Building Acreage Homes in Ipswich

Building Acreage Homes in Ipswich

Building your home on acreage

In Ipswich, acreage builds make up approximately half of all the houses Stroud Homes builds and the clients choosing to build an acreage property vary.

It’s everyone from first home buyers building a smaller acreage design with plans to expand with a granny flat later, to families looking to build their ‘forever home’.

Stroud Homes Ipswich also builds on acreage for retirees who have put in the hard yards and are now looking for a quiet block of land to enjoy.

Ipswich builder Tom Sachs tells us more about building acreage homes.

Before building

Before building your new home, it’s important to ask yourself if the build will suit your family, budget and lifestyle.

“Acreage blocks are fantastic to get away from the busyness of inner city living, but also typically require a fair bit more maintenance work to maintain the land and are typically a little bit further away from transport and shops,” says Tom.

For Stroud Homes Ipswich, building acreage homes usually requires a bit more planning.

On acreage blocks the team needs to consider thing like HSTPs (home sewer treatment plants) if no town sewer is available, water tanks if there is no town water (or only trickle feed water), and power.

Stand-out features

Stroud Homes Ipswich’s acreage home design range offers everything from the beautiful stonework on the facades and the high ceilings, to the well thought out living spaces that allow views over your property.

Stroud Homes also offers the turnkey packages that can include everything you need to make the best use of your acreage block.

“We can do pools, sheds, stables and anything else you might need to make your acreage property work,” says Tom.

“Any of our acreage designs can have tanks, HSTPs, solar or anything else added to make them suitable for ‘off the grid’ living.”
