The editor’s desk

ne of the best things about working at O The Weekly Review is the opportunity to glimpse behind the public personae of our

favourite celebrities to see what really makes them tick. I’ve learned, for example, that Rebecca Judd unwinds by baking cakes and that George Calombaris catches up with old chums to play soccer on Saturday afternoons. Often the true passions of our most public personalities are at odds with the face they show the world. Watching the steely determination of Australian soccer superstar Tim Cahill on the pitch, you’d never guess that at home he’s a bit of a clown who loves karaoke and phones his mum before games. You can learn more about the private side of one of our most high-profile sports stars in Sarah Marinos’ fascinating interview inside. Also this week, Myke Bartlett catches up with one of the stars of the Melbourne Jazz Festival, while Alice in Frames follows a reader’s tip and discovers a little piece of Italy in South Melbourne. Enjoy! ●

ut this modest and down-to-earth man is unaffected by his global achievements and wealth, putting his success down to simple hard work and passion. “I’ve always asked myself, ‘What do you want from your life – do you want to go through life just being a passenger or do you want to maximise the game and every training session?’” he says. “I am driven and can never do anything half-heartedly. It upsets me when I see someone do something just for the sake of doing it; you might as well not bother at all. “Training and playing, that’s my life. People like football – I love football – and I maximise my potential as a footballer and as a human being. I soak up everything to be the best I can be. I don’t need the limelight; I just want to play and when you play consistently and when you constantly strive to do better, then you are always going to be relevant.” Tim says he’s always had a long-term vision about his career. “I’ve made decisions and sometimes people have said, ‘Why didn’t you go to that bigger club?’ or ‘Why didn’t you sign that new commercial deal or contract?’. I don’t look short-term and I don’t take the money and run. It’s not my style, it’s not the way this machine works …” The Tim Cahill machine also works best when his family and a handful of close friends from way back are close by. Key moments in his career have been shared with the people who mean most to him – his high-school sweetheart and now wife, Rebekah, their four children and Tim’s parents, siblings and cousins. “Every tournament I’ve played in I’ve always taken a minimum of 15 to 30 people with me. They’ve been to all three World Cups and Asian Cups and to my FA Cup games, regardless of how much it costs,” Tim says.

12 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ JUNE 1, 2016

WORLD CUP \ 2014

“If my family aren’t there to share it then it doesn’t feel the same. Before a big game I have to speak to my mum or someone from my family in Australia and definitely my kids and my missus. It’s hard for me to play without blessings from my family,” he adds. “The togetherness with my brothers and sister especially is important – we are constantly in each other’s pocket and it’s always been that way. They are my best mates. When I’m in Australia I’m pretty much at my brothers’ homes and mum’s house – they back on to each other in Sydney. “I don’t have a massive group of friends – only three or four close friends – and when I am not there they go round and have coffee with my parents and take them out to dinner. I grew up with them, played football with them or they were neighbours. It’s stayed that way my whole life.” Tim was born in Sydney to a Samoan mother and British father. His parents were hard workers who scrimped to provide for Tim, his two brothers and sister. There wasn’t a lot of money but there was always plenty of love and happy memories – and football. He recalls his football-mad father watching Premier League matches live from the UK in the early hours of the morning. Tim would sneak out of bed to watch the games, and the next day he’d practise the skills he’d seen on TV in the backyard and at the local park. He remembers his older brother, Sean, tackling and taking him on, and urging him to not let fear hold him back. “Even today, no matter where I’m playing – in England or New York or Shanghai – I’ll get a text from Sean before a game with those same words – ‘Don’t let fear hold you back, bro’,” says Tim. Despite his smaller stature, Tim impressed local coaches with his technique, passion and fearlessness. An early milestone was playing for Sydney’s Metropolitan East and then for the NSW state team. His fortunes changed once and for all midway through year 11 when his father suggested he go to England to try to secure a spot with a major English team. He was 16 when he moved to London to stay with relatives. “My parents made a huge sacrifice to get a loan to send me there

