A cottage with a lush, rambling garden? yes please.

After living in a tiny apartment in down-town Boston and a spacious in-law suite at Matt's parents house, we are finally ready to start looking...REALLY looking, for a place of our own.
We will be meeting with realtor this week to begin our search. (Weeeeeeeee!)
I know there are practical things we need to keep in mind when we buy our first home...like child safety and structural soundness...but I cant help but day dream about things that would be, you know, just fun to have.
Heavenly harp music play now.
I would love to find a home that has character.
Like built ins, and original stone and hard wood floors.
I'd love a home with a white kitchen, white marble counter tops and a big old farm house sink.
I'd be ecstatic if our new home had enough extra rooms for a library, an office nook, an art studio, and a sun room/green house.
And if the yard could be big enough for kids to play in, a garden to plant, and maybe just maybe, a chicken coop (which I will have to discuss at later date and time), I would be elated!
In some day dreams we live in a beach cottage and others in a huge English estate though we will most certainly end up in neither (*sigh*).
A townhouse built in 1998 is more likely to become the place we call home, but hey a girl can dream and this girl does.
What sort of houses are in your day dreams???
