FIRST PERSON

I am David Dare … and I use the old methods, like in Mary Poppins I started doing this because I was helping a friend. He took off to Bali and never came back. Ever since I had my own website, it just went ballistic really. I think there’s about a dozen chimney sweeps in Melbourne, of varying quality. I use the old methods, like in Mary Poppins, with a brush and vacuum. It’s one thing that can’t be computerised. The kids love it. Sometimes they start singing the song (Chim Chim Chim Cher-ee Cher-ee). When I tell people I’m a chimney sweep, they’re a bit surprised sometimes, but there’s a definite demand for it. People get you to sweep their chimneys while they’re renovating and then real estate agents get you to sweep the chimneys between tenancies. It’s certainly not a passing fad. If anything, people are using their fireplaces more. There’s more atmosphere than gas, and gas is getting quite expensive. People think, if I can scrounge the wood I’ll use the fireplace, I’d rather look at a fireplace than a heating duct. They have to be serviced – it’s like anything. The soot builds up and it can be like cholesterol in an artery, it’s clogged up with soot. It’s not really something people can do themselves. They wouldn’t have the right equipment and a lot of people wouldn’t put up with the heights and the dirt. I wear a mask and goggles; you’ve got to look the part. Dead birds, possums and ducks, all sorts of things go down chimneys. They can get to the stage where they won’t draw properly and also you can have beehives in chimneys. I normally do them from the top down. People think you go up the chimney, but no, you don’t. It’s very important that people have their chimneys checked out before they light them because sometimes they can be capped off at the top. Sometimes you can have a fireplace but there’s actually no chimney there, so you can’t use it. What would happen? Well, they’d burn the house down. Normally in the winter months I work six days a week. I may do three days in summer, it depends. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone else, because I don’t want any more competition. ●

THE FORMER CHAMPION NETBALLER ON LOVE, GRIEF AND COURAGE DURING IVF TREATMENT

L

iz Ellis felt a strong responsibility towards telling people’s stories about their “infertility journey”. “Almost to a person, they all said they wanted to tell their story to help somebody else,” Ellis says. “Writing this book totally restored my faith in human nature because you can see what the human heart is capable of.” Ellis, 45, the former Australian netball captain, is talking about her book, If At First You Don’t Conceive, a “friendly” guide to tackling infertility, based on her own experiences, those of many others who shared their stories and a range of experts. To collate the stories, Ellis put a call out on social media for people who had experienced infertility to contact her. The stories, many told over the phone, were extraordinary. “I spoke to people who had the most emotional stories. I’d often speak to people after I’d put the kids to bed and I’d be on the phone,

them, their five-year struggle including five rounds of IVF and miscarriages. As someone who had been “on the infertility highway without a GPS”, Ellis was in a good position to make a series of calls to people she didn’t know about a most intimate subject. And it helped to be well known. “Yes, because people trusted me,” she says. “I cold-called IVF specialists and obstetricians, and when they knew who I was they were happy to sit and chat.” Her social media reach of 22,000 followers was useful, too. Asking strangers about difficult topics such as infertility and miscarriage was daunting. “There are no words to talk about the grief like that. If someone’s father dies, you know the words. If you have an IVF transfer and there’s nothing there, what are the words to talk about the grief for something that never was?”

“I want people to talk about it because there is a stigma attached to it a little bit around what’s not working, whose fault is it. Forget the fault, forget not working; this is what you’re going through.” – LIZ ELLIS

tapping away, bawling my eyes out because their stories were amazing. “To see what people are prepared to do for love is amazing, either because they love their partner or they want a family to love.” Ellis lives with husband Matthew Stocks and their two children – Evelyn, six, and Austin, two, on a 64-hectare cattle farm near Byron Bay. “We have a very gentle life; the kids have all the freedom in the world. They spend a lot of time muddy, I spend a lot of time hosing them down … they are my world.” Her book is a story of love and resilience. “I spoke to a woman who went through 19 rounds of IVF to get her twin boys. She miscarried twins at 20 weeks after 12 rounds and her story of having to give birth and seeing her husband talk to these dead babies … I get emotional thinking about that conversation. She was so resilient, so determined that she was going to have her family.” Ellis notes that one in six couples in Australia is affected by infertility. She and Stocks were one of

