McKinnon Edition school zone development raising the grade
A townhouse development coming to the coveted McKinnon Secondary College zone is aiming for an A-plus from buyers.
The McKinnon Edition project on Prince Edward Ave has been designed by developer New Horizon Group as a step up from the typical townhouse offering in the area.
Double garages, 3m-high ceilings, airconditioning in every living room and bedroom, as well as Miele appliances, all raise the grade, according to Castran Gilbert director Tim Brown.

“Everything is a reasonable step up for McKinnon,” Mr Brown said.
“Buyers are becoming far more educated, and the proliferation of home renovation shows has given them a much better understanding of what is quality and what is rubbish.”
With three- and four-bedroom floorplans, the hub of daily life is an open-plan living zone with timber floors and plenty of windows to provide natural light.
Stone benchtops and splashbacks in the kitchen join a mix of timber veneer and two-pack cabinetry. Stone benchtops also feature in the bathrooms, along with chrome tapware.
A courtyard provides space for greenery and a breath of fresh air for each townhouse. Some also have a terrace on the upper level.
Four of the 18 recently launched townhouses have already sold, with two of the buyers already living in the sought-after school zone.
The developer is also open to alterations, removing all carpets from one residence and relocating a laundry to suit another buyer.
A train line at the end of the street adds to the appeal, but it is the quiet location winning over most buyers.
“It is very, very quiet — there’s no traffic other than the people who live in the street,” Mr Brown said.
