fter years of languishing in the long, dark shadow of the men, women’s sport is finally having a moment in the sun. Australian netball has announced a new national league, with games to be broadcast in prime time on Channel Nine next year. The AFL is set to kick off a full national women’s competition in 2017. And the federal government has threatened to withdraw funding from sports bodies that stick women down the back end of the plane while the blokes fly up front. Things are looking up. So why, then, did news that a talented and experienced female broadcaster would replace Garry Lyon on The Footy Show cause such a furore? Thousands took to social media to vent their outrage when it was revealed in March that Rebecca Maddern would co-host the TV institution. “The beginning of the end of The Footy Show. RIP,” wrote one female fan. So what does the woman at the centre of the storm make of it all? Read our revealing interview inside. ●

SARAH HARRIS MEETS footy show co-host REBECCA MADDERN

T

he naysayers thought she wouldn’t cut it, but few AFL players have stood on a football field in circumstances more terrifying than Rebecca Maddern. Staying cool under fire could be said to be a hallmark of the first woman to host Channel Nine’s The Footy Show Show, who kicked it out of the park to create a six-year ratings record with her debut on April 7. This, after all, is the woman who once sat in the lounge room of a murder suspect and asked him the hard question: did you kill your wife? That man was Joe Korp and just as Rebecca was grilling him in an exclusive interview, his missing wife would be found barely alive in the boot of her car at the Shrine of Remembrance. Maria Korp died six months later, having never regained consciousness. Two years earlier – at just 24 – Rebecca earned one of journalism’s highest accolades for her unwavering reportage as the flames closed in on Omeo oval during the devastating alpine bushfires of 2003. “It was Australia Day. We woke fairly early and right from the start there was this strange feeling in the air and then about 10.30am the sky went completely black,” Rebecca recalls of the events that led to her winning a prestigious Quill award for news reporting. The fires had by this stage been burning for weeks in inaccessible country and other reporters had already moved on, leaving Rebecca and her cameraman, who were directed to evacuate to the oval, along with the few remaining residents. “We had one fire tanker in the middle of the ground and the change rooms for shelter. I remember having a conversation with the chief firefighter. I asked if the water in his tanker was going to be enough to save us if it came to it and he said: ‘It should be’. I remember thinking ‘should’ is not really the word I want to hear at the moment.” The fire was closing in and the crews were preparing for the flames to come right through the oval and explode the cars evacuees had driven there.

“We filmed some interviews and I did a piece to camera just before we had to get inside. It was terrifying. Then, just at the very, very last minute the wind changed and we were spared.” Rebecca had been a television reporter for just four months. “I am happy to say, now, I really didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t really know what was required in such a big moment.” There are some situations where you just have to rely on instinct and training, and that’s just how Rebecca approached her first night in the hot seat on The Footy Show alongside co-host James Brayshaw and the sometimes irascible and unpredictable Sam Newman. A firestorm of criticism erupted when 38-year-old Rebecca was announced as the replacement for The Footy Show’s previous host Garry Lyon, who went on indefinite leave and is being treated for depression following revelations of his relationship with the former wife of regular panellist Billy Brownless. But Rebecca was unfazed. “Because I have been on TV for 13½ years I have pretty much heard it all before,” she says with a tweak of her classic Carla Zampatti blouse. “But I do find it fascinating that a lot of the critique is like, ‘She doesn’t know enough about football’. I have stood in front of Parliament House in Canberra, on the steps of State Parliament at election time and no one ever worried if I knew about politics. I have never been questioned on my knowledge of anything else in my journalism career. People are very protective of their football. I suppose that is where that comes from, I am not quite sure. “I just go back to what I know, and what I know is television, what I know is journalism and what I know is presenting. When you break

fter finishing high school at Geelong College, Rebecca first enrolled in arts at the University of Melbourne before transferring to media studies at RMIT, drawn to the idea of a career behind the camera. “I thought it would be great to be a film producer, having no real idea what a film producer did, but I liked the idea you could be a little bit creative and there was also a business side. “I hadn’t any friends or family in the media industry so I didn’t really have an idea how it worked. It was actually through a friend of a friend that I got a job in radio at Triple M. That was my foot in the door. They always talk about the foot in the door, but it’s true, you actually need to get that little toe in there and off you go.” Although Sam Newman pretended not to know Rebecca on her first night on The Footy Show Show, she had in fact worked with both him and Eddie McGuire in her first job. “I actually started as a sports reporter and they would talk down the line to me to get my sports updates,” Rebecca reveals. “They were both very encouraging to me.” Coincidentally Eddie and Sam also represent competing sides of Rebecca’s football heritage. While she is Geelong’s No.1 female ticket holder, she might easily have been a Magpie, had her mother Wendy not married Rex Gorell – today chairman of one of Victoria’s largest car dealerships groups. “My dad [Graeme] and my brothers [Paul and Anthony] are actually Collingwood supporters,” says Rebecca. “But I have lived with my stepdad since I was three or four years old and he was involved in the Geelong Football Club. It was actually his influence that got me interested, although my mum’s grandfather, my great-grandfather [Harry “Nipper” Marsham] also played for Geelong [he was captain in 1917]. It was sometimes hard for my mum who has a bit of a soft spot for Collingwood. “I don’t have a soft spot for Collingwood.” As a teenager Rebecca was frequently at Kardinia Park, either playing netball or attending Cats home games with her girlfriends. “I was really fortunate to see some of the finest players we will ever see. At the time I thought it was normal to see Gary Ablett [snr] take the most amazing marks of the century right in front of me.” Between her brothers and three step-brothers, Paul, Brett and Jason, Rebecca learned pretty early how to mix it with the big boys. “Having brothers who were

it down, that is what The Footy Show is about. One of the things I bring to the show that differentiates me from others is not that I am a woman, but that I am a journalist. My skill is asking questions and I think that will hold me in great stead.”

