For the Kapamilya actor Enrique Gil, family is very important. That is why after having the financial capacity to built his own house, he took great importance of considering his love ones in the final design of his modern style beach house in Batangas.
According to the 27 year old actor, while others are very much comfortable living alone, he rather prefer to be around and spent time with his family whenever he goes out from his busy showbiz schedule. Enrique also emphasized to value the opportunity of being with your love ones while you still have time for they won’t be there by your side forever.
“Ayoko kasi nu’ng I’m living in a house tapos alone”
“Some people like living in separate houses. You’re a family, so habang tumatanda, the lesser time you have here on earth.”
“Why not spend it with your family, every day, while you’re still here? Sama-sama tayo.”
“Ako kasi, if I have the choice, we’ll have one big house where me, my family, my brother’s family, my sister’s family in the future can stay there.”
“Lahat kami, magkakasama. It’s more fun when you go home.”
“Minsan, pag-uwi mo, andaming schedule ng iba. Minsan, ang ending, ikaw lang mag-isa sa bahay—lahat, wala.”
“It’s so depressing. That’s why gusto ko, pag-uwi, there’s always people there, so it’s alive.”
The result? A very stylish and cozy five storey, ten 10 room beach house located at a secluded cove which affords Enrique and his family the privacy and serenity they need away from the spotlight. Gil shared that it was his mother, Mom Bambi who first spotted the area during a company outing ten years ago. She also took full responsibility in the house’s interior designing and style as soon as it was ready. The property, according to the actor, took at least a year and a half to construct.
