House in London, Great Britain

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE ORGANISED OUR SPRING AND SUMMER 2017 EXCHANGES AND ARE CURRENTLY NOT LOOKING FOR AN EXCHANGE UNTIL XMAS 2017 OR SPRING 2018.

We live in London in a large and comfortable late Victorian house from the beginning of the 20th century. Since we moved into the house in 2004, we have completely refurbished the inside of the house, as well as the front and back gardens. We worked with local architects to design the house in a modern (but not oppressively minimalist) style. We have put in a lot of effort into designing and refurbishing the house, and we hope that you will like it. The house was repainted in 2010. All rooms are either overlooking the garden or the old stone church which is directly across the street. The house (about 250 m2) is composed of:

Basement: Wine cellar

Ground floor:

Open space kitchen with all appliances (Neff, Liebherr and Miele), connected with the dining room. A breakfast bar and large dining room table. Double glass doors open onto a paved terrace and garden, where we have our meals (when the London weather permits it!)
Living room with TV and sofa
WC

First floor:

Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, plenty of cupboards and a king-size bed
Study, with a couch which converts into a pull-out bed
Our daughters’ bedroom with a bed and a pull-out bed
WC

Second floor

Guest bedroom with a double bed and the second TV
Our son’s bedroom with a queen-size bed
Laundry room with washer and dryer
Master bathroom

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Heathrow - 30km/20 miles

Our house is located on a quiet, leafy street (photos above were taken from the master bedroom) in a beautiful part of town, called Highgate. This is a very popular residential area for families with children as it has lots of parks and playgrounds, but is very close to the center of London. Trips on the underground line to Oxford Street (a popular shopping area) take about 20 minutes. Nearest underground station is Highgate, which is about 10 minutes walk away (see the underground map for details: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/maps).

About Our Family

We are traveling with our two children, a fourteen year old boy and a nine-year old girl.

If you are looking for something different, we can also offer our holiday home in exchange. It is a riverside cottage on the Danube in Serbia: https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/7551822
