  English country house - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Country houses and stately homes are sometimes confused—while a country house is always in the country, a stately home can also be in a town.
The country house was not just a weekend retreat for aristocrats, but often a full time residence for the minor gentry who were a central node in the "squirearchy" that ruled Britain until the Reform Act of 1832 (as documented in The Purefoy Letters, 1735-53 by L G Mitchell).
Wilton House, one of England's grandest houses, is in a remarkably similar vein.

 Country house - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The country house evoloved from the castle or fortified mansion and from the Mediterranian villa.
Historically, a country house was the centrepiece of an agricultural estate large enough to provide the landowner with sufficient income to be accepted as a member of either the aristocracy or the gentry.
Also, many country house owners and members of their families served as Lord Lieutenants and Justices of the Peace, and local courts were still sometimes held in country houses well into the 19th century; this practice was a holdover from the Medieval manor courts.
