Building Acreage Homes in Tamworth

Your Experienced Acreage Builder

Peter Verrier Built to suit larger blocks and growing families, acreage home designs are a versatile and affordable option for families looking for more room to grow in a natural setting.

As a local builder, and with the region holding a lot of rural land available in its surrounds, Stroud Homes Tamworth has a great deal of experience building homes on acreage land.

According to Stroud Homes Tamworth builder Peter Verrier, it is on these larger lots where Stroud Homes acreage home designs are right at home, even though smaller lots in estates still caters for an acreage style home design.


What are, in your experience, the main questions you should ask yourself before choosing to build on acreage land?

The following questions can have significant costs which is why it is better to be aware from the beginning so that these things can be factored into your budget:

  • Is the land clear for the house to be built, does any clearing need to occur or is there an existing home that needs to be knocked down?
  • Will the soil type be higher than usual or extreme? This impacts on how the home will be built and the foundations required.
  • Does the land have services such as water, sewer and power connected?
  • Will there be bushland around the block that is likely to impact on the likelihood of a bushfire damaging the home?

What are the pros and cons of building an acreage home?

The pros to building on acreage land include the size of the land. There is so much room that really you can have any home design you choose. It also means there’s plenty of room for sheds, extra water tanks, a pool, large yard for the kids or animals.

Acreage living also generally means you are away from the hustle and bustle of town, which can be quieter and sometimes the land can be more affordable.

However, the other side to being away from town can mean extra costs for service connections such as water, power or sewer. Another extra cost might be having to clear the land to start the build.


What are the typical challenges with these types of projects for you as a builder?

There can be challenges with any block of land and there is always something different about every block we work on.

Generally with an acreage, accessing the land can be tricky, and with little infrastructure it can be a challenge.

We are local to the area so we understand the enticement of living on acreage, and we have found over the years different and creative ways to overcome access challenges.
