3 bedroom detached house for saleLordship Lane, London, SE22
This remarkably conceived four-bedroom house, designed by award-winning designer Jonathan Tuckey, is arranged around a central courtyard on a secluded plot just behind Lordship Lane in East Dulwich.
Widely known as The Yard House, as a consequence of its ‘yard’ position, the house exemplifies an increasingly popular response to the capital’s housing demands, namely ambitious, stylish projects born of demanding spatial constraints.
The materials utilised throughout draw from the robust character of the adjacent brick buildings and the raw qualities of the ‘yard’ site. While concrete blocks are prominently combined with a timber-and-steel superstructure frame, the house’s defining element is certainly the courtyard facade, lined in translucent polycarbonate Rodeca panels, the same variety used at Herzog & De Meuron’s Trinity Laban Centre in nearby Deptford.
The courtyard forms the primary space around which the life of the house revolves. Tuckey envisioned this area as a kind of outdoor room to which all the main interior spaces are connected.
North-facing workshops are placed nearest to the street entrance, with the bedroom wing opposite. The two wings are connected by a double-height living and dining central section. The courtyard is expressed as a formal, ordered space which gives the house a dignified character and enables the creation of a proper ‘front’ to the building by placing the main entrance centrally within this space. The stairs to the first floor arrive above this entrance, with the porch roof acting as a balcony, giving views through the courtyard to the gardens below.
The northern end of Lordship Lane is brimming with independent shops, delis, cafes, bars and restaurants, including the recently renovated Dulwich Picturehouse. Peckham Rye Park is a short walk away. Dulwich Leisure Centre has a public swimming pool and gym. There are a number of ‘outstanding’ schools in the area, including Dulwich Hamlet Junior School.
The nearest station is East Dulwich, a short bus ride away, running Southern services to London Bridge in around 13 minutes.
