an you feel it? There’s a frisson in the air C as the city counts down to the AFL grand final. It’s not just the excitement about who
will claim this year’s flag, but also the sense that we’re on the verge of something. It’s almost time to put away the footy scarves and break out the fascinators. Hello spring! This year there’s an extra whiff of new beginnings in the ether as the AFL prepares to launch its national women’s league in 2017. It’s a seismic shift in the game that helps define our city and the early signs are good. When the teaser Women’s All-Stars match was televised earlier this month, it was watched by more viewers than any other AFL game this home and away season. In celebration of footy’s brave new female focus, we invited five of the code’s most influential women into the TWR studio for a photo shoot and a chat about what they love – and don’t love – about the game and what they’d like to change. It makes fascinating reading. ●

SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7
Daisy Pearce \ Captain of the Melbourne Football Club When did you first fall in love with footy? I grew up in a footy-mad family. I had a brother either side of me and my dad, who were all heavily involved in our local club, Bright Football Club, in north-east Victoria. I started playing Auskick when I was about six. Many of the paintings and drawings that used to come home from primary school were all very much about footy. I was obsessed with footy cards and footy stickers. Fondest footy moment? I love any time you see young people inspired to play the game. Or you see something click for them where they either feel like they belong or can play the game. Since I became an AFL ambassador, and working at Melbourne Footy Club, I enjoy getting out to schools and kids’ clinics and seeing young people pick up the game, particularly now that the girls’ game is getting a bigger profile. To see them have female role models is pretty inspiring and it’s something I’m really proud to have been a part of. Worst footy moment? There were times when I thought I’d have to stop playing; that was tough. I had to play junior football with the boys because there was no girls’ competition. When I got to the end of under 13s, I thought I’d have to stop because that was the rule. My dad argued with the league and they overturned it so I could continue to play through to under 15s. When I reached the under 15s I thought I wouldn’t be able to continue playing. That’s when I moved to Melbourne and discovered the women’s league. Are you excited about the advent of the women’s league next year? It’s a really important step in making the AFL more attractive and accessible for women. It’s great that young girls can aspire to play in it from a young age. I think that’s exciting. And on a selfish level, I’m really excited to play in it as well; it’s a dream come true. ●
Susan Alberti \ Vice President of the Western Bulldogs Football Club
W MEN STANDING
Fondest footy moment? The redevelopment of the Whitten Oval. I played a very big role in that. It was an incredible achievement. We had to find $32 million in the west of Melbourne and that’s not an easy feat. Also when Tony Liberatore won the Brownlow Medal. I’d said all year that Tony was going to win and everybody said I was mad. I said, ‘He’s a guy who never ever gives up; he doesn’t have natural talent but he uses everything that he’s been given’. When he won the Brownlow, it was one of the happiest moments in my life. I bought his boots, which cost me an absolute squillion.
8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ SEPTEMBER 28, 2016
With the national women’s league kicking off next February, PETER WILMOTH speaks to five of footy’s leading female influencers
When did you fall in love with footy? I was seven, so for 60 years I’ve loved football. I listened to it on the radio, because I was never allowed to go, with my ear against our big stereogram. My first game was at the then Western Oval. It was pretty ordinary, very muddy, very cold … but I loved it. The people were incredibly friendly and I immediately gravitated to the cheer squad because my dad, being a policeman, felt it was a safer environment. We always sat on the boundary, down the Geelong Road end. My favourite player was John Schultz because he was such a gentleman and such a good, clean player, and he was so polite. Then in 1960 he won the Brownlow Medal.
Are you excited about the advent of the women’s league? I’ve only been waiting for this for 50 years. I played for the Footscray Cheer Squad team, with the boys. On the Sunday we used to get our cheer squads together and we’d play against one another. I played for about three years until I was 15, maybe even a bit longer. I had to play against boys and I hung up my boots at 15 because there was nowhere to play with girls. That’s why I’m so excited. Is the AFL still a boys’ club? Look, I do not have a problem. If I can speak on behalf of my own club, I’m treated with absolute respect. It’s a fair environment. We’re three women on a board of nine. I really believe things are changing, the AFL has changed, and I think things are changing. ●
Caroline Wilson \ Football writer
Peta Searle \ Assistant forward line coach at St Kilda Football Club, first female coach in the AFL Fondest footy moment? Footy lends itself to so many good opportunities. There’s the five flags [won] at Darebin; working with [Port Melbourne coach] Gary Ayres. I’m really proud to be part of St Kilda Football Club, which is strong on inclusiveness and diversity and accepting people for who they are. One of my biggest moments is I’ve really loved being a good role model for my daughter, who’s nine, and my son, who’s six. What’s the biggest improvement in footy in the past 10 years? Off the field I love the fact that the AFL has taken more responsibility and opened up the game to all issues. The Pride Game, for example. It’s understanding the influence it has on society and doing something about it. We’re developing footballers but we’re also developing people.
stadiums. To go to Adelaide Oval now, you honestly are proud to be Australian. Metricon on the Gold Coast is a fabulous little stadium … Ditto the SCG now it’s been revamped, and Geelong, and obviously the MCG. We’ve got the best stadiums in the world. Is the AFL still a boys’ club? I don’t think you can change the culture just by your key executive appointments or by creating a national women’s league because there’s still a lot of influential people in the AFL who see it as largely an all-male domain. The AFL has always struggled with their relationship with women, but they’ve always treated them with respect at an executive and corporate level. The clubs have led the way in that … but we’ve got a long way to go.
