Coastal, Holiday & Bach building specialist

Make the most of Southland’s natural beauty and stunning coastline, rivers and forests

Make the most of living in Southland by investing in a new coastal holiday home or bach.  With Stroud Homes you can go beyond the traditional bach and invest in a modern, fully-featured home for you to spend your hard-earned vacation or to rent as an investment. 

Whether you’re looking to build on the coast or in one of our stunning inland locations, Stroud Homes Southland can help you find the right home for your land and budget.

Coastal, Holiday & Bach Home Designs

We offer a number of designs that are perfectly suited to coastal living.  These fully featured house plans have been created especially to enhance views and to bring the outdoors in. During the colder months, our designs are warm and inviting.

With a range of façade options, you’ll be able to give your holiday home the relaxed feel you’ve been seeking. Our skillion, coast or mountain façades, in particular, evoke a more laid back coastal/informal feel.

Free site evaluation

If you have land or a section that you’re keen to build on, Stroud Homes Southland can help you with all aspects of your build. We offer free evaluations that are invaluable in helping you decide what design will work best on your land and give you an idea of some of the considerations when building on your land.

A site evaluation gives you the key information needed to understand exactly what sort of home you can build on your land and what level of site works are required e.g. how much soil will have to be moved, the amount of slope of the section, if retaining will be required, and what’s achievable in terms of our home designs and other dwellings, such as granny flats, garages or sheds.

This information can potentially save you thousands in site costs and will give you a realistic idea of the end result – your dream home.
