Subiaco has a lot of charming, leafy streets – in fact, the suburb is practically filled with them! But there’s one in particular that we are always drawn to on strolls in the area… The itty-bitty, quirky, tree-lined Robinson Street.
Today, we’re taking a sneak peek inside the particularly lovely 6 Robinson Street, currently for sale and designed by interior design practice Jess O’Shea Designs. Its tuck-pointed Federation-era façade has been meticulously maintained, fitting seamlessly into the streetscape – and concealing the modern addition at the rear.
Like the façade, the spaces at the front of the home have similarly preserved the character of the era – intricate ceiling roses and cornicing, fireplaces and timber flooring… With the additional contemporary convenience of custom built-in storage, of course.
At the heart of the home, an internal courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy warm summer evenings under the stars.
Directly adjoining the courtyard is arguably the show-stopping star of the home: that stunning kitchen.
The floor to ceiling cabinetry! The Rosso Trentino marble! The brass hood! The limestone tiles! Even the flush-mount Zetr power points! The details and finishes are truly unmatched, to the extent it’s quite possibly sent us into a bit of an existential spiral…
The home’s bathrooms and laundry continue the immaculate sense of luxury of the rest of the home, with more meticulous custom cabinetry, CDK Monreale Marble, Yabby tapware and Velux skylights.
At the rear of the block, things truly take a modern turn, with a self-contained studio perched atop the garage, overlooking the custom in-ground mineral salt pool.
