Would you Like to Live here? :: A cottage with a pool and a cosmopolitan attitude...


I often figure that the perfect lifestyle 
would be living in a little city-pad, 
preferably a chic cottage,
for the weekdays.
And then escaping to a rambling country retreat on the weekends.



 Where a barely-tamed garden would yield white pear blossom
by the arm-full,
and baskets full of crisp green vegetables,
to be picked in the fresh country air.


So a cottage rather like this one,
currently on the market,
would be one half of the puzzle completed.


Because the space in the cottage wouldn't have to be huge,
just very clever,
and as long as there is a little sun-drenched courtyard 
in which to drink a glass of wine with friends,
it would be rather lovely.


And I could bring back flowers from the country house
to dot about the city cottage,
perhaps rose hips, blossom + wattle flowers,
about to burst forth in golden yellow balls of globular goodness.


And try to keep work to the weekdays only.
With the weeknights saved for the theatre & galleries.
And weekends for country farmer's markets,
long walks & late lunches in the garden.


Of course, it's a rather romantic notion. 
So a romantic little cottage suits the fantasy.


So what do you think?
Would it be a charming lifestyle,
to have the luxury of two homes, 
one in the city and one in the country?
(This is a fantasy, so we don't have to think about cost,
cleaning or forgetting in which house your favourite outfit has been left.)

And for the city pad, 
would you love to live here?
