Hmm. I’d like a decent sized (~1800-2500 sq ft) older home.  (1900-1940). I love Victorians and Cape Cod style homes. A big porch, a nice kitchen. A decent sized yard and a huge loft to use as my home office/studio space. A fruit tree in the back yard, lots of sunlight, big windows and very energy efficient. Probably 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom. 2 car garage. Something like these:

No constraints right?

I’d like something like this with a big wrap around porch, lots of character.

My dream house… not a huge fan of the yard and all, though. But the house is gorgeous.

I loooove southern plantation homes. If only… our current house is teensy (800 square feet) even though it’s worth over $500,000. Time to move to a cheaper area 😉

Still in my general area and not RIDICULOUSLY huge. And it has land!

I would want a modest home such as:

 

 

LOL sorry, I couldn’t resist.  A castle is my dream home.

 I would love a home like this, a big Texas Ranch-style home with at a minimum 2000sqft, 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, “sitchyated” on a quarter acre. However, with my husband wanting to be career military, its unlikely I’ll ever have this home. Heck in San Diego you’re lucky to have a backyard period.

We live in our starter home now, but with the birth of the little one, we realized how small the house is. We will definitely need to upgrade if we want to try for another one.

I have my eyes on homes in a town near us. They are up on a hill and have an amazing view. It is all horse property (If you live in the Riverside area, I am sure you know what town I am talking about) so they have huge lots. We have a friend that lives up there and I just love his house! This is an example of one. Nothing too fancy and definitely not cookie cutter. I will also still be close to family and friends which is a +.

Mmmm I’ve been dreaming about a Craftsman-style home for almost 10yrs. Preferably 4BR with a master bath all on its own, two stories, big front porch that allows for a porch swing, and big windows. If it could somehow be near a warm beach, I’d be one happy Bee.

I don’t think I would want just one house. I’d want a very modest house near downtown/in a good school district in London, one in Paris, one in my hometown, one in Kyoto……
