driving a little runabout so nondescript I have trouble recognising it in a car park, roaring around in a growling, gleaming red muscle car was quite a change of pace. But it wasn’t just my wheels that changed. Every time I got into that look-at-me car, it was as if I became a different person. I felt bolder, more self-assured – and a good 10 years younger. It got me thinking about how our personalities tend to shape-shift depending on what we’re doing, who we’re with and, it seems, what we’re driving. It’s a phenomenon our cover star, Mick Malthouse, says has given us all the wrong impression about him. After decades of being known as the unsmiling, hard man of the AFL, he insists it was all just a mask he had to put on to do his job. Underneath, he says, he’s really a softie.

8 The weekly review \ JULY 20, 2016
he misconceptions about Michael Malthouse are many. He’s abrupt … abrasive … demanding … But the neatly dressed man who arrives at The Weekly Review studio for our photo shoot and interview is anything but. Michael (as he prefers to be called) has just walked from his home near the MCG to Southbank – walking is his preferred mode of transport – and he apologises for being a few minutes late. Friendly and relaxed, his face breaks into a warm smile when he chats about his family – especially the six grandchildren who obviously have “Pa” wrapped around their tiny fingers. “I guess most people saw me at the office and my office was a coach’s box or a press conference. It was an intense job because most of the time a football environment is very intense,” he says. “In that environment I always go to another level. I cross that line and become someone else – I know that. Players call it white line fever. People see you like that and judge you like that. I am very focused when I’m on the job. I wasn’t a great player, but I played 12 years of football because I had that intensity. I coached for 30 years because people trusted me with their teams and players and because I still had that intensity. “But when I am home I’m just dad or pa and I’m scared stiff of my daughter, Dani, and her daughter, Holly – and she’s only six! She’s telling me what to do right now and has been since she was four!” he says, laughing. Last school holidays, he arranged a series of get-togethers for his four children and his grandchildren – aged from one to seven. There’s no doubt family comes first for the coaching stalwart and his wife of 40-plus years, Nanette. “We took the oldest two granddaughters for brunch and to the matinee of The Sound of Music recently. They knew all the songs and they were singing along in the theatre. They were right into it – oh God,” he laughs, shaking his head. “I am loving this stage of my life. I am not here to work eight days a week now. I want to travel more and enjoy my time with my kids and their kids. Nanette and I are going to Europe on a river cruise later in the year because it was one thing she always wanted to do when I retired. We’re both looking forward to that.” Michael’s coaching career spanned three decades, during which he coached more VFL and AFL games than anyone else. But retirement came under controversial circumstances in May last year when he was called into the office of Carlton chief executive Steven Triggs and told his contract was being terminated. His severance came after weeks of speculation that left his wife in tears and his children feeling hurt and frustrated. “My family feels a little cheated in some respects because my career finished the way it did,” he says frankly. “They know how much time and effort you put in – your heart and soul – and to have it finish like that, to be told you’re a failure in the media, of course that affected them. “But I’ve tried to look at the entirety of my
career rather than just May last year. And you get reminders of that from time to time. I went to the football a few weeks ago and a Collingwood fan came up to me and said, ‘Thanks for 2010 – it was one of the most magical moments of my life’. And to think you were part of that, well, that’s fantastic. “And recently, when someone commented that I must be disappointed with the way things ended, a young girl in her 20s who overheard the conversation said, ‘You can’t take the legend away from what you’ve done’. “I did the best job I possibly could but, to be honest, I have failed dismally to arrive at any point in time that has satisfied me. I never got to the top of the mountain. I was satisfied the journey had finished for me as a player, but as a coach I never sat and looked over the meadow and thought, now I can smell the roses. But I don’t think I would have ever felt I’d achieved what I wanted to achieve, even if I’d won a premiership every year.”
e has strong views on Australia’s ageist attitudes. A fit and energetic figure in his early 60s, he believes as a youth-obsessed society we fail to appreciate life experience and skills accrued over decades. “I’ve never felt old but we have a shocking habit of thinking people are old and, as a consequence, they are dismissed,” he says. “I see it now first-hand. You run in to a younger person somewhere and talk and they’re looking over your shoulder. You walk off – I’ve done that – and they don’t even notice you are missing. We have the mindset that if you are old, you are past it. That’s just crazy.”
Dream makers: Leigh Russell, Michael Malthouse, Ben Dixon & Darren Burgess, cast of The Recruit. (MARTIN PHILBEY)
for a couple of days. “For me the up-side was dealing with young blokes who are not in any of the major football systems at all and there was an opportunity to do something for those on the cusp.” As filming took him across the country, testing the mettle of the footballing hopefuls, he relished time on the road – particularly the episodes that took him to more remote parts of the country. “I loved Tasmania. I love the isolation and its bare nature – I should be a tourism ambassador for Tassie because I’ve pumped it up to everyone for the past 20 years.”
