f all the waves of immigration that have O shaped our most multicultural of cities, none has permeated Melbourne’s DNA quite

like the Italians. When you think about the things we love about our city: moody wood-panelled bars, gelati on a balmy night, excellent cafe lattes on just about every street corner, thin-crust pizzas, sitting at the bar at Pellegrini’s with a bowl of spag bol – so many of them we owe to the Italians. The first wave of Italians arrived here postwar, colonising Carlton and enthralling the locals with cheap and cheerful pasta joints and exotic delis. Seven decades later the Italians are still coming and still showing us a thing or two about living la dolce vita. One of this new crop is the delightful Silvia Colloca, aka Mrs Richard Roxburgh, who moved to Australia for love and is now charming us with her new food show on ABC TV and a new cookbook. Read her story inside and enjoy this week’s special edition celebrating our enduring love affair with all things Italian. ●

PETER WILMOTH meets the multi-talented silvia colloca

S

ilvia Colloca met her husband, Australian actor Richard Roxburgh, while making a film that probably doesn’t sit atop their respective acting CVs. The 2004 film was called Van Helsing. Roxburgh played Dracula and Silvia Helsing played one of his three brides. “Oh, hilarious,” she says. “The film was such a fun time for all of us. We worked together for six or seven months and we all got along so famously. “We were having the time of our lives and on top of that we fell in love. When we think of it as a career move we think, ‘Oh well, it’s OK, leave it or take it, doesn’t matter’ but without it we wouldn’t have this family. The director made an appearance in our wedding speech.” We’re in a Sydney cafe and Silvia, 40, is as vivacious and warm as she is in her new ABC television series Silvia’s Italian Table in which she cooks with, and shares stories with, three celebrities each week. She has an accent that is perhaps more Australian than you might expect (even though she’s been living here for eight years) and, with her striking Italian looks mixed with a healthy serve of Aussie self-effacement, Silvia has become Australian television’s newest food superstar. Right now she’s everywhere. Coinciding with the TV show is the release of her new cookbook La Dolce Vita, written to celebrate the Italian way of eating. “I am constantly asked by friends, ‘How can you eat Italian food and not be fat or unhealthy?’ There’s this misconception that Italian food is not good for you … and I say, ‘Guys, you’ve got the wrong picture, I’ve got to help you out here’.” I ask Silvia to explain Australians’ love of the idea of Italy. “I think it’s easy to romanticise because Italy is geographically blessed,” she says. “You venture around those hills and villages, and you’re confronted with incredible history … People are fascinated by a church that’s been there [hundreds] of years, frescoes that have been kept beautiful for time immemorial, and the vibrant artistic culture that produced such masterpieces.” Growing up in Milan, food was a central part of family life. Silvia’s parents were determined to raise their children with a discerning palate. “Everything happens around the kitchen,” Silvia says of her upbringing. “I was always sitting down with mum watching her cook, or with nonna. My brother became a chef. So obviously there’s something that runs in the family. “We’ve all been exposed to a really unassuming and authentic love of food where the love is giving nourishment and it’s nothing to do with the chef’s ego, which is something I struggle with when I go into restaurants and I see a lot of effort put into the food. It feels to me that sometimes that’s taken

PICTURE \ STEVEN SIEWERT It was tough leaving her career in Italy in opera, musical theatre and TV. “When I moved back here permanently in 2009 … I was a bit worried about my own fulfilment,” Silvia says. “I had a good career in Europe. Here I had to start from zero. It wasn’t very easy. I had to get an agent, I had to get people to meet me, to know I was here, because they didn’t really know my work. “What you’ve done internationally doesn’t quite translate until you’ve done Packed to the Rafters, which I did, because my agent said, ‘I think you need to do things like that because you’ll connect with people’.” Silvia has been described as Australia’s answer to Nigella Lawson. She laughs at the temptation people have to make comparisons. “Oh they love doing that, don’t they? It’s great, obviously she’s fabulous. People need to put you in a box. With me they’re already very confused because there’s the cooking thing and the acting and the singing and they’re like, ‘What are you?’ And I say, ‘Sorry that’s your problem, I’m all three and I’m a mother’.

“People are very confused because there's the cooking thing & the acting & the singing … I say, I'm all three & I'm a mother" start a food blog. “My Mum said, ‘Do a food blog, everybody’s got blogs’. Her blog, Silvia’s Cucina, took off in a way she couldn’t have anticipated. “I started having these conversations with people I’d never met who I was so in tune with. We were so like-minded. They started asking for recipes or suggesting recipes. I realised there was a conversation I could have about food with people who were interested in simple Italian home cooking. “We know restaurant Italian food … but there’s also Italian home-cooking. It’s a lot healthier and a lot more varied and it’s exciting for that reason. And very frugal as well. If you’re on a budget it’s a great cuisine.” She pitched a TV show. “I thought, ‘There is no way in the world that this will go through, it’s too good’ … It was an instant ‘yes’. “Australians responded so well to the show because it’s a country of immigrants, whether they’re Italian or Lebanese or wherever. No matter what part of the world they come from they can relate to my story as an immigrant.” » La Dolce Vita by Silvia Colloca (Penguin Random House) $49.99 » Silvia’s Italian Table, ABC1, Thursdays at 8pm.

“I suppose the parallel with Nigella is that we’re both good writers and we both do TV shows and we have dark hair. “Having said that, she’s going a lot more Italian in the cooking. I really enjoy her work. Look, I think a lot of us now have a career in food because of her. She started making it accessible to people.” Silvia says she and Richard take turns minding the children, Raffy, 9 and Miro, six. “Sometimes there are clashes,” she says. “A couple of years ago I was doing a play in Melbourne for a few months. Raffy had just started kindy and Miro was still a baby, 18 months, so we decided Raffy should stay in Sydney [with Richard] so he could go to school and I took the baby to Melbourne because he had to be with his mother. “They’d come and visit. It was a bit strange to have the family like that. But, as much as I missed Raffy and Richard, it was a nice opportunity for me and Miro to have that time alone – he really appreciated that I think. And for Raffy and Richard to have adventures, big boy time.”

