But, we (mostly I) like to dream, and we have started putting together pieces of what our ‘dream home’ would look like… We both have different wants and ideas, but for right now, this is mine:
I would love a 3-storey, 4-bedroom house, close to the ocean. It doesn’t have to be huge but it would be bright and airy.
The walk-in closet would be the size of a small room, perfectly organized with plenty of drawers, shelves and hanging space.
The master en-suite would be perfect: double sinks, a claw-foot tub and an oversized shower with jetted sprays in the wall. I love claw-foot tubs – I think they are absolutely gorgeous, and
I’ve been dying to have one forever, but I think that if we have a hot tub, I’ll finally be able to sell AMP on the claw-foot tub idea.
Down the stairs, you reach the three large-size rooms. Two are bedrooms, one perhaps a child’s room, the other a guest room. The other two are an office for AMP and a library room. The library room has wood floors, with wall-to-wall bookshelves, except for one corner of the room that features a small table with a marble chess set and two chairs.
There is one bathroom on this floor, a simple 3-piece bath, and the laundry room is also found on this floor, with washer and dryer, laundry sink and plenty of cupboard space for storage.
Down another set of steps, and you’ve reached the main floor, where you’ll find the living spaces… The kitchen will be gorgeous with granite countertops and dark wood cabinets. There will be cupboard space galore, plus a walk-in-pantry and an oversized island with bar sink. At one end will be four bar stools for breakfast or quick lunches.
Down a couple of steps from the kitchen you’d find the family room, with another television, comfy couches, and shelves storing DVDs, toys, etc. Completely unlike the living room, this is where the majority of television watching, video game playing, etc, will be done.
I haven’t quite decided what kind of style house I’d like… I love Victorians, but that seems out of place near the beach.. But I’d be happy with a simple farm house look, like this one…I would love a wrap-around front porch.
Not that I’ll ever be able to afford a house like the one I’ve described, but that’s the beauty of it being a ‘dream house’… So I can continue to dream!
