The Luxurious, Low-Maintenance Home You Need To Keep Living The Life You Want

If you’re like most people approaching retirement, your family has grown and left home. And it’s time to trade in your large, family home for something that suits your changing needs. Something with future-proofed features that keeps you comfortable, safe, and independent in later life. Things like:

  • Wider doors and halls that give you easy access to every room
  • An oversized hobless shower with thoughtfully positioned handrails that keep you steady as you bath
  • Somewhere convenient to park your caravan or campervan between adventures
  • Easy internal access from your garage so you are always sheltered no matter the weather
  • A waste-high washing machine platform so you can do laundry without bending
  • Energy-efficient design that keeps you comfortable all year-round while saving you thousands in power bills
  • Low-maintenance, easy-clean features so your home stays pristine without much care or cost
  • And of course, no stairs!

What Future-Proof Features Should You Include In Your New Home?

In many instances, you only get one chance to include future-proof features in your home. Because the cost and inconvenience to retrofit after you build can be impractical and even impossible (like trying to widen doors and halls).

Sadly, many people downsizing miss out on important future-proof features because their builder (or architect) attempts to modify a generic design. As a result, they end up overpaying for some features that are unnecessary (or even unsuitable), and compromising on other things that will become more important as the years go by.

Like many people looking to downsize with a future-proofed custom home, perhaps you are…

Worried your home won’t be suitable (or safe) as you age

and want a builder with the knowledge and experience to help you future-proof your home so you can enjoy years of comfortable, independent living.

Nervous your home won’t feel like you (and will be sterile and bland)

and want a builder who takes the time to get to know you and match every design detail to your lifestyle, personality, and preferences.

Concerned that what you really want will cost too much

and want a builder with the experience to help you save in some areas (like earthworks), so you have more to spend on special features and finishes you’ve been dreaming about for years.

Afraid the price will change after you sign the contract

and want an honest builder who gives you a transparent, fixed price and includes everything in the contract, so you’re not surprise by unexpected bills.

Concerned you won’t have enough time and emotional energy

and want a builder who manages everything, guiding you systematically through every step so it’s enjoyable and stress-free.

Worried you won’t be kept informed

and want direct access to the owner of the company (not a salesperson) so you always know what’s happening with your home.

Concerned your builder may be financially unstable

and want a dependable builder with a solid reputation and sound financial base so you can feel confident you’re in safe hands.

Afraid your home may look nice but have hidden defects

and want a builder with meticulous attention to detail (in frame and finish) to ensure it looks amazing and lasts a lifetime.

Lots of couples looking to downsize have these exact concerns and questions. That’s why we’ve developed a Free Discovery Session to share our 50+ years of experience and give you the information you need to get the future-proofed custom home you want.


How We Help You Get The Luxury, Low-Maintenance Home You Want

(And Enjoy The Whole Experience)

Over the past 50 years our family has built more than 130 homes for families and retirees in the Central Coast region.

Unlike other builders who attempt to modify a generic, catalogue house, we design your home from a blank page. We take time to listen to your vision, ask thoughtful questions to help you clarify your ideas, and share advice (including future-proof features) from 50+ years of experience to refine the design until it’s exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.

And while other builders catch your attention with misleadingly low prices (that exclude tens or even hundreds of thousands in extra costs like earthworks, driveway, fencing etc.), we give you a fully transparent, honest price that includes absolutely everything with no hidden surprises. And we’ll help you get more house for your money, saving on things that are less important so you can have all the special features and finishes you’ve always wanted.

Then our own family tradespeople (our four sons) and their skilled team will handcraft every detail of your home with precision and pride. Sticking to a strict schedule to ensure your home is ready on time and on budget.


What Other Edwards Family Homes Clients Say About Their Future-Proofed Custom Homes

We’ve been privileged to help more than 130 Central Coast families get their dream home over the past 50 years. Here’s what some of them say about their home and experience working with the Edwards family.

Why Central Coast Retirees Choose Edwards Family Homes For Their Luxury, Low-Maintenance Custom Home

Building a future-proof home is exciting. It’s the chance for you to get everything you’ve ever wanted in a home – things that empower you to live comfortably, safely, and independently for years to come.

But it can also be a stressful time. And mistakes can be costly and cause long-term disappointment.

