Bright, quiet, leafy house in London home swap
Our house is a converted stable beside Dagenham Brook in Leyton, East London.
Its hard to believe that you are in London, as the large windows and juliet balcony overlook mature trees, and you are surrounded by light, leaves and birdsong. Large windows on three sides mean that the sun rotates around the house, filling it with light all day. It is a peaceful and special retreat in the heart of east London.
Fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with shower & bidet.
Sitting room with desk, sofa and (very, very) comfortable reclining chair for reading or looking at the birds.
Bedroom with a porthole window and double bed.
Underfloor heating on the ground floor, thermostat for the central heating and a pot belly stove in the sitting room.
About the location
Located within easy reach of all that London has to offer, regular (every 5 minutes) bus routes take you right into central London from a stop 3 minutes walk away. Underground (Victoria line) and overground easily accesible too.
Walk from the house to the Hackney Marshes, Walthamstow Marshes, Lea Valley park, or a quick bus or cycle to the ancient woodland of Epping Forest. Go boating on the Lea River or fishing at the Walthamstow Resevoirs. Take our bikes and explore the Lea Valley. Horse riding and ice hockey centres 10 mins away!
Close to Hackney, Clapton, Dalston and Walthamstow.
A bus ride will take you straight to the British Museum, National Gallery, Soho, Covent Garden, etc.
We are in London so there is plenty to do, but the location of our house does make it special, after a busy day around London you can come back home, sit by the brook and feel like the city is far behind you.
We don`t use a car but it is possible to park on the grounds if required.
