A farmhouse is a living space linked to a farmland and serves a residential purpose in an agrarian setting. However, the very premise of a farmhouse is totally different in urban areas, where it is believed to be a high-end residence, adored and enjoyed by the elite class. Most people spend a fortune on farmhouses to enjoy the serenity and privacy they provide away from busy urban life.
Now let’s have a look at some localities in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad where you can realise your dream of owning a farmhouse.
Fast fact: Although you may not find farmhouse societies developed by state-owned development authorities in Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad, you will find many farmhouse societies set up by private developers.
Lahore offers a variety of land on Bedian Road near Defence Housing Authority to build farmhouses. Sophia Farm House is one of the more famous farmhouse localities on Bedian Road. However, Thater Village in the neighbourhood can also be considered.
Similarly, Eden Farm Houses and Green Acres are decent locales where you may find stupendous farmhouses and various swaths of land at different rates.
When it comes to farmhouse societies in Islamabad, the Federal Capital seems to have them aplenty. Bahara Kahu, Chak Shahzad, Tarlai, Orchard Scheme and Bani Gala are some prominent names in this regard. In Sihala, you could find farmhouses spanning up to an astounding 60 kanals.
And if you are looking for comparatively small farmhouses on 5 kanals in Islamabad, you may need to head towards Multi-Residencia & Orchards of MPCHS.
Karachi, the City of Lights, does not seem to have much appetite for farmhouses, as there are only a few such societies in this largest metropolis of the country. Swaths of land to build farmhouse may be found in Gadap Town, Bin Qasim Town, and Super Highway.
Prices of farmhouse land
Farmhouse societies are usually located on the outskirts of the cities and are unlikely to be as pricey as other housing societies located in city centres. The price of farmhouse land is largely reliant on the location of the society, its location within the society, proximity to nearby amenities, and also the size of the land.
