A nd the winner is … After weeks of searching, hundreds of nominations and thousands of reader votes, I am delighted to announce the winners of TWR’s inaugural Startup Stars award. It was a close race between our eight finalists, and all should be congratulated, but ultimately it was local startup, Pod & Parcel, that topped the votes. Founders Elliott Haralambous and Ben Goodman hit upon their idea of packaging specialty, locally roasted coffee inside recyclable Nespresso-compatible pods, and launched their company earlier this year. “Specialty coffee has been around for over 15 years and coffee capsules for almost twice as long as that,” says Elliott. “We’re the first business to mix those two concepts together and offer the best coffee you can buy in the easiest format to drink it.” As our 2016 Startup Stars, the boys win a prize package worth more than $10,000. ●

“I love being in melbourne, but I don’t make decisions on my own… a child changes everything”
the right girl Picture \ Pierre Toussaint
8 The weekly review \ OCTOBER 5, 2016
PETER WILMOTH MEETS JESSICA MARAIS
er big break came when she was cast as Rachel Rafter in Packed to the Rafters. The role, which she played for four years, turned her into a national star. She loved the experience “because of the beautiful people I worked with” but fame came as a shock. “I didn’t know that I was going to be in a show that was going to be so embraced by the whole country. You know, I went from thinking I was going to be a theatre actress that no one knew, to people really recognising me as Rachel Rafter everywhere. It changed my life a lot.” After Rafters, she went on to star in Channel Nine’s Love Child, based on the real life experiences of young women in a Sydney boarding house in the 1960s facing forced adoptions. Jessica says she was immediately drawn to the story. “There was something about it that I thought was very sensitive and beautiful. I was actually quite shocked when I read some of the background subject matter and realised how widespread was the experience of people having their babies unwillingly removed from them. It was a slice of history I didn’t really know about, and I wanted to be involved in telling that story.” In 2012 she landed a role in a racy American TV series, Magic City, centred around Miami Beach gangsters in the late 1950s. “It was a big eye-opener to me in terms of the scale of production in America,” she says. “I’d come from doing a very domestic Australian piece, Packed to the Rafters, and to then step onto a $55 million set … it was kind of mind-boggling to me.” How did the experience shape her career? “I fell pregnant in the first season of Magic City so … I wasn’t really thinking about how it was shaping my career,” she says. “I was just thinking
about how I was going to become a mother and an actress at the same time. I didn’t know [I was pregnant] for a little while, so it was certainly interesting trying to work through it. I was quite tired with the things that happen at the start of a pregnancy but luckily I wasn’t a lead.”
THE WRONG GIRL’S MELBOURNE
in Zoe’s book as some of its great fans may hope. What we are trying to capture is that Lily is an incredibly accessible character to a lot of women who are, at 30, trying to balance being single, trying to have a romantic life, trying to have work, move up and fulfil yourself, living your truth in your work life, and also trying to be a good friend and a good person in the world.” Much like Jessica herself. The 31-year-old actor was born in South Africa and moved to Perth when she was eight. “In Perth, the beaches and the coastline are very pristine and that was a big part of my upbringing, that beach culture, surfing and surf lifesaving.” The young Jessica was involved in all the school plays and, in year 7, played Wendy in a big school production of Peter Pan. “I wanted to be involved in drama from then on,” she says. “It didn’t give me a sense at all that that might be the career I’d have when I left school, it was more just something that I wanted to experience more of.” She loved watching TV and movies, especially musical spectaculars such as My Fair Lady, Singing in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof and The Wizard of Oz. In year 12, her drama teacher suggested she audition for acting schools. “They saw something in me and they said, ‘It might be something you want to pursue’.” She had considered becoming a historian and also dreamed of working in music, maybe as a DJ. “I often joke that it’s like a dream job of mine to quit acting and go work at JB Hi-Fi.” But ultimately acting won out.

t’s early morning and a weak sun is struggling through the pine trees on the edge of an oval along a suburban street in Yarraville. I’m on the set of The Wrong Girl, the new Channel Ten series based on the book of the same name by Zoe Foster Blake. There’s a row of production vans and trestle tables, with laptops open, and its star, Jessica Marais, is nursing a coffee. Jessica is three months into the Melbourne shoot and admits she’s been in a bit of a bubble. “When you’re filming and you work the hours that we work – nearly 14-hour days a lot of the time – it’s like you go into a vortex of the world that you’re filming in,” she says. “The world outside doesn’t seem to exist all that much … It can be quite strange like when major things happen. It sort of trickles through the set, the murmurs of what’s happening in the outside world. You don’t even really get a chance to read the newspaper. Busy learning lines and performing all day.” Today Jessica is softly spoken and chooses her words carefully. She is friendly but also slightly guarded. You get the feeling her mind might still be on the script on the table in front of her, and that interviews are not her favourite moment of that 14-hour day, especially given the sometimes invasive coverage she’s had in the tabloids (her split with her former partner James Stewart, father of her young daughter Scout, was great fodder). In The Wrong Girl, Jessica plays Lily Woodward, a 29-year-old junior producer on a breakfast TV show called The Breakfast Bar Bar. Lily’s ambition is to make documentaries, but she finds herself producing the appearances of a “dynamic and forward-thinking chef” who apparently has 146,000 followers on Instagram. The chef presents initially as a bit of a prat. “What’s important to me is food and our relationship with food,” he tells Lily. We might be gagging, but Lily accepts her fate and gets on with it. The Wrong Girl, like another Ten production, Offspring, is set in Melbourne and consciously Offspring makes the city one of the stars of the show. We see North Melbourne train station, the Sun Theatre in Yarraville and myki cards being tapped. And being Melbourne, there are, of course, some achingly hipster cafes, including one where Lily’s friend, a music journalist who is writing a book, works as a barista. “Yarraville features quite a lot,” Jessica says, “and we have regular cafes and things that we tend to frequent for filming the way that a local would.” Viewers will no doubt have a lot of fun trying to identify familiar streets and landmarks on the screen. Jessica says the production has gone to some lengths to capture the essence of Melbourne. “Even in the way Simon Chapman, our director of photography, films it, the colours and things that he’s using, we’re trying to give it a very sort of Melbourne feel … visually it’s kind of edgy but also very beautiful. I think Melbourne has a sort of depth.” The series has a strong cast, including Kevin Harrington, Steve Vizard, Kerry Armstrong, Craig McLachlan and Zoe Foster Blake’s husband Hamish Blake as the weather man. Zoe has visited the set several times. “I think she’s just really excited by seeing the whole process, behind the scenes,” Jessica says. “She’s kind of given me her blessing with Lily to make her my own. “We’re not basing Lily as closely to the character
cout was just three months old when Jessica started shooting the second season. “I was kind of in a haze, to be honest, new mum, pregnancy, new baby, all that.” Now back in Australia, she calls Sydney home but is torn by her love for Melbourne. “I haven’t made any firm decisions about where I’m going to live. I love being in Melbourne, but I don’t make decisions on my own; it’s all going to be about what’s best for our family. A child changes everything, absolutely, but we’re just doing the best we can, you know. “I’ve felt that Melbourne is a gentler city and people seem to be a little, I wouldn’t call it laid-back … I just feel a little bit less self-conscious in Melbourne. I feel like people are busy doing their own thing. And it’s very artistic, which I love. I feel like the hospitality here is excellent.” Not that she’s had all that much time to explore Melbourne during filming. “On my weekends I’m being a mum, so every minute that I haven’t been filming I’ve either been trying to work out how to get back to Sydney to see Scout or organising her to come here.” When Jessica is away with work, Scout spends time with her father in Sydney. Of course Jessica misses her. “Yeah, we manage. It’s not ideal but the time I spend with her is very quality time, so that’s very good for both of us.” She met James Stewart on the set of Rafters. “He’s a great father and I respect him enormously. But I don’t really feel the need to talk about James.” That hasn’t stopped the tabloids speculating about their family arrangements. Has she become used to media intrusion into her personal life? “I don’t like it, not at all. I can understand the interest but, you know, I feel protective of my daughter.” She says her discomfort with being in the public spotlight has actually increased since she first catapulted to fame on Packed to the Rafters. “I think at first it was kind of a whirlwind and it was a bit exciting. The discomfort at the attention that we receive has increased as I’ve started getting older and I’ve changed.” Meanwhile she’s concentrating on building a career as a respected actor. Role selection is critical, and tough. “I remember reading an interview with Meryl Streep where she said, ‘You’re defined by what you say no to’. It can be really hard for actors, especially in this country where there’s not an abundance of work for anyone.” Even in a well-established actor there’s the ever-attendant neuroses. “We all have – well a lot of us do – we’re always thinking every job’s going to be our last. What if we never get another role?” It’s been time spent with a down-to-earth, no-nonsense and focused professional who’s juggling parenthood and whose priorities revolve around her daughter. I ask Jessica about passions outside work. “Music, travel, food, sleep and my daughter – being a mum.” ● email@example.com » The Wrong Girl screens on Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Channel Ten OCTOBER 5, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9