“At home I’m just Dad or Pa. I’m scared stiff of my granddaughter – & she’s only six!” But he remains pragmatic, always looking forward. His experience and professionalism ensured that, post-Carlton, the opportunities soon came knocking. He has dabbled in media presenting with Channel Seven and 3AW, set up a fledgling leadership business, Keen Edge, with Collingwood’s former sports science director David Buttifant, and he is a key figure in the second series of FOX8’s The Recruit, which goes to air later this month. The reality football show follows 15 as-yet-undiscovered players from around the country as they live and play together to win the life-changing prize of a guaranteed place on an AFL list. Michael is the head coach who motivates and mentors the young contestants. Each week he also has to decide who will pack their bags and go home. It’s not always easy. “It’s brutal,” he says. “For any coach, the end of the year when you have to cut players from the list is the worst time and it never gets any easier. You’re the dream maker and the dream breaker. But I reminded myself that these young blokes were being given a chance and they all know there can only be one winner.” He says when the call came “out of the blue” to be part of the show he mulled it over
It was easy for him to empathise with the contestants who live and breathe football and are eager for their lucky break. He grew up in the working class Ballarat suburb of Wendouree in a family that had plenty of love but not many material comforts.
t eight he discovered footy and joined Wendouree West and then North Ballarat clubs. In 1972 he joined St Kilda, playing 53 games before signing with Richmond mid-way through the 1976 season. He played six finals for the Tigers before hanging up his boots in 1983. The following year he was appointed senior coach of Footscray – the beginning of an impressive coaching career that took him to Perth with the West Coast Eagles in 1990, to Collingwood in 2000 and to Carlton in 2013. Along the way he took the Eagles to the finals every season, winning Premierships in 1992 and 1994, and in 2010 he led Collingwood to win the flag. When asked what it takes to be a top performer in footy, he doesn’t hesitate. “I believe strongly in three things. Firstly, ambition or want – are players ambitious enough to succeed? Secondly I look at
determination; it’s OK to have a goal but are you determined enough to pursue it? And then there’s resilience because you will get knocked on your backside more often than not. Are you ready to fail and to get up again?” He says he has always been brutally honest to players and their families about the high price of playing football. “I always promised parents that their boys would leave better than when they walked in to a club because we rob those kids of their lives,” he says bluntly. “We demand excellence – dietary and physical excellence and mental excellence and their time. I’ve seen players come in at 18 and they don’t know much about life or the game. By 20 or 21 they are dead-set smart arses! They know everything. At 26 or 27 they marry and at 28 or 29 they have children. They’ve got their house, their life is in order and by 30 they retire and wonder what they are going to do because not everyone will end up working for Channel Seven or coaching. “That is the fearful time for me because I’ve seen so many people with their lifestyle, and suddenly the private school fees can’t be paid, there are pressures on the marriage, they’re not part of a football club anymore and I see players who can’t come to grips with normal, standard life – not all of them, but far too many.” It’s family that has helped keep Michael’s feet firmly on the ground. He credits Nanette with many of his achievements and says his children were also extremely supportive of his football career and the demands it placed on their lives. “They were always very patient and it helped that they also loved the game.” He recalls the shock of learning, on reading his daughter Christi’s book, Malthouse: A Football Life, that she had been bullied because of her father’s job and high public profile. “She hid that from me. They absorbed a lot of stress and kept it to themselves so I could continue to do what I do,” he says quietly. This year, he has in turn supported Nanette as she has undergone treatment for breast cancer. “Nanette was diagnosed in February and waited to start radiation until our youngest son, Troy, married in April this year. She’s finished now and she’s very positive and making good progress. We’re looking forward to that cruise in Europe together,” he says. There are many more family times planned as he takes a break after filming on The Recruit. There’s a family holiday this summer – with 16 of the Malthouse clan – and he’s looking forward to catching up on some reading. He’s a history buff, currently ensconced in the Roman Empire, but he also loves books on Egyptology, the first and second World Wars and the Middle Ages. So, finally, after so many years in the spotlight, is there anything we don’t know about Michael Malthouse? He laughs loudly: “Oh God. Is there really anything people don’t know? Probably not. I’ve been pretty open … I learnt that if you can’t say anything good about someone then don’t say anything at all. I don’t like bagging people … and I don’t play golf …” ● firstname.lastname@example.org » The Recruit begins on July 20 on FOX8 JULY 20, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9
Ask the wine guy I travel a lot for work and often slip Q a nice bottle in my bag, but always feel let down by hotel glasses. Do you have any tips?
Oh, snap! I’ve been travelling a lot lately and find that the glasses in hotel rooms are abysmal. Nothing ruins that nice bottle of pinot you’ve carried in hand luggage on to the plane and finally to the hotel than a small, chunky wine glass. If the hotel has a bar, ask for a wine glass – they’re invariably much better than those sitting on top of the mini bar. It may sound a little snobbish, but I’ve been known to travel with a plastic decanter and wine glass to match. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Logan Ridge of Tears Shiraz 2014 (Orange) $45; 14% My wife loved this. This is cool-climate shiraz filled with dark fruit flavours: blackberry, blueberry and blood. There’s oak, too, which in time will be absorbed into the wine. Rich and balanced, its furry tannins and bright acid are wonderfully structural and seamlessly integrated with its flavour. But it’s the drinkability that’s key – it’s effortless. ● Enjoy with \ Rare roast beef

