Lucas St sits on the fringes of the St John's Conservation Area in Deptford, and is home to some of SE8's most appealing Victorian housing stock. Head along towards the north end of the street and you'll find this very fine example indeed.
Enter and you'll soon appreciate why this property is a triumph of style AND substance. Starting in the front reception, its bristling with period detail, including the ceiling cornicing, picture rail, sash window and elegant feature fireplace all complimenting the mid tone decor and stripped flooring.
The rear reception continues the theme, with coordinating decor and fireplace, and there's a door to the side return (you can also access the garden from the hallway).
Into the rear addition and the dining room is up next. There's another gorgeous fireplace, some fine, traditional built in cabinetry and rich stripped flooring. we lead on from here into the kitchen, replaced by the present owners and styled to reflect the period feel of the house.
Upstairs onto a deep and spacious landing, we move into the master bedroom. Twin sashes to the front allow lots of light to pour in, and there's wall to wall fitted storage. Behind is bedroom two, a good double.
Back onto the landing and next up is the bathroom, a long, slender affair but surprisingly well fitted and with twin sash windows it's amazingly bright.
This brings us neatly to the rear third bedroom, again a decent double with views over the rear garden.
The outside space is a perfect blend of greenery and usability courtesy of the generous lawn and the raised, decked seating area, in total stretching back some 60 feet or so.
Lucas St is perfectly placed for transport and schools, with St John's, New Cross and Deptford DLR stations all providing easy access to London Bridge, Cannon St and Docklands, and the City and West End via the London Overground.
Local schools include Lucas Vale, Ashmead, St Stephen's CofE and Myatt Garden primaries, with Deptford Green and Addey & Stanhope providing secondary places.
There's lots to do around, and plenty of park space including Friendly Gardens, Brookmill Park ,Ladywell Fields and Greenwich & Blackheath. Deptford High St is very handy, with regular market, banks, library, leisure centre, and emerging night/weekend life. I particularly rate Marcella, The Job Centre, London Velo and The Winemakers. M & D is a great little Japanese cafe/takeaway too.
Deptford Market Yard is a fairly new offering thanks to a complete transformation of the station and arches.
The Tapas Room, Little Nan's Bar, Taproom and Buster Mantis all attract a trendy, young crowd.
