How to Find Your Dream Home

It is when you know the house can be converted to your dream home your search for house would end! We search for a comfort zone in that concrete structure, where sense of belonging prevails and there is emotional security in addition to physical needs. This thought holds good during search of rented houses or independent houses or apartment complexes. Designer houses are good to look at but when it comes to actual staying the locality and interiors matter a lot. We look forward to share with friends and relatives and create happy memories!

For me this dilemma of short listing a property, owning a dream home is never ending. After all it is a lifetime investment. Bangalore is a cosmopolitan city and is now crowded with apartment complexes. I have seen the same in Milan, Italy. In Lisbon too I found several high rise buildings. The old town of Lisbon, Alfama, though has houses with interesting façade designed with tiles which exhibit the aesthetic sense of the residents. They reflect their personality, likes and interests. The old cobbled streets of Alfama, has a warm feeling, and the clothes hung out to dry makes it even more homely. They often do up their balconies in a colorful manner. One can therefore conclude that it is possible to do up an apartment complex tastefully.

More Homes…

In Netherlands I visited a dear blogger friend of mine. The houses in her locality were row type. Each having a little garden of their own and hers was done so beautifully that I felt I could spend hours there beside the little pool with Koi fish. I saw some row houses during the drive to Fort of Breendonk from Brussels, Belgium and in Penang Malaysia too. The more you see the more your aspirations increase. There are similar kinds of row houses in outskirts of Bangalore. They have a very neat layout with criss cross of roads and are mostly gated community.
