IELTS Speaking topic: A house or apartment you want to live in

Describe a house or apartment you want to live in.
You should say:
where this place is
what it is like
when you want to live in there
and explain why you want to live in such a place.

Well, if possible, I’d like to live in the Siheyuan in old town of Beijing, which is the product of 3000 years of accumulated cultural wisdom and building practices. An average Siheyuan is situated in the north and faces south, and usually has its main gate located near the southeast corner of the courtyard with a screen wall just inside, maintaining the privacy of the residence. The courtyard is square, vast and of a suitable size. It contains flowers and is set up with rocks, providing an ideal space for outdoor life.

I just want to live in there when I have my kid, so that I could invite my parents to live with us together, helping me look after my kid. The Siheyuan in Beijing attracts me so much because it would be very memorable to experience the unparalleled creation that was left behind by ancient Chinese craftsmen and its unique cultural treasure. Every time I bumped into some Siheyuan, I particularly adored the roof, the big wooden gate and the traditional Chinese ornaments. In addition, there are always large extended families living there together which normally made me feel warm.