S

ilvia says she juggles the singing and the cooking and the kids “because I have a whole lot of energy and I just have to make it work”. She says she's a better person when she can do it all. A couple of years ago she took a break from theatre work. "I’ve got an itch for it now. I kind of have to. If I don’t I get a bit anxious. I think I’m a better friend, a better wife, a better mother and a better daughter if I fulfil all my creative outlets.” She has recently returned from a seven-week stint in an opera in Brisbane. “So the last two months have been about

so far that it’s just to please the chef [so he/ she can hear] ‘Oh that looks amazing’. It’s not appealing to my other senses apart from vision – yes, it looks great, but that’s pretty much it. “I’m not a chef and everybody knows that … I never went to chef school, I’m just Italian and I have a story to tell, so my recipes often are a way to offer a deeper exploration about what it is to be Italian and eat like an Italian.” In Milan Silvia studied teaching, music and acting and she is grateful for the opportunities the city afforded her. “It was only since meeting my Australian husband that going back to Milan and taking trips I was appreciating the landscape. Yeah – Lake Como. It’s nice. I see what the fuss is about.” She lived in Milan until she was 28 and then moved with Richard to London for a few years. Their son Raphael was born in Australia because Richard was directing Romulus My Father (starring Eric Bana) in country Victoria that year. They moved to Australia permanently in 2009. When Raphael was a baby Silvia decided to

opera and performing. Now I’m putting my writer’s hat back on and writing another book. I have deadlines and the show’s coming out and the [new] book’s coming out. It all comes from the same creative spark.” I ask whether it is any easier that she and Richard are both in the creative industries. “I see a lot of my friends and colleagues who are married to people in completely different areas and businesses and they struggle to find that kind of support. “If you have to disappear for three days you just have to. They say that filming will end at 7.30 and it ends at 10.30 at night. That’s fine. Or you have to kiss someone. That’s fine. The fact we’re in the same boat allows us to receive that support, and that understanding. “It’s all up in the air. We never plan because everything changes. We understand each other. It’s a job that can give you so much but can take away so much as well, because there are no sick days, there’s no time off when you’re doing it. You get a lot of time off when you’re unemployed. “You have to keep these things in mind when you’re a family – are we going to make it this year? And how much do we want to work so we can have a good life without sacrificing too much time with the kids?” Silvia’s life has changed so much in three years. “I couldn’t anticipate that things would escalate in the way they did,” she says. “It’s been joyous. It’s not a career I thought I’d ever have. There are better cooks and there are better writers, to be honest. For some reason people seem to be interested in my story. “It’s been my lottery ticket to be able to tell my story in a way that had engaged people in such a profound way.” ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au OCTOBER 19, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9

What’s the buzz? Street food is so hot right now and cucina Italiano will always be di moda, so combining the two is sure to make a splash. Following a string of sold-out cooking workshops in Melbourne and at the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School in Sicily, Paola’s first book, Italian Street Food, hits bookshops this month.   In the beginning ‌ Paola describes her upbringing, which involved lots of time in mamma’s kitchen, as the best kind of apprenticeship. While her migrant parents instilled in her a passion for food and cooking, they also insisted she follow an academic path, so she studied dentistry.   The big break ‌ After withdrawing from MasterChef Australia in 2012 (when her father was admitted into palliative care), Paola realised what she wanted to do. Inspired by Venetian cooking teacher Enrica Rocca, she started a food blog called

Italy on my Mind, featuring recipes, photos and memories of family meals. It quickly gained traction and was shortlisted for Best Food Blog by ITALY magazine within a year. Invitations to teach and write followed.    Where to now? Paola divides her time between her home in Fitzroy North and her favourite parts of Italy, such as Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the north-east. “This region and its food is less well-known than other parts – I would like to bring this food to the world and become an ambassador�.      The best part about success? Paola’s father died just before she embarked on fulfilling her food dream but he is always on her mind. “I think about how proud he would be, having fled Italy after the war, starting again in a new country, to see his daughter bringing his culture to the world. He’d probably also wonder why he bothered spending all that money putting me through dentistry!� � ALICE ZASLAVSKY aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

t takes 24 hours to fly from here to Naples – the same amount of time it takes to prove the dough for a classic pizza Napoletana. Some may put this down to coincidence but, considering Melbourne’s recent winning streak in the global pizza stakes, you could be forgiven for wondering if there’s something in our water or if it’s something less tangible – a deep desire to prove ourselves, perhaps. Johnny Di Francesco of 400 Gradi stamped Melbourne’s status as a global pizza force when his margherita took out top honours at the World Pizza Championships (Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza) in Parma, Italy in 2014. Then, early this year, Silvio Serpa of Preston’s Pizzaly was named Australia’s best pizza maker at the same championships. And just last month, Andrea Cozzolino from Zero 95 in Doncaster East took out the coveted Caputo Cup in the birthplace of pizza, Naples, after pitting his margherita against hundreds of the world’s best. There’s no doubt that when it comes to pizza, we punch well above our weight – perhaps not so surprising in a state where Italian is the second most commonly spoken language and where the bonds to Italian food and culture run deep. By the time Johnny Di Francesco started making margheritas at 400 Gradi in Brunswick East in 2008, Melbourne was in the throes of “Il Ritorno” – The Return – to the pizzas of the ’60s and ’70s, which were seemingly delivered fresh off the boat by Italian emigres. Back then, they had been “all Italian and pretty good” recalls Rita Erlich, food writer and former editor of The Age Good Food Guide. “The heavy gloopy stuff came later on”, she says. It was only with the rise of fast food and home deliveries, that our pizza expectations mutated into the kind of cartoonish over-sized crackers you’d see

MELBOURNE’S PIZZA MAKERS ARE TAKING ON THE WORLD, WRITES ALICE ZASLAVSKY in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – American-style, big as the moon, and awash with packet cheese and every topping you could imagine. It seemed like we were doomed to suffer the Supreme injustice forever, “And then the wheel was rediscovered,” says Rita. Ladro, Gertrude Street’s first “serious” restaurant, became the first pizza place to garner a hat in the Good Food Guide, which named it Best New Restaurant in the 2005 edition. “It certainly raised a few eyebrows, but they took pizza to a whole new level,” says John Lethlean, the guide’s editor at the time. “I can still remember how good it was. They didn’t worry about making pizza round. It was all wonky shapes and wood-fired flavour”. The plaudits proved controversial but diners paid no heed to the critics. Soon a new breed of high quality, authentic pizza joints such as Pizza Meine Liebe, Mr Wolf and I Carusi started sprouting all over town, offering simpler toppings, classic flavour combinations and sides of salad. They trained us to expect pizza to be thin-based, slightly chewy and cooked through.

The master: Silvio Serpa of Pizzaly. New hero: Andrea Cozzolino from Zero 95 won the coveted Caputo Cup in Naples for his top margherita.

