A creative home and a home for creatives. 

A repurposed warehouse in South East London – which was also once a chewing gum factory – is now an extraordinary industrial space in which to live and work. 

Head to the end of this picturesque street, following the line of pretty Victorian houses. By the time you reach the imposing factory whose design and presence is so different to the rest of the road, you know you’ve arrived. 

This is live/work on a grand scale. The owners have made every effort to preserve the industrial identity of the building while ensuring that the space didn’t feel cold; after all this is fundamentally a home. Much of the old interior has been removed and replaced with stylish, up-to-date fittings. 

As you enter through the heavy warehouse front door and pass along the reception hall, the first thing to hit you is an impressive white kitchen which wraps around the corner and stops by the bottom of the stairs. This floor houses the double bedroom and the large bathroom, with its marble bath top and a fun shower cubicle that makes full use of the corner of the room. 

Head up to the first floor: the grandeur of this level is overwhelming. Not only does it make full use of a completely open-plan floor area, the Crittall style windows on one side of the room and the large picture widow on the other deliver amazing natural light, making this such an exciting space to work in as well as having the central floor space for living. 

Step out from the kitchen and enjoy the private patio or head up the pathway and enjoy the recently installed private home studio (and another sun-kissed patio) that can be used for entertaining or work. 

The surrounding area of Deptford and Lewisham has seen some of the most dramatic regeneration of any corner of London in recent years. Lewisham station is just a few minutes on foot with services to London Bridge, Canon Street and Charing Cross, while Elverson Road DLR is just at the end of the road and only nine stops from Canary Wharf. 

There’s a huge mix of entertainment and social haunts close by. Deptford High Street, with its market, artisan coffee shops and bakeries always provide sustenance; Bread & Butler at Creekside is a local favourite. 

Once you’ve explored the scene on the doorstep, Greenwich and Blackheath can be reached easily on foot or public transport and both offering a whole weekend’s worth of lively and sociable things to do, from pubs to clubs and galleries to green spaces.