“I think in life, challenges come up and you have to grab them, otherwise you may regret it later” quite a bit older was pretty significant, because you grow up quicker being the youngest child. It was like, ‘Put Becky on the motorbike, put Becky on the swings, put Becky in the go-kart’. I grew up a bit of a tomboy.” She was also devoted to horses and competed at Royal Melbourne and Adelaide shows. When she was about 11 she was trampled by a spooked horse as she tried to lead him into the stable one windy night. Her hip was dislocated when the horse ran over the top of her, narrowly missing her head. “I can remember I was in extreme pain and felt every single bump of the driveway and all the way to Geelong Hospital.” She endured six weeks flat on her back in traction with weights on the bottom of her leg. “It was bed pans and bed washes all that time and then I was on crutches for six weeks after that. But, yes, I rode again. You have to get back on the horse.” After the family moved from the farm at Ceres when she was 15 or 16, she stopped showing and, eventually, riding. “I think if you compete at a certain level in something it is not really appealing to just have a hack in the paddock and go for a ride on weekends. I haven’t been on a horse for 15 years probably.” These days her down time is most often spent at

the Great Ocean Road property she bought with her cameraman husband Trent Miller, not long after their marriage in 2014. She was previously married to Geelong real estate agent James Wilson. “My husband is a big surfer so I will go down and just sit on the beach and watch the waves, although he thinks I am watching him,” she laughs. “I love that time. It is the only time I ever feel I switch off. When I am in inner-city Melbourne I don’t think I can. I don’t live for the weekends so I can do something crazy, I live for my weekends or my down time to just be.” It was at the beach that Rebecca pondered the job opportunity of a lifetime after a Good Friday meeting at Channel Nine, which included Footy Show co-host James Brayshaw. People who saw her that weekend at the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach had no inkling of the churn beneath the calm exterior. “I talked about it with my husband for probably 48 hours straight. Because he’s in television and his father was in television and he actually had a TV upbringing, he is my number-one sounding board,” Rebecca says. “I wanted to keep it as in-house as possible. I don’t like talking about things before they happen and I don’t like playing hypotheticals. I just like to look at the facts and, pretty much by Sunday, I knew this was what I wanted to do.” Her parting with Channel Seven after 14 years – the last two as Melbourne correspondent on Sunrise – was not expected, although her contract was nearing expiry. It was a play out of left field by Nine executives after their approaches to get Eddie McGuire failed because of his Fox Footy obligations. “I wasn’t looking for a new job. I had a great job at Sunrise and it wasn’t that I was bored by any stretch of the imagination. I think in life, challenges come up and when they do you just have to grab them, otherwise you may regret it later.” While she will fondly recall her former job with its mix of presenting and reporting, the one thing she absolutely will not miss is the Sunrise alarm. “I think I am pretty tough, but 3.30am is incredibly taxing on your body.” It’s a reminder that you have to get up pretty early to beat Bec Maddern. She’s definitely in for the long game. ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Footy Show airs on Channel 9 on Thursdays at 8.30pm. www.9jumpin.com.au/show/ aflfootyshow/

In the beginning Kristy was born in Melbourne and started dancing at six. “I had a cousin who was in dance class and I saw her do a little show and thought, ‘I love that’,” recalls Kristy. “So I begged my mum to let me do it and she did. After my first class I said, ‘This is what I’m doing for the rest of my life’. After that first class the teacher ran out to talk to my mum and Mum thought, ‘Oh, oh, what’s she done?’ and the teacher said, ‘If Kristy loves it, she’s got a lot of natural ability and potential’.” The big break While dancing with the Australian Ballet School in 2008 at 18, Kristy was chosen to represent Australia in the Prix de Lausanne, an international competition for young dancers in Switzerland. “It was very special,” she says. In her second year with the Australian Ballet Company, aged 20, she danced in special galas in Rome and Colombia.

Where to now? “I’d love to dance with a company in the US, that would be another dream come true, so I’m going over soon for an audition.” The best part about success? “I don’t think success has come yet. I love to be humble and I take every day as it comes. You have to work hard every day. It’s physically gruelling. I’ve been injured. I’ve broken a couple of metatarsals – the bones on the top of your feet. I learned from the injury and had to grow from it. I had to become more mature about my work and health.” If I could do it all again … “I never have regrets and I see everything as happening for a reason. Having the knowledge I have now maybe I would have said to my 20-year-old self, ‘Hey, calm down, it will be all right’. But I wouldn’t change anything.” ● PETER WILMOTH pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au

coloured leather WHAT it is

Lace

Forget biker black, coloured leather is everywhere this season – from suede-fringed jackets to handbags, ’tis the season to embrace the syrupy warmth of leather and make a statement with a striking jacket or accessories.

WHAT it is

Lace reappears this winter and it’s sturdier than ever. It’s girly without being soft because this season it’s got attitude.

MATCH IT WITH

MATCH IT WITH

If you’re going to wear a coloured leather jacket, make sure you have the supporting wardrobe to match. Leather jackets in ’70s styles are making a comeback in shades of tan. These work wonders with denim or floral prints, while pale apricot and navy are also big. Try to colour block for a sharp look.

Lace works with skirts, denim, work attire and weekend ensembles. From daytime to evening wear, it’s back and looks great with leather.

WHO SHOULD WEAR IT

Fitted lace dresses work on most body shapes. If you want drama, go below the knee with your choice. Lace tops work well with a fitted skirt or tailored pant; younger fashionistas might opt for a swing skirt.

You need to own your coloured leather look; this is no place for those afraid to take risks. If leather jackets or skirts aren’t your thing, add a pop of colour with a handbag: Coach has a rainbow of colours for autumn and winter.

Check out Kachel’s sweet winter white top, $159, Feathers lace top, $179, and Thurley’s black lace Ivy dress, $799. ●

The vest will be your best friend this winter. It’s like a long jacket without sleeves, a cardigan with more structure – it’s sleek, sophisticated and here to stay. It’s also the ideal transitional piece that will take you from winter to spring with a few smart moves.

MATCH IT WITH

If you opt for a structured blazer style, it works a treat with cigarette-leg pants, crops or jeans. If a skirt is more your thing – go ’60s mod with opaque tights and knee-high boots or ’70s revival with a flared jean.

You can take this look in almost any direction – from Le Smoking YSL pant to A-line skirts and shirts, jeans, dresses, worn with heels or ankle boots. The oversized trend isn’t the most flattering, so approach with caution. You need to balance your proportions – keep the clothes under the coat tapered. Team with short skirts or A-line dresses.

KICKSTARTER

SIOBHAN CALAFIORE MEETS SOME CROWD-FUNDING SUCCESS STORIES

C OL O

nce was a time when someone with a big idea but a small bank balance had to lean on friends or family to help kick-start their plans – or file away their unfulfilled ambitions among life’s disappointments. But crowd-funding platforms such as Kickstarter, Pozible and Indiegogo have harnessed the power of the world wide web to help turn dreams into reality. Here some local entrepreneurs share their crowd-funding stories.

