More to love ay what you will about our obsession with Sovertly sport. Yes, Aussie sports culture can be blokey and it’s fair to question why we

celebrate sports stars over and above those who excel in, say, science or the arts. But there’s no denying sport is the social glue that binds many communities together. Just as many a lifelong friendship has been forged on the suburban cricket pitch or in the clubrooms after a match, sport clubs have given countless immigrants to this country a vital entre to their new community, as well as a link to their heritage. So it was for Jim Postecoglou, who arrived from Greece in the early 1970s with his young family. At the South Melbourne Hellas soccer club Jim found both new friendships and the comfort of a familiar sporting code. Those good times also sparked a lifelong passion for the world game in his young son, Angelos. Four decades on, Ange has lost none of that passion as coach of our national soccer team.

Sarah Marinos meets soccer supremo Ange Postecoglou

8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016

O

n October 23, 2013, he was given the country’s most high-profile football role when he became head coach of the Socceroos. Ange was quick to get stuck into the job, taking the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2015 Asian Cup and now working through the process of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. “My own ambitions are beyond just qualifying – that’s not satisfying enough. I want us to go to a World Cup and make an impact,” he says. “I’ve stated my ambition is to win a World Cup. It’s a challenge but when you say that is your goal I think you are more likely to be appreciated for your efforts.” Ange is also determined to raise the profile of soccer in a country steeped in Australian football, cricket and rugby. “Without sounding arrogant, we are good at the game, we’ve matured as a nation, we are great at every other sport and there is no reason why we can’t be great at this one. We just need to state that ambition and not hide in the shadows,” he says. “To say you love this game in this country is not always the easiest thing to do and maybe that’s contributed to the steeliness in my character. You’re almost preparing yourself for a fight,” he says laughing. But he says a bottleneck in the game means Australia is losing the potential talent fostered at grassroots clubs across the country. “We’re giving kids the opportunity

you see progress in certain areas and understand you’ve put the pillars in place to get there and that gives you self-belief. The players and staff know I really believe in the way I coach and lead teams. They understand I am not going to walk away and that gives them the courage to go down that road with me.” The strategic thinking that is an essential part of the game has fascinated Ange since he was a young kid waiting outside the local newsagency for the latest delivery of British soccer magazines such as Shoot. He’d spend months poring over the pages and he still has those yellowing magazines at home. From the start, he has been an unflinching coach ready to speak his mind. He describes himself as someone who likes to shake things up, rather than coach with an eye on holding on to his job. “It’s liberating when you can do your job without worrying if it will end tomorrow. I’ve never worried about contracts or if my job was in jeopardy,” he says. “Probably the one time in my career where I veered away from that is the only time I’ve left feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful.” Ange is referring to his departure from coaching the national youth team in 2007. He won the role in 2000 after moving from his position as South Melbourne coach. But he was replaced after Australia failed to qualify for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. It still irks him. “I started doing what I thought people wanted me to do and trying to fit in with the overall agenda. That doesn’t mean I would have been any more successful but I probably wouldn’t have left with the regrets I did,” he says ruefully. Ange then worked with Fox Sports as a commentator and with Football Federation Victoria before spending most of 2008 in Greece coaching then-third division club Panachaiki. The following year he returned to Australia to coach Brisbane Roar, where he became the first coach to win back-to-back A-League championships. His stint included a 36-match unbeaten run, which remains a record across all codes of football in Australia. In April 2012, he returned home to Melbourne to coach Melbourne Victory.

