We received excellent advice for site selection from Carlisle even before we had signed the contract. The colour selection process was very efficient, well managed and our design consultant made us feel at home and answered all our newbie questions to the best of our satisfaction. Very Highly Recommended Builder!
An enjoyable colour selection experience
We just had our colour selection appointment and our Design Consultant is so knowledgeable in her field that everything went smoothly.
Her expertise on color combinations have helped me and my husband to integrate our color choices. Otherwise, a long story (lol).
A very good and enjoyable experience so far.
A big thanks to our Design Consultant.
Virtual Color selection with Carlise
We did our color selection last week online and had a great experience with the color consultant. She was very helpful and gave some great recommendations. The session ran very smoothly online and appreciate her knowledge and willingness to help. Overall had a great experience with all the information provided before and during the color selection appointment. Our CLE also provided an additional visit to review our color selections in person once restrictions were lifted, which is highly appreciated.
However, we have feedback in general for C...arlisle. -Carlisle Security and CCTV options are limited and expensive. The builder should be able to provide the configuration or do the wiring for the clients to install better devices. - Carlisle not extending basic services like adding drains to taps outside the house. This is a basic addition with other builders. - Termite protection provided was basic configuration and no way to upgrade.
Great Experience With Sales , Colour & CLE Consultants
We decided to go with Carlisle Homes as their house design suited us and also their staff (especially Sales consultant ([Name Removed]), Colour Consultant ([Name Removed]), CLE ([Name Removed]) had been nothing but outstanding. They had been helpful every time we had a question before our appointments. Haven’t had any issues with Carlisle Homes so far and highly recommend them if anyone is planning for build.
During our research, we were able to verify the quality of the products they offer and how they tailored to our needs while meeting our...estate specific guidelines and requirements. Even during lockdown, we had an outstanding sales consultant, [Name Removed] who has made this process a breeze. we are also very impressed with [Name Removed]'s innovative ideas about designing the homes with various colour combinations she presented it to us during our virtual appointments . [Name Removed]'s immediate response to any of our inquiries was always commendable and we appreciate all the advice she has provided explaining each of the colour process in a very clear and direct way. From the very start we were overwhelmed with the idea of building, but [Name Removed], [Name Removed] & [Name Removed] has made the process smooth sailing from the start even during the COVID situation. We are very excited for what's coming next. Our experience so far, working with the [Name Removed] (Colour Consultant) was always encouraging and exciting. Moving forward with our CLE ([Name Removed]), we are confident that this process will be positive. We have also been so pleased with the way all the consultants have been helpful, passionate about their work and willing to always listen and support us throughout our journey. We couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. The team has been honest with their advice and made our journey a pleasant one so far. We are grateful for all they have done for us so far and all the hard work they put in. We look forward for what is yet to come with our build and can’t wait to meet the other wonderful people who will help us along the way.

Good Virtual Color Selection Process
This is our first time building and so far building with Carlisle Homes has been a great experience. Our contact at the display houses was great and helped us throughly through the inital process. Our design consultant at our colour appointment was also very good and though through zoom it was difficult she made it work very well. She was accomodating and very patient and helped us through our selection. Her advice throughout the appointment made it much easier to make certain choices and even after she has answered continued to answer any questions we have. A very pleasant experience thus far.
Great virtual experience
We are just at the colour stage. Due to pandemic, we had to attend the virtual colour appointment instead. I have been zooming / video conferencing for almost a year now due to pandemic, and do not prefer virtual appointments, especially for $700k spend. However, [Name Removed] made it really easy for us to select materials and colours. It was a seamless experience.
Good Experience with Carlisle Homes
We chose Carlisle Homes to build our first home and the experience has been great so far. We are nearing the end of construction and everything has been managed pretty well. We are always informed about things going on and hoping the build quality of the house is as good as the staff.
Good color selection experience
As a first-time building process, it was a good and nice experience, apart from being a bit fast for first-time building, so I thank [Name Removed] as she helped us and made it easy with her advice and help.
Upgrade prices, in general, was high than our expectation, so we had to minimize it as much as we can.
Carlisle Build has been awesome so far!!!
What can I say this being our 3rd build and Carlisle Homes has been the most impressive thus far! From the initial sales consultation to speaking with our client liason executive and now the colour selection the whole process has been seamless. Our colour selection consultant especially has been very helpful, professional and she has given great advice and explained things thoroughly although our meeting was all virtual. Looking forward to the tender appointment and contract signing and finally the build itself. I wouldn't hesitate to speak about Carlisle Homes again in future. Very highly recommended!
Such a great experience starting my journey with Carlisle Homes !
The colour appointment was seamless. I was so impressed. This will be my 5th build (4th with a volume builder) and the service was outstanding. [Name Removed] was amazing and her professional advice was a huge help to me making some decisions. Even down to the offer of providing Morning Tea and Lunch along with coffee. Those small touches definitely stand out above the rest.

Great experience for first home buyer.
