More to love ay what you will about our obsession with Sovertly sport. Yes, Aussie sports culture can be blokey and it’s fair to question why we

celebrate sports stars over and above those who excel in, say, science or the arts. But there’s no denying sport is the social glue that binds many communities together. Just as many a lifelong friendship has been forged on the suburban cricket pitch or in the clubrooms after a match, sport clubs have given countless immigrants to this country a vital entre to their new community, as well as a link to their heritage. So it was for Jim Postecoglou, who arrived from Greece in the early 1970s with his young family. At the South Melbourne Hellas soccer club Jim found both new friendships and the comfort of a familiar sporting code. Those good times also sparked a lifelong passion for the world game in his young son, Angelos. Four decades on, Ange has lost none of that passion as coach of our national soccer team. Read his story inside. ●

Sarah Marinos meets soccer supremo Ange Postecoglou

8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016

O

n October 23, 2013, he was given the country’s most high-profile football role when he became head coach of the Socceroos. Ange was quick to get stuck into the job, taking the team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the 2015 Asian Cup and now working through the process of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. “My own ambitions are beyond just qualifying – that’s not satisfying enough. I want us to go to a World Cup and make an impact,” he says. “I’ve stated my ambition is to win a World Cup. It’s a challenge but when you say that is your goal I think you are more likely to be appreciated for your efforts.” Ange is also determined to raise the profile of soccer in a country steeped in Australian football, cricket and rugby. “Without sounding arrogant, we are good at the game, we’ve matured as a nation, we are great at every other sport and there is no reason why we can’t be great at this one. We just need to state that ambition and not hide in the shadows,” he says. “To say you love this game in this country is not always the easiest thing to do and maybe that’s contributed to the steeliness in my character. You’re almost preparing yourself for a fight,” he says laughing. But he says a bottleneck in the game means Australia is losing the potential talent fostered at grassroots clubs across the country. “We’re giving kids the opportunity

you see progress in certain areas and understand you’ve put the pillars in place to get there and that gives you self-belief. The players and staff know I really believe in the way I coach and lead teams. They understand I am not going to walk away and that gives them the courage to go down that road with me.” The strategic thinking that is an essential part of the game has fascinated Ange since he was a young kid waiting outside the local newsagency for the latest delivery of British soccer magazines such as Shoot. He’d spend months poring over the pages and he still has those yellowing magazines at home. From the start, he has been an unflinching coach ready to speak his mind. He describes himself as someone who likes to shake things up, rather than coach with an eye on holding on to his job. “It’s liberating when you can do your job without worrying if it will end tomorrow. I’ve never worried about contracts or if my job was in jeopardy,” he says. “Probably the one time in my career where I veered away from that is the only time I’ve left feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful.” Ange is referring to his departure from coaching the national youth team in 2007. He won the role in 2000 after moving from his position as South Melbourne coach. But he was replaced after Australia failed to qualify for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup. It still irks him. “I started doing what I thought people wanted me to do and trying to fit in with the overall agenda. That doesn’t mean I would have been any more successful but I probably wouldn’t have left with the regrets I did,” he says ruefully. Ange then worked with Fox Sports as a commentator and with Football Federation Victoria before spending most of 2008 in Greece coaching then-third division club Panachaiki. The following year he returned to Australia to coach Brisbane Roar, where he became the first coach to win back-to-back A-League championships. His stint included a 36-match unbeaten run, which remains a record across all codes of football in Australia. In April 2012, he returned home to Melbourne to coach Melbourne Victory.

A Head Of The Game

A

nge Postecoglou owes a lot to the world game. It brought him the tight-knit circle of friends he’s had since he coached and captained the year 7 soccer team at Prahran High School. Soccer gave him the confidence to resign from a humdrum nine-to-five banking job, and it’s also how he met his wife, Georgia, in 2000. He was coaching South Melbourne and Georgia was the club’s newly appointed marketing manager. But the game’s influence on Ange’s life and identity doesn’t end there. Since he migrated to Melbourne from Athens as a five year old, soccer has been a glue that has held him close to his parents, particularly his father. Soccer clubs and match days were social hubs for migrants craving a taste of the homeland they’d left behind. It was no different for Ange’s father, Jim. After a hard week working as a carpenter and cabinetmaker, Jim went to South Melbourne Hellas, where he met new friends and could pretend, for a moment, he was back in Greece. Sharing those moments, Ange revelled in his father’s company. “Dad introduced me to soccer and I wanted to be close to him. It was the only time I saw him relax,” Ange says. “I started to play footy and got into cricket, but my father wanted to make sure his son didn’t lose the values of the past. We were in an unknown country and he didn’t want me to go into an unknown sport that he didn’t understand. So I became obsessed with football because it gave me a connection to my father.” That connection is still a major driver for Ange as he has progressed from high school coach to playing senior soccer and then to coaching at national and international level. “We always talk about migrants coming here for a better life but I’m sure my parents did not have a better life. Things would have been hard for them in Greece but at least they would have been surrounded by family and friends. They came here to give my sister and me the opportunity of a better life,” he says. “That’s a torch I still carry. I want to make sure I achieve what mum and dad fought for, so hopefully they get some satisfaction out of that. Dad is old school. He didn’t hug me and tell me he loved me every night and he’s still a hard taskmaster today.” Ange laughs when he recalls returning home to Melbourne from Sydney after leading the Socceroos to victory in the 2015 Asian Cup. The final was a hard-fought contest between South Korea and Australia with the home side winning its first Asian Cup in extra time. “I came home and showed dad the medal and cup and he said, ‘Well done son – but if you’d made a substitution you would have done it in full time’. It annoys the sh-t out of me,” Ange says. “Mind you, mum says when I’m not around he watches tapes of my games and says how proud he is, but I’ve always felt I was never good enough. That drives me – to have dad one day say, ‘You’ve done OK’. But I almost think I don’t want him to say it so I can maintain that drive to prove myself to him.” Ange’s playing career ran to 193 senior games for South Melbourne between 1984 and 1993. But it is as a coach that he is most comfortable and confident. “Playing was always a bit of a struggle. I was aware of my limitations and that allows fear to creep in on the field. I was captain at quite a young age, and I was confident talking about the game, but I had a nervousness about my ability. I never really believed I was a top-class player,” he says frankly. “I’ve never had that lack of confidence as a coach – it’s not arrogance but just a natural belief in what I do, plus


