My main home is 2,700 sq.ft, and has 5 bedrooms plus a study, which means that the small bedrooms are not roomy, and the bathrooms are not big and luxurious as other homes of the same size. It's where we raised our children, which are now grown. It has more rooms than what we use right now, and a couple of rooms have been used to store
My other home in the forested boonies is 1,800 sq.ft., but with perhaps 1,200 sq.ft of total deck, overlooking a hill side. Initially thought it was small, but after living there for a while, realized that we actively used only 1/2 of the space. Of course, we spent more time on the deck or working the large lot and not cooped up inside. Though smaller than the 1st, it's better built and of the same market value.
The two houses complement each other, as they are opposite; urban vs. rural, low vs. high elevation, hot vs. cold climate.
I am happy with both, and have no plan to sell or move, although that's more house than we currently need, considering my plan to do a lot of traveling including RV'ing in the next few years. I am sure that eventually we will settle down from traveling, and will appreciate the 2-house arrangement even more, particularly that they are only a 2-1/2 hr drive apart.
