charts, today’s music stars have been reduced to mere passing sound bytes, downloaded, deleted and forgotten with a careless swipe of a smartphone. It’s hard to imagine, for example, anyone still singing along to Twenty One Pilots in 40 years’ time, the way my generation still belts out the chorus of Khe Sanh with the slightest provocation. Even those of us who weren’t big Cold Chisel fans have somehow absorbed their music into our DNA. And the vision of a screaming, bandana-clad Jimmy Barnes is a defining image of the era. Almost four decades on, Barnesy has lost little of his rock god status – he’s still selling out concerts and now drawing crowds to a series of spoken-word gigs. There’s also a cracking new autobiography. Be sure to read our revealing interview inside – they just don’t make ‘em like that any more. ●

“In the midst of all this chaos music was the light for me”

THIS BOY’S LIFE 8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 9, 2016


PETER WILMOTH GETS TO KNOW THE KID WHO GREW UP TO BE JIMMY BARNES

T

he last time I hung with Jimmy Barnes was when I cadged a lift with him to an outdoor gig he was headlining. It was the quintessential rock moment: while Jimmy bounced around excitedly in the back seat of the limo, fans walking to the show peered in to see if it really was Jimmy in there. When they saw that mischievous face framed by the famous flop of tousled hair, they smiled and pointed and waved. And Jimmy smiled and pointed and waved right back. At that moment, while presenting to the world as the ultimate happy-go-lucky rock’n’roll wild man, living a life most young people would kill for, Jimmy had inside him a million demons stemming from a youth marked by unspeakable violence, poverty, alcoholism and many bashings – which he both received and dished out. Now he has brought those demons into the open with his new autobiography, Working Class Boy Boy. “I went through different emotions,” he says of writing the book. “I’d write stuff down and I’d be teary or I’d be angry. I loved my parents and they tried the best they could and I’m very forgiving of them, but sometimes I’d finish a bit and I’d be really angry because they shouldn’t have let us be treated that way. “Quite often I’d be lying in bed after writing and it would trigger off all these other memories, which led to another and another … It was quite taxing, but at the same time every step of the way I felt that weights were being lifted off me.” The poverty, violence and neglect Jimmy suffered as a child are shocking. At Christmas, he writes, “we didn’t want all the toys in the world. All we wanted was for them to love us and make us feel safe”. Now 60, Jimmy is in a great place. He still rips the room apart on stage, but at home he is the happy and healthy family man, free of the burdens of hell-raising. He doesn’t need to be the wild man any more. He exorcised most of his demons writing the book and is now preparing for a national tour of spoken-word performances. There may be a three-day growth, but it’s not cheap wine any more, rather a quiet whisky before bed. Jimmy says the words poured out of him while writing the book. “I’d spent a lifetime pushing them down and trying to suppress them. It was like a festering wound and I had to open it up to the air to let it heal. When I finished writing it I literally thought, ‘I could rip this up now, it’s done its job, I’ve acknowledged it’. “There is a lot of stuff that people are still going through out there. I’ve been doing book signings around the country and so many people are stopping me and saying, ‘Hey, I’m living in this now, what can I do, how can I talk about this?’. I’m telling people to get professional help and, if you’re in an abusive situation, get away from it. “It’s the sort of stuff that has to come out and that Australia as a society has to have a conversation about. There’s a lot of domestic abuse in this country, but people don’t talk about it. It’s kept in the dark.

Top of the class: Jimmy at Mansfield Park Primary School in Adelaide. (SUPPLIED)

Maybe my book shines a little bit of light on it, and the more light you can shine on this stuff the better.” He begins the book with his alcohol and violence-soaked early youth in Glasgow, Scotland, surrounded by aimless, drunk adults, and later in the tough Adelaide satellite city of Elizabeth, to which his family migrated in 1962. “There was a lot of drinking in the house,” he writes, “and with that came a lot of violence and abuse; not necessarily directed at us, but every punch and threat that mum and dad threw around hit each of us as if we’d been thrown against the wall.”

A

buse and trauma “became normalised for us”, he says. “We would climb out the windows, run away, block things out of our heads. As kids we were more afraid our parents were going to die than we were going to die. It put me in a lot of bad situations. It put me in a lot of places where I really could have been killed. “By the time I was 17 and left, I didn’t reflect on much of that stuff ever again, until recently. I was just glad to be out of there. I did everything to stop myself thinking about it. And that includes drinking myself to death nearly. I was very lucky to get through it.” Jimmy, top of the class and soccer captain, lost interest in school because he was distracted by the abuse. “School was a place where I could go and the teachers liked me because I could work hard, because I was interested. But eventually you get to a point where you go to school and your feet are freezing cold and wet because you haven’t got decent shoes, and you’re hungry and your parents are fighting at home so you’re worried and I just couldn’t even concentrate … that to me was a really sad time, especially looking back on it.” Eventually his mother left the family in 1965, when Jimmy was nine. “The last bit of light in our lives was put out that day,” he writes. “She told us she wouldn’t leave us. She loved us too much.” Jimmy and his siblings later resettled with their mother and her new husband, Reg Barnes.

Jimmy writes warmly about Reg, who came to have a fatherly role in his life (Jimmy’s father died 12 years ago). Reg, who died in 2011, told the young Jimmy there was an angel looking after him. “Well, he was that angel,” Jimmy says. “Most of the adults who spoke to us said, ‘Shut up, get away’. Reg was the only one who looked me in the eye and said, ‘What’s going on, are you OK?’. He was a caring soul. I owe a lot to Reg. He was a shining light in my life.” I ask Jimmy how his youth shaped him. “People who have come from that sort of poverty and that sort of abuse and trauma tend to try and overachieve,” he says. “When I was a young fella I got in gangs, I could fight better than most people. As I got older I could drink more, I could sing louder, I wanted to be a successful singer. Without knowing it I was trying to distance myself from that past as much as I could and become as successful as I could. “I guess it made me tough. It made me strive for stuff that was out of my reach. The way I was treated as a child, the abuse, the trauma, and the love from our siblings, the way we cared for each other, everything in that life seemed like a perfect melting pot to make a rock’n’roll singer. “At 17, all I wanted to do was be wild and free and to make people like me, and I was prepared to do anything, jump around and be crazy, to do it. “Unfortunately I realised if I drank loads and went crazy and played up and screamed and jumped off things, people liked the band. It appeared to me that the more I did that, the more people liked us. So that made me more self-destructive.” There was the vicarious thrill of watching Cold Chisel’s lead singer being so wild, but there was a huge cost to him. “One of the things I am thankful for from my parents is strong genes. I am tough. When I go and have a physical now, I can’t believe, after the life I’ve led, the doctors say I’m so healthy. “I had people dropping like flies around me because I could just outlast everybody. In the end it wasn’t really about having a good time, it was to numb and to stop thinking. When I didn’t drink and when I didn’t take drugs and when I stood still and stopped for a second, the stuff from the past would start to come back to me and it was haunting me. So I constantly moved, constantly drank, to stop feeling, to stop any sort of feeling.” Jimmy’s mother Dot died a few months ago, aged 83, the day Jimmy was sent the final edit of the book. “At that point I was feeling sad and I wanted to take everything out I’d written about her but it wouldn’t have been honest.” He spoke to his siblings about the book but not to his mother “because she was guilt-ridden”. “She was like me, she would have blocked it out as though it had never happened.” His siblings were shocked at his revelations in the book but also grateful. “Dorothy and Linda thanked me for writing it. It’s something that twists you inside if you don’t get it out.” After years of drug and alcohol abuse,

