t used to be conventional wisdom that if you wanted your child to keep you in style in your old age, you should put a golf club or tennis racquet in their hand as soon as they could walk. Golf and tennis were the sports where the big money was. These days you’d be better off handing them a basketball. According to BRW’s latest list of Australia’s richest sportsmen, three of our top 10 earners are basketballers. Is it a coincidence, then, that basketball has emerged over the past decade or so as one of the most popular sports among Aussie kids, eclipsing cricket, tennis and AFL in terms of participation, according to ABS figures? Of course the hundreds of thousands of kids who take to our suburban basketball courts each week won’t all end up playing with the NBA on $40 million-plus contracts – like this week’s cover star, Andrew Bogut. But his journey from Dandenong all the way to sports superstardom makes one hell of a story. Enjoy! ●

MR

’m standing next to Andrew Bogut in his management’s office in Port Melbourne. Actually, as he is 2.13 metres (seven feet) tall, it feels like I’m standing under Andrew Bogut. But his height isn’t the only eye-opening aspect of our time together. It’s a surprise to know that the 31-year-old, who has been surrounded by the rap culture of the American basketball world since he moved to the US on a basketball scholarship at 18, is more into Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac. “It’s heavily a hip hop/rap-type culture, which is not something that I’m into, so it does get hard at times not fitting in with that culturally,” he says. “It’s actually cool to immerse yourself in a different culture sometimes but you just know deep down sometimes it’s not how I was brought up. It would be similar to them coming to Australia, it would be a culture shock. So I still have culture shock every now and again, and still get homesick from time to time, even though I’m 10-15 years into living in the States.” With his great height it’s probably not hugely surprising that gymnastics’ and taekwondo’s loss was basketball’s gain. Growing up in Dandenong and later Endeavor Hills, Andrew’s older sister did gymnastics and Andrew “got pulled into [it]”. “I absolutely hated gymnastics,” he says. “Too long and lanky for it. I wasn’t the most flexible bloke growing up.” At nine he played football (Vic Kick, now Auskick) and then taekwondo, but nothing was sticking. “I didn’t get my stripe one week and it p---ed me off,” he says of taekwondo. “I was over it, didn’t want to do it any more.” He loved basketball from watching it on TV but had never tried it. “It was between basketball and footy,” he says. “The parents said, ‘This is the last time you change sports. It’s costing us fees and driving you around. Pick what you want to do’.”

JUNE 15, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9

strong element of Andrew’s career narrative has been his battle with injury. In one fall in March 2010, during a career-best year, he dislocated and hyper-extended his right elbow and broke his wrist. “Probably the worst injury of my career,” he says. “My elbow was facing the other way. Still a tough thing to swallow knowing I was having such a great year. My status kept going up every year and it kind of took a downturn a little bit. But I salvaged it.” He was meant to be out for 12 months but returned, “stupidly”, he says, five months later. “That whole following season I had nerve issues and lost a lot of feeling in my right arm, which is tough for a guy that shoots with his right hand,” Andrew says. “A lot of the skills I relied upon kind of went out the window. It was still a decent year, numbers-wise.” But the pain continued all year. “It got to a point where someone had stuck a knife [in it], so every five shots I’d go, ‘What’s going on?’” At the end of the season he had a clean-out

A

Andrew made a good choice. He became a superstar of the game, playing in America’s National Basketball Association with the Golden State Warriors, based in Oakland, California. Australia’s highest-earning sportsperson, three years ago he signed a contract worth a reported $44 million. His fortune has been estimated at more than $100 million. But at 17 his dream of playing in the US was just that – a dream. “I always thought I could be at least an NBL (Australian league) player but I was told by everyone, ‘You’re not going to make it, the percentages are too low’, blah blah. It did fire me up a little bit more. That’s how it is. The numbers are in their favour to say that. Chances are very rare.” Andrew went to college at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on a basketball scholarship and showed huge promise. He received offers to move to other colleges but knocked them back because he’d given his word to play for Utah for no money, just an education. He was the first pick in the NBA’S 2005 draft, the first Australian to achieve this. He played with the Milwaukee Bucks for seven years, which ensured strong media scrutiny. “It’s not something I enjoy even to this day,” he says. “I like flying under the radar. I don’t do the Hollywood-type stuff.”

“and there was a loose bone floating around in there”. He recovered, was back in great shape and playing well again. But in January 2011, 10 games into the season, he snapped his left ankle. It was a 12-month injury. Surgery followed, but it was still an issue. “I couldn’t push off my ankle; it was swollen after every game. I had no power off that left side.” In 2012 Milwaukee traded Andrew to the Golden State Warriors, where he has become a key player with one of the NBA’s powerhouse teams. Twice his career could have ended. “The elbow one I could always bounce back from … but you lose a lot of skill and a lot of touch with the right hand … The ankle one was the one where they said, ‘High chance you won’t be able to run properly again’. The surgeon did a great job. He said, ‘You’ll never be the same, you’ll feel the difference; we did the best we could’.” The past few years, he says, have been relatively healthy, but he has to manage the ankle injury daily. “I’m 129 kilos, it’s a lot of force through that ankle, I’ve got to make sure I do my rehab, every other day, three or four times a week.” Andrew now lives in California and travels back to Melbourne every off season for a month or so to catch up with family and friends and to oversee his business interests here, which include a sports agency and “a bunch of commercial investment properties that I manage myself”. He owns a basketball facility in Carrum Downs that he wants to turn into an academy for kids. On his last trip to Melbourne I ask whether his wealth has changed him. “It changes a lot,” he says. “It changes friends, it changes family, it changes a lot of different things. People around you change. A lot of people will see you as an ATM where they think they can just come up to you and withdraw money. It’s kind of the nature of the beast. “You get a lot of family and friends with business ideas or, ‘You should invest in this’ or ‘I need this’ or ‘I need that’ and eventually you get to a point where you say ‘no’. That’s probably the hardest part for me as an athlete … “When people reach out to me whom I haven’t spoken to for a while … I can already tell there’s an agenda. It’s an unfortunate way to think, but I can already see the red flags.” With 18 months left on his contract with the Warriors,

