    I prefer having a few homes rather than just 1.

    Generally for homes in UK, I don't like anything that was built out of red clay bricks or has brickwork cladding. I prefer Cotswold sand stone buildings that are honey coloured. It goes without saying I don't like living in places where such building materials isn't the norm. I am quite picky, I don't like road or rail noise therefore any home I buy must be at a cul-de-sac or a dead end. Sadly the home in England isn't on a steep slope which is something I do like as well.

    I'm generally very practical when it comes to my home, it must be functional, easy to maintain and must have fantastic views. Exterior I generally like many windows though not necessarily big ones though they must all be triple glazed. I do like really heavy doors and I do like a garage as well that can park 4 cars side by side. Interior, I generally just buy from IKEA only, Not really into furniture for decoration but prefer it for a function.

    The homes in Norway, I don't like stone or bricks here, both my main residence and holiday home is made from timber with slate tile roof. Here I like large windows and elevated decks to sit on, admittedly for my house I've yet to actually sit at the deck though its been more than a year since I moved in. I bought the house next to mine to demolish it so it wouldn't obstruct my view. Thankfully this one is on a fairly steep gradient and I absolutely love it that my house is very close to the summit before there is a steep drop on the other end.

    One thing my homes must have is a garden and greenery, I like it to look wild and generally believe for every person living in the house there must be at least 50 plants.

    Location would probably be near Horsforth in Leeds. Close to ring road, airport and train station plus lovely.

    3 stories with corner spires
    First two stories will be large yellow bricks
    Third story on flat roof would be inclosed and made entirely of glass
    Large room, dining room, kitchen (open plan), conservatory, utility room and garage would make up first floor
    5 large ensuite bedrooms with walkin wardrobes on second floor
    In the glass space on the third floor would be a jacuzzi and gym.

    Several acres of surrounding land would include garden, tennis court, golf bit, fishery (small competitions) and orchard.

    Cost would be about half a million.
    Horsforth is beautiful

    Semi-urban area as a whole so not what i'd call isolated. Just a very nice commuter town.
