Sample Answer

Home is where the heart is. A house becomes a home truly when those occupying it, like to live there. I was born and brought up in the Doon valley situated on the foothills of the Himalayas. I grew up in a house overlooking the mountains. My work commitments forced me to migrate to Delhi, where I still reside. Whenever I want to take a break from work, I always prefer to go back to Doon and enjoy its serene beauty. I love this place and infect I have planned to build my dream house in Dehradun in the coming few years.


It’d be a small-sized villa situated in the middle of a large piece of land mountain facing. The external architecture will resemble the houses located in the European countryside giving it a rusty look. I would also like to have a garden with seasonal flowers right after the entrance gate. Having my morning and evening tea in the lawn of my dream house has always been on my bucket list.


Apart from the front garden, I’ll also make arrangements for a well-equipped kitchen garden in the backyard. Nowadays, organic farming is quite popular and I’d like to experience the luxury of homegrown fruits and vegetables, a privilege I enjoyed in my childhood.
Coming to the interiors of this house, it will have two bedrooms, a study, a living room and an open modular kitchen overlooking the living room. The kitchen will be equipped with all the latest gadgets to make cooking easier as well as exciting. The other rooms will have interesting and trendy décor giving them a peaceful ambience.


Since I’m a voracious reader, I’d like the study to be laced with all my favourite books wherein I can indulge in endless reading sessions and muse over my reading experiences, while looking at the mountains from the study window.
I intend to work really hard to build my dream house where I can resort to/spend solitary time during the summers and take a rejuvenating break from the mundane city life.