“I was told by everyone, ‘you’re not going to make it’ … It did fire me up a little bit”

e has always been aware of the dangers of not having a plan. “You see a lot of athletes, a massive number, hit depression even though it’s not reported, not knowing what to do. You come from almost an army lifestyle, a regimented regime … to all of a sudden wake up … Nothing.” Does this frighten him? “Not at all. I’m pretty regimented. I have a lot of interests. To be honest I’m busier in the off-season than the on-season. I knew there was a correlation between athletes going crazy towards the end of their career. During your career you’ve got to have outlets away from basketball.” One of those for Andrew is poker. “It’s probably not a great one, but I love cards. I never play against the house, I never play blackjack but I love playing poker.” It’s an enjoyable distraction. “It’s not so much for big money, it just takes my mind away,” he says. “When you’re in a hand of cards – for me, anyway – it takes my mind away from any stress because you’re focused on the moment. And I enjoy counting odds and reading people, all the intricacies that come with it.” Another major passion is old Australian and American muscle cars. As the son of a mechanic, he grew up around cars. How many muscle cars does he own? “Too many. I’m not a Ford versus Holden guy, I like both. I like ’70s Ford, GTs and Mustangs, and for the ’80s I like the Brock Commodores. I grew up around Brock Commodores; they were always the wow-factor car.” When basketball ends, he would like to learn how to restore cars. “I’d like to buy some crappy car for a couple of grand and just strip the thing down and do it all myself. Make a mistake – mate, if it finishes with five wheels or three wheels that’s not the point, the point of the exercise is to learn.” ● pwilmoth@theweklyreview.com.au

H  

Andrew has ensured he will transition well into retirement. “I have a lot of things that take up time off the court, business interests,” he says. “I do a lot of things around property, especially in Melbourne. First and foremost is managing my wealth. I’m fortunate enough that when I retire, whether it’s here or the States, or wherever it is, I don’t have to do a nine to five and come into the same place every day. “Right now that’s a huge advantage where I can tinker with a bunch of different things … and just be involved in raising my kids when I have them one day. I don’t think I’ll be involved in the sport too much, although you never know.”


Ask the wine guy keep reading about terroir and Q Iwine. What does it mean? terroir is a French concept that by A definition takes in the following elements: vineyard site, winemaking

and climate. The idea is that the wine speaks of the site it was grown on, rather than the influence of the winemaker. We’re talking about single vineyards here, but not necessarily single grape varieties. Many vineyards are planted to several varieties that get blended together – these wines are capable of showing off their vineyard site, too. ● 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

Willow Creek Malakoff Vineyard Shiraz 2014 (Pyrenees) $30; 13.5%

Craggy Range Aroha Te Muna Pinot Noir 2014 (Martinborough) $140; 13.5%

Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Lusatia Park Pinot Noir 2014 (Yarra Valley) $36; 13.5%

Malakoff is fast becoming a famous vineyard – its fruit is highly sought after – and this shiraz is a stunner. It’s all black cherries and plums, spice and white pepper. It is medium-bodied and smooth, with a great structure of fine, grippy tannins. You would expect to pay double the price for this wine. ●

Martinborough is my favourite pinot region in New Zealand. It’s a beautiful place, too. With cherry, raspberry, strawberry, plus earthy herb and wet stone flavours, the wine is smooth but lively. Its structure is spot-on: a light grip, mineral acid and loads of delicate flavour, and an effortlessness that’s perfect. ●

This is one of the local vineyard series wines – taste them all at Oakridge’s cellar door – and comes from the Lusatia Park Vineyard in the Upper Yarra. Stalky berry and cherry aromas offer up a delightful perfume before elegant flavours of forest berry, blood plum and cherries seamlessly fill the mouth. ●

BARGAIN BUY Brown Brothers Chardonnay 2015 (King Valley) $14; 13% This single-vineyard wine comes from King Valley’s Banksdale Vineyard. It gets minimal oak treatment in the winery so the vineyard shines through. Full of white stonefruit, cantaloupe rind and citrus flavours, it’s fresh and lively in the mouth, with a delightful creaminess to its texture. ● Enjoy with \ Roast chicken

THE DRINK \ Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and milkshakes.

THE VERDICT

first dined at Marmara years ago, having returned from a trip to Istanbul. Everything hit the mark, until we got to Turkish coffees, took one salty sip and grimaced. “Maybe that’s how they do it in some regions?” I suggested, but my companion insisted on checking. “Oh no!” exclaimed the waitress, “not again!” Salt and sugar, she explained, were neighbours on the kitchen shelf and the Turkish baba on coffee sometimes mixed them up. It still makes me laugh, but something compelled me to pay them a visit recently. Their sigara boregi? Spanakopita on steroids – melty magnificence, packed with feta and spinach, encased in home-made filo. Not only have they tamed their own filo pastry – they’ve shown enough restraint to keep the ratio right: 10 per cent pastry to 90 per cent filling, thank-you. Equally impressive is the roasted red capsicum with mascarpone. So too, a plate of taramasalata, mopped with Turkish bread. Pide is like a giant pizza pocket, except there’s extra cheese inside, bleating “haloumi!” Skewered shish, kofta and sujuk (beef pepperoni) are chargrilled. For dessert, there’s mastic pudding (like a herbaceous panna cotta), baklava and kadaif. And the coffee? Sweet. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au ● 68 Chapel Street, Windsor ● 9510 6944 ● marmara.com.au

GER ARDIN LOVES …

BRUNCH \ Shopping at Prahran market on Sunday will usually start with some cheese goodness with Anthony at MAKER & MONGER and if this doesn’t cut it then HUTONG on Commercial Road is a bit of a Sunday catch-up routine with my wife Audrey. A DATE \ The one I would choose any day of the week is FRANCE-SOIR. A bottle of Burgundy selected by Pierre, a carpaccio with truffle by Geraud and some chocolate mousse – makes me feel at home every time.

