Classic House

Required living space: about 1700 square feet

For you, the old-fashioned colonial, Queen Anne or Cape Cod, the medium-size house with the medium-size yard in the neighborhood that started off middle-class when it was built (70 or 80 years ago) and never changed. There may be a porch swing and/or a favorite tree. There is a high probability of dogs. Which neighborhood? That'll probably depend on the schools.