WATCH THIS FACE BENJA MIN HANCO CK \ DANCER
What’s the buzz? Described by The Sydney Morning Herald as having “slightly scary flexibility”, Benjamin has worked with Australia’s most acclaimed companies and choreographers, including Chunky Move and Sue Healy. This week he’ll dance in the world premiere of The Dark Chorus, by renowned choreographer, Lucy Guerin. In the beginning … A high school dance teacher introduced Benjamin to the world of dance, although he also dabbled in gymnastics and karate. “I realised I didn’t really like the competitiveness, that I could express myself through dance and be more creative”. The same teacher encouraged him to audition for the VCA. Having made the cut, he graduated in 2008 and has worked consistently since.
More bench More storage More style More features More finishes
The big break … Working with Tasmania’s Dark MOFO has firmly planted Benjamin on the national stage. “I do have a little fan base who know who I am through MOFO. They always call me Bendy Ben, because that’s my Instagram name.” Where to now? Bendy Ben will perform with Opera Australia in its ambitious staging of Wagner’s Ring Cycle at Arts Centre Melbourne in November and December. The best part about success? “It’s the greater opportunity to work with people. The people that I admire in contemporary dance are not striving to be famous, they’re just rooted in their work. I’d rather be recognised for the work than just being noticed more.”
Look out for … Benjamin is performing in The Dark Chorus at the Melbourne Festival, October 6-12.
If I could do it all again … “You learn from the dips, from the lows as well as the highs. If I chose to change something, I’m sure something else would dip later on. It would be the same rollercoaster in a different formation. I wouldn’t learn anything.” ● MYKE BARTLETT firstname.lastname@example.org

Benjamin Hancock is interested in bodies. The son of a Vogue cover model, this young dancer and costume designer has a growing body of work dealing with how we read “male” or “female” into the clothes we wear and the way we act. His gender-bending antics have led him to perform in unusual places – including the MCG, where he tossed the coin at a Swans versus Hawthorn match, dressed as the Red Queen.

Ask the wine guy
I love dry rosé. Can you tell from the colour if a rosé is going to be dry or sweet?
W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S
It used to be the case the paler the A rosé the drier the wine, but these days most rosé is in the savoury, rather
Foxeys Hangout Rosé 2016 (Mornington Peninsula) $28; 13%
than sweet, spectrum. What you can tell from the colour of a rosé is its style. Rosé gets its colour from the grape’s skin – after crushing the grapes, winemakers press off the juice when it reaches the colour and style they want. The longer the juice is in contact with the skins, the darker the wine. Pale pink rosés are delicate and bright, while darker ones are more robust in flavour and body. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \
Made from shiraz and pinot noir – a 3:1 ratio – this is at the darker end of the rosé scale. It’s floral, smelling of strawberries and cream, and it has weighty flavours of strawberry, cherry and blood oranges. It’s bone dry, racy and has a light tannic grip – just perfect for a charcuterie platter. ● Enjoy with \ Salami
Barry & Sons Rose 2016 (Clare Valley) $25; 13% This is a collaboration between Jim Barry wines and Liquorland so it’s widely available. It’s a crowd-pleasing drop – it’s not a wine to sip and ponder over – and well-chilled on a hot day it goes down a treat. Ripe strawberries and cream with a little honeysuckle are neatly balanced by a nice chalky grip and herbal kick on the finish. ● Enjoy with \ Chicken liver parfait
Oliver’s Taranga Chica Mencia Rosé 2016 (McLaren Vale) $25; 11.5% Mencia comes from northern Spain, where it creates perfumed, juicy wines. The grape’s in its infancy in Australia but it should have a good future. There’s a distinct rosé petal aroma to its bouquet of cherry, raspberry and spice. It’s all about the structure in the mouth – crisp and refreshing, with gentle berry and cherry flavours. ● Enjoy with \ Steak tartare
BARGAIN BUY Hoddles Creek Pinot Gris 2016 (Yarra Valley) $22; 12.5% It’s not labelled as a rosé, but it gets its pink blush from skin contact with the dark grapes. Winemaker Franco d’Anna says this wine is “out of the box”. It smells of blossom and stonefruit and comes alive in the mouth. From the racy, fleshy apple and pear flavours to the balance and structure there is a lot to like. ● Enjoy with \ Roast pork

There are more complex pizza combos for grown-ups too, and the crust – chewy and crunchy in just the right ways – is bang-on. A specials board offers more bistro-style options, such as pork belly or risotto with bottarga, giving regulars plenty of reason to return.

