One Robin is a freehold condominium development at 1 Robin Road, located near Bukit Timah in prime District 10. The boutique development consists of a single 17-storey residential tower that houses 14 units. The top four floors of the condominium accommodate two separate four-bedroom duplexes, while the rest of the units are three-bedders ranging from 1,948 sq ft to 1,905 sq ft in size.

Based on URA caveats, the duplex unit under the private treaty sale had previously changed hands for about $6 million ($1,712 psf) in May 2012. The unit had been bought from the developer for $4.81 million ($1,375 psf) in June 2009.

In the URA caveats compiled by EdgeProp Singapore, One Robin commands an average price of $1,529 psf. This is below the average asking prices set by most of the surrounding freehold residential developments.
