About our home

We have spent the last 10 years restoring this Edwardian (1910) house including developing the loft and hopefully creating a comfortable and appealing space. Our home has polished wood floors throughout and loads of original features including original fireplaces in five of the rooms. Our sons (14 and 16 at January 2018) are lovely, sensible boys and will treat your home with respect. We are a non smoking household.
We sit just minutes walk between three parks and our local station (Palmers Green) is an 8 minute walk, and from there just under 30 minutes on train into central London. Lots of local restaurants just a few minutes walk. We also have a 7 seater car which could be considered for a swap.
The house will comfortably take 8 people with existing bed set up. There are two bathrooms and an additional toilet on the ground floor. Two sitting rooms (one for kids) and a kitchen diner and a reasonably sized garden. Wifi throughout and Netflix. Lots of lovely neighbours. Great opportunity to see London and experience London living.

For the summer period 2018 we already have house guests in the loft. They are pretty much self contained though would use the kitchen for cooking (evening). This would mean the house itself is open to offers but would be for a family of five. The three bedrooms and one bathroom (all on the 2nd floor) have one king sized bedroom, one double bedroom and one single bedroom. Obviously the whole of the ground floor and gardens would be for your use.
