Our home

We offer a bright and airy three-bedroom Suburban London Home, close to excellent transport links (bus, tube, overland trains) to central London and the Eurostar to Paris. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the second bedroom has bunk beds and the third bedroom has a twin bed. We also have a loft/office with spiral staircase with a futon sofa that folds out into an additional double bed. The living room is very cozy with a wide flat screen HD TV with full cable package and full Wii setup as well as a great stereo system. There is a separate dining room with a large dining table, and the kitchen has a breakfast table as well. We also have a lovely garden where we spend many happy hours in the summer at the picnic tables and bench. We have a weekly housekeeper and lovely neighbors. We also have two very sweet and independent cats who would ideally stay at home and be your temporary companions, but if necessary they can go elsewhere.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are Melissa and Tom, Leo, Rose and Toby - a family of five, Mother who is Californian (in the film business) and Father who is English. The children, 12, 10 and 6, are dual-citizens! The children are adventurous and interested in exploring and seeing new places, but are also very respectful of their surroundings and other people's belongings. We've stayed in many cottages around England whilst on holiday, so the children are well-versed in treating the host home with respect! We have lived in London for 9 years and can tell you all about exciting family adventures to have with our home as your base! We would love to arrange exchanges during the school half-terms and holidays, either week-long or short breaks around England and Wales, and in the summer holidays we are hoping to be in California for three weeks, but are open to offers for summer 2013. We are happy to exchange cars, and we would be happy to look after your pets too! We would love to have access to a pool/hiking/the beach in the summer! We are very responsible, respectful and clean and would take good care of your home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are close to Central London but far enough away to afford a very quiet, cozy neighborhood. We have a lovely playground round the corner and the house is on a very quiet cul-de-sac with little to no traffic. We are close to many good restaurants on the Stroud Green Road and to the quaint village of Crouch End, just up the hill, with loads of character, shopping and food. We are close to Finsbury Park with its duck/boat pond, tennis courts, walking/running trail, skateboard park and excellent playground. Also 5 minute walk from lovely overground train that is a 7-minute ride to Hampstead Heath, perfect for long walks/runs/afternoons exploring the heath, tea or lunch at Kenwood House. We're also just a 10-minute walk to the tube, which can whisk you into Central London, for days out at the Museums, Theatre, Music, Ballet, or walks along the Thames, to name a few of the many adventures available.
