I've lived in two houses. One had an unattached garage, set in the back yard. My current address has a garage 'to the side,' attached. If I had my choice, I'd go with an unattached garage. It's convenient to have a garage handy, but fumes, extra dirt and grime, and open doors spoiling the facade of our home are factors we've had to deal with. Attached garages are often built with doors to the side; our lot wasn't large enough for that touch.
This is what I'd call a beautiful house. From the Depression era, built by Italian craftsmen, as stylish today as it was in the 'twenties.
