with tales of an Aussie wildlife enthusiast who’d become a huge star there. So popular was this man, my husband explained, he had to be helicoptered in and out of live appearances to avoid being mobbed. How amazing, I thought, that no one here had heard of him. And so we set up one of the first Australian interviews with Steve Irwin. Then of course there was Megan Gale, the Aussie girl who became one of the most famous and sought-after women in Italy, long before anyone back home knew who she was. Following in their footsteps comes Lebanese-Australian Jessica Kahawaty, hardly a household name here yet a star in the Middle East, where she’s known as the Arab world’s answer to Heidi Klum. Check out our interview with the super-smart and gorgeous Jessica inside – just remember you heard about her here first. ●

WHO’S THAT GIRL? SHE’S SMART, GORGEOUS & TOUTED AS THE ARAB WORLD’S ANSWER TO HEIDI KLUM. SARAH HARRIS MEETS AUSTRALIA’S JESSICA KAHAWATY

I

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

f there was one beauty who interrupted the preening of familiar feathers in the Birdcage at this year’s Melbourne Cup, it was Jessica Kahawaty. Heads turned as the model and television host made her first appearance in the arena, clad in a forest-green tailored sheath by designer Christopher Esber. With her sage-grey eyes, olive skin and raven hair, Jessica possesses a cross-cultural appeal that has led to fame in the Middle East, where she’s now on track to super stardom as the Arab world’s answer to Heidi Klum. But even before she landed the plum prime-time role as host of Project Runway Middle East, the Lebanese Australian was touted as Dubai’s It Girl. The former Miss World Australia (2012) has graced the cover of Elle and  Elle Elle and  Marie Claire, and has represented such prestigious brands as Rolls-Royce, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Dior and Fendi, yet she remains largely unknown in her home country. Like Megan Gale, who first found fame in Italy, Jessica has become an ambassador abroad since moving to the United Arab Emirates in 2012. “I love Megan, I think she is one of the most beautiful girls,” Jessica says of the inevitable comparison. “Nothing makes me prouder than seeing a great representation of the Aussie name.” Although she was born and raised in Sydney’s Hills District, Jessica very nearly represented Lebanon at the Miss World pageant. The daughter of Armenian Lebanese jeweller John Kahawaty, Jessica was first crowned Miss Lebanon Australia in 2007 and became the first Lebanese Australian to win Miss Lebanon Emigrant in 2008. She was favourite to win Miss World Lebanon 2010, but in a shock outcome – and despite having the highest scores from nine judges – she finished third runner-up. She remains diplomatic about the circumstances. She is, after all, trained in law at the University of Technology Sydney. To add to her accomplishments, she also speaks French, Arabic and Japanese and plays the piano. All this contributed to her success when she decided to pursue the Miss World title on home soil in 2012. “I think I was probably luckier that I won Miss World Australia because I was

born in Australia, I was raised here and I am actually representing all Aussies, which encompasses all nationalities. I just feel Aussie, which is that whole multicultural feeling and pride.” Jessica was discovered at 14 after debuting in a Sydney fashion show with her Lebanese-born mother, Rita. But like many teenagers, she had issues. “I was very geeky between 14 and 17. I had massive glasses and at one stage I took to wearing yellow tinted ones like Bono. I am actually quite blind. I have minus 6 (classed as high-degree myopia) in each eye. I had crazy curly hair and insanely skinny legs.” She never imaged that by 18 she would be booked for big overseas campaigns, working for Maybelline in India and Pepsi Next in Japan. Jessica last spent significant time in Melbourne training for the 2012 Miss World title, held in China, where she was ultimately second runner-up. But the most memorable aspect of the Miss World lead-up was working to re-open a school in a remote Northern Territory Indigenous community. “Seeing that the kids had no access to education really upset me. Just because people are living on traditional lands in a traditional way does not mean they should be deprived of life’s basic rights and amenities,” the 28-year-old says. Raising awareness of human rights is one of Jessica’s key goals. “I love everything to do with the human side of the law. I have never practised because I haven’t taken my bar exam, but I feel like I am using my understanding through charity work, fund-raising and bringing awareness to certain issues.” To introduce Project Runway contestants to social responsibility, they were asked to design a jacket for Syrian refugees. Thousands of jackets were delivered to the camps. “It brought a lot of light and exposure to the issue,” Jessica says. “We went to the camps and so many refugees spoke of Australia as one of the countries they would love to go to. It made me feel so helpless. You just want everyone to have a house, be healthy, have food. What breaks me most is the children. They are born into something they have absolutely no choice or hand in.” ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

Jess’ beauty tips with a difference Mix a big spoon of Manuka honey in warm water 20 minutes before breakfast. This gives you a burst of energy and it’s a great detoxifier. Wash your face with charcoal soap. It really draws out impurities without drying your skin. I love exfoliating my lips with cinnamon, honey and sugar. Put that on a soft toothbrush (not the one you clean your teeth with) and brush your lips. Then I use Lucas’s Papaw Ointment. I don’t wear lipstick most of the time. I like to use jojoba oil for my body because it so closely resembles the natural oils of our skin. A blend of almond oil, coconut oil and tea helps give my hair extra shine. ● NOVEMBER 16, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9


