Meet the Downsizers For Brian Stacey and Rodney Smith there are no surprises in the current market trend to downsized homes. Long-time Fasham designer Brian (pictured—striped shirt) and industry veteran Rodney have not just seen this coming, they have for two decades been front and centre in the push for smaller, smarter homes as a wise, environmentally sustainable alternative to the MacMansions of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Fasham design and build individual homes for individual clients. We’ve been doing this for four decades for people at all stages of life, but our core client base has always been the baby boomer generation. And now the baby-boomers are downsizing in droves. If you are about to downsize too, you could do a lot worse than talk to Brian or Rodney. Here’s how it works. First, we suggest, you visit our website (address below) to learn something of our design beliefs. Secondly, visit our current display home (address also below). Whilst this display is a ‘grown-up family’ home we can talk to you about our next display (opening early 2013), which is very definitely a downsizers’ property. If you’re comfortable with what you’ve seen and learned then give us a call, asking for either Brian or Rodney. (At Fasham you talk direct to a designer.) Rodney or Brian will get a sense of what you’re looking for and canvass the possibilities of your land. They’ll discuss your budget too. Rodney and Brian function as a design studio embedded within a building company, which means they’re not guessing at figures—they have a very strong knowledge of construction methodology and costs. They’ll be able to tell you whether your needs can likely be met within your nominated budget or whether some reconsideration—of your brief or your budget—might be required. Depending on your site and your requirements it may be that $380,000 is sufficient, or that $650,000 is not enough. Perhaps you are in the fortunate position of living on land that could be subdivided, giving you the prospect of a new home to sell, and a new home for you. We’re presently designing and building for a number of clients in this position. Why wait another day? If you’re ready to make a move to a smaller, smarter home, why not talk directly to Brian or Rodney, designers for whom downsizing is second nature.

difficult to find. Indeed, you would read of these cases all the time. So I am genuinely mystified by what Cardinal Pell says. Could it be that he really doesn’t know the extent of the abuse, or even its reporting? I remember watching his recent appearance on Q&A, seeing a man who clearly lives in a parallel universe. In response to a question, he used an example of children making their first communion. He said, “I remember we were preparing these young boys …”, and the audience broke into titters. Pell looked confused, and tried again: “We were preparing these boys …”, and the audience sniggered again. The cardinal, looking bewildered and perhaps even a little cross, pushed on, but the double entendre was clearly lost on him. What Catholic priest, who lived in the real word, could use a line like that and not hear its uncomfortable double meaning? Perhaps only a man who believes the horrors perpetrated by some ordained officers of his church could be made to appear any more awful than they are. \

cover story

FASTercheF Gary Mehigan sits down with LOZ BLAIN at his Fenix restaurant in Richmond to forget about food and fame for an hour, and just talk bikes ... non-stop. Chef Gary Mehigan has one of the most recognisable faces in Australia. Born in Britain, he sees himself as a Melburnian but has been spending most of his time in Sydney lately, where the hugely successful MasterChef juggernaut is filmed. His multiple TV shows, two restaurants, 2½ cookbooks, product ambassadorships and family keep him busy to a nearly comical degree, but to this day he still makes time to indulge in one of his great passions – fast motorcycles.

I

’ve been riding bikes since I could get a licence. I think in England that was 17. I used to work on the weekends and I was just saving for a bike, because I wanted to be cool, you know? I was going to impress the girls. Yeah, I never did. I always used to think that when I got a bigger bike, that’d impress the girls, but it was never big enough. Because by the time I did get a big bike, they wanted to be chauffeured around in comfort. “I saved my pennies – in fact, that’s how I got into hospitality and catering. I got a part-time job in a local hotel. We used to work Friday night, Saturday and Sunday and I saved up and bought a CG125, which was a Honda single [cylinder], pushrod bike. We’re talking a long time ago. “It was completely gutless, but it felt like magic at the time. I took my test as quick as I could, got myself trained and passed the test, and then I bought a GS250 Suzuki. After the 125, that felt like a proper-sized motorcycle. I realised about a year after that that it just didn’t have the guts. It would do about 70mph (120km/h) on the motorway and just run out of gas. So I bought what they used to call a ‘flying breezeblock’ back then, which was a Honda CX500. It was a beautiful bike, a poor man’s BMW, and again, that jump from 125 to 250 to 500, that just felt like a million bucks. “I would’ve got knocked off about five times in London – all low speed, cars pulling out in front of you as we were moving in between the traffic. I remember a doctor knocked me off my motorcycle once. I remember lying in front of the No. 8 bus from Willesden wondering why nobody was going to come and help me. “We’d buy all our spare parts from the wreckers and it was always trouble, because I had no money, and it was funny that there were always no left-side parts, because that’s the side that everybody fell off and slid on. So you’d go in looking for a muffler and they’d say, sorry, we’ve got the other side but we haven’t got that side. “To be honest, it was practical and it was the only way that I could afford to get around – and get around fast. I couldn’t really afford a car, being a chef back then, and even when I bought a car it was just impossible to get around London. So it was always a motorbike. “I bought a VF500F when I came to Australia. I bought it in Healesville. The guy told me it was a train ride and a taxi ride from the city – it was Badger’s Creek! So I got off at Lilydale and the taxi driver said ‘it’s going to cost you about 50 bucks to get to Badger’s Creek’. I was like ‘What? This bike better be good!’ – and it was. “I used to ride from Box Hill up into the Dandenongs every day – I worked at a place called Bernaducci’s – I used to love that little line up the Sherbrooke Road.

There’s a little devil’s elbow, can’t remember what it’s called. I used to go up fast and down fast every day – and then I got to know the roads. I mean, in Victoria, obviously, there’s the Great Ocean Road, but coming back through Dean’s Marsh is just a cracker. I love that one and I love the Black Spur, but that road up to Lake Mountain is probably my favourite road in Australia, just absolutely beautiful. “Now I live in Sydney and I’ve been trying to find their equivalent. But you know, Victorian roads are bloody good – and that Lake Mountain road is well looked after because it’s a snow road. Halfway down there’s a beautiful vista right across the high country. “You can get out from work, go out for a ride, it’s what, an hour and a half, you can give it a good old squirt going up there and on the way back down you can stop and just listen to the birds and [inhales] take in a bit