Fondest footy moment? One that actually brought me to tears was when Sydney won the flag in 2005. Even though I’m not a Sydney supporter, I started writing about footy full-time the year of all their controversy when South Melbourne was moving up to Sydney. I have followed the Swans through all their various disasters and incarnations over a few decades, and when Paul Roos got up with that cup and said to all the South Melbourne supporters who’d waited 72 years for this, ‘Here it is’ … he could not have made a better speech, it’s still my favourite acceptance speech.
(MICHAEL DODGE \ GETTY IMAGES)
Is the AFL still a boys’ club? I think both Gill [McLachlan] and the AFL Commission have been really strong advocates in that space. You can see it in the younger generation coming through; they’re very open, they’re very respectful and they embrace women in different roles. But there’s still work to be done in clubs and leagues and communities in terms of unconscious bias. ●
Worst footy moment? There were a lot of moments during 2013 where I questioned my love for the game. The way Essendon handled the supplements revelations and what they’d done to those boys, in terms of the physical experimentation and needles, and the off-site treatments – drugs they still don’t know what they are. And then the utter refusal by the key players involved to take responsibility was, as a journalist and a football lover, the most disappointed I’ve been in the game. Biggest improvement in the past 10 years? It’s been the way the AFL has got together with governments and built these magnificent
When did you fall in love with footy? I’ve been going to Moorabbin to watch the Saints since I was in a bassinet. Later I got the cardboard boxes from the bar and slid down the hills. After the game [Saints legend] Trevor Barker used to carry me on his shoulders around the social club rooms. My parents were members all their lives so I was born into it.
When did you fall in love with footy? It wasn’t at a game but in my back garden in Armadale when I was seven. It was 1967, Richmond had won its first premiership in 24 years. I got home from a friend’s house and Fred Swift and “Bull” Richardson [Matthew Richardson’s late dad] were in our back garden. My father was a board member but not president at the time. The rest of the players had gone, and they were the last men standing. They were sitting on these white wooden chairs and my brother and sister were there and I joined in. They basically sat us on their knees and sang the Mickey Mouse Club song and then the Richmond theme song to us. I still remember the sun going down, a beautiful sort of spring evening. Richmond had won the premiership and there was this feeling of how special and amazing this was.
How can the AFL improve things for women? They need to introduce quotas at every level because that’s the only way the game has ever really made inroads. I’m not saying there should be an equal number of women coaches or managers or recruiters, but the AFL has to show leadership here. When their first woman commissioner [Sam Mostyn] was basically forced on to them, no male would stand aside so they ended up having to extend the commission; there was a quota-type move. I finally got in as a member of the Melbourne Cricket Club with my mum and sister in 1982 and that was because a quota system was introduced whereby women were allowed to jump the queue and come in on guest passes. That was a massive social change and I still think [former premier] John Cain doesn’t get recognised enough for that. So the quota system works. Nearly every club now has two women on their board. There should be more. Boards are far better because of it. The AFL has to show leadership, and although they have two women on their executive for the first time, there needs, in the next two years, to be four. It’s not good enough that we have only two women commissioners. We need to get that number up to three or four over the next two years. The next AFL chairman – if Mike Fitzpatrick is serious about reform – will be a woman. ●
“the next AFL chairman – if mike fitzpatrick is serious about reform – will be a woman” – Caroline wilson
Peggy O’Neal \ President of Richmond Football Club How long have you loved footy? I moved to Richmond in 1991. The first game I went to was a Melbourne-Richmond game. The Southern Stand had just opened so I think it was ’93. It was an April afternoon and beautiful. Richmond lost. I’d listened to it on the radio before, but seeing it live and on a beautiful April afternoon in a new stand was fantastic. Have you ever questioned your love of the game? No, I don’t think I ever question it. When I was approached to
go on the board, a friend said, ‘You’ve got to worry it doesn’t take the romance out of football because you’ll know more’. When the season starts every year, I think, ‘No, the romance is still there and the stuff that goes on between doesn’t really matter’ – because the enduring love of the game is so good.
I think there’s still a lot to be done by all of us in getting women into leadership roles. You look around and there are lots of men there. But I don’t think that’s necessarily the way it’s going to be in future. I’m always treated with respect. And, coming from the law, I’m used to being the only woman in the room.
What has been the biggest improvement in footy in the past 10 years? We’ve seen a more open, inclusive culture. Clubs have done so much to find a place for new Australians and for the original Australians and those who haven’t played the game before but now have the opportunity to do so. The clubs have jumped at the chance to make it everybody’s game and they are in a position to do such good for the community.
What does the AFL need to do to improve things for women? They need to tap into the pool of excellent qualified women out there and open the doors for jobs in executive roles because these well-qualified women who want a role in sports will go somewhere else otherwise. At Richmond we did a gender equity report and one of the things that came out was about recruiting policies. What we’d done at Richmond is to say that whenever we have one of those roles, we’d tell our recruiting agencies that “there must be women in the mix”. ● email@example.com

