Lovely 3 Bed home swap in Leeds, England

Our home is a traditional 1930's British semi-detached house which we have recently refurbished from top to bottom. We have a large open plan living room, kitchen and dining area to the rear of the house which is light and airy and overlooks our large secluded garden, it offers a really pleasant living space (with stove, large cable TV, digital piano, and hi-speed wireless broadband) and is great for entertaining when family and friends visit. There are bi-folding doors that open out on to a patio area, perfect for breakfast on sunny mornings. There is also a cosy living room at the front of the house with an additional television set and a double sofa bed for guests. There is a toilet downstairs as well as a modern house bathroom and separate toilet on the first floor. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor and a small study. We have a loft extension which provides a further double bedroom with its own ensuite shower and toilet. Our garage has been converted into a gym with rowing machine and exercise bike, we can also provide 2 bicycles for use. Our home is comfortable and spacious in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.

We are situated in a leafy suburb of Leeds, only 5 minutes walk to Roundhay Park, one of the biggest city parks in Europe. It includes Tropical World, a firm favorite with children and adults alike. There are numerous pubs, cafes, restaurants and shops within easy walking distance and at least 5 golf courses to choose from in the vicinity. We are on a good bus route in to Leeds Town centre, which is only 15 minutes away. Although our house is just a few miles from the city centre, we are only a 5 minute drive to beautiful open countryside.
