At Carmel Homes, we understand every designed home is different because every home owner's needs and desires are unique. We know how important an investment your home is and guide each of our clients every step of the way, from custom design to the bespoke build, to make sure they are part of the process.

Why Us?

Carmel Home’s ultimate goal is to ensure a unique, luxury custom home for each client from start to finish. Whereas some builders make a business in building variations of only a few dwellings over and over again, each Carmel home is truly an original, just like you. Moreover, our service offering  as a custom home builder in Melbourne is unique and tailored specifically for each build and each client. At Carmel Homes, we walk the client through the full build of their new home and consider every detail.

It is only natural to love where you live. Regardless of whether you have been there for decades or only a couple of months, it is your home. It is also the centre of your universe and the scene of many of the best moments of your life.

So, what do you do if your family outgrows your current home?


If you want the benefits of a new home and the comfort of where you already live in Melbourne, you could plan a knockdown rebuild project. Here we look at exactly what this involves and the potential benefits this could provide.


Designing your new house can seem like an incredibly daunting task. There are a lot of decisions to make and little details to think about. You also want to make sure you do not miss anything and that everything is absolutely perfect.


The problem is, there is no such thing as perfect – particularly when it comes to home design. A home is an incredibly personal thing that should reflect the people that live there. It should suit their requirements, display their style, and fit with their lifestyle.


As such, instead of stressing over creating a ‘perfect house’, you should focus on what will make the property perfect for you. There are a few key personal considerations and design features you need to think about to do this. Here we take a look at what these are and how they can help you create your perfect home.

Of all the choices you need to make when planning a custom build, your builder is easily one of the most important. They will be the ones interpreting your vision of your dream home and helping you to bring it to life. They will also be responsible for creating one of your largest assets and the place you and your family will call home.

But picking the perfect custom builder can be a real challenge, particularly if you have not worked with one before. You need to know where to look for one and what you should be looking for in one. You also need to know what questions you should be asking and the warning signs you should be looking out for.

Hands on approach to building a luxury custom home

At Carmel Homes we believe that meticulous supervision is the only manner in which to build a truly custom home. We believe so strongly in this that a "hands-on" approach for all projects has become our building philosophy. While most builders delegate critical work to design teams and foremen, we (the owners) are present at the home sites daily in order to work with our tradesmen and ensure quality control. This superior level of attention is simply one advantage of engaging Carmel Homes as your builder. We take this hands-on approach all the way to mid – size townhouse developments.

Whether one home or 19 townhouses, our promise to you is a one-of-a-kind custom home designed and built with the highest level of design talent, personalized service and top-of-the-line building materials.

We believe that it is important for you to have a strong comfort level with your builder. At Carmel Homes we work diligently to create an environment that encourages communication from the initial stages of planning all the way to completion. This approach will ensure that expectations are set accurately so that there are no surprises.

Choosing to build a luxury custom home in Melbourne is about so much more than just opulence and extravagance. Luxury custom builders are usually true craftspeople who are committed to creating beautiful, functional spaces tailored to their client's requirements. They are also often creative thinkers who thrive on the challenge of developing unique designs and highly practical solutions. 

With that in mind, choosing a luxury custom builder can provide a range of benefits beyond just prestige. Here we look at what these are and why luxury custom builds are so popular.
