We like to think that most people either dream of moving to the country, retiring away from the city or at least owning a vacation home that is found in a more rural setting and with these dreams in mind, we have some stunning country properties to show you today! In each of these cases, the architects in charge have drawn inspiration not only from the surroundings, but also the proposed use of the house and it really shows! Not only will you see some seriously stylish traditional country dwellings here, you'll also be treated to a few rather unusual styles. Are you ready to see some seriously inspiring rural homes? Then let's begin!

1. Where does the garden end and the house begin here? What a way to get lost in nature after work!

2. Pastel wood cladding and a charming white picket fence? Is this country home heaven?

3. How about something more contemporary but still not urban? What an incredible design.

4. This must be straight out of a fairytale! Just look how sweet it is! This is what we picture when we think of country houses.

5. Oooh! How about a country house that doubles up as the perfect vacation home too? Yes!

6. Well, those Brits certainly know how to build a stately country home! Is Downton Abbey filmed here?

7. A combination of traditional and modern motifs, this fresh white county home has us picturing a simpler kind of life.

8. Big and beautiful with a definite barn-vibe, this is a rural dream home that wouldn't have us missing the city AT ALL.

9. Can you imagine renting this as a fun vacation home for the holidays? It's almost too dreamy!

10. Small doesn't have to be boring; it can simply be idyllic and charming, like this lovely little house!

11. WOW! Now this is what we call a ranch! Look at that stone chimney.

12. A cabin in the woods has to be the ultimate in country home ideals, surely? Just look at it!

13. If this is n't the perfect little holiday home for Christmas, we don't know what is! It's even the right color for Santa!

14. Maybe this is the log cabin that was dreamt up in a fairytale? Would you ever want to go back to the city if you lived here?

15. Talk about getting away from it all! The simplicity of this country home has made it so striking and sweet.

16. Your country or vacation home doesn't have to be made from wood you know! Check out this stone haven!

17. This might be the most opulent barn conversion that we have ever come across! Seriously, it has everything!

18. What a mix of Scandinavian and country aesthetics, with a good dose of modernity added in for good measure!

19. Sandstone bricks are always a surefire sign of a beautiful country home. This one doesn't disappoint either!
