Model Answer:

Thanks a lot for the opportunity to let me talk about a house that I deem perfect for me. Well, I love nature and want my home close to nature. It should be out of the city crowd and nature should embrace the entire home. A lonely place is desired for the home – far away from the city life. The home should be near to any lake or river. The mountainous region is also preferred for my home.

The home should be moderate in size and shape. There should be two bedrooms with ample space. It should also come with a kitchen and two spacious bathrooms. I would like to utilize the natural light. So, the ventilation system needs to be quite good. The door and windows will be made of wide enough to allow the sunlight.

Honestly, I am not a fashionable man. And this is reflected in everywhere. The similarity is here also. I do not want my home to look like something extraordinary. The outlook will be simple but the inner decoration needs to be gorgeous. I will have minimum furniture. And obviously, it should be a single storied house with a garden in front of it. It would be a plus if the house faces south.

If I can manage everything together, it would be a perfect home for me. I love to live with nature. It helps to get a pleasant feeling. The spacious home will allow me to move freely inside the home and the garden before the house will help to get fresh fruits and vegetables. I will spend time under the tree shades and read books. Life would be enjoyable. Based on the reasons, it would be a complete home for me.
