The Hensley Park Homes story


At Hensley Park Homes, we design and build a range of classic country homes that combine contemporary floor plans with timeless country style. But more than this, we provide you with peace of mind.

With almost 40 years of experience in the building industry, the expertise and depth of understanding of country living and building is increasing. The family business began as a small carpentry enterprise that has grown into a specialised builder of country homes that offers absolute quality and premium customer service right across country Victoria.

The approach to construction sets us apart from the competitors. Each home is built to strict specifications with detailed supervision to ensure we would be delighted to live in every home we build.  Only qualified and experienced tradespeople are employed and the whole process is closely monitored by the senior management team.

There’s also difference in the detail. Our country homes have a focus on value, quality and energy efficiency, with extra features that you won’t often find in a country home – high ceilings, generous room sizes, plenty of storage and quality finishes. And you can choose from a range of flexible home designs that offer plenty of opportunity for that personal touch.

As a relatively small company, our business relies on client satisfaction. So we all want you to be delighted – from the first contact through the building stage to relocation, after-sales service and beyond. That’s why many new clients come to us after hearing from their friends, which is the best possible recommendation.

But don’t just take our word for it –  Here’s what our customers are saying about us…

An eye for detail…

We had never built before and were mindful of the horror stories which are all too common particularly when we reside in Melbourne and the home was being built about 90 kms away near Ballarat.

We referenced checked HPH by speaking to some of their customers which included a walk through a home in Daylesford. They all said that the price you signed up for was the price you paid. We found this to be exactly the case with our pricing holding firm for over 12 months whilst our planning issues were sorted out.

We could not speak more highly of the HPH team as we found them all to be ethical, incredibly patient with an eye for detail and nothing was too much trouble right through both the design and site construction phases.

We have had a great experience with HPH and we have ended up with a quality home we would happily recommend Hensley Park Homes to anyone.

Really love our new home…

My husband and I really love our new home and we have received many compliments regarding our house – how it fits so well in the surrounding environment. We truly recommend Hensley Park Homes to anyone who is looking for a genuine and professional building company.
William & Vivian Webber

High regard…

We have a high regard for the people at Hensley Park Homes. The staff have been friendly, competent and professional at all stages of our build including planning, pre sale, sale, factory construction, onsite construction and follow up.

Ken & Mary Pryor

Even better than our high expectations…

When considering Hensley Park Homes, our concern was a lack of knowledge of the company and its financial security as small and less well known.

Our fears dissipated after we went to Hamilton to view the factory and most importantly our customer rep Justin was invaluable at making us feel secure in our choice of company to build with throughout the whole process .

Building with Hensley Park has been a fantastic experience. All our dealings with the company have been helpful and amicable. We couldn’t recommend your company more highly.

We are absolutely delighted with our house, even better than our high expectations.

Mr & Mrs Wardrop

It is a great concept and an even better quality product…

It was quite daunting to build a house to begin with, regardless of who builds it.

The answer to my concern was the comfortable and passionate attitude Lester had towards both the company and the details. We found Lester a pleasure to deal with and if it had not been for his passion about the company, I would still be procrastinating. In all honesty, we were just looking at Hensley Park homes out of interest, after not being satisfied with the local display homes on offer. If he had not been so approachable and helpful, I would have opted not to build at all.

It is a great concept and an even better quality product. I cannot express how much I love my new house, and the effort the team has put in to making it my dream home. As you may be able to tell, I cannot thank Lester enough for all of his help in all aspects from planning to colour choices. Everyone who sees it is as impressed as I am with the quality and design.

Our dream was coming to life…

We initially approached Hensley Park Homes with ideas for a home that we wished to build.  After some innovative changes, made in conjunction with the professional staff there, we settled on our home design that was based on the Hensley Park Homes, ‘Hawkesbury’.

After the design was completed and plans drawn, Hensley Park Homes took over! Our home commenced, and within a short time, our dream was coming to life.

The most astounding concept of this whole experience was the time frame in which schedules were met and the ‘no hassle’ approach to getting exactly what we wanted, without the effort!

We have currently been in our home for nearly 6 months. Family and friends are amazed at the workmanship, quality of both the interior and exterior of our home and the overall presentation, that makes our house, our home.

The Hensley Park Homes Team are craftsmen in the art of home building, and each member that we worked alongside with, did their utmost to make our building experience one to cherish. We would highly recommend Hensley Park Homes because we just love our new home!

Mr & Mrs Plover

We sat back & enjoyed our experience…

We went through court for eight years for a dodgy builder so we were extremely hesitant to build again – Kelvin made everything so easy for us that our bad experience is a distant memory.

My husband was the most difficult to convince but as soon as he met Kelvin & Meryl his mind was put at ease & we sat back & enjoyed our experience so much we can’t wait to do it again.

Mrs Suhan

I feel like I have lived there forever…

I began looking at a Hensley Park home a few years ago. Last year I decided the time was right so had a look at the current floor plans and was instantly attracted to the Mitchell. Upon closer inspection it was exactly what I wanted; a large spacious living area that provided wonderful but different vistas from every window, with all modern conveniences, 4 bedrooms and a library/study.

The Mitchell with its many French doors (7 sets in mine) is perfect to provide views of the gum trees that surround it, including the 150 year old (plus) Gum that provides dappled shade in the afternoons, ideal to stroll around the veranda that spans over 90% of the house.

Another feature of the Mitchell is the large Library with its floor to ceiling windows and French doors providing further vistas to wonder at, whilst warm and cosy inside.

I have been in my house for only a couple of months, but I feel like I have lived there forever; put simply, I Love it! Love the Mitchell floor plan and love that I went for a Hensley Park home

Mr Lewis

It is so light and bright inside…

Building with Hensley Park Homes was completely stress free and easy.

We hadn’t built before and had heard all the horror stories, so we did our research and decided Hensley Parks unique way of constructing homes was the way for us, and we weren’t disappointed!

We chose the ‘Hunter’ design as we have a young family and the open plan layout allows me to work in the kitchen area while still being able to see what my son is up to in the living room.

It is so light and bright inside and the verandah and deck are just the icing on the cake!

All the Team members made the process simple, from design to colour choice.

Our experience before, during and after building has been fantastic and we highly recommend Hensley Park Homes”.

Mr & Mrs Chapman

The house is cosy…

Dear all at Hensley Park Homes,

Well, after two weeks in our beautiful new home and after weathering the storm last week, the unpacking is now over and we are so pleased with what you have created for us.

The house is cosy and weather tight and is all and more for what we imagined! Your professionalism was outstanding, nothing was ever a bother and everything was attended to promptly with great advice included.

You have made us a home to be proud of.