to play and we’re selling dreams about becoming a professional footballer but we only have 10 professional teams in our competition. If you grow up in Europe or South America, there are multiple avenues to get to the top. Here those avenues are very narrow and some great kids are walking away from the sport.”

A

nge’s commitment to the game that helped him ease into life beyond Athens is clear and he’s made plenty of sacrifices. Time away from Georgia and his three sons, James, 17, Max, two, and seven-month-old Alexi, are the biggest personal wrench. “My wife and I love going to the movies for our switch-off time and we love travelling back to Greece when we can. I also enjoy watching a game without being a coach. I can watch Liverpool play a game on TV and get as frustrated as any other supporter. “I missed a huge chunk of James’ growing up and I’m missing chunks of the two young ones growing up – I think that’s harder for me than for the boys. My father was working all the time and there weren’t many hugs and I overcompensate that with my kids. I worry that I am bringing them up too soft,” he says with a smile. James has taken up the game but Ange is careful to keep a low profile when his son plays – he usually hides in a remote corner of the field. “I’ve taken James into the dressing rooms at games when I am working and he understands what I do. He sees it’s a great job, but he sees the pressures.” Ange copes with those pressures and making the hard decisions that come with the national head coach role by keeping players at a respectful distance. While he’s empathetic, he maintains a professional remoteness. “People know that’s my personality so at any time if I say, ‘Let’s go for a coffee’ to a player or staff member they say ‘What’s going on, Ange?’. But I make tough decisions on a daily basis, so I need that barrier,” he says. That barrier means he’s not the greatest travel companion. He’s hears the stories of his players and staff trying to switch boarding passes when they realise they’ve drawn the seat next to the head coach. “Nobody wants to sit next to me because I don’t speak. A couple of times I’ve chuckled when young players are oblivious to how I am and start chatting to me and I shut that down pretty quickly. Eventually they realise it’s not personal. But I’m not that serious at home. I’m softer when I’m “I’ve always felt relaxed, like my father. I wasn’t good When he was with his friends and family, he enough. That was the life of the party, and that’s me. drives me – I enjoy being around to have Dad say, people who are close to me, telling the stories and ‘You’ve done OK’. cracking the jokes. If the players saw me then, they’d do a double take.” The focus now is on Russia and the 2018 World Cup, but what does the game hold for Ange beyond that? He’s never been one to plan too far ahead but says his next role will be overseas. “I want to coach abroad as an Australian. If I can go to Europe and have some success then people will say, ‘Well, hold on, maybe the Aussies do know something about the game’. That’s the next step for me.” ● smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au

FROM THE ASHES

PETER WILMOTH takes a sneak peek at the new incarnation of one of Melbourne’s favourite restaurants

S

t Kilda has its beloved and iconic restaurant back. Stokehouse 2.0 – or the Stokehouse Precinct, as owner Frank Van Haandel is calling it – is set to fully open next week and Frank says he is “jumping out of my skin”. “Bring back the good times,” he says, as builders around him saw, grind and put the finishing touches on this amazing new structure. “We’ve been waiting for this for three years.” In January 2014, a fire destroyed the original Stokehouse restaurant, a historic timber structure that, faced with engulfing flames, never stood a chance. “I got a phone about 11 o’clock that Friday night and I could hear the tremor in our manager’s voice when he told me, ‘Frank, there’s a fire at the Stokehouse’,” he recalls. “The old Stokehouse was predominantly built out of 80-100-year-old timbers and I knew a substantial fire would be very hard to stop.” Faced with rebuilding, Frank at no stage considered a re-make of what had been lost. Instead he asked for submissions from six architects known for their coastal-friendly buildings, choosing Robert Simeoni Architects’ design. “I wasn’t keen to do a replica,” Frank says. “I have to say my ego might have played a part in wanting to do something new because I have four sons. I’d like the Van Haandel name to continue.” After two years of planning and approval, building began a year ago and will finish just in time for the main restaurant’s opening on December 9. Within 24 hours of the reservation line opening last week, the restaurant had been booked out until April. Earlier this month, Frank gave us a tour of the almost finished building: four different identities within one five-green-star-graded structure, built at a cost of $13.5 million.