sarah marinos MEETS ACTOR-TURNED-STORYTELLER WILLIAM MCINNES

W

eeks after the Western Bulldogs clinched an adrenalin-packed grand final, there’s still a buzz around the Whitten Oval. Fans are still wearing their red, white and blue scarves and, inside the cafe overlooking the ground, groups of fans are reliving the moment when their beloved Doggies finally grasped victory. Dyed-in-the-wool Bulldogs fan William McInnes is still revelling in the event he never thought he’d see. He wrote an emotional newspaper article after the grand final and described being swept up in “a wonderful event that seems a little incredulous”. He portrayed his footy team as “perennial heartbreakers” with fans loyal through thick and thin. “For anybody who’s been told they don’t belong, or weren’t good enough, or were there just to make up the numbers, the Doggies story is there for you,” he wrote. Today, as we stand before the EJ Whitten statue, a woman stops the actor turned writer and congratulates him on the article and on encapsulating the emotions of fans, young and old. She says it brought her to tears and the two share a moment that only Doggies supporters of old can truly understand. “I was at the MCG and it was a pure fairy tale. I’ve never seen so many people so happy,” he says, his voice still slightly emotional. “I think many people that day were remembering people who’d left their lives. It was something much more than sport. When football is like that it transcends the dollars and cents and becomes this wonderful piece of social fabric.” Writing about such pieces of Australia’s social fabric is something William does well – and something he enjoys. Most recently on TV screens in SBS’s four-part drama, Deep Water, he has had a lengthy acting career Water since graduating from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, making his name playing Constable Nick Schultz on Blue Heelers and Max Connors in SeaChange. Born in Redcliffe in Queensland, he studied acting in Perth before settling in Footscray 27 years ago. “I was going to do law but got into WAAPA and didn’t tell dad initially. Mum told me not to say anything because he’d go off the handle,” William recalls with a smile. He’s fighting a fierce cold and arrives for our interview slightly late after nodding off by accident. Pulling out his wallet to buy a coffee, he realises that in his haste he’d picked up his son’s wallet instead. “If there’s one thing worse than an actor’s wallet, it’s the son of an actor’s wallet,” he says with a laugh. “When dad found out I actually wasn’t going to Sydney to study theatre history but was off to Perth, I remember him saying, ‘No son of mine is going to be a pissed-upon actor’. He thought it was basically a bunch of dress-ups – which it is,” he continues. “But the good thing about my old man was after a couple of minutes he’d always be fine. “If there’s one thing I’d tell kids, it’s to trust your parents more. All they want to know is that you are content and know where you’re going and that you’ll let them know if you need a hand.” Since November 2011, William has been single-handedly raising his two children by film director Sarah Watt, who passed away at the age of 53 after a lengthy journey with

cancer. The couple met in 1989, settled in the house in Footscray where William still lives with Clem, 23, and 18-year-old Stella. The family contemplated moving several times but Footscray was always home. “We met when Sarah was going to a party with a girl I shared a house with. We had an argument about beer and that was the beginning,” he says. “There was something anarchic about her and she was driven and had a great work ethic but she could also be lazier than me. She was a top-shelf person and I look at the kids and see a lot of Sarah in them – including a lack of detail to housekeeping! Like their mother, they like a bit of mischief but they have a strong work ethic and they have her determination. “Sarah could be pretty fierce, which I think is a very attractive quality in a woman.”

S

ince Sarah’s loss, William’s focus has been his kids. He has taken on theatre and TV roles based on how close the jobs are to home, and his writing has allowed him the freedom to be around for Clem and Stella. Along the way, he has accumulated two Logies and a best actor AFI award for his role in the film Unfinished Sky Sky. “My kids are nice people,” he says. “They had to sort out a lot of stuff for themselves when their mum died and that was pretty tough because she was really loved by everyone in the family. We muddled along but never really get over that … I shake my head sometimes because in Australia we

think there is a set pattern of things and a permanency. We always think there is another Christmas and a family get-together to put up with. We always have to do this and that but it just ends one day. I think when mortality has been visited upon you at the age of my children, then it’s a huge thing they have dealt with. They are good people and I’m glad they are in the world.” He describes his latest book, Full Bore, as his ramblings on sport, pop culture and life. And the memories will resonate with anyone of a similar age. “It’s a story of lives told through objects and stuff. As the world becomes less certain, some people collect stuff because it reminds them of a time in their life – like breakfast cereal toys,” he says. William is on a roll now, recalling the childhood treasures he accumulated that spark an avalanche of remembered good times. From Little Golden Books to comics and toys, they all merit a place in his memories and musings. “I got a GI Joe doll as a kid – the creepiest, funniest thing. He had a kung fu grip so hung on to things and there was a knob at the back of his head that made his eyes move. My aunty won it at a bowling-club raffle and gave it to me for Christmas during my last year of primary school. “We teased my dad with it because it had a beard and dad hated beards. He called GI Joe that ‘bearded little voodoo bastard’. I sometimes wonder if I have given my kids the memories my parents gave me. They were great people with generous spirits and they had a lot of fun,” he says. “But my father was a different man. He fought a world war, lived through a Depression, migrated here from Ireland and made a new life. He worked hard all his life. I’ve just buggered around in costumes! Dad died when I was 28 but mum watched my career and was always surprised that it worked out. She couldn’t quite believe it. I remember giving her my third book and she said, ‘Another tome of crap?’,” he says and bursts out laughing. “But I know they were proud of us all. Dad would yell a lot and then he’d race in, give you a bear hug, tell you he loved you and go off screaming at someone else. I don’t know how I’ve gone with my kids. Sometimes we’re a bit like The Three Stooges – there’s noise and chaos and we’re such spuds as well. We love watching bad movies.”


Down-time hanging out on the couch is big in the McInnes household. Recently they binged on a sci-fi movie featuring a baddie who comes out of a tomb. William mimics the creature’s delighted voice and catchcry of “weapons!” and says it has become the go-to word in their home. When his daughter found a chocolate stash in the fridge, he remembers her rubbing her hands in delight and crying out “weapons!”. When their local fish and chip shop began serving banana fritters, the word came into play again. “I like that idea of just being together and creating your own language. I was driving with Stella not long ago and I was upset – things were making me sad – and Stella began playing music and talking to me about it. She played songs her mother and I liked and some Dean Martin that I love and some David Bowie and Debussy. And we talked about it,” he says, a hint of tears welling in his eyes. “When she got out of the car I thought what an incredibly kind thing she’d just done knowing how I felt … although she also bought me a picture of Gene Hackman in The French Connection. He’s hunched over the steering wheel of a car looking angry and she says it reminds her of me driving her to school!”

W

“My father fought a world war. He worked hard all his life. I’ve just buggered around in costumes!”

hile he loves the colour and movement of life in Footscray, he also relishes time at his second home in Mornington because it takes him back to his childhood near the beach. “I’ll probably end up down there,” he muses. “My daughter is finishing year 12 and will probably take a gap year. Clem has finished an arts degree and is a young middle-class boofhead off to America for an adventure! He’s going to see Monument Valley where John Ford shot his westerns and he wants to drink in a bar that Ernest Hemingway drank in when he was in Cuba. “I’ve reminded Clem that Ernest Hemingway drank in a lot of bars; he probably drank in bars in Footscray for all we know!” While he describes himself as “a bit of a slob” and a “boofhead”, William recognises his good fortune in having regular acting offers. So what makes him take a job – apart from family-friendly hours? “Good people, a good script and good catering most importantly,” he quips. There will be more writing – he’s working on a new novel and there are plans to turn his book Laughing Clowns into a telemovie. And some radio work, too. His mind wanders to some of the more bizarre jobs he’s taken. In the late 1980s he was a life model and there was a stint as Santa in a Sydney department store. He’d just met Sarah then and remembers chasing her around the store in costume. “I got the job after a guy whose wife died got on the turps, fell asleep under the golf clubs and peed himself,” he says. “Sarah came into the store and told security I was stalking her and they frog-marched me out the door. I hung on to the job for a bit longer and then left in early December to do A Country Practice, but somewhere there is a family album with me as Father Christmas …” ● smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au NOVEMBER 16, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 11

