  1. Small cottage with lots of bookshelves and comfy couches
    Airy rooms with big windows for maximum light and air
    Incredible deck with rocking chairs to sit and look at the beautiful view
    Close to the beach so I can wander aimlessly for miles and my husband can sail every afternoon
    Fabulous wild flower garden
    Sea shells and other finds from the beach decorating the house
    Family photographs on the walls
    Big open kitchen stocked with colorful fruits and vegetables


  2. I used to dream about a big house full of beautiful things like on HGTV, but now I would rather have a small, simple one for as long as my family are happy and stress free . With a big, expensive house comes huge financial responsibilities. I chose peace of mind and quality daily life. Great idea for a post. We live in a tough time, we need topics like these. Thank you.


  3. I like the Island Traveler’s reply!

    However if I were a very wealthy person, I’d probably be in the market for a house worth one Million Dollars up. I’d have lots of rooms to accomodate my children and grandchildren when they come to visit for a holiday. The house would of course be architect built and have solar heating. The plumbing would be done in a clever modern way so as to save water. I would have lovely outdoor spaces: Trees, a pool, space for the children to play ball games etc., terraces some shady,some in the sun.

    As it is in reality, we, that is my husband and I, live in a lovely three-bedroom villa with no mortgage on it. We have a little bit of outdoor space with lots of trees. As we are getting on in age, we think of moving into a retirement village where you may get help with maintenance, cleaning etc. if the need arises.


  4. My dream home is a three bedroom, a master bedroom with master bath on one side of the house and the other two rooms on the other side. A formal living room, a formal dining room, big family room open to the kitchen and the breakfast area, and a sunroom. On two acres of land. I thank my God everyday for my dream home. He gave me the opportunity to live in the house of my dream.

  5. Nothing very big. It’s a cottage house with 2-3 bedrooms. Small garden. Good space to organize, but nothing too much to keep too many things.


  6. Beach house
    Floor to ceiling windows
    Huge kitchen like the one’s you see on Food Network
    Movie theatre room (theatre seats, projector, u get it)
    Man cave (poker table, pool table, foosball, walk-in beer closet)

It would include over 10 acres of land with different sections for a childrens play area, beautiful gardens of roses and other english plants also a zen garden, greenhouse, lake which leads into my own private beach with a yacht and a speed boat.

Into the house as well as the bedrooms an bathrooms i would have 3 kids playrooms, 2 indoor pools, a teen hang out room, a girls hang out room and a boys hang out room. I would have an old style dining and lounge room and a modern lounge with a grand piano, i would have an adult and kids music room, a games room such as poker, a kids game room (board games + electronics) , a bowling alley, indoor tennis + basketball courts with a big sports hall, 2 gyms- 1 overlooking the hall, 2 cinemas, 2 librarys, book corner, a party room, a theatre, wine cellar, ice cream parlour, 50’s diner, homework room, 2 offices, a kids kitchen, bar, aquarium and shark room, pet room, dance studio, spa which has a private pool as well which the puplic can use at a price, living area, art gallery, locker room, a big posh dining room with a full glass wall, conferance room, a massive kitchen leading into the garden, a conservatary which had a view of the golf green, a family lounge, i would have a separate guest house with 2 master bedrooms and 1 single bedroom, kitchen/dining room, lounge and study and a bathroom, a random art conservatory, a flat type chill room/ bar, a glass mirrored lounge, a basement games room and yeah thats about it!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚


  8. wow,dreaming,i actually have another dream,but lets dream my dream house.must have at least 2 balconies,a private house,no neighbours please.a garden ,an underground room to put all the things i dont use regularly,a big livingroom,the kitchen must be super functional,longdrink bar looking,three bedrooms,with huge beds,hollywood style.a big bathroom with sauna…..


  9. I would like a home inspired by the style of ‘Falling Water’ by Frank Lloyd Wright with some of the whacky detailing of Frank Gehry. The home would have a central courtyard and multi-half levels. Possibly equating to 3-4 separate levels throughout the home. A feature throughout the home would be retractable curtain (full glass) walls. I envision the exterior of the home being either concrete (stamped for texture) or stucco.

    In addition I would like a fish tank that runs in “streams” under a transparent flooring with mood lighting as well as a wall tanks placed in multiple places throughout the home. In contrast to this deep looking floors, high ceilings would run throughout the home. Each bedroom accented by coughers and track lighting throughout.

    The home could be 5 bedroom + large studio + 4.5 baths. A large kitchen with island workstations and turreted dining area accented by skylights to allow natural light into the most important room of the home. The home would have an airy, open feeling throughout the large structure. I would want it positioned on a cliff-face, a hill peak, or over a waterfall similar to “Falling Water.” A garage would be positioned under the ground, beneath the home.


  10. I have a dream studio in Bredasdorp which I ‘m redecorating as I go along. Its very simple & straight forward. I like it because its near to several beaches with the most amazing sand dunes to do sandboarding. I can go exploring, snorkeling, watch the fishermen fishing or just walk along the beach looking at shells, rock formations, picking up pebbles or just to get windblown during winter.
    Its set in a quiet road up on a hill
    I find it to be very central for the activities which I enjoy doing like swimming, hiking, walking , mountainbiking, visiting museums and cultural places


  11. My dream house is a white and dark brown zen type clutter-free structure glass house. The doors and windows open to view the grass-filled lawn with flowers surrounding the area. Lots of sunshine peeps in to provide natural light. This will be constructed in a cool hilly place in a serene atmosphere.


  12. My dream house isn’t a mansion. it’s somewhat modest in size…but has tons of windows. overlooking water and… -house/
