Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Cosy and eclectic home with a garden, perfect for a couple. Escape the hurlyburly of London in our serene private walled garden or walk around the corner for a selection of pavement cafes, bars, restaurants and much more.

Our home is a ground floor apartment, one of two in a terraced house. The sitting room has double glazed windows to keep out any road noise and big squishy sofas.

The bedroom houses a 5’ bed, with a ceiling fan to cool you should we have a hot summer (it does happen!). I empty a closet so you will have ample space for your wardrobe. It’s away from the road so no noise at all to disturb your sleep.

The bathroom has a rain shower over the tub and constant hot water.

The kitchen is my favourite place. I had it remodeled two years ago with a new glass ceiling to let in light and it’s a joy for me to cook in. Lots of gadgets to help you create a delicious dinner after a day sightseeing. There’s a dining table there too.

Leading from the kitchen is our little patch of (fake) grass where we love to relax with a glass of wine and a good book (there’s usually a good selection to chose from).

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Oxford Street, the City and Buckingham Palace are just a tube ride away. The nearest station is a 3min walk and you can be at, say, Baker Street about 10mins later.

Heathrow is about 30mins by taxi (£30). or you can go by Heathrow Express (usually no bargain) or from our local station with one change you can get there in about an hour using an Oyster Card for under £5 each.

Queens Park is a very hip area, lots of “yummy mummies”, young professionals and creative types alongside the typical London ethnic population. It’s like a mini Hampstead in that it has a villagey feel and, instead of the famous Heath, we have a beautiful park with tennis, putting green, woodland walk and open air gym.

All of London is easily accessible, but if you want to relax a bit we have plenty to entertain you within a 5min walk - pavement cafes, Starbucks, bars, sushi, a gallery, a great (but expensive) boutique, library and Gail’s bakery and a Sunday farmers market. There is a branch of M&S Food and Planet Organic (Iike Wholefoods) Is opening in a couple of weeks.

There is a bus right outside that can take you to a huge Sainsbury supermarket where you can also walk along the Grand Union Canal. A few minutes further and the bus will drop you right inside the immense Westfield White City Mall which has shops ranging from Prada to Primark, a big Japanese area, multiscreen movie theatre and so much more I haven’t even discovered it all.
