Harringay Green Lanes home swap

We had great swaps to Austria, the Isle of Wight and York and have also done successful house sits via this website in Devon and Somerset. Please see our swap reports.

Our home is a typical London Victorian terrace. We have a sunny kitchen/diner with doors opening onto a 45ft south facing garden with 3 fruit trees,swing seat and trampoline. There are plenty of toys/books/activities in the house to suit boys and girls - our boys have eclectic tastes!

We are a teacher and a builder/carpenter with 10 year old twin boys.

About the location

Harringay is a multi-cultural, bustling area but our street is really quiet and we have very friendly neighbours. We have lived here for many years. Green Lanes is 2 mins walk - it is a hub of the Turkish community full of great bakeries (one featured on the Great British Bake-Off!), cafes and restaurants. Excellent transport links to central London - 2 London Overground stations, buses and Manor House tube station on Piccadilly Line all within 10 min walk. Hampstead Heath 15 mins on the local overground train which also takes you swiftly and regularly to Camden, Kew and Richmond in one direction, Islington, Hackney and the Olympic Park in the other.
