So far, the most popular choices are

1 Victorian House 15.6%
2 Airship 11.1%
3 Tower or silo 11.1%

Is that a surprise? Though I'm not sure why the tower is as popular as an airship.

 Its probably a primal thing.   The protection of being in a tower and be able to view the horizon, to spot dirty rascals  approaching

I used to command an ATC unit.  Watching a thunderstorm blow through form a control tower is fun.  There might be a slight Freudian aspect too.

My dream house would be one I didn't have to clean and didn't have to buy groceries for. I'd rather shovel manure than clean (and being a gardener, I do!).

I would like a tower attached - but I also have to have a lift (elevator), as my mobility isn't what it used to be before I was smashed to pieces!
I would also like minions!

 Imagine the potential with this  seemingly abandoned place. It has more than dash of mystery

It does look like it needs more than just a lick of paint, though.

 The old pile may need repiling.  New Windows,  doors, stucco,  inside wall linings, floors, plumbing, electric, roofing, steps, stairs... But hey  it a rare sought after  classic  home  in an exclusive location.... [condemned shack in an abandoned area  even the crack heads won't go]

Something along the lines of this is exactly what I want to achieve.  Just so soon as I'm in a position to start the house hunt- hopefully, later this year or early 2020.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

It's a long, long term plan and has kept being put off for a year or so for the last five years.  Firstly paying off my post-grad debt, then by the time that was done I was looking for a new job, now that I've got the new job I'm in the habit of paying down my under-grad debt.  So until now (and arguably even now) the times and circumstances haven't been quite right.  At the moment I'm debating whether to hold off until paying off the under-grad debt (about another year to 18 months at the current rate I'm paying it down).  I might give it a few more months and take a view on it then. 

I do have a pretty firm idea of the sort of house I want to buy, the principal difficulty is needing to find one with car parking (on with car parking which isn't merely 'abandon your vehicles on the the street I mean).