“I’m not a psycho. I’m not a super-fast rider . . . I must be doing something right in terms of keeping myself alive.” of the countryside, then fang it all the way back down. “I bought a Honda VTR1000 from Peter Stevens. I loved the idea of having a poor man’s Ducati. I couldn’t afford a Ducati, thought it was a bit extravagant. I loved that bike – even now, it’s one of my favourite bikes. Most people would bag that and say it’s an old man’s bike, but I just think it was so easy to ride. I did the California Superbike School on that, up to level two. It was my plaything, basically. I sold that in 2002 and had a hiatus for about six years – just because we had a little girl and I never had time to ride it. “I got back into it after that and bought a Triumph Thruxton – again, avoiding the superbikes because I thought I was going to kill myself. Obviously you can kill yourself on anything, and then, ridiculously, I find myself on a track day on a Triumph Thruxton, thinking ‘why on Earth did I buy a Triumph Thruxton? Why didn’t I buy the 675 [supersport bike]? What’s going on?’ But I love it, there’s no frills about it, it’s got a lovely little feel. It’s got Staintune [exhausts] on it and they pop and backfire when I throttle off, and I just love the style and the fact that there’s nothing flashy about it. I commute

on it, pop up the coast for a coffee and I really feel like I’m part of that Triumph thing, that Triumph lifestyle. “My dad was always into Triumphs. He’s nearly 70. He came off and broke his shoulder and arm about four years ago. It was only the third time he’d been knocked off. He said ‘I’m getting too old. I can’t recover’ and that’s a shame because I wanted to do something together, go for a big ride together. That probably won’t happen now. “But my sister rides and her husband rides in the UK, so we’ve got to do something together at some point. When they came over to Australia, lucky enough I’ve got two bikes now. So Scottie and myself, he’s her partner, he took the Thruxton. I’ve also got a BMW K1300R, a naked bike, which is now my favourite. We went up the coast, up to Terrigal and back around the long way via Singleton and down the Putty Road. We swapped bikes every so often and it’s beautiful, it’s like getting out of a jet fighter and into a Spitfire. One’s instantaneous, fast, smooth, torque on tap and the other one takes a bit of a wind-up to get going, but it’s really supple and easy to ride – and you know it has limits to its capabilities but it’s a beautiful ride. “I went back to the Superbike School about two years ago and did level one as a refresher. Don’t quote me on the stats, but I think that BMW will do 240-250 down the straight, it’s just awesome. Then putting a question mark over whether you should go out on that last session of the day. Sometimes I just think I’m tired, I’ve been lucky all day, I’ve had a great day, I love it, but it’s time to have a cup of tea and go home. It’s a nice little decompression. “I don’t tell Channel Ten when I’m going on ride days. Last year we had a MasterChef party with all the Channel Ten celebrities, press, the whole thing. It was a George, Matt and Gary thing where we get up, give ’em the intro, tell ’em what’s happening this season, it’s a big event, cocktail party, Champagne’s flying. I had a track day booked that I’d never told them about. They told me the launch party was on say, April 15, and I thought, shit! That’s my ride day! I ain’t cancelling the ride day. “My wife does my diary and I told her, whatever you do, don’t tell them – just say I’ve got another commitment. They booked in to do rehearsals and, unfortunately, because I had ‘another commitment’ I couldn’t do them. I figured out it would take me 45 minutes to get back from Eastern Creek back to the house, grab my suit and get to the studio for make-up. I still had helmet hair when I did the opening speech. I was wired, absolutely wired. I was so wired that when I did the opening speech, the guys were asking ‘what’s the matter with you?’. I had to tell them ‘I’ve just had the BEST day. Gorgeous, 21 degrees, chewed a bit of tyre up on the Thruxton, tweeted some photos’. “I’ll leave that for track days, make sure I get it out of my system and then trundle home at 80Ks an hour on the M2 and go home. Then it doesn’t tempt me to pop a mono down Willoughby Road, and I like that. It’s a sensible approach to having fun. “A lot of chefs ride bikes. It’s more about working


unsociable hours, needing a good commuter and not having a lot of money to spend when you’re starting off in your career. So you end up finding people like Jacques Reymond, who’s been riding Ducatis for years, or Matt Moran, who also rides a Ducati, or you see some chef turn up on some crazy chopper incarnation with ‘EAT’ as his number plate – that’s Michael Moore. Or Colin Fassnidge, who rides an R1. It’s a nice little club actually. “It’s funny how bikes galvanise people. I mean, when I talk to [fellow MasterChef judges] Matt and George about things I’m interested in, like bikes, you just see them glaze over. I mean, they’re talking about tennis and golf, which I think is about the most monotonous game on the planet. I mean, I can handle nine holes with good friends and a golf pro to get me through it, but to go out and do that on a Sunday morning? You’ve got to be joking! I want to go for a ride! To those guys, they take the mickey a bit – it makes no sense to go out and risk your life on two wheels, whereas I don’t think they get any of the freedom or the thrill that it gives you riding a two-wheeled machine.

i

love a bit of alone time. Maybe it’s like a bit of a guy thing, but I don’t mind going out with a bunch of guys and not having a conversation about anything that important. Being in silence in your own crash helmet, enjoying the countryside, enjoying the thrill of the power and the open road. And when you get a beautiful road, there’s just something really – cleansing is the wrong word – something liberating about that. You approach a little bit of a bend in the road and you can see it’s going to be a nice sweeper or a series of sweepers and you can just give it a little bit of gas, and there’s this lovely sort of liberation for me of just letting that go. “Most of my life is surrounded nowadays by staff at my restaurants – I’ve got 75, 80 people working for me between the two restaurants. Limited amount of time, maximum amount of information. Sometimes it’s nice to go, you know what? I’m going to book that morning off and go out on my bike. It’s good alone time. There’s a few passions in my life – food, family, motorbikes. “I’m not a psycho. I’m not a super-fast rider. I’ve been a rider for a long time, so I must be doing something right in terms of keeping myself alive. I’m cautious and defensive in the city. In London, you had a choice, you’re either going to be a psycho, like the couriers – I remember riding along Park Lane one day and two couriers splitting either side of me, one bolting that way, the other bolting that way and you could hear them screaming as they went in different directions, they just basically raced each other down Park Lane – I could never do that. The day I got carried away I’d find myself sliding along on my arse on the tarmac. I had enough little reminders in London to keep myself safe. “On the open road I enjoy more to choose where I give it a bit of gas and where I don’t. Long straight road, think twice about feeding in the throttle. That’s preservation of licence more than anything else. Whereas, up the hill on a bit of twisty road, you can go for it, and chances are you’re going to have a great time if you ride smoothly. You’ll get to the end and have a great day. So I don’t know how I’d describe myself – cautious with the odd mad moment, how about that? It’s kept me alive so far. “I never look down on anybody who rides slowly. But anyone who asks, I’m happy to share what I know. Often I’ll just say ‘get yourself down to the Superbike School, or HART, or any one of them and just do the training’. “It sounds a bit Zen, but I try to live the moment. I pop my little tinted visor down and then nobody knows who I am. It’s quite nice.” \ lblain@theweeklyreview.com.au

