Partly converted from the fabulously monikered New Cross Empire Theatre of Varieties, dating back to 1899, Theatre Place is a gated, private residential development set back and screened from the New Cross Rd.
The programme of Studio, One and Two bedroom apartments was completed just 6 years ago, and on offer here is the one bedroom, ground floor former show home.
Secure, wrought-iron gates provide access to a tranquil courtyard. The sizeable bike store is here too.
Mosey on down to the end of the block to flat 6, which is fronted by a full-width private terrace.
In through the front door and you are welcomed into the voluminous, high ceilinged living space (surely a nod to its former heritage). It's a perfect social and entertaining space. Light floods in through the full-height picture window and dining area skylight. Wooden flooring adds a warm, natural feel.
The kitchen is well fitted with integrated appliances and the natural theme is continued with solid timber worktops.
An internal lobby leads to the double bedroom, positioned at the front and overlooking the terrace.
Opposite is the bathroom, with a crisp, white, three-piece suite. A skylight in here provides for natural light, a welcome bonus.
Transport is very accessible and super-efficient from here. New Cross station with Mainline and Overground connections is 5 mins up the road, and Deptford Bridge DLR 3 mins down. Buses-a-plenty outside on the main road too.

So, what's the buzz? This bit of S.E. London is an historic goldmine. Henry VIII built his navy and Peter the Great learned his shipbuilding skills in the old Naval Dockyards, and from here you are about a 15 minute walk to the River Thames. Shakespeare’s protégé Christopher Marlowe is buried in an unmarked grave at St Paul’s Church, which also played host to Brad Pitt in Interview With A Vampire (sadly the scene never made it to the big screen!).
Deptford High Street has regular market days, banks, library, leisure centre, and a growing number of restaurants, bars and cafes.
The Royal Albert, just over the road, is a friendly watering hole, and the Amersham Arms opposite New Cross Station has some pretty cutting edge live music nights.
Deptford Market Yard is an amazing transformation of the station, plaza and old carriage ramp, and has upped the cool status several notches, a wonderful hub of bars and eateries like Little Nan’s, the Tap Room, the Dirty Apron and Marcella on the High St is a fab Italian. The Job Centre pub does a great value Sunday roast.
The lease is a whopping 144 years, and she's chain free and ready to go...