Mount Langi Ghiran Billi Billi Shiraz 2013 (Victoria) $18; 14.4%
From the Gippsland lakes district, this wine blew me away. Firstly, it smells great. Peaches, green melon, white flower petals and struck match minerality are layered, complex and seamless. Smooth and tasty, there’s a mineral-laced line of acid that adds elegance and focus to the weight and intensity of the flavours. ●
Billi Billi’s a perennial bargain. It smells of oak, spice, cherries and plums, plus a little of a wet stone character known as petrichor. It’s composed and energetic, with a nice blend between juicy cherries and blackberries and rich, ripe plum flavours. Bright and fresh, there’s just the right amount of tannic grip to go with the wine’s easy flow. ●

BARGAIN BUY Rymill The Local Squire Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (Coonawarra) $14; 13.5% Grapes for this were grown on Coonawarra’s famed Terra Rossa soils. It smells a little meaty, with cassis, blackberry, eucalypt and vanilla aromas – and tastes the same. It’s a juicy, fruity wine that’s made to be drunk now. There’s a nice grip of tannins on the finish. ● Enjoy with \ Pizza

s I weave through the back streets to avoid brunch-time Burke Road, it occurs to me that a suburban labyrinth is an entirely apt way to get to Elyros, Camberwell’s polished, blue-ceilinged home of Cretan cuisine. Mythological birthplace of the Minotaur (also Zeus), Crete is Greece’s biggest island, known for its olive oil, wild fennel-sprinkled mountains and countless sheep and goat cheeses. Cheese is a good place to start at Elyros, enveloped into kalitsounia – traditional parcels based on the recipes of Disa, one of the owners’ mums. Their taramasalata and fava bean dip are must-haves, served with koulouria – Greek bagels – warm from the oven. You’ll have to order dessert, the bougatsa, in advance – a sweet pie dished up at the table, oozing with rich lemony custard. As for the main menu, dishes morph and new ones appear between visits. Constants are lots of wild greens and golden roasted vegetables, sustainably sourced meats (from producers such as Greenvale Farm) and finessed fish dishes such as dory with silky cauliflower puree. Expect dishes to shift fast, reflecting an inspired, seasonally driven chef with a forager on speed dial. ● email@example.com

For some book fans, the monthly gathering is more about gossip, good company and booze. Enter veteran performer Amanda Muggleton with her one-woman comedy called, you guessed it, The Book Club. “This is not an intellectual romp,” Amanda insists. “You know what I’d like to call it? Read Between the Wines.” First staged in 1999, the play was written for Amanda by New Zealand playwright Roger Hall, inspired by her legendary performance in Shirley Valentine. This new production, directed by Amanda’s longtime buddy Nadia Tass, has an updated booklist and has shed an hour from the running time. But Amanda’s intimate approach means each performance has always been unique. “People don’t believe I’ve got a script. They think I’m

