This Renovated Character Subi Home Is Breathtaking

If you’ve always dreamt of a home that offers both character charm and contemporary cool, then we may have found just the one for you! Nestled in the heart of Subiaco, 6 Robinson Street stands as a testament to luxurious living and architectural artistry. When we say that when we first saw this home, it took our breath away, we mean it! The striking blend of modern elegance and timeless comfort leaves a lasting impression from the very first glance.


The pretty-as-a-picture facade of this character home gives some idea of what may lie beneath. At first impression, you can see that the exterior of the home has been beautifully modernised while still preserving its inherent character charm. Think lush landscaping paired with a sophisticated black picket fence that defines the property with a modern elegance. Immaculate tuckpointing highlights the craftsmanship of yesteryears, while dark detailing gracefully accentuates the brickwork. It’s the perfect blend of character and contemporary! This thoughtful renovation marries the home's historical essence with modern aesthetics, making it a standout home in the neighbourhood - all before you’ve even stepped through the front door!

From the moment you step inside the home, you'll be enveloped by the warmth and sophistication of this family retreat. It immediately becomes clear that this home is not just a residence; but a masterpiece that’s been meticulously crafted to offer the best in comfort and style. Recently transformed by interior designer Jess O’Shea Designs, every inch of this property exudes bespoke detailing and unparalleled workmanship. Original period features of the home are complemented by more contemporary design choices throughout the home, creating a space that is both warm and homely as well as interesting to the eye. Dark stained jarrah floorboards throughout the first part of the home add depth and warmth to the interior while limestone tiles in the kitchen and living area enhance the texture and character of the space. In this first part of the home, you’ll also find three bedrooms (including the master with a luxurious walk in robe and dreamy ensuite), study and sitting area. At the centre of the home lies an internal alfresco (it’s north facing too, may we add!) that serves as both a visual and accessible centrepiece from multiple rooms within the home. Bring the outdoors in by opening up the luxe, steel framed doors and soak up the outlook from the study, sitting room and kitchen.

6 Robinson Street is not just about the elegance within its walls; it’s about the lifestyle it offers. Located just a leisurely stroll from the bustling cafes, restaurants, and shops of Rokeby Road, this home places you at the centre of one of Perth’s most vibrant areas. Defined by character homes and a cosmopolitan flair, the locals of this neighbourhood enjoy the luxury of having everything within arm's reach. Stroll down to Subi Farmers Market to pick up the freshest produce for the week, indulge in a coffee from one of the many cafes nestled in the neighbourhood and pick up an artisanal loaf from a nearby bakery: this is what Saturday mornings look like in this locale. Beyond the vibrancy of Subiaco, you’re also in close proximity to Kings Park, Perth City, the Swan River, UWA, hospitals, premium schools as well as easy freeway access to the rest of Perth.


While you may expect a classic character home that has been transformed for modern living, you may not expect the level of bespoke detailing and finishes in this home. The owners, obsessed with unique architectural finishes, have spared no expense in creating a home that harmoniously blends family living with aesthetic grandeur. The result is a home that is both inviting and awe-inspiring. While the entire home is out of this world, the kitchen is undoubtedly the star of the show.

As you step into the open plan kitchen and living area, the bold interior palette and curves of the kitchen immediately capture your attention. The kitchen island, resembling a piece of art, perfectly mixes colour and pattern, setting the tone for a home that’s not afraid to stand out. We love the use of deep, rich tones in the kitchen: the warm marble, the brass rangehood feature and walnut cabinetry all work together to create a space that oozes both elegance and cosiness. But this home isn’t just about aesthetics: the home is as functional as it is visually appealing. Custom cabinetry in every room offers ample storage without sacrificing elegance, while an integrated fridge, high-end appliances and state of the art tapware ensure that even a last minute mid-week dinner is done in style. The same goes for the use of Velux skylights throughout the home that bathe the kitchen and bathroom in natural light.

Beyond the kitchen, you’ll find a casual dining area and the living area all in the open plan space. The dining area is framed by baby blue, floating custom joinery. While some could think that this would clash with the warm, red tones in the kitchen’s marble - it just works. It’s these unique elements that work together to create a home unlike we’ve ever seen before, proving that the owners of this home knew what they were doing. The result is a one-of-a-kind home that spares no expense and can’t be found elsewhere. This kitchen brings a lively splash of colour, offering a unique twist on traditional styles - no boring, all white kitchen to be seen here!

Floor-to-ceiling steel doors lead you from the living area to the backyard, merging indoor and outdoor living seamlessly. The outdoor oasis is a versatile haven, masterfully designed to cater to all occasions. Featuring lush green grass, an undercover area and a Santa Fe style plunge pool, this space will effortlessly adapt to your needs whether your hosting friends and family or just relaxing and enjoying a quiet moment of solitude. Not only does the pool provide the perfect backdrop to while away days in the sun, but the custom concrete in-ground mineral salt pool also provides a luxurious and healthful swimming experience. If this home wasn’t already perfect, the self-contained studio above the rear of way garaging is the cherry on the cake! This studio is the perfect platform for multigenerational living, guests from interstate, older kids who crave their own space or just an extra living space when you need. Whatever you decide to do with this space, you have a home that offers unique possibilities in how you can live in and enjoy this idyllic residence.