QUIET DINNER \ I love Japanese cuisine, so MR MIYAGI on Chapel Street always hits the spot. Chef Kyle Doody is unpretentious and so is his food. TO SEE & BE SEEN \ You can never beat CODA and TONKA for that. We can see the Coda guys through our windows at Oter and they’re always pumping. BIG GROUP \ SAN TELMO did a fine job at my bucks’ night, with about 15 chefs at the table.

COOKING \ As far as mid-week meals go, whacking some mussels in a pot of hot stock and finely diced veggies is as easy as it gets. You don’t even have to season because the mussels give you all the briny flavour you need. Wait until the shells pop open (about 3-4 minutes), finish with olive oil (see!) and serve with crusty bread. ● LISTENING TO \ The Tim Ferriss Show  isn’t exactly food-related – in fact, it’s a fairly tenuous link, but he does speak to successful people about their routines and recurring themes seem to be mindfulness, meditation and breakfast. ●

ABOUT FLORENT Florent “Flo” Gerardin: Occasional DJ, head chef & partner at Oter

artistic director Mike Finch, who decided to move on, Circus Oz is in a period of transition. Matt says the performers have enjoyed the freedom and honesty afforded by the show’s improvised approach. But circus always has an element of the real. “Standing on someone’s shoulder isn’t an act as such. If it falls down, it really falls down, so there is an element of reality that you don’t get in theatre.” He’s aware that this can make for a tantalising show. “That’s the funny thing with circus. We practise for years and years to get this really great trick. All your peers know it’s really bloody hard, but you perform it for the audience and they go ‘mm-hmm’. You get the trick first time and they think it looks easy. But if you fail and fail and get it on the third go, the crowd goes mental.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview. com.au

he circus is back in town. Returning to its big top, Circus Oz has a new show that’s as modern as they come. But while the show is called TWENTYSIXTEEN, TWENTYSIXTEEN performer Matt Wilson says it isn’t an attempt to be cutting edge. Instead, it’s intended as a bold statement of where and what the company is, right now. “In the past few years, we’ve had some pretty strong concepts behind our shows,” Matt says. “This year, we’ve just said, ‘Maybe we should improvise’. I think this is one of the most honest and real Circus Oz shows in years.” This focus on identity is no coincidence. Having recently lost

There’s a whiff of Harry Potter and His Dark Materials to this fantastical thriller, but its greatest debt is to Dickens. It’s his world and characters Smoke summons up, but with a twist – in this world, the people belch more smoke than the factories do. This is a world where sin is visible. The worse the thought or deed, the blacker the smoke that seeps from mouth, nose and skin. Vivid and compelling, its ideas are as big as its heart. ● HEAR

WIN!

On his third album, British singer Jake Bugg gets adventurous. While his baseline is still a Dylan-esque brand of urban folk, here he’s embracing ecstatic dance pop, Burt Bacharach ballads and Beastie Boys-style rap ((Ain’t No Rhyme). He’s clearly having a bit more fun, even if it seems to be a party for one. Underneath the more colourful clothing, Jake is still blues to the bone. Tickets are selling fast for his Melbourne show, at the Palais Theatre on July 27. ●

Versailles, Trapped, The Secret \ SBS On Demand, from June 16 sbs.com.au/ondemand

SBS is ensuring there’s no reason to leave the couch until spring, with three big Euro dramas available to binge on. The Secret is a British thriller in which a respectable dentist and Sunday-school teacher embark on a murderous affair. Unlike most crime series, this is told from the killer’s perspective. Trapped is a gripping mystery set on an Icelandic fjord. Most irresistible, however, is Versailles – a lavish $50-million political drama set in 17th-Century France. ●

By The Sea \ DVD, Blu-ray and Digital bytheseamovie.com.au

Written and directed by Angelina Jolie, this is an earnest tribute to European cinema of the 1960s and ’70s. A faded glamour couple (Angelina and husband Brad Pitt) take shelter in a tiny French seaside town. They drink. They argue. They obsess over the sexually charged couple next door. Not much else happens, but there’s a simmering sense of imminent danger. Plus, there’s a certain frisson for the audience in reading between the lines for a glimpse of Brangelina’s home life. ● MB

I love St Kilda East

(STEPHEN McKENZIE)

Hospitality guru Tommy McIntosh is one-third of the brains trust behind Melbourne boutique catering business Tommy Collins, which has been responsible for opening a string of popular eateries around Melbourne, including Brighton’s Little Ox and South Yarra’s South Central. Their latest project, The Hamptons, is a bakery which is due to open in Hampton in July. Tommy lives in East St Kilda with his wife Jenna, two-year-old son Alfie and their staffy Billie. Where do you go for a great coffee? Las Chicas has been a great spot for years. Soldier On is good, and Wall Two 80 and Batch Espresso are great institutions. For a new outfit? Oscar Hunt are awesome for tailored stuff. It’s a really cool experience – you go and drink scotch on a Chesterfield. They’re handsome well-dressed dudes, all with their own style. I get my odds and ends at Declic, like pocket squares and bowties.

