Large Seaside Houseclose to the sea, city, countryside, airport and London! home swap

We moved to our home 3 years ago. It is a very large traditional house that we have been working hard to improve (for example: a loft conversion, a rear extension, two sun terraces in the rear garden, redecorated throughout). We live a 5 minute walk from the sea (perfect for walking, cycling, windsurfing, sailing), charming local shops and great local parks.

Furthermore, we live close to major transport links that can take you into heart of the thriving centre of Brighton in 10 minutes and we are a 10 minute walk from a mainline train station which can take you direct into the middle of London in just over an hour and to Gatwick International Airport in only 35 minutes.

We have very nearly completed the full renovation of our house. Our 60m back garden has been re-developed with two new large sun terraces, a huge 4m trampoline and BBQ area. As for the kitchen, it is need of renewal and not fitted to the same standard of the rest of the house. It does, however, have all the important features; fridges, freezers, dishwasher, microwave, hob, oven, kettle, toaster, etc.

About the location

We live in Hove, next to Brighton, which is an established residential seaside area. It boasts great shops, cafes, restaurants, sports activities and a beautiful seaside promenade. Just a five minute walk can take you to the sea. Here can find world class watersports, for example, 'Lagoon Watersports' ( offers a great variety of well priced short courses for: sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, wake-boarding, power-boating, yatching, etc, that can be booked in advance.

In addition, we are a 10 minute bus ride from central Brighton - a wonderfully vibrant, artistic and flamboyant city, which is full of world class restaurants, cinemas, theatres and museums. It is home to the amazing Royal Pavilion, world famous pier and many, many other attractions.

Moreover, the local surrounding 'South Downs' countryside area has been recently been declared a National Park of 'Outstanding Beauty' - great for both walking, cycling and delightful country pubs.
