Rural luxury

From farmhouse to country retreat, building a home on acreage or a large rural allotment where your nearest neighbour is a mile away is a dream come true for a lucky few.

While everyone’s tastes are different, people who look to build on a larger property often surround themselves with lifestyle features such as a swimming pool, a tennis court or equestrian facilities, or a machinery shed to run a hobby farm with a level of sustainability to extend the use of the property even further.

From traditional farmhouse designs that capture the classic features of a true Australian homestead with open spaces, high ceilings and traditional verandahs to more contemporary low maintenance solutions, Comdain Homes has been custom designing and building family homes on Melbourne's outskirts for more that 25 years.

The design brief for a country home should consider building on the block to take advantage of the terrain and views, with consideration to future use of the property, including accessing various outdoor areas and activities such as sheds, out houses and rain water tanks to fully maximise the development potential of the land. Opportunities such as insulation and solar control are critical and have great implications to the comfort and wellbeing inside the home, as well as the access to power, power generation and water harvesting.

A perfect example of a well considered modern country residence is this recently completed Comdain Homes custom built home in Whittlesea. With its sleek cantilever roofline creating deep eves over massive double glazed windows, this rural property takes full advantage of its extraordinary surroundings. 

Set on a 'T' shaped footprint, the home features rendered walls, the latest Colorbond roofing and natural timber inside and out to create a striking modern family home with clean architectural lines.

With clever design features and the added advantage of high performance insulation and hydronic heating throughout, this home is open, light and breezy in the hottest summer months and warm and cosy in winter!

If you're thinking about building your dream home on a rural block of land, Comdain Homes has experienced architects and designers who can make the most of your land so you can have a custom built luxury home that is uniquely yours.

Client Testimonial

“We can remember visiting the site almost every day and being excited as each stage progressed. The trades people Comdain used were friendly, approachable and always willing to help and suggest alternatives when we were stuck. Their attention to detail was obvious and they spent a lot of time to make sure everything comes together. There was something I had not seen for some time, ‘pride in their work’”

– Carlo & Rita
