Our home

Built in 1791,our Grade 'A' listed Georgian apartment is very spacious and elegant. It still retains many original features including cornice work and wall panelling. The accommodation consists of a large Drawing Room with windows on 2 sides, 1 of which is a large bay window, a large Georgian fireplace with 'stove style' fire and good quality funiture, including a writing desk & bureau. There is a very large kitchen with equally large dining area. It is fully equipped with modern appliances including range style cooker and larder fridge/freezer. There are 3 double bedrooms, 2 of which have their own en suite and there is also a large family bathroom. The apartment benefits from TVs in all rooms(digital channels)and internet access. All furnishings are of a very good quality and the apartment is very tastefully decorated.You can view it in more detail on my website

Property features

Who we are

  1. Our family consists of myself, Liz(46), my husband Stuart(44) and our 3 children, Michael, 17-almost 18! (who may or may not travel with us), our daughter, Holly,15 and our other son, Christopher,13. We have not exchanged before, but are very keen to give it a try. The home we are exchanging is our 2nd home which is a self catering apartment, which I manage. It therefore would not need to be a simultaneous exchange. My husband sells professional hairdressing products, a business which his grandfather started in 1934. Our eldest son is taking a 'gap year' before commencing an engineering degree at Edinburgh University. Our daughter is still at school & is due to sit her Standard Grade exams in May '07. Our 13 year old is also at school and a very keen rugby player (my husband coaches)
    All my children are very musical and play a variety of instruments. We would be very respectful of other people's property & would treat your home the same way that we would want you to treat ours.
