DH and I were talking about this as we’re in the midst of a property headache - buying something practical but not beautiful.
When we talked about what WOULD be our ideal home, neither of us quite knew what it would be. A chocolate box cottage would be lovely, but we live in a big city. And I like the practicality of somewhere eco friendly, and I’m really keen on big windows and natural light.
So I’d love to know... what’s everyone else’s dream home?
If money was no object, I'd live in a new built McMansion. It'd have stunning period proportions (12ft ceilings etc), I'd kit it out with impressive cornicing, fireplaces, marble floors, bespoke cabinetry, lots of original artwork etc. Underneath, the technology would be super modern with all the latest inventions.
I would keep it a manageable size, though. Perhaps 600-700sq m set in 1 acre. That way, I could have staff come 2 days a week or so rather than have strangers under my roof every day.
