2. My dream home

What would your dream home be like? Read some comments and then write your own comment below.

I have two different dream homes – one in the city and one in the countryside for relaxation. The town home must be a two-storey building with two living rooms and one bathroom (separate bath and toilet) on the upper floor, kitchen and living room on the ground floor. I would like the village home to blend in with its surroundings. One bedroom must be close to a small stream nearby. Then I can hear the sound of water flowing when I sleep.

I imagine my dream home as a duplex-type with a glass wall on one side of it, which is on the bedrooms and living room side. It has a view of great mountains with a huge waterfall, and also it would be surrounded by a large landscaped area and a swimming pool. This is a very brief picture from my imagination, but I hope one day I can get it. Oh, it would be even more lovely if I could have a dog.

I'd like to live in a house. Right now I live in a small flat, but I would love to have more living space in the future. My dream home would have two bedrooms, a big living room, a big kitchen and a small garden so that I can grow some plants. A small and cosy home in the city, that's my dream home.

I'd like to live near the sea and to have a sea view. Imagine being able to hear the sea from your bed when you're going to sleep. That's my dream, to live so near to the beach that I could wake up and go for a swim, every day of the year! 

My dream home would be a small house somewhere in a mountain forest not too far from a city. It would be self-sufficient (though not off the grid), with a well, a woodstove, composting toilets and rainwater collection. There'd be trees and a river nearby, though not too close (to avoid flooding!), as well as space for a garden and small orchard.

We want to hear from you!

My dream house is large house consisting of two floors.

The first floor, has a spacious kitchen with a lot of different and varied kitchen tools, large reception hall and big living room.

The second floor, has bedrooms and they must be spacious and large.

Each room has two parts inside it, one for study and the other for clothes and private bathroom.

The house must be surrounded by a large green garden with different types and shapes of trees and fruits, also it contains a lot of colorful flowers and roses.

I'd like to live in a house. My dream home would be comfortable, modern, and cozy. It would have two bedrooms, a large living room, a dining room, a spacious kitchen, and two bathrooms. Ideally, I'd like to live by the sea, so I could swim there everyday.

My dream home is a house, with a big, flat living room with a large glass window, so a good view of nature is also necessary. And I do not need too many rooms, even just one bedroom is enough,  and yeah the kitchen, I want it open and modern with a big operating table, so during the preparation, I can cooperate with my friends or chat with them. And yeah, a separate reading room is also necessary, not only for work, but also for reading or gaming. And also a partner is a good choice. And until now it looks a bit simple, though I want to live in a house designed by myself, it feels a bit too simple to show my proficiency.

My dream house is a cosy and medium place, where I can make a lot of parties with my friends. There will have a living room, maybe three bedrooms and bathrooms too, with a library , a cinema and a kitchen in the garden. I will live with my pets and my future family. Maybe I will have a beautiful view from all the city.

I´d like to live in a flat located in the city center wherever I can go to coffe shops or libraries near there, something like mexico city, or maybe I'd like to live in japan in the countryside around many trees and plants and maybe a large lake.

But I rather the idea of living in Mexico City because people there is always friendly and alike to me, I'd go to the tianguis every sunday and drinking some beverages with my closest friends and family. Also I´d like to live there because I enjoy the idea of having museums and arquitecture design for nature and walters.

However, inside my flate It will have hipster's vibes but at the same time I'd like to has serious vibes, about the space sincerly is not to necessary that has much space, just the enough for me and the future cat I'll have jajajaja

My dream house would be a detached house in the countryside surrounded by mountains. There could be a lake nearby. There are a spacious living room with fitted kitchen, one bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, and 3 bedrooms, another bathroom on the first floor. The garden around the house would be large, where specially our dog has enough room for her. I would like to have a glass winter garden with beautiful view of lake surrounded by mountains.

Hi, I'd like living in the future in a small house with a nice landscape, I love to see mountains, so I'd love to live near them. Greetings, everyone

Submitted by Jubys on Wed, 05/06/2024 - 21:41


So my dream home would be far from the cities, like a house in the mountains. It would be a big house with only two bedroons, one for me and another one for a guest, a small kitchen a bathroom and a big yard. I'd like a fireplace in the living room with a protection in it(of course) because the house would be made of wood. I also would like a big dog, in order to not stay alone.

My dream house must contain only the necessary (books), and not be very huge (because who is going to clean it?). I imagine a glass wall with a view of the natural landscape following the course of the sun, on the top of a tourist mountain with snow, river or lake or in the best case thermal waters and forests in the surroundings.

Greetings and hugs.

My dream home, I wanna a small hause but whit a really large garden with some trees and flowers, and I'd like to have a big bedroom and a big living room.

Yes this is also my dream, I currently am living in a small house, but the garden and the backyard are very little and I love plants, I don't care about a big bedroom, mine has the right size, but my dream is a big living room, because I can invite for dinner only few people, and I wish a comfortable space with a big dinner table

My dream home is really beautiful. I would love to live in a big, bright, elite and comfortable house. It would have 5 bedrooms out of which 3 would be ensuite and also 2 separate toilets. There would be a big kitchen, 2 separate living rooms, a separate dining room, a beautiful garden with flowers and children's activity area. My children's room would have a slide in it which ends up in the garden. Whenever they wants to go to garden, they can just slide into garden. My dream home couldn't be complete without an indoor swimming pool.

My home will be surrounded by lovely beautiful mountains and water streams.

My  dream  home  is   somewhere  where is   always  the   same warm  weather, without  bothering  cold  or heat:-) I would live  alone , and it would be  comfortable  and  cosy with  all neccessary staff of  course,   surrounding   with beautiful nature. I have still  mountain view  from the  house and it is beautiful. 

Hi Mira-nda,

Yes, I know what you mean about having a stable temperature. In my home it can be pretty cold in winter, but hard to stay cool in summer! How is the weather where you live?


LearnEnglish team

Hello! Thanks for replying!  We have four seasons in Georgia . The weather is usual regarding to season,  not very extreme maybe, at least where I live,  though I do not like winter  coldness ;-). However , each season is beautiful of course, as well snow:-)
