    The Crafstman style, definitely, would fit into my idea of a 'dream home.' I'm a sucker for earth tones, wood tones, and a clean look. I also like big bannisters, and large pillars, with nice sized knobs on top. Wait....what were talkin' about again??

    :)

    My dream home would be a 5-million dollar villa in Southern California—where I will be moving to. I love different types of home styles but for me, it would be a combination of contemporary, and mediterranean with a few traditional accents.

    As for the interior design of the villa, it would be a total bachelor's pad without any feminine influence and interference. :biggrin1:

    Holy shit!!! I actually saw the falling water house in my search.

    If I was being honest, my idea house is this:

    • Three floors
    • No basement
    • 4 bedrooms
    • 3 bathrooms (two showers and one needs to be joined to the master suite with a hot tub)
    • Some sort of spiral staircase and alot of windows
    • A large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a breakfast nook
    Now, those were all things that would be nice. If I can't have those things, I have to have:
    • A front porch or veranda. I need to have a place that has a place I can sit in the spring/summer/fall and enjoy the occasional thunderstorm as well as the evening sunset.
    • One big bedroom for me to sleep in, with the adjoining bathroom.
    • Two car garage. I like to park my automobile in the garage.:rolleyes:
    • A Fireplace.

    Frank Lloyd Wright, my man... :biggrin1:

    Almost forgot about this one, up for sale last year...

    LOL - what would the mortgage be on $5,750,000? With say, $5,000 down? :tongue::biggrin1:

    This is more in my price range...

    ...or maybe this

    I've always had a thing for big rambling Victorians, farmhouses, and craftsman style homes. I adore those older shore homes you see from Maine down to the Outer Banks with wrap around porches and widows walks on the top floor.

    I've listed some house plans I like, but none are perfect. I would have to do a cut and paste of at least 3 to get the perfect home for me.

    My Dream Home should have:
    Large wrap around porch

    A formal living room
    Large family room
    Large dining room (seats 14 comfortably)
    Large kitchen with an Aga Stove & dual electric ovens (I love to cook & entertain)
    4 bedrooms
    3.5 baths (half bath should be near the front door)
    Two fireplaces, one for family room, one for master bedroom
    Lots of built in shelves! (I love to read)
    Bay window w/window seat
    Ideally it should be within 30 minutes of the Atlantic Ocean



    House 1

    House 2

    House 3

    House 4

    House 5

    Let me add Philip Johnson's Glass House and Neutra's Kaufmann House to your fine list.

    Desert living agrees with me, preferrably in the old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs. Or in the canyons. I'm ready to retire.

    A few properties on the market I'd love to consider:
    Rancho Mirage
    Old Las Palmas
    Panorama Road
    Vista Las Palmas
    Deepwell
