A quirky, 3-storey, 1827 house with garden in the centre of Greenwich, one of the most beautiful, historic parts of London, set on the river Thames. This park-side area is one of the oldest and most attractive in Greenwich (and London as a whole), surrounded by houses dated from the 1640s to the 1850s, four Victorian-era pubs within two minutes' walk, plus several traditional shops. The house itself has a roomy, airy living room, cosy dining room, and three bedrooms - double, single, and two singles (bunk beds, shown in the photo, on the basement floor). Modern kitchen, plus one bathroom, with antique bath, and shower over the bath.
This is an old, Georgian house - it's on the Historic Register, the ground floor has 200-year old, wide floorboards, with all the original old fireplaces (which we're hoping you won't need). We have just managed to extend our garden, which now generous by London standards (but maybe not by Californian standards), with plenty of room to eat outside. And we also have plenty of friends nearby, who will advise you of good places to check out.
In addition, we are just off one of London's best small streets for shopping, with an excellent butcher, grocer, and cheese shop. Just round the corner, we also have an excellent small cinema (with a good bar).
All normal amenities: wifi, cable, washer, fridge/freezer, dishwasher etc, plus a Yamaha U3 upright piano and possibly other instruments by arrangement! (Small) TV, good hi fi, excellent Rancilio coffee machine. Please feel free to message with any queries. We have very fast broadband, a lot of CDs and DVDs, many books - including a good selection of guides to London... and, in case you have teenagers, a PS4.
We are a small family, used to exchanging and staying in nice locations with antiques and other items; our house is family-friendly, but we'd only want to exchange with people who appreciate staying in an old house. Although the main areas are light and airy, not all the walls are at 90 degrees to one another, and the stairs between floors are winding and steep compared to modern houses, tricky for people with restricted mobility (although access to the ground floor and basement is pretty good). This place is not like a modern hotel with a power shower.
We love exchanging and have always enjoyed helping families who stay in our house find special, memorable places. We moved to homelink.com from homeexchange.com, with whom we've done at least 16 exchanges, across the world.