Pigs’ ears

(DArriAn TrAynOr)

f anyone can get away with a wine list that doesn’t offer a single Australian wine, it is knowledgeable industry professional and wine steward Angie Giannakodakis. Even in her first restaurant. Giannakodakis, who pampered patrons at The Press Club and Hellenic Republic with aplomb for five years, says there was criticism when HP offered only Greek wines. She has copped a persistent drip of mild protest from parochial patrons since Epocha opened eight weeks ago in a former gentlemen’s club. But to condemn a wine list chosen with passion, commitment and finesse is to fail to understand the gift Giannakodakis and business partner Guy Holder (ex-MoMo) have given the Melbourne dining scene. “We wanted a point of difference,” Giannakodakis says. “It’s about our ancestry and the flavours of the wines. There are more than 130. They are good beverages for not a lot of spend and for many people it’s a chance to try something they have never had before.” Epocha, meaning “a new or distinctive era”, may be an antidote to the trend-following eateries around town. Every edge has been polished, every detail considered. There’s house-filtered still and sparkling water, house-baked rye and caraway seed bread served warm in a knotted cloth bag, antique silverware and vintage cutlery and crockery – and the bathrooms are downright sexy. Giannakodakis even researched the building’s history in the State Library, discovering it was commissioned by gentlewoman Hannah Mabel in 1884. The upstairs bar has been named after her. There’s an emphasis on old-school service, helmed with grace by Holder, Giannakodakis and a team of hand-picked, pro-active staff members, who blend efficiency and charm seamlessly. The team has been comprehensively schooled in evocative wine and food descriptions. As a sales pitch, it’s darn effective – but it also gives diners confident ownership of their choices. Chef Michael Bolam (ex-Sanctuary, Hunter Valley) describes his menu as “the sort of food that every chef wants to eat on their day off”. It’s rustic, home-style food that nods to pan-European traditions. Work backwards when selecting from the menu is the advice from the staff. Choose your large share plates first, then smaller plates and perhaps a snack. The dishes arrive in conventional order. The cote de boeuf (from Bolam’s butcher’s farm at

The regal 1890s two-storey terrace has been restored with love and devotion. Original floorboards, cast-iron balustrades and feature fireplaces have been restored to former glory, with ebony walls and spectacular bespoke light fittings that fan out from dark-hued ceiling roses adding a modern edge. Traditional woven-rush seats on green-painted timber frames and rustic timber tables set with heritage-patterned tiles channel a Greek tavern. Upstairs in Hannah’s Bar, named after the original owner, backgammon tables continue the Mediterranean theme. \

Romsey) is offered in either 550g or 900g serves. The 900g cut is $84, and suited to four or more as a share plate. Sides are needed, as the generous slab of rib-eye is served without accompaniment, sliced thickly on a wooden board. Our 550g of respectfully treated meat, finished with a beurre noisette and served with a veal and bone marrow jus, was intense and flavoursome. With potatoes roasted in duck fat and mixed salad leaves with a maple dressing, it was a hearty, honest meal. Other large choices include potato, calcot and gruyere pie, whole market fish and pork-and-sage faggots with bubble and squeak. From the smaller plates list, Bolam’s farmhouse terrine is a notable menu inclusion. Made from pork and chicken, minced and moussed, it’s delicately flavoured with all-spice and brandy and studded with dried apricots and pistachios. It’s served with housemade grissini, lavoche, pickled radish and cornichons, a delicate mushroom crème topped with a quail egg, and fresh apricot topped with a celeriac remoulade. From a small plate list that also included veal sweetbreads, lamb kalamaki, black pudding and a charcuterie plate, the artichoke and potato persillade appealed most. Its vegetables were treated to a merry bath in parsley, garlic, herbs, oil and lemon zest. It was a lovely appetiser, but perhaps we missed some of Bolam’s skill. Our snack to begin was crispy pigs’ ears – braised four hours, pressed and thinly sliced before being fried to golden, delicate crunch. The fine, crispy, oily tendrils were served in a silver chalice. Perhaps they would have been better enjoyed with an aperitif in the upstairs bar. To finish, an antique silver dessert or cheese trolley is wheeled to the table. Choose from an array of imported cheeses, or dessert offerings such as tiramisu, crème brulee, lemon cannoli or chocolate gateau. The lemon and ricotta filling in the cannoli was intense and sharp, while the chocolate gateau, garnished with chocolate sticks, pieces of brandy snap and a very fine honeycomb, was divine from brownie base through mousse filling to ganache topping. After many incarnations, including a private hospital and hotel restaurant, Hannah would be pleased with what has become of her home. \ ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

DECANTER \ SOUND WINE-SHOP ADVICE IS WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD

T

he need for a good relationship with your local wine shop is a common theme here. Having someone nearby who knows your tastes and can always recommend the right wine is invaluable. If you’re like me and the build-up to Christmas and New Year’s eve is your busiest wine-buying time – for presents and pouring at special occasions – now is the time to put that relationship to the test. Or to start building one. But it’s not just the festive season when knowing your local wine merchant comes in handy. Throughout the year they can help take you on a wine journey, guiding you along wine’s many pathways, or help you stray onto a wine path you might not normally take. We can all do with a little push in the right direction sometimes. If you’re unsure about how to get started, think of the staff at your local just like you would a sommelier at a restaurant. They should know about the wines on the shelves and be able to recommend the right pinot to go with the roast duck, or a riesling to go with the fish. Equally, if their recommendations are more misses than hits, it might be time to try a new merchant. For many there’s the convenience of the many online retailers that have sprung up in the past year. Sure, they may be a little cheaper, but sound advice is often replaced by over-the-top sales pitches and buzzwords. Also, unless you’re having a party or buying a wine that you know and love, six or 12 bottles of the same wine in the wine rack can quickly get a little boring. \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

where help is at hand

So, what makes a good wine shop? Three things are key. First up, there should be a diverse range of wine styles from Australia and further afield. For me, this means stocking a range of imports (especially cheap ones) as well as the usual suspects of chardonnay, sav blanc, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Secondly, staff should know what they’re talking about. If you walk into a wine shop and tell the first person who says “Can I help you?” that you like sav blanc but would like to try something different, they should be able to point you in the right direction and describe the wines they are recommending. A good wine shop also hosts regular tastings. This doesn’t mean they need to host formal dinners – although regular attendance at such functions does help to get to know the staff better. All that’s really required is the opening of a few bottles on a regular basis. It really helps to get an understanding of what’s for sale in the shop, as well as a good chance to taste a range of wines quickly and expand your knowledge. If there’s a winemaker or rep from the company pouring the wines, even better – ask all you can think of about the wines on pour. A quick note: never feel obliged to buy wines at these tastings, as the wine shops gain loads just from your attendance – loyalty and future purchases mean as much to the good shops as an instant sale.

TAsTE This Toolangi Shiraz 2008

Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose 2012

(Yarra Valley) $19; 14.5% ★★★★ lAyERED

I was surprised to see the price of this – it’s terrific value. The grapes were grown at Toolangi’s vineyard in dixon’s Creek, but made by Matt Harrop at Shadowfax in Werribee. layered aromas of black and blue berries, spice and cured meat are full of character and loaded with interest. Concentrated and dense, it has a core of berry and dark-cherry flavour, with spice, vanilla and a savoury herbal note all contributing. It has super-fine tannins matched with acidity that keeps everything light and bright and gives the wine a structure you rarely see under $20. Food match \ pork rillets

sAvouRy

(Mclaren Vale) $24; 12.5% ★★★★ ½

(Margaret River) $50; 14% ★★★★ ½ ClAssy

dominique has handed the winemaking reins over to son Ben, who poured me a glass of this while it was fermenting earlier in the year. A wine that manages to tread the fine line between serious and fun most years, this is another good release. A blend of cabernet, merlot and shiraz, this smells of summer berries, rose petals, dried herbs and citrus. Fresh and savoury, there’s light berry and cherry flavours and a luscious creaminess that leads to zesty acidity and a fine finish. Food match \ Salad of duck gésiers