WATCH THIS FACE ROB COLLINS \ ACTOR & SINGER

What’s the buzz? Rob’s performance as Mufasa in the musical The Lion King melded “compassion and authority”, said The Age, while The Au Review noted his “impressive vocal talents and smooth movements”. DeciderTV’s Steve Molk praised his “great” work as hard-edged spiritual warrior Waruu in the ABC’s dreamtime sci-fi drama Cleverman. In the beginning … “The boy I remember was very introverted and shied from the crowd,” says Rob. He played AFL but was “a bit rubbish”. After completing a business degree, he worked for government. Songwriting was a hobby but, after joining the Australasian Performing Right Association, he was inspired by singer-songwriters Peter Garrett, Don Walker and Josh Pyke to pursue his passion. At 30, he was accepted into the National Institute of Dramatic Art. “It was like being shot out of a cannon.” The big break … Discovering theatre was his “great passion”, then auditioning for The Lion King opened a new world

for Rob. “I approached Mufasa as a father, which I am three times over,” says the dad of Jordan, 19, Blake, 16, and Rachael, four. But his latest role, playing The Wrong Girl’s charismatic television chef Jack Winters opposite Jessica Marais, has elevated him to a new strata of celebrity. “I’m new to network television and being a lead male; it’s daunting.” Where to now? Season two of Cleverman is now in production with Rob reprising his role as Waruu West. “It’s interesting terrain, because I don’t generally gravitate to the darker aspects of characters.” The best part about success? “Doing fantastic projects with fantastic people in a fickle industry. I’ve had regular, steady work.” If I could do it all again … “In certain situations, I could have been more confident. But I wouldn’t do it differently. I’m at an ideal point, doing fantastic shows, with a family that love and support me. By sheer fluke, I’m striking that balance.” ● STEVE DOW editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au » The final episode of The Wrong Girl screens on November 16 at 8.30pm on Channel Ten. T

A self-described “typical small-town boy”, whose Tiwi family hails from Bathurst Island, Rob Collins was daunted when he left his Darwin home to study acting at the age 30. Seven years later he’s making a name as the male lead in The Wrong Girl.

The Wrong Girl will return to Channel Ten in 2017 for a second series. The cast has not been formally announced but it’s likely Rob will return with the series.

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

Pinot gris is a funny grape in that A respect. It’s a colour mutation of pinot noir and its grapes can be any

Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Pinot Gris 2015 (Grampians) $20; 13.5%

colour from white to dark purple – and sometimes both in a single, speckled bunch. The key to the colour of gris and grigio lies in the colour of a grape’s flesh and juice, which is white. Red wines get their colour from grape skins, which involves leaving the berries to ferment with their skins. For white wine, grapes are pressed soon after they’re picked to stop colour affecting the juice. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Pinot gris was planted at Mount Langi Ghiran 22 years ago, which would make these some of Australia’s oldest plantings. Its subtlety is striking – there’s a lot going on here but every element is playing the same harmonious tune. Floral pear, quince and spice aromas and flavours flow seamlessly with texture, balance and complexity. ● Enjoy with \ Thai fish cakes

Pizzini Pinot Grigio 2016 (King Valley) $21; 12.1%

Holly’s Garden Pinot Gris 2014 (Whitlands) $28; 12.5%

Pinot grigio can sometimes be a little flavourless, but Pizzini gets the balance between flavour and crisp refreshment spot-on. Complex, layered aromas of pear, quince and white flowers are subtle and restrained. In the mouth this is all energy and refreshment, with chalky lime-flavoured grip to refreshing acid and fleshy pear flavours. ●

Balance is the hallmark of Holly’s Garden pinot gris and it’s consistently one of Australia’s best renditions. It’s grown high above the King Valley in Whitlands – about 750 metres above sea level. Floral and pretty, fresh-cut pears, white stonefruit and seductive smoky notes set an alluring tone, with a satin-like texture that leads into citrus and mineral acid. It’s delicious. ●

(KYLIE THOMSON)

Consider yourself lucky if the Kilburn is your local. ● ISABELLE LANE

t’s a long bow to draw, but I’d like to imagine that the single plume of smoke that billowed from each of the Great Wall of China’s towers upon invasion from outsiders, could not be too far from the ones that are going to metaphorically shoot up once I tell you about the dim sum you could be having in Doncaster. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been privy to the fact that the best yum cha is always in the ’burbs, but I never quite knew where. It’s here at kitschy Plume, with its daytime-only treats of slippery rice noodle-encased Chinese doughnut and gai lan, and the sort of prawns you always hope for in your dumplings but never quite get when you’re closer to the CBD. Flavours are defined yet dainty, knifework finessed and finicky, every combination cultivated with Cantonese care. Dishes that you’d never see unless ordering “off menu” are wheeled around willy nilly and I find myself trying everything coming my way with aplomb (and plum sauce). I’m particularly enamoured of their sesame globes – deep-fried pastry that puffs up, coated in roasted sesame seeds, delivering a nutty, crunchy yet chewy combo that is out of this world. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

NEAT DINING ROOM

A QUIET DINNER \\ Many quiet dinners I have had at the HEALESVILLE HOTEL, in fine weather sitting out in the courtyard with the aromas of the rotisserie. The menu changes frequently and it’s always hard to choose. Combined with a huge selection of Yarra Valley wines, it is perfect.  

COOKING \ Wombok is making its presence known in my kitchen at the moment, providing all of my cabbagey needs without the fiddly fibrousness of other varieties. Toss with Kewpie, spring onion and carrot for an easy slaw, or slice finely and drop into broth for a nearly noodle situation. ●

WATCHING CHING \\ Jacques Reymond cooking at The Park House in Abbotsford is a hoot. I loved his cheesy comte gougeres (which I still contend to be cheese puffs by another name) and scored y’all the recipe (and the video) that you can find online. ●

I’m always on a need to know basis. Get in touch: @aliceinframes #TWREat

OFF-MENU GOLD

M I LTO N LOV E S …

BRUNCH \ I love to eat brunch at HUTCH & CO in Lilydale. It is local and it has a good buzz and lots of competition for a table, in addition to great coffee, food and service.