While most love stories end with the couple getting hitched, philosopher Alain de Botton’s novel focuses on what comes after. Kirsten and Rabih’s courtship is dispatched in three brief chapters, with the rest dedicated to the decades following “I do”. Alain’s point is that most art fails to prepare us for long-term reality. ● WIN \ A copy of The Course of Love, thanks to Andrew’s Bookshop, Ivanhoe
Having traded in the ballot box for the boom box, Peter Garrett is back to wielding his power where it really counts. A Version of Now is Peter’s debut solo album and his first new music in 15 years.

This delightful, complex, very funny romcom from Mindy Kaling has never been predictable. Now in its fourth season, the first since it shifted networks to the looser environment of internet service Hulu, the show remains as messy as its protagonist and just as unsure about committing to a happy ending.

STEPH CLAIRE SMITH Steph Claire Smith is a model whose popularity on Instagram has boosted her career, leading to her work for brands including Tiger Mist and Australian lingerie company Intimo. She has also recently launched Keep it Clean, an online cookbook focusing on healthy eating. She lives in Balwyn which she loves for its great parks and proximity to Kew, Hawthorn and the city.
Where do you go for a special night out? Ocha in Hawthorn is delicious Japanese for a date night close to home. The eggplant dengaku with miso sauce is my favourite dish. For the perfect gift? I believe the best gift is something homemade. I like making cards and collages and love baking, so I do love bringing some healthy baked goods with me as gifts sometimes. For a fantastic meal? I eat in a lot more than I eat out. I have an e-book cookbook and some of my favourite dishes I constantly cook are in there. So I head
to Leo’s in Kew for some produce – I love it for the fresh and organic selection of meat and veg, the awesome cheese selections, and they always have beautiful fresh flowers available as well. For a great cup of coffee? In summer, Mr Hendricks – it’s got a beautiful outdoor area. In winter I’d probably head to Arthur Radley, which is smaller and super cosy. For some ‘me time’? I tend to go for long power-walks when I need time to myself. I take my dog Ari – even when I need ‘me time’ I like him around! For some exercise? KX Pilates recently opened up in Balwyn, which I am so happy about! I go three times a week. For a sneaky take-away? Birichino Cucina and Pizzeria is my local for a cheat night – the pizza is amazing! ● JEMIMAH CLEGG » Steph Claire Smith’s e-cookbook can be bought at stephclairesmith.com.au

The pain factor It just barely tingles.
The reality The salon is a calming, modern space with a greenery wall and timber accents. It feels more like a day spa than the dreaded dentist. I’m greeted by Maddie, who shows me to the sink and gives me a bamboo toothbrush and a weird powder which, she assures me, works the same way as toothpaste. “Wet your toothbrush and dip it in the powder. It ‘exfoliates’ your teeth,” she tells me. Next I’m given a mouth guard with a white, somewhat sparkly-looking gel inside. I put it in my mouth and lie back on the super-comfy couch. Maddie gives me some protective glasses and then
The pay off After two sessions my teeth have become about four shades whiter, and Maddie says most people will have a third session to really get that shine happening. The most important thing is maintenance, so no red wine or beetroot for a while and up-keep at home, with Perla’s products, includes using the whitening pen and strips, and replacing your nightly brush paste with that weird and wonderful powder.

