D

id you pay or did you get it for free? It’s the declaration those who went to university all have to make now before entering the vexed discussion of changes to university fees and the deregulation of charges. The declaration, one way or another, contextualises all the resentment or sangfroid, the anger or pragmatism about what changes in education for our country when you make a policy shift as big as this. I got it for free. Four years and an honours degree at one of the best universities in the country, after just scraping in with a year 12 score that was right at the cut-off. Yes, I know – should have studied more and hung out with friends less. Woulda, coulda. I still think this degree gave me the foundation for pretty much everything I’ve been able to achieve in my working life since. Free tertiary education was the bipartisan vision of this country for a very long time until Labor introduced fees (something we now know the federal Treasurer was moved to protest about in his uni days). Menzies’ Commonwealth scholarships and Whitlam’s abolition of tertiary fees and creation of tertiary assistance reflected a recognition that the lucky country had to also get smart: that prosperity would be built on education for all. Interestingly, despite Joe Hockey and others’ youthful protests, few would argue now against the principle

that, with the personal gain achieved from higher The other open question is on value for money. After education, those who are able to should pay something three or four years of full tuition, shouldn’t, for example, towards their tuition. It’s been interesting to observe a nurse expect to earn a bit more than the average wage the relatively painless repayment of HECS debts by of around $56,000? Some overseas students already those close to me, with all of it done before their 30th argue that Australia is charging Harvard-level fees for birthday. However, this government’s proposed policy some degrees without providing the Ivy League scroll: if shift is of a very different order, and the question a competitive advantage is not maintained between fee remains open on whether complete deregulation and outcome then some universities could end up and fully priced fees actually take us in the pricing themselves out of the market. “some direction of the US-style college system, Like the health system in this relatively where parents start saving the fees from the should and wealthy country, we still haven’t quite worked time of their child’s birth. out how to pay for an open, democratic and will have This was not what Menzies or Whitlam universal tertiary education system that is both to pay” envisaged: a market system that will logically sustainable and fair. Clearly some should and place degrees and institutions in a hierarchy of will have to pay; and surely it’s not unreasonable high-quality education for those who can afford to expect consistent and fair funding for the basis of it all the way down to the less valued, cheaper end of the system taken from the tax inputs that we all expect the spectrum. The Group of Eight university group is to pay. Maybe this is all leading towards some major tax anxiously expressing concern about wanting to be able reform to ensure funding for the future. to open their doors to the best possible students, not just It’s not like we already have a sound and sensible the ones who can afford their degrees, but some of this blueprint already in place to achieve this … do we? \ is clearly positioning to ensure that they receive some We welcome your feedback @ government help for subsidised degrees. www.theweeklyreview.com.au/mouthingoff The government suggests that, with deregulation, they can probably afford this themselves. Looking at the speculated fees for the top-end degrees, the government is probably right.

