IELTS Speaking Sample Part 2 - A Perfect House You Saw

Updated: Jan 24

Describe a perfect house you saw

You should say:

  • When and where you saw it

  • What it looked like

  • What special feature it had

And explain why you liked it


I’d like to share with you a time when I saw a perfect house in my opinion.

So, I saw this house a few years ago when I was on vacation in the countryside. It was in a small village in the middle of nowhere , about 10 kilometers from the nearest town. Having said that, I actually loved the remote location of the house because it was indeed very peaceful and quiet.

The house was small, but the interior  of it was just as charming  as the exterior . The walls were decorated with paintings and photographs, and the furniture was made of dark wood. There was a large living room with a fireplace, a cozy kitchen, and two bedrooms. You know, it literally reminded me of a cottage in a fairy tale .

But the most special feature of the house was the library. It was located on the second floor, and it was filled with books from floor to ceiling. There was a comfortable reading spot in the corner, and the windows overlooked  the countryside. It was like a dream come true  for me, really. I mean, I am actually a bookworm , so I could spend hours on end  just browsing through any kind of book .

In retrospect , I think the reason why I loved that house so much was because of the peace and tranquility  it provided. I could imagine spending hours reading in the library, or just sitting on the porch and enjoying the view. I know that this house may just be like a chimera for me, but I still hope that one day I will be able to live in a place like it. It would definitely be the perfect place to raise a family or just retire and relax.
