Like most people that don’t own a home outright, that would be number one on the list. I don’t want a grand castle of a house but a comfortable cozy home. No more than 1 bedroom more than what we may need. The living room, kitchen, dining and library should be an open floor plan.  This may make one huge room but when people aren’t’ near one another they won’t react with one another.   Out of site out of mind and I don’t like that.  I would have the money to add an addition if necessary. The land is what we would splurge on.  Maybe we should just buy a plantation. Think about looking out your windows and seeing nature every morning. A breakfast nook that looks out over a body of water and seeing the sun rise above the trees. Look out the bedroom window at the fog dense woods where the deer are grazing early in the morning. Being able to take your camera out and have a different photo everyday. We could live off our land from growing, fishing, to hunting.
