GONE are the days when dis­play homes con­sist of a ba­sic floor­plan and three bed­rooms.

Met­ri­con Homes’ lat­est de­sign, at Sor­rento, is more man­sion-like than house with lux­ury fit­tings and fix­tures, a pool, the­atre, wet bar and two wine fridges among its in­clu­sions.

The Sig­na­ture by Met­ri­con col­lec­tion re­de­fines lux­ury with each res­i­dence de­signed and per­son­alised to al­low clients to re­flect their own tastes and life­style.

Met­ri­con’s Queens­land gen­eral man­ager Peter Ryan said The Riviera 65 showed what could be achieved with a knock­down and re­build rather than ren­o­vat­ing. “With the Gold Coast hav­ing a short­age of prime va­cant land, it makes sense to re­build the home of your dreams,” he said.

The in­te­rior of the home fea­tures an open-plan kitchen with a but­ler’s pantry and the din­ing room has its own wet bar with two wine fridges.

The in­door liv­ing area opens up with bi-fold doors to an out­door en­ter­tain­ing area that over­looks a pool, gazebo and wa­ter­front. Up­stairs there are four bed­rooms and a the­atre room.

Met­ri­con de­sign di­rec­tor Adrian Pop­ple said the be­spoke de­sign was all about lux­ury liv­ing, yet also pro­vided a re­lax­ing space to live and en­ter­tain.

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