Carmel Homes is a family owned luxury custom home builder based in Melbourne.  With over 30 years of experience, we are proud of the reputation gained for the quality of our carefully constructed homes, and the high level of after care service we provide.

Carmel Homes was designed to be unique with a specific focus on the high-end custom home market. Our staff, organization, procedures and philosophies have been crafted around catering exclusively to the most discerning customers and building only the highest quality and most impressive homes. 

To those that have not had the chance, designing your dream home sounds like a lot of fun. Creating a space that is uniquely you and tailor-made for your family and your lifestyle seems like the homeowner’s ultimate fantasy. No more compromising, no more “putting up with”, no more “I wish it was like this” – just a clean slate and an opportunity to create whatever you want.

You have bought the perfect block and have some ideas about what you want and what you really do not. Now you just need to work out how to bring it all together and make sure that it is everything that you dreamed.
To help with this, we’ve prepared a dozen important questions to ask yourself before finalising your design. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we have intentionally left out the obvious ones (e.g., how many bedrooms do you need), but it should help steer you in the right direction and (hopefully!) allay some of your anxieties.

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 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.

Carmel Homes - your luxury custom home builder

" I long, as does every human being,
to be at home wherever I find myself."
Maya Angelou

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.

How Home Design Trends Have Responded to COVID-19

There is no denying the impact the coronavirus crisis has had on the world. In addition to the tragic loss of life, the restrictions put in place to slow infection rates have affected almost every facet of our lives.
One of the most obvious changes brought about by the pandemic is the extra time many of us are spending at home. For a lot of people, this has had a big impact on how they feel about where they live. It has also caused many to reconsider their living arrangements and what they want in a home.
These evolving priorities are reflected in the latest home design trends, many of which are a direct response to COVID. READ >


We are a builder that have created a reputation of pure luxury and quality after a generation of focusing on detail, detail and detail.  At Carmel Homes, we understand that there is more behind making your house into a home.  We understand that you only want the best for your home. Unfortunately, in most cases the best can come at a high price tag. At Carmel Homes we believe everyone deserves the best. That’s why we feature a prestige line of products at prices that won’t break the bank. Our focus on quality, efficiency, and service make us stand out from the rest as a leading builder of premium custom home extensions in Melbourne. We strive to consistently deliver outstanding results to our customers.

We have acquired a formidable reputation over the last 30 years, built upon innovative yet practical design, excellent customer service, quality of product, and speed of construction. All our work is project managed by qualified Building Project Managers and is backed by our extended 10 year structural guarantee.  We design and build all types of home extensions and additions, whether it’s Federation or Contemporary, ground floor or a whole new 2nd storey, we leave our customers with a premium finish and in a sense of luxury.

Choosing to build is a big deal. Whether it’s your dream home, a bespoke development, or a major renovation or extension, there will be plenty of decisions to be made and more than a little time and energy (not to mention money!) to be spent. 

It’s also a very long process. Getting from design to completion can easily take over 18 months. Throughout this time, you will need to call on the expertise of a wide range of professionals – but none more important than your builder.

In many ways, your builder will guide you through the construction process. They will be your eyes and ears on-site and help you identify and overcome any issues. They will also need to act on your behalf at certain times, liaising with your suppliers and managing all of your trades. 


With all this in mind, being able to trust your builder is critical. You need to know that not only can they do the job, but that they understand your vision and have your best interests at heart. You need to feel confident that they respect you, and even when you are not around, they will look out for you and act as if you were.


But with so many builders out there, and most of them seemingly providing the same services, how do you find a good one?
