Style on the Mile: Metricon House for Sale in Canterbury

I was looking through the local paper the other day and stumbled across this absolutely stunning new Metricon House in Canterbury that went for auction this morning (ill see if I can find out the final selling price). It is lovely to look at and great to have a look at a house that isn’t a display home and therefore the people here were at the mercy of the Studio M gods just like the rest of us!

I believe that the house is an enlarged Laguna house. The block is small, a mere 500m2 as it is half of a 1000m2 block that has been subdivided. It is located in a leafy inner city suburb which has always been a higher socio-economic area.

Here’s what the agent had to say along with some photos.

Making a statement in style and luxury on the Mile!

Designed for those who demand the finer things in life, this State-of-the-Art 45sq approx executive residence takes an inspiring approach to high-end luxury and innovative style.

Exquisite modern finishes and resort-style luxury heighten the innate beauty of this awe-inspiring entertainer where each gallery-like space is a visual feast that culminates to perfection in an "outdoor room" designed for all-year-round dining and intimate poolside entertaining. Replete with stunning natural stone finishes and expansive glazed aspects to seductive outdoor areas, this streamlined home features 4 deluxe bedrooms (WIRs, 2/ensuite including master/dressingroom and freestanding tub in chic ensuite), study, lavish home theatre, chef's kitchen (butlers pantry and wine storage) and superb open plan zones (gas fire) revealing north-facing BBQ terrace and stylish spa-pool amidst lushly landscaped garden milieu. Also flaunts upper teen retreat, deep bath in family bathoom, powder room, heating, cooling, security and double auto garage. Land: 500sqm approximately.

I think you will agree, the house is lovely. But what do you think about the 2.5-2.7 million dollar price tag?



  1. Stunning :) It is indeed a Laguna - but a heavily modified one at that - would've cost a bit! I guess the price tag reflects that ;)

  2. It's delicious!! Looking at it, just about everything is an upgrade, would have cost them a small fortune to build, especially once you add in curtains, landscaping, pool etc, and inner city Melbourne land is alway exy anyway. The blue splashback is awesome, kind of disappointed we chose to be safe now :-( Oh well it's not in yet....still time to change our minds....sort of..

  3. Its pretty nice hey Mel? This was one of two on a wide block I believe, they were mirror image and i suspect it was all done be a developer.

    ps. the blue splashback is actually a window. We are having the same in our place. Now I have to think of something nice for me to look at when Im cooking at the stove :) lol
