A BRUSH WITH STYLE

CovER SToRY Channelling retro chic, artist Megan Hess has made her mark on the world, writes FranCesCa Carter

O

ne night in 2006, Megan Hess was woken by a phone call that would change her life. Still half asleep in her St Kilda apartment, the freelance illustrator was told that a “New York Times bestselling author” was interested in her work. She suspected it was a prank call. “They couldn’t say exactly who the author was,” says Hess. “But I knew that with my style it wasn’t going to be anything male. It was probably going to be something feminine, chic lit, maybe Jackie Collins. I honestly never could have guessed who it was.” The author was Candace Bushnell, an identity synonymous with celebrities, cocktails, parties and Manhattan. Bushnell, whose own career skyrocketed when her Sex and the City columns for the New York Observer were turned into a cult television show, had seen one of Hess’s drawings in a copy of Italian Vogue. Attracted to her feminine and confident style, Bushnell commissioned Hess to illustrate the cover of her new book One Fifth Avenue – a work she describes as “part social satire, part documentary”. “When I found out, I remember I was in my tracksuit with my hair in a bun just thinking, ‘thank god you can’t see me right now’,” says Hess. “I was so excited that I read the entire manuscript without taking a break.” After dissecting the manuscript, Hess, 38, relished the opportunity of depicting the Greenwich Village art deco landmark. Using a back-and-white palette with subtle hints of colour, her response was to draw the individual characters in the windows of the building. Showing her inherent understanding of line and balance, Hess’ well-dressed creations immediately struck a chord with Manhattan’s fashion elite. Not surprisingly, the book became a bestseller featured in the pages of various fashion magazines including US Vogue’s prominent September issue. Impressed with her interpretation, Bushnell commissioned Hess to illustrate reprints of the covers of all of her previous books, including Lipstick Jungle, Carrie Diaries, Trading Up and Sex and the City. It was Hess’ springboard to success. “After that, everything just really took off,” says Hess. “And I remember thinking, the best year that I’ve ever had work-wise is the year I had my daughter, which ironically is a blur in many ways. But when you work for yourself, you can’t navigate when things will happen.” If the name Megan Hess isn’t familiar at the moment, it soon will be. Although she sheepishly admits she hasn’t written a CV in more than a decade, if she were to, it would include an impressive client list that spans from Paris to Hong Kong. Working with paints, inks, pens and paper, Hess’ expressive style has adorned the pages of Vanity Fair, Time, Harper’s Bazaar and nearly every Vogue on the planet. She has worked on advertising campaigns for the likes of Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Ladurée, Hôtel Ritz Paris, Tiffany & Co, Chanel, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Dior – she has even received a private commission to draw Michelle Obama. “That was one of the most difficult projects I’ve

ever worked on,” says Hess of sketching America’s first lady. “Drawing someone to look very real is always challenging, especially when it’s someone so recognisable ... but it was an incredible opportunity to draw someone with so much substance.” On the morning we meet in the stylish Port Melbourne penthouse she shares with husband, architect Craig Yelland, and their two small children, Gwyneth, 7, and Will, 3, Hess has just returned from Paris Fashion Week. Despite her jam-packed schedule and the stress of jet lag, she is chirpy, gregarious and instantly likeable. With a quick laugh and an unaffected attitude (perhaps it’s the native Queenslander in her), it’s easy to see why so many of her clients describe her as “warm”, “enthusiastic”, and “down to earth”. “Megan is amazing, a total professional,” says her publisher Paul McNally, from Hardie Grant. “She’s incredibly amiable, has a thousand great ideas and is one of the most lovely people I’ve ever worked with.” Effortlessly posing for the photographer, it’s hard to believe that just moments ago Hess was unintentionally smeared in Vegemite by her son, Will. “You can’t say no to a cuddle,” she says, laughing. Despite a sudden change in outfit, Hess’ appearance is flawless. With cascading, pre-Raphaelite curls and subtle make-up, she has a classical beauty that unfolds itself through conversation. “It’s hard not to love her, because she’s just so gorgeous,” says the Kate Burgess, the marketing and PR manager of Montblanc. “Everything about her is perfect, head to toe. You can’t fault her.” Just this week, Hess launched a series of limited edition drawings for the brand; taking inspiration from their various customer types, she has created a whole Montblanc world. “She’s one of those people that is so inspiring and, as you talk to her, you realise she knows her work inside out,” adds Burgess.

