The cube is the latest edition to Gosterwood Street, Deptford. A true example of blending old with new; this two-bedroom house forms the end of a Victorian terrace.
“Renewable” may grab the headlines but in reality, the key fundamentals of a successful “green” home remain what they have always been, low energy design and investment in the fabric of the property. The Cube however is certainly that and much more. This property is truly unique, built to code 4 sustainable standards, exceeding buyers expectations in every dimension.
Accommodation is arranged over three levels with under floor heating to the ground floor, creating a warm and homely welcome. The kitchen is open plan to the living area, encouraging casual and carefree living as well as a perfect space for entertaining. A multi-fuel wood burning stove is the focal point, whilst additional natural light is invited in by a glass lantern with blue LED halo trim. The kitchen is fully equipped with integrated appliances, high gloss units, quartz worktops and a porcelain tiled floor. The outside space steals the show with an enchanting and generous partially walled garden which is private and excluded. Flower beds bursting with Lavender and a gravel bonded path lead the way from the decked area.
The first floor offers a double bedroom served by a shower room, and on the second floor is the master bedroom and en-suite. The shower room and en-suite are “boutique” in style with grey polished wall tiles and jewel diamond effect floor tiles, including LED mirrored cabinets. Both bedrooms are carpeted with triple glazing minimising all noise, creating a cosy space to relax and sleep.
Gosterwood Street is historically an industrial location which previously served as the heartland for industry in Deptford and is now a thriving residential community in the London Borough of Lewisham.
Locally there is an attractive balance of converted period buildings mixed with modern residences, a clear result of the government investment that has seen the area flourish in true re-generation.
The Cube sits prominently within one of South East London’s most sought-after locations.
