5 bedroom victorian house in St Albans, England home swap

A cute 5 bedroom Victorian semi-detached house arranged over three floors, with a walled garden complete with climbing frame. House comprises of 5 bedrooms: 1-double and 4; large single bedrooms (one of which can also be a double bed, 1 of which has children's high sleeper bed (up ladders!), 2 reception rooms (1 of which doubles as the games room so has x-box and wii available), a large modern open plan kitchen/diner and separate utility area; 2 small but perfectly formed bath and shower rooms plus addition downstairs WC.

About the location

Situated in the historic Roman city of St Albans, with its twice weekly vibrant local market. Many amenities including great pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as a newly restored beautiful art deco cinema - providing the ultimate movie going experience. We also have a brand new leisure complex with pool, climbing wall etc. and a handful of local museums. There is plenty of parklife with one of the most beautiful parks at the end of the road with tennis courts and café plus a children's playground and sandpit.
The main train station is about an 8 minute walk from us giving easy access to London with very regular trains taking 20 mins to Kings Cross/St Pancras giving you the beauty of the capital on the doorstep and all that London has to offer with the Hertfordshire countryside also within easy reach - with many great walks.
Just 8 miles away is the Warner Bros Studio Tour - The Harry Potter Experience, which is well worth a visit. St Albans has excellent transport links meaning places such as LEGOLAND (Windsor) and theme parks such as Thorpe Park, Chessington and Gulliversland are within driving distance for a day out, as are places such as Oxford and Cambridge.
It is only 12 mins by train to Luton Airport, 20 mins to St Pancras International (Eurostar links to Paris and Brussels - as a regular commuter to Brussels with my work I can vouch for this as an excellent service), 1 hour 40 direct to Brighton for a day at the seaside (stops at Gatwick Airport 1hr).
We would also be happy to discuss providing use of our car - currently a Ford S-Max (manual).
