I’d like to live in a two stored wooden detached house, because there would be much space. I think it’s enough to have two bedrooms, a nursery, a bathroom, a toilet, a kitchen, a study and a sitting- room. I want to have and an athletic room, because I like sports and a bathhouse. In my house would be ancient furniture. In a sitting- room the walls and the floor would be wooden. I want to have a fireplace there. In my opinion, it would give cosiness. There I ‘d like to see a television, a bookcase, a sofa and a coffee table. The windows would be curtained. I don’t like crowded rooms, so in my house there wouldn’t be a lot of furniture. I think that everything look wonderful if the house is tidy.
gate. I can’t imagine my environment without a lawn and the flower- beds. I like to be out, so I want to have a wooden table and the seats in my yard.

I'd like to have a huge house, both modern and classic; I'd like to have big windows, plenty of mirrors, a pool, a nice garden to arrange, a sophisticated furniture and plenty of details.

i have my own idea of my dream house.
A dwelling of my dream is not a flat but a two-storeyed mansion. And as a real hostess I’d like to arrange everything in the house according to my taste. When you come to me, you push a big wooden front door, wiping your feet on the door-mat, and enter the hall. The floor is covered with a fitted carpet, the wallpaper is light and has a small pattern. There’s a seat and a small table near the wall and a huge mirror above it.Then you enter the living-room. The bright full-length curtains are drawn back, and sunshine fills the room. The living-room suite, consisting of a sideboard, a bookcase, a sofa, an elegant coffee table and three armchairs, is arranged around three walls. There’s a video system near the window.
On the ground floor there’s also a kitchen and a bathroom. The kitchen is a very large room with a big window. There is a gas cooker with a hood, two wall-cupboards and a sink unit there. Near the opposite wall there is a dishwasher, a refrigerator and a table.
Let’s go upstairs and have a look at the bedroom. This is a very cosy and warm room. The bedroom suite consists of a bed, two bedside tables and a wardrobe. The window overlooks the back yard. In my house there is also a terrace, a garage and a garden and so many other things I’d like to have; at least, in my dream house.

my dream house would be so stunning i was not be able to descriptiont it exactly with words,because none of them would be correct! , due to i want to tell some information about my "real" house,it would be ultra modern and big,there will be stylish furniture and modern equipment: tv.comuter and etc.it would be spacious and would be located in the centre of tbilisi.yes i want block of flats,to my mind in city it is more convenient then detached house but of course the last one would be very luxurious with garden and swiming pool,but i prefer apartment building it is more modern and takes less time and energy when we cleaning house.

Hi sara.gho. Sorry about that - there seems to be a problem watching some videos with Internet Explorer. We are working on it and hope it will be fixed soon!

Are you using Internet Explorer? If so, try using another browser like Chrome or Mozilla and then you should be able to see the video. 

Have you tried watching other videos in Video UK and Video Zone? Do they work for you?

Thanks for letting us know!
