This is an attack “As much as I might have wanted to keep making an interest, I think as a member of parliament on small business’. you need to divest yourself of those interests “If that $6000 had opened doors and ends meet” and concentrate 100 per cent on representing opportunity and allowed me to expand my your community.” business, well you would think, ‘OK, well it’s Katos’ father, Angelo, who is now 82, started the worth paying that’. All I got was to hang a PrimeSafe family seafood empire after coming from Greece in certificate on my wall.” 1949. But it wasn’t only the business that had an impact As a former small-business owner, Katos says he is on Katos. He says he also grew up influenced by his attuned to the needs of the small-business community. father’s political allegiances. “Any small-business owner would say to you that they According to Katos, his father had experienced a want government to get out of their way and let them go war between the nationalists and communists while in and make their money,” he says.

It’s hard enough as it is. “It’s hard enough just making ends meet and going about your daily business, let alone the pile of paperwork because of a whole stack of red tape.” Katos concedes he may have continued with the well-known Geelong seafood business had it not become so difficult. “I probably would have. I would have probably stayed where I was.” One thing he doesn’t miss about the fish trade is Christmas. “Christmas was a busy time. That’s probably when we made our biggest profits … but you worked for it,” he says. “I sort of look back and think that for 20 years I didn’t enjoy Christmas. “I must admit that since I’ve been out of the business Christmas has been … well I haven’t known myself.

HIM FAME AND WEALTH, BUT NOT ARTISTIC RESPECT – UNTIL NOW, WRITES ALANA SCHETZER

It’s a peculIar Irony of australIa’s art scene that commercial success is so often

inversely proportional to critical acclaim. Bryce Courtenay sold millions of books but was snubbed by the literary elite; Kylie Minogue was dismissed as a singing budgie despite her platinum record sales. And Ken Done, probably Australia’s best-known and biggest-selling living painter, has only now, at 72, begun to enjoy the recognition as a serious artist that has eluded him for most of his three-decade career.

I

n a sense it’s a third act of an artistic career that started with a bang in 1980, when the ad man-turned-painter burst onto the scene with a series of bright, bold and joyous canvases and some eye-catching promotional T-shirts. Soon, Done’s trademark brushstrokes were emblazoned on everything from pillowcases to placemats, and sold through 15 Ken Done shops around the world. By the mid-1990s, his global sales had swelled to a reported $50 million a year. Then came the inevitable backlash, when his work was spurned by the public as well as the art establishment. As the 21st century dawned, Done began dismantling his merchandising empire, retreating to his studio in Sydney’s Rocks to paint in peace. Which is where I find him today. Things are just settling down for Done, after a tumultuous two years, in which he battled prostate cancer, sued the Commonwealth Bank and produced his most acclaimed exhibition to date. He’s in a philosophical mood as he contemplates the next phase in his extraordinary career. “As a painter, you always have to be optimistic, and what drives you is the desire to just get better

what you see on a coral reef,” says Done of his Sea Gardens paintings. “But I hope they convey something of the feeling of what it’s like to be there. “In truth, a lot of kids in primary school or kindy are very much better at this than me, better than most artists. Most of the time I think you’re trying to find that joyous feeling that you had when you were a child.” Done had an artist’s eye but he was also a pragmatist. He got work in a commercial studio in Sydney and worked his way up to be art director for advertising agency J. Walter Thompson. His talent took him to New York and London, where he lived with his wife, Judy, and won him a Gold Lion at Cannes, but still he yearned to return to painting. It wasn’t until he was 40 that Done gave in to his dream, renting a beachside studio in Sydney and mounting his debut exhibition at the Holdsworth Galleries. Ever the ad man, he made a dozen promotional T-shirts, screen-printed with one of his sketches, to give to the press. He was flummoxed when the T-shirts drew more attention than his paintings. “I wanted to spend my life as an artist and I had no concept of

