MURPHY’s LORE

ALAN Murphy \ NEW HOME, NEW WORRIES FOR BOMBERS

E

ssendon Football Club moves into its new state-of-the-art facility at Tullamarine this week. The club’s new home is twice the size of the Windy Hill footprint and has cost an estimated $27 million. As former chairman David Evans promised, the high performance centre is within budget, but the relocation from Windy Hill is almost a year later than planned. More importantly, club bean-counters are still chasing about $8 million to pay for it. Not surprisingly, promoting the Tullamarine centre would have been reluctantly forced onto the back burner during this tumultuous year which saw the club preoccupied off-field by the supplements saga, which hopefully has been put to bed – unless ASADA rears its head again. But among the members, there has been little excitement about Tullamarine despite a vigorous launch and campaign during the past three years . The club hasn’t been able to fully sell David Evans’ vision that five to 10 years down the track Windy Hill would be

obsolete for a top AFL club. Both the Bomber shop and the Windy Hill social club remain viable entities at Windy Hill. HIRD MENTALITY

Thompson is successful next year, then the fans will support his continuing role as senior coach. So it may well come down to Hird or Thompson as coach for 2015, but not both in coaching roles.

The current media leaks, as fine-tuned through the Sheedy years, by those in the past, have their source at board successive boards over the past three decades. level, indicating a lack of unanimity among The argument is that it is James, as well as directors.

supplements and other issues rests with them. Chairman Paul Little and his finance director Paul Brasher have the corporate skills to restore the club’s fortunes. Their leadership has been superb, but they need experienced new faces to build a stronger, effective board. They should have the chance to recommend new directors without bypassing the constitutional process. Surprisingly, no date has been determined for the annual meeting, usually held a week before Christmas. Board nominations close 35 days before the date of the annual meeting. Retiring directors should be challenged, with members deciding whether new faces can help restore respect to the club. Then seek to win back the support of the broader football family.

Cover Story Kathy Reichs’ best-selling crime novels are informed by her other life as a forensic anthropologist, writes SARAH MARINOS

K

Bones of the Lost by Kathy Reichs » $32.95 (William Heinemann)

athy Reichs vaguely knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. Born in Chicago to a mother who was a musician and a corporate father, she had visions of working in a science laboratory, wearing a white coat and squinting through a microscope. “My mother was interested in science and she had a big impact on me,” says Reichs, reflecting on what led her to become a “bone whisperer” or more correctly, a forensic anthropologist. “I was intrigued by archaeology and the life sciences, like biology,” she says. “I still like working with something physical that I can measure and touch. I like being able to X-ray and measure bones, to determine their shape and to create a biological profile. But it was a long, circuitous path to forensic anthropology and I had five undergraduate majors.” Reichs graduated with a degree in anthropology from American University in Washington DC. But it was when she completed a masters and a PhD in physical anthropology that she found home. Her career, however, hasn’t turned out exactly as she expected. “I planned to study prehistoric Native Americans. I was digging up skeletons and looking at the bones to see what diseases people had suffered and what life expectancy was back then,” she says. “And then police started bringing me forensic cases because my expertise was in the human skeleton and in bones. I found that work more compelling.” Reichs, who is in her early 60s, works as a forensic anthropologist in North Carolina, where she lives, and in Quebec. Her ability to extract complex information from human bones has allowed her to help identify remains at Ground Zero after 9/11 and in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. She was also involved in the exhumation of a mass grave in Guatemala at the end of the civil war that left more than 200,000 people dead. Reichs has been closely involved in more bizarre cases, too, and some of them have inspired her novels. In the mid-1990s she studied the killing of a family in Quebec linked to the murder-suicide of 74 members of the Order of the Solar Temple. That inspired one of her early books, Death Du Jour. She has just published her 16th title, Bones of the Lost. “The Order of the Solar Temple was run by a man called Joe De Mambro who regulated all reproduction in the cult. But a couple had a baby without his permission and De Mambro considered that baby to be the Anti-Christ. The members of the group were planning to commit mass suicide and go to the planet Sirius,” Reichs says with a wry smile. “But before they could leave the Anti-Christ had to be killed. The parents and their baby fled to Switzerland and then to Quebec but De Mambro sent assassins to kill the family. Their house was set on fire and their bodies came to my lab. “I may work with bones or a corpse that is dismembered or mummified. Anytime a body is compromised so you can’t do a normal autopsy it goes to the forensic anthropologist. They are not in good shape when they come to me.” Reichs clearly remembers her very first forensic case. “I went with the police to the scene,” she says quietly. “A child had gone missing – I remember seeing it on the news. There was a thunderstorm and she was only five years old and I remember wondering about her being out there in this horrible storm. About three months later some little bones were found out in the woods near Charlotte, North Carolina. “I went out there with the homicide detective and the skeleton was scattered and some of it was missing. I

analysed the bones and they belonged to that little girl. But the case was never solved. The police think they know who did it and he has been convicted of other child homicides but they’ve never been able to tie him to this one.” When she isn’t solving forensic cases, Reichs writes her bestselling crime novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. After a brief trip to Melbourne to promote her latest book, Reichs will spend long hours finishing the first draft of her next book, Bones Never Lie. And then there’s the TV series, Bones, in its ninth season. “I was talking to Tess Gerritsen earlier this year about Rizzoli & Isles – the TV series based on her crime novels. She doesn’t get involved in the show – she has an ‘I cash the cheques and don’t bother me’ approach. I’m a control freak. I read every script and vet them for scientific accuracy,” says Reichs. Reich’s writing career began with Deja Dead in 1997. She uses her forensic background and some of her crime-solving experiences as inspiration for her complex plots, twisted characters and a lead character that is a recovering alcoholic with a sharp mind and a tinder-dry sense of humour. She decided to write Deja Dead when she faced hefty university fees for her three children – daughters Kerry and Courtney, and son Brendan. She co-authors a crime series for young readers with Brendan called the Virals series. “My kids were moving towards university, which can be pricey!” she says grimacing. “So I thought maybe I

unearthing the truth – even if it takes years. “The cases that come back to you are the ones that don’t get resolved, like the child I’ve had for 23 years in my lab in Quebec,” she says. The bones were found in a plastic sack in a ravine by a highway. They belonged to a child of five or six who’d suffered some cranial trauma. Reichs’ instinct told her the child hadn’t died recently and that the bones had spent time somewhere else. For years the case featured on Canada’s unsolved. “Then I was doing a book tour in New Brunswick and I was interviewed on a radio program and I talked about this case. Someone heard that interview and phoned the police and said they could explain where the bones came from,” says Reichs. “The caller had been 12 at the time and he and his friend were on their bikes and saw a backhoe digging a grave in a cemetery. They saw bones flying out and thought it would be funny to collect them and put them in the sandbox at school, so little kids would find them and get freaked out. “But they then felt bad about that, collected the bones again, put them in a plastic sack and threw them into the ravine. So we finally felt we knew where the bones had come from but we still didn’t know whom the kid was. “So I talked about that case again in another interview and a family came forward and said their brother was run over and killed by a car in 1963, when he was six. He was buried in that cemetery and we’re now waiting to get DNA from the family but we think we’ll finally identify that child. “So a real-life case will be solved because of one of my books and that will be a first. If we can get this little guy back to his family, that will be amazing.” The latest novel, Bones of the Lost, is again inspired by Reichs’ real-life experiences. The book is partly based in Afghanistan, where she visited US troops in 2011, and in it she blends her impressions of the country with another old case involving the suspicious shooting death of a police officer.

the bone can make a little money on the side. I had a colleague who wrote western romances. I read one of them and in one page the heroine’s heart leapt, it burst, it filled and I thought we were going to need a cardiac unit! I thought, ‘I can do better than this’. “It took me two years to write the first book because I was teaching and commuting from the Carolinas to Quebec to do my forensic work. I’d get up at 6am and write for a couple of hours and write at weekends.”

R

eichs didn’t tell anyone she was writing a novel apart from her family. When it was finished one of her children knew someone who knew someone who knew a junior editor in a publishing house and Reichs’ first manuscript was dispatched. “This poor woman got word that the boyfriend of a friend of a friend of a friend’s mother’s first novel is coming her way,” says Reichs, rolling her eyes. “She later told me she took the first few chapters home with her that weekend and was already composing the kind rejection letter in her head. But she read those chapters and went back to her office to get the rest of the manuscript to finish it. I had an offer within a couple of weeks. It was timing. It was the mid-1990s. Forensics was in the air and then became a huge wave.” While cases are neatly tied up in the last pages of her novels, in the real world not every case comes to a conclusion. But forensics has a strange way of

“I was in Afghanistan with four other writers, including Mark Bowden, who wrote Black Hawk Down. It was an interesting experience to sit next to Mark in full body armour and fly around these mountain valleys in a Black Hawk. I kept looking at him and asking, ‘Are we good? Are we good? If you’re calm, I’m calm.” Asked what forensic cases she’d like to have worked on, Reichs admits she’s envious of colleagues who helped identify the remains of the Russian Imperial Romanov family. “And I would have loved to have worked on the recent discovery of Richard III in the car park in England,” she adds. Despite a busy writing schedule and her TV commitments, Reichs happily sheds her bone whisperer mantle when at her beach house with her three children, four grandchildren and husband of 45 years, Paul. “I unashamedly bought the beach house as a magnet for the kids. I love spending time there, going out to dinner or to the movies or the symphony,” she says. “And I’m also happy writing in my study but I have to close the door and have quiet. My family have always been very good when I’m writing. When I was working on the first book there was a lot of eye-rolling and some tongue in cheek comments – ‘Sssshhh, mum’s working on her novel’. They don’t say that so much any more!” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au We WelCome your feedbaCk @

Prosecco

Prosecco is a grape, not a region. That’s why the wineries of Victoria’s King Valley, where it has found an excellent home, can label their wines as prosecco. Prosecco’s roots are in Italy’s north-east near Veneto. The best examples come from around Valdobbiadene. Rather than undergoing a secondary fermentation in the bottle to develop its bubbles, Prosecco is also a grape that benefits from a different type of carbonation, the

Wines such as Freixenet, Cordoníu and Segura Viudas can be found at the major chain stores for less than $20, and are excellent, affordable alternatives to Champagne.

A host of other old-world countries produce sparkling wines, particularly in eastern Europe, although you’re unlikely to find many in Australia. Hungary produces pezsgo, while sparkling has been made since the 1800s in Romania. The nations of the former Soviet Union are fond of Sovetskoye Shampanskoye, a sparkling wine made in Belarus, Moldova, Russia and the Ukraine. Britain produces 2 million bottles of sparkling a year in its south-east, where soils and climate are similar to those found in Champagne. Many Champagne houses, including G.H. Mumm and Bollinger, have Germanic origins and Germany’s sparkling is sekt – the 1919 Treaty of Versailles forbade Germany using the term Champagne. \

(DARRIAN TRAYNOR)

n Croatian, the word dobra means good. This is handy trivia to know given the chef behind new Balkan diner Brutale is one Daniel (“God is my judge”) George (“earth-worker”) Dobra. You might remember him from Brix, the high-concept diner that briefly flared then fizzled in Fitzroy. At his new digs in the CBD’s Corrs Lane, he’s ditched the schtick of baby veg and edible flowers for the time-honoured tastes of eastern Europe. Dumplings, cabbage rolls, roast meats, industrial quantities of garlic. All washed down with what may be Melbourne’s most extensive offering of rakia, the preferred palliative of all those nations that once sheltered under the dark umbrella of Yugoslavia. Reading through the list of regional firewaters, it strikes me this is one of the few places you’ll ever see all those states – Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, etc – coexisting so peacefully. There are wines, too. Exotic regional drops such as the Croatian Krauthaker or an Istrian merlot-terrano blend sit alongside affordably priced local and New Zealand bottles. Craft beers from Bosnia, Germany, Belgium, Spain and beyond round out the booze offerings. To assist in navigating the unfamiliar Balkan flavours I’ve enlisted my Macedonian mate, whose mother makes some of the finest sarma (cabbage rolls) and roast lamb in Melbourne. The stakes are high. Once inside this restaurant, hidden between Bourke and Lonsdale, it’s easy to pretend you’re not in Melbourne. Booth seats and dim lights, frenzied folk music (I swear they just played Hava Nagila) and even the studded disco ball over the bar suggest some sort of subversive cabaret, an image reinforced by ominous artworks featuring animal heads on human bodies. Shamanism meets surrealism, with a dash of ancient Egypt. No idea what it all means, but I’m up for it. The menu, read by lamplight shaded with old combat helmets, is a best-of-Balkan affair, from roasted peppers and svinja (cured meats) to spit-roasted pork and Dobra’s dad’s goulash. Our waiter, enthusiastic and well versed in the kitchen canon, suggests we order five to six dishes, or go the Dobra Family Banquet. How much food is that? “There’s quite a bit,” he concedes. “You definitely won’t leave hungry. But it’s manageable.” We opt instead to DIY, starting with a mound of sandy-brown fried pickerels (whitebait) served with lemon and a mayo infused with Dobra’s special spice mix. The mayo is pleasant; there just needs to be more of it to keep the whitebait moist and interesting. Without it, the fish is too dry and too salty. Good drinking food, sure, but not a refined entrée. The Macedonian wants to try the cevapi with ajvar – charcoal-grilled “naked” sausages made from beef, pork and veal that come with lemon, raw white onion and a traditional red pepper relish. The snags have appealing char stripes on the outside; take a bite and the barbecued juices dribble down the chin. Good times. The Macedonian eats in rapt silence, apparently transported back to a childhood far, far away. The lamb, we’re told, is mouthwatering. It’s roasted in the peka, a Croatian wood-fired oven, at 400–450 degrees, with rosemary and bay leaves, spring onions and shallots.

dine out

Cevapi With ajvaR

The bay gives the succulent meat a punchy herbal hit, and it’s lovely, but we’re not absolutely convinced it’s as good as a certain suburban matriarch’s. The shopska is a tad too chilled but otherwise terrific. It’s Eastern Europe’s answer to the Greek salad, rendered here as a brilliantly fresh medley of cucumber, tomato, capsicum, fresh ricotta-like cheese made on site, all swimming in a zinging vinaigrette. Dobra stuffs his sarma with beef, smoked ham and a smidge of rice and serves them on creamed potato and tomato. It’s hard to gauge the exact ingredients because the smoky pork overwhelms all. You’ll never catch me complaining about pork but, in this battle of the Balkans, the Macedonian’s mum triumphs. Her sarmas are sublime. Desserts are not a strong suit – Neapolitan ice-cream (sold out), doughnuts and baked pastries – but this is a blessing as we’re stuffed. It’s 9.30pm, and Brutale’s inner bohemian is out to play. The bar is a blur of alcoholic activity. The couple behind us are arm-wrestling. An older guy to our left is getting his gangster on in shaded glasses, black shirt, black trilby. He’s drinking merlot on ice. You can’t fake cool like that. Meanwhile Dobra is clapping like a flamenco artist at the pass, flanked by photos of family members. Looks like he’ll be at it for a while yet. Brutale’s late menu is available until midnight, and these folks don’t look like they’re going anywhere in a hurry. And why would they? The party’s right here. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au

WALLPAPER BRINGS INDIVIDUAL STYLE TO THE HOME

What’s on \ moonee valley

With 15 years experience in home decoration and design and an RMIT design award Kris Traeger is well qualified to help with decorating advice.

What’s the latest in wallpaper? “The latest wallpaper looks include highly textural papers which include timber, stone, grassweave and industrial finishes such as copper and stainless steel. We are also seeing new stripes, damasks, florals and graphic prints.” Does wallpaper suit some homes more than others? “Every home tends to have at least one spot suitable for wallpaper. Whether it is an older home which needs new life or a brand new home requiring some instant personality, we can help you find the right paper for your living space. Even small apartments can benefit from wallpaper and choosing the right paper will add interest and even visually extend the space, avoiding a ‘boxed in’ feeling. “ Just how big is your range at Bristol? “Here at Bristol we offer one of the biggest wallpaper ranges in Melbourne, offering over 7000 designs from the traditional to the contemporary and catering to all budgets. We carry books which include Cole& Son, Designers Guild, Ralph Lauren, Eco, Six Hands, James Dunlop, Catherine Martin, Nina Campbell, Osborne & Little, Christian Lacoix, Ronald Redding, Rosemont ,Vision and many more.” With such a huge range available how do people find the right paper? “Understanding that choosing wallpaper relies on personal taste I can help narrow down a customer’s search while suggesting designs and co-ordinating paint colours all done in a free 30 minute in-store consultation. If required there is also a competitively priced in-home consultation service. This may cover areas such as furniture layout, advice on soft furnishings and lighting ideas to make the most of your new paint and wallpaper scheme. “

So are a lot of people considering wallpaper as an option over paint alone? “Some people come into our store with a preconceived idea of wallpaper, perhaps remembering an old floral wallpaper that was difficult to remove, but once they’ve seen our books and discovered how much more user- friendly wallpaper has become they soon become wallpaper converts. There are also many customers who are visiting display homes or looking at home decorating magazines and wanting to create a similar look in their own homes using wallpaper.”

Has wallpaper become popular again? “It certainly has. Wallpaper has evolved enormously in the past decade and continues to amaze people who come into our Bristol Decorator store in Essendon. The patterns, textures and variety just keeps on growing. In addition to this, people are pleasantly surprised by how easy installation and removal has become. Wallpaper does just so much more for a room than paint colour alone, by instantly personalising a space and creating a strong anchor point for furnishings.”

Gatsby and I thought Joel Edgerton was superb as a baddie.

inger, songwriter and actress Wendy Stapleton lives in the family home of her grandparents who came to Moonee Ponds in 1920, so her Valley roots are deep. Right now, she’s performing as Dusty Springfield, but she’s often at the mike at local haunts such as Oscar’s of Essendon and Hardimans Hotel in Kensington.

What change would you like to see in your patch? The current proposal for development of Moonee Valley racecourse. It will have a dreadful impact if 3000 more residents need parking space and have their cars on the roads. I think it’s based on outright greed and it will become a big ghetto in the future. It’s probably a foregone conclusion that it will go ahead, but I at least hope there can be compromises and that it won’t be as ludicrous as first proposed.

What’s your favourite eatery and place to get a coffee? I often go to a gym with my sister-in-law and friends and we naughtily ditch the water post-workout and head to 20 Young Street Cafe where I’ll have a black coffee with a dash of cold milk – but I’m mostly a tea drinker. I go there for brekky as well. For dinner, I like Escagrill for great seafood and steaks, and Khao San Road and Yim Yam for delicious Thai food – they’re all on Mount Alexander Road. I like my Thai food spicy and my favourite dish is whole snapper. (supplied)

What would you never like to see changed? Our wonderful Edwardian and California bungalow homes dotted throughout the Valley. New buildings need to be at least sympathetic to our heritage streetscape.

Where do you go to snag a clothes bargain? Clothes are not really my thing – if I’m not on stage I’m in a pair of old jeans. But I always go to Impulse Menswear in Puckle Street to buy my husband’s clothes and I have seven nephews who also score stuff from Impulse for birthdays and such. The store has been around for years and it always comes up trumps. \

Profile \ the cup’s just another day at the races to ‘patto’, writes Robert fedele

M

ilestones mean diddly squat to Flemington’s straightshooting clerk of the course, John ‘Patto’ Patterson. The enduring racetrack figure hardly bats an eye when told he will lead in his 43rd Melbourne Cup winner next Tuesday. “It’s just another day at the races,” shrugs Patto. “There’s a lot more hype and pressure on everybody, but I don’t get hyped up. When you let things like that get to you that’s when things go wrong.” Patto led in his first Cup winner, Rain Lover, in 1969 and has missed just one between then and now. That’s when he was grounded in hospital with a knee reconstruction in 1977 as Gold and Black strolled home by a length. His historic stables remain in good nick out the back of the family home in Crown Street, less than a furlong from the track of fairytales. If you’re up early enough you might spot the renowned horse breaker driving his horse and cart around the back streets of Flemington. While the world around him has changed, Patto remains an old-school horseman with a wit as quick as a nippy two-year-old. “Righto, you’ll talk and I’ll answer you,” he barks when the Weekly visits. “You can follow and talk to me.” Patto came to Flemington aged 14 to try his luck as a jockey. He made an extra quid working as a casual drover at the Newmarket saleyards when the area was a bustling hub of activity. Patto never made it as a hoop and instead was lured into becoming a clerk. “I dunno, they must’ve run out of ’em,” he jokes. “I was asked

They want to continue their hobbies and friendship groups. Retirement villages today are very much geared towards independent living.” and retirement villages provide excellent company on the With strict rules governing the way retirement villages terms you want,” says Mary Wood, executive director of the and communities operate, Wood says residents choosing a Retirement Living Council. retirement property should ask themselves several questions to “You are not in someone’s pocket and you can come and go help them make the right choice for their lifestyle now and in as you like, but equally there are people around to help you and years to come. to talk to when you want that.” “Retirement villages range from quite basic, with About 180,000 Australians live in about 2000 good-quality housing but more limited services, to retirement villages across the country. In Victoria higher end with luxuries like pools, spas, lawn bowls online » last year, 35 applications were made to build and movie theatres, and everything in between,” The retirement-style communities. In the first nine Wood says. questions months of this year that number stood at 58. “I think baby boomers want more agency you need to With more Victorians choosing retirement and and control over the ways in which they age so ask lifestyle communities for the over-55s, it’s important retirement villages will offer more and more diversity, to find a village that suits your lifestyle, interests and services and locations. If you’re considering this move, expectations. Wood says there are many stereotypes about check out a few villages and see what the atmosphere is retirement communities that are vastly out of date. like. Talk to residents living there about their experiences and “These places attract aged pensioners, self-funded retirees, whether they enjoy living there and why.” couples, people who live by themselves, outgoing people who Wood says there is no golden rule about the right time to are involved in everything on offer and others who dip in and look at retirement living.

Usually, they don’t want a radical too many rooms to dust and the garden is too big,” she says. departure from life as they knew it before they retired. “When you can see that you will start to need help with

Keeping up standards On August 1, the Lifemark Village Scheme was launched. The retirement living accreditation scheme is voluntary and has 26 standards affecting village life, including safety, support, lifestyle and regulations. The aim of the Lifemark accreditation process is to improve the quality of retirement villages and how they operate. An independent auditing and certification organisation conducts the accreditation audits and issues the Lifemark stamp. Accreditation lasts for three years. Auditors also do a surveillance audit 18 months after the initial certification to ensure standards are maintained. “Lifemark goes well beyond an operator’s legal obligations. Older Australians can trust that a Lifemark village is well governed, comfortable and safe,” Wood says.

all this, that can be the time to do your research. The more research you can do early on, the better your choice will be. The residents I’ve met say their only regret is that they didn’t make the move a little earlier.” \ » The Retirement Living Council is the peak body for the retirement industry in Australia. Mary Wood keeps a close eye on the growing number of retirement communities.

A

little over a decade ago Volkswagen’s reborn Beetle started a spate of retro cars. The Mini, Chrysler’s PT Cruiser and Citroen’s C3 all followed, and this led a prominent American car designer to forecast the big problem with retro cars; when it’s time to update how do you facelift a retro design? Mini, by far the most successful of the bunch, keeps things fresh with lots of variations on the original theme, to the beetle the point where there’s now even a is a nice Mini SUV. thing to The sadly underpowered PT drive Cruiser faded away, the C3 bumps along at a few sales a month and, after a disappointing initial response, Volkswagen is giving the Beetle another go. It’s bigger than the first retro Beetle with a longer roofline that’s higher at the rear, a design that’s far less sympathetic to the original 1940s VW but allowing your actual people to ride up back without detaching their heads. It has also proved beneficial for luggage space, which is now on par with many Even with DSG the Beetle is a nice thing to small hatchbacks. drive. It handles surprisingly well and Mind you, the Beetle costs a lot more than makes even challenging corners easy. It goes most small hatchbacks.

thumbs up handling, ride, body integrity.

The surprising thing is that it rides so well. The interior is comfortable and nicely finished, with extensive metal trim carrying the exterior colour. It may be greatly improved and thus of wider appeal, but with its looks and premium pricing the Beetle will always be a niche car. And I can’t help thinking that, Minis notwithstanding, the retro thing is done now. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

ASCOT VALE \ 102 EPSOM ROAD

T

here’s a name for the gangs that loiter around Ailsa Street: Architecture students. They’re looking for art deco style, and some of Melbourne’s best examples are to be found in this colourful, rose-laden street, 11 of whose houses are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Against so much moderne elegance, this block-fronted Edwardian more than holds its own. Built about 1911, it is one of the oldest in the street that was carved out of the 1840s Ailsa Estate in 1907. But age cannot weary it, for this house has re-emerged as a thoroughly modern beauty with everything an active, sociable family could desire. The current owners bought the house in 2000, extended it in 2001 and have since restored its many original details. There are three bedrooms, a magnificent formal living room and, at the rear, a sunny, open-plan kitchen and living area with a separate dining room that opens to a deck. The walls, coloured delicate mushroom beige with ivory trims, contrast with the dark, Japanese-lacquered Baltic pine floor. Plantation shutters line the sash windows, and bifold doors invite air and sunshine into the casual living zone. Against this fresh palette, the Edwardian features – leadlights, picture rails, tiled open fireplaces – look all the more glorious. The house opens with a return verandah and a large, useable garden with roses and a view of the gardens across the road. The front door, flanked by rosebud leadlight panels and a fanlight, leads to an arched central hall. Here is where the owner begins her amusing chronology of chandeliers. An admirer of Egyptian Asfour crystal, she has decked the hall with Victorian-style chandeliers and the bedrooms with a more streamlined variety. The one in the study – chrome with a black shade – harks to art deco. By the time we reach the dining room, the chandelier has evolved into a slinky glass cylinder. Both front bedrooms have ornate cornices and sash windows, and the main has a walk-in wardrobe and a fully tiled porcelain en suite with a shower, Rogerseller tapware and an oval basin atop a stone cabinet. The third bedroom, a compact double, has a built-in wardrobe. There’s a possible fourth bedroom, currently a study. It has waist-high timber panelling and an open fireplace tiled in dark green with yellow floral details. The bedrooms are served by a porcelain bathroom with a shower, a claw-foot bath and a stone-topped cabinet with soft-closing drawers. The splendid heart of the house is the parlour, which, with its tiled art nouveau-style fireplace and leadlight verandah door, is grand yet cosy. In summer, however, the rear lounge is where the action is likely to be. The lounge has bifold and french doors leading to the deck, making this sunny spot ideal for entertaining. The dining room also opens to the deck, which has steps down to the brick-paved rear yard and carport. The kitchen, smart in Kashmir White granite and timber cabinetry, has a 900-millimetre stainless-steel Ilve stove, a Miele coffee machine and a Panasonic microwave. French doors lead to the side courtyard, where a park bench awaits. Although pleasantly peaceful, Ailsa Street is within a few steps of Mount Alexander Road’s shops and tram, Flemington Primary School and the Sunday farmers’ market at Mount Alexander College – a particular favourite with this community-minded family. \ ALISON BARCLAY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

It’s gorgeous, it’s renovated, it’s affordable. This Ascot Vale house has the home-buyers’ trifecta. Keen punters might back this house for its proximity to Flemington racecourse but the more considered types will back the quality renovation, convenient location and spacious interior. Built c1895, the house was renovated six years ago and repainted in the past six months. There are three bedrooms (two with fireplaces), including an upstairs bedroom with views over the surrounding suburbs. One of the ground-level bedrooms has a private deck. The bathroom combines a bath, double shower and European laundry. The open-plan kitchen/living/dining area at the rear is a show-stopper. Baltic pine floorboards contrast well with modern fittings and fixtures, including stainless-steel European appliances. Outside, step down to a covered deck with room for a dining setting and barbecue. Built-in seating adds convenience. Step down to the landscaped lawn and down again to two undercover parking spaces. \ JAN FISHER

A mixed zoning pocket provides the location for this refurbished Victorian residence. Going by the name of Marwick Cottage, the semi-detached block-fronted house presents with timber fretwork over the granite-paved verandah. Inside, the hallway has pendant light fittings, original floorboards, a hat rack and walls painted maroon below the dado rail. Two bedrooms and a bathroom are to the right of the hall; both bedrooms are carpeted and have folding blinds and built-in wardrobes, and the bathroom is colourfully contemporised. The living room has original floorboards, pressed-metal ceilings, two-toned walls and a gas heater under a lovely timber mantel. Black-and-white floor tiles lend a retro edge to the connected kitchen and dining area, but appliances are thoroughly modern. The north-facing backyard complements the interior with a partially covered deck, neat lawn and a shed. Macaulay station and village-style shops are a short walk, and the city can be reached on foot. \ KAY KEIGHERY

ABERFELDIE \ 3 BEATRICE AVENUE Visitors to this deceptively dainty Edwardian-style house have been wondering about its history. Here’s the CV: It has just been built. More to come! The two-storey weatherboard stands high on the western side of Aberfeldie Hill, a minute’s walk from the bus stop, and has a view across parklands to St Bernard’s College. It looks petite but is family-sized, with five double bedrooms and a capacious living area that opens east to a covered deck and barbecue kitchen. And although modern, all details – leadlights, sash windows, high skirting boards and triple cornices – have been finished with old-fashioned craftsmanship. The ground floor has oak floorboards and an arched central hall, off which open the study, laundry, central bathroom and two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and fully tiled en suite with a Lanark spa. At the rear, the open-plan living area has a Heat & Glo gas log fireplace and bifold doors to the deck. The kitchen is impressive in black granite and white cabinetry, and has a 900-millimetre stainless-steel Ilve stove, Miele dishwasher and butler’s pantry. On the carpeted first floor, three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes share a retreat and two tiled bathrooms. Ducted heating and cooling, data cabling, video intercom, a tandem garage and a gated driveway ensure convenience. \ ALISON BARCLAY

Investors and first-home buyers will be attracted to this affordable first-floor apartment. It has an open and bright aspect for enjoying the large, period houses that are common in this street. The solid-brick, late-1960s block has been fully renovated and updated, with a rendered façade in chocolate and cream tones. The small corner development has a contemporary appearance with the benefit of an old-school solidity. An open-plan kitchen, meals and living area on entry has floating floorboards, a neutral palette and a bright, north-facing view. A split-system provides heating and cooling. The kitchen has been updated with stainless-steel Smeg appliances and Caesarstone benchtops. Both bedrooms are carpeted and have full-height mirrored built-in wardrobes. One is north-facing while the other has a private, tree-top aspect. The compact bathroom has a shower-over-bath and laundry facilities. Chocolate-coloured floor tiles continue the contemporary look. At the end of the block, this apartment also has the benefit of having only one party wall. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

STRATHMORE \ 236 WOODLAND STREET There is something very satisfying about the feel of a smooth, solid-timber banister as one ascends the dim centre of an old house. This c1934 brick Californian bungalow, with a classic gabled façade, is opposite Woodlands Park, and the elevated block of more than 1150 square metres is only part of the extravagance to be found here. Original period features are evocative of another era and, like the disused tennis court at the rear of the block, they could be reinvigorated. The front of the house includes a wide entry hall, formal lounge and dining rooms and a main bedroom. Polished floors, high ceilings, bay windows with stained-glass detailing, ceiling roses and cornices create spectacular formal spaces. Dark timber frames bring a gravitas to otherwise neutral interiors, especially in the wood-panelled staircase with timber balusters carved in an art-nouveau motif. The bevelled glass doors that introduce each of these rooms are a highlight. Various updates were executed in the late 1950s when the current vendor moved in. One downstairs bathroom is a recent addition and has a period feel. An informal kitchen and meals area is a more relaxed and functional space with a gas log fireplace. Three bedrooms and a third bathroom are upstairs. \ EMMA HOUGHTON
