Our home

1. London Home:Our beautiful, lovingly restored 4 storey Victorian home is nestled "Between the Commons" - within 5 minutes walk of the wide open spaces of Wandsworth Common and Clapham Common in South West London.
We have 5 bedrooms/4 bathrooms - 3 double bedrooms (2 ensuite), a separate bathroom, a single bedroom (en suite) and a nursery room with a cot. We have an airbed which could accommodate more children. Our kitchen is spacious, bright and modern with a range cooker, American style fridge freezer and limestone tiled floor with underfloor heating. We have a lovely patio garden & a large lounge with a cosy fireplace.
We have two small children so the house is fully equipped for kids and there is a self-contained toy/playroom on the lower ground floor.
Our lovely cleaner could come by arrangement.

2. Tuscany: Nestled in the rolling hills of Tuscany is a magical place called Borgo di Vagli. A 14th century medieval Hamlet that captures the heart and soul of the Italian countryside. A private escape cloaked in serenity and embraced by natural beauty. Luxury accommodation, swimming pool and restaurant. A unique place for those with a passion for authentic experiences.

Who we are

  1. We are Hywel (Welsh) and Dominique (South African) and we have two small children. We travel quite a lot, so it is possible, if you are exchanging your second home, that we could do a non-simultaneous exchange.
    We have a fractional ownership of Borgo di Vagli in Tuscany - it really is our home in Italy (without all the hassle!) so let us know if that would be of interest to you (this could also be for simultaneous/non-simultaneous exchange).
    We have already booked to visit Cape Town for the last 2 weeks of December, so at the moment that is the exchange that we are looking for - so do get in touch if you fancy a magical white Christmas in London!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are within a few minutes walk of excellent public transport links - the Northern line from Clapham South which will take you to the City or West End & Central London in under half an hour. The overland train from Clapham Junction can take you further afield in the UK. We have a BMW X3 you could use if you wish.
If you prefer to stay local, we are within 5 minutes walk of the well-known and fashionable Northcote Road - with bars, restaurants and designer shops abundant. 10 minutes walk from our house is the best restaurant in London
The area we live in is one of the best in London, with everything right on your doorstep - it is very child-friendly, but also hopping with nightlife if that grabs your fancy.
