“My dream home would be a lovely size house on Shaw Ridge estate, 4-5 bedrooms and a great garden,” says Christina Hodson, while Corinne Amor fancies “a 3 or 4 bedroom house in Old Town. It would have a nice size garden and be close to Town Gardens or Lawn Woods for lovely walks. And for my partner, a spacious kitchen as he is a chef and can serve me romantic meals in the dining room.”
Olga Rubio’s dream home is “a gorgeous 3 bed house in North Swindon for less money than a studio flat in London located above a 24-hour convenience store”. Simon Maisey says “a large house in Broome Manor would do me”. Charlie Pope, meanwhile, dreams of “an open plan bungalow in the Wiltshire countryside.”
A heartening number of responders put family at the heart of their dream home. “All I want is a nice modern family home with a spare room for my son and all his toys,” says Nicole Bagley, “a place where we can be happy and build lots of wonderful memories.” In similar vein, Josie Wollerton told us, “My dream home is somewhere safe for me and my little girl and next to my mum so we can see her more.”
Interestingly, some people’s aspirations veer towards the more practical side of things. “My dream home would be maintenance free, there always seems to be another job which needs doing,” says Christine Bishop Sunter. Kim Heeps obviously agrees: “My dream home would be a self-cleaning one!” “Tidy,” said Stacy Fenemore.
“The responses have been fascinating,” says Chris Dewhurst, director at Dewhurst & Co, “and they’re a reminder that property is not just about bricks and mortar. We all have our own ideas about the location, size and character of our dream home, but when push comes to shove, most people are looking for the same thing and it can be summed up in three words: home sweet home.”
