20 Beautiful Country House Designs

classic country house in washington, ct

For centuries, country houses have been popular in places all over the world. Most well-known for being large homes built in the English countrysides, country houses are known for being a flair of luxury to otherwise simple spaces. In fact, in the past, country houses –due to their high maintenance — have even been the source of employment for large numbers of people in rural communities.  Although these days, people seem to be more interested in living closer to big cities, country houses still hold a special place in many people’s hearts.

The way country houses look may have changed somewhat over the years, but if there’s one thing that hasn’t changed it’s that these houses are absolutely beautiful. After all, think about how impressive it is to see a beautiful home rising out of nowhere in the middle of the country. From wood, to brick, to stone, these houses can be very versatile, and they can come in a variety of designs. While country living may not be for everybody, these homes are proof that life in the country doesn’t have to be bad.
