Location for sure!
We attempted a different location for a bigger house. We lasted a year, I was so unhappy.

I'd pick location every time. We did. We could be living in a bigger, newer house if we were 20 minutes away from where we are now, but I'm so glad we're living right here in this smaller house.

We did this and picked the house. We both wish we'd picked the location but then I know we'd be frustrated at living in a house we don't like because we've done that as well.

is it possible to get a middle ground of both?
house is important as it's where you actually spend a lot of time so it needs to be comfortable, large enough etc.
but location is also important. I'd get depressed living in a poor location as I'd feel like I'm mentally affirming to myself every time I return home "this is where I live, this is my home".
when we bought this place it was a compromise of the best location we could afford, and the best house we could get given our budget. we used to live in a really premium area (just renting though) and if we'd stretched ourselves and bought there, we'd be living in a shoebox. I don't think I'd have been that happy with that.
when I say location though, I'm talking desirability of suburbs. I'm not sure what your criteria for "location" includes OP, it might be other qualitative aspects like proximity to family/friends, proximity to work etc. stuff that may make a particular area more desirable to you than the general public. but I'd still be using the compromise criteria, ie trying to find the best house that fits the family's needs the best in, or as close to, your desired location as possible.
