What is an acreage home design?

You’ve chosen the rural lifestyle for the clean air, nature and peaceful surroundings. It’s important that you have the right home for your rural block so you can make the most of your relaxed lifestyle.

The secret is starting with the right design.

At Clarendon Homes, our acreage homes are beautiful open-plan single-storey homes designed by our team of expert designers to suit a range of block sizes from 20m+ wide to 30m+ wide. They are specifically designed to enhance the aesthetic of a wider rural block or acreage.

What size block will fit an acreage home by Clarendon?

Your block is usually considered to be an acreage if the total area is a minimum of one acre (or 4,047 square metres). The street frontage is usually much wider than a suburban block so it can accommodate a homestead style of home. An acreage block is usually found in rural areas which means a single-storey home would be a better design option to suit the surrounding landscape.

The good news is, you don’t need a whole acre to build an acreage home with Clarendon. Usually, a 1/4 acre (1000m2) level rural block is big enough for one of our stunning acreage homes. This means you can build a beautiful acreage home whether you have 1/4 acre, 1 acre or multiple acres.

If you’re not sure if your block is the right size for building an acreage home with Clarendon, visit a display centre near you to get advice from our experienced Sales Consultants.

And if your block is too small for an acreage home, we have a wide range of designs perfect for smaller blocks. Your sales consultant will help you choose the design that’s right for you.

What's an acreage estate?

If youre looking to buy an acreage or rural block, a good option is buying into an acreage estate.  These are a great option when you want the space and privacy of a rural block within a well-maintained community. These types of estates usually have all the services (water, electricity, septic) connected when you buy the block. 

Acreage estates often have building design guidelines so its a good idea to check what these are before you commit to buying your block. Some estates have guidelines that mean you have to build a one-off architecturally designed home and cannot go with a project builder, like Clarendon Homes, or there could be restrictions on types of building materials or home size.