What we came to know as “proper pizza” turned out to be but one interpretation. As with all Italian food, differences of opinion abound – and each region is fiercely loyal to their own interpretation. Comparing Neapolitan to Roman is like chalk to cheese. Unlike classic Roman-style pizzas that are flat and firm, the Neapolitan pizza is soft and elastic so you have to fold it over itself to eat, or slice it with a knife and fork. For Johnny Di Francesco, this posed a problem. “Customers found the Neapolitan style challenging at first,” he says. “They’d send it back because they didn’t think it was cooked.” Thus began Johnny’s mission to retrain the habits of punters and pizzaiolos, and encourage us to come around to the softer, soupier Pizza Napoletana.

sourdough starter from his nonna Rachele and the dough has taken on a life of its own, growing and changing with time and dedication. Across town in Preston, Silvio Serpa is happily getting ready for another night of service at Pizzaly. “He’s 74, he should be at home wearing ugg boots with his feet up,” says his wife and business partner, Anna. “He came out of retirement to make pizza because he just loves it.” It’s no surprise these pizzaiolos are so passionate about what they do. Perhaps with so much distance between our shores and the pebbled beaches of Naples, absence has made the heart grow fonder. Away from the ease of wandering down the street for a bag of Caputo flour, our pizzaiolos are pushing themselves harder, turning the wheels of revolution here and abroad. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

This place is packed so prepare to sit elbow to elbow, warmed by the glow of the double pizza ovens. For kinfolk not in the mood for dough in the round, there’s plenty of pasta on the menu. But I would strongly recommend at least ordering the Paesana: taleggio and buffalo mozzarella cheese, potato and leek on a classic Neapolitan base.

role as Australasian Principal of the Verace Pizza Napoletana association (basically Italian for, “too legit to quit”) he has coached some of Melbourne’s best pizza makers, many of whom I visit while trawling around town on my search for the city’s finest. Although they still get the odd pizza sent back to the kitchen, the pizzaiolo community are spearheading an international pizza revolution. For Melbourne’s newest Neapolitan champion, Andrea Cozzolino, it all comes down to passion. “For me, cooking pizza is not a job. It is a style of life. You do not stand 10, 12 hours a day in front of a pizza oven unless you love it.” But it’s not just his love for the craft that gave him the win over 700 entrants from around the world at this year’s Caputo Cup. Ahead of the contest, the 25-year-old travelled the breadth of Naples, looking for the best fior di latte mozzarella and freshest San Marzano tomatoes (here’s a tip – if your pizza place uses S. Marzano tomatoes, they probably know what they’re doing). “The ingredients for a margherita are simple so you cannot hide behind them but you can also use this to advantage,” says Andrea. “In Australia, we use the same ingredients, we cook it in the traditional style and for some people they think it is too soft, not cooked. But this way you can taste all of the ingredients and if you cook it any further you lose the flavour.” Micheluccio “Mick” Carrafa of Pizzaiolo Micheluccio in Camberwell says making the perfect pizza is not just about sourcing the right ingredients – it’s knowing what to do with them. “You can’t blitz the tomatoes, you have to squeeze them by hand,” he says. “The mozzarella, the dough, it’s all done by hand.” He says authentic Neapolitan pizza relies on a sourdough base. “You have to feed it and look after it – that’s what gives pizza Napoletana its flavour and texture,” he says. He inherited his now 35-year-old

Walking into this unassuming strip-mall pizza place, all exposed bricks and tomato-tin-laden shelves, you could be excused for assuming it’s going to be more of the same old suburban hits – “I’ll have a Hawaiian with mushrooms”. But one look at the pizzas and you know this is serious. The margherita does not disappoint – with generous bubbles of fior di latte from local maestro Giorgio at That’s Amore Cheese, on an equally bubbly base. There are “special” pizzas too, with additions such as walnuts and balsamic reflecting the young pizzaiolo’s creative flair. ● ● 904 Doncaster Road, Doncaster East

Another family-friendly favourite that’s also family-owned, this place is made for big groups, with a larger, slightly more private area at the back to fit the entire familia. You can also pre-order metre-long pizzas with the same squishy, wood-fired base. Their walls and pizza oven are adorned with frescoes of Naples, encapsulating their pride for the birthplace of the pizza we know today. I’m a fan of quattro anything, and here it’s the quattro salumi – champagne ham, sopressa salami, pancetta, and pork and fennel sausage – sublime. ●

All exposed bricks, wood and concrete, this Thornbury treasure is built for after-school outings. When I visit, the ratio is about two-to-one kid-to-adult, and the level of juvenile joviality reverberates off the walls. If you have a noisy brood to feed, they’ll fit right in. Their pizza is made to exacting Verace Pizza Napoletana standards and has a satisfying level of smokiness that’s not easy to achieve from only 90 seconds in the wood-fired oven. Plan ahead for the Nutella calzone. ●

This new kid on the block is taking the CBD by storm, combining Neapolitan precision with New York convenience. You can buy pizza by the slice from the front counter (perfect for lunch-break cravings), or commit to the whole wheel. Complete with DJ decks playing old vinyl and an uber-cool beer and wine list, this is old school meets new school in a very Melbourne sort of way, which is only to be expected from David Mackintosh, the man who helped shape laneway hits such as MoVida, Rosa’s Canteen and Lee Ho Fook. ●

Referring to the quality-assuring Denominazione di Origine Controllata, this place prides itself on the best ingredients from Australia and the mother country. The offering goes beyond pizza and pasta into salumi and a cheese-tastic mozzarella degustation, served with such delicacies as white Sardinian anchovies and shaved fennel. The space is bright and fresh, perfect for warmer weather. The calzone (folded pizza) is my pick here. It’s moreish – moist, stuffed full of ricotta, ham, and spinach and, most importantly, flavour! ●

Founded by Melbourne’s self-styled Mr Pizza, Johnny Di Francesco, the original location at Brunswick East is all black, dark wood grain and concrete floors – with buzzwords on the wall (including the big G) and copper wood ovens breathing fire that’s visible from the front door. There’s plenty of al fresco seating here to take advantage of the corner location, so you can sit out the front and shout expressively at passers-by in your best Italian, folded pizza slice in hand. A Melbourne icon to bring visiting guests to for some pizza e bira. ●

ANDREA COZZOLINO’S AWARD-WINNING MARGHERITA

n

This is the one that blew me away with the most flavoursome, impeccably balanced margherita. After having eaten seven other margheritas on the same day, I knew what I was looking for. As we sat beneath the glow of the shiny disco ball, ’90s techno pumping through the speakers, my mouth was treated to tangy San Marzano tomato passata, herbaceous torn basil, stretchy mozzarella di bufala and lashings of olive oil – every element singing along to the doof-doof (of my heart). ●