Back On Board

Cover Story HARI RAJ meets Olympic diver turned cabaret artist Matthew Mitcham

F

or someone who has spent much of his life in very visible forms of free fall, Matthew Mitcham has an admirable surfeit of confidence. There he is on the bottom of the next page, performing a minor feat of gymnastics while clad in scarcely more material than the average tea towel; suffice to say he is used to the public eye. When we talk, Mitcham sounds like someone in the tender thrall of a caffeine transfusion, which is unusual given that he’s only just emerged from a session in the pool. Now a senior member of Australia’s dive team, he is deep in preparation for July’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. He is also enrolled at the University of Sydney, where he is in the process of completing a bachelor’s degree in arts and sciences with a major in linguistics. And, if that’s not enough, he’s also rehearsing for his cabaret show, which is making its Victorian debut at the upcoming Melbourne Cabaret Festival. The last bloke with this much on his shoulders went by the name of Atlas. “I want to have all of my cakes and eat them,” Mitcham says, laughing but swiftly turning serious. “I’m not quite ready to give up diving, but I’m also not prepared to put all of my life on hold until I finish diving, because then I think it would be too late to get started. I’m just doing as much as I think I’m able to do without burning myself out.” Not that Mitcham doesn’t know his limits – he had originally started uni life with a couple of blow-off subjects like molecular biology and genetics, but time in the lab meant too much time out of the pool. “I’ve always liked languages – actually, I think the deciding factor was that I quite epically failed the junior maths required to go into second-year science,” he says. Still, the Mitcham method for avoiding burnout involves waking up at 5am for his first training session, squeezing university work and stage or vocal rehearsals into the morning or early afternoon, and then another three-hour training session in the evening. Things are a little calmer now that preparations for the cabaret have been completed. Mitcham spent six days a week working on the show over the Christmas period after completing a tremendously successful crowdfunding campaign. He had set out to raise $3500, but ended up with $11,497; people clearly wanted to see this come to fruition. “I think that was a testament to the wonderful amount of support that I’ve got around the world,” Mitcham says. “Yes, it was a huge surprise, and it was hugely humbling. I think we’ve actually put together something really amazing with all of their help.” Matthew Mitcham OAM was born in 1988 in Brisbane. He never knew his father growing up, and had a complicated relationship with his mother; much of his time was spent in the company of a second-hand trampoline. A world junior trampoline champion, he was later spotted horsing around at a local pool by a scout who recognised his talent for diving. He juggled the two disciplines for a time, choosing the latter because it was an Olympic sport. Mitcham came out in an interview during the build-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. While the world alternately fussed about and applauded his honesty regarding his sexuality, Mitcham focused on becoming the first man ever to receive perfect-10 scores from four judges – and the highest single-dive score in Olympic history – on his way to claiming a gold medal. “After going through my teenage years not being entirely

comfortable with my identity, [I got to a point] where I didn’t want to feel that unease any more. I wanted to present myself more authentically, so I made this conscious decision as an 18-year-old to be really upfront and honest with everybody,” he says. “That then followed on into the public eye; the first big example was when I was profiled by a journalist leading into the Beijing Olympics. She asked me the question of who I lived with, and I answered it honestly, effectively coming out to the world just because I wanted to honour that authenticity and I wanted to be myself.” His profile soared at home and abroad, aided by his charm and affability. He continued to compete and represented Australia at the 2012 London Olympics, where he failed to qualify for the finals. He had had a run of injuries – including spinal stress fractures – that affected his form, but few people suspected he was dealing with a lot more until the release of his memoir. In Twists and Turns, published in 2012, Mitcham revealed that in his youth he had struggled with depression and substance abuse. These turned out to be recurring; in 2011 he started using methamphetamine, eventually overcoming his addiction with the help of Narcotics Anonymous and his family and friends. He has been nothing but open about his experiences, from being a young man who wore a rubber band around his wrist, just so he could snap it when he thought of boys, to self-harm that he says came out of shame. His cabaret show is based on his autobiography, its content indelibly intertwined with his personality. “I don’t really know anything about anything except myself, so the show is basically my story, but I use that story as a vehicle to talk about things that don’t get spoken about enough – my history of depression and how that partly manifested in my life through drug abuse and drug addiction,” Mitcham says.

B

ut it’s not all doom and gloom, he wants potential audiences to know. There are trampolines and ukuleles and Speedos, all the things that make him who he is, including his turbulent and frequently hilarious relationship with his mother – whom he affectionately dubs “totally bonkers”. We’ll avoid spoilers for the uninitiated, but accompanying him to Brisbane’s gay bars as a teenager is one of their least interesting escapades. “My mum loves it!” he says of her reaction. “I don’t think there were any revelations to any of the people who are close to me. But I normally hang around and talk to people after the show and they can’t believe the lunacy of some of the stuff that mum and I did when I was a child.” There are obvious merits to being open and honest about mental health and substance abuse issues. But reliving them over and over, committing them not just to perpetuity on page but also performances on stage, would seem to be a particularly jaunty form of waterboarding. Mitcham, however, feels the process is therapeutic. “It’s been a wonderful part of my recovery, actually,” he says. “During the couple of months that I was working really intensely on adapting this, I was coming home at the end of the day pretty cranky, actually, and I couldn’t figure out what it was. “It was my partner that helped me realise that I was spending all day immersed in what I felt were a lot of my faulty behaviours, my history that I was not very proud of.