A Head Of The Game

A

nge Postecoglou owes a lot to the world game. It brought him the tight-knit circle of friends he’s had since he coached and captained the year 7 soccer team at Prahran High School. Soccer gave him the confidence to resign from a humdrum nine-to-five banking job, and it’s also how he met his wife, Georgia, in 2000. He was coaching South Melbourne and Georgia was the club’s newly appointed marketing manager. But the game’s influence on Ange’s life and identity doesn’t end there. Since he migrated to Melbourne from Athens as a five year old, soccer has been a glue that has held him close to his parents, particularly his father. Soccer clubs and match days were social hubs for migrants craving a taste of the homeland they’d left behind. It was no different for Ange’s father, Jim. After a hard week working as a carpenter and cabinetmaker, Jim went to South Melbourne Hellas, where he met new friends and could pretend, for a moment, he was back in Greece. Sharing those moments, Ange revelled in his father’s company. “Dad introduced me to soccer and I wanted to be close to him. It was the only time I saw him relax,” Ange says. “I started to play footy and got into cricket, but my father wanted to make sure his son didn’t lose the values of the past. We were in an unknown country and he didn’t want me to go into an unknown sport that he didn’t understand. So I became obsessed with football because it gave me a connection to my father.” That connection is still a major driver for Ange as he has progressed from high school coach to playing senior soccer and then to coaching at national and international level. “We always talk about migrants coming here for a better life but I’m sure my parents did not have a better life. Things would have been hard for them in Greece but at least they would have been surrounded by family and friends. They came here to give my sister and me the opportunity of a better life,” he says. “That’s a torch I still carry. I want to make sure I achieve what mum and dad fought for, so hopefully they get some satisfaction out of that. Dad is old school. He didn’t hug me and tell me he loved me every night and he’s still a hard taskmaster today.” Ange laughs when he recalls returning home to Melbourne from Sydney after leading the Socceroos to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup. The final was a hard-fought contest between South Korea and Australia with the home side winning its first Asian Cup in extra time. “I came home and showed dad the medal and cup and he said, ‘Well done son – but if you’d made a substitution you would have done it in full time’. It annoys the sh-t out of me,” Ange says. “Mind you, mum says when I’m not around he watches tapes of my games and says how proud he is, but I’ve always felt I was never good enough. That drives me – to have dad one day say, ‘You’ve done OK’. But I almost think I don’t want him to say it so I can maintain that drive to prove myself to him.” Ange’s playing career ran to 193 senior games for South Melbourne between 1984 and 1993. But it is as a coach that he is most comfortable and confident. “Playing was always a bit of a struggle. I was aware of my limitations and that allows fear to creep in on the field. I was captain at quite a young age, and I was confident talking about the game, but I had a nervousness about my ability. I never really believed I was a top-class player,” he says frankly. “I’ve never had that lack of confidence as a coach – it’s not arrogance but just a natural belief in what I do, plus


to play and we’re selling dreams about becoming a professional footballer but we only have 10 professional teams in our competition. If you grow up in Europe or South America, there are multiple avenues to get to the top. Here those avenues are very narrow and some great kids are walking away from the sport.”