De Bortoli La Boheme Act Four Syrah Gamay, 2015 (Yarra Valley) $22; 14%
Logan Clementine Pinot Gris 2016 (Orange) $23; 13%
Fortitude Pacer IPA (Queensland) $3.50 (300ml); 2.8%
It’s all about the blend with the La Boheme range. Blueberries and dark cherries are the major aromas here, with strawberries and spice in support. It’s silky, energetic and nuanced – the sort of wine you feel you could drink a lot of and enjoy every sip. Its berry and spice flavours aren’t too full-on and its robust tannins are great with food. ●
Here’s a pink pinot gris – and one of the best going around right now. The colour is a light blush, which comes from the grape’s purple skins making contact with their juice during fermentation. Highly floral with citrus – think new-season mandarin – and honeysuckle, it’s textural and grippy, with fresh acid and a lengthy finish. ●
I’ve never been a fan of highly hopped, full-throttle IPA beers, but light beers packed with hops are an excellent thing. They really add the flavour that’s often missing in a light. Drink this from a glass to get the most out of its zesty citrus and caramel aromas, creamy smooth texture and bitter, hoppy flavours at the end of each sip. ●

leaning towards mid-strength brews lately – they offer loads of refreshment and you can tuck into a few without getting into trouble before time-on in the second quarter. Wine-wise, riesling is relatively low in alcohol and offers great refreshment, pinot gris has the body to stand up to snacks often served at a barbecue and a wine with tannins is perfect for meats off the grill. ● GOT A QUESTION?

It’s really clean and delicious, with texture, minerality and loads of length. ● Enjoy with \ Fish tacos

eventy-five years old, straight-backed and sharp-eyed, Alan Han stares wistfully out the window of his corner shopfront on Johnston Street, humming along to Elvis Presley crooning from the stereo. He yearns for the ’50s and ’60s – a simpler time when there were no such things as mobile phones or “organic” food. This was also an era of great change for Singapore, one of the most densely populated countries in the world, a melting pot of cultures that expresses itself most profoundly in cuisine. The menu at Old Raffles Place deftly reflects Chinese, Malaysian, Indian and British influences, with dishes such as lobak – a juicy, five-spice-laced hawker-style Chiko Roll – and chai tow kway, smoky stir-fried cubes of turnip cake with kecap manis, sitting alongside Hainanese chicken rice, spicy laksa and teh tarik, a sweet “pulled” tea poured from a height to cool it down for easy drinking by the roadside.

LEANNE TOLR A SA MPLES THE CONTENTS
I made a vegetarian lasagne for some female friends the other week. They loved it. But the complaints from the young men in my house when they were presented with the same meal are still reverberating. Food writer Richard Cornish says it was only when he decided to forgo meat that he realised “just how ubiquitous chicken, bacon, ham, preserved and fresh meat had become in the Australian diet”. Richard’s book, My Year Without Meat, promises to make you reassess the contents of your shopping trolley. ●
I’m looking for an opportunity to use the phrase “the tang of a knife”. It’s almost as sensual as the feel of a sharp, perfectly balanced blade. This new range of Prestige knives by Swiss Diamond are made with ice-hardened German steel from tip to handle base (that’s described as a full tang) and have a rounded blade spine. They are put through a rigorous eight-stage grinding and sharpening process and their handles are finely shaped and balanced. The range includes a 20-centimetre chef’s knife and a nine-centimetre paring knife. ●