Making waves: Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham. (Marianna Massey \ WireImage \ getty images)


“That realisation helped me turn it around and go, yes, drugs and alcohol are still part of my life every day, but now they’re in my life in a positive way because I’m speaking about this stuff. I’m helping other people, making it easier for other people to talk about these things, and I’m educating people, so it’s actually having a really positive effect on my life and other people’s lives as well.” Mitcham has called himself a “show pony” in the past, and trots out the description once again here. He says that element to his personality has always been there, and it manifests itself when he knows all eyes are on him. “The more prestigious the event, the more intense the pressure was, the better I seemed to perform because I thrive on the adrenalin. Transferring it to stage was hard, but not as hard as it might have been without that showmanship,” he says. “It only took me a few days, three or four shows, before I started feeling comfortable enough to deviate from the script, to be a bit looser. By the time we got to the end of Perth Fringe World, I didn’t use the script any more; we just use the key points and deliver it however it comes out.” So every show might be different and people should go see it multiple times? Mitcham isn’t just in furious agreement, he says it has given him a taste for performing that may define his life after swimming. “Whether it’s stage, radio, television, or all of the above, a career in the entertainment industry is definitely where I want to go,” he says. “Uni is just a plan B in case something happens and that dream doesn’t come through, but it’s what I’m working towards.” Throughout our conversation, Mitcham peppers his speech with the word “actually”. It’s almost as if he’s reminding himself and the people who have drawn strength from his story that these things happened, that they are happening and will continue to do so. Just like a successful dive, it’s the difference between a leap of faith and a controlled descent, falling so he can climb back onto the board. “I put myself back in that mindset of when I was at my rock bottom, and the reason why I suffered through this stuff for so long had to do with the profound shame I felt. I realised after getting sober that I didn’t need to feel that way,” Mitcham says. “The more you talk about things, the more it breaks down stigma and gets the message out that there is no need to feel shame. Stuff happens, and shame isn’t helpful – the shame only stops you from getting the help that you need.” \ hraj@theweeklyreview.com.au

Food \ kendall hill reviews LE GRAND CIRQUE

(darrian traynor)

A

fter the disappointment of my debut visit to Le Grand Cirque – it was, metaphorically, a circus – it’s a pleasure to report that, on the return outing, I was served Perhaps The Best Tartare I Have Tasted. Bizarre that a restaurant can go from bonkers to moments of brilliance in a matter of weeks, but there you are. I suspect TV chef Manu Feildel opened prematurely, hence the early chaos, but things seem to be settling in at his premiere Melbourne restaurant. Let’s start with the lesser of the two experiences. It’s a Wednesday evening, about a fortnight after Feildel, the likeable French host of My Kitchen Rules and an undoubtedly accomplished chef, opened Le Grand Cirque (The Big Circus). On arrival guests are ushered beyond a thick black curtain into Manuland, where staff in skinny black jeans and braces dart about an over-bright, hangar-sized space with concrete floor, central banquette-catwalkthingy and a glass wall onto a laneway. A silent Hollywood film screens on the rear wall but the real star of the show is Feildel. Dressed in crisp chef whites, he divides his time between finessing dishes at the pass and glad-handing guests at their tables. Meanwhile, in our far corner of the room, a waiter is telling me how to order. Because, of course, I couldn’t possibly work that out for myself. “How I would recommend ordering is going through and picking dishes that really stand out to you,” he babbles, apparently unaware this is what diners usually do in a restaurant. “Then you and I can talk about it and build an order together.” Luckily he never returns. Instead, some rockabilly dude saunters up and takes our order. He returns with dip, an aubergine “caviar” with no real smokiness and little else to justify its $10 price tag. Long torpedo croquettes are slightly burnt on the crust and cauliflower-cheesey inside, with occasional chunks of chewy Bayonne prosciutto. Comme ci comme ça. There follows pork and cider rillettes served in a lidded jar with an unsightly gob of pasty white fat on top. The rillettes are so claggy they don’t need moistening with more fat. My mouth still grimaces at the memory. Dishes arrive sporadically, apparently at the kitchen’s whim. My date is worried Feildel might have sprung me as a restaurant reviewer (I had met the celebrity chef a few months ago when I interviewed him). But after waiting 97 minutes for our main courses to arrive we realise they can’t possibly be trying to impress anyone. Then everything arrives in a rush. Petite brioche is a chic French way of saying sliders, miniature burgers featuring either fish or a patty of pig’s trotter. They’re posh fast food, nothing special. J’adore cassoulet but this one, not so much. It’s moderately satisfying with its oversized chunks of sausage, white beans, salami and hunks of very tender

