We look forward every Christmas to visiting some of the city's most beautiful homes and wondering how their owners pass the time in those marvelous spaces. Almost all have an open kitchen with an adjoining family room, where it is clear they spend most of the days, and probably a patio with barbecue, garden and small pool. Some houses have generous outdoor covered porches with a full set of furniture to fully enjoy the good weather.
We had difficulty deciding where we would prefer to live. However, my friend settled on the house with the walk-in closet the size of a bedroom and a laundry room the size of a kitchen - with folding table, dry cleaning equipment and TV to watch while folding. Pretty neat!
No photos of interiors allowed, so you must use your imagination.