EATING \ Palmberries … well, I guess they’re technically strawberries, but they’re the size of my palm, come from the Peninsula and have such a lovely balance of sweet & sour! Pop one in each lunchbox instead of an apple, or soak in liqueur and stack into a glorious pile for your next dinner-party dessert. ●

READING \ The girls behind one of Melbourne’s hottest destinations for eaters of plants have published a book of plant-based cookery, Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (that happens to be vegan) (Hardie Grant, $48). Sexy and northside broody, it’s gotta make the Christmas list for the tattooed vegan in your life. ●

ABOUT TONY

A DATE \\ For a date I choose the restaurant at TARRAWARRA MUSEUM OF ART. The service is impeccably discreet, the food is a picture on the plate and I cannot go past the beautiful reserve chardonnay.

A FANCY DINNER \\ Although it takes a bit of planning, how could you go past a dinner at BRAE in Birregurra? All the senses are enlightened with amazing flavours and innovation.

TO SEE & BE SEEN \ NAKED IN THE SKY is my place to be seen, with just so many cool hipsters and beautiful people. There are also lots of beautiful small plates for grazing the night away, while you and your friends chat to anyone around.

A BIG GROUP \ ROYAL OY TIME INDIAN RESTAURANT OYAL in Main Street, Lilydale, is where I love to meet my friends, eat great Indian food and drink Singha beer. Tasty snacks from the tandoor and memorable curries are consistent with welcoming homely service.

“What makes me laugh is the well-observed, beautifully played-out routine where the comic takes you on a bit of a journey and fills in the characters along the way. That great skill of storytelling is very much a part of what I do. It comes from an ancient human desire to sit around and listen to stories.” Thankfully, Bill has no shortage of tittersome tales. His new show Larks In Transit looks back across his 20 years as a globetrotting comedian, a journey that began with his very first Australian show back in 1996. “It was really the first time my comedy had been tested outside of the UK. It was quite daunting in many ways. It prompted a lot more travel and meetings and even a marriage. It was actually quite a profound event for me.”

omedian Bill Bailey has an odd confession: he doesn’t like jokes. This might come as a surprise to anyone who has seen him as a regular panellist on ABC TV’s QI or as Dylan Moran’s sparring partner in cult comedy Black Books. But the stand-up comic is quick to explain he’s talking about a very specific kind of joke. “What I hate are those hackneyed routines where people say they’re going to tell you a joke,” Bill says. “They always seem to be the same format, they always seem to involve three blokes in a pub. Those traditional jokes are the sort of things I’ve always avoided.” For Bill, making people laugh is more about being a great storyteller than a simple gag merchant.

Ever since, Australia has been a regular stop on Bill’s global wanderings. Indeed, we’ve become the audience he relies upon when it comes to testing out new material. “Every time I come, the audience is very responsive,” Bill says. “I think there’s a similarity between a British and an Australian sense of humour. There’s a healthy scepticism about authority, a good dose of sticking it to the man, and a bit of self-deprecatory and absurdist humour.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM FILM Spun off from a fictional textbook read by young wizards at Hogwarts, this new fantasy adventure hopes to reboot the world of Harry Potter for seven films or so. Our hero is Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magical cross between Indiana Jones and David Attenborough who scours the world for fantastical creatures. He winds up in jazz-age New York with a bottomless suitcase of critters, triggering a flare-up between the local wizards and their Muggle counterparts. ■ Opens November 17, rated CTC, 133 minutes, fantasticbeasts.com

MUSICAL

DUSTY Few icons evoke ’60s swinging London as powerfully as Dusty Springfield does. There’s the blonde beehive, the mini-skirts and a stash of soulful hits written by the legendary Burt Bacharach. She was more or less that decade’s Adele (they appear to share a hairstylist, at the very least), quickly becoming the world’s top-selling female artist. Devised by an Australian team, this musical of her mad and rather sad life features rising musical star Amy Lehpamer as Dusty. ■ Arts Centre Melbourne, until December 4. Cost: $42-$130. theproductioncompany.com.au

JACK CHARLES VS THE CROWN Jack Charles has had a life more PLAY colourful than most fiction. His entertaining one-man autobiography (accompanied by a three-piece band) takes us from his childhood as part of the stolen generation, through his work in Koori theatre in the 1970s to his rightful place as an acting legend. ■ Fairfax Studio, November 15-20, $45-$55, artscentremelbourne.com.au

SIMONE MOSSOP \ The Community \ Hawthorn East ● The Cause \ ReadyStepGrow

SHE’S A LOCAL HERO BECAUSE …

Simone Mossop founded ReadyStepGrow, a charity that helps premature babies to overcome learning, social and emotional difficulties.

22 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 16, 2016

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

I

n her 20 years as a neonatal intensive-care nurse, Simone Mossop has nursed many premature babies to health, eventually sending them home with their parents. “I was absolutely sure that that was the end of the journey – that those children went home and went on to have their beautiful, normal childhoods with their families,” Simone says. When she started her second career as a primary school teacher 15 years ago, however, she realised preterm babies often grew to have learning, emotional and behavioural problems. “When they hit primary school it was still coming up to bite them,” Simone says. “I saw these little children struggle, and their families struggle.” Simone started her charity ReadyStepGrow in 2013 to give preterm babies the best start and to educate and support their parents. The program includes consultations with a speech pathologist, occupational therapist and paediatric dietician and aims to give premature babies the follow-up care they need – but don’t often get – once they’re discharged from hospital.

W A N T T O H E L P O U T ? readystepgrow.org.au

“Children born at less than 30 weeks or less than 1000 grams in Victoria get automatically followed-up, but 85 per cent of preterm children are born at over 32 weeks,” Simone says. She says research largely ignored premature babies born between 32 and 37 weeks, because they seemed to be doing better than those born earlier. “Then the research started to uncover that those babies actually did have issues in the same way their very preterm counterparts did,” Simone says. “So that’s 85 per cent of these children we know have difficulties that we’re not following up in a routine way.” Simone is on her way to changing this. ReadyStepGrow has helped about 80 families prepare their children for school and beyond, and Simone would like to see the program rolled out across Australia. “We would love to have this program available to all preterm children,” she says. “We know that they have difficulties and so it’s really important that we support the families and these children to be the best they can be.” ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

GIVE IT A GO JEMIM M AH CLEGG NAILS THE SMOOTH LOOK

The reality I sit in a comfy chair while my nails are buffed and filed. My cuticles need some serious attention, so they are pushed back and meticulously trimmed. Next it’s time for the shellac polish. I’ve chosen a neutral pink, which will be quite versatile, because the shellac lasts for at least a fortnight. The team at Organique also do nail embellishments, so I have a small diamante placed on each of my ring fingers – for a bit of subtle bling. After my shellac polish has cured under the UV light, it’s time for an exfoliating lotion and paraffin wax treatment, which is said to make the skin smoother and even help with circulation. My hands are massaged as they’re exfoliated and moisturised – they’re starting to feel smoother already. I then put each hand into a plastic bag filled with paraffin wax, and it’s squished around to completely engulf my hands.

