And here’s to you, Mrs Robinson

And here’s to you, Mrs Robinson

Dotted with subtle nostalgic references, the Robinson by Pindan Homes draws inspiration from the rich history of its location at Seven Hills estate.

In researching the history of Channel 7 studios in the area, the Pindan Homes team found the studio’s early years were dominated by male broadcasters.

This prompted the naming of the display after Barbara Robinson, one of the few female news presenters to appear in the 1960s.

From the moment you step inside the stunning home, you will notice a timeless Hamptons aesthetic that is beautiful, stylish and inspired in every way.

The striking redbrick feature wall divides not only the front and back of the house, but leads up to the first storey, which houses the bedrooms and an additional seating area.

Pindan Homes General Manager Simon Greenlaw said it was about taking the humble brick wall and “making it cool again”.

“We have looked at some of Perth’s great building products and cast them in a new light,” he told New Homes.

As stunning as it is practical, the kitchen boasts white cabinetry, black handles and an abundance of space. The laundry seamlessly integrates into the scullery, opening out to a kitchen with two sinks, an induction cooktop and double ovens.

Driven by the relaxed style of the Hamptons, the integrated living, kitchen and dining area creates a simultaneous flow between all rooms of a home that is consistently flooded with natural light.

Complete with a double vanity, walk-in robes and a freestanding bath, careful consideration was given to the tiling selection to ensure timeless beauty and an ageless ensuite to the master bedroom.

According to Mr Greenlaw, a key goal in the design was to create an attainable home with the right number of rooms, without going overboard.

“The rooms encourage communication and interaction – to play and be a family,” he said.

“The Robinson was built with a growing family in mind, or for those who are downsizing but want plenty of room for the grandkids. We wanted a home that could house the whole family, or those about to start one.”

The Robinson comes in a choice of different floor plans and specifications to suit a range of lifestyles.

“Paying homage to one of the first females in Perth television, we thought it fitting to name our Hamptons-esque, nostalgic-style design that captures the timeless beauty of a bygone era after someone who was breaking barriers in the 1960s,”
Mr Greenlaw said.

The Robinson is open for viewing on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm.
