Country living can seem quaint if you don’t like the hustle and noise of a big city. Sometimes, it’s nice to have the peace and solitude that countrysides provide.

And with the right home, you may never want to step foot in urban landscape for a very long time.

The Holly Ridge Farmhouse located in the Wisconsin countryside is a perfect example of such a home.

With its ideal location amongst gorgeous green hillsides and other natural landscapes, the house looks like it’s right at home (pardon the pun.)

The home is tailored to a farm site and has all the traditional features of a farmhouse: several pointed roofs, large windows for plenty of natural light, and a welcoming porch that surrounds the base of the estate.

Note how the rich brown of the porch and the green of the roofs contrast the white paint of the house. The colors are gentle yet aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

The house is perfect for “a small family, empty nesters, or as the meeting space for large groups of family and friends.” Not only that, but the house (constructed by Cates Fine Homes) is built to be “healthy, durable, and sensitive to the local and global ecosystem.”

The Holly Ridge Farmhouse received an award from AIA Home of the Month and was featured in publications such as StarTribune and Fine Home Building Square One Blog.

Once you see the inside, you’ll know why. (The house was photographed by Troy Thies.)

Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a gorgeous kitchen. Designed by Marc Sloot and David Heide Design, the kitchen features hardwood floors and white cabinets to compliment the house’s exterior color.

The kitchen has plenty of space for cooking and storage. The rich colors of the countertops add to the spaciousness of the kitchen.

Next, there is the living room.

The large windows allow for plenty of natural sunlight to shine in, as well as offer a gorgeous view of Wisconsin’s countryside. Look at all that vibrant color.

Amongst the furnishings is an old fashioned wood stove, a traditional feature for a farmhouse.

The bathroom has a gorgeous symmetrical design with plenty of space for two. The white color palette maintains the elegant theme of the house as well.

The guest bedroom is also picturesque and charming. The quarter window panels are another staple in farmhouses and the sunlight offers an inviting glow for any visiting guests.

And the back of the house is just as lovely as the front.

There is a wide backyard for kids to play in, a sleeping porch for when you can’t get enough of the fresh air, and plenty of space for outdoor furniture.

Would you move to the rural countryside for a home like this?
