my health prospects must be on par with a two-pack-a-day smoker! In an effort to stop the rot, earlier this year I signed up for Sam Wood’s online fitness program, which promises to get you in tip-top shape with just 28 minutes of exercise a day – all in the comfort of your own home. And so I joined the digital fitness revolution that has millions of us sweating along with online personal trainers and gulping green smoothies with Instagram fitspo (that’s fitness inspiration) stars. It’s a global phenomenon that has turned digitally savvy health gurus into instant celebrities, with millions of followers and lucrative marketing deals. In this week’s special Wellness edition, we meet some of Melbourne’s home-grown fitspo superstars and check out the latest health trends sweeping the city. Happy (and healthy) reading. ●

Rachelle Unreich meets Melbourne’s celebrity wellness warriors

M

ove over, foodies. A new social trend has taken over. Fitness inspiration or #Fitspo Instagrammers are the new celebs of social media, boasting millions of followers who hang on their every green smoothie bowl or downward dog pose. Adelaide-based personal trainer turned fitsposuper star Kayla Itsines, who has 5.5 million Instagram followers, sells out boot camps around the world (New York

recently) and presides over a fitness empire that includes her Bikini Body Guide app, e-books and a range of hot-pink “Kayla” weights, sweat towels and sundry fitness accessories. “It is a complete phenomenon,” says Jules Lund, founder of TRIBE, an app that connects brands and “influencers”. “First, we saw the rise of celebrity chefs; now it’s fitspo role models and a fantastic wave of health education. The more you see people on social media being healthy

and living an outdoor life, the better it is.” The reason this industry has exploded on Instagram and Snapchat, says Jules, is because “what you’re watching, over thousands of posts, is their lifestyle. It’s not like seeing a celebrity on the front page of a glossy magazine who’s gone hard for three months because they’re preparing for a film. Instead, you see a daily reminder of these people living a consistently healthy lifestyle across food, fitness and well-being”.

In many ways, it echoes the zeitgeist, too. “It’s also about female empowerment,” says Jules. “Not being wafer-thin but strong, powerful, in control. You see Michelle Payne winning the Melbourne Cup, you see Ronda Rousey and Holly Holm, the fastest-growing female sports stars … And social media is dominated by females.” We asked three of Melbourne’s most popular fitspo stars about fitness and fame. ● editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

LAURA HENSHAW

ELLIOTT MAE DREW

L

W

aura Henshaw is your typical girl next door – if the girl next door towers over the fence (she’s 178 centimetres) and does modelling gigs when she’s not studying law. Now 23, Laura started a blog two years ago when she was modelling in Milan and wanted to be productive with her down time. Before long, she’d garnered fans who admired her healthy proportions and responded to her message of moderation. For Laura, that means eating three healthy meals and two snacks a day based on a wholefoods diet, with very little processed food (dark chocolate is allowed and even hot chips occasionally!) She works out six times a week, mixing workouts with running – a stress reliever for her – functional training, boxing and high interval training. She wasn’t always so wedded to moderation. When modelling overseas, Laura dropped six kilos in her quest to secure jobs. (One agent suggested she just have a cup of tea for dinner.) But soon she took stock of the pressures. As she says, “On my own Instagram account [which has nearly 90,000 followers], I follow sports people, athletes, Richard Branson. They’re my inspiration. I don’t really follow many Victoria’s Secret models.” Now she has teamed up with her best friend, model Steph Claire Smith, to develop an e-cookbook, Keep It Clean. They have also started a platform, Keep It Cleaner, which offers a $7.99 monthly subscription for simple recipes, exercises and a video. Laura’s Instagram account is about keeping things unadorned. “I don’t mind if there are photos of me that aren’t beautiful, because that’s what I sometimes look like. “My worst nightmare is portraying a life that’s unachievable and out of reach for girls.” ● 6 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ SEPTEMBER 7, 2016

