Yeah, fortunately the fourth floor is just a second master so we use it as a guest suite only. If the whole house were over two or even three floors it would be ideal. Really, though, we're in a walking community with great schools filled with young families so even the 6+k sq.ft. Single family homes on my street/community are tall and have no yard...there's always a compromise somewhere.