MODEL OF MPAVILION
Program highlights CULTURE VULTURES A performance by leading Indian tabla player Aneesh Pradhan on October 8 and a weekend of Indian cultural events on December 3 & 4. SPORTS FANS A talk on the Art of Sport hosted by Robyn Archer will feature MPavilion architect Bijoy Jain, who swam the English Channel at 18 and was in the Indian Olympic team, and artist David Pledger.
MUSIC LOVERS To celebrate its 110-year anniversary, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is holding a series of concerts, one at each site of the three MPavilions, on December 11. FOR KIDS Free events and workshops. ●
What does the architect say?
“I want the building to be … a place of engagement, and a space to discover the essentials of the world and oneself,” Bijoy says. “The building is an organic building in the sense that it emerges from the ground and, in time, can go back into the ground. That is then the closest representation of the human body, of humankind.” Why was MPavilion established?

wat c h \ D av i d B o w i e Nothing Has Changed
inger Steve Kilbey is telling me how he got the Smiths together. As frontman for legendary Aussie rock group the Church, he was performing at the Sheffield gig where Morrissey and Johnny Marr first decided to make music together. “They never gave us any credit,” Steve says. “They wanted to pretend that, like Athena, they leapt from Zeus’s head fully formed.” We’re supposed to be talking about another rock icon. Steve is joining Tim Rogers, Adalita, Deborah Conway, iOTA and the MSO for David Bowie: Nothing Has Changed, a musical tribute that will be the centrepiece of this year’s Melbourne Festival. As usual, the festival is a showcase of the newest and best art from home and abroad.
There will be a bold reinterpretation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, a fusion of dance and circus in Triptyque, and a live performance of Philip Glass’ music to Jean Cocteau’s 1946 film Beauty and the Beast. But when it comes to art that consistently straddled the twin streams of innovation and populism, nobody did it better than the late, great Starman. Bowie has had a profound impact on Steve’s life and career. The Church took their name from a lyric on 1972’s breakthrough album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and Steve says he was the first person in his Canberra hometown to have his hair cut in the style of Ziggy’s red mullet. (His mum did the dye job, but dad was less impressed.) “Getting my hand on that record, the whole world made sense,” Steve says. “I’m the most heterosexual guy in the whole world, but David Bowie made me want to dress up in blouses and put makeup on. I just couldn’t embrace bisexuality, when it came down to it.” Bowie’s death in January hit him hard. “I felt like an orphan. I was shocked, horrified. We never thought he was going
to die, just like we never believe we’re going to die ourselves,” he says. “But it’s an ill wind that blows no good in showbiz. Now everyone in the world is making a living out of doing David Bowie tributes.” mbartlett@theweeklyreview .com.au » Melbourne Festival, October 6-23.

Seven years in the writing, The Boss’s memoir manages the rare trick of both revealing and mythologising its subject. Like the best of his music, his writing here somehow becomes bigger and more universal as the details get smaller and more specific. His life is all our lives. In short chapters barely longer than a three-minute song, he evokes memories and emotions so richly it doesn’t matter if the story sometimes proves slippery. ● HEAR

A sought-after mentor to younger women in business, Catherine Cervasio founded baby skincare brand Aromababy in 1994. Today the brand is recognised globally as a leader in natural, organic skincare products for infants. Catherine recently won the Export Award for Excellence in Bilateral Trade at the Hong Kong Australia Business Association Awards. She lives in Kew and loves its amazing natural surroundings. “We are spoilt for choice with all the wonderful bush walks and river tracks in our area,” Catherine says. Where do you go for a lovely meal? Centonove is really nice – contemporary Italian dining in Cotham Road. For something more casual, I love taking my boys to George Calombaris’ Hellenic Republic. It has loads of atmosphere. For a great cup of coffee? I like Now & Then Cafe in High Street and have lots of catch-ups and business meetings
there. It reminds me of Portsea and Sorrento; a lovely, beachy feel with a French twist. For the perfect gift? Star Pharmacy has a great selection of prestige brands, including Dior and my fave, Chanel. Sometimes a simple, luxe red lippy can make an ideal girlfriend gift. For some me-time? Studley Park Boathouse is a beautiful spot and you can find me there most weekends. For a great bottle of wine? Dan Murphy’s is a wine-lover’s paradise … I love browsing their French selections and talking to their staff about what goes well with a particular dish I’m cooking. To get some exercise? I power-walk along the Yarra most Saturdays and during the week. It’s become somewhat of a ritual for me and my girlfriends. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG » aromababy.com

A staff member hands me a clipboard, a name badge and my happiness journal, and then whisks off to fix me a sparkling wine. Chairs are arranged in a semi-circle facing our consultant, Linda. Linda gets things rolling by offering some examples of little things that make her happy, such as her morning coffee, burning candles at night and buying fresh flowers. Then we’re given time to complete our own list. There’s no doubt it’s a feel-good exercise and I soon realise how simple many of the things on my list are, such as taking a bath or reading a good book.

My favourite subject at school is … Maths. I like solving the questions – it’s like getting into a mystery. I can’t live without … My mum. She cooks me food, washes the dishes, cleans my room and looks after me.
I couldn’t live without … My parents – they just did everything for me. I was most looking forward to … Growing up and having children.
I’m most looking forward to … Going to gymnastics. I like the bars – you get to hang upside down.
I was worried about … Probably failing at school and repeating a grade – I wasn’t very good at maths – Monica’s the opposite!
I’m worried about … If I hurt myself doing gymnastics or if I fall behind at school – that would be bad.
My favourite outfit was … I used to wear a long dress and some pants that were a bit flared at the bottom – they were my favourite.
My favourite outfit is … Dresses. My favourite one swirls around and I like to do twirls.
My most embarrassing moment was … I remember those days when I used to play kiss-chasey at school with the boys – that was very embarrassing. Monica is most like me in the way that … She likes fashion and colours – she’s always making things. She’s very caring and is also very fiery. ●

Day beds, polished timber floors and parlour palms evoke the golden age of travel on the upper decks, while a reading room, twin cinemas and swish new bistro give a touch of class to the main decks. ●

