Our Story

Bartlett Homes is a local Maitland family business who has been servicing Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and Lake Macquarie
areas for over 20 years. At the moment, Bartlett Homes build around 30 homes a year and employs local contractors which supports the local economy. Tony and Alison Bartlett, the proprietors of Bartlett Homes are both actively involved with the business and make a point of meeting you, even if it is just to say “Hello”. While it may seem “old fashioned”, Tony and Alison like to let you know that they are approachable and stand behind the homes they build.

A Testament to the quality of our homes are awards we have won over the last few years, in 2013 Bartlett Homes was the winner of the local
“Special Purpose” and the National winner of Custom Built homes. In 2014, we were a finalist for Best Display home, which is quite an achievement
since our first ever display home was built in 2014. In 2016 we won the HIA Hunter Region award for best Display Home between
$350,000-$425,000 for our latest display home- The Shearwater- in Harvest Estate, Chisholm. While the awards are something to be proud of,
our real pride comes with the volume of return clientele and word of mouth clients, which make up a significant volume of our business.

Fixed Price Tenders

We understand that people want to know the real building costs upfront, Bartlett Homes provide a fixed price tender which means there are
no unexpected costs. Our Tender inclusions list is quite detailed and lists exactly what our standard inclusions are. The only way that the tender
price can increase is due to unknown site costs such as rock or poor soil conditions. At tender stage, Bartlett Homes will do a visual
site inspection to give us a good idea on what to expect.


Bartlett Homes is not just a “project” home builder. We allow you to include anything you want. In fact, Bartlett Homes can offer you a complete design service which means your home is truly unique. You might think that this inflates the price, but the fact is, it makes very little difference at all. Like for like, the overall price is on par with a standard home, the only real difference is, your home is, well truly your home. While we do have standard inclusions, we also allow people to choose their own finishes and items in their home. If there is a particular item you would like, let us know and we will source it and provide that in your tender.