OCTOBER 19, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 13


Ask the wine guy the party season, is prosecco a Q For suitable substitute for champagne? It makes a great substitute – and A one that’s easier on the budget, too. Prosecco’s a fairly neutral-flavoured grape that’s at its floral best when fresh. To capture the purity of its pear, citrus and blossom flavours, most prosecco is made like a still wine before being gassed up in a similar way to a Sodastream. It’s a much simpler – and cheaper – process than champagne, which is reflected in the price. But beware, there are cheap Italian examples that are sweet and one-dimensional (you can add peach puree to these for a delicious Bellini). ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

THE VINE W H AT T O D R I N K , W I T H B E N T H O M A S

Dal Zotto Pucino Col Fondo 2014 (King Valley) $27; 12%

Range Life Prosecco NV (King Valley) $22; 12%

This can be hard to track down – I’ve had it at Dal Zotto’s cellar door and at Marion in Fitzroy – but it’s worth the search. Cloudy and unfined, col fondo is the equivalent to Coopers beer in the prosecco world. It’s full of fresh green apples, biscuit dough, spice and complexity. This is creamy and energetic, with minerality, lemon and a delightful grip. ●

Here’s a prosecco with a little more complexity than most. Pear, peach and lemon aromas have a moreish zesty note. Its gentle mousse leads to ripe stonefruit and citrus flavours that are given life by a line of energetic, refreshing mineral-laced acidity. ● Enjoy with \ Sushi

Enjoy with \ Freshly-shucked oysters

Maschio Prosecco Superiore 2015 (Valdobbiadene, Italy) $15; 11% Imported direct by Dan Murphy’s, this ticks all the prosecco boxes – and at a good price. Floral apples, pears and green melon aromas are given a lively kick by zesty lemon, while its luscious, creamy mousse – a real highlight – gives way to a neat balance of rich orchard fruits and zippy grapefruit. ● Enjoy with \ Yum cha

BARGAIN BUY Enoteca AD Vino Bianco Frizzante NV (Veneto, Italy) $12; 11% With its low alcohol and breezy character this is just perfect for sunny afternoons with friends. There’s the lightest tingle of bubbles, before sweet apple, pear and pithy grapefruit flavours wash over the tongue. Here’s a wine that’s not trying to hard – it’s just cool. ● Enjoy with \ Parma ham

o matter the language, countries and cities are often referred to in the feminine; the mother country, your mother tongue. It makes sense then, that Bar Idda – “Her Bar” – should be such a homage to Sicily and all that she has given Italian cuisine. Upstairs, surrounded by glowing light and wood panelling, our lace tablecloth is swiftly hidden under a plethora of plates. Sicilian food was “designed to share” before it was cool. Dictated by a bountiful coastline and rocky terrain, the cuisine is seafood-heavy and made for warmer weather. Deep-fried school prawns are sprinkled with pistachio (Sicily’s nut of choice), chargrilled tuna steak “u fucularu” is served with a grape-laden broth, accenting the fish’s meatiness. We eat the ricotta gnochetti in silence (it’s that good);  creamy, al dente, with shaved sprouts, broccoli and chilli. Luckily it comes with a spoon, because I’m about ready to lick the bowl. Sicily isn’t huge on meat, so there are plenty of veggies on the menu and it’s all so fresh and light you’ll want one of everything – from the eggplanty capunata to the lemony finocchio (fennel). Leave some space, take the cannolo. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

EATING \ BURRATA may look like an innocent mozzarella ball, but cut into it and you’ll be rewarded with oozy stracciatella – a mixture of cheesy strips and fresh cream. Traditionally eaten within 24 hours, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, I add rocket and crostini for a substantial share plate. ●

See \ bonnie anderson

an album, Bonnie is instead making her theatrical debut alongside Mark Dickinson in the revival of 1970s musical Godspell Godspell. “I’m always trying to do different things,” Bonnie says. “I thought I’d give it a shot. It’s a pretty wild experience learning the script. I’ve done a bit of acting before, but doing it for a stage musical is a whole other thing.” Drawing on the New Testament, Godspell was a big hit in Melbourne 40 years ago in a production starring Colleen Hewett (who also appears in the new version). Bonnie’s approach to preparing for her first stage role has been thoroughly 21st-century, however. “All I could do at the start was look up as much as I could on YouTube. It’s cool looking at how the songs have changed and evolved.” She isn’t worried that the Bible connection might put some people off. “It’s rock, you know. It’s going to be fun. It’s not so innocent and it’s not throwing religion in your face. The show is cheeky, innocent and playful.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au


HOT TIX

+ ONLINE \ Watch the trailer GLEN HANSARD The name might not be familiar, MUSIC but the voice should be. Irish singer Glen Hansard first rose to fame as one of the band in The Commitments and went on to build a career as frontman for indie group The Frames. His breakthrough moment was as a broken-hearted singer-songwriter in hit film Once, which scooped him an Academy Award for Best Original Song. He’s touring his second solo LP of soulful, folky rock with a nine-piece band.

Set in the 1960s, when a separatist group was trying to overthrow the government, 887 makes striking use of film, projected images, puppetry and miniature models. It’s the director-performer’s first time on a Melbourne stage. ■ Arts Centre, October 19-22, $25-$129, festival.melbourne (SUPPLIED)

CAFE SOCIETY Woody Allen’s latest sees him FILM back on familiar turf. Set in Jazz Age Hollywood (and loaded with all the romance and nostalgia that suggests), it looks set to be a companion piece to his much-feted Midnight In Paris. Jesse Eisenberg is the latest actor to follow in a long tradition of channelling the director’s peculiar comic tics. He plays Bobby, son of a Bronx jeweller, who goes to Hollywood in search of stardom and instead falls for glamorous secretary Vonnie (Kristen Stewart). ■ Opens October 20, rated M, 97 minutes, cafesocietymovie.com

DANIEL HARFORD \ After nearly 10 years in the AFL, playing for Hawthorn and then Carlton, Daniel Harford exchanged his boots for headphones to become a guest host on sports radio station SEN. He eventually gained a permanent lunchtime spot and has recently become the co-host of drive show The Run Home. “You get a great connection with people,” Daniel says. “The art of radio is to get the person listening thinking that you’re talking to them.” He lives in Camberwell with his wife and two young children. Where do you go to catch up with friends? Dish & Spoon. It’s small and tucked away; you can plant yourself out the back and no one knows you’re there. And they have great banana bread.

For a fantastic meal? We like to go over to Kew to Mister Bianco. The quality of the food and the service is fantastic. It’s not a massive restaurant but you’re always guaranteed a great meal.

