We are mainly looking to swap a home in London, preferably around Wimbledon, for a few months during spring 2014, but generally interested in home swapping/travelling the world for shorter term.
Our house is in a family friendly villa area, with nature on your doorstep. There trails through an endless forest,great for walking, bicycling, horse riding and cross-country skiing, there is a downhill ski slope 5min from the house (another two within 10min drive) Tennis court, football fields, two golf courses, fresh-water lakes and only 15 min from the sea. 5min drive from the historical and charming centre of Baerums Verk (buildt in 1610) with artscraft workshops, restaurants and shopping, 15min drive from Sandvika where Scandinavias largest shopping centre, beaches and cultural activities are to be found, and only 30min drive to Oslo town centre. Also, only 15min drive from Oslo International school at Bekkestua.
The house was built 7 years ago by the owner and is a very practical, modern and stylish house, high quality. High ceiling, panoramic windows, great view, oak floor, italian kitchen with all facilities (coffeemachine, etc)
It has a lovely garden, great for children (big trampoline, chickens, playhouse etc), with many nice spots (several verandas).
It's a great place for a family or for any nature lovers with a taste for Scandinavian style/design.
The neighbours are lovely and all people around here speak English.
