Our home

Hello, our home is spacious and light and the open-plan south facing living room incorporates a kitchen, a cosy seating area with wood burning stove and a dining area with a piano. The full wall of glass doors at the back of the house look out onto a large terrace and a garden full of flowers. It's a very peaceful place, with lots of sky and no-one overlooking us. Quite unusual for London! Our bedroom at the top of the house, with en-suite bathroom, has views all the way to the North Downs. We feel very proud of our work renovating the house and very lucky to live here.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 3. Victoria is a yoga teacher and filmmaker and Sean is a drama-doc director. We have a teenage daughter and a very friendly cat, Poppy. We enjoy cooking for friends, watching films and we love the outdoors. We have exchanged our home successfully before. As guests we are respectful of your space and we would expect you to be of ours. Above all, we enjoy exploring the world and so relish the opportunity to experience other neighborhoods and environments than our own. We like the ethos of sharing our home with others, as it seems more friendly than staying in a hotel. We have made new friends this way and hope to continue to do so.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is a stone's throw from the world-class theaters, museums and shopping of central London. The tube system is within easy walking distance. A quick bus or train ride brings you to the South Bank, Tate Modern, the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe and the best views of the Houses of Parliament. We live in a quiet locale on a hill, near the largest open air swimming pool in Europe - Tooting Lido - and Tooting Common, a green oasis where there are tennis courts, ponds and play areas for children. The community is safe and friendly and there are shops and cafes within a few minutes' walk. Nearer the tube station, we have restaurants from many different countries, including fantastic Lebanese and South Indian cooking.
