I live in the city… It gets to me sometimes but it's all I know and it's familiar and I love it. However I am going for sea change. I think it would be good but I am nervous about it.

I'm a very happy farm girl and the house we live in now has been in DH's family a long time and I love it - verandahs and high ceilings and wooden floorboards and fire places and while there are renovations I want to do one day, it's home and hopefully will be until I'm an old woman.

I would love a sea change. We almost did it a couple of months back as DH had a business opportunity, but we backed out as they wanted more than what the business was worth. Such a shame! We were looking at NSW north coast, and looking at semi-rural acreage in a old villa. That would be my dream! Beautiful old house with wrap around veranda, enough room for fruit trees, vege patch, & chooks. But not too far from the beach or major city. I don't ask for much, lol!

Tree change, which we have already done by moving from the city to regional NSW, but we want to do it again and move out of town, to either a small village nearby or some acres. Ideal places would be old (but renovated and in good condition) 4 or 5 acres, and a place where it snows in winter (which is just up the hill from here!).

I live in a rural town and its my ideal spot, the house not so much. I would be happy with a 5 bedroom house with a play room and some decent land. This is our step up house, when we buy again it will hopefully be for the last time and will be in this area.

I grew up on a farm ... it was very isolated and while I enjoyed it as a kid, as an adult that lifestyle isnt for me.
I am very much a city girl now - though the beach is great !!!

I live in suburban brisbane now. But in my perfect world I would live in a major city smack bang in the cbd ie London, Bangkok, Singapore, Mumbai, rio or New York or any city with more than 10-15million people. I would have an apartment and either walk or catch public transport everywhere. I'd never need a car and I could have anything and everything delivered to my door.

We live rural. We are in the heart of some amazing places which many pay big money to see, this is our backyard. We love it, wouldn't live here if we didn't. We don't need to be anywhere else.
