I saw a house for sale in a riverside suburb of my town yesterday. I had a look at it on the realtor's website. It was stunning, to say the least.
Five bedrooms, five bathrooms. His and hers studies off the parents' retreat. A media room. I counted three different lounge rooms in the photos, as well as two dining rooms. The laundry had more benches and cupboards than my kitchen, and a kitchen double the size of my kitchen. Then there was a patio that looked like it could have been as big as my whole house!
The ad claimed floor space of 1200m2. That's 13000 square feet.
I have no idea what I would do with that much space. Maybe share it with another family, or two. Or three. And hire a full time cleaner.
But fortunately I don't have $2.5 million to spend on a house.
