Thanks to its burgeoning café culture, proximity to the coast and abundance of parklands and golf courses, it’s no wonder McKinnon has become such a highly sought-after area in Melbourne’s south-east. Property is quick to sell in this area — and Parq is sure to be no exception.

Tailored to a sophisticated audience, Parq comprises spacious 2 and 3 bedroom dwellings designed in conjunction by CHT Architecture and Sora Interior Architecture & Design. Each residence is an example of exquisite craftsmanship, with careful consideration given to the design and styling.


Perfect for families looking for more space or those looking to downsize without compromise, the open plan living and dining areas feature a minimal yet refined colour palette complemented by elements of natural stone and timber. The look is streamlined with the addition of ample concealed storage, so there’s a place for every possession.


Parq residents are free to enjoy intimate dining experiences in the on-site private dining room, complete with personal wine cellars. The in-house gym, with a selection of free weights, exercise machines, sporting equipment, and boxing bag, offers a flexible space where residents can work out without leaving the building.


Outside, running and cycling tracks follow the length of Beach Road, allowing unobstructed access to various sections of the picturesque peninsula. Alternately, for those who prefer lighter recreational exercise, Glen Eira McKinnon Bowls Club is just a short 5-minute drive away.

Parq is located in a prime position along McKinnon Road, within walking distance of the best restaurants and cafés to be found in this thriving village precinct. Son of a Burch, the protégé of Mr Burch, lies next to McKinnon Train Station — mere minutes from Parq’s doorstep. Both offer delicious brunch options but Mr Burch specialises in a more traditional ‘big brekky’ style fare, while Son of a Burch has a Mexican-inspired food menu.


McKinnon lies in the middle of a region filled with parklands and amenities. Golf enthusiasts can work on their swing at the nearby Brighton Public Golf Course. Open to the public, just turn up and spend the day navigating the lush course. Alternately, Commonwealth Golf Club, Huntingdale Golf Club, and Kingston Heath Golf Club are all within a 20-minute drive and membership fees include the use of spectacular dining amenities as well as access to year-round competitions.

The natural wonders of Karkarook Park are only 15 minutes away by car. This recreational and environmental oasis is filled with indigenous plants and a 15-hectare lake where locals can be found canoeing, kayaking or sailing while fishermen cast lines along the water’s edge in hope of catching Rainbow Trout or Red Fin.


Parq, located within the prestigious McKinnon Secondary School zone, not only offers a well-balanced village lifestyle, but it’s also supremely connected. The CBD is only 15km away, accessible via the nearby train station or Nepean and Monash Freeways — making trips easy and convenient.
