I think based on your description, I would go bigger. I went from a 20L pot to a 60L and very glad I got the extra size, although everybody's situation is different. If cooling is the only issue, an immersion chiller does a good job of speeding the process of cooling the larger batches; they're not that expensive should last for years. Alternatively, I've been reading that some brewers just put a sanitized towel on their kettle and a lid and let it sit overnight to cool to pitching temperature - a method I'm switching to on my next batch. Since it's winter where you are, and if you have the room, this might be a good alternative to explore.
