When I started looking at houses I looked at where I was spending all my time that I wasn't at home or at work then told the Realtor that I wanted a place that was walking/bike friendly to that area so that I wouldn't be driving as much, it turned out that the house I liked the most was to big for just one person so after drinking some beer a friend of mine we pooled our money and bought the house together, not the right choice for everyone but it works well for us, I knew it was the right choice when she said something about getting 45mpg out of an escort station wagon, and parking facing the road so to allow coasting out of the drive way.
There is also plans for a small garden, an apple tree in the yard, at some point solar on the south side of the roof, but first things first, run electricity to the garage for the electric cars, and install a better walk thru door for bike storage.
