About our home

We bought and renovated our house four years ago and have felt lucky ever since to live in such a beautiful home in one of the most desireable neighbourhoods in London. This Victorian terrace dates from the 1880ies and is rich in period features with fire places in every room. Luckily they are not used to heat the house though as despite its long history our house has all the modern equipment one needs.

We live in an area called "between the Commons" with two large parks within a few minutes walk in both of which you will find a number of playgrounds, public tennis courts and traditional bowling greens. In the summer there are plenty of things going on here, including music festivals, summer fairs and sports events.

Popular Northcote Road with its lovely cafes and shops is just down the road and excellent public transport options using tube, bus and train mean no car is required to conveniently explore London and places further afield.
While this is a quiet and green area we are still very close to all the major sight of London - in terms of the famous tube map we are in Zone 2 of 6 (with 1 being the city centre).

When on holiday, we have always prefered renting appartments over staying in hotels and local neighbourhoods over tourist centres. We therefore think that home-swapping is the perfect way of arranging vacation. We are sure that you will love our home as a relaxing base in London.


More about us

  1. We're a family with three girls (7 and 1 year old twins)

  2. Seb's a management consultant and B is a writer

  3. We love discovering new places while not being tourists there; we are (ideally) looking for a 2 - 4 week swap in Europe for the summer and a 2 - 3 week swap to Cape Cape Town over Easter