“I wanted to spend my life as an artist and I had no concept of getting into the business I ended up getting into” and explore new things. I hope that my final stage is a long one and is just about beautiful things, beautiful colour and things you want to continue to look at.” Done’s eye for beautiful things goes back to his idyllic early childhood on the Clarence River in northern NSW. An only child, he developed a love of drawing. When the family moved to Sydney, he started Saturday-morning art classes and, showing a prodigious talent, left high school at 14 to study at the National Art School in East Sydney. For the next 4½ years he honed his craft in the studio, studying under esteemed artists, including John Passmore and Lyndon Dadswell. The colour and movement of Sydney Harbour that Done saw each morning travelling to classes by ferry would prove an enduring inspiration. Even then, Done wasn’t much interested in painting what he saw, but rather what he felt, creating exuberant, evocative images with thick brushstrokes and smudged lines. It’s an approach that still informs his latest work, a series of underwater seascapes, shown at the Tweed River Art Gallery in northern NSW earlier this year. “They are not literally like

getting into the business I ended up getting into,” says Done. “The T-shirts had a drawing of Sydney Harbour Bridge on them and people liked them very much, especially the girls from Vogue.” So began the first successful phase of Ken Done, the brand. The T-shirts led to tea towels and swimsuits. Soon, with the help of fashion designer Judy, Done’s signature brushstrokes were emblazoned on everything from golf balls and backpacks to pillowcases and coasters. Done fever spread to Japan, Europe and the US. But while he was far better known for his placemats than his paintings, Done insists he remained an artist at heart. “It always came back to the art. I took the position that whatever you were doing, whether it was a scarf or swimwear, it should be as beautiful as you can make it.” That wasn’t how the artistic elite saw it. As his international popularity soared, critics and fellow artists dismissed Done’s work as shallow and commercially motivated. The late Brett Whiteley once quipped, “I’d rather take methadone than Ken Done.” Until 2006, Done’s name was notably absent from

the Encyclopedia of Australian Art, which lists the nation’s 1200 most influential artists. Even today his work is held by only a few public collections, including two paintings in the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra. Done says he was never interested in conforming to the stereotype of the starving artist or creating works that defied explanation. “The fact that I have my own gallery and it’s kind of successful might be breaking the rules a bit. But the concept of starving in your garret and people not understanding your work is not very conducive.” But did he mind not having the full respect of his fellow artists? For the first time, his clear, confident baritone falters. “Respect from your peers is always a pleasure because it’s coming from people who have also devoted their life to art. But, again, there will be some people who don’t like what you do or how you go about it.” By the time he was asked to design booklets for the Sydney Olympics, Done fever was at saturation point. Suddenly a Ken Done pillowcase or backpack seemed more cliché than cool. Done was also tiring of running a global merchandising business. He wanted to return to painting full-time and began unravelling his vast licensing and retail network, until all that remained was his gallery in The Rocks. Away from the spotlight, he began to explore new subjects in his work. The darker tone of his paintings perhaps reflected the trials his personal life. In 2007 Done discovered a large part of his multimillion-dollar nest egg had been invested, without his knowledge, in high-risk ventures via an arm of the Commonwealth Bank. A protracted legal battle over more than $53 million in losses was finally settled out of court in mid-2011. Just weeks later, Done learned he had prostate cancer. The news turned his world upside down, but after a radical prostatectomy, he received a clean bill of health. The brush with mortality seemed to spark a new artistic energy, heralding in a resurgent third phase in Done’s career. In 2011, he won critical acclaim for his self-portrait, which was shortlisted for the Archibald Prize. The stripped-back image in black and yellow is a radical departure from the smiling, carefree visage people were used to. He followed it up with a similarly sombre exhibition for the Mosman Art Gallery, titled Attack: Japanese Midget Submarines in Sydney Harbour – a series of layered, complex images of the 1942 attack that killed 21 Australian and English sailors and six Japanese submariners. The paintings received among the best reviews of Done’s career, prompting some to reconsider their take on his whole body of work. Anne-Marie Van de Ven, curator of design and society at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, says the critical acclaim slowly coming Done’s way is “way overdue”. “Some paintings of his are a standout and I think we should see more of them, but as a painter, I think his work is yet to come into his own,” she says. This newfound recognition coincided with a rediscovery of Done’s work by a new generation, unconcerned with rigid definitions of what constitutes “art”. Not bad for a 72-year-old grandfather of two (with a third on the way). Done says retirement is not on the radar. Later this year, Perth’s Linton & Kay gallery will stage a retrospective spanning 30 years of his work – the biggest since the Powerhouse Museum’s 1994 exhibition. And he will keep on painting. “Some Australian artists, especially those getting to around my age, tend to paint the same picture over and over. Well, I don’t want to do that. I like to try to do different kind of things.” For inspiration, Done will look to his critics, even the little ones. “In the visitors’ book in Tweed [River Gallery], a 10-year-old girl has written – and these are precisely the words – ‘Really, Ken, I can do better paintings and I’m still in primary school. Next time try harder’. I think that’s a fantastic comment,” says the artist. “I take it to heart.” \ aschetzer@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.kendone.com.au We Welcome your feedback @

