Sydney’s Leading Custom Home Builder Shares the Secret to Success

A passion for quality custom design and build

Horizon Homes is often asked how we can ensure that all of the custom-designed homes we build meet the extraordinarily high standards we set ourselves. 

The answer is simply, “Our people and our values.”

We’re a small team of passionate professionals that treat each other like a family. In every one of us, there is a desire to create beautiful homes for families to enjoy. 

Excellence. Always.

When Denis and Esther Carroll started Horizon Homes they had a vision of creating a company that would become the most sought-after home builder in Sydney. 

More than two decades on, Horizon Homes is one of the best reviewed custom home builders in NSW. It remains deliberately boutique. Why? Well, the homes we create are unique to every family. That means we can never use quantity as our guide. It’s quality over quantity. Always. 

Over the years, Denis and Esther have built up a small, dedicated team of experienced tradesman, eager apprentices and committed office staff. It’s a team with a shared passion for creating homes of the highest quality.

Our two main supervisors – Danny Talimdizoski and Ruben Romao – have been with us for 26 years and 16 years respectively. That experience is invaluable.   

They oversee our carpentry teams, who are all on staff. 

When your reputation depends on attention-to-detail, having in-house carpenters – many of whom we’ve trained through apprenticeships – means we can guarantee excellence. (By the way, it’s the same with external suppliers. We’re careful about who we let onto your home building site. Our reputation is at stake. It’s why we align ourselves only with select tradespeople who demand the same high quality that we expect.)

The importance of relationship

The other key benefit of having all our carpenters on staff is the personal relationships that are built with you, our client. Read our reviews. You’ll note that many clients express their gratitude to our staff by name. That’s because when you engage Horizon Homes, you really get to know the people who are building your dream home. This also has the benefit of creating clear communication and building trust. 

Quality doesn’t just happen. It’s a result of deliberate decisions to employ, train and retain professional staff. It’s a result of carefully creating a culture of excellence. It’s a result of expertly managing the build process and opening clear lines of communication channels. It’s a design and build process that provides you with peace of mind and ends with joy. The joy of home.

What our clients say

“It’s hard to imagine your dream house. It’s better if someone just builds it for you. That’s how we felt with the house that Horizon Homes designed and built for our family. Horizon are a very professional, delivery oriented and detail focused company. Challenges with the site were dealt with effectively and on time... costs came in on budget. We would unhesitatingly recommend Horizon for your bespoke home design & build.”

“Our journey with Horizon Homes was wonderful. Our house looks amazing... we chose Horizon Homes because they said they could do any style, their display house had good quality and the team was so easy to talk to. The design process, choosing colours and finishes were so much fun... Denis and team gave us useful advice so our budget didn’t blow out. The construction process went smoothly and finished on time. We highly recommend Horizon Homes and we could not be happier. ”

“We wanted to build with a local family builder who would give us time to design our dream house. Denis had some fantastic ideas and advice and turned our dreams into reality. All building work started and finished on time and our supervisor, Danny had a level of communication that far exceeded our expectations. We were really impressed with the quality of the finishes, the attention to detail and the effort taken to handover a faultless home. Such a positive experience from an exceptional builder. ”

“Our experience with Horizon was supportive from start to end. As beginners in the knockdown and rebuild process, I felt they guided us through the journey. The quality of our finishings was excellent... I still love coming home to our house more than a couple of years later. Horizon were a delight to deal with and we got the house of our dreams out of it!!!”

“I cannot thank you guys enough for what you have done. Despite the restrictions of land size you have put up an amazing house. Your professionalism and just the way you conduct your business is by far of the highest standards.”

“We had a good idea of what we wanted in our new home and Horizon Homes made it a reality. The build time was just as they had forecast and no request big or small was too difficult. From the minute we met Denis we knew he was the builder for us. Denis was honest and up front from the beginning. We really appreciated this.”

“Horizon Homes is professional and efficient. Everything is documented and handled in a manner that is transparent, clear and concise. We have also found that their attention to detail from the signing of the contract to handover has been excellent. Our home is stunning and everything that we expected it to be. Horizon Homes comes highly recommended by us.”

“They took care of every step of the knock-down and rebuild, from the very beginning to handing over the keys… They prepared the council DA application… looked after the entire building process with exceptional quality, workmanship and keen eye for details… the entire team was honest and up front… We are so grateful that we chose Horizon Home to complete our new home project…”

“We were really happy with the service we received from Denis, Liam, Esther and the team. Communication at all stages of the project was top class. Our build process went smoothly, and importantly Liam has been really responsive to any requests we have had since moving in. I would highly recommend Horizon Homes and complement them on a job well done!”

“We built our first dream house with Horizon Homes. Denis and the team are very professional and helpful from the very beginning. Our house now is one of the signature on our street. We really enjoy the whole process with the team. And hopefully we can build again with Horizon Home in the near future!”

“Horizon worked with us to design the house we wanted. They listened to our brief and gave excellent advice and suggestions. We love the result. Our home is spacious, light-filled and maximises the potential of our downward sloping block. There were setbacks throughout the build, which meant that our house was completed behind schedule, but Horizon had good communication processes in place and we cannot fault the quality of the overall build.”

“The construction process was smooth, with regular communication keeping us abreast of what was happening... our site supervisor (Danny) was always approachable and addressed all our concerns to achieve the final product of a beautiful double story home in Concord that we are very proud of! We recommend Horizon Homes for their personal touch, ability to listen to our needs and the values they displayed during the project - Openness, Honesty and Transparency - and most of all, for keeping our confidence high during what is typically a stressful time.”

“After considering 50+ builders we eventually decided on a custom home with Horizon and are very happy with our choice. Denis and Danny were extremely helpful during the custom design phase, working within our budget to design our dream home... things ran on budget and schedule, and we were regularly updated regarding progress, so thankfully this was a stress-free period. The quality of build was excellent... we have been living in the house for over 6 months now and love it - we would definitively choose Horizon again and highly recommend them.”

“We built our first home with Horizon Homes... all the questions were answered and the whole build process ended up being very smooth. Our variation requests were happily accommodated. The whole team... were professional, friendly and easy to work with. The house turned heads and the quality of the build speaks for itself. We’ll unthinkingly hire them if we were to build again.”
