Exclusive tour of Metricon’s on-trend Amira show home in Ballarat

Whilst touring display homes just for the love of it is one of my favourite things to do, for those in the market to buy their new home, it can be tricky knowing that what you’re looking at is often far and above the standard package price. Premium fittings and fixtures, extra rooms added and luxury styling all take our breath away but also all up in price.

When visiting the newest Metricon show home in Ballarat last week – the Amira – it was very refreshing to know that it really was ‘what you see is what you get’.

The Metricon team was mindful to not add in those pricier upgrades, allowing potential buyers a realistic expectation of what their new home would realistically look and feel like once built.

The Amira is designed for first home buyers or those simply looking for something very affordable, yet it certainly doesn’t skimp on the important features we all love in homes. Four bedrooms, two living spaces and even a study area, the home feels generous in size and is flexible in terms of uses for each space as a family grows.

The home proved that size or budget is not an indicator of quality – it was full of the sense of spaciousness and high-end quality finishes that Metricon homes are known for.

And talk about great styling! Appealing to those with a keen eye for design with an on-trend Scandinavian look, I loved the charcoal timbers that in the cabinetry, contrasted with the lighter coloured timbers throughout the furnishings. The organic shaped and earthy coloured artwork were also favourite styling elements of mine!

A few of my other personal stand out features were the sizeable island bench in the kitchen, which is a real luxury and something I’m yet to have myself in a home (one day!!); the walk in pantry – because it is a real pain point juggling limited cupboard space for all our kitchen essentials; and the master suite complete with walk in robe and en suite – which gives that luxe hotel vibe and is a place to escape and unwind.