im Cahill’s home is his castle and his very private playground. Whether he is in Shanghai or at one of his luxury houses in New York or Sydney, home is where the real Tim Cahill emerges. “At home I am a whole different person,” says the softly spoken striker who is arguably Australia’s greatest soccer player. “I think people see me as someone who is quiet and not always out-and-about – a bit of a monk,” he says. “Well, at home I reckon I’m funny, a bit of a comedian. I’ll be up to no good and playing tricks. If there is a karaoke machine I’ll be holding the mic and my kids will be fighting with me to get it back. “We’ve got an indoor soccer court at our home in America and my family, my closest friends and I play a mini World Cup there. I’m just a big kid at heart who’s enjoying life.” The Cahill family’s karaoke machine is currently set up in China, where Tim is relishing the latest stage of his career. In February, he signed with Chinese Super League side Hangzhou Greentown after being dropped by Shanghai Shenhua FC. He joined the Chinese league in 2015 after two years at New York Red Bulls and a decade playing in the UK’s prestigious Premier League with Everton FC before that. He joined Everton in 2004, the same year he donned the green and gold to become a stalwart of Australia’s international team. Since then he has represented Australia in the 2004 Olympic Games, three FIFA World Cups and three AFC Asian Cups. He was part of the team that won the Asian Cup in 2015. Last year Business Review Weekly reported that he earned $5.5 million a year and had amassed a $28 million fortune.

and so did my brothers and sister,” says Tim. Sean left school to work as a mechanic to help cover the cost of the move. “So I said I’d go and try and, if I didn’t make it, I could at least come back knowing I’d tried. But I had such a strong drive that I knew, given half a chance, I’d be successful,” he says. He ended up signing with tough working-class club Millwall and says his “Samoan warrior” spirit got him through. That spirit has continued to sustain him through the tough times and the injuries that are part of the professional footballer’s life. “The Samoan warrior is a mentality and it means I can play through injuries and pain. I’ve played three games a week for my whole career and I can train and be tired but switch off mentally. It gives me drive,” he says. “I’ve seen the way they live in Samoa and how hard they work. I saw mum go to work and do two jobs from 6am to 6pm to pay the rent each month. I call those memories a beautiful scar because they’re a great reminder as to why I get up in the morning. “I’m never nervous at the thought of playing a team like Brazil, for example. I’ve always been that type of person who rises to the occasion and thinks, ‘Imagine if I can get a moment in the game and help Australia win against a top team’ or ‘Imagine if I can pick a

moment and score a top goal’. And then my brother will say, ‘Why not? You’re Samoan. Nothing can hurt you – just go and do it’.” During his time at Millwall, from 1997 to 2004, the team was promoted to the first division and Tim scored more than 50 goals. He scored 68 goals at Everton, played in the FA Cup final in 2009 and was shorlisted for the FIFA Ballon d’Or in 2006. He became one of UK’s top players – his Everton contract netted him close to $5.5 million a year. To try something new, he headed to New York where he scored the fastest goal in Major League Soccer history – in less than seven seconds. Then last year he made perhaps one of his most adventurous decisions, joining Shanghai Shenhua FC and signing a $10 million deal. The contract was suddenly severed in February but within a week he was snapped up by rival Hangzhou Greentown. “Why did I go to China? It’s simple – I’m different.” He shrugs. “I knew how big things were there and, at the end of the day, I do things because I want to do them. I’m in a market of 23 million people in China … I can see a long future in China.” He says his kids – Kyah, 13, Shae, 11, Sienna 9, and Cruz, three – have embraced living in Asia. “Moving to New York and now China – they’ve had an amazing upbringing. They are heavily involved in football and they are my biggest critics. If I don’t score – they want to know why!”

im is 36 and is looking ahead to when his playing days are over. Thanks to that Samoan work ethic, he’s taking nothing for granted. “I’ve always realised the value of money, what things cost and how important it is to not waste stuff. When things are hard to come by growing up in a big family, you appreciate things. That will never change for me. My family know I am quite anal when it comes to things like taking care of stuff. I don’t waste things,” he says. Tim has also created a business empire that includes a men’s grooming range, Vitaman, and a clothing line, Cahill+. He recently penned his memoir, Legacy, and has also written a children’s book. “There will always be a link to football. Maybe managing – who knows?” he says. “I have a few years of playing left and opportunities come up every year. I definitely plan to return to Australia but only when the time and conditions are right. I can see myself owning an A-League club in the future. I’ll be working for the rest of my life – not because I need to work but because I want to. My strongest memory as a kid was of getting up in the morning and not seeing my mum because she’d already left for work; then coming home from school and going to training and not seeing mum because she was off at her second job. “The very fact that I’m still thinking about it – still writing about it today – means that her sacrifices made a deep imprint on me for life. But they also made me who I am.” ● smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au

