About our home

Our happy and relaxed home is in Alexandra Park, north London, near the shops, restaurants and pubs of Muswell Hill and Crouch End. Built in 1905 with beautiful period fireplace, tiling, ceilingwork etc and now furnished in a tasteful and contemporary style. We have a large, well equipped kitchen, dining room seating 8 and living room with large sofa and sofabed. Our garden is secluded and has a barbecue and table seating 8 for outdoor dining on warm summer evenings.

We are less than ten minutes' walk from both train and Underground stations, from where you can be at the Olympic park in 35 minutes or central London in 20 minutes. We're also close to Wembley for major sports events and concerts. You can have use of our family car, although the public transport links are very good.

Alexandra Park is a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood, sandwiched between two parks, one huge and with fantastic views over London. We're 15 minutes walk or a short drive to the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants of Muswell Hill and stylish Crouch End. A great base from which to explore London or to chill out after the rigours of a hectic day of sight-seeing.

The bedrooms are three doubles and one child's room with a small single bed. The sofabed in the living room can sleep another two. We're also well equipped for a baby, with cot, highchair and a plentiful supply of toys.

Our house is available during the Olympics but we would consider swaps at other times too.