Oliver’s Taranga Fiano 2012

Devil’s Lair Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Its class was clear from the moment it splashed into the decanter. It’s packed with red and black berries, quality cedar oak, spice aromas with added cassis, vanilla and chocolate flavours. It’s an immaculate wine and worthy of its price tag, but lacking character (in my book) to take it to the highest level. It’s smooth – silky so – in the mouth, with great poise and balance, and a load of fine, drying tannin. Good finish, too, with length and intense dark-berry flavours on exit. Food match \ Slow-cooked lamb shoulder

Pick of the week

(Yarra Valley, pyrenees) $22; 13% ★★★★ ½

TExTuRE

They’re doing great things with Italian white varietals in Mclaren Vale, and Oliver’s Taranga is leading the way. pears, apple – freshly cut and cider notes – peach, yeast and a bright floral lift provide delightful aromas, and there’s quite a punch on the palate. As pretty as the wine is, it’s the silky texture and fresh acidity that steal the show – they’re a delight. Rich lemon and yeast flavours carry nicely on the lengthy finish. Food match \ pumpkin ravioli

Bollinger Special Cuvee NV (Champagne) $90; 12% ★★★★★

The Champagne of James Bond (it was first mentioned in Ian Fleming’s 1956 Bond novel Diamonds Are Forever), this is a 60/25/15 blend of pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier. There’s real finesse to the layered aromas of apple, peach, citrus zest, biscuit and spice, which carries on into the mouth. It’s intense, too, with rich flavours of lemon, apples and pears, grilled nuts and brioche that seem to reach every one of the tongue’s tastebuds. Nicely structured, with a rounded, slightly sweet mid-palate and well-pitched drying acidity, it finishes with long toffee-apple flavours. Food match \ Smoked mackerel blinis

interview \ PETER WILMOTH MEETs COsTa GEORGIadIs

T

he owner of Australian television’s most magnificent beard spills out of a cab at the ABC’s Elsternwick studios laughing, bags and jackets flying. “That was a fun ride – that driver was hilarious!” he says. “I could have sat there listening to him for hours.” Costa Georgiadis, the host of the ABC’s Gardening Australia, is one of life’s great enthusiasts and it’s not just cab drivers he celebrates. He loves gardens, “verges” (planting out suburban nature strips) and the challenge of never putting a rubbish bin out for collection. He loves organic vegetables and the thrill of watching a child understand and embrace sustainability. But perhaps his greatest passion is compost heaps. He loves them in all their steamy, slowly writhing majesty. He loves them so much he’s the ambassador for International Compost Awareness Week (in May), and he’s host of the annual compost ball, the compost community’s night of nights. “That’s a cracker – I love it,” he says. “I had people come up to me and I’d say I was going to a compost ball. They’d say, ‘What do you do at a compost ball?’ I said, ‘You dress up as your favourite microbe, or your favourite piece of compost or your favourite bacteria and then we all go into a room and we all lie on top of each other and we put a big tarp over us and that’s the ball. We have the ball under there’. And they say, ‘Are you serious?’ ‘No. It’s a bloody ball. We go there to celebrate and talk compost’.” Once he auctioned himself off. “I said, ‘Who can I be a handbag for to go to the ball, in 25 words or less?’ And people wrote in,” he says. “It was a great night. It’s putting compost into a different package and mindset.” Costa Georgiadis is certainly a different package. We’ve met at the ABC, where he films Gardening Australia. He settles into a couch and you get the feeling he could tell stories for hours about his love of gardening, of the earth and of the need to look after our precious resources. But he’s no earnest evangelist. He’s got a mischievous way about him, and a cheeky, OK, earthy, sense of humour. It’s hard to deny that some of his quirky persona stems from the beard. Yes, that beard. He has called it his signature and it is quite a luxuriant specimen, almost a nature strip in its own right. “Someone asked me the other day if I’d shave it off, and I said, ‘It would have to be a million dollars’,” he says. He’s had the beard for 20 years. It started with big lamb chops and, as he says, he decided to do “the big link up”. “I hated shaving. I used to get rashes,” he says. “I love not having to shave. But people don’t always believe that. They go, ‘Are you hiding something?’ They read into it. I go, ‘Look, I hate to disappoint you but I love just waking up in the morning and going about my business. It was never there as any type of gag. That’s who I am’.” The son of Greek parents – his father was an electrician and his mother managed the home – young Costa and his two older sisters grew up in Sydney’s north Bondi speaking Greek and English. “(In Greek) I say way too many thanks and pleases – which is kind of nice,” he says. “When we were with my

grandparents and aunts and uncles and relatives we’d speak Greek.” The nascent environmentalist was appalled – and often literally sickened – by the sewage that was pumped into the water at Bondi. The sewage might have been out of sight but it certainly wasn’t out of mind or ears. “The ’80s and early ’90s, if you went swimming and surfing there too much you’d invariably come away with ear infections,” he says. “The beach was pretty ordinary in those days. “And like any engineering solution, they said, ‘Let’s put it out to sea’. Yes, it’s cleaned the beach up, but that (sewage) is a resource. That frustrates me; that we have this incredible resource that we should be turning into a fertiliser to put back onto our farmland and we’re just pumping it out there.” The Georgiadis family lived near the beach but young Costa’s heart was in the country. He had deep connections to the country New South Wales properties of his grandfather and godfather. It is from those men that Georgiadis learnt to love the land and what it produced. “I’d go and visit and he’d be in the backyard,” he says of his grandfather. “When you look back and think about your influences … it wasn’t like he was overtly conditioning me. He was just doing his thing, and as a role model and as a presence. We’d go over there and the first thing we’d do is run out into the garden to see where he was. “He had chickens, he had ducks, he had pigeons. All of them contributed to fertility, to the soil. The centre of his life was the soil. That as his mantra … he was a permaculturalist before the word existed, because he was providing a permanent supply of sustainable food for the family as an urban agriculturist.” Georgiadis was deeply saddened when his godfather sold his farm. “I took my first steps on my godfather’s farm (in the Bylong Valley near Mudgee, three hours north-west of

Sydney). That had an impact on me. I was devastated when he had to sell the farm. “It happened when I was 12 or 13, right at that age when I was starting to ride the horses, starting to go out on my own, starting to be able to explore the farm and everything it represented. I clearly remember the day we left for the last time. I was really upset. When I think about what I want to do and I want to get some land, that all goes right back.” At high school he didn’t know what he wanted to do. He remembers a friend at the University of NSW showing him the requirements to enter the landscape architecture degree. “I was sitting there on the library lawn and said, ‘What’s this about?’ He said, ‘I’m looking to transfer into this course’. And I read the list and it said geography, biology, design, planning, soils, hydrology, planting, horticulture. I thought, ‘That’s interesting’. “And that was it. You talk about those moments where you get into the flow. That’s where I dived into the river.” I relate to the thrill he talks about. I tell Georgiadis that my father was a keen and highly skilled vegetable gardener who grew corn (that reached way above an adult’s head), beans all over the back fence, strawberries in a disused sandpit and a whole lot of other vegetables that through his hard work and commitment shaved quit a bit off the grocery bill for six kids, not to mention giving us access to snapping-fresh veggies every night. I planted carrots and remember being amazed at the little green shoots that suggested juicy carrots below. I asked Georgiadis about the first thing he planted. It was strawberries at his grandfather’s house. “There’d be these strawberries growing out of the old feta tins. It was kind of that exploration. You’d lift up the leaves and there would be one of these little ones that would explode with taste. “The whole backyard was all grown. Packed with vegetation. The tins lining the little path … You’d walk down this path and lift a few leaves and bang! There