She says there remains a stigma. “I want people to talk about it because there is a stigma attached to it a little bit around what’s not working, whose fault is it. Forget the fault, forget not working; this is what you’re going through.” But people were relieved to tell their story. “A number hadn’t told their story before, particularly men. Infertility is not [only] a women’s issue. It’s equal male-andfemale factors.” Ellis says women and men approach the journey in different ways. “A lot of women I spoke to still felt like it affected their femininity, that the biological reason for me to be here is to reproduce, regardless of career,” she says. “When you want that baby, you want that baby. It was a hard thing for women to get their head around. But women are more able to talk about it. They confide in their friends; they’re used to having that conversation with people.” She says getting men to talk about it was difficult. “They didn’t want to talk to me about it because

there’s a stigma to infertility, around feeling emasculated … that you’re not as masculine as the bloke who’s got a great sperm count. My husband got his sperm count back and they said ‘you’ve got A-grade sperm’ and he was like ‘I’ve got excellent sperm!’ It’s such a pride thing.” She says the sense of relief when men did address it was “almost palpable”. “I spoke to a man who said he found it really hard dealing with his infertility … they used donor sperm, but when the baby came out that baby was his. He was so emotional in the telling of it, you couldn’t help get caught up in that emotion.” Ellis says it’s a story about love – wanting to share love with a child and the rocky road towards that quest, including the pressure on relationships. “My conclusion is that infertility treatment will exacerbate what is already there. So if you have a relationship that is strong but you need to communicate better, fertility treatment magnifies that and shows you must communicate. If you have a relationship that is rocky to start with, then infertility will absolutely tear that apart.” Ellis was impressed with the courage of people who shared their stories. “One woman said ‘I want my story to be a beacon for other women’. She gave me lots of notes and someone else gave her diary; very personal. I felt the reason they were giving me their story was to light the way for others.” IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T CONCEIVE \ By Liz Ellis $34.99 ● panmacmillan.com.au

He gave us good news so we pushed a little plate of Scotch Finger biscuits towards him as a gesture of appreciation. Then he told us the bad news so we slid the plate of biscuits away. It was just your typical dining-table, biscuitsliding, bank-guy, morning chitchat – and then right in the middle of it, we heard a snorty, snouty, snrrrrrrrrkkkkk vibrating from the nearby bathroom. Followed by a growly, guttural, achhh-achhhh-achhhh. A medley of greatest hits from legendary indie band Teenage Son and The Phlegm-Summoners.

We even considered soundproofing our son, double-glazing his nasal passages and siliconesealing his sinuses, but we couldn’t find a tradie who’d do the job, not even on Airtasker. So any time there’s people around, and someone needs to use the bathroom, my wife and I must initiate our Emergency Bathroom-Noise-Muffling Procedure. First we try talking loud and fast. If that doesn’t work, we turn the stereo up. If it’s still bad, I get the blender and crush ice at the table then ask if anyone’s in the mood for a daiquiri. Thankfully the bank guy was in the mood. I made him a small one. Without the maraschino liqueur. ●

But there’s nothing we can do about it: we’ve tried soundproofing the bathroom with cork tiles, but it just made it look like a scungy inner-city recording studio with a soap dish. We’ve tried replacing the thin, hollow bathroom door with a super-heavy, super-thick one, but the sound still leaked

