Indoor outdoor living – create your dream backyard

Indoor-outdoor living: create your dream backyard

Landscaping, outdoor kitchens, fire pits and lounges and outdoor pools are just some of the ways you can create a dream backyard for your new home.

Including these features in your new home construction right from the start is the most economical and efficient way to create an outdoor area you’ll love. What’s more, you’ll be enjoying your beautiful outdoor living space right from the day you move in.

Stroud Homes Southland specialises in creating your dream backyards. Our team can help with the entire process, making it a simple and stress-free journey.

Stroud Homes offers customers an extensive range of outdoor living build options to help make your home fully complement your lifestyle.

Alfresco areas

All Stroud Homes house designs include ample, well-designed outdoor areas – often referred to as ‘alfresco’. These areas are typically undercover and integrated with the free-flow of the home.

Seamless, large sliding doors leading to the alfresco allow easy access to the outdoor living area to enjoy all year round. The addition of a pillarless feature corner door can create the ultimate indoor outdoor entertaining experience.

Alfresco areas can include any number of great outdoor living options such as:

  • Extra lighting (If you have an outdoor kitchen or BBQ area, you’ll want to make sure the food preparation area is well lit with downlights or something similar.)
  • Fireplace or firepit
  • Ceiling fans
  • Pizza oven
  • Heat lamps or heaters
Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoor Kitchens

If you love cooking and entertaining, then you’ll want to treat yourself to an outdoor kitchen. At Stroud Homes, we’ve made sure our outdoor kitchens complement your outdoor lifestyle!

  • Gas lines and connections
  • Optional cabinetry is fully 100% waterproof – well suited to outdoor use. Hose it down!
  • The firewood space also suits a standard bar fridge – sold separately!
  • Power points are included under the BBQ



Outdoor Entertaining Fireplace

Fire pit or fire lounge

A fire lounge or fire pit is a great addition to your new home, allowing you to enjoy our great outdoors well into the chillier times of the year.

When integrated into your new home landscaping, outdoor fireplaces extend your home and available space from inside to outside. With the subsurface gas connection and full drainage system included, you can move in, relax and start toasting marshmallows without a worry.

Even if you don’t actually turn on the flames, this beautiful sitting area can be used any time of the year.

Swimming Pools

Yes, we can source you a pool for your new home. If you’ve dreamed of including a pool in your new home right at the start is the best time to add it. Including the cost of a new pool in your new home building contract makes financing easier and all council applications and approvals will be handled by us.
