Clapton, Hackney home swap

Our Victorian end-of-terrace is in a vibrant, diverse part of London. It has a recently refurbed, very large, glass-roofed kitchen which is bathed in light & opens out onto a small sunny garden with a play house, table and chairs and fire pit. Downstairs there is also a shower room (with toilet), a laundry room, a study (with a double sofa bed) and a comfy lounge which is home to plenty of instruments, including a piano.

The main bathroom is on the first floor (along with a separate toilet), with a small single bedroom and a very large master bedroom which is sunny in the morning. On the second floor there is another large kids room with a folding pool table and a drum kit, and a smaller single room.

About the location

The neighbourhood of Clapton is our "village"- with cafes on the corner, pop up galleries & shops, & a fabulous pub one block up. It's 10mins walk to the canal, nature reserve and Hackney Marshes, 20mins to the new Olympic Park. Community arts venue, cinema, ice skating, theatre, horse riding all easily accessible. A vibrant street market is one block away every Sunday.

The Overground station (5 minutes walk) means we're 20mins by train away from central London (Euston) and buses run 24/7. It's totally the best bit of London!
