The worst, no sunshine in winter at all, burn to death in summer until 9:30PM.
You don't know what you are talking about
I am now living in a single house with exact same facing. Nowadays I don't have to turn on any light for kitchen and family room until 5:30pm. Starting March until November, my kitchen and family room will be so bright that absolutely no light needs to be turned on there until we finish dinner. Not only this saves our electricity bill a lot, it makes us feel much happier after work.
How about the summer hot which supposed to be brought by West facing windows? Far less a concern than we thought because: 1) Late sunlight is never too hot and afternoon sunrays from higher angles will always be blocked by 屋檐; 2) With very flexible cellular blinds, we can block whatever amount of sunlight as we wish.
Many local homeowners actually prefer West or NW facing houses. I've lived in "ideal" SE facing townhouses before, but will never want to experience again the dark kitchen after work, or the much slow melting of snow and ice in the driveway.
房子好不好, 首先看位置, 其次看邻居, 最后看街坊 ...
For this house facing, an extra master bedroom window facing south would be preferable.
