Victoria’s Surf Coast is among Australia’s most liveable locations: affordable, stunningly beautiful, close to city centres but retaining coastal charm and a relaxed lifestyle. From young families to retirees, the region offers much to everyone in richness and rewarding lifestyle experiences.

The Surf Coast is comprised of the townships of Torquay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Lorne and, further inland, Moriac and Winchelsea. It is renowned for global attractions including the easternmost point of The Great Ocean Road, Bells Beach, stunning rainforests, exceptional beaches, waterfalls, and thriving farmland. The region is flourishing, with low unemployment, safe communities, great retail and tourism. If you seek an amazing quality of life, the Surf Coast delivers on its promises.

What to Consider when Building on the Surf Coast

You need to speak to your chosen builder from the outset when you wish to build your dream home.  You will need to incorporate many factors when it comes to the planning and execution of your luxury home build. This begins with the orientation, slope, and other unique qualities of the block you have purchased. From here you need to consider the style of house you wish to build, its inclusions, and other issues such as required permits, existing trees and natural watercourses, drainage, power supply to the site, and potential additions such as fences, pools, rainwater tanks, solar panels, and more.

At Desbo Building Group, we have the experience, expertise, and insider know-how when it comes to all considerations of building on the Surf Coast. We offer advice on everything from your dream-home design to your land selection and every single aspect of the build to the end result you deserve.

Choosing land on the Surf Coast

Your home is your biggest investment and there is nothing as satisfying as customising every aspect of it. This is only achievable when you build from scratch and the first step to realising your vision is choosing your block of land.

You need to consider not only where you wish to live, but also which type of block suits the home of your dreams – including size, orientation, views, landscaping options, and your lifestyle needs.

Desbo Building Group is very proud to take you through every single step of your building journey. Whether you seek our feedback and guidance before you select your block, or come to us having purchased, we ensure your brand new luxury home exceeds your expectations when you build with us.
