As soon as we saw the Davenport 34 floorplan, we knew we could stop our search. It was almost as though this home had been designed entirely with our family in mind. With two children who have lots of toys and books, the leisure room and its location right down the end of the house couldn’t have been designed more perfectly. Robyn & Shane, Axe Creek VIC

Country Living Collection

What is a country style home?

At Metricon, we’re experts in turning large country Victorian blocks of land into modern ranch-style properties you’ll love. Our designers mix the best of traditional country with modern features to create contemporary single storey and double storey country-style homes. We want you to love where you live, and there’s a lot to love about our country style homes, such as:

  • Quality designs. Contemporary home designs suit their surroundings, with floor plans that give you space when you want it and privacy when you need it.
  • Modern country features. We’ve taken the style of country living and updated it.
  • Block suitability. Our sales consultants will help you take advantage of the wide open spaces by understanding the best options for your block of land.
  • Affordability. Grand country residences mean both quality and affordability.
  • Customisable. Build a home that’s uniquely yours, one that fits your lifestyle as well as your style.

What is modern country décor?

Put your own style touches on modern country décor when you choose one of our acreage home designs. Visit a Studio M selection centre in Melbourne or Geelong for country decorating tips from our experts. When you’re thinking of adding the modern country décor touch to your dream home, consider:

  • Updates to the classics. Modern country décor is a contemporary take on traditional country designs. It’s where style and country glamour meet.
  • Light colours. Make sure your walls, features, and furniture match the open country style everyone loves. And add a splash of light and dark wood, and some greys/greens.
  • Materials. Wooden tables and chairs and dull metals.
  • Fabric. Knit textures, natural-looking fabrics, stressed leather.

Another contemporary trend is to mix the modern country décor and coastal look, as seen in our popular Hamptons range.