“My ego might have played a part in wanting to do something new” – Frank Van Haandel

Let the good times roll: Robert Simeoni’s design (main). Above: Frank Van Haandel (centre) with son Hugh (left) and new head chef Ollie Hansford outside the new restaurant. (MICHAEL RAYNER)

It’s a dramatic entrance. From a circular driveway, guests walk under a “sand-dune” to enter the building. There’s the option of taking an elevator to the Stokehouse Restaurant, the classic diner that will focus on seafood. Echoes of the old Stokehouse remain: the famous balcony overlooking the bay is now an “internal”, weatherproof terrace: a window can be opened or closed within two minutes to create an outdoor space. For hip younger diners there’s the ground-level Pontoon, which Frank calls “a fast, young, vibrant space”. It has craft beers on tap and shared food prepared on a four-metre grill, custom-designed in the US. Also on the ground floor, Paper Fish is an affordable and healthier version of a takeaway

fish and chip shop, while The Stoke Bar incorporates a station with freshly shucked oysters and sliced sashimi-grade fish. “It has something for everyone’s budget, backpackers right up to corporate diners,” Frank says. The new building’s credentials for sustainability are impeccable. Geothermal technology includes 3.5 kilometres of copper piping installed 80 metres below the building. A 300,000-litre rainwater-harvesting tank under the driveway services all water needs. The timber on the outside of the building will not require painting for 40 years, and no petroleum-based paints, glues or plastic have been used. Most of the timbers for the entry, the stairs, walls and floor were recovered from

Gippsland, where the State Government was cutting firebreaks. “I nearly teared up when I saw a poster one day from the geothermal company that said, ‘Stokehouse, powered by the Earth’,” Frank says. “There are three kitchens and one bar with high water and energy usage. To achieve five-star design is quite extraordinary.” Reaction to the new building has been overwhelmingly positive. Frank says there’s been an avalanche of people who love it. “A couple of knockers have said the footprint has grown. It’s because the old weatherboard beach shack never had a lift or disabled toilets or staff facilities with showers.” The Stokehouse’s dramatic renaissance has also provided the opportunity for a new guard to take the reins. Frank’s son Hugh, 28, is the restaurant’s manager. Head chef Ollie Hansford, previously with the Stokehouse in Queensland and in the city, is also 28. Frank knows it’s a young person’s game. “Restaurants, like the fashion industry, change fairly rapidly so to keep abreast of it you need youth and a changing of the guard.” Given its coveted beachside site and the affection with which the Stokehouse is held by so many, there was naturally pressure to achieve a brilliant solution. “Everyone feels a sense of ownership with the Stokehouse,” Frank says. “Everyone had stories. I believe what’s been achieved – with the restaurant appearing to float above the sand dune – in my opinion, is on a global level.” Frank is excited about the new era. “We’re not going to be talking about the past ever again, we’re just going to be talking about the future,” he says. “We’re bringing back the good times.” ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au » stokehouse.com.au/melbourne NOVEMBER 30, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 11

can go into regional wines. Australian winemakers are making the most of this freedom, producing amazing wines from grape combinations that might be considered, well, unusual. A blend of gewurtztraminer, riesling, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay? Or orange bitters blended in a sparkling – from Chandon, no less?

A blend of five grapes – grenache, sangiovese, tempranillo, barbera and shiraz – that smells invitingly of cherries, spice and earth. It’s seamless and savoury, with flavour hitting every corner of the mouth. With terrific structure and balance, as you’d expect with a blend, it’s bright, juicy and will take a light chill on a warm day. �

A 73/19/4/4 blend of cab sav, merlot, malbec and shiraz, this is a super wine that got better the longer the bottle was open. There’s a minty, cedar character plus rich blue and black fruits on the nose. It’s smooth and rich in the mouth, with blackberry, spice and earth, balance and glossy, dense tannins. Delicious now, but wait a few years if you can. �

The crew at Chandon in the Yarra Valley made their own orange-based bitters and added a dash to the sparkling. This is the result. It’s designed to be drunk over ice and there’s a heady set of aromas, including orange marmalade. It’s creamy smooth, slightly sweet without ice and full of complex citrus and stonefruit flavours. It’s the perfect drink for a hot night. �

BRUNCH \ Ascot Food Store in Ascot Vale. It’s my local and the menu is great. Eggs benedict with the pork belly is a winner. If you feel like something sweet, they do great doughnuts, too.

ABOUT CHRIS TO SEE AND BE SEEN \ Oter is the perfect place for a great dinner or even a quick business lunch – French food as we don’t know it. Make sure you keep some room for dessert; those beautiful daily baked tarts are not to be missed.

A FANCY DINNER \ Amaru in Armadale. I love Clinton [McIver’s] food. It’s the perfect example of contemporary Australian cuisine. It’s fine dining but with a casual approach and not intimidating.

A DATE \ Bistro Vue The setting and the food is always consistent. David Wilson [restaurant manager] makes you feel special.

A QUIET DINNER \ La Tortilleria in Flemington. It’s close to my home and the outside tables are perfect on a nice Melbourne day. It’s authentic, tasty Mexican food and they always have great Mexican cocktails to choose from.