H

ess’ journey into illustration began in the outer suburbs of Brisbane, when she was 10 years old. Besotted with drawing, she vividly remembers looking forward to her weekly Saturday art class. “It was the highlight of my week,” says Hess. “It was always my dream to do something later in life that involved drawing or printing, but when you’re a kid you don’t see it as something you could do as a job.” When she was a teenager, working part-time in her father’s pharmacy with her two siblings, Hess discovered an early copy of Harper’s Bazarr in a second-hand bookshop. The cover was illustrated by Russian-born painter Romain de Tirtoff, who called himself Erté after the French pronunciation of his initials. Intrigued by the exotic and romantic illustration, Hess bought the magazine, initiating a lifelong obsession with the artist. “Erté is my hero,” says Hess. “Using a fine-point pen, he was able to create texture in garments. His unique style is simplistic in some ways but it tells so much, and that’s what I’ve taken from him, the idea that less is more.” Although Hess continued to draw in her spare time, she didn’t think of it as a career. At that stage, in the early ’80s, fashion illustration was in a state of decline. Art directors, who had for years used illustration as a standard means of fashion presentation, left little, if any room for the medium in their spreads. Under the illusion that graphic design was the

Picture \ Shannon MorriS closest thing to drawing, Hess enrolled herself at the Queensland College of Art, part of Griffith University. “The minute I got in there I realised this is not what I want to do. But I felt guilty if I did anything artistic like drawing every day. I thought I’ll never get paid, it’s too indulgent. At least if I do graphic design I’ll get to do brochures.” Graduating from college, Hess landed her first job with high-profile advertising company Mojo in Brisbane. Employed as an art director, Hess was forced to prove herself, working 12-to-15-hour days. “I thought it was really exciting at the time, but I knew I wasn’t quite in the right thing,” she says. At 23, Hess moved to London where her curiosity and enthusiasm encouraged her to experience as many challenges as she could cram into her life. From visual merchandising at Tower Records to retail work at the high-end clothing boutique, Press & Bastyan, for the first time in a while Hess was creatively inspired. But it was at Liberty of London, the venerated British department store, where the doors started swinging open. Contracted as an art director, Hess worked on a broad range of assignments, which included setting up an elaborate photoshoot with supermodel Erin O’Connor riding on elephants. “Coming from Australia I really only knew about two department stores,” says Hess. “I didn’t realise there was this whole other world … I fell in love with the whole

produced in a photographic studio. Using a customised ink pen, Hess draws everything in a black line before adding carefully edited colours and textures. “Photography has become so slick that in a way fashion illustration has come back because people crave the hand-drawn,” says Hess. “It has a connection with the viewer that is personal and intimate.” With faultless execution and a strong understanding of her subject, Hess’ drawings have a life of their own. Whether it’s a portrait, advertising campaign, editorial piece, or a limited edition print, Hess’ world is one where the characters have their own personalities. Possessing an old-school kind of glamour, the women wear all the latest fashions with poise, while the men are handsome and impeccably dressed. “Megan’s signature style fuses bygone glamour with chic modernity,” says Nikita Papas, the editorial director of FashionTrend Australia. “(Her) silhouettes amplify elegance and enviable style. Her heroines are sometimes demure, sometimes sassy … always alluring.” This month Hess has released her first illustration book, Fashion House. Drawing from her experience travelling and working with luxury brands, she has created an interiors book that delves into the private worlds of her imaginary characters. Whether it’s Percy Sinclair, the whisky drinker in Knightsbridge, or Tabatha Paloma, a French Riviera native who sleeps only on deluxe hammocks, Hess’ creations inhabit a world we long to enter, a place where gloss and beauty go hand in hand with an endless good time – be it an Indian palace, a Mexican spa, or a famous Parisian teahouse.

