Description

Harringay in North London has been our home for 18 months. We actually stumbled upon it as somewhere we'd like to live during a house exchange!

We wanted somewhere with energy, but also that was full of families, independent shops and great transport links, within London and beyond.

We found it here: from the Turkish restaurants - one of which was recently named #2 in London on Trip Advisor - to the arty coffee shops, 24 hour fruit and vegetable shops, and Finsbury Park (which only on moving here did I realise is actually a park, not just a tube station!); it's a lovely place to call home.

Our flat is a Victorian, ground floor conversion, with two bedrooms and a lovely garden on a quiet street with residents parking.

The double bedroom is South facing, with Victorian ceilings and is airy, bright and calm.

The second double is smaller, but with the same high ceilings, a king sized bed, and view onto the garden.

The area is known as having 'the best transport links outside of Zone 1', with Manor House on the Piccadilly line being our local tube station (15 minutes walk, taking you to Covent Garden and Kings Cross in less than 15 minutes ), Harringay Green Lanes on the overground which can connect you with Kew Gardens and South London, Harringay National Rail and three bus routes (two of which are 24 hour night bus routes) which take you as far afield as London Bridge, Trafalgar Square and Brick Lane, as well as excellent car and rail routes North into the countryside of Hertfordshire.

Extra Info

We're a couple in our early thirties, who have spent the last two years renovating our home in the Lake District and sharing it with others: friends, family and house exchangers! Now we are living in London, we would like to do the same here... In as much as living in the Lakes was a life changing experience, so is the energy and variety of London. We work hard to create homes that we adore coming back to, and which enable us to go forth and get to know the rest of the world we haven't met yet!

We have a low maintenance and personable cat; a significant element of our wish to exchange is to know that she can be happy at home in our absence.

We have now successfully completed our sixth exchange, and would be particularly interested in a longer (3 to six week) swap - in January 2015 - to somewhere outside the UK.
