Melbourne restaurateur Joe Mammone has listed his stunning Prahran townhouse and hopes to sell it for $1.7 million. The hospitality industry veteran has managed some of the world’s finest restaurants, and now owns two of Melbourne’s best for Italian fine dining, Sarti and Il Bacaro. It comes as no surprise that the three-bedroom home of the well experienced host features an impressive entertaining area.

“A living space leading to a balcony with views of the city… I’d say that’s a pretty good entertaining area,” Mammone says. The home is part of a complex of 10 townhouses designed by architecture firm McBride Charles Ryan and built in 2000. The boutique complex with its recognisable facade that resembles crushed paper, was a cutting edge design for the new millennium.

It won the Multi-Residential Architecture Award at the Australian Institute of Architects Victorian Chapter Awards in 2001 and the Award for Multi-Residential Units at the Stonnington Council Urban Design Awards. Mammone has since gutted and renovated the interior including installing an Italian-made Snaidero kitchen.

The master bedroom is fitted with designer wardrobes and a lavish ensuite. There are two other light-filled bedrooms on the first level. The living area sits above that, with a spacious open plan dining area looking out onto the balcony and offering city views through a full-height glass wall. There is also a striking communal pool area restricted to the 10 sets of residents.

The eye-catching facade. Mammone says he is not in any hurry to sell, but thought it would be a good time to list the property with few comparable homes on the market. He has bought a similar property nearby in Prahran and is pursuing another townhouse development with a friend. Early next year, Mammone looks set to open a new Italian dining hall in South Yarra called Bar Carolina.

A few interested parties have already been through the property. The townhouse is likely to go to auction in mid to late November. Follow us on Twitter for more news, tips and inspiration.

BIR eases on condo dues Posted by Online tempocomph Manila, Philippines. The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has softened its stand on the collection of income and value-added taxes out of the association dues, membership fees and other charges paid by condominium and homeowners associations.

WITH THE ISSUANCE of Revenue Memorandum Circular No. (RMC) 9-2013, clarifying the taxability of association dues, membership fees and other assessments/charges collected by homeowners’ associations, many taxpayers were unfortunately perturbed on whether Republic Act No. (RA) 9904 (Magna Carta for Homeowners and Homeowners’ Associations) was blatantly disregarded and whether the previous related Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) rulings were revoked.

Magna Carta for homeowners, homeowners' groups. Wednesday, 01 February 2012 20:56 Atty. Rosa Michele C. Bagtas / On Firm Ground. THE Philippine real-estate market remains on an upswing and “mass housing,” for instance, remains to be included in the priority areas of investment. In view of the numerous subdivisions, villages and other housing projects that have been and are still being developed all over the country, basic community services and facilities will always be required in such projects but these cannot be provided entirely by the local government. Hence, these communities are encouraged to have homeowners’ associations that will take care of providing and maintaining, among other services, security, street lighting, street cleaning, garbage collection and disposal.
