  • how you know about this place

and explain why you would choose to live there.

Sample Answer:
This is a nice topic to talk about. I have been dreaming for a long to have a home of my own, where I will have absolute freedom to live in and the place would be a nice one, close to nature. Moreover, the home decoration would be according to my choice and everything would be picked by me.

Well, this dream house would be near the hill which is around 2 kilometres away from my current living place. This hill is one of the most beautiful places in our hometown and I would pick this place to build my dream home. There are numerous hills and tea gardens in this locality and I would specifically choose a tall hill where I would be able to build a small home with pine woods. The flat top of the hills would allow me to build a home and a large portion of this place would be used for gardening and farming.

I know this place from my childhood. This is a naturally beautiful place where I went for the first time with my family for a picnic. I was around 12 years old at that time. We had our lunch in the hilltop area where 3-4 farmer families used to live. The idea of having a home there was formed in my mind at that time. I have visited this place several times later on and the serenity and beauty of hills, river, tea gardens and simple lifestyles of the inhabitants appealed me a lot each time.

I would build a wooden home that would have 4 rooms. One for my bedroom, one for guests, the third one would be my study room and the largest one would be the one where I will work. This would be a simple hut type home with large front garden and farming lands. I will pick the wooden furniture and obviously everything I will need to live a decent and hassle free life.

There are many reasons I would love to live there. First, the beauty of nature: the surrounding view, the flowing narrow river, tea gardens, green picturesque scenery and sound of nature would be the perfect elements to live in peacefully. I think this would allow me to stay away from a chaotic urban lifestyle and to stay surrounded by the Nature. Secondly, this would allow me to finish a book I have started writing which is still in its initial stage. I would have plenty of time to appreciate the life and meaning of being alive. The urban life surrounds us with so many problems and complexities that I sometimes feel severely stressed about. I would take this excellent opportunity to revive my spirit and self-satisfaction.
