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

Where does Carlisle Homes build?

You can get our custom home-building services if you live in Geelong or Melbourne. But only certain suburbs are eligible for our knockdown rebuild services. To determine whether your suburb is one of them, check our service area guide and enter your postal code.

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

We have in-house construction finance specialists; they're leaders in the industry when it comes to home loans and other financial services. Plus, they can help support you through what is one of the most significant financial decisions of your life.

They offer plenty of lending opportunities and will work with you directly to find the best mortgage for your family's needs. Their experts ask the right questions and compare many loan options side-by-side to help make your decision easier.

What sort of inclusions does Carlisle Homes offer to help me build my dream home?

With a home design from the Inspire or Affinity Collection, you'll have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to premium and luxury inclusions. Whether you want to upgrade your appliances, install designer tapware, or create an expansive island bench in your kitchen, we've got you covered. So come see us today and let us help turn the home of your dreams into a reality.

How long does it take Carlisle Homes to build homes?

Generally, the average length for a new home build is within industry-leading build times 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. 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 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 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.
