For me, I really like coastal towns. In terms of a real life setting maybe New London CT.

Somewhere in southern California I love the atmosphere there I hate NY I feel like I was born in the wrong state it's so dark and gloaming here. I hate winter so much in NY yeah the snow is pretty at first then it becomes a pain in the ass. I'll take sunny weather all the time over it with beaches and palm trees plus legal herb.

Bill Gates’ mansion in Washington pretty much strikes my ideal home: built into the side of a hill right on the lakeshore, smack dab in the wilderness. His home is gorgeous and perfectly situated and designed. Bill’s a man of excellent taste.

Coastal town, warm to temperate weather, English speaking, plenty of wildlife, low cost, high employment, legal prostitution.

Sounds very similar to where I live, lol... Central Coast, Australia :)

I guess the countryside with some farm animals or a coastal house in Cali.

Or just maybe in a island.

For me, I need to be surrounded by technology such as an urban areas. I live in big cities in all my life and I actually like to live in a nice town, coastal towns sounds nice and as long as I can get a good Wi-Fi area spots is all I really need, then I'm down for coastal towns.

Hmm, ideal home would be either midwestern small town US or near the Rocky's or similar.

Never have nor will I ever be a big city person, I like peace and quiet and close to nature.

I'm serious. Streets would be much narrower and cozier without having to accommodate those damn vehicles. The air would be cleaner, the city would quieter, it would be easier to get around, everything would be much closer because you wouldn't have all these parking lots, roads and all the business that service cars. There would just be narrow roads for public transportation systems, which would be far more complex. A few alleys for taxis. More trees with all the added space. Cars suck. They're annoying, ugly, loud, always in the way... You have some nerve complaining about cyclists in the other thread.

Mountainous rural area where my house is located about a kilometer away from the next one and about an hour drive away from the city.

I'm a big fan of the part of the world I live in (BC Canada), i'd just like to escape the city and move to a smaller town (but still big enough to have most amenities I'd need).

work makes that difficult, maybe one day when I retire or can find a way to work remotely

You guys named two of the big places that have sounded appealing to me for years. Nice, cool Seattle and Scotland.

@uninspiredcup: What parts of Scotland are more affordable?

I could fly to the moon and shed stalk me there too.

I do love Chicago. The rest is a secret.

Realistically what I need is to live in the middle of a big city. With close proximity to work, restaurants, stores etc. Just like I live right now in central Stockholm. There are lots of German and French cities I could consider moving to, it's all about that lifestyle. I get stressed by long commutes, I have done that throughout my late upbringing when I started attending high school up until I got my first job after college. I really don't want to do that again.

But if I wouldn't have to work I can do without with a lot of those things. Then I would prefer to live in a cold mountain town where I can snowboard every day. Towns like Åre, Hemsedal or why not Chamonix, Flims or St. Anton 😌

@Ovirew: I would imagine the rougher more drug-riddled places, like most countries.

Just, by being in proximity of Edinburgh automatically jacks prices.
