I LOVE Roman houses! It could be cool to have an internal courtyard design with the great room on one long side and an orangerie on the other which can be instead of a greenhouse elsewhere on the property and double as a wedding venue and our outdoor eating area for holidays and events.
Roman Chedworth Villa England. Used by Romans to denote a villa set in the open countryside, often as the hub of a large agricultural estate (latifundium). The adjective rusticum was used to distinguish it from an urban or resort villa. Thus serve both as a residence of the landowner and his family (and retainers) and also as a farm management centre. It would often comprise separate buildings to accommodate farm labors and sheds and barns for animals and crops.
