Seven Mates Buy Mansion So They Can All Live Together When They're Old

Seven best pals have pooled their cash and bought a mansion so they can all grow old together. How's that for friendship goals, eh?

Like all the very best plans, the idea originally started as a joke, but when the septuplet spotted the massive pad in need of some work in the suburbs of Guangzhou, China, they decided to make it a reality.

The group then spent four million yuan (£462,000) doing the place up and now it looks amazing, with huge floor-to-ceiling windows, swimming pool and spacious, open-plan kitchen.

The three-storey property also have impressive gardens and the women, who are all tea-lovers, have eve created their very own 'tea pavilion', so they can sit outside in the stunning surroundings and enjoy a brew. Sounds ideal.

Speaking to Yitiao one of the women Jin Du said: "At first it was just a joke. We said we would get together when we were 60 and live retired life together."

Personally, I can't think of anything worse than having to live with a bunch of my weirdo mates in my 60s but fair play to them, if they can manage it.

The women, who are now in their 30s, have been best mates since they met at work 20 years ago - they're hoping that once they hit retirement age and their kids have grown up and moved out they'll be able to move into their swanky new pad and enjoy growing old.

"We'll cook, have barbecues in the fields, sing and collect food from the village," she added.

The women have also all made a pact to learn a 'useful new skill' before they move, such as how to grow vegetables or how to cook a decent meal from scratch.

Jin said: "We're all independent individuals but we can communicate and rely on each other at the same time."

Sounds you like you've all got it sussed, ladies.

After their video of their plush new digs was shared on the Yitiao YouTube account dozens of people have commented to say they want to follow suit and get their own retirement gaff with their mates.

"I am in," one person wrote.

Another added: "This is so nice, having a bunch of close friends and live together in a beautiful place like this."

Others complimented the women on their 'beautiful home and beautiful friendship'.
