Yesterday I watched a program called Luxury House in the Sun. This is a reality-type show where a wealthy couple are searching for a holiday home or a permanent residence in exotic climes.
The house hunter—a woman in her early twenties with a rich football-playing fiancé—said she’d know what she wanted when she saw it, but as the search continued we discovered she really wanted a large outdoor entertainment area with a pool and the property needed to be close or on the outskirts of a town (near to restaurants) with a modern open-plan interior.
Her hunt for the perfect home made me think about what was important to me in a house. This is what I came up with:
1. A large kitchen with a breakfast bar. It needs to be big enough for family and guests to get together for casual dining. A kitchen with enough room for me to cook at the same time as hubby.
2. A garden area for puppy to run around. The house needs to be in a location with good walking/biking opportunities and public transport.
3. An open plan style.
So what is important to you in your dream home?
- The bedrooms
- The kitchen
- The lounge
- The location
- The outdoor space
- The bathroom
- An office
- Something else
What are your must-haves? What is your favorite room in your existing home?