Ask the wine guy wine goes best with Q What wagyu beef? This question came from my butcher, A Harry of Sardes Quality Meats at the Queen Vic market, as I ordered some

wagyu hanger steak. I drank pinot noir with that particular steak and find the vibrant acid in pinot and cool-climate shiraz works well with the extra fat found in wagyu that’s been cooked until pink in the middle. For secondary cuts, which seem to take on an extra richness when slow-cooked, I tend to pour cabernet sauvignon. ● GOT A QUESTION? EMAIL \

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

Heathcote Estate Single Vineyard Shiraz 2014 (Heathcote) $45; 13.5% Ooh this smells nice. With blackberry, fennel seed and dark cherry and dried herb aromas there’s a lot going on. Bright and fresh, there’s concentration and lovely flavour. This will be better in a few years, but in the meantime its tannins offer grip and structure, while the fruit and acid are in harmony. It’s classy and effortless. ● Enjoy with \ Steak tartare

Zonzo Estate Shiraz 2015 (Yarra Valley) $75; 14.5%

St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Coonawarra) $55; 14.3%

Be still, my beating heart. Cool-climate shiraz gets me every time. Dark fruits – think blackberry, blueberry, black cherry – perfume and spice aromas that carry through to the finish. There’s an elegance and brightness you just don’t find in shiraz from warmer regions. There’s persistence without being overwhelming. ●

St Hugo’s is one of the most-collected red wines in Australia and it’s always nice to be able to say the new release is a good one. Now down to business – this smells of bramble, blackcurrant, cedar, mint and chocolate. It tastes the same, with a mesh of fine, grippy tannins driving the length and setting it up for years in the cellar. ●

Enjoy with \ Smoked beef short ribs

Enjoy with \ Braised ox cheek

BARGAIN BUY Williams Crossing by Curly Flat Pinot Noir 2014 (Macedon Ranges) $27; 13.4% This is quite a steal – a high-end pinot noir from one of our best producers. Layered, complex flavours of raspberry, cherry, earth and spice are smooth, energetic and lightly tannic in the mouth. This is a delightfully fruit-forward pinot noir. It’s a good option for the cellar, too. ● Enjoy with \ Grilled rib-eye

THE CROWD D \ Regulars are locals and business associates. Couples relax and read the paper over their eggs.

othing brings me more joy than the conversations I get to have with readers who’ve tried my recommendations, or offer suggestions of their own. Especially when such correspondence leads me to discover gems such as Gioia Mia (“my joy”), courtesy of Dr Jenny from South Melbourne. I’d visited this former schoolhouse in its previous incarnations as hipster cafes; yet in its current white-washed form, sunlight illuminating piles of persimmons on the window sills and bouncing off the copper bench, it feels like it’s been here for years, just so. Chef Andrea Mantese (via Caffe e Cucina and Sydney’s Fratelli Paradiso) keeps it simple, with a concise seasonal menu on the chalkboard that gives you no choice but to order at the counter in your best (attempts at) Italiano. And the food itself? I’ll let Jenny take it from here: “As I sat in their sun-drenched courtyard nibbling bruschetta, delectable salads, morsels of Calamari Sant’Andrea and pumpkin tortellini, I found myself thinking that more of our local citizens should be made aware of this very special oasis.” I agree. Add some baked, home-made ricotta with rhubarb compote, go heavy on the house-baked ciabatta and cap off with a glass of nebiollo. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au ● 217-239 Montague Street, South Melbourne ● 9696 5863 ● facebook.com/Gioia-Mia-South-Melbourne

WILSON LOVES …

BRUNCH \ WESTLAKE for yum cha. I don’t drink coffee, so I don’t find the need to queue up at the cool cafes for weekend brunch. I do, however, love dumplings and have been going to Westlake since before the turn of the century! My favourite are the ham soi gok and steamed dumplings. In my humble opinion, they have the best chilli oil in Chinatown.

