    We live 4 miles outside of town in a tract with 5 acre pieces, so yes, it would be out in the country - sort of. 

    1) I much prefer living outside of town because neighbors are not right under your nose so you get a little privacy but not total isolation.

    2) We have a lot of wildlife on the property.

    3) We can have horses, or chickens or whatever - we don't but we could.

    4) Room for the dogs to run.

    I live in a small town now but have lived in a big city as well. I wasn't a fan of the business and noise of the city, never mind the pollution and fast food chains as far the eye can see. I like the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of a little town personally.

    I live in country. 1) we can grow my own vegetables or fruits without added chemicals etc. 2) we keep chickens and rabbits so again, we have "bio" meat and eggs 3)  you have some cardio in winter while shoveling snow and in summer I don't even have to tell you what house chores

    I live in the country..sort of. I love it because it's quiet, our neighbors aren't on top of us and at night the star light is amazing smile

    I live in an "exclusive" townhouse in the city; exclusive in the sense that only those who can financially afford can live here (and the gates of the whole area plus the compound where I stay is strictly 24-hours guarded and my doors vaulted)...rich people, so to speak. I live alone and should have liked to have a maid like I always had but ever since I found out that my maid was an accomplice to an attempted robbery in my home in another part of the city before I moved in here four months ago, I have to get away from a maid. My daughter has one maid to come by once in a while and a cleaner provided by the homeowners association comes once a week.
    I had been living in the center of commercial area (the big mall is just around the corner, banks, school, church, traffic, restaurants, etc.) in the city for more than a decade until my husband died and my two children becoming successful in their studies, career, and marriage lives. I tried to live with them but I didn't like the feeling of "just another family member" despite all the comforts. The longest time I live with my (millionaire) son was five months...it was very comfortable and happy with my growing grandchildren...eldest is sophomore college now...but I prefer to live alone and reign in my own "kingdom".
    It's very scary to live in the city (Philippines) when people suspect you are rich...when they know I have a millionaire son,  foreigner husband, and living alone...I had always been a target of criminals, robbers specifically. I had been robbed lots of times and had some kidnapping for ransom attempts to me, thanks to my son's success.
    I prefer to live peacefully and normally in the country where nobody would try to pry on you as to whether you are rich or poor. The last time I had lived in the country was 37 years ago when I was pregnant to my son and was exiled and "hidden"in my father's farm until I delivered my baby and stayed two years longer until I went back to the city with my two-year-old son. I loved the country...it was beautiful and peaceful...now I am still on "hiding" for another reason...hiding from the robbers...and had to stop working for this reason.
