Lovely 5 Bed home swap in London, England

We have a lovely old house in one of London's most up-and-coming areas. It has high ceilings, lots of entertaining space, a sunny garden, plenty of bedrooms and a dedicated office.

The house is situated in a very quiet, tree lined street in Dalston, just North of the financial district. It is 2000 square foot, 4/5 bedrooms with a West-facing garden. The floorplan gives a general sense of the place. Since it was done we have added an office/bedroom behind the bathroom on the first floor and a shower room on the second floor.

As for the local area, there is a great gastropub on the corner of our road with outside seating. It's 5 minutes walk to London Fields park, which is lovely in the summer. It has a cricket pitch and a recently renovated Victorian lido (heated outdoor swimming pool). A walk through the park brings you to Broadway Market, which is heaving with food and fashion stalls on a Saturday and has more excellent pubs and restaurants, including an Argentinian place which serves mouth-watering Argentinian steak.

Dalston is minutes away from the very fashionable Hoxton and Shoreditch on the new East London Line. Islington, which has good shopping and more restaurants, is a stone's throw to the West. The area is close to central London, giving the option of cycling in along the canal (bikes included).

We think our place would be great for anyone interested in spending time in London this summer. We look after it and would do the same for your place.
