Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Hello, and thank your for viewing our details.

LOCATION
Our home is located down a private road in a small rural village in the Essex countryside which is on the east side of London. For us it has always provided the perfect balance between living in the country and working / socialising in London.
The village has its own train station with direct links to London Liverpool Street station & Stratford in East London, home of the London 2012 Olympic Park and huge Westfield shopping complex. Both stations are major interchanges for all London has to offer e.g. Sightseeing & shopping, the history & culture.

The single track railway line runs along the bottom of our large garden where trains pass into / out of the station just a few minutes walk away. Consequently this makes the use of public transport by train very convenient.
