Ballarat Welcomes Two New Metricon Displays

On the hunt for spacious, single storey homes that offer contemporary style and luxurious family living? Make sure you take a visit to Metricon’s brand new display centre, just opened at Lucas Estate, Alfredton.

The Fortitude 31 and the Whiteley 28MK2 are innovative family friendly homes, with smart zoned living areas to maximise flexible, family living and to provide plenty of space options for every family member, inside and out.

General Manager of Regional Housing, Phil Barrett, stated that these homes are the perfect example of how single-storey homes can provide just as much sense of spaciousness and luxury as double storey homes.

“These two new displays illustrate that you don’t need a huge double level home to have a spacious and roomy home with grand features.

“The Fortitude is a large, modern design which caters perfectly to family living. With a large open plan design and zoned kids bedrooms, there’s space for both family and alone time. The dining area flows freely through to a large outdoor room, which makes comfortable family living just that bit more enjoyable.

“Displayed in a stunning country industrial interior styling design, the Fortitude will easily inspire all who walk through the stately front door.

“The Whiteley is an exciting brand new design, premiering on display at Lucas. Boasting a home theatre room and kids retreat that doubles as a study, this home is the epitome of high class family living.

“The walk in pantry and abundant living spaces provided by the open plan living, dining and kitchen area makes entertaining a breeze for even a novice cook or entertainer.

“The Whiteley is styled in a light, bright and breezy design with pops of colour. The displayed interior styling is sure to suite any lifestyle, whether it may be a young family or an established and stylish couple.

“At Metricon, we have a proud 37 year history of creating innovative, quality homes for a wide range of home buyers. We are committed to designing homes that offer sophisticated features, open plan spaces and the ultimate in ample family living. Our new displays at Lucas are great examples of this.” concluded Phil.