hen personal trainer El Drew opened her Instagram account, she had low expectations. “I thought I might get 500 followers, who knows?” Make that 131,000 to date. Instead of just watching the numbers rise, El got serious and turned it into a second job. “I realised, ‘I’m reaching people all around the world almost unintentionally; I can turn this into a business and put more thought into my content’.” Her account, @fit_with_el, is an eye-pleaser, with her lithe body doing impossible poses, a mix of healthful snacks and the occasional dog photo (she has a Rottweiler named Archie). Her profile has helped expand her business and heightened her appeal to marketers – “lots of activewear and protein powder companies” – although she says lately she has noticed a drop in the offers. “I’ve also started becoming more picky – I didn’t want to look like an Instagrammer who was constantly hounding people with products. At the start I was like, ‘This is cool, I can get a pair of [free] tights,’ but then I realised it’s not about showing people advertising. I want to show people how to work out.” Not all the perks have disappeared. “I scored a dream job with Active Escapes, an online company that runs fitness retreats in Bali, Hawaii and amazing tropical places. Now I’m in Bali for one week every year, hosting their fitness retreat.” Even though there are many fitspo types fighting for that online space, she says she has always found her peers and competitors to be “incredibly friendly and warm”. El offers customised workouts online, although she also has a personal training and boot camp business. “It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. I give people personalised plans so if they have an injury or setback, I tailor it to their fitness level and what they want to achieve. But there are cheaper guides for the 18-year-old who can’t afford that.” The upshot? “I feel quite lucky, because every day I get emails from all over the world, with people saying thank-you. It’s well rewarded – knowing you have such a positive impact.” ●


TULLY HUMPHREY

setting yourself up for success

T

1

Choose exercise that also helps you feel emotionally good. For Laura, that’s running, her stress reliever. For Tully, it’s yoxing – yoga and boxing.

2

Make it realistic or you won’t be able to stick to a plan. El says: “I don’t like extreme measures. I won’t say to a client, ‘You have to stop doing this’.”

3 4

Avoid processed foods. Laura admits they “affect my mood and energy”.

5

Reinvent your favourite recipes. Laura learnt to do this using substitutes: a mix of almond meal, spelt and coconut flour instead of wheat flour, Greek yoghurt instead of butter, rice malt syrup instead of sugar. ●

alk about a high achiever. At 28, Tully Humphrey has her own activewear label (Tully Lou), is behind a new hybrid form of exercise (boxing + yoga = Yoxing) and has taught a Bikram yoga class to One Direction’s Harry Styles. Not bad for a girl who survived anorexia and dropped out of school in year 10 to find a pathway to good health. Growing up in Kyneton, Tully says her childhood was “happy” but she suddenly became obsessed with food at 14. “Recovery took a good five years,” she says. Yoga, which she had embarked upon to lose weight, instead helped her to appreciate her body’s strength and ability. Three years ago, she began her Instagram account to showcase her activewear designs. “It took me a long time to recognise that people were following me because they wanted to know me more than the brand. When I write about still having bad days, people respond to me better than if it was a [photo] of me and my abs.” She hopes to inspire others, even though she concedes fitspo accounts can sometimes hurt those with poor body image, as much as they can help. She’s careful not to use models “who are super, super-skinny, because that’s not the message I am trying to send across. “It’s all about balance. I make healthy choices but I also drink – it’s not all superhealthy. I do have fun. I’ve still got to live!’’ But being in the social media eye isn’t all positive. “I’ve put up photos of a model before and had horrible comments from people. I will delete them, but sometimes you can get stuck in this dark place and go backwards. “That’s when I have to turn myself around and say, ‘These people that are commenting is not your [stuff], it’s their [stuff]’.” Tully has almost 54,000 Instagram followers, but says she tries not to focus on

Don’t obsess. As Tully says, “make healthy choices, but obsession is not healthy”.

figures. Still such numbers are a magnet for brands, which offer fitspo stars $150 to $1500 (or more) a post to promote their products. Tully can afford to turn down those opportunities because she generates an income from her active wear label and from speaking engagements. Long term, she hopes to finish a book she’s writing about her journey. “It will provide tools to get out of some of life’s challenges – such as eating disorders or a break-up. For a long time as a teenager, I thought I would never be normal again. I want readers to know there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.” ●

Judge on Australia’s Next Top Model Listen to your body and make time to give it what it needs. If it’s sleep, make time for it. If it’s exercise, make time for it and choose the best exercise for your body that day. When you are dehydrated, drink plenty of water and fuel your body with the best nourishment you can. My favourite is soup – comforting, tasty and healthy. ● (SUPPLIED)

