I am Toby Searle, the working Director and founder of Highwater Homes, Macarthur’s custom home building specialists. Along with my wife Elizabeth, we have established the foundations for a successful family run, highly motivated local business specialising in custom built homes of the highest quality within the Camden and Macarthur area and throughout the Southern Highlands.

In 2011 we established Highwater Homes with the vision of providing outstanding customer service and uncompromised quality for those wishing to create their new home. In this time we have helped many astute couples and families design and build their new home from scratch. In 2017 we were proud finalists in the Housing Industry Association’s, Custom Built Home category. 

As the builder and owner of Highwater Homes I am involved through each and every stage of the build. I am always contactable to our clients providing them my mobile phone number and being that one point of contact during the entire design and building experience. 

Elizabeth is the Office Manager, where her responsibilities include client liaison, document preparation, book keeping, sales and marketing, customer relations and general office management. Elizabeth will often be the first point of call between you the Client, and Highwater Homes. 

Being a small custom home builder, we focus on the quality of the homes that we build by limiting the number of homes that we have under construction at any one time. Offering our clients carefully allocated construction slots, enables us to closely plan and schedule each of our builds, guaranteeing you the personal attention and focus that you deserve. As a Highwater Homes client, you will not be treated like another number.

All of our clients have access to their own on-line client portal through which all communication takes place. This is an innovative tool that allows you the convenience to make all of your selections on-line, ask myself questions, view the costs to build (from your home, work, holiday or anywhere in the world). The on-line system takes the stress out of the building process providing you with full transparency, open communication and 24/7 access to watch your home being built. 

We are a registered HIA Greensmart Professional Builder, proud registered members of the Housing Industry Association (HIA), The Association of Professional Builders (APB) and are the only Certified Professional Builder (CPB) within the Macarthur area. 

I was born in Camden and both Elizabeth and I both grew up in Camden, enjoying all aspects of the lifestyle that the Macarthur area has to offer. We are proud to say that we are true LOCAL builders. We now take great pleasure in raising our three children in Camden and being actively involved within our local community.
