Ditto here!
I have turned down jobs that sat me in the depths of cubicle hell.
My new home office is quiet and only two cats distract me if I
absent-mindedly leave the door open. I can't think in a noisy beige

My only alteration to the above Dream Job: add a door to that office
to keep out hallway chat.

You guys have described the office where I work...

One "roomie"
A 133 pentium with "lots" of toys on it.
A coffee pot across the hall
A CD player in my office
Several plants
My Dilbert and Ratbert stuffed animals
A door
A window
A boss on a 3 week vacation
A job a really like
A pay scale more than I even think I'm worth (and I think I'm hot-shit)

Life is good

I don't speak for my employer and they return the favor