This affordable and well-appointed hostel has crisp white sheets, a huge pool, and a barbecue for impromptu churrasco. You could do a lot worse in Brazil if you’re on a budget. Just south of Cuiabá’s main shopping strip, it’s an easy walk to markets, museums, bars and, a bit further along, the colonial section of old Cuiabá. Buses leave for the Arena Pantanal two blocks to the north. Staff are fluent English speakers (a rarity) and helpful with booking tours or other needs. Rooms are double, or can fit four, six or 10 people – perfect for a group of soccer fans. \

Brazil is justifiably proud of the Amazon rainforest, which accounts for about half of the country. A popular product from the nearby jungle is açaí (a-sai-ee), which boasts antioxidant qualities and is rather expensive in Australia. But Brazil has it by the wagon-load, so you can fight ailments with the purple doctor at bargain prices. Açaí do Mato, near central Cuiabá, whips up açaí into sundaes, smoothies and other delicious-looking dishes. But the best part is that, apart from offering healthy vegetarian meals full of tasty beans, local vegetables and rice, it also caters to meat lovers. \

Deville CuiaBá

1000 Avenida Isaac Póvoas » www.deville.com.br There’s a variety of modern, clean hotels in Cuiabá, and Deville stands out as the best. At the centre of town, Deville provides an escape from the street hustle and bustle. Choose from a pool to escape the heat or a sundeck to lap it up. Other facilities include a gym, snooker table and a buffet all afternoon. \

10 per cent of the city’s 550,000 inhabitants. Surrounded by fazendas, or farms, stocked with big white Brahman cattle, the town reflects its cowboy roots. Basking in tropical heat as it does, expect a Brazilian kind of Cairns or Townsville, complete with steak houses and boot-scooting live music barns. But with sertanejo (sur-ta-ney-oh) music blasting from taxis, buses, bars and clubs, Cuiabá does things a bit differently from Australia’s northern cities. It’s a form of folky dance with guitars and accordion, and Cuiabános love it. No trip into the state of Mato Grosso is complete without a night at one of the clubs, watching Cuiabános let down their hair. Dancing, and we don’t mean the Melbourne shuffle, is the focus. The energy and flair of the dances, put on mainly by amateurs, would make some popular TV dance shows pack up and go home. Outside Cuiabá, a short drive away, is the Pantanal, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the world’s largest tropical wetlands. Mid-year is high season, so book ahead to cruise the wetlands by boat. Or ride a horse and see birds and South American wildlife of Attenborough proportions, including giant anteaters, giant otters, and the world’s largest rodent, the capybara. You might even spot an elusive jaguar. One surprise is that, as well as its yacare caiman (a species of small crocodile), Brazil has a variety of the emu, the ema (or rhea), and a big, white, red and black bird called a jabiru. Australians will feel almost at home. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

Known as Cuiabá’s finest restaurant for modern cuisine, Mahalo delivers delicately set out plates of steak or Amazonian fish. It’s popular, so reservations are essential and, as a two-star restaurant in Brazil’s Guia

Quatro Rodas – the country’s take on the Michelin rating system – why shouldn’t it be? Diners have a choice of nooks to sit in or larger tables among the up-to-date decor. The owner, French-trained Ariani Malouf, shares the kitchen with São Paolo hotshot Alexander Mack. Expect to pay about $50, or 100 Brazilian real. \

ustralian skiers colonised Niseko on Japan’s north island long ago (it’s been likened to Bali on ice), but it took my family a little while to catch up. Now we’re hooked: pillowy soft snow, kilometres of groomed ski runs and off-piste opportunities for my bolder snowboarding partner and our skiing offspring. Niseko is a sensational starting place for a skiing discovery of Japan. You don’t need to speak Japanese – although it’s loads of fun with kids and phone apps (and very much appreciated by the locals) when you do give it a go. There are places to experience Japanese cuisine and culture, and places that choose to ignore it. Ski and snowboard hire and lessons are readily available. Located on Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island, the region’s low altitude and superb powder