elicity Albrecht is a Latin teacher who loves to pass on her knowledge of the ancient classics. She also loves to play the ukulele and learn hula dances – some of which she performs for her devoted students while chanting Latin verbs. Felicity mentors students at Sacré Cœur including Emma Walling in year 10, who shares a passion for ancient languages and hopes one day to use her knowledge of Latin to help her become a human rights lawyer. ● firstname.lastname@example.org
chose to study Latin for a few reasons. In years 7 and 8 you study Japanese and French and they’re both compulsory, and then in year 9 you have the option of picking up Latin. I really enjoyed studying Japanese but French wasn’t for me. I’m not really an art or drama kind of girl so, in a way, this is a very utilitarian way of looking at it, but I’d rather do a language than an arts subject. In year 8 I studied Latin Alive, which was once a fortnight and was part of our enrichment program at Sacré Cœur. We learned the Greek alphabet and you could see very clearly it was a history class as well as being a language. I love the way when you’re translating Latin it’s not something that’s really immediate like other languages. It requires a lot of hard work and you can put your own personal flair on it. It’s amazing that something that was written thousands of years ago can be so relevant today. I’m class captain for my year 10 home room and our focus is sustainability as well as general home-room activities like running a birthday roster. We also work on the recycling program, which is a student-run initiative.
We’ve all got a box in our home room for recycling and once every two weeks we rotate through every year level to put the bins out and bring them in again. I think one of the things that I really love about Ms Albrecht is the way she approaches our subject because it is a very academic subject but sometimes she’ll come in hula dancing and decide we’re going to do a 15-minute meditation and she’ll take us to a log cabin [through meditation]. It’s probably one of my most difficult subjects but it’s the one I enjoy the most as well because I think Ms Albrecht ensures we’re still enjoying the challenge of it. She’s really clever because she works very hard at teaching us to motivate ourselves. She lets us work in groups a lot so the temptation is always there for us to sit back and talk – which occasionally we might do – but we know if we do that we’ll fall behind, so we just have to keep motivating ourselves. When I finish school I’d like to be a human rights lawyer and then I’d like to move into politics a bit later on. There’s a course in Canberra that I’d like to do when I finish school called Law PPE – Politics, Philosophy and Economics. ●
“sometimes she’ll come in hula dancing & decide we’re doing a 15-minute meditation”
FELICITY SAYS …
started here in 2008 teaching Latin and Creative Art Therapy as well as being on the well-being team for four years as a counsellor. It’s a very special place at Sacré Cœur. There is just something special about going to a staff briefing where it isn’t all about pressure and striving – it’s about cherishing individual students. Latin is a magic kind of subject because it’s intellectual and academic and it allows you to time travel. It’s got three parts to it. It’s got the language side, the vocab and the grammar and then you’ve got the history
side – the historical context – and then it’s the literature side with the analysis and interpretation of texts. Latin in the school curriculum focuses on the classical texts so Latin from the classical period of Rome – you’re translating text from Caesar, Cicero, Horace, Livy, Ovid, Virgil – so there’s all these texts; you could spend a lifetime and never have time to read them all. They’re so rich and so fascinating and it’s wonderful to connect to something written more than 2000 years ago. We have a lot in common with the past. I met Emma in year 8 through Latin
(MICHAEL RAYNE A AYNE R)
EMMA SAYS …
Alive. It’s an extension subject offered to those who are interested. It’s offered to a select group of girls. In year 9 she was enrolled in the year 11 Latin class because of scheduling clashes. Thus it was a more intense beginning to learning the language than through class, so we did a little bit of extra work together. She was learning verbs while the other students were doing assessments for the VCE. I’ve learned so much from Emma. First of all there’s what I admire about her, which is her steely resolve. That combined with her unwavering confidence in herself, which
is not a fashionable characteristic that we usually celebrate in young women. Having seen girls who excel academically and achieve their personal goals – I know that they’re women that are self-actualised. I really admire this in Emma and I want to foster and nurture this in her. She has lovely attributes as well, like kindness and warmth and generosity – they’re all there too and they’re important but this confidence is important because if students like Emma believe they can, then they can. If they think they can’t then they just don’t. I love watching her push herself in class to learn. ● JULY 20, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 23

