It's quite a toss up for me between the mansion on the beach and the penhouse apartment. I also love old Victorian homes, the more peaks and spindles the better. But if I truly was given the choice, I would pick a gorgeous house on the Pacific in BC. The type that are deisnged in that modern "west coast" style, with lots of tall ceilings, a deck and a big yard. Where I could see the ocean close up, and be nestled among the pines. This has been my dream house for my enire life.
