London for Los Angeles, end of 2018 home swap

Two bedroom Victorian "garden flat" in the N.East London neighbourhood of Walthamstow, also known as "Awesomestow"! Excellent transport links - v.close to the Blackhorse Road tube station on the Victoria underground line and St James Street overground line. Safe on-street parking too.

This has been my home for 14 years, I absolutely love the neighbourhood and it is renowned for its arts and crafts community. There are lots of beautiful parks and open spaces nearby.

Two double bedrooms, living room, bathroom, kitchen and garden with lawn and patio/deck for summertime fun. The flat has all mod cons which you're welcome to take full advantage of - washing machine, shower/bath tub, oven, microwave, kettle, fridge/freezer etc. etc.

About the location

There are excellent transport links nearby, and the London 2012 Olympic Stadium is a direct bus ride away (on the 158 bus), and central London is easily accessed via the Victoria line from the nearby tube stop at Blackhorse Road. East London (Liverpool St., Spitalfields and the super trendy areas of Shoreditch and Hoxton) are all easily reached by taking the overground train from St. James Street station.

Walthamstow Village is a great place to seek out one of the many restaurants or shops, and is just 10 minutes by bus (W12). Closer to home is the amazing Walthamstow Market, which is open daily and sells food, household goods, knik-knaks and many other things besides. Every Saturday you can eat at one of the International Food stalls, or visit on a Sunday for the Organic Farmers market.

Open spaces are plentiful nearby, with the Walthamstow Wetlands, Hackney Marshes, Tottenham Marshes and Lee Valley all great places to explore. There is also a private playing field directly behind the house, so no shortage of greenery!