THE WILD WEST
ith place names such as Cape Grim, Suicide Bay and Dismal Swamp, north-west Tasmania hardly sounds like an idyllic holiday destination. But while Hobart’s stunning MONA museum has cast its glow of cool sophistication over south-east Tassie, the north-west has a different but no less compelling allure, rooted in ancient forests, a dramatic and bloody history and a breathtaking sense of isolation. You can get a taste of all three aboard a cruise down the majestic Gordon River, out of the postcard-pretty west coast village of Strahan. On a 5½-hour cruise, the 32-metre Lady Jane Franklin II crosses Macquarie Harbour to the treacherous mouth at the southern ocean – named Hells Gate by convicts en route to the notorious Sarah Island penal colony – before following the convicts’ course upstream into the heart of the world-heritage-listed wilderness area. Time seems to fall away as the boat sails deep into Tasmania’s past to Sarah Island, where ruins of one of Australia’s most brutal convict settlements are brought to life on an entertaining tour. There’s a more contemporary slice of history back on board as the crew explain how the majestic, centuries-old Huon pines lining the river were almost lost in the bid to dam the Gordon in the late 1970s, sparking Australia’s national conservation movement. Listen and learn or just sit back, enjoy the buffet lunch and get lost in the awe-inspiring views reflected in the tannin-stained water. Just an hour’s drive from Strahan’s quaint charms, the moonscape hills of Queenstown seem as if in another world. The enormous Mount Lyell copper mine that fuelled the town’s economy for 130 years is temporarily closed after a spate of fatal accidents and a plunge in copper prices. But the eerily desolate landscape, scarred by open cut mining and acid rains, is now a drawcard for artists. Local gallery LARQ was established by printmaker Raymond Arnold, who moved here 10 years ago and is a driving force behind the town’s biennial arts festival The Unconformity. Just as a revegetation program is slowly bringing new life to the barren hills that loom over town, the first shoots of artistic awakening promise to reinvigorate the area. Meanwhile, enterprising former mine workers have made the most of Mount Lyell’s hiatus, leading tours deep into the labyrinthine shafts that now lie quiet. For those unfazed by descending six kilometres into the earth, Queenstown Heritage Tours offers a fascinating glimpse into a subterranean world of backbreaking labour, gargantuan rock-crushing machinery and engineering accomplishments that few of us ever get to see. ● JANE HUTCHINSON firstname.lastname@example.org
Part panto, part great railways of the world, this trip into history is fun, informative and indulgent in equal measure. The 1896 railway that hauled ore from the world’s richest copper mine in Queenstown to the harbour at Strahan was an engineering marvel, traversing 40 bridges and climbing death-defying gradients through remote wilderness. These days, passengers ride the restored 35-kilometre route in style, sipping champagne as one of the original steam locomotives does all the hard work. ●

as a breast care nurse Delwyn Morgan helps look after
patients’ emotional as well as physical well-being
ach day of the working week, Breast Care nurse co-ordinator Delwyn Morgan travels from her home in Lilydale to Epworth Hospital in Bridge Road, Richmond. It can be a long trip in peak-hour traffic. But Delwyn says it’s a drive she happily takes to work in a role she is passionate about. Delwyn works with dozens of patients each week, some of whom are having initial tests for breast cancer. Others are dealing with the realities of treatment after diagnosis with a disease that affects about 16,000 Australians every year. “I’ve always been very passionate about psychosocial care for anyone with cancer,” Delwyn says. “Cancer is not just dealing with the physical, it’s dealing with the emotional as well.” Delwyn has worked in the cancer field for more than 20 years, in hospitals across
Melbourne. She joined Epworth last November and moved to the hospital’s Breast Service in March. She is one of a team of nurses at the service, which has offered support and advice to breast cancer patients for 25 years. “My job is really about co-ordinating and streamlining the care process from diagnosis and it’s also about being aware of their [life] circumstances,” Delwyn says. “I need to look at the bigger picture – like the support they have at home and how their family are dealing with things.” Delwyn acts as a point of contact for information, care and support for breast cancer patients. She helps to co-ordinate appointments and offers advice throughout their treatment. Her advice includes information about support groups, cancer services and

relaxation therapies to help them cope with what’s going on. “It can be very confusing to deal with a cancer diagnosis,” she says. “Not everyone requires extra help – some need a little, some need a lot … it’s good to give clarity. People like to know, ‘How this is going to impact on my world?’.” While the diagnosis is a shock for patients, Delwyn says it is during recovery that emotional and mental-health issues can
sometimes arise. “In the beginning, there’s a lot to deal with – with surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and the impact on the family,” she says. “Once the dust settles, that’s the time it can be hard … prior to that they have a plan, a reason to get out of bed every day for treatment.” Delwyn says most try to keep family life as normal as possible, but the fatigue and depression that sometimes occur, along with everyday stresses, can make this difficult. “Stress can be unrelated to the cancer – they may have a son who is very sick or a parent in intensive care, or they’re looking to get a place for a parent in a nursing home,” she says. “That’s why we really look at the bigger picture.” Delwyn has seen many patients at Epworth, some for a short time and some in an ongoing capacity. She believes each has been a privilege to work with. “People let you into their lives when they’re at their most vulnerable, as well as their family’s lives,” she says. “I feel very privileged to be there at the beginning of their journey and sometimes, sadly, the end of their life.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY » For more information, visit epworth.org.au and search for Epworth Richmond’s Breast Service or call 9426 6666.

housands of students in Melbourne this year would be only too well aware of the pros and perils of being in their final years of secondary school. There’s excitement and stress in equal measure as study and exams take over their lives and important decisions about future careers come into sharp focus. More and more, study and end-of-year results are taking over students’ lives to the point where they are not getting enough sleep, not eating properly or not seeing their friends socially. In short, many are stressed-out and not functioning well. Dr Peggy Kern, a senior lecturer at the Centre for Positive Psychology at the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education, says the pressure on year 11 and 12 students has been growing – particularly over the past 10 years. “What we’re seeing, and it’s actually a more recent trend, is that as education has shifted towards academic achievement and final test scores, there’s been more and more pressure put on young people such that