Angus O’Callaghan, Melbourne Platform \ Kickstarter (2015) Creators \ Ben Albrecht and Angus O’Callaghan; benalbrecht.com In the late ’60s, schoolteacher and war veteran Angus O’Callaghan tried to produce a coffee table book with his wife Annette that captured the heart and soul of the city. Now 93, Angus recalls driving everywhere for

pictures. “I discovered it takes more than a day or a week or a month to get to the soul of a city … A city doesn’t exist without people.” But Angus couldn’t find a publisher so he packed the photos away until, nearly 40 years later, his second wife Lynette said: “These are worth showing to the world’.” He started displaying the photos in exhibitions and, at a school arts fund-raiser, a photo of a woman in Japanese dress peering into the window of a Collins Street store caught the attention of fine art auctioneer and jewellery designer Ben Albrecht. “It was one of those photographs where you were like, ‘Wow, where did that come from?’,” Ben says. The pair decided to create Angus’ book with the help of designer Eamon Donnelly and the public, who donated about $50,000 through Kickstarter. Angus thinks it’s fitting that the fate of his book was left to the people to decide. “There’s something about it that appeals to people,” he says. “It’s intimate in the sense that you feel you could have been there yourself.”●

Nice Digs

Platform \ Kickstarter (2014) Creators \ Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt; memobottle.com

Platform \ Pozible (2015) Creator \ Georgia Havekotte; nicedigs.com.au

Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathan Byrt grew up together in Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula, but it wasn’t until they were living on opposite sides of the world that they decided to go into business together. The friends, who shared a concern about the excessive use of disposable water bottles, decided to start the #onebottlemovement by creating a bottle that would conveniently fit into laptop and carry bags with its slim design. Memobottle launched on Kickstarter in August 2014. Crowd-funding was a new concept for the pair. “We had little to no capital at the time to invest in the idea,” Jesse says. Within 36 hours the friends had surpassed their funding goal of $15,000. The campaign, which went on to raise a total of $261,148, got wide support from the Melbourne community, and the business has has gone global. “People from Melbourne are inherently quick adopters ... and are happy to put their resources into something they believe in,” Jonathan says. Jesse says the most important aspect to success is motivation. “We knew that the memobottle was a beautiful product, but it also had the ability to become a vehicle to change people’s mentality around single-use bottles.” ● scalafiore@theweeklyreview.com.au

ONLINE \ More crowd-funding projects to get behind

Fashion and textile designer Georgia Havekotte first had the idea to produce a modern and quality lifestyle range for dogs after struggling to find pet accessories that went with her home. She made a bed for her dog – and it started from there. With the help of her partner, Georgia embarked on her first campaign. Her focus was on hand-crafted goods. Her dog beds were to be made from durable and easy-care fabric designed, sourced and produced in Australia. There was also a range of luxury leather collars and leashes. “I started optimistic and then before you launch, you get butterflies, start to panic and reconsider whether it’s a good idea. It’s definitely a scary moment to put yourself out there,” she says. But she reached her goal of $4000 within 25 days of launching on Pozible. “I felt like a million bucks.” The business has continued to grow. Georgia says Instagram and design markets are other avenues she has used to continue the wave of public support. “The products get a strong reaction with customers. People are really engaged with the images and the message that we’re putting out.” ●

Chef’s Secrets M I K E

Cool cafe with yum food. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

here’s a little fish in the big business of Richmond restaurants, swimming against the stream of “Dining by Numbers”. Beyond its monochromatic decor and spartan shopfront, Anchovy has food that is bold, interesting, sometimes even challenging. Its succinct, ever-evolving menu, described as “Asian Australian”, makes a food-lover’s eyes twinkle – with fresh, seasonal ingredients that are anything but boring. There’s the stracciatella (a fresh mozzarrella-like cheese) with crisp green apple, vibrant spring onion oil and flaky roti bread to wrap everything up into a Mod-Viet calzone. Crispy prawn heads make an impeccable bar snack – like a crustacean bisque, only crunchy. Grilled spatchcock offers a hum of heat without being “hot”, courtesy of generous sprinklings of kampot pepper and jungle spice soaking into torched sticky rice to create a satisfying main. For dessert, the clafoutis is worth waiting for; imagine if a poached pear and flan decided to join forces and came out all melty with creme fraiche and golden crust. This is not a big place so booking is recommended, but they keep a few spots for walk-ins “who work, live or play nearby”. May we all have more little fish in our lives. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

TO SEE & BE SEEN \ COOKIE has been a favourite of mine for years. Always solid Thai food, great atmosphere and, if you can get up to the Rooftop Bar for a drink afterwards, you can try and keep up with the kids!

DATE \ E \ Chloe has been vegan for six years or so and we often go and smash some tasty treats from the girls at SMITH & DAUGHTERS. They do a mean nachos with smoked jackfruit instead of pulled pork.

FANCY DINNER \ Andrew McConnell and his team seldom miss the mark at CUTLER & CO. We have been there for a number of anniversary dinners and teamed it up with a hotel stay in the CBD for a fantastic weekend escape.

QUIET DINNER \ SUPERMAXI – I used to work for Rita (Macali) and Giovanni (Patane) back in the day at Ladro, and Rita’s Italian cooking is second to none in my book. Pizzas are killer and her porchetta is a show-stopper.

DRINKING \ Dad used to bring Georgian wine home from overseas and it would always taste crap, so I’d given up on it … until I drank Pheasant’s Tears in Tbilisi a few years back. Try the Saperavi and Rkatsiteli to party like it’s 4000 BC. ●

A

The theory goes that you should match sweet food with sweet wines, but I love, love, love to match sweet wines with savoury dishes. For me, nothing goes better with Roquefort cheese, pate or foie gras than a sweet wine, especially one that’s been made with wines infested by noble rot. The grapes in these wines have been affected by a mould that concentrates flavours and adds a marmalade character. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Brown Brothers Patricia Noble Riesling 2013 (King Valley) $37; 9% Brown Brothers first recognised noble rot in its Milawa vineyard way back in 1934 and have been making it for decades. This has helped create a wine that’s complex and subtle on the nose, with marmalade and stewed quince aromas.

