Acreage Living

An acreage is a special place to establish your new custom home. Acreage living affords a quiet relaxed lifestyle with room to roam. Its a place to build your dreams, raise a family, or pursue your personal hobbies.

Choosing and developing your acreage lifestyle requires careful consideration of your dreams.  Views, trees, topography?  Privacy or community living?  Horses, hobby farm, or just wildlife?  Hobbies:  gardening, playing fields, birdwatching, etc.?  Intensively landscaped yard or natural low maintenance?

It also involves thinking about the following:  How much time are you willing to devote to acreage living?  Is proximity to schools and amenities important?  How much time are you willing to devote to commuting to work and other activities?

In addition it involves matters like wells, cisterns, sewage systems, gas, power, telephone, and extended driveways.  Maintenance of these systems, garbage collection, and snow clearing are additional things to factor into the equation.

Country Rose Homes helps to address all your interests and needs specific to acreage living in the selection of the lot, in the design and construction of your new custom home.  We will also help with answering questions about acreage living.  Most of the owners of Country Rose Homes have or are currently living on an acreage.
