Help! House choice

I have put an offer in on this property www.zoopla.co.uk/property-history/31-cefn-adda-close/newport/np20-3dr/50536839 it is really lovely but the kitchen is tiny and can't be extended due to the staircase.
Initially I was buying and keeping my current property however since putting in this offer I have sold my current property meaning my affordability is quite increased and this dream home has come up for sale - www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-82587194.html
My thinking is the dream home really is the forever home.
🙈it's a lot of money, to not be sure..

Love number 2 the dream home! Also doesn’t need a lot doing to it, where as number 1 there are a few things I would need to change ASAP like the colour of the hallway in the stairs! Also not keen on the landing upstairs.
If you can afford number 2 without draining every penny of your money and still be able to live a comfortable life it would be dream house all they way!

Number 2 is a vision in grey. I love it. It looks lovely. I bet you could do a bit of work and make the first one as lovely though and spend less money. Even if you like number 2, you’re still paying for someone else’s taste. Don’t be swayed by the furnishings. Good luck with whatever you decide.

No 2 looks like a computer generated show home - certainly the outdoor furnishings look computer generated and so do a lot of the internal shots. The garden looks a lot small on Google streetview. It's a bit close to the river, so I'd be checking flood risk.
If you try to download the brochure for the first house, you get a message "this house either does not exist or is not on the market" which is a slight disadvantage

Most definitely house number 2. As you can now afford it, you’d be kicking yourself later if you didn’t. Not only bigger house (and at least to me, kitchen size is important) but the location looks better. House number 1 has the car park and us that garages to the side? Noise of that would drive me bonkers in summer.
