minute walk - is Greenwich Park, where you can spot deer over The Wilderness or search for stars at the Royal Greenwich Observatory.
Deptford station is just a few minutes away on foot, where you'll find Deptford Market Yard and its independent dining and shopping spots. New Cross Station (Zone 2), which sits on the Brighton Main Line and the London Overground, is a 10-minute walk away. Canary Wharf is a short journey away on the DLR, which also links directly to Bank and Stratford.
