We are in the market for a new home and actually started our search today. We looked at two properties and how I wish they looked like these beauties. Do you go for the house of your dreams or the more practical house for the kids. The first house had everything inside I could wish for - high ceilings, claw foot bath, large cottage house with loads of character and even a sperate room under the house for either another bedroom or play room. My furniture would look amazing in this house and its an easy walk into town. The downside is the block is quite steep and the house is close to the road. The second home is on three acres very plain but has fully fenced paddocks, stables, sheds and even an above ground pool. The kids would love the space but it is not my dream home. I know the land is more practicle at the end of the day. Think we will have to sleep on this and weigh up whats more important. Do you go with you heart or your head?
