Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Welcome to our lovely 1930s home in a leafy area of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Our home is stylishly decorated & cosy.
Downstairs is mostly open plan with a separate living room. We have a large kitchen diner, a living area with log burning stove and a light, bright playroom full of toys (plus a Playstation,piano & various other instruments!). All rooms open directly onto a large patio and garden via sliding glass doors.
Outside we have a trampoline, tree swing, garden games plus adult and child bikes and scooters.
Upstairs is 1 double bedroom with kingsize bed, a double children's room with bunk beds, a small office plus a bathroom. On the 3rd floor is a double bedroom (with twin beds) and ensuite. Our home is on a quiet, tree-lined street with a nature and play area just behind our house. We're within 2 minutes walk of a 700 acre park with lakes, bike trails and cafes.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighbourhood is lovely and vibrant with shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants just 5 minutes walk up the road. Our house is also just 2 minutes walk from one of the largest parks in Europe - Roundhay Park. Full of woodland walks, 2 lakes, Victorian bandstands and plenty of space to play, cycle or stroll the park also has 2 playgrounds, a skatepark and 2 cafe/restaurants.

We are just 5 miles from Leeds City Centre where you'll find art galleries, a museum, cinemas, theatre, fantastic Victorian and modern shopping arcades plus all the other amenities you'd expect from a large, vibrant city centre! We are just a short drive from medieval York and the spa town of Harrogate.

We have very easy access to the countryside with the Yorkshire Dales making a perfect day trip.

Our nearest airport is either Leeds Bradford or Manchester and there are great train links to other parts of the UK, including London (2.20mins) and Edinburgh (4 hours).
