Building Acreage Homes

Acreage Building Experience

With a lot of rural land available in the area, the team at Stroud Homes Fraser Coast and Stroud Homes Bundaberg is experienced in building custom homes on acreage land for their clients.

The Stroud Homes range of acreage house plans caters for a great variety in looks as well as layouts, and all plans are designed to bring in the outdoors so you can be more connected with the surrounds and the land you’ve decided to build on.

“The Stroud Homes acreage plans have been designed to be light and breezy with free-flowing family areas that bring the outdoors in,” says Stroud Homes Fraser Coast co-owner and Sales Manager Aletha Walters.

“With the Stroud Homes acreage designs, you do not need to compromise your natural surroundings for comfort.”

According to Aletha, the typical clients opting for an acreage home design in the area are families and those moving from interstate.

Benefits of acreage living

And the benefits of building on a large block of land are many.

The sheer size of the lots leaves room for pretty much any design in the Stroud Homes range, and all with plenty of space for a pool, shed, or children’s play equipment.

Aletha also tells us the land prices are more reasonable the further away from town you get and the locations are generally quieter and more uninterrupted.

On the flip side, site clearing can be expensive when building on acreage, if the site hasn’t been cleared already.

Meeting Challenges of Acreage Builds

The team at Stroud Homes Fraser Coast and Stroud Homes Bundaberg has built many individual family homes, and a lot of them have been large acreage houses.

Some challenges with previous builds include wet weather and access restrictions, however, Aletha says owners are generally creative enough to provide great access to ensure they have all weather access. “There are very few challenges as rural builders. We are local country people so we understand the attraction to living in a rural area.”

But before opting for an acreage home, there’s a list of things you’ll need to consider.

The main questions you should ask yourself are:

  • Does the block have sewerage and water connected?
  • What is the scrub and bushland like around the block? Will this put the home in danger if a bushfire came through?
  • What clearing, if any, needs to be done? How much is this likely to cost?

Stand-out designs

Stroud Homes have 28 specially designed acreage homes to choose from, and a wide range of facades. These designs are award winning and allow the client to tweak to make it their own, or trust the team as award winning builders!

“The designs have been carefully planned to maximise the use of the morning and winter sun into the home, all the while blocking the harsh western sun from areas such as the alfresco and living areas,” says Aletha about the stand-out features of the acreage design range.

“We have beautifully styled wide-frontage acreage homes in a number of styles including Hampton, Colonial, Mountain, Skillion, Coast, Portico, Federation and Classic.”

Aletha also tells us all Stroud Homes designs can be accompanied with water tanks and home sewerage treatment plans, with prices of both factored into the quote price so they can be allowed for in the budget of the client.

“We are a one stop shop,” says Aletha.