For a great cup of coffee? Choclatte just off Burke Road – that’s a ripper and they’ve got the best hot chocolate in town. For some exercise? There’s a great gym I go to. It doesn’t really have a name, but I call it Teddy’s after the owner. I’m not big on the whole massive public gym so this is a bit old-school, where the maximum is about eight people at a time. It’s a bit out of the way. For a family outing? We go to Lynden Park with the kids for a kick of the footy quite often and we do the Gardiners Creek walk all the time – Pokemon hunting. For some fresh produce? Top Shelf Fruits. It’s a great little grocer in Ashburton and you can always count on them. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG » The Run Home with Daniel Harford and Mark Allen is broadcast from 3-7pm weekdays on 1116 SEN

GIVE IT A GO We try

The promise A fun and informative class on how to make perfect gnocchi at home, taught by 48h Pizza and Gnocchi Bar’s head chef Michele Circhirillo.

GNOCCHI MASTERCLASS

The reality Michele insists making perfect gnocchi is not difficult – it all relies on the right ingredients. It starts with the potato, which has to be a good-quality white potato such as a Russet, kept in the cupboard rather than the fridge and boiled with the skin on. We peel them, mash them with a fork, then add salt and a special Italian flour called Caputo. The trick to getting a nice, potato-rich gnocchi is to work the dough just enough so that you don’t need to add extra flour, and Michele lets us in on his tricks to get the best consistency. Next, we roll out and cut up our gnocchi, making sure to sprinkle plenty of flour over the top to prevent them from sticking.

sauce and a glass of organic Italian Soave wine. We’re also given a bag of goodies, including all the ingredients to make more gnocchi at home. The pain factor Mashing your potatoes takes a bit of elbow grease – but it’s a good workout! Who should try it? Anyone who wants to learn how to make traditional gnocchi in a fun and relaxed environment. The bill? It’s $70 for the class and lunch – over about two hours. Classes are limited to 12 people.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

Wine Republic is a boutique wine store and bottle shop that sells hard-to-find varieties from Australia, France, Italy and more. Who’s behind the counter? Fiona Lim and Tom O’Mara wanted to create a high-end liquor store that still felt welcoming and relaxed. “We were always in love with craft, boutique wines, beers, spirits but we were always a bit frustrated by local offerings,” Fiona says. Fiona and Tom gave up their law and banking careers respectively and opened their first store in Fitzroy. They opened their Windsor store in August and have loved bringing interesting local and international wines to the south side of the river. “Windsor’s become that really cool, happening place,” Fiona says. What’s in store? A huge range of boutique wines, with lots of fantastic Italian offerings including a stunning pinot grigio from Sicily and the Chianti Classico from Poggerino winery in Tuscany. “With our international wines, we’re

They also recently got in some traditional Italian sparkling wine – no, not Prosecco, although they do have that too. “It’s called Franciacorta,” Fiona says, “and it’s more like a French champagne.” Who’s buying? Lots of locals are excited to have a new, specialty wine store nearby. “Customers come in and say, ‘You know what I want – tell me what I should try next’ because there’s that level of trust there,” Fiona says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

My favourite subject at school is … Probably German. I like it because we have a really good teacher – she’s really into it and we learn a lot about the world.

My favourite subject at school was … European history. I had the most amazing, inspiring teacher and I just loved it. She taught at Korowa until quite recently.

I can’t live without … Probably my laptop. I’ve got so many notes in there for school, and my emails.

I couldn’t live without … Probably my girlfriends; I had a nice bunch of mates. I remember we used to go to the oval and tan our legs at lunchtime – we weren’t very sun-smart!

My favourite hobby is … I really love rowing. I row with my friend and it’s really good – we go every weekend.

My favourite hobby was … Netball. I liked it because it was a team sport and it was something I carried through from Korowa into my twenties.

I am looking forward to … Definitely the end of my exams. I’m ready for summer and just relaxing. I want to go to Canberra and study at ANU next year. I want to do commerce there.

I was looking forward to … Going to university and just the next stage of life.

My first concert was … I haven’t actually been to a concert but I’ve been to a musical. I went with my grandparents to see The Lion King King. I saw Wicked with mum a few years later – it was really good. I am most like mum in the way that … We both love dogs. She likes to clean a lot, and I’m normally a bit messy. ●

The rearmost seating for passengers six and seven is comfortable and generous enough for adults and there’s even room behind for luggage, although getting to it is not exactly dignified. This is a city SUV with low-profile tyres and hard suspension. It’s quick away from the lights and has enough power to dive into holes in the traffic. At the same time the steering is light and supple and the view of the road is commanding. I love the huge centre screen, as big as an iPad and clearly based on one. It has three separate menu screens (toggle between them by swiping) and they control almost everything in the car, from the engine start/stop to the seat heaters – which are among the best in the business.

love Volvo’s lane-keeping technology. Say you have your head down trying to find a radio station and the car starts wandering across the road. As you drift towards the white line the lane-keeper tugs gently on the wheel to keep you within your own lane, while also reminding you that a radio program is not worth panel damage. You can have fun letting the car skip along the line by itself, and should it start following an errant white line overriding it is as easy as steering where you want to go. I’m a big fan of the XC90 and the R-Design Polestar is the sportiest number with low-profile tyres and a unique grille. The ride is sharp but it handles like a hot hatch and feels light and agile. The two-litre turbo-diesel is extremely economical as well as having remarkable punch. It’s very quick and nicely responsive.

LEARNING IN RESIDENCE AT WESLEY COLLEGE

BOARDING RETURNS TO WESLEY At Wesley, we recognise that young people are intellectual, emotional, physical, social, cultural and spiritual human beings. That’s why our new Learning in Residence program is carefully designed to enhance development across each of these dimensions. State of the art boarding facilities are available for senior students (Years 10 - 12) at our Glen Waverley campus. Enrolments are now open for full-time and weekly boarding options.

a contemporary model of boarding builds on Wesley’s philosophy & principles, writes Liz mClachlan facilities. The dining complex includes four learning and recreation spaces and will provide a hub for the senior years’ students after-school and weekend curriculum. Three staff houses and an administration and laundry building complete the Learning in Residence centre. Wesley College principal Dr Helen Drennen says the school developed a new and contemporary model for student boarding in years 10, 11 and 12 after much investigation and research into successful boarding schools around the world. The new model also builds on Wesley’s philosophy and principles in operation at its Clunes outdoor education centre in Victoria and the Yiramalay Wesley Studio School in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. “The design translates the importance of cultural and social engagement in the learning process for a modern world and supports the full integration of our residential and day students,” Helen says. Learning in Residence director Damon Emtage says the residential program is designed to be inclusive, integrated and holistic. “The new facilities and curriculum, aside from the residences themselves, are for all senior students. Every part of the program is integrated within the senior school so there is a seamless transition of support for all students – there are no divisions between day and residential students and every member of staff is a point of contact for every student.” Damon says the Learning in Residence program recognises that learning is a continuous process that doesn’t stop with

