Have you ever thought about how you want to live out your days when you're done with work?

Perhaps you'll jet off and lie back on a beach somewhere exotic or you'll stay home and enjoy the company of your family.

But could you imagine yourself sharing a home with six of your childhood friends?

Well, one group of women from Guangzhou, China, are planning to do just that after clubbing together their money and buying a mansion for themselves to live in when they're older.

The women, who are currently in their 30s met 20 years ago and have joked for a while about living together when they retire.

However, when they stumbled across the perfect house, that joke became a reality.

The group shelled out four million yuan (£462,000) to buy the property and do it up, as it was in a pretty sorry state.

Now the three and a half storey house looks incredible, with a swimming pool, open-plan kitchen a 'tea pavilion' and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Speaking to Yitiao, Jin Du, one of the seven, explained how they would live separate lives until their children were grown up and moved out.

Then they would all move into the big house together in their 60s and grow old in luxury.

Their future plans include cooking, singing, having barbecues, collecting food from the village and enjoying the stunning views around the property while drinking tea.

She adds that they have all also made a pact to learn a useful new skill before they move into the house, such as growing vegetables or cooking something from scratch.

Thousands of people have watched Yitiao's video of the group's house, with many praising the idea to grow old with pals.

One person commented: "Awesome...wish I had friends like that."

Another said: "Looks wonderful...best to the seven lovely women."

A third added: "This house is incredible, built with the most beautiful friendship.
