A cosy family home in London

Please note we have made an exchange for February half term, but are open to offers for August 2020. Unfortunately we are not available for exchanges in July.

Our 1911 family home is on a quiet, tree lined street - yet only a short commute into Central London. We promise you'll feel very at home here, especially if you have children.

Living room: Netflix, BBC iPlayer, digital TV box
Dining room: seats 6-10 comfortably. Toddler and high chairs available on request
Kitchen: gas stove, electric oven, washing machine, dryer, can use our kitchenware and spices
Bedrooms: 1 king sized bed; 1 double bed with ensuite; 1 kids room with single raised loft bed; 1 kids room with single bed; 1 very small spare room with fold out double bed
Bathrooms: 1 with bath and shower; 1 ensuite with shower
35 ft garden, newly upgraded, with lawn, outdoor seating and children's outdoor toys

The house is approximately 120 sq m over three floors.
We have everything for children: lots of toys from babies onwards, and practical things like travel cot, children's plates, cups and cutlery available on request.

Right at the end of our street:
* Lloyd Park - public park with playground, including swings, slides, sandpit, water fountain, outdoor gym equipment, ball courts, cafe and Museum of the Year William Morris Gallery
* Waltham Forest Feel Good Centre - public swimming pool, including toddler pool, gym, soft play, teen zone, climbing wall, extreme trampolines, classes, and urban spa

5 mins on bus to Walthamstow Central underground station (zone 3) or a pleasant 15 min walk. Quick lines to Central London (20 mins to Oxford Circus; also stops at Victoria, Kings Cross for Eurostar, Euston) and the City. We commute to London every day, it's very easy! You can get anywhere in central London easily (shops, theatres, museums, main tourist sites etc). We now have the night tube so can even stay out late on Friday or Saturday and still get home quickly and cheaply.

Our area is friendly, artsy, good community, multicultural, with lots of local shops, restaurants, cafes, a massive street market, cinema, parks.... Everything you might need is within walking distance.
