Our Most Popular Designs


Ever wondered which home designs and facades are most popular? You’re not alone! We’re often asked about what’s trending, so join us today for an insight into the hottest designs from the last 12 months.


Votivo | Our most popular double storey home 

We spend many hours talking with clients to understand the exact features they want in their home, to lead the life they want to lead. 

Whether it’s an extra bedroom for when Grandma visits, a mudroom for the footy gear or a prayer room, we take the time to understand the kind of home that’s right for everyone building their dream home.

And while every client is different, there are commonalities we hear often – they want room to unwind, plenty of storage, a kitchen that’ll work double time for entertaining and plenty of natural light.

So it’s no surprise that our most popular double storey design in the past year – the Votivo – delivers on all of those fronts, and so many more!

The first thing that strikes visitors when they visit a Votivo home, is the exceptional amount of living space. And we’re not just talking about the large living room! 

As you wander up the main hallway you’ll see a generous home theatre. Keep going and you’re met with a large, open and bright kitchen and living space. 

Then, you enter the rumpus room that opens seamlessly to an outdoor living space, via stunning cornerless doors.

Upstairs the living space continues – a large TV area doubles as a play zone for the kids.

But the spaciousness isn’t just limited to these living areas, it’s woven into every aspect of the home.

Take, for instance, the fact that every bedroom has a walk-in robe. (Yep, every single one!). Or the fact that there’s walk-in storage upstairs, big enough to house a lifetime of linen, sportsgear or toys. The kitchen also boasts oodles of storage, with a large walk-in pantry and incredible functionality. (Just check out that island bench!)

And don’t get us started on the size of the master, or bathrooms!

Each of these features work exceptionally well for large families and multigenerational families who want to enjoy time together, but also find space for themselves.

Given the changes in our lifestyles over the last few years, it’s easy to understand why clients are so drawn to the Votivo. 

With features like a generous study and desk nooks in every bedroom,  it gives clients the option to work from home in style. And in a period where we’ve never spent more time at home, the Votivo delivers comfort at every turn.

As an Aspire home, the Votivo also delivers true design flexibility, which means the already exceptional design can be customised for every family.

As Arden’s Customer Success and Displays Manager Donna Millington explains, “Our Aspire range is fully flexible, so you get the efficiency and pricing of a volume builder, but the personalisation of a custom design.”

Sienna | Our most popular single storey home

Sharing every bit of Votivo’s luxury, the Sienna is Arden’s most sought after single storey home. 

Also hailing from the Aspire Range, it has all of the exceptional inclusions and design flexibility that are synonymous with Aspire.

The thing that strikes Sienna visitors first is the incredible suncourt, which opens up the whole home. When we chat to clients about what first drew them to the Sienna design, it’s invariably the suncourt! 

It’s a true standout feature in every way – not only does it fill the home with light, but it offers endless options for entertaining and relaxing. Plus, we so often hear that this becomes the favourite spot for pets!

Our clients often tell us that it fast becomes a natural extension of their everyday lifestyle – whether they duck out for brekkie in the sun, set up messy play activities for the kids or host a dinner party under the stars – this space gets a lot of use!

Of course – the kitchen is a major drawcard too. Balancing a functional, deeply practical layout with top-notch design, the Sienna kitchen is the other heart of the home.

Just like the Votivo, the Sienna offers a large walk-in pantry, and a beautiful laundry space discreetly tucked away behind the kitchen.

While the Sienna is a single storey home, it also provides a beautiful sense of space. 

With a gorgeous, large main bedroom right at the front of the home, our clients love the sense of retreat (and the quiet!) from being away from the action.

The cosy home theatre often doubles as a playroom and a second TV room, eliminating any tussles for the remote. Clients love the hideaway that the home theatre brings (and the way it can ‘hideaway’ toys from the living space!).

The four bedrooms and two bathrooms make Sienna an ideal for families both large and small, which only adds to it’s popularity. 

We’ve built this home for couples, young families and adults living with their senior parents – and in all instances – this is a truly elegant home.

But the truth is, no blog post can do these homes justice. Make sure you book a visit to see the two beautiful Sienna display homes – at Eliston Estate, Clyde or Merrifield Estate, Mickleham. And you’ll find the remarkable Votivo 43MK3 at Lyndarum Estate, Wollert.

Brookwater and Bridgehampton | Our most popular façades

It’s easy to see why the Hamptons-inspired Brookwater and Bridgehampton façades top our bestseller list.

Inspired by the famous coastal homes of Long Island New York, their Hamptons aesthetic is absolutely on trend – but the appeal goes much further than that.

When asked why they choose the Brookwater and Bridgehampton façades, our clients’ answers are surprisingly similar.

They speak of their unique street appeal, that these façades don’t look like every other new home. Between their soft coastal hues, the timber elements and the horizontal paneling, they provide a stunning first impression.

Clients love the mix of modern and classic design elements that stand apart from the crowd. They love that they’re inviting, warm and unique.

And of course, all of these elements – the curb appeal, the stunning first impressions and the beautiful architectural design – all bode well for resale value. 

Bridgehampton Facade

While the look and feel of these façades hook viewers in, the clever materials seal the deal. 

With Axon Cladding weatherboards and Hebel accents, these façades are far from being just a pretty façe (if you’ll pardon the pun!). These materials are durable, lightweight and long lasting, offering clients that all-important reassurance that they’ll last a lifetime.

Whether our clients are located in a coastal, urban, suburban or rural setting – these gorgeous façades are sure to fit right in, and at the same time – be truly outstanding.
