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?

Just like purchasing any home, and in any location, the main questions are; does this suit me, my lifestyle and is this within my budget?

There are many positives to acreage living; the space between neighbors, acreage living is generally quieter and wide acreage homes have that grand feel to them.

The cons are that everything is on a larger scale and a great example of this is the additional fencing and driveway length.

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

There are no unique challenges to building an acreage home. Like any new home build, there can be site-specific challenges.

These can include instances where the block has significant slope or where there are limitations or additional works associated with construction due to overlays or council requirements.

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

Some stand out features of our acreage homes are the great façade options, outdoor entertaining spaces, large kitchens and generous sized rooms.

There are a great range of designs, so whether your block has a view, or breezes to capture we will be able to find a design for you.

We have built acreage homes on blocks that have these services available and on blocks that have neither town sewer or water.

If your block does not have town sewer a HSTP system will be included in your quote and where no town water is available, water tanks will be included in your quote.
