Off the top of your head, if you could live anywhere at all, would you choose life in a big city, a place in the country, or a great home in the 'burbs? Describe.

Mountains/country.  Far far away from neighbors.

While the boys are still home with us I want to stay in the suburbs. After they fly the coop, who knows? But we'll probably stay in the 'burbs then, too. We're so not country and I need more space than you can typically get in a city.

I'm not generally country either, I'm just tired of having neighbors who make crappy decisions.  

This house would be the perfect balance.  acres of property, amazing viewn in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, and a tall fence to keep people out.

I actually considered mountains. I grew up in the country with no neighbors, very rural Oklahoma. Hated it! I think I would do better with mountains but I need to be fairly close to Starbucks. And a mall.

 Country.

Not too far out but far enough away that you have no neighbor for at least a few miles.

I just need less people, but I couldn't live in Oklahoma, ever.

A flat in NYC and a house in BFE ;)

If I had to choose one, I'd go for the flat. I think its important to have access to educational opportunity cities and culture.

Lovely. Did you design that?