WE LOVE …

COOKING \ Chips and mash! It’s potato season, which means they’re frying and mashing up a treat! Grab some King Edward potatoes or Dutch Creams from your favourite potato purveyor, such as M J Mow @ Prahran, Georgie’s Harvest @ South Melbourne or Jones’ Potatoes @ the farmers’ markets around town. ● WATCHING \ My mate Poh Ling Yeow is back on screen for another season of Poh & Co (8.30pm, Thursdays, SBS). We got to visit her Jamface cafe while in Radelaide last month and now we get to watch it take shape week by week! ● LISTENING TO \ Food52’s Burnt Toast podcast is SO great for bluetoothing on trips between eats. I especially enjoyed the episodes with food critic Jonathan Gold and Nigella Lawson. ● READING \ The first thing that strikes you about Incredible Bakes (Caroline Griffiths, 2016) is the croquembouche on the cover, followed by the fact that the toffee and all of the recipes inside “happen to be refined-sugar free”. ●

ABOUT DANIEL Proud Kiwi, chef & partner at Huxtaburger ● danielwilson.

QUIET DINNER \ I love the FITZROY TOWN HALL HOTEL. Sean’s (chef, Sean Donovan) food is so delicious and there’s a great selection of craft beer.

FANCY DINNER \ It has to be FLOWER DRUM. There is no other restaurant like it in Melbourne; the service and food are second-to-none. I love the crab dim sum with XO chilli. Also, for a fancy night in, they do takeaway and can also send a Uber to pick it up!

FOR A DATE \ EMBLA in the city is a great place for a date. It’s informal enough and has a timeless charm despite being open just six months. The food from the wood-fired oven (especially the bread!) is amazing.

BIG GROUP \ For an informal big group catch up, I like to go to the rooftop at BOMBA. With great views of the city and an excellent menu of Spanish bites, it’s a really “Melbourne” was to spend an afternoon. ●

(CHRIS MIDDLETON)

TO SEE & BEE SEEN \ I love people-watching, so sitting on the footpath outside OMBRA is a good way to spend an evening. The food is simple, yet tasty. It’s so easy to get swept up in the Italian charm.

T

he Melbourne Jazz Festival gets into full swing this week, with a visit from Lady Day herself – sort of. Acclaimed American vocalist Jose James will be filling Billie Holiday’s shoes, performing her greatest hits, as covered on his album Yesterday I Had The Blues. Given Billie’s legendary status, you’d imagine he might have felt daunted reworking her standards. Not Jose. “I think she left some pretty strong guideposts,” Jose says. “She said she had to believe in the song, to feel it, otherwise she couldn’t make the audience feel anything. Obviously, I’ve had a different life, I’m a different person, but I can find my way into her catalogue emotionally.” He says he resisted the pressure to update the songs, instead recording them live in the studio

with his favourite jazz trio. “We had no rehearsals. I set it up so it would be pure jazz, like the way Billie would have done it. It was five guys in a room and the whole album was done in four hours. Everything was a first take. It’s very rare for things to happen like that; it was pure magic.” The only additional session was for Billie’s most startling number, Strange Fruit. Jose opted for a minimalist take, performing a cappella over a live loop of his own vocals. It’s a breathtaking, intimate version of a song easily robbed of its power by a careless performer. “I want to be punched in the stomach when I hear that song. For me, that’s the benchmark. If it’s working, you’re crying.” Jose has always been up-front about Billie’s influence on his work, but says she remains unappreciated in the jazz world. “It’s hard to imagine now, but she was the highest-paid, most popular black entertainer in the world. The equivalent today would be Beyonce.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

George Clooney is Lee Gates, a TV shock jock (apparently modelled on Mad Money’s Jim Cramer) who makes a bad investment call and costs faithful viewers their life savings.

STAYING IN The Dry by Jane Harper (Pan Macmillan) janeharper.com.au

WATCH

Winner of last year’s Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript, journo Jane Harper’s debut novel is a crime thriller that encourages all those hoary old critic cliches – a page-turner that keeps you guessing to the end. In this case, they’re true. Jane grounds blockbuster-sized excitement in the claustrophobic setting of a drought-stricken Victorian town. The prose is crisp, the plotting masterful and there’s a rich and convincing undercurrent of social realism. ● HEAR

Cleverman \ ABC, June 2, 9.30pm facebook.com/ClevermanTV

There’s an alluring boldness to this new sci-fi series, both in ambition and its tackling of racial issues. Cleverman has our nation riven by the emergence of Hairies – hirsute super-strong “sub-humans”. There’s some connection to the mythical Aboriginal figure of the title, who has his own superhero powers. The first episode tries to do too much, confusing more than intriguing, but this is excellent telly. ● CLEVERMAN \ HUNTER PAGE-LOCHARD