24 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 16, 2016

The pay-off As I let the wax do its thing, I sit back in one of the massage chairs, which works out knots in my back and neck. The wax is removed with a warm towel and my hands look and feel about 10 years younger. They smell pretty amazing too.

We try A DELUXE M ANICURE

The pain factor Cuticle trimming can be uncomfortable, but the Organique team do it with painless precision. Who should try it? Anyone who’s after youthful-looking hands and a beautiful manicure. The bill? It’s $55 for the deluxe manicure and shellac polish, and $5 each for the diamantes. The experience takes about 90 minutes.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

Definitely – gotta keep those hands looking young. ● (ISTOCK)

Who’s behind the counter? Jonathan Alphandery is Laduree’s director of macarons – the man who ensures the tradition of the patisserie, which was founded in 1862, stays alive. “To me it’s the texture, the contrast of crisp and soft – nobody even compares,” he says. “Laduree is of the moment and the beautiful Chadstone store will surely showcase this.” The Chadstone store sells macarons to go, but also boasts a marble bar and a 21-seat tea room, where lovers of the Parisian treat can pull up a chair and enjoy some of the many flavours.

Who’s buying? Francophiles and those with a sweet tooth are sure to pop in and get a taste of Paris at Chadstone. “Everyone loves a macaron,” Jonathan says. “They make a delicious gift. Forget the bottle of wine or the bouquet of flowers to bring to a dinner party, it’s all about macarons!” ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

French macaron emporium Laduree has finally opened a Melbourne store – in the new section of Chadstone shopping centre. The store sits in an impressive dome under the glass roof, allowing the macarons to be perfectly showcased.

What’s in store? “You can definitely buy the salted caramel macaron, which is our bestseller,” Jonathan says. Some of the other flavours include lemon, chocolate, raspberry, pistachio, and liquorice, to name a few – and you can also buy a large range of Laduree items, from chocolate to jam, candles and tea.

Our pick Salted caramel may be the bestseller, but we can’t go past the very Parisian rose petal flavour. They’re $3.90 takeaway or $4.50 dine-in. The sweetest treats: The Laduree macaron shop at Chadstone. (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

he new E-class is, at first, all about electronics. It T has the best surround-view camera display I’ve ever used, two touch pads on the steering wheel and

his is more a cocoon than a car. One floats along, T stately as a galleon, gloriously indifferent to all the nasties outside. The feeling is especially strong

a third over the console selector wheel, five driving programs and great audio. Good for showroom demonstrations but you’ll buy the car for the way it drives which is, in two words, class-leading. It rides beautifully and it’s only over very rough patches that you’ll begin to feel the sharp reactions of a car that is very well tied down. And you’ll only discover how well when you push it into a corner and feel it tuck in and go, smooth and efficient. The diesel has good power off the mark and fuel economy is brilliant. The auto stop/start is generally seamless and the nine-speed auto is a ripper, good at anticipating and not calibrated to be hell-bent on fuel economy. There’s a tonne of room front and rear and a very good boot with push-button closing. The current BMW 520d is eight grand cheaper and Audi A6s start at $90k. If you can find the extra money buy the E-class – it’s worth every cent of it. ●

while using cruise control, in which the car keeps a respectful distance from anything ahead and steers itself by reading the white lines each side, occasionally reminding you that you really should be doing a bit of the work yourself. The electronics, initially a bit intimidating, turn out to be easy and intuitive once you get their drift – a definite improvement on the last E-Class. I love the huge LCD screens stretching across the dash, giving the most generous navigation display in the business. You can dial up three different instrument-cluster displays: one typical of Mercedes, a sporty one and a third that makes the tachometer the star. The 220d is surprisingly willing for a diesel and the auto is seamless; it’s a beautiful drive. And the cabin is nicely appointed and comfortable, although I’m less enthused about the fake wood along the dash and door sills. ●

PERSONAL SPACE AT H O M E W I T H V I K A B U L L

This was given to me by my parents when I was about 11. I learnt on it and then my daughter Mafi [Mafi’iolani] learnt on it. A few famous people have played it, but for me the most special thing was watching my daughter learn to read music and play.

HULA GIRL I found her in a junk shop in St Kilda about 20 years ago. The lady running the shop said she wasn’t for sale because she really liked her and wanted to keep her. I said, ‘Oh pleeease’ and for some reason she changed her mind.

ANGEL (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

A

curtain of lush, almost tropical garden screens Vika Bull’s Fitzroy North home from the busy street, transforming a typical inner-city cottage into an oasis. It wasn’t always thus. “When we bought it in 1999 it was a wreck, it was like this big party house and it smelled so bad. I walked in and said, ‘Nah’, and my husband [drummer John Watson] said, ‘Believe me, I can do something with this’, so I said, ‘OK’,” recalls the powerhouse songstress from Rockwiz, whose two stage shows celebrating Etta James and Marvin Gaye are returning to Melbourne by popular demand. After adding an extra floor at the rear of the house, John reclaimed the large space in the front roof which is accessed through a false cupboard, like a musical Narnia. It’s where Vika rehearses and learns all her songs. It is a house filled with warm energy, hung with original artworks by the couple’s many creative friends and is a hub for extended family. “It is filled with things that have meaning to us, that we love and make us feel comfortable and happy.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

Mafi wanted a dog so we went along to the Lost Dogs Home. There was this little Pomeranian going yap, yap, yap and Mafi went for it first. I just couldn’t put up with that barking and I saw Angel sitting there and said, ‘What about this one?’ She is nearly 15 now and she’s just a terrific dog.

Join Vika storytelling through song in two shows At At Last – The Etta James Story Story on November 23 and December 3, and Let’s Get It On – The Life & Music of Marvin Gaye Gaye on November 24 at the Athenaeum Theatre. Tickets: ticketek.com.au

SHELLS I just love shells, maybe it is being part islander. I found this big shell lampshade hiding in the back of a junk shop in Northcote. When my cousin saw it she laughed and laughed. Apparently my aunty has one exactly the same hanging at home in Tonga. T

CARVINGS

I sang on my friend David Bowers’ (aka Eugene Hamilton) new record. We did a barter. He said, ‘You sing on the record and I will do you a painting’, so he painted that bull for me. I really love it. I like the way we can use each other’s talents.

