A four bedroom home near a beach or a city centre is the most sought after dream homes in the UK, according to new research. Some 45% dream of a home built to their own specifications designed by an architect or themselves but only 38% think they'll only get to live in their dream house if they win the lottery and 26% don't think they'll ever achieve it. Most people would want an array of high technology and glamourous features that costs £3 million, the research from home buyers estate agency Tepilo found. It also found that 48% would want en-suites in every bedroom and the same number a television or cinema room, while 47% want a huge kitchen with its own kitchen island and the same number a huge garden. Other top desires were walk-in wardrobes and dressing rooms, an indoor swimming pool, a conservatory or orangery, open fires and wood burning stoves, a double front door and his and hers bathrooms. Some 38% want high technology security features, and a further 35% say they'd want their dream home to contain a series of mods cons such as remote controlled heating, lighting and sound systems. Other things near the top of the list are a balcony, a relaxation room, a library, a gym, a separate granny flat or guest lodge, a wine cellar, an aquarium, a bowling alley and a bar. On a beach is the most popular location with 16% wanting a view of the sea but another 16% want to be in a city centre, 11% in the countryside, 10% in the suburbs and 9% in a village. Some 29% want four bedrooms, 27% want three bedrooms and 21% would want a house with five bedrooms. Only 11% would want six or more bedrooms. Meanwhile 14% want a cottage, 12% a huge mansion, 13% a detached bungalow, and 13% a modern home. Amazing views from the garden are important for 52%, 40% want a built in barbeque, 38% a large veranda, 34% a big garage, 30% a water feature, 30% a sweeping driveway, 30% separate out buildings and 20% a children’s play area. ‘What's also interesting is the amount of money Brits would spend on their dream home, despite money being no object. Up to £3 million seems a pretty low price to pay for the ultimate pad, but it demonstrates that we're a price orientated nation that expects value for money when it comes to property,’ said Sarah Beeny, owner of Tepilo.