snow attract skiers from around the world. There are four main ski resorts, all readily accessed via a lift system that begins in picturesque Niseko Village. Enclosed gondolas service the major runs, while open chairs are a refreshing outdoor experience in minus 8 degrees. According to self-styled Australian experts running ski tours to Japan, Niseko is a bit “yesterday”. Hakuba on Honshu, Japan’s main island, is the next big player as far as Australian skiers are concerned. It has slightly steeper terrain. Ski resorts are spread across both islands, but the larger ones becoming popular with Australians include Rusutsu and Furano in the north and Nozawa Onsen and Shiga Kogen in the south. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

asahiyama zoo

Like temples and ski resorts, there are dozens of zoos in Japan. Ueno Zoo in Tokyo is the oldest and boasts more than 2500 animals from 460 species. Giant pandas, red pandas and snow owls are popular attractions, and the five-storey pagoda and teahouse adds a touch of ceremony to the 14-hectare grounds. Asahiyama Zoo in Hokkaido is close to Sapporo Station and features diving polar bears in glass tanks, seals that navigate glass tubes and regal penguins on ice. \

This ancient estate on the former visit grounds of Edo Castle, where Japan’s imperial family still lives, makes a great diversion en route to or from the ski-fields. Just a short walk from Tokyo Station, it’s an ideal place to begin a cultural exploration. Elaborate gardens are surrounded by moats and massive stone walls. The outer palace grounds and the picturesque East Gardens are open to the public all year, while the inner palace grounds are open without guided tours on January 2 (New Year’s Greeting) or December 23 (the emperor’s birthday).

NISEKO \ Grandpapa Lodge

HAKUBA \ Hifumi

NOZAWA Onsen \ Kawaichiya

Modelled on a Swiss chalet, this quaint family-owned lodge in Niseko Village provides a budget-priced cultural experience. The English-speaking mother and son run the cosy, wood-panelled four-storey guesthouse with charm and grace. Their Japanese-described Western breakfast is satisfying, while the futon beds, loft-style bedrooms and onsen-style communal bathrooms are delightful. Grandpapa has 19 rooms and 64 beds, including some Western-style rooms with en suites. Features include a quiet lounge/bar area, evening meals, ample ski storage, laundry facilities and wireless internet. \

Hakuba, in Japan’s Nagano prefecture, is in the northern Japanese Alps and boasts nine ski resorts, 135 ski lifts and more than 200 ski runs. Varied terrain and high snowfalls make it an ideal family skiing location. Ski and snowboard rental and lessons are available at all levels, and guides will take groups away from groomed runs. Many Australians live and work in Hakuba. Consider Hifumi, a modern and elegantly appointed ryokan (traditional inn) with just 10 rooms, for a cultural immersion. Located near the Happo-One ski field, it features private hot-spring baths and three deluxe rooms with onsen. Female chefs create traditional Japanese cuisine, and Western food is also available. \

Smaller than Niseko or Hakuba, Nozawa Onsen, in Japan’s Nagano prefecture, has 36 ski slopes connected by 21 lifts. Nozawa has a popular snow park and varied ski terrain, including a single 3.5-kilometre ski run. The village remains largely traditional, with minimal Western-style accommodation and many public hot-spring baths. Stay at Kawaichiya, a traditional ryokan offering 28 Japanese-style or Western-Japanese guest rooms near the central Nozawa Onsen bus stop. The timber- and stone-lined male and female indoor and outdoor onsen (public bath) rooms are a highlight of this smartly appointed guest house, where the menu includes local cuisine and some Western-style food. \

