Metricon Homes promotes itself as Australia’s leading home builder, often highlighting their experience and the innovation of their designs. This is all well and good, but the question on every home buyers’ lips is, ”how much is it going to cost?” In this article, we are taking a look at how much building with Metricon is likely to set you back. We will look at both floorplans, and house and land packages to give you an idea of what’s available.

Metricon Homes Price Summary
Unlike other builders, Metricon doesn’t offer an estimated price on floorplans on their website. These prices can be a little misleading, as they don’t take into account things like the cost of the land and site costs. Nonetheless, we’ve looked through their home designs and will give you a general idea of what to expect. Remember, prices will change depending on your land and other factors.
The Clara 15 is likely the base Metricon Home with a price between $150,000 and $200,000. This is with standard inclusions and no upgrades, this house includes:
1 car garage.
The home is small with a house area of 106.25m², but this does mean it only needs a lot width of 10m.
One of the most expensive Metricon Homes available is the La Pyrenee likely to cost around $1.05m. This is without any upgrades, so the max price you could spend at Metricon Homes is even higher. This design is promoted as a luxury, two-storey design and features:
3 living areas
2 car garage
The total house area is 638.67m2 and you’ll need a block at least 16.3m wide to build it on. The inclusions are part of Metricon’s Signature range.
These prices include just the home design and don’t take into account the price of the land, upgrades, site costs or any landscaping and swimming pools you may wish to include.
Single Storey Metricon Home Prices
Apart from the Clara (see above), one of the most affordable home designs you can get is the Lucent 15 for under $200,000. The house is a single-storey design with:
1 living area
1 car garage
The Lucent series has eight different floorplans, which offers some flexibility in sizes. The house area on the Lucent 15 is 112.18m2. Not a big home, but might be a more affordable option for first home buyers.
The Fontaine is the largest and most expensive home design (possibly even more than the La Pyrenee shown above). It’s an acreage design, so you’ll need a large property for this design, at least 37.5m block width. It includes:
5 living areas
2 car garage
The least expensive house and land package we could find was an Ella 17 with Aspire facade, at $386,000. This property is in South MacLean which is about 40-50 minutes away from Brisbane. That distance might not appeal to anyone who needs to be in the city regularly.
The most expensive option for a single-storey house and land package was $641,636 for a Mantra 25 in Narangba. This home features 4 bedrooms, and the house area is 231.78m2. The block of land is a decent size with a 20m width.

3 Living Rooms

Prices for inclusions & Upgrades
When looking at display homes, remember that they will likely have the best inclusions and fixtures. Even the photos on the web page may depict fixtures that aren’t standard.
For Luxury inclusions and upgrades, you’re looking at an extra $30,000-50,000, possibly more, depending on where you’re starting from. The bigger your home is, the more upgrades are going to cost, however, a lot of the most expensive homes come with luxury inclusions.
Here are just some examples of what upgrades are offered in the Freedom range:
As you can imagine, after a few upgrades, the bill will start to stack up.
Driveways and landscaping won’t be included in your build price, you could end up spending upwards of $30,000 for that, depending on block size and work needing to be done.
Different house designs will have different inclusions, so it is best to be thorough when discussing your new home. If you need a hand making sure your dream home ends up as you want it, get in touch with Buildi.
