   My dream house is located about few kilometers from the big city, in a very picturesque place near the endless river. I dream about place like this because I prefer clean fresh air and unpolluted water. It is a very cozy, comfortable, well planned detached house with lots of big windows.
    If you asked me about the rooms, I must say that I don’t need many of them, but  all the rooms are  large and light. The modern front door opens into a wide hall, where you can see many exotic flowers and mirrors. The bedrooms are very large, comfortable and elegant as well. There are soft, huge beds and many antique things there. It makes me feel comfortable. By the way, every bedroom has a bathroom and a  toilet, which are spacious and modern. There is no question that the accent of the house is a living room, because it is the place where I can relax, watch TV, listen to music or just sit and look at the fire. And I also have a big kitchen in my dream house. The kitchen must be light and have all modern equipment such as huge fridge, microwave, modern oven, and dishwasher. Oh, and some words about the furniture. It is so comfortable and elegant!
 Outside the house I would like to have a beautiful shady garden to spend free time listening birds’ songs and leaves rustling ,a front garden with rose bushes and large lawn. And there is  a swimming pool next to my house. It’s so nice to swim in it in a hot summer day. And as the modern life is impossible without cars ,  I need the garage.
  That’s all about my dream house. I hope, that one day my dreams will come  true. It would be great to live in the  house like this.
