Should we buy the expensive dream home now or get a smaller, more affordable house we know we'll eventually move out of?

Spouse and I take home about $17k per month after tax and maxing out 401ks (about 295k total camp per year). We are planning to move back to our MCOL hometown soon so we have started looking at houses. Ideally, this move would be our last (at least for a longggg time-we want to settle down w/our kids), so my preference is to buy our forever house. Continued in comments

I am 37 and just started aggressively saving 4 years ago (beyond maxing my 401k). I have around $500k in retirement accounts and $350k in savings and investment accounts. About $200k in equity in my house (half paid off). Beyond maxing my 401k I have 6k/month I save/invest. Ideally want to retire in 8 years (45). What are good options to do with the 6k/month? Right now I just blindly buy mutual funds.
