Craig Garvey and Steve Harris have been colleagues and friends for almost 20 years. After successful careers in the residential building industry, the friends decided it was time to take their knowledge, skills and passion to the next level, so in October 2008, Botanic Homes was created.

In June 2011, Craig and Steve’s close friend and former colleague, Rob Bender joined Botanic Homes and completed the team of Directors.

Their vision was, and still is, to build cutting edge designs, deliver unparalleled quality and treat our customers as the number one priority.

In the past 5 years the Botanic Homes team has grown from 3 staff to over 30. They have built hundreds of homes across the South East of Melbourne and welcomed many clients into our growing family.

A word commonly used to describe Botanic Homes is ‘genuine’. This flows down from the Directors of the business through to all of the staff and is the essence of their culture. They understand how important it is to choose a builder you can trust and we make sure you’re supported through every step of the process. It’s this personalised approach that has their clients referring their friends and families to us.

Botanic Homes has no aspirations of being one of the biggest builders, rather their goal is to maintain the quality and personalised service which their business has been built on.

This service and expertise is award-winning with their Balé 4 design taking out the Best Display Home $250,000 – $300,000 in the 2013 MBAV Victorian Building Excellence Awards.

Inspired by harmonious Balinese resort living, the golden warmth of rich timber finishes and architectural balance is showcased in this signature style home. Gleaming timber floors are an enticing prelude to the magnificent open-plan living, sweeping past the elegant master bedroom with sumptuous ensuite and walk-in robe, 3 additional bedrooms and bathroom.

A dramatic cedar-lined pyramid ceiling in the family room highlights the allure of effortless year-round indoor-outdoor entertaining complemented by a meals area and large covered alfresco. Finished with a flamboyant flourish, the sparkling kitchen boasts broad stone benches and a generous pantry.
