About our home

we are Mark and Lynda. Mark is an author and journalist and Lynda a teacher. We live in a Victorian terrace in buzzing Finsbury Park with our two children, Emma (11) and Sean (8). Our home has three spacious bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen/living room, two toilets, a shower, a separate bath, and a terrace off the kitchen with steps down to a private patio. Although we only moved here in 2014 we have already done a lot of work, including redecorating every room.
We are in the Finsbury Park area in heart of north London, an area of Islington with an incredible variety of cafes, bakeries, pubs and restaurants serving food from all over the world, and close to many green spaces (including Finsbury Park itself, Hampstead Heath and the wonderful Hackney Marshes) to give you space to breathe if the city becomes too frenetic.
We are just metres from Finsbury Park station, which like Heathrow Airport is on the Piccadilly Line as well as the Victoria Line. King’s Cross, the Eurostar terminal and the West End are all just a few minutes away and we have excellent overground train and bus services. You can even use of our car if you have one to swap - that's if you think you can cope with London traffic!
