Consider a small house with a finished (insulated, drywalled, sealed concrete floor) garage for extra storage. We have a covered carport/patio between the house and garage that works well in our moderately warm climate. Typically, small houses have less storage. Look for the right house then add the garage, if necessary.
As others mentioned, in snow country, get southern exposure and avoid steeply sloping driveway. Pay attention to where storm water runs off for both flooding and erosion.
