8 Edition Homes – by Mirvac

 06 May 2019

A new modern community — sophisticated, yet luxuriously connected to nature — emerges just outside of Melbourne’s CBD.

Formerly the Eastern Golf Course, this site at Doncaster in Victoria is being transformed into the Tullamore masterplanned community by Mirvac. The 8 Edition Homes are located just 15 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, yet are tranquilly set within a precinct that enjoys beautiful reserve outlooks.

With a focus on open green spaces — more than 20% of the estate is devoted to landscape and parklands, combined with heritage tree retention and new plantings — Tullamore has achieved a 6-leaf rating under the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), the highest rating possible in the country.

As ideal family homes, the design needed to be flexible to deliver solutions for evolving families, whilst foregrounding the connection to nature, and sustainable sophistication. The Mirvac design team considered the location and reserve setting, so as to take advantage of the views and site features.

Setting the elegant tone, a stone-paved pedestrian path leads you to the entry porch. Inside, the open plan design provides a sense of space, intricately connected to natural features through expansive balconies. With generous bedrooms, living and entertaining areas, each home will also have a fully landscaped front and rear garden, with a semi-transparent rear fencing to capture aspects of the adjacent reserve.

The environmental credentials are strong, with gas-ducted heating system and programmable thermostat, zoning and add- on cooling, as well as a solar power system featuring the Tesla Powerwall II battery with 13.2kWH of energy storage.

The interior has been inspired by the latest European trends for sophisticated family living. Floor textures include wool carpet, timber and large format porcelain tiles. In the kitchen, grand gestures such as the walk-in pantry, feature tapware and premium appliances equip residents for easy entertaining.

The Zip HydroTap Classic with Boiling, Chilled and Sparkling in Chrome was chosen as an upgrade as it offered the widest range of water options, which aligned with the sense of luxury and convenience offered in the exclusive 8 Edition residences. “The classic and streamlined shape of the Zip matched seamlessly with the other chosen tapware, and the stylish chrome tied in perfectly with the cool tones of the contemporary colour palette,” Harrison Hall, Assistant Development Manager, Mirvac commented. “All the appliances and fixtures were chosen to create a sense of luxury and maximum durability and the Zip product is no exception.”

The Zip HydroTaps were installed adjacent to the main undermount sink, situated in the middle of the kitchen — “to offer a new level of ease and convenience to our residents. We expect [they] will find themselves drinking more water due to the ease of use and high capacity output, and will love being able to offer guests a fresh cup of tea or a cool glass of sparking water in seconds.”