was a strawberry and (walk some more and) bang, there was a strawberry. Carrots would be a close second. They used to blow in the wind and they were so fine. It was something about the texture of those leaves, and you pulled it out …” Georgiadis spent three years doing a gardening program for SBS TV before leaving last year for the ABC. “I’ve got the highest respect and thanks for SBS,” he says. “They backed me.” He has previously expressed his indebtedness to SBS in Sydney’s The Beast magazine by saying, “I mean, who would have backed a talking scarecrow, garden gnome, half man, half hedge? None of the other stations would have ever gone near me.” Now, at the ABC, he can amplify his philosophy which is: “The world is a garden”. He believes we need to care for what we have, and not waste. “There’s no such thing as rubbish,” he says. “That by definition is wrong. For me one of the big tasks is to change the vocabulary (and if you do that) it changes the thinking. Rubbish should be called resource recovery.” He is proud when he doesn’t put a rubbish bin out for a week. “That’s the challenge. Recyclable, compost. Reduce, re-use, recycle, repair, re-badge. There’s all those. “If we really want to get into the DNA of the problem, it’s the accumulation and consumption that we’ve been forced into as this kind of belief that the economy is successful when we consume more. But that’s only mortgaging it to the next generation.”

T

hings are getting better though, I suggest. The environment is now a first-order priority in the community and there’s been good progress. “Oh, 100 per cent,” he says. “It’s building.” He is heartened that there are more farmers’ markets where people can buy vegetables that taste like vegetables. He first became aware of the importance of the compost heap through his grandfather. “I grew up around it with my grandfather,” he says. “He just composted everything. He probably didn’t even know the word compost. He was a sustainable community urban farmer. He was a market gardener before the war.” Georgiadis sees gardens as a living resource. He is passionate about his “verge” project whereby people are encouraged to plant out their nature strips and turn them into community gardens. He hopes to excite and inspire people to rip up the grass and plant little “satellite verges” everywhere. “We’re not just growing veggies,” he says. “We’re growing native local vegetation. We’ve incorporated native endemic vegetation to Bondi to create habitat (for fauna). “It’s mini-orchards, hedges. We’re slowly moving down the street.” So his whole street will be colonised by this planting? “Ultimately. That’s the plan.” The various councils are struggling to work out their stance on this interest in verges. “This is all happening in some places faster than they’re ready. So there’s no guidelines. Some have policy, others have policy in formation.” Georgiadis, 47, is single. “Probably been moving around too much for (a partner). I’ve got a lot of godkids, nieces, nephews.” He loves it that children in schools he speaks at respond so well to his message. “It powers me. I see not only the responsibility side as an adult but the joy and exuberance (of kids). Kids are talking about microbes, they’re talking about compost, they’re talking about permaculture, they’re talking about water and recycling and re-using. That’s the agenda.” \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au

BeauTy ScriBe \ DHAV NAIDU GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN

Y

ou cannot escape the smell of sulphur during a visit to Rotorua in New Zealand. My warm sulphurous-mud bath was by choice, though. The novelty piqued my curiosity. Maybe the taxman will accept it as beauty research. As I was rubbing the volcanic mud on my legs and upper body, I thought of facial masks. Don’t ask me why. Most facial masks are deep-cleansing and moisturising. They help increase blood circulation, tighten pores and impart a certain glow after use. The latter is one of the most important aspects of any masks – they slough off dead skin to reveal a brighter, younger skin. This means tighter, rejuvenated skin with a hint of glow. Regular cleansing will only remove surface dirt but using a mask once a week will draw out impurities from beneath the top layers of the skin. A mask also helps unclog pores so that your moisturisers and serums work more effectively. Besides facial masks being soothing or energising, the added benefit is the time spent going through the routine. The motion of applying, waiting and cleansing can be an effective stress reliever. Scrubs and masks are complementary, not substitutes. Using them together each week will help keep your skin in optimum condition. \ dnaidu@theweeklyreview.com.au

I also coach junior basketball for the Eltham Wildcats Basketball Club. Sporting highlight so far \ Representing Eltham Wildcats at the Australian Institue of Sport. I am playing Victorian championship basketball and A grade basketball. Sporting goal \ To play for Victoria in basketball.

Should male and female sports stars get equal pay? Of course. Girls can be just as good as boys in anything and boys can be just as good as girls Girls can in anything they do. It wouldn’t be fair if the be just boys got all the credit and girls got nothing or as good girls got the credit and the boys didn’t.

My secret vice is … spending money I should save. How I’d get kids off iPods and into sport \ Help them find a sport they love and are good at.

My main responsibilities as sports captain … are taking on the lead role in activities, making sure people understand and are having fun in what they are doing, show kids that it isn’t all about winning.

Title \ Sports captain

Australia’s best sportsperson \ Trent Cotchin from the Richmond Football Club. He is so great at what he does and is so inspirational. He came second in the Brownlow and it’s only his fourth season. He has also won the Jack Dyer Medal two years in a row.

My sporting hero \ Lauren Jackson, because she is such an amazing basketball player. She has been in so many amazing teams and represented Australia in the Olympics several times.

Would you represent Australia for nothing? Yes. It would be such an honour to represent your country in an Olympics or Commonwealth Games.

Would you rather be an Olympian or Prime Minister? I’d rather be an Olympian, as you are doing what you love and you don’t have to run the country, you get to represent your country because you are the best you can be, the best in your country and everyone loves it. Which sports star would make the best PM and why? (Champion cyclist) Cadel Evans because he never gave up and finally achieved his goal. How I’d spend $1 million to make the world a better place \ Donate money to cancer and hospitals so we can find more cures. With the leftover money I’d make sports centres where the less fortunate can go and play sport and find out what they are good at. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

ironic iconic (eddie morton)

’ve never been one to conform. While my pigtailed playmates danced with each other imagining they were ballerinas, I dealt with the ever-changing cryptic rules of the playground by dreaming of being a lady pirate. A cardboard tube retrieved from a bolt of fabric was my cutlass; clinging to the monkey bars with one arm, I’d lunge forward and hack through imaginary ropes and villains with the other. I was in love with Captain Flint, the fictional pirate in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, and longed to be shipwrecked and hunting for buried treasure. Even now, when I’m somewhere on a spit of land near an old port or riverbank, I sniff around for a barrel or wooden chest crammed with a stash of doubloons. From the moment I step aboard a ship I’m having an adventure. There’s no back and front, only the stern, the bow, portside and starboard. A ship is a living thing; it breathes, sweats and responds to weather with a unique soundscape. The moans of heavy ropes pulling against the tide or chains rattling along the anchor are the stuff of long absences and faraway lands. Ships fuel our imagination and can effect the most transformative internal journey without even leaving the shore. The Polly Woodside is about as spellbinding a ship as you could ever imagine. This Belfast-built, three-masted, iron-hulled barque was launched in 1885 and given the owner’s (William Woodside) wife’s nickname, “Polly”. In 17 voyages between 1885 and 1903, the Polly Woodside made several brutal passages around Cape Horn with an operating crew, including master and mate, generally numbering fewer than 20.

