I LIVE IN A semi-detached house

I live in kind of terraced house, but the house next to us is not the same like ours.  The house is situated in the centre of the city, so I don’t have to commute to school. We have only small back yard behind the house where a plants and tomatoes are. But there is also a big and old walnut tree.

Our house has three floors. There are shops in the basement, my parents have their offices in the first floor and there is also an extra room for guest (mainly for our grandma, when she comes). And we live in the third floor.

Our flat has an entry-hall, the kitchen and dining room which are situated in one big room – kitchen-dinner, two bathrooms, three bedrooms and another two rooms plus pantry and cellar.

My bedroom is in an attic of the house
