Libraries. Places to find answers to puzzling questions. But here’s a situation: North Fitzroy Library is just that, not Fitzroy North Library as some – namely official channels such as the post office – say it should be. Tomek Zagala moved to the suburb last month and says when he visited the library and asked about the name he was told the sign and the building were installed as a temporary fix that became permanent. The confusion will end when the library moves to a proposed new hub with an Aboriginal name, to be built at the empty block at 182-185 St Georges Road.

Former Fitzrovian Julian Assange may be cooped up in London’s Ecuadorian Embassy, but his story Underground, which screened on TV last year, is on at Cinema Nova this week. Assange will be happy to know his presence will be felt in Fitzroy, even if he can’t get there.

Instead of putting this shining monstrosity of a toilet at the entrance of the Australian Native Garden at Royal Park it could have been placed around the corner and still have provided the necessary convenience (‘‘Protesters discover toilet humour’’, MTW, February 27). The old and historic peppercorn trees have been damaged, garden bed gone and the entrance made ugly. There were many letters and approaches made to the Melbourne City Council pointing out the problems with this position, but they took no notice. Fiona Bell / via website

Support needed Observing media coverage about asylum seekers in the community recently, I haven’t been sure whether to laugh or cry. Following a serious but isolated incident, now rightly in the hands of police and the courts, all asylum seekers living in the community were portrayed as potentially threatening and dangerous. Then, in a heartbeat, the focus shifted to asylum seekers as victims of exploitation, forced to live in substandard conditions. The common

thread seems to be that asylum seekers should not reside in the community. The reality is, asylum seekers are themselves, one of the most vulnerable groups in society. And with all that is at stake, they are surely more motivated than virtually anyone else to be law abiding and to want to live in peace. Indeed it was reported last week, asylum seekers are 45 times less likely to offend than the average person in the community. Living in the community is the most humane, cost effective and common sense arrangement for the vast majority of asylum seekers while they await the outcome of their claims for protection. It protects people’s health and wellbeing during a time of great uncertainty. But, as many of us working with asylum seekers have been saying both publicly and privately for some time, if you don’t have work rights and only have access to very basic supports to meet your everyday needs, what are the options?

Calls to end ‘porn-driven’ surgery for girls BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

AN INCREASE in girls requesting genital cosmetic surgery has prompted calls to strike the procedure from the Medicare rebate list and bring in new laws to stop surgery regarded as unnecessary. The Royal Children’s Hospital’s head of gynaecology, Sonia Grover, said there had been a significant rise in the number of girls requesting genital reconstructive surgery. Many sought the procedure because they ‘‘think their genitalia look abnormal’’. ‘‘Ten years ago there was around one case presenting every year or two

... with concerns regarding appearance or requesting labiaplasty,’’ Dr Grover said . ‘‘In the last few years, a case has presented every two to three months.’’ Dr Grover said most patients elected not to proceed with surgery as a result of information and education provided by staff. She said fewer than five children had undergone labiaplasties or vulvoplasties at the hospital in the past 12 years. Each of them had experienced genuine symptoms to warrant the procedure, which reduces the size of female genitalia, she said. In a recent interview on SBS television, Dr Grover said: ‘‘A substantial number of the young women, teen-

agers, are actually coming because their mothers think their genitalia look abnormal and are requesting labiaplasties." The number of labiaplasties and vulvoplasties claimed on Medicare has more than doubled in Victoria over the past 10 years – from 177 in 2002 to 430 last year. Of those patients, 24 were aged five to 14 and 593 were aged 15 to 24. But the vice-president of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Ajay Rane, said the true number of children undergoing the procedure could be three times higher. Professor Rane is calling for reform

that would require children to see at least two specialists and a psychologist, and record photographic evidence before undergoing the procedure. He said it was driven by a ‘‘culture of pornography’’. ‘‘They want to conform to what they believe is the normal look,’’ he said. Unnecessary surgery could put children at risk of nerve damage, scarring and narrowing, Professor Rane said. The head of the state’s Commission for Children and Young People, Bernie Geary, said he supported tightening of laws and mandatory psychosocial assessments for children. The procedure should be removed

The Cycle Atlas Project, to be launched this week, is a free, interactive guide that gives detailed information about cycling routes, including location, distance, estimated time and difficulty. Each route is set out on an easy-to-read web page with photos, videos and a Google-maps graphic plotting lookouts, toilets and cafes. The public is invited to submit routes, maps and photos.

from the Medicare Benefits Schedule, he said. Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons spokesman Dr Paul Belt said the increasingly popular procedure could only be claimed on Medicare ‘‘where medically indicated’’. ‘‘To be eligible for a rebate it can’t be done for cosmetic reasons but only for systematic functional problems,’’ he said. However he conceded the test was ‘‘a grey area’’ and open to interpretation. The Health Department is reviewing the Medicare rebate for labiaplasty and vulvoplasty, with a decision expected early next year.

All aboard for Doncaster link COLLINGWOOD station would become a hub for commuters travelling to Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, if a rail proposal recommended by an independent study group is backed by the state government. The rail link, which would run from Collingwood station to the Doncaster Park & Ride, was last week nominated as the best of three proposed route options by the Doncaster Rail Study group. Most of the line would run along the middle of the Eastern Freeway. It would be above ground for 10 kilometres and run through underground tunnels for two kilometres. It would have three stations – at the Doncaster Park & Ride, near Bulleen Road and near the Chandler Highway. The group is seeking feedback via doncasterrailstudy.uservoice.com – Kristian Silva

INBRIEF Witnesses sought Police are seeking witnesses to an attempted robbery of a service station in Northcote on March 6. Police say a man armed with a golf club entered the High Street station, near the corner of Clarke Street, just before 2pm. He then demanded cash from the staff member, who locked themselves in the staff area. The offender then started smashing the counter and display, before fleeing the scene emptyhanded. The offender is described as being southern European, about 175cm tall with a medium build and brown hair. He was wearing a fluorescent reflective vest, aviator sunglasses, blue T-shirt, blue jeans, thongs and a hat. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppers.com.au.

Police are appealing for witnesses to a Carlton stabbing on March 9. Police have been told three men were involved in an altercation with a larger group near the Leicester and Queensberry street intersection about 4.30am. The larger group left the area, but two men returned a short time later, according to police. An 18-year-old man was stabbed in the back and taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with lifethreatening injuries. Police want to speak to anyone who witnessed the assault and to the driver of a green sedan seen in the area at the time.

The campaign supports a Doncaster rail line as a sustainable, cost-effective transport solution.

BANK of Melbourne customers have been defrauded of at least $12,000 after their card details were cloned by a sophisticated skimming device attached to a Fairfield ATM. Six people have come forward to report unauthorised transactions, made at ATMs in Ocean Grove and Mexico on February 8 and 9. Police believe a skimming device was attached to a stand-alone ATM at the front of a newsagency on Station Street between January 20 and February 10. The apparatus has not yet been recovered but police said such devices typically included a camera fitted above the keypad and a separate mechanism that copied the card’s magnetic strip. ‘‘We don’t know at this stage whether it had some sort of transmitter or if it downloaded the information to a hard drive but we believe they’re getting these details and cloning the cards,’’ Detective Senior Con-

stable Paul Haining said. ‘‘The device has been put on and taken off a number of times because it’s quite a long period for a device to be on a machine and go unnoticed.’’ Detectives from Darebin Crime Investigation Unit are appealing for public assistance and have released an image of a man seen loitering near the Fairfield ATM. Police last week said $12,000 had so far been identified as stolen from customers. The money was with-

A Bank of Melbourne spokeswoman said the bank was in the process of refunding affected customers. ‘‘Where we confirm a customer has a fraud on their account we will refund those funds,’’ she said. ‘‘We have also upgraded the ATM with new anti-skimming security technology.’’ Police are warning people to cover their PIN and to check ATM security before making a withdrawal. ‘‘The external plastic on the ATM shouldn’t move and it’s always a good idea to wiggle the card to ensure the slot has nothing parked over the top of it,’’ Detective Senior Constable Haining said.

Cubbies help kids in need Mahdi ‘‘Moo’’, 4, (pictured with graduate architect Aaron Neighbour), gave the final sign-off for the cubby house she helped design ahead of its grand unveiling at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show this week. Collingwood firm Gunn Dyring Architecture and Urban Design enlisted the kindergarten student to help create the cubby to raise money for homeless children. Dubbed ‘‘Your Name Here’’, the cubby house features a mezzanine floor, a fireplace and even a power outlet and is one of five to be auctioned for charity. Proceeds go to non-profit Kids Under Cover, which provides shelter for children at risk of homelessness. The cubby houses will be displayed at the Carlton Gardens and Royal Exhibition Building from March 20 to 24. They will be auctioned at 3pm on March 24.

BY ALANA SCHETZER THREE inner-north community radio stations face an uncertain future due to a federal government cash shortfall that threatens their digital services. Triple R, PBS and 3CR are among 37 radio stations across Australia that may have to pull the plug on digital streaming after the government cut $1.4 million from funding for community digital radio services in the 2012-13 budget. The money had been earmarked to build nationwide infrastructure to allow digital broadcasting. But funding has been cut by 38 per cent from $3.7 million to $2.3 million, which means community stations can no longer maintain, let alone expand their current digital services. The stations are stretching existing funding to the end of the financial year

and the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia has called on the government to restore funding at the next budget, to be handed down in May. The CBAA has launched the ‘‘Commit to Community Radio’’ campaign, which has generated support from more than 30,000 listeners and the music industry. Triple R station manager Dave Houchin said closing the station’s digital channel would be devastating. ‘‘Digital radio is the future of broadcasting. If the government don’t see the community sector as valuable enough ... what chances do we have getting back on when analogue is switched off?’’ he said. There has been no announcement about switching off the analogue radio broadcasting system, however whispers in the industry are that 2020 could be the year.

Extra question at federal poll BY ALANA SCHETZER AUSTRALIANS might face a referendum on September 14 on whether local government should be recognised in the constitution. A federal parliamentary committee recommended the referendum be held on the same day as the federal election, but the vote could fail before it even begins as federal Local Government Minister Simon Crean tries to shore up the necessary support from the state governments. The Victorian government has already voiced its opposition to the constitutional recognition. Mr Crean said the referendum’s success would depend on the state governments’ support. He will spend the next five weeks in discussion with premiers. ‘‘History shows that we need the bulk of the states on board as well as

bipartisanship at a federal level or it will fail,’’ Mr Crean said. The Municipal Association of Victoria has backed the vote, saying it was crucial to guarantee direct federal funding for local government. ‘‘Constitutional recognition is an essential next step to protect important funding for local projects,’’ association president Bill McArthur said. ‘‘[It provides] councils with the certainty that direct federal funding for essential community infrastructure can continue without claims of constitutional invalidity.’’ The push for the referendum has come off the back of two High Court decisions that challenged the power of the Commonwealth to directly fund local governments. Constitutional referendums are notoriously hard to pass, requiring a yes from the majority of voters in a majority of states.

Back in the saddle

Heli Simpson goes from medicine to comedy. By Bridget Fitzgerald

N

orthcote-based Heli Simpson dabbled in acting and singing in her youth before studying to become a doctor. But in 2013 she will wear a new hat – sketch comedian. The 25-year-old is one-fifth of comedy troupe Boss Octopus, which performs at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival. “[Boss Octopus] doesn’t mean anything at all, but hey, what does Monty Python really mean?” she says. Simpson and Boss Octopus members – Yianni Efstathiadis, Nathan Murfey, Will Burrage and Clifford Myers – met at Melbourne University a few years ago. The five classmates were involved in the Melbourne University Med Medleys Revue – an annual comedy revue performed by medical students. Simpson says Boss Octopus draws inspiration from comedy groups such as Fast Forward and Cambridge Footlights, which includes famous alumni such as Emma

Thompson, Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. Not only are they similar in style, says Simpson, but they also turn their university sketch acts into professional stage shows. “Although the cast of the med revue is quite big – about 20 people – just a few of us thought we’d try and turn it into something,” she says. “We’re keen on the style because it was such a popular style years ago but the comedy festival has a lot of stand-up and we’re proud to do something different.” Simpson is no stranger to performing. She has had a career as a TV actor, appearing in Blue Heelers, Stingers and Fergus McPhail. But her most well-known role was in the ABC program The Saddle Club in which she played Veronica DiAngelo, the spoilt, horseriding daughter of a millionaire. “People still recognise me as Veronica,” she says. But at 16 Simpson decided to return to school full-time. “I committed myself to education,” she says. “I continued with my acting in an amateur way.”

March 20, 2013

Simpson graduated from medicine in 2011, works at the Mercy Hospital for Women and wants to pursue a career in obstetrics. Efstathiadis and Burrage are studying medicine, Myers is about to graduate from engineering and Murfey graduated in science last year. The boys are the writers, Simpson produces and all five act in the sketches. “This is our first comedy fest and we’re all really excited about it,” she says. “We’ll see what other doors open; the dream would be to go to Edinburgh.” I Boss Octopus appear every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from March 28–April 20 (except April 6). At 8pm at the Bull & Bear Tavern, 347 Flinders Lane, city. Tickets: $15/$10. Details: visit trybooking.com or bossoctopus.com.

COVERSTORY

Our colour queen Emily Green started a style revolution with her signature bead necklaces. Alana Schetzer meets the girl behind the phenomenon

I

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

t was with utmost subtly that Emily Green conquered Melbourne. These days, you can hardly walk down Brunswick Street without bumping into half a dozen women wearing her colourful bead necklaces. The infiltration goes beyond a mere accessory into a statement about city culture: wearing an Emily Green necklace means you’re a Melburnian, as much as having a Myki card in your wallet. So it’s a surprise to learn that the woman who has become a shining light in the local craft and design scene isn’t from Melbourne. She moved here after studying fine arts in Perth. ‘‘My plan was to come here for a year but I decided to stay. I really loved it,’’ says the 29-year-old. Green’s designs are simple and affordable, priced at $20 for a pair of earrings up to $75 for a necklace, and that’s primarily why they are the must-have accessory of the moment. Small, colourful and strung together in surprising combinations, the Emily Green necklace is part of many a young Melbourne woman’s wardrobe, along with black clothes and vintage garments mixed with chainstore buys. ‘‘It’s such a nice thing as a maker to have people enjoying your work,” she says. “To make a piece of jewellery that people wear every day is really nice.” Tucked away in her small workroom in Napier Street, Fitzroy, Green and her assistant, Alicia Gordon, make each bead by hand from colourful polymer clay. The beads are moulded then baked in a small toaster oven that sits on top of shelving which holds hundreds of packages of clay. The beads are then strung on to either leather or silver chain. Green’s designs are first and foremost about colour – playful experiments with different pigments, intensity and combinations. Each one is a tribute to shade and light. ‘‘Colour is something I really enjoy,’’ she says. ‘‘The necklaces started because I like to explore different colour palettes. I actually used to use polymer clay when I was a kid and I was thinking about the pigment and the colour intensity. I thought it was a good medium to use.’’ Today, Green is wearing a yellow sundress, sky blue shoes, bright purple socks and a pair of her own earrings – cobalt blue, flecked with white and coral. She is a walking billboard for her own label. Born and raised in Perth, Green studied fine arts at university, then fashion and textiles at TAFE. After moving to Melbourne and taking a series of odd jobs, including working at a call centre, she completed her diploma of education and progressed into teaching art at a secondary school. The itch to create was working its way back into her system. ‘‘I guess the textile design was still appealing to me and I went back to that,’’ she says. ‘‘So I resigned from my job and started studying textile design at RMIT part-time.’’ The Emily Green label, like many brands, started off

with a single item: a brooch. People approached her on the street, asking where they could buy one just like it. Green then began making them for sale at local markets. ‘‘I picked up a couple of stockists and I started stocking at Craft Victoria, and then I started making the necklaces as well and, yeah, I guess as time has gone on the demand has increased,” she says. Green turned her hobby into a full-time career a year ago, quitting her job as a relief teacher and opening a studio in Fitzroy. In the studio, a small blue ball is playing its role in the Emily Green phenomenon. It sits, ever so briefly, on the workbench in front of Gordon before being rolled into shape, pressed slightly so it’s flattened, then skewered with a large needle to give it a hole. To one side, a metal tray is loaded with raw beads waiting to be baked and eventually added to the pile of supplies at the other end of the room. The studio is tiny but functional. Plain white walls are covered with a handmade tissue-paper garland, photos and pictures and a large, colourful “Emily Green” sign. There’s so much going on it’s hard to know where to look first. Green is genuinely surprised at her success. ‘‘It astounds me how popular they’ve been,” she says. “I never anticipated that I’d be making a living from this product. It’s good, it’s really good,’’ she says, laughing and shaking her head. ‘‘I don’t feel like I’ve had to push anything very hard, it’s just grown quite naturally,’’ Green says. ‘‘I guess I’ve been lucky in that I’ve received some good press, and I think I’ve just said ‘yes’ to things as well and that’s meant things keep developing.’’

In the past few months Green’s products have filtered from Melbourne across Australia. In October, fashion chain Sportsgirl asked her to create a frontwindow mural for its Melbourne Central store, which was then filmed and documented for its website. In January, cosmetics brand Bloom launched an Emily Green range of seven nail polishes – you can buy a necklace to match the colours on your fingers or toes. If there is a down side to success, it’s the inevitable emergence of copycats. Imitation might be a form of flattery, but it’s frustrating when you’re trying to build a business, Green says. ‘‘On one level it’s a compliment, but as a maker I struggle with it a bit,” she says. “I feel like everything I do is an endeavour to do something unique and entirely my own. I don’t understand how

people could be satisfied with creating something that’s not necessarily theirs.’’ Green is quietly spoken and she pauses to think about her words. She gives the impression she would like to say more, but restrains herself. ‘‘There’s not much you can do about it,” she says, finally. “I guess seeing that stuff reminds me to keep evolving and try new things.’’ The crafts cottage industry, largely made up of part-timers, is feeling the ripples of Green’s success. Milly Flemming, retail manager at Craft Victoria, says: ‘‘She hasn’t been around for long but she’s had a massive impact. She understands what it means to be an independent maker. She’s just ever the optimist and really passionate about the industry and really supportive of other makers. She’s an incredible inspiration.’’ This year is likely to be a big year for the Emily Green label. There’s a move to a bigger studio in nearby Gertrude Street and several collaborations in the pipeline: a lamp created with recent graduate industrial designer Dale Hardiman and co-designing shoes with local label Hobbs. ‘‘It’s nice to apply your knowledge to different mediums and to learn different things,’’ Green says. ‘‘I think sometimes the hurdle that stops you from doing different things is just working out how to do it.’’ Another collaboration on Green’s wish-list, also likely to come to fruition this year, is with Brunswick designer, illustrator and unofficial muse to the north, Beci Orpin. ‘‘She’s a total design idol of mine,’’ says Green. ‘‘So it’s been pretty amazing since meeting her and developing a friendship with her. I think we’ll try and do something this year.’’ The admiration is mutual. Orpin praises Green’s ‘‘brilliant knack for colour combinations’’. ‘‘I am the proud owner of several of her necklaces, which I wear on a weekly basis,” she says. Also on Green’s ever-expanding agenda are home-wares, cushions, digital prints and silk scarves, plus a range of knitted scarves. Green finds many of the ideas for her work in the inner north of Melbourne. She says the aesthetic of the area, in fashion, design and in the streets, is inspiring. “Most of my sales are still within Melbourne, so I think something special is happening here. It feeds both ways.’’ I Meet Emily Green at The Finders Keepers market, April 5-6 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens. Details: visit thefinderskeepers.com.

limb into practically any car made in Germany – anything from a Porsche to a Volkswagen – and the immediate impression is of solidity. It feels secure, robust, substantial. Above all it feels safe. It’s a thing the Germans can do that car makers across the rest of the world just can’t seem to achieve. But the Mazda 6 is coming close. It’s not quite a BMW 3-series but it’s as close as a Japanese car has got. It’s a most impressive thing. This all became clear on a sharp lefthand corner pitted and rutted with old,

weather-beaten bitumen. It gets most cars untidy at 100 km/h, but the 6 rounded it beautifully, solid as a rock. No lateral bounciness, no skipping, no OMG moment. It felt as good as a BMW. Japanese cars are not normally like this. You can pick them blindfolded; the controls are light, the handling is adequate if uninspiring, but there’s an overarching degree of blandness that makes the whole experience rather forgettable. The Mazda 6 has gone a cut above. The controls are light but accurate and fast, and nicely in touch with what’s happening. The suspension rides nicely but it’s firm enough to feel good in the twisty bits. Mostly it just feels really well built, organised and sorted. OK, the engine note, although not unpleasant is nowhere near as nice as a BMW; when it’s under full load it’s more noisy than stirring, but the car is quick off the mark and overtakes with authority. Road noise is high at freeway speeds

Mazda 6 Atenza What is it? Mazda’s big family car. What’s in it? A 138 kilowatt 2.5-litre four cylinder with a six-speed auto. Is it thirsty? I used 11 litres per 100 km in the city, 6.7 in the country. The official combined figure is 6.6. Drive away $51,216. Prices start at $37,388. Thumbs up Build quality, space, comfort.

despite Mazda’s electronic noise-cancelling technology. A change of tyres may help this. And Mazda’s auto start/stop is pretty rough. But it looks good. There’s a slightly muted aggression to the flowing lines and the back looks just as good as the front. I parked one beside a 3-series and it made the BMW look, well, rather boringly conventional. The interior is just as good; excellent seating, although headroom is tight in the back, all mod cons and good quality audio and navigation. Boot space is nothing special and under the floor you’ll only find a spacesaver spare. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable drive. My only complaint was that around the city the automatic transmission, which is calibrated for economy, can be less than responsive. The Atenza is the top model and diesel adds about $3000. Personally I’d have the petrol. I

PRESTON \ 5 BRUCE STREET

I

nteresting lives make for interesting houses, so it is no surprise vendors with an eye on the environment and personal well-being have put a unique stamp on a Californian bungalow within cooee of Northcote High Street. It comes down to the combination of materials and aesthetic: a rear extension has been constructed to bring in light and space courtesy of clever use of skylights and details. The latter is evidenced in a top-hung rear door that slides back to reveal a garden idyll, its heavy timber-and-glass weight carried by the support of a specifically designed structural beam. Materials, too, have played an important part in attaining an atmosphere of Nordic tranquillity. A cube of architectural plywood creating an upstairs mezzanine above the rear living room makes for a meditative space with its view over the green of hills and housing behind. Timber slats can be opened or closed – the former encouraging interaction with the house below just as the alternative ensures a degree of restful solitude. A deep Japanese-style bath in the adjoining bathroom is a thoughtful addition. Of course, it is not all form and no function. Its historic origin means this is a house of classic structure. Built in 1924, all three bedrooms to the front have decorative fireplaces while two have built-in wardrobes. (The first bedroom upon entry has staircase access to attic storage.) A skylight has been installed in the last bedroom to bring light into an otherwise dark room. The same technique has been employed in the renovated shared bathroom: the skylight is a modern touch reflected in the elegance of marble benchtops and a freestanding bath. Walk through to the rear and things take on a different (though still complementary) hue. The open-plan kitchen and living area encompasses that aforementioned mezzanine. It is an impressive redesign: what was once a kitchen window looking onto the back yard is now a square of space creating a sense of flow between the expanded living areas. It is a decision that works to keep the cook included in the social landscape while maintaining a delineation of space. Cooks will love the island benchtop and built-in crockery display across the sidewall. In the living room, built-in timber shelves combine with a combustion wood heater and those spectacular rear sliding doors to create an aesthetic that marries elegant country with that previously recounted Nordic sensibility. It is an experience echoed in the timber outdoor sauna with an exterior cold shower and a near-identical timber garden shed facing opposite. Rear-lane access means construction of a single-car garage is an option, though that would mean losing the small grove of fruit trees and raised vegetable beds that make this very much an edible garden. The timber deck covered by a Perspex roof over timber framing is an ideal viewpoint; at once open to the northern sun while remaining sequestered from the elements. Back inside, and the inclusion of a bathroom with the mezzanine leaves the space open to myriad uses. There is a strong sense of calm and quiet surrounding a house that belies its location so close to transport, school, cycling trails and the cafés and restaurants of High Street. \ SARINA LEWIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

The double-fronted weatherboard façade is preceded by lawn, rose gardens and a paved off-street parking area. Three of the four bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The main has a compact en suite. The main bathroom has a double vanity, a corner shower and a big spa bath. A separate third toilet adds to convenience. Arrived at by the timber staircase in the family-sized laundry, the attic room is currently used as a gym. Timber floors, butter-coloured walls and white ceilings define the open-plan area. The reproduction antique oven is an elegant feature. Glass doors in the living zone open to the rear verandah, which is elevated over a backyard with a lock-up shed. The local area buzzes with family services: Preston West Primary School, Preston Market and NMIT campus are nearby. \ KAY KEIGHERY

This c1910 worker’s cottage has been impressively reinvented. A major renovation five years ago has restored the original front rooms with new ornate cornices, ceiling roses and period pendant light fittings; features that continue through to a large extension with an open-plan kitchen, meals and family room. Combining period features with modern conveniences, a neutral colour palette and classic contemporary finishes, in old and new, has created all the character here. The three carpeted bedrooms lining the south wall have great floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobes. The stylish main bathroom is a bright space with a CaesarStone vanity, bath and frameless glass shower. A sparkling kitchen with stretches of CaesarStone benchtop and a jarrah island bench sets the scene for the rear domain. A Smeg six-burner stove and 900mm oven provide the tools and a bright indoor/ outdoor space with bifold doors to a rear deck form the arena. The big, undercover deck completes this great space. The front driveway provides off-street parking for two cars. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

NORTHCOTE \ 318 CLARKE STREET This 1920s house greets the street with a period façade but inside it’s all about innovative contemporary spaces signed off with custom detail. Legendary Melbourne Football Club coach Norm Smith lived in the property for some time, and former Melbourne great Ron Barassi was known to kick the footy around the backyard. A shared carriageway down the side of the house leads to an off-street parking space. Established greenery screens the white weatherboard façade. Meeting the central hall with full-height doors, all bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The big bathroom is admirably appointed with a glass shower and a bath. An internal garden signals entry to the semi-open plan kitchen/meals and dining/living areas. Glazed on three sides, this garden accommodates petunias, a pond and a tall palm. The kitchen and meals area has polished timber floors and stainless-steel appliances. One step below, the large living and dining area has terrazzo floor tiles, an open fireplace and a glass wall that slides away for indoor-outdoor flow. The backyard operates on low-water and low-maintenance principles with a pebbled terrace and native gardens traversed by stone pathways. At the rear, the studio with attached workshop is a boon. Plumbed and with a split-system heating and cooling unit, the studio is artist-friendly and would make a terrific teenager’s retreat. \ KAY KEIGHERY

Belmont was home to former Fitzroy mayor Harold Mackrell OAM for more than 80 years. Original stables in the huge backyard add to the tangible history and the Edwardian residence is only partially renovated, leaving plenty of scope for new owners to extend, renovate further and tailor spaces to personal needs. The freestanding façade is block-fronted and the front verandah has a concrete base. All bedrooms are double and three have open fireplaces. The bathroom comes as a lovely surprise with quality tiling, groovy vanity unit and a bath/shower combo. Benefiting from similarly stylish attention, the kitchen and meals area has stainless-steel appliances and sleek cabinetry. Next to the kitchen and meals, the living room has Baltic pine floors and a gas fireplace. The backyard awaits a landscaper’s touch; the carport opens to a wide laneway and those stables present as if frozen in time. Buses stop at the front door and trams, shops, cafés and riverside tracks are within easy strolling distance. Merri Creek Primary School is in the street. \ KAY KEIGHERY

Students bow out for finals

Brunswick Park wasted no time in meeting their targets, writes Daniel Paproth

IT WAS a heartbreaking end to the season for Melbourne University in Victorian Premier Cricket. The Students, who had a terrific season after finishing 17th in season 2011-12, were in the top eight until the final round, when Dandenong took an outright victory over the reigning premiers Richmond. The win meant Dandenong jumped from 10th and outside the top eight to the top four, and University was the unfortunate casualty, having previously lost to Essendon. But the Students have plenty of positives for the season. Wrist spinner Fawad Ahmed rose through the ranks at breakneck pace, made the Victorian team and is now being rumoured for the Ashes. Carlton hung onto its place in the top eight with 11 wins. However, it was somewhat of a fall from grace for the Blues, who finished on top of the ladder last season with 12 wins. They were 15 points clear that year but with more modest results in season 2012-13 and greater consistency from Melbourne, Ringwood and St Kilda, the latter two of which missed finals last season, the Blues slipped down the pecking order and met a sublime Prahran in the quarter finals. North Melbourne once again missed the finals but did improve to seven wins this season. The Kangaroos have a young squad and showed plenty of promise – at one point during the season chasing down 360 in 60 overs to beat Richmond – but weren’t able to play consistently and sometimes lacked in the bowling department. Trent Lawford – 538 runs at 38 and 33 wickets at 18 – was a marvellous find.

mma Inglis and Brunswick Park opening partner Elyse Villani had a set plan in their round 24 match against Melbourne earlier this month. ‘‘We just had 20-run targets that we wanted to knock off as we went along,’’ says Inglis. Inglis and Villani put on 369 for the first wicket in the one-day match before Villani was bowled – for 188 from 142 balls. Inglis, the captain and wicketkeeper, remained not out, and ended up with 180 from 145 balls as Brunswick Park made 1/412. The pair hit 58 boundaries between them. Melbourne struggled to 5/182 in reply, with Kyra Black’s 44 off 96 balls moving at glacial pace in comparison. This was in stark contrast to the match that Brunswick Park played a day earlier. It lost the Twenty20 final to Essendon Maribyrnong Park, making only 8/73 from 20 overs. Inglis and Villani faced just 19 balls between them, each making five. ‘‘It was good to get out there against Melbourne and put in a performance like that,’’ Inglis says. With only six teams in the first XI women’s competition, and Plenty Valley and Melbourne losing most of their matches, Brunswick Park was assured of finals. ‘‘The win over Melbourne really gave us

momentum going into the finals,’’ Inglis says, praising the efforts of Villani, who was playing with a dodgy knee. ‘‘It was her last game, with injections into her knee it put her out of action for the rest of the season. She’s a pretty talented girl, it was a fantastic effort to make those runs.’’ Inglis spends much of her time involved in cricket. When she’s not playing for Brunswick Park or Victoria she is working with Cricket Victoria. And as one of the brightest talents in the women’s game she is proud to have watched the competition grow ‘‘stronger and ‘‘stronger’’. ‘‘‘‘It used to be a lot slower and there were lower scores but now it’s really getting up there. It’s fantastic to get more exposure as well, to have some female role models up there. ‘‘The pace of our bowlers is increasing, as is the ability to hit the boundary, it’s a much more entertaining brand of cricket to watch.’’ But on the matter of having men and women representing Australia in the same Test side, as an Age writer suggested earlier this year, Inglis is sceptical. ‘‘It’s hard to compare the women’s game to the men’s game,’’ she says. ‘‘They are very different brands of cricket. We have some very talented girls but there are physical differences and they’re stronger. The women’s game gets a lot more technical.’’
