In the past few decades, there has been a trend among urban investors, to own a piece of land in the rural areas and convert them into vacation homes with lots of greenery and landscaping around. As the vertical expansion of buildings in metropolitan cities, leaves little space for greenery and open spaces, the demand for such housing options has increased and people have actively started to invest in land in remote areas. A farmhouse is one of such housing type, which allows the investor to own a land and a vacation home amid greenery.
A farmhouse is a kind of property in an agricultural setting, which is used for residential purpose. Usually surrounded by a farm or a garden, such properties are also used as vacation homes with rural flavour. Generally, farmhouses are spread on a huge chunk of land with front porches. Depending upon the available land, farmhouses can be one or two storeys and are often used as second homes or weekend getaways.
