Seven Network’s Best Houses Australia recently featured a new addition to the Designer by Metricon collection.  The Sovereign 50 makes an immediate statement of style and sophistication and features several distinctive design elements that work for those that love the sun and their space.

Metricon’s Senior Interior Designer, Melissa Colley gave host Josh Fisk the full tour of this outstanding double storey display home, suitably located on the Gold Coast. 

This modern home shows immediate appeal with its clean, simplistic architecture.  The façade featuring a semi-cantilevered balcony is perfect for enjoying beachside views and makes a style statement that position this home streets ahead.

It’s immediately clear that this home works with the Queensland lifestyle and for those that like to make the most of not only what’s inside your home, but also what shines on the outside.  Window treatments fill the large open spaces with light.  Various locations within the home can be opened up to the outdoor space, through large glass bi-folding doors.

For socialites and dinner party enthusiasts, the dramatic open plan kitchen is a stand out of this home.  The large spacious island bench features a stunning Ceasarstone benchtop and creates a stylish hub for family and guests to congregate. Pre preparation and dinner dishes can be concealed in the spacious butler pantry.

“The butler’s pantry is really the hero of the home.” - Melissa Colley, Metricon Senior Interior Designer.

This contemporary home is suited to families who love their space.  The ground floor boasts four spacious indoor living areas plus an outdoor room.  The private study has been purposely placed away from the hustle of the hub and caters to everyone’s needs.

The first floor presents like a five-star sanctuary, where family members and guests alike will feel anything but cramped and may not want to leave. The master suite takes luxury to another level with a sitting area and an ensuite that is reminiscent of a day spa.  The additional three bedrooms each feature a walk-in-robe and their own spacious ensuite.

The luxury hotel feel and mood of the first floor is enhanced by the sophisticated design elements of our Black Label Lookbook theme.  Wallpaper in stripes and subtle patterns complement the monochromatic colour palette.  Each zone has been decorated uniquely, giving each room its own injection of style.

“Wallpaper is a great way to introduce a little personality and some interest.” – Melissa Colley, Metricon Senior Interior Designer

Living areas on the ground floor see strong use of dark timber cabinetry, with lighter reflective surfaces that show off a distinct mix of timeless elegance and contemporary simplicity.
