A man is in custody and homicide detectives are investigating after the body of a woman was found inside a Melbourne home.

Emergency services were called to the Cragieburn home just before 11am on Sunday.

A man, from the Kernan Court home, is in custody.

The court has been blocked off by police for most of the day and neighbours have told the Seven Network they saw two young children being taken away by police.

"The exact circumstances surrounding the death are yet to be established, however, it is being treated as suspicious at this stage," Victoria Police spokeswoman Belinda Batty said in a statement on Sunday.

No other details about the woman or man have been released.

No charges have been laid over the death.

Neighbours have taken to social media after hearing the news, saying the death explains police helicopters circling the area on Sunday.

Others say heavily armed police also descended on a creek less than three kilometres from the home earlier in the morning.
