Grandeur and sophistication meet tranquility and ease in Metricon’s stunning modern farmhouse ‘The Fontaine’. The Fontaine is a contemporary homage to the classic farmhouse theme, localised with a touch of elegant Queenslander architecture. Built on a lush, fertile block, the spacious house expands over 570sqm and includes a fully contained guest house, pool and an impressive entry. The home is characteristic of Metricon style and quality, with luxury features that make this gorgeous family residence both comfortable and stylish.
Operating since 1976, Metricon has built thousands of timeless Australian homes and has made a name for itself as a leader in the industry. Metricon is a nationally renowned company that operates to the highest standard with display homes and offices spread out along the eastern seaboard.
The Fontaine is a stately home exuding class and style as well as practicality. Divided into separate wings for adults and children or guests, the occupants are brought together in bright communal spaces that take the form of a home theatre, spacious sitting areas beneath high ceilings, an outdoor alfresco area with fireplace, a sparkling below ground pool and shady verandahs. The sophisticated home consists of generous living areas and bedrooms. Open and spacious, it reflects the sweeping, uncluttered landscape of regional Queensland while maintaining a convenient distance to the bustling metropolitan of the Gold Coast.
Offering ideal family living, The Fontaine incorporates four bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 5 separate living areas in the main house plus a separate guest house which includes a master suite, kitchen, laundry and living area. Metricon’s skilled designers have added character and unique architectural features to nearly every room of the home whilst still maintaining continuity of style throughout.
Metricon has used high ceilings and soft reflective grey tones to ensure a welcoming atmosphere. With the open floor plan and the tranquility of the home’s luxury features, the property becomes something of an oasis in the beautiful tropical climate. Traditional grooved VJ Boards throughout the structure contextualise it, blending the building to the location. Similarly, Linear board cladding on the external walls creates the restful feel of a Hamptons-style coastal home. Meanwhile, the natural textures and materials such as stone and wood add depth to the house. The use of individually laid stone cladding in special features like the fireplaces and front facade taps into the traditional themes of farmhouse living.
The legacy of farmhouse living is also represented in the choice to reveal the structure of the home in elegant feature columns and the boldly exposed bulkheads. The interiors are opened up further by leaving the ceiling rafts open, creating a welcoming, airy atmosphere throughout. It is precisely this open, inclusive and comfortable factor that allows the home to exist without pretension despite its unmistakable opulence, making guests and occupants feel at home.
The beautiful Fontaine is part of Metricon’s Signature range.