THE NEXT READ

ohn Bailey is a broken man. After one too many shaves with death as a war correspondent in Iraq, Bailey finds himself back in Sydney as a 53-year-old police reporter, drinking to forget. Dispatched to cover an inner-city murder, Bailey stumbles onto a plot that extends all the way to the corridors of power in Canberra and catapults our jaded hero into a world of trouble. Tim Ayliffe’s debut novel is a crime thriller with the lot: murder, deceit, corruption and a hint of romance. The ABC journalist (full disclosure: he’s a colleague and friend who’s told tall tales for years) has a reporter’s eye for detail. Drawing on his extensive experience, Ayliffe takes you deep inside the worlds of politics and the media, with a heavy dose of international intrigue thrown in. Chasing the story, Bailey has to confront shady police, scheming politicians, Chinese spies and haunting flashbacks to Fallujah. Helping him out is old CIA hand Ronnie Johnson, who has mysteriously popped up in Sydney. A man well versed in the black arts, Ronnie ‘had never killed anyone who hadn’t deserved it’. Sprinkled through the book are Ayliffe’s dry observations on the media (the radio shock jocks who are ‘inflammatory morons masquerading as journalists’) and, in a line that will have all of Melbourne cheering, a frustrated Bailey laments Sydney turning into a ‘bullshitter’s paradise’. ●

Happily, the show’s jumped ship with a revival on the Nine Network, with a few tweaks. For a start, the Boomers have been ditched, with the elder generation being represented by Gen Xer, writer, comedian and actress Robyn Butler, funny dude

Andy Lee (the Andy half of Hamish & Andy) captaining Gen Y, and actor Laurence Boxhall heading up the first-time inclusion of Gen Z. While a lot’s been made of the generational shake-up, Butler isn’t convinced it changes the flavour of the show. “My team fills the same role as Amanda’s team [Amanda Keller previously captained the Boomers],” she says. “We still have the slightly world-weary, ‘you know nothing’ attitude towards the others. It’s the same DNA of human beings travelling through time, no

matter what you call it. So I don’t think it actually affects anything, except my pride.” While we’ve become accustomed to Butler driving things from behind the camera with the stream of awardwinning tele emanating from Gristmill, the TV-production company she spearheads with husband Wayne Hope, Butler is set to remind us that her on-screen chops are just as sharp. That said, it’s required something of a gear change. “I was a little bit tentative, because I haven’t been Robyn as Robyn, apart from doing publicity things, in front of the cameras for a long time,” she admits. “I’ve acted, but that took a

back seat, because I wanted to explore other parts of myself. “Increasingly, writing, producing and directing was where I was getting a lot of satisfaction, but the very first day we started shooting, I was like, ‘oh, that’s right’. It just was like riding a bike.” The move is also in line with a decision Butler made when she hit her 40s to make more joyful material. “I spent a lot of my younger career making darker, more cynical things, which I think you tend to do when you’re younger, because you’re not really concerned about mortality,” she says. “As you get older you go, ‘oh, I’m going to be dead soon’.

At this point in time we live in a funny old world: antagonist, human, disparate, and people are at odds. “In contrast, Talkin’ ’Bout Your Generation feels like fun, and I’m going with fun options.” All of that said, it is unusual for Butler to be working on a project sans hubby Hope. Is she going to miss him? “No. I’m contractually obliged to work with him on a 24/7 basis anyway. There is no escape. I’ve tried.

Hipworth received four offers, three of them from Boost Juice founder Janine Allis, but declined them all. At the end of the negotiations, Allis agreed to mentor Hipworth without payment. “It was an awesome outcome and I’ve had a couple of meetings with Janine since,” he says. “I didn’t really want to give away more than 20 per cent of my business because I’ve worked so hard for it. “She’s a really great businesswoman, so it was awesome to make that connection. Who knows what could happen down the track?” Hipworth was just 13 he began wholesaling doughnuts to a local cafe and at 15, opened his very own cafe in Windsor. “I went into business at a young age because I was really passionate about food and cooking,” he says. “Bistro Morgan is going great, as expected from our forecast of where we should be. It definitely keeps me busy in between school and life.” And if at times the demands of running a business and completing VCE are stressful, Hipworth says he uses it as a source of motivation. “There’s so many things that motivate me, but I think one of the main things is the constant challenges that come along with running your own business. It motivates me every day to do better than the previous.”

