- Describe a house or apartment that you would like to live in. You should say:
- Where this place was
- How this house or apartment looks like
- Who do you want to live with
- And explain why you want to live there
I’m satisfied with the place I’m living in now because in my mind, where the families aret where the home is. But I have seen a paradise-like home on TV some time ago and hope someday I can visit it.
It was a program to show the unique design of some architectures, one of them is an artisfs home in Yunnan where is famous for its scenic beauty. The lakeside house with French windows provides a panoramic view of the whole place, glistening water, blue sky and white floccus. I had lived in a coastal hotel and I can tell how peaceful and calm it would be facing such a view.
In addition to French windows, the amazing feature of the house is the glass wall which would become frosted by operating on a switch. So I was imagining that every morning, what wakes me up isn’t the clock but the sunshine. The other sides of the house are surrounded by woods. So, to some extent, it makes people living in totally exposed to the nature. Who wouldn’t indulge in this tranquility and forget the stress or burden from work or study! There are other eye-catching designs in the house, but the ones I mentioned are my favorite.
The reason makes it a dreamy home to me is the location and cost. It was built on an island, so as the only house, the owner doesn’t need to worry about the privacy but the following concern is the transport, and I heard the cost of renting it for one night is over 10,000 RMB. But in the future, I will definitely live there with my families, even for only one day.
