A new chapter for Hawthorne bungalow

first_img24 Conventry Street, Hawthorne. Time taken: 12 months Reno spend: $600,000When Pauline Narloch first laid eyes on her Hawthorne home she knew it was a “renovators delight”.After buying the house at 24 Coventry St with her husband in 2008, Mrs Narloch spent 12 months transforming the old 1920s art deco house into a entertainer’s home.“We lived here for a year before we changed anything. It took us about two years to start,” Mrs Narloch said. BEFORE: 24 Coventry Street, Hawthorne when it was bought by the Narlochs.“I was diagnosed with breast cancer just as we moved in, so a lot of our ideas for our renovations ended up changing. AFTER: How it looks today.“The house is on top of a hill and exposed to north-east breezes so we ended up putting in a lot more glass than we had planned. We originally wanted to put in verandas.”She said when they bought the home, the kitchen and bathrooms were of original 1920s style with old cupboards. BEFORE: The pool area needed some TLC.“Nothing was built-in and the sink was in its original condition. The bathroom had terrazzo flooring and the tiles were dark and murky green,” Mrs Narloch said.“Let’s just say the renovations were a challenge.” AFTER: The pool after its makeover.While the original house was retained, Mrs Narloch said they lifted the property and moved it on the block to take advantage of the views. Adding big entertaining areas were a major part of the renovations.They also added a lower floor and an extra living area. AFTER: The house now has plenty of open living spaces.The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is on a 810sq m block and includes a swimming pool and wet bar.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours agoWhile the renovations were under way, Mrs Narloch and her family moved into a townhouse next door, so they could keep an eye on the transformation and liaise with the builder.

Joshua: Tyson Fury Is Just Another Opponent For Me

first_img In Fury’s situation, he went overboard in celebrating after he defeated IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, and it cost him three years of his career. Fury has turned things around, captured the WBC belt, and he has a lot of boxing fans convinced that he’s the #1 heavyweight on the planet. Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) saw his career take a hit last June when his replacement opponent Andy Ruiz Jr. stopped him in the seventh round in his U.S debut at Madison Square Garden in New York. Although Joshua avenged the loss with a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision last December, he didn’t get the credit he should have because Ruiz came into the fight a fat 283-pound blob. “I’m here to make history, and I’m fired up,” said Joshua to @BritishGQ. “Fury is just another opponent. Yeah, it’s going to be big for everyone else, but I got to keep myself together. “I’m looking at Fury like he’s just another fighter. Trust me. In terms of the spectacle and the trash-talking and two juggernauts coming together. “I can’t wait. I’ve tasted what being at the top of the mountain feels like, and I’ve tasted what it feels like being knocked off that mountain feels like. “I’ve climbed my way back up, and whoever steps in front of me now, I’m not looking to go back down. So when I’m fighting [Kubrat] Pulev, and I get the opportunity to fight Tyson Fury for the WBC championship of the world, they’re going to see what it feels like for a man that had it all and lost it and got it back. “A man that has experienced that turbulence and doesn’t want to go through it again,’ said Joshua. It’s impossible to take Joshua seriously when he says he sees Fury as just another fighter. He obviously will be concerned with Fury when the two of them face each other in 2021. Right now, it’s still too early to say for sure that Joshua and Fury will be fighting in 2021. If one or both lose their next fights, then it’s safe to say that they won’t be fighting in 2021. Wilder won’t step aside according to Bob Arum:“Tyson Fury, you’re either at the top of the ocean, or you’re drowning under it. I don’t know. There’s no balance. I can’t really comment on Tyson Fury’s issues. I’ve got my own opinions and views of that person. “All I want to know is when I’m going to beat him, and when I’m going to fight him. I don’t really care anything else about Tyson Fury with all due respect,” said an irritated sounding Joshua. Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) has got it together mentally since coming back from near oblivion in 2018, but one destructive loss will likely send him right back to that dark place. If Deontay Wilder knocks Fury out cold in their rematch later this year, it wouldn’t be surprising if he balloons up to 400 pounds again, and loses it in self-pity and food. It’s predictable to assume that Fury will crumble mentally if he gets knocked out by Wilder or Joshua. Coming events cast their shadows before. Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) is calling Tyson Fury “just another fighter,” but he’s still looking forward to the fight. Both of these two giant heavyweights have found success and then watched it all fall apart. Loading… Fury seems to believe that he’s got the win over Wilder in the bag, and could be in for a rude awakening on the night. If some of those right hands that missed Fury from last time had hit him flush, he likely would have been knocked out again. Before Wilder’s equilibrium was thrown off in round three after being hit with a textbook illegal rabbit punch from Fury, he was throwing scorching right hands that he one-punch knockout written all over them. “I got beat. I got beaten to a pulp and had to pull myself back together,” said Joshua in talking about his loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. “Now they’re going to see the rebirth of me. “Everyone writes me off in this division, but I believe I will go down as this generation’s great. That’s what I’m destined to do,” said Joshua. Andy Ruiz Jr. (33-2, 22 KOs) did a number on Joshua in their first fight in June 2019 in knocking him down four times, and forcing him to quit on his feet in the 7th. It wasn’t a fight in which Joshua’s face was beaten to a pulp. It was more of a case of Joshua’s being hurt by the concussive punches from Ruiz, who unloaded on him. It’s clear that if Ruiz had come into the rematch in shape last December, he would have chased Joshua down and battered him into submission a second time. Joshua looked terrified the entire fight and spent much of the time, either holding or running. That strategy would have been easy for Ruiz to nullify if he was in good shape and if he had a trainer that he listened to. If Ruiz came into the fight in the low 250s, and if he had cut off the ring faster, he would have forced Joshua to exchange with him more. Also, Ruiz needed to throw four-punch combinations when he was near Joshua. He didn’t do that in the rematch because it looked like he was trying to keep from gassing out. Ruiz also let Joshua grab him in a clinch all night long, and he didn’t attempt to keep throwing while being held. Ruiz was giving up and taking rest breaks when Joshua would hold him. Joshua however explains Why He’s Fighting Pulev: “Why am I hanging on with Pulev?” said Joshua. “So there are five belts. IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO. They belong to me. Tyson Fury has the WBC. Each of thee governing bodies has a ranking. So let’s say, one to ten, and with the IBF, Pulev is number one. “That’s the next belt that I have to defend, so that’s why Pulev is my mandatory. If I don’t defend against Pulev, then the IBF will be removed from me, and then Pulev will fight [for the vacant IBF strap]. Do you know who the next mandatory challenger is? Charles Martin. “That’s the guy that I won the [IBF] belt from [in 2016]. So if I don’t fight and defend my belt, then it’ll be Pulev, and Charles Martin will fight. And so these are the obligations that you have to follow as a champion,” said Joshua. Giving up the IBF belt wouldn’t lessen the amount of interest in a future fight between Joshua and Fury. But for some reason, Joshua has his head wrapped up in the belief that he needs to capture all the major titles. Joshua may have the mistaken belief that unifying the heavyweight division will validate him in the eyes of the casual boxing fans. It won’t. read also:Joshua vs Fury breakdown: AJ’s ‘fragility’ could cost him in heavyweight fight, says Trainer Fans are too busy with their lives to be concerned about whether Joshua has one or all four of the major titles. It hurts Joshua’s career that he’s slowing up the momentum that he’s built up with his recent win over Andy Ruiz Jr. to defend against his IBF mandatory Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs), who the casual fans aren’t familiar with. The hardcore boxing fans see the 39-year-old Pulev as an older fighter, who is the token lamb for Joshua to slaughter in a showcase fight.
