Karlsen Homes is a multi-award winning builder, specialising in luxury custom-built homes. Known for their outstanding workmanship, innovative design, and overall project excellence, Directors Sasha Stankovic and Arthur Samyia have been helping clients achieve spectacular results for 14 years.

“We cater to the custom homebuilding market;” Stankovic says. “We try to build the dream that our clients are looking for.” With a reputation for creating homes with exceptional quality using cutting-edge building techniques, Karlsen Homes strives to create homes that not only reflect the client’s style and personality, but their lifestyle requirements as well.

Karlsen Homes guarantees personalised service by working alongside the client with their experienced and committed team. “We employ the right people and we employ the right contractors,” Sasha says, “we have a plan of what we’re going to do, and how we’re going to do it, and how we’re going to take on any problem that should arise.”

One of Karlsen’s most challenging projects is also their most recently completed development; a full three-level home in excess of 1000 square metres, with a full theatre, gym, swimming pool, spa, and home office. “You name it, he’s got it;” Stankovic says, “lifts, several water features, and a specialised epoxy floor finish in the garage.” Karlsen has several projects currently underway; 4 located in Bella Vista, one in development at Tennyson Point, one in Putney, and one at Rhodes.

Since 2006, Karlsen has been the recipient of a number of industry awards and commendations, most recently achieving a finalist ranking in two categories of the 2014 Housing Industry Association Awards, Townhouse/Villa, and Townhouse/Villa Development, for their Glenview I project in Bella Vista, and a project in Putney as well. Previously commended projects include the company’s Pelliser I and Pointe I homes, which won Custom Built Home ($600k – $1 Million), and Townhouse Villa of the Year respectively in the 2013 HIA Awards. One of Sasha’s personal milestones was the company’s winning of Best Overall in the Hills district twice, and achieving First Place in New South Wales for Townhouse Development.

As Housing Industry Association builders, Karlsen Homes can count on the HIA to provide them with important industry news and updates, as well as their support in the instance of a wide variety of challenges. Karlsen has also established strong partnerships with a number of high profile suppliers, including Clipsal, AGI Insulation, and Harvey Norman Commercial.

Arthur graduated from University of Technology in 1988 with a Bachelor of Building and has been a licensed builder now for 15 years. He has worked with many leading building companies before deciding to channel all his experience into his own business. Sasha started in the building industry as a carpenter, and with his extraordinary attention to detail and keen eye for architectural design, completes this successful partnership. Between them there is over 25 years of building industry experience and an unwavering commitment to delivering aspirational home solutions for their clients.