A BIG GROUP \ Mister Jennings The mezzanine level upstairs is perfect for a big group. The atmosphere of a private dining room makes any occasion feel special. You’re sure to be blown away by Ryan [Flaherty’s] food creation.

magine a warm, savoury custard, floating beneath a layer of thick, mushroomy broth – wobbly, but still firm enough to put a spoon through so you can watch it yield satisfyingly to your whim, revealing unexpected seafood delights floating beneath. Chawanmushi feels like an entirely appropriate dish to begin with at this unassuming Japanese bistro. Especially when theirs is some of the best I’ve had – not only in depth of flavour and texture, but also in its generous portion size, packed with scallop, prawn and shiitake. I can’t decide whether this or the agedashi tofu – deep fried silken tofu served in a silky broth with crab – is my favourite, so I order both. Also on your list should be the tororo-isobeage, which might read like an easy way of using up all your vowels in Scrabble, but is actually a kooky yam-filled nori-wrapped dumpling – kinda crunchy and briny, but also slightly sweet. Sashimi fans will love the slick knife-work and artful array of fresh fish, including some chubby scallops that almost started a chopstick war. Don’t be surprised by the smaller portions – just order more than you’d think. Bring family, bring friends, bring your sumo pants. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

COOKING \ prawns are great right now, especially those coming out of Skull Island in the Northern T Territory. For perfectly poached prawns at home, simply cover with boiling water and leave to cool. ● READING \ I’ve loved getting to know Rick Stein better while in Margaret River this month and his book Under a Mackerel Sky (Penguin Books) is back in my handbag – so insightful and honest, just like the man himself. ●

SARAH HARRIS ASKS MELBOURNE PERSONALITIES

I

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

n our great-grandparents’ time, it wasn’t uncommon for people to live out their days in the same house. But today we’re mega mobile. Statistics show the average Melbourne homeowner will hold their property for 11.4 years. Close to 30 per cent of owners have moved in the past five years, most settling within 10 kilometres of their former residence. But how do we mobile Melburnians decide where we want to live? Three local personalities who have recently upped stumps tell us why and how they moved. ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

Jennifer Keyte \ Bay watch “I am calling it my sea change,” the Channel Seven Weekend News presenter jokes of her move from Stonnington to Bayside. “I grew up in Essendon, then for the whole of my working and personal life I was very much inner-city South Melbourne, South Yarra, Toorak. I never, ever saw myself living bayside, but as I got older the idea seemed more appealing. “There was a definite campaign from family and friends who had moved this way. Visiting them, I found I really enjoyed it – just going for a walk along the foreshore made me feel like I was on holidays. “Now, going to work, I drive along Beach Road looking at the water every day, and it is very relaxed compared to travelling from Toorak through the tunnel.” Nonetheless Jennifer was anxious not to disrupt the lives of her teenage sons, James and Zander, without being sure the move was in all their best interests. “It was definitely a case of try before I buy. So we rented before I bought. During that time I explored bayside quite a bit and knew I loved the Elwood end. Things move at a slower pace here. People chat when they put their bins out; they don’t run out scared someone might see them. They strike up a conversation. “It is actually really nice to have a change, but I think it takes courage to say, ‘You know what, let’s try something different’.” ●

Tanya Ha \ Brunswick bound

(MICHAEL RAY A NER) AY

ONLINE \

It was only after moving from Altona Meadows to Brunswick that environmental advocate, broadcaster, science communicator and author Tanya Ha discovered a resource that gave her the nitty gritty of her new neighbourhood. “I was doing some work for the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network, which has all these publicly accessible data maps that show how suburbs compare across a range of indicators like unemployment, income, access to health services, transport, financial and shopping services, education, even the vulnerability to potential mortgage stress and increases in petrol prices. “I hadn’t realise how disadvantaged parts of the western and outer suburbs are until then. I think I was in denial. “Take public transport. Where I was, it used to take me an hour-and-a-half to get to work by public transport. Now, from Brunswick, it takes me 50 minutes – even though, as the crow flies, it is actually further away from my work. “The AURIN map shows liveability at a neighbourhood or precinct level, which is important, particularly as your children get older and venture further from home,” Tanya says. “One of the maps you can view is called the VAMPIRE Index, which stands for Vulnerability Indices for Mortgage, Petroleum and Inflation Risks and Expenditure. It’s a fun acronym for a serious subject – it literally shows the suburbs that suck mortgage and petrol money by showing susceptibility to interest rate rises and petrol price hikes. I tell all my friends now, ‘Don’t move house without looking at the AURIN map’.” ●

REBEKAH ELMALOGLOU – CALL OF THE NORTH Adam Elliot \ city slicker For years Oscar-winning animator Adam Elliot danced around what he now believes is the ultimate destination. “In my life I have probably moved 20 times. It is a bit of a curse in my family, we all move a lot, and in the past five years I have moved from St Kilda to Windsor to Thornbury and now to the CBD. “I think this last move was motivated by FOMO – fear of missing out. Dan (Adam’s partner) and I are very social people and we are always in the city anyway and then it just dawned on us, well, why don’t we just live here, right in the thick of things. “We were in Paris last year in a shoebox and I have always loved the idea of small living. So we sold 80 per cent of our possessions, right down to knives and forks, on eBay, and just kept the basics. “Now I have so much more time when it comes to cleaning. I can vacuum the whole place with a Dustbuster basically. “People say, ‘Why would you want to live in the city, it is noisy, polluted, crowded?’, but it is actually quieter. There is also colour and movement, inspiration and vibrancy – all the things I need when I am writing. “I am pretty impulsive when it comes to moving. I romanticise the whole thing, think the grass is always greener. But, I’d have to say this is my favourite place so far. I think we will be here for good now.” ●

invited to the theatre before, and they came, all over Australia.” And not just all over Australia. The show was a huge hit at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at fringe fests in Dublin and Adelaide. “We have so much beautiful talent that is just not getting an opportunity to be seen,” Kim says. “We’ve worked with so many Honeys around Australia, from amazing drag queens to B-girls to amazing circus performers. We decided to write ourselves and these people onto the stage.” These so-called Honeys include beatboxers, storytellers, singers, circus performers and dancers from Tongan, Indonesian, Samoan, Maori, South African and Kamilaroi backgrounds. Together they’ve created a genre-bending production that Kim describes as a cross between a night at the theatre and a Beyonce concert. “The arts have the capacity to change culture and we’re in a culture that needs changing,” Kim says. “Laughter is the best way of breaking preconceptions. We laugh a lot and the audience gets to laugh a lot.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

I love Windsor

For some me time? I like taking a Saturday or Sunday stroll around Albert Park Lake.