THE PLACE Alfred Place, once home to Mietta’s, Comme and most recently The Stokehouse, has gained a fitout worth almost $5 million. The Cut Steakhouse, by the Urban Purveyor Group, is a “premium casual” restaurant with dark timber finishes and plush leather seating. Executive chef Timothy Martin (The Age Good Food Guide Young Chef of the Year in 2015) is running an impressive dry-aging room that supplies his kitchen with 200-day-aged beef from boutique producers, including Victoria’s Seven Creeks Wagyu and Cape Grim in Tasmania. ● MORE ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT
Let’s get the pronunciation right: key-a-knee-na. Chianina cattle produce lean, well-muscled beef most famous in the Italian dish Bistecca alla Fiorentina. Isola Chianina, bred on a family farm in South Gippsland, are 100 per cent free range, fully grass-fed and chemical free. The meat has a clean, fresh flavour and a firm-but-tender texture. Farm owners Daniela Mollica and Sam Walker slaughter an animal only when they have enough orders. The whole beast is used and 10-kilogram home packs contain prime and secondary cuts. Isola Chianina is served at restaurants such as Grossi Florentino, Osteria la Passione and D.O.C. and is available online. ● MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

ou can take Melbourne out of the grand final, but you can’t take the grand final out of Melbourne. Certainly, there’s no other sporting event – not even the Melbourne Cup – that seems to truly define our city. In recognition of the big day’s impact, the AFL last year launched the Foxtel Footy Festival. This four-day celebration brought a quarter of a million people to the lawns around the MCG. This year is expected to be bigger. Danielle Bleazby, director of events for the AFL, is the brains behind the festival. She says the featured activities are designed to lure a wide range of folk (even, unthinkably, non-footy fans). “It’s a great opportunity for family and friends to come down, find a whole lot of giveaways and activities, and just join in that great atmosphere that is Melbourne and football,” Danielle says.” In putting the festival together, she’s been keen to showcase the best of our fine city to interstate visitors. “What we’ve seen with the Perth clubs is they come in on the Wednesday or Thursday and are looking for stuff to do that will enhance their experience of grand final week. So we have some great restaurants
involved, such as Estelle, Biggie Smalls and Lady Carolina, showing off the great multicultural food that is Melbourne.” Visitors will have the chance to try pop-up bars and restaurants, and vote on special football-themed dishes created by some of Melbourne’s best chefs. There will also be plenty of activities for kids, with free films and stalls from Nickelodeon and Disney. The Toyota AFL Grand Final Live site will feature green screens to put you on the field, alongside a chance to try your hand (or voice) at commentating. Fans can have their photos taken with trophies and players from the past, as part of a display of every Premier Cup in existence. To top it all, local hip hop star Illy will be giving a free concert on Grand Final Eve. Of course, the centrepiece of proceedings will be the annual parade, expected to bring 150,000 marchers to the festival main stage. ● firstname.lastname@example.org » 2016 Foxtel Footy Festival September 28 – October 1, Yarra Park, free » afl.com.au/footy-festival

MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN FILM When something monstrous walks into young Jake’s life, he sets off in search of a magical orphanage once home to his grandfather. Said orphanage is a refuge for kids with mysterious powers, presided over by Miss Peregrine (Eva Green). There’s a lot to recommend in this new fantasy adventure – the young adult novel on which it’s based is rightly praised and more Eva Green is always a good thing. And yet, it’s hard to get past director Tim Burton’s cloying style. ■ Opens September 29.

Grumpy Uncle Hec (Sam Neill) is less taken with Ricky, but the two end up bonding when they go on the run from the authorities.

TONY JONES Tony Jones, Nine News Melbourne’s sports presenter, recently celebrated 30 years at the Nine Network. He has covered many major sporting events, including the historic 1994 tour of South Africa by the Australian cricket team. He lives in Balwyn North with his wife Annette and two kids, Mitchell and Lauren, and loves the neighbourhood for its proximity to the city and public transport. “It just seems to be the perfect location,” Tony says. Where do you go for a sneaky takeaway? My favourite would be Lemongrass Chicken. There’s no better chicken, and their chips aren’t bad either.

For when friends come from out of town? I take them to the Docklands area on the Yarra. It’s a great part of town and there are plenty of good bars there. The one I’d always choose first is the General Assembly. The Sporting Globe in Richmond is also a favourite. To brush out the cobwebs? Since we got our dog we’ve become regulars at the Koonung Creek Trail, which runs along the Eastern Freeway in North Balwyn. The dogs can run free, and it’s great for running and cycling. Definitely one of the area’s best attractions. For the perfect meal? This is the bogan coming out in me: sausages, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots. If I was to go out, the Box Hill RSL always has good meals. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

