Somerset display home showcased on Best Houses Australia


Our popular Somerset 59 display home in Glen Waverley was featured in an episode of the Seven Network's Best Houses Australia. Host and author Gary Takle met with Ricky D'Alesio, Metricon's Senior Residential Home Designer to discuss the inspiration and thinking behind the Somerset home design.

The fabulous Somerset 59 is a spectacular Georgian inspired double-storey home that features luxurious living spaces that are pieced together with style and elegance. Ricky says that the, "aim of this home was to adopt the architectural forms of mid-1700's neo Georgian architecture with modern architectural influences."

"The façade of this home has a symmetrical beauty that is very grand and a good example of what was the norm in a past era. The proportions of this home are oversized and creates a statement."

If you didn't manage to catch the segment when it aired earlier this month, then you can watch the video below to find out much more about this beautiful display. Make sure you also tune in to 7TWO at 10.30pm on Sunday February 14 to watch the segment featuring the beautiful Lindrum 52 display home in Dee Why, NSW.

Along with a starring appearance on Best Houses Australia, the Somerset was also recently featured in one of our own Lookbook videos with Chris Carroll from The Life Creative chatting with Metricon's senior interior designer Jacinta Evans about one of our latest interior styles – High Street. High Street takes its inspiration from New York's much loved Fifth Avenue. Watch the video below.