A

nge’s commitment to the game that helped him ease into life beyond Athens is clear and he’s made plenty of sacrifices. Time away from Georgia and his three sons, James, 17, Max, two, and seven-month-old Alexi, are the biggest personal wrench. “My wife and I love going to the movies for our switch-off time and we love travelling back to Greece when we can. I also enjoy watching a game without being a coach. I can watch Liverpool play a game on TV and get as frustrated as any other supporter. “I missed a huge chunk of James’ growing up and I’m missing chunks of the two young ones growing up – I think that’s harder for me than for the boys. My father was working all the time and there weren’t many hugs and I overcompensate that with my kids. I worry that I am bringing them up too soft,” he says with a smile. James has taken up the game but Ange is careful to keep a low profile when his son plays – he usually hides in a remote corner of the field. “I’ve taken James into the dressing rooms at games when I am working and he understands what I do. He sees it’s a great job, but he sees the pressures.” Ange copes with those pressures and making the hard decisions that come with the national head coach role by keeping players at a respectful distance. While he’s empathetic, he maintains a professional remoteness. “People know that’s my personality so at any time if I say, ‘Let’s go for a coffee’ to a player or staff member they say ‘What’s going on, Ange?’. But I make tough decisions on a daily basis, so I need that barrier,” he says. That barrier means he’s not the greatest travel companion. He’s hears the stories of his players and staff trying to switch boarding passes when they realise they’ve drawn the seat next to the head coach. “Nobody wants to sit next to me because I don’t speak. A couple of times I’ve chuckled when young players are oblivious to how I am and start chatting to me and I shut that down pretty quickly. Eventually they realise it’s not personal. But I’m not that serious at home. I’m softer when I’m “I’ve always felt relaxed, like my father. I wasn’t good When he was with his friends and family, he enough. That was the life of the party, and that’s me. drives me – I enjoy being around to have Dad say, people who are close to me, telling the stories and ‘You’ve done OK’. cracking the jokes. If the players saw me then, they’d do a double take.” The focus now is on Russia and the 2018 World Cup, but what does the game hold for Ange beyond that? He’s never been one to plan too far ahead but says his next role will be overseas. “I want to coach abroad as an Australian. If I can go to Europe and have some success then people will say, ‘Well, hold on, maybe the Aussies do know something about the game’. That’s the next step for me.” ● smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au

FROM THE ASHES

PETER WILMOTH takes a sneak peek at the new incarnation of one of Melbourne’s favourite restaurants

S

t Kilda has its beloved and iconic restaurant back. Stokehouse 2.0 – or the Stokehouse Precinct, as owner Frank Van Haandel is calling it – is set to fully open next week and Frank says he is “jumping out of my skin”. “Bring back the good times,” he says, as builders around him saw, grind and put the finishing touches on this amazing new structure. “We’ve been waiting for this for three years.” In January 2014, a fire destroyed the original Stokehouse restaurant, a historic timber structure that, faced with engulfing flames, never stood a chance. “I got a phone about 11 o’clock that Friday night and I could hear the tremor in our manager’s voice when he told me, ‘Frank, there’s a fire at the Stokehouse’,” he recalls. “The old Stokehouse was predominantly built out of 80-100-year-old timbers and I knew a substantial fire would be very hard to stop.” Faced with rebuilding, Frank at no stage considered a re-make of what had been lost. Instead he asked for submissions from six architects known for their coastal-friendly buildings, choosing Robert Simeoni Architects’ design. “I wasn’t keen to do a replica,” Frank says. “I have to say my ego might have played a part in wanting to do something new because I have four sons. I’d like the Van Haandel name to continue.” After two years of planning and approval, building began a year ago and will finish just in time for the main restaurant’s opening on December 9. Within 24 hours of the reservation line opening last week, the restaurant had been booked out until April. Earlier this month, Frank gave us a tour of the almost finished building: four different identities within one five-green-star-graded structure, built at a cost of $13.5 million.

“My ego might have played a part in wanting to do something new” – Frank Van Haandel

Let the good times roll: Robert Simeoni’s design (main). Above: Frank Van Haandel (centre) with son Hugh (left) and new head chef Ollie Hansford outside the new restaurant. (MICHAEL RAYNER)

It’s a dramatic entrance. From a circular driveway, guests walk under a “sand-dune” to enter the building. There’s the option of taking an elevator to the Stokehouse Restaurant, the classic diner that will focus on seafood. Echoes of the old Stokehouse remain: the famous balcony overlooking the bay is now an “internal”, weatherproof terrace: a window can be opened or closed within two minutes to create an outdoor space. For hip younger diners there’s the ground-level Pontoon, which Frank calls “a fast, young, vibrant space”. It has craft beers on tap and shared food prepared on a four-metre grill, custom-designed in the US. Also on the ground floor, Paper Fish is an affordable and healthier version of a takeaway

fish and chip shop, while The Stoke Bar incorporates a station with freshly shucked oysters and sliced sashimi-grade fish. “It has something for everyone’s budget, backpackers right up to corporate diners,” Frank says. The new building’s credentials for sustainability are impeccable. Geothermal technology includes 3.5 kilometres of copper piping installed 80 metres below the building. A 300,000-litre rainwater-harvesting tank under the driveway services all water needs. The timber on the outside of the building will not require painting for 40 years, and no petroleum-based paints, glues or plastic have been used. Most of the timbers for the entry, the stairs, walls and floor were recovered from