The pay-off Immediately afterwards I feel endorphins running wild in my body. I sleep like a baby that night and notice my skin is super smooth the next day. Also, the Sunlighten system claims a 30-minute session can burn up to 600 calories while I lie there.
INFR ARED THER APY
The promise A 30-minute session in a solo sauna to relax, recharge and reinvigorate.
The pain factor On my first visit, I had planned to meditate but I found myself unable to focus on anything but the heat, which was strangely liberating – I was forced out of my head and into my body. The second and third times, however, the heat felt less oppressive and I was able to totally zone out. Who should try it? Those who like it hot, want to release toxins or are experiencing poor circulation or pain. The bill? It’s $35 for a casual session and there are discounted monthly bundles. (ISTOCK)
The reality When calling to book, I ask what I’m in for and the owner, Symee, says I will be alone in a private room for 30 minutes. “Oh, I’d better bring a book, then!” I say, thinking this is a clever idea. “You’ll be lying down in the sauna,” says Symee. “No phone, no reading – nothing.” It takes me a second to compute this. Once there, I slip into my personal sauna, which is a horizontal, dome-shaped contraption. Rainforest sounds play in the background. My body is immersed in the 58-degree, towel-lined interior while my head stays out. It’s a dry heat that feels like lying in the sun (but without the harmful effects!). I start to sweat profusely about 10 minutes in and at one point I take my arms out to give myself a break. Somehow I’m surprised when the timer starts beeping to signify that 30 minutes is up.
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?
Yes – I went three times! ●

“Quality, comfort and style” – Mary-Jane Hogg, store manager
Urban Choice by Peter Sheppard opened in May this year, bringing some of the popular Peter Sheppard brands of quality women’s footwear to Camberwell. Who’s behind the counter? Store manager Mary-Jane Hogg has worked for the company for more than 20 years. She and her team are experienced shoe-fitters, meaning their customers can find shoes that not only look great but feel great. “Customers can come in and sit down, have their feet measured and are looked after and helped to find the right shoe for them,” she says. What’s in store? High-quality footwear brands from Europe include Pikolinos and Hispanitas from Spain, Ara and Waldlaufer from Germany and Legero from Austria. “We have shoes that have movable footbeds for people who need orthotics or, for people with problem feet, we have shoes with soft-contoured footbeds to give them the extra support,” Mary-Jane says. Even their more fashion-forward styles have extra padding and are designed with comfort in mind, she adds. “Even if people aren’t at the stage where

OVER THE FENCE STEVE & JUSTINE \ AR M ADALE
How we met
Steve Stefanopoulos is the heritage collection and records manager at Loreto Mandeville Hall and also runs Stonnington heritage walks. He met Justine Barnett more than a decade ago when they were working together and they are now close friends and neighbours in Armadale.
STEVE STEFANOPOULOS \ 41 I was working at St Francis Church in the city. It has an archive and museum collection and Justine was doing a placement there while studying, so that’s how we met. We got to know each other better once she moved to Armadale. She’s such a bubbly personality and she’s constantly engaging, interesting and really knowledgeable. She’s one of those people you can just ring up and have a chat or meet for a coffee for 15 minutes and then just rack off and that’s fine. We might not see each other for months and then as soon as we see each other again, there’s no loss of connection. When my cat Russell died two years ago, she said, ‘Do you need me to come over?’ I was devastated, but she helped me through it. Also, she has a key to our place so if we’re locked out – and we were once – she can come let us in. We also go along to community events together, like jazz and opera in the park. ● » Steve is hosting a guided tour of Mandeville Hall, October 9, 2pm. Inquiries: steve.stefanopoulos@ loretotoorak.vic.edu.au or 9823 8157
JUSTINE BARNETT \ 36 I’ve lived in Armadale for about 10 years now. We knew each other a long time ago but I didn’t live up here then; I lived in Frankston. Then I moved up here with my partner Chris and it was pure coincidence that we literally lived down the road. Ever since we moved here I’d “We’d make bump into Steve and his partner sure the cat Craig all the time. We’ve seen a lot of each other and seen how had food” our lives have changed over the years; I saw him get together with Craig, he’s seen me pregnant and have my baby, do a career change and all that sort of stuff. When Steve had his cat Russell, my son Isaac and I would come over and feed him when Steve was away. We kind of made an outing out of it; we’d come and check the place out and make sure the cat had food and a brush. Isaac loved this little ceramic frog Steve had at the front door. Every single time we’d come in he’d have to pick it up and hold it while we fed Russell. It’s been great. There’s a good sense of community here. ● Solid: Steve Stefanopoulos and Justine Barnett with a portrait of Steve’s cat Russell. (MICHAEL RAYNER) JEMIMAH CLEGG

