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

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

Sarah Marinos meets soccer supremo Ange Postecoglou

8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016

O

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

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

A Head Of The Game

A

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


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

A

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

FROM THE ASHES

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

S

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

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

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

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

Look out for …

(SCOTT MCNAUGHTON)

Growing up next door to the Albert Park grand prix circuit gave Dylan Young quite some drive. Now racing against the likes of Michael Schumacher’s son Mick in formula three, the 27-year-old from Hawthorn is revved to move up the grid.

Challenge Formula 2000 Championship, it made people take notice. After constantly battling budget issues that have never been a problem for the European frontrunners, Dylan showed he could mix it with the world’s best given proper support.

can go into regional wines. Australian winemakers are making the most of this freedom, producing amazing wines from grape combinations that might be considered, well, unusual. A blend of gewurtztraminer, riesling, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay? Or orange bitters blended in a sparkling – from Chandon, no less? Boundaries are being pushed and the results are tremendous. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

BARGAIN BUY

Rob Dolan four + one 2014 (Yarra Valley) $27.50; 13%

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

Chandon S NV (Victoria) $29; 12.8%

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

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

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

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

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

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

ighting the good fight was never this sweet. Or this much fun. The cheekily named Hot Brown Honey comes storming in from the fringes this week and Australian theatre might never look the same again. The group’s act is a furious mix of everything from cabaret to hip hop, designed to show Australian audiences exactly what we’ve been missing. MC Kim “Busty Beatz” Bowers says their success has proved there’s an appetite for adventurous and diverse theatre. “There was a statistical thing done in Australia that showed if you put a woman of colour on a poster, people won’t go to your show,” Kim says. “We just went, this is how we look, this our show, here we are.

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

We settled in to taste the Estate Chardonnay 2014 and the McCutcheon Pinot Noir 2013. Outstanding. The winery restaurant’s casual country-house setting belies its serious ambition as a fine diner in the country (with an Age Good Food Guide hat). You will be guided to wines matching the food or mood. We tried the Tasmanian rabbit ballotine, the roasted breast of Great Ocean Road duck, and finished with slow-roasted blueberries and a blueberry mousse with lemon aspen ice cream and marscapone snow. Large wow factor. ●

We dropped in on the MAIN RIDGE DAIRY, a secluded haven producing handcrafted goat cheeses (delicious and we’re told excellent for cholesterol management). It’s a great place to bring youngsters to see the cute goats and gamboling kids (they are gamboling responsibly). ● 295 Main Creek Road ● mainridgedairy.com.au Over in Flinders (via Point Leo to check the surf), we visited GEORGIE BASS, a cafe and cooking school with good food and a great vibe. ● 30 Cook Street ● georgiebass.com.au Meanwhile, over in nearby Dromana, CRITTENDEN ESTATE is always a great option for wine tastings. ● 25 Harrison’s Road, Dromana ● crittendenwines.com.au

22 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016

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

(ISTOCK)

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

A

swatch of fabric spied through the window of an antique shop in Rouen, France, on one of Catriona Rowntree’s many journeys was the starting point for her lovely conservatory. “There it was, my dream fabric, and I kind of matched everything from there,” says the much-loved presenter of the Nine Network’s Getaway program, plumping a cushion covered in a Pierre Frey Aloha print. The result is a room that is at once lush and light, and the undisputed centrepiece of the home Catriona shares with farmer husband James Pettit and their “two rambunctious sons” Andrew, 7, and five-year-old Charles. The 1870s bluestone house – the former manager’s cottage of a still thriving sheep and grain farm on the western plains outside Geelong – was somewhat dilapidated when the then-newlyweds took it on. “When you live in a property like this you are custodians, and we wanted to revel in the history of it, but apart from that we disagreed on just about everything,” Catriona laughs. “The result is a combination of my husband and me trying to come together with the pretty meeting the practical.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

I kept killing everything and my mother-in-law gave me one of Paul Bangay’s books and said, ‘H He lives nearby, if he can grow it so can you’. Paul and I are best of friends now, so that also helps. This is my favourite rose, the Double Delight, which came from my friend Ruth’s garden. It has the most amazing perfume.

I was forever looking for fabric the colour of grass because, for me, living here is about appreciating the outdoors. Adelaide Bragg (of Adelaide Bragg & Associates) sourced this Pierre Frey Shanghai fabric (a blend of cotton, linen, viscose and silk). The colour is Prairie. It’s perfect and won’t show Vegemite.

My father inherited this from his uncle, who drove it straight out of the showroom in 1965. When my father (Stephen) was very sick with cancer, we did it up as a project. He did not live to see the finished result, but every time I’m in that car I feel like I am getting a big hug from my dad.

It began with a couple of pieces, but then I went to an auction at Rene Rivkin’s home and a friend said, “Why don’t you put a bid on all the Lalique?”, and I accidentally got everything. Now I love to source pieces from auctions. I like the thrill of the chase.

These chooks are the ultimate example of the pretty meeting the practical. They lay the most beautiful palest blue eggs that are brilliant for baking. My dear friend Kate, my country woman role model, gave me my first chooks when my son was born.

I don’t have a credit card, so I bought as many tiles as my last per diem (daily travel allowance) would allow and that I could physically put into the overhead locker.

MONTMORENCY \ 23 KELVIN AVENUE

T

he bends and the dips of the green, framing streetscape make this lovely patch of Greensborough most appealing. There are some pretty impressive spreads out this way too – large contemporary houses with expansive floorplans catering to modern family living. The style here in Banfield Terrace fits nicely into the green garden-type aesthetic; it’s certainly not rustic, but it is no bombastic big-noter either. There’s an impressive confidence here; an assured look from the superb picture windows to the effortless flow of the open floorplan. The entry opens to a lovely wide foyer with honey-toned hardwoods flowing towards the open plan rear section. First though, there’s an attractive formal living room that offers garden views and access via some of that excellent large glazing that is a winning theme throughout. A cosy fireplace brings the warmth and charm. Across the way a short passage leads to the large garage and workshop. Although this house has a breezy open feel, there are plenty of clever delineating features that clearly zone one space from another. Split-levels always provide excellent depth to a floor plan and in this house they also serve to separate and define. From the entry hallway beyond the front living room, you step up into the glossy, capacious rear open plan. This is a large, light-filled open area, but again simple, clever touches make all the difference. The bulkhead over the kitchen gives that area shape, and the smooth stone waterfall island bench, glass splashback and acres of preparation space bring the classy finish. Special mention to the excellent side stacker window, so you can hand out the G & Ts to your friends on the terrace – every home should have one. The ceiling then rises and slants across the dining room and over the family room. There’s a single step up here and it says a lot – the family space is the highest point, a stage or pedestal, where the mob communes and plays. These elements bring energy and personality – a stamp of difference that serves to set the home a little above the pack. Another covered and paved area sits just beyond the glass wall of the family room and winds its way around to an appealing garden. Here you get a good stretch of grassy terrace and enough room up in the terraced section of the garden for a play area and a cubby. Back inside and a slip hallway open on either end behind the living room provides privacy for three excellent bedrooms, all with good storage and study space. There’s a super smooth stone bathroom servicing these bedrooms before you head down to the large laundry with outside access. The cherry, quite literally on top here, comes courtesy of the main suite that tracks the roofline of the front downstairs section of the house. It’s very fine up here with a retreat space boasting its own balcony with park and distant ranges views, as well as an impressive study area across the way. The main bedroom is a beauty with a divine stretch of glass to take in the green streets beyond. You finish off here with a very generous walk in wardrobe and opulent en suite. ● LOU SWEENEY property@domain.com.au

They say it’s a classic of its type, a Montmorency masterpiece. Well, that might be nudging the needle a little into the red, but there’s plenty to like about this appealing house. Kelvin Avenue, on the north side of Montmorency, is one of the best streets in the suburb. From here you can stroll to parks and schools. We love these houses for their neat attention to detail. There’s an excellent composition to them, a coherent feel. This one has a large living room that flows back to include a study area before the kitchen and brilliant dining space. The three bedrooms all have storage and the main’s en suite has been updated in the past few years, as has the central bathroom. ● LOU SWEENEY

WE LOV E IT

Heidelberg is a suburb of many parts – relentlessly urban here, resolutely green there but always with something to interest property punters. Take 58 Brown Street for example. What a cracker of a place, from its expansive accommodation options to its singularly wonderful garden. The old house has been renovated and extended and provides an entry of grand proportions as well as six bedrooms and ample room to stretch out in the sitting and living rooms both upstairs and down. The interiors are terrific but it’s the garden and its brilliant, elevated walkway and deck that really sets this place apart. When you tire of the outdoors, there’s an upstairs cinema room. ● LOU SWEENEY

Sometimes at the first flush of the new housing estate, thing can seem pretty dour and uninspiring. The Uni Hill precinct in Bundoora is hitting its straps just about now. There is a build on most of the blocks, so there’s less of that wasteland vibe and more of that community feel. Those in the know say this part of town has seen quite a growth in 2016 and it might have something to do with the superb amenity out this way. Not only do you get La Trobe University on your

doorstep, there’s the outlet shops and the verdant stretch of the Plenty Gorge Parklands nearby. It’s where we find 60 Clovemont Way, right on the green. Beyond the rather grand entrance and ranging across to the left side, there’s a front-facing study, and a little further afield, the generous lounge and dining  room. This more formal section of the house gives way on to the glossy spaces of the kitchen, meals and family area. The chic, white stone kitchen is handsomely

anchored by ample timber cabinetry and leads across to the excellent spaces of cinema and rumpus room behind. The laundry, a walk-in pantry with sink, butler’s pantry, cloak room, powder room and a generous storeroom complete the ground floor amenity. Upstairs, the house is positively palatial. All four bedrooms have en suites. The main has a huge walk in wardrobe, spa and covered balcony to take in the air and scenery. A living area opens to the balcony at the front of the house ● LOU SWEENEY

ELTHAM \ 6 JALNA COURT Springtime in Eltham. Really, someone should have made a movie. The birds are chirping, the foliage is green and gorgeous and out here in the canopy of calm, all is right with the world. It truly is one of those places where, once you jag off the main drag you can feel the serenity settle. Ah, the serenity. Then you come to Jalna Court and sigh. It helps too that the superb grounds frame the property in verdant loveliness. You get a pretty, formal garden of camellias and bird calls near the front of the house; a brilliant grassy terrace beyond the pool out the back; plenty of towering wonders surrounding the tennis court; and even a gorgeous dry creek bed that acts as a catchment for the overflow of the rainwater tanks. Before exploring the ground floor take the stair to level one where you’ll find two excellent bedrooms serviced by a bright bathroom and split by a terrific retreat. Back downstairs, bank right and enjoy the languid dimensions of the formal dining room and adjacent lounge. Heading into the north wing of the house you pass the study; further northward you get a sweet bedroom with lovely views, a bathroom opposite and a capacious rumpus room. Let’s get back to the entrance and go left to the brilliant arc of kitchen, its handsome timber cabinetry following the bend of the wall to provide acres of storage, while the stone benchtops bring the cool style. In front, a large meals area / family room spreads out to best experience the pool and garden views via banks of north-facing glass. But let’s leave you with the main bedroom – the dimensions, the views, and an en suite to make you weep.
