Our home

A stylish Victorian terrace house, situated in a leafy suburb 3.5 miles from central London. The property backs on to beautiful Ruskin Park, which has tennis, basketball and soccer courts, children’s play area, paddling pool, café and bandstand. It is popular with families, dog walkers and joggers. The top of the park offers spectacular views of central London including The London Eye, The Shard and the City.
Our house underwent major renovation five years ago and combines traditional and contemporary features. The kitchen and dining area boast spacious family living accommodation and looks directly onto Ruskin Park.
A big table seats eight comfortably. During the winter months a wood burning stove provides warmth. A huge floor to ceiling window overlooks a spacious garden that includes trampoline, barbecue and seating area with table and chairs and an astro-turf lawn.
The double doors open out to let light and warmth flood into the house. The kitchen and living room are separated by double doors, which can be opened out to create a large living space.
The ground floor has wooden flooring throughout and the first floor is carpeted. Upstairs there is a bathroom, including two washbasins, shower and bath and three bedrooms – two doubles and one single, suitable for a child or teenager.

Who we are

  1. We are both teachers. I teach at a local secondary school where our children, aged 13 and 17 are both students. My wife teaches at a local primary school.
    As a family we love to travel, and in the past five years have visited California, New England, Australia, Italy, France and Spain. Following a successful exchange in San Francisco in Summer we would like to travel a little closer to home in 2014, and are looking for an exchange in Europe.