“let’s just say i haven’t had a really good sleep since 2006 ... but even though it’s been mad and crazy and very full on, i probably wouldn’t change anything” concept of the store and the way they protected their look and feel. There was a lot of integrity in everything they did.” Working on a furniture catalogue, Hess conceived a new approach to the layout: instead of presenting photographs of the iconic pieces, why not sketch them? After her first sketch, many more followed, and it wasn’t long before her singular spare brushstrokes caught the eye of an art director at Elle UK who gave Hess her first editorial assignment. “I remember I bought 100 copies of the magazine,” says Hess. “I was on Upper Street (in Islington), and as soon as I knew it was coming out I went up to the newsagent and found it. I was probably there before it opened. But I just remember thinking, this is it. I want to draw fashion things, it’s all I really want to do.” Today, almost 15 years later, Hess is not limited to commissions. With sheer ambition and a gutsy work ethic, she has mounted gallery exhibitions and has designed her own scarf, pillow and greeting card range. “Let’s just say I haven’t had a really good sleep since 2006,” she says, giggling. “But even though it’s been mad and crazy and very full on, I probably wouldn’t change anything.” Although retouched and edited photos may be viewed as the preferred choice in today’s fashion age, Hess’ illustrations offer a richness and texture that can’t be

“I didn’t want to turn it into a serious book; I wanted to keep it fun and light,” says Hess. “It’s more about the lifestyle of a person and all the little details like the dog, the colour palette, or what sort of fragrance they might wear. Because that’s what interests me the most.” Dedicated to her husband, who “designed and built the perfect house” that she lives in today, Hess has divided the book into three sections: her 10 staple furniture pieces, her imaginary character rooms, and her favourite style icons. And, like any brilliant creator, she understands every nuance of her invented world. There is no doubt that if he were alive, Erté would have saluted Hess’ rare vision and her inventiveness. With just a few squiggles of the pen, or strokes of a brush, she proves that people are still captivated by the simple art of an illustration. \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au » Fashion House: Illustrated Interiors from the Icons of Style by Megan Hess. $29.95 (Hardie Grant Books) To purchase any Megan Hess product, visit www.meganhess.com We WelcoMe your feedback @

PAY UP AND SHUT UP!

A SKATING THANKS

■ I parked the car off Pakington Street, Geelong West, recently but made sure I checked the signs first. There was only one “no-parking” sign, so I parked at other end of the street, where I was sure it was okay. You can imagine my shock when I returned to find I had a $140 ticket. I complained to Geelong Council, which wrote back with glee. The sign was apparently on the wall of the adjoining building. I went back to check. I would have needed a neck like a giraffe to see it. The council wasn’t apologetic, but the message was clear: just shut up and pay up! PaUl JoneS \ noRTh GeelonG

■ My personal thanks for your interest in the skate event (TWR, April 18). It was a great piece and the photos were fantastic. Please pass on my thanks to the photographer, Reg Ryan, as well. It’s always difficult to get positive stories about Geelong’s young people in the local media. Your article (and the pictures) published in The Weekly Review is the exception. Jan FaRRell \ CiTy oF GReaTeR GeelonG

ALCOHOL THE BIG PROBLEM What a shame we continue to say more police resources are needed to fix domestic violence issues and problems in Geelong’s CBD. Our government needs to look at the drivers of violence and our biggest driver is alcohol. ■

We need to change the alcohol culture. Stop issuing venues with late-closing licences and start regulating suburban package liquor outlets that sell cheap alcohol in low-income areas, obviously impacting on domestic violence. This also allows young people to prefuel before heading out to venues until 7am. If Mr [local member Ian] Tresize really wants to help, it needs a holistic approach, not just police. miChael mcmahon \ hiGhTon

A return to the Snowy Mountain scheme’s vision and mindset is required. Bob Katter and Barnaby Joyce, for all their idiosyncrasies, need to be heard.

