Met­ri­con Homes has been named Aus­tralia’s No. 1 res­i­den­tial builder for the third con­sec­u­tive year.

The an­nounce­ment was made at the re­cent launch of the HIA-COLORBOND Steel Hous­ing 100 Re­port in Mel­bourne, and comes as the firm un­veils its lat­est dis­play home at Sor­rento.

Called The Riviera 65, the five-bed­room state­ment house has two fa­cades and two floor plans for buy­ers to choose from, and a range of in­clu­sions. On the ground floor is an open-plan en­ter­tainer’s kitchen, in­clud­ing a but­ler’s pantry and wet bar that over­looks a din­ing room. Beyond the din­ing room is an al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing space sep­a­rated by bi­fold slid­ing doors.

Up­stairs is a lux­u­ri­ous mas­ter suite with pri­vate bal­cony, en­suite and large walk-in­robe, a me­dia room and three other be­d­rooms, all with their own en­suite and walk-in robes.

But The Riviera is just one of many sin­gle and dou­ble-storey de­signs in the Met­ri­con range.

The Hous­ing Top 100 re­port, which ranks Aus­tralia’s top 100 res­i­den­tial builders based on the num­ber of home builds com­menced each year, saw Met­ri­con top the list with a to­tal of 4764 starts across Vic­to­ria, Queens­land, New South Wales and South Aus­tralia. That num­ber is al­most 400 more homes than last year.

In terms of over­all build­ing ac­tiv­ity, the HIA said 2017/18 would be one of the strong­est years on record.

Met­ri­con di­rec­tor Pe­ter Langfelder said the com­pany was com­mit­ted to “de­vel­op­ing new homes to suit evolv­ing cus­tomer needs and bud­gets”.

“And it’s this fo­cus on de­sign and in­no­va­tion that saw us con­tinue our growth last fi­nan­cial year,” he said.

Met­ri­con Homes has dis­play houses across 22 south­east Queens­land sites, in­clud­ing new de­signs at North Har­bour in Burpen­gary East, Pal­lara, Spring Moun­tain at Spring­field Rise and Kil­lara in Lo­gan Re­serve.

Other de­signs in the Sig­na­ture range in­clude the Aura, Bayville, Bordeaux, Lavelle, Merid­ian, Mo­dena, Som­er­set and La Pyre­nee.

Five-bed­room The Riviera 65 at Sor­rento is the lat­est dis­play home from Met­ri­con Homes.