my melbourne VLADO’S, RICHMOND \ I have been going here for 30 years. One of the great restaurants. My kids have grown up there. MUSHROOM RECORDS \ When I was floundering after leaving Cold Chisel, we partnered and built an awesome career. Michael Gudinski is the godfather of my daughter Mahalia. He’s been my confidante, my friend, my co-conspirator in all the stuff I’ve done. I couldn’t have done without him and people who work with him. LIVE MUSIC PUBS \ We would play eight gigs a week in Melbourne, three on a Saturday night. Croxton Park, Bombay Rock. We used to play Bananas in St Kilda at three in the morning. The Melbourne music scene in the 1970s and early ’80s shaped and moulded Cold Chisel into one of the best rock’n’roll bands in the world. STATION HOTEL \ PRAHRAN I’d go and see The Dingoes playing there and would be inspired to play rock’n’roll music. ●

Jimmy says he is better than he’s ever been. “I’m very good. I went to rehab in 2001 and [later] had bouts where it was good and bad, but I had about eight years where I was very clean. I can now sit in front of the TV with my feet up and watch the news and have a whisky before I go to bed, whereas before I never drank for the taste, I would drink to get hammered and to forget. Now that’s the last thing I want to do.” Music, which is the basis of his next book, helped save his life. “In the midst of all this chaos and drinking and fear and shame, music was the thing that was the light for me. The stuff that was killing me, the only time it ever got vented without me knowing it, expressed itself in songs. That was the therapy for me, to let them out.” That famous screaming: was it letting go of some demons? “I reckon it was primal therapy. I can peel the paint off walls. I’m a good singer, I can sing well and I know I can scream better than most people in the world. Part of it was my way of letting out that anger.” ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » Working Class Boy By Jimmy Barnes (Harper Collins) $45 » Working Class Boy: An Evening of Stories and Song.

What’s the buzz? The first indigenous woman to make the finals of Miss World Australia (she finished in the final 10) Magnolia ‘Maminydjama’ Maymuru made her fashion debut in October 2015 at NT Fashion Week. She’s since walked the runway as ambassador for the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair in August and graced Chadstone’s spring/summer campaign. In the beginning Born into the Yirrkala community in East Arnhem Land, Magnolia was at an ATM when she was spotted by Northern Territory’s Fashion Week director, Mehali Tsangaris, in 2014. She declined his offer to take up modelling because she wanted to complete year 12. When they met again a year later, he suggested she enter Miss World Australia. She agreed on the grounds that she wanted to be a positive role model for her community. She says she wants the world to think of her simply as a model, not an indigenous one. The big break When Magnolia did a radio interview with 104.9 FM radio in the NT in April, it went viral. The station called her the next morning

to say the audio clip had been played 70,000 times in 24 hours. A follow up story on the ABC’s 7.30 gave her national coverage. But she says the most exciting thing has been gracing the cover of the NT News during NT fashion week. “I got so many calls from my community, friends and elders – everyone was full of praise and wishing me well.” Where to now? Magnolia knows modelling work won’t come easy. “I am really committed to make this work. I am prepared to stick with it.” She will also be helping to raise funds for children’s charity Variety NT as part of her role as the NT rep for Miss World. The best part of success “Being a role model to the young kids in my community. That’s the best buzz so far.” If I could do it all again She says she wouldn’t change a thing. “I guess if I hadn’t run into Mehali again I may not have decided to give modelling a chance. He’s been great”.● JANE ROCCA jane.rocca@fairfaxmedia.com.au

I

t’s hot, noisy and there’s a press of people around him, but Darren Palmer remains an oasis of cool. After eight seasons with the renovation reality show The Block, the celebrity interior designer is not fazed by the crush of fans at the opening of the latest transformation of a Port Melbourne soap factory under storm-heavy skies. “I think this Block is Block is definitely in the Block top three, along with Sky High [season 7, 2013] and Glasshouse Glasshouse [season 9, 2014],” Darren says of the heritage-listed art deco industrial building. “The contestants have been the most competitive that we have seen as a group and the result is obviously better for it. They have had a decade of exposure to other Blocks, other contestants and all the tips and tricks so the calibre of work is just so much higher.” As the Nine Network series has gone from strength to strength so, too, has the judge’s profile, with two books (Easy Luxury Luxury and  HomeSpace) to his credit, his own Carpet Court flooring collection Provincial Lane, and more Darren Palmer lines across a range of interiors products in the pipeline for 2017.

THE RULES

DARREN’S TIPS FOR A pain-free RENOVATION

■ PLAN AHEAD

■ COVER ALL ANGLES

Think about how much you want to spend, what you want to achieve, what is currently wrong with the space, what you want to retain, who will use the space, the mood you want to create etc. ■ WORK STRICTLY WITHIN YOUR

PARAMETERS A budget will be a very big part of that and will mean you don’t look at things that are ultra expensive. ■ DO NOT THINK OF CONSTRAINTS AS

A BAD THING They are what give you some clarity. This means you can filter out the things that are not right and focus on the things that are. ■ RESEARCH THE MARKET

If you are renovating with the express purpose of selling, you need to understand you are not following your own brief but the market’s. ●

(SUPPLIED)

“People can take things into their own hands & make a space that fits them & is beautiful”

Don’t touch a thing before you define your brief and create a frame of reference.

Queensland port city of Gladstone, where Darren grew up. “It was not design central. One of my aunts had carpet in her bathroom. That might have been what set me off, the carpet in the bathroom,” the 39-year-old says with a laugh. “As a kid I thought my house was just like everybody else’s and in the ’80s it probably was. But travelling to different friends and family members’ houses, I came to realise that people had different types of houses, different types of architecture. I was always interested in houses.” His interest in English, art and technical drawing at school led to studying fine arts at university and eventually going into graphic design for want of a clearer goal. It was only after he renovated his first apartment, and Belle Belle magazine saw fit to publish photographs of it, that Darren started to focus on interior design. In 2009 Darren was a runner-up on another renovation reality show, homeMADE , homeMADE , before homeMADE moving into a guest judging role on The Block in 2011. Block While acknowledging that renovation reality shows may create some unrealistic expectations for do-it-yourselfers in terms of speed, Darren believes the genre has generally helped educate the public. “It shows people they can actually take things into their own hands and can make a space that fits them and is beautiful. It doesn’t mean that anyone who was going to engage an interior designer wouldn’t do so now.”

He believes strongly in the accessibility of good design to every man and woman, but says this should not be confused with questions of taste. “If I enjoy classical music and you like soft rock, which one of us is right? The perception of taste and what is tasteful is entirely subjective,” he says. “The absolute starting point of any project should be to define your brief and create some terms of reference. How much do you want to spend, what do you want to achieve, who is going to use it? All those things become a set of parameters so, instead of looking at a whole world of choice, you are looking at it through the filter of what is right for you.” The Bondi home Darren shares with husband Olivier Duvillard, their young son Hugo and a tumble of pets follows that design mantra. The couple married in South Africa in 2011 and it’s clear that if the normally affable designer was judging the present government on its architecture of a plebiscite on same-sex marriage, it would receive a massive fail. “Marriage is about a commitment to someone you love and intend spending the rest of your life with,” he says. “How can that possibly be bad?” ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Block finale will air on November 13 from 7pm on Channel 9  » 9now.com.au/the-block » carpetcourt.com.au

NOVEMBER 9, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 13


Ask the wine guy I recently bought a wine aerator, Q costing just a few dollars. Do they actually make a difference to the bouquet and flavour or are they just a gimmick?

