What do you think of when you hear the words 'country home'?
Big open spaces, fresh air, amazing views, birdsong, starry skies and a welcome sense of peace and tranquillity, all enjoyed from the comfort of your own rural hideaway.
Country homes have an inherent charm that’s easy to fall for. Homely, comfortable and welcoming, they conjure up visions of the quintessential Australian homestead, the classic country manor, the traditional farmhouse and the barn-inspired retreat with all the mod-cons.
And you don’t have to have a sprawling block either. Many of today’s country home styles can be comfortable on a standard corner block.
Maybe you’ve grown up in a country town and are planning to build a new home for your own family, or maybe you’ve got your eye on a tree-change and want something to fit your new lifestyle among the gumtrees? Or a holiday home for those get-away-from-it-all breaks. Something that’s still big enough to cope with the kids and grandkids when they descend for the holidays. Or maybe you just want to move a bit further out of town into a semi-rural spot with a bit more breathing space.
Whatever the inspiration, building on a bigger-than-average block gives you the freedom to build what you want – both in terms of size and style.
And if there’s one residential builder that knows its way around a country home, it’s Plunkett. After all, the country home has been a Plunkett staple for more than 100 years.