These were handed down from my grandfather to my mother and then to me. My favourite one is the monkey climbing the coconut tree. It is things like this, with history and meaning, that I treasure.

C R Y S TA L C A B I N E T

BOWL

This is my mum’s. Every time she comes to town she takes everything out, polishes and puts it all back again. There are pieces in there for me, for (sister) Linda and the grandchildren. It is a big responsibility looking after it. We can’t play football in the loungeroom.

I gave (artist) Mark Schaller tickets to the Etta show (At Last – The Etta James Story in 2013) and he turned up the very next day with this beautiful peacock bowl. He really enjoyed the show so he just gave me that. It was such a beautiful gesture. NOVEMBER 16, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 29

DESIGN HOT HOME TRENDS

DO WE NEED?

We ask Rebecca Jansma for her views on the following:

(ISTOCK)

ebecca Jansma of interior design studio Space Grace & Style has a firm mantra she repeats with all new clients. “I operate by the words of Coco Chanel, who always said, ‘Before you leave the house, stand in front of the mirror and take one thing off’. The same thing applies to your interior.” An overly busy interior has a negative effect on our well-being, Rebecca says: “It never fails to impress me how just reducing clutter can improve not only the sense of space in a room, but also the elegance of the space and the calming effect that brings people.” One of the challenges of her job is winding things back with clients who think more is more. Beyond overdesign and overcapitalising, it’s also a poor use of space. “We’re getting to the stage now where the building is occupying a larger percentage of the block and it’s not practical space,” she says. “There’s a point in design where we have to talk about functionality versus aesthetics.” On a larger scale, trends such as an en suite in every bedroom and sacrificing the garden in favour of ever-bigger outdoor dining areas is another worry. “Not that I’m against an outdoor room, I love it. But what we’re doing is creating an extension of the living room with a pool but at the expense of a lawn. I love my vegie patch, but that’s just me.” In her quest to get clients to embrace a simpler space, Rebecca is quite happy to strip out unnecessary stuff that would inflate her bill. “My aesthetic just won’t let me do that gratuitous stuff. I think the excess that we’re talking about is often the unfortunate symptom of affluence,” she says. ● STEPHEN A. RUSSELL

▲ BUTLER’S PANTRIES

OUTDOOR KITCHENS

▲ DOUBLE VANITIES

CHILDREN’S EN SUITES

“Fully kitted-out butler’s pantries are all very well and good if you have the butler to stick in there, but how many of us have that? I get that you don’t want a whole lot of mess when you’re entertaining but the reality is, that’s life.”

“I think the way we live with our barbecues and big outdoor tables is fabulous, but not at the expense of everything else. It’s not a big grassy yard any more, where kids can roll around and get all that valuable exposure to the microbes that they need.”

Family should be the heart of any home. “Kids having their own en suite and TVs in their rooms means you never see the poor little buggers. That’s not what kids want.”

VERDICT \ NO

VERDICT \ YES, BUT KEEP THE LAWN

“The problem is, people bang them in there and they don’t have enough space, so you have these eensy little basins and you’re banging into each other while he’s shaving and you’re putting on your make-up. Reality is, nobody does it at the same time anyway, so you’d be better off getting one bigger [vanity].”

VERDICT \ NO

VERDICT \ NO

THE ONE VALUE ADD …

“There’s not a lot of evidence that all these indoor extras add value to a home, but a well-designed outdoor area with a built-in barbecue and a swimming pool definitely does,” says Barry Plant sales director Tim Palioudis. “More and more people are looking at outside areas because they love entertaining.”

properties and now want to split their time between a city base and a country or beach property. They travel regularly and they want a larger residence because they often have family and friends to stay. “We’re also fielding inquiries from younger professional couples who work in the city and have one or two children.” John says there is flexibility for buyers to alter layouts to suit their requirements. The apartments each have a main open-plan living, dining and kitchen zone, second living area, a library/study area, one or two powder rooms and two or three bedrooms, bathrooms and terraces. Two apartments are double-storey with a bedroom on each level, a third is single-level and the fourth apartment has a main living level with a mezzanine-level main bedroom suite and a lower level for two bedrooms and bathrooms. Car access is via a rear lane and each apartment has two parking spaces in a fully automated basement garage. Apartments have integrated heating and cooling, basement storage lockers and intercoms. Completion is anticipated in the second quarter of 2018. ● LIZ McLACHLAN lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au

rare ensemble of four house-sized contemporary residences in East Melbourne exemplifies sophisticated inner-city living. Just 1.5 kilometres from the CBD and opposite the gardens of Darling Square, the new apartments will be the first in Australia to feature handcrafted Italian Valcucine SineTempore kitchens, with bespoke Italian Lema cabinetry and wardrobes in living areas, studies and bedrooms. Award-winning studio Canny Architecture has designed the foursome to incorporate the site’s heritage Victorian-era bluestone building and optimise living space, natural light and outlooks with interiors by Meme and terrace and courtyard gardens by Eckersley Garden Architecture. The four residences range from 197 to 284 square metres internally with outdoor spaces of up to 43 square metres. Prices range from $3.1 million to $5.15 million. Developer Cranecorp managing director John Crane says the residences are designed for discerning buyers looking for a high level of craftsmanship and who understand the project’s quality. “We are getting a lot of interest from people who have owned large

Every element of the apartments’ design, fittings and finishes has been tailored to create sophisticated and highly liveable residences. Elegant Italian custom furnishing systems by Lema will store everything in perfect order. Living area and study joinery is designed using Lema’s Selecta system by Piero Lissoni, and the wardrobes custom-designed in Lema’s Armadio al Centimetro system. Linen curtains complete living areas and bedrooms. Flooring is in premium engineered European oak through living areas with limestone in bathrooms and wool-blend carpet in bedrooms. ●

The handcrafted Valcucine SineTempore Italian kitchens marry artisan-made elm cabinetry with Valcucine’s leading-edge engineering in eco-sustainable base units made entirely from aluminium and glass. The kitchen islands use Valcucine’s Artemetica glass-clad system and have an elm breakfast bar, stone benchtop and splashback. Miele appliances include a 770-millimetre gas cooktop, black pyrolytic and moisture-plus oven, combination oven/microwave, integrated dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer. The Qasair rangehood is customised by Valcucine and tapware is by Fantini. ●