The HSV GTS revealed recently is said to pack a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 with practically enough power to match a B-double truck and with a top speed three times the legal limit. For its projected $100,000 price tag, what will you get? A car that looks like a Commodore with extra badges, guaranteed speeding tickets, and an acceleration sure to soil the underwear of most passengers. Does Holden’s management really believe this car will save the Commodore? It just might be the last as it accelerates into oblivion. Ray haRRiSon \ Bell PoST hill

“Coming over the last hill driving home from Geelong and seeing our towns, the water, the ships, the lighthouses and knowing you are nearly home … it’s a good feeling. As a parent it is such a great feeling to have your children growing up in a safe and supportive community, with a very strong sense of family. As a community we are very protective of our heritage and history and we have a strong sense of pride for our towns of Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. Visitors come here for holidays, and then they have to go home. We get to stay … it’s our home.”

n May 4, 1863, Victorian governor Sir Henry Barkly proclaimed Queenscliffe as an official borough of Victoria, and this month – 150 years later – the country’s only remaining borough celebrated its anniversary with a weekend of activities and community events. Queenscliffe has enjoyed a rich and vibrant history. Originally home to the Wathawurung people, after white settlement the area evolved from being a small pastoral run and fishing village to a gateway where gold-rush spoils were shipped to Melbourne, a haven for tourists and a strongly guarded fort and defence garrison. The borough, which is bounded by Swan Bay to the north, Port Phillip Bay to the east, Bass Strait to the south, and the City of Geelong to the west, is home to just over 3000 people, many of whom have lived and worked in the area all their lives. This month the town’s residents came together to celebrate the history of their region with events such as a community concert, art exhibition, creation of a time capsule and a civic reception. \ mhamer@theweeklyreview.com.au

renderings of what the car will look like without the camouflage. They will seize on the tiniest detail under their magnifiers to make judgments about the coming model. Sometimes they’re right, sometimes they’re hilariously wrong. No one ever seems to remember the mistakes. But if spy photography has a headquarters, it’s Death Valley in Nevada, where dreadful roads abound and the weather is so hot it will reveal any fault in a car’s cooling system. There’s a spy photography school, or camp, being run this year in Death Valley by Brenda Priddy, whose spy pictures have appeared in The New York Times and car magazines such as AutoWeek, Car and Driver, Automobile and Road and Track. Would-be car paparazzi students will be up for $US775 ($A747) plus accommodation and meals (out there the word is basic), and after training they will be sent out to snap whatever they can and sell it to whoever is willing to pay. Priddy won’t reveal the location of the four-day camp, and won’t bail out over-enthusiastic students, but she has staked out her favourite roads and a bar and diner where lots of testing teams pause for a break. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

