Model Answer:

For some people, just having a home as a shelter is good enough. Then, there are people who want their home to be perfect. Now, it is the idea of a perfect home which gets me a bit confused because the idea of perfect home changes, and keeps changing in my head, depending on my mood. Nevertheless, I do have an idea of a perfect home inside my head which I am going to describe now.

I have always been an easy-going and laidback kind of person who has spent a very significant amount of time in a village. And, probably that’s why I have preferred to live in the countryside instead of a city environment. So, my ideal home would naturally be situated in the countryside, far away from the hectic lifestyle of a large city.

I am not really into a very large house, so I would prefer it to be a moderately large house which would have 3 bedrooms, one storeroom and one large sitting room. My ideal house shouldn’t be more than 1500 square feet, but it should have big windows on each side so that my house can get enough light and air from each direction. Besides, my ideal house would be surrounded by a small boundary, and inside the boundary, there will be a small garden of different kinds of flower plants and trees. I would also like a fountain inside my garden so that I can always hear the burbling sound of the water, coming out of my fountain, while my garden will nourish itself with the flowing fountain water.

Anyway, it would be my perfect home, mainly because it will have a touch of mother nature with a small garden inside it. Besides, it will allow me to listen to the chirping sounds of birds while they play in my garden. On top of that, I won’t really have to spend too much time to maintain this house since it would be a small house with a rather simple design. As I have already mentioned, I am a simple guy and I want my house to be simple also.
