United Kingdom / London / South West London / Wimbledon
Spacious Home In West Wimbledon, London
Swap organised for summer 2016.
Not looking for any further swaps this year.
Our home has recently been totally refurbished. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three toilets, off-street parking for two cars, and a good size back garden including a barbecue and a wood-fired pizza oven.
It is set up for a family, but would obviously be fine for a couple (or two!).
On the top floor is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
On the middle floor is the main bathroom, a guest bedroom (with a double bed), a children's bedroom (with a bunk bed) and a baby bedroom (with a cot). There is also a trundle bed under the bunk bed, so it is possible to sleep seven, plus a baby.
The ground floor has a slightly more formal lounge at the front of the house, but we spend most of our time in the large open-plan kitchen-lounge-dining room area, which has doors that open onto the deck (and they are very seldom closed in the summer!). There is also a toilet on the ground floor.
We live in West Wimbledon, just two minutes' walk from Raynes Park railway station, from which you can get to central London in twenty minutes - and the trains run every five minutes.
There are loads of parks in the area, and we are just ten minutes' walk from Wimbledon Common, and just fifteen minutes' walk from the very pretty Wimbledon Village.
In three minutes you can be on the A3 and drive easily to attractions outside London.
It is a lovely, very family-friendly area. There are probably around ten restaurants within two minutes' walk of our house, and if you go just one stop on the train into central Wimbledon the figure would more likely be a hundred!
We are Matthew, Anna, Sophie (7), Kate (7) and Samuel (1).
We are originally from Melbourne, Australia, but we have lived in London for thirteen years now.
We work in politics (Matthew), and as a solicitor (Anna).
Hoping to go to Italy in summer 2015