WATER NEEDS TOP PRIORITY Why is water management not the top priority ahead of the September 14 election? The Greens and Wentworth Group have condemned the Murray-Darling Basin scheme, which relies on 50 per cent ground water to achieve dubious benchmarks. It’s little wonder the end-user – South Australia – has withdrawn its support. ■

Dark side of the City Drunkenness, drugs and underage revellers remain a late-night issue for our city, writes Paul Millar A recent study by the National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund found Geelong nightclub operators are working that almost 30 per cent of 6500 patrons with police and local agencies to combat a tested across Australia after 1am had a growth in drugged revellers who are causing blood-alcohol content of above 0.1.

operators, who face stiff fines for serving underage drinkers. Policed confirmed that they had established a taskforce to fight the problem and were already making inroads. Two 17-year-old girls and a 16-year-old girl were caught on a recent weekend with false identity documents. Sergeant Aaron Riches, the officer in charge of the liquor licensing department, said the girls had been caught in a “high-risk’’ venue and would receive penalty notices. That will cost them $300, while the venue operator will be fined $800. He also warned that anyone who passed on false documents was liable for a $300 fine. As part of a crackdown, police also recently issued penalty notices to six people who had been drinking in taxis on the way to the city. In response to ongoing reports of early morning violence in the city, Mr Holroyd said he believed the issue was overplayed in the media. “We are perceived by some as a violent town but the assault figures appear to be dropping,’’ he said. That view has the backing of liquor licensing inspector Carl Peers, who also attended this month’s meeting. He said Geelong had its problems, like any other city, but was no worse than other places of its size. Mr Holroyd and Inspector Peers, two key players in keeping the liquor accord intact, said there was still much to be done to establish any agreement on lockout times at venues. The state member for Geelong, Ian

Trezise, has called for a 1am lockout at venues. But Mr Holyroyd said that would create more problems as taxi ranks would be loaded up with revellers. “We do not want people leaving Geelong at one, two or three o’clock ... and driving to Melbourne,’’ he said. He believed staggered times ensured patrons did not flood the streets in the early hours. Professor Miller, an expert on alcohol-related violence, said the time that venues closed or enforced lockouts was not the issue. What was more relevant was the time they stopped serving alcohol, and patrons who “loaded up’’ before going out. “Predrinking before going out, consumption of energy drinks and illicit drug use were also found to contribute to harm and offending behaviour. However, it is high levels of drunkenness and predrinking that remain the major predictors of violence,” he said. “It is time we are all held to account for the risky drinking practices in this country. Governments, the alcohol industry, bar and nightclub owners and the public all have a responsibility to address this major issue and challenge our culture of condoning and celebrating drunkenness.’’ He said assaults in Newcastle dropped 37 per cent when the city’s nightclubs introduced earlier closing times in 2008. \ pmillar@theweeklyreview.com.au have your say

Cultural players kick goals, too he likes the orchestra and the orchestra likes him. - Robert M acindoe

Zarathustra by Richard Strauss, one of the masters of the late-Romantic repertoire. From its awe-inspiring opening bars (known to millions from Stanley Kubrick’s film 2001: A Space Odyssey) to it haunting conclusion, Thus Spake Zarathustra is a spine-tingling piece of music. The MSO performs in Geelong five times a year. Sir Andrew, a former organ scholar at King’s College, Cambridge, has conducted many of the world’s major orchestras and performed at leading opera houses and festivals. As chief conductor of the BBC Symphony, he led the orchestra at the Proms and on tours to Europe and the United States, holding the job longer than anyone since the orchestra’s founder, Sir Adrian Boult. The night after the Geelong concert, Macindoe will be in Melbourne performing with the orchestra at Hamer Hall but, come the end of the performance, he will want an update on the footy at the MCG. He is, of course, a Cats fan. “Sport and music go together,” says Macindoe. “You can’t live in Geelong without barracking for the Cats.” \ mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » Thus Spake Zarathustra, Friday, May 3, at 8pm, Costa Hall, Deakin University, Geelong.