Tucson. There’s a sense that you’re in safe hands within its sturdy body, with plenty of power, yet you feel comfortably in control, thanks to its responsive steering and clear, accessible driving instruments. The safety aspect goes up a notch with automatic emergency braking and rear-traffic alert, which warns you if a car or pedestrian is approaching as you back out of a driveway or parking spot. Safe, roomy and comfy, it is clearly all about the family, with big doors and boot space to fit kids and all their stuff. Despite a nice line in leather, which also elevates the price, the interior is somewhat uninspired. All the design effort has gone into the eye-catching exterior of curves flowing around elongated window and headlight shapes, with a handsome grille and subtle chrome underscoring. ●

has shed its adolescent awkwardness and knuckled down. Hyundai started by stretching the new Tucson in most dimensions to turn it into a true medium SUV, thus allowing roomy five-seat accommodation and handy 488-litre luggage space. The stylish new look came courtesy of its European designers, while Australian engineers tweaked the suspension and steering for a supple ride and reassuring control. Now armed with a choice of three four-cylinder engines and four specification levels, the Tucson spans a wide range. Our test vehicle was the flagship Czech-built all-wheel-drive Highlander – yes, most Tucson variants are now built there – powered by Hyundai’s renowned 2.0-litre diesel packing 136kW of power (more than most of its rivals) hooked up to a six-speed auto for sparkling acceleration. ●

URBAN SPACES RIVERSDALE BY STELLER
The selling point High-end two-storey townhouses and larger apartments a few steps from the epicentre of Camberwell’s prized lifestyle precinct.
n Melbourne’s prestigious inner-east all roads seem to lead to Camberwell Junction, which is continually evolving as an ever-more-popular lifestyle hub with hundreds of choices for dining, shopping and entertainment. At a site that’s just a four-minute walk from the junction, boutique residential specialist Steller has released a high-end, five-level development of six two-storey townhouses and 32 larger-format apartments. Apartments start at $550,000 and the two-storey townhouses at $910,000. Architect Ewert Leaf’s design for Riversdale will create a distinctive statement with dramatic geometric forms outlined in natural concrete and filled with fine timber-look horizontal battens forming stylish shade and privacy buffers. The upper levels have timber-look cladding and soffits and the building is capped by a penthouse level surrounded by expansive terraces. Developer-builder Steller has a long-established reputation for designing and building bespoke owner-occupier-targeted developments that offer larger formats and luxury design features, finishes and fittings. Steller director James Cirelli says the inclusion of the six two-storey town residences on the north-facing Riversdale Road frontage is a first for a Steller development. “Townhouse-style living is extremely hard to find in this area and there has been exceptional interest prior to launch from local buyers. There’s also high demand for more exclusive boutique developments with fewer
residences; with a choice, people prefer to live in a smaller complex. “We know people want more space, more storage, high-quality, low-maintenance finishes and fittings and on-ground parking in a sustainable building. Our residences all have 2.7-metre ceilings, double glazing and full concrete construction.” After developing its own sustainability initiatives Steller strives to provide an average rating of seven stars. Sustainable features
include solar panels on the roof to light common areas, rainwater catchment for toilet flushing and design features such as concrete construction with additional insulation to reduce energy costs and noise. Riversdale residences all include one to two on-ground car parks, storage in the secure basement and audio-visual intercoms. Completion is anticipated in early 2018. ● LIZ McLACHLAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Location, location Riversdale is about 7 kilometres east of the CBD and a few moments from Camberwell Junction with scores of cafes, restaurants and stores. On foot it is four minutes to the art deco Rivoli Cinemas, six minutes to Camberwell Primary School and 10 minutes to Camberwell station.

The six two-storey townhouses all have a north-facing aspect and secure private pedestrian gates to Riversdale Road. All have ground-level living areas opening to private courtyard gardens and several also have an upper-level balcony. Four have a ground-level bath or powder room with one or two further bathrooms upstairs and two bedrooms. One townhouse has a third bedroom and all but one of the main bedrooms has a walk-in wardrobe. As in the apartments, natural oak flooring and handwoven wool chevron carpets finish living and bedroom floors. ●
Contemporary luxury and elegance abound in the Riversdale kitchens, which all feature a marble island bench lit by an overhead pendant. Carrara marble flows over the benchtops, splashbacks and the waterfall-ended island benches, which have an exposed wine rack. High-end pearl white French De Dietrich appliances comprise a wall oven, built-in microwave, induction or gas cooktop and integrated dishwasher. There’s also a Fisher & Paykel integrated refrigerator and an Ilve concealed rangehood. The white 2pac joinery has finger-pull handles. ●
Residents will feel spoilt in the bathrooms with their attention-to-detail design and natural finishes. A Carrara marble oval basin sits above the white stone-topped floating vanity. There’s a full-height oak-veneer corner cabinet with pull-out shelving and laundry bin and a heated swivel towel rail. Stone-style porcelain tiling finishes the floor and walls. The walk-in shower has a feature wall of polished white herringbone patterned tile with a timber-tile niche, dual showerheads and a frameless glass screen. Some larger apartments include a bath. ●

