Data scientist Seth Kadish recently put together an intriguing study of the Roomiest Counties in America. What makes a roomy county? Well, the enterprising Kadish took U.S. Census data and ran a report on the median number of rooms in housing units for each county.
The resulting map is a fascinating look at where homes have the most (and fewest) rooms. Each of the top five counties has a median of 7.4 rooms per house.
Spurred by Kadish’s research, we set our sights on the biggest home in each of the top five roomy counties. While these sprawling behemoths are all expensive, the price per square foot on three of the five is right around $200.
However, if you are looking to get the most room for your money, head to Morgan, Utah. We found a house with more than 8,000 square feet of living space listed for less than $800,000 — only $98 per square foot.
