Farmhouses, by their very nature, have a bucolic country look. But some veer into the territory of embracing other design styles, like craftsman or Victorian. Sometimes you might just want a farmhouse that looks so country you can’t help but want to plop it down in the middle of a farm somewhere.
The homes below were chosen for elements that represent the country aesthetic. Barn red is a common theme, along with exposed rafters, quaint gables, wide country porches and other country elements. So if you like farmhouses that look like they were absolutely made for the country, look no further.

This home is so country that it’s barn red and has a weathervane at the top of it. White accents create visual depth, and the arches on the porch give it a classic feel. This home has four bedrooms and three and a half baths.
