Stylish London home with fabulous views

3/4 bedroom family home which enjoys stunning views of the city and is located in a leafy, but cosmopolitan area of London. We have a family friendly deck & garden. The loft master bedroom has a huge picture window with views you'll never tire of. The second bedroom has a single bed that can be converted to a full size double, and the third has a small double bed. There is also a small room off the living room at garden level that accommodates a small double sofa bed. The kitchen is modern with all appliances and folding doors that open onto the deck with seating for 8 people and there's a small utility room with washer/dryer and freezer.
The living room with TV/DVD, PS4 and Tivo is at garden level with folding doors that open onto the garden. There is also an open plan living/dining space off the kitchen with an open fireplace and additional sofas.
Muswell Hill is a family-friendly area and has wonderful green spaces despite being only 45 minutes from the West End. We have a cinema, shops and family restaurants within 5 mins walking distance from the house. It is a 30 second walk into Alexandra Park, and 5 mins walk to the palace with its ice rink, boating pond, playground and Go Ape (https://goape.co.uk/alexandra-palace). If you want to explore all that London has to offer then return to somewhere tranquil at the end of the day, this is the place for you.
We are also well-placed to visit attractions outside of London including Warner Bros Studios (home of the Harry Potter tour - wbstudiotour.co.uk), and a short train ride away from the historic Hatfield House (home to Queen Elizabeth I - hatfield-house.co.uk).
Please note, we have a low-maintenance cat who lets herself in and out and just needs dry biscuits and fresh water daily... and maybe a lap to sit on if she's feeling sociable!
Our nearest airports are (in order of distance) Luton, Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick, but we regularly fly from all four as Gatwick often has cheaper flights.
Please note that we CAN ONLY SWAP IN UK SCHOOL HOLIDAYS as this is our family home. Please see availability calendar for relevant dates.

Lifestyle

We're new to this site but have been home swapping for ten years and have made some great friends and explored some wonderful destinations along the way including the US, Italy, Spain, Barbados and lots of beautiful UK destinations. Can supply reviews/references if required.
We like relaxing on holidays but are also up for some adventures, e.g. Horse riding, white water rafting, mountain biking.