For a gift for your best friend? I’ve bought [my business partner] Ben Avramides some good gifts throughout the years. We used to try to outdo each other, but now we’ve got kids it’s usually dinner out at somewhere like Attica. Most of our business ideas are formed over an aged Riesling and a charcuterie board. For a sneaky takeaway? Saigon Street or Uncle both have good Vietnamese food. We always get pizza from Mr Wolf – they’ve got a cabbage, pea, mint and chilli salad that’s awesome tucked into a slice of pizza. For a good bottle of wine? Armadale Cellars has excellent wine knowledge. It’s good to go somewhere where the people know what they’re selling. For a good book? I love cookbooks. Chef’s Hat has got a pretty good range. I’m currently cooking from Bistronomy and Yotam Ottolenghi’s new one, Nopi. ● CLAIRE SLATTERY

THREE BLIND MICE SALON

The promise Ever spent an hour or two fussing with the hair straightener or battling with the teasing comb in the hope of improving your do for that special event? Well there’s a better way. Put down the hairspray and make an appointment at the beautiful Three Blind Mice hair salon, which will soon be expanding to the upstairs level of their Burwood Road building. The reality I’m greeted by my stylist, Ashlea, who shows me to my chair. My hair is in a weird in-between phase at the moment – growing out from a bob. I tell Ashlea I don’t want too much cut off, but it does need a trim as the ends are getting rather ratty. In terms of the style, I’ve always wanted to do that cool short wavy curl thing al la Jennifer Lawrence, but I can’t ever get my dead-straight hair to behave. First things first – my hair is washed. The salon’s wash sinks are comfy to lean back into and the chairs recline and even massage your back as the stylist massages your scalp. Next Ashlea does her thing and checks with me every step of the way to make sure I’m

comfortable with how much she’s cutting off. She styles my hair exactly as I was describing and I walk out feeling celebrity-ish. The pay-off The little details such as hanging up your jacket, offering you a drink and the personalised service that won’t have you sitting in the chair for hours getting uncomfortable, are what sets this salon apart. The pain factor None whatsoever. The bill A cut, blow-dry and style starts at $78 and will take about an hour. More complicated cuts start at $86.

“We specialise in Tasmanian timbers and hand-crafted furniture” – Eamonn Regan, owner

Nature’s Secret is a furniture and homewares store that designs and manufactures beautiful wares from Tasmanian timber. Who’s behind the counter? Eamonn Regan opened the store in Richmond in 1999 after discovering the beauty of Tasmanian timber. The business has also “blossomed into Armadale”, as Eamonn puts it, with the opening of a second store four years ago. “We’re a family business, so we’re great to deal with,” he says, explaining that the store’s focus is on Australian-made furniture that is both stylish and timeless. What’s in store? Along with hand-crafted timber furniture, including dining tables, coffee tables, beds and cabinets, Nature’s Secret offers everything else to get your interior looking on-trend. That includes a wide range of accessories. “We now have a good range of lighting, homewares, cushions and accent pieces,” Eamonn says.

Tasmanian timber: Furniture and interior pieces showcase the beauty of wood. (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

And a custom design service … “If they see anything here in store, and it doesn’t fit or they want it in a different timber, we can do that.”

Who’s buying? Locals from the Armadale area as well as those from surrounding suburbs. “We have a broad range of customers. We have a lot of apartment dwellers now – that’s a booming part of Melbourne. We have a lot of trade from retirees as well,” Eamonn says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

TRAILBLAZERS HIT THE VALLEY THE Q7 @ OAKRIDGE

(CHRIS KERR \ SUPPLIED)

T

here’s something nostalgic about road trips; a familiar sway of the road, whirring wheels, trees and hills rushing by. My childhood weekends were spent napping between wineries and towns as my parents explored the countryside in our puce-hued station wagon. The only “tech” back then was the “tech-nique” of winding down the windows - a whole shouldered affair. Fast-forward 15 years and I still spend most weekends road-tripping, often to wineries, but cars have come a long way. Today I’m in an Audi Q7, a seven-seater sofa on wheels, which would be perfect for 2.3 kids, a dog and a set of golf clubs in the back, comfortably pulling into school zones on leafy Melbourne streets. But, in the absence of 2.3 kids, I’m taking this baby off-road. Winding through the Black Spur, getting lost on “short-cuts” up a dirt track (and down again), through the vines of the Yarra Valley. Things have changed in the Yarra Valley. Dining offerings have expanded significantly, with tree-changing food-lovers bringing city sensibilities, opening chic places such as Herd Cafe & Bar in Healesville (the eggplant chips!) and upping the fine-dining game with Ezard @ Levantine Hill. There’s still the sense of tradition, of course. Wandering downstairs at Chateau

Yering Historic House Hotel feels like you’ve stepped into a 19th-century painting. Sleeping arrangements are equally themed, with claw-foot baths and french-doored balconies opening to morning views of misty hills. At Seville Estate, winemaker Dylan McMahon honours his grandfather Dr Peter McMahon’s memory with a barrel of wine (the “Dr McMahon”) using original plantings from the ’70s. Dylan had planned on being an electronic engineer before the lees in his blood lured him back, so he’s keener than most to see what the Q7 can do. So soon we’re climbing the slick red mud of the adjoining vineyard, visions of the insurance excess flashing before my eyes. In a blink, the Audi’s Quattro system engages and smoothly delivers us to the tip of the vines. I reach the crest. “Put the hill descent on!” cries Dylan with glee and the car guides itself down without a hitch. The future! But it’s the future of the valley that is most exciting, with trailblazers cropping up everywhere. There’s sustainably sourced caviar at multi-award-winning Yarra Valley Caviar, where Nick Gorman and Mark Fox (Gormo and Foxy to anyone who spends more than a minute with them) are cultivating salmon and trout that each year are naturally anaesthetised with clove oil, then massaged by hand to expel their