organ Hipworth is living proof of the fierce entrepreneurial spirit of Generation Z. For Hipworth, the humble doughnut represents the life’s endless possibilities. The 17-year-old has created more than 2000 Instagramfriendly varieties of the sweet treat for his Windsor cafe, Bistro Morgan. Currently, his favourite is a doughnut called The Cookie Monster. “It’s filled with cake batter, then it’s got white chocolate, Oreo chunks, some colourful sprinkles and confetti, and cookies and cream chocolate,” he says. This week, the year 12 student fronted five of Australia’s savviest investors when he appeared on the new season premiere of Channel Ten’s Shark Tank (Tuesdays, 8.30pm). He asked them to make a $200,000 investment in return for a 20 per cent stake in his burgeoning business. “Wanting to go sort of full time into the business and not necessarily having a full-on plan of where I wanted to go, I thought it’d be cool to get that expertise,” he says. “It wasn’t, for me, necessarily about the money. It’s never been. It’s just about doing what you love. I thought being able to get that experience and expertise with someone who’s done it all before would be really, really valuable.”

Supreme ambition: Morgan Hipworth of Bistro Morgan, above; Melbourne Victory player Matthew Sutton, opposite.

Inspiring. Overachievers. Future stars. Call them what you like, but promising up-and-comers like Hipworth have the world at their feet. Talented and driven, these teens juggle the demands of their studies with the push of their ambition. It could be said that Matthew Sutton has been kicking goals all his life. But these days, he spends a lot of time stopping them. The 17-year-old goalkeeper is one of the newest and youngest recruits at A-League soccer club Melbourne Victory. His sporting prowess was spotted at 15 when he won a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, which meant moving from his family home in Sydney. “I really wanted to make something out of football since I was about 14 and that included many training sessions, games, lots of sacrifices,” he says. “It’s a big commitment and one of the biggest was having to move away from home and all my family and friends. But it’s something that’s not really a massive thing for me because I’m lucky enough to do something I really want to do.” ●

There’s even a term for it. “We call it ‘name sniping’,” says Jennifer Moss, founder of BabyNames.com and co-host of The Baby Names Podcast. “We get several messages, probably one or two a month, about it happening.” The anxiety around name sniping can be enhanced by parents wanting to give their kids names that are one of a kind – an especially modern desire and phenomenon.

When Moss checked the US Social Security Administration’s records for 1950 and 1960, she found that one in every three children had a name that ranked in the top 10 most popular names of the period. “Now it’s less than one per cent,” she says. “That’s telling us that parents are thinking outside the box and want a name that’s different from everyone else’s.” Sherri Suzanne, the founder of My Name For Life, a consultancy that helps parents select a baby name,

“belongs” to. “I have had siblings quarrel over who had greater claim to a deceased relative’s name: did the younger sister have a right to use the name, since she had a child first? Was the older sister more entitled to the name by birthright?” So, what’s the etiquette when it comes to baby names, and how can cases of name sniping be resolved peacefully? “There aren’t hard-and-fast rules about it,” Moss says. “If it’s a close friend or family member who’s considering a name, you

should really ask them first if you can use it.” If you discover someone’s leaning towards a name you already told them you’d picked out, Moss advises having a face-to-face conversation – but keep it light. “Names are very personal to people, so I’d say approach it in a friendly manner and be open to compromise.” And if you can’t come to a resolution, let it go, and find a new name. After all, in Suzanne’s words, “the world is full of amazing names”. ●

credits the trend for unique names with an increasingly globalised world and changing social mores. “Some of it is simple mathematics: there are a lot more names from which to choose,” she explains. “We hear new names daily on TV, in movies, on the internet, and in the news.” The experts agree that name sniping is a bigger issue when it happens within close circles, rather than among acquaintances. Suzanne usually encounters it when there’s a question of who a name

H U M O U R \ Writer Rosie Waterland published her memoir, The Anti-Cool Girl, in 2015. The darkly humorous book grapples with topics such as addiction, eating disorders, death and mental illness, and provided the premise for Waterland’s 2017 podcast, Mum Says My Memoir is a Lie. In the 22-episode series, Waterland and her mother debate the memoir together, and, like some of the best comedy, it blends humour with deeper meaning.