eelong and football go hand in hand. Who can forget the way the city went wild when Geelong’s 2007 grand final triumph ended a 44-year premiership drought? But the cultural heart of Geelong also beats strong and true. Come Friday, May 3, music lovers are expected to pack Costa Hall at Deakin University to see the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra led by Sir Andrew Davis. According to a senior member of the orchestra, Sir Andrew is “a great snag” for the MSO. “He is the best chief conductor the orchestra has ever had,” said Robert Macindoe, the associate principal second violin. “He likes the orchestra and the orchestra likes him.” Macindoe will walk or cycle to the Frank Costa Hall for Friday night’s performance. He and his music teacher wife, Siobhan, have lived in Geelong West for 10 years, bringing up six children in the city. He is one of two MSO musicians from Geelong. Peter Edwards, assistant principal first violin and his wife, Jacqui, live on the city’s outskirts. “Geelong is a very cultured city with a very diverse audience. To a certain degree they are more discerning than the audience in Melbourne. They really study up on their music and they know what they are listening to,” said Macindoe. “There’s this mindset in Melbourne that Geelong is full of bogans and it’s not. It’s got a very good profile of people.” Sir Andrew will be making his first visit to Geelong since his formal return to Australia this month as chief conductor of the MSO. “We have a wonderful and loyal audience in Geelong,” said Huw Humphreys, the MSO’s director of artistic planning. “In Melbourne we do lots of different concerts with a focus on different music. In Geelong we have a very diverse audience of people of all generations who come out on one night.” The Geelong concert will feature Thus Spake

Thanks to the hard work of volunteers from the new lara Heritage and Historical Society, led by local identities ian Board and les Kelly, the museum holds loaned and donated memorabilia and artefacts from the surrounding area. Built in 1860, the hotel had been in the Darcy family for five generations. it was bought by local businessman lino Bisinella, who refurbished the buildings and embraced the idea of a museum dedicated to the local area. Society president ian Board is adamant the museum’s star attraction is the building itself. “The building is the showpiece ... it only operated as a hotel for 30 years and then was delicensed ... it was bought by lino Bisinella in 2010 and he has returned it to this magnificent structure you see before you.” \ Mark sMith

alk just five minutes with Alex Hickey and it becomes clear that this 18-year-old footballer is beyond reproach. For starters, he has an air of humility in accepting the plaudits of Geelong Falcons’ teammates for one of two standouts unanimously nominated by the TAC Cup’s club leaders. “It’s quite humbling for me, I suppose,” Hickey says of the vote of confidence. “I guess I pride myself on trying to do the right things – but more so with my actions.” While vocal co-captain James Tsitas is an out-the-front team motivator on the ground, the more reserved Hickey prefers to take players aside one-on-one to make his point. For good reason. He was born with up to 70 per cent hearing loss. Hickey’s condition continues to baffle doctors. “They don’t really know – let’s say, their best diagnosis is that mum had a virus, meningococcal or something like that, when I was in the womb,” Hickey says. “But apparently they’ll never really ever know and it doesn’t really bother me. The main thing is that it’s not deteriorating. “It will stay this way until it gets to a point when old age kicks in or maybe I listen to too much rock music.” Hickey has worn hearing aids all his life. Except when he plays footy. While playing under-nines, he tried to wear hearing aids under a helmet. But the devices didn’t cope well with the heat and sweat. “Early on, I had a couple of knocks,” Hickey says. “It is really painful to get a knock with your aid in. It doesn’t have to be a huge knock, just enough to shake me up a bit, and it’s not worth it.” On the field, an umpire’s whistle is barely missed. When standing the mark, Hickey takes a few steps back and is aware of his surroundings.