precious tangerine-hued “caviar”, before being returned to the water for another year. Fresh things are afoot also at Yarra Valley Dairy, where chief cheese-maker Jack Holman has applied skills he built up around the globe to help turn this into one of Victoria’s most established dairies. One of Jack’s creations, a gin-infused hard cheese, uses the by-product botanicals from Four Pillars Gin, innovators in their own right and a recent addition to the Yarra Valley landscape. This spirit of collaboration is a feature of the region. Jack has also helped the young chefs at Oakridge – Matt Stone and Jo Barrett – get acquainted with the local delights that abound. Oakridge’s Forager dinner, the result of a week’s worth of hunting and gathering, is a revelation, featuring dishes such as fiddlehead fern with honey and sheep’s sorrel, roadside greens, cured venison on edible pepperberry skewers and an absolutely divine dessert of macadamia, juniper and cumquat. A perfect finale to our trip, this meal is a glimpse into the future of the valley, if not the future of food, encapsulating sustainability, provenance and collaboration. ● ALICE IN FRAMES aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

he west side of Melbourne’s CBD is becoming the must-visit luxury destination, having undergone a glamorous transformation in the past few years. Designer shops, trendy cafes, bars and new office buildings have begun to emerge, calling the area, including Spencer Street, home. Nearby, the Docklands, with its sweeping waterfront views, and Etihad Stadium – home to major sporting, music and entertainment events – are adding to the revitalisation of the area. The west side of the CBD is already being touted as the Manhattan end of town, likened to one of New York’s most exclusive areas. But could it possibly become Melbourne’s new Paris end? This question could be answered with the newest arrival to Melbourne’s CBD – West Side Place: a glamorous new apartment development at 250 Spencer Street – the former site of The Age newspaper – which will feature 2600 luxury apartments underneath the equally glamorous Ritz-Carlton hotel. The hotel will be a first for Melbourne, not only because it’s the first time the Ritz-Carlton will have a Melbourne address. It is also set to become the tallest (and

The Ritz-Carlton and West Side Place promise to become the new heart of Melbourne, offering a luxury hotel lifestyle for buyers wanting to live in the centre of the CBD, or for international travellers wanting a glamorous getaway to experience plenty of designer shopping and restaurants with gourmet food.

The development will also bring the creation of a new laneway between Lonsdale and Little Lonsdale streets. This laneway, dotted with restaurants, shops and bars, will take inspiration from other famous Melbourne laneways, including nearby Hardware and Goldsbrough lanes.

elina Bagnato leapt into the limelight when she first appeared on Channel Seven’s My Kitchen Rules in 2013. These days she works as a personal stylist (stylemeover.com) and speaker. She lives in a two-storey home in Patterson Lakes with her husband Scott and children, Jordyn, 4, and Harvey, 19 months. The house is filled with sentimental photographs, ornaments and artwork (such as a zebra print from Kmart). Melina loves the open living space and curved stairwell to a central atrium. Built in the 1980s, the white house sits on the sandy banks of the lake, which adds to its meditative mood. Melina remembers swimming in a friend’s pool as a teen and wishing she could one day buy a house in the area. Five years later, she bought a home in the same street. “I made a wish and it came true. I put it out there and it happened,” she says. “I love being so close to the lake, it’s really relaxing and a great place to live.” ● JANE ROCCA jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au

hen it comes to drama, few design collections can match the innovative vibe of Moooi. Established in 2001 by wunderkind designer Marcel Wanders and co-founder Casper Vissers, the furniture and lighting brand celebrates the daring, unique and exaggerated with a playful sensibility that is ultimately rooted in the classic and timeless. Their products are joyous and full of personality. Jon Holland of Space Furniture, which stocks Moooi, gives us five great tips on styling for dramatic effect.

LIGHTING

Over-scaled floor lamps create strong visual interest. They can almost become pieces of art.

COLOUR

Use warm, muted tones on the walls, then add hints of sharp, contrasting colours to help the room come to life.

TEXTURE

Mix contrasting textures with soft, organic tones to add layers to a room.

S PA T I A L F L O W

PA T T E R N S

Play with traditional and non-traditional patterns. Use over-scaled floor rugs in unexpected colour combinations. ● mtay@theweeklyreview.com.au » Space Furniture: spacefurniture.com.au » Moooi: moooi.com

Placement of room dividers and storage systems is important as they can lead the eye to interesting detail on shelves.

THE BUILD

(SUPPLIED)

eading custom home builder Carter Grange has tailored a luxury double-storey family home specifically to suit Waverley’s new home buyers. The Waverley 57 showcases Carter Grange’s adaptable approach, translating an ideal checklist for Waverley home buyers into a classic family home with an intelligent floor plan and a range of contemporary features. Behind its classic mansion-style facade the Waverley 57 offers five bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes, three indoor and two outdoor living areas including an expansive family zone and a smartly conceived kitchen with adjoining butler’s pantry. The ground-level bedroom and an adjoining lounge create a welcoming guest apartment within the home. Upstairs, the main bedroom is a sumptuous sanctuary with an enormous walk-in wardrobe and en suite and an idyllic private terrace. The 526-square metre home has an all-inclusive price tag of $675,381 (excluding site costs) for blocks with a minimum 16.05-metre width. Brian and Carole Taylor of Mount Waverley were the first to build the Waverley 57. They wanted to create an elite family home featuring all of the elements most sought after by Waverley families. “We spoke to people who had built their own homes to understand how to build with lasting value. We visited display and open homes and spoke to agents to pinpoint new housing trends in our area and find the best builder. Our local real estate agent was building with Carter Grange and we took his recommendation,” Carole says. Brian says that from day one they haven’t been able to fault Carter Grange.

