Building Acreage Homes with Stroud Homes Casey

Acreage Home Lifestyle Choices

Stroud Homes’ acreage home range is designed to suit larger blocks and growing families and are a versatile and affordable option for families looking for more room to grow in a natural setting.

A lot of people who look to build on a larger property often surround themselves with lifestyle features such as a swimming pool, a tennis court or a machinery shed to run a hobby farm with a level of sustainability to extend the use of the property even further.

“Our homes are designed with a focus on open plan living and maximising views with the outdoor living area as well as being able to provide zoned living for the larger families,” says Stroud Homes Casey’s new Sales Consultant Cathy Arbon.

We have a chat with Cathy to find out more.

What are, in your experience, the main questions you should ask yourself before choosing to build on acreage land? What are the pros and cons of these types of builds?

The main thing to consider is your lifestyle and what is important to you and your family. Zoned living is an important aspect for those with a larger family or with growing children.

Our homes offer the luxury of separate zones for the bedrooms and a central focus point with the living areas, for when the family get together.

The flow on to the outdoor living zone seamlessly joins together for that indoor/outdoor feel.

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

From a Stroud Homes building perspective, building an acreage home is no different to building a suburban home apart from the time it will take to complete (it is typically a little longer build time).

However, as you can appreciate, we are dealing with a larger piece of land and in some cases bringing services to the home can present a challenge.

As Stroud Homes Casey specialises in acreage homes, we will always take time to visit the site and provide a proper assessment.

This allows us to ascertain the challenges early on and provide the clients with solutions to deliver a smooth build experience.

What stand out features does the Stroud Homes acreage home design range offer?

The stand out feature is our true open plan living that offers a light-filled and spacious feel with a seamless connection to the outdoor living space.

We offer an option of a skillion roof design, this design creates a living space of grandeur proportions.

The Montego 450 Skillion Acreage Home Design

If you’re thinking of building an acreage home with Stroud Homes Casey, how many designs are there to choose from, and do you have a personal favourite?

Stroud Homes has over twelve different acreage designs, each offering different size options. My stand-out designs would have to be the Montego 450 (one of our most popular designs) and the Hudson 378.

The Montego 450 is by far the home that offers everything under one roof featuring open plan living with a strong connection to the outdoors, as well as the ability to be private with the zoned areas giving you privacy and peace.

The Hudson 378 is the ‘Chef’s delight’ that sends out a strong message of entertainment. This home also allows you to move the entertainment outdoors for that relaxed laid back feel.

The Hudson has been cleverly designed to incorporate and keep the family in mind. It’s one to definitely consider.

A selection of our favourite acreage home designs

How are issues like water supply a sewage connection usually handled with large acreage homes? Are there any designs with water storage tanks and/or household sewage treatment plants?

With an acreage home, most will tend to be connected to Septic Treatment Plants as there is no town sewerage available.

The council will determine what style of treatment plant is suitable according to the soil type.

(HSTP regulations may vary from state to state, please check with your Casey builder)

Most acreage sites will still have town water available at the front gate. The only item to look out for with the water is the distance that the builder needs to run the pipe underground.

In the rare case where there is no water, we will construct the home with the use of temporary water tanks.

Once the home is complete, it will need to be connected to water tanks which we can easily set up. The most common tank size required would be 2 x 20,000lt tanks.

(Water tank information may vary from state to state, please check with your Casey builder)
