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

What financial services are available to support the building costs 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.

What inclusions can I add to help me create my dream home?

The Inspire and Affinity Collections offer an array of home design choices, from premium to luxury inclusions. Even in a small house, you can still install elegant, designer finishes like tiles, tapware or cabinetry or come home to the kitchen island bench of your dreams. 

Choosing a more spacious design? The possibilities are almost endless! Enjoy more space with a stunning open plan design and fireplaces, or include another room for an office or additional bedroom. You could even add a bathroom or two! Plus, you can really make it your own with designer finishings that give the whole home a sophisticated and luxurious feel. At Carlisle Homes, we can help make it happen. Visit us today.

How long does Carlisle Homes take to build homes?

Generally, the average length for a new home build is between 7 and 10 months and consists of three phases: pre-site, construction, and warranty. With smooth build times, the process of making your dream abode is made efficient yet comprehensive.