Here are some ways Edwards Family Homes are different from other builders. And what we do to ensure you get the exact future-proof home you want and enjoy your building experience.

Future-Proofed For Years Of Comfort And Convenience

It can be hard to know what design features you may need in your home in the future. Sadly, most builders (and even architects) don’t give this a second thought. They simply deliver a generic (or slightly modified) house design that is difficult (even impossible) and expensive to modify down the track.

Our design team follows a detailed checklist of more than 20 items to ensure your home suits your current lifestyle and is future-proofed for your changing needs.

Designed For You And Your Unique Block Of Land

Sadly, most homes are the result of a generic design, created for a generic market, based on a generic block of land. That’s why they look so common. Why they are so dark and stuffy inside. And why they never quite feel like the home you really want.

We take time to get to know you as a couple. To understand the vision you have for your home. And to help you get clarity about what you really want. Then we share advice from our 50+ years of experience to refine your ideas in a design that matches your unique personality, provides the ultimate in comfort and convenience, and brings out the best (views, privacy, light, breezes) in your land.

Guidance To Get More House For Your Money

Most builders (and even architects) take a generic plan and try to modify it for your needs. This means you end up overpaying for things you don’t want, and compromising on things that are important to you.

Our designers are different. We start with a blank page. And create every detail to give you the exact house you want. We’ll show you how to save thousands in areas that are not as important, so you have more to spend on the things you really want. You can save thousands by opting for different materials on your home, so you can invest more on your front façade for improved street appeal. And by optimising your home for your block of land, you can save thousands in earthworks. These are just a few examples that can free up tens of thousands for you to spend elsewhere in your home.

No Surprises Or Stress

Too many homeowners think they know what they are getting. But are surprised (and disappointed) when their finished house is missing so many of the things they really wanted. Things they saw in the display home, read about in the catalogue, and discussed with their builder or salesperson.

We listen carefully, ask clarifying questions, and take comprehensive notes to ensure we understand exactly what you want. We include every last detail in the contract (with exact prices). And we supervise every step to ensure you get the exact house you want, with no disappointing surprises or stress. You’ll enjoy the process and love the end result.

Finished On Time (We Will Even Organise To Pay Your Rent)

Read any online forum and you’ll see how many homeowners suffer months of uncertainty due to building delays. This can cost tens of thousands in extra rent. Not to mention the stress of uncertainty.

Our meticulous process (including supply procurement and trade scheduling) ensures we finish your home on time. We’re so confident, we are happy to organise to pay your rent during the build.

Fully Transparent Fixed Pricing (With All The Details)

Sadly, many people become excited by the low (misleading) prices they see advertised by other builders. It’s not until after they sign a contract that they realise they will need to pay tens of thousands extra for things they thought were included (things like earthworks, retaining walls, driveway, landscaping, power, NBN and more). And due to poor project management, some of the selections they fell in love with after spending hours choosing (benchtops, taps, tiles and more) are no longer available and they need to choose again – often at much higher prices.

Your contract with Edwards Family Homes is complete and accurate. You will know everything you’re getting and precisely what it will cost. And our fastidious project management ensures all your selection orders are locked in early, so you get exactly what you want without paying a cent extra.

Deal Directly With The Owners

When you choose a large builder, you’re just one of twenty, fifty, or even a hundred or more customers. Your point of contact is often a commission salesperson who only really cares until the contract is signed. And even smaller builders are often so busy (and disorganised) you can’t get answers to your questions (or even phone calls or emails returned).

When you choose Edwards Family Homes, you deal directly with the family who owns the business. Get immediate answers to your questions (you’ll have our mobile phone numbers). Follow every step of your home through live photos and weekly updates on our building portal. You’ll always know what’s happening and feel part of your building journey.

The People On The Tools Own The Company

Many builders aren’t even qualified tradespeople. They attempt to assemble and supervise a team of people to perform tasks they can’t perform themselves. It’s no wonder the results are so haphazard.

All key tradespeople in our business are part of our family and co-owners in the company. They take pride in every nail and screw and build your home as if it was their own -- structurally sound and flawlessly finished.

Decades Of Experience And Financial Stability

Building more than 130 homes on the Central Coast over the past 50 years has earned Edwards Family Homes a reputation as a trustworthy builder. Our proven process and team of skilled tradespeople (most of whom are family members and co-owners of the company) ensure you receive a first-class home with a financially stable company.
