It makes sense... But, if your home network already provides DHCP, and
if you don't mind the (hopefully mild) risk to your "home" network, you
might just set up all your virtual servers to bridge to the network the
host lives on and call it a day.
You also haven't exactly mentioned which VM technology you're using. So
far it looks like it's KVM or VirtualBox but I can't tell which you've
got for sure.
