House in Greater London,Great Britain

 We are in a very good, popular location. We are in a quiet, safe, green suburb ; 5 minutes walk from the house there is Barn Hill, an extensive nature conservation area and country park to walk in. In the other direction we are 7 minutes walk from shops and public transport. It takes 25 minutes by tube ( metro) to get to central London.
London’s attractions are world-famous, so we will not list them here. We will provide information on any special interests.
Our house is large  but we only use 1 room as a bedroom; it is ideal for a couple( and if one of them plays the piano, even more ideal). There is a  bed in Linda's office on the ground floor, and this office has its own bathroom, so the house can sleep 3 people if necessary.
On the ground floor we have: a large lounge/dining room with a door to the  garden; a living room (TV); a kitchen+breakfast room ( electric cooker, 2 microwaves, washing machine) with door to the garden.; 2 offices ( Linda's office has a PC for your use) and a bathroom.
On the top floor we have: a large music room; bedroom ( double bed) and en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle.
Additionally on the top floor there are 2 rooms, bathroom and kitchen. These are occupied by our two tenants. They are quiet, considerate people; you will not share any facilities with them, apart from the front door!
We have been living in this house for 44 years, and love it. It is clean and comfortable, but we do not live a luxurious life.
