About our home

We have a fantastic 2 bedroom flat with a huge kitchen/dining space with an adjoining living room with sliding folding doors to a garden. There is one double bedroom with a king sized bed and the second bedroom is a kids room - with a toddler bed (160cm long) and a cot. There is also a sofa bed (double) in the dining room. The flat has been lovingly designed by my architect husband to high specifications. See photos.

We are a family of four. My husband is an architect and I am an equality and diversity specialist. We have two kids who will be aged 3 and just 1 at the time of the swap. We are ideally looking to swap with people who either themselves have young kids - or people who have a cot and high chair available. We will be in Berlin from 15 to 23 August 2013 (inclusive).

The flat is officially in Islington but right on the borders with the trendy Dalston (Hackney). Our street itself has a popular cafe and pub on the corner and we are 5 minutes from the Vortex Jazz club and a whole host of shops, bars restaurants and cafes. For the kids we have a children's playgroung 2 minutes from our door and there's a large park (Clissold) within a 15 minute walk.

Transport links: We are a 5 minute walk from Dalston Kingsland station with its direct links to Stratford to the east and Richmond and the famous Kew (Gardens) to the west. A little further (7mins) is Dalston Junction station with direct links to the city (Shoreditch) and further south as far as WestCroydon. We are also a 5 minute walk from Newington Green and the Kingsland Road both of which are bus hubs with a constant stream of buses taking you into the central London in 25 mins.

Languages spoken: fluent German & English and working Spanish