f the vibe in Jennifer Hansen’s Brighton home seems more than welcoming it may not all be down to the vivacious host. Before locking in renovation plans for the Edwardian home the Smoothfm 91.5 More Music Breakfast Show news presenter shares with actor husband Alan Fletcher (Neighbours Neighbours mainstay Dr Karl Kennedy), Jennifer sought the advice of a feng shui expert. “The back doors are on an angle, the entrance behind the kitchen is on an angle and the stove top is on an angle: all designed to make it a warm, inviting place for entertaining. And I have to say whenever we have dinner parties everyone has a great time,” laughs the mum of two, who has recently published her first novel Making Headlines as an eBook. “We put up with the 1950s wallpaper and poo-brown carpet for a few years before we actually started to renovate and have done it bit by bit. “I would call my style comfortable contemporary.” ● SARAH HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org » smooth.com.au jenniferhansen.com.au
CROSS I’m not particularly religious but I do like religious iconography and, because I was brought up as a Christian, I do appreciate crosses on many levels. I like this one for its artistry and styling. It also echoes a spiritual connection to my past.
HANDBAG This T Tom Ford handbag is the most expensive handbag I’ve ever bought and I still feel guilty about it. I was in Hawaii awaii with a girlfriend, who insisted I should buy it. Then, hen, after agonising for days, I discovered it was called the “Jennifer” bag, which sealed the deal.

We bought this to go in our daughter’s courtyard but realised it needed a flat surface so it ended up in the sunroom. I love it but it has a downside. Every time you sit in it and swing it makes a really loud creaking noise that no amount of oil will fix.
A dear friend opened up a new homewares store and we felt we needed to buy something. But I fell in love with these Indian steel lamps and think they work really well in our sunroom.
This is a signed piece of memorabilia that Alan bought at a charity auction because he knows I’m a huge John Lennon fan and that we share the same birthday.
My first novel Making Headlines has been published by Harper Collins. It is kind of like Bridget Jones meets The Devil Wears Prada. I have always wanted to write.
This was a wedding gift from a good friend, who said elephants only ever had one life partner and she wished that for us as well. So far so good!

THE LIGHT FANTASTI F C 33 HAWKSBURN ROA RO D, SOUTH YARRA, 3141
ight and space come together in perfect harmony at this two-storey house in one of South Yarra’s best-known streets. The house, renovated by Victoria Hamer Architects, is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows that let natural light fill every room. The balance of house to land is excellent. Its 596 square metres of land is enough to provide front and back gardens and create a sense of space in one of South Yarra’s premium pockets. The house seems even bigger because of its terrific connection to the outdoor zones. The landscaped gardens bring the outside in, making it almost impossible to believe you are so close to the vibrant hub of the Chapel Street and Toorak Road corner. It feels more like the Mediterranean with its north-west paved travertine terrace and the swimming pool and high boundary walls with espaliered oranges and lemons. A row of slender pencil pines camouflages the neighbouring properties and only the Channel Ten logo atop the Como Centre gives the game away. The front garden comprises lawn and a single feature tree. Simplicity is key. On the tall side boundary wall, an espaliered wisteria that’s about to flower will soon turn the white wall into a strong shade of purple. The open-plan design connects the foyer with the full-width dining and informal living room. The dining area has a wall of windows that overlook a private Japanese garden. The rest of the room is given over to the living area, where an open fireplace is a reminder that Melbourne isn’t all sun and light. At the ground floor’s mid-point, a door opens to a north-facing courtyard with low hedges of kumquat. On the other side of the building, a large mirrored powder room again shows that space is well-utilised. The large laundry is also tucked away on this southern side. In the kitchen, family and meals area, the rear wall of glass and full-height glass doors let the light in, but a retractable awning ensures protection from the sun.
The kitchen is sleek, with a long Calacatta marble island bench that seats six. On the other side of the bench is a six-burner Smeg stove with a semi-commercial Miele rangehood. Storage above and below the bench is excellent, the double-door fridge is within arm’s reach and the whole design puts the cook at the centre with a good view of the outdoors and the living room, where a built-in white storage unit features a Calacatta marble top. The butler’s pantry is hidden behind the kitchen. It has a sink, second dishwasher and excellent storage and preparation space. Upstairs, all four bedrooms and the family bathroom open off the wide hall. The main bedroom has access to a full-width north-facing balcony. The walk-in wardrobe connects to a marble en suite with double shower. Three other bedrooms are served by another marble bathroom with bath, double shower and twin basins. Two at the front have doors to very generous balconies. All three have built-in desks and shelves. There is also a study with desks that create two workstations. Hawksburn Road was one of the earliest subdivisions in South Yarra. It is known for its Victorian houses. Leading to this property from the Toorak Road end of Hawksburn Road, there are single-storey terraces on either side of the street. As the road goes uphill, the houses become bigger and grander. Two-storey Victorian houses are common. Then come the Edwardians and a few 20th-century builds. This late-20th-century house is a beauty, not just because of its sophisticated accommodation but also because it offers a remote-controlled double garage with internal entry and extra off-street parking. These are prized assets in built-up South Yarra. There’s also has a long list of top-class appointments such as air-conditioning and underfloor heating, surround sound, video intercom, alarm, ducted vacuuming and water tanks. ● MARIA HARRIS email@example.com

