Choosing the right floorplan to suit acreage living

Making the move to an acreage property is primarily due to the lifestyle. For many, it’s about being surrounded by beautiful scenery with a level of privacy, peace and space that is difficult to find in the city.

Acreage living is becoming even more enticing due to the many delights owners get to enjoy:

  • Postcard worthy views from every window
  • Spectacular clear, starry nights
  • Fresh air and clean breezes
  • Calming sounds of nature
  • Complete privacy

The shortlisted benefits above are just some of the reasons there has been a massive increase in demand and has led many to leave suburbia behind.

With vast space to play with and no lot size restrictions, the number of suitable home designs could be overwhelming. We’ve grouped our popular country-inspired home designs to show you how different designs can provide different solutions to acreage living.


City style meets country comfort

The Montana series is reminiscent of a sprawling country estate, with a generous family and dining area in the centre of the home that naturally brings people together. A simple yet elegant design, the Montana will suit any family seeking a simple, rural lifestyle.

Serve fresh iced tea from the modern kitchen with a walk-in pantry or enjoy some quiet time in the separate living area. There’s plenty of storage to keep your home uncluttered, including large linen cupboards, a walk-in pantry and a large walk-in wardrobe, as well as the option for a home theatre.

The Montana is about giving you the modern lifestyle you love; with the comfort you deserve.
