While some (most) of us struggle to organise a group getaway, these seven Asian mates have managed to buy a house together.

Putting us all to shame, the best friends from China forked out £460,000 (4 million yuan) to renovate a home to live in until their old age.

They first spotted the property in the suburbs of Guangzhou, the south-eastern Guangdong province, in 2018 and decided to make it their retirement home.

The three-storey mansion, which is next to paddy fields boasts floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a tea pavilion, a massive open kitchen and a swimming pool.

It’s the ultimate squad goals.

The group of friends have known each other for 20 years and decided in 2008 that they would love to live together one day.

Making their dreams a reality, the ladies who met at work now own a luxury 7,535-square-foot house, situated in a quaint village away from the city centre, with a private bedroom for each lucky lady, according to Yitiao in a report.

And because they’re like-minded friends, the gal pals, now in their 30s, decided to make a tea pavilion in the middle of the field, connected by a bamboo walkway, as they are all tea lovers.

‘At first, it was just a joke,’ one of the friends named Jin Du told Yitiao. ‘We said we would get together when we were 60 and live the retired life together.’

‘We’ll cook, have barbecues in the fields, sing and collect food form the village.’

And to ensure maximum efficiency in the upkeep of the house, the friends have promised to master a skill that will be beneficial to them all.

Some of these include cooking, traditional Chinese medicine, growing vegetables and playing music (someone needs to bring the entertainment after all).

‘We’re all independent individuals but we can communicate and rely on each other at the same time,’ added Jin.

‘Ten years later our children would have all grown up. So we hope we can be together again in 10 years.’

Anyway, some of us are off to find six more friends.