Most wines, especially reds, benefit from a little air. A quick splash into a decanter or a pour through an aerator really does breathe life into wine. Doing this won’t turn a sow’s ear into a silk purse, but can help open up wines and soften their tannins – important for young, tannic wines that would really benefit from a few years’ mellowing in a cool cellar. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

The best-known of d’Arenberg icons, this is a wine I look forward to tasting each year. This year it’s rich and brooding, with blackberry, cassis and dark cherry flavours. There’s loads of earthy complexity, too. It’s bright and concentrated, rather than thick and full-on, with strong, sandy tannins that unfurl with time in the glass. ●

Here’s a wine with a long life ahead of it. It’s immediately appealing, with pencil, blackberries, blueberry, tobacco and liquorice. There’s a hefty set of tannins and lots of concentrated, medium-bodied flavour. Right now it’s best to drink alongside food to help with those tannins. In my case it was a roast loin of saltmarsh lamb. ●

Enjoy with \ Lamb chops with skordalia

Heathcote’s a region that does big, balanced reds better than most and this is sourced from vineyards in Heathcote’s north. Here’s a prime example, with rich, earthy plum and dark berry flavours with spices and nutty oak in the background. It’s dense and concentrated, with plush, food-friendly tannins – this wine is marketed as being great with a steak – but is bright, juicy and easy to drink. ● Enjoy with \ Hanger steak

SUPER BUY Skillogalee Basket Pressed Shiraz 2013 (Clare Valley) $28; 13.7% There’s some detailed winemaking going on here: 14 grape parcels, each matched to a style of oak barrel that suited them, were made into individual wines before being blended into a single wine. Bursting with blackberries and dark cherries, this is rich and complex. ● Enjoy with \ Beef and Guinness pie

THE VERDICT

f you’re a seasoned traveller who’s been around the track, where do you instinctively avoid dining out? Tourist sites. There’s usually a strict radius involved and the further out you go – into some dingy hole in the wall you’d never hear about (but for their aggressive Yelp policy) – the better the meal you’ll have. Yet sometimes, those holes in the wall are literally just holes and, albeit rarely, those rooms with a view can really take your breath away. “Get to the point, Alice,” I hear you say. “Exactly.” Once you’re done feeling like an F1 driver on the Albert Park track, get yourself upstairs to The Point for the sort of romantic meal that’s usually reserved for Christmas movies. Andy Harmer’s food, a polished play on local ingredients with Euro technique (try the barbecue bugs with brown butter emulsion), is enhanced by the city’s lights twinkling on the lake, a comprehensive cheese cart (complete with tete de moine, shaved into ‘carnations’ tableside), and a 20-year-old wine collection, so you can drink Grange and Chateau d’Yquem by the glass. The roasted apple souffle with cinnamon ice-cream, like a cloud of apple pie, makes this a destination worth racing to. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

(STEVEN SIEWERT)

“I used magic as a defence mechanism, to scare people away”

ynamo isn’t your typical magician – if there is such a thing. Rather than being a flamboyant showman, the British performer is an unassuming figure, small and slightly awkward. And yet, Dynamo (aka 33-year-old Steven Frayne) is a magician of immense international stature. On his home turf, he has starred in his own TV series alongside Natalie Imbruglia and Samuel L.Jackson, released chart-busting DVDs and has sold out 111 arena dates. Most famously, he once walked across the Thames to the astonishment of passersby. Now he’ll be appearing (and quite possibly disappearing) on Australian stages as part of his first overseas tour. Dynamo is the first to admit the tour is something of a gamble. Although he knows he has plenty of Aussie fans waiting to see him, his sort of magic isn’t a natural fit for the stadium environment. Yes, there are stunning feats of mind-reading, materialisation and levitation, but there are no white rabbits, top hats or glamorous showgirls. It’s just him, the stage and a few thousand punters. “It’s very exposed,” Dynamo says. “I walk onstage like a stand-up comedian and create magic from nothing.” This stripped-back approach to magic makes sense, given that he learnt his trade on the streets – in a very real sense. Growing up on a council estate, the diminutive Steven first took to magic as a way of fending off the local bullies. “These two guys in particular kept giving me trouble every single day. One of the things they would do was put me inside a

wheelie bin, take me to the top of the biggest hill and push me down the hill, every day after school.” After witnessing one of these attacks, Steven’s grandfather (himself an amateur magician) taught the teen a trick that allowed him to use the bullies’ strength against them – effectively making him impossible to lift. To everybody’s surprise, the trick worked. “Because I’d done that, they thought I had crazy demon powers. They spread rumours around the school that I was a weirdo. But my grandpa thought it was quite funny and showed me some other things I could use to scare people away. If they were trying to break my bones or take my dinner money, I’d just say, ‘Look, I don’t feel no pain’.” To illustrate this to me, Dynamo bends one of his fingers in three, making it look as if the bones have been jellified. I might not be a thuggish teenager, but I’m somewhat freaked. Little wonder that, while magic might have saved his hide, it had an understandably

disastrous impact on his social life. “Because I used it as a defence mechanism, to scare people away, it did DYN AMO kind of alienate me a little bit. I became a loner. But I got addicted to it.” When the time came to attend college, he chose one far from his stomping ground where he knew he could make a fresh start. For the first time, he began introducing himself as a magician and quickly built a reputation, performing in bars, shopping centres and at college parties. Soon he was spending more time performing than studying and dropped out to go professional. “I went from being this loner and introvert to finding my voice through my magic. I was very confident when I was performing, but quite shy when holding a normal

conversation. It’s really been an incredible journey for me, having grown up on a council estate where you couldn’t really go outside and socialise because it was too dangerous, to now travelling the world.” The magic establishment was initially dismissive of the self-trained youngster. His attempts to join the celebrated Magic Circle at 16 were firmly rebuffed. “I wasn’t really their type of magician. To even go, you had to have a three-piece suit. I couldn’t afford that. I was lucky if I had a shirt.” A decade later, having built an immense reputation off the back of his TV series