LOVES A JOLLY ROGER

This was a testament to the crew’s skill, and also to the ship’s beautiful lines and speed. In good conditions, and despite her size, she was capable of travelling at up to 14 knots (about 26 kilometres) an hour. Like all great performers, she’s had a lifetime of reinvention. In1904 she was sold to a New Zealand firm and renamed Rona, operating mainly between Australia and New Zealand. Competition from steamships forced the removal of her mast and yards and she was towed to Melbourne to be used as a coal lighter. In 1943, Rona was temporarily requisitioned by the Royal Australian Navy, towed to New Guinea waters and used as a refuelling barge for naval ships. After World War II she was towed back to Melbourne and for the next 20 years was again used for supplying coal to other ships. Most importantly, through all these years she safely delivered her crew back to shore every trip. Finally, in 1968, then owner Howard Smith Industries sold it to the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) for one cent, for restoration under her original name. After meticulous research and the affection and dedication of several volunteers, the Polly Woodside was restored between1972-78 – not to sail again, but to be a museum ship on which everyone could discover the technical aspects of a 19th-century sailing ship and the experience of life aboard for the crew. Get the barnacles off your bottom, jump aboard this beauty and, shiver me timbers, by the time you jump off you may be sunburnt and bearded. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com Follow Rachel on Twitter @boom_berger

Shipbuilding, containers and a home for those who roam

Duke & Orr’s Dock

The proximity of Duke & Orr’s Dock to the CBD is a reminder of the extensive shipbuilding and repair industry that once stretched for five kilometres along the south bank of the Yarra. Built in 1875, it’s incredible that the dock, gates, machinery and pump house are still basically intact. The dock is a grease monkey’s heaven – there’s a steam plant that includes the oldest known surviving installation of Victorian-built, under-fired tubular boilers in the metropolitan area and the only existing pair of Victorian-built tandem compound, vertical steam-pumping engines. Since 1978 it’s also the permanent home of the Polly Woodside. \

Port of Melbourne

The Port of Melbourne is Australia’s largest and busiest container port and one of the nation’s largest general cargo ports. But it wasn’t always so – an underwater bar at the entrance of the Yarra meant vessels drawing more than about three metres couldn’t enter and were forced to drop anchor in Hobson’s Bay, or at the Port Melbourne Pier. Passengers and freight then had to be shipped up the river in smaller vessels, which charged a fortune for the trip to the city. Over the years, channels have been widened and deepened and embankments raised to lessen the likelihood of floods. The history of the Port of Melbourne’s development is a testament to the development of the city itself. \

The Mission to Seafarers,

717 Flinders Street, Melbourne Seafarers work for long periods away from their homes and families, often in isolated and dangerous conditions. The Mission to Seafarers Victoria is part of a worldwide organisation started by the Reverend Dr John Ashley in 1835. He was so moved by the harrowing lives of seafarers after a visit to the island of Steep Holm in the Bristol Channel that for the next 15 years, until his health declined, he dedicated his life to their welfare. The Victorian Seaman’s Mission was founded in 1857 and has been providing a safe place for rest and relaxation, friendship and counsel in times of need ever since. \

six c se rets of

Great Ocean Road motoring \ Who am I? I am 80, I make $2.1 billion a year and I look shabbier by the day. ANDREW McUTCHEN suggests that those who said Donald Trump, should sit down …

i

t’s the Great Ocean Road, the fabled 243-kilometre stretch of tarmac between Torquay and Allansford that is consistently ranked among the best coastal drives on Earth. You’d be hard pressed to find a better person to talk about the story of the Great Ocean Road than lifetime Lorne resident, 90-year-old Doug Stirling. He was 10 years old when the second section of the Great Ocean Road, from Lorne to Apollo Bay, was opened on January 26, 1932. He remembers practically everything about the day, right down to the “flash of the scissors” as the ribbon was cut and the Union Jack, not the Australian flag, snapping in the wind. His eyes widen at the memory: “It was near the Pacific Grand Hotel. It was a hot day and being a little fella I was pushed towards the back of the pack, but I remember looking up through people’s legs and seeing Lieutenant-Governor Sir William Irvine cut the ribbon. They then cut the ribbon into eight-inch strips and sold them off. I believe the Lorne Historical Society has a piece.” Stirling loves the Great Ocean Road as much as anybody: “I was saying to my wife the other day that I’ve been travelling over this road for 75 years but I’m absolutely thrilled every time by the spectacle, not just of the road but of the glimpses you get of the beautiful blue ocean and the way it changes its mood every day.” But he’s concerned. The Colac-Otway Council says the Great Ocean Road needs a $50 million revamp and Stirling emphatically agrees. “It’s a bit of an embarrassment, I think, that one of our premier roads and one of the showcase roads in the world has got so uneven and rough and patchy in places. “Millions of tourists travel over it every year and it even has potholes in places. There must be some tongue in cheek when it gets publicised so much by Otway and Geelong Tourism. The surface of the road is in such a bad shape.” Stirling shares six secrets of the Great Ocean Road, some passed down within his family.

3 Great memories: Doug Stirling was just 10 when the second section of the Great Ocean Road was opened. (SupplieD)

1

ONE-WAY TRAFFIC “When the road was opened as far as Lorne, it was one-way traffic from Eastern View over the rugged hills coming into Lorne. It was very, very narrow so they had to have notices at each end saying the times that you could travel each way. They also had passing points on the road in case some clown came the opposite way when he shouldn’t have. If you bought a yearly subscription to the Great Ocean Road for £5 you could also have the naming rights to one of these passing points if you wished.”

2

SUICIDE GULLY “A lot of the 3000 returned soldiers who worked on the Great Ocean Road [which is dedicated to casualties of World War I and is the biggest war memorial in the world] had terrible shell-shock from the war. It was tough on them, because before pneumatic drills, they had to blast holes in the rock with explosives. At Mount Defiance, just beside the lookout there, is a gully that’s known by locals as ‘suicide gully’. That’s because one night a digger working on the road got a bit full of grog and he jumped. He’d had enough.”

WORLD WAR II “During World War II the authorities drilled several holes into the rock above the road just around from Mount Defiance and if there was an invasion on the west side of Lorne they were going to put explosives in them and blast the road down to block any entrance to the town. I believe you can still see the holes in the rock.”

SHALLOW GRAVES “Godfrey Creek [32 kilometres east of Apollo Bay] is named after a shipwreck in 1891 of the W. B. Godfrey. They had some salvage ships come in to try and get the timber off the ships and five people drowned. Two of the people were buried on the land nearby by my grandfather and uncle. When the survey gang came through, the grave was right where the road was going to go, so the tarmac went over the top of them; the bodies are still underneath the road. They’ve never been disturbed. The diggers who were working on the road were pretty incensed about this, so they took up the hat, passed it around and made enough money to build a false grave beside the road. It’s still there today.”

