Three bedroom homes are perhaps the most popular size bracket in our entire range of modular homes.
That being the case, three bedroom homes also make up the largest number of designs in our range, which means you'll have a lot to choose from!
We've put together this list of what we think are the top 4 three-bedroom modular homes in our range. We've chosen these homes to make sure we include a three bedroom home for every need, from a modern family residence through to a beach-side holiday home.
The Brooklyn modular home design is a 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom design. The Brooklyn is one of our most affordable designs, with a base price of less than $135,000, making it an excellent value choice for a 3BR holiday home.
As you can see from the above floor-plan, the Brooklyn is a wide-fronted design with a large open plan living and meals area. The large master bedroom is at one end of the home and features a walk in wardrobe. Two smaller bedrooms at the other end of the home would be ideal for bunks or single beds. The open plan living and meals area has a raked ceiling, giving a sense of open space, and has a small laundry tucked away in cabinets that can be seen on the bottom left of the main area in the floor plan.
An optional 1.8m decking is great for entertaining, and two of the three bedrooms have sliding doors going directly out to the decking.
Four highlight windows across the top of the home allow in extra natural light - the ones in the bedrooms can easily have blinds attached for those relaxing weekend sleep-ins.
Generally, the Skillion façade is used in the Brooklyn, but this is interchangeable for most of our other facade options. The cladding used in the images above has corrugated iron on three sides of the home, with vertical Weathertex used on the front.
The Brooklyn is perfect for a holiday home and offers great value for money.
One of our most popular designs, the three-bedroom Hampton 16 is a versatile design ideal for anything from a growing family residence through to a mature couple's home, or even as a holiday home.
The images here show the design with our Cubehaus facade, but the home can easily be built with any of our other facades.
All of the bedrooms in the Hampton 16 are a reasonable size, with the master bedroom having a spacious walk-in-robe and ensuite. That bedroom is also situated at one end of the home for added privacy. The main bathroom (complete with bath) is tucked away between the second and third bedrooms, one of which has a single and the other a double built-in wardrobe.
The open plan kitchen, living and dining area are great for entertaining or for family dinners. The dining area is clearly delineated and is bordered by the kitchen's island bench. The sizeable walk-in-pantry will make life that much easier for the cook (or cooks) in the family
Picture windows (the large square windows you can see in the rendered images) are ideal for making the most of a stunning view, or for letting in a lot of natural light. Speaking of natural light, the lounge and dining area gets plenty thanks to the large number of windows, including a full size sliding door onto the optional decking.
The ceilings in this design are 9ft high, giving the home a wonderful feeling of space.
The base price for this design is less than $215,000 (at the time of writing). Of course, as with all our designs - this doesn't take into account factors such as optional extras, transport, and connection fees.

All in all, the Hampton 16 is a solid, contemporary 3-bedroom home that's suitable for a large range of uses.
The Shoreham 14 modular home design is a compact 3-bedroom design that’s ideal as a small family residence or holiday home. Its main features of note are its efficient use of space, open plan design, and versatility when it comes to facade options.
One of the Shoreham 14's main features is the spacious, open plan meals, living and kitchen areas. With only 5 square metres of passageway throughout the entire home, the use of space is extremely efficient.
The kitchen has plenty of surface space thanks to the island bench and there's also lots of storage space thanks to the generously sized walk in pantry with ample shelving for any home chef's needs.
The Shoreham 14 has all three bedrooms situated along one side of the home. The master bedroom gains added privacy from being situated in a corner of the home and includes a walk in wardrobe for extra storage space as well as an ensuite for even more privacy. The second and third bedrooms have built in robes, and the third bedroom could easily double as a study thanks to the privacy gained from being in the opposite corner of the house, and the natural light provided by the large window.
The wardrobes in all bedrooms come fitted with a shelf unit and hanging rail as standard, and all bedrooms use the SmartRobe system with a sliding door to maximise the use of space.
The Shoreham 14 has a spacious main bathroom situated between the second and third bedrooms. The central toilet is standalone, providing extra convenience. The laundry provides lots of cupboard space as well as an exit to the rear of the home.
Outside, the Shoreham 14 lends itself perfectly to a wide range of facade options. The images above show two variations - one with the split skillion facade and the other with our popular Cubehaus facade. The differences between the two facades are mostly cosmetic, however they do have different ceiling heights.
An optional deck is also available along 1 side of the home - shown in merbau wood in the display home photo above. The shorter length of decking near the front door is included in the base price.The Shoreham 14 has a base price of less than $190,000 (at the time of writing) with the split skillion facade, and under $205,000 with the upgraded Cubehaus facade, demonstrating why it's one of our top selling 3-bedroom designs. For more information on our home see our detailed "Design Focus" article on it here.
The Homestead 2 three bedroom design is one of the more traditional homes in our range. Ideal for rural living, the Homestead's unique style would be well suited to a farmhouse on a large country block. The optional 1.8m verandah on all sides of the home makes good use of the available space.
Inside, the home has a compact design, with a large master bedroom in one corner of the home, complete with a walk in wardrobe and ensuite. The traditional U-shaped kitchen comes equipped with a generously sized walk in pantry, and backs onto the large laundry, which also affords rear access to the home. This design keeps all of the important utility areas in the home close together for easy accessibility.
At the other end of the home you can find the second and third bedrooms. The third bedroom also lends itself nicely to being used as a study or home office.
There's a raked ceiling in the central open plan living and meals area, providing a lovely sense of space in this most important area of the home. An entry foyer affords added privacy. There's a sliding door from the meals area onto the rear decking, and a large feature window on the front side of the home's main living area.
Because of it's traditional layout, the Homestead design is one of the few in our range where we would not recommend choosing a different facade option than the Dutch Gable facade shown in the pictures above.
With a base price of less than $170,000 at the time of writing, the Homestead modular home makes the perfect family homestead for a rural block of land.
