Amazing home building experience

We built our house with Carlisle EasyLiving and our overall experience with them has been really great. The best part was that most home designs came with all the inclusions that you would normally require to live in a house, unlike other builders. The house was complete within 3 months, without compromising on the quality of the build. If I happen to build another house, I will not look for any other builder than Carlisle.

Positive experience with a reliable builder

Our experience with Carlisle is very positive so far. The moment we stepped into their display home, we knew it was the perfect house design for us, that was also within our budget. We are thankful for the team and support assigned to us - they're very patient in answering all our questions. Overall, the team from Carlisle delivers well and we are grateful that this experience has been very good and smooth for us.

Carlisle Homes redefined perfection!

From A to Z, Carlisle took care of things for me very well. I had complete peace of mind having them build my first home & I knew I was right! The colour selection process was smooth and the sales rep was very helpful and cheerful. I received a very high class build and after-build support was great too. I'd build with Carlisle again without a doubt!

Frequently asked questions

Will I be able to monitor the building process?

Yes! Carlisle Connect is our own online interactive tool that allows you to monitor the process of your house being built while simultaneously accessing things like user guides, warranties and manuals. You can check out your financial milestones as well. It’s a digital space meant to keep you in the loop, so you’re always sure exactly what phase we’re up to.

Where does Carlisle Homes build?

While we can build architecturally-inspired homes in most suburbs throughout Geelong and Melbourne, our knockdown rebuild service is limited to specific suburbs in Melbourne. We’re dedicated to expanding our services and want to help you how we can.

Check out our list of service areas and input your postal code to see what we can do for you.

What sort of inclusions does Carlisle Homes offer?

Our Inspire and Affinity Collection homes come with an extensive range of premium and luxury inclusions that can make your home uniquely yours. Inclusions enable growing families to customise their homes how they choose, splurge on European appliances, enjoy designer tapware, elegant kitchens, expansive island benches, and so much more.

How long does creating a Carlisle Homes luxury house design take?

Generally, the average length for a new home build is between 7 and 10 months and consists of three phases: pre-site, construction, and warranty.

Pre-site is when you finalise your home design, sign contracts, and acquire loan approvals and permits (with Carlisle Homes’ assistance if you choose).

Then there’s the construction phase which lasts between 16-24 weeks. You can keep up to date with the building process through our online interactive app, Carlisle Connect. This phase ends with your new home’s keys in your hands.

Finally, the warranty phase begins. As you move into this next stage of home ownership, we put you in charge of the warranty process with the introduction of our new Home Care App.

Our Home Care app enables you to raise any warranty requests you may have, at a time and place that suits you. Use your computer or your smart device to submit items with photos so we can guide you through the warranty process.

There’s no need to make an appointment. No pressure to remember all your questions at once. Use the portal at any time you wish, from 14 days after handover of your new home.

How much does it cost to buy one of Carlisle Homes' architectural-style home designs?

On average, our architectural-style homes will range between $227,900 and $565,900. We pride ourselves on making luxury affordable while never skimping on quality. Reach out to us if you have any questions regarding cost. We also provide a fixed cost guarantee, so there are no surprises on the final price tag of your home build.

How can I get the best financial advice to support the creation of my new home build?

Our in-house construction finance specialists provide our clients with the financial expertise they need. Bringing a new home to life is one of the most significant financial decisions you may ever make in your lifetime. We’re confident that we’re working with the best financial advisors in the country to help you compare hundreds of loan options to find the perfect one that gives you peace of mind.
