Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi give YES! magazine a tour of their home—their first major investment as a married couple—in Pasig City.

For Carmina Villarroel and Zoren Legaspi, the real beauty of a house goes beyond its aesthetics.

In an interview with YES! magazine, Zoren attributes the light, fun, and maaliwalas vibe of their home to the family's closeness.

The couple is like a barkada to their twins Cassy and Mavy.

He says, "Sa tingin ko it's not the house.

"Pakiramdam ko 'yong energy na pagpasok nila sa house, 'yong energy na naba-vibe nila inside the house—iyon 'yon.

"Sinasabi ko nga sa kambal, ‘Ang ikinakaganda niyan [their house], iyong mga taong nakatira sa loob.'

"No matter how big your house is, kung lagi naman nag-aaway ang pamilya, hindi nag-uusap, walang communication, naglolokohan—it's not really a home."

Carmina throws in, "Gusto namin maging dating ng bahay na it's not just a lovely home, but it's a home.

"Iyong parang ganoon, yung super happy family."

Here's a virtual tour of their former residence in Pasig City which was featured in YES! magazine's May 2008 issue and YES! Celebrity Homes Special 2008.

According to Carmina, she didn't find the need to hire an interior designer since she herself loves collecting home magazines.

Meanwhile, this den also doubled as Zoren's "man cave."
