Some people were born to be city dwellers, and have absolutely no problem with living in ridiculously expensive, confined quarters in order to be located in a place where all the action happens like the Big Apple or Los Angeles.
But if you gave these people a dose of truth serum — even those that swear up and down they love every single solitary moment of their life in a big city — it’s fair to assume they would admit that at one time or another they considered leaving the hustle and bustle behind for a much larger abode in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by few people other than family.
Unfortunately, many of us who would love nothing more than to build a house hidden away from the masses will never be able to afford to do so. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still dream about it, and live vicariously through those who can.
Thanks to the internet, we’ve privy to information about interesting locations we never would have known existed in the past. Through the years, a plethora of breathtaking hidden houses in random parts of the world have been identified and numerous pictures of these homes have emerged on social media.
