We chat to Melbourne North’s Sales Consultant about building on acreage land with their Stroud Home division.

How common is it to build your home on acreage land in your area, and who are the typical clients opting for an acreage home design and lifestyle?

Acreage Home designs and construction is very common in this area due to the vast availability of land that boasts wide frontages and panoramic views of the surrounding ranges.

A typical client is somebody looking for a larger style living and family area, and perhaps looking to have a separate master suite from the remaining bedrooms.

Our varied designs offer everything from separate living areas, media room, child’s retreat and even studies. Everything a new dream home could want and so much more!

What are the main questions you should ask yourself before choosing to build on acreage land?
  • Can an acreage home be built in the area I want to build in?
  • Are all utilities available? How far do the utilities need to be to reach my new home site?
  • What do I need to look for in the initial stages of looking at purchasing a block of land?
  • What requirements are needed in my area? Septic System? Bushfire Management? Planning Permit requirements?

What are typical requests with these types of projects?

Typical requests would be homes that take advantage of views and include large entertaining areas and living space for the whole family.

Childs Retreats are also a common request with the larger floorplan 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?
