1200 s/f is perfect (for me at least) for a single person. that gives you a second (or third) bedroom to free up clutter (computer, fitness equipment) from the main area. kinda tacky having a computer area in the dining room and no where to have a sit down meal. i agree about 1700 s/f. my girlfriends townhouse is that size and she's lost in it.