It’s been four years since we’ve heard from Kiwi Pip Brown. From the sound of it, she’s had a rough trot wrestling with the demon drink. Now sober, she’s back with her brightest bunch of synthpop yet. While there are dark thoughts at work, they’re wearing their best dancing shoes. The romantic title track is more slow dance than disco-down, but this is an irresistibly fun collection of chart-friendly pop. ●

PEGGY O’NEAL Peggy O’Neal is the president of Richmond Football Club, which has recently partnered with VicHealth for Find Your Motivation, a campaign encouraging women to be more active in their day-to-day lives. The club has encouraged women and all staff who work there to take part in daily walks and other activities. Peggy says she’s found the drive to keep active through the program. “I know that it’s important to have a balanced lifestyle,” Peggy says. “It has given me an extra incentive to try to integrate exercise into my daily activities.” Peggy lives in Richmond and loves the suburb for its great food and atmosphere.

I love Richmond

Where do you go for a great cup of coffee? My regular spot is Demitri’s Feast, with all those wonderful Richmond Football Club posters adorning the cafe. For a fantastic meal? We are spoiled for choice in Richmond but I

most frequently go to Noir and Saint Urban. For a pub meal, the London Tavern; for a healthy breakfast or lunch, Feast of Merit. It’s hard to pick just one! For the perfect gift? Lily and the Weasel – I always find something that I like there – a range of prices and unusual items from baby gifts to gardening. For some “me time”? I travel so much for work that me time is sitting on my terrace or in a park near home looking at the city skyline, the MCG and the Punt Road Oval. Having time to immerse myself in a good book is a true luxury. For some exercise? Living in Richmond means that it’s generally easy to walk to all the places that I need to go so I walk to as many appointments as I can, including those in the city. I also go to pilates a couple of mornings a week at Dynamic Stability. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

CRISS CANNING’S WORK

22 THE WEEKLY REVIEW W \ JUNE 1, 2016

(SUPPLIED)

The reality When I arrive, the gallery is showing works from US artist Ken Wilson and Melbourne’s Criss Canning. The large white space of the entry is the perfect backdrop for Ken Wilson’s abstract cityscapes. They are largely monochromatic, with the occasional pop of colour to create balance and contrast. In a room off to the side, Criss Canning’s bold and detailed oil paintings of flowers and beautiful objects strike me as I walk in. The thick layers of paint create texture and I almost want to reach out and touch them – though of course I keep my hands to myself. The pay-off After wandering the gallery for half an hour, I treat myself to lunch at the adjoining

tea-rooms. The finger sandwiches are a hit, and I feel oh so proper sipping my tea from Wedgwood china. The pain factor No pain, unless you feel the need to part with thousands to buy one of the pieces, but then of course you’ll own a special artwork forever. Who should do it? Anyone who wants an afternoon of art-browsing and tea-sipping. The bill Free entry to the gallery, lunch items start from $15 and high tea starts from $55 per person.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN? Definitely – a beautiful way to spend an afternoon. ●

The range includes toys, clothing and decor for babies and kids, homewares such as cookbooks, kitchen accessories and soft furnishings, and clothing for women. “We’ve both got a pretty good eye for picking things that you don’t find everywhere else,” Lucy says. Who’s buying? “It’s a bit of a one-stop shop for babies up to grannies,” Lucy says. Many of her customers

to be a bit more ruthless with the accelerator, kicking down to a lower gear or two, I thought it was a bit sluggish. This is all stuff you sort out after a few days but on a short test drive it can be off-putting. The Rio is primarily for couples; the rear seat is for children and maybe adults on short stays only. But the boot is pretty generous given the car’s compact dimensions and a big shop will fit, albeit tightly. I liked the upholstery, the layout and the tactile steering wheel, the big, clear instruments and the positioning of the trip computer. Pairing my phone took two attempts and then I couldn’t call up numbers, otherwise the software is straightforward. It has parking sensors, climate control and auto headlights but, given the price, I would have liked a reversing camera and embedded navigation. ●

five doors. At those prices, it’s competitive buying against things like the Mazda 2 ($16,990 with five doors) and the five-door Yaris ($18,236). But start moving up the range and Rio prices rise sharply. The SLI is the top model with a more powerful engine and six-speed auto, and it costs more than the top Mazda 2 and the top Yaris. While you might be able to justify the difference with extra equipment (the Rio SLI at least gets a full-size spare wheel), this is essentially an optionedup version of the $16,990 model. The suspension is tight, meaning a fairly sharp ride and it gets noisy over coarse bitumen and poor surfaces. The transmission has been calibrated around fuel economy, so it can be reluctant to change down, but the motor is a willing little performer and it copes. ●

