Dream House

Saw the house today. It is our DREAM HOUSE. It has everything I have ever wanted in a house. It has huge windows and high ceilings and the original shutters, and slate rooftiles and a stone floor in the hall and floorboards everywhere else and working fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a walled garden and an apricot tree, and no-one has messed about with it in 200 years, the room layouts are exactly as they were, and I love it love it love it.

We are already bracing ourselves for disappointment and the misery of knowing that we have found our dream house and some other bastard will get it and be living in our house and no doubt ripping out the insides and turning it into a boring generic "hotelified" luxury home devoid of character or interest.

Unfortunately it is Bank HOliday weekend and the estate agents are not open, so we have to wait till Tuesday. We are trying not to appear too keen.

If you want it, go for it. I'm sure as a cash buyer [??!!] you can could cut a very attractive deal. Dream houses don't come around too often.

Another thing you miss about Hong Kong? The 24-hour property agents? :-) The house sounds amazing! A walled garden with an apricot tree? Wow!

Is it possible not to appear too keen? I am never good at that.