Having an active social life can actually help to enhance students’ ATA AT TAR results, writes melissa heagney the conversation becomes all about this,” Peggy says. “Cases of stress and anxiety disorders are skyrocketing, particularly in year 11. Some of the most stressed-out are year 11s as they’re gearing up towards their final year.” While experiencing stress and being anxious can be a normal part of year 11 and 12, it can also be the catalyst for mental illnesses, including depression. Educators are seeing the effects of this stress and Peggy says there is definitely more discussion about mental health in schools.
Part of that discussion centres around students needing to take time away from books and to socialise with friends.
Right balance Peggy says that while study is important during the final years of school, there’s a lot of research to suggest it’s just as important to take regular breaks including time for social gatherings, birthday celebrations and other events with friends and family. Research shows that students can actually
excel by finding the right balance between rest and study. Peggy has undertaken research in the area of well-being in schools, in particular looking at conscientious students who find the balance between study and rest to excel in their studies and lives outside school. “Some of my work has focused on the characteristics of conscientiousness. If you look at conscientious people’s habits, they take time out. They work hard but also rest hard as well,” she says. “They actually don’t work all the time –
“CONSCIENTIOUS PEOPLE WORK

they rest a lot during the day. In a sense we need more of that brought into schools with our young people.” While rest is highly recommended, Peggy says it can be difficult to convince many students to take a break when many of the conversations in school and at home centre around Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) scores, getting the course you want at
university and having a good career path. “I think part of [addressing the issue] is changing the conversation – that the exam is not everything,” Peggy says. “You want to be preparing for life, because no one’s going to remember your test score once you get past secondary school.” Peggy says great results during the VCE and a degree don’t always lead to steady
work, particularly when there are so many university students competing for jobs. “It’s fascinating that exam results have become these all-encompassing things but there’s actually very little you’re going to need in terms of future 21st-century jobs. “Social skills, creativity, flexibility and pro-social behaviour – these are the skills that are not taught in exams but will be
needed to get a job in the future,” she says. So how much rest should students get? While there’s a lot of research on how rest can help study, there are no solid suggestions regarding the length of breaks. “At this point we don’t have a formula for how much study and rest students should have,” Peggy says. “We’ve identified this huge issue but we’re still looking at ‘what is the right balance?’” She says students can find out what works for them with the support of their teachers and parents. She also recommends scheduling regular breaks. “I really recommend that students schedule rest and schedule fun time as well, as part of their studies. Work hard, rest hard because we need that rest to do well,” Peggy says. ● email@example.com » For tips on finding the balance during year 11 and 12 visit: vicsrc.org.au/news/ vicsrcvoices-finding-the-balance

Study for a healthy mind top tips to help students cope with anxiety
Mental health matters
Stephen says stress and anxiety in the final years of secondary school are common for students and aren’t necessarily a sign of a mental health condition. “I think anxiety is a normal emotion that everyone gets from time to time and certainly having exams would raise stress and anxiety levels,” Stephen says.
“It’s where this builds up to unmanageable levels that it needs to be addressed, where it impacts on day-to-day lives.” Stephen says a high percentage of mental health conditions are diagnosed in people when they are young – in fact 75 per cent of those who develop a mental health condition do so before the age of 25. Beyondblue and other organisations including HeadSpace offer programs and initiatives to help students not only cope with school-related stress, but also deal with the raft of other issues year 11 and 12 students can face, including relationship difficulties, body image issues, bullying and challenges at home with family. Beyondblue offers online information for students and parents including Brave Online, a website offering information and support for young people. “Our focus is raising awareness of how people can look after their mental health and offering support and information for those in need.” Beyondblue also has the Mind Matters
Beyondblue’s mental health initiatives
here’s nothing like those nerve-wracking minutes before turning over the pages of your year 12 exam after months of intense study. The butterflies in your stomach, the moments spent making sure that your pens work and doing that last-minute revision in your mind. Watching the clock tick over. It’s this type of high-pressure environment that can affect students’ mental health. But Beyondblue policy, research and evaluation leader Dr Stephen Carbone says there are strategies year 11 and 12 students can use to survive the pressures of exam time.
and SenseAbility initiatives, which provide information to secondary schools about helping students build the skills they need to deal with the stress and anxiety associated with studies (and those other issues). “It’s really about giving students the skills to build emotional and psychological resilience,” Stephen explains.

Stephen says there are a number of other strategies for students to survive their final weeks at school by staying healthy, active and positive throughout the stress of final exams. Regular exercise is recommended, generally and especially during exam time. Something as simple as taking a walk between studying can get the endorphins moving through the body and reduce stress. Eating healthily is also highly recommended – although it’s likewise recommended when students aren’t facing a stressful time. And students should make sure to take regular breaks away from study. “Having enough sleep is a big one – it’s really important for young people to have

a stable sleep routine, particularly over the exam period, because it actually consolidates learning,” Stephen says. “You can’t keep burning the candle at both ends and expect to do well.” He says keeping a healthy perspective about their studies and stress is also important for some students. Talking to family and friends – particularly if they have been through their final years of secondary school – can be a great source of advice and support. Stephen also recommends students monitor their self talk – that is what is going on inside their head – and challenge any thoughts that may make them think they are going to fail or not do well in exams. “If you’re too stressed-out you won’t be able to concentrate,” says Stephen. “You should be psyched-up, not psyched-out.” ● email@example.com

Balance & support
Melbourne schools are finding innovative ways to help year 11 & 12 students
Lamia Rockwell Director of senior years We provide an environment at MGGS in which the message is visible: “Life is more than a grade or a study score.” We promote the belief that our girls should aim to be participants in the full breadth of opportunities available to them. We show that tertiary institutions and employers will look favourably on students who have complemented their academic studies with sustained involvement in sport, cultural passions and community service. We also invite past students to visit our girls and share their stories of success, stories that illuminate the value of developing attributes through non-academic experiences and also to highlight the satisfaction that comes from being a more holistically developed person.
This year we have trialled a program for year 12 students through the Early Learning Centre – they help young students and take their minds off their own studies. Some year 12 students have said they enjoyed connecting with younger girls who share the same language and culture. Others have appreciated the calm spaces in the ELC. Most have simply had fun joining their youngest peers in their imaginary play. These activities offer something quite different to the typical focus on assessments and exams. Other programs include mindfulness education, yoga, boxing and a simple walk around the Tan. The Student Executive Council leads fund-raising activities and raises awareness of good causes. We also believe in spontaneous treats to demonstrate to the girls that we have their well-being in mind – and having fun is a really important element of that. This includes having Frozen (yes, the musical) singalongs at school assemblies. ●

Melinda Roberts Head of teaching and learning One of the Latin philosophies at Xavier College is Cura Personalis, which means care for the whole person. It is really about looking more broadly at education, so we put equal emphasis on our students’ overall education – academically and spiritually also. Because we are a Jesuit school, we have Ignatian Service and that means our students serve their community. They work in aged-care homes and with disadvantaged and marginalised groups. One of our most popular programs is the Friday-night school when students help children from non-English-speaking backgrounds with their studies. Year 11s have mandatory (volunteer) hours they must complete as part of their schooling

