    The city, the suburbs, or the country - your preferred place to live.

    If money was no object, what type of area would you choose to live? Would you like to live inside the city, maybe in a nice loft, condo, or apartment? Or maybe a good-sized house in the suburbs? Or maybe even out in the country with a big house and lots of land? Which would you prefer as the location of your primary residence?

    I would prefer to live in the suburbs near a major city.

    Put me in town with no lawn to mow and I am happy.

    I am definitely a big city type of person. The suburbs bore me. I love the beach, and the country, but for vacation not living.

    If money were no object? On a private, members only golf course.

    Out of the available options, I would take a large house in the country with lotsa land.

    I currently live in what could be considered 'the country' but it's more like a rustic suburb. Like. I know who my neighbors are even if we aren't all that buddy-buddy. If I had a choice? The city. Give me 24/7 restaurants, lounges and sushi and I'm yours. However my wife wants our kid to grow up away from all that. So...yeah.

    Definitely suburbs. IMO, cities are overcrowded and the countryside is undercrowded.

    For the city folks, honest question here... don't you ever get tired of living elbow-to-elbow with so many people? Noise? Lack of privacy? The whole 24/7 lifestyle doesn't get old after awhile?

    I grew up in the country on a farm. Moved to a fairly big city in my early 20's. Got tired of it within a year or so, moved back to the farm, been here another 20 years and glad of it. I see deer, raccoons, foxes and squirrels in my front yard. I can sit at my picnic table and can't see the neighbor's house. It's quiet and peaceful. I love it.

    I live a couple hour's drive from a semi-major city, and do go visit there on occasion to enjoy what it has to offer; so I do get the attraction. But living there? Not for me.

    To each his own, of course.

    Sea front property (most probably on a cliff) with a big city (and lots of culture and sites to go to) nearby.

    I like neighbours but I don't want to hear them row / having sex / scream at their kids / doing DIY at 8a.m. on a Sunday morning.