in five of his final 11 home-and-away games after being sidelined for six weeks with an ankle injury. The floating half-back flanker has likened his style of play to AFL stars Corey Enright and Jed Adcock. But Richmond onballer Shane Tuck, who has played on after suffering a perforated ear drum, has inspired Hickey towards an AFL career. “It’s very unpredictable,” an optimistic Hickey says of November’s annual AFL draft. “From personal experience, the deal is not done until your name is read out. There are so many variables and I am just trying to control what I can control. “What is past is past and I am just living ... one step at a time.” Hickey pauses and thinks about the possibility of being overlooked by AFL clubs for his disability rather than his performance. He comes to a thoughtful conclusion. “I think you’d be disappointed if that (hearing) was the only thing that held you back,” Hickey says. Amid the pressure of playing at the level below the AFL and with some future stars of the game, Hickey can laugh about his condition. That is never more true than at the Falcons with another former Geelong Amateur junior, Will Langley, who was born without one ear. He can’t hear on one side of his body and his condition sometimes affects his balance. Neither will listen to doubters. “We don’t really discuss our hearing problems,” Hickey says. “It’s more like ripping at each other.

BREAKFAST @ ... Who lives here? Craig Yelland, a director at Plus Architecture and his wife, freelance fashion illustrator Megan Hess, and their children Gwyneth, 7, and Will, 3. What initially attracted you to the apartment? It’s potential, being a large apartment on the top level of a Victorian [era] church. We saw it as a blank canvas ripe for renovation. What did it look like pre-renovation? An acre of navy blue carpet welcomed the visitor into a massive lounge room with four-metre-high ceilings. The proportions of the spaces were horrible. The materials were heavy and the plan was very inefficient. I could have designed the lounge room to fit a three-bedroom apartment. There was only one bathroom and there was no heating or cooling and this all added up to us seeing massive potential. What changes and improvements have you made? We almost gutted the entire apartment, adding a main bedroom retreat with a full en suite and separate his-and-hers walk-in wardrobes. We relocated the kitchen and added an art studio overlooking a New York City-style courtyard. The kids’ zone has a tropical playroom at the entry and a fun nook to play in. We added seven sets of secret doors to hide the storage areas. The entry sequence is separated by a raised Calacatta marble entry lobby, so one can step down into the living area, adding drama to the space. How have you kept the integrity of the 19th-century architecture? The existing cathedral ceilings are enhanced with large crystal pendant lights and champagne drapes. Each of them frames a separate space: the lounge, dining, en suite and the bedroom. The materials also pick up on some old Victorian materials such as the scroll skirting boards and the pressed-metal walls. Why do you prefer living in apartments over houses? Oh my god, I could write a book about this one but here is a quick list: light, views, location, security, low maintenance, [ability to] lock up and leave for the holidays, acoustics. What is the most successful part of the design? The liveability. It’s a low-maintenance home where every room is used to its maximum. The kids have a zone, the parents have a zone and Megan can work with a view. The materials are hard wearing and don’t show kids’ fingerprints. Most importantly, everyone enjoys all the spaces. What inspired the house’s feminine, elegant style? Megan was my inspiration for the design. We needed large walls for the display of her art. Her art is very feminine and that gives the whole apartment a feminine feel. The materials are rich in texture and are strong in contrast to the black and white; this gives balance to the apartment and a bit of masculinity. What is your favourite room? Megan: The en suite. When I finally make it into a hot bath at the end of the day, it is pure bliss. I love the light and spaciousness of the room. Do you have any advice for our readers who want to transform their homes into elegant spaces? My advice is to keep the base of the colour scheme neutral so that you can easily create a signature look with soft furnishing and artwork. By doing this you can always change the look and feel without it costing a fortune. \ FRANCESCA CARTER fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au 20 The weekly review \ APRIL 25, 2013

Entrance: Old-world charm meets modern-day penthouse living. Office: Megan’s illustrations surround her working space. Splashback: A 16th-century etching of the Ball of Versailles makes a stunning splashback. Bathroom: Ornate gilt mirrors add to the drama and luxe feel. Living: Cathedral ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass add to the sense of living among the clouds.