Dynamo: Magician Impossible, he was not only welcomed with open arms but also quickly promoted to the elite inner sanctum. “I got a gold star as well. I didn’t even get a gold star at school, so I’ve come a long way.” But while Dynamo can now comfortably rub shoulders with giants of magic, he’s grateful to have come from more humble beginnings. “Part of the reason my magic stands out is I didn’t have anywhere to learn from, so I just created my own interpretation of what I thought magic should be. If I ever tried to perform tricks from books, it looked like a 15-year-old doing a 40-year-old’s spiel. I try to make my magic timeless, but it’s relevant to the world I live in, my story. And I think that resonates with a lot of people. Everyone can find something of themselves in it.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » Dynamo: Seeing Is Believing, Rod Laver Arena, November 12 and 13. dynamomagician.com

haun Micallef is always looking for a challenge. Over the past 20 years, he’s starred in an extraordinary stash of films and TV shows, had a crack at radio and written a book or three. As he puts it, he gets bored very easily. This month, he’s doing something new, making his Melbourne Theatre Company debut as one half of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple. “I think it’s important to put myself in front of a real audience every now and again so that I don’t become too used to the slightly easier laughs you get from a TV audience,” Shaun says. “Just to retrain my muscles. Everything I do on television is a muscle memory of that. If I abandoned it completely, I think I’d be abandoning the reason I do it.” Written in 1965, the play has enjoyed endless revivals alongside film and television adaptations. It sees neatness freak Felix move in with his slobbish pal Oscar after splitting from his wife. As funny as the script is, the play stands or falls on

the strength of the rapport between the two leads. Given he’s been paired with long-time collaborator Francis Greenslade, Shaun says chemistry won’t be a problem. “We met when we were 18 at university. We’re born of the same pressures and influences. When I perform with him, he knows what I’m going to do and I know what he’s going to do. If he’s doing the trick, he knows that I’m there to catch him.” That said, each of them assumed they would be the one to play Felix. “We both thought we were the neat one and the other was the slob,” Shaun admits. Although the new production remains set in the ’60s, it acknowledges that gender roles have changed over the past 50 years. “Felix was always presented as the odd character, the one who comes into this world of card-playing blokes and can’t function like a man. I think the world has caught up to Felix and he’s become a little more relatable. Oscar is seen as the dinosaur. So the dynamic has changed, but it still works.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » The Odd Couple, MTC, opens November 10 Tickets from $85, mtc.com.au

Having made her triumphant return to the big screen, Bridget returns to print in this sort-of spin-off novel. Oddly, the new book shares little more than its title with the film. For one thing, Patrick Dempsey’s character is nowhere to be seen, while Hugh Grant is reinstated as the possible daddy of Miss Jones’s bub. These differences ensure the novel is its own beast, with Fielding on fresh and funny form. ●

HE’S A LOCAL HERO BECAUSE …

eter Bol was 12 years old when he came to Australia from Sudan as a refugee with his family. “I wasn’t able to speak English or anything so I had to pick that up and there were other little challenges. It was a whole different culture,” Peter says. They settled in Perth, where Peter finished high school and started university, but then the Olympics came knocking. He was sponsored by AMP to move to Melbourne and train for the 800-metre running event at Rio 2016. But Peter didn’t want to only focus on his training, he wanted to help the community. “I’ve been helped so many times in my life, so I just thought, maybe I could also help someone else. There’s no better feeling than giving your time to someone who needs it.” Peter started volunteering at the Red Cross store in Hawthorn once a week, and has been working there for nearly a year now, helping

customers, doing inventory and sorting through donations. “I’ve always been interested in doing some volunteering work,” Peter says. “I was new to Melbourne, so it’s been awesome to meet people as well.” Peter didn’t make it past the heats in Rio, but plans to train for the world athletics championships in London next year and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. He also plans to finish his construction management degree and continue volunteering with the Red Cross. He wants to be a role model for younger people – showing them they can pursue their dreams and give back to the community. “You have to have a balance. If you’re doing sport, you can also study and you can also help people at the same time, so keeping a balanced lifestyle has worked pretty well for me,” Peter says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

GIVE IT A GO JEMIMAH CLEGG WORKS ON HER POSES

The promise Jessica Dewar moved to Melbourne from Adelaide a year ago with a dream of making yoga accessible to everyone. “For me, yoga is a way of life,” Jessica says. “It’s become a very elite thing and when you’re under the pump financially, classes like yoga are the first thing to go.” She set up her studio in Hawthorn East and runs donation-based classes, meaning students can pay what they think the class is worth. “It gives students the opportunity to pay for the quality and forces us as teachers to give the best-quality class.”

The pain factor Only the good pain of stretched and re-awoken muscles that means it’s working. Who should try it? Anyone who wants to practice yoga without an exorbitant price tag. The bill Whatever you feel it’s worth. Jessica says the average price people pay for a class is $15.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

A fantastic, inexpensive class? Of course! ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

(ISTOCK)

The reality Jessica studied yoga in India and is quite traditional in the way she teaches. We start the class with our hands in prayer position, and then we get straight into the Ashtanga yoga class. It’s a fast-paced class that focuses on a series of movements, often landing back into a lunge or a high bridge position. Jessica uses the traditional Sanskrit descriptions of the poses but also translates them for those of us who aren’t seasoned yogis. Later in the class there’s the option to do a headstand, but I’m not that co-ordinated. This is okay by Jessica and she shows me a less intense option.

The pay-off After a while I’m getting the hang of the flow and feel myself getting more comfortable and flexible. I feel a sense of calm and mindfulness at the end of the class and people hang around afterwards to chat and get to know each other – there’s a real community feel.

Specialist lingerie store Dickory Dock is celebrating 70 years of providing bras and undergarments to women of all shapes and sizes. Who’s behind the counter? It really is a family business – associate director Tiffany Steele’s grandparents founded the store and she says its main focus is customer service. “I’m very fortunate to be able to do what I do, I absolutely love it,” says Tiffany. “We’re all about the customers, we’re all about the service, we’re all about beautiful, quality-fitting styles.” You won’t find racks of garments to sift through in-store. Instead, each customer is measured and fitted by experienced corsetieres. “It’s very personalised, we take everything out to you and find things to suit your needs.” What’s in store? “We have things for women in all stages of their lives, whether it be their very first bra, to maternity, to bridal to post-surgical to fantastic sports bras,” Tiffany says. They also do full-figured bras – up to L cups – along with shapewear, corsetry, bodysuits and swimwear. The store’s in-house

G

reg Roberts is a musician and Head of Keyboard whose career has taken him from playing piano in the “pit” for major musicals such as Hello Dolly and Chicago to the music rooms of Camberwell Grammar School. He teaches piano and music theory and plays piano for school choir rehearsals and for the prestigious Australian Music Examinations Board. Greg met year 11 student, Nelson Zhao, when Nelson was in year 6. A talented music student, Nelson this year completed the Associate in Music Australia – a diploma in performance – on cello and piano. He achieved a pass with distinction both times. Nelson balances his love for music with his academic studies and is planning a career in law. ● SARAH MARINOS editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

NELSON SAYS …

I

(MICHAEL RAYNER)

began playing piano when I was eight years old and took up the cello the following year. I enjoy both instruments for different reasons. With the ● cello, I love the resonance of the strings and it has a deep, rich sound that can fill a room. I love the piano because of its mechanical nature and its ability to create such a big sound with both hands – that’s exciting. I have zero knowledge of contemporary music. I prefer baroque or classical music and now and again I listen to music from the romantic period. I’ve tried to listen to contemporary music but it doesn’t have that spark for me. Mr Roberts has reinvented my piano playing and he has been an important figure in my time learning music. I was pretty distressed and disappointed after my grade 7 piano exam. That year I skipped two whole grades and jumped from grade 4 to grade 7. I wasn’t ready and the result reflected that. Mr Roberts started with me again slowly and helped me build a strong foundation. Rushing through my grade exams was like constructing a building without proper foundations – things were always going to topple over at some point. Mr Roberts encouraged me to take things slowly, to pay attention to detail and that allowed me to enjoy playing again. Music is an outlet for relaxation for me. Studies can be intense but playing music provides balance. The AMusA exams involve many hours of practice at home and with my teachers. Mr Roberts has always been willing to give me his time. If ever I have to teach, I will apply what he has taught me – to be methodical, not to rush, to take the slow and proper path. I want to get into law in the future and that has been an interest since I was 9 or 10. But I couldn’t imagine living without music in my life. I will always play for my own pleasure. ●

