About our home

We are a family of 5 living in a contemporary house in Camden Town in London. We are both artists, I am a freelance Illustrator and my husband is a Set Designer.
We are close to the centre of town, only a 15 min trip by bus or underground. There are two major parks nearby (Hampstead Heath and Regents Park), many shops (particularly nice in the 'Primrose Hill' area), a farmer's market, large supermarkets, sports centre with a swimming pool less than 100yrds away, as well as the famous Camden Market only 5 min walk away from home.
The street is child friendly and quiet as it is a dead-end street, so little traffic goes trough.
Camden Town is situated close to King's Cross and St Pancras Station (Where the Eurostar arrives). It has excellent public transport to all areas in London. We are located in Zone 2.
In our house there are two double bedrooms (one en-suite), and two children's bedroom with each one single bed. All bedrooms are of reasonable sizes and well designed. The house is baby friendly, we have everything for little ones.
The living area is at the top of the house, in an open plan space. It has a large skylight so the room is always very light and comfortable to be in. There is a courtyard at the back of the house which is quite small but really lovely, as well as a terrace.
We have a cat, called 'Mouk' who lives in the house. He is exceptionally friendly, easy going and great company. Care for the cat can be organised if you plan to be away from the house for a day or two.
We have done exchanges in the past which have been great.
At present we are looking for an exchange to NY for one week at the end of october 2012.
