“We had a wonderful stay in Sutapa and Michael's warm and welcoming home with our 2 young twins and my in laws too. Great to be within walking distance of the tube for access to all of London's sights whilst also able to relax in the garden or enjoy the fantastic local park - our children LOVED the zip wire and climbing frames - thanks for putting info in your welcome letter as we would not have found it otherwise! Brixton village was good fun with friendly restaurants and great café/patisserie close by. A beautiful home from home which was just what we wanted after travelling around the UK visiting family and excellent communication from our hosts both before and after the points swap. You are welcome to visit us in Dubai anytime. ”
“Brixton was the perfect spot to explore London. Only a handful of tube stations from Buckingham Palace and Westminster, it really is a vibrant neighbourhood, with a street market open all week, as well as many really good restaurants. The house is big and very convenient with 4 bedrooms and a large fully equipped kitchen. It was very easy to communicate with Sutapa before and even during our stay in her house. We strongly recommend this location to anyone looking to spend some time in London.”
“Sutapa and Michael's house is perfect for exploring London. It's a few minutes walk into the centre of Brixton, which is an exciting part of London with amazing markets, boutique shops and restaurants. Take the tube and you can be in central London within 15 minutes. The house is on a quiet street. It has been restored to reflect its era, but also incorporates all mod cons. It is spacious and beautifully appointed. It is well equipped with lovely outdoor space. We had a very relaxing week there. Michael and Sutapa were great hosts. They provided lots of information about the house and the local area and it was very easy to organise a swap with them. ”
“Lovely family - glad we could host and happy to welcome Sutapa’s family again. ”
Where is it?
Location: A grand Edwardian town house dating back to 1899, a 5-minute walk to the London underground (tube) network - the metropolitan line - with trains directly to central London in less than an hour. But equally, we are surrounded by the most glorious and unspoilt Buckinghamshire countryside (the Chiltern Hills). Country walks are numerous and easy to begin right from our front door. Our tree-lined street has some of the grandest and most beautiful houses in Chesham. Lowndes Park is a stone's throw away (visible from some of the bedroom windows) and there, you will find a children's park, a lake, an astro pitch for football and paths that lead straight onto the Chiltern walking trails.
The house: 5 bedrooms (2 king-size beds; 3 single beds), 3 bathrooms, 1 office, large (100m sq) open-plan kitchen/dining/TV room with underfloor heating throughout, sun-catching terrace for al fresco dining, 160m sq lawn to rear with apple trees and view of the hills beyond. Everything is brand new. The house was completely renovated over 9 months and completed in Feb/March 2018. The kitchen is fitted with luxurious appliances and is a cook's paradise. The main bathroom has a walk-in shower and freestanding bathtub; the second bathroom has a large shower cubicle. There is a toilet on the ground floor too. We have used a lot of colour in our home and worked hard to retain period features, e.g. 3-metre high ceilings; large sash windows; fireplaces and original doors. At the same time, it has been furnished to the highest standards with parquet flooring, Crittal (steel) doors and large sliding doors to the garden.
