HAMPTONS – INSPIRED HOMES Grow I n p o p u l a ri t y The classic aesthetics perfectly suit our coastal lifestyle.


Australians have embraced the timeless elegance of Hamptons-inspired homes with the trend growing in popularity with homeowners.  As a nation bordered by coastline, a Hamptons-inspired home appeals to many, with its classic aesthetic exterior and free flowing, light interiors.

Metricon has unveiled their latest Signature Bayville 49 show home at the Arise estate at Rochedale to enable Queensland buyers to view this popular style of home that is perfectly suited to our coastal lifestyle.

Peter Ryan, Queensland General Manager of Metricon Homes, said there has been a growing trend in people wanting a Hamptons-inspired home. 

“A Hamptons style home resonates with buyers because of our Australian lifestyle.  This home epitomises relaxed, coastal living and has a harmonious integration between indoor and outdoor living,” he said.

“As a result, we have had a great deal of interest from buyers wanting to build this style of home in new growth areas or undertake a KnockDown NewBuild in inner city suburbs.  It is a popular choice for those people wanting to stay living in their local area but build this beautiful on-trend home.”

The striking beauty of the Bayville is seen from the moment you arrive, as the home is a standout due to its quintessential coastal façade, with a trademark porthole window, gabled roof, timber cladding and stone pillars.

When you enter the home, you are immediately enveloped in the spaciousness of the design with the living zones seamlessly flowing from one to another.  This is evident when you can see the rear of the home from the front door and the vast expanses of space above.

Metricon Senior Interior Designer, Melissa Colley, said this key design feature is one of the reasons the Hamptons style of home is so popular.

“The Bayville is effortless living at its finest as the home has such an easy flow to it that you feel immediately relaxed and at home,” she said.

A formal sitting room and study are located at the front of the home, providing peaceful spaces away from the main hub of the house.



The rear of the ground floor comprises an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room that all open up to join the outdoor dining and living spaces providing a seamless integration between these living areas.

“The indoor and outdoor living spaces are one of the best features of the home, providing a perfect place to gather with family and friends,” said Melissa.

The kitchen is a chef’s dream with its own butler’s pantry, large island bench and Gaggenau appliances.

“The kitchen includes shaker profile cabinets in natural white encompassing the Hamptons style with contemporary joinery. You also have a spacious butler’s pantry with a beautiful feature tile that really enhances this stylish kitchen area,” Melissa said.

Upstairs there is a third living space and four bedrooms that have been meticulously styled representative of the Hamptons infusing textures and patterns.  At the rear of the home is a luxurious master suite that has a large walk-in robe and ensuite, with a freestanding bath.

“The Bayville is a classic Hamptons style home with its warm, comfortable feel and effortless style, which is how every home should inspire to be,” said Melissa.

n The Bayville is a must to inspect, and is open daily from 10am, at the Arise Estate at Rochedale. For more information visit