Gippsland, where the State Government was cutting firebreaks. “I nearly teared up when I saw a poster one day from the geothermal company that said, ‘Stokehouse, powered by the Earth’,” Frank says. “There are three kitchens and one bar with high water and energy usage. To achieve five-star design is quite extraordinary.” Reaction to the new building has been overwhelmingly positive. Frank says there’s been an avalanche of people who love it. “A couple of knockers have said the footprint has grown. It’s because the old weatherboard beach shack never had a lift or disabled toilets or staff facilities with showers.” The Stokehouse’s dramatic renaissance has also provided the opportunity for a new guard to take the reins. Frank’s son Hugh, 28, is the restaurant’s manager. Head chef Ollie Hansford, previously with the Stokehouse in Queensland and in the city, is also 28. Frank knows it’s a young person’s game. “Restaurants, like the fashion industry, change fairly rapidly so to keep abreast of it you need youth and a changing of the guard.” Given its coveted beachside site and the affection with which the Stokehouse is held by so many, there was naturally pressure to achieve a brilliant solution. “Everyone feels a sense of ownership with the Stokehouse,” Frank says. “Everyone had stories. I believe what’s been achieved – with the restaurant appearing to float above the sand dune – in my opinion, is on a global level.” Frank is excited about the new era. “We’re not going to be talking about the past ever again, we’re just going to be talking about the future,” he says. “We’re bringing back the good times.” ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » stokehouse.com.au/melbourne NOVEMBER 30, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 11

Blue Pyrenees Estate 2013 (Pyrenees) $42; 14.5%

Chandon S NV (Victoria) $29; 12.8%

A blend of five grapes – grenache, sangiovese, tempranillo, barbera and shiraz – that smells invitingly of cherries, spice and earth. It’s seamless and savoury, with flavour hitting every corner of the mouth. With terrific structure and balance, as you’d expect with a blend, it’s bright, juicy and will take a light chill on a warm day. ●

A 73/19/4/4 blend of cab sav, merlot, malbec and shiraz, this is a super wine that got better the longer the bottle was open. There’s a minty, cedar character plus rich blue and black fruits on the nose. It’s smooth and rich in the mouth, with blackberry, spice and earth, balance and glossy, dense tannins. Delicious now, but wait a few years if you can. ●

The crew at Chandon in the Yarra Valley made their own orange-based bitters and added a dash to the sparkling. This is the result. It’s designed to be drunk over ice and there’s a heady set of aromas, including orange marmalade. It’s creamy smooth, slightly sweet without ice and full of complex citrus and stonefruit flavours. It’s the perfect drink for a hot night. ●

BRUNCH \ Ascot Food Store in Ascot Vale. It’s my local and the menu is great. Eggs benedict with the pork belly is a winner. If you feel like something sweet, they do great doughnuts, too.

ABOUT CHRIS TO SEE AND BE SEEN \ Oter is the perfect place for a great dinner or even a quick business lunch – French food as we don’t know it. Make sure you keep some room for dessert; those beautiful daily baked tarts are not to be missed.

A FANCY DINNER \ Amaru in Armadale. I love Clinton [McIver’s] food. It’s the perfect example of contemporary Australian cuisine. It’s fine dining but with a casual approach and not intimidating.

A DATE \ Bistro Vue The setting and the food is always consistent. David Wilson [restaurant manager] makes you feel special.

A QUIET DINNER \ La Tortilleria in Flemington. It’s close to my home and the outside tables are perfect on a nice Melbourne day. It’s authentic, tasty Mexican food and they always have great Mexican cocktails to choose from.

