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

Can I monitor my beach-inspired house build as it unfolds?

Absolutely. Carlisle Homes has developed its own Carlisle Connect portal for this very reason: an interactive digital app that allows you to take the process into your own hands. We are ready to do what it takes to ensure you feel involved with every step of the build. This app can also view things like financial goals, warranties, manuals, and user guides.

Where does Carlisle Homes build its beach house designs and floor plans?

Carlisle Homes is happy to provide its services throughout the Melbourne and Geelong areas. You can check our service area map to see where we offer our new build, house & land or knockdown rebuild services. Note that while we build homes throughout Melbourne and Geelong, our knockdown rebuild services are limited to specific suburbs. You can input your postal code in the service area map to determine eligibility.

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 it take to build a beach-inspired house with Carlisle Homes?

The length of a build may vary depending on the overall complexity of the build, the surrounding environment, materials and more, but we pride ourselves on our fast build times. The process can be broken down into three: pre-site, build, and warranty.

Pre-site is the phase where we finalise your floor plan, ensuring all the elements you want are in place. If you’re interested, we’ll help you acquire any necessary loan approvals and building permits during this period. 

Then comes construction. This will close when you have the keys to your new home.

Finally, the warranty phase begins. As you move into this next stage of home ownership, we put you in charge of the warranty process by introducing 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 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 the handover of your new home.

Do Carlisle Homes' beach house plans allow for natural lighting?

While the answer depends on the beach house designs you choose for your final build, the answer is a resounding yes: our beach-inspired homes offer a full range of open plan options with plenty of natural light and airflow. Your home design is yours; our experts are here to help you choose and narrow down your options, but we want the final product to feel like a “home” - not just a house you picked off the market.

What kind of financing options does Carlisle Homes offer?

We're dedicated to the highest level of customer service and satisfaction, which is why we only work with companies who feel the same way about their clients. That's why we have in-house construction finance specialists. Not only are they at the forefront of the home loan industry, but they also provide support to their clients during what may be one of the most crucial and sometimes confusing financial decisions of their lives.