“the cars are usually disguised with fake panels ... or patterned camouflage that ... makes the design difficult to visualise”

(SUPPLIED)

t all started in 1956 when a magazine editor, Jules Feldman, wearing overalls he had borrowed from the printers, strode into GMH’s Pagewood plant in Sydney and started snapping pictures of Holden’s new and utterly secret FE. Everyone in the plant figured he was meant to be there. Until the photographs turned up in Modern Motor magazine. Ever since, spy shots have been an integral part of motoring publications. My favourite story is about Wheels magazine photographer Warwick Kent who was sent out to regional New South Wales to bag a picture of a new Jaguar being hot-weather tested. A few days later he returned to Sydney with nothing, and after a deep and meaningful with his editor he walked out of the office to see one of the Jags driving by in the lunchtime traffic. He got the picture and all was forgiven. Australia is a favourite location for new-model testing, so it’s a favourite for photographers who specialise in bagging them. When I worked for a car company, we went to extraordinary lengths to avoid such people while testing cars in dust and hot-weather out of Alice Springs, even to the point of disguising our garage on the outskirts of town as an abandoned shop. The cars are usually disguised too, either with fake panels and lots of gaffer tape or, more recently, with patterned camouflage that breaks up lines and makes the overall design difficult to visualise. This forces serious publications to draw up artists’

Sport \ Daniel SzalinSki takeS the hitS aS cool aS ice, writeS anDrew MathieSon

I

t was the moment that has so far defined a promising career. One massive hit on 19-year-old Daniel Szalinski has echoed far beyond Melbourne’s ice rinks. The thud was heard all the way into the hockey-mad heart of North America. “The only time our sport here gets publicity is when people get hurt,” Szalinski says of the notoriety his injury brought to Australia’s emerging ice hockey competition. Nearly 12 months have passed since Szalinski was blindsided and laid out in the middle of the ice. The end result was that thousands of hits of a different kind ensured the Geelong-raised talent became a global internet sensation. While most Aussies wouldn’t know a powerplay from a penalty box, even hardened Canadian fans commenting on hockey blogs were shocked at the brutality of the impact. But ice hockey is a strange game which almost seems to revel in its violent history. “It’s good and bad at the same time, the publicity,” Szalinski says. “It’s a good way to promote the sport because I can guarantee people will come to games because they have seen stuff like this happen. “Our league commissioner [Robert Bannerman] pretty much said this incident has had 50,000 hits – that’s just nuts. “So it’s publicising our sport, but it is bad that it’s about me getting my backside handed to me.” The massive check on the Melbourne Ice forward was also a reality check. Szalinski suffered serious concussion and there were fears he might have long-term brain injury. He was out of action for nearly eight weeks. Fortunately Szalinski can recall the point

he was in trouble just before Gold Coast’s Greg Bay unceremoniously sent him back to the locker room, unconscious. “I saw [Bay] in front of me, but he was off to the side in my blind spot,” Szalinski says. “It was just a bad decision. “One of my coaches has said hockey is a game of mistakes and whichever team makes the least usually wins. “I made a mistake and it still hurts now.” Szalinski, who stands 180cms and weighs 79kgs, still reflects on how he could have been lower to the puck. “My coach said don’t play the blame game,” Szalinski says.