EAST MELBOURNE \ 79 GIPPS STREET A single-level floor plan makes this Edwardian house a beautiful anomaly in East Melbourne, where “period” usually means an 1860s terrace with steep stairs. Here, from verandah to rear courtyard, the gradient is a soothing zero all the way. Built of tuck-pointed red brick, the house was extended in 2010 with a new kitchen and family area to complement its living and dining rooms. The interior is impeccable: pale gold walls, crystal chandeliers and leadlight conspire to bounce the sunshine around and bring levity to grandeur. It’s a house to which a harried CEO (or member of parliament) would love to come home – and invite friends. From the parquet hall, turn left to the large study. Handsome with bookcases either side of the grey marble fireplace, it’s a suitable place to ponder affairs of state. Two double bedrooms have wardrobes; the main bathroom is semi en suite to both and has a tub and shower. Across the hall, the main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with shower. The adjoining living and dining rooms open to a side courtyard. White bifold doors lead to the kitchen, cool in grey marble with a Viking 1800-millimetre gas range. The butler’s pantry has a Liebherr refrigerator. The oak-floored meals and family area opens to the bluestone courtyard and granite barbecue. The double carport has laneway access. ● ALISON BARCLAY

TOORAK \ 10 LISBUOY COURT This contemporary town residence is in one of Toorak’s most prestigious pockets. A recent design by Nicholas Day, it offers space, premium fittings and a coveted location. Inside combines elegant finishes and bright modern interiors with high ceilings, European oak floors and a private lift. A library is first off the foyer inside the front door. Next is a spacious dining area with a striking pendant light fitting and large windows. After a powder room and the laundry, the house opens up into a rear living hub. The kitchen takes up a generous portion of this zone. It has a muted colour scheme with stone benchtops and Miele appliances, and there’s a well-fitted butler’s pantry. The living area has a gas fireplace and full-height bifold doors to a bluestone-paved courtyard. The solar-heated pool, which is surrounded by manicured gardens, takes pride of place in the courtyard. Upstairs, the main bedroom has a backlit feature wall decorated with French linen wallpaper. The walk-in wardrobe leads to a luxurious marble en suite with underfloor heating, double vanity, glass-door shower and freestanding bath. The other bedrooms also have en suites, and built-in wardrobes. There’s a basement garage for three vehicles, and space dedicated to wine storage and a home gym. ● SUZAN DELIBASIC

Once you’re past the heritage facade, this double-fronted Victorian proves itself to be a house that has been thoroughly renovated and uniquely extended. The original, c1890 build has been flawlessly maintained and retains its allure. The three good-sized bedrooms at the front have period features such as painted cornices, ceiling roses and open fireplaces. The carpeted main bedroom has a bright, modern en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, and one has polished timber floors. From here, the central hall is encased in glass, offering garden views on the way to the living areas at the rear. Back here, formal carpeted living and dining rooms step up to a more casual slate-floored family room, meals area and white Caesarstone kitchen with stainless-steel appliances. At the back of the property, next to a two-car garage, is a freestanding studio or fourth bedroom with polished timber floors. A charming brick courtyard rounds out the property. ● JULIAN HEALEY
Built in 1900, Amber is a glorious Queen Anne house. In addition to its exquisite heritage features, it enjoys modern touches and a key position on a 1059-square-metre corner block. The picture-perfect facade comes neatly contained by gardens, a sunny courtyard and saltwater pool. The interior features intricate hallway arches, cornices, pressed ceilings, ceiling roses and touches of leadlight beneath high ceilings. The floor plan offers great flexibility. What were once formal living and dining rooms are now a fifth bedroom and lounge. These rooms are impressive, with a marble fireplace in the lounge and a turret window in the bedroom opposite. The main bedroom has an en suite, built-in wardrobes and an open fireplace, while two of the remaining bedrooms also have open fireplaces. The house ends in an open-plan meals and living area and black granite kitchen with convenient access to a large, luxurious bathroom and study. A wall of doors in this zone opens to a north-facing courtyard. ● JULIAN HEALEY
