20 The Age, Friday 14 June 1985 t'H ffttt vs S V s J. sj'ce of Walter Butler's old masterpiece By JOHN WESTWOOD DAME Nellie Melba is among the past residents of a remarkable development of flats at Toorak, one of which has come onto the market, a rare event in itself. Preview this week looks at 7A41 Tintern Avenue, where Melbourne architect Walter R. Butler at the turn of the century built a fine home for himself and his wife, who was Millicent Howard, of the Howards who established a grazing property east of the city, named Studley Park. Butler named his Toorak bouse Studley, but its character changed to a remarkable degree about 1918 when he had the idea of adding some flats to it He built some on the tennis court, a few more on the main block near the house and also turned the house proper into a series of maisonettes. This man however was no speculator. He was not in search of a fast buck, it seems; his aim was more in line with creating a garden setting where "respectable" people (vetted by Butler himself) could live in peace and tranquillity. The idea took off, and Butler's flats were always in demand. He did not sell his flats, preferring to rent them to the right folk, among them in later years being Dame Nellie Melba Butler wrote to her in 1924 asking if she would care to become a tenant, and she wrote back from Coombe Cottage, Coldstream saying how delighted she was with his proposition. Soon after that, she did agree to rent a flat and her letter of acceptance was produced for our perusal by the present owner of 7A, who sent us a copy of it and a later note from her to Mr Butler inviting him to dinner and the opera, but also asking him to tell his gardener not to mix red and magnolia flowers in the grounds "quite so much". Flat 7A41 Tintern Avenue, Toorak is to be auctioned tomorrow at noon by Bennison Mackin-non Real Estate (20 8761) and it virtually is in the condition Butler would have wanted. The gardens still are beautifully preserved and indeed the agents call the flat "an enchanting garden apartment". They must be right The accommodation is generous, two bedrooms, study, kitchen, plus large livingroom flowing into a diningroom which looks out onto a slate-paved terrace and gardens. The flat to be sold is ground floor, and includes spacious bathroom, laundry facilities, a box-room and car parking space. The owner tells us also that in Butler's day, the house was the scene of many gracious parties enjoyed by the social set of Toorak although life changed for the family when the Butlers' only son, Howard, was killed in a plane crash during World Wan I. It was after that that Walter Butler conceived the idea of turning the house into flats and building further flats in the grounds. His work in design of the floor plans and the landscaping of the gardens still is a tribute to a brilliant man of vision. Walter Butler died in 1949 and his wife in 1954 and gradually the family sold off flats to selected buyers. The flat being sold tomorrow finally severs the links, because it is the last one in the ownership of a relative of the family line architect Mr David Alsop. The Butler house in 1918 title changed today. - S . LJi - r- '- : '- - The E-type Jaguar . . one of these superbly powerful cars has been acquired by Whitehorse Motors. The Jaguar to beat all Jaguars . By 'Age' motoring writer CHRIS DE FRAGA THE woman in the Jaguar waved over the yellow E-type Jaguar ahead and offered its driver boiled sweets. It was a classic man bites dog situation and the type was on its way to Whitehorse Motors where it wears a price of $35,000. The two Jaguar drivers had met, but the E-type is one of those cars where this situation sometimes has been described in reverse. That yellow E-type is an unusually good example of the car which Jaguar launched with a proper performance image. The XK120 was launched in the late 1940s with a 120 mph (193 kmh) run down the Jabbeke motorway in Belgium. The first road test of the Jaguar E-type showed a 150 mph (241 kmh) maximum. That was on 3.8 litres of that big, double overhead camshaft, six-cylinder engine. That model had the glass over the headlights, which was later removed mainly for the American market, and a high floor inside. The car at Whitehorse Motors, a 4.2 litre Series II, should have had a top speed not far short of that 241 kmh. The E-type went through a meta-morphoris as its designers shifted the focus from a Le Mans style road going racing sports car to something of a less terrifying, almost tame cat for American consumption. Florida traffic was so slow that the warmer local air moved through the radiator a little too slowly. So the radiator opening was enlarged in the Mk II model. This also allowed air conditioning, although the yellow car at Whitehorse Motors does not have this. It is refreshingly original in most respects. In any case, air conditioning introduced new problems engine heat rose again. And if you drove the car really fast, the air rushed through the radiator so quickly, they said, that it no longer cooled the car properly. Enthusiasm for E-types is growing around the world. The previous E-type I had been in was driven last year by a Swedish engineer in his clogs of course around the narrow byways at the back of Gothenburg. Driven only in summer months when Gothenburg did not need to salt the roads to melt the snow, the E-type in Sweden had not a trace of rust and it was the immaculate result of months of loving restoration in a heated garage at the back of the house. At the same garage, a special racing AC-Cobra is now taking shape. Driving the yellow car recently showed why E-types retain their appeal. It can still produce enormous acceleration and it really does not matter much which gear it is in . . . it is a little like a V8 in that; there is plenty of power. The condition of the car at Whitehorse Motors was unusually good, good enough to back the log books which said the car had travelled only 41,000 miles showing on its speedometer at the hands of its two owners. The carpets were clean, the leather of the seats neat and supple and the luggage compartment must have seen precious few bags. It was pristine. At least it had a big luggage compartment The open roadster in Sweden simply had a well-trimmed narrow boot slot which would take a fat briefcase and little more unless it was in crushable luggage. The open E-type certainly looked the best of the three models but the two-seater coupe was much better proportioned than the 2 plus 2 model fashioned to suit an imagined need for carrying people in the back. Its seating was always too small for that to be practical for more than sub-teen children. The E-type is proving a worthwhile investment Reasonable examples are bringing more than $30,000. The yellow Series II cost less than $10,000 when new some 17 years ago. Those brought to Australia like the yellow by the agents came with some of the options offered in England such as wire wheels. The yellow car had chromed wire wheels and they seemed to suit the car. Under the bonnet was not quite in the super-pristine concours condition of the Swedish car but it was particularly neat and original. The good thing about the E-types was that they were not particularly fussy cars. Their triple carburettors needed to be properly set up and, being SU carburettors, they went off-tune rapidly. But they would hold about 90-95 per cent of tune without much attention. It is a shame that the "big cat" of sports cars cannot really stretch out on our roads any more. It was streamlined from the side as well as the front a hangover of the work done on the D-type racing Jaguar for Le Mans where the long Hunaudieres straight was famed for cross winds. Having that huge Jaguar engine under the long bonnet meant the E-type would follow its nose faithfully, sometimes understeering more than expected. It had all-independent suspension of a soft but most effective sort The ride was exemplary. The brakes, discs at each corner, were powerful, but a touch soft on the pedal in the yellow car we saw this week. But it was a luxuriously finished car which included far above average performance in its attractions.
