Sage 8.5.3 local gulp not found in


I have a problem with gulp on my past project that I re-opened after format on my laptop. I now installed LTS version of Node.js (8.9.4) + npm (5.6.0) and did

npm install -v npm@latest
npm install -g gulp bower
npm instsall (in theme dir)
bower install (in theme dir)

When trying to gulp I get an error:

Local gulp not found in

When I do npm install gulp I get the result:

npm WARN deprecated graceful-fs@3.0.11: please upgrade to graceful-fs 4 for compatibility with current and future versions of Node.js
up to date in 4.047s

Can’t really figure out what’s happening but I suspect it is related to Node.js version. Can anyone tell what is the latest version of Node.js and npm that supports Sage 8.9.4?