OR OTHERS” BECOME MEN F MELINDA ROBERTS
and it takes the focus off just studying. As the term 4 graduation celebrations are happening, students spend one day solely focused on Ignatian Service – some boys go back to their primary school to offer service, which they love. It really grounds them and reminds them they are finishing school – finishing their childhood and becoming adults. Parents are encouraged to be companions to their children on their VCE journey and are involved in their final years. Xavier hosts guest speakers for the students and parents on balancing priorities and on the challenges the boys face, such as mental-health issues and risk-taking behaviours. We have a very strong pastoral-care system that supports students. We also encourage boys to look after their health and well-being by getting regular sleep and eating healthily and give them tools to build resilience by, among other things, co-curricular activities such as playing sport (and experiencing the highs and lows that competition brings). We tell our students that in the scheme of things, the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) is important but there are so many other aspects to life to be prepared for. There’s a bigger picture and we encourage the boys to become men for others. To give back to their community. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

Mentone Grammar offers a EN TO N E C A D ET S \ M R comprehensive co-curricular program M GR A M A aimed at developing students’ interests outside the classroom. We see a balanced lifestyle as being critical to a healthy and well-adjusted individual but also crucial for academic success. Sport (inter-school and house), music, drama, debating, public speaking, cadets, community service initiatives, international, interstate and local camps, and the Duke of Edinburgh program are all examples of opportunities offered by the school and embraced by our students. Mentone Grammar encourages social activities and views them as part of a normal balanced lifestyle. We have a strong Mentor Program at the school and part of this is assisting students with their time management and planning. In year 12 we acknowledge there is a lot of pressure on students and have run meditation and relaxation sessions and encourage them to practise mindfulness by downloading the Smiling Mind app. We try and spread their workload evenly but term 3 is particularly stressful so we have implemented a retreat day, when we down tools for the afternoon and have some fun together. Last year we had a barbecue lunch and played some carnival games. We all took shots at dunking the principal in a dunking booth. There are VCE parent information nights at the start of each year that outline what they might expect throughout the year and how they may assist their children. ●

udi’s designers could not be accused of taking A outrageous liberties with the exterior of the latest A4. Their theme seems to have been “status quo”.
e’re so used to customising our electronic W devices that personalising a dashboard is a no-brainer … so thumbs up for the instrument
But beneath the familiar skin is the most extensive makeover in the car’s history, starting with all-new lightweight architecture and suspension systems. Bigger in most dimensions than its predecessor, the A4 is nevertheless about 65 kilograms lighter. Our test car was the mid-range front-wheel-drive 2.0-litre turbo petrol TFSI Sport automatic that can speed to 100km/h in about 7.2 seconds – similar to Mercedes-Benz’s C200 and BMW’s 320i. The Audi is bigger inside than those cars, plus a smidgeon more affordable. But it’s less composed under hard acceleration. You could step up to Audi’s all-wheel-drive grip, but that requires an extra $9000 for the 2.0 Quattro. A wise investment, however, is the optional adaptive comfort damper system that takes the sting out of the firm suspension. ●

A knob and a couple of buttons on the centre console operate the audio and phone on an iPad-like screen. It’s all very snazzy, functional and kind of familiar, so cheers to the Audi TT sports car for paving the way. The Audi’s interior is also sophisticated. The finish is exemplary and the rear seat leg room is the biggest in its class, thanks to an efficient front-wheel-drive layout. On the outside, the design might be status quo, but it is still stylish and appealing. Easy to drive, equally powerful and sweet, it’s not hard to feel right at home here. ●

The selling point Comdain’s BluePrint range has been created to offer home buyers a fast track to luxury, architect-designed homes with significant savings of time and money.
omdain Homes has launched a new range of architect-designed houses created to fast-track luxury homes and save time and money for buyers. The BluePrint range showcases four designs from ultra-modern to classic provincial, all scaled to suit innerMelbourne’s standard 15.25-metre width blocks, with prices starting at $567,000. Comdain Homes managing director John Coen says the team decided to develop the BluePrint range for the significant percentage of clients who don’t have the time or energy to design a luxury home from scratch. “A lot of people don’t have six to 12 months to dedicate to the design of a new home but they still want all the trademarks of a Comdain custom-built home – distinctive design, an intelligent floor plan, and quality finishes, fixtures and fittings. “We are also aware that many home buyers don’t think they can afford the quality of a Comdain custom-designed home. The BluePrint range changes the game for these buyers,” John says. Using a BluePrint home design saves significant time and costs in design and documentation. Whereas an individual architect-designed home takes six to 12 months to design and document, Comdain can start building within a few weeks. Designed for today’s modern family and downsizers, the single-storey 324-square metre Aisling has three bedrooms, two living areas, an outdoor kitchen and dining area and butler’s pantry.

“Vertical penthouses” with private lifts and their own rooftop terraces feature leading urban design with gritty Fitzroy warehouse styling and high-end finishes.
NO. 108 LEICESTER
collection of eight multi-level Fitzroy townhouses has been designed to meet a growing demand for contemporary luxury in Melbourne’s inner north. A minute’s walk from Brunswick Street and just two kilometres from the CBD, the design of No.108 Leicester Street takes inspiration from Victorian terrace houses and Fitzroy’s industrial heritage. The townhouses are stand-alone abodes with private entrances, individual lifts and roof terraces. Prices start at $1.5 million for a two-bedroom house. The townhouses have an average of 6.6-star energy ratings and flexible floor plans of 152-231 square metres over four to five levels with three-metre ceilings and wide-ranging city and mountain range views from their roof terraces. Italian timber-veneer Dada kitchen and Molteni & Co bedroom joinery are on a long list of high-end inclusions. Highly acclaimed design practice BKK Architects designed the hybrid inner-city abodes for developer FOURSQ. Their design acknowledges the classic housing genres of the project’s Fitzroy neighbourhood – along Young Street it’s a contemporary reworking of traditional terraces while on Leicester Street it’s a reimagining of warehouse conversions, with the corner between
designed as a distinctive urban landmark. BKK Architects principal Simon Knott says there’s a scarcity of beautifully designed and highly specified larger residences in sought-after inner-city precincts, particularly within smaller bespoke developments. “These townhouses are designed for people looking for a more interesting, sophisticated inner-city lifestyle.” Four townhouses have a flexible ground level that could be a second living area, third bedroom or home office, with bathroom and storage. All have two bedrooms, each on a private level with an en suite, and some have a balcony. Five townhouses have private street entrances and three are entered via the central shared courtyard.