his exclusive waterfront apartment ticks all the boxes. From the stunning location to the stylish finishes throughout, it is the ultimate in contemporary inner-city living. Singles, executive couples and downsizers will love the open-plan design, which offers a luxury lifestyle and makes entertaining easy. The apartment is big enough to cater for dinner parties and barbecues on the balcony, but at the same time it’s compact enough to ensure maintenance is minimal. It is also a great opportunity for investors. The apartment complex, which is eight storeys high, was completed a couple of years back on a prime corner block just metres from the Geelong Yacht Club. The entrance to the building is secure, while gloss tiles and a wall mirror in the foyer create a sense of opulence along the walkway to the lift. The apartment, on the fourth floor, has been carefully designed to make the most of the north-east outlook. You get a real sense of light and space the minute you set foot in the door. The tiled entrance to the apartment opens directly to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas. The designer kitchen, to the right, has Miele appliances and has been tastefully decorated to create a real mesh of contemporary and coastal chic. A striking timber veneer has been used to break up the clinical white of the cabinetry and adds a real warmth to the area. A shelf above the bench is a clever touch, while the timber veneer is also used to disguise the integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, creating a flow to the area. An expansive island bench, with stone benchtop, provides plenty of storage space. To the right of the kitchen is a sliding door to the main bathroom, which has large floor-to-ceiling tiles in white and mocha, as well as a shower and white vanity. There’s a European laundry behind white gloss bifold

doors on either side of the walkway to the bathroom – again a clever design feature to make the most of the space without impacting on the living areas. The dining and living areas behind the kitchen are carpeted, with downlights throughout. A raised ceiling adds to the sleek lines and modern design. There’s a glass sliding door to the expansive tiled balcony, which overlooks leafy Austin Park and offers views of Eastern Beach. The balcony is the perfect place to entertain guests – you get to soak up the buzz of the vibrant waterfront life without moving an inch. The first of the three bedrooms is off to the right of the living area and has built-in wardrobes and a window nook. A second bedroom, also with built-in wardrobes, is behind it and has its own private balcony with bay views. The main bedroom is to the left of the open-plan space and runs the length of the apartment. There’s a sliding door to a well-appointed walk-in wardrobe, while the light-filled sleeping zone is around to the right and has a sliding door to the main balcony and direct views to the water. What a way to wake up. The en suite is to the left of the built-in wardrobe and has a separate bath, large shower and a double vanity. There’s also a convenient study space. Given the location, you won’t need to use your car often, but the apartment does have two secure underground car parking spots. The apartment, which has heating and cooling throughout, comes fully furnished, as viewed, meaning there’s absolutely nothing left to do but simply move in and enjoy everything this residence and its stunning surrounds have to offer. The waterfront’s finest restaurants, bars and cafés are right on your doorstep, while Geelong’s city centre is just a short stroll away. \ SARAH BIESKE property@theweeklyreview.com.au

The upper level houses a light-filled L-shaped lounge and dining area, plus the original kitchen. Large windows are angled to take advantage of the outlook, which is even better from the deck above the tandem garage.

HIGHTON \ 11 DRYDEN WAY Glimpses of the Melbourne skyline are just one of the highlights of this impeccable family house in a premier section of Highton. The four-bedroom house has been cleverly designed on a sloped block to capitalise on its views across Geelong, the bay and the Surf Coast. Less than two years old, it is packed with stylish modern features and open-plan living ideal for entertaining. A timber boardwalk provides an inviting entrance to the living areas at the front of the house, which have high ceilings. There is a formal lounge on one side and a large, tiled open-plan living, kitchen and meals area on the other. From the stylish contemporary kitchen you can enjoy the views through the stacking sliding doors, plus keep an eye on the covered deck and garden beyond. Waterfall edges on the stone benchtops set the standard for quality in the kitchen, which also has a striking tile splashback, undermount sink and wide stainless-steel oven. At the back of the house are the four bedrooms and a light-filled family bathroom. The main bedroom has sliding doors to the backyard, a walk-in wardrobe and sleek en suite with bath, double sinks and separate toilet. Extra features include ducted heating, evaporative cooling and a security system. \ NICOLE MAYNE

