Better No-Cost Inclusions – That’s Our Promise!

by Carlisle Homes


There’s no smoke and mirrors when you build a Carlisle home – our huge list of luxury upgrades come built in, at no extra cost, and they’re available 365 days a year. Here’s exactly what you can expect.

Our Welcome to better campaign shines a light on the myriad of ways life is better when you build with Carlisle – and luxury, no-cost inclusions that come built into your new home are just one of them. 

We want you to love your home from the moment you choose your perfect floorplan to every day you and your family spend living there. And that means including superior inclusions ­– and more of them - in your fixed-price quote than any other Melbourne builder. Think luxury stone benchtops in your kitchen and bathrooms, energy-efficient features so you can run your home for less, premium appliances, high ceilings for more light and flow, and so much more.



Better upgrades than the competition

“Every day in your Carlisle home will be filled with luxury when better inclusions come as standard,” says Jessica Hodges, Carlisle’s Interior Design Manager. “Carlisle Homes’ inclusions are known to be comprehensive and generous, with a wide range of options available to suit different budgets and preferences.”

“Compared to our competitors, Carlisle tends to offer more standard features and fittings, as well as higher-quality materials and finishes.”

“We ensure our customers’ homes come with a range of luxury upgrades that matter to them, giving them better value, and quality inclusions throughout,” says Jessica.

With our latest Make the Move to More Luxury promotion for Affinity homes, for example, you won’t have to pay a dollar more to include stunning engineered timber floors, high ceilings, double-glazed windows, luxury Caesarstone benchtops, a butler’s pantry fitout, soft-close cabinet drawers, full-height tiling in your master bathroom for hotel-like opulence, crisp, square-set cornices for an architectural edge, and a beautiful timber garage door to give your home facade real wow factor.

A greener, cleaner way of life

All Carlisle homes are six-star energy rated, which means they are gentler on the environment, and cost less to run.

Every Carlisle home comes with a solar hot-water system with gas-boosted continuous flow, which uses the free energy of the sun to heat your hot water (with the gas booster kicking in during cloudy periods so you never run out).

From there, you can choose to upgrade your home with other eco-friendly features, such as double-glazed windows to control unwanted heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter, solar panels, and an electric car-charging station (and keep an eye on our limited-time promotions, as many of these eco-friendly features are often included!)

You can also now upgrade your Carlisle home to all-electric, which means you’ll never have to worry about rising gas prices again.


Enjoy inclusions such as European appliances, designer tapware, stone benchtops and solar hot-water system, plus more.

On-trend features you’ll love

“Our inclusions not only align with what our customers want, but the latest global design trends,” says Hodges. “And we’re constantly reviewing and updating them to ensure they deliver exactly what our buyers want and need.”

“We partner with leading, innovative brands who constantly refresh their product offerings – brands like Laminex, Caesarstone, Beaumont Tiles, and more. This means our customers are getting the latest and greatest in terms of product and design.”

“And we look far and wide for inspiration for our inclusions and design themes, scouring showrooms across the country for the best new products and innovations, and looking to social media and the world of fashion for upcoming colour and design trends so our customers can create a highly functional and fashion-forward home they’ll love,” she says.

Luxury 365 days a year with our standard & promotional inclusions

Our standard inclusions are the basic features and finishes that come with a Carlisle design, while promotional inclusions are additional upgrades that are offered for a limited time, or as part of a special promotion.

Carlisle’s 365 Standard Inclusions are included in the base price of your home – 365 days a year. These include European appliances, designer tapware, resort-style oversized showers, elegant kitchens complete with expansive island benches, and an H-class slab so your home is stronger and more secure.

Our promotional inclusions are limited-time, luxury upgrades included in your home at no extra cost. They can include everything from gorgeous facade detailing, stone benchtops, quality kitchen appliances and premium flooring, to high ceilings, opulent bathrooms, stunning laundries, and powerful and efficient heating/cooling systems.
