Acreage Home Designs FAQ’s

Why Choose a Custom Acreage Home?

If you’re looking to experience the tranquillity of Southeast Queensland’s beautiful Australian landscape then an acreage property close to nature and the CBD is the way to go. Acreage home designs are growing in popularity as people seek to escape the hustle and bustle of the city in favour of quiet hinterland and country landscapes complete with spacious and functional floor plan designs.

Acreage designer house floorplans are completely customisable ensuring they have something that suits everyone in the household. With ample space on the property comes ample opportunity to include any unique features you or your family members will enjoy such as an entertainers kitchen, butler’s pantry, indoor-outdoor living area, swimming pool, a home gym and more.

What are the Best Acreage Home Design Floor Plan Features?

When designing an acreage custom home build, there are a few key differences and inclusions you’ll want to consider when designing your floorplan planning. The major benefit of a custom acreage home design is the freedom of flexibility; but what are the major considerations in maximizing your block and custom home design?

You’ll want to ensure you are maximizing the orientation and natural landscaping of your block to create a more energy-efficient home that harnesses the natural elements. This is also essential for embracing the surrounding nature throughout your home, bringing the outdoors in with a carefully planned floorplan arrangement, and use of natural materials within the home and in the exterior façade.

There are also certain luxuries to consider in creating your floorplan. Maximising storage opportunities, allowing room for a butler’s pantry and larger kitchen, including a swimming pool and a home gym – all inclusions which can be completely customized to your lifestyle.

How Much Does It Cost To Build An Acreage Home?

In Brisbane, the Redlands, and South East Queensland, building a custom-designed acreage house can be a large investment, and the price can vary greatly based on a number of factors.

There are a number of considerations which will affect the cost of building your custom-designed acreage home including the location of your block, the size of home you wish to build, any planning or building approvals you may require, the materials used in the building process, any custom design features included, the physical conditions of the block, timeframe and supply chains and your choice of financing. At Leafe Designer Homes, we’d love to assist you in building your custom designed acreage home and can help guide you through the entire process.

Why Is Choosing The Right Builder Essential For Designing a Custom Acreage Home?

When it comes to building on an acreage or property, choosing an experienced and educated builder is essential. A professional builder can help you maximise your floorplan, interior and exterior designs and help create a natural flow throughout your acreage home design to suit nature and your lifestyle needs.

Ensuring these design choices are compliant with local and government regulations as well as adapting the design to suit the local environment including slope gradients, special and remote access requirements, and high wind or bushfire zones is an essential responsibility of your builder. A typical suburban home builder won’t be familiar with these particular circumstances, which are only present on acreage lots.

At Leafe Designer Homes, we are a specialist custom home builder Brisbane and we collaborate with you, our highly skilled draughtsmen, builders, tradespeople, and interior designers to research and design your acreage block. To ensure you have the right custom designed home for your chosen block, we take into account the land size, slope, vistas, solar orientation, prevailing winds and many other considerations.

Ready to Embrace Slow Living?

Acreage properties offer a unique opportunity to embrace a slower, more mindful way of life. With more space to spread out and enjoy the outdoors, there are endless possibilities for slow living on an acreage. A custom acreage home design can help you embrace the slow-living lifestyle:

  • More space to relax and unwind: Acreage properties have more space than traditional homes, giving you more room to relax and unwind. You can spend time gardening, reading, or simply enjoying the peace and quiet of the outdoors.
  • Less noise and pollution: Acreage properties are often located in more rural areas, meaning less noise and pollution, which can help you to reduce stress and improve your overall health.
  • More opportunities to connect with nature: Acreage properties offer more opportunities to connect with nature. You can go for walks, hikes, or bike rides on your property. Escape to nature simply by sitting in your backyard and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
  • A sense of community: Acreage properties often have a strong sense of community. Your neighbours may be more likely to help each other out, and you may feel more connected to your local area.

    If you are looking for a way to slow down and simplify your life, an acreage property may be a good option for you. With more space, less noise, and more opportunities to connect with nature, acreage properties can help you to create a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
