Luxury Home Builders Redefining Prestige In Melbourne

When people think luxury homes, they usually think of ocean front homes in Sydney or elegant homes in tightly-held Melbourne suburbs. However, the prestige property market isn’t just confined to bayside ‘burbs. For our team, the secret to designing a luxury residence is all about detail and creating a sense of natural light filled space– regardless of the suburb.

Each home we build is bespoke and a one-off, centred around a client’s site and individual requirements. We’re passionate about design and will create the luxury look you’re after for your new home using quality materials and finishes.

All Modscape prefabricated homes have high ceilings – 2.7 meters is standard, with clients often opting for 2.9 meters in the living spaces. This height is further emphasized by expansive floor-to-ceiling glazing which help to make a house feel luxurious and spacious.

Large expanses of glass frame views of gardens and courtyards and effortlessly create a seamless transition from outside to in – perfect for summer living.

A sense of space is heightened by a clean aesthetic, made possible thanks to ample storage. Coats, shoes and other household items can be stored out of sight, keeping clutter out of view. Butlers pantries are proving popular for this very reason. Appliances and crockery can be kept out of sight but within easy reach when needed.

Finishes are another way to inject some extra luxury into your home. With Modscape, finish options are endless – there’s no list you’re confined to. Our in-house design team will put forward suggestions to you based on your design discussion and budget, but at the end of the day, it’s completely up to you.

From a design perspective, more and more people are choosing to surround themselves with textual finishes and earthy tones to create a harmonious environment and illusion of space. The appeal of neutral tones are popular as it makes the interior appear bigger.

Timber, used not only externally but internally too, has great aesthetic appeal.

Many modern luxury home designs have the kitchen as the social hub of the house. This allows for you to entertain your guests or keep a watchful eye on kids while cooking. In the kitchen, clients are opting for engineered stone as the durability is first-class and offers the practicalities needed for the multi-functional nature of a luxury home kitchen. Soft-close joinery is a must for this well-used zone.

For bathrooms, we aim to create a sanctuary through calming colours and minimal fuss. Large-format tiles are great as they give the illusion of space. Skylights can be included so the space is flooded with natural light and you feel like you’re showering underneath the sky.

High-quality, built-in joinery such as wardrobes and shelving units ensure your luxury home will look as good in 20 years as it does today. Quality plaster work with clean lines make the home look neater and further aid in creating a simple, elegant look that is timeless.

For Ivanhoe clients, Simon and Kate, they added a touch of luxury to their home with a Modscape modular extension. “Modscape appealed to us because it is a creative company,” says Simon. “We could get a very bespoke build.”

Their luxury house design is open, filled with natural light and beautifully compliments its leafy suburban location. The extension brims with opulent  yet tasteful touches – oak flooring, terrazzo tiles, Dekton & stainless steel bench tops and a custom brick fireplace hearth. Carefully placed skylights and floating-tread stairs create an enticing point of interest in the entrance way.

The home’s floor plan highlights the clear delineation between the original house and the new extension. The original house has now become the kids domain with a private master suite upstairs offering a peaceful haven.
