Are the high house taxes offsetting another lower tax for your state? That is a consideration - and is usually the case.
Who's going to clean the 2700 sq feet?
I had a big house, now I try to live in the smallest one possible because then you don't "fill it up" with crap and you have less to clean and heat/air cond if that applies.
But the trails etc. do sound great you can credit $30/month less in gym fees since you're getting that w/ the place!
Hope your kids like to mow and rake!
Congrats - hope to be in your position one day too!