36 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 5, 2016
o Margaret Porritt, founder of the Feathers boutique and fashion label, home is two places: a coastal getaway at Portsea and a South Yarra townhouse designed by her son David. With its single-fronted workman’s cottage facade still intact, the townhouse has been transformed into a Bauhaus-inspired home, with two bedrooms and three bathrooms, split over two levels of open-plan living. The exterior is bound by stone and copper, contrasting beautifully with the interior painted in minimalist white – think industrial concrete floors, white walls and floor-to-ceiling white glass doors that can close off the kitchen to create a gallery space. Margaret, who moved into the townhouse in 2001, likes to fill her space with modern furniture, French antiques and modern art as conversation starters. ● JANE ROCCA email@example.com
CACTUS PLANTS I have a small paved backyard and that’s where you’ll find these very tall cactus plants. It’s a bit like The Day of the Triffids – they just won’t stop growing and I don’t even feed them and there’s barely any soil, but I love the Arizona desert feel they give the place.
W H I T E WA L L David and I have built five homes together. When we started on this we liked the late ’90s to early 2000s minimalist look. I love openplan rooms, and this wall was designed to hide the kitchen when it came to entertaining.
G E R M A N G R AT E R I bought this grater last year while on a trip to the south of Germany, staying at Klinik Buchinger on Lake Constance. They had cooking classes and we used this fine grater, which helps maintain the flavour in fruit and vegetables. I use it nearly every other day, especially in summer.
K AT E D AW T E X T I bought this Kate Daw text in 2000. Kate was a finalist in the travelling Moet and Chandon Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria and became very famous for her text works. Elton John is also a fan and bought a lot of her art. The text is from Breakfast at Tiffany’s and I love the iridescent ceramic as it changes colour with the light.
PERSONAL SPACE AT H O M E W I T H M A R G A R E T P O R R I T T
M I L I TA R Y C H E S T I bought this at Sandy Lands in Prahran in 1985. This is what army generals took with them – the chest breaks in two. When they moved all their files and documents, this is how they carried them around. It’s in my bedroom.
TRUFFLE THE DOG Truffle is an American cocker spaniel and a rescue dog. He is 13 and comes everywhere with me. I had two boxers before Truffle and I just adore him – he comes to work, the accountant, the bank, you name it.

THE STYLIST M I R A N D A TAY G O E S O N T H E I N S I D E
ver since Mad Men took the small screen by storm, mid-century modern has re-emerged as a sought-after style. Clean lines and stripped-back forms are given depth and vibrancy by graphic patterns and bold colours. West Elm’s leading home stylist, Ella Carlin, gives us five tips for the style.
PA R E I T B A C K
Mid-century modern style is simple and considered without being sparse. Every piece of furniture and decor should be balanced with plenty of open floor space.
T H E D E TA I L S
Choose timber furniture with delicate, tapered legs and curved silhouettes – a prominent grain is also preferable. For upholstery, go for a button-tufted sofa or bed.
A bright splash of lime green, turquoise blue or mustard yellow should always
make an appearance whether in furniture, accessories or wall paint. Or try all three in the same space.
Play with different textures for added interest. Pair a shagpile or cowhide rug with an upholstered wool sofa and a hint of leather, glass or marble.
Mix and match bold, clashing prints in rugs, cushions, bed linen and artwork for a slightly retro feel. Glass vessels and shapely pendant lights finish off the look. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

LIFE ON THE ROAD 402 RIVERSDALE ROAD
he Riversdale Road lifestyle in Hawthorn East is proving too good to resist for home buyers. There are many well-known streets that make up Melbourne’s road network, although, it could be argued, none are as recognisable as Riversdale Road. It’s renowned for its leafy green surrounds, open spaces, period homes on large blocks and the junction where Riversdale, Camberwell and Burke roads meet in a hub of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. It’s a fast-paced and lively road but it also gives residents room to breathe. It’s just this type of lifestyle that is proving popular with home buyers, says James Cirelli, director of boutique residential specialist Steller. James says there’s a growing market of people wanting to make Riversdale Road their home – particularly those who already live in the area and are looking to downsize to a more low-maintenance lifestyle. Steller, which is constructing a new development in Hawthorn East –

Hawthorn East hotspots (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)
402 Riversdale Road – is offering a mix of six two-storey townhouses and 32 larger-format apartments to cater for the growing interest. “There is a growing demand for this style of living, which is suited to downsizers who don’t want to live in a small apartment in a large complex,” James says. “There are also those who have grown up locally and want to buy into the area, but cannot afford the traditionally large family home. So they’re being attracted to the townhouse or apartment that caters to family life.” James says locals are also drawn to Riversdale Road’s proximity to Camberwell Junction’s shopping precinct, the ease of public transport on their doorstep, access to some of the state’s best schools, popular cafes and restaurants, Camberwell Market and Kooyong Tennis Club. Adding to the attraction is the fact that Camberwell Junction has been slated for an upgrade. Boroondara Council is considering a proposal to give it a New York-style makeover so it becomes more like Times Square, with more open spaces for walking. “One of the main benefits of the proposed development is the increase in social economy, which will see the area really come alive,” James says. “Extended walkways, more restaurants, bars, cafes and entertainment venues will enable locals to live and enjoy their local area, which will be easily accessible on foot.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY email@example.com

