Whether you’re a first time buyer, an upsizer or a downsizer, building a new home makes sense. Today’s new homes are developed to extremely high standards and are guaranteed to save you money on running costs.

Not only are new homes more efficient and can save you money on your energy bills, but you can also select all fixtures and fittings throughout your home.

Furthermore with a 10 year Masterbuilder Guarantee provided with every new home, you can enjoy peace of mind for years to come.


We understand that putting your own mark on your home is important. Therefore with all our design build ranges, we provide you with the option to modify designs – free of charge if you agree to build with us.

If you are considering changing a specific design, please let us know so we can advise you accordingly.


Where you build is as important as what you build. With over 75 years of knowledge and expertise many of our customers ask us for advice on acquiring land.

Contact us today to discuss your requirements and we will be able to advise you according to your budget and walk you through the steps to finding your dream section.


With Breen Homes, you can be totally involved with all major decisions and material selections, or you can leave everything up to us and just pick up the keys when your home is finished – it is completely up to you.


Being in business for over 70 years, we have a built a solid team of professional tradesmen – some who work full-time, other that are suppliers we have used for many years. Our understanding with construction is in order to build great homes, you have to surround yourself with the best. At Breen, our wide range of sub-contractors and supplier relationships ensure that you have the best options available in terms of product and service.

Whenever we quote bespoke jobs, we can guarantee very competitive rates as we get the best prices from supply partners who don’t compromise quality or service.


In short, no. Once you are happy with your working drawings, your fixed price contract will outline what is included and what is not and we make sure every detail is broken down for your records. Full transparency is key to building any relationship and this is truly the case when building your home with Breen.

Some circumstances, however, we may be unable to give a fixed price and so instead, we will include a realistic quotation – if these arise, you will be notified and this will be highlighted and discussed before the authorisation to build is formalised and agreed.


This is a tricky question as it completely depends on a number of variables such the section type and size, the complexity of the design and the scale of the home.

We never compromise on the quality of the finished product, so although we provide realistic time-scales and work to a time plan, there can be unforeseen scenarios that can delay the construction.

What we can guarantee is that you will be delighted when you move in.


At Breen Homes we cater for a wide market, for all budgets – but whatever yours is, we can promise we can provide you what you are looking for.