A BIG GROUP \ Mister Jennings The mezzanine level upstairs is perfect for a big group. The atmosphere of a private dining room makes any occasion feel special. You’re sure to be blown away by Ryan [Flaherty’s] food creation.

magine a warm, savoury custard, floating beneath a layer of thick, mushroomy broth – wobbly, but still firm enough to put a spoon through so you can watch it yield satisfyingly to your whim, revealing unexpected seafood delights floating beneath. Chawanmushi feels like an entirely appropriate dish to begin with at this unassuming Japanese bistro. Especially when theirs is some of the best I’ve had – not only in depth of flavour and texture, but also in its generous portion size, packed with scallop, prawn and shiitake. I can’t decide whether this or the agedashi tofu – deep fried silken tofu served in a silky broth with crab – is my favourite, so I order both. Also on your list should be the tororo-isobeage, which might read like an easy way of using up all your vowels in Scrabble, but is actually a kooky yam-filled nori-wrapped dumpling – kinda crunchy and briny, but also slightly sweet. Sashimi fans will love the slick knife-work and artful array of fresh fish, including some chubby scallops that almost started a chopstick war. Don’t be surprised by the smaller portions – just order more than you’d think. Bring family, bring friends, bring your sumo pants. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

COOKING \ prawns are great right now, especially those coming out of Skull Island in the Northern T Territory. For perfectly poached prawns at home, simply cover with boiling water and leave to cool. ● READING \ I’ve loved getting to know Rick Stein better while in Margaret River this month and his book Under a Mackerel Sky (Penguin Books) is back in my handbag – so insightful and honest, just like the man himself. ●

The show was a huge hit at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at fringe fests in Dublin and Adelaide. “We have so much beautiful talent that is just not getting an opportunity to be seen,” Kim says. “We’ve worked with so many Honeys around Australia, from amazing drag queens to B-girls to amazing circus performers. We decided to write ourselves and these people onto the stage.” These so-called Honeys include beatboxers, storytellers, singers, circus performers and dancers from Tongan, Indonesian, Samoan, Maori, South African and Kamilaroi backgrounds. Together they’ve created a genre-bending production that Kim describes as a cross between a night at the theatre and a Beyonce concert. “The arts have the capacity to change culture and we’re in a culture that needs changing,” Kim says. “Laughter is the best way of breaking preconceptions. We laugh a lot and the audience gets to laugh a lot.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

The group’s act is a furious mix of everything from cabaret to hip hop, designed to show Australian audiences exactly what we’ve been missing. MC Kim “Busty Beatz” Bowers says their success has proved there’s an appetite for adventurous and diverse theatre. “There was a statistical thing done in Australia that showed if you put a woman of colour on a poster, people won’t go to your show,” Kim says. “We just went, this is how we look, this our show, here we are.

Phiona hails from the poverty-stricken slum of Katwe in Uganda, where there are few options for self-improvement, let alone escape.

ROAD TRIP PETER WIL MOTH TOURS THE MORNINGTON PENINSUL A

I

t was a bit like the Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon movie The Trip: two old friends driving (in our case in a new Porsche 718 Boxster) from winery to restaurant, riffing about life, food and wine – three topics with a lot of range. My friend Matthew knows a lot about wine (he makes it) and food (he loves eating it), and life (he is generous sharing his thoughts on it). So that was handy. Oh, and there were impersonations, too (bad ones – don’t ask me to do Michael Caine) and phone calls home, just like the movie. To the journey … What a car I found myself in hitting the highway towards the peninsula’s fabled wineries. I was road-ready in seconds. I touched a button and the roof came down (it takes just a few moments). And with just a touch of the accelerator came the sound of the car’s throaty growl. Where have you been all my life? ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au Peter Wilmoth visited the Mornington Peninsula as a guest of Visit Victoria.