THE LION’S SHARE 4K KOO OOYON OOY YONGKOOT KOOT ROA ROAD, HAWTHORN, 3122
ome people downsize with a sea change. Some people have a tree change. For the founding chairman of the Australian Stock Exchange, Ian Roach, and his wife Judy, it was a case of moving next door. Seventeen years ago the couple subdivided part of the garden surrounding their Victorian home in Kooyongkoot Road, Hawthorn, to create a battleaxe block of some 911 square metres. Then they asked three architects for their ideas on what to build. “John Wardle was the best,” Judy Roach says. “He came up with the idea of putting a high round wall around the swimming pool. It also forms part of the boundary between us and the original property.” Ian Roach died in 2003 after a distinguished career as a stockbroker and ASX chairman. Outside business, he was renowned as a man imbued with a spirit of community and generosity towards others. He and his wife supported numerous philanthropic institutions. Now Judy Roach is downsizing once more. She leaves behind a house that she says is great for entertaining. “I have great memories, but I think I like the light more than anything else,” she says. The award-winning architect’s design has stood the test of time. The house still looks and feels contemporary. It is both functional and stylish, with full-height doors, large windows and glass sliders. Signature Wardle elements such as the use of timber, stone and marble are there in abundance. They include built-in timber cabinetry, stone floors and white marble. The house reveals itself at the end of a long tree-lined driveway. The garage with internal entry is part of the facade. From the forecourt, past a wall of magnificent espaliered ornamental pear trees, a tall iron gate leads to the porch. The full-height front opens into the hall floored with New Zealand quarry tiles. A large powder room with marble vanity is situated near the front door. The house, which wraps around the swimming pool,
has a great connection to the outdoors. Sliding glass doors open the family and dining room to the north-west-facing courtyard garden. More sliders connect the living room to the garden, making it ideal for indoor-outdoor entertaining. The kitchen also has a long view over the garden from its stainless-steel benchtops. Gaggenau appliances, including a built-in steamer, are standouts. A white marble bench doubles as a servery to the family room, where the soaring void creates a sense of space. The living room, with an open fireplace and built-in shelving, a study or fourth bedroom and the main bedroom are all in the house’s second wing. In a wall of storage in the study, a “secret door” opens to a flight of stairs down to the purpose-built cellar. Sliding doors link this wing of the house to the pool and its courtyard. The main suite, which overlooks a private courtyard garden, combines practicality with the luxury of space. The custom-built walk-in wardrobe at one end of the room is fitted with storage to ceiling height. Its en suite, with white marble bench and basin and frameless glass shower, overlooks another private courtyard garden. A large opaque glass slider connects the bathroom to the swimming pool. Back near the front of the house, a staircase made from black bean timber leads upstairs where the landing is lined with shelves of well-thumbed books. A tiled bathroom serves the two bedrooms on this floor. One bedroom has a door to a tiny balcony. The second bedroom connects to a retreat that opens to a north-facing balcony with views over the rooftops. This sensational house is very private, yet only metres to Riversdale Road. It is walking distance to the shopping centre at the corner of Riversdale and Glenferrie roads and close to schools and transport. It proves the adage that good design lasts. ● MARIA HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org

This c1924 house embraces the period beauty of its era. It also comes surrounded by a magnificent garden. The interior is indicative of the time the house was built, with polished floorboards, french doors, strapped ceilings and natural timber door frames all key features. There are two bedrooms at the front; each has a view of the front garden and is close to the bathroom. From here, the hall opens to a dining and sitting area with open fireplace. At the rear is a family hub comprising the timber kitchen and a meals and living area. It has a terracotta-tiled floor and overlooks the garden. The third bedroom is also back here, along with the laundry and a powder room. One of the best things about the casual living zone is the array of french doors and sliding doors that introduce oodles of natural light and extend the interior to a deck, brick-paved courtyard and the pretty garden. There’s a side driveway with a carport and workshop. The property is close to schools, shops and the tram to the city. ● JULIAN HEALEY
This ground-floor apartment offers unique renovation potential because the apartment directly above will also be auctioned on the same day. Renovators should take note; a precedent has been set within the building that might allow for both residences to be joined. Opposite Fawkner Park and a few minutes’ walk from the Royal Botanic Gardens, No. 2 also has a generous courtyard, lawn and garden of its own. The interior is neutral and fully carpeted. There are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes either side of the main bathroom. The larger one has a built-in wardrobe and en suite. At the end of the hall, the apartment opens to a bright, open-plan living and dining area and kitchen. The outdoor spaces at the rear are fully embraced, with four sets of french doors along the southern and western walls. Overlooking all of this, the neat kitchen has a dishwasher and a door to the laundry tucked in behind. ● JULIAN HEALEY

TOORAK \ 17 ALBANY ROAD Graceful, peaceful and with just two sets of traffic lights between it and the airport, Albany Road is an address revered by busy executives. This Georgian-style, two-storey house, built in 2002, has the splendour necessary for corporate entertaining. But here’s the unexpected thing: it’s sturdy. The finishes – granite, cream carpet, herringbone parquetry – are opulent, yet this house is ready to roll with the chaos of family life and come up looking fabulous. The ground floor is given to communal areas, including formal living and dining rooms and a big meals and family area opening to a courtyard garden facing north and west. The dining room has cream-coloured walls and carpet, with sash windows to the landscaped front garden. The living room – beyond a stand of columns from the central atrium – has a curved, north-facing bay window. The parquetry family zone is elegant and welcoming and has a bay-window meals area. The kitchen has Kashmir Gold granite benchtops, Blanco appliances and a step-in pantry. There’s a laundry and a powder room. Upstairs, two double bedrooms have wardrobes and porcelain en suites with showers. The main bedroom , at the front, has a balcony, walk-in wardrobe and en suite with spa and shower. The property has a double garage, a gated driveway and security. ● ALISON BARCLAY

In a roll-call of Camberwell archetypes, Wellington would nail the definition of the perfect family home. Set back in a hedged garden, this tuck-pointed Edwardian house marries a quarter-acre (1000 square metres) with walkability to schools, train and Camberwell Junction. Indoors, the 1910 original rooms are complemented by a modern kitchen, family and dining areas with a north aspect to the terrace and lawn. The single-storey house has a Baltic pine hall, off which are the front living room – with blue-tiled fireplace, inglenook bookcases and mirror mantelpiece – and five bedrooms. The main has a fireplace, walk-in wardrobe and en suite. The others have wardrobes and share a bathroom. The lounge is spectacular, with six pairs of french doors to the covered bluestone terrace, plus a glass-walled wine room. The white timber kitchen has a 900-millimetre gas range, Asko dishwasher and Shaws ceramic double sink. The dining area has a sideboard. Wellington has a gated driveway and double garage. ● ALISON BARCLAY
Updated with quality fixtures and a neutral colour palette, this Edwardian house puts residents in pole position for an active and social lifestyle. The facade is stylish in dark charcoal, while bluestone pavers add class on the entrance verandah. Off the L-bend hall are three bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobes. The first has a triple-paned window to the forecourt and the second has an open fireplace under a quaint, deco mantel. Making a strong contemporary statement, the bathroom has two-tone tiling, a square basin atop a stone vanity and a walk-in shower. That modern feel continues in the kitchen. It is part of the open-plan rear zone and has granite benchtops and stainless-steel appliances. French doors link the meals area with the decked backyard. Private and north-facing, this looks just the spot for enjoying sunny downtime. It’s all a stone’s throw from Windsor Station, St Kilda junction for a choice of tram routes and within walking distance of Chapel Street, Fitzroy Street and Albert Park Lake parklands. ● KAY KEIGHERY