It’s a city car and if the great bulk of your motoring lies here, it’s entirely acceptable. ●

hen jazz cat Wilbur Wilde discovered that the great Norman Lindsay painted for a time in the house next to his Ivanhoe digs, there was only one thing for it. “I was in my dressing gown and I had to go out the back and get on tiptoes to peer over the back fence,” the saxophonist (Ol’ 55 and Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons) and much-loved Hey Hey It’s Saturday personality says with a laugh. Chances are the owner of the neighbouring property has stolen a look back as some of the greats of Australian jazz have trooped up the stairs to Wilbur’s living room cum rehearsal space with its big vases of sunflowers and sweeping view of the Dandenongs. “You can’t look at that view without feeling that this is a good place to be,” Wilbur says. When he’s not making music, Wilbur can be found teeing off on the local greens. “That’s my job description now. I’ll just play golf and saxophone until the money runs out.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

The Buddha was a gift from my sister. Our dad Peter died in a car accident on March 18, 1959 on the road out of Lavers Hill. At the same time the Dalai Lama was trekking over the Himalayas to Dharamsala after escaping Tibet. I am not a believer, but kindness and optimism are the things I like about Buddhism.

I have two Selmer saxophones. I have poured my heart and soul through both of them for more than 40 years. I don’t have a name for either of them, but when I open the case for a gig or to practise there is this frisson of reunion: “Hi, old friend, how are you?”

PHOTO

BRONZE SOLDIER

This photo of Miles Davis was taken by jazz photographer Jim Marshall. In 1980 I went around the world with Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons. This was a welcome to New York gift from a promoter, presented at Windows on The World on the 107th floor of the World Trade Centre.

My eldest son Ryan is in the Army Reserve. He works for a company that supplies fatigues and highend battlefield gear to the SAS and Commandos. It is his face that was used for this figurine of the modern Australian soldier.

KEYBOARD Having a piano in the house is a wonderful thing. Mum had a piano in our house and we didn’t take lessons. This Yamaha Clavinova has been with me for more than 30 years and has been played by the likes of Paul Grabowsky, Sam Keevers, David Hirschfelder and Mark Fitzgibbon, to name a few.

GOLF These days, driving clubs are all made of metal, graphite and carbon fibre, but these reflect old-style craftsmanship – being handmade out of single blocks of persimmon wood. I started playing golf 45 years ago and I am still shithouse. The aesthetic of golf and the etiquette of golf is very important to me. JUNE 1, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 27

BLUE-RIBBON BRILLIANCE 32 HAWTHORN GROVE, HAWTHORN, 3122

T

he address says it all. Hawthorn Grove is the jewel in Hawthorn’s real estate crown and the most prestigious street in the famed Grace Park estate. Cafes and shops are on Glenferrie Road at the end of this blue-ribbon street, as is the tram that transports hundreds of students to school every day. Few streets in Melbourne can claim to have such variety of design and decoration in their late-19th-century houses. The street is a glorious mix of Victorian single-fronters, sprawling villas with towers, mansions and stately Edwardians. Hawthorn Grove houses are famous for their decorative glass, cast iron, plaster and two-tone brickwork. Large established gardens, many by well-known designers, sweeping lawns and mature trees add to the street’s charm. Much of that would have been lost were it not for the campaigning of a dedicated band of local activists and architects in the 1960s and 1970s, who fought for heritage listing for Hawthorn Grove when a swath of houses in other streets was being bulldozed for flats. Elstow, c1897, is a Victorian but it has many Edwardian elements. There’s the tuck-pointed red brick facade with protruding front gable, the terracotta-tiled roof and the return verandah with timber-painted fretwork. Original features of soaring ceilings, ceiling roses, deep cornices, marble mantelpieces and tiled hearths provide the background for easy family living in the single-storey house. The arched entry hall, lit by a crystal chandelier, with black-and-white marble floor tiles is an impressive starting point. The living room and library or formal dining room are off this hall. The library is striking. Green walls contrast with the white ceiling, skirtings and window frames. Expensive heavy silk curtains frame the windows. Luxurious window treatments, from soft sheers to sumptuous silk, are a feature throughout the house. Although spoilt for choice with formal and informal living rooms, the “grey room” – so called because of its deep grey