Now in his third year with Melbourne Ice – one of city’s two teams in the Australian Ice Hockey League – Szalinski is starting to make a name for himself, for reasons other than being knocked face down onto the ice. That’s no easy task among the defending three-time holders of the Goodall Cup, reported to be the oldest hockey trophy still actively running outside of Canada – it dates back to 1909. Turning 20 this month, Szalinski is mixing it with and learning from former (American) National Hockey League and European players on his team. “I feel a part of the team, but you sort of

have to know your place,” Szalinski says. “There are guys who have been on the team since the beginning [of the Melbourne Ice] and you have to respect that.” The story of how a former Bell Post Hill kid made his way onto an ice-hockey rink started when he was just eight years old on a family overseas trip and saw a Canadian cousin play a high-school game. “I saw them all going around hitting people and I thought this is wicked, so I kind of got hooked on that,” Szalinski says. On his return, an enthusiastic Szalinski started in a local in-house hockey competition. The following year, he joined the new Geelong side in the Victorian Ice Hockey Association. Since 2002, Victorian honours have been part of his annual calendar. Seven years later he was picked for the national under-18 side. His development in the sport was fast-tracked when his Canadian-born mother, Donna, a coach for Cycling Australia, sent him to spend his final three school years boarding at the Ontario Hockey Academy. That experience sold Szalinski on the virtues of ice hockey. Previously, Australian rules footy, cricket, basketball, even field hockey were all tried and then shelved. “They never really had the same appeal as ice hockey,” Szalinski says. “There is something about ice hockey that makes me enjoy it. It might be the way you hit people, skate and shoot, but it is also the camaraderie. “You have to be a part of it to understand it.” \ amathieson@theweeklyreview.com.au » http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ nhl-puck-daddy/watch-massivehit-australian-league-hear-playermom-133856473.html

GREATER HOME \ A Geelong builder has sustainability on his mind, writes SArinA LewiS

J

errard Byrne is difficult to pick out in a courtyard filled with exuberant coffee drinkers gathering over a late-morning brew in a busy corner of Geelong West. Byrne is quiet. Unassuming. Much like the houses this young builder is looking to bring to the Geelong housing market. I had taken a little time to do some research before our meeting, clicking through the digital photos of his most recent project, a house built in the Grampians for his parents to replace a home taken by fire in 2005. It is of rammed-earth construction and operates “off the grid”. But it is the aesthetics that are most stunning. It looks soft and warm, with its natural materials and shafts of sun lighting up interesting angles within the single-level abode. Even on a computer screen it is inviting. “That’s the big difference between white plaster walls and rammed earth,” Byrne agrees, taking “we have note of my assessment. “It has character. And to find by bringing the outdoors inside, it makes you better ways feel different about the space you inhabit.” of doing Byrne’s passion for sustainable building is not new. A father who built the family things” home from a mix of conventional and recycled materials kick-started an interest that today has him hoping for a future where cutting-edge, low-footprint construction methods become more mainstream. He speaks of architects in Iran and builders in New Mexico, each innovating with materials while fighting to have new methods recognised by governments and building regulators. It is a fight that he champions. “I have always been conscious of the mark we leave on the world. Statistics show there will be 9 billion humans by 2050,” Bryne says, “and, as we are damaging the earth like this at this point in time, we are going to have

to find better ways of doing things.” He speaks of the rammed-earth house, and the pleasure he takes from noting that the whole structure could be broken back down into the ground without a trace, save for a bit of metal used in construction and the house’s roof. Yet Byrne sees the development of sustainable housing as something of an uphill battle. He speaks of the flaws in an energy-rating system that fails to recognise the value of non-insulated methods of wall construction such as rammed earth. “Basically the energy rating is given by punching material into a software system,” he says, noting the system neglects to include a thermal mass criteria. While the rammed-earth wall may not have insulation,

Byrne explains, that doesn’t make it an ineffective material. To the contrary. “Rammed earth is a huge heat sink – it is so dense that it is just not possible for the sun to heat those walls,” he says. “In winter if you have a combustion stove and burn it, the rammed earth works to keep all that heat in.” Bryne is not shy in admitting he could talk on such topics all day. He appreciates the move towards a six-star sustainability rating on new building projects and hopes Australia may move on to a seven- or even eight-star requirement. He is heartened by the growing prevalence of solar power on residential projects (“it’s going bonkers”) and acknowledges the good done in creating awareness around use of renewable timber.