National Institute of Circus Arts student Ryan Darwin loves the circus because it allows him to be an artist and a physical technician at the same time. Ryan is an aerial rope specialist. He plans to study dance and perfect his street performance show when he graduates from NICA this year. He lives in Windsor and loves it for its convenience and street art.

To catch up with friends? Tyranny of Distance. You’ve got the option of sitting out front or you can bunker down in the back on one of the couches and chill. I’ve also had some great occasions hanging out at Somewhere Bar on Chapel Street listening to my mate, Hugo, play music.

Where do you go for a fantastic meal? I’m a fan of Lucky Coq because their pizzas are yummy and good value for money. They’ve also got a good music selection.

For a sneaky takeaway? Tandoori Hut on High. Awesome curry, friendly people and located close to home.

(MICHAEL RAYNER)

For a great cup of coffee? Mr Mister Cafe. The staff are a fantastic mixture of lovely, wacky friendliness and they are very receptive to people dancing and singing as they enter the building.

To get some exercise? Having a physical lifestyle at school five days a week, I don’t go out of my way to hit up gyms.

“A lot of people mention how tranquil and fresh the space feels – we can thank the plants for that.” – Alana Langan, co-owner

Ivy Muse is a botanical emporium with stunning products to transform your home into a stylish green space. Who’s behind the counter? Alana Langan and Jacqui Vidal have been friends for about 14 years. “We both also run our own separate businesses and had always been keen to collaborate together in some way,” Alana says. They created a range of indoor plant stands and launched Ivy Muse online in 2014 and opened their High Street shop in August. What’s in store? The Ivy Muse range of plant stands, pots and plants, along with books, homewares and knickknacks from brands including Bonnie and Neil, Studio Twocan and Sophie Moran. Who’s buying? “Our customers are a mix of keen green thumbs and also those relatively new to keeping plants – pretty much anyone who has an inclination toward greenery,” Alana says. A lot of customers come in for advice about styling and growing indoor plants, she says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

ROAD TRIP

T R AV E L

PETER WIL MOTH TOURS THE MORNINGTON PENINSUL A

I

t was a bit like the Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon movie The Trip: two old friends driving (in our case in a new Porsche 718 Boxster) from winery to restaurant, riffing about life, food and wine – three topics with a lot of range. My friend Matthew knows a lot about wine (he makes it) and food (he loves eating it), and life (he is generous sharing his thoughts on it). So that was handy. Oh, and there were impersonations, too (bad ones – don’t ask me to do Michael Caine) and phone calls home, just like the movie. To the journey … What a car I found myself in hitting the highway towards the peninsula’s fabled wineries. I was road-ready in seconds. I touched a button and the roof came down (it takes just a few moments). And with just a touch of the accelerator came the sound of the car’s throaty growl. Where have you been all my life? ● pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au

PORT PHILLIP ESTATE

Stay PORT PHILLIP ESTATE offers six exquisitely appointed suites featuring black sofas and reindeer pelt sofa throws, artworks by Bill Henson and sumptuous bedrooms. There’s a private terrace looking out over the vineyard towards Westernport Bay, perfect for a glass of wine or coffee, or in our case a breakfast in the sunshine of toast from a fresh loaf, muesli with yoghurt and fruit, and several coffees from the DeLonghi machine. Perfect digs to de-brief on our wine tour. The Dining Room offers a delicious menu: think Queensland spanner crab with nero pasta, puffed rice and crustacean crumble and charred John Dory with confit lemon, octopus and macadamia. And what a view to enjoy it with – the vineyards rolling out in front of us and Westernport beyond. ●

Eat The next day we headed the Boxster towards TEN MINUTES BY TRACTOR winery/restaurant, where we had lunch after an excellent at-table wine tasting from a highly knowledgeable sommelier. We settled in to taste the Estate Chardonnay 2014 and the McCutcheon Pinot Noir 2013. Outstanding. The winery restaurant’s casual country-house setting belies its serious ambition as a fine diner in the country (with an Age Good Food Guide hat). You will be guided to wines matching the food or mood. We tried the Tasmanian rabbit ballotine, the roasted breast of Great Ocean Road duck, and finished with slow-roasted blueberries and a blueberry mousse with lemon aspen ice cream and marscapone snow. Large wow factor. ●

t would be easy to be intimidated by a car like this, Idown yet driving it turns out to be easy, even just popping to the shops. The power is phenomenal and delivered with such disarming smoothness it’s easy to go into deep illegality without realising. Overtaking is ridiculously simple, you’re out and back in a flash even on half pedal. Don’t give this car full pedal until you’re completely prepared for what happens. The acceleration presses you back in your seat so hard you’ll hang onto the wheel more as an anchor than a control. Suburban housewife gets to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds, experiences jubilation. The GTR is beautifully finished and appointed, even the base (non-leather) edition, but forget the back seat, even for children. The gap between it and the front seat is something you’d post a letter through. The boot is good for a weekend away with a couple of soft bags and maybe a case of wine. I’m surprised I liked this car so much. Just note that you will need to keep your cute little hatchback for any task other than sheer indulgence. ●