walls – looks like a prime spot to pull up a chair in front of the open fire. Contrast comes from the white ceiling, the white-painted skirtings and window frames, and the white marble mantelpiece and fire surround. The result is a quietly beautiful space that is far from sombre. Bedrooms and bathrooms are ranged off the transverse hall. The main bedroom at the front has a white marble mantelpiece. Gold and blue curtains and metres of sheer fabric let filtered light inside. With the curtains open, the full beauty of the front garden is on display. A white marble en suite with frameless glass shower completes the package. At the end of the hall, past the bathroom and laundry, the now-familiar open-plan kitchen and family room beckon. An anteroom, lined with open shelving, leads to this contemporary space. The vibe is casual and relaxed. The sympathetic extension maintains the high ceilings of the front of the house and polished floorboards. Similar two-toned brickwork makes up the exterior. The large kitchen has a long timber bench that looks over the meals area and beyond into the back garden. A five-burner Ilve gourmet stove and Miele dishwasher are fitted among the all-white kitchen cabinets. Bifold doors extend the meals area to the elevated terrace for outdoor dining. A set of double doors in the centre of the room also leads outside. The family room occupies the other half of this area. The open fireplace, flanked by storage on either side, is the focal point. Dramatic grey/brown sheer curtains provide privacy but still let the light in. The back garden is made up of a large lawn, perfect for children’s play, and wide, curved herbaceous borders. As the real estate market tells us, history is a bestseller. Heritage is huge. Properties such as Elstow help make Hawthorn “unique” and add to Hawthorn Grove’s appeal. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

GLEN IRIS \ 56 GARDINER PARADE It’s not your standard Glen Iris house, but its magnificent elevation over Nettleton Reserve, well-zoned family accommodation and walking distance from transport and schools make this property a standout. The house was built in the 1980s to an architect design on three levels. Sandstone blocks with a textured rock-face finish feature on the facade and in the rear landscaping, where the sloping site ends with a water feature and built-in trampoline. The three- or four-car garage incorporates storerooms, a workbench, cellar, gym and powder room. The first level has a timber-floored formal dining/living room with dedicated bar and stone chimney, two bedrooms and a family room alongside the timber kitchen and meals area. The top level is devoted to three bedrooms under attic-style ceilings. The oversized main bedroom has a spa en suite, walk-in wardrobe and sitting area. Double-glazing, plantation shutters and swipe-card access are among the extras. There’s a Tuscan flavour to the casual living area, which opens to a terrace ideal for outdoor dining and basketball practice. The address is central to shopping at Tooronga, Ashburton Village and Camberwell Junction. The new residents will be able to stroll along Gardiners Creek parkland to brunch at Glen Iris Pantry, Raven Hill or Platform Espresso. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON

Age has not wearied this Balwyn beauty. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom villa unit in a prized street off the Golden Mile was built 40 years ago. These single-level villas were noted for their classical style, with neo-Georgian pediments, pillars and elegant interiors. This one, second from the front, also benefits from a secluded, elevated, north-facing terrace and garden. Meticulously maintained and refurbished some years ago, the villa has white plantation shutters and a contemporary gas log fire in the living room. The carpeted open-plan living and dining room off the entry hall is spacious and light. The kitchen and dining room overlook the terrace. Original kitchen cabinetry and U-shaped laminate benchtops are in immaculate condition. The bedroom wing has several options. The main bedroom and second bedroom have en suites, while the third bedroom, which also opens to the terrace, is set up as a study. Ducted heating and cooling, a concealed laundry, storage and a tandem garage are other features. ● MARIA HARRIS

Built in 1890, this house was once home to prime minister and Liberal Party leader Sir Robert Menzies. Although the residence has been extensively renovated and extended over the years, it has not lost its old-world charm. Set well back from the street, the house

capitalises on its northern orientation, with formal and informal living spaces opening to a wide deck. Surrounding the house are magnificent formal gardens. Liquidambars, maple, elm and bay trees frame big lawns. The classic Victorian facade has decorative brickwork, elegant tuck-pointing and cream wrought-iron lace.