Overlooking the Rhine river, the grapes from this vineyard were grown on steep slopes (up to 80 per cent) of red shale. Balance and minerality are the standout elements, along with citrus blossom, apple and spice aromas. It’s rich and smooth, with a line of citrus and apple-flavoured acid that’s the perfect foil for the intense flavours. ●

Not all dessert wines are white. I remember as a kid driving past sultana grapes drying on nets in Mildura. Similarly red sagrantino grapes have been sun-dried to intensify its rich, sweet blackberry, plum and spice flavours. Through all of this, a mesh of grippy tannins provide a structural statement that balances its sweetness. ●

This is one of four wines in d’Arenberg’s The Noble series. Made from a blend of viognier and arneis, there are aromas of apricot jam, orange and grapefruit. It’s smooth in the mouth, with a flow of concentrated flavour along a bright line of blood orange-flavoured acid that adds refreshment to its sweet finish. ●

here’s also a series of refreshingly down-to-earth mindfulness exercises, voiced by comedian Lawrence Mooney – “just let go of that s***” – as well as informative sessions on topics such as understanding food labels and staying motivated through the winter months – “Set the heater to turn on half an hour before your alarm goes off to make it easier to get out of bed.” But what really sets this apart from other online fitness programs, says Sam, is that participants have seven-days-a-week online access to his team of nutritionists, sports physios and rehab specialists for any questions and issues that may arise, as well as entry to a private Facebook community for camaraderie and support. “Getting in shape is hard,” says Sam. “If it wasn’t, we’d all be in amazing shape. And doing it on your own is even harder. So doing it with me and with the rest of our 28 community makes it easier. We have a private Facebook group where there’s regular commentary from me and great engagement with other 28-ers, sharing successes and triumphs, right through to, ‘help, I just ate a block of chocolate’.” Clearly the program has struck a chord. More than 5000 people signed up for the April program and it’s growing each month. Sam says about 80 per cent of participants stick with it for the full 28 days and 65 per cent come back for a second or third month. “We’ve got hundreds of people who have lost over 20

28 days later

woman of a certain age lies face down on a rug in the middle of the room. Her body is drenched with sweat, her face red and contorted in pain. She gasps for breath as her heart pounds in her ears. It could be a crime scene from a TV cop show, but in fact it’s day two of my new fitness regime. Welcome to 28 by Sam Wood, a new online fitness program that promises to transform your life in just 28 minutes a day for 28 days. I’ve just done 28 intensive minutes of push-ups and squats and an excruciating exercise called a “mountain climber”, which involves balancing on your hands in push-up position and jumping each knee alternately into your chest. I’ve walked like a crab, crawling across the floor on all fours, and I’ve frantically pumped arms up and down holding soup cans. Now I’m lying on my lounge room floor, weak, shaking and wondering what I’ve got myself into. Launched in February by the personal trainer and the star of TV’s The Bachelor Bachelor, 28 by Sam Wood is the latest addition to the growing list of online fitness programs aimed at the time-poor and cash-strapped. No time to get to the gym? Train along with Michelle Bridges in the comfort of your lounge room. Can’t afford a personal trainer? Follow along with Kayla Itsines on your smartphone. The key selling point of Sam Wood’s program is that you need just 28 minutes a day to turn your life around. “The whole idea was to help people get over that mental barrier of feeling like they don’t have time,” says Sam. “Time is the biggest reason people have for not getting in the activity that they need to get in. People typically try to schedule an hour for exercise and when they can’t find an hour, they give up. But 28 minutes a day is long enough to get incredible results and improve your health and well-being, but it’s also sustainable and manageable.” As well as a changing daily exercise program, calibrated to your nominated fitness level – ranging from rookie to maniac – there’s a 28-day meal plan with recipes and a shopping list for three meals and two snacks every day. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available. There’s no calorie-counting or deprivation, but rather an emphasis on good, healthy food that’s heavy on protein and fresh vegies.

kilograms since we launched in February,” he says. “These are real changes, not just a kilo here or there.” As for my own fitness journey, thankfully things start to look up after day two. Day three’s program seems easier, with an emphasis on stretches and yoga poses and, by day four, I feel exercise endorphins start to kick in. I’m feeling energised and more positive about life. I’m even starting to look forward to seeing Sam’s cheery face on my iPad each morning, urging me to “just keep pushing through” . I’ve stopped my habitual snacking and my sugar cravings have vanished. The high-protein, low-carb recommended meals are so satisfying that I don’t bother about my permitted two snacks a day. The waistband on my jeans feels looser. There have been setbacks – a blowout dinner for a friend’s birthday, a nasty cold that sidelined me for a few days, and I still dread that “mountain climber” exercise – but I feel like I’m on a new, and achievable, path to taking better care of my health. Can I spare 28 minutes a day to look after myself? You bet. ● jhutchinson@theweeklyreview.com.au » 28bysamwood.com

Which book changed your life? When I was 15 I read a little self-published book by a Buddhist monk called Because I Care and it made me realise that we were larger than our thoughts. This really had an enormous psychological impact on me and it was then that I realised I could control my feelings instead of letting them control me.

Before then I had no interest in Japan at all, and just after reading it I ended up living in Japan for seven years. I’m not sure that was a coincidence. Read more than once? The last book I re-read was Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. I first read it when I was a teenager and remembered loving it, but on re-reading it was awful, bloated and infantile.

Brisbane-based author Nick Earls is resurrecting the novella in this series of five brief but beautiful tales. Each is set in a different city, away from Nick’s usual home turf, and designed to be consumed in two or three hours. The first-person books were written to be read aloud, with recordings by notable Aussie actors released simultaneously with publication.

Maigret \ BBC First, June 12, 8.30pm WATCH bbcaustralia.com Georges Simenon’s Maigret novels are crime classics, their genteel facade belying a subversive streak. Alas, there’s little subversion in this new adaptation. Given how heavily the script labours over each plot point, this is a mystery designed for people who don’t like mysteries. Rowan Atkinson seemed bold and interesting casting but lacks any real spark. Fans of British crime should wait for the new Wallander. Wallander ● MAIGRET \ ROWAN ATKINSON

I love Richmond

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

DR PHIL DUNDEE A urological surgeon at Epworth Richmond, Dr Phil Dundee specialises in robotic surgery for men’s cancers. As part of Men’s Health Week (June 13-19) he recommends men get a checkup – including young men examining their testicles for anything unusual and men 40 and older visiting their GP for a chat about prostate cancer if they have a family history. “Robotic technology has made us better surgeons because the magnified 3D vision and dexterity of the instruments allows us to appreciate anatomy and dissect tissue with greater precision,� he says. “Patients have less pain post-operatively and can typically go home one or two days after major surgery.� Phil loves Richmond for its central location and diverse culture. What is your favourite place to eat out? Fifty Acres for lunch. The staff know everybody by name. For dinner, my kids love Baby. When my wife and I get a night out alone, there are so many choices, but Kong is a favourite and Union Dining is always good.

