Super family house in London, 10mins Tube to central london, Great Britain

We have now competed 4 exhanges - beginning to feel like regulars!!
Really lovely large family home in a super neighbourhood just a few minutes on the tube from central London -  8 minson the  tube to The British Museum, 10 mins to Oxford/Piccadily Circus - so well located for sightseeing and transport. 

The house backs onto a nature reserve - 3 miles long, stretching from Finsbury Park to Highgate Woods, so you have the best of both worlds - a great London position  you can walk in nature literally one minute from the house. The road is a quiet residential and friendly street.

 The house is 186 sq m it has four double bedrooms and currently is set up to sleep 7 in four bedrooms.
 There is a fabulous kitchen, dining /family room across the back of the house, with a big deck outside that you can eat on, and a south facing garden, with a trampoline with enclosure for the kids or lively adults.
There is a PS4 with games, WIFI of course and the TV is internet linked so you can entertain yourself at home easily.
The bathroom is lovely too - hopefully the photos wil ldo it all justice. 
London has so much to offer - museums, art , parks and history at every turn, you can get trains direct to Cambridge from the local station, to Oxford and other great castles etc are easy to get to also by public transport if there isnt enough in London to keep you interested! 
We are in Zone two and the nearest station is Finsbury Park - on the Victoria and Piccadilly line - 2 stops to Kings Cross , 8 mins to Oxford Circus and Piccadilly.

About Our Family

We are mum- 52, an english teacher and two kids - 15yr old  Amelia and 11yr old Alf - we are all well behaved and well travelled.
We have done four very succesful exchanges so far and have joined Intevac in the hope of doing more! We love city breaks and nature but do like to be able to swim - we do love a pool or a beach, though a good river to swim in is always great. I can only go away in British school holidays. 
 We have two cats - I can arrange for them to be fed if you go away for a few days but London has tons to keep you interested