esley College has welcomed the first 35 students to its new $17-million senior years’ residential learning centre, integrated within the senior school of its Glen Waverley campus. The centre’s opening marks the reintroduction of boarding to Wesley College in Melbourne and follows its successes in residential learning in regional Victoria and Western Australia. An official opening by Victorian Governor Linda Dessau is planned for November 14. The aptly named Learning in Residence centre is light years beyond what most parents would traditionally associate with school boarding, with no large institutional dormitory blocks in sight. Instead a collection of eight stylish contemporary architect-designed houses with extensive decks is artfully arranged around a landscaped central garden courtyard. Designed by acclaimed Melbourne design practice Cox Architecture, the overall effect has far more in common with Grand Designs than St Trinian’s. At the heart of each house there’s a large light-filled shared space designed to make students feel at home with oak floorboards, a natural stone-tiled fireplace, table and banquette seating for reading and lounging. Each house has eight twin-share student bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and mentor living quarters. Residential students will eat their meals at long refectory tables in a new 240-seat communal dining hall shared with other senior year students and they will have access to the campus’ music, sport and drama

the end of the school day at 3.30pm. The Learning in Residence curriculum focuses on student development with academic, employment, extension and health and well-being programs. Students will have the choice of sessions including subject masterclasses, extension and remediation tutoring, vocational certification and yoga and strengthening classes. Wesley College plans to enrol a balance of international and Australian students, including students from metropolitan Melbourne, rural and regional Australia and indigenous students from Yiramalay. Wesley College’s brief to Cox Architecture emphasised the need for all students to feel secure and at home. Project architect Brett Seakins says the design team researched the concept and meaning of home in different cultures, particularly south-east Asian and indigenous Australian. “It was critical to achieve a balance between privacy and observation. Maintaining open lines of observation from the dwellings through to the central landscape was just as important as providing a bedroom and study nook that the students could feel was their own territory. “The level of connection builds gradually from student bedrooms with their private nooks to living areas and shared spaces such as the terraced fire-pit and recreation rooms within the adjacent dining hall,” Brett says. To minimise disruption to students and the school, the houses were built offsite, two at a time, by specialist prefabrication builder Prebuilt. The houses, broken down in modules, took a day to put together followed by two to three weeks of finishing work. The exterior is finished in engineered timber and charcoal metal cladding that wraps over the roof and down the walls. ● lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au OCTOBER 19, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 31

urniture kingpin Franco Cozzo was just 19 when he packed his bags and left Sicily, saying to his father, “I’m going to Australia, c’est la vie.” After 32 days on a boat he arrived in Melbourne on Australia Day 1956. “It was a beautiful day in summer and I fell in love from the first day. I thought, ‘This is a country with a big future’.” Franco started out selling white goods door to door. “I didn’t speak English, only Italian. I didn’t even know where I was, the company just picked me up and took me home each day.” It was this determination that led him to create his own company. “Anything I do, I do with passion, with love and with my heart,” he says. “In sales you have to sell the truth. If you tell lies, you forget them.” Now 81, Franco lives in leafy Templestowe with four of his 10 children. The opulent home is welcoming, with a stunning indoor pool. A mixture of modern and baroque furniture fills the space but it’s clear the real heart and soul of this home is the family who inhabit it. “My family is everything. Life has been so good in Australia, beautiful, and it will be until I leave.” ● JANUARY JONES jjones@theweeklyreview.com.au

he thought of moving from a large, well-established family home to a smaller dwelling can be a daunting one. But it seems many Melburnians are closing the gates on the family home and transitioning to a smaller, low-maintenance property that provides ease and luxury living. It’s a trend revealed in a recent study by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute, which showed that 54 per cent of Victorians aged 50-59 had downsized their home over the past five years.

CAMBERWELL MARKET

(ARSINEH HOUSPIAN)

The results showed that some downsized for financial liberation and a comfortable retirement, and others bought apartments for a New York type of lifestyle – living in a low-maintenance home close to amenities like trendy cafes, gourmet restaurants, designer shopping and medical services. Boutique residential developer Steller have been catering to this growing trend for the past few years. While they know downsizers are seeking a low-maintenance lifestyle, they’ve also discovered buyers don’t always want to compromise on space. Steller director James Cirelli says the ability to build larger apartments and town residences was one of the many reasons the company decided to develop a parcel of land in Hawthorn East, not too far from Camberwell Junction. The luxury apartment development at 402 Riversdale Road features 38 larger apartments and town residences and is attracting owner-occupiers who fit the downsizer demographic. James says the overwhelming majority of their buyers, so far, have been owner-occupiers from the baby-boomer generation. “I’m finding they’re choosing the area because of its proximity to Camberwell Market and the junction,” James says. “This particular project is one of the only developments in the area with less than 40 apartments. “It is also one of only a few that’s a short walk to the train station, the market, restaurants – everything is close by.”

James says some buyers have opted to personalise their living spaces by amalgamating two apartments to create a bigger home that includes Steller’s trademark high-quality finishes, fittings and fixtures. There’s also the high star rating – meaning apartments are very energy efficient. By including features that use less electricity and water, residents can reduce the running costs of a home by up to 25 per cent, he says. “It’s not only downsizers but young families who are buying some of our apartments because they can’t afford a townhouse or freestanding home in the area,” James adds. “It’s a good stepping stone for them and it’s close to the school zones they want to be in.” While size matters, it’s also familiarity

that buyers are looking for – to keep living in the same suburbs where they once owned a family home. “We have a lot of buyers coming from Hawthorn and neighbouring suburbs like Camberwell, Kew and Balwyn. They really want to stay in the area they know and love. “Plus there’s the fact that it’s Riversdale Road – you’re on a main arterial road with public transport at your doorstep so you don’t need a car. Everything is a stone’s throw away, including entertainment and restaurants,” James says. “It’s a perfect place to call home.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

Then declutter – banish those fridge magnets and toasters. Potential buyers want to see the space on offer. EXPERT ADVICE \ One of the fastest ways to eat into your potential profit is to overcapitalise. Don’t.

Cherie Barber, of Ten’s The Living Room, often opts for darker colours in her TV reno projects, but says the rule is to follow through with a lighter benchtop or vice versa. “Your benchtops should always be in contrast to the colour of your cabinets,” she says.

or four square metres of tiles,” says Cherie. Labour will take the bill to about $400.