Favourite place for a coffee in Richmond? Fifty Acres – they do one of the best coffees in Melbourne. Best kept secret you can share? I’m not sure Bridge Road has too many secrets, but just off Bridge Road is Minamishima, a superb Japanese restaurant that does an amazing degustation matched with sake. Where do you go for some ‘me’ time? I try to get down to the pool on Gleadell Street. I can tune out swimming laps. For a workout? I like to keep fit running, swimming and cycling. The Yarra Trail is perfect for riding with the kids on the weekend and I often use it to cycle into work, up through the MCG. To buy the perfect gift? My wife buys all the gifts. We’re renovating at the moment and I know she’d like a gift from Space Furniture or Coco Republic. � MELISSA HEAGNEY

PERSONAL STYLING SESSION

The promise The Ark’s in-store workshops and one-on-one styling sessions are designed to demystify and take the intimidation out of fashion. The reality My stylist, Chelsea, asks me what my lifestyle is like. We settle on smart casual looks that can be taken from day to night. We both choose items from around the shop. The first thing I put on is a pair of skinny leg, stretchy pants and a long-line singlet. Chelsea says this will be the base to build on with other items and accessories. The pants are the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn, and as the session goes on, I try a few different styles – each as or more comfy than the next. Chelsea builds on my look with knitwear, collared shirts, coats, necklaces and scarves – and this amazing leather and suede jacket that I’m now lusting after. The pay-off I learn that for my body shape I need to accentuate my shoulders and waist, and draw

attention away from my hips by wearing tops that scoop around at the bottom, rather than cutting straight across. I’m also getting a bit more confident about mixing and matching scarves and necklaces – something I haven’t done much of since my early 20s. The pain factor No pain at all. Chelsea says there’s no pressure to buy at the styling session – it’s all about getting you confident with your style. Who should do it? Women in their 30s and beyond who want tips and tricks to get a stylish and functional wardrobe. The bill The group workshop is $25, and includes canapes and drinks and some general tips. Once you’ve attended the workshop, the individual style session is free.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

For sure – it’s always nice to have someone help you look your best. ●

SALES PITCH “Affordable luxury, where the snobbery is taken out of design”

Who’s behind the counter? Top3 By Design was founded by Terri Winter 15 years ago, but has only recently moved into Richmond after a stint in Toorak. Showroom manager Travis Chambers says the concept behind the homewares and gift shop is written on the wall: “Up to three products per category, the best in the world by merit of design.” What’s in store? No matter what your budget or taste, there’s a good chance you’ll find something perfect for you. The store stocks more than 200 brands from Europe, Australia and the US. Shop for towels by Missoni, Alessi kitchen products, cushions from Normann Copenhagen, timber clutches from Australian brand Rooster’s Rook, and bedroom pieces, cute paper watches and gifts. Who’s buying? Travis says Top3 By Design’s new location means lots of people “walk in with a clipboard and measuring tape” searching for the perfect piece for their home. The shop also attracts the design-conscious, people buying gifts and young couples looking for an affordable signature piece. The shop’s comprehensive website allows people to choose and price the pieces they like, then drop in to see the products in the flesh or buy online. ● VIRGINIA MILLEN

P O R T FA I R Y

private self-contained suites has its own individual character. All have luxurious bathrooms, king-sized beds and relaxing lounge areas. Suite one takes up the ground floor of the original bluestone house. Suite two, upstairs, has a balcony and views over the river. Suite three combines recycled timber and local bluestone and has a private courtyard. Suite four is every bit as indulgent, only larger. Dappled light gently filters through the perforated metal skin on the modern extension. As morning routines go, the Drift House experience is hard to beat. You wake up in a cloud of white linen, press the remote control to open the shutters and look out past the Norfolk Island pines to the river. After breakfast – taken from the hamper of fresh produce – it’s time to explore the boardwalk beside the Moyne River. Along the way, some of the town’s heritage-listed whalers’ cottages are a reminder of Port Fairy’s past as a whaling centre. Lunch is at the three-week-old Bank St + Co. It’s packed with locals and tourists, downing pulled-pork and apple sliders or salads of feta-stuffed figs with beetroot.

ff we go, not to conquer Everest but at the wheel of one. With no sand, rock, mud or snow to tackle, only 293 kilometres of sealed highway stands between us and our destination, Port Fairy. So much more than its famous folk festival, this picturesque village is history, nature, fishing, boats and a foodie’s paradise all rolled into one. With such inducements, a 3½-hour trip through Inverleigh and Mortlake is an easy drive. Especially as we’re at the wheel of a new Everest Titanium, the higher-spec version of the Everest Trend, which won Drive magazine’s best four-wheel-drive and car of the year awards last year. Lane-keeping system that beeps to nudge you back? Check. Adaptive, self-sensing cruise control? Check. We’re very well-equipped for the long haul. Our destination is Drift House, luxurious boutique accommodation close to the Moyne River.

For dinner it’s hard to go past Fen, formerly The Stag, a small modern restaurant with a big reputation. Fen, an Old Norse word meaning low-lying coastal land, is in Seacombe House, one of Port Fairy’s oldest buildings. Chef Ryan Sessions earned one hat in the 2016 The Age Good Food Guide with dishes that use local produce. His five-course degustation menu ($100) starts with crayfish in a seaweed broth served with native limes and samphire and ends with burnt marshmallow with Tower Hill apples. In between there is Western District lamb and other local delicacies. Last stop on this culinary tour is Coffin Sally, a bar and pizza restaurant in another bluestone building. It’s the perfect place to indulge in a glass of red in front of the open fire in the bar. The Port Fairy adventure ends when we head back to Melbourne. Thanks to the Everest, we conquered. ● MARIA HARRIS mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

to park, but you’ll even get used to its 12.3-metre turning circle with time. I pottered around while I got used to it but the aggressive throb of the motor is always there and I grew to like it. So on a lonely stretch of road I gave it its head. The sound as it rips up through the gears is electrifying and the acceleration is stunning. This is one very exciting car. And it’s solid, safe, comfortable and takes heaps of luggage. There’s lots of suede and piped leather; it’s sort of casino chic in here. But why does the cruise control not react to slower traffic ahead? Why is the lane departure software so fussy? Why do the shift paddles only work in sport mode?

