I loved the home/lifestyle of a family that lived next to us. They had hundreds of land. They had an L-shaped house that I thought was beautiful, a sunken living room/TV room with floor to ceiling windows, and floor to ceiling windows in most of the house, with a very open concept other than the bedrooms, a long covered walkway to a huge garage, a patio on the inside of the L-shape, with wrought iron patio furniture, a large yard surrounded by lots of wooded area behind, house on top of a hill with wonderful views, across from a country club. They had horses. I'm in my 50s now and still have not achieved that lifestyle. Still would like to.

I've watched movies/shows just to see the houses!

I fell in love with a high school classmates Victorian. Her bedroom was the turret room.

But what I've always wanted for as long as I can remember is an old house on a farm. Still working on it!

After reading "My side of the Mountain", I wanted to hollow out a big tree, next to a stream.

There was a Mediterranean style home in one part of my old home town and I always wanted to have one. Now I do! I call it 'Tuscan Lite'.

We lived in my dream house for a few years (rented). From ages 13-18. Very old house (~125 years), two stories with a big attic, two staircases, 12 rooms, a balcony upstairs and a porch in the front and the back. In the middle of a horse/cattle farm.
Loved it...

My friend was "rich". I wanted to live in a house like her's. Funny thing was, her house wasn't much different than ours. I drove by her house a year ago, and someone had ruined it with aluminum siding, and my old house looks much better.