Mostly, however, he is excited by the prospect of his new business building houses for like-minded people in Geelong and the surrounding regions. “Your home is a place where you spend most of your time, so I feel it’s important for people to have a connection,” he says, happy to share his thoughts on the types of clients he believes will be attracted to his structures. “I really wouldn’t like myself to live in a big suburb where all the houses look the same and there is no creativity – no interest – in that most personal of spaces.” For now, there are some smaller projects on the horizon as he waits for his name and reputation to spread. Certainly he has the credits to back it up, having worked with builder Roy Kahle – who is also known for his focus on environmental sustainability – on construction of homes for people such as formerly Torquay-based musician Xavier Rudd. “It’s not for everybody,” he concedes of sustainable housing, “but I’m hoping that there are other people out there that are as environmentally conscious as I am. In the end, it’s about giving them options.” \ slewis@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.creationsinparallel.com

singles and couples living in three- and four-bedroom homes. By placing these people in apartments, we can put families in those larger homes,” says Dunn. “There’s always a need for social housing, or low-cost and affordable housing, and this is a central location and provides excellent opportunities for people in this situation.” The site covers more than a hectare, and about half of that space will be dedicated to St Mary’s Hall, landscaping and creating green spaces and play areas for residents and visitors. “We are working with an accredited landscape architect who has created a billabong-style feature near the hall and café. There will also be a boardwalk through the plaza and we’re using locally sourced rocks and local gum trees and grasses to create a natural-looking environment,” says Dunn. The architecturally sensitive project is one of the largest recent residential projects in Geelong’s CBD, and councillor Michelle Heagney, who holds the council’s portfolio for arts and culture, and for central Geelong, says the development will help stimulate inner-city living in Geelong. “Encouraging high-quality residential development in central Geelong is one of council’s listed priorities, and will be a major factor in the reinvigoration of the precinct,” she says. “And it is a great bonus for Geelong that the heart of the old school – a very important part of the city’s history – will not be lost in what is a very sensitive and responsible development.” Dunn agrees that the development will attract life and activity to the CBD. “You don’t get to work with a city block too often and create a feature that will draw people in. I think in years to come we’ll be able to look back and say we achieved a great outcome, particularly in retaining St Mary’s Hall and making it work in conjunction with people being able to enjoy this space. “The council is certainly focused on revitalising Geelong, and this sits handsomely in that space. It’s an opportunity to encourage other developers to take on the challenge of revitalising Geelong.” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au

