Bellarine Peninsular Builders

Everything you need to know about building on the Bellarine Peninsula

The Bellarine Peninsula is the stunning region southwest of Melbourne, surrounded by the beautiful waters of Corio Bay, Port Phillip Bay, and Bass Strait. With its magnificent location, resort towns, laid-back living and views, it is an area in which many aspire to live.

Lifestyle and affordability are the major attractions of this stunning region. From charming coastal towns to beaches and surf communities; boutique wineries to a haven for fishing enthusiasts, the region offers relaxed living with plenty to enjoy in terms of cafes, restaurants, shops, and the outdoors. 

When you build your luxury home on the Bellarine Peninsula, you not only have the ultimate joy of creating your dream home on your chosen block: you also enjoy the many advantages of this quieter and (currently) more affordable option to the Mornington Peninsula. The Bellarine is a growing region where growth will be managed to prevent overdevelopment. As such, it is a highly-sought, exclusive area and very much the “next big thing” for discerning people seeking an alternative to city living. If you seek uncrowded, relaxed living within commuting distance of Melbourne and Geelong, you can’t go past the Bellarine for your new luxury home.

What to consider when building on the Bellarine Peninsula

Like anywhere else, building your luxury dream home on the Bellarine Peninsula requires certain considerations. These include the type of block you have purchased, whether it has views you wish to maximise on, its ideal orientation, and the style of home you wish to achieve. You’ll also need to incorporate issues including permits required, existing waterways, drainage, power supply to the site, and existing trees.

Desbo Building Group has the experience and superior insight to guide you through this process for a seamless building experience and a stunning outcome you’ll be justifiably proud of.

Choosing land on the Bellarine Peninsular
