We live in a traditional five bedroom colonial home that is on one acre and backs up to lovely woods. The downstairs has a fully updated kitchen with stainless steel KitchenAid appliances connected to a formal dining room, a charming sitting room/library, a family room with a 36inch TV (including Wii) where you can spend family time watching a movie or reading your favorite book. There are two fireplaces downstairs and a screened sun porch (also with fireplace) overlooking the beautiful garden to enjoy summer eveings. We also have a two car garage with a car for you to use (if a car swap is offered), many outdoor toys and a basketball court. The upstairs has five bedrooms one of which has been converted into a home office/study with high speed internet for you to use. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and there is an additional hallway bathroom for the other bedrooms to share. There is also a fully finished basement with sitting room/fireplace and bedroom/playroom (with many many toys for the kids). This is where we have our washer and dryer. We hope that you can make our home into your home for summer of 2011 or 2012.
We live in the beautiful coastal village of Scituate, Massachusetts which is located 20 miles south of Boston and 40 miles north of Cape Cod and surrounding islands. Our town has beautiful beaches, great restaurants and quaint shops. It is also known for its host of fun summer, family activities sponsored by the town. Our neighborhood is a wonderful mix of young couples with children and older couples who raised their families on this cul-de-sac. There is a lot of space between the house for privacy, but close enough to others to not feel isolated. The village is 1.8 miles by car or bike and parking for the beach (also 1.8 miles away) is only for Scituate residents and their guests, so you never have to worry about finding parking. The great city of Boston is accesible by car, local train or ferry and the islands of Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are a 45 minute drive away. For the really adventurous, New York City is a 3 1/2 hour drive south. Come and enjoy all that the South Shore of Boston has to offer!!!
We are Tim and Simone and we have been married for 18 wonderful years. We have three beautiful children (Annika-13, Annabel-10 and Alex-7). Tim is an airline pilot and Simone is a preschool teacher who also sells jewelry and home interior products. We love to travel and spend time as a family participating in sports or just relaxing together. Simone is orginally from Holland, so we spend part of our summer vacation there every year. Over the last four years we have exchanged homes in Heiloo and Schoorl and it has been a wonderful experience each time. We would love to exchange in the UK this summer to show our children something new during end of July and beginning of August for school holidays, but we are flexible. Please contact us, so we can get to know each other and organize a possible exchange.