the faster it goes around. There has to be a limit to this and I’m truly relieved I didn’t reach it. Yet the ride quality, while certainly firm, isn’t sharp. Excellent seating helps to make the GTR surprisingly comfortable over long distances. There’s a cacophony of mechanical noises – tyres, transmission, driveline and glorious engine burble as the big V6 rockets to 7500rpm. For an enthusiast this is a symphony, pure and simple. The price is filling up with only the most expensive 98 RON fuel, and the GTR takes heaps of it. It is a true supercar and it need make no excuses to anything that costs under half a mil. As such, it’s bargain basement, but it still has a hard row to hoe. Lots of GTRs, only some of them genuine, have been privately imported and they’re a lead weight on resale value. And the price falls comfortably in Maserati territory. ●

ittle Projects’ latest flagship residential development, on the former Dairy Bell site on the corner of Belgrave and Waverley roads, is attracting hundreds of interested registrations prior to its official release early next year. Inspired by Waverley Oval parklands directly opposite and the site’s former art-deco dairy factory, Hedgeley Malvern East is a premium low-rise, north-facing building that curves around a large multilevel central atrium garden. When the development is completed in late 2018, residents will have an extensive landscaped rooftop terrace, a lounge with dining area, cinema and gym. Seven high-end street-level retail tenancies facing Waverley Road will include a restaurant and cafe. The $100-million six-level project is designed by award-winning SJB Architects and AdeB Architects to offer a diverse range of spacious 117 one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments without any typical layouts. Thanks to wide-ranging green initiatives, the building has an average seven-star energy rating with some apartments getting up to eight stars. The upper levels of Hedgeley’s distinctive curvilinear facade are deeply set back, allowing generous terraces of up to 133 square metres that follow the building’s soft curves. Internal living areas range from

47 to 178.5 square metres and prices start at $455,000. Little Projects general manager of sales and marketing Fergus Humphries says there were 600-plus registrations of interest by mid-November and Little Projects expects Hedgeley to sell out quickly at release. “We designed Hedgeley for local owner-occupiers, who make up 70 per cent of registrations so far. It’s definitely appealing to downsizers as well as young professionals who have grown up in the area and local lifestyle investors,” he says. “Buyers are attracted by the diversity of apartment layouts as well as the prominent location, the contemporary design and amenities.” Fergus says the project was named after Hedgeley Dene Farm, which was originally on the site, as well as nearby Hedgeley Dene Gardens. Little Projects identified the importance of surrounding greenery and garden spaces for buyers and has placed a strong emphasis on outlooks and landscaped gardens in the project. “You will look out over trees and greenery from every apartment and can retreat to the central atrium garden and landscaped rooftop terrace for relaxation and entertainment.” All apartments have parking and storage in the secure basement. ● LIZ McLACHLAN lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au

In the bathroom there’s a stone-topped vanity, shower with dual heads, ceiling-height vanity cupboard and an in-wall cistern. ●

Not only is it surrounded by greenery, Hedgeley also places a high emphasis on green initiatives. The building has an average seven-star rating, with some apartments achieving up to eight stars. Noteworthy sustainable elements include rainwater harvesting, solar panels, sensor LED lighting, energy-efficient appliances and fittings, jetpack charging units for electric vehicles, double glazing, cross-ventilation, superior acoustic insulation and optimisation of natural light. “From our past experience, we know the apartments will maintain even temperatures without having to turn on air-conditioning or heating for most of the year,” Fergus says. ●

Hedgeley is 13 kilometres south-east of the CBD on a prominent corner opposite Waverley Oval. It’s a three-minute walk from East Malvern station and a five-minute drive to the Monash Freeway and Chadstone’s 530-plus shops and dining and entertainment options.

swatch of fabric spied through the window of an antique shop in Rouen, France, on one of Catriona Rowntree’s many journeys was the starting point for her lovely conservatory. “There it was, my dream fabric, and I kind of matched everything from there,” says the much-loved presenter of the Nine Network’s Getaway program, plumping a cushion covered in a Pierre Frey Aloha print. The result is a room that is at once lush and light, and the undisputed centrepiece of the home Catriona shares with farmer husband James Pettit and their “two rambunctious sons” Andrew, 7, and five-year-old Charles. The 1870s bluestone house – the former manager’s cottage of a still thriving sheep and grain farm on the western plains outside Geelong – was somewhat dilapidated when the then-newlyweds took it on. “When you live in a property like this you are custodians, and we wanted to revel in the history of it, but apart from that we disagreed on just about everything,” Catriona laughs. “The result is a combination of my husband and me trying to come together with the pretty meeting the practical.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

I kept killing everything and my mother-in-law gave me one of Paul Bangay’s books and said, ‘H He lives nearby, if he can grow it so can you’. Paul and I are best of friends now, so that also helps. This is my favourite rose, the Double Delight, which came from my friend Ruth’s garden. It has the most amazing perfume.