“Everything we have wanted they have provided. They are approachable and professional. The Carter Grange team led us through the whole process with little stress.” Brian and Carole say they were delighted at the quality of Carter Grange’s standard inclusions but decided to upgrade certain features to achieve an ultimate in luxury such as marble mosaic bathroom splashbacks,

feature tiling, pure wool carpet, 2pac joinery, Miele kitchen appliances, French oak floorboards and 2.74-metre ground-level ceilings. They also added extra conveniences such as a shoe and coat cupboard in the entrance hall and plumbing for an outdoor kitchen with gas barbecue. ● LIZ McLACHLAN lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au

FLEDGLING HAWK NEST 14 LY L NDHURST CRESCENT, HAWTHORN, 3122

T

he buyer of this double-fronted Hawthorn house will be kicking big goals – and not just because the property comes with all the bells and whistles. The house, totally rebuilt from front to back, could be “the most Hawthorn of Hawthorn houses”. That’s because 14 Lyndhurst Crescent was once home for country or interstate recruits who joined the Hawks. And Peter Hudson was the biggest of the lot at Hawthorn. “Huddo”, regarded as one of the greatest full-forwards in the game’s history, played 129 games for Hawthorn, starting in 1967. His goal average of 5.64 is the highest in VFL/AFL history. He stayed at the Lyndhurst Crescent house when he arrived from Tasmania in 1967. Nearly five decades on, chances are Peter Hudson wouldn’t recognise his former residence. Builder Rohan Lane and his wife Ruth have created a spectacular home from the run-down Victorian they moved into six years ago. Architect Drew Cole worked with the couple to completely rebuild and extend the house into a state-of-the-art, two-storey home. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms (including two en suites), a powder room, study, retreat, and breathtaking family area and kitchen. A resort-style back garden with swimming pool and crazy-paved outdoor dining area complete the picture. When a builder builds his own home, the results are usually top-rate. No expense was spared to make this house a winner. It’s stylish, smart and low-maintenance. Interiors are predominantly white and grey, with the exception of the main bedroom where a midnight-blue feature wall is a stand-out. All bedrooms have fashionable grey carpet under-foot. Smoked American oak floorboards, bespoke timber cabinetry and gas open fireplaces are more features. The house has a typical Victorian layout of rooms off a central hall. They include the main bedroom with its marble-finished en suite and dressing room, a living room, a second bedroom with en suite and a powder room. The design changes dramatically at the study, which

connects the front of the house to the open-plan rear. The study, which can be closed off by sliding cavity doors, has a built-in desk beneath large windows that overlook a deck. The family living hub is made up of a dining area, a living room with gas fireplace and a light-filled kitchen. The stone benchtop is 1200 millimetres wide and 4.2 metres long. Two Miele underbench ovens and an induction cooktop could be enough to send even the most reluctant cook heading to the pots and pans. Overhead cabinets reach to ceiling height and there is a walk-in pantry at one end of the kitchen. At the other end, a large window provides a clear view of what’s happening in the pool and garden. Bifold glass doors open the living area to the back garden and pool. Inside again, an open-tread staircase with glass balustrade leads from the study to the carpeted first-floor retreat, two children’s bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedroom at the back of the house has views past the trees and surrounding rooftops to local landmarks such as the spire of the Auburn Uniting Church and Swinburne University. Peter Hudson last week recalled his time with the Cavell family of Lyndhurst Crescent. “I stayed there twice when I came to Melbourne in 1967 and lived there for three months before my wife and I got married,” he said. “The Cavells were amazing people. They had four children of their own and there would have always been four or five players in bungalows out the back and Mrs Cavell always had the house looking beautiful. “Mrs Cavell was wonderful. We’d leave our dirty football clothes after training and when we came back from our jobs she would have had all the gear washed, ironed and folded on our beds for the next day.” Mrs Cavell wouldn’t know the old place now but no doubt she would relish the fancy indoor laundry almost as much as its whiz-bang appliances. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

KEW \ 8 TARA AVENUE It’s easy to understand why this 1930s house has had only three owners. In a quiet avenue, the house is on a corner block and benefits from a wide street frontage with north-west orientation. Behind a lush front garden, steps lead down to the entrance, which has a sheltered porch. Wide corridors lined with polished timber floors open to large rooms. To the right of the entry is a spacious living room with garden views. From the art deco fireplace to the picture windows and decorative glass doors, this lounge has many pretty aspects. The rear section has contemporary finishes and fixtures without sacrificing the style and proportion of the original architecture. A generous marble-topped island bench is a great space to do homework or have a glass of wine while chatting to the cook. The kitchen also has a Lacanche oven, soft-closing cabinetry and a walk-in butler’s pantry with a second sink and preparation area. Glass doors slide back to a terrace decked out with a steel awning covered in vines. The design features of the kitchen are echoed in the laundry, which has a powder room and external access. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and outlooks across the treetops. The front bedroom, the only one with polished floorboards, offers panoramic views of the city. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

This exceptional art deco-inspired house has been built and occupied by the same family since the 1950s. Its interior places great importance on natural light, with floor-to-ceiling windows starring in each of the main living spaces. Off the entry, the combined dining and lounge room is bright and comforting. Its full-height windows capture a northerly perspective across the rear garden, while carpet underfoot and a fireplace on the east wall keep things toasty. Next door, the kitchen and meals zone has stainless-steel appliances, tiled flooring and stone benchtops. The meals area leads into a huge family room with polished timber floors, split-system air-conditioning and an impressive amount of north- and east-facing glazing. Back at the front of the house, there are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. One is the main with an en suite. Outside, lovingly tended gardens surround the house. A large stone patio, reached from the meals area, steps down to a double garage at the rear of the block. ● JULIAN HEALEY