Further down the hall is the formal dining room, which pays homage to its past. Painted in shades of red and gold, this regal room has an original timber fireplace, decorative cornices

A sanctuary amid frenzy is the cool allure of this 1930s house which, despite being perilously close to the Riversdale Road junction, is set so far back behind a hedged garden one can hear almost nothing when inside. The double-brick house has an arts and crafts interior, with masses of leadlight-panelled, dark-stained timber cupboards, sideboards and doors; there’s even a hatch through which to pass cocoa to the bedroom wing. Formal, bay-window living and dining rooms and an enormous lounge or library offer elegant spaces for entertaining or retreating in studious bliss. The carpeted living room has an open fireplace. The dining room is fascinating, full of cupboards with tiny keys and a secret servery. Next door, the early ’70s kitchen is well built in timber and mango orange laminate. The meals area opens to the rear garden. Three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and share an original, gold-mosaic bathroom with tiled shower and enamel bath; the fourth has a modern en suite. The double carport has a garage behind it. ● ALISON BARCLAY

BALWYN \ 121A WINMALEE LEE RO ROAD Looking like a millionaire’s pile in the south of France, this month-old chateau is just within the Balwyn High zone and has adjoining living and dining rooms for entertaining on a lavish scale. Rock stars will be as cosy here as corporate honchos; the larger main bedroom is of presidential-suite proportions. There’s a petite garden with a north-facing lawn and a covered terrace providing a pleasant flow back into the house. The two-storey house has a side driveway to a double garage. The communal areas are beautifully spacious, with American oak parquetry and beige carpet, semi-recessed ceilings and many full-length windows. The living room has a gas log fireplace, and this and the dining room have glass Mazzuccato chandeliers. The open-plan space includes meals and family areas and the kitchen, radiant in Calacatta marble with Miele cooktop, an espresso machine and wall, steam and microwave ovens. There’s a walk-in pantry, a laundry and a powder room. Two main bedrooms allow an interesting choice – ground-floor convenience (with walk-in wardrobe and marble en suite) or first-floor magnificence, with a sitting area and two walk-in wardrobes leading to a bathroom so long it has showers, toilets and cabinets at either end, divided only by a freestanding tub. ● ALISON BARCLAY

TOORAK \ GO6/1 WALLACE AV A ENUE When One Wallace Avenue was developed a decade ago, it set new standards of luxury, not only in its public spaces and amenities, but in its interior finishes, its bathrooms and kitchens, even its windows and doors. This ground-floor garden unit incorporates all this luxury plus a unique location; all its seven rooms face north. They open onto a private terrace through full-height glazed double doors. Entry from the building’s secure lobby is into a foyer, then a dramatic enfilade of rooms opens up – dining, sitting and drawing rooms, library and study. The dining room, library and study can be closed off by concealed sliding doors. A reasonably discreet cocktail bar serves this great entertainment area. The kitchen is generous and well fitted out with fine cabinetry and imported, integrated appliances. Two bedrooms are in the western section of the apartment. They also share the northern terrace. The main suite consists of a dressing room with almost eight metres of wardrobe. Its marble-lined bathroom has a tub, shower and double vanity. A second bedroom has access to a luxurious shower room. A cloak room and laundry are located in this area. The building has a resident manager, pool and gym. One Wallace Avenue is adjacent to Toorak village, its many shops and restaurants. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

Built in 1890, this Victorian house has been transformed into a chic and contemporary wonder. Despite its modern styling, the original ceiling roses remain in the ground-floor rooms. From these hang pendant lights, while LED downlighting dominates elsewhere. The house has a quintessentially Victorian floor plan, with blond timber floors in the hallway and the rear living spaces. The sitting room up front is carpeted and has a delightful bay window and gas fireplace. The main bedroom is also carpeted and has a skylit Italian porcelain en suite that connects to a walk-in wardrobe. The living areas at the rear are open plan. Bright and white, this space has a contemporary gas fireplace and a sliding glass door to a courtyard – all this in view of a white marble kitchen with Miele appliances. Upstairs is carpeted and has two loft-style bedrooms at either end of a retreat. The bedrooms have split-system air-conditioning and storage. There’s another bathroom on this level. ● JULIAN HEALEY
