5 things I would love in my Dream Home is in collaboration with West Village.
Since we emigrated back to Australia, we’ve been renting our home here. I would so love to buy our forever home and it’s in our plans for 2017. It got me thinking about the things I would love in my dream home.
You know, those things that we may not get but we can dream about!
I recently found out about West Village. Described as a “visionary re‐imagining of heritage buildings, a bustling retail hub, lively green spaces, eclectic laneways, all creating a diverse precinct that is set to become the beating heart of Brisbane.”
It really sparked my interest because West Village has so many of the things I would love in my dream home and location!
If I lived in West Village, or had an unlimited budget here, these are the 5 things I would love in my dream home:
5 things I would love in my Dream Home
1. A Swimming Pool
It’s always been a dream of mine to have a house with a pool. I think it’s the dream of a lot of Brits! This is a possibility as many houses in Australia do have swimming pools.
The Brisbane climate is perfect for spending time outdoors, lounging by the pool and al fresco dining!
2. A Minimalist look
I drool over Pinterest images of clear, white spaces and wish our house was the same. This is pretty much impossible with two small children! I’d love a home that had big spaces and ample storage though to keep our things tidy and uncluttered.
3. Lovely local shops and restaurants
More specifically though, shops and restaurants local enough to walk to. When we lived in Sydney we had so much on our doorstep to walk to with the kids. Now we have to drive almost everywhere so I’d love to find somewhere with fun places to walk to nearby.
On the ground level of each West Village apartment block, you can find cafes, restaurants and bars. That’s my ideal setting for my dream home.
4. A Big Garden
Our two kids love to run around the garden and we also love to entertain. It would be fantastic to have a garden big enough for a deck for dining and a garden to play in.
Of course my dream home would be big enough to host a movie screen too – the whole family would love that!
5. Light, Bright Space
The house we are currently in is so light and airy. As I work from home and spend so much time here, it’s essential for me to live in a light, bright space.
I’ve lived in dark houses before and it just saps my mood. I really hope to find somewhere that is as bright inside and outside as we are now.
West Village is located 1.1km from Brisbane’s CBD and adjacent to South Bank and its Cultural Precinct. It is an iconic destination that celebrates the much loved culture and heritage of West End.
It is an exciting new destination that’s really changing the face of inner city living, with its unique combination of bars, restaurants and retail stores layered amongst designer homes with parks and pools. It really sets a new benchmark for homes and design in Australia. It’s has everything that I would love in my dream home!
