A sweet little sensation on Salisbury Street!
This is circa-1930s character living at its very finest. The best of yesteryear, all rolled into one. The high ceilings, the tall original and openable north-facing windows, the solid wooden floorboards, and the classic extra-height skirting boards. All warming your heart whilst helping form the quietest and most secluded of private sanctuaries. There is potential to extend or build up too, if you aren’t just a down-sizer seeking somewhere special to live, close to the centre of old Subiaco. Just in case you are walking past, and you can’t find it – look for the beautiful big tree out front!

It simply doesn’t get much better than this. Nestled in leafy Subiaco and just minutes from the bustling cafe strip, life on Salisbury Street is the perfect balance of privacy and vibrancy. Forget the car, everything is on your doorstep. You’ll be spoilt for choice for your morning coffee with the likes of Boucla, Melograno, Community Coffee, Little Rokeby or even Blacklist and Architects & Heroes that little bit further down Rokeby Road. Brunch and lunch are just as easy with delicious options at Jean Claude, Red Chair, S’organic, Moe’s Sushi, 1982 and many more. Local watering holes like Juanita’s, Refuge, Cherubino City Cellar, Bark, Subi Hotel and Golden West Brewing Co offer relaxed spots for drinks and nibbles.
Stay local for dinner too by popping over to Piccolo Trattoria, Lady of Ro, Delisio, Dilly Dally, Lulu la Delizia, Chutney Mary’s or even delicious Greek fare at either Lady of Ro or George’s Meze. The likes of Grill’d, Six Senses, Caleb, Six Chopstix, Woodpeckers and a host of other fabulous spots are that little bit further away, but not too out of reach. Simon Johnson is around the corner for everything gourmet cheese, deli and smallgoods, Farmer Jacks have your groceries sorted, Woolies and Coles are down by Subi Square and Shenton Park’s Good Grocer is open 24 hours for anything else you need, day and night. Family-friendly Subiaco offers a variety of beautiful, shaded parks to picnic or entertain the little ones: our top pick is Richard Diggins, literally a stone’s throw away on nearby Park Street. The iconic Kings Park is on your doorstep and it’s an easy cycle down to Matilda Bay and our picturesque Swan River. Public transport is also a breeze with Subiaco Train Station and various bus routes at the end of the street. Perth CBD is just three kilometres away, or a scenic cycle or jog through Kings Park for the city commuter.
Day 1 in Subi: take a stroll through the gorgeous tree-lined streets and follow it up with coffee and a crusty flute baguette from Jean Claude Patisserie. It’s almost too good to be true!

WHAT THE OWNER SAYS
“Living on Salisbury Street has been better than we ever could have expected. We were drawn to the house for its beautiful bones, character features and natural light, and quickly discovered her hidden layers – perfectly private, central location, wonderful neighbours, and uplifting feel. The best of Subi is on your doorstep and the leafy suburb is a walker’s delight with cafes, bars and shops to visit along the way. The house itself is drenched in natural light year-round thanks to its northern aspect and we’ve loved living on one of Subi’s best tree-lined streets. Salisbury has ticked every box for us and is sure to absolutely delight its new owner! “
