What type of homes do you like and what features do you like about that style of home?
For example; I love country homes. Timber homes with verandas all around, combustion fire or open fire, 12-14' ceiling. I love those big deep sinks I cant think of the style, i'll find a pic. Very homestead like and could imagine living in a home like that on a few hundred/thousand acres

I like Hamptons style (think the home in the movie Somethings Gotta Give - my dream home).
I like lots of white, high ceilings, big sofas, views, huge kitchen with fabulous white cabinetry etc etc

Little English cottages.
Or old English Manors.
Bonus points if there's moss/vines growing on the sides.
I prefer the cottages to have gardens that have kind of gone a little crazy... not perfectly manicured gardens.

I like very contemporary modern minimalistic style homes with top quality appliances and lots of gadgets!! Beautiful fresh white walls, open living with lots of glass. Manicured lawn and minimal garden. DH loves old renovated Queenslanders with lots of character and a beautiful fresh paint job. I won when we built a brand new modern fresh house lol.

I love traditional Queenslanders ... the ones you find on old family properties in the country.

Californian Bungalows. I adore them, the lovely big 30's ones. I love the layout of them, how big and airy and bright they are. And their lovely verandahs. I want one. One day
ETA like this one (without that carpet, LOL) http://m.domain.com.au/listing?id=2010377856

I'm a complete house tart. I love many many types.
If I absolutely had to narrow it down it would be:
1. Georgian. Those big Georgian manors peppered around the UK? Love. Georgian townhouses. Love.
2. Industrial. Big old converted warehouse. Huge windows, soaring ceilings and completely flexible layout.
3. Well-designed modern homes. Not big square boxes with a million tiny rooms just for the sake of having a theatre room, but houses that use a mix of materials internally and externally and have free flowing living spaces, good bedroom size and integrated indoor/outdoor living.
Oh. And the house for Something's Gotta Give. That will be my weekender.
