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

Is there a way to watch the construction process unfolding?

Absolutely! Carlisle Homes has always prioritised customer satisfaction above everything else and, as such, has worked hard to create a way where you can keep up to date with your build step-by-step. Enter Carlisle Connect, our custom-developed interactive app that allows you to access every step of the build process as it unfolds, user manuals, warranties, and guides, and you can even view your financial milestones. This way, you’ll be guaranteed to be kept in the loop until you can move into your new home.

Where does Carlisle Homes offer its services?

Carlisle Homes builds across Melbourne and Geelong. However, our knockdown rebuild service is limited to a few select suburbs in Melbourne. We are Melbourne’s no. 1 builders for a good reason, and we can’t wait to get started on your latest contemporary design.

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

What are Carlisle Homes' knockdown rebuild services?

If you have outgrown your old home, you can opt to demolish and rebuild an entirely new contemporary home on your land. When you knock down an old house, you can replace it with a home design that you’ll love for an affordable price. We only offer our knockdown rebuild services in some select suburbs in Melbourne, so be sure to familiarise yourself with our service area map. 

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 much does it cost to build a contemporary home design with Carlisle Homes?

Carlisle Homes prides itself on affordability without sacrificing luxury. Our contemporary house plans have a single goal in mind; to create a perfect home that you and your family will love and that fits within your budget. As such, you may find that our contemporary house designs will range between $263,900 and $685,900. 

If budget is a concern, talk with us about financing options and our fixed costs. We can help find the perfect solution for your budget.
