Model Answer:

I have visited the house of my company owner a few times, and I would be more than happy to describe his house since I can safely say that I have some good idea about it. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to talk about something on this interesting cue card topic.

The people around the CEO and owner of my company like to say that he is a person of great taste whether he is buying a luxury car or just wearing a hat. In other words, whatever he uses carries some true class and elegance with them, so naturally, the house, he lives in, is no exception.

The house, my big boss lives in, is conveniently located on the bank of a river. I am saying “conveniently” here because this house is located at such a perfect distance from the river that one can get the perfect and natural view of the river easily while also managing to enjoy the cool and gentle breeze from it.

Anyway, even though the house doesn’t sit on a large space, it looks rather big from inside because of a top-class architectural design. This house has a perfectly modern interior by any definition with its open floor plan and the windows that are stretching all the way from its floor to ceiling. This open floor plan allows this house to look really spacious and bright. Its living room is conveniently connected to areas such as the living room and kitchen. Painted with a rather relaxing slate colour, the interior of the house perfectly matches the colours of its furniture.

To conclude, there isn’t a single thing that I could dislike about this house. From the sizes and decoration of its rooms to choosing the ceramic tiles for its bathroom floors, everything looked to be so meticulously planned. Besides, the amount of natural light and air, which this house receives, is sure to energize and motivate people who would live there.
