Welcome to Serenity Homes,
Adelaide's Leading Luxury Custom Home Builders.

Serenity Homes are Adelaide’s first choice for custom home designers and builders. We bring your dream home to life. We are a boutique builder. This means we build a small number of masterpieces every year. Our focus is on making your home remarkable. 

If you are looking for cheap, mass-produced housing, we are not it. If you are looking for perfectionists seeking to build an exquisite life-long dream, then you should choose us.

Every home to us is different. Our quest as builders and custom home designers is to take your ideas and hopes, and build them into your perfect custom home

Our focus on quality is first class. As a result, we are highly awarded. More importantly, we are rewarded by the smile on your face, on the magic day that a Serenity Home, becomes your home.

Our background

We are a family business, owned by Gary Barnes and Jennifer Barnes. We are owner-operated and driven by a strong determination to be simply amazing. We have long serving loyal staff, and carefully select our tradies based on their desire to be craftsmen. Gary will work on your project to completion, and takes personal pride in bringing your dream to life.

Historically, we began our business building custom homes on sloping site blocks in the Adelaide foothills. After years of careful attention, we are now experts in creating charming homes on your block, no matter the size.

How custom builders create your dream Adelaide home

As custom home builders, there is more attention to detail required than an "off-the-plan" builder. We begin with a consultation where together, we assess your wants, needs and desires, and get a feel for the project. 

There are many steps to building a custom home in Adelaide. It's a journey that takes time, so it is important that you feel comfortable with us. It's important to us that we are the right fit for you, and are able to build your luxury custom home.

Are you looking for an energy efficient design for your custom home?

We are  expert builders of custom energy efficient homes. It's not a speciality we originally set out to achieve, but it naturally happened over time. With intense attention to detail comes care for the environment, as well as a strong determination to create sustainable and economical building perfection. 

We have won HIA Greensmart environmental/sustainability awards. Feel welcome to browse our Chakra and Soraya homes. Our multiple award winning, energy efficient, luxury homes.

How our awards help you

Sure we have won lots of awards, but for us, award winning is a secondary consideration. Our processes are thorough and careful. When building your luxury home, we seek to innovate, working with quality people and selecting high-class fixtures to produce a masterpiece. It is a benchmark expectation for us that every home is award worthy.

With award wins comes increased brand value. This translates to increased value in your Serenity custom home build. As our reputation grows and more awards are won, so does the value of your home.

We invite you to discover the award winners yourself.

We are experts in sloping site custom built homes

At Serenity Homes, we specialise as builders of custom homes on sloping blocks and other non-standard building sites in Adelaide. It can be difficult to build on a sloping site; we love the challenge, though. Sloping sites allow us to innovate with special spaces. Sloping site blocks create unusual areas. The Serenity Homes approach is to take the unusual spaces and turn them into astonishing features of your home. 

Discover our Burnside custom home, winner of the HIA Best Use of Sloping Site Award, 2014.