FLATPACK \ A budget trick is to buy flatpack kitchen cabinetry. Self-assemble, then get a licensed carpenter or builder to install. “It’s far cheaper than going to a cabinetmaker or a kitchen company,” says Cherie. She often uses the Kaboodle brand from Bunnings. “You can get a new-looking kitchen, fully finished, for less than $7000 by using flatpack.”

STAINLESS STEEL \ Is your rangehood dated colour-wise? Cherie advocates using RustOleum’s stainless-steel paint to cosmetically refresh it. It also works on old cooktops, ovens and fridges, but will take up to five coats.

SPLASHBACKS \ Glass splashbacks are now a bit “ho-hum,” says Cherie. “Tiled splashbacks are popular,” says Alycia. They’re also the cheapest option. You can pick up standard tiles for “$15-$20 per square metre and most splashbacks don’t consume more than three

APPLIANCES \ “Always buy your appliances

in bundles [to save money],” says Cherie. Unbranded appliances are sufficient, she says, “for properties valued at less than $750,000 – you don’t need all the bells and whistles.” However Alycia says “if you’ve got a brand name that definitely helps.” Also consider updating the cooktop. “People highly value induction cooktops,” says Cherie.

hen Woods and Warner were asked to create a luxurious interior for the St Ives residence, the brief was simple. “Our client wanted an interior that reflected her refined yet playful style and made a nod to great Italian design.” The result is a striking example of modern Milano influences: a feminine approach counterbalanced by rich, dark colours, opulence and an edgy feel. Directors Sonia Warner and Jacinta Woods tell us about their Italian inspiration.

DESIGN ICON

Spanish-born Patricia Urquiola, who lives in Milan, is a global trendsetter in furniture design. This home is centred on her Love Me Tender chaise.

PA S T & P R E S E N T

Italians love seeing new beauty in a design

from the past. It’s common practice to pair contemporary design with classic treasures.

MARBLE

“It would certainly not have the Italian character if we didn’t push a little marble into the scheme.” The marble coffee table with gold legs was the perfect complement to the soft furnishings.

STYLE ITALIA

’60S & ’70S

Italians were very much a part of the post-modernist movement. “To balance the contemporary chaise and heavily buttoned sofa we drew on mid-century pieces.”

S O P H I S T I C AT I O N

The beauty and individuality of each piece is celebrated in a bold and dramatic aesthetic and a surprising colour palette. ●

BOOM-TI M- ME BELLE M-TI 54 HAWTHORN GROV RO E, HAWTHORN, 3122 ROV

G

race Park Estate is regarded as the jewel in Hawthorn’s real estate crown and Hawthorn Grove is one of its prized gems. The street is lined with predominantly intact Victorian single-storey brick houses, with slate roofs and verandahs. Houses are set back from the street and have broad frontages and gardens. Rosnor, c1890, was built towards the end of the first building boom in Hawthorn Grove, just before the 1890s depression. The double-fronted Victorian with slate roof and lace-trimmed verandah is easily visible from the street behind a grey picket fence. It has a substantial front garden, honed bluestone paving leading to the verandah and a hedge separating an off-street parking area from the garden. The facade conforms to Victorian symmetry: a front door framed by coloured leadlight and perfectly balanced by the two large windows on either side of the entrance. There’s more symmetry inside, with rooms off a central carpeted, arched hall. The first four rooms have open fireplaces and three have white marble mantelpieces. This house gets more interesting the further down the hall you venture. With formal dining rooms largely consigned to history, the front rooms here become a music room, bedrooms and a living room. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. A second bedroom and family bathroom with bath, frameless glass shower, granite benches and twin vanities are off the central hall, as are two more bedrooms, a laundry and powder room. Venn Architects were commissioned to create contemporary family spaces designed for today’s lifestyle, including indoor-outdoor living, swimming pool and easy connection to the back garden. The extension is seamless and stylish. The open-plan kitchen has large-format floor tiles and stone benchtops, full-height cabinetry and Miele appliances. Just past the kitchen, a built-in desk along one wall of the family room has two workstations – this might appeal to

busy families who want to keep an eye on children working at their computers. Bifold doors open the meals area to the porch and terrace, which is set up for outdoor dining with a kitchen and barbecue. Back inside, clerestory windows wrap around two sides of the living area, giving the impression that the ceiling is floating above the walls. They also let in natural light without glare. An open fireplace is a feature on one wall of the living room, as is the full-height window and the storage below the raised hearth. Glass doors and large windows connect the family room to the deck. Past the deck there’s a swimming pool with a bluestone surround behind a glass fence, a neat lawn and the paved outdoor seating area. The contemporary garage has a remote-controlled entry from the rear. One side wall is given over to rock climbing, which makes practical use of what could have been a blank wall. As expected, a house of this calibre comes with a long list of luxury appointments, such as hydronic and slab heating, commercial-grade cooling, automatic blinds, video intercom and automatic gates. Hawthorn Grove and its neighbouring streets came to represent late-Victorian and Edwardian prosperity. Earlier developments such as the mansions of the St James subdivision were exclusive land developments, but Hawthorn Grove and its surrounding streets were the first suburban development in Hawthorn. Consistent building styles that respect their neighbours and a consistent framework of gardens created our first garden suburb, which became the trendsetter for many suburbs that followed. Styles and fashions change and swimming pools are now common throughout Grace Park, but houses and gardens of similar style with proximity to services, schools and transport never go out of vogue. This house offers one lucky family a Hawthorn Grove address on one spacious level. Living in Hawthorn doesn’t get much better. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Built for pub owner Richard Nicholls in the 1880s, Lyndhurst was later home to a young Edward “Weary” Dunlop during his medical training. Nothing wearies this magnificent villa, whose polychrome Hawthorn bricks seem to gleam even on a dull day. The leadlight gives Lyndhurst’s age away – hand-painted with hummingbirds and flowers, they’re a testament to old-time artistry. The house was extended about 25 years ago, and the contemporary addition has a kitchen, family and meals area opening east to the rear garden, plus two first-floor bedrooms configured as one big room. The original, adjoining living and dining rooms have spectacular marble fireplaces. There are three ground-floor bedrooms, the main in the bay-window wing with a marble fireplace, a walk-in wardrobe and marble en suite with spa. Tasmanian oak floorboards grace the casual living area, which has an open fireplace and bookcases. The updated kitchen has Miele and Gaggenau appliances. A rear rollerdoor and carport ensure parking for two vehicles. ● ALISON BARCLAY

