Our home

Our four bedroom home is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood between the Underground station of Hornchurch and the town centre. The tube station is about 6 minutes walk with trains straight into London. The town, about 6 minutes walk away has shops, banks, cafes and restaurants. All bedrooms are upstairs, 2 doubles, 2 singles with a self-contained studio flat built over the garage with its own entrance to the street and access through the rear bedroom. There is a family sized main bathroom.

Downstairs, there is a lounge, home office, dining area leading to the kitchen; a laundry room and a downstairs bathroom. The living areas are spacious and comfortable. The main lounge has a flat screen 40” TV. The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, two ovens and a combined gas/electric cooktop. Our home has central heating and instantly available hot water supplied from the boiler.

We have a garage and the garden contains a shed, glasshouse and a decking area, with table and chairs for eating outside.

Who we are

  1. We are John and Julie, a married couple with two grown up daughters and two grand children. We are both professionals (Chartered Surveyor and Primary School Teacher) and enjoy travelling when able to get away. Our daughter lives nearby and would be able to help out if required.

    We have spent a long time renovating our property and have added two extensions. We take care of our home and possessions and keep our house clean, we shall of course, take great care of yours too!

    We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try it. My husband has two brothers living in Sydney; we lived in Australia for nearly 5 years until last year and are keen to visit again, for around 4-6 weeks from Mid July 2011.
