As important as the house is the property. Privacy is key, particularly after the devastating destruction at our current property's back line. This means at least a full acre. Some trees, but definitely some sunny places to support flowers, fruit trees and shrubs, and room for a real veggie garden. A waterview would be nice, but not necessary - I think water (tidal or not) nearby is more important. This time of year, I always want an evergreen tree in the front yard. Location near a reasonable town is preferred, and a village feel rather than completely rural woods or farmland.
