Sometimes, the most important aspect of a perfect home is the location it’s in. Whether you’re looking for a tranquil environment to spend your days, or a busy city lifestyle, your location is something you need to consider. This week’s perfect home is on the lakeside, and perfectly quiet.

The surroundings are really the selling point of this ideal home; it’s quiet, it’s in the countryside and it’s right by the side of the lake. If that’s not perfection, then I don’t know what is!

The Perfect Home: Lakeside and Quiet

For many, an idyllic life in a quiet home in the location of their dreams really is just that; a dream, but this doesn’t have to be the case! For me, this particular dream home is something I’m actively working towards, striving hard to achieve every day. Here’s why…

The house itself is simple, nothing too big. Three bedrooms at most, big rooms and a sizable kitchen. I would like a garden, but it’s not essential with the gorgeous surroundings. I’d like the home to have a rustic feel; very countryside, and the building should have a lot of character. I’ve mentioned before in other perfect home posts that I love a home to be full of light, and that’s the case here, too. I imagine the ceilings to be high, with wooden beams. The floor should be wood, too, with some fluffy rugs for the colder months.

Although the garden isn’t essential, I would like some sort of decking on the front of the house. This is to allow me and my family to look out over the lake, and really take in how beautiful nature is and how lucky we are to have what we have. The decking already being on the house at the time of purchase isn’t important, but the space to build it is essential for me.

As I’ve mentioned, the house in this situation is very much secondary to the location. Although this might seem to many to be much more of a holiday home than a regular home, isn’t that the dream for everyone? And that’s the point. To live how you want to, and not how society dictates that you should. You can live in a beautiful home, in a beautiful space and still have all the convenience of modern living. There’s no need to live in the city, or close to a city, to feel connected. You can do that from your own special place, in an idyllic, beautiful environment.