The build was well managed and it was built very quickly. Updates on the build could have been more frequent but understandable given the current climate. The consultants were able to answer any queries I had along and after the build. Workmanship was excellent, only small defects was identified during the inspection stage of which all were resolved in a timely manner. Overall a great experience for a first home buyer, and I would use them again if I were to build another property.
A pleasant experience overall
Overall build experience with Carlisle is positive and we enjoyed our journey. We just moved into our new home and enjoying our new phase in life. Whole Carlisle team was very approachable starting with our [Sale Consultant] from sales office who listened to all our requirements and helped get most of our minor changes in plan without any issues. Our CLE's were very helpful.
Our Site supervisor [Name Removed] is exceptionally great. From our first meeting to our final inspection SS displayed the highest level of professionalism while being f...riendly and approachable. His attention to detail and been fantastic and we felt very confident through the build that only best quality trades have been working on our house under his supervision. Even though there were some hiccups during our build process due to site restrictions, [Name Removed] managed to handle everything in the best possible way and made sure the build timelines were on track and that handover was at right time. Overall it is a great experience so far. However I would say it is still a journey with Carlisle until at least our 3 month warranty period is finished and expecting we settle well into our new house with any maintenance defects addressed in a timely manner.
We have just begun our process with Carlisle Homes with building our dream home and just had our virtual Colour appointment due to the COVID restrictions.
At the start we were highly nervous on the outcome of the same.
However, our consultant who assisted us with our colour and electrical appointment was highly professional and patient which made the process very easy.
She provided us with lot of guidance and assisted us in making the right choices.
We are also very happy with out CLE who has been very prompt in responding to our queries and needs.
Looking forward to a quality home with Carlisle Homes!
Our Spectra appointment was on 7/6/21. We were taken through the entire process in an efficient and professional manner by our consultant throughout the whole appointment, which lasted from 8.30 a.m. until almost noon. The consultant offered her expertise and opinion unreservedly, when requested, throughout the entire process. Thank you.
Zero help after handover
Carlisle were very friendly during the sales process and construction phase.
Afterwards, the warranty team has been of no help with remedying a leaking pipe or providing a basic warranty document for the ducted heating system they installed.
In fact, they actively lied and said I did not maintain my sink and I was to blame for the leak!
The reviews here are positive because Carlisle rewards people who give them.
I would not recommend anyone build with Carlisle for this reason.
Questions & Answers
I am building a house with carlisle in Affinity range. Got the brivis ducted heating inclusive in my plan. Will the thermostat controller for heating be changed to network controller like "Nest". If so what should be the procedure pls. Thanks.
They did tell us there was an option to upgrade the controller with wifi kit ( for my memory around $700), which means you could use app to control the heating and cooling remotely.
Congratulations Josan. and thank you for choosing Carlisle to build your brand new home.
What a great question but a little tough for us to answer here. It all depends on what house you have chosen and promotion you have signed up for.
We would like to advise you further so if you could contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org we can assist you further.
I would like to get more details about the current "5% Builder Deposit" promotion. On Carlisle's website and initial quote it doesn't mention the complete promotion details. On the top of it when I asked the sales consultant multiple times I was advised of something completely different every single time.
1. Let's say if the quote total or final contract amount is 250K and I make $2k initial deposit. The 5% of 250k is $12500. Now $12500-$2000(initial deposit)=$10500.
$250K-$10500=$239500 Does it mean that I've to pay $239500 for the house?
2. The amount which is required at base stage, Is it the remaining 5% of 250K or 239500?
I'm waiting for your response.
Thank you for your question.
As per our Easy Living contracts, a variation will be raised at contract signing as a credit for the balance of the 5% deposit based off your base house price.
If you could please contact us directly at email@example.com so we can look further into your particular job that would be appreciated.
Can you answer it here, so others know too?????
I am considering the Sheraton Deluxe design, one thing i noticed is all WIR are through Ensuite bathroom. Anyone here built this design? Did it cause any inconvenience? Would you recommend to add additional door to the WIR and additional exhaust? Is there any option to change floorplan to be able to access WIRs for the bedrooms directly/ seperate instead of going through the bathroom?
I'm building the Vaucluse and I added sliding doors to the WIR's so it can be added if you want. You just have to pay extra
Thank you Raymond. The vaucluse deluxe has separate entry for bathroom and WIR for the ensuits. However Sheraton deluxe has the WIR designed such that it can be only accessible through the bathroom. I am interested to know if that causes any inconvenience e.g. does clothes or belongings become mouldy due to the steam from bathroom after shower or any other problem from the usage of the bathroom and toilet. Has anyone faced problem who built this design and what is recommended? Would there be any option by Carlisle Team to change the floorplan so access to WIR can be separate? Thanks again.
A lot of their designs have the main bedroom next to ensuite as well but I'm guessing it shouldn't be an issue as long as there is good ventilation in bathroom (and there is exhaust above shower and steam should go straight to ceiling). But for peace of mind though best to ask them that question.