t was while he was a student at a Catholic school in NSW that the principal of Xavier College, Chris Hayes, decided to become a teacher. He says it was their care of individual students, their focus on excellence and the importance of making a difference in the wider community that was his inspiration. “I was inspired because of the wonderful teachers I had at school; it was from their example that I wanted to be a teacher … because they really cared about me succeeding,” Chris says. “I [also] just wanted to help young people, to make a difference in their lives, and that hasn’t changed in all these years.” The decision has led to a career that has so far spanned 36 years, 29 of them teaching and leading in Jesuit schools. He has also been head of an Edmund Rice Education Australia school, St Edmund’s College in Canberra. Chris has spent many years in Jesuit Catholic schools where the philosophy and works of St Ignatius of Loyola, who founded the order nearly 500 years ago, continues to inspire students and teachers in their learning and in their lives. It is St Ignatius’ last words, reportedly to St Francis Xavier (for whom Xavier College is named), that have inspired Chris in his role. St Ignatius told his friend to “go forth and set hearts on fire”, to encourage people to learn at depth and give back to the community where needs are apparent. Serving as an inspiration, this phrase has led to “setting hearts on fire” becoming a vision statement for Xavier College and a new tenet for the school, officially launched this month. It also led Chris to undertake a project with academics from Harvard University’s graduate school of education and Independent Schools Victoria. Chris is one of nine principals from Victorian schools invited to work on a project that falls under the umbrella of “leading learning that matters”. As his part of the project, Chris is focused on how Xavier is setting hearts on fire, and on improving how staff inspire their students to learn. “Whether it’s a government, independent or a Catholic school, we’re all trying to inspire our students to have a thirst for learning,” he says.
Education of hearts & minds
etting hearts on fire has become the vision of not just the leaders and teachers at Xavier College, but also for the students and the wider school community. “It becomes infectious, that idea of seeking excellence, of being helpful CH RIS HAYE S and being of service to others,” Chris Hayes says. “I think that’s why some parents choose to send their children to Xavier, because we’re enrolling the family the Jesuit philosophy and the Catholic faith, which is into a Jesuit education with the focus on excellence and an important part of Chris’ life and studies. In fact, of being of service to the community.” his doctoral thesis at Australian Catholic University Chris says there are many wonderful examples of focused on the Ignatian pedagogy in schools how Xavier students have taken up the mantle to set in Australia. hearts on fire: the school has been involved in the Friday “I am also very fortunate in that I’ve undertaken the Night School for 25 years, in which students work as full Spiritual Exercises and that has given me a pretty language tutors with youngsters whose first language is good insight into what it means to find God in all not English. things,” Chris says. The students’ voluntary work has inspired parents, Faith is important in his family’s life. Chris’s wife who have set up Xavier’s Social Justice Network and Margaret also works in education and they have four who also volunteer. More than 400 parents of past and children (three daughters and a son) ranging in age present students are involved. from 15 to 30, with his youngest daughter in year 10. Such actions, Chris says, are an important part of
Chris, who has been principal of Xavier since 2009, says that like his own teachers he hopes to focus on individual students and to inspire them and give them a holistic education involving academia, faith and community service. “We’re focused on each individual at the school, so that they may become all that they can be and pursue lifelong learning. We’re really sowing these seeds so that they are helpful to others,” he says. “We aim to produce leaders who are grounded in Christian faith, compassion, hope and love and who aspire to set hearts on fire.” ● email@example.com

to park, this is a mid-sized wagon that’s all about satisfying families wanting a stylish, practical car. The rear hatch – oh-so-easy to open and close by remote – has adequate boot space for everyday family needs but might struggle to fit winter-holiday luggage for all the troops. Passenger space is excellent, with a wide interior. The Sportage delivers nicely on interior fittings. There is a hint of designer luxury in the choice of two-tone grey perforated leather seats and a hint of bling in the dashboard’s simple-to-decipher controls. The diesel engine is a bit grumbly at start-up, and the only other quibble concerns the doors. They’re clunky and heavy to open and the back doors have an awkward shape … but these things we can get used to. ●

After years in Stonnington, Jennifer and the boys moved bayside 18 months ago at the urging of family members. “We decided to rent first to see if we liked it and we love it,” Jennifer says. “So much so I have just bought a much smaller, modern townhouse with a sunny courtyard a few streets from here. “I want to downsize a bit and simplify, but a few favourite pieces will always travel with me wherever I go.” ● SARAH HARRIS email@example.com

BOOKS I love books. I grew up with Dr Seuss books. I remember as a kid they made me laugh, they made me happy. As soon as the boys were born it was Dr Seuss … and they still get read sometimes. I have the wonderful Elena Ferrante series on the go at the moment.
There are some favourite photos of me with my dad John, who is 91, and my beautiful late mum Dorothy. People ask “who is your role model?” It has always been mum and dad – the people I go to for advice – who are my mentors.
My boys know one of my favourite things in the world is a cup of tea. I could give up anything except tea. I have a collection of cups bought for me over the years for Mother’s Day. There is one funny one with a duck because they call me Mother Duck.
AFRICAN QUEEN I bought this bronze of a queen from Benin in an antique store in Nairobi when I went to Africa with World Vision. She put me way, way over the luggage limit. Going to Africa was one of the most special experiences of my life and I got to meet my sponsor child Hannah. JULY 20, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 29