“i couldn’t imagine living without music” – nelson zhao

GREG SAYS …

I

was six when an upright piano arrived at home and my sister began lessons. I remember annoying her by writing notes on manuscript paper and asking her what they meant. I pestered my mother to let me learn as well and eventually, in grade 3, I started lessons. But at university my decision to study music was arbitrary. It was music or architecture but something made me choose music. I studied at the Elder Conservatorium in Adelaide and then completed an Artist Diploma in piano performance at the University of Hartford in the US. Later I studied in London with Geoffrey Parsons, a renowned vocal accompanist. I also had an interest in music theatre and, in 1994, I got my first job on a musical. I sat in the pit for nearly 15 years. I played in Chicago, Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard. At the time I was offered a full-time teaching position at Camberwell Grammar School I had been approached to do Wicked but choosing the school was absolutely the right decision. I began teaching piano one day a week in 2003; in 2008, I went full-time. I was appointed Head of Keyboard in 2014. The music program here is significant – about a third of the 1500 boys in the school are part of the program. We have a symphony orchestra, stage and concert bands in senior and middle school, a junior school orchestra, a school choir with 300 boys and a chorale – a select vocal group of about 24 boys. Nelson has been a delight to teach. He’s gifted, personable and willing to learn. He came to me just after he did his grade 7 piano exam and it hadn’t gone as well he would have liked so we did some repair work to re-build his confidence. He sets himself high standards – and I set high standards for him as well. He did his grade 8 exam a few years later and his AMusA this year took years of preparation. Studying music is fantastic for the brain and I hope what we do in the music department helps students like Nelson in other areas of their education. ● NOVEMBER 9, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 27


BRADLEY BROWN HAS SPENT A LIFETIME SEARCHING FOR THE KEYS TO A HAPPY LIFE, WRITES SARAH HARRIS

t was the profound absence of a father that convinced Bradley Brown becoming a dad would be his most important job. “My father had a nervous breakdown when I was five and we never really got him back. I remember seeing him in a strait jacket in mental institutions. The few times he ever came home he was like a zombie on lithium,” the director and chief executive of Fletchers Real Estate recalls. The revelation about his father Harold’s mental illness and its impact on his wife and four children is one of the cornerstones of Bradley’s first book A Good Man, A Great Dad and A Loving Husband: Every Man’s Guide for a Brilliant Life. “I am not putting on rose-coloured glasses to say losing my dad to mental illness made me strong,” he says. “By the time I went to school I already knew about life. Did I have a bad childhood? No, I had a challenging childhood. I still don’t think it was a negative … it just was. Life isn’t about the adversity that is thrown your way, it is about how you handle it.”

The 57-year-old decided to share some of his life advice after years offering intensive leadership training for real estate professionals and drawing on earlier experience as a senior manager in the legal and accounting sectors. The father and stepfather of four believes one of the biggest mistakes professional men make is letting work overtake their personal relationships and home life. “When I worked in accounting and legal industries at the top end of town, so many of the partners had no relationship with their children and very poor relationships with their spouses, and the last thing that you could think was that they were happy in life,” he says. “I know some dads who work five, six days a week, 12 hours a day and then go with their mates to play golf on Sundays. I have said to those guys, that is really selfish behaviour because you work so long and so much that to leave your wife and kids when you have so little time with them is just not right. “People work hard, everyone works

“we are not taught how to plan our life, how to plan raising children or have a great marriage” hard these days, but it is about the choices you make. “My view is that most men are on a treadmill. I think men are raised very one-dimensionally. I don’t think men are raised with the expectation that as adults they have to be someone in a relationship, someone who is a parent. “Their life revolves around playing in the dirt, then playing with a ball, and then they grow up and discover life is a lot more difficult and challenging and they don’t have the tools to deal with it.” The Californian native, who settled in Australia as a 25-year-old, having decided it was a great place to raise a future family, believes planning is key to creating a balanced life. “We are not taught how to plan our life, how to plan raising our children, how to plan to have a great marriage. If you were in business and you were going to plan your next year’s worth of activity you would put in some

major categories; investment, recruitment, marketing etc. You can do the same thing in your life. I call it the book of life and you can plan out the major sections and chapters that matter to you. “It is not that hard to sit down and think what do I want to do, the same thing then with your children. Start by thinking what you want to be able to offer them in their life. For example, I made a determination early on I wasn’t going to have a weekend job. I was going to be there for my children every weekend with them. “From a young professional it was always very important to me that I was focused on all three areas of my life. My career has always been tempered by, ‘Can I mix that with being a good person, a good dad and make sure I am there for my partner?’. “I think that balance between the three is super important to the overall equation of having a brilliant life.” ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » Follow Bradley’s blog on facebook.com/ bradleyebrown » Books are available in print, MP3 or ebook from bradleybrown. com.au

Tips for a happy life 1

Prioritise what is really important. What are the three or four things that mean the absolute most to you?

2

Break it up. If one of those things you want to do is be a great dad, what are the things you need to achieve to be a great dad.

3

Allocate the time to achieve your goals and put plans in place to make it happen. Make decisions to support your goals; make sure all the resources are there in support.

4

Appreciate the journey as well as the destination. A lot of people are more concerned with what they don’t have, than what they have. They are more concerned with what is next rather than what they have right now.

5

Focus on the things that make you happy. Everything is better if you have a positive outlook on things. Every day something is going to happen that you won’t like, but don’t hold onto it. ●

Pacdon is a local business specialising in English smallgoods. What started out as a working holiday for UK-born James Arrowsmith has turned into a business that, with the help of his wife Jane and business partner and chef Peter T Tonge, produces traditional English smallgoods. Of course there’s sausages, but their biggest sellers are traditional pork pies and black pudding. Not surprisingly, haggis is more of a niche market. The produce regularly sells at Melbourne’s farmers’ markets.

chuca could teach a few country towns how to do tourism. Of course it helps that it’s only three hours from Melbourne and on the banks of the Murray River, but there are plenty of towns you pass through on the way there that can’t hold your attention like Echuca and its twin city Moama do.  First up there’s the Murray, but the food’s excellent, the climate welcoming and the tourist attractions charming. Perhaps the highlight of these is the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre. Sounds terrifically dull right? Despite the designed-by-committee name, the centre has managed to honour Echuca’s rich paddle steamer history without any danger of the exhibits sliding into tedium. Let’s put it this way – we found ourselves gazing with genuine interest at a display of reclaimed paddle steamer rudders.  The restored port is also an absolute gem. It has kept its original design, avoiding the temptation to go all modern and shiny. Bonus points for no “big” attraction in sight. ● JAN FISHER jfisher@theweeklyreview.com.au