This new house is all about bold design, big spaces, and luxurious finishes. A few steps inside, the central hall opens up to a first-floor void and skylight. Polished timber floors extend throughout the living spaces on both levels. The carpeted main bedroom is just inside the entry and has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Opposite is a spacious office with corner window and, next door, a sound-proof theatre room. At the end of the hall, things really open up. Contemporary in every way, the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area is impressive. The kitchen has lavish marble splashbacks and stainless-steel appliances, while huge bifold doors open the living area to a rear courtyard and stylish lap pool. Upstairs is just as spacious, with four large bedrooms. One has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite and offers an alternative main suite. There’s also a second living space with bar and balcony overlooking the street. A four-car garage is attached to the house. Big, bold and luxurious indeed. ● JULIAN HEALEY

SOUTH YARRA \ 13 COOLULLAH AV A ENUE Built in 1936, this is an exceptional Tudor-style house in a prestigious pocket of South Yarra that retains its heritage while exuding modern features. Nestled at the end of a quiet, tree-lined street, this attractive house is fronted by a Paul Bangay-designed garden and classic brick paving. Inside, each room offers views of the surrounding greenery, making for a country feel in every corner of the house. To the right of the entry is a spacious living area with a ceiling of exposed timber beams, new carpet, a fireplace and huge casement windows. The dining room is next. Beyond it is the kitchen, with stainless-steel appliances, marble benches and a large walk-in pantry. It overlooks the casual meals area, which has a view of the rear garden. There’s also a sitting room and study on this level. French doors in the formal and informal dining areas open to herringbone-paved terraces adjoining the swimming pool, which is surrounded by garden. Upstairs comprises four bedrooms, with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom. The main bedroom has a window seat, plantation shutters and a luxurious stone en suite. Other features include space to park three cars off-street and proximity to schools, transport, shops and restaurants in Toorak and Hawksburn villages. ● SUZAN DELIBASIC

This Californian bungalow has had just two owners since 1925. Clearly all those glittering leadlight doors and that hall big enough to dance in were designed as a trap; people come, and they succumb. The vendors have done the place proud with a first-class extension, red brick and colonnaded like the original, with a capacious meals and family area and snug television lounge to complement the formal living and dining rooms. With polished floorboards, brocade curtains and olive and gold paintwork, it’s the model of a heritage makeover. The front living room has double doors to the hall. Stroll through the adjoining dining room to the kitchen, sleek in white Imperite with Zug appliances, white stone benchtops and mosaic tiling. The family area has french doors to the covered patio and lawn, which faces north-west. The ground-floor main bedroom has a large en suite with a built-in wardrobe and shower. Upstairs are two attic-style bedrooms and a bathroom. There’s a double garage, workshop and driveway parking. ● ALISON BARCLAY

This Englehart house took first prize in its category at the 2006 HIA awards, and a decade later one can pace through and think: “extremely well deserved.” Pleasantly boxy at street level, the two-storey house reveals its magnificence only to those who enter. The floor plan is aligned for passive solar benefits, with a brushbox-floored living room opening north to a long lap pool. Stroll down to the deck, pop the glass gate and there’s a three-hole putting green. With four communal areas and six bedrooms, including a ground-floor suite, the house would suit a three-generation family. Chefs will admire the kitchen, looking deliciously like almond nougat in flecked stone and with a waterfall island and Miele appliances. The walk-in pantry leads to a butler’s kitchen. A family room, home theatre and laundry complete the ground floor. On the first floor, parents’ and kids’ wings are separated by the large retreat. At the rear are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main, at the front, has two walk-in wardrobes and an en suite with spa. ● ALISON BARCLAY

GLEN IRIS \ 17 HOWARD STREET The architect behind the award-winning TarraWarra Museum of Art, Allan Powell, designed this house. He brought similar design concepts here, too, creating a minimalist facade that screams Bond film more than it does family home. The entry is bold, with floor-to-ceiling glass and double doors that perfectly frame the open fireplace in the living room beyond. Allan’s fantastic incorporation of a lush, greenery-filled central courtyard and prolific use of floor-to-ceiling windows delivers a private and sunny outlook for the main bedroom, study and formal living. There’s a freestanding tub in the main bedroom’s en suite, which – like the family bathroom upstairs – is modern and lavish. There’s also a fully equipped theatre room nearby. At the rear of the house, the kitchen has elements of natural timber, stone and stainless steel and overlooks a spacious, tiled family and meals area. Nearby there’s a second bedroom, behind which is a cool billiards room and bar. These rear living spaces share access and views of the back verandah, pool and tennis court. Upstairs, the first floor comprises that bathroom, a study and three carpeted bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. This level is accessible from staircases on either side of the house. ● JULIAN HEALEY

Dating from 1879, this early Victorian house couples rich historic detail with an extension in tune with modern living. The facade is a treat in tuck-pointed brick, with maroon lacework over the verandah and an arched porch heralding the front door. Inside, all spaces, including those in the extension, have high ceilings. There are five gas log fireplaces, two under marble mantels. Polished Baltic pine floors in original spaces and herringbone parquetry in newer ones lend earthy class underfoot. The sitting room off the entrance hall beckons with twin windows to the verandah, hung with plantation shutters. Across the hall, the first bedroom has a long desk, while the main gets a walk-through wardrobe to a large and lovely en suite. The open-plan hub stretches across the rear of the house. Two pairs of french doors in the meals and family areas link the interior with a compact and private backyard, where the double garage doubles as extra space for play and entertaining. ● KAY KEIGHERY

Don’t walk down Pridham Street if you’d rather not torment yourself with that wretched rhetorical question: “Why didn’t I buy here 20 years ago?”. The Victorian cottages have scrubbed up beautifully, none more so than this, double-fronted weatherboard, whose lacy facade and north-facing garden make it the pick of a desirable street. The single-storey house has been extended to suit a family of all ages. Kitchen and bathrooms are new, and the original rooms look fresh and immaculate in plantation shutters and polished floorboards. Three bedrooms (the main with walk-in wardrobe and en suite with shower) are supplemented by a rear studio with a fourth bedroom (or office) and en suite. The open-plan hub begins with a living area below a vaulted ceiling and ends with bifold doors that open the dining area to the deck and lawn. The white stone kitchen has a Smeg 900-millimetre range, Bosch dishwasher and island. For the smelly Sunday cook-ups, there’s a Beefeater barbecue in a granite kitchenette on the deck. ● ALISON BARCLAY

OCTOBER 19, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 135


Morrell. Going. Going. You’re gone? The home that’s won your heart is about to be auctioned. Anything could happen. Should you make an offer before the auction? When? How? How much? That’s easy. Just persuade the agents that you know the market better than they do, that the offer you’re making won’t be beaten under the hammer and that they won’t be humiliated by having to settle for something less. (But don’t over-pay.) Well, maybe it’s not all that easy. Maybe you need Australia’s most experienced, most effective buyer’s advocates by your side. What’s happening at the top end?
