Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Please note: I do not drive a car. I will refuse any destination where a car is needed. (But I like bicycles and public transport)

My small cosy terraced house in London was built about 1900. It is an absolutely typical Victorian terraced house, modest, in very good condition, with 2 bedrooms and a tiny secluded leafy garden.

It is well and harmoniously decorated with mostly original features plus 60s era antiques and my personal world travel mementos. Comfortable for one, two or perhaps three people.

A 10 minute walk down Roslyn Rd- a quiet residential street- and you're at Seven Sisters tube station. Then a 15 minute tube ride and you're in central London. All London tube trains run every few minutes until well after midnight, and some lines, including mine, now run all through the night on Friday and Saturday.

If you prefer, there are numerous local minicab offices where I live, plus buses, night buses, traditional London black cabs and easiest of all, Uber.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The house is in West Green, a peaceful, respectable multi-cultural area. There is a good corner shop only 2 minutes away.

Throughout residential areas of West Green, car parking is restricted to residents and their guests. For this reason there is always space and I can supply weekly parking permits.

A stroll away up St Ann's Rd is busy Green Lanes where I buy all my fresh fruit and vegetables- it's known across north London for its multitude of small ethnic food shops and small restaurants, including Greek, Turkish, Kurdish and many other.

A stroll in the other direction you can find an intriguing cluster of African shops & restaurants on West Green Rd at the bustling High Rd end.

There are two small parks very nearby. Walk a little further to a large Tesco, a large Sainsbury's, the Shopping Mall at Wood Green, a large park and an indoor swimming pool.

Not far away, try the extensive canalside walks along the leafy flatlands of the River Lea, young lively Stroud Green Road, fashionable Stoke Newington Church Street, gloriously overgrown Victorian cemetery Abney Park, and only a 15 minute tube ride away, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Oxford Circus and the centre of London.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

I'm careful with my own home and I'll be just as careful with yours. I don't drive a car so I can't consider destinations where one is required, but I like public transport.

For me a holiday is not about traveling as far as possible, or taking selfies in famous places. It's the very opposite- I look for a place that's attractive enough to stay put. I just want to walk or cycle around, absorb local culture, watch local life, cook good food and live quietly.

I've traveled very extensively throughout my life and I'll consider anywhere that's interesting, including great cities, historic towns, hot beaches and tranquil villages in outstanding scenery.

I'm retired with very few commitments, extremely flexible, and available to travel at short notice.
