An Ideal Cape Cod

This is my dream house! Love the landscaping!

About My Dream House

My dream house is a Cape Cod. It is spacious enough for a us but not too big either. It seats on a large lot surrounded by woods. In the back of the house, we have built a deck where we have breakfast every morning weather permitting. The deck has a gazebo where I grow climbing vines. The front of the house has 3 dormers and a welcoming entrance with lots of lots of flowers. Inside the house, there are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a family-room with a stone wood burning fire place, dining-room and living-room. The basement has a media room, a gym with steam room and whirlpool jets and a Brazilian Cherry dance floor.

What I Love About This House

My dream house is special because it has a real fireplace where we can sit and look out the woods through the windows. Yet it is walking distance to King of Prussia Mall - no driving! It has lots of windows and lets natural light flow in throughout the day. The backyard is spacious enough for all the kids to play happily without worries about breaking windows.

Tips and Tricks

  • To get help with colors, drive around your neighborhood and look at what other houses look like with brown or black roofs and look at the various color combinations.
  • A dream house can be a challenge but also a lovely and happy place. All I can say is "follow your dreams!".
