    Article "My ideal home"

    Could you please correct this article I wrote? Thanks in advance

    Here's the task:
    "If you could choose the type of house you would like to live in and its location, where would you live, what sort of house would it be and what features would it have?
    Write your article for a college magazine"

    Since when I was small, I've always dreamt of living in Australia.
    I love the country's climate and I would truly like to have a house near both the beach and a big city, in a small town at the North of Sydney, perhaps.
    Of course everyone prefers to have a big house, or a mansion. I would be but content even it's not that huge, but it has to be set in a nice place and have certain features.
    It must be, for instance, very lightful, with many windows.
    Also, it should have two bedrooms, for sometimes I may host friends who come visit me from Italy (the country where I live now).
    I want it to be in a relaxed area, but not cut out of the world.
    On contrary, I'd like to have neighbours, if they're polite. But, anyhow, who can choose them his own?

    A couple of suggestions. The rest seems OK to me.

    If you mean that the town is a part of Sydney then it should be 'in the North', but since it's unlikely I assume 'to the North' is what you meant to say.