I try and eat in moderation and I really try to balance out my meals. Obviously, I eat a lot of sweets, so I try and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner really cleanly. But on the weekends I love a little splurge! Every Sunday I have pizza and a bucket of ice-cream – they’re my go-to splurge foods. ●

Mum and dad have always made sure my brothers and I feel loved and important. I think if you have that reinforced growing up, when push comes to shove you are more likely to back and believe in yourself … I also have an incredibly sane husband who is a great sounding board. Having a life and family outside of work is very important. ●

I box to keep fit. I found a gym in North Melbourne that trains fighters and it has given me a focus and helped me in my business life, too. When I started boxing I was always on the front foot but my trainer told me to stay on the back foot, to control the opponent and move them around. I take those skills to work. In a meeting now, instead of having a preconceived mission I sit back a bit, duck and weave, take it all in and listen. ●

HOW DO THEY DO IT? ADAM GOODES

ANDY GRIFFITHS

I’m like anyone else – I get down and out sometimes. When I was playing professionally I sat down with our sports psychologist once a week for a debrief and that kept me level-headed. Now I talk to people who’ve been there for me for years. But sometimes you need to talk to someone who doesn’t know you – you need that bit of distance. If you’ve been feeling crappy for a couple of weeks, have a chat to someone to figure out why. There’s nothing wrong with saying, ‘I need a bit of help’. Guys need to break down that stereotype that it’s a sign of weakness. I put my hand up many times and don’t see myself as soft or weak for doing that. ●

I begin each day around 6am by spending an hour reading a book and drinking coffee, followed by 45 to 60 minutes of exercise – so my reading and exercise are locked away before other distractions get in the way. I do a different thing each day – high-intensity cardio sessions like swimming, running and cycling or strength training. Most days I incorporate stretching and/or yoga – the Sworkit app is great for this. On a good day I love a late afternoon walk. And I don’t drink coffee after 3pm. ●

Ask the wine guy

THE VINE

I want to get in shape for spring. Q Does it mean I have to give up wine altogether?

W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S

Maybe not altogether, but you’re A looking at between 110 and 300 calories for a glass of wine. Interestingly

Craggy Range Sophia 2014 (Hawke’s Bay) $105; 13.5%

it’s the alcohol that contains most of the calories – almost twice the calories of any sugar that may be present in the wine. If you’re a sucker for a sticky or have a penchant for port, you’ll need to give them up. If you’re going to have a glass of wine, make it a good one that will drink well over a few days or keep the bottle fresh with Winesave, a can of argon gas that keeps the wine from oxidising. ● GOT A QUESTION?

It drank well immediately, but this took three days to really hit its straps, revealing a bouquet of dark berries, redcurrants, bay and pencil-scented oak. It’s dense and concentrated, but balanced and really well composed – it’s a rock-star wine, but not showy. Tannins are excellent, structure really good and there’s a sweet vanilla oak character on the impressive finish. ● Enjoy with \ Lamb and artichoke ragu

WE LOVE

Foxeys Hangout Shiraz 2015 (Mornington Peninsula) $45; 13.5%

Tibooburra Wines Solitude Shiraz 2015 (Yarra Valley) $30; 13%

If you haven’t been down to Foxeys’ restaurant and cellar door, do yourself a favour. I’ve long been a fan of this shiraz. It’s always spicy and perfumed, with dark cherry and plum flavours. It is on top form this year – there’s all of that plus a bright, fresh acid, fine tannins and loads of energy. It’s concentrated, juicy and delicious. ●

This is a perfumed, funky beast and one that I adored drinking over three nights. Satin-smooth, this is a complex cool-climate shiraz that’s filled with stalky whole-bunch perfume, pepper and spice, plus concentrated blue fruits and cherry flavours. Fresh and bright, it finishes with a burst of perfumed flavour. ●

Enjoy with \ Spicy char-grilled quail

Enjoy with \ Peking duck and pancakes

De Bortoli Estate Grown Chardonnay 2015 (Yarra Valley) $25; 12.5% Made from several parcels of chardonnay at Dixons Creek, this is delightfully delicate chardonnay – fine-boned and structured. It smells teriffic, with white blossom, peach and gentle spice aromas. The mineral-laced acid and chalky tannins support stonefruit, citrus and spice flavours. ● Enjoy with \ Brie de Meaux