Stay PORT PHILLIP ESTATE offers six exquisitely appointed suites featuring black sofas and reindeer pelt sofa throws, artworks by Bill Henson and sumptuous bedrooms. There’s a private terrace looking out over the vineyard towards Westernport Bay, perfect for a glass of wine or coffee, or in our case a breakfast in the sunshine of toast from a fresh loaf, muesli with yoghurt and fruit, and several coffees from the DeLonghi machine. Perfect digs to de-brief on our wine tour. The Dining Room offers a delicious menu: think Queensland spanner crab with nero pasta, puffed rice and crustacean crumble and charred John Dory with confit lemon, octopus and macadamia. And what a view to enjoy it with – the vineyards rolling out in front of us and Westernport beyond. ●

Eat The next day we headed the Boxster towards TEN MINUTES BY TRACTOR winery/restaurant, where we had lunch after an excellent at-table wine tasting from a highly knowledgeable sommelier. We settled in to taste the Estate Chardonnay 2014 and the McCutcheon Pinot Noir 2013. Outstanding. The winery restaurant’s casual country-house setting belies its serious ambition as a fine diner in the country (with an Age Good Food Guide hat). You will be guided to wines matching the food or mood. We tried the Tasmanian rabbit ballotine, the roasted breast of Great Ocean Road duck, and finished with slow-roasted blueberries and a blueberry mousse with lemon aspen ice cream and marscapone snow. Large wow factor. ●

delivered with such disarming smoothness it’s easy to go into deep illegality without realising. Overtaking is ridiculously simple, you’re out and back in a flash even on half pedal. Don’t give this car full pedal until you’re completely prepared for what happens. The acceleration presses you back in your seat so hard you’ll hang onto the wheel more as an anchor than a control. Suburban housewife gets to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds, experiences jubilation. The GTR is beautifully finished and appointed, even the base (non-leather) edition, but forget the back seat, even for children. The gap between it and the front seat is something you’d post a letter through. The boot is good for a weekend away with a couple of soft bags and maybe a case of wine. I’m surprised I liked this car so much. Just note that you will need to keep your cute little hatchback for any task other than sheer indulgence. ●

(ISTOCK)

the faster it goes around. There has to be a limit to this and I’m truly relieved I didn’t reach it. Yet the ride quality, while certainly firm, isn’t sharp. Excellent seating helps to make the GTR surprisingly comfortable over long distances. There’s a cacophony of mechanical noises – tyres, transmission, driveline and glorious engine burble as the big V6 rockets to 7500rpm. For an enthusiast this is a symphony, pure and simple. The price is filling up with only the most expensive 98 RON fuel, and the GTR takes heaps of it. It is a true supercar and it need make no excuses to anything that costs under half a mil. As such, it’s bargain basement, but it still has a hard row to hoe. Lots of GTRs, only some of them genuine, have been privately imported and they’re a lead weight on resale value. And the price falls comfortably in Maserati territory. ●

he right curtains or blinds not only block out the light and bring privacy to your home, they can also add a definite sense of style. Window dressings can either become the visual focus of a room, adding pizzazz to the overall layout or colour, or they can be more subdued, complementing the furnishings and artwork within. There are a lot of choices available for curtains, shutters and blinds. Ben Hale from Timbershades in Moorabbin says choosing the function of a window dressing can make it easier to make a decision. “Our advice is really to get an understanding of what you want the curtain to do,” he says. “Do you want to use it as a blockout for light? For insulation? Or for window dressing to liven up the window? That can really help decide what to choose for your windows.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au » timbershades.com.au

dictate your choice. In Melbourne, those with periodstyle houses might choose plantation shutters or heavy curtains. Modern homes are more likely to suit simple blinds with clean lines.

Ask for advice \ Asking the experts for their tips can give you some great ideas and help make the choice easier. ●

Marcel Gasking share’s his top tips for creating a relaxing space.

