A retro vacation house located in Yamashina ward which is located on the east side of Kyoto city, passed the mountains of Higashiyama.

With over 500 sqm of land area, this property consists of the residential building and warehouse building.

ー Residence ー

The retro residence was built back in the 1980s by an owner with the hobby of collecting antiques and photo shooting. The building gets plenty of sunshine from the south, with the palm tree to give additional tropical atmosphere.

  • 1F

    You have enough privacy as the building is located higher than road level and with the bushes surrounding the garden. While currently two tatami rooms are facing the garden, you can also make it one spacious living room with some renovations.

  • Entrance Hall

    As you enter the house, you can find a spiral staircase quietly illuminated by light from the window facing north, with a combination of different materials on the wall.

  • 2F

    On the second floor, there is the classy carpet room that was used for reception. The strength of steel frame structure is utilized on the floor-to-ceiling windows. As you are out in the balcony, refresh yourself with the views of higashiyama mountains.

Area Map

As the property is close by national route 1, it is convenient for people who prefers driving over public transportation. That said, it is also accessible by taking a bus from Subway "Higashino" station.

Parking space in front of the warehouse is enough for 3 cars. With the street width of 6.8m it is easy to drive in and out of the parking lot.


*This property is mortgaged by the seller. It can only be sold to people with a Japanese bank account and can attend the closing meeting in person for smoother transaction which includes the discharge of the mortgage before officially handing the property to the buyer.