The most popular yakitori restaurant in Hirafu Village, the heartbeat of Niseko, has been so full at night that bandana-wearing owner Massa-san opened Bang2, just a snowball roll away. The yakitori (grilled food on wooden skewers) arrives hot and fast. Bang Bang and Bang2 specialise in seafood. Tables can be booked, but the system doesn’t always work and sometimes it’s just as easy to line up early and wait for a table in the cosy space. Vintage jazz plays on the sound system, the backdrop to tall tales of the day’s skiing adventures. \

apanese car makers have never seemed much interested in diesel motors, and Lexus still doesn’t offer any, believing diesel (which has been around since 1892) is a passing fad. But the uncomfortable truth they all must face is that, if they want to sell cars in Europe in any volume, they need a diesel option. Honda is a diesel latecomer, getting to it by an unconventional route. Most car makers start by putting diesels in their light commercials and 4WDs then, when the technology is sorted, put them in passenger cars. But Honda introduced its first diesel with its most popular car, the Civic, and has now put it in its most popular SUV, the CR-V. And it’s making sure people notice by putting 20-centimetre-high lettering on the doors of evaluation vehicles reading “CR-V diesel”. Everyone in my street knows about it. The 2.2-litre diesel may lack the refinement of its European competitors and it’s a bit noisier, too, but you can’t argue about the economy. CR-Vs nudge two tonnes these days but the fuel economy is terrific. The motor has a heap of torque. Once wound up it’s a very willing performer and overtakes efficiently provided you use the gears. But I couldn’t warm to this vehicle, and the reason is that the controls and functions I use most often are dumb. The navigation mapping starts showing minor streets only when you’re zoomed in so far the display is down to just a few blocks and then it’s hard to

follow. The radio volume control is a rocker switch that’s small and difficult to latch on to when the car is moving. Most annoying is the screen that controls everything. It won’t cancel its warning message until you touch the “OK” button. Most car makers treat us like adults and self-cancel the warning after 10 or 15 seconds. Honda must have very conservative lawyers. Small things, admittedly, but given the strength of the competitive offerings,

they would add up to a deal-breaker for me. In other respects, the CR-V is entirely unremarkable. It does everything adequately without standing out anywhere. The interior space is good, the fit and finish is acceptable and comfort is OK. If you’re still glued onto the Honda badge there’s nothing here to upset you, but neither is there anything that will particularly delight you. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

ELWOOD \ 85 SPRAY STREET

T

he renovation of a single-fronted Edwardian house can be somewhat formulaic. Most renovators will utilise their existing assets – high, decorative ceilings and handsome fireplaces – and modernise the rest by adding an open-plan hub to the rear and a second storey to accommodate the kids. It’s a tried and tested blueprint, and it works. But at the bay end of Harold Street in Middle Park, this formula has been turned on its head, with bedrooms confined to the lower level and living and dining upstairs. The owners decided on this layout after coming to a simple conclusion: “Why would we want to live in the dark and sleep in the light?” It makes sense when you think about it, even more so when you see the results of their three-year renovation and extension project, designed by architect John Lochhead. A newspaper found wedged in the foundations during the renovations confirmed Drallim was built in 1907. All that’s left of its original form is the tuck-pointed red-brick façade, one front room and the roof cavity above it, and the front door, painstakingly restored so that the original louvred panel above it still opens to let air through. The front room still has its high ceilings, an ornate ceiling rose, and a restored fireplace with pretty picture tiles. It serves as a spacious bedroom, one of two on either side of an L-shaped hallway at the front of the house. A laundry and a bathroom are set around the central stairwell. The rest of the ground level is dedicated to the main suite, comprising a huge en suite and a walk-in wardrobe, and the bedroom that opens to a covered deck. “Living in the light” takes place upstairs, where the ceiling has more skylights than plasterboard and the views over neighbouring rooftops remind the vendors of their trips to Paris and New York. A study is built into the roof cavity; the original chimney has been made into a feature. The rest of the second level is largely open-plan and holds a spacious kitchen with Miele appliances and Stone Italiana benchtops (not the first or last you’ll see of the material) and 2pac cabinetry. Dining and living areas follow in a line, each designated by angled ceilings, designed to line up with the roof cavity. Clerestory windows along the walls and ceilings fill the space with light, which bounces off the recycled messmate floorboards. The living area has a long built-in entertainment unit next to the gas pebble fireplace, and connects to the upper-storey terrace through glass sliding doors. In addition to serving as a barbecue and outdoor meals zone, the terrace acts as a cover to the deck below and a bridge to the sunny studio above the garage. The studio could be turned into a haven for teenagers and guests (the plumbing for a bathroom is there), and the double garage below has a car hoist. Add three off-street parking spaces to the list of things one wouldn’t expect behind this neat brick façade. The vendors also decided to build down, as well as up, digging out a basement and wine cellar below the existing house. Painted concrete walls and exposed beams offer a rustic aesthetic, and there’s no need for climate control in the 1200-bottle wine cellar. The only thing that isn’t a surprise is the amenity offered by this position – locals and hopefuls will be well aware of its proximity to the beach, Armstrong Street shops and the city-bound light rail. \ JO DAVY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Beautiful period features give character to all four bedrooms along an L-shaped hallway at the front of this single-storey brick house, while light and space distinguish its modern living zone at the back. Throughout, its rooms are well balanced and the floor plan flows smoothly. The carpeted bedrooms feature panelled timber doors with a stained-glass insert, ornate plasterwork and architraves, and deep skirtings. The large main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and white en suite with huge bath. Past the family bathroom and laundry, the contemporary extension invites natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows, glass sliding doors, café bifolds behind the dining table and clerestories above it. A white kitchen along the left wall has marble benchtops, an appliance cupboard and island bench. The 563-square-metre block has a neat front lawn alongside space for two cars, and an open back garden that features an entertainment area on a raised deck under a remote-controlled awning. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

