Looking for an acreage house design to suit a large block of land?

Published on August 24, 2018

Have you been dreaming of having a tree change? Are you looking to get out of suburbia and into an area where you and your family can spread out?  Do you want to build your dream home on a large block of land?

Wide open spaces lend themselves, to a wide open house design.  So if you are looking to build a spacious family home on a large block of land, then you would want to start looking at an acreage house design.

Layout of an acreage house design

It is often the case, that when you have a large block of land, you usually are looking for a large home.  Most acreage house designs have at least four bedrooms and some even have five bedrooms.  You are probably also going to want  formal and informal entertaining areas as well.  Notwithstanding this, alfresco living areas such as wide open verandas and undercover terraces, will also be on your must have list.

When deciding on an acreage house design to sit on your block, it is important to consider a number of factors.   You will want to position the house to catch morning sun and afternoon breezes.  This usually means that you want the living areas to face north.

Usually you would have the front of the house facing the street.  However with a larger block of land you could position the house with the side facing the street.  This would be especially important, if your block is longer than it is wide.  You may also want to take advantage of scenic views, or it could offer more privacy from main road.

A selection of acreage house designs

When doing your research, you will find many different types of acreage house designs.  Some of these are based on a heritage or country style, whilst others will have a more contemporary feel.

New home builder Perry Homes has a number of acreage house designs, which would suit a range of wide frontage blocks:

The four bedroom Courthouse acreage house design provides broad appeal for those looking for a traditional home.  Making a grand entrance from the undercover portico separates two distinct living areas.

On one side is the formal living room together with the master bedroom suite and undercover Sala.  The main bedroom includes a luxurious ensuite, complete with separate shower and bath.  As well as this, the generous walk-in robe will delight every woman.

The other side of the entrance, leads to the large open plan informal living areas, including a media room. The three additional bedrooms surround the family bathroom and laundry.  Another Sala is accessed through sliding doors from the family room.

What makes this acreage house design really stand out is the beautiful undercover verandah.  Spanning the full width of the front of the home, this verandah is a minimum 1.5 metres wide and over 21.6 metres long.  Can you just see yourself enjoying the morning or afternoon sun lazing away on this verandah, with a good book or cup of coffee?

With a heritage or contemporary façade, the Glenreigh acreage house design is adaptable to meet the needs of any family.  There are three versions of this home, available with either four or five bedrooms.

Whilst the three designs have both formal and informal living areas, two of the larger homes, also include an extra Games Room.  This provides endless opportunities for formal and informal entertaining.

Right from the impressive entrance, the meticulously planned Summerhouse design, will surely captivate your family and friends.  With four spacious bedrooms plus separate study, there is enough room for a large family.

The three separate formal and informal living areas surround the sophisticated kitchen.  This is a room where your individuality can really shine, to ensure every detail meets your family’s needs.  From the fabulous walk-in pantry to the generous benchtops, this kitchen has been designed for the busy lifestyle of a modern family.

The two separate Summer Lounges which provide ample space for outdoor entertaining, are accessed through sliding doors from all the indoor living areas. This acreage house design will surely offer you, the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor living.
