Big sky dreaming: the beauty of building on acreage

When a weekend escape to the country doesn’t feel long enough you know it’s time to consider building your dream acreage home on your own block of land. Where better to look than the Hunter Valley in beautiful Regional New South Wales. From the early retiree, eager to enjoy a tree-change to the growing family looking for the benefits of a rural lifestyle without the responsibility of a farm, there are plenty of great reasons to build an acreage home in this area.

Explore the Hunter Valley

Singleton acts as the gateway between the Lower and Upper Hunter Valley and offers country life with big city convenience. The Singleton area is a great place to explore for a lifestyle change or a home-based business venture both possible if you were to build an acreage home

An easy 2.5 hours’ drive from Sydney and only an hour’s drive to Newcastle, Singleton sits at the end of the Hunter Expressway and the junction of the Golden and New England highways. Agriculture, mining and the Defence Force provide the majority of employment but growing niche markets include award-winning wineries, cuisine and thoroughbred horse breeding. With thriving retail and tourism sectors Singleton offers the best of both worlds. 

On the outskirts of Singleton there are parcels of land with big views just waiting for your acreage house plans to be transformed into a new home construction. Browsing the real estate pages it’s possible to find a cleared block of land with town water, phone, NBN and power available, ready for you to build your dream home.

Small villages with big vistas

Under the wide Hunter Valley skies it’s possible to find the perfect location to build an acreage home in the rolling hills between Singleton and Maitland. The villages of Paterson and Vacy, Branxton and Greta are also essential hubs for the local communities. These are all worth exploring to find a vacant block of land to build your dream home in a picturesque setting with all the benefits of small town community to enjoy.

As you drive closer to Maitland you’ll find outer areas like Lochinvar & Louth Park provide a rural acreage feel with the ease and convenience of close proximity to a big town. 

Wine country dreaming

For those with big dreams to build an acreage home with views of the Broken Back mountain range they need to get out and explore the areas of Broke, Pokolbin and Rothbury. While there is the attraction of a quiet country life there’s also the lifestyle benefits of world-class wineries, hatted restaurants, golf resorts, concerts in the vineyards. So many additional reasons to host friends and family! Located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, wine country land is at a premium but a large block of land to suit your budget can still be found for keen and persistent buyers.

Looking further afield

If you’re prepared to travel further there are more affordable options and more diverse views to be found in the Hunter Valley. Your rural escape could be hidden away in Congewai or Millfield on the way to the historic town of Wollombi.

With so much National Parkland in the Hunter Valley nature enthusiasts and bushwalkers are spoilt for choice. It’s here they can imagine their dream home built on a block of land within easy access of beautiful bushland. An outdoor entertainment area with a fire pit would make the perfect addition to their acreage house plans.

Build an acreage home to meet your needs

Taking the time to imagine your rural lifestyle is important when considering acreage house plans. For some people it’s all about the view, making the most of the best aspect with big windows to let in sunlight and beautiful vistas. For others, a priority is the double or triple garage and space for ‘big toy’ storage or to house a workshop.

You’ll want to enjoy having plenty of room to host friends and family and have the option of both indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. You need to envisage the aesthetics as well. Do you imagine yourself living in a contemporary or country style home? 

With all these questions to answer you’ll be researching house builders in the Hunter Valley who know how to listen to your ideas and make the most of your particular block of land and the surrounding landscape.