SOUTH YARRA \ 18.2/193 DOMAIN ROA R D Domain Park was one of only two apartment towers to be built under the 1954 Plan for Melbourne. This one, overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens, was designed by renowned architect Robin Boyd. The tower has always been one of Melbourne’s most glamorous addresses. Although carefully conserved, the eastern penthouse would be unrecognisable to Boyd today. A richly moulded front door gives a hint as to what awaits within. The room layout is unchanged but antique-style cabinetry, rich wallpapers and mini chandeliers have given the apartment a new/old character. The apartment’s three main rooms enjoy magnificent views and north exposure, while service areas are ranged along its southern side. The elegantly proportioned sitting/dining room has balconies on its north and east; the latter offers generous entertainment space. The main double bedroom has a dressing room and bathroom, while a second, single bedroom is adjacent to a compartmentalised bathroom – a unique feature in its time. The kitchen, laundry and bathrooms contain many original fittings and finishes. This apartment could again become one of the city’s best penthouses. Its position and its views are unsurpassed but it also provides security: a resident manager and lift access to its reserved car spaces. Domain Village and the No. 8 tram are nearby. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

Sporting a majestic facade, this luxurious three-level family house is as impressive as they come. Inside, a wide central hallway has matte parquetry floors that extend to the living spaces and kitchen at the back. Just inside the entry are a carpeted study with built-in shelves and a bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Nearby are a powder room and laundry, as well as a four-person lift offering effortless access to the other two floors. Next, a carpeted living room provides a quiet space to relax while, behind that, the spacious family area and adjoining sunroom are open and bright. A skylit kitchen overlooks these zones and features a large butler’s pantry. Below, the basement has a five-car garage, carpeted cinema and wine cellar. Above, on the top floor, are the rest of the bedrooms. At one end is the main, with private balcony and opulent en suite with steam-room shower.

FAIRFIELD \ 45 MCGREGOR STREET Pity the frantic motorists on Station Street who blink and miss the dirt track of McGregor Street. Residents know it turns into a “proper” road at Sparks Avenue but the initial trick keeps this sliver of Fairfield free from shoppers seeking parking. It’s here that builder Kath Fisher bought and renovated a 1910s house in 2000. Then she bought the block next door. The house Fisher built on these 725 square metres is of rammed earth and recycled red brick, lined with blackbutt timber, and oriented for passive solar benefits. There’s a study and a double garage at the front, main bedroom in the middle, and two bedrooms, the laundry and huge, open-plan living, dining and kitchen area at the rear. Courtyards provide light to bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen – even the laundry. The study has fitted bookshelves, cupboards and a desk. The adjacent hall has windows to the garden. Through glass doors from the hall is the main bedroom, with a dressing room and an en suite. Turn down the corridor to find the main bathroom, with tub and shower, and two double bedrooms with sliding-door wardrobes. The communal area, 16 metres wide, has a timber skillion ceiling, terrazzo floor and siding doors to the deck. The kitchen makes a chic backdrop; it has white cabinetry against a lime-green splashback, a stone island bench and a walk-in pantry. ● ALISON BARCLAY

From the street, this semi-detached Victorian house looks petite, but looks can be deceptive. A smart two-storey extension makes the most of the block. First impressions are traditional enough, with a hallway with a corbelled arch, high ceiling and polished floorboards. There are two original bedrooms at the front of the house with ceiling roses, plantation shutters and built-in wardrobes. Then it gets interesting. The main bedroom is at the rear, with an en suite and built-in wardrobe. It’s awash with light from a decked yard, which also provides off-street parking thanks to a roller door. In the middle of this level are a study nook and home office. There’s also a bright bathroom with huge shower and separate tub on this level, plus a laundry and storage. Upstairs, the open-plan living and dining area is divided by a stone kitchen with breakfast bar. Bifold doors open to a north-facing balcony. At the front of the house, french doors lead to another balcony, with views of the Melbourne Star through trees. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

All the ingredients for long-term family satisfaction come together in this house on the high side of a no-through street and metres from Wilsons Road Reserve. Proximity to schools, shops, the Eastern Freeway and the park-and-ride depot eases the load for all generations. Twenty years of ownership by one family mean the house has been lovingly preserved and stylishly renovated where it matters most. The neo-classical facade is handsome in textured brick. Polished hardwood floors glow in living areas, while the bedrooms have grey carpet. Off the foyer, the large lounge has a cutaway to the dining room. The recently revamped kitchen has an earthy look, with dark-granite benchtops on timber cabinetry. Two sets of glass doors open the adjoining meals and family areas to the outdoors, where a room wired for sound and a heated pool backed by a deck have entertaining covered. Upstairs, the main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. ● KAY KEIGHERY

BRUNSWICK \ 1 WALTERS STREET Conservation is a beautiful thing but architects Andrew and Miranda Borg couldn’t afford to indulge too much of that when renovating their block-fronted Victorian cottage. “I was pulling out the stumps with my bare hands, they were that rotten,” Andrew says of the massive rebuild. Now restumped, replumbed, replastered and reroofed, this effectively new, two-storey house is an ideal base for families keen to stay in the inner city. Bamboo floorboards, solar panels and north-facing windows shore up the environmental benefits, as does the walkability to Anstey station and Brunswick North Primary. Against sober grey paintwork and tiles and black tapware, the Borgs have made a splash with terrazzo flooring dotted with blue, green and aquamarine glass. There are bedrooms in pink and turquoise, and the kitchen and bathroom are in electric blue. Artist David Hobday made the front door’s glass panel. The rear living area is visually energising, its exposed-brick walls contrasting with the terrazzo and the kitchen, sleek in the blue with black benchtops and a 900-millimetre gas cooktop, Smeg oven and walk-in pantry. A trifold door links this space with the lawn and garage, which has ROW and a studio on top. There are three bedrooms, two upstairs with a tiled bathroom, and the main downstairs with a walk-in wardrobe behind the en suite. ● ALISON BARCLAY