Set a little bit out of town, the resort has made the most of its semi-rural location. The villas are dotted around the resort, some facing the lush landscaped central area, but we were lucky enough to have one overlooking bushland. Wake up to the sound of kookaburras and the smell of gumtrees and at night enjoy a drink on the deck while watching the sun go down. There are pools, play areas including a water park, barbecues and large lawns. ●

The result of a bowls club that took the plunge to build a world-standard restaurant in a small town, Junction Moama is pretty distinctive outside, with a giant birdcage over a fire pit. Even getting to the restaurant is a bit surreal. You walk past bowls club staples: bowling greens, a bistro, pokies and bars, to a luxe restaurant and lounge bar that would hold its own anywhere in the world. And the food is sensational. ●

It would be hard to ignore paddle boats at Echuca. There are many offerings, but two of the best are the dinner cruise on the MV Mary Ann and the lunch trip on the Pride of the Murray to Morrison’s Winery. The night cruise watching the riverbank slide by on the Mary Ann is, well, cruisy and the food is damn fine. You can see a bit more of the river during the day on the Pride of the Murray and enjoy lunch at Morrison’s. ●

ictoria may have lost its Garden State title but for those serious about their gardening, no zone does it better. It’s no surprise that some of the biggest names in garden design are based in Melbourne – and much of their work is commissioned from the city’s leafy eastern suburbs. That’s why Kew Rotary Club organises a Garden Design Festival fundraiser every other year, asking generous owners to open their designer gardens to the public. This will be the festival’s seventh and it shows no sign of waning; a record-breaking 46 gardeners have signed up and the event will be spread over two weekends. This weekend gardens in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula will be open, followed next weekend by rural areas including Geelong, Ballarat, Macedon Ranges, Gippsland, Bendigo and Euroa. The work of more than 36 design experts will be on show, from household names and design award veterans such as Paul Bangay, Lisa Ellis, Rick Eckersley, Phillip Johnson and John Patrick, to relative newcomers Inge Jabara and Paddy Milne.

In metropolitan Melbourne the designs cover a range of styles and sizes, from Victorian formal to tiny but perfectly formed courtyards, quirky spaces adorned with art and soft-edged cottage gardens. As well as a Victorian-inspired picture-perfect garden designed for a Hawthorn East couple who admit they are “extremely fussy … with high expectations” there are some classic formal gardens on show. One, designed by Jamie Clapham to complement a French chateau-style house in Toorak, has some gloriously photogenic spaces. They include a pebble-and-paving walkway bordered by topiary, a sunken riverstone mosaic courtyard, and interesting combinations of plant texture and tone. It is the first time the garden has been open to the public and Jamie will be on hand throughout the weekend to discuss it with visitors. “It’s a very seasonal garden,” he says. “It was built in several stages over a few years. The perennial borders and lawn are built over an underground garage, so that was quite a challenge for access and waterproofing. As the garden grew, the pool had to be extended to keep it in scale.” In Caulfield North there’s a delightful art deco house sporting a small flock of sheep on its lush front lawn. Except the sheep are playful beaded sculptures and the “lawn” is mounds of the alpine Scleranthus, fringed by the soft, velvety ground cover known as lamb’s ear – Stachys “Big Ears”.

“designs cover a range of styles & sizes from Victorian formal to … quirky spaces full of art”

“When I met the clients there was an old lawn at the front and some very unhappy plants but in the centre were the sheep sculptures,” explains designer Lisa Ellis. “The clients had bought them in South Africa. The garden’s colour palette is chartreuse and pale blue and green so it’s soft, but there is boldness between the foliage itself.” Lisa persuaded the clients to rip up the old red-brick drive, which was too narrow to use, and replace it with a maple walk that anchors the house within the garden. Festival goers have many bus tour options. Local city tours cover seven metropolitan gardens on each day of the first weekend, departing from Federation Square, and include an on-board gardening expert, morning and afternoon tea and a boxed lunch. Or spend Sunday visiting five Mornington Peninsula gardens with a catered lunch at Main Ridge. Much of the afternoon is spent at Musk Creek Cottage, a magnificent Rick Eckersley-designed garden. Over the Victorian Country Gardens Weekend, you could spend Saturday taking in the Euroa region, notably four properties with large, spectacular gardens designed by Rick Eckersley, Paul Bangay, Robert Boyle and Gail Van Rooyen. Lunch will be provided by a local restaurant, on the verandah of one of these beautiful gardens, with afternoon tea on the lawns of the last garden on the tour. The Sunday bus trip takes in five properties in the Macedon Ranges and Bendigo with a boxed lunch in the Malmsbury Botanic Gardens. All tour prices include garden entry. Profits go to three charities, including the new Monash Children’s Hospital. ● JANE CANAWAY » gardendesignfest.com.au

It looks great, it has everything and the ride quality is sensationally good. And with a surprisingly quiet cabin the Genesis is a great cruiser. The surprise is that the handling isn’t bad either, only getting a bit roly-poly when pushed hard. The big V6 has lots of lazy power with very linear delivery and the auto is beautifully seamless. I’m happy with anything that’s comfortable and has a good stereo and the system in the Genesis is a ripper. And so are the warranty and service conditions. If I had $90,000 for a car I’d have this in a flash, and if I only wanted to spend $66,000 I’d have the standard model. �

S h e r y l’ s v e r d i ct I love a bargain �

Some believe the definition of luxury was in need of a little rewriting.

few blocks from the Yarra River, The Parkhouse in Abbotsford is made up of two of inner Melbourne’s best-located apartment buildings. Designed by SJB Architects, each brings a contemporary style to the street, with 539 apartments – a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations in the two buildings. The Parkhouse’s modern interiors, by leading interior design team Carr Design Group, include dark and lighter-look options with either touches of silver/beige or dark ebonised veneers in high-quality joinery and aged-iron fixtures. Kitchens have Gaggenau appliances and modern, marble-look benchtops. The light-filled apartments have stunning views of the Yarra and the famous Skipping Girl sign in Richmond. The Parkhouse has shared garden and entertainment areas, a gym, pool and sauna and a golf simulation room. Young families will benefit from children’s rooms in which the apartments’ youngest residents can socialise and play. ● MELISSA HEAGNEY melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

The inner suburb has good schools, including Sophia Mundi Steiner School, Abbotsford Primary School and the University of Melbourne’s Early Learning Centre. Some of Melbourne’s hippest cafes are close to The Parkhouse with Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre and Victoria Street’s many restaurants a walk away. Public transport is so close that Parkhouse residents will literally walk out of their front door to catch a tram for the short journey – just 4.5 kilometres – to the CBD. Bike riders or keen walkers can link up to the Main Yarra Trail from a walkway between The Parkhouse buildings. ●

Opened in 2010, Moon Dog Brewery Bar has become a popular place in Abbotsford for a quiet – or loud – ale with friends. It’s a bar and working brewery offering inventive amber suds brewed with ingredients that include watermelon, truffles, chilli and pumpkin. Patrons can also indulge in a gourmet pizza from the pizza truck parked outside. ●

PHOTO WITH DAD My dad [Barrie] was 55 when he died from prostate cancer. I was only 24. He died just two months before my eldest son Jack was born. It was a very trying time in those last few months of his life. This photo is from my wedding day on January 20, 1996. Dad was very sick but didn’t look it here. I was grateful he was there. This photo shows genuine smiles from that great time together.

