Ballarat continuing to build and shine with Metricon
WITH land listings in short supply but interest in building at an all-time high, knockdown rebuilds are fast becoming the solution for many Ballarat families wanting to create their dream home.
When there’s an imbalance between supply and demand, people who cannot find what they’re looking for in an existing dwelling or land will often start thinking about the house of their dreams and knocking down a home to achieve that.
One of the main benefits is that you can build exactly what you want. So, you don’t have to compromise by purchasing a home that might not have everything you need.
The trend has been growing in Melbourne for decades but is now very much on the agenda for Ballarat families too, particularly with locals who live in a certain area because of the proximity to family, friends and schools and have a desire to stay in the area but are seeking a new larger home in the area they love.
Metricon have two beautiful display homes showcasing how the knockdown rebuild process can be made a reality in this fast-growing region.
The Botanica 32 from the Designer by Metricon range, is a masterpiece in smart home design with its incredible build quality and generous features, it’s sure to impress anyone looking to rebuild.
The Grove facade strikes a remarkable balance between colour and unique style, creating a frontage that will be the envy of the street.
The four-bedroom home offers an impressive master suite that boasts two walk-in robes, an ensuite and courtyard, creating a real parents’ retreat zone.
The spacious open plan living flows seamlessly into a rumpus room and a convenient outdoor room, which combine to deliver an all-round great package that makes the Botanica an entertainer’s dream.
Meanwhile, The Amira 25S from the Freedom by Metricon range, is a new take on Metricon’s bestselling design, is focused on family living, making it perfect for those looking for a design with plenty of room to grow.
The award-winning design complements the stunning Botanica perfectly to showcase exceptional variety to Ballarat customers.
Simon Taylor, Metricon’s Regional West manager, spoke of the growing knockdown rebuild trend in the area
“This is definitely a rising trend we are seeing here in the heart and centre of one of Victoria’s most sort after and booming communities,” he said.
“Ballarat has everything growing families are seeking with great facilities, beautiful countryside, a vibrant arts and food scene, quality schooling and transport, so it’s no wonder more and more families are opting to knock down and rebuild on existing land to retain the lifestyle they know and love.
“The Botanica can be built with seven other different facades, whilst the Amira can be built with 16 other facade options.
“Metricon’s dedicated Ballarat team are on hand to help every step of the way and our display homes showcase what really is possible when building a new dream home, whether that be in a new estate or a knock down new build, here in booming Ballarat.”
