About Us

Part of a global success story

Founded in 1989 by three friends Peter Hayes, John Harvey and Robert Bowen who had different skills and experiences but a shared vision and entrepreneurial spirit, Henley is one of Australia's leading home builders and has built over 50,000 homes Australia-wide including Victoria, Queensland, NSW and SA.

We are a part of Sumitomo Forestry Co., Ltd which has a rich history that goes back over 330 years and is a worldwide leader in new home design, building 20,000 homes a year globally in Australia, Japan and USA.

In partnership with our valued trades and suppliers, we pride ourselves on delivering quality, affordable homes in the communities where our customers want to live.

Henley is one of the most trusted and acclaimed names in the Australian building industry.

For 30 years we have been building new homes, introducing new ideas and placing smiles on the faces of tens of thousands of satisfied customers.

At Henley, we started in Victoria and, by the late 1990s, had quickly grown to become one of Australia’s leading homebuilders. We remain one of largest and most prominent in the country to this day.

Henley’s initial success came from the intelligent approach we took to new home design and the innovations we introduced. At Henley, we continue with that approach today, bolstered by our commitment to honesty, transparency, delivery and support.

Our goal is to make your entire building journey as simple and rewarding as possible through open and responsive communication. Because anyone can build a house, at Henley it’s how you get there that counts.

Build with Henley and know that quality lies at the heart of everything we do. We provide superior support and warranties and partner with Australia’s leading suppliers, brands and trade partners. Our team focuses on excellence to ensure your home is built to stand the test of time.

Land Projects

A great house design isn’t a stand-alone solution, after all what’s a home without the land?

A house without land is impossible, which is why at Henley we work hard to complement our houses with land, and vice versa. Given our interest and dedication to delivering award-winning homes, we are able to offer more than just a collection of innovative designs, with strategic and experienced land development projects that encompass the complete greenfield or demolition process - through to subdivision, design, marketing and sales.

By looking beyond the floorplan, we’ve developed extensive experience in professionally pairing house to land, enhancing land, and creating house and land packages that deliver innovative and attractive outcomes to market. By using our industry network and expertise, we integrate important factors from planning, survey and civil engineering into our developments to deliver market-ready products.

From townhouses to terraces, detached homes or high density living, and even knockdown and rebuild projects, we have experience with joint venture development projects, as well as outright land purchase developments, and we’re always considering new partnership and land development opportunities.

Combine our local knowledge, industry experience and award-winning designs with the backing of one of the world’s largest building companies, Sumitomo Forestry Group, and at Henley, we’re more than just houses.