I was forever looking for fabric the colour of grass because, for me, living here is about appreciating the outdoors. Adelaide Bragg (of Adelaide Bragg & Associates) sourced this Pierre Frey Shanghai fabric (a blend of cotton, linen, viscose and silk). The colour is Prairie. It’s perfect and won’t show Vegemite.

My father inherited this from his uncle, who drove it straight out of the showroom in 1965. When my father (Stephen) was very sick with cancer, we did it up as a project. He did not live to see the finished result, but every time I’m in that car I feel like I am getting a big hug from my dad.

It began with a couple of pieces, but then I went to an auction at Rene Rivkin’s home and a friend said, “Why don’t you put a bid on all the Lalique?”, and I accidentally got everything. Now I love to source pieces from auctions. I like the thrill of the chase.

These chooks are the ultimate example of the pretty meeting the practical. They lay the most beautiful palest blue eggs that are brilliant for baking. My dear friend Kate, my country woman role model, gave me my first chooks when my son was born.

She did this, in part, by choosing the right furnishings and by zoning the space. “There is the cellar and bar, the all-day dining and the signature restaurant. Each has its own separate area and they are divided by a transparent, moveable unit,” she says. Brass details on the bar are key elements. The brass is “pleated” in a way that is almost reminiscent of the contours of the landscape. It is repeated from the tasting bar to the service bars. “In the restaurant space we wanted to create a more intimate and luxurious atmosphere, so the floor there has a large carpet,” Anja says. Having worked with Eli on his homestead way up at the top of the hill, Anja was inspired by the local floral emblems such as the kangaroo paw that appears in the printed fabric in the upholstered restaurant chairs. The palette of tan leather, teal and dark green includes tabletops of local hardwood and quite a lot of black in the steel frames of the chairs and tables. Timber also features in the main bar. The site had never been built on before and Karl Fender wanted the building to connect with the fields, vineyards and mountains. “The place-making is about putting the building in an appropriate context so that it

The giant wine barrels, lined internally and externally with timber, are all about being cosy, having an intimate dining experience and a view of the vineyard. “They actually came as a second thought,” Fender says. A lucky second thought, as it turns out, because diners nearly always want to sit in a barrel. ● MARIA HARRIS mharris@theweeklyreview.com.au » 882-886 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream. 5962 1333 » levantinehill.com.au

421.5 square metres. The building’s interior design is strong and assured, showing the confident brush strokes of prestigious design practice and multi-residential specialist, Mim Design. The entrance lobby is warm and welcoming with a timber floor, polished plaster walls, bespoke feature lighting and bronze detail – a luxurious motif that is repeated in the apartments. Next to the foyer is a residents’ wine cellar, where private collections can be stored and enjoyed with friends at the banquette table.

The apartments are sophisticated, finished with luxurious materials and masterfully designed for excellent functionality and seamless flow. Pale tones contrast with dark woodwork creating quite a bold look and instant sophistication. Plus Architecture and Mim Design have created a strong look to the building. “It has character and the beauty that comes from using authentic materials. We took our cues from the architecture of the building and the also from the

Hawthorn village feel,” Mim Design director Emma Mahlook says. In the living area, light pours in over the wide terraces and through floor-to-ceiling, black-framed glazing. Floors of pale timber, with boards laid in an orderly, aligned pattern, are an indication of the craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout the dwellings. Penthouses have a fireplace on a marble hearth and dark timber storage and paneling in the living area. All apartments have a stone, marble-trimmed plinth in the living area. Grey and white marble is a signature material throughout. In the kitchens, it combines with 2pac cabinetry and timber-trimmed shelves to create an area that is a beautiful part of the living room as well as delighting the chef. Ample storage, Dietrich integrated appliances and brass accents continue the luxurious theme. In the bathrooms, marble is used for the floors and on the walls to dado level in the penthouse apartments, and on vanities in the smaller apartments. All bathrooms have ample storage; larger apartments have twin vanities and freestanding baths. Bedrooms and walk-in wardrobes are carpeted with a lush woollen weave. “We wanted to create a look that was timeless, individual and sophisticated – a space and a look that would be appropriate for the demographic,” Emma says. » mimdesign.com.au » luminaryhawthorn.com.au

N E W LY COMPLETED APARTMENTS


Marcel Gasking share’s his top tips for creating a relaxing space.

1

Find a rug that complements the tones in your room. This will create a sense of comfort and frame the space.

2

Select an armchair, using a sumptuous fabric that feels like it envelops you when you sit in it. Rich velvets for a warming environment or a soft leather for a more contemporary look are great options.

3

Think about your colour tones and add some pattern that will give highlights to the space. Bold cushions with texture are a clever way to add interest. Mix up cushion sizes to create depth and contrast.

4

Including a side table in your cosy corner will help add proportion to the space. A tall side table with a lamp next to the armchair creates ambience and light.

