You can build as many homes as you can afford to pay the upkeep/taxes for.
As to where you can place them? No, there are defined housing areas, not like city lots on a nice grid, but more like anywhere in this valley, or on this bluff.
You can build different size houses with varying costs and resources. You can build castles, boats, ships, galleons, tractors, scarecrows, nurseries (which are "underwater scarecrows"), and advanced crafting stations. So much you can build as long as you have the gold and resources for it.