G

rand is the only way to describe this sprawling Edwardian house. Its imposing façade commands attention, sitting high on a 1016-square metre block and surrounded by lush green gardens. Heritage green and burgundy-coloured trim are teamed with latticework on the return verandah and serve as reminders of this house’s early beginnings. It’s packed with period appeal and, unlike so many of its contemporaries, it hasn’t been modernised; instead its classic design has been embraced in an extension that incorporates today’s luxuries. A path through the expansive front yard leads to a decked verandah, the perfect place to take in the garden views. Inside, a regal entrance hall sets the tone for what’s to come. Pressed-metal ceilings are complemented by polished floors in the hallway and stunning leadlight windows in timber bifold doors on either side. A formal dining room to the left is carpeted and features a window seat, open fireplace and leadlight windows. To the right of the entrance is a formal living room. It’s spacious and bathed in natural light. The bifold doors into each of these rooms are a clever addition, ensuring privacy when needed but also keeping the heat locked in on cool winter days. Each of the four downstairs bedrooms has built-in wardrobes. The first, which also has an open fireplace, is further around to the left of the hall and the second is the next room along. The hall then heads towards the north wing of the house. Pressed metal features on the hallway walls and a lining board ceiling provide more period highlights. The main bathroom is to the left and offers the first real glimpse of the contemporary, with gloss tiles and a double vanity. But the neutral colour palette and antique accents, from the tap fittings to the heating vent, continue the heritage theme. The third bedroom is next along to the left, followed by a shower room and the fourth bedroom with a window seat. The hallway opens to a tiled open-plan kitchen, informal dining and living area at the rear. A spectacular timber atrium-style ceiling and large bay window add another dimension. Expansive windows and a feeling of light and space from the high ceiling draw in the sunlight from the north-facing aspect. The kitchen features rich timber cabinetry to match the timber ceiling, while gloss grey benchtops add a touch of opulence. Leadlight highlight windows are again a feature. A powder room and laundry are to the left through a sliding door, as is the carpeted staircase to the second level. There’s an office to the left of the landing upstairs, while the main bedroom is straight ahead. It’s spacious and has dual built-in wardrobes, as well as a large en suite. The finishes in the main bedroom, from the ceiling rose to the leadlight windows and tiling in the en suite, complete the period style used throughout the house. A leadlight highlight window in the staircase featuring a kookaburra sitting in a gum tree adds a little quirk on your trip back downstairs. There’s plenty of room for family get-togethers in the backyard, with a paved entertainment area as well as substantial gardens. There’s also a garden shed and rear lane access to a double carport. The house has ducted heating throughout, and the rear family area also has air-conditioning. It is just a short stroll from Pakington Street and close to the Barwon River and Geelong’s CBD, as well as some of the city’s most prestigious primary and secondary colleges. \ SARAH BIESKE property@theweeklyreview.com.au

gEElONg \ 39 FITZROY STREET Nothing says refinement quite like a cognac room. That this stunning period-style house has such a space – dedicated to the pursuit of a quiet tipple – speaks volumes for its pedigree. The room takes you back in time, with its timber dado-panelled walls, fireplace and antler-inspired feature light. Such meticulous attention to detail is the hallmark of the four-bedroom house with a timeless style. Three of the bedrooms, including the one used as the cognac room, are off the central hallway at the front of the house. Beyond them is the formal lounge with washed timber flooring and an open fireplace. A wooden bay window seat looks the perfect place to curl up with a book. Across the hall is a massive modern bathroom with a luxurious freestanding bath, Italian tiles and double shower. At the rear is the open-plan living, meals and kitchen area, plus a compact study. The kitchen combines modern design with a hint of country house feel and has stone benchtops, Miele appliances and a mirrored splashback. Up a few stairs is the main bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe. It has been raised to accommodate the car space, which is accessed through a remote-controlled door from a side lane underneath. \ NICOLE MAYNE

This house represents fantastic value in one of Geelong’s fastest-growing suburbs. This two-year-old house has plenty of breathing space and is stylishly presented.

The pantry is walk-through, and the kitchen has a central island bench, dishwasher, and stainless-steel appliances. It overlooks an open dining and family area, which opens to a timber deck, partly shielded by café blinds. At the house’s rear are two more bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a shared bathroom and powder room. Ducted heating, double split-system air-conditioning and solar hot water and a tank make for year-round comfort. The garage has built-in shelves, and cars can also be parked on the property’s east-facing side. The small yard out back is convenient.

Entertaining was at the top of the list when this weatherboard house was renovated. The three-bedroom residence has been designed to make the most of the block’s north-facing aspect. The three bedrooms are at the front of the house, the main to the right. It has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The other two bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. Dark-stained timber floors in the hallway continue in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area at the rear. The kitchen has stone benchtops, 2pac cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. To the right of the kitchen is the laundry and main bathroom, with a double vanity. In a clever design feature, the shower and toilet are hidden behind frosted glass doors. Bifold doors off the living and dining area make entertaining easy and provide access to the undercover deck, with a built-in bar and heating. There’s a lock-up shed in the low-maintenance backyard. With the property located close to the High Street shopping strip, there’s nothing to do but move in and enjoy. \ SARAH BIESKE