5

SLIMMER DAYS “The road is about 40 foot wide these days, but when it was built it was only about two and a half metres across and all it had for protection on the ocean side was a split-rail post. The traffic was a great deal less; in winter there’d only be one or two cars on it each day.”

IT RAN UNDER BUDGET! “The budget for the Great Ocean Road was £170,000 and they actually came in a couple of thousand under budget, so they built golf links just near the arches at Eastern View with the surplus money they had left over.” \ amcutchen@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.80greatoceanroad.com.au/ november 21, 2012 \ The weekly review 29

A special competition is offering the chance for some lucky people to be driven to the rally aboard an amazing vintage Ventura bus. Go to the website listed below for details and to fill out a form. Unfortunately, only 12 people will fit on the bus. According to Brown, the RACV received “hundreds and hundreds” of entries for the 2012 rally. “It’s a lucky draw really,” he says.

After that he follows all those Chitty Chitty Bang Bang-type vehicles to Mornington to take part in the celebrations.

\ RON HAMMERTON DRIVES INTO A CORNER WITH CONFIDENCE

P

orsche’s 911 celebrates its 50th birthday next year, showing nary a hint of grey hair or an unwanted gram of fat. This middle-aged icon has had more plastic surgery than the average Hollywood matron, being constantly reworked to keep her taut and terrific. It was in 1963 that Porsche – founded by Ferdinand Porsche, inventor of Germany’s peoples’ car, the Volkswagen Beetle – wheeled out the 911 two-door coupe as a replacement for its first offering under Ferdy’s own brand, the Beetle-derived Porsche 356. With its air-cooled, flat six-cylinder, boxer engine, the 911 was an instant hit around the world and has held a special place in the hearts of car fans ever since. Having said that, the precocious German sports car was not all that well behaved in its formative years. With a weighty iron engine, a transmission hanging over the rear wheels and precious little mass over the front, the car was prone to follow its own path, ignoring entreaties from the frustrated driver swinging on the steering wheel. We are delighted to report that modern 911s, even though still faithful to the rear-engine layout, have few such wrinkles, with a much more balanced chassis that points and steers with a class to match the reputation. An entirely new 911 – a rarity in the five decades of this car – arrived in Australia this year and is being progressively rolled out, model by model, starting with the standard rear-wheel-drive, normally aspirated (non-turbo) Carrera in coupe and soft-top cabriolet guises. Just as oils ain’t oils, 911s are not just 911s. They vary vastly in performance, equipment and price. Our test car was the most basic of all, the two-wheel-drive Carrera coupe with the 3.4-litre direct-injected boxer engine and seven-speed manual gearbox. This model might be the cheapest 911 in Australia, but most 911 buyers here aspire to something a little more enthusiastic. Although the engine punches out a handy 257kW of power – enough to propel the car from standstill to

100km/h in less than five seconds – it lacks the chutzpah of the bigger 3.8-litre engine of the 294kW 911 Carrera S, let alone the gut-wrenching wallop of the 911 Turbo that is in abeyance, awaiting an all-new model in a year or so. Then there is the manual gearbox that, with its heavy clutch pedal and equally heavy-duty shift, is a chore in the daily commute. No wonder more than 95 per cent of 911 buyers in Australia tick the box for the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, known in Porsche-speak as PDK. This cog-swapper has earned a reputation as the world’s best and we wholeheartedly endorse the sentiment. It transforms the 911 driving experience, blatting through the gears with such aplomb that even race drivers who experience it admit they could not be bothered with the manual shift. Faster in every respect than the manual model, the PKD-equipped Porsche 911 is one of motoring’s great experiences. Down changes elicit a throaty blip of the throttle, setting up the car for a corner in what always seems the perfect gear. It comes at a price, though, costing a whopping $5950 premium over the manual, although well-heeled Porsche buyers seem to have few qualms. The 911’s feedback to the driver at these high-stress times is better than almost any other high-performance car on the market, letting them know how far they have pushed the envelope. It builds confidence and comfort. The electric-assisted power steering is one of the best examples of this new-age technology, delivering a feeling of security along with fuel economy gains, thanks to the absence of an energy sapping steering pump. The brochure says the 911 Carrera has four seats, although the rear seats are strictly part-timers, with squeezy knee room and claustrophobic packaging. Up front, the deeply sculpted sports seats are designed to handle the G forces generated in the corners by this grippy car. Driving with backside close to the floor and legs stretched well out in front, the driver grips a chunky sports steering wheel in

front of a dashboard that harks back to earlier models. The 911 is as much about tradition as speed. The big tachometer is still front and centre, with the smaller analogue speedo shoved off to the left, contrary to the usual family car layout. However, in a nod to speed cameras, a digital speedo rides shotgun within the tacho. The 911 still has most of the traditional knobs and switches to run the ancillaries, but a modern LCD screen sits in the middle of the console to deliver sat-nav and audio selection. But who needs music when we have an exhaust note enhancement button? Yes, with the touch of one finger, the operator can direct an extra dose of the aural delight from the engine into the cabin. This is done acoustically, not electronically, meaning the engine note is literally piped into the cockpit for your listening pleasure. At a tick over $250,000 on the road, is it value for money? Probably not and neither is the heist perpetrated in the name of options and accessories but a Porsche is a Porsche – a childhood dream lived out by drivers who have made it materially in life. \ ron.hammerton@live.com.au

P

aying a premium for a European brand may make sense to some people but I just can’t see it. Some time ago I spent a week in a pretty basic hatch from a prestige European brand that cost about $37k and I was, well, underwhelmed. Now I’ve just handed back a Hyundai i30 with everything that opens and shuts that cost $1000 less and I can’t for the life of me figure why anyone would take the European offering. Of course it’s a matter of status. A Hyundai badge has none whatsoever. But when you’re getting more room (especially in the back seat), navigation, leather, a proximity key, seat heaters, a full-length sunroof, pretty good audio and a full size spare tyre on a matching alloy wheel, not to mention a beautifully flexible little diesel motor that stretches out a litre of fuel very nicely, you have to take stock. Can status be worth what it costs? You’ve got to think there are plenty of i30 Premium owners with smiles on their faces while those who bought into the expensive European brands must tire of justifying their purchase to their family, their friends and indeed themselves. The Hyundai drives comfortably, with good noise levels, and while the ride does tend to a firmness that isn’t out of the ordinary for cars of this size, the handling is quite acceptable. The steering lacks a bit of feel, which means you can pull on a bit too much lock around fast corners, but there aren’t any nasty surprises here.

