Bellarine Peninsula

As a family owned business, we are passionate builders who understand the experience of building a home is as important as the outcome.

Our Story

We have a vision to not only build beautiful, well-crafted homes that are liveable, but to ensure the experience is worry free.

For directors Leigh and Mark Cass, building is more a passion than a trade. With a combined 50 years building experience, they bring energy, pride and a desire to create homes of distinction to every project they work on. Having collaborated at various stages of their well-respected building careers in both Victoria and interstate, including the creation of luxury tropical homes on Magnetic Island in Queensland, Leigh and Mark returned with their families to the Bellarine Peninsula to operate under the banner of Leigh Cass Builders. This gave them the creative freedom to build houses of which they are proud. This personal investment comes to every project they undertake, as well as their commitment to honesty and transparency.  These values are the cornerstone of Leigh Cass Builders today, and into the future.
