You know how it is, you get tired of looking at the same four walls, the same litter-strewn streets, the same ugly, pained faces..
And that’s when you just want to pack it all in, pack it all up, and just move somewhere sunny, bright and breezy.
Well, you’re in luck, my fat, ungrateful friend, for there’s a family over in San Francisco’s sunny, bright and breezy Bay Area who are keen to spend a summer in our rainy little town.
Local millionaire celebrity Laura Wood put the call-out for a former Greystones family of four keen to return home in summer 2020 for two or three weeks, and within about 48 hours, the deal was done.
Having swapped with local families several times before, the ex-Pat and ex-Mary are hoping for a Greystones home within walking distance to town, with 3+ bedrooms, 2+ bathrooms, a yard or garden, a modern(ish) kitchen, and a comfortable living room.
Here’s the lowdown on their San Fran pad…