t’s no secret that when winter rolls around most people start to slip into hibernation mode. I’ve seen it for 18 years – the snooze button takes over, people run away from the cold, start eating more and it’s a slippery slope downhill from here. When September rolls around, guess what I hear them say? “I’ve done it again.” I understand that mustering up motivation can be harder in cooler months. However, the saying “summer bodies are made in winter” is one of my favourites. So here are some of my simple strategies to make sure you don’t let the cold get in between you and your goals this winter.

WE DON’T RUST \

As a boy from Tassie, this is one of my dad’s favourite sayings. So, remember, don’t be a fair-

weather Freddy. Get out there, get your training ticked off and certainly don’t let a bit of rain and cold scare you off. LAY IT ALL OUT THE NIGHT BEFORE \

One of the oldest tricks in the book, this a must when we want to make it as easy as possible to get up and out of bed in the morning. I’m always saying that when you fail to plan you plan to fail, so be prepared and get your gear out the night before so when your alarm goes off you can jump out of bed without having to think twice. KEEP IT INDOORS \

OK, so if you’re one of those people who absolutely cannot bear a bit of wintery weather, the good news is you can still get great results from training at home. My 28 program sees incredible results from

“Nutrition and training are of equal importance ... over winter, it’s pivotal that we don’t let our nutrition fall by the wayside.” people working inside every day. Just get your hands on a few of the basics: a mat and pair of dumbbells, to get that HIIT workout ticked off without even having to leave the house.

MATT CHERHBINO

RETHINK COMFORT FOODS \

When it comes to staying in shape, I always say that nutrition and training are of equal importance, and when we’re trying to keep fit over winter, it’s pivotal that we don’t let our nutrition fall totally by the wayside. However, when you get home after a big day of work and it’s a freezing-cold night, I completely understand the temptation to warm up with heavier

foods. The good news is, there’s no need to ditch your favourite comfort foods all together. Try my grain-free lasagne or my cauliflower mac and cheese for a healthy take on your favourites. FIND A FRIEND \

If your workout buddy is the type of person who texts you the night before asking, “Should we really go for a run in the morning?”, then it might be time to find a new one. Grab a friend who will not only push you but make you accountable (and will actually turn up for your workout). Don’t let the season affect your routine. At the end of the day, we know that our body doesn’t discriminate. If we over-eat and don’t move enough, then we will store extra kilos; that’s that. So, show your body who’s boss this winter and don’t let that great routine you established in the warmer months fall in a heap when the cold weather rolls around. ● ● 28bysamwood.com

Learning Spaces

CHRIST CHURCH GRAMMAR SCHOOL MAIN CAMPUS SPECIAL PROMOTION

E

xciting new learning spaces have transformed the heart of Christ Church Grammar School, one of Melbourne’s leading co-educational schools for K-6 students. Beyond the school’s beautiful heritage buildings on Punt Road, the redeveloped main campus was completed in time for the start of term two as well as celebrations of the school’s 120th anniversary. Linda Dessau, the governor of Victoria, will officially open the new building on June 6. Designed by Sally Draper Architects, the development includes an environmentally sustainable building in the centre of the school with six learning spaces, a resource centre, visual arts centre, science centre and an underground car park and storage. The six glass-fronted classrooms open to comfortably furnished breakout spaces designed for group and individual learning. Each classroom has reconfigurable, ergonomic furnishings, the latest learning technologies and includes a reading nook, a teacher’s nook and a special reading chair. The new building faces onto the school’s quadrangle, long recognised as the heart of the school community where students, staff and families connect each day. Expanded and upgraded, the quadrangle is now a multi-sports zone with a state-of-the-art play surface. Principal Chrissy Gamble says the new development brings a lightness and freshness to the school and has created a perfect transition between the school’s equally rich heritage and future. “We decided it was important to refresh the spaces our children learn in using design that matches the way we teach and learn here,” Gamble says. “We focus on the explicit teaching of literacy and numeracy and our new spaces are designed to ensure our differentiated groups operate seamlessly.” The new resource centre offers both books and digital learning and supports the school’s year 5 and 6 Compass program focused on thinking skills, science, history and geography and designed to allow children to learn at a deeper and higher level. The new building connects to the school’s music building, allowing easy movement through the school. ● LIZ MCLACHLAN

WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY Christ Church Grammar School principal Chrissy Gamble says the children are captivated by their new spaces. On visiting the resource centre for the first time, one prep student said, “I am in a different world” while a year 6 student said they couldn’t believe it was a primary school: “It’s so futuristic … I can’t wait to use the new science and art rooms.” ●

TELL US ABOUT BEING A STUDENT AT KOROWA ANGLICAN GIRLS’ SCHOOL?

I started at Korowa in 1999 as a year 4 student. It was a fabulous place to learn and I now consider it a fabulous place to work! From the start, I remember being amazed at the number of opportunities that were available to me as a Korowa student. DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE SCHOOL MEMORY?

GREG BRIGGS

I was an active participant in Korowa’s performing arts programs, so the school musicals were always a huge highlight for me. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BE AN EDUCATOR?

As a Korowa student, one of the things I was most grateful for was having such dedicated and inspirational educators, some of whom I am now lucky to call my colleagues. In particular, my former languages teacher and current head of department, Dianne Tamburro, ignited my passion and excitement for foreign language learning and was a key inspiration in my decision to become a teacher of French and German. WHAT MADE YOU RETURN TO KOROWA AS A TEACHER?

Korowa has always had an excellent languages program, offering Chinese, French, German and Japanese. Given that I loved attending Korowa as a student, considering it as a potential workplace came naturally. I was fortunate that an opportunity to work in the Korowa Junior School became available just as I was graduating from my undergraduate studies. Dianne Tamburro, along with a fabulous educator named Sharyne Rankine (who was the head of junior school at the time) had faith in me to take on the role of junior school languages teacher. I owe a lot to both of them.

I will be making a presentation about the neurobiological signature of the “Aha! Moment”, and whether or not these “Aha!” or “lightbulb” moments play a significant role in learning (and, therefore, in teaching). WHAT MAKES YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT

WHAT HAVE THE YEAR 9 STUDENTS BEEN UP TO

LANGUAGES LIKE FRENCH AND GERMAN?

THIS YEAR?

Languages were always a strength of mine at school. I always viewed foreign languages as puzzles to be put together; with each new word or grammatical concept I acquired, I was able to add a piece to the puzzle, and I was able to methodically work toward understanding and producing more and more of the language with confidence. I have always found the sound systems of different languages fascinating; in fact, I undertook two years of Spanish at university as well, as I’ve always found it to be such an animated and excitingsounding language. A love of travel has also spurred me on in mastering new languages. ●

The year 9 program is an incredibly exciting one. In term 1, the girls participated in a Challenge Day that helped them to develop collaborative, communicative and leadership skills. They then attended a week-long program at City Cite in the CBD, which involved project work on intractable social justice issues such as homelessness. We are now looking ahead to Adventure Ready Week in term 2, which will see the girls participating in outdoor and adventure-based activities.

At the southern end of Elwood’s golden mile overlooking the lake, Elwood Park is a $25 million project comprising 14 residences across three levels. Drawing inspiration from its location, Elwood Park’s gently curved facade will be interposed with landscaped courtyards, rooftop gardens and planter boxes.