1

Find a rug that complements the tones in your room. This will create a sense of comfort and frame the space.

2

Select an armchair, using a sumptuous fabric that feels like it envelops you when you sit in it. Rich velvets for a warming environment or a soft leather for a more contemporary look are great options.

3

Think about your colour tones and add some pattern that will give highlights to the space. Bold cushions with texture are a clever way to add interest. Mix up cushion sizes to create depth and contrast.

4

Including a side table in your cosy corner will help add proportion to the space. A tall side table with a lamp next to the armchair creates ambience and light.

5

Add accessories such as a bookshelf, a vase of flowers or a piece of art to complete the corner and make it a perfect escape.

HAMPTON \ 6 EARLSFIELD ROAD

C

all it the Dendy Beach Refrain: “These bathing boxes are so adorable! I could live in one, if only it was, like, a bit bigger …’’ Just up the dunes and across the Esplanade, Green Point is that bathing box writ large. A lathe-and-plaster cottage that became a mansion, this weatherboard beauty has gazed out to sea since 1884. However, the house is more modern than Victorian. In the 1980s, designer John Coote deftly added the slate-roofed second storey, though it’s impossible to tell where old and new meet in the front rooms; the upper floor has the high ceilings and tall bay windows of the rooms below. Coote unified them with the balmiest palette this side of paradise, its pale greens, blues and yellows ushering in the colours of the beach and bay. These days Green Point is large and comfortable, with three living areas, five bedrooms, a pool and a panoramic view from Portsea to the city and around to the You Yangs from its firstfloor balcony. The four-car garage has hosted some seething dance parties – approved by the dad of the house, who says his three kids’ happy, congenial attitude might never have flourished had the family not moved to Brighton 20 years ago. “In Caulfield, I don’t think they moved off our quarter-acre block,” he says. “Here, during summer, they roamed the beach and swam and had a glorious existence. They made a lot more friends because they were outdoors more. To this day, those friendships have lasted, and they’re all in their 30s now.” Green Point, he says, “fitted us like a well-worn glove. It isn’t too precious. It has a lived-in feeling”. In the front living and dining rooms, the mood is of lighthearted splendour, with bay windows that catch the sparkling light across the hedged garden. Both have hand-painted faux marble woodwork and friezes of leaves, garlands and grapes picked out in pink, green and blue with gold details. The living room has a grey marble fireplace. That’s that for the old house. Follow the sandstone central hall past the butler’s pantry, which eases the separation between the dining room and kitchen. Next door is the main bathroom, tiled in green marble with a bath, shower and twin basins. The laundry has external access. Along the hall are three carpeted double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes; the larger opens north to a side courtyard. The rear kitchen, meals and lounge area, 12 metres long, was very vogue in the ’80s and still looks good. On its north side, five pairs of french doors open to the terrace and glass-fenced pool. The grey granite kitchen has timber cabinetry and Miele cooktop, grill, oven and dishwasher. The lounge has a marble fireplace and a door to a powder room with pool access. The attached outbuildings include a concrete-floored gym, workshop and four-car tandem garage. This first floor, atop the scrolled staircase, has the second living room, with fireplace, bookcases and the most glorious view; climb out onto the balcony for the full experience. Double doors lead to the main bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and pink marble en suite with spa and shower. There’s a fifth double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe. ● ALISON BARCLAY property@domain.com.au

Californian bungalows are to architecture what George Clooney is to human beauty – handsome, no matter how scruffy. This specimen is Clooney in a tuxedo, its good bones elegantly extended by its owner-builder. Even the backyard has been reborn in Hollywood style, with a deck and glass-fenced, solar-heated pool alongside the north-facing lawn. Inside, flexibility is key to a single-level floor plan that suits a growing family. Configure the living areas and bedrooms as three/four or two/five, as required. The front lounge upholds 1920s tradition in leadlight, pine floorboards and a fireplace. At the rear, the living and dining area opens to the deck. The stone kitchen has Smeg and Asko appliances and a skylight. ● ALISON BARCLAY