This extended and updated Californian bungalow is sleek, from front to back and top to bottom. The first highlight is the main bedroom en suite and walk-in wardrobe; a tiled room divider towers from floor to ceiling, making a bold statement about style and space. The other bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. In the hallway, the high ceilings of the original house have been maintained through to the extension, providing an unbroken line from the front door to the open-plan kitchen, family and dining area. Polished hardwood floors run throughout this section, a wonderful balance to the sharp lines and neutral tones of the walls and plasterwork. The streamlined kitchen has an island bench, stainless-steel appliances and loads of cupboard space. Two sets of adjacent glass, bifold doors lead to extensive outdoor decking. The house is finished with quality fixtures and fittings, including CaesarStone benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and has ducted heating and cooling. It is in a great pocket of Geelong West, close to Pakington Street. \ PAUL CHAPPLE

A large allotment in a sought-after pocket of Highton’s river precinct makes this property the ideal purchase for families. The brick veneer three-bedroom house has had just one owner since it was built 40 years ago and offers the perfect foundation to create your dream home. Opposite the entrance is a spacious living area, which opens onto the backyard. Expansive windows bathe the room in natural light. There’s also direct entry to the dining room from the lounge, while there’s a third bedroom or study on the other side of the hallway. The kitchen at the north end of the house has been updated and has stainless-steel appliances and timber cabinetry. There is access to the double carport and a laundry with built-in cupboards nearby. The second toilet is behind the laundry. At the south end of the house are two more bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, as well as a toilet and separate shower room and bathroom – a trademark of 1970s design. The gorgeous sloping backyard enjoys views to central Geelong. \ SARAH BIESKE

At the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac stands this grand two-storey brick house on an equally majestic 1057-square metre block.

Huge windows fill the space with light and if you’re looking for a quieter spot to relax, a separate carpeted living area is at the front of the house. The main bedroom is understated and elegant and has a walk-in wardrobe and contemporary en suite. The remaining two bedrooms are lively with vibrant wallpapers to delight young imaginations and they share a bathroom with bath and separate toilet. Soak up the sun in the backyard from the north-facing deck or get your hands dirty in the huge vegetable garden. You’ll be comfortable with ducted heating throughout, air-conditioning in the main living area and ceiling fans in the bedrooms. Enjoy secure parking with the remote-controlled double garage with direct interior access for extra convenience. \ TIFFANY PILCHER

commercial property No Barrier Innovative Geelong company Barrier Group has paid $3 million for the Devlin Brothers Transport site in North Geelong. Don Hough, of Maxwell Collins, sold the transport depot at 58 Separation Street. The purchase will replace four separate buildings Barrier Group presently uses. “We want to bring the Separation Street site up to the standard of our other buildings,” general manager Stuart Bell says. “At the moment we occupy four buildings and we want to consolidate all our operations under one roof.” The conversion will include a $1 million refurbishment of one of the existing buildings to create a two-storey office building, Bell says. Barrier Group designs develops, manufactures and supplies more than 400 warehouse safety, road safety, crowd control and forklift separation products. Among its range are retractable bollards, slow-motion speed humps, wheel stops, bike rails, expandable barriers, event fencing and queue management systems. Big warehouses, office complexes and educational institutions such as universities are big buyers of Barrier Group products. Major clients include Geelong City Council, Ford, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Crown Casino, Melbourne, GlaxoSmithKline, Melbourne, Perth, Wellington and Seattle airports, Departments of Justice in Victoria and Queensland, Woodside Petroleum, WA, and Nellis air force base in Nevada, USA. The company was established in Melbourne as a single-product business in 1999 with three staff. In 2003, managing director Rick Hall took the bollards part of the business and relocated to Geelong. Barrier Group now has 30 staff and an annual turnover of $6.5 million. “The business advantage for us being in Geelong is getting local people,” Bell says. “We get people who are committed to staying in Geelong and bringing up their families here.” \