This new, architecturally designed townhouse combines the best of modern living with a great location. Tucked in a quiet laneway beside two near-identical brick houses, it offers a spacious abode featuring the latest quality finishes. Natural light is in abundance on both levels – nowhere is this more apparent than in the first-floor living area with its large windows looking over the treetops towards Highton. These views can also be enjoyed from the neighbouring main bedroom, with its private balcony. The use of frosted and transparent glass in windows in the two remaining upstairs bedrooms ensures privacy is not compromised. A fourth bedroom is on the ground floor, off the hallway. The hall leads to the tiled open-plan kitchen, living and dining area and courtyard at the rear. The modern kitchen has sleek stone benchtops and cupboards, plus stainless-steel appliances. Stone benches can be found in each of the three bathrooms. The townhouse next door, with the same floor plan but timber flooring and deck, is also for sale. \ NICOLE MAYNE

t’s hard to imagine a bigger crowd in Crofton Street, Geelong West, than the one of more than 100 that turned out on Saturday for the auction of No. 36, a stylishly renovated, three-bedroom Californian bungalow. The festive atmosphere was warranted as Will Ainsworth (Ray White Geelong) took control and began the auction. A jovial bid of $100,000 drew laughter but it was soon on for young and old as five parties got down to tin tacks and pushed the bidding from $460,000 to $550,000. “It’s on the market, we’re playing for keeps now,’’ Ainsworth told the crowd. The bids came thick and fast and at $575,000 those still in the race kept the

The auctioneer worked hard to finally have the show on the road at $500,000. Three more bids pushed the mark up to $560,000, at which point the large, modern four-bedroom, three-bathroom property was passed in. Negotiations with several interested parties were continuing. It was a cosy affair for Michael Brennan (McDonald & Co), who decided to invite the gathering at 18 Fryers Road, Highton, into the property’s lounge as rain threatened. A couple of vendor bids – $330,000 and $350,000 – coaxed an offer of $352,000, at which mark the tidy, well-maintained three-bedroom brick house was passed in. It sold later to an investor for $355,000. \

commercial property Bookshop’s new chapter Maxwell Collins \ 5222 4711 For lease \ 104 Ryrie Street Geelong Price\ $75,600 a year plus GST

O

ne of the city’s most historic buildings, the former All Books for Less shop at 104 Ryrie Street, is available for rent after the company decided to consolidate its business at its other location in Westfield. Don Hough, of Maxwell Collins is handling the lease of the 1000-square-metre premises, with an annual lease set at $75,600 plus GST. Outgoings are included in the rental figure. The five-year lease comes with a further five-year option, Hough said. The property, which is owned by a Geelong couple, is zoned retail and is part of the CBD’s cultural and arts precinct. “At less than $70 per square metre, it is very cost effective,” Hough said. “Two parties have expressed serious interest in taking on the tenure. “The vaulted space naturally lends itself to use as a marketplace. “It could easily be converted back to a marketplace. It would also be ideal for the craft industry, or as a space for light entertainment.” Other features include an adjoining car park and easy access for deliveries. The building was built in 1852 as a sale yard. Its architect is believed to be William Cleverdon, who also designed the former Harvey Dann & Co. building next door. Elaborate writing in pressed cement on the building’s facade spells out its original purpose, but livestock haven’t been bought and sold in Ryrie Street for several decades. All Books for Less occupied the building for six years. It was previously used for selling antiques and second-hand furniture. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

GeeloNG West \ 3218 Ray White \ 5223 2040 For lease \ 5/240 Pakington Street Price \ $36,000 a year plus GST

Geelong West’s desirable Pakington Street has room for a new business to move into its tightly held shopping precinct. Jim Cross of Ray White said the 86 square-metre modern space in a new building offered prime exposure to one of Geelong’s premier strips. “There is a nice mix of professional, retail and hospitality business already in this building complex,” he said. The building has heating and cooling and excellent on-site parking, he said. The landlord is offering flexible lease terms.