ARCHITECTURAL ICONS

rchitecture can define a city and, by extension, its unique buildings can take on a world identity. Just as the art deco Chrysler building is synonymous with New York, 30 St Mary Axe has become a London icon (and dubbed the Gherkin because of its shape) and the Sydney Opera House is a singularly unique building that evokes not just Sydney but also Australia. Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, it opened to controversy in 1973. When Utzon was presented with the Pritzker Prize, architecture’s highest award, the citation read: “one of the great iconic buildings of 20th century, an image of great beauty”. This status and distinctiveness is something, no doubt, that many modern-day architects aspire to. The Australian Institute of Architects has a list of internationally significant buildings. Walter Burley Griffin’s Newman College at the University of Melbourne is on the list as one of the American architect’s best buildings in Australia, with its geologically inspired use of stone in the design. Also now causing quite a stir in Melbourne is the latest architectural achievement – Collins Arch – a two-tower building with 34 levels and an eight-level connecting sky bridge. The building is already being dubbed as the

“pantscraper” because of its remarkable and soon-to-be iconic design. The building includes a luxury hotel, apartments, offices and retail space in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. Designed by architects Woods Bagot in collaboration with New York-based practice SHoP, the building is expected to attract significant international attention for its dramatic design and the holistic nature of the development. Woods Bagot director Nik Karalis says maintaining the status of Melbourne as the world’s most liveable city requires continual evolution and innovation. “Together with SHoP Architects, we are proposing new ways of improving the quality of urban life in our cities. Our joint fascination with the mixed-use typology adds genuine complexity for people-centric spaces at the human scale.” The dramatic development by Cbus Property spreads across an extraordinary site – an entire CBD block bounded by Collins, William and Market streets and Flinders Lane – and will transform the western end of the city, linking it to the river and energising what is largely a commercial sector. The summit tapers, evoking a mountaintop, creating spacious terraces and maximising outstanding views for residents.

VIEW FROM COLLINS ARCH

COLLINS ARCH

Within this shining sculpture will be 202 luxurious apartments and shared facilities, a 294-room five-star hotel, office space, retail laneway, a colonnade of cafes, bars and restaurants facing public green space and a covered public amphitheatre. “A city gets very few chances to innovate and change its urban fabric, but this is one. Collins Arch will energise Melbourne, strengthening the connection between the east and west areas of the CBD,” says Cbus Property CEO Adrian Pozzo. ●

H

awthorn is one of Melbourne’s most stunning tree-lined suburbs, home to many of the city’s well-heeled, artistic and successful people. Renowned for its open parklands, gardens and leafy streets, Hawthorn is a suburb that continues to bloom.

Since the early days of settlement, Hawthorn has established itself as a sought-after place to call home. Just six kilometres from the city, Hawthorn has more than 21,000 residents, is serviced by tram and train lines and is home to some well-known cafes, eateries and shopping precincts. Industry has given way to office buildings, while many Hawthorn residents make the short commute to the CBD to work. Almost 30 per cent work in the professional, technical or health-care fields. Hawthorn is also known for its excellent educational institutions, including Scotch College, a campus of girls’ school Strathcona, and Swinburne University. There are many open spaces available. One of them, St James Park near Burwood Road, was part of Hawthorn as it was settled and is still around today. ●

The story behind how Melbourne’s suburbs got their names is usually straightforward. Some have been named after historical figures. Others use the area’s Aboriginal heritage. There is some conjecture, however, over how the suburb of Hawthorn, or Hawthorne as it was first known in 1851, was named. Some experts surmise it was named after a conversation between Victorian governor Charles La Trobe and the owner of property Burwood Park, James Palmer. Sir Charles noted that the area’s native greenery looked like flowering Hawthorn bushes. Others believe it was named after a house on Creswick Street named “The Hawthorns”, built in the 1840s, about five years after the area was first settled. There are others who believe the suburb was named after a visitor who called on Port Phillip’s senior surveyor, Robert Hoddle. Others say it was because the area reminded Melbourne’s surveyors of Hawthorn in England because of its similar landscape. Whatever the reason, Hawthorn has proudly worn its moniker since those early days. Over the years Hawthorn has seen many changes in population and industry. From the successful gold miners who made Hawthorn home in the mid-1800s, to more working-class people in the area who worked for the local brickworks and for Fowler’s Vacola, which produced glass jars and bottles for home preserving and pickling in the 1920s. With many grand estates built over the years under the watchful eyes of the Boroondara Roads Board – which was the first municipal authority in the area, set up in 1850s – the area has become one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs, now in the City of Boroondara. The name Boroondara, coincidently, is an Aboriginal word which is believed to mean place of shade. ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

HAWTHORN FOOTBALL CLUB One can’t mention the suburb of Hawthorn without mentioning its champion AFL football club, the Hawks. Officially founded in 1902, Hawthorn was first known as the Mayblooms before changing the name to the Hawks in 1943. While it went through a few different uniform changes, the club adopted its well-known yellow guernsey with brown stripes in 1950. Glenferrie Oval was home to the club for decades before moving to Waverley Park in Mulgrave. While its heart is in Hawthorn, the club has a second home at Aurora Park in Tasmania. Hawthorn has been one of the most successful teams in the AFL over the past decade, having won four AFL premierships. ● hawthornfc.com.au

t’s a house with a secret. A hidden secret. We can tell you what it is, but not where. Only those house hunters with more than $11 million to splurge on this new palatial home get the answer. It doesn’t appear on the floor plan, but it’s there all right – a panic room. Concrete-lined and fitted with the latest technology, the panic room is concealed among all the other luxurious appointments in this four-level home. The house stands tall and proud in the street, tucked behind prestigious Clendon Road, and has already made its mark on the landscape. Its grandeur comes from the luxury of space, high ceilings – more than three metres – and the all-round high-quality finishes and fittings. With apologies to the great architect Le Corbusier who said “home is a machine for living in”, then this is some machine. From basement to upper level terrace, this property could almost be a suburb in its own right. Live, work and play are all available without going out the front gate. It has four bedrooms, four en suites, formal and informal living rooms, study, kitchen, butler’s pantry, terrace with kitchen, cigar and cellar room, sauna and steam room, 12-seater home theatre, gym, and fully automated self-cleaning pool and spa. The dramatic entry sets the tone with a formal lounge and dining on one side and study on the other. Travertine tiled floors provide continuity throughout with grey woollen carpets in the formal rooms, bedrooms, study and on the gently curved staircase. The sheer drama and opulence of the kitchen comes from its abundant use of Calacatta marble in the benchtops and the island bench combined with timber and white cabinets offset by a smoky mirrored glass splashback. A suite of the latest Miele appliances is daunting.