Like the kitchens, the bathrooms use leading international design to match elegant form with the best possible functionality. A floating white marble-clad vanity unit is topped by one or two Falper Ciotola round bowl bench-mounted basins. Large limestone tiles flow over the walls and line the walk-in shower which has a clear glass screen and Fantini double shower mixer with a rainwater shower rose and rail hand shower. Some bathrooms include a free-standing composite marble Apaiser bath. There’s a marble feature wall, large vanity mirror and in-wall toilet cisterns. ●

here are few streets as synonymous with Melbourne as Collins Street and fewer still with its history, wealth and unique architecture. Collins Street, named after Lieutenant Governor David Collins – a marine officer who sailed with the First Fleet to Australia – has been the financial beating heart since it was first built in the 1830s. Collins Street’s Victorian-era buildings have housed high fashion boutiques, financial institutions, cafes, restaurants and members of the medical profession

over the past (almost) two centuries. In more recent times, residential development has melded with this traditional, commercial side. Collins Arch is one such development breathing new life into Collins Street. A two-tower building with 34 levels and an eight-level connecting skybridge, Collins Arch will include a luxury hotel, apartments, offices and retail space in the heart of Melbourne’s city and will become a new notation in the history of Melbourne’s CBD. ●

on with their lives and it has left Clark and Leanne assessing whether they should stay in their current, spacious family home on one of Hawthorn’s well-known streets, lined with elm trees. Or, should they move to a smaller place, that still offers them room to move and become, what has become known in real-estate vernacular as “downsizers”? “It’s fair to say that Leanne has been keener to downsize than I have,” Clark says. Clark says he was a little apprehensive about the idea at first, not wanting to move to a type of New York style warehouse apartment that would be much smaller than

Next stage: Leanne and Clark Morgan in the garden of their home. The couple are considering an apartment at Luminary, above, close to where they live. (STEPHEN McKENZIE)

he and Leanne wanted. “I think my fears of moving have been around losing amenity, losing access to the things we enjoy about being in this area and so we wanted to stay in the area. “When you say downsizing we don’t want it to be a shoebox, so we want it to be quite large but still with functionality around it,” he says. Clark and Leanne are now considering buying into Luminary – one of Hawthorn’s newest developments in Church Street, not too far from where they currently live. It has 22 generous-sized, two- and three-bedroom apartments, fitted with imported marble in the kitchens and bathrooms, De Dietrich appliances and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout. So, the couple visited Lechte Corporation’s (the developer of Luminary) other apartment developments in Elsternwick and St Kilda to see whether it was somewhere they could live. “We were really impressed when we visited. The finishes were really elegant and the layout was well thought out,” Clark says.

“The room sizes are very good – overall it has really big spaces,” Leanne adds. “It has lots of storage and that’s important for us because we’ve got a lot of stuff and we need to be able to house things like golf clubs.” As well as the size, Luminary is, most importantly to the Morgans, still in the suburb they love. “We’ve been in this house 26 years but we moved here from [another house in] Hawthorn where we were for 10 years before that. So we love the area,” Clark says. “We love the beautiful big trees, parks, the bike path is within easy reach – it’s obviously good for transport. People are very friendly,” Leanne says. Leanne is a keen golfer and says she wants to stay in the area to be near her local golf course and so she can maintain a connection to the community she has come to know so well. Clark has recently changed roles to become the senior partner and vice chairman in a new firm Crestone Wealth Management. The business started about four months ago and has an office in Melbourne’s CBD – about five kilometres away. “I’m working most days. My intention is still to commute to the city. This is not a retirement for me at the moment,” Clark says. He is still working long hours and needs to be close to the city. But he realises that a change of home could be in the spring winds. “It’s a big step for me – the idea of having no land and not being on the ground. It’s something I’m still wrestling with,” he says. While he and Leanne are making their final decision, he has advice for others in his situation. “I think the only advice I would have is to consider all the options and work out what’s best for you. If you are considering moving into an apartment make sure it is large, has lots of storage and lots of space,” he says. ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

ringing the outdoors indoors creates an innate connection between zones. Our communion with nature contributes to spaces that encourage a sense of well-being and harmony. Haymes’ Consider palette is a “thoughtful”, organic colourway: soft pastels of blue, green and yellow paired with earthy neutrals to add lushness and productivity to workspaces. Colour forecaster Wendy Rennie lists five ways of working with it.

● Choose colours that are soft and fresh to encourage positive feeling;

softer tones add a sense of calm.

● Use objects that look and feel organic, such as fixtures and fittings in

a rustic finish, to add a sense of casualness to a space.

● Include natural materials such as stone, wood and marble to capture

the raw beauty of the outdoors through textures and patterns.

● Plants have an impact on the way a space feels; greenery as opposed

to flowers helps to create a beautiful, fresh feel without detracting from the room.

● Greenery helps to filter the air and give that indoor-outdoor vibe. ●

or an interior designer, there’s no better place to perfect one’s craft than in one’s own home. An experienced interior designer now working on a master’s in interior architecture, the owner exercised her skills with heart and soul on this Edwardian house. With the assistance of similarly passionate professionals in architecture, building and landscaping, she’s transformed a “sad and tired” residence on a large but underused block into an uplifting setting for family life. Before the work, the house was clearly in need of revitalising. An original wood stove was the only option for cooking. There was beauty in the house’s bones (good-sized rooms, high ceilings and solid-brick construction) and features, which included marble tiling and mantels – but it was going to take some coaxing to shine again. Eleven years later, the hard yards are forgotten as she ponders not just the results but all the wonderful family activity that’s occurred in the meantime. The front garden sets the scene for the renewed attraction. Where it previously sloped downwards to the facade, the nowlevel forecourt with pebbled paths, a central pond and ordered plant-life creates a welcoming sense of calm and contentment. Though calm might also be enjoyed in the backyard, it’s not that area’s calling card. Five years ago, the eldest daughter got married out there, to the delight of 200 guests. More recently, the baby celebrated a 21st with 100 or so friends sharing some poolside-barbecue fun. The facade is classic in tuckpointed red brick. Diamond-laid marble tiles grace the entrance verandah, the grand foyer and a second verandah reached through the main bedroom. This big bedroom comes with a wardrobe-lined dressing room and a roomy en suite. Second and third bedrooms benefit from open

fireplaces and walk-in wardrobes. The sitting room at the heart of the single-level floor plan has stained-glass windows and an open fireplace under a black marble mantel. It’s the owner’s favourite spot for privacy, peace and long phone calls. Two sets of steps in the central hall descend to a media room, the main bathroom, a laundry and the open-plan hub, where kitchen, dining and family areas swap period hallmarks for fuss-free modernity. A marble-topped island bench that doubles as a breakfast bar, stainless-steel preparation surfaces and an array of Miele appliances testify to the no-expense-spared nature of the kitchen. A huge butler’s pantry means dinner party debris is no problem. The wall-mounted fireplace in the family area makes a fine contrast with its formal-room counterpart, while framelessglass sliding doors connecting indoors and out allow for unobstructed vistas over of the backyard. Here, the paved and covered terrace sports a built-in barbecue and a fridge for refreshments. Decks bracket the tiled pool, while the third bathroom means there’s no need for wet bodies to walk through the house. Timber floors, sisal carpets, skylights, plantation shutters, feature walls, hydronic heating and surround sound figure among the inclusions. The driveway accommodates a few cars and the carport is so minimalist as to be almost invisible. The Grace Park Estate location underwrites lasting appeal. Kids can walk to sought-after schools, play at the park a few doors down or practice independence on Glenferrie Road trams. Parents might appreciate the proximity to coffee, bars and fashion. ● KAY KEIGHERY property@domain.com.au