ALMOND SNICKERS DOUGHNUTS

t’s 2016. Aliens descend upon Earth in search of “life”. They poke at our activated nuts, marvel at coconut’s chameleonic properties, try to pronounce quinoa. Then leave with a NutriBullet and some chia seeds, ne’er to return. Alien or no, it’s not easy to find a nutrition bowl worth coming back for in this town. What I like about LBSS is their inclusive approach to eating. Zoned dining rooms with cushioned seats ensure a cosy comfort, while their Little, Big, Sugar, Salt menu helps diners pick quickly, be it sugar-quitting snack or big, bold Breakfast for Juan. They offer Eggs with Friends, a per-head “polyamorous” smorgasbord of “good for you” food and filter coffee. A sign of a cafe that continues to evolve with how we like to eat, but doesn’t jump on every coloured latte bandwagon. They serve pillowy, chai-spiced pancakes that are gluten-free. Roasted Kumara (aka sweet potato) replaces bread on This One because it tastes better. Kombucha is made from scratch using their own tea blends, as are the kimchi and peanut butter. But what LBSS does best is create a space where everyone feels empowered to eat well and feel good. After all, isn’t that what life is about? ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

WE LOVE …

EATING \ I’m beginning to wish I hadn’t discovered Loving Earth Salted Caramel “wholefood chocolate”, because it’s becoming a pack-a-day obsession. The fact that it’s made from cacao butter, coconut nectar and “raw organic cashews” tells me they omitted one critical ingredient from their list: sorcery. ● COOKING \ I clipped Teresa Cutter’s kale pie out of Sunday Sunday Life Life magazine a few weeks back and it’s become a go-to! It’s a big load of greens, sweated down, with just enough egg to combine, then baked for longer than you’d think so everything’s super-crispy. It’s like a fritter/green juice hybrid. The melty feta cheese makes it. ● READING \ Simon Bajada’s Nordic Light (Hardie Grant, $50) is not only an album of stunning Scandinavian landscapes, it’s also terrific for those looking to lift their vegetable game. There’s an entire section on “food in bowls”, which won me over instantly. I’ve scored you some recipes, which you’ll find online. ●

LOTS OF SPACE

WATCHING \ Bondi Harvest have managed to turn Bondi into a global phenomenon with their online cooking series centred on wholefood cooking and a clean-living lifestyle. Warning: a LOT of avocado was harmed in the making of these videos. ●

ew dancers can claim to have had the impact of ballet legend Vaslav Nijinsky. An extraordinary performer and a groundbreaking choreographer, the Russian-Polish dancer has a legacy all the more impressive considering he was on stage for a mere 10 years. It’s this remarkable legacy that powers the Australian Ballet’s new production of Nijinsky from American choreographer John Neumeier. “I think he really changed the face of ballet in the 20th century,� says David McAllister, the company’s artistic director. “At that time, the ballerina was in charge. Then Nijinsky arrived and he turned people’s opinions towards male dancers. Everyone who came after him would always be called the new Nijinsky. He was the benchmark for what a male ballet star was.� David says attempting to recreate the work of

such a legendary artist might be seen as asking for trouble. As such, Nijinsky takes a different approach, using seven dancers including Kevin Jackson to portray different aspects of the performer. It also refuses to borrow from the past. Rather than cribbing from Nijinsky’s works, it employs new choreography to evoke his memory. “The genius of the ballet is it isn’t trying to recreate Nijinsky at all, it’s just trying to give the audience a taste of the profound impact he had on the world,� David says. “It’s not a story ballet and not a biography ballet. John says it’s about going to the soul of the artist, a choreographic poem about his life. In the mix of his life, you see the evolution of ballet in the 20th century.� While the piece resists the temptation to offer a simple retelling of Nijinsky’s somewhat tragic tale – he retired from performing after a nervous breakdown at the tender age of 29 – David says the audience should come prepared for an emotional night at the theatre. “We haven’t got through a rehearsal without the whole company reaching for the Kleenex. It’s a towering emotional work, the sort of dance theatre people sometimes don’t often associate with ballet. People who think ballet’s not for them should give Nijinsky a try.� �

I’m Supposed To Protect You From All This, by Nadja Spiegelman » $32.99 (Text Publishing) textpublishing.com.au

To say graphic novelist Nadja Spiegelman had an unusual childhood is to experiment with the art of extreme understatement. Her famous father Art wrote Maus and her mother was the French-born art director for the New Yorker Yorker. Nadja grew up as literary royalty, flitting between the US and mum Francoise Mouly’s family in Paris. Mum is the real star of this captivating memoir, an eccentric kicking against her own past – and repeating it. ●

The hunt is on for Melbourne’s most brilliant budding entrepreneur. The winner of TWR’s inaugural Startup Stars award will win a prize package worth more than $10,000.

Nominations have flooded in for our Startup Stars award. Check out the finalists at theweeklyreview.com.au/startupstars from September 12 and vote for the winner.

Who are they? Collingwood-based brothers Alex and Anthony Zaccaria have been working in the music and entertainment industry for years (Anthony as an artist manager and Alex as an artist manager and digital strategist), while the third co-founder, Nick Humphreys, has a background in illustration and design.

management, digital marketing and design, creative services and branding. Bolster Labs – the “ideas factory where nothing is off limits” – is their latest venture, and this is where Linktree was born four months ago. The app hasn’t officially been launched but is already being used by the likes of Laneway Festival, Splendour in the Grass, Flume, Peking Duck, Courtney Barnett, and Groovin’ the Moo.

The inspiration “If something impedes our day or we think a process can be improved upon, or if something doesn’t exist for ourselves or a client, we build it,” says Nick. As artist managers, the trio were frustrated by having to change the link on their clients’ Instagram pages every time they wanted to, for example, promote a new video. “Our lead developer, Mikey, said he could build a prototype within a few hours,” says Alex. “Within that day the bare bones were there, and a day later Linktree was created.” The story so far Alex and Anthony met Nick seven years ago and connected over an obsession with music and innovation; last year they got together and founded Bolster, which comprises artist

And clients: we are very lucky to work with exciting and brave clients.” What we’ve learnt “How much work actually goes into building an app that’s accessible and user-friendly. We also learnt to be fearless and just dive in.” In five years’ time we’d like to be … “Doing what we’re doing but building bigger and better things – and have a big enough team so we can actually get some sleep.” ● JANE HONE » bolstermusic.com.au

GIVE IT A GO JANE HONE SEEKS SOME BALANCE

The promise A one-hour consultation that uses bio-feedback to identify my body’s main health needs and how to address them. The reality We start by discussing my health concerns (a mixed bag of things like fatigue, sinus problems and chronic thirst). Anne, who worked as a pharmacist for 30 years before finding kinesiology, offers some suggestions on what might be causing them and how they’re linked. She explains that kinesiology works with the interconnected system of chakras, auras and light bodies and by communicating with our muscles. I see this in action when Anne puts a magnesium bag on my belly (to stabilise me) while she holds different parts of my body (arm, leg) and moves them around. It’s as if there’s a secret conversation happening between Anne and my muscles. We rove all over the place, touching on my food sensitivities (eggs and some sauces), emotional blockage (a “past hurt”) and deficiencies (minerals).

When I hear her mutter the words, “fire, summer, yang”, I stop her and ask what she’s talking about. Anne explains that these things are out of balance, which is amazing because I’ve heard exactly the same thing from traditional Chinese medicine practitioners.

We try KINESIOLOGY

The pay off Apart from feeling energetically clearer, I’m armed with new information to really help with my health journey. The pain factor OK, I’ll be honest: I did start crying at one point (hint: this was around the “past hurt” part).

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

Yes. Anne says the process is like peeling an onion. We’ve only reached the first layer! ●

After completing a degree in biomedicine, Candace worked at the Royal Melbourne Hospital but gradually became more interested in naturopathy. “I felt that medicine was too reactive and not preventative enough,” she says. “We were getting to people too late.” She went on to study naturopathy and has been practising for eight years.

