Telling houses means telling the light that passes through them, the greenery that surrounds them, the time that separates them, the silence that protects them, the life that animates them, the people who designed and lived them, and trying to imagine the people who will live there.
At Hometelling we discover the houses that excite us, and tell you about them. For a moment – just for a moment – we forget about price, square meters, condominium rules, land registry details, and energy coefficient, to leave room for the most intimate meaning of living, the connection between man and its private space, and between the house and its surroundings.
This is the value of a home, its ability to protect us, excite us, welcome us, connect us with the outside world.
