Dream House

Warning!!! Very Boring Post Ahead!!!

My dream house would have all of the following:

Be on a tree lined street in the suburbs, like Wisteria Lane, full of friendly neighbors, sidewalks where children ride bikes, etc.
Be within walking distance of a nice park
Be 5 minutes from work
A flat yard and driveway - for easy mowing, and winter parking
Built brand new, so we have some control over paint colors and cabinets, also we should have a longer time before things start to go bad and have to be replaced
A garage
4 Bedrooms, including 1 large master suite with a bathroom
1 other full bathroom and at least 1 other half bathroom
A formal dining room
Laundry room on the main living level
A chef's kitchen, complete with large counter tops, stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), plenty of cabinets, and a pantry with shelving.
A large family room with built in bookshelves
A partially finished basement
A screened porch
A large fenced yard, with plenty of room of a tree house and a garden
No gas heat
Central air
A fireplace

What I will settle for:

Enough space (this could be 3 bedrooms and a full basement, or 5 bedrooms and no basement, or 3 bedrooms and a storage building, etc - you get the idea)
Central air
On a street without yellow lines
In a nice area of town
Large Kitchen
Less than 20 minutes from work
Under $120,000

You see? I am dreaming of a lot - but I don't really NEED much to make me happy!!
I just want to make sure that whatever we buy is big enough for us now plus a baby or two!
