About our home

Our home is situated on a very quiet wooded development of 20 houses. The plot extends to one acre, some of which is secluded from view behind the house. The house is fully air conditioned and alarmed. Upstairs there is a master suite, three further bedrooms and a second bathroom. On the ground floor there are two sitting rooms, a dining room, modern kitchen with granite countertops, sun room, office, laundry room and w.c. On the lower level there is a fully finished games/play room with door up to the garden. There is a heated swimming pool with separate hot tub, patio, deck and a fully enclosed trampoline. There is an air-conditioned mini-van (seats 7) and 6 bicycles of varying sizes. We would consider a rental agreement.


More about us

  1. We are an English family of four who relocated to the US in 2005 from Wimbledon, London. We have two very well behaved children aged 9 and 7, girl and boy respectively. Living here offers the best of both worlds with city life on the doorstep but with everything that a beautiful coastal rural location brings. We are available to swap in April 07 and June/July/August 07. We are new to house swapping but we rented our Wimbledon home for 6 consecutive Wimbledon tournaments to competing tennis players and found it to be a great mutually beneficial agreement without any hitches, primarily due to the high level of respect from both parties!

Where is it?


This is the perfect all-year-round destination. The house is perfectly located for the beautiful sandy beaches of Cape Cod (35 miles) as well as the unspoilt beaches of the South Shore (minutes away by car). The ski resorts of New England vary between 1 and 4 hours by car. The city of Boston is only 15 miles away by road and also accessible by commuter ferry (and by rail summer 2007). Hingham is a perfectly preserved example of a colonial coastal town with many historical sites and buildings, smart shops, restaurants and state parks. It is one of the oldest communities in the US, first settled in 1635.
