Model Answer:

Everybody has his or her own idea about a perfect or ideal home to live in, just like I have my own. So, I am certainly glad to have an opportunity here to talk about my own ideal home. Of course, many others might not accept it as an ideal home, but, then it is a personal preference and I believe our personal preferences vary to a great extent.

By the way, my dream home would preferably be located by an ocean or a big lake, in a secluded area, with a picture-perfect view and plenty of trees around it. It should be a modern home with all the conveniences, a huge swimming pool on a large ground, and has at least 2 car garages with automatic doors and chandeliers. My ideal home should also have at least five or six spacious bedrooms, with one working as an office and one as a “gymnastic” room. All the rooms must have large windows, along with their private balconies, so that enough sun and fresh air can enter my home as long as they are available.

Covering an area of about 2500 square feet, my ideal home should also definitely have large walk-in closets to help me arrange all of my clothes, a spacious and well-equipped kitchen with side by side washer and dryer in a master closet. The bathrooms are ample which may include sunken spa tubs and elegant-looking bidets. Finally, the wall paintings of the home interior should perfectly match with the colours of all the furniture in a contrasting manner while the furniture themselves also look “uniform” in their looks, finishes and styles.

It would be an ideal home for me to live in because I can fill my little lunge with all the fresh air, available in the atmosphere of this earth, to help me live a healthy life. Besides, I could live a very peaceful life there, far away from the crowd and noise of other people and vehicles. Besides, this home would allow me ample space to move freely without having to worry about hitting some furniture or household objects on the way.