wonderfully well. The five-litre V8 sounds fantastic, especially when the exhaust button is pressed to bypass some of the hardware down there – a deep, muscular note that turns into a serrated roar as the revs climb. In short, you go weak at the knees. And then there’s the guilt for having too much fun. It’s not the fuel (about 500 city kilometres to a tank, but then the tank is 105 litres); if you can afford an SVR you can afford the fuel. It’s the cost to the planet. Folk to the left wave their fingers and talk of the dolphins you’re choking, on the right they remind you of oil imports and the balance of trade. So you have trouble sleeping. But when you do you’ll dream about your last SVR experience and wake up smiling. Not very PC, but since when did dreams have to be PC? ●

SCHOOL’S OUT WITH TEACHER BRETT STOUT

About Brett

Brett Stout is Camberwell Girls Grammar School’s Head of Commerce. His journey to becoming a teacher has been different to most. He worked with major corporations such as Google before changing careers to a job he says has a deeper purpose. special promotion

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO LEAVE THE CORPORATE WORLD? Working for nine years in the corporate world was amazing. After completing a degree in business, I was fortunate enough to work for a number of great companies in Australia and overseas including Suncorp, US Bank, Bank of New York and Google. Looking back, I liked every one of my jobs. However, I wanted a career with a deeper sense of purpose. I volunteered at a special-needs school in London and was involved in running school tours of the Google office in Dublin. That sparked my curiosity and interest in teaching.

“I wanted to work with students who would challenge my thinking”

HAS IT BEEN AN EASY OR TOUGH TRANSITION? It has been easy in that I’ve always had a genuine interest in learning and a passion to help others. I’ve also been able to bring my experience from the corporate sector into the classroom, allowing students to connect to the real world. The challenge was that I went from working with teams of adults from different departments, on a variety of projects, to working directly with adolescents from different year levels. Similar to business clients, each student has unique needs in and outside the classroom. It’s such challenges that I continue to thrive from.

Three reasons. Firstly, I wanted to work with students who had a growth mindset and a genuine passion for learning – students who would challenge my thinking. I was also aware that CGGS was constantly evolving and not stagnant in its ways. Secondly, I had an interest in developing my leadership capabilities beyond the classroom and to help improve student and school outcomes. Lastly, the school offered Social Justice as part of the curriculum. I had been involved in running many charity events at my previous school so I was really excited to hear that CGGS was proactive in raising awareness about social justice issues in the classroom.

WHO WAS YOUR INSPIRATION AT SCHOOL? Ironically, my teachers. They helped me pursue tertiary education, explore career opportunities and experience events I would have not thought of or been able to do by myself. I didn’t know at the time, but I looked at my teachers as mentors. When I’m back visiting family and friends in Queensland, where I went to school, I love driving through my hometown and seeing streets named after the teachers who taught me.

DO YOU HAVE A FUNNY CLASSROOM STORY? I recently arranged a video conference between the HR director for Google Americas 36 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ JUNE 8, 2016

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO YOUR CURRENT ROLE?

and my year 12 Business Management class. The girls were so excited to be speaking to Tadhg [Bourke] in his San Francisco office. There were so many questions. We covered everything from the workplace environment to the unique Google culture, to the fact that staff can bring their pets to work and ride Segways to meetings. It got to the point that I literally had to shut the laptop screen and end the video conference because we had made Tadhg 20 minutes late for his next meeting. (I did text him later to apologise about the abrupt ending.)

WHAT DO STUDENTS TEACH YOU? Teaching is a two-way street. We must listen to our youth as they listen to us. I love the zest and energy they bring to the classroom. I enjoy hearing about the latest trends, apps and even the new words they are using. I really find it interesting and it enables me to relate to them more. I believe teaching needs to evolve with society so that our students are prepared with the necessary knowledge and skills to approach life after school. ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

hen it comes to house rules, Carolyn Burns-McCrave has but one: buy what you love rather than follow a trend. The design expert and team mentor for Channel Seven’s popular reality show House Rules has put this philosophy to playful practice in the Mitcham home she shares with building designer husband Leonard and their two sons, Fintan and Lorcan. “I really love the east coast American Hamptons style and, to give it a more Australian twist, I use a lot more colour,” Carolyn says. “The thing is to be consistent. If you pull together a scrapbook – or even a series of images on your phone – of things you like, you will generally find there is a through line. If something doesn’t line up, doesn’t speak to what you have set down as your style, you should walk away. “My favourite saying is life is too short to live ugly.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

I have always loved having fresh flowers in the house, but I found they got too expensive so I decided to give indoor plants a crack – although I am a terrible black thumb. I love the way they fill a space quickly, cheaply and I love the sense of them being living things.

FURNITURE HANDLES Whenever I go overseas, I buy furniture handles. They are easy to bring back in your luggage and can really individualise a factory piece. T To me they are like souvenirs and I can look around at them on various pieces and think, I got that on my last trip.

RETRO FLOR AL ART I bought a paint-by-numbers floral art painting from an antique store in the Napa Valley. It was in the toilet and I thought it was quite fabulous. It’s a paint-by-numbers of Vernon Ward, an English floral artist, and there started a new addiction.

TA L L B O Y This came from my grandparents’ house in Footscray. They had very little furniture and I remember this enormous, foreboding thing dwarfing this tiny little worker’s cottage. It is a purely sentimental piece. There is no way I would go into a store and buy it.

(MATTHEW FURNEAUX)

I was devastated when I lost this ring six years ago. I got it when I had my first son and one of the stones had been given to me by my late sister. I couldn’t believe it when I found it in a bag of old hairdressing stuff while cleaning out a cupboard.

CLARE KENNEDY PAYS HOMAGE TO MELBOURNE’S LATEST RETAIL TEMPLE

Arcade

So far 55 shops are tenanted, although not all are fitted-out. Those already open for business include international brands such as L’Agent lingerie and fashion labels Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire, opening their first Australian outlets. The emphasis is on fashion with some homewares. Luxe leather goods brand Coach has the shopfront on Collins Street, trading alongside similarly high-end labels Reiss, TAG Heuer and Furla, while inside shoppers will find a mix of retailers including MJ Bale, Cue, Godwin Charli and Declic, and among the chain stores are Politix, Ecco, Jo Mercer and Review. Where the old Australia on Collins failed to draw crowds, design director of ARM Architecture Neil Masterson is confident its replacement will have no such problems. “[Australia on Collins was an] internalised and labyrinthine shopping experience …

ith an atrium designed to evoke a tree canopy, Melbourne’s newest shopping precinct can be identified by 5000 cascading glass tubes in five shades of green, linking the upper and lower levels. At night it dazzles like so many emeralds and by day it filters the sunlight pouring through a vast glass ceiling. St Collins Lane is the name of the swank new shopping precinct that opened last month on the site of the old Australia on Collins arcade. Designed by ARM Architecture, the project is significant because it bridges a gap in the shopping pathway from Flinders Street through to Melbourne Central. Of course Block Arcade next door has linked Collins and Bourke streets for years, but St Collins Lane will be a dense, mid to luxe shopping experience with 70 stores when fully occupied.

