Large House in LONDON, Great Britain

Our house sleeps 8 altogether - we have 3 large bedrooms, two with king size beds and one with a double bed, and  there is also a futon in the office, which can sleep two more people. The house has a large kitchen / dining room and a large through sitting room, with TV, DVD player and piano. Our small garden faces south and you can eat your meals outside, in the sun or under the trees.
Our house is 7 minutes walk from Balham underground station, and you can get to Leicester Square and the centre of London in 20 minutes. We also have a train station, and the train takes 15 minutes to Victoria Station. You can easily go by train to Hampton Court, Kew Gardens, Windsor Castle and other attractions.
Balham is a lively area, with 3 commons (parks) in walking distance, and shops, cafes and bars. But our house is in a very quiet street, away from the main road.
We have exchanged houses for about 23 years, and our guests have always enjoyed living in our house in Balham.
We were both teachers, tied to school holidays but now we are retired we would be particularly interested in an off-season exchange, or somewhere unusual. We would love some winter sun this year.