Living in LK Tower, every Saturday AM would begin with a lap of the Tan, maybe two if I was feeling particularly energetic. Let me just say, though – the Anderson Street hill never gets any easier regardless of where you live! I’d never get sick of the trail because I could also try jogging along the Yarra towards the city or around Como Park. Or I could stay indoors and make use of Capitol Grand’s state-of-the-art gym facilities.

side to continue the morning’s efforts and to counteract the Saturday-night cocktails that are inevitably coming. For something a bit different but oh-so-Melbourne, there’s the raw high tea at Yardmill Kitchen & Grocery on Toorak Road. This has been super popular since it was introduced last year and it’s something I’ve been dying to try. The sweet and savoury delicacies are typical of a traditional high tea but are made entirely from raw foods and contain no refined sugars, dairy or gluten. Make sure you book a day in advance. As it’s a Saturday, I’d treat myself PM to a blow-wave. There are so many reputable salons nearby, I’d be spoilt for choice. Should I get a movie-star blow-wave at Joey Scandizzo’s salon or a raw cut and colour at Shibui?
On the way home, I might pop into PM Gum Tree Good Food to collect a few bits and pieces. I’m a self-titled expert when it comes to cheese platters and this gorgeous specialty store always has what I’m after. It displays its wares like a market; there’s a deli, fresh bread, gourmet chocolates, an extensive selection of wine and even flowers.

That said, it’s hard to imagine being disappointed by any restaurant in South Yarra because the calibre is so high. Chapel Street and Toorak Road are a treasure trove of quality eateries, from casual dude food at Brother Burger to fine dining at A La Bouffe.

TOP OF THE TOWN 3401/368 ST KILDA ROAD, MELBOURNE, 3004
t Kilda Road has long been Melbourne’s premium parade. Planned as a wide European-style boulevard, it was a fashionable address until the mid-1950s. Then the old buildings came tumbling down and it morphed into a place of hotels and corporate headquarters. Now the road has gone full circle and a new form of development has created a premium residential precinct once more. The Royal Domain Tower is easily one of the stars of the boulevard. From apartment one on the 34th floor, it is easy to see why this building claims the title of one of the top addresses in postcode 3004. Floor-to-ceiling glass provides coveted world-class, uninterrupted views across St Kilda Road to the Shrine, Royal Botanic Gardens and Government House, to Melbourne’s sporting precinct, and all the way to the Dandenong Ranges. Look along the boulevard and you will see the silhouette of the city skyline. Interesting by day, dazzling at night. To the south, there’s Albert Park Lake and Port Phillip Bay and many of the newer buildings that line Albert Road. Views like these command a premium and there is no chance of them being built out. That’s one of the advantages of living opposite a landmark such as the Shrine of Remembrance. The entry to Royal Domain Tower is still one of the best in town: a long carpeted foyer with a concierge desk that leads to the lifts, past a lounge/library with open fireplace and a boardroom complete with high-end technology. A garden beside the foyer is another feature. Wrapped in balconies, this three-bedroom apartment in the 10-year-old building is all class. The wide entry hall gives a sense of arrival as you focus on the gob-smacking views that greet you. High-end finishes range from marble and stone to herringbone parquetry floors, a gas fireplace, and an open-plan kitchen with a full complement of Gaggenau appliances.
This apartment is large enough and has enough built-in storage to accommodate books, artworks and treasures collected on travels. It feels house-like. The traditional interiors have stood the test of time. They are classic in style and guaranteed to appeal to the demographic, which is likely to be couples downsizing from large family homes, who want to be close to the CBD, entertainment, sports venues and the arts precinct. The open-plan living room is front and centre. The kitchen, with its stone and marble benches, includes excellent storage and generous work space. Sliding glass doors open to the balcony but, even with the doors closed, the cook is always able to appreciate the view. The kitchen overlooks the dining area and the sitting room, which is made cosy by the gas open fireplace. The views of Albert Park Lake and the bay are best appreciated from here. This apartment also has something that many newer builds lack – a full-sized laundry, rather than one concealed behind folding doors. A hall from the dining/living room leads to two bedrooms, although one is used as a study. Both bedrooms are served by a marble bathroom with a double shower. The main bedroom is tucked away in its own wing. Reached by a long gallery that provides a terrific space for displaying artwork, it is a private sanctuary. The large carpeted room has views to the north and the east from windows framed with heavy silk curtains. A decadent marble en suite includes a bath with a view through a full-height window, a marble vanity with two above-bench basins and a frameless glass shower. Secure parking for two cars and a large private storage room are more features in a long list that includes a 25-metre heated pool, sauna, steam room, gym and golf practice nets.● MARIA HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org

