Oh For the Country Life !

I am having serious longings to live in the "Country" .. I have not decided which country this country will be in , but I do know that living in an apartment, no matter how nice, is not satisfying me these days. I want to have coffee or drinks or lunch or anything ! out on the terrace ..
I want my kitchen to be rustic/sophisticated/homey. I am tired of cupboards, I want Pantries and shelves with pretty dishes and cups.
I can put out my collections of antique Tins and my great-grandmothers china tea cups.
I like the window and the view even better. I want to fall asleep to the sounds of crickets and maybe a breeze in a tree, that is all. I want to wake up to sunshine or even clouds, but no loud noises, no cars honking, no sirens, just a bird maybe.

I want to walk in from a busy day and put my things on the table or chest by the door, run upstairs and change or walk on in to the kitchen and put on the tea kettle.

I think I must have a beam or two in my country home. I am not 100% sold on the black and white floor but I do know I love the beam and French doors. I have an apartment full of french doors, they are wonderful, I will bring them with me. Well, I will have them in the country house also. (I can see the look on my husbands face, when I say, we have to take the French doors with us ... as he surreptitiously calls the psychiatrist .

And the bathroom, I would like a fireplace in the bathroom but I won't make it a deal-breaker. But I do need a deep soaking tub.
A large window looking out over the gardens would work too.
And the living room, cozy, dog friendly and inviting.
I don't think this is too much to ask for ! Do you ?
