House for rent


We’ve decided to move back to the UK for our children’s education so the house will be available for rent from December 2017. It’s 250sqm, 3 bedroom with a great garden and barbeque area.

Main attractions:

  • It’s very quiet at the end of a small road – yet only 20 minutes by car to the centre of Kyiv. No neighbours on three sides so you can do what you want – when you want.
  • The bus stops a hundred metres away and goes past Libidskaya Metro 10 minutes later.
  • This is a bespoke house with contemporary open-plan design built into the side of a hill overlooking the Dnieper. It’s different.
  • Log burning stove generally heats the whole house in winter but otherwise it has underfloor heating to lower floor and radiators to the top floor

Move in … and Goodbye!


Well, we did it. 361 days in total… Just short of 4 days before a year had passed since we started work ….. we moved in to our brand new house. There have been trials and tribulations along the way… but notably the best house-warming present of all was our twins: Astrid and David.

In between feeds Anya (who was the driving force throughout to get the builders moving) is sorting out the garden… and we are starting to unpack and begin our new life.

But, for now… It’s “Goodbye!”

This blog, like our “Mooxa” the Moskvitch … is parked.
