North Facing House Plans

Take advantage of more natural light with Carlisle Homes’ north facing homes


North facing homes are considered desirable in Australia because, if the main living areas of the home (and the garden) face north, these homes will maximise the amount of natural light they receive as the morning sun turns to a west sun by evening.

Greater solar access will allow north facing block homes to get the most of the winter sun during the colder months, even when it’s at its lowest point in the sky. Carlisle Homes is happy to help you choose a north facing house plan for your dream home.

We boast a wide range of north facing house designs for you to choose from, helping you to design a property with the ideal orientation for the most natural light possible. Choose us as your builders in Melbourne - we never fail to deliver.

Still, north side homes can reap the benefit of the most solar access and generally get the most sunlight throughout the day - even in winter.

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!

What are Carlisle Homes' knockdown rebuild services?

Have you outgrown your old home? Perhaps it no longer feels like a true “home” to you and is just a house. Or maybe you’re expanding, and your former property is too small to house every family member. 

We’ll help you demolish your old home and build up a new, well-positioned home atop the previous one. This enables you to avoid having to undergo any risky renovations and eliminates the entirety of the moving process. Check our service area map to determine your eligibility for this offering.

How long does it take to build a Carlisle Homes north facing property?

Carlisle Homes does its best to ensure that every step of the process is straightforward and transparent to our clients. Three phases are included in the building of our house plans:

The pre-site phase

The construction phase

The warranty phase

The pre-site phase is the finalising of your house plans. During this time, you can choose the look and finishes you think will best fit your new home. You may also be asked to sign some official documents during this period. In the meantime, our team will acquire any necessary loan approvals and permits.

The next phase, construction, you can monitor this process through Carlisle Connect and expect to have the keys to your new home in your hand by the end.

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.
