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

How much does it cost to work with Carlisle Homes on a modern house design?

The answer largely depends on what customisations you would like. On average, the base price of our custom homes will range between $227,900 and $565,900.

However, additional features, luxury options, house size and whether you’re choosing from single or double-storey homes will all affect your price. Either way, once you know what features you’d like to include, we will offer you a fixed-cost quote, so there are no surprises during the process. We have also partnered with Loan Studio to support you through the process of acquiring enough finance to fund what is likely to be one of the most significant purchases in your life.

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.

Where does Carlisle Homes build?

We offer our custom home building services throughout Geelong and Melbourne. However, our knockdown rebuild services are limited to particular suburbs. Check our service area guide and input your postal code to determine your eligibility.


How long does it take Carlisle Homes to build homes?

The actual process, from start to finish, may last between 7-10 months. Your exact time frame will depend on the specifics of your brand new home. Below are the main phases of our building process, broken down for you to see.

The pre-site phase may take anywhere between 10-12 weeks. This is the beginning of the building journey, but it shouldn’t take endless hours. We finalise your new home design and ensure you’ve got the plans in your hand for the perfect home. We will also start the process of collecting loan approvals and necessary permits.

Then begins construction. This phase lasts between 16-24 weeks and should end with the keys to your new home in your hands.

As you move into the 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.

Once this has been completed, the process comes to a close.

Still curious about each step? Check out our build process and timeline, laid out in detail for our happy customers.

Is there a way for me to monitor the build process as it unfolds?

Carlisle Homes prioritises the happiness and satisfaction of its customers, whether you’re first home buyers or this is not your first time around the block. That’s why we have provided our customers with a brand new tool: Carlisle Connect, which is interactive, virtual and allows you to know every part of the process right there at your fingertips.

With this interactive app, you can monitor the progress of your build as it unfolds, access various resources like user guides, monitor your financial milestones, and check out any applicable manuals and warranties.

What financial services are available to support the building of my new home?

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.

Our in-house construction finance specialists will support you every step, from which loan suits you best to signing on the dotted line. They're mortgage experts and will consider your family's needs when finding the right lending opportunity for you. The process is easier because their experts ask probing questions and show many loan options side-by-side.
