Avondale home swap

****Currently looking to swap summer 2016 - UK or Europe rural / beach *****

Our home is an Edwardian 3 bedroom terrace in Harringay, North London combining original features with modern design.

We live in a quiet friendly street, minutes away from a bustling high road with a fantastic local gastro pub, Turkish, Italian and Eastern European restaurants and all the fresh veg you could possibly wish to buy. We also have, independent cafes and organic shops on our doorstep so there is a huge variety to choose from if you want local entertainment. Transport links to central London are extremely good, with two local tube stations (Manor House zone 2 and Turnpike Lane), 3 bus routes to different parts of central London and two overground stations. The City is 20 minutes away by train, Covent Garden and Leicester Square are only 35 minutes away, and it is about 45 minutes to all the museums in Kensington. Alternatively, if you want peace and tranquility, historic Hampstead Heath is a short train ride away.

We have worked hard over the last few years, extending our house to make a family home that is both cosy and spacious. The newly fitted kitchen has solid wood (wenge) worktops, a range cooker and sliding doors, opening up the entire back of the house to the garden; fantastic for barbeques. Our living room also has an open fire if you will be staying when it is colder. We have both a large family bathroom and an en suite to the master bedroom which is on a separate floor, allowing grown-ups to be hidden away and enjoy a lie-in without being disturbed. Our two children have a room each, one of which is the size of a master bedroom and is a great playroom, filled with toys. You will also be able to use our Wifi, our favourite kitchen gadgets, bread maker and juicer and play with our Wii on rainy days.

We are surrounded by good local parks, all have tennis courts, recently renovated playgrounds and there are several leisure centres nearby. We have put together a detailed guide to the surrounding area, so you will know where to find all you need as well as enjoy our favourite local trips if you want ideas. A local website www.harringayonline.com will also keep you up to date on hyperlocal events and
give you a feel for the area.

We are looking for house swaps during British School Holidays (Half Terms, Easter and Summer) and would be interested in homes in the UK or in Europe.