With new bathrooms and a kitchen that’s less than three years old, the interior here is wholeheartedly modern. Wide Scandinavian-style floorboards extend throughout the ground floor – something that follows on well from the decking that leads to the front door. A stylish gas log fireplace warms the lounge and dining spaces up front. Beyond, the bright and spacious kitchen has stainless-steel appliances and is off the more-casual family and meals area at the rear. The family room opens to a slate-floored sun room that extends to a brick-paved courtyard. All of the bedrooms are on the carpeted first floor. Each bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and the main also has an en suite. Large skylights help fill bathrooms and one central bedroom with natural light, while two of the bedrooms get a taste of the outdoors thanks to private balconies. ● JULIAN HEALEY

One of two on the block, this three-level house backs on to Musca Street Reserve. Built only six years ago, it ticks boxes with a sleek interior, impressive foyer void, high ceilings and use of contrasting natural timbers. Inside the entry, the guest bedroom has an en suite and – like all bedrooms – its own walk-in wardrobe. Opposite and up a few steps, there’s a spacious study with built-in shelving. The formal living room is a cosy space that shares a gas fireplace with the family room at the rear. The meals area and modern Caesarstone kitchen command brilliant views of the reserve. The view gets even better upstairs in the main bedroom, which has a large en suite. Two more bedrooms are nearby. In the basement, polished concrete floors extend into a kitchen, living room, a theatre room, bathroom and storage spaces. ● JULIAN HEALEY

WE LOV E IT

This two-year-old period-style house in a leafy Glen Iris street doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to five-star family living. The pretty street frontage has lush gardens and a white picket fence. Once inside, there’s an immediate feeling of home thanks to the three large living spaces, wide polished floorboards and two open fireplaces. The open-plan dining, kitchen and living area has enough room to double as a small dance floor. There’s plenty of space to entertain indoors and out, with bifold doors leading to a covered outdoor entertainment area, the self-cleaning swimming pool (with water feature) and spa. The main bedroom is at the front of the house. It has his and hers walk-in wardrobes, an en suite and a view across the leafy front garden. Next door is a study with floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving and two desks. There’s access to understair storage in this room, too. There’s a well-planned laundry, separate powder room and a door to the attached double garage. The formal living room – with open fireplace – rounds out the downstairs. Upstairs comprises the third living area, an enormous rumpus room, and three more king-sized bedrooms. Each of these has a walk in wardrobe and one has an en suite.The main bathroom has a standalone bath and double vanity. Ferndale Park is 200 metres away, and the house is zoned for sought-after secondary schools and just 10 kilometres from the CBD. It’s a location sure to keep all ages happy. ● KIRSTIE BEDFORD

As one of Melbourne’s oldest suburbs, East Melbourne holds some historic gems, and Morpeth Villa must be rated one of the best. Located between the MCG and Fitzroy Gardens and a stroll to public transport, it was built in 1869, and as would be expected has been extensively renovated and rejuvenated, adding outwards and upwards. But there’s no sleek modern makeover here – everything is cosy, warm and inviting from the

moment you step over the threshold. That’s due to the sheer number of original features and sympathetic renovations. Amping up the ambience are Baltic pine floorboards, high ceilings, marble fireplaces and the extensive use of timber. Bedrooms are spread across two levels, with three downstairs and the main and one other on the ground floor. Leadlight doors open to the main en suite, which is decked out with a timber double vanity, marble chequerboard tiles and a large shower. The downstairs

bedrooms are all comfortable doubles and share another period-style bathroom. The open-plan family, meals and dining area is the natural hub of the house. The kitchen is nothing short of bewitching. A hulking black Aga will be the next owners’ treasure and the seafoam-green cabinetry, blond timber benches, exposed bluestone wall and copper rangehood crank up the charm. It all comes with ducted air-conditioning and heating, a four-car garage and extensive storage. ● JAN FISHER

GLEN IRIS \ 14 QUEENS PARADE With its pitched roof and lush-looking garden, this new house upholds the major Glen Iris traditions with contemporary dash and a quirk or two. Think you can tell a person’s character from their shoes? You’ll enjoy the view from the office’s floor-level windows. Look up – the atrium hall’s beaded pendant lamp is almost a wearable work of art. Built by Urbanedge Homes, the two-storey house has the home theatre, play areas and pool that children will love, and with five bedrooms one could certainly pack in a few offspring comfortably. Good zoning keeps community and privacy in balance. Three living areas include the theatre (with screen and projector) and a first-floor retreat with a three-desk study. The enormous family area opens north to the covered barbecue terrace that flows, in turn, to the glassfenced pool and deck. The white kitchen, gleaming in Calacatta Caesarstone with Smeg appliances, looks too good to use; do the dirty work in the butler’s pantry, which has access to the garden. Bedrooms are pleasantly separated for peace. The ground-floor main suite has a dressing room; walk through to the fully tiled en suite and its marble shower. On the first floor are four double bedrooms with walk-in or built-in wardrobes and a bathroom with shower and bath. There’s a powder room on each floor. The double garage has internal access. There are trams and shops on Toorak Road at one end of the street, with the green expanses of Burwood Reserve at the other. Burwood Station is also within easy walking reach. ● ALISON BARCLAY

A Serene Family Setting: Parks And Personality

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A serene north-facing backdrop that looks towards Hedgeley Dene Gardens distinguishes this inviting five bedroom plus study home close to Lloyd Street and St Mary´s schools, leading secondary schools and Central Park. Such a serene setting enhances elegant period rooms and light filled modern spaces served by a huge granite kitchen. A main suite downstairs is sensibly separate from four further bedrooms and two additional bathrooms that surround the generous upstairs lounge of this engaging family residence. Large carport plus parking.
