How to Describe my Dream House

Dream House Reading

My dream house has lots of rooms and windows. It has a big red front door. There is a huge living room with comfortable sofas and enormous TV screen on the wall for my family and I to spend time together.

In the basement, there is a giant game room with a ping-pong table and drum set for me and my friends. It has a fridge for drinks and snacks.

There are extra bedrooms so my friends can spend the night .My bedroom is blue with lots of shelves for my toy car collection. There are lots of posters of my favorite actors and singers, but they are big electronic screens so they can change all the time! There is also a brand new computer, a sound system and a telescope because I love astronomy! My bed is special! You climb a tall ladder to get it, I sleep under a window, and I can see the stars at night!

Outside my dream house, there is giant swimming pool with water and field nearby for a beautiful black horse
