About Us

It would be difficult for you to drive down a street on the NSW Central Coast and not drive past a Baxter Home. The Baxter name is synonymous with home building on the coast, when Bobby Baxter started building family homes in Umina back in 1972.

Fast forward to 1997 when his son Craig Baxter took over the reins and built his first home in Empire Bay (which still looks great today). Hundreds of Homes later, Craig is still building family homes for the people of the Central Coast, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter.

Baxter Homes core values

Formulated over nearly 50 years of building


Honesty and a no bull approach. We have no reason to mislead clients, staff or subbies. Our conduct matters.


Outcomes matter. Quality matters. Timing matters.


Share good and bad news as quickly as possible. Flag issues. Speak up. Talk to clients.

Baxter Homes have built an untarnished reputation for quality builds no matter what your budget. Quality must run through every job from custom beachside dream homes through to our value driven Project Homes business.

At Baxter, we understand the trust imparted to us with every family’s home build and enjoy handing over the keys to a home we would also accept.

“Run with the safest set of hands on the coast. A residential building team that live in and love the Central Coast like no other.”
