Comfortable 4 bedroom house on the edge of London home swap

Our comfortable 1928 semi-detached home is furnished in contemporary style. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom, and a bathroom. Downstairs there is a spacious living/dining room, a second living room with a double sofa bed which can be used as a third double bedroom, a shower room, kitchen, utility room and garage. Our 90ft rear south-facing garden is attractive and sheltered. Immediately outside the house is a paved patio area with table, chairs & parasol, and a gas BBQ. Beyond that the garden has a semi-tropical appearance with paths leading through bamboos, palms & banana trees. Beyond that are shaded lawns, flower beds & reclining chairs. 4 adult bikes are available, a small child's bicycle and a scooter. Children's play equipment including a paddling pool and lawn games are also available. Our 4 seater BMW 1-Series coupe is available for exchange. We are fortunate to have friendly and helpful neighbours on both sides.

About the location

Our house is very conveniently located just 4 minutes walk from the nearest Tube station, with Central London attractions just 30 minutes away. Ruislip is a very pleasant suburb, with supermarkets, specialist shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes within 10 minutes walk. At the end of the High Street is the historic 22 acre Manor Farm site with its 13th century Great Barn, a library housed in the 16th century Little Barn, the remains of a motte-and-bailey fort and a duck pond. Miles of woods are 15 minutes walk away, with footpaths leading to the delightful Ruislip Lido: a large lake with walks, beaches, play facilities for children and a ride-on children's railway.
Further afield, the M25 motorway is less than 10 minutes drive; Windsor Castle is about 30 minutes by car, Henley-on-Thames 40 minutes, Oxford 1 hour, Cambridge 90 minutes, Stratford-on-Avon 2 hours. There are wonderful walks in the beautiful Chiltern Hills which have many historic villages and small towns.
