Our home

We are proud of our house in East London. We enjoy the local area with its diverse, family friendly community.

Our home has been recently renovated and is now more modern and spacious on the inside than the outside suggests. It is situated in the main street of the famous Walthamstow Village which attracts lots of visitors at the weekends in particular. It is only 20 minutes by tube to the centre of London, with all its famous attractions.

We have three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs), a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer. A small living room at the front of the house with a television as well as another open plan living room, dining room, kitchen at the back of the house. We are lucky enough to have a very large garden for a London home and we spend a lot of time in it during the summer months.

We have broadband internet and Sky TV as well as a movie projector and screen for cosy, family evenings in.

Who we are

  1. We are Ama and Tony. We are a married couple and are 49 and 53 years old. We have two children together aged 13 and 10. Both Tony and I are teachers in secondary schools so we look forward to getting away when we can. As a family, we love to draw, listen to music and watch movies together. We have done one house swap now and we are eager to repeat the experience.

    We would welcome an email exchange or face time conversations with anyone who we exchange with.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Walthamstow Village is a vibrant area of London and makes the most of its historical roots, with pretty shop fronts and a small local museum. It is a short distance to the centre of London, the Olympic Park in Stratford and the open spaces of Epping Forest and Lea Valley.

The bus and tube stations are only a short walk away where you can also find an array of supermarkets and other shops. However, if you don't fancy the walk (or short bus ride), our street and the immediate area is very vibrant, with a selection of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and boutique shops to choose from, where children are welcome. There is also a charming farmer's market each Saturday right opposite our house as well as a micro brewery around the corner.

A short walk away, there is a children's play park where your youngsters can run off steam.