PAST, PRESENT & PERFECT 31 CANTERBURY ROAD, CAMBERWELL, 3124

T

o own a Federation/arts and crafts Ussher and Kemp original in blue-chip Camberwell is truly something special. To have such a property with a compatible, up-to-the-minute extension of living and sleeping quarters discreetly added, along with a self-cleaning pool, floodlit tennis court and enough lawn for a party marquee or a pony, is exceptional. Among the eminent names associated with Melbourne’s historical architecture, Ussher and Kemp are renowned as the design team that set the tone for grand turn-of-the-century residences in the affluent, leafy environs of Boroondara and Stonnington. Carramah is as much a building for admirers of architectural heritage as it is a sublime home for families with children attending any of the highly regarded schools nearby (several within walking distance, public and private). It was built in 1909 for a gentleman spice trader. Hawthorn architect Peter Barton completed its most extensive addition and painstaking renovation just a couple of years ago for the vendors and their four children. “It has a character all of its own, open-plan but with spaces that reflect the arts-and-crafts style; each space has a sense of belonging and its own personality,” Peter says. The original footprint is set askew on its 2089-square-metre block at the corner of Rubens Grove, a few doors from where the Anniversary walking/cycling trail meanders through Shenley Ground towards undulating Boroondara Park. The deep front lawn, bordered by clipped box hedges, lush azaleas and white roses, faces south. On the west side, the tennis court, lawn and pool give it separation from neighbours. Carramah has a fascinating, complex facade of gables. A battened gable over the main bedroom’s bay window

dominates the right side; another bedroom’s smaller, plainer gable is in the middle above painted shingles and the tiled porch; and a mid-sized gable on the left is dramatically impaled by the formal living room’s chimney. The entire exterior, including the two-storey rear extension set at an angle, shows continuity in its shapes and proportions. Period features in the front rooms are exquisite: high strapped ceilings, honey-coloured kauri floors, vibrant stained glass and a grand archway framing a fireside nook. The foyer is bigger than a bedsit and the spacious combined lounge/dining area looks out to a side verandah and the tennis court. The main-bedroom domain has a seat built into its broad bay window and a private hall leading to the study, bathroom and dressing room fitted with storage. The upper storey at the front has three large bedrooms, a rumpus room and a mostly white bathroom. A walkway veers off to the left to reach another bathroom and two pink bedrooms, each with a cubbyhole under the sloping roofline. Downstairs, the new wing is a large open-plan living area with a side of gently arched windows facing north-west and matte oak parquetry underfoot. There’s a TV/sitting area and a seven-metre-long meals zone but the three-part Calacatta marble kitchen – the vendor’s favourite space – dominates. An island bench fitted with a chunky chopping block is opposite the integrated double sink; a scullery sub-division has sink, Miele cookers and a five-oven duck-egg blue Aga range; and there’s a separate walk-in pantry. Chefs’ options are expanded by an outdoor barbecue kitchen. Tucked along the back is a black tiled bathroom, storeroom, garden shed and laundry access. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON property@domain.com.au

40 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016


MALVERN EAST \ 35 WARLEY ROAD Old-world refinement combined with recent renovations means this hosue is set up for modern living. First impressions are captivating and the two-storey interior follows them up with space and style  aplenty. The front gate opens to a verdant garden. Charcoal paintwork with white trims brings out the best in the Edwardian facade, with its wooden fretwork and leadlight detail. There are four bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and three with open fireplaces, off the entrance hall. They share a big bathroom with a spa bath, opposite which the laundry is a good size for a family. Creating a sanctuary for parents on the second storey, the huge main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, decadent modern suite and bifold doors to a large balcony. There’s also a study and a home theatre up here. Back on ground, the open-plan kitchen, dining and living areas have timber floors and custom joinery. They also enjoy a broad connection with the terrace. Stone surfaces, sleek appliances and a designer-tiled splashback make the kitchen a highlight. The terrace is covered for maximum usability, while the backyard invites children to roll and tumble in the sunshine. For stretching legs further, stroll to Ardrie Park or cross the highway to East Caulfield Recreation Reserve. Caulfield station, Waverley Road shops and Monash University Caulfield Campus are also in easy walking distance. ● KAY KAY KEIGHERY

the delightful doors connecting it with the lounge. Swapping carpet for parquetry floors, the open-plan kitchen, meals and family area has room for watching television and hosting all-in gatherings. Glass walls offer aspects across the backyard while letting in lots of light. Then there’s the billiard room; where kids might get raucous without bothering others. Double doors in the family area and the billiard room lead to the backyard. The pergola-covered terrace has a built-in barbecue.

The paving extends to surround the pool and spa, while a patch of lawn next to the pool provides an area for play. All four bedrooms upstairs come with storage. One opens to the front balcony. The main bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe, a sleek en  suite and retreat, encourages parents to take time out. Proximity to Gardiner station, trams, freeways and prestigious schools bolsters the solid and enduring draw of this house. ● KAY KAY KEIGHERY

42 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 30, 2016


MALVERN EAST \ 78 EMO ROAD Heart and home go hand-in-hand at this property, where the vendors have lived for 30 years, having restored the Edwardian weatherboard house to a family residence from its 1950s conversion to two flats. Buyers who are familiar with the quiet, friendly local streets and their proximity to transport, shops, schools and beautiful parks will know the value in giving it a fresh makeover. A main-bedroom en suite would be an improvement, and the family room and meals area could be further opened up to the neat back garden, which has paving for outdoor dining, box hedges and a pool that was installed two years ago. The c1910 origins of the house can be seen in its facade. The raised timber verandah has a corrugated-iron bullnose roof, turned posts and fretwork. Battens that decorate the roof apex are repeated on the carport. In the deep front garden behind a charcoal picket fence, hydrangeas, roses and lavenders display a riot of spring colour and a silver birch shades the sitting room’s bay window from the afternoon sun. The house has a central hall. The sitting and dining rooms are on the left; three bedrooms (with built-in wardrobes), bathroom and powder room are on the right. The central staircase leads to a fourth bedroom overlooking the back garden, a bathroom and a fitted study that could be an extra bedroom if needed. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON
