JAMES PENLIDIS

Fitzroy author Graeme Simsion’s debut novel, The Rosie Project, started life as a writing course assignment and won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript

Getting short-listed made it for me; it meant it was legitimate. It was a huge breakthrough and from then on, I made it. I was inspired by a friend’s story, a friend who had a hard time finding a life partner. He was a very smart guy, but not so much on the social front. And so (the book) started off as a dramatic screenplay. It was inspired by him as a character and it morphed into a comedy with a different sub-plot and then last year I converted it from a screenplay to a novel. I always wanted to write a novel and having characters and plot made it easy. I had no idea when I finished The Rosie Project whether I had written anything good at all. I was personally really happy with it, but I had no idea how it would stand against other fiction. I’ve given up my day job and I see myself now primarily as a novelist and I’m going to focus on writing new books. The Rosie Project / Text Publishing / $29.99

Power to the people The carbon tax, supposed to encourage investment in alternative energy sources, is usually blamed for the massive hikes in energy costs (‘‘Terminal plans slammed’’, MTW, February 13). However, the cost of electricity started spiraling out of control before the carbon tax hit our bills. The real cost of power is the fixed costs, of the expensive infrastructure that must not only be upgraded and replaced, but constantly stretched. The $271 million ‘‘upgrade’’ is an over-simplification. A growth-based economy will eventually compound in costs and problems, and drown us in debt, wires and increasing costs of living. The streamlining of approval for residential towers for Melbourne will depend on high quantities of power, and residents in high rises inevitably will consume more per capita of electricity. Incidences of illness from the radiation means people under the path of all this infrastructure will simply be

collateral damage to the worship of growth. Tony B / via website

Cigweld Preston jobs head overseas BY ALANA SCHETZER aschetzer@mmpgroup.com.au

ABOUT 30 jobs will be lost after a Preston-based manufacturer announced it would shut down part of its operations and use imported products. Cigweld, in Gower Street, manufactures cutting and welding

products for the energy, mining and earth moving, repair and maintenance, transportation and manufacturing industries. The warehouse division and medical product assembly will continue to operate, but the majority of the company’s manufacturing workers will be made redundant by the end of June.

A spokesman confirmed the closure, saying products will be sourced from various companies related to Cigweld that are based overseas. He said all affected workers would receive their full entitlements. Australian Workers Union Victorian branch secretary Cesar Melhem said it was an ‘‘enormous regret’’ that the company was repla-

cing locally made goods with imports. ‘‘The union is committed to being [a] union with members that make things,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s vital that manufacturing remains in this country and we try and avert things like this.’’ Mr Melhem credited the company for supporting its workers, but

added ‘‘it doesn’t make up for the fact that these jobs are gone’’. Manufacturing was once one of the biggest employers in the area but has slowly been eroded by cheaper overseas labour. According to the 2011 census, only 1169 Preston residents work in manufacturing, compared to 1360 in 2006.

Preston works big on safety BY DAN MOSS State parliament editor

Instruments of change ROCKERS The Transplants will have families bopping along to their punk/blues tunes in a Lygon Street concert this Sunday afternoon. The band will perform at a free music and community event at Argyle Square as part of DonateLife Week 2013. The event, which takes place between 11am and 3pm, is part of a national initiative promoting awareness of life-changing organ and tissue donation. The Transplants (pictured above) have a special connection with the event as each band member is a liver recipient. Transplants singer Jo Fraser (pictured right) said as well as having a laugh with her “maniacally energetic” band mates, the event was a

fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of organ donation. “The day’s about getting people that say they’ll register as donors off their butts to sign up,” Fraser said, “and to get people that have signed up to let their loved ones know their wishes.” Fraser, who has battled with an auto-immune disease for about 10 years, has received two liver donations. She needs a third. Last year more than 1000 Australians received transplants. Rappers Little G and Flybz, as well as African drummers, Bollywood dancers and many more will join The Transplants for the event. – Daniel McCulloch

WORKS at a Preston intersection to increase visibility have concluded at a cost of $830,000. About 25 crashes that resulted in casualties were recorded at the intersection of Bell Street and St Georges Road in Preston in the past five years, said Transport Minister Terry Mulder. Nine of those crashes led to serious injuries. VicRoads recently completed works that included laying non-slip bitumen at the intersection. The left-turn slip lane on the northbound section of St Georges Road was moved to increase visibility for drivers. Traffic signals were also upgraded. Mr Mulder said the works should make the intersection safer for drivers and cyclists, and reduce the risk of people running red lights. The project is part of the $650 million, 10-year Safer Roads Infrastructure Program. ‘‘This is a very positive measure to ensure safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers,’’ said Northern Metropolitan MLC Craig Ondarchie.

Mugging attempt fails

Dimmey’s conversion starts

A firearm was drawn on a 32-year-old man in Brunswick in what is believed to be an attempted mugging. A man told Brunswick police he was approached by two men near the corner of Cassels Road and Tinning Street at 10.40pm on February 15. Brunswick Senior Sergeant Mick Moloney said the man was speaking on his phone at the time. He said the man reported being grabbed from behind and that one of the men pulled out a handgun. He said both men fled after they were startled by a passing car.

A slice of Richmond history started to fall away last week as redevelopment of the former Dimmey’s department store in Richmond began. The historic building will be converted into 10-storey complex, including 82 apartments and a supermarket. The Swan Street facade, part of the western wall in Byron Street, part of the eastern wall in Green Street and part of the rear wall will be retained. Construction is expected to take eight months.

Truck rules to be reviewed Yarra City Council will review its rules for food trucks following feedback that the by-law allowing them to operate in the area was too restrictive. Yarra council allowed food trucks into the inner north from July last year but so far no businesses have bought a permit, as the guidelines state food trucks cannot operate within 200 metres of a takeaway food business. Council officers will prepare a report for its March 5 meeting suggesting possible changes to the by-law.

Plan for reservoir trees Preston Reservoir will undergo a 15-year plan for revegetation and renewal as part of a Melbourne Water plan. A draft Landscape Master Plan has been released for public submissions and details plans to replace ageing Monterey Cypress trees lining both sides of High Street with Australian native trees. MW says The Cypress trees are reaching the end of their lives and could pose a safety risk if not replaced. An information session will be held on March 16 at the 18-hectare site.

Teens show team spirit Croxton Special School students Marina, Andrew and Ishanka have been practising their slam dunks as they prepare to play against Kilsyth Basketball Association this week. The students are taking part in a 12-week Disability Sport and Recreation program that teaches them how to work together in team sports. Students with an intellectual disability are less likely to be active than their typical developing peers and the program includes a boot camp to help get them moving. The game is on this Friday at the Croxton Special School, 159 Beaconsfield Parade Northcote, between 1pm and 2pm.

BY ALANA SCHETZER COPENHAGEN-STYLE bicycle lanes will be introduced to Collingwood in a bid to increase safety and encourage more people to start cycling. Wellington Street, between Victoria Parade and Johnston Street, will become the first road in Yarra to have the paths, which separate cyclists from traffic via a row of parking or traffic islands. Yarra council endorsed the proposal last Tuesday following lengthy consultation with traders, residents and cycling groups. As part of the project, 117 car spaces will be removed and council officers will start working on a design plan. Bicycle Network Victoria spokesman Garry Brennan said the council was ‘‘leading the way’’ in responding to Melbourne’s growing shift from

cars to bikes. ‘‘The last census showed that record numbers of Yarra citizens are choosing to use bikes,’’ he said. ‘‘These new lanes will lessen conflict with motor traffic and reduce the risk of dooring crashes in particular.’’ Yarra mayor Jackie Fristacky said the lanes should provide ‘‘world-class infrastructure’’ for cyclists and would encourage more people to hop on their bikes. ‘‘Cyclist numbers on Wellington Street have been growing about 20 per cent a year for the past eight years, with counts showing 416 city-bound cyclists ride the Johnston Street to Victoria Parade section in the two-hour morning peak period,’’ she said. The majority of the 649 public submissions on the issue supported Copenhagen-style bicycle lanes. In 2010, Melbourne City council opened a similar bicycle lane in Albert Street, East Melbourne.

Getting a great drop by tap Two by Two’s Ben Sanders is tapping into a new approach to serving water at his Northcote restaurant – water by tap, thanks, not by the bottle. The restaurant is one of about 20 Northcote businesses to drop selling bottled water as part of a new Yarra Valley Water program, Choose Tap. Sanders says serving bottled water is ‘‘crazy’’ when Melbourne’s tap water is of such excellent quality. ‘‘We’re a new business and when we opened up it was part of our ethos to buck the trend and serve just tap water and local bottled sparkling mineral water,’’ he says.

Warehouse set for legal fun

Protesters discover toilet humour Every public loo launch deserves a bit of pomp and ceremony – or at least champagne. The Protectors of Public Lands (Victoria) have long opposed this Royal Park loo, saying it does not belong at the entrance to the Australian Native Garden. They christened it "Doyle’s Dunny" in honour of Melbourne’s Lord Mayor and staged a mock opening, with Phil Lewfatt and Margaret Jungwirth (pictured), to make their displeasure known. Group secretary Julianne Bell said the stainless steel loo looked ‘‘like a space capsule’’. The convenience was not living up to its promise – it was closed to the public at the time of the faux-ceremony. The group’s ‘‘Doyle’s Dunny’’ sign was still attached to the gleaming edifice last week. Will the name stick?

‘‘GOING legal’’ has been good for Brunswick venue Rubix, space director Tanz El-Gamel says. Rubix, the venue component of Phoenix Street’s Tetris Complex, celebrated becoming a licensed venue last week with a video game-themed ‘‘game on’’ event. El-Gamel first approached the police and City of Moreland council about becoming a legal venue three years ago, but said it took a year’s work to bring the space up to standards. In February 2012 the City of Moreland launched a crackdown on illegal warehouse parties, passing a motion declaring them a safety and fire hazard for partygoers and residents, and saying had to stop. El-Gamel said the Tetris Complex was not the typical warehouse site. The space has 14 studios hosting a diverse group of artists, including graphic designers, photographers, dancers and musicians. She said Brunswick was ‘‘a strong-

hold for the arts community’’ and the Rubix venue aimed to showcase the work created at Tetris. To meet council standards new toilets had to be installed, exits created and the bar upgraded. El-Gamel said transforming the space was difficult and it cost about $100,000. ‘‘We are now able to run events without living in constant paranoia for getting in trouble for it,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s opened that door for it to be a professional space, rather than it being seen as a dingy, illegal warehouse.’’ Brunswick Police Senior Sergeant Mick Moloney said he wished ElGamel all the best. ‘‘We are not the anti-fun police. We are not anti what she and others want to do, we just want it done the right way,’’ he said. He encouraged places that host illegal parties to follow suit. Moreland mayor Oscar Yildiz said the number of illegal parties was ‘‘slightly diminishing’’. He said the council was would help operators to ensure ‘‘the safety of partygoers is first and foremost’’.

When Peter Hogg drew up plans for a larger Errol Street park more than five years ago, his children were students at the nearby North Melbourne Primary School. They have graduated, but the family still celebrated last week’s official opening of the more spacious Errol Street Reserve, which is enjoyed by the community including students Mija, Joshua, Du-Monette, Caitlin and Mubarik (pictured). The City of Melbourne spent $2 million reclaiming roads to extend the triangular reserve from 529 square metres to about 4900 square metres. Mr Hogg, who was among the residents lobbying for the larger park, said: "It’s not just for the kids at the school – it’s for everyone, the whole community. It’s just great, there was a whole lot of asphalt before.’’

Cracks delay pool opening BY CHRIS HINGSTON THE Brunswick Baths re-opening has again been pushed back after cracks were found on the floor of the new 50-metre outdoor pool. It was originally hoped the $17 million Moreland City Council baths revamp would be complete in time for summer. Engineers are investigating the extent of the damage, with the council still unsure how long the pool opening will be delayed. Moreland council chief executive Peter Brown said two heavy rains in December and January had led to flooding beneath the floor of the new pool, with pressure on the pool’s base causing minor cracking and dislodging tiles. Pumps were in place to drain the water but did not operate due to a circuit-breaker failure. Mr Brown said

the damage occurred while the pool was empty, a time when the structure was most vulnerable. Any additional cost would be borne by the contracted builder, Kane Construction, not the council, Mr Brown said. The baths’ reopening has already been delayed once, following the discovery of contaminated soil. Mr Brown said council was ‘‘extremely disappointed’’ the project had been delayed. ‘‘I understand the frustration that baths users must be feeling already having to put up with a five-month delay last year,’’ he said. It is expected the new 50-metre pool will have a lifespan of 50 years. He said the council was determined to deliver a ‘‘first-rate facility’’. The baths’ ‘‘dry facilities’’, including a gym and childcare centre, are on track to open in mid-March.

There’ll be dancing in the street when the 25th Brunswick Music Festival fires up next month. Chris Hingston meets the men who got the party started

Dobe Newton, Danny Bourke and Peter Leman [ 10 ] MELBOURNE TIMES WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

nside the Retreat Hotel, Brunswick Music Festival founders Peter Leman, Dan Bourke and Dobe Newton pore over the program of acts they helped assemble in 1989. The Brunswick pub is an apt locale to reflect on that first festival – it served as a kind of spiritual home for the two-week event that celebrates its 25th year next month. It’s here that plans for a Brunswick Music Festival were hatched over cold pots of beer and, later, where countless festival acts performed. What began as a weekend celebration of the innernorth’s burgeoning music scene has morphed into a musical extravaganza, boasting 28 shows over two weeks and becoming a Brunswick institution. The annual Sydney Road Street Party, that kick-starts festivities, draws crowds of 50,000.

February 27, 2013

The original program – featuring Melbourne artists such as folk singer Judy Small and the Purple Dentists as well as international acts such as Tommy and Phil Emmanuel – might have faded, but the trio’s dedication to the event has not. The festival had three directors in its inaugural year, all of them musos. There was Newton, part of Australian folk and country music act The Bushwackers, Bourke of the Purple Dentists – known as Melbourne’s first world-music band – and George Galiatsos of the Brunswick-forged Apodimi Compania. From year one they struck upon the winning formula that’s still used today: a blend of local, national and international bands designed to spotlight Melbourne musicians and highlight the broad cultural mix of the greater-Brunswick community. “We had a line-up in the first festival that would stand up

today,” says Leman, who was the City of Brunswick’s community arts officer when the festival began and has stepped in as director of this year’s event after long-time director John McAuslan was sidelined by ill-health.

Planning the 25th festival has not been without the occasional hiccup, though – renovations meant the Brunswick Town Hall was off-limits this year and long-time director, John McAuslan’s illness saw Leman step in to run the show. But for Leman, such obstacles don’t detract from the festival’s milestone. “It grew from humble beginnings into a significant event. The fact that we’ve reached the 25th year and that we are such an established and well-known festival – that is a real highlight,” he says. His stint as director comes after a long and varied association with the festival, having taken on roles including street party stalls co-ordinator and festival website manager. Although he admits stepping in for McAuslan has been tough, he says it is nice to take a lead role in the silver anniversary year.

Absent from today’s gathering is Galiatsos, whose band left Brunswick to make it big in Greece. Apodimi Compania’s weekly sets at the Retreat in the late eighties are the stuff of local legend. The band would play rebetika – “the Greek blues” – as well as Greek folk and dance music to a room heaving with people and cigarette smoke. “It was magic, a great venue full of largerthan-life characters – everyone wanted to go and play there,” says Leman, who in a roundabout way introduced the band to the Retreat, after they recorded an LP as part of the council’s Brunswick Recordings program and needed a venue to launch it. Leman says the Brunswick Music Festival piggy-backed off a number of council arts programs, such as the Music of Migration concert at Brunswick Town Hall, that launched in the mid-1980s and helped foster the live music scene. “People began to identify Brunswick as a place for music and performance,’’ he says. ‘‘We were developing a very strong community of musicians from all different cultural backgrounds and musical styles. By 1988 there was such a diversity of music being made in Brunswick the idea of a John McAuslan Long-time festival director festival became almost inevitable.” Galiatsos, speaking from Athens, also remembers the thriving music scene. He says while Apodimi Compania had its Retreat residency, a few blocks away other bands were also finding an audience. “There was not just Greek music, there was Lebanese music, there was music from all over.” Although his band shifted to Greece in the mid-’90s, Galiatsos and Co have travelled back repeatedly for the festival. “We have this almost silent agreement, to come back and play at the festival,” Galiatsos says. “It’s more or less like coming home.” This will be a bittersweet festival for the band. It is their first time back since the death of long-standing member and multiinstrumentalist Hector Cosmas. The 25th festival will host the first annual Hector Cosmas Memorial Concert. Galiatsos says that Cosmas’ death was a big loss, but the concert will be dedicated to Greek music and ensuring the cultural connection between Brunswick and Greece remains part of future festivals. Dobe Newton, whose band The Bushwackers regularly played around the inner north in the ’80s, says it was “probably brave” of the local council – then the City of Brunswick – to ever agree to fund the festival. The City of Brunswick’s successor, the City of Moreland, is still a major sponsor. “We were always conscious that we were spending ratepayers’’ money,” says Newton. “At the end of the first festival, when we were That Wise is using crowd-funding website Pozible, where pretty exhausted and really happy, it was a highlight just to realise we fans can donate online to help fund her second album, shows hadn’t lost any money … and that they wanted us to do another one.” how the industry has changed since Apodimi Compania Newton believes one of the reasons the festival continues to thrive committed its sound to vinyl in the 1980s. is that while it has grown, it has never lost its heart. “We wanted it to be a true representation of what’s happening in the community,” he Many of the names from the festival’s first says. “It’s a community festival at heart, if it loses that it becomes just program have returned for the 25th; the Purple Dentists are another event.” reforming, Irish folk musician Andy Irvine will return, and The festival, like Brunswick itself, continues to evolve.

ow dumb can traffic laws get? China appears to be on the verge of rescinding the dumbest one it’s got; that drivers must stop at yellow lights regardless of their speed or proximity to the light. Under the law, drivers running yellow lights face the same punishment as those running reds, and have six points deducted from their licence (12 in a year and you’re out until you complete a week-long road safety course and pass an onerous exam). The law, which obviously sounded good to some powerful official that was unfamiliar with Newtonian physics, was enacted on January 1 to address China’s startling road toll (62,000 last year – the worst in the world by almost any measure) and led to a deluge of rear-enders. The public uproar has been such that just six days into things, the government announced that it was suspending enforcement of the new law while it re-examined the idea. But that’s not China’s dumbest idea, by the way – that was proposed during the Cultural Revolution when the Red Guard wanted to switch traffic lights around; red for go, green for stop. Dumb traffic laws are hardly confined to China. The USA has some rippers. In California it’s illegal to jump from a car travelling at more than 105 km/h, and women are not allowed to drive in house coats. In New Jersey the law that a motor vehicle being operated after dark must be preceded by someone carrying a lantern has never been repealed. In Alabama you break the law by driving while blindfolded, and you’re also in trouble if you drive without shoes. If you are convicted of drunk driving in New Jersey you lose the right to a vanity number plate. In Nevada it’s illegal to ride a camel on the highway and in Massachusetts you may not drive with a gorilla in the rear seat. In Oxford, Mississippi, you’ll be in trouble if honking your horn upsets a horse and if you tether your elephant to a parking meter in

Florida you’ll be expected to put money in the meter just as you would with your car. When proceeding down Rancho California Road in Temecula, California, note that ducks always have right of way. In San Francisco you’ll be in real trouble if you wipe your windscreen with used underwear, and the fine for running into a pedestrian in Sarasota, Florida, is $78. And if you’re sick of ice cream vans move to Indianola, Iowa, where they are banned. But our favourite comes from England, where plague sufferers are not allowed in taxis. Taxi drivers are still required to ask passengers if they have plague – it’s scandalous how many no longer bother. I

Things you didn’t know about motoring Until 1976, when the law was repealed, English taxis had to have sufficient headroom for gentlemen to wear top hats and enough space beside the driver for a bale of hay and a bag of oats.

THORNBURY \ 109 DAREBIN ROAD

T

o find a vendor who knows so much about a house is a boon. Marry that with a determination of said vendor to restore a compromised house to its former Federation glory, and real estate that was a faded reminder of Melbourne’s past has become a city treasure. Built in 1909 atop Ruckers Hill by a family flush with mining money, the house stands as a statement of architectural independence that was given birth by the nation’s move to Federation. Positioned in a line of five houses of similar standing, this property represents a real piece of the area’s architectural history. An avid genealogist, the vendor has compiled a detailed history of the house – including an original copy of the title – that she will happily pass on to the next caretaker. Gone are the frills of Victorian architecture, replaced by a more pragmatic – though no less grand – style that more properly represents formal Australia’s youthful beginnings. That some of these touches were lost during earlier renovations was seen as an opportunity to refresh and restore the landmark property by the current vendor. She has, as she puts it, gone from “front fence line to back fence line”. The result is a gasp-worthy residence surrounded by rambling secret gardens with two street frontages. Climb the steep front pathway buffered by native plantings to an entrance portico whose breathtaking views almost distract from the portico’s pressed-metal ceiling and impressive front door framed by elegant leadlight details. The pleasures continue inside. Stunning vistas through large-framed windows in both front rooms have made for two bedrooms of grand stature. The pressed-metal ceiling seen here is carried the length of the central passageway. The vendors’ dedication has meant the fireplaces that were pulled out of all four bedrooms have been restored: the two in the front room are working reproductions with the hearth tiles being the only remaining original material, while the surrounds of the fireplaces in bedrooms three and four have been restored and reinstated. There is no en suite. Instead, a sympathetic renovation introducing a lightwell and sunken tub to the main bathroom is just the sort of modern amenity that serves to enhance the house without affecting its character. It’s a theme that plays out in the laundry (a room to covet with its built-in wardrobes) and in the open-plan kitchen, living and meals space. Generous use of timber sits in harmony with dark granite benchtops, clean white walls and a flood of light that streams through from the rear courtyard, which is paved with bricks reclaimed from the tumble of stables and sheds that once dotted the backyard. A formal living room off to the left is thoughtfully segregated. With its fireplace and independent access through french doors to the exterior, this has become recognised as a quiet winter room. Ideal, says the vendor, for quaffing the red wine currently stored in the under-house cellar kitted out with shelves for 70 dozen bottles. Of course, there is more. Fruit trees hang heavy with edible offerings down a side pathway, while an outdoor seating arrangement visible from one of the front bedrooms speaks to the secret nooks created by the prolific garden. A covered barbecue in the rear has seen plenty of entertaining, and the 10,000-litre capacity water tanks help keep the garden verdant. Accessed via Bayview Street is the single-car garage. The second car space currently houses a garden shed, but could easily be modified to accommodate an additional vehicle. Extra amenities include an alarm system, zoned gas ducted heating and split-system air-conditioning in the open-plan living area. It’s a few minutes’ walk from Westgarth Village, rail and tram lines and Merri Creek parkland. \ SARINA LEWIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

A good floor plan and a north-facing rear orientation are two of the appealing features of this 1930s art-deco bungalow that has scope for further updating. A high timber fence with remote-controlled door is a practical addition here as it secures the front yard and provides privacy from the bustle of Darebin Road. On entry, the house’s period rooms impress as classic deco stained-glass windows provide a focal point and dark-wood picture rails and skirting boards, ornate ceiling detailing and polished boards complete the much-loved period look. Sliding doors with etched-glass inserts separate the lounge and dining rooms for added versatility. Chocolate and beige interiors work well with the high, white ceilings and both rooms feature brick fireplaces with timber mantels. The three bedrooms line the west side of the house, along with a main bathroom. The rear bedroom has a wall of windows and sliding-door access to the back deck. The sunny north-facing deck is a great update and an easy-maintenance paved courtyard is perfect for entertaining. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Built in the 1890s, the original footprint of Pear Tree Cottage has been increased by an architect-designed extension. A pear tree shades the front garden and the name appears in leadlight above the front door. All bedrooms are carpeted and cooled by ceiling fans. The main bedroom has a walk-through wardrobe and en suite. Where others might have a lightwell, here a west-facing timber deck brings light and separation between the living and sleeping quarters. Brushbox floorboards, a high peaked ceiling and natural light characterise the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, which has a gas log fireplace and two sets of concertina glass doors to the rear verandah, which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. L-shaped, brick-paved, canopied by a sloping pergola with covered and uncovered sections and hung with café blinds, it’s usable in sunshine or in rain. The backyard has a big shed, lawn and a right-of-way. Near riverside parklands, public transport, schools and shops, all this place wants for is a partridge! \ KAY KEIGHERY

CARLTON NORTH \ 160 MCILWRAITH STREET A modest brick façade does little to prepare visitors for the depth of this renovated Edwardian house – plus apartment – that claims two street frontages. Space and scale appeal in equal measure with period touches that add charm and dimension to a family-sized house that has benefited from a thoughtful renovation. Enter off the quiet one-way street facing Princes Hill Primary School and be swept up in the dream of family living in one of Melbourne’s liveliest inner-city suburbs. The house has charm in spades, from the leadlight-accented bay window in a front bedroom to an ornately arched central passageway, a clawfoot tub in the main bathroom and the decorative fireplaces converted to gas in three of the four bedrooms. Contrast this with touches of luxurious modernity (think a double shower in the main bedroom’s en suite, a beautiful wine cellar reached via a large trapdoor in the floor of the main hallway, and a built-in spa in the rear paved courtyard) and the tone is set. If a kitchen with double oven and openplan meals and living space tumbling into the backyard is not enough to tempt, look further to the self-contained, two-level, two-bedroom apartment (with its own separate street address and entry) above the three-car remote-controlled garage. Gas ducted heating and its central location are a bonus. \ SARINA LEWIS

The vast view from the rooftop terrace of this townhouse is bound to be a friend-magnet. Because the Nicholas Murray-designed floor plan is suitable for executive, family or downsizer living, those friends might span a few generations. Ground level greets with a home office and automatic garage. The first floor has a bathroom and two bedrooms, of which the main gets an en suite and balcony. The second floor is dedicated to open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas with light-reflecting blond timber floors. The kitchen has Smeg appliances and CaesarStone benchtops. The dining area has glass doors to a north-facing balcony and the living area balances the act with city glimpses. Up again, and the timber-decked roof terrace offers fabulous and far-reaching scenery. Clear days allow views of the Dandenong Ranges, while in the evenings skyscrapers seem to swim in a sea of lights. Nearby, Rathdowne Village entices with bars, cafés and shops. Carlton Gardens and Lygon Street are minutes away, and those in city-based employment could choose to walk. \ KAY KEIGHERY

PRESTON \ 3 NUGENT STREET An art-deco enthusiast has renovated this stylish Californian bungalow with an attention to detail that is great to admire after the fact rather than have to perform yourself. The joy of a new bathroom with tessellated tile floor, claw-foot bath and a decorative band of art deco-motif tiles at eye level can be appreciated here. This three-bedroom house has great period rooms that are warm and comfortable with a contemporary paint job that enhances the high ceilings, period light fittings and warm timber features that are a highlight. The lounge and dining rooms have latte and cream interiors with a bold red feature wall. Polished floorboards in the front of the house are elegant. The front main bedroom now has the convenience of an en suite, which, like the main bathroom, has deco features. Here, a deco mirror and a pink and green stained-glass window stand out. The new central kitchen extends over a breakfast bar to an open meals/living area that has ceiling fan and bifold doors to the rear deck. The functional tiled space is sleek with black granite benchtops, downlights, timber cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. The rear third bedroom, off the meals area, is large with a chequerboard ceiling in cream and taupe tones and has views of the backyard. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

This two-storey Victorian terrace has earned Heritage Council recognition for its Italianate façade and rare cornice work. During 20 years’ residence, the vendor has restored the interior, carefully retaining minutiae, including the original servery. The only structural modification has been the addition of a glazed conservatory. Details on the rendered façade create noteworthy flourish and three grand archways gracing the front verandah are mirrored by those on the balcony above. The foyer establishes elegant ambience with high ceilings, cornices and traditionally patterned carpet. Four of the five fireplaces are plumbed for gas. The study has enough bookshelves to be called a library, and the sitting and dining rooms have lightwell illumination. The kitchen and meals area has polished floorboards and contemporary appliances. Folding doors connect the family area and the conservatory, which has tiled flooring and glass doors to a timber deck. Four bedrooms and a bathroom continue the grand treatment upstairs. Three sets of french doors link the main bedroom with the front balcony, where an Edinburgh Garden backdrop heightens history-rich outlooks. \ KAY KEIGHERY

Athletics glory a team effort

Blues bow out on first innings

Shield win a thrill for Brunswick Athletics Club, as Daniel Paproth reports

CARLTON lost on first innings against Frankston Peninsula in Victorian Premier Cricket. The Blues were bowled out for 178 on day one of the match and the Heat passed the total just three wickets down, with Matthew Gapes (63 not out) and Matthew Chasemore (43 not out) getting Frankston over the line. Ryan Sidebottom took 2/37 to be the best of the bowlers for Carlton. North Melbourne fell 29 runs short of an outright victory over Northcote but still managed to take the points in a big win. Chasing Northcote’s 211 for victory the Kangaroos declared at 6/317, passing the total five wickets down. Trent Lawford was unbelievable with the bat, passing 50 in just 15 balls to break the record for fastest North Melbourne half-century. He made 64 not out. He also took 5/51 as they rolled Northcote for 165 in their second innings. North had four overs to make 59 runs and scored 1/30. Melbourne University took the points against Casey-South Melbourne with a huge second innings. Chasing 203 University made 8/289, with Mark Simpson making 78, Jarrod Martignago 42 and returned state player Fawad Ahmed 30. Going for outright the Students had the Swans 2/68 when play ended. Footscray Edgewater’s first innings total of 9/342 proved too much for Richmond. The Tigers were bowled out for 226 in reply, with Daniel Sartori’s 84 not out the best score. Andrew Delmont also made 44.

brilliant season culminated in glory for Brunswick Athletics Club earlier this month when it won the division three title in AV Shield. Brunswick, which competes in the Metropolitan North-West section of Athletics Victoria, topped the ladder for most of the season. The club sealed the trophy win on February 16 after it finished with 330.50 points, nearly 90 points ahead of its nearest rivals, Casey Cardinia and Haileybury. During the day’s competition, Brunswick won the 4x100m relay by nearly two seconds and Ned McLeod had a day to remember, winning gold in the 400m, placing second in the long jump and javelin, and finishing seventh in the 1500m. Other medal results included silver and bronze for Samuel Lewis in the 110m hurdles and the 100m respectively, and gold and bronze in the pole vault for Travis Rickard and David Edwards. Head coach and club secretary Ronda Jenkins said it was a great day for the club. ‘‘It was a long day – the first event was just after 10am and it was nearly 7.30pm by the time the result was announced – but it was great to be presented with the shield,’’ she says. ‘‘We had 10 boys competing and they won by a pretty big margin. They were on top right
