Brits would favour an en-suite bathroom over a swimming pool in their dream home
Brits ‘dream home’ requirements include ‘mundane’ amenities like an en-suite bathroom ahead of top-of-the-range extras such as a home cinema or a swimming pool.
En-suites topped the list of what we would have in our 'money-no-object home', with walk in wardrobes coming in second.
Simply having more natural light was third on the list, followed by a summer house in the garden and a bigger kitchen.
Just one in three adults would opt for a swimming pool – indoors or outdoors – in their dream home.
And only 22 per cent would want it to come equipped with a state-of-the-art gym.
The research was commissioned by The Grand Draw, which is offering Brits the chance to win a £1.1 million mansion – Orleton House - in a raffle.
Dream home fantasies
“It turns out that many people have fairly modest requirements for what they consider to be their dream property.”
In need of luck
Three quarters fear they’ll never be able to live in their perfect residence without a lottery win, according to the OnePoll research.
But if the unlikely did happen and Brits won big, 43 per cent would up sticks to a new area – while 35 per cent would stay in the same location, just in a better house.
The Grand Draw’s spokesperson added: “There’s a lot to be said for trying to make the best of what you have, and if you can do that, you may already be in your dream home.
“However, our competition means you could end up with a dream home for a lot less than the £2.7m Brits say they expect their dream house would cost.
“Tickets for the raffle are 10 for £5, and if £1.7m worth of entries have been bought by June 30th, the winner will become the proud new owner of Orleton House near Ludlow, Shropshire - and two charities, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and Beacon, will also split £100,000.”