The backyard of this classic Brighton property is like a park. In a street full of substantial houses, including historic and modern mansions, the double-storey brick family residence sits on a 1171-square-metre block with a garden courtyard at the front and a pool as well as a vast expanse of lawn at the back. The three living areas can be opened up for continuous flow or closed off, with the sense of space and pool views maintained thanks to wide glass sliding doors between zones. At the hub is the large kitchen (with casual meals area), which serves carpeted formal lounge and dining, a tiled living and dining area with skylights in the slanted roof and a vast family room with a bespoke timber bar. This light-filled space also opens to the pool, and an all-weather terrace at the back. All bedrooms are upstairs, with the main suite taking up half the floor: the walk-through dressing room with fitted wardrobes is as big as the bedroom itself.

PORT MELBOURNE \ 12 Turville Place

In a location that appeals to young and growing families as much as downsizers and singles, this corner property on about 600 square metres in a tree-lined street will offer different opportunities to different buyers. But all will see potential, whether it’s to rebuild, to renovate and extend the existing brick house, or simply to move in, enjoy it and tidy the neglected garden. From the property, on the beach side of Nepean Highway, you can walk to schools, parks, Ripponlea station, Classic Cinemas and shopping strips replete with funky cafés. The rundown garden belies a welcoming interior with practical accommodation, timber floors and fresh paintwork. The three bedrooms are well proportioned and one has a walk-in wardrobe and adjoining study (a potential en suite). There is character in plate rails in the panelled entry foyer, the bay window and double doors in the lounge, and the attractive porch under a terracotta-tiled gabled roof. The kitchen adjoins a meals area that has french doors to the rear garden. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

In the ’90s, Port Melbourne underwent a significant change. In an area that had been a poorer cousin to Albert Park and Middle Park, contemporary housing and apartment developments started to spring up. Built in 1990, this townhouse would have been one of the first of this new breed. One of just six, No. 12 is at the end of a lane that runs off Turville Place. The timeless façade is a combination of clean lines, cement-rendered walls as well as geometric shapes. The front door leads to a medium-sized living room. The open-plan kitchen has stainless-steel appliances and granite benchtops and splashbacks. It opens to a north-facing living room. The back courtyard is larger than most. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a study. The main bedroom at the front has built-in wardrobes and an en suite. It opens onto a Juliet balcony. Just a block from Bay Street and the beach, this house represents a great opportunity for those looking to enter the property market or upgrade from an apartment. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