Signature deco curves feature in interior walls, corner windows and a curved stone island bench. Principal of Mim Design Miriam Fanning says the interiors are inspired by famous galleries where the palette is soft visually, but robust practically.

unset Boulevard, this is not. It’s tiny, no-through Eildon Road, via Acland Street. Yet Granada – the elaborate Spanish Mission-style house that seems to intrigue everyone in St Kilda – has a balcony that would quite suit the ghost of Gloria Swanson. Arches, spiral columns, wrought-iron grilles and curvy Cordoba tiles say this architecture took its cue from the 18th century, but we think of it as historic Hollywood. Granada was designed and built in 1927-28 by Ronald Meadows for his brother, glassworker Frank Meadows, and his wife Mertha. Several creative people have lived here since Mertha left in the ’70s. One was restaurateur Jean-Jacques Demoz, who installed a commercial-grade kitchen which is still going strong. The current co-owner, here since 1998, wants to hand on Granada to a family who will “get it”. “It’s a magnificent home. I really hope the next owners have a good time here for another 20 years,” he says. Granada’s two solid-brick storeys enclose adjoining sunroom, living and dining rooms, an extended family room and four bedrooms and a front office (or fifth bedroom). The rear garden has a fully-tiled pool and a party-sized patio. The delight is in the detail, of which Granada is hilariously rich in originals. Art deco leadlight mixes with terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings and grotto-like corridors. The living and dining rooms are naturally lit by a “Juliet turret” – an internal oriel balcony below the vaulted ceiling. Most spectacular is the fireplace, whose Victorian-era Spanish and Australian tiles glow beneath a carved timber mantelpiece with lion and serpent figureheads. The family room, also with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace, has a conservatory extension that opens to the garden. The Argentine granite kitchen has a Waldorf gas oven and barbecue grill. Granada has three first-floor double bedrooms, the main with a north-facing balcony, and a ground-floor bedroom opening to the pool. There’s a modern bathroom upstairs, but the jewel is the ground-floor bathroom, with its 1920s hand-painted tiles, French-lip bath and chrome shower. The property has a laundry, a workshop and offstreet parking for four vehicles. ● ALISON BARCLAY property@domain.com.au

Five minutes’ walk from Bay Street and North Brighton station, this Edwardian is a disarming mixture of simplicity and oldtime prettiness. Leadlight windows, fretwork lace and a gabled entry enhance a floor plan that is just what a modern family might order – front main bedroom, two further bedrooms, sunny living and dining rooms and, at the far end, a modern bathroom and a study for peaceful toil. The original Baltic pine floorboards bring a glow to the interior, which has sash windows with plantation shutters. The two larger bedrooms and the living room have open fireplaces. The white kitchen is petite but well equipped with stainlesssteel appliances. Scope for improvement is easy: the property comes with approved plans and permit for a rear extension designed by Tecture. However, it’s immaculate and perfectly comfortable now, and the garden – a luxuriant hideaway with a brick patio and high-hedged lawn – is lovely just as it is. There’s off-street parking for two cars. ● ALISON BARCLAY AGENT \ Buxton 9592 8000 PRICE \ $1.55 million – $1.675 million AUCTION \ May 19 at 11.30am Scan the code with the Domain app to view listing

Classical, with deep eaves and a resort-style garden, this property is handsome inside and out. The two-storey house was built bespoke for the owners by Omnicon, and the craftsmanship – high ceilings, hardwood flooring, a magnificent terrace – is something to marvel at. The ground floor has formal and casual living rooms plus a large family and dining area linked by glass multifolds to the covered terrace. The heated, 11-metre pool has a spa. Five first-floor bedrooms and a flexible sixth (or study) downstairs make this a rare prize for big households. Three bedrooms have en suites and the main also has a dressing room. ● ALISON BARCLAY

Looking like a set from The Great Gatsby Gatsby, this house cuts a Hamptons-style dash in the Bentleigh West Primary zone. The interior is spacious and breezy, with ceiling fans, plantation shutters and ironbark floorboards evoking eternal summer. Flexibility is the key to its success. The main living/ dining area opens to a deck above the north-easterly garden; however, there’s also a chic little sitting room, off the ground-floor main bedroom suite, which can double as a nursery. There’s a second ground-floor bedroom or study. Kids arguably get the best deal upstairs, with two bedrooms, a big bathroom and a retreat with a city view. ● ALISON BARCLAY
