The Living Difference

For 60 years, Universal Homes has been a leader in housing innovation, building quality, and superior design. Our vision for building quality homes is called 'the Living Difference' – which has guided our well-proven construction systems and state-of-the-art building solutions to deliver an outstanding range of stand alone and terrace homes, year after year.



Universal Homes’ kitchens at Karaka are an exciting combination of dramatic, versatile, and efficient spaces. Our design goal is to always exceed your expectations in this most important area of the home. By combining clever preparation, storage, and serving spaces, our kitchens look clean, refined, and stylish, so you can be sure that our kitchens will always live up to their looks.


The stylish bathrooms and en suites within all our Universal Homes at Karaka are full of slimline-design elements and luxurious features, that make them some of the most loved rooms in the home. Exciting combinations of sparking chrome, wall-mounted cabinetry, and easy-clean, hygienic ceramic tile floors make your Universal designed bathrooms a pleasure to use, while being trouble-free to keep clean and spotless.

Interior Features

Our interior designs at Karaka focus on combining the latest designer touches with the practicality of quality materials and space saving features. The design flow balances the needs between active and passive rooms, which makes the home easy to live in and functional to get around. This ensures your home will continue to look great and up-to-date for many years to come.

Design Options

Universal’s terrace and stand alone homes at Karaka have strong street appeal, looking as good on the outside, as they function and inspire on the inside. Our design choices focus on selecting the best, long lasting, weather proof, and durable materials that will stand the test of the elements and retain their good looks for years to come.