“we’ve decorated the interior in a 21st century manner” – neil masterton

(HELEN MCALISTER)

INSIDE ST COLLINS LANE 3 EURO LUXE BRANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT rather than intuitive, logical and part of everyday life. Remember you would try and walk through and end up looking at tulle when you didn’t want to?” he says. Key to the redesign was an understanding of the natural pedestrian pathways through the city. Neil knows a thing or two about the way people move through the city, having worked on the Melbourne Central shopping centre redevelopment, the Melbourne Recital Centre and MTC Southbank Theatre, as well as redevelopments at the Shrine of Remembrance and Hamer Hall. “The shopping experience has to assist in the direct and intuitive path of pedestrians,” he says. “It has to become a natural part of the city, rather than a stand-alone experience, and I think St Collins Lane is doing that.” St Collins Lane takes its cues from the decorative tradition of the 19th-century Parisian and Melbourne arcades. “The 19th-century arcades in Paris were weather-protected, exotic and a place of wonder … they tried to be a place of glamour with detail, elaborate ceilings and bespoke floors … different from the city in terms of visuality, but fully integrated in terms of pedestrian movement, and that’s what we’ve done with St Collins Lane.” But this is a modern interpretation of the arcade experience, he says, with retail outlets for the 21st century. “We’ve decorated the interior in a 21st-century manner.” An identicon was used to make a digital

representation of the words ‘St Collins Lane’ for the floor pattern and a digital image of elegantly folded silk makes an impression of sculptural depth on the ceilings. But the star is the kaleidoscope of coloured tubes. “It has a kind of angelic effect,” says ARM’s interior designer Andrea Wilson. She says the contrasting geometric patterns on the floor and ceiling reference the idea of this as a “shopping temple”. “It’s a collision of patterns that evoke comparisons to such places as the Vatican,” she adds. Neil sees the canopy of green as a reminder of the southern lights of the Aurora Australis, with “a wondrous glow on the ceiling”. “The space is very high in there and probably a bit intimidating. If you can bring down the scale by putting an element in that space, it creates an identifiable place to go to.” The city’s demographic has changed dramatically, he says, and city dwellers need places where they can hang out in town when they’re not shopping. That’s where St Collins Lane’s food offerings come in. The dining precinct on level two, known as the Aviary, has the semi-restaurant feel of a dining terrace/salon, he says, rather than a sea of generic seats with tenanted outlets. Occupying 2000 square metres, with terraces at either end of Collins and Little Collins streets, eight salon-style restaurants and two kiosk eating areas are being planned including Mexican outfit Los Vida (the Burger Project, by chef Neil Perry, is open). Coffee and food outlets at ground level will run from Collins through to Little Collins. ● ckennedy@theweeklyreview.com.au » stcollinslane.com

magine this. After a long, tiring day at work you arrive home to the opulent entrance of your apartment building. Reaching 81 storeys, the building leaves a striking silhouette on the Melbourne skyline. The building is called West Side Place, the brainchild of developer Far East Consortium and topped by the proposed Ritz-Carlton, one of the world’s most luxurious hotels. As you enter the lift to your own luxurious apartment – which has 360-degree views of the CBD – you contemplate what is on the menu for dinner. But there’s no need for you to cook a meal or do the dishes. That’s because there’s a range of restaurants to choose from, including the restaurants in the glamorous Ritz-Carlton, which you live below. Over a gourmet dinner, the stress of the day starts to melt away and you decide to unwind with a hit of golf – on the virtual golf course – part of the facilities available to you. Or you could have a quick steam to release the tension from the day: there’s a sauna and steam room available too. After relaxing you may need to have a late-night meeting with international clients. West Side Place has a boardroom available as part of the residents’ facilities for any professional catch-ups. And what if you need to make plans for a date but don’t have the time to organise it? Well, the concierge will help you out, organising concert tickets or finding a booking at a romantic restaurant. It sounds like a dream but this type of lifestyle will soon be a reality with a luxurious apartment development in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. West Side Place will include four towers and 2600 luxury apartments that are a mix of one, two and three bedrooms – on Spencer Street, the west side of Melbourne’s CBD. Buyers are poised to snap them up with these amazing amenities, which also include swimming pools, gymnasiums, a cinema room, karaoke room, library and study pods and even a wellness centre. Not to

ontemporary apartment living is all about creating luxurious touches that make you feel you belong in the space. Hub Furniture’s Jaci Foti-Lowe recently gave a series of masterclasses on how to design a luxury home within a fully furnished apartment (pictured) at boutique block Six Brookville Road, Toorak, developed by Neometro and designed by MA Architects. She says the key is not about having lots of money but about working with what you have. “It’s actually the holding back and the restraint that sometimes can deliver the biggest results,” she says.

APARTMENT LUXE

Jaci gives us five top tips for creating apartment luxe:

RELIEF

LIGHTING

S M A L L S PA C E S

GREENERY

Allow for moments of relief by giving visually crowded areas room to breathe and choose furniture that doesn’t “boom” or “shout” for attention. Let nooks and crannies work for you. Look for opportunities to deliver comfort and functionality, even in very narrow spaces such as hallways.

COLOUR

Choose a palette that you love and remember that, if implemented correctly, bolder colours such as green, orange and yellow can work as neutrals.

Lighting needs to give you more than one outcome. It needs to be bright or moody … consider lamps or a pendant light dropped from somewhere unexpected. Doing away with a full-size garden for a balcony doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice greenery. Opt for one big pot plant and surround it with smaller ones. ● mtay@theweeklyreview.com.au Artwork: (on wall) Gumbunewdii Goorlydji by Nabiru Bullen (2006) from Artbank collection; (on ledge) Tree Stack IV by Gabrielle Jones, stylist’s own.