MALVERN \ 31A WINTER STREET Renovated with thoughtful attention to detail and preserving original elements, this Edwardian house is infused with a contemporary elegance. It presents a classic facade with red brickwork offset by freshly painted gable ends and tuck-pointing. This quiet Malvern street, a stroll from Glenferrie Road, is named for the darkest season of the year. But the house at No. 31a couldn’t be more of a contrast to a dull July day. It is bright and breezy, with a white colour scheme, generous spaces and subtle light effects that create a welcoming atmosphere. At the front are two bedrooms with white shutters, ceiling roses and diamond-patterned leadlight glass. The main bedroom has an en suite with a floating vanity and subtle integrated lighting, revealing the clever hand of a designer. Further down the L-shaped hallway are the third bedroom, a family-sized bathroom, the laundry and a study nook. The kitchen has stone benchtops, soft-closing drawers and an integrated fridge and freezer. From the living area, bifold doors open to a deck fitted with an awning with a wind sensor. In the rear corner of the property is a pretty studio with its own deck and a powder room. This detached building might make for an inspiring home office. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

If you’re looking for proximity to some of Melbourne’s best private and public schools, it doesn’t get much better than this. Situated in a quiet spot at the back of the block and a stone’s throw from Xavier College and Trinity Grammar, this two-level brick townhouse presents a great opportunity to refresh, renovate or lease out as is. Inside, the entry hall passes a powder room on the way to a carpeted living room at the rear. Opposite are a separately zoned meals area and kitchen, with the laundry tucked in behind. Outside, there’s a big courtyard. All three bedrooms are upstairs. The first has a walk-in wardrobe and access to significant roof storage – space that could be used to make the room even bigger. The second bedroom is near the main bathroom and has a built-in wardrobe and city views. The main bedroom is at the front of this level. It shares the views (from a private balcony) and has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The house also has underfloor heating, and ducted heating and cooling. ● JULIAN HEALEY
This contemporary two-level family house is right on trend. Elegant finishes set off a bright, modern interior that features touches of stone and matte timber. Behind the brick facade, the house starts with a bright open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. A pebble gas fireplace is a stylish touch here. The white stone kitchen is large and illuminated by two big windows overlooking the front garden. It has a breakfast bar overhung with three striking, copper-finished pendant lights. At the back, sliding doors open this area to a rear deck, lawn and garden. There’s also a laundry, powder room and internal access to the single garage on this level. The carpeted bedrooms with built-in wardrobes are upstairs. There’s a central bathroom and the main bedroom has an en suite. In a quiet cul-de-sac, this house is a quick walk to trams on Whitehorse Road and trains at Mont Albert station, and a short drive to the Eastern Freeway. ● JULIAN HEALEY

CANTERBURY \ 12a VIEW STREET Standing proudly in a handsome Edwardian street, this gabled two-storey house looks as good a vintage as its neighbours. However, its secret weapon is youth. Built about 1995 to a design by Rob McGauran, it has lots of what modern families want – light, breeze, beautiful garden views without massive maintenance, and plenty of space even though the footprint is small. There are two living rooms, each opening to its own landscaped courtyard. Three first-floor bedrooms make this an excellent choice for school-aged families, and the study offers an elegant base for a home business. Freshly painted and with new carpet, engineered-oak flooring and linen curtains, the interior looks enticingly chic. At the front is the carpeted study, followed by the first living room, whose full-length windows look on to “the arbour” – a sunny courtyard of topiaries. A connecting corridor opens to this courtyard. In the house’s rear half is the granite kitchen and, next to it, the oak-floored dining area. The second living room has french doors to the shady rear courtyard and its sunken terrace. Upstairs, the attic-style main bedroom has an en suite. Two more bedrooms share the main bathroom. There’s a garage, and Maling Road and Canterbury station are nearby. “I love that we can walk anywhere in five or 10 minutes,” the vendor says. ● ALISON BARCLAY