This double-front weatherboard Victorian, a minute’s walk from St Vincent Gardens and the Montague Street tram, is beautifully extended. It has french oak flooring, a marble bathroom, modern kitchen opening to a leafy, north-facing garden with covered and courtyard areas. At the front are two double bedrooms; the larger has a walk-in wardrobe and open fireplace. The open-plan living and dining area, radiant white below a vaulted timber ceiling, has french doors to the garden, a pretty lightwell deck and an open fireplace for cosy nights. The white laminate kitchen has gas appliances. The fully-tiled bathroom is at the rear and has a glass shower and marbleencased bath. ● ALISON BARCLAY

SANDRINGHAM \ 8 MCLAUCHLIN AVENUE If there were an award for House Most Likely to Nurture Family Happiness, this would be the prime contender. Built bespoke for its owners last year, the freestanding house combines old-school Sandy eaves and balconies with the gloss of the new and, at 492 square metres, it packs in a lot of accommodation. Four living areas, five bedrooms, a north-facing pool and myriad thoughtful details make this a place to admire and enjoy. Ladies, let’s cut to it: the dressing room is the stuff of dreams. The ground floor opens with a main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Along the central hall, the cinema has acoustic insulation, screen, projector and 3D facility. The kitchen, living and dining areas share a polished terrazzo floor and are linked by bifold doors to the covered terrace and poolside patio for ease of entertaining. The Carrara Quartz kitchen and butler’s pantry have Bosch appliances, including two pyrolytic ovens, a steam oven, microwave and induction cooktop. Upstairs, the living areas include a lounge that opens to the balcony and a children’s retreat. Three double bedrooms have wardrobes and share a study and a fullytiled bathroom with bath and shower. The second and largest main bedroom has an en suite with a freestanding tub, and that impressive dressing room. The house has a double garage, laundry and two powder rooms. ● ALISON BARCLAY AY AY

The beach shack is back – and beautiful – in this contemporary Cinderella story. Formerly a ’60s brown brick-veneer, the house was stripped and rebuilt as this single-storey-with-loft residence, one block from the beach, two from Sandringham village, magazine-ready and with all the charm of a hideaway down the coast. It evokes a boathouse, not least because of the pier sleepers that pave the car space in front. The timber interior is white, with a vaulted ceiling with skylights, and the floor plan is flexible. The ground-floor bedroom has a study area, sisal carpet and french doors. Breezes waft through the open-plan living and dining area, where Royal Oak floorboards flow to double doors and west to a dining deck in the small, leafy rear garden. In the kitchen, stainlesssteel benchtops add a macho touch to white satin cabinetry and Bosch appliances. ● ALISON BARCLAY A AY

Gracious in an exclusive streetscape on the fringe of Bay Street’s cosmopolitan cafés and North Road’s private school belt, this refined two-storey 1926 Californian Bungalow offers evocative and sympathetically renovated interiors that honour the home’s heritage. Beautiful period detail from hardwood floorboards, soaring Californian Redwood strapped ceilings and specialty gilded solid plaster walls complement elegant formal living and dining rooms with a functional fireplace. A cashmere granite and Jarrah kitchen flows to the expansive open-plan living and dining zone with a gas fireplace that opens up through six metre bi-fold doors to the north-facing private and secluded entertainer’s garden with swimming pool wrapped in Castlemaine slate terraces and a glassed summer house for relaxation and repose. Three gorgeous bedrooms with dormer windows and a large study or fourth bedroom are served in style by three bathrooms; while a professionally engineered sound proof acoustic recording studio or cinema room adds a unique finishing touch. Comprehensive appointments include electric gates to a double carport in this premier Brighton setting.

Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for most of the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery from 1963! He has now passed away but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,� Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision due to congenital cataracts even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.� No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.
