I always use the old fashioned word 'handsome' when describing my house. It is a 3 storey, bay fronted, 5 bedroom Victorian semi, with off-road parking.
The interior is very simple, with white paintwork throughout, stripped or painted floors. I am an artist, I work here, and the house kinda reflects around that fact. People tell me that my home is artistic and comfortable. Guests seem to like the artworks and blobs of dried paint as adds to the 'arty' atmosphere of the place. There is a strong feeling of space, light, and calm in the house: just imagine an artist's garret/studio (spread over 3 floors) with a sizeable pinch of zen!
