A knockdown-rebuild is the perfect solution if you adore living in Glen Waverley, but you’re fed up with your dated, too-small home – and our specialist team is here to help you every step of the way.

If you’ve had your eye on the Melbourne property market, you’ll know the south-eastern suburb of Glen Waverley is booming, with the average price of four-bedroom homes currently around $1.6 million. It’s easy to see the appeal – less than 30 minutes’ drive from the CBD, Glen Waverley offers great schools, open green spaces and a vibrant, multicultural restaurant scene, making it a haven for families, professionals and retirees.

On the downside, the 1970s brick and weatherboard homes typical of the area leave much to be desired for modern buyers. Dark, dated and awkwardly laid out, they offer little of the light, space or liveability today’s homebuyers want.

If your family is straining at the seams in a time-warp, too-small home in Glen Waverley, it can be tempting to cash in and move to one of the area’s new estates. But if you’d prefer to stay in the suburb you love (or buy into it) and capitalise on your property’s value, there is another option – knock down your current home and build a brand-new, contemporary design with stunning good looks and all the mod cons.

At Carlisle Homes, we’re the experts in knockdown-rebuilds and can help you create your perfect home in this popular suburb. Choose from over 100 floorplans, customise your home’s details to suit your lifestyle and family needs, and lean on the expertise of our dedicated knockdown-rebuild team to bring your vision to life.