Around the corner from Gasworks Park, this house has had a clever renovation that POSTCODE maximises space. The floor plan is straightforward, with two bedrooms opening from the hallway. The first bedroom has a big window overlooking the street. The second has a skylight above the bed. The big showpiece is the rear open-plan living and dining area, which opens through bifold doors to a bluestone-paved courtyard. The streamlined kitchen is part of this space. It has white benchtops with black joinery, a design formula echoed in both bathrooms. Above the staircase, clerestory windows introduce light. The main bedroom suite, with large walk-in wardrobe and en suite, is upstairs. A study nook here opens to a rooftop terrace that adds another option for outdoor entertainment. The house has a garage accessed from Barrett Lane. There’s a studio space with kitchenette above it, and a separate toilet downstairs. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

Executive couples and families up for modern living might meet their matches in this Vincent Interlandi-designed, whole-floor penthouse looking over a reserve and within a slingshot of transport, schools, shops, cafes and the beach. Take the lift direct to the apartment, where a foyer leads to a powder room and the main bedroom, with dressing room and luxurious en suite. A hall under a sloping ceiling leads to two more bedrooms, the main bathroom with walk-in shower and a laundry. The kitchen is a delight in marble and mirrored surfaces that complement European appliances, including a coffee machine. The living area invites gatherings around a sophisticated gas fireplace. Industrial-looking glass doors link the interior with a wraparound, semi-covered terrace sized for serious entertaining. There’s a bright study on the lower level. Behind the basement car spaces and connected to them by a roller door is another large room, ideal for a home theatre or perhaps a prized vintage vehicle. ● KAY KEIGHERY

CAULFIELD NORTH \ 117-119 KOOYONG ROAD What this house does with Crema Marfil limestone, granite and onyx makes traditionally favoured marble seem so yesterday. What it promises outside is enviable entertaining with negligible upkeep. The technology is a case of “hello next century”, while interior design by Rina Cohen catapults family living into the uber-stylish category. The house was built for the owners and no expense was spared. High fencing on the double corner block of about 1163 square metres means the site is secluded. A slice of the northern land area is dedicated to artificial lawn, a pool and an indoor/outdoor terrace. The interior looks like a gallery but closer inspection reveals function to be as satisfying as form. Ceilings soar over heated floor tiles. Bespoke storage appears at every turn. Lighting is both bold and subtle, with the dining-room chandelier creating a glamorous focus. Sweeping lounge and dining areas, open-plan kitchen, meals and living areas, a family room, study, two powder rooms, laundry, bathroom and garage make up ground level. Dual staircases link downstairs with the first floor, where a bridge connecting the front and rear wings offers visions of the living spaces below. Occupying the front wing, the main suite has a dressing room, en suite with spa-jet shower, built-in bed bracketed by drawers, and doors to a balcony. ● KAY KEIGHERY

EAGLEMONT \ 14 CUMBERLAND STREET A once-middle-of-theroad bungalow has been transformed into a luxurious and sophisticated house that holds its own with the best of Eaglemont. Most of the original 1937 facade remains but with two new stucco-clad gables. Beyond the laughing kookaburras that bedeck the double-door entrance, the house is essentially new. Inspired by its interwar origins, the front rooms have high decorative ceilings with antique-style light fittings. The lounge has a burly fireplace and double doors leading to a sitting room, just as in the days of yore. The aesthetic, while classic and restrained, is contemporary. Clean, white lines contrast with polished boards in the wide hallway. Like the front rooms, the family hub has high ceilings and feature windows. The kitchen combines timber and white cabinets, cloudy white stone benches and stainless-steel appliances. It is bolstered by a butler’s pantry with its own oven, sink and space for a second fridge. For summer cooking, the outdoor kitchen is a practical alternative. Upstairs is the ultimate kids-only area. Three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes open to a central retreat with views across Eaglemont rooftops. The main bathroom is also here. Even the cars live in the lap of luxury in dual separate garages; one with rear access and room for a boat. ● LIAM CARTER

This brick Edwardian terrace house is impeccably preserved. The facade features a fretwork-adorned verandah and a broad bay window with an arrow-head grill. Detail on the front gable is picked out in honey tones. A long, wide entrance hall, with more period details, leads to a wall of glass at the rear of the house, making for plenty of natural light. Of two large bedrooms up front, one has the bay window and the other looks onto a lightwell. This one also has a built-in wardrobe and an ornate, timber-mantelled fireplace with deep red tiles. A third, smaller bedroom has green carpet. In the bathroom, midnight-blue floor tiles contrast with the red swirl of the vanity. There’s another fireplace in the large lounge. A similarly spacious kitchen has a tiled benchtop and dark veneer cabinetry. A bifold servery opens to a wood-panelled lounge/dining room at the rear. It has a textural ceiling with exposed beams. There’s a laundry to one side. The paved backyard has a pergola and shed. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

When people think of Ivanhoe, great schools and gorgeous architecture are often the first things that come to mind. This Queen Anne house, in a cul-de-sac just across the road from the coveted Ivanhoe Primary School, is therefore quintessentially Ivanhoe. Two stained-glass box windows frame a delightful front verandah crowned by twin fretwork arches and stucco-clad gables. Inside, the front rooms retain their period grandeur. The three bedrooms by the entrance enjoy 3.6-metre ceilings. They share a super-sized bathroom with shower, spa and clawfoot bath. Built in 1914, the house was restumped in 2002, rewired and plumbed in 2005, and extended in 2012. A big family hub now makes up almost half of the floor plan. A clever dividing wall separates the meals and living spaces. The kitchen has a stone island bench and European appliances. The north-facing deck overlooks a pretty backyard. The 600-square-metre block has a side driveway for parking. ● LIAM CARTER
