Taking advantage of the view VS family friendly living

Hi all, My husband and I have been going around in circles about where to put the main living, kitchen and dining area.
We have an good view over the city and as soon as we brought the house it was definitely going to be on the top level, but it is 5 metres above our pool area. As time has gone on my thought is to put the main area on the ground level with a large deck - to be closer to the pool and put the main bedroom, Bed 2, Rumpus Room and the smaller deck up on the top level to take advantage of the views. Basically swapping the Ground and First Floor design from the stairs to the deck/balcony over??
My husband thinks that we are silly not to take advantage of the main selling feature (the view) from the main rooms and I'm thinking of the practicality of everyday living, as the last thing I want to do is to be refereeing fights 5 metres in the air??
I'm confused. We are in Brisbane so outside living & pool will be used all the time.
Any discussion points, thoughts or ideas will be very welcomed.