BLACK ROCK \ 3/325 Beach Road It’s no wonder most of this Beach Road townhouse is dedicated to indoor and outdoor living and entertaining: with water views like these, you’ll want to show off any chance you get, or just lie in the hot tub and watch the world sail by. Even the views at the back typify coastal Black Rock: a bird-filled woodland of indigenous trees that are part of the council-owned Black Rock House historic estate and cannot be built out. One of four townhouses built three years ago, No. 3 is on level one and is accessed by lift from the basement garage and ground level. Its top floor has a covered spa on an expansive terrace with panoramic bay views; a lounge area with a wet bar that opens to the terrace; a bathroom (where even the shower has a view) and a back bedroom with balcony overlooking the woodland. The downstairs terrace – with 180-degree water views – is weather-protected by the larger one above and wraps around glass-walled open-plan lounge and dining inside. The kitchen is a dream, with Miele appliances, double built-in fridge-freezer and large Caesarstone island facing the ocean. Behind is a study, third bedroom (currently fitted out as a dressing room), bathroom with stand-alone bath, and main bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Beach Road is across the bay trail, and the shops and cafés of Black Rock Village are just up the road. \ TERESA MURPHY

mal James \ the market is a glacier; ignore it at your peril

O

f the 34 $1 million-plus auctions we covered last weekend in the inner east and bayside, 66 per cent sold. Bidderman, our bidders per auction measurement, was at 1.7. Those stats seem solid enough, but they disguise a further figure – half the auctions we covered had just one or no bidders. That is a significant change compared with the year’s first Super Saturday, back in mid-February. Then, just one in three auctions had single bidders or no bidders, and a third had four or more. Last weekend was the first real significant market test since Easter. It reinforced what we felt throughout May – the market is changing and we have entered a choppy phase where some results are above expectations and some below. Fault lines are opening up in the weaker home segments, such as unrenovated homes and overpriced or poorly positioned properties. The market is a glacier: moving slowly and slightly downhill, and full of crevices that can be dangerous if not approached with caution. That means you’ve got to be prepared for two possibilities – the chance you’ll be bidding against multiple bidders and could

miss out on the home of your dreams if you’re not careful; or that you’ll be the only one bidding, which could mean you pay more for the property than you need to. At 15 Avondale Road, Armadale, four bidders quickly took the price of the brilliant five-bedroom Queen Anne revival house past the on-the-market opening bid of $4.2 million to a strong final result of $4.9 million (Andrew McCann, Jellis Craig Bennison Mackinnon). There was another big result for a big extended period family house at 20 May Street, Hampton (Robin Parker, Marshall White). Close to schools, shops and parks, the property had five bidders from a crowd of 100, and sold under the hammer for $2.375 million. Meanwhile, in East Melbourne there was just one bidder for the single-fronted Victorian terrace house at 144 Simpson Street (Paul Caine, Caine Melbourne). It sold after auction for $1.6 million. Another non-starter was the auction for a four-bedroom, four-bathroom townhouse at 23 Drake Street, Brighton. It passed in on a vendor bid of $2.2 million. Just a note on an issue that may concern Melbourne buyers in some areas – the increasing presence of Chinese nationals at many auctions. There is the sense this is a group of people with deep pockets, and that

their wealth is further pushing up prices. While that might frustrate and worry some buyers, there is no point being caught up in the emotion – you need to accept and work with the reality. The law allows Chinese nationals to buy houses in Victoria – and if you want to buy a home in Melbourne’s inner east or, increasingly, in bayside suburbs, you are going to have to compete against this group. Overseas buyers are not buying every home, everywhere. Demand from Chinese buyers is still far greater in Boroondara than in Bayside, for instance. That explains why the inner east felt the effects of the global financial crisis in 2008-2009 for far less time, and noticed

less dramatic price drops in 2011-12. It also explains why the inner east has stronger dollar-per-square-metre land prices across the board (except absolute Brighton waterfront), despite bayside having similarly good schools, housing stock and other amenities. Certain types of sales, such as expressions of interest, are often set up for Chinese nationals and other overseas buyers. If the house you want to buy is being sold through an expressions of interest campaign, you will need to understand how to manage it. It is worth remembering, though, that the price and supply changes we are seeing would have happened eventually due to organic population growth. The demand from the overseas market has significantly accelerated price and supply issues. As buyers, you need to understand Chinese house-hunters are just another group that you need to take into account to maximise your chances of buying well. \ Mal James Principal Buyer Advocate 0408 107 988 \ 9804 3133 We Only Buy Homes www.james.net.au JUNE 4, 2014 \ The weekly review 27