Visibility is good when you’re backing up and there’s a reversing camera calibrated for parking distances. The gallant little diesel could never be described as fast but it sure is enthusiastic, to the point where it feels quick as it winds through the gears rapidly to keep the turbocharger bubbling. And that gearbox works nicely. It’s calibrated for economy but the motor has enough torque to keep grumbling at bay when there’s a quick demand for power. The

calibration changes if you press the ‘‘active eco’’ button but I didn’t, figuring the economy I was getting without it was just fine, thanks. For anyone who is happy with a small car but wants the works (think cashed-up retirees, empty nesters and those who couldn’t pick a Rolex from a Swatch) this is a terrific little car, especially for private buyers using their own money. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.hyundai.com.au

BEST OF OLD AND NEW

\ 1 OXFORD COURT, IVANHOE, 3079

A

t a recent open day, this writer overheard a buyer asking an agent specifically for something old on the outside but new inside. It was tempting to interrupt the conversation and direct the buyer to No. 1 Oxford Court. This property is just what she and surely plenty of other buyers are looking for. Like its neighbours in Ivanhoe’s Beaumont Estate, the property hails from the interwar period and has its roots firmly planted in the English domestic revival style. Once inside, however, this is essentially a new house. Entering via the arched portico is a bit like stepping straight from the 1930s to the present. Until two years ago the property was seriously run down and ripe for demolition. But, perhaps with this sort of buyer in mind, the vendors decided it needed a second chance. They retained the period façade, with its trio of gables and arched portico, but built a new house behind. The original bones make up part of the front lounge and main bedrooms, but you wouldn’t know. Only the brick fireplace in the lounge, which has been painted white, provides a clue about the property’s vintage once inside. By preserving the facade, the vendors have also helped to retain the old-world character of the streetscape. This court, which is tucked away on the Ivanhoe village end of A.V. Jennings’ famous first estate, is lined purely in interwar houses, mostly red or oatmeal clinker brick. It was crucial for this house, which sits in the most prominent position at the end of the court, to set the tone. That’s why the vendors not only retained the façade but mimicked it on the rest of the exterior, using a clinker trim, grey render and terracotta tiles from front to back. The vintage shell is not, however, at odds with its contemporary contents. The lack of decorative ceilings, stained-glass windows or weathered Baltic pine floorboards does not leave the interiors wanting. They are quite simply clean, crisp and comfortable, just as a new house should be. The walls are white, the floors are new polished timber and the high ceilings are without cornices.

The size of the house is also a clear departure from the past. It must be at least double the size of its former self. The floor plan has been cleverly designed to stretch across the unusual 810-square metre block, which is widest just beyond the double garage and narrow at the end. It includes an assortment of living spaces that flow freely into each other. When entertaining, you can choose from the front lounge and dining rooms or the stylish living room lined in windows with elegant sheer drapes. For everyday occasions, family and friends can come together in the expansive living hub, which opens to the central courtyard. A meals area extends off the kitchen, which has a 900mm Smeg oven, CaesarStone benches, glass splashback and island bench with wine storage. From the family area you can truly appreciate the size of this house. From the couch you can look back to the front door, which seems miles away, or across the courtyard to the living room. The accommodation has been designed around the needs of modern families. Rather than cluster the bedrooms in one zone, as would occur back in the day, the main bedroom is zoned well away from the three kids’ bedrooms at the back. They share a central bathroom with freestanding bath and separate toilet, and two bedrooms lead directly to the back lawn. This patch of green is bound by high rendered walls and connects to the rest to the low-maintenance grounds via a garden path. There is a study by the double garage that could easily become a fifth bedroom for guests. But nowhere quite captures the sense of old meets new like the main bedroom. It has a contemporary en suite with twin vanities concealed behind a large dressing room, yet the window fills the space with views of an intact interwar streetscape – the sort of view that makes this patch of Ivanhoe such a desirable place to live. \

ELTHAM This architect-designed house has a modest street presence but on inspection reveals an intriguing design. The steep block of more than 900 square metres has been well exploited by a floor plan that offers several living areas, zoned bedrooms and three different outdoor entertainment areas. This is all achieved over five levels that subtly graduate up the hill. The ground-floor entry reveals a large rumpus room with bathroom and internal entry from the double garage and workshop. A perfect party set up. Upstairs, two separate balconies surround a formal dining room and lounge. With exposed-brick walls and high vaulted timber-lined ceilings, they are warm and spacious living areas with treetop views. A central tiled kitchen and meals area leads to the main bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The top level is a self-contained kids’ retreat with a living area, three bedrooms and a main bathroom. With its own north-facing deck and outdoor lawn, this is the most elevated part of the block and, without feeling like you’ve climbed a mountain, you’re enjoying a private hilltop position. Inside and out, the separate levels evolve in a comfortable way. Located in the heart of Woodridge Estate, this is an Eltham address that is central to shops, train station and schools. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

With several outdoor entertainment areas, extensive parking, stables, gated paddocks, electronic gates and sweeping driveway to the almost two-hectare block, the possibilities for this property are endless. It could be a family estate, a horse camp or corporate retreat. The residence was built in the early 1960s. A renovation is showing its age and interiors could be updated but the actual construction is still elegant and inviting. The ground floor houses two separate living areas. The large family and dining area has an open fireplace and a north-facing balcony. In this elevated position and surrounded by trees, it has a great vista and an air of relaxed comfort. The lower-ground floor has a main bedroom with en suite and built-in wardrobes attached to a large rumpus room with wet bar and indoor spa. A wall of windows leads to the outdoor pool, extending the substantial entertainment zone. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

If you’ve been looking for somewhere to move straight in to without getting your hands dirty, this updated property might suit. The kitchen and en suite have been recently renovated and offer modern finishes. A fresh coat of paint has instantly refreshed the interior and the spotted-gum timber floor is also new. The carpeted formal living and dining area at the entrance looks out to the court, where kids often play after school. The open-plan and informal family zone is flooded with natural light. The kitchen, which has CaesarStone benchtops and stainless-steel appliances, overlooks the meals area and casual lounge that has a taupe-coloured feature wall and opens to the covered outdoor entertainment area. The main bedroom is off the hallway and has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with frameless glass shower. Three more bedrooms share a separate toilet and a bathroom that has a bathtub. Other benefits include plantation shutters and a shed with power. \ BIANCA VILLArOsA

Greta Gables cleverly blends a country feel with modern fixtures. Period details haven’t been lost in the update – hand-painted ceiling roses, detailed cornices and shades such as pale green, cream and off-white dominate the colour scheme. The current owners have constantly maintained the residence after they extended eight years ago. The formal lounge, which features an ornate fireplace, was part of the original house before it was renovated. A hall with polished floors leads to the nucleus of the house. The kitchen, with stainless-steel appliances, overlooks the meals area and is near a casual lounge. It opens to the undercover deck, sandpit and low-maintenance backyard. The main bedroom is near the kitchen and has an en suite with spa bath and walk-in wardrobe. Two other bedrooms are at the front of the house and share a bathroom. One bedroom has been converted into a study. A fourth bedroom, a bathroom and a rumpus/ retreat area are upstairs. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA

It’s easy to see why the current owners haven’t budged from this elevated family house for more than 30 years. Several living and entertainment areas and a flexible floor plan, including a separate self-contained unit, has accommodated the whole family. Over the years, exposed-brick walls and stained-glass windows have been retained in the various cosmetic revamps. Easy-care gardens, a pool and a balcony with treetop views over the surrounding suburbs have provided plenty of spaces to relax outdoors. The balcony can be reached from the formal living/dining room, which features a bar. It’s connected to the family area with polished floorboards. The nearby kitchen has granite benchtops. The main bedroom is near the study and has built-in wardrobes and an en suite. Two other bedrooms share a bathroom and separate toilet. The self-contained unit can be reached from the pool area and has a kitchen, meals space, lounge with timber floors, bedroom and bathroom. \ BIANCA VILLAROSA