DESIRABLE DESTINATION 11 CHURC R H STREET, TOORAK, 3142 RC

Y

ears ago Church Street was not seen as a “proper” Toorak address. It was just a narrow street with old houses that people whizzed through on their way to somewhere else – such as Hopetoun Road and its opulent mansions. How things have changed. Demolition crews and builders are busy changing the face of Church Street, turning it into a place of smart new residences and upmarket townhouses. Its location near Malvern Road, with Glenferrie Road at the end of the street, is a big plus. Glenferrie and Malvern roads’ trams are real winners for families with school-aged children and the street is close to Malvern shops and the Hawksburn Village. One of the earliest developments in Church Street is still one of the best. It might be hard to believe but the two-storey, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house at No.11 – and its neighbour – were designed 16 years ago. It still looks absolutely contemporary and for that we can thank award-winning architects Rothe Lowman, who designed both houses. The takeaway message here is that good design lasts. This house has a sense of occasion, great proportions and huge amounts of light from large expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows. Visit on a grey day and the place doesn’t need the lights on. The house, on the corner of tiny Cross Street, is perfectly private. A series of courtyards facing east and north wrap around the building, merging the inside with the outdoors. There’s plenty of space for dining in the fresh air with no overlooking. A low-maintenance garden leads to the full-height front door and the entry hall. Behind a sliding door, the sitting room has a bay window letting in natural light and full-height french doors to the front garden. Like the terrace houses of old, a staircase leads off the front entry hall to the first floor. Unlike the terraces of old, this one is wide, lit by footlights and has a decent handrail.

EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS PROPERTY EDITOR \ MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au M \ 0409 009 766

The entire house feels very solid. It is sophisticated and practical. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area takes up the middle section of the house. First up is the kitchen, with its wide marble bench tops and view of the side courtyard, smart cabinets, a Smeg cooktop and oven and a pullout pantry. The dining area on the other side of the marble bench opens to the east-facing courtyard through glass sliders. Breakfast outside, anyone? Past the meals area, the living zone has a wood-burning fireplace as its focal point. Come cold winter nights, this is the spot to curl up with a glass of red. In summer, glass bifolds open the living room to the north-facing courtyard with its water feature. The laundry, with outside access, is tucked away down the side of the building. It has a door to the double garage that has an entry from Cross Street. The staircase, carpeted in dark grey, makes for an easy climb upstairs. Two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, are at the front of the house. The first has a bay window that mirrors the bay of the downstairs sitting room. The view past an old tree in the corner of the property is of the rooftops. The main bathroom has a bath, separate shower and basin above a marble benchtop. The main bedroom at the end of the hall is peaceful and private. The en suite, near the entrance to this private domain, has two basins above its marble benchtop and a double shower behind frameless glass. The bedroom has a built-in wardrobe along one wall and glass doors opening to the north-facing balcony. This house is a clever example of inner-suburban living for the 21st century. Light and space come together in perfect harmony, and the house has enough separation and zones to accommodate a family without all the maintenance of the traditional home and garden. ● MARIA HARRIS mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

BALWYN \ 49 METUNG STREET This house is a marvel of style and proportion. In a quiet pocket just minutes from Macleay Park and Whitehorse Road shops, it has a commanding street presence. French provincial in style, the facade is in cream render, with tall windows and ornate balcony railings. A wide hallway introduces the house’s delicate palette of rich, textured surfaces and materials. They include parquetry floors, marble surfaces and mosaic tiles. To the right of the entry is a formal living room. It’s a space of generous dimensions, with high ceilings, a marble fireplace and cream-coloured carpet. Further down the hall, a sweeping staircase is a show-stopper. It leads up to four of the bedrooms, all of which have walk-in wardrobes and en suites. The main bedroom is at the front of the first floor. It inspires a new definition of the word “retreat”. Not only does it have views over the trees of the neighbourhood, it also has a deluxe en suite, voluminous walk-in wardrobe, balcony and private study. Back downstairs, there’s an open-plan area that incorporates family dining space and a kitchen with Miele appliances and masses of fresh white cabinetry. Outside, there’s everything required for playing host in the summertime. A sheltered area with barbecue facilities overlooks a pool and lawn. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

Nestled in an illustrious pocket of South Yarra roughly halfway between the botanic gardens and Fawkner Park, this spick-and-span, double-fronted Victorian house has been lovingly maintained. It retains its classic heritage features while boasting a more modern kitchen and two bathrooms. At the front, the tiled verandah, rendered exterior and iron latticework are typical of the era. Inside, there are polished timber floors throughout. To the left of the central hall is a long formal living and dining space. Warmed by a marble-mantelled fireplace and lit by a chandelier, this elegant room leads to a study or third bedroom with rear courtyard access. There are two more bedrooms on the other side of the hall. The front has a built-in wardrobe and the main has an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. There’s a central bathroom at the end of the hall and then, just beyond, the house opens to a bright meals area and spacious kitchen. Outside, there’s a courtyard, a patch of lawn and a freestanding shed. ● JULIAN HEALEY

SOUTH YARRA \ 48 POWELL STREET This is one of South Yarra’s hidden treasures – a freestanding family house on a double block. It started life in 1885 as a double-fronted (Hawthorn black and cream) brick cottage. Two subsequent extensions have, while conserving its original street presentation, created a very different house, hidden by a high fence. Two original front rooms provide a traditional sitting room and dining room, while on the other side of the passage is the main bedroom suite. It consists of a generous bedroom, fitted dressing room and marble en suite. A study with open fireplace and an adjacent double garage are also in the front of the house. Beyond this, the house takes on a different architectural character. A generous north– facing family living area is presided over by a white kitchen with Lacanche oven, marble benchtops (including an island bench), cabinetry to ceiling height and a walk-in pantry. The rear of the house provides a large living room, two more bedrooms, two bathrooms and a laundry. A north-facing garden and deck (on a separate title) is the setting for a heated pool. Hydronic heating, air-conditioning, video intercom, irrigation and a water tank are other sought-after features. Toorak Road’s shops and restaurants and South Yarra Station are nearby. This large family house is close to many of Melbourne’s most popular schools. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

De Lyle is a striking reminder of how intricate and detailed inter-war houses can be. In the heart of Mont Albert, the immaculate house celebrates its heritage while embracing a modern touch. The forward portion of the house sticks largely to its roots, with polished timber floors, contrasting dark timber panelling and door frames, elegant leadlight windows and detailed ceilings. From the double-door entry, two bedrooms to the left have built-in wardrobes and bookend a bathroom. Opposite, the separately zoned living and dining rooms provide a formal space to entertain. Next, the kitchen is the entry point for the rest of the house, and opens to a spacious, air-conditioned family and meals area with access to a rear deck, lawn and freestanding garage. There are two more bedrooms here; a smaller room with a circular leadlight window, garden views and a built-in wardrobe, and a second, more spacious bedroom. Tucked away nearby are a laundry and separate bathroom. ● JULIAN HEALEY
