Carmella's apartment 2007-2008
Residents: Carmella Cammeniti (2007-2008), Chloe Cammeniti (2008), Marco Silvani (2008)
Following revelations about her secret relationship with younger Ringo Brown, Carmella Cammenti was thrown out of 30 Ramsay Street by Ringo’s brother, Frazer. After a spell living back at home with her mum, Carmella started thinking about looking for somewhere else to live and, when she found out she was pregnant, the baby’s father, Oliver Barnes, offered to buy a property for her. Proud Carmella eventually accepted, but made him rent out a shabby apartment for her. When Carmella then went to Italy, where her Aunt Maria had just died, Oliver cleaned up the apartment for her and decorated a nursery.
When Carmella went into premature labour seven months into the pregnancy, friends and family rallied around when it looked like little baby Chloe might not make it, due to breathing difficulties. Oliver and his mum, Rebecca, stocked up Carmella’s kitchen cupboards and cleaned the place up ready for Carmella, and a few days later, Chloe’s homecoming. Following the traumatic birth, Carmella split up with her boyfriend, Marco Silvani, deciding that she had to concentrate on her new daughter, but later realised that she was cutting off her nose to spite her face. She and Marco were reunited and she asked him to move in. They soon realised that the flat wasn't really big enough for the three of them and, after losing out on a bid for 26 Ramsay Street, they started renting number 24.
• The set for Carmella’s apartment was the same one that had been used a few months earlier for the Napier house, which in turn had been adapted from Karl’s apartment and Libby & Drew’s flat, and was used again later in 2008 as Angus' flat