What’s in store? “We research everything we stock. We look at travel miles; we look at company ethics; we look at ingredients,” says Candace. Every item in the store is vegan-friendly and free of palm oil. You will see essential oils, candles, therapeutic tea blends, soy-inked cards on recycled paper, bamboo baby products, natural cleaning products and self care items such as deodorants and skincare. She uses local businesses where possible. Who’s buying? A lot of new mothers are drawn to the stock for their natural ingredients. “A mum can know, if she’s buying a laundry detergent, for example, it’s going to be fine for her baby,” says Candace.

RON’S VERDICT This is one for the sports car purists who appreciate style and comfort too. ●

20 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ SEPTEMBER 7, 2016

– except, of course, that this machine comes with a plush level of comfort. The cabin shows off Porsche heritage in small round driver dials, perhaps too small for the sat-nav tucked behind the steering wheel. We’re missing inclusions I expected at this level, such as a rear-vision camera, keyless entry and keyless start.  As for storage, front and rear boots provide enough luggage space for a motoring holiday, yet there’s a lack of handy places for your water bottle, sunglasses and small change in the cabin. With the Boxster straining at the leash, we shook off the cobwebs and let it find its comfort zone with a spin down the coast. Roll on summer, when the easy one-switch roof lowering and raising will get a workout, undoubtedly turning a few more heads. ●

JACQUI’S VERDICT (ISTOCK)

Why? Because it is the benchmark. It might not be the most powerful, fastest or most jaw-dropping drop-top going around, but it is arguably the most cohesive, albeit at a price north of $100,000. With a mid-mounted engine, taut body and a chassis tuned like a Stradivarius, the Boxster is pure sports car, bonded as a complete package for driving excellence. The latest iteration swaps the traditional six-cylinder horizontally opposed normally aspirated engine for a new turbo-charged four-cylinder “boxer”. Have no fear, the new, smaller but feistier 2.0-litre engine in the entry-level Boxster (the Boxster S gets a 2.5-litre version) delivers on all fronts, and even sounds splendid with the optional $4990 (phew!) sports exhaust. ●

ood, lifestyle and wellness coach Andi Lew loves talking about health on TV and radio – and in her own kitchen. The bestselling author has just released her sixth book, Wellness Loading Loading, and runs cooking classes for people with food intolerances from the airy townhouse in St Kilda, where she lives with her six-year-old son, Beaudy. Personal touches and Beaudy’s toys add warmth to the modern, clean timber lines. Apart from the massive marble bench that she uses for cooking lessons, as a background for her videos and for entertaining, the main focus in the light-filled living space are colourful, abstract paintings by Andi herself. But they’ve got some stiff competition in the form of the sky views framed by high, expansive windows. A beachside soundtrack complements fair-weather skies. “In summer we can hear people screaming on the roller coasters at Luna Park,” Andi says. “I love falling asleep to the sound of people having fun.” ● LEEYONG SOO lsoo@theweeklyreview.com.au » Wellness Loading Loading, $29.95 (Heart to Heart Publishing) andilew.com

I like the message of these little monks, which is “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil”. They were from a homewares store here, not anywhere exotic, but they come with me to each house I live in.

BOOKS When I write, I start with the end in mind, and that’s my approach in life, too. As a presenter, I’m a natural storyteller and writing is another medium to share. My sixth and most recent book, Wellness Loading Loading,, is about connecting with oneself, with nature and your community.

hen an old North Melbourne house changes hands, with the title often comes the local lore passed down from neighbour to neighbour. One tasty tale features footballer Pat Kelly, a “hard man” of the North Melbourne VFL club in the 1940s and ’50s. Pat, the former owner of this elegant Victorian terrace house, is said to have used the warren of tiny alleys behind his house to host crayfish cook-ups. With a wink and a nod, the neighbours would pop over to buy a fragrant feast. “He used to ply his trade in the lane back there,’’ says the vendor, who bought the house from the Kelly family in 2000. “Then the police found out. They wanted their share. He declined, so they closed him down.” Pat, who died in 1999, might look askance in that alley now; paved and lined with shrubs, it looks like a vista down a Tuscan garden path. His house, still a lacy 1890s edifice, is nearly twice its former size. The present owners extended in 2003 with a new kitchen and bathrooms and an open-plan living area; outside, the deck steps down to a courtyard festooned with jasmine and bougainvillea. A winsome mixture of the 19th and 21st centuries, and with four big bedrooms, the house is the ideal city-edge address for families with teenage or young adult children. It’s zoned for University High and is opposite Royal Park. Trams abound but why wait? The CBD is a 10-minute walk. The tessellated-tile verandah makes a fetching prelude to the front door, which sparkles with red and green stained glass. The arched central hall has jarrah floorboards lacquered to a high gleam. Turn left to the largest bedroom, where the pressed-metal ceiling has a pattern of flower buds and the cornices have an art nouveau lily design. There is new grey-beige carpet and a maroon-tiled open fireplace. Bedroom two, across the hall, has a similar fireplace. Along the hall, the main bedroom has a two-part walk-in wardrobe. Step through to the fully tiled porcelain en suite with walk-in shower, marble cabinet and skylight. The fourth bedroom has inglenook built-in wardrobes either side of a timber-veneer desk and bookshelves. One door down is the skylit main bathroom, which has a corner spa with shower above. Pop across the hall to a powder room, and to a floor hatch into a 200-bottle wine cellar in the bluestone foundations. The contemporary communal area is bright in white, with full-length windows and french and bifold doors to the deck. White bookshelves grace the living area and adjoining study nook. The kitchen, with its black granite benchtops and grey mosaic splashback, makes a lustrous contrast to the snowiness. The stainless-steel appliances include a Blanco 900-millimetre cooktop and oven and LG dishwasher. There’s also a laundry with a drying cupboard. The house has split-system cooling, ducted heating and security. In the rear courtyard is a brick shed with a door to the pedestrian lane down to Little Curran Street. There’s no garage but this address has two parking permits – and a car space right out the front is usually easy to find. ● ALISON BARCLAY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

A bold red splashback adds pizzazz to the pale stone kitchen with Asko oven and Blanco dishwasher. Upstairs is given over to the main bedroom with city glimpses.

PRESTON \ 120A BRUCE STREET A multicultural neighbourhood with a burgeoning restaurant scene, Preston is enjoying exponential growth. Preston Market and the cafe-lined High Street shopping strip are within walking distance of this new semi-detached, four-bedroom house. You might never guess that this pretty, heritage-style house is newly built. It sits on a quiet street, easily accessible off busy Gilbert Road. The exterior has ornate detail in the timberwork, with leadlight glass in the front door and surrounds. The main bedroom is first off the hallway. It has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with double vanity and plantation shutters. The laundry beyond has an external door and another into the butler’s pantry off the kitchen. The open-plan kitchen and living area is at the end of the hall. Bifold doors open to a large, undercover outdoor entertainment area with gas fireplace and built-in barbecue. There’s a second living space upstairs, as well as three bedrooms and plenty of storage. The front lawn is big enough for a trampoline or swing set, and there is off-street parking for two cars at the back - not that you’ll need to use the car much, with trams, a milk bar and pharmacy at the end of the street. Merri Creek trails, schools, Coburg Hill shopping centre and Preston station are all close. ● KIRSTIE BEDFORD

It’s somewhat surprising to learn this house has been built in a space that was once just a driveway. The transformation into a site for a two-bedroom residence, at an affordable entry point into a popular suburb, is impressive. Don’t let the facade fool you. The smart design packs a lot behind its single car space and bullnose verandah. Polished concrete glints in a long hall with skylights and a European laundry. Of two large bedrooms, one opens to a side courtyard with fake turf. There’s a neat, tiled bathroom between them. In the bright, open-plan living area to the rear, three large skylights punctuate the barn-like ceiling. Dark stone worktops contrast with white butcher’s tiles in the kitchen with AEG oven. The north-east-facing back courtyard is partly covered so it can be enjoyed year-round. This property is a quirky offering that would suit young professionals or investors with an eye on good returns. All Nations Park is at the end of the street, with High Street cafes, the tram and Croxton station not much further. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

Four levels of innovative spaces make this Victorian house something special – and that’s without taking into consideration the designer fixtures and finishes. Extended by the previous owners, the house has three bedrooms, an open-plan living area, and a study with an adjacent cellar set up to store wine.

Entry is to the middle level, where there’s a bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a full bathroom, as well as the kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen blends quality appliances, two-tone cabinets and a granite splashback to striking effect. With jarrah floors, exposed beams and skylights, the bespoke dining and living area has sliding glass doors to a
