Building your own home is an incredibly exciting experience. It’s an opportunity to create an aspirational yet functional space for yourself and your family that works perfectly for your needs.

Here at Achieve Homes, we’ve worked extensively with first home buyers across NSW, ACT and VIC to realise their vision, ensuring optimal design for purpose and value for money. We believe in creating real homes for real people – dream spaces that not only look appealing from the outside, but are well-designed and practical, day-to-day.

We offer a range of affordable, pre-designed house plans for stylish living that are suited to you and your individual lifestyle. Unlike volume builders, our house designs come with a host of customisable options – many of which are included in the contract price. This means you can put your own touches to the design to make it unmistakably yours. After all, isn’t that the biggest perk of building your own home?

Here is a selection of our most popular designs for first home buyers, ranging from three to four bedrooms. Each style comes with a choice of customisable façades to perfectly suit your taste. Choose from classic, contemporary or Hamptons-inspired styling, or perhaps even add a verandah for the perfect finishing touch.


Our single-storey Kingston home design is perfect for couples or small families, offering three bedrooms, a separate bathroom and WC plus an ensuite, a garage and alfresco area, with a total of 176.5sqm indoor living space.


Offering all the great benefits of the Kingston but with a slightly different layout and larger indoor living space, Nadi centres around an interior corridor. Three bedrooms, a master bathroom with WC and an ensuite, a garage and alfresco space come together to make the perfect first home.


The four-bedroom, two-bathroom Alexandria design is ideal for families, offering a generous 203.7sqm of single-storey indoor space plus a garage and alfresco living. The flowing layout centres around the heart of the home – an open-plan kitchen and family area.



The fabulous four-bedroom Colombo offers the same benefits of our Alexandria home design, but with a different layout across 197.5sqm of indoor space. It’s simply a case of choosing which design works best for your family’s lifestyle!


The 202.8sqm Marrakesh features four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and an alfresco area on the side of the house rather than the back, which you may find works with your chosen block of land. Our team are always available to consult when it comes to working out which layout will work best on your property.


Also offering an alfresco area on the eastern side of the house is the four-bedroom, two-bathroom Granada, coming in at 197.5sqm of indoor space. The master bedroom with ensuite sits at the heart of the house, along with the family and dining area.

In addition to the façade, there are lots of other opportunities within our custom homes to customise the design and make it your own. In the kitchen, everything from cabinet doors and handles to designer appliances and benchtops can be selected to your taste.

In the bathroom and ensuite, tiling is a great way to add your personality to the space, which you might opt for at half-height or full height. Custom vanities, inset basins, stone benchtops and bespoke fixtures are all options, while a shower niche within the cubicle doubles as a stylish accent and seamless storage solution.