An oversized butler’s pantry doubles as a second kitchen with more Miele appliances. (For the statistically inclined, the property has 20 Miele appliances between the kitchen the butler’s pantry, the terrace kitchen and the cigar room.) The island bench separates the kitchen from the meals and living areas where a wall of storage also has a Calacatta benchtop. Bifold glass doors open the informal area to the outdoor entertainment zone overlooking the pool and spa. A lift goes from the basement to all levels. All bedrooms are on the first floor. The main takes the front position with a balcony looking down onto the street and out to the east. Its lavish marble en suite includes an oval bath, two showers and a sleek mirrored vanity. In the glamorous dressing room, mirrored cabinets and storage line the walls. Every bedroom comes with its own en suite and walk-in-wardrobe. The largest of the three other bedrooms has a private balcony. On the second floor, a large rumpus room and another casual area with bar and kitchen offer more entertainment options. The crowd is likely to spill out to the al fresco area with its barbecue and borrowed views of neighbouring trees and local landmarks including the spire of St John’s Church. The basement level is made up of a six-car garage, steam room, gym and sauna, but the standout has to be the cigar lounge. Painted in deep chocolate tones, with built-in walnut cabinets and marble-topped bar, it has a Miele under-bench wine fridge, integrated coffee machine and microwave. A cigar humidor and glass-fronted wine storage complete this room and give it a decidedly clubby atmosphere. Still in this part of the house, the luxurious home theatre with panelled walls and tiered seating offers another entertainment option. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

This wonderful late-1920s house is in the centre of Deepdene’s coveted Reid Estate. Situated on a prized corner block, the house has seen recent renovations. Inside, it showcases a modern kitchen and bathrooms while retaining virtually all of its heritage grandeur. The exterior is distinct for its time period with a rich embellished facade. Inside, leadlight windows and polished timber floors feature extensively throughout. The large formal living space and adjoining formal dining room are undoubtedly the most period-centric spaces. Open fireplaces feature in both. Nearby a study area creates a central junction between two bedrooms at one end of the house and the kitchen and casual living spaces at the rear. Both ground-floor bedrooms share access to a bright bathroom. The black stone kitchen pops with its bright-red oven and the family room at the rear opens to an deck and in-ground pool below. The two additional loft-style bedrooms upstairs are accessed via a spiral staircase in the study. ● JULIAN HEALEY

This bright and renovated family house built in 1950 embraces some interesting geometry to create a vibrant and unique floor plan. The renovation has since brought forth a far more contemporary interior and even added features such as triple-glazed windows. Extensive gardens at the front create a private and tranquil buffer to the street. Inside, the three main living spaces are all largely open-plan. They centre on a wonderful undercover stone-paved courtyard that extends around to landscaped gardens and a deck. There’s a fourth, more contained living space near the entry too, which features hutch access to the tiled and stainless-steel equipped kitchen. Nearby, a secluded and spacious office with built-in shelving provides a quiet space to work. Sleeping quarters extend south-east. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms here are all evenly spaced. Two of these have built-in wardrobes. The fourth and largest bedroom makes the most of the downward slope of the block with floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides for views of the front garden. ● JULIAN HEALEY

TOORAK \ 70 CLENDON RO ROAD OAD Gracious and glorious, this stately double-storey house is possibly one of the most intact Victorian residences in Melbourne. The Hawthorn brick facade with return balcony and verandah trimmed with wrought-iron lacework makes a grand impression outside, while inside room proportions are astounding. Original features are impossible to list here but include extensive leadlight, deep cornicing, timber panelling, ornate plasterwork, marble fireplaces and tessellated tiling. Living areas are downstairs and bedrooms above. And what living areas. Everything is on a grand scale; ceilings are above four metres, there’s extensive fitted shelving, windows are trimmed by sumptuous curtains and huge chandeliers add to the ambience. To relax, take your pick between a drawing room or sitting room, study or work from home in the library and entertain in the luxury dining room. Family time would probably best be spent in the family/meals area and kitchen at the rear. Upstairs to the sleeping quarters; the main has a fitted dressing room and an en suite so spacious it is larger than some flats. This elegant chamber opens to the wrap balcony and includes one of the house’s six sumptuous fireplaces. The four other bedrooms are comfortably doubles and the bedroom at the front is so large sleepovers for 20 would not be out of the question. ● JAN FISHER

NOVEMBER 9, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 49


SOUTH YARRA \ 10 LUXT LUXTON ROAD The exterior of this c1880 quintessentially Melbourne house is deceiving. A traditional Victorian terrace on a corner block, it gives nothing away of its spacious interior. The entrance is nothing short of grand, with almost four-metre ceilings and period featured cornices. An open-plan formal living and dining room has two fireplaces with marble surrounds, built-in shelving, chandeliers and vast windows overlooking the pretty established front garden. Further down the hallway is the most surprising find. The under-stair storage has a trapdoor leading to a 10-metre wine cellar. At the back of the house is an extension with study, bathroom and laundry, and open-plan kitchen, living and dining area where glass doors lead to a paved courtyard. Up the first flight of stairs is a second bathroom and a large bedroom which could double as a living room, while the top floor has two more bedrooms. One has built-in wardrobes and the main bedroom has floor-to-ceiling double built-in wardrobes and access to the balcony. There are two car spaces in the carport accessed by a roller door off a laneway at the side of the house; not that you’ll need them when you can run across the road (literally) to the Hawksburn train station or walk less than a kilometre to Hawksburn shops. ● KIRSTIE BEDFORD

If your satellite navigation system doesn’t tell you you’re in Hawthorn, Livingstone will. The elevated, tuckpointed mansion has been a Riversdale junction landmark since 1898 and positively heaves with history. A team of early Antarctic explorers planned their trip here and local lore says the property also housed the printing press for the

Democratic Labor Party in the 1950s. It even has a Dr Livingstone connection; the current co-owner is related to the African explorer. The single-storey house has a return verandah with a city view. Its interior is a showcase of late-Victorian opulence: a triple-arched hall, elaborate ceilings and fireplaces with towering, tiered mantelpieces evoke rolled-gold grandeur, with beautiful

spaces for executive entertaining. The house was extended in the 1990s and the kitchen and bathrooms were renovated. “It’s a gracious place, but it’s also cosy and well lived-in,” says the co-owner. The large living and dining rooms have bay windows and open fireplaces, while the carpeted dining room opens to the verandah. The bedrooms are doubles with fireplaces and

bedroom four is fitted as a library. The main bathroom has a shower and claw-foot tub. Chefs will enjoy the spacious kitchen, which has granite benchtops, a walk-in pantry and a Westinghouse 900-millimetre range. The meals area flows into the family lounge, which has french doors to the shady garden and its huge pergola. There’s a rear double carport. ● ALISON BARCLAY

MALVERN EAST \ 25 BRUNEL STREET Can architecture help teenagers like their parents? This elegant, extended 1920s house might demonstrate that it can. Put four bedrooms and a retreat upstairs, far from the olds in their ground-floor spa suite. Add a big, north-facing backyard and a secret lane to the Hedgeley Dene Gardens, and the scene is set for free-rangers to flex their independence muscles. Transport is easy – take the Burke Road tram or walk through Hedgeley Dene to Darling station. The two-storey house has original, adjoining living and dining rooms, a front study and a contemporary family area opening to the garden. The carpeted living room looks fresh in white with a leadlight door and mullioned sash windows flanking its open fireplace. Out the back, the nine-metre family area is a superb space for parties. It has polished hardwood flooring, a Jetmaster gas log fireplace and french doors to the covered, Edwardian-style deck. The granite kitchen has 900-millimetre stainless-steel oven and a garden view via the meals area’s box bay window. Come bedtime, parents can enjoy the peaceful main bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and white en suite with corner spa and glass shower. Four first-floor double bedrooms have wardrobes and share the carpeted retreat and a bathroom with shower. The property has a tandem carport and driveway parking. ● ALISON BARCLAY
