I've owned my house 4 years now and lived here 3. The unobstructed view to the west is something that I cherish the most. In fact, everytime we are driving around and I'm like "I LOVE THAT HOUSE! I WISH I LIVED THERE!!" I now look at their sunset potential. I think a view to the west is a must. :) It's something about watching the sun sink below the fields that is just amazing. Plus getting photos like these without leaving home is even better.
